Autumn is here!

Hi everyone,


it's September 21st and that means summer is officially over, the sun will hide her face earlier and the nights lengthen (unless you're on the southern hemisphere, in that case spring has sprung and you're heading for summer ;) Of course most polish creators have released their fall collections weeks ago and I have picked up a few vampy-er polishes already, among which a gorgeous shimmery brown that I used as the base for the manicure I want to show you today:

My Northern Ireland nails

Hi everyone!


It's been a while since my last post but I have a good great excuse: we have been away for a short trip to Northern Ireland! We were invited by a family friend and as my husband passed his last exam and I could get a week off from work, we booked a flight, packed a bag and off we were, to the land of 40 shades of green (or at least that's what I've been told but I swear they can easily add a zero to the end of that number and there are still more shades to be seen). I won't bore you with a zillion pictures of the lovely pastures and the beautiful mountains and the incredible sea (update: but if you are interested... scroll all the way down, you can blame/thank Juanita for them), but I will show you what has been on my nails the entire week and only showed a bit of tip wear when we arrived home yesterday evening (or rather very very very early this morning):

Sparkly fall

Hi everyone,


it's September so that means summer is almost over and fall is eagerly waiting for its turn. This morning I smelled that special scent in the air that says fall's almost here and I decided to make my nails look like the glorious sunny autumn day that I remember from a trip to Canada, with trees dressed in all sorts of gorgeous reds and oranges and golds and twittering birds hidden in those leaves (instead of the drabby yellowy-greens and browns and screeching seagulls that are outside my window at the moment ;) And this is the final manicure:
