Favorite Color: CND Shellac Layering

New in, new nails! I did my own nails last night, with CND Shellac color “Bare Chemise” layered with – hold your breath!….  “Romantique” It turned out beautiful – a soooooft nude rose beige color. None of the new “Intimates collection” are perfect for my skintone so I have to try to mix them up a little bit.

Here I did a handpainted lace as well. I used Nail Art Paint bought at, for the detailed work I used the Master Detailer brush – the lace is def not perfect, but from  a far it looks so cool!

Ombre again…

Can you ever get tired of  faded manicures and leopard? I’m not done with it, that’s for sure
Here I used City Scape, and faded a Custom Pink over and layered the pink with Strawberry Smoothie CND Shellac.

Statement Nails

That little extra funk, when wearing a 2+ toned manicure. It’s states Classic elegance – and the twist adds the funk!

Forever French

Allright, it’s hands down the hardest thing to do to perfection! And it’s actually really hard to make them look natural. I’ve found some pictures of beautiful french enhancements, made with L&P or Gels.

Tutorial: Feathered Nails

Have you tried wearing feathers to your nails?  Either you can handpaint the feather, as I did on the first picture, it is actually really easy, and it looks quite cool. Just ad different shades and maybe some glitter to it, and it’ll look awesome. I used Black Nail Paint, CND Shellac in Color Sugared Spice and Studio White to create a slight effect.

Next I tried making them with real feathers, I used Guinea Silver Pheasant feathers ind black and white, (Perlehøns in danish) bought on Etsy or   I made a little tutorial, it is really easy and looks so contemporary, bohemian chique and natural! Do you like the look?

Bridesmaids FTW

I had the most amazing bridesmaids ever! For you international readers, bridesmaids are not that common in Denmark, but I went all the way at mine, so of course it included 5 of my best friends all dressed in similar dresses

They planned my AWESOME bachelorette party, got spoiled with a pair of Louboutins btw?!
And the night before the wedding we just had the most amazing time, slumber party all the way, 6 girls haveing a sleep over at our age, incredible! 🙂 Must do it again, girls!.

Some pictures from the day before the wedding and the morning 🙂
