Truckstar 2015


Hi Everyone,

Last weekend was the yearly Truckstar festival, we went there for a day. I do not really care much about trucks but my boyfriend likes it. And I do like the special paint trucks, cause they are great nail art inspiration hahaha.


 
Subtle gradient with Essence Brazil Jungle and China Glaze Kiwi Cool Ada. Stamped with BP-64 the full nail stars Konad​ M3 for the single stars and MyOnline Shop​ MJ XXVII for the Trucks.

I also did a matching pedi for Truckstar, too bad the weather was so bad so I could not wear my flipflops.

Sorry for not blogging much (lot's of stuff going on), I do post a lot of mani's on instagram so you can always follow me there too :)

Thanks for reading.

In loving memory of our rat Faith


Hi Everyone,

Last thursday our ratty Faith died. She would have turned 3 in about 4 weeks so she was pretty old. And she even had tumor surgery twice in her life. She was a very strong lady. Now she died very peacefully because of old age and joined her sweet sister Hope who passed away in January.


Ofcourse I had to do a mani to honor her. In the fb group WON we had a chance to submit images for a special WON plate made by Fab Ur Nails ofcourse I had to submit ratties and cheese. I drew the images myself from pictures I saw online. I once submitted these for the BM CYO too but they did not pick them so I was happy they made it on the FUN-WON. The plate also has some Arctic images on it that were my idea and some of them I drew too :) 

Gradient with China Glaze Son of a Peach and Neon & On & On. Stamped the full nail with FUN16 and MdU pastel pink. The word Faith is from FUN17 and the ratties and cheese are the images from the special FUN-WON plate. If you look close you see the one one my thumb has wings too stamped with Konad M90.  I try to color the images to match Faith her colors.

And some more pictures.

Here also one with Faith so you can see her colors.

And the last picture we took about a week before she passed away she was still very active then.

We were at the pet store this weekend to get some food and other supplies and we always look and cuddle the ratties there. But there was one who kept climbing out towards us, she was adorable and she misses part of her ear. We did not plan to get a new ratty, I said 3 were enough but I fell in love. Also because of her ear I was afraid she might become snake food...cause maybe other people would not want her. When we decided she had to come home with us and the employee saw the ear he said half price is fine....that is how little a small animal life is worth. But for us she is perfect.


On instagram there is this tag #mynailsandmyrat so I had to take a picture of our new ritten Scar and my memorial nails for Faith :)


Thanks for reading.

Have a nice weekend!

Hi Everyone,

Here something I've made for the Monthly Palette Project in August 2013....told you I still have so many mani's to show haha ;) The rules were to use at least 2 of the colors on the palette and tape ofcourse my goal was to use them all ;)

Sponged the tips with P2 Denim Delight 050 indigo denim and removed the tape again so you can see the Glitter Gal stripes. Stamped with Konad SN white and Pueen 26. Added dots with Flormar 394.


And here all the seperate pictures.

 Also from my right hand.

Sailor Moon mani and pedi


Hi Everyone,

I did this a few months ago when we went to Germany on a short break. I have to confess I just thought this was a cute girl on the moon, until I posted them on fb and several people pointed out that is was Sailor Moon. I never heard of her so I had to google haha.


Gradient with Lime Crime Crema de Limon, Lime Crime Pastelchio and China Glaze Neon & On & On. Stamped with Born Pretty BP-03 and BP-06 and Konad Black.

Also done a matching pedi.

Here a picture taking in the wildlife park. You can see the racoon sitting in the tree cave.

And an underwater picture of my mani/pedi.

And a picture of just the gradient base.

I really love the plates from Born Pretty Store they have such pretty designs and the quality is amazing. If you order from them don't forget to use KONG10 for 10% off not discounted items.

Niagara Nights nail foil with stamping


Hi Everyone,

Here a mani I did about 2 weeks ago. I got some nail foil from Nailways and really wanted to try it. I never played with foil before. It wasn't perfect and I still had some bald spots but it wasn't that bad ;) I also stamped over it, to try and cover up the bald spots.


 I stamped some birds over the foil with Konad white and BM 508.

I really liked this foil pattern.


Thanks for reading.
