Violet Half-Moon Nails

Hello lovelies, finally my nails are long enough to do proper French nails. Well this time I mixed up half-moons and French tips and I am happy how it came out. It has been a while when I last did either of the styles.

Tere kallid lugejad. Lõpuks ometi on mu küüned piisavalt pikad, et saaksin teha prantsuse maniküüri. Seekord otsustasin omavahel siduda poolkuu ja prantsuse tipid.

The half-moon line came out a bit wonky for some reason, I think it’s due to top coat because before adding it it was perfectly fine. Nevertheless I am still happy with the result. I have also added 2 types of holo glitter toppers to this mani. French tips have Fairy Dust on them and half-moons have Star Dust on them. The difference between the two is that Star Dust has also really dim pinkish shimmer base.

Poolkuu joon tuli keskmisel sõrmel natuke laineline, mis ilmselt oli pealislakist põhjustatud, kuna ennem selle peale kandmist oli joon ilus. Lisasin disainile ka kahte erinevat glitter pealislakki. Poolkuudel on Star Dust ja prantsuse tippidel Fairy Dust. Nende vahe seisneb selles, et Star Dust’i põhi on roosaka kumaga.

Monday Swatches: Misslyn – Harmony

Hello lovelies, for this Monday I have another coral from Misslyn to show you. I did one almost a month ago. Today’s one is a bit colder pastel coral and also a grelly. The two shades are numbered in a row (you can see them right next to each other HERE).

Tere kallid lugejad! Taaskord esmaspäeva puhul jagan teiega ühte järjekordset korall toonis lakki. Nagu Misslyn’i Sunrise’gi on ka see lakk grelly, mis tähendab, et ta on segu kreemjast ja pooleldi läbipaistvast marmelaadi laadsest tulemusest. Nende kahe võrdlemiseks võib SIIA klikata (pildid on kõrvuti).

Misslyn-Harmony

As mentioned above Misslyn Harmony has a grelly finish. I am wearing 3 thin coats and a top coat on the photos. Harmony isn’t as streaky as Sunrise was and also levels slightly better.

Nagu üleval pool mainitud on Harmony grelly lakk. Fotodel kannan kolme õhukest kihti ja pealislakki. Sunrise’iga võrreldes jaotub lakk paremini ning pole nii ebaühtlane.

Misslyn-Harmony-1

I do find this colder shade of coral more flattering to my skin tone than the warm corals. What do you guys think? It is a nice base colour for nail art, gradients well but is not good for stamping. There’s also a close up photo in a slightly different light. My camera tends to freak out slightly when doing close ups from these kind of colours.

Arvan, et jahedamates toonides korall lakid sobivad mu nahatooniga paremini. Mis teie arvate? Igastahes antud lakk on hea maalingute põhjaks ja samuti sobib gradient look’ideks, aga templeid sellega eriti hästi teha ei saa. Tegin ka ühe lähedalt võtte.

Misslyn-Harmony-cu

So as you can see it shifts slightly in different lighting or in shade. Although it is a bit streaky, I love this polish. It is bright but also soft at the same time. Besides another art post coming up this week, I thought of making a comparison post of what kind of nail strengtheners and base coats I have used and am using now. If that’s something you’d like to read, I’ll do one on top coats and cuticle oils in the upcoming weeks as well. Let me know in the comments.

Nagu näha, käitub lakk erinevas valguses veidi erinevalt. Ja kuigi Harmony on veidi ebaühtlane, on see mu üks lemmik lakke, kuna ta on ergas aga ka pehme samal ajal. See nädal on plaanis veel üks maalingu postitus ja siis küüne tugevdajate ja aluslakkide võrdlus. Kui te sellest huvitatud olete, kirjutaksin ka pealislakkidest ja küüneõlidest. Andke kommentaarides julgelt teada, mida sellest ideest arvate.

Green Skittlette with Roses

Hello lovelies, I hope everyone has had a great start to the weekend. Today I am sharing a green skittlette with some yellow roses with you. But before we get to the nails, I have started getting fit recently (a week and half ago) and the results are already showing, which is pretty amazing. Things I have changed in my routine: I go rollerskating 3 times a week now and do circuit training 2 times a week, I also replaced my breakfast with smoothies and drink a lot more water. I have to say, I am feeling great. I feel like I have more energy and my diet is more varied.

Tere kallid lugejad, loodetavasti on teieginädalavahetus meeldivalt alanud. Tänaseks on üks rohelistes toonides skittlette kollaste roosidega. Aga ennem küünteni jõudmist tahaksin midagi teiega veel jagada. Muutsin oma elustiili hiljuti (poolteist nädalat tagasi), et taas vormi saada ja tulemused on juba silmnähtavad. Mida ma siis muutsin? Hakkasin rulluisutamas käima ning ka erinevaid harjutusi nii kõhule, jalgadele, pepule ja kätele tegema, samuti asendasin hommikusöögi smuutidega ja joon rohkem vett kui varem. Tunnen, et mul rohkem energiat ja enesetunne on ka kõvasti parem.

Now to the nails. It is a mix of matte and shiny/glittery finish. I love how it turned out. And the lovely dark green, thank you Cat for introducing me to Sinful Colors🙂. I also free-handed the roses.

Nüüd küünte juurde. Otsustasin teha väikse mix up’i ja kasutasin nii matti pealislakki kui ka tavalist ja olin äärmiselt rahul lõpptulemusega. Mis puutub tumerohelisse, pean Cat’i tänama, et ta tutvustas mulle Sinful Colors’i lakke. Roosid on vaba käega maalitud.

Monday Swatches: Butter London – All Hail The Queen

Hello lovelies, I hope everyone had a great weekend. It has cooled down here a bit and the rain has hit us again. So I decided to share some holo goodness. For today’s swatch I have Butter London All Hail The Queen, which is from Gears & Gadgets Set 2014.

Tere kallid lugejad, loodetavasti oli kõigil meeldiv nädalavahetus. Kuna ilm on taaskord jahedamaks ja vihmasemaks läinud, otsustasin jagada ühte holograafilist lakki, milleks on Butter London’i All Hail The Queen Gears & Gadgets Set 2014 kollektsioonist.

Butter-London-All-Hail-The-Queen

All Hail The Queen is a lovely taupe polish with holographic specs in it. It does lean more towards linear than scattered. On the photos I am wearing 2 coats and top coat. It was very easy to work with – applied well and no streakiness.

All Hail The Queen on ilus pruunikas holograafiline lakk. Fotodel kannan kahte kihti ja pealislakki. Antud tootega on väga kerge töötada – kandub peale ühtlaselt.

I also have a close up photo of it. As again unfortunately when I did the swatch, there was no sun and it was late in the evening (photos are from April). Let me know what do you think of this lovely polish in the comments.

Antud fotod on aprillikuust, mil polnud veel head päikest – tehtud õhtul hilja. Andke teada, kas teile meeldib selline toon j kus te seda kannaksite all kommentaarides.

Negative Space Skittlette

Hello lovelies, today I have another inspired design to show you. It is a lovely skittlette inspired by JustAGirlAndHerNails. I have no idea how she did her thumbnail, well I decided to go the same as ring finger. I did have few issues with it though, got bubbling, a lot of it. I am not sure if it was the heat and humidity or there’s something going on with the top coat I used. I’ll let you to judge.

Tere kallid lugejad. Taaskord on jagada üks skittlette (see tähendab, et 2 küünt on sama mustriga, ent kogu setis on kasutatud vähemalt 3e eri mustrit) stiilis disain. See on inspireeritud JustAGirlAndHerNails maalingust. Tema fotodel polnud näha kuidas pöidlaküüs tehtud on, seega otsustasin selle samamoodi teha nagu oma sõrmuse sõrmel.
