Nails for someone else.

Heyyy you guys!

I’m sorry I’ve been away for awhile. I got this “greatest flu-virus of the year” in January, and last thing I want to do while sneezing my brains out and coughing my sides sore, is to smell acetone and nail polish.
I have done few simple manis for myself, just plain one color or basic french, and it didn’t even come to my mind to take pictures of them.

My sister was visiting us at the end of Jan, so I promised I’d fix her nails if nothing else. She found this one picture from @nailsbyfreckles, and told me that she wanted those. (I don’t have the link to the original picture, but I believe you can find this profile from Instagram.)

I had to shorten her nails a bit, well, a bit more because she had broken two of her nails, and she said that never they have been so short 😀  I’m actually thinking that I need to take “before and after” pics next time I fix her nails, the change is quite effective!

First I went on with Essie Blank for two layers. After it dried up a little, I lined nails half with a thin brush and Essie Turquoise & Caicos and finally filled the halves in.

Then I lined middle parts again with Essie Licorice and did the polka dot pattern with a dotting tool. In original picture there is  a rhinestone or a full bow tie charm on the nail, but we wanted these to last longer, so I just painted the bow tie on ring finger and thumb. I finished with Essence Satin Matte topcoat and done!

She was happy and so was I, these are cute and suit well for a K-pop fan, such as my sis 😀 Always glad to make a customer satisfied! Yet shitty lighting in pics!

Links are attached just to help you find some great stuff, I have bought all the products with my own money and my opinion is honest. C’mon, I have no sponsors yet!

I really need to take a “how to name your blogposts” lesson 😀

This is the first mani I made after the trip, and I love it! Well, nothing ever goes as planned, I was supposed to do the gradient other way around, but other then that 😀

I sponged polished straight on top of base coat, and I used four different colors:

Essie Bikini so Teeny
Essie Make Some Noise
Essie Bell-bottom Blues
W7 Blue Lagoon

After four layers of sponging, I topped it of with Essence I ❤ Magic and KbShimmer I Only Have Ice For You to make a vision of a starry night sky.

Then I stamped this deer on my ring finger, from HeHe plate 032 (Harry Potter-collection) with Mundo de Uñas Blac and finally topped everything with Essence Satin Matt.

And so it happened that it’s truly freezing in here, -18 Celsius, so my nails fit the weather too! I like the end result, even though I was meant to reverse the gradient, and my new clear stamper from Dashica didn’t make it too perfect while stamping.

Stay warm!
