June favorites

Here are my favorite manis from June. I actually though this month’s theme would’ve been fruits, since I’ve done a couple of fruit manicures that I really like. But I guess I liked these flower nails more. And the flowers with the blue background is the one I like most of them all.

Which one is your favorite?

Midsummer nails

Today we celebrate midsummer in Sweden. It’s a day where we eat herring, early potatoes, strawberries, drink schnapps, play games and dance around the maypole.

I made some midsummer appropriate nails where I pained seven kinds of flowers. Because if you pick seven different flowers on midsummer’s eve and put them under your pillow you are supposed to dream about the one you’re gonna spend the rest of your life with!

The base is Let’s be friends! from the Hello Kitty collection. The flowers are painted with a bunch of other OPI’s.

I think that the thumb nail turned out the best, too bad that you can’t see it in most photos.

I had to go out to pick some flowers to put under my pillow… Just kidding, I have already found the one I want to spend my life with! But the picture turned out pretty good for the occasion.

Glad midsommar! / Happy midsummer to you all!


Flowers for the weekend 

Yesterday evening I didn’t know what to paint on my nails. After some thinking I decided flowers was a good idea, so I painted some roses. And I think they turned out soooo good, I love them!

The base is The I’s have it, a lovely blue polish from Alice through the looking glass collection, that I just adore. Then I used Mod about you and a dotting tool, to make the first step of the roses. After that I used Shorts story and a detail brush (I used Pure color #10 detail brush from Whatsupnails) to complete the roses. I know that I’ve used Mod about you and Shorts story together many times before when I’m painting roses, but they just work so well together! For the leaves I started with I’m sooo swamped! and than I randomly just painted a little blit of That’s hula-rious! over it using my detail brush.

Now that I think about it I should’ve photographed each step, to make a better tutorial. Is that something you want me to do in the future? Please let me know in the comments!

These nails were really easy to make and actually didn’t take that long to finish (good for me since I started painting too late last night).

Hope you like these nails as much as I do!
