I recently discovered that a Danish webshop sells Color Club polishes, which I’ve wanted to try for a while, but I was never prepared to pay the delivery costs for international shipping. And what was even better, was that they were having a sale! Of course, I jumped at the chance to try out a nice selection of polishes because you can never really evaluate a brand based on one or two polishes. I may have gone a little overboard, but Continue reading
Exam season is upon me once again. Even though this is my 8th exam season since starting university, it just never gets easy or fun. Leave it to the procrastinator to leave things to the last minute when I could have started months ago -.- .. Maybe I’ll learn some day.
Anyway, summer is here (hence the procrastination and spending time outside instead of locked up with my computer). My nail art still lingers a little bit in spring in terms of color selection. Here is a soft pastel sideways gradient plus roses mani.

- Essie – Virgin Snow
- Essie – Peak Show
- China Glaze – Material Girl
Have you noticed how around Valentine’s Day all nail art looks are some shade of pink? Yeah, me too. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pink nail polish as much as the next girl, I just don’t feel like adding to the pile myself, which is why I’ve gone in another direction for a look that is definitely V-day appropriate, but not as traditional.

- Maybelline – Midnight Taupe
- OPI – My Private Jet
This one is a little more festive than what I was going for in terms of an everyday look, but I think it would look awesome for a party or something. I DID rock this one to work, so it all depends on your desired level of glam for the day, I suppose.
I did the stripes by applying striping tape over the purple and then sponging the gold glitter on near the cuticle area.
- Cool Nails – Purple
- Nicole by OPI – Lips are dripping honey
I’m a nail polish hoarder. I keep all the ones I’m given, and I buy too many myself. After having bought some in November/December and receiving some for my birthday and christmas, I didn’t really have any space left in the drawer I keep them in, so I decided it was time to declutter and get rid of some.
I have divided them into 4 categories: Base and top coats, Empty/dry polishes, Don’t really use (anymore) and Dislikes.
Base and top coats
This category consists of base and top coats that I’ve kept as backups after buying new ones. You know, the bottles that are almost used up and impossible to use, but you convince yourself that it would be a waste to throw away that last drop? Yes, those ones. Continue reading
I didn’t really know what to call this one, so bear with me on the name 😉
This is a really subtle look that’s perfect for when you want that little bit extra without going all the way.

After I got this BORN PRETTY Christmas Nail Art Starry Sky Silicone Head Stamper I got the desire to stamp again. After having used my clear stamper without luck a number of times, I wasn’t really expecting this to work, but this is SO much better! I definitely recommend these silicone head stampers.
After the bright orange manicure, I was in the mood for something subtle, but nice, and I think I hit the nail on the head with this one.
