Neon green for sail

Hello dearies! Long time not seen my nails (mwah mwah.)
So yes! Finally I have something to look at on my nails! Wohoo!

Finally, spring is here (it is, what do you mean it still rains and/or snows? Shush!) and it’s time to take out the pastels and NEONS! I love neon colors on my nails and my make up!

This time I started out with Essie Blanc and coated it with KbShimmer For Sail By Owner. So briiight it hurts my eyes. Lovely, loooovely neon green!

I didn’t have the time nor the interest to do anything that takes too much time (it was 4am), so once again, stamp stamp stamp.

For stamping I used MdU Black and Fauxnad plate QA8.

Okay, my nails are not that even, but better than before. I broke both my middle finger nails, left index and almost my thumb. Yay.

Then i went through my “box of pretty nail decorating thingies” and found my black square studs. Attached them with clear polish and coated everything with Essie Gel Setter.

Visiting my hairstylist

This visit I did actually over a month ago, and now my hair is all blue but don’t let it bother you right now!

My hairdresser is The Best Lady in the world, she never lets me down when talking about hair! We have all had those bad hair days, even when walking out from the salon, so a great hairstylist for a lady is worth more than his/her weight in gold. You so know what I’m talking about.

I’ve had it all, brown, red, violet, dark lilac, more red, fake drealocks, short, long, short on the side, and my own hair color is blond like a straw. I went with my natural color for few years, after many many years of dying, just with a little twist.
I had a rainbow in the mid-layer, pink ends, green and blue, pink and purple and who remembers what color on the side. Last summer my stylist colored my hair pale pink, and last autumn she colored my hair gray with a purple front, and I loved it. After it wore out, I still had most of my head in my natural color until mid March.

I went in on the morning, too early, so I’m not wearing any makeup in the pictures, sorry 😀 And all photos I took with my Samsung GS4 , some with the front camera, so the quality is what it is.

This is what we started with, my natural hair with worn off red lenghts.

At first she used the color removal on lengths, and second time for all the hair. My head dealt great with the blonding, no burns and no dried up hair.

No, I’m really not that bald 😀

Then she went in with the blue, this was the moment I wasn’t so sure about the color choice anymore. Blue color is a direct dye from Schwarzkopf, Igora ColorWorx (Concentrate Blue.)

And lavender on my lengths. She mixed multiple coloring products for this, and I still have no idea what. I don’t think that she has either 😀

End result was to die for! But one shiiiizkebab to keep it up, I only bought the blue color. Like I told you in the beginning, my hair is almost all blue at the moment, just a bit paler on the ends. But I still love it, and I think that this is the color is a keeper.

Parturi-Kampaamo Roc can be found in Kemi, Finland, and Jenni is one hair-magician! I love her innovative style and she’s always ready even for the craziest ideas. As am I!

You can’t polish short nails?

I often hear from people I meet, that you can’t polish and decorate short nails, because there is no room and it doesn’t look pretty.
“Don’t look at my nails, they’re ugly!” or “Could you do me a manicure when my nails are longer?” are the most common things I hear.

No. I don’t care how your nails look, I don’t notice them unless you specifically show them to me. I know that everyone don’t have the time, chance or interest to spend 12 hours a week doing their nails, as I do.

And yes, I can do a mani for you then, but I could also do it now. Short nails are not “un-polishable”! Let me show you!

I have a friend who just cut her nails short, and has psoriasis, so her cuticles can be extremely dry from time to time. Today she had some worn off dark polish on her nails, so the change is more radical.

Here’s where we started from. Grown, dry cuticles, worn off polish and cut (not filed!) nails:

At first we showed some acetone to her nails.

I started with soaking her fingers in warm water, so that cuticles would soften up. Then I went around with Nfu’Oh Cuticle remover and a silicone pusher, cuticle cutters, filed free edges and buffed the surface. If you can’t wear polish because of your work etc., this is enough! Fixing your cuticles can make your nails look longer even without polish. So they look finished and cared of. Before filing and buffing, make sure that your nails are dry.

Then we got to the polish part. Essie First base is my go to base, for color we chose a pretty nude polish this time. Essie Sand Tropez got a layer of KbShimmer Owl Miss You on top. KbS OMY is sooo pretty, sand-like nude with little golden flakes in it. I bought this second hand from Eve’s Temptations.

Swirly stamp is from BundleMonster plate BM-607 and MdU Black. I topped the whole thing with Essie Good To Go. Some cleaning on the edges and we’re done. Pretty, decorated, short nails!
