Neon Yellow Nails

Hello lovelies, today I have something bright to show you. I wore it last month and I was pleasantly surprised how fun and bright it was. I have also picked up knitting (it’s been several years I last picked up yarn and knitting needles). I’ll show you, when it’s done. It will be fingerless mittens, I am a big fan of those during colder times of the year.

Tere kallid lugejad, täna tahan midagi eriti erksat teiega jagada. Olin üsna positiivselt üllatunud kui rõõmsameelne see disain oli. Peale selle hakkasin jälle kuduma, plaanin ka oma tööd jagada, kui see valmis saab. Tegemist siis randme soojendajatega, mille päris suur fänn ma talvekuudel olen.

This photo is true to it’s colours. Originally I wanted to add a 3D bow to my ring finger but I couldn’t get my nail glue to open and I didn’t have any Seche Vite either (it is only top coat I trust to attack larger 3D charms). Excuse with the massive bubbling, it’s the end of my China Glaze top coat. Something that’s good till first half the bottle, I won’t be buying it again.

Selle foto värvid on päris täpsed. Algselt tahtsin lisada ka ühe 3D lipsu oma sõrmuse sõrmele, kuid kahjuks ei saanud küüneliimi purki lahti ja sinna see jäi. Väiksed mullikesed on tingitud China Glaze’i pealislakist. Nimelt hakkas see pudel tühjaks saama.

nyc_williamsburg_white

This is NYC Williamsburg White. It’s the base for this art, 2 coats. As you can see, it is rather streaky. The fast dry colour polishes just don’t seem to work well on me. They start to drag and this is what Williamsburg White is. It does work as a base though, doesn’t stamp.

Valge, mida disaini põhjana kõikidel küüntel kasutasin on Williamsburg White NYC poolt. Pildil kannan 2te kihti ja nagu näha on see veidi triibuline. Ta ei kandu küüntele ühtlaselt, tegemist muidu kiiresti kuivava lakiga. Toimib hästi põhjana kuid stampinguks ei sobi.

Used products (kasutatud tooted):

  • white – NYC Williamsburg White
  • yellow – Wild & Mild Back To 80’s
  • black – Maybelline Colorshow Blackout
  • black lines – Barry M nail art pen in black
  • stamping plate BP-29
  • top coat – China Glaze Fast Forward

The last photo is in a warmer lighting. It does make it tone down a little. I hope you have enjoyed this post and stay tuned for the next one, which will be a simple skittles.

Viimane pilt veidi soojemas valguses, mis tõmbab erksust natuke allapoole. Loodan, et teile meeldis see postitus. Jääge lainele, järgmiseks on küllaltki lihtne skittles (kõik küüned erinevad) tüüpi disain.

With best, K.

Simple Red Nails

Hello lovelies, it’s Wednesday – half of the week over. I am still down with sickness (nasty cold, probably sinusitis), but feeling a lot better than few days ago. I will try to catch up with some of the stuff I have produced over the past few months. There’s not much though. Anyhow for today I have a very simple red design – a skittlette.

Tere kallid lugejad. On kolmapäev ja nädala selgroog murtud nagu öeldakse. Õnneks tunnen end paremini, kuigi olen endiselt haige. Igal juhul üritan järje peale selle blogi asjandusega taaskord saada. Õnneks pole viimase paari kuu jooksul väga palju materjali kogunenud. Seega tänase juurde, milleks on lihtne punane skittlette tüüpi disain.

I was supposed to tell you about my job as well. I’ve been doing it for couple of months now and it is on my field – aquatic/hydrobiology. So I am glad that I can get some actual experience. It does require some field work as well, which sometimes means that I’m away from home for a whole week (I get to come home for weekends). I don’t mind this, cause it makes it versatile and more interesting.

Tahtsin natuke ka oma tööst rääkida. Mul on see nüüd lõpuks olemas, õigupoolest paar viimast kuud juba olen töötanud oma erialal. Mul on tegelikult päris hea meel saada kogemust ja käia ka välitöödel, see muudab kogu bioloogia ( töö) värgi mitmekesisemaks, mis sobib minu iseloomuga väga hästi kokku.

china_glaze_heart_of_africa

Back to the nails. As a base colour I used China Glaze Heart of Africa. This is just 1 coat, a dark deep red with shimmery finish. Don’t mind the fingerprint on my middle finger, it applies well.

Tagasi küünte juurde. Põhivärvina kasutasin China Glaze’i lakki nimega Heart of Africa. Fotol kannan vaid ühte kihti. See on kergesti peale kantav tumepunane veidi sädeleva lõpptulemusega.

Used products (kasutatud tooted):

  • red base – China Glaze Heart of Africa
  • silver – Maybelline Colorshow Light Up (it’s a texture polish from their Crystallize line)
  • top coat – Butter London Hardwear quick dry top coat
  • matte top coat – OPI Matte Top Coat

I hope you’ve enjoyed this simple classy looking design. I had it on my nails at the end of September probably by looking at the length and shape of my nails.

Loodetavasti meeldis teile see lihtne kuid klassikaline punane disain. Enda küüntel hoidsin seda ilmselt septembri lõpu poole, vaadates oma küünte kuju ja pikkust. Väga täpselt ei mäleta kahjuks.

Feathers and Butter London Royal Navy

Hello lovelies, first up this design is from August. Back then I had some issues with my nails and cuticles again.. and I almost completely stopped painting my nails in September. It wasn’t because of that though. Anyways my nails were super dry and brittle and to my surprise it was caused by too long use of OPI Nail Envy. It took about a month after I stopped using it for my nails to get back into shape and outgrow the peeling bits.

Tere kallid lugejad, selles postituses siis disain augustikuu lõpupoolt. Tänu liigsele OPI Nail Envy küünetugevndaja kasutamisele muutusid mu küüned hoopiski kuivemaks ja veelgi rohkem kooruvamaks, samuti olid küünenahad väga kuivad. Läks umbes kuu aega kuni küüned saavutasid enam vähem endise tugevuse ja hakkasid taas kasvama.

This mani is a bit outgrown and you can see some tip wear but I really liked how it turned out. Silly me didn’t take photos right after I did it, well as I remember correct there wasn’t any sun to capture the holo, hence about 5 day later worn out photo..

Natukene küll väljakasvanud, aga tegemist 5 päeva vanuse maniküüriga. Õigel päeval polnud ilmselt päikest ja seega lükkasin pildistamist ka edasi.

Used products (kasutatud tooted):

  • dark blue base – Butter London Royal Navy
  • ring finger topper – Misslyn Star Dust
  • more scattered holo glitter – Seventeen Nail Xtras glitter top coat
  • some yellow feather water decals from Born Pretty Store

A bit about the base colour itself. This is just 1 coat and I’d say it has a crelly finish (something in between creme and jelly). I probably could have used 2 thin coats, since you can see dim streaks, for full coverage. It is a great navy though, it doesn’t stain either but is very well pigmented.

Natukene baasvärvist ka. Tegemist siis Butter London Royal Navy’ga. Fotol on vaid üks kiht, ent 2 oleks täiuslikuks ja ühtlaseks katteks ilmselt parem (eriti pikkade küünte korral). Hea on see, et kuigi lakk ise on väga pigmenteeritud ei jäta ta plekke küüntele.

I have some other news as well, I’ll leave those to the next time though. It will be about new job I got, so there’s a bit more to tell.

Muid uudiseid on ka, aga need jäävad järgmiseks korraks. Sain nimelt uue töö ning see on natuke pikem jutt 🙂

Some old Stuff

Hello lovelies, it has been ages. There’s a lot to tell, but first I’ll have this over with. Some really old arts stuff back from last year :O I have 3 designs from last year, from which 2 were supposed to be for stamping plate reviews.. and the last one is from New Years Eve of 2015/16.

Tere kallid lugejad, ma pole terve igaviku midagi siia kirjutanud. No päris palju on juhtunud ka, aga ennem kui ma selleni jõuan, mõned vanad asjad eelmisest aastast. 3 vana disaini, millest 2 olid mõeldud stamping plate’ide arvustuseks ja kolmas on aastavahetuse disain.

First up is a grey skittlette with some gradient and leaves. The stamps are from BP-30 stamping plate. Good plate, designs pick up well.

Esimeseks üks hallides toonides skittlette.

Second one is another skittlette and a must have for every polish addict. The stamps are from a BP-29.

Teine jällegi skittlette, mille stamp’id peaksid iga lakisõltlase varustuses olemas olema.

nail-polish-skittlette-2

The last one is a French manicure with some rhinestones as an accent. It is simple but classy and of course some fairy dust as well for the glitz and glam.

Viimane on sinine prantsuse maniküür, kus aktsendiks on lisatud kivikesed ja natuke haldjatolmu, lisamaks sära veelgi.

blue_french_nails

I’ll write another post tonight slightly later on with a design I had on towards the end of August this year and tell you briefly about life and stuff.

Hiljem täna õhtul on üks postitus veel plaanitud, seal räägin lähemalt mõningatest juhtumistest ja postitan mõned fotod ka ühest augustikuusest disainist.

With best, K.

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.

violet-half-moon-french-nails

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.

Products used (kasutatud tooted):

  • violet (violetne) – Misslyn Electric Violet
  • white (valge) – OPI Alpine Snow
  • China Glaze Fairy Dust
  • Misslyn Star Dust
  • stamping plate BP-28

I hope you’ll like this design. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Loodetavasti meeldib teile see disain sama palju kui mulle.
