25th (Silver) Wedding Anniversary


No, no, no, not my 25th wedding anniversary. I've been married only a few
years. But my sister number 3 and her husband -obviously- celebrated their
25th Wedding Anniversary at the beginning of this month and they had a great
party last weekend for friends and family. Want to see my nails from the event?


The theme of the party was of course silver so I went with that, and a wintery
theme seemed suitable as it is still winter and we have some snow in Sweden.
even had silver pants and a grey top to match my entire outfit to my nails.



And what better than Sonoma Nail Art - Wine Country Wedding
to act as snowfall. I won this polish in a Giveaway. It contains 2 sizes of
white matte hex glitters and light green shimmer suspended in a clear base.
applied a somewhat milky base coat first to cover up my yellow nails.

Sonoma Nail Art - Wine Country Wedding

And to further cover up my somewhat yellowed nails I applied
Models Own - Sterling Silver with a sponge to the tips of my
nails fading down to the center of my nails in a random pattern.


Ontop of that I stamped a snowflake from Shany Image Plate SH17 using
Konad - White. The accent finger was stamped with Bundle Moster Image
Plate BM-311 and Cheeky Plate CH29 using Konad - Cool Red.


A heart from Red Angel Plate Ra-110 was stamped o the
thumb and the initials of my sister number 3 and her husband from
Konad M18 using Konad - Cool Red and Black Pearl.



In the center of the snowflakes I applied 1mm Clear Swarowski - Crystals
from Viva La Nails and to my accent nails 3mm Rose Crystal Rhinestones
from Born Pretty Store. Top Coat. Done! Photos of nails taken in natural light.

Born Pretty Store an other Number - Review


Here comes a review of a Nail Polish from Born Pretty Store.
I already reviewd an other color of this polish a couple of days ago.
That polish had a scent but this one didn't. And I'm not talking about
the smell of polish. This is a cream polish on the thinner side.


I had to do 3 coats and still the result was not the best. Luckily this
polish dries fast. All photos are without top coat and in natural light.

The brush is a great size even though this is a small 8ml bottle. It
was a little wonky with some stray bristles. But I just cut those away.


Here is the polish name as it appears on the website and a link to it.

Rhinestones in an other light - Review


Re-cycling rhinestones

Now why would I want to do that? These do not have a hight prize tag...
This is not the first time I am reviewing Crystal Rhinestones from Born Pretty
Store. And these Rose Crystal Rhinestones has a beautiful color and shine to
them. But this time I thought that I would do something different. A test of quality.


How I went About

I applied rhinestones to a manicure the normal way and when I removed
them I put them in acetone to remove the polish from them. Some Rhinestones
don't go well with acetone. But these I have to say are of great quality.

 The acetone did nothing to them more than remove the nail polish. In the
manicure I posted yesterday I used re-cycled Rhinestones. See in the photo
above just how shiny the Re-used Rhinestines are. - - They are like New!


These Cystal Rhinestones however come packaged as shown in the photo
above, in a small plastick bag. I chose to put them in a small jar for easy access.

Here are the names how they appear on the website and links to them:

Born Pretty Store Nail Polish Review



No Top Coat

With Top Coat

Review of Born Pretty Store Nail Polish

At first this seemed to be a plain cream polish. But when I looked closely
I saw it is has a subtle Purple/Blue shimmer to it. About application, very nice
smooth texture easy to apply and dries quickly. On super short nubbins you might
get away with just one coat. I did 2 coats for the photos. An other thing I noticed
is that this polish has a scent, just like the MISSHA HGR01 polish does.

With Top Coat
The subtle shimmer is more visivle when you apply top coat.
Even though this is a small 8ml bottle the brush is of good size. The
bristles are soft so they don't cause any streaks. Application is easy.


All photos taken in natural light.
