Hello cuties! Here I am, late as always! ;)
Today is day 12 for me. The theme is stripes!





I'm really happy with these nails! Seriously, I did a great job!
The base is a light sea foam green shimmer by China Glaze and it's called Keep Calm, Paint On. I love this polish. It's delicate and pretty and clean and cool at the same time. It's perfect! I've used it before in a couple of manicures, like this one, and I just love it.
I freehanded the stripes with a striping brush and these are the colors I used:
OPI Fiercely Fiona
OPI Who The Shrek Are You?
China Glaze Papaya Punch
I♥Layla N.07 (THANK YOU MARIA!)
Cult Nails Riot

I placed two neon orange studs* from Born Pretty Store on the pinkie and the pointer.

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!
First of all; I have updated the Gradient post! Check it out!
Second of all; this challenge will last for a lot more than 31 days. Doesn't matter, I love doing this!

Today I've been studying. Yeah. That's all. So let's talk nails instead!
Polka dots for day 11!





I don't like these pictures. They're fine, but they're not good. Just so you know.

The base of this manicure is Nordic Cap NP12 and NP13. Then I used China Glaze First Mate to make the dots on the white nails. I don't know if you can see it, but there's actually a gradient going on in the dots. To get that effect I just mixed First Mate with my white polish and then again with the black polish.
I did the same thing on the black nail but I used Nfu Oh 394 instead.
Then I put a fimo bow on my middle and my ring finger, and a square stud on the other nails.
Finished with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Hi guys! It's almost 1am here in Sweden and I just finished the nails for day 11, and as you probably understand I won't post them today. Or I will post them today, but after I had my sleep.

I'm sorry, but I'm really busy right now. I have my final project in school (then internship and then graduation), so I've been studying all day. I'll see you tomorrow though! I PROMISE!

Goodnight babes!

#31DC2014 | Day 9 - Rainbow

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 -

Heeeelloooo guys! It's saturday! How fun! I'm going to play some games with my friends. Do you have any plans for this evening?
Today it's day 9 and the theme is rainbow. Check out what I did!




I made some stamping decals with Konad m61, Nordic Cap NP12 and acrylic paint. Unfortunately my acrylic paint is a bit too dark, so I didn't get the look I was aiming for.
The base is Alana Renee It's A Surprise, which is a white shimmer with a yellow tone. Looks pretty white on these pictures though. It's not that white in real life.
The glitter is Worst. Polish. Ever. by Happy Hands. This was also a birthday gift that I got from Ulrika last year. It's not the worst polish ever. It's actually pretty amazing. The applications is flawless! Too bad Happy Hands don't do polishes anymore.

I do like this manicure, even though it didn't turn out the way I wanted. What do you think?

#31DC2014 | Day 8 - Metallic

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 -

Let's face it, I probably won't be able to post twice in one day any day soon, so I should probably stop saying that I'll try to do it. 'Cause there's no time for that.
I do have time for quick posts though, most of the time. So here's another quick one, which is Metallic.




I don't think I actually own any polishes with real metallic finish. I do own foils, but not a smooth metallic. You know, that kind that almost always have a shitload of brushstrokes? Not own any of those.
So, I decided to use one of my foils and studs to represent the metallic part in this manicure. The base is Rodeo Fanatic by China Glaze which Antonia gave me for my birthday last year. I don't know why I haven't used it until now 'cause it is simply amazing. Easy application, almost a one coater and there's a tiny hit of duochrome to it. I love it!
I did the triangles with a silver Depend polish, but I don't know the name right now, and the black is Nordic Cap NP12, as usual.
Yep. That's all for today! Have a nice evening.

#31DC2014 | Day 7 - Black & White

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 -

Hello there! So, I didn't put up a post yesterday. I thought I'd have time to post a short one, but then I went to my friends house to take a cup of coffee and then suddenly it was the middle of the night and I was like "nope, not going to edit pictures and write a post now". So. Yeah.
Here's yesterday's post, and I'll post another post later today. I hope. Lol!
Day 7 is black and white. I did a really quick manicure.



So, there's not much explaining to do here. I used Nordic Cap NP13 as my base and then stamped the crackle-ish pattern (which actually is tree branches) with plate 10 from MoYou London Suki Collection and Nordic Cap NP12. It works for stamping, but as you can see it's like it's too slippery. Which is really annoying.
Anyway, I really like how this turned out! Now I really need to study.
See you later!
