Hey Sweethearts!

Some time ago I started doing swaps on So my first swaps have arrived and I and I wanted to show you what I got.

My first ever swap I did with the lovely Minta aka mintac. She was so genorous to send me so many extra goodies and some candy too. I love american candy! ;)
I think I actually asked for the Lipsticks and some of the polishes. Everything else were the extras she put in. She also has a blog which is worth reading.

A couple days later I recieved another package. This one was from the lovely Emily aka squarednails. I sent her some local ploishes and she got me some Sinfuls:

colors are: Bali Mist, Vacation Time, Hazard, Unicorn, Rise & Shine and Mint Apple

The next is a mini-swap with the sweet Stace aka staceisace. I send her my Essie Coat Azure and got Haute as Hello back. She also included a Marks & Spencer Polish in Emerald.

The latest swap I recieved a week ago was with the oh so lovely Emily K. aka wrackmybrain. She went way over board with all the extra goodies she send me!!! And I love every single one of them!!! :)

My first two Frankens...

Hey Sweethearts!

I wanted to share my very first two Frankens with you today!
I thought they came out pretty well.

Here's what they look like:

They are called Buttered Popcorn (left) and Paparazzi (right)

And here they are swatched:

Buttered Popcorn comes out a little litghter on the picture then it is. The consistency is a little thick, so it kinda hard to apply, but it works anyways. These are 3 coats with topcoat.
Paparazzi is a little sheer, these are also 3 coats with topcoat.

Hope you liked my little Nail Polish Experiment.
Have you ever mixed some Frankens on your own?

Stay beautiful...

Spring & Summer Nail Trends 2011

Hey Sweethearts!

Long time, no blog...

I just moved and don't have a proper internet connection yet, so I'm not really into blogging right now. I tried to upload pictures, but it took me forever, so no pics included here.
But to show you that I am still alive I wanted to let you know about my personal spring & summer nail polish trends for 2011!!!
So let's get started:

light, almost white colors: I don't like to wear straight white on my nails, cause I always have the feeling I put TipEx on. But I am really digging those lighter colors, that have a hint of purple, pink or grey in them. Right now I am wearing MAC Frayed to Order which is a matte white with a slightly fushia shimmer. Such a unique color!
Others in that color-family I like are Orly Pure Porcelain and Essence Wanna Kiss?.

greens: Mostly I am wearing "dirty" greens which have a hint of grey or brown in them, but I for spring and summer I like all kind of shades. My favorites here are OPI Jade is the new Black, which is a dark grass green, ANNY Wicked, a greyed out mint and Essence A Hint of Mint from the Blossoms etc. Collection, which is a light pastel green with green shimmer.

greys: In any kind of shade. Although it is a "fall-color" for most of you, I like to wear it all over spring. My favourite is Catrice London's Weather Forecast.

orange: Bright oranges, not the peachy kind which are popping up everywhere now. My favorite here is Essie Vermillionaire which came out last year in summer. A really bright, almost neon orange. Another one, that is a bit more muted and wearable is China Glaze Life Preserver from their Anchors Away collection.

So these are just my personal trends. I know there are alot of other coming up, but that's what I like.

What are your nail trends for spring & summer?

Stay beautiful...
