NOTD , belated NOTV-Day and a surprise..

Hello lovely ladies!!!

How are we?

I hope that this week has found everyone as they want to be! ;)

Well although I had taken the photos the day I made my nails I didn't manage to upload it to my laptop earlier so today I will show you my nails as were on the V-day and as they are today as well! =)

On Monday the 14th I decided that I wanted to have red nails (how original!!) so I checked my stash for a red color that would please me. I didn't want anything shimmery or too bold... just a pure red! And I found a polish I had never used, the red one of the "Golden Rose, Paris Nail Lacquer"-labeled as nr.89! It was a gift and I hadn't have the chance to give it a try earlier so I thought let's see! Surprise, surprise! It didn't let me down! 

Even though you cannot really see it at those crappy -excuse my French- pictures of mine, it is a beautiful red!!! I used a coat of OPI Envy as a base, two coats of the 89 and a coat of Healthy Loof Hoof Laquer as a top coat. I topped two nails of each hand with a clear polish with glitter called "nr.69-Christmas Glitter" of the same brand that I bought on the same day.

As I found out these polishes are of the "cheap" ones- about 2.50€ - but they lasted pretty well for 4 day before they seemed a little cranky and I didn't like the look of them!

Soooo after that I had to go to the beauty shop around the corner and get myself some more colors of the brand-2.5€ only not a thing to think over a lot :P! I got the one you can see at the below pictures that reminded me of a pricey one I had seen at Chanel I think and a green one that I will show you when I use it! I used a coat of OPI Envy as a base, two coats of the 68 and a coat of Healthy Loof Hoof Laquer as a top coat.

What do you think of the colors? I believe that the graphite one has depicted better and therefore you can make out it's beauty!;)

I am hoping that this week I will have some more posts up! 
Wish you a great sennight!!!
Many kisses!!!

p.s. I thought I could share with you the view of Arcadia's mountains as I saw it last weekend during a small excursion.. This is taken at the Mainalo Ski Center! Everything was dressed in white! =)

February 2011 wish list

Good morning lovelies!!

NOTD- Is it Blue? Black? Brown? Suzi does all kind of things here!

Hallo lovelies!!

Long time no see and I thought I could do a nails of the day today to show you how my nails looks now! I have used OPI's Nail Envy, Suzi Skies In The Pyrenees and Suzi Says Feng Shui (!).

Suzi Skies In The Pyrenees in all nails apart from the pinky one which features Suzi Says Feng Shui

Suzi Says Feng Shui (left) and Suzi Skies In The Pyrenees (right)

 Suzi Skies In The Pyrenees in all nails apart from the index one which features Suzi Says Feng Shui

OPI's Nail Envy was used as a base coat, then two coats of each polish was applied and a coat of Healthy Loof Hoof Laquer as a top coat.

Suzi Skies In The Pyrenees is one of my favorite dark varnishes. At first looking it in the bottle you think it's of a really dark blue - almost black color. When you have the first coat at your nails it turns into some kind of dark brown and at the second coat becomes a very profound blue-black-gray with a imperceptible shimmer. Does it make any sense??? Well that's just how it is! =)

Suzi Says Feng Shui is just GREAT!!! I love the opaqueness of the color at even the first coat and of course the color itself!;)

Because, as you too conceived, I could not make my mind on which color to use today I decided to apply them both with the darker to prevail and the lighter as a sauciness! :P 
I really liked the result and I hope you liked it too!

That's it! Do you have any of these colors? What do you think of them? 

Many kissez your way!
