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

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. Usain Bolt has been a pleasure to watch! The Japanese gymnasts! The marathon runners! Yes, I’ve really gotten into the Olympic spirit. … Continue reading

12 posts of Christmas: 12. Merry Xmas!

I’m on the plane right now to Australia where I will be spending Christmas with my family (no we’re not Australian, just decided to migrate to warmth this year). So all that’s left is for me to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  

12 posts of Christmas: 11. Christmas Eve look

This is the manicure that I’ve been wearing today, on Christmas Eve. Quite simple, red base – the ultimate Christmas colour  and then a stylistic tree and heart detail in miniature gold balls (I don’t really know what else to call them!). I hope you liked it!!!

12 posts of Christmas: 9. Multicoloured nails

This is another manicure from last year, multicoloured, festive and quite easy to do! I hope I inspire you, obviously any colour combinations can work – but it’s fun to use more than three colours, and alternate them across all of the nails. You can use tape to get the lines perfect, but this ‘triangle’ … Continue reading

12 posts of Christmas: 8. Guess who is coming to town?

Ho Ho Ho! There’s no Christmas without Santa Claus, St. Nick, Jultomten, or whatever name you have for him! I found some cute Santa nail art inspiration to share with you. As always, click on the image to be taken to the original tutorial/blog, and see how it was done!          

12 posts of Christmas: 7. Christmas details

These are the nails I’ve been sporting so far this week, and I love them. Flashy, bit of bling, festive and office-appropriate (well my office has really gone for it this year, we have two Christmas trees and we’re only 30 employees!) I started off with a gold base, I wore just the gold colour … Continue reading

12 posts of Christmas: 6. Holiday holly inspiration

I wanted to post some inspiration ideas for a holiday manicure featuring holly, so here you go. As far as manicures goes, this motif is so pretty and easily recognisable. It can a bit tricky but it is very effective! Tomorrow I’ll post another one of my own designs – stay tuned!       … Continue reading

12 posts of Christmas: 5. Nail polish gift sets

The holidays are about many things, and presents are pretty high up on most peoples’ lists! Here are some of my favourite nail polish sets that I wouldn’t mind finding in my stocking!             What do you think? Did I miss any spectacular gift sets?

12 posts of Christmas: 3. Candy Cane sweetness

It’s the ultimate holiday candy right? Well, probably more so in the US, but still, it’s permeated here in Europe. I love these designs and I am so inspired by them. I think this is a pretty good idea for ‘easy’ nail art. Red nail polish, white stripes (any thickness really), and ta daa! I … Continue reading
