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 icgroup.dk, for the detailed work I used the Master Detailer brush – the lace is def not perfect, but from  a far it looks so cool!

Medina – Kranz & Ziegler

Oh Lord! Totally forgot these beauties! Lovely commercial for Danish Jewelry Company “Kranz & Ziegler”

We did Brisa Gel enhancements with  custom blended colors on her – I love them!


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.

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 🙂

First friday morning, 3 of us had a Spraytan, California Tan, did at Klinik Nørgaard – they did an amazing job – then home to my crib getting the bouquets ready for saturday.

Perfect Nails for “I do”

The question I get the most these days is” So, how’s your wedding nails gonna look like?”

I have an idea, ever since I did it on Medinas nails back in 2009, I wanted it for my wedding. But in some ways, I do feel a little to gipsy-bride with blinged out nails, and I am a nude natural kinda girl.. But it’s my wedding?.. Help!

What do you think?


All Natural Nude like these



Or in a soft pink shade?



Blinged out for the fun of it!?
