Nail Team Challenge - 50 shades of green

Today we have our challenge day with a very interesting theme proposed by Andra Katerina. 50 shades of green...well, this time I wasn't very inspired and because of lack of time I choose to make a very simple nail design with different shades of green. 

I used for the base Avon - Turquoise pop which is a light green shade, very near to mint. I don't know why but it reminds me of macaroons.The second layer of polish is Golden Rose nr. 217, which it is applied as a half moon on the base. and the last layer of green polish is Bell - Air Flow- Lotus Effect. The idea was to create a gradient in layers. In natural light conditions the transition between the colors are more obvious than in the pictures, which were taken at a desk light. I added the dots to make this mani a little bit playful.

I have to mention this color is one of my favorite ones, so I am heading to the other girls blog to see all the beautiful manicures in green!

Carnival time

Hello lovely ladies

Last weekend I was at a party in a restaurant together with my husband and friends. Each year in this period of time we say goodby to the winter and celebrate it with a carnival party! You can find my last years costume here

This year my husband came up with the idea and asked me to were an Indian outfit. For me it was easy because I had a beautiful hand made blouse, originally from India and I just had to DIY some jewelry's to it. But first, my manicure. As you can see the outfit is red, so I made an easy design with red and gold polish combination.

For the base I used Front Cover - Red Shoes and I topped it with Sephora - Purple Jewelry. The gold lines are painted with Tip Top Nails - Reggae to Riches and on the negative space I added some gold studs.

I love the flakes effect in the sun!

Here are some pictures from the outfits and party. My head piece is made from an old earring that I put on a gold chain and the nose ring is actually two earrings attached to another. All the other jewelry's are from my mother, she is a big collector!
Together with my dear friend Aliz. I painted her face!
With my amazing and lovely husband. He wore a commando outfit for a while.
My friend won the second price for the best outfit from all!
Here is a close up from my make-up. It was extremely hard to put the fake lashes on and were them. It was the first time for me!
With the group we set on the same table. They were super cool people. Charlie Chapline won the first prize and Dracula the third!

I hope you liked my post. Sorry about the quality of some pictures, they were taken with the phone!

Have a fantastic day and thank you for stopping by!

Nail Team Challenge - Inspired by someone close to you

Hello dear ladies. 

Today is the 7 day from our challenge and I think this is the most interesting theme from all, thought by Andra, Sophies's Nail Art Dreamland. For me it was crystal clear that my inspiration will be my daughter. She is my everything, my whole life builds up around her, so I dedicate this mani to her!

She is a big fan of the Frozen movie and for several times she asked me to paint Elsa or Ana on my nails. So, this was a great opportunity to make her wish come true. 

I usually make simple nail designs and this one needs a lot of skills, so, of course I am not very satisfied with the results. My time was extremely limited too and I made the portrait of Elsa quickly, I think in 30 minutes, and such a work with a lot of details needs a little bit more time in my opinion. My daughter was happy that I choose to make this mani, but she didn't liked the portrait very much either, because the resemblance with the original is not very obvious! One thing is sure, I have to practice a lot! On a big canvas I don't have problems to draw, but on the nails it is much harder!

I live you with the manicure and I am very curious what the other girls made. You can find the link's to their blogs at the end of this post.
