Red & Gold Christmas Nails

I hope everyone had a peaceful christmas! ^^
Here's how my nails looked like during the christmas holidays:

I wanted to use the mini polishes by OPI because I was so inspired by their christmasy colours! :D So first I polished my nails with two layers of Goldeneye. Then I sponged The Spy Who Loved Me on the tips, and started decorating! ^^ I used Golden Rose nail art polish for the snow flakes, and I'm so happy with the way they turned out, since it's been so long since I last did snow flakes... Then I felt they needed a little something more so I added the rhinestone on the ring finger. :)

Whee, they are so sparkly! :D I loove Goldeneye, I actually think it's my favorite polish at the moment!
See you guys soon, enjoy the holidays! ^^

The World Is Not Enough

Merry Christmas everyone!
Christmas nails are coming up soon, first I want to introduce the first manicure I did with my  new mini polishes. :)

I used The World Is Not Enough, which was a bit opaque, but with 3 layers I got enough coverage. Although I love all the four polishes, this was my least favorite out of them so I decided to save the best for last and start with this one. Besides Goldeneye and the Spy Who Loved Me just scream 'christmas manicure!', so that's what I'm planning to do with them. ;)

My camera doesn't do justice to this polish... I can't really decide what colour it is, which is why I had a hard time figuring out how to decorate it, but eventually I decided it's silver and went with white nail art and rhinestones. I also used tiny white roses and micro pearls. :)
Next up, christmas manicure! ^^

New stuff!

Hello everyone!
I went to see the new Twilight movie a while back, and while I was in the mall I decided to do some shopping. :) It had been so long since I bought new nail polishes, that I decided to spoil myself a little and check out the OPI polishes...

The cutest mini polishes ever! xD I just couldn't decide which one to buy, so eventually my boyfriend got tired of waiting and bought me these... :D Haha I'm so thankful for these! xD

The Bondettes! What a cute name! :D

GoldenEye, The Spy Who Loved Me, The World Is Not Enough and Live and Let Die

GoldenEye is my favorite so far, it's the perfect gold polish... x) Of course I had to try these straight away, so that's coming up next time - the first Bondette manicure! ;)

Shimmery Swirls

Hey everyone! ^^
I'm still not able to upload photos from my phone, but I figured I can send them to my email and then upload them to photobucket and then upload them here.... Complicated, I know, but for now it's the best I can do. :P

I did these nails in Finland, where I had the chance to use some of my old polishes I had left there! :') First I sponged the purple Flormal polish on the tips and then added one layer of Happy Anniversary! by OPI on top. Black swirls I did with a nail art polish.

I edited this one on my phone... Photoshop is so addicting! xD

Diamonds & Gold

Hello everyone!
I recovered (hopefully!) from my previous blogger crisis... Let me know if you can see the pictures, I have now started to use Photobucket, hopefully successfully! :) Thank you so much for the advise, shiny! Huh, maybe I've learnt my lesson - from now on I'll think before I upload. =_= Still, I love posts with lots of pictures, why does blogger have to be so greedy? >:(

So, as I promised - my latest nails! I hadn't done anything special on my nails for so long, that I almost went over the top.... :'D But I am so happy with the result! Also I kinda felt I had to prove myself I can still create beautiful nail art and details!

I used Be a Dahlia Won't You? by OPI and Golden Rose nail art polish in gold for the swirls. I just love that polish, it would've been gorgeus even without the decorations but oh well. The diamonds and micro pearls are from a local craft store. :)
Also, lately I havent been happy with the quality of the pictures on my old Olympus digital camera, so I've tried to take my nail photos with my Canon supercamera... xD Sadly I only have this huge zoom lense, which is perfect for taking pictures from long distance, not so great for trying to take close ups from your own nails if you know what I mean... :'D Haha, I need my own nail photographer if I wanna keep up with that camera. :P What do you guys think of the quality? worth it?

I know these are a bit out of focus, I have to use auto focus because I can't focus manually with one hand. ::D Well, I keep practising, see you soon! ^^

What the ****, Blogger?? -.-

Blogger doesn't let me upload photos anymore!
Seriously now, is this some sort of revenge for taking a break from blogging? D: I was writing a new post today and when I tried to upload the photos, this text popped up:

"Hups! Tallennustila loppui. 100 prosenttia 1 gigatavun suuruisesta valokuvien tallennuskiintiöstä on tällä hetkellä käytössä. Hanki lisää tilaa"*

*"Oops!  You ran out of storage space. 100 % of 1 GB photo storage quota is currently in use. Get more space"

And when I clicked the link, I found out that that to get more storage space, I would have to buy it. For 25 Gt 2,49 $ / month and for 100 Gt 4,99 $ / month. Are you serious? When I created my blog, it said (and still says):

"Luo Blogi. Se on ilmaista."*

*"Create a blog. It is free."

Yeah sure! This is so annoying... Has any of you guys faced the same problem? What did you do? Please, if anyone knows another way to upload pictures for free, all advise is so welcome!! :(

Onko kukaan kohdannut samaa ongelmaa? Onko muita vaihtoehtoja?? Auttakaa, kaikki neuvot on tervetulleita!

Sorry for the disappearance

Hey everyone!
It's been so long since I last posted, and my last post wasn't even about nails... I'm so ashamed xD Anyway I've been suffering from some technical difficulties, does anyone know how to get photos and videos from iphone to laptop? I've got over 1000 photos on my phone, but for some reason when I try to transfer them on my laptop it says "no photos or videos found"! Aaarrg I miss my old and faithful Nokia... :'( Anyway that's not my excuse, I do have some nail photos on my camera too.... ^^'
Oh well, let me introduce you an old glitter manicure I realized I forgot to post here. I did this probably almost a year ago, so next up are some more recent manicures. :) This one is just a simple glitter gradient mani, but I really liked it so I thought it deserves to be posted! :D

Lately I've been keeping my nails shorter, I miss the old lenght now! :'D
Okay, at least now I have loads of new nail designs to show so I won't be running out of ideas any time soon... Stay tuned guys, see you soon! ^^

My Artwork

I have finally finished all my exams! :D I feel so free... xD
Yesterday we had an art exhibition, and all my artwork I have done at school last year & this year was put up. I worked so hard, and it was amazing to actually see all my work up on that wall at the same time... :'D Anyway I wanted to share couple pictures with you guys:

All my work! :D
Unit 2 final piece - my topic was meeting of two cultures. :)
Unit 1 mock exam piece - pop art
Unit 1 final piece - my topic was portraits.
Acrylic on canvas. One of my favorites, and also I think this one required the most work... :'D
With the artist ;D
What do you guys think? :D Is anyone interested in taking a look at my sketchbooks?
ps. I know this post isn't exactly about nail art, but art is art... :'D

Teenage Dream Gradient

One layer of H&M - Pink Mist as base, direct sunlight.
OPI - Teenage Dream layered on tips to create gradient effect.
And finally one flower-rhinestone on the ring finger!
This is actually quite an old manicure, but I actually like it so much I was doing quite a lot of these while ago... :'D
I just noticed Blogger's new layout, blah I dislike it so much... It always take ages from me to adapt to changes. :P But hopefully this will be the end of annoying blogger-fails, I just have to learn how to use this... What do you guys think?

Gradient Crackle

I realized I hadn't used my crackle-polishes in ages so I decided to do something with them... :P And I love the result! xD Finally something different from the ordinary designs I've been doing lately... :'D

First I used sponged my new Claire's mini pastel polishes to create the colorful gradient base, then added OPI crackle-polish on top and finished the design with shiny top coat! ^^

Sorry for the bad lighting in the last two pics, I took them last night when it was already dark... :P

Just a quick announcement...
I'm sure some you remember my sister's blog, which she had to delete. She has now finally started a new blog, and still doing amazing nail art! I thought I would help her by advertising her blog here a bit, because some of you guys may have been following her old blog. :) So check it out, everyone!

Thank you for your attention ^^

Direct sunlight
I bought some new OPI polishes lately, and of course I had to try them out! :D This is the design I made. I used "Be a Dahlia Won't you?" first, the polish is very covering but I used two layers to make it last longer. Such a beautiful pink with tiny golden flakes that unfortunately don't show in my photos... :'D

Next I did the petals with Kiss white nail art polish. Then I added some "I Lily Love You" by OPI on the tips, and done! I wasn't sure where this design was going when I started polishing, but I really like the result! ^^

I just love those colorful flakes! x)

Christmas & New Year's nails

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012  to my beautiful readers! <3 These are the nails I made for new years celebrations. :)

I went to manicure at 25th and the polish was still flawless so I just decorated the nails. :)
I wanted them to look like fireworks... So I started off with silver and gold nail art polishes...
...and finished the nails with LOTS of glitter! :D
Writing with my left hand felt too challenging so I just put the 2012 on thumb. :P
It's amazing how fast last year went by, and how much happened to me! Luckily mostly good things. ;) I moved abroad and I have met so many amazing people I never even dreamed about. Last year was definitely unforgettable, and I wouldn't change a thing! I just hope that this year will be as good for everyone. x)

Polishes I used: H&M "Gold" and CND "VIP Status" to add some sparkle. :)
These were my christmas nails! I wanted something quite simple but christmasy, so I used colors that remind me of christmas, gold and red. :) I really liked the result, and I had these on for quite long, since even the rhinestone stayed on. :)
I hope you all had wonderful christmas and that everyone's year has started off nicely! ^^
