Sally Hansen's Diamond Strength in Deeply Violet seemed a perfect accompaniment to the new hair colour.

Olympic round up

So the London 2012 Olympics are now over. It came, it dazzled, it inspired, and now we can only hope the Paralympics is as awesome. I am looking forward to learning loads about it, and just getting back into watching new sports that I’ve never seen before! I had three posts on Olympic-inspired nail art … Continue reading

I used the paintbrush to make each small round medal.

Olympic manicure 2 – medals

So my other Olympic manicure got me a lot of compliments, but it was so colourful and bright, and it’s easy to get tired of a loud manicure. You immediately want to switch it up. Also, it’s only the Olympics every 4 years, so I needed to fit in at least one more look! This … Continue reading

The finished Team GB look!

Team GB

Wow, Team GB is doing so well in the Olympics! It’s so much fun to see! I’m supporting so many countries, my own native Sweden, Team GB, USA, and then some individual athletes.

Olympic rings

It’s the Olympics! Wohoo! I started doing this manicure when watching the Opening Ceremony. How weird, how wonderful, and how very British! I’m getting very excited to watch the Games, I predict most evenings now will be spent glued in front of the TV.                   Ingredients list … Continue reading

I got married!

There was good food, wine, dancing, singing, emotional speeches, laughter, tears (I didn’t think it was possible to cry so much and be so happy at the same time), photographs, hugging and love. Lots and lots of love. I did get a chance to … Continue reading

Wedding nails inspiration

I’m getting married very soon – in only a couple of weeks, and by now most pieces should have come together. Of course, I still haven’t decided on my shoes, how to wear my hair or my nails!! I don’t think I’ve been too much of a bridezilla, but it’s certainly been a stressful experience. … Continue reading

Jubilee Union Jack nails

Yay for the Queen. Yay for another bank holiday weekend! We’re having a bit of a party at work, so I’ve made a Union Jack chocolate cake, and I need the nails to match. I made these Union Jack style nails earlier, for the Royal wedding between Kate & Wills, but I thought I would … Continue reading

Spring pastels

Spring is here! This is definitively the time for pretty pastels, and why stick to one colour? Colourful nails is the trend, and if you don’t own lots of pastel colours yourself, maybe get together with some friends and pool together your collections and see what you can find. : )         … Continue reading

Close up of the polish - I think this was designed with me in mind! : )

Crocodile

People who know me well know that I am a huge fan of reptiles, crocodilians in particular. It’s weird, but it has always been the case. My sister saw the Barry M Croc Effects nail polish and immediately bought it for me – thank you sis! And now I present you with a reptilian manicure. … Continue reading
