Stars on silver, my first mani for 2012

Hello everyone ^_^/

This is something I should have posted earlier, as it is the first mani of the year.
One of my resolutions for 2012 is to use up as many of my beauty products as I can. That includes of course nail polishes and nail art supplies. I have a tendency to collect nail art stickers and to never use them because they are so cute. This has to change, so for this year I vowed to use as many as I can.

Putting that into effect here are the nails I did for the New Year. My theme was metal and stars.

Here is what I used.

My base colours were Stargazer silver chrome (which happens to be my first metallic nail polish, I have this bottle for over 10 years) and Models Own Thunder & Lightning. Then I added purple and black star decals and Models Own Purple Haze!

When I first took out all the bottles, I wasn't sure of the end result but my nails ended up looking fabulous and sparkly, so I can say the experiment was a success.

Now let's see how many nail polishes and nail decals will I be able to use up during the year XD

My festive December

Hello everyone ^_^/
here is another photoblog, this time for the month of December.
The end of the year turned out to be really busy for me.

First of all I took part in an art exhibition, which was a great experience. I will make a seperate detailed post about it at some point but here are some snaps from the event.

I enjoyed my country's beautiful landscapes and traditional architecture and finally had a white Christmas!

It was so much fun walking around and going shopping in the midst of all the light and decorations.

But the best part was definitely celebrating Christmas with my family ^_^

Even though I was quite busy, December was a great month all in all.
Thank you for taking a look at this post, I hope you enjoyed it ^_^

Gothic bling, a perfect combination!

Hello everyone ^_^/

the holidays are now over (unless you celebrate the Chinese New Year, in which case I envy you!) but I will show you a project I did before Christmas. I wanted to make a new deco case for my iPhone, but I wanted it to reflect my personal taste 100% So it had to be dark. And purple. And super sparkly too somehow!

After careful planning  I came up with a Steampunk Deco Gothic iPhone case! Yes ^_^
And here it is!

First I coated my case and added the main pieces. A Fleur de Lis, a skeleton cameo, wings and a key.

Then I carefully placed the Swarovski crystals, using grey and purple as my main colours.

Of course as you can see in the first photo, I added some cute phonestraps as well. If something isn't hanging from my phone, I find it to be empty somehow :o What do you think of the result? I think it fits me perfectly ^_^

And I will close this post with a couple of projects I did this week.

A deco flower purse hook/key chain for my mother

and a lipstick and pill case set for a friend.

If you would like to check more of my deco creations, you can always browse through my etsy shop ^_^

Let's welcome the year of the Dragon

Hello everyone ^_^/

Happy New Year! It is 2012, the year of the Dragon, according to the Chinese zodiac. The Dragon is a symbol of strength and good luck so I am expecting this year to bring great things for each and everyone of us and for humanity as a whole.

For the first post of the year and of this month I will continue with the monthly nail inspiration posts.
For January, inspiration comes from the January edition of Nail Up!, which is my favourite nail magazine.

Here are some nail art ideas based on the colours that are in for the season.

The snowflake design on the bottom right of the second picture was actually the inspiration for my Christmas manicure ^_^

So what do you think of this month's nail inspiration? Do you like these designs? Do you agree with the colours? Personally I fail to see mustard as a trendy colour, I would much more prefer a forest green one instead.
