Today’s the day! Ice hockey world championship final! Finland made it to final and is going head to head with Canada.
Final game starts at 20.45 (GMT+2) and we’re cheering for Finland naturally.
A bar or a pub, game-shirts, anything white and blue are included in look of the day, so are my nails!
Captain calling, a goal, Finnish flag and some glitter and gold, those are my recipe to victory. Here you go:
I started out with Essie Blanc, which is base to all my nails. Then I did a gradient with Blanc and Colors by Llarowe Independence Day (how convenient) to all but ring fingers.
Ring fingers got a cross painted on with Kick Sugar Lacquer Majorelle Garden.
Pinky got a frosting with KbShimer Dust in the Bottle.
I stamped the net on middle finger from BundleMonster BM-209. Black stamping polish is Mundo de Uñas Black and red edges are painted on with Essie Dress to Kilt.
C for captain is from NailzCraze NC05, also with MdU Black
“Keep calm and Hammertime” is stamped with MdU Gold from MoYou London Rebel 05.
I’m really happy how these turned out, I also matched my make up to these 🙂
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.
Just a quickie post, before I need to go to work. And this is why we celebrated our Halloween already on Wednesday 🙂 Ofc we also had a Jack o’ Lantern carved, but I still don’t have a proper pic out of it, so here’s our orange-chocolate-cake:
My nails are Hallocute, not hallocreepy this year. I wanted to try out this “round gradient” (or whatthahell it is?) where the middle is lighter.
I picked out Essie Fear & Desire and O.P.I I just can’t Cope-Acabana and a sponge and made my base on top of one layer of Essie Blanc.
Then I scratched my head for a while, I’ve lost my graveyard stencils btw, and went through my stamping plates.
Finally I picked out Born Pretty Stores BP-59 and stamped these witches black cats with MdU Black, with MdU White in their eyes.
I actually love the result! Happy Hallows eve everybody!
