Mermaid Nails
I've decided to take a little summer vacation from the blog. The coming month I will update rarely but I plan on being back to my regular twice per week schedule in mid August at the latest. What better manicure to share than a mermaid inspired look before ...

Mountain Nails
I'm back from my conference and naturally have mountain nails to show today. Sadly I was not successful in climbing the mountain that was part of our conference agenda. It was simply too steep for me with the pace the guide set for our ascent. But, at least...

Discreet Holo Nails
A scheduled post while I'm away on my conference/mountain hike. I wore this manicure last weekend when I needed something that would look okay even after four days, hence the discreet colour scheme. Polishes used: OPI My Vampire is Buff and Color Club Cosmi...

Henna Stained Nails
I got the urge to combine brown and pink the other day, this is how it turned out! The brown stamping ended up paler than I had anticipated which reminds me a bit of henna, but with a holo touch. I enjoyed this manicure as a nice contrast to the bolder pink...

Easy Dry Brush and Foil Nails
Finally some new nails! I created this design based on some inspiration from So Nailicious . This style might not be for everyone (I'm pretty sure my sister would hate it!), but I enjoyed it a lot! Something that I particularly liked was that it gave me the...
