Estee Lauder Lilac Leather – and then some lace! :)

Ha, I think Greg is trying to tell me he’s gonna miss me! He came home with another  Estee Lauder polish yesterday! Perfect timing as I was ready to take off Narcissist. This time I used almost four coats because I wanted it to be really even across the nail. I love the color, but I didn’t want to do a straight up swatch so I decided to add french tips (Essie – blanc) and some lace nail stickers and oh yeah some jewels! I was really in the mood to decorate my nails last night! 🙂

Sheets of these lace stickers are on sale in most beauty stores here in Seoul, I love them! Tonight I’m heading out for dinner and a few drinks  so I’m glad I have girly nails for the occasion! 🙂

My cuticles and skin are really suffering in this weather! I’m moisturizing but it’s just not enough! Maybe the weather in Ireland will be kinder to me.

Santa Claus Nails :)

I love Christmas!! 🙂 My nails are making me smile today. My birthday is Christmas day so it’s always been a really special day for me.

I googled Christmas nail art and a version of this manicure caught my eye. I swapped silver glittery polish for silver nail tape. You can check out that manicure here.

Bridal Manicure

1A

Next year on August first I am getting married! (yay!) 🙂 So, I’ve been thinking about what kind of manicure I should have for my wedding day. I’m still not sure what I want so I’m just experimenting with lots of different looks and styles. I’m pretty sure I will eventually decide on something really simple and elegant. When I googled bridal manicures I really didn’t like what I saw. I definitely don’t want a Kardashian inspired look!

This look is really simple. I used a Konad stamping plate m56. I wanted a nice delicate french manicure look. I like the lace effect, it’s pretty.

So, there will be many more bridal manicures over the next few months as I play around with different looks.  I’d appreciate any advice from nail art bloggers! What manicure did you rock on your wedding day? 1B 1C

Fake Nails

Last week for Halloween I dressed up as a cat. I got to wear my costume twice, once for a party and once at work. For the party I painted my nails and used nail stickers for a french manicure effect, the accent nail was a white cat. Here’s the link to that manicure.

The second time I got to wear my costume it was for work. I am an elementary school teacher in Seoul. Last Friday I decided to use fake nails to go with my costume. I thought they would be less time-consuming than painting my nails. I haven’t worn fake nails since I was a teenager. I quickly remembered why! Initially I was glad that I didn’t need to use glue, the nails came with double-sided little inserts instead. However, I knew as soon as I put them on that they wouldn’t work, not for me. They were too long and really thin, it felt like I was wearing fragile plastic talons. Totally uncomfortable. 

Before I took them off (they lasted about 20 mins) I took a few pictures.

Got any fake nail experiences you’d like to share? Or know of any really great brands?

Breast Cancer Awareness Manicure

October is breast cancer awareness month. I didn’t want to let the month end without creating a manicure inspired by this theme. I’m no expert on this topic so I’m not going to pretend I am. Here’s a link if you’re interested in what it’s all about. http://www.nbcam.org/

Here’s what I used for this manicure.

I had so much fun giving each nail a different look! I really love this manicure! My favorite nail is the red middle finger, so bling! 🙂

Which one is your favorite?
