Last weeks nails


A few weeks ago I saw the below tweet by Laila and I just had to reply, haha. screen-shot-2016-11-15-at-18-46-49
My bf mentioned a while ago that he liked silver nails so I went to my local boots, straight to the Barry M section (my fave nail polish brand) and picked up this metallic silver polish called molten metal. Two coats and a top coat after and voilaaaa.I had this polish for nearly two weeks without it chipping and I really liked it! What do you think of it? 🙂


This week’s mani / Freestyle by Barry M


Screen Shot 2016-04-13 at 20.14.19I am a bit of a shopaholic and instead of buying expensive clothes and shoes I am now buying nail polishes… As I wrote in my previous nail post, I’m quite obsessed with my nails. Better that than expensive designer bags? I think so. Spring is upon us so I decided to order a few new bright colours (read: some pinks and nudes). This is a lovely dusty pink that gives just the right amount of colour without being too boring.

How many coats of polish? Two.



DIY Manicure / How I do my own nails


I get quite a lot of comments on my nails. People seem to assume I’m one of those who visit the nail salon on the regular and get them done, but oh no. I do them myself. They’re in a almond shape, semi-long and strong. Always in a nude, pastel or dark colour. The only colour I don’t wear is red. After I quit my cabin crew job I stopped wearing red nail polish as that was one of the few allowed colours.
I take good care of them and give myself a little manicure nearly weekly, and this is how.

You need:

  • Nail file
  • Nail buffer. My one is from Leighton Denny
  • Base coat
  • Nail polish
  • Optional: Top coat

Base coat from Sephora (3 in 1 strengthening nail care), nail polish from my favourite brand Barry M, Seche Vite top coat

Start by removing any old polish with a acetone free nail polish remover – it’s less harsh on the skin and nails Next, file into desired shape and buff buff buff till they are smooth and add a layer of base coat
Paint with two to three layers with your polish. This one is called Eat My Dust (light blue), haha. Lastly, if I don’t have much time or feel a bit impatient I add a layer of Seche Vite, which makes them dry so much quicker.
This little manicure of mine usually last for about a week, sometimes longer!
