nail party

to start off – it´s REALLY hard to write a post with wet nailpolish on my fingernails.
anyway, i want to show you my nailpolish collection, yay!
TIPS FOR A PERFECT MANICURE:
 1) wash your hands with dish liquid – this way the polish will last longer
2) don´t brush too slow, do it rather fast and without fear of blotting, the finish will look much smoother  
(same rule applicable for eyeliner as well)
3) don´t cut the cuticles – actually, do as less as possible with cuticles, if at all push the skin back with a  
(best you just use a lot of handlotion and nothing else)
4) for the wow effect: just glue something on one of the nails, like a little bead
(or paint one nail in another color)
let´s start with anny: i love the huge color range they offer and it doesn´t shiver for about 4 days!

isa dora wonder nail polish: i liked it this summer because of all the pastel tones, but with the wide brush it´s not really easy to precisely paint the nails.

favorite of all: OPI, such nice colors and stays forever on the nail without a scraper but i only possess two – at least for now!

and here is how my manicure turned out:

an instant out of time. (friend edition II)

i want to share something really special with you – part II.
these aren´t the most artistic, high quality photos of all – but they show something very precious, my friends. here you see my happiest moments over the past years and the best people one can imagine to have as friends.
all pictures taken by me, unless stated otherwise (or if i am in it 🙂 )

DIY – braided hex nut bracelet

crafting is a new passion of mine and i seem to spend more and more time braiding hex nuts into bracelets and researching for new diy projects like these.
TIP: visit your local building centre and let yourself get inspired by all the items that can be used for making jewellery! also, if you want a DIY supplier that offers really everything you need, i would recommend ornamentea.
even though they have to ship from north carolina and you have to pay the shipping fee and taxes i put up with that because i can´t find the right stuff in my surrounding area.
here is one of my finished wristbands, find the instructions at honestlywtf!
have fun crafting away,
xoxo
