Cats playing in the garden :)

Hi everyone,

This was actually my first idea for the blogger mani-a giveaway/contest. I saw the list of 11 themes and one of them is CATS so I immediately thought of this mani. Then I heard I could do more then one theme so I did 2 other ones too :) Like I said before I love doing themed mani's and I had enough ideas for all the themes haha, but that would be too much. I really wanted to do this Kitties/Cats playing in the garden mani. I like making scenery/landscape nails, they do take some time to make but I love doing that :)

The weather is really nice really feels like Spring :) Outside you always see cats chasing frogs (thumb) or butterflies (ring finger) and just having fun in a garden. So I had to make that on my nails too. And I miss having cats. I had not used the plate with the cats yet so this was also a perfect opportunity to do that.

Base DA magical with a franken green holo and Nubar Absolute. Cats are from Born Pretty Store plate QA15. Frog, swan, dragonfly from HB34. Grass from Konad M66 and Moyou Mother Nature 01. Flowers from HB33, Moyou Suki 10, Moyou Mother Nature 01. Butterflies also from Moyou Mother Nature 01. Sun is from Nailways Snowwhite Weather Forecast. And the clouds are from Moyou Mother Nature (aka Landscape) 06. 

Colors used: Konad SN black, SN white, SN yellow, SN pastel blue, SN orange pearl, SN red, SN moss green, SN pastel pink, PSN apple green, PSN pop green, Flormar 47.

Also used a dotting tool  and a sponge (for the water).

I hope the weather will be nice here the next week too......can't wait for the Summmer.

Thanks for reading!

There is something brewing in the Science lab

Hi everyone,

One of the other themes in the Blogger mani-a giveaway is Science so I wanted to use some images from my FUN plates. I love doing themed mani's. Another theme on that list is Medicine this mani could also be that theme...that there is medicine brewing in the science lab ;) but with the neon yellow it does look a bit toxic.

Base China Glaze I'm With The Lifeguard, sponged with China Glaze Splish Splash and added a spectraflair mix holo topcoat on top. Stamped with FUN5, FUN6 and FUN7 using Konad SN black. Colored with China Glaze Sun Kissed and a little white.

And here a picture of just the gradient base.

Just a short post today,  I am not feeling well.

Have a nice weekend!

The Beatles in the newspaper

Hi everyone,

Today a mani I did yesterday :) I know I still have so many older ones to show too but I wanted to share this one. I've read about the Blogger Mani-a giveaway and there were so many fun themes listed that I wanted to do a few mani's with those themes. My first idea was to do a Cats mani (will show that later this week) Then I asked if you could do more then one mani :) cause I saw a few entries already from the same artist. And they said yes your could do more, so I am having with all those themes. Wanted to do all of the themes but no time for that ;) But I did do more then one ;) One of the themes is The Beatles.

When I thought of The Beatles this song popped up in me head:

"When I was younger so much younger than today 
I never needed anybody's help in any way 
(But) But now these days are gone (These days are gone), I'm not so self assured (I know I've found) 
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors  

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down 
And I do appreciate you being round 
Help me, get my feet back on the ground 
Won't you please, please help me, help me, help me, ooh"

I have been singing it all day :) So I hope you guys now too have it stuck in your head haha.

I decided to make an old newspaper mani with The Beatles.

Base Catrice C01 Pebble Beach, stamped with P2 Sun love 040 Summer rain mixed with a little black and parts of Bundle Monster BM 311. The Beatles from My Online Shop tester plate MJ XXIII.

And here a picture of just the base with the newspaper print. I double stamped some parts so not every nail looked the same as my ring finger (that is how the original image looks like). 

Thanks for reading.

Doekie...the seal

Hi Everyone,

Last weekend we went to Vlieland (a Dutch Wadden Island) for a day. I had some day trip tickets. As you may know I love Terschelling (other island) and we often go there, so with these tickets we decided to go the a other island. I have been there when I was a little girl, but could not remember anything from it. It was a beautiful Spring day and we enjoyed the nature and silence, had fun biking/walking on the island.

I really wanted to do the logo from the boat company on my nails. It is Doekie the seal...always loved him ever since I was a little girl.

Base Catrrice Luxury Lacquers LE C02 Mailiblue (sand polish) and on my index a white P2 Ship Ahoi! 01 Pure white. Stamped the French tip with Konad M56 and P2 Gigantic. The rest is stamped with Konad White and Moyou Sailor 07. And a self made water decal of the seal “Doekie” it is the logo from a boat company .

And some more pictures with the logo or the beach scenery on Vlieland.

And a collage from Doekie :)

And some nature pictures of Vlieland :)

Thanks for reading/watching.

Have a lovely day :)
