Nail art: Ultra Brutal Technical Death Metal

My dear friend Emma invited me to come watch her boyfriend’s band Smothered play tonight, and even though I’m not much of a metal fan, I am a fan of her and her boyfriend so I’m showing my support regardless my musical preference. So, naturally I need to wear nails that go with the occasion, …

Valborgsmässoafton or Bonfire Night nails

Tonight is Bonfire Night (Valborgsmässoafton) here in Sweden and it’s a pretty big deal here. We celebrate the end of winter and the arrival of spring (and if you live or have lived this far north you’ll understand why we celebrate this). People gather all the dead leaves and twigs and other combustible things that …

Layering: W7 – 28 Black, China Glaze – Ruby Pumps & Max Factor – 45 Fantasy Fire

I’m not going to write much about this manicure, even though it might deserve it. I’m just going to let the photos speak, because even I think they’re breathtaking, and I took them! This is a simple layering, but probably the most stunning creation I’ve even worn on my nails. And since I got a …

Swatches of W7 – Metallic Planets Collection

Dessa fick jag nys om i kommentarsfältet på någon av de större nagelbloggarna (tror att det var The Swatchaholic), och letade upp dem med det samma. Åh, är de inte hur fina som helst? Inget fotografi kommer någonsin att fånga alla färger som finns i dessa lack, så man måste faktiskt se dem IRL för …

Swatches of W7 – 42 Purple Pearl, 32 Navy, 26 Black Cherry & 57 Polar Bear

Dessa fyra lack beställde jag från smink.nu för rätt så länge sedan nu. Jag beställde fem lack, men ett var slutsålt utan att de hade uppdaterat hemsidan. Trist. Penslarna i dessa är inte OPI’s penslar, vilket jag blev lite ledsen över, och det känns som om dessa flaskor är riktigt gamla dessutom. Jag önskar att …
