Hi guys! WOW! It's been almost two months since I published the last post. I accidentally took a vacation and I think I needed that. I've missed you though! 
So, now I'm back again, and hopefully I can get some really nice blogging routines now. I've had some trouble with that for about a year now maybe. I don't know why, but I always have a lot to do, and the time just flies and I don't manage to do half of the stuff I was supposed to. So to save some time I'll write in English only from now. Hope that's okay with all of my Swedish readers.

Anyway. In the beginning of the summer I went to a music festival! It was fun, but the weather was crazy. Sunny one day, thunder the other. Someone (or maybe more than one) actually got hit by lightning! WHAT! Me and my friends are fine though.
Let me show you the nail art I rocked during the festival!




I started with painting my nails in OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Love that polish. Seriously, I might need to buy another bottle soon! 
Then I stamped my pointer and my middle finger using Nordic Cap NP12, Pueen 52 and Born Pretty Store XL stamper*.
I used Make It Stick Design vinyl chevron decals for the gradient chevron nails, and sponged a gradient over using Lime Crime Peaches <3 Cream and Parfait Day. Then I removed the decals and cleaned up around the nails.
My camera hates the Lime Crime polishes, it thinks that they are washed out pastels, not bright friggin almost-neon-pastels. 

Everything is topped with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat

Idag skriver jag bara på engelska, för att känna hur det känns. Hoppas det är okej med er!

Today I'm only writing in English. I want to try how that feels. Hope that's fine with you!
It's Sunday! How was your weekend?
Today I wanted to share the second, and last, manicure from the Born Pretty Store stud review that I published earlier this week. The design is kinda the same as the Liquid Teal manicure I showed you a while ago, but this one is magenta and a little bit different. Take a look!





This manicure was made with the same concept as Liquid Teal. I used the same techniques and the same base polish, but changed two polishes, the stamping plate and the stud. I decided what designs I wanted and then I just "shuffled" the designs on my hands, so my left hand and right hand wouldn't look the same. Don't be scared to have two hands with nails that "don't match", 'cause they do match, right? I mean color wise and such.

For this manicure I used China Glaze Liquid Leather as my black. China Glaze Don't Make Wine is the magenta-ish winey color, which works great for stamping. The stamping was made with Pueen plate 57 and Born Pretty Store XL Stamper*. The glitter polish is Model City Polish Sheena Is A Punk Rocker (I LOVE Ramones!!) and the stud is the colorful stud* I reviewed the other day.

I really like this kind of manicure, 'cause they're fast and easy to do and they look awesome and classy and cool at the same time.
I topped it all of with a coat (two coats on the glitter) of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Hej! Nu är min giveaway stängd och jag har mailat vinnarna. Ena vinnaren har svarat, men jag väntar på svar från vinnare numero två.
Idag tänkte jag visa er första manikyren i gårdagen recension. Jag kallar den Fancy Riot, för jag tycker att den är lite fancy. Vad tycker ni?

Hi! My giveaway is closed now and I have emailed the winners. One of the winners have answered, but I am waiting for an answer from winner numbero two.
Today I thought I would show you the first manicure in yesterdays review. I call it Fancy Riot, 'cause I think it is a bit fancy. What do you think?




Nu ska vi se om jag kommer ihåg allt jag använde. Det var ett tag sen jag bar manikyren.
Tumme: Cult Nails Riot, Ciaté Magic Carpet från Mini Mani Month 2012.
Pekfinger: Gradient med Riot och OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, en rosa rhinestone.
Långfinger: MBSW, en stor diamant, pärlor, blåa och silvriga rhinestones som skiftar lite i färg, rosa små rhinestones, silvriga kaviarpärlor och tre färggranna nitar* från Born Pretty Store.
Ringfinger: MBSW, leopardfläckar i Riot och Nordic Cap NP12.
Lillfinger: Nfu Oh GS06, China Glaze Nova, Impala Disco Ball.

Allting är toppat med Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Jag älskade de här naglarna. De är tuffa och fina på samma gång. Ser de inte coola ut? Fast samtidigt lite tjusiga? Jag tycker det! Jag är helt klart nöjd!


Let's see if I can remember what I used for these. It's been a while since I wore them.
Thumb: Cult Nails Riot, Ciaté Magic Carpet from Mini Mani Month 2012.
Pointer: Gradient with Riot and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, one pink rhinestone.
Middle: MBSW, one big diamond, pearls, blue and silver rhinestones that shifts color a little bit, pink small rhinestones, silver caviar beads and three colorful studs* from Born Pretty Store.
Ring: MBSW, leopard spots in Riot and Nordic Cap NP12.
Pinkie: Nfu Oh GS06, China Glaze Nova, Impala Disco Ball.

Everything is topped with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I loved these nails. They are edgy and pretty at the same time. Don't they look cool? But still fancy? I think so! I'm definitely satisfied!


NOTE: Not all products from China Glaze and OPI are vegan.

Review - Born Pretty Store Colorful Studs

Hej allihopa! Idag skriver jag en recension på en produkt från Born Pretty Store. De har skickat en del nail art prylar till mig, som ni vet, så jag kan recensera dem för er. Idag vill jag visa er några riktigt coola stenar/nitar/grejer som jag var riktigt sugen på att testa.
Manikyrerna i detta inlägget kommer få egna inlägg under veckan, så ni kommer inte få detaljerad information om dem i detta inlägg.

Hi everyone! Today I'm writing a review on a product from Born Pretty Store. They have sent me some nail art stuff, as you know, so I can review it for you. Today I wanna show you some really cool stones/studs/thingies that I was really excited to try.
The manis in this post will get a separate post during this week, so you won't get detailed information about them in this post.


Link to post!
[There will be a link here when the post is up]
Så, jag tänker alltså inte prata om manikyrerna i sig idag, men jag hoppas ni blir sugna på kommande inlägg!

De här små dekorationerna är multikromatiska och påminner om opaler lite, tycker jag. De är skitasnygga! Och jag älskar dom. De jag har testat är runda och 3mm stora, men det finns fler storlekar och former.
Paketet kommer med 10 stycken nitar i en liten plastficka. Du får alltså ingenting att förvara dem i, men jag antar att det är tänkt att du ska använda en på varje nagel, alltså använda upp alla på en gång. Det gjorde ju inte jag, så det går minsann bra ändå.

Jag har inte så mycket mer att säga om dessa nitar. De är väldigt vackra och coola. De är enkla att använda och lätta att fästa där du vill ha dem.

Sammanfattning:
Vad tyckte jag om produkten? Jag älskar!
Varför tycker jag så? För att de är riktigt coola.
Rekommenderar jag produkten? Ja, absolut!
Kommer jag köpa produkten igen? Det kommer jag definitivt göra.

Är ni sugna på dessa nitar kan ni hitta dem här! Och rabattkod hittar du under den engelska delen här nedanför.


So, I will not talk about these manicures today, but I hope that you'll get excited about upcoming posts!

These little decorations is multichromatic and reminds me a bit of opals, I think. They are friggin gorgeous! And I love them. The ones I've tried are round and 3mm big, but they are available in more sizes and shapes.
The package includes 10 studs in a little plastic bag. So you won't get anything to store them in, but I guess you're supposed to use one for each nail, so you'll use them all at once. But I didn't do that, and that went just fine.

I don't have that much more to say about these studs. They are very beautiful and cool. They're simple to use and easy to attach where you want them.

Summary:
What do I think of the product? I love!
Why do I think that? Because they are really cool.
Would I recommend this product? Yes, absolutely!
Will I buy this product again? I definitely will.

If you eager to buy these studs, you can find them here!

Misa Spaced Out

Green is veganBlue is cruelty freePurple might or might not be cruelty freeRed is not cruelty freePlease visit my "Animal Cruelty" page for more information -

Hej allihopa! Jag har något spännande att berätta. Vi har skaffat en katt! Hon är liten, fantastiskt snäll och söt och mysig och hon heter Loca. Lägger in en bild (eller fler) längst ner, eftersom jag vet att alla älskar katter, haha.
Idag tänkte jag visa er ett lack jag tänkte publicerat under United In Grey, men jag hann inte på grund av.. Ja, katt och Liseberg. Ni ska få se mitt enda lack från Misa. Varsågoda!


Hi everyone! I have something exciting to share with you. We got a cat! She is tiny, incredibly sweet and cute and cozy and her name is Loca. I'll insert a picture (or more) in the end of this post, 'cause I know that everyone loves cats, haha.
Today I thought I would show a polish that I planned to publish during United In Grey, but I didn't have time because of... Yeah, a cat and an amusement park. You will see my only polish from Misa. Here you go!



Spaced Out från Misa är ett grått lack med små partiklar, skimmerpartiklar faktiskt, som ser grå ut. De gör att lacket ser lite ut som betong ungefär. Men vet ni? De är inte helt grå. I solen kan du, om du tittar noga, se att de glimmar till i blått och rosa. Tyvärr är det fruktansvärt svårt att se.
Formlan var bra. Lite rinnigt kanske, men inget som skapar problem.
Två lager och ett lager Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Spaced Out from Misa is a grey polish with tiny particles, shimmer particles actually, which looks grey. They make the polish look a bit like concrete. But you know what? They aren't compleatly grey. In the sun you can see, if you look closely, that they gleam in blue and pink. Unfortunately it's really hard to see.
The formula was good. Maybe a bit runny, but nothing that causes trouble.
Two coats and one coat Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

And this is Loca! And me.




Don't forget my giveaway!

Hej allihopa! Åh vad roligt det är att läsa om er som deltagit i min giveaway hittills! Ni har jättebra musiksmak!
Idag har jag haft tenta, och det känns som att det gick bra. Jag gjorde iallafall mitt bästa.
Dagens inlägg är mitt första för temat United In Grey som Helena på Lacky Corner har ordnat för att uppmärksamma hjärncancer och hjärntumörer. Läs mer om det på hennes blogg!
Jag bidrar med en stampicure idag!


Hi everyone! Oh, it's so fun to read about all of you who have entered my giveaway so far! You have a great taste in music!
I had an exam today, and it feels like it went well. At least I did my best.

Todays post is my first for the theme United In Grey which Helena at Lacky Corner put together to support awareness of brain cancer and brain tumors. Read more about that on her blog!
I participate with a stampicure today!




Jag är ganska trött så jag håller mig kort.

Allt är toppat med Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.
