My New Years Nails

 I've been letting myself go a little here in Sweden polish wise, I normally don't buy this much polish but when you get your hands on so much variety you have to use the opportunity ;)
My latest haul, I got the Orly polishes half off!

Isadora - Love Crush
Isadora - Pool Crush
Isadora - Emerald Crush
Orly - Blue Collar
Orly - Orange Sorbet
Orly - It's Not Me It's You

Now on to my new years manicure, this looks much better in person, I have a personal vendetta with my camera at the moment, every photo I take comes out wonky in some way.

Polishes used:
Unnamed black polish in a skull shaped bottle
Isadora - Love Crush
Isadora - Pool Crush

Candy Stripes

Hope Christmas has been good to everyone, I got many wonderful things, my brother gave me a card game called Cards Against Humanity which is hilarious and a little nasty, full of black humor and satire.
After we ate and opened up our presents we decided to watch zombie movies, we watched Dawn of the Dead and World War Z which is pretty good and Peter Capaldi the new Doctor in Doctor Who played a Doctor for the W.H.O. institute in the WWZ movie, coincidence?? I don't think so!
Can't wait to see more of Capaldi in Doctor Who, unfortunately the new season starts next fall...
I can't wait that long!!
And last night we watched Zombieland, it's always fun ;)

I got lucky and found some Essie polishes on sale in Ahléns.

 I bought Rock The Boat which is a pale blue polish, Naughty Nautical is teal and Madison Ave-hue is a hot pink one, they all have a subtle silver shimmer, that's what drew me to them ;) 

 I'm not quite happy how the pictures came out, not a lot of natural light to work with so I used the kitchen light but that made my skin look some kind of reddish-brown, but at least the manicure is pretty decent :)

Polishes used:
Essie - Naughty Nautical
Essie - Rock The Boat

Don't they look yummy?

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you all!!
 I'll be spending Christmas with my friend and her boyfriend, we are planning on having a Zombie Movie Marathon tonight after we open out presents, it'll be awesome ;)

This will be my Christmas manicure, there are a few things I'm not happy with, I should have made the white and green area a bit smaller so the burgundy polish would show more, but other than that I'm pretty happy how it turned on.

Polishes used:
OPI - DS Extravagance
OPI - Alpine Snow
KleanColor - Metallic Green

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with lots of cookies and candles ;)

1st Haul ;)

I'll be spending the Holidays in Sweden and I'm using the opportunity to find nail polish brands that are not available back home. There isn't much variety in Iceland so I'm in nail polish heaven here in Sweden ;) 

So here is what I found on my first shopping trip.

I stocked up on Seche Vite topcoat, best topcoat ever and it's so hard for me to get my hands on it.
Also bought OPI  DS Reflection and Extravagance, OPI is available back home but not the DS collection, they where pretty expensive but I almost don't care ;)
And lastly I got three polishes from American Apparel, I had seen swatches of Peacock and Crescent Heights over at Lisa's blog The Polish Playground and I wanted them badly and the last one is Aqua Dust, a really pretty glitter.

Really happy with them all :)

Funky Christmas Trees?

Finally I've got time to do some blogging :) School's over until January and work has taken it's place.
All my attention and free time went into school so I haven't been doing any nail art for a while now, my nails and cuticles are not in the best shape ever but I decided to post this manicure anyway.
Some of the photos are taken under a lamp and some in daylight.... or almost daylight, the days are getting shorter and shorter, now we only have a couple of hours of daylight, it's really tricky to take decent photographs.

Polishes used:
Kleancolor - True Purple
Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Teal
Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Candy
Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Clover
Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Fuchsia
Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Black

As you can see the colors vary from photo to photo, tricky business.

I'll be spending Christmas and New Years in Sweden, I'm leaving in a few days and I'm sooo excited.
I went last year also and had a really good time. The nail polish hoarder in me is squeeing with delight, new polishes, new polishes!!!
Last time I saw a lot of OPI's, Essie's and Isadora's but what other polish brands can I find there?? And where??
Can I find Seche Vite in Sweden?? 
Please let me know so I know where to look ;)
