Movember nails

Let’s not forget that November means movember! I had planned to make more than one mani for this cause, but somehow it’s the last day of November and I have one made one…

For this movember look I used Breakfast at Tiffany’s as the base together with Black dress not optional, both from OPI’s new Holiday collection called Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The details are created using Movember stickers & stencils from Whats up nails.

Beauty favorites October

Here are my favorite beauty product from this past month!

L’Oréal – Elvital Extraordinary Clay Shampoo & Conditioner

I have to say that I like everything about these two! They are cheap, you can find them at the supermarket, they smell nice and the hair feels really good after using them. Well ok, I know one thing that I don’t like and it’s that the conditioner is only 200ml instead of 250ml like the shampoo. Right now I have a bottle of shampoo with a lot of product left and a bottle of conditioner that is empty.

OPI – Black dress not optional

This black polish with shimmer is from OPI’s latest collection, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I just got it and I have already used it several times in different manicures.

By Terry – Baume de rose

With the cold autumn weather my lips have started to get dry. Baume de rose is the best product I’ve tried to get nice and smooth lips. I only have to use it once a day to keep my lips happy.

Universal Beauty – Secret flush blush

This is actually the first creme blush I’ve tried and I really like it. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical at first, but together with a blending sponge the result looks really natural and pretty. This shade has a bit of a glow in it too.

Too Faced – Better than sex mascara

I got this mascara in May when I was in Barcelona, but it isn’t until recently that I have started to use it. The first time I tried it I didn’t like it, I thought the brush was really bad and it gave me spider legs. But then something happened the second time I used, it was really good and it has been since!

Halloween nail art

Halloween is just around the corner and I have some Halloween themed nail art to show you. Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration!

What if you really really don’t like spiders? Well make them holo of course! For this mani I used Kimono-over from Essie, Space race from H&M, Spider stencils from Snail vinyls and some freehand skills.

For this mani I used Lincoln park after dark, O Suzi mio, Purple palazzo pants, Lady in black and Alpine snow, all from OPI together with Graveyard stencils from Whatsupnails.

And here is a close-up on the thumb just because it turned out pretty good.

For this black cat french manicure I used New York from piCture pOlish, 5042 Lady Wizard from Depend and Alpine snow from OPI.

The holo spider decided to leave some holo spider webs on my nails. For this manicure I used Black dress not optional from OPI as the base and I stamped with Space race from H&M using stamping plate Mother nature 04 and the crystal clear stamper from MoYou London.

This is a recreation of a mani I did last Halloween, but this time with holo. For this mani I used Unicorn dream, Forbidden witchcraft, Sweet elves, 031 and 497 from Depend.

These spooky fall leaves are inspired by a picture I saw on Pinterest. Someone had painted fall leaves white and then painted eyes and a mouth on them to make them look like ghosts. I though that idea would be great as nail art, and I think I was right! For this mani I used Black dress not optional, Alpine snow and Lady in black from OPI together with Autumn leaf stencils from Snail vinyls.

October is not just Halloween, it’s also breast cancer awareness month, so I decided to combine the two with these pink Hello Kitty skulls. These nails took me forever to make, since I’m apparently not friends with the stamping plate I used. For this mani I used O2 488, 488, 039, black and white stamping polish from Depend, together with stamping plate Fun 9 from Fab Ur Nails.

img_9296

For this bat-man(i) I used Meow from piCture pOlish together with stamping plate Festive 15 from MoYou London and silver and black stamping polish from Depend.

img_9487

Did someone say holoween, how cool are these orange holo pumpkins!? For this mani I used Forbidden witchcraft as the base together with 039, both from Depend along with Pumpkin faces stencils and Dot zig zag tape from Whatsupnails.

How will you paint you nails for halloween?

 

OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I have a confession to make, I have never seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s, so I have no idea what the film is about. However I do appreciate this year’s holiday collection from OPI, and maybe now I have to see the film (with matching nails of course).

I know why you’re here, so let’s just look at the swatches.

img_8280OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s – I believe in manicures

I believe in manicures is a baby blue creme polish. On the first coat it is very streaky but with the right application technique you can get it opaque in just two coats.

One coat of Champagne for breakfast over I believe in manicures.

img_8399

img_8401OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Champagne for breakfast

Champagne for breakfast is a silver holo glitter polish that is supposed to be a glitter topper, so it will need a lot of coats to be opaque on its own. Here I’m wearing three coats.

Black dress not optional is a black creme polish with super fine silver shimmer that covers in two coats.

One coat of Five-and-ten over Black dress not optional.

img_8296OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Apartment for two

Apartment for two is a bright fuchsia creme polish that covers in two coats. It’s not a unique shade in any way but the formula is amazing. If you don’t already own a polish in this color, this is the one to get.

img_8322OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Meet my “decorator”

Meet my “decorator” is an orange toned red creme polish that covers in two easy coats. It’s not a unique shade, but the formula is amazing.

img_8324

img_8326OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Got the mean reds

Got the mean reds is a classic red creme polish that we’ve seen a million times before. But it’s a red polish with an amazing formula that covers in two coats and OPI is really good at making these types of reds.

img_8385OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Fire escape rendezvous

Fire escape rendezvous is a red metallic polish with glitter pieces in different sizes and shapes. It covers in just one coat, but I used two coats to get a deeper color and to get more glitter on the nails.

img_8284

img_8286OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a pale pink polish with fine gold shimmer. It covers in two coats which I was quite surprised to find out seeing it’s such a light color. The formula of this polish is a bit thick.

One coat of Sunrise… bedtime! over Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

img_8395

img_8397OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Sunrise… bedtime!

Sunrise… bedtime! is a pink holo glitter polish that is supposed to be a glitter topper. It is somewhat covering in two coats, which I’m wearing here.

img_8393OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Can’t read without my lipstick

Can’t read without my lipstick is a burgundy crelly polish that covers in two coats and it dries super shiny.

img_8408

At the first glimpse of the pictures of this collection I didn’t feel like it looked like a holiday collection. But after getting the collection and having tried all polishes I have to say that I’ve changed my mind a bit. Sure it has a lot of light colors, but I think it works for the holidays anyway. And who says you can only wear dark colors during the winter season?

I think my favorite shades has to be Fire escape rendezvous and Sunrise… bedtime! just because I don’t have any polishes like that from before.

What do you think about this year’s holiday collection from OPI?
