Last Saturday me, my boyfriend, my sister and her boyfriend went to the Efteling, that is our most beautiful Dutch theme/amusement park. On 9 Saturdays in the Summer is it open till midnight, so we always go there once a year. So fun to be able to go in the rollercoasters in the dark. And everything is decorated with lights. The Efteling is also really beautiful park to walk in, lots of pretty trees and flowers and water. It has many rollercoasters and other "fast" stuff but also things for children (or people like me who still like those things too haha) When we were little we always went to the Fairytale Forest...we hadn't been in there for years but this day we said well lets walk through it too :)
I took some pictures of the Fairytale Forest, Dream Flight (you sit in little wagons and visit a fairytale world), The Carnival (also in little wagons and you see little dolls all over the world and visit many coutries) and also some other stuff ;) See below after the nail pics.
My nails were inspired by Dream Flight and my t-shirt that I wore that day. I have so many polishes but no cream dark grey so had to improvise and made a metallic magnetic grey polish matte :)
Base Essence Metallic (magnetic) 03 Steel me. Stamped with Winstonia W205 & W208 (mushrooms, bigger dandelion seed and fairy), Sugar Bubbles SB025 (dandelion and smaller seeds), Konad M36 (butterflies) and Moyou Fairytale 01 (twinkle stars). Using white and pastel polishes from Konad (SN pastel yellow, pastel green, pastel violet, pastel pink and pastel blue). Dotted some dots at the mushrooms and added some rhinestones on my ring finger...just like the bling on my t-shirt. I've made it all matte with Essie Matte About You.
Here a close up from the mani.
And one with my t-shirt in the background.
A close up from my shirt.
I also did a matching pedi, but the weather wasn't good enough for flip flops :(
The big butterfly is from Moyou Kitty 01 and the twinkle stars from Konad M14, the rest from the same plates already mentioned.
Also took a picture before I've made it matte.
And here a lot of pictures of that day :)

Hubby and his family took me there for my birthday last year and I was completely amazed. We didn't have time to see it all (it's impossible in one day right?), but I love everything I saw. We didn't go the the Fairy part though. Now I have a reason to go back there.
I love your mani. Absolutely gorgeous, as usual! :-D
