Happy Monday, lovelies! I don’t know how much The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is celebrated elsewhere, but here in the UK it’s madness! Union Jack flags are everywhere, people are merry and cheery drunk all day long – and of course I’m not going to miss this chance to do a proper celebration :)

Nail Art: Chic vs Tribal

 Chic vs Tribal

As the title says, I was wondering if I could do tribal nail art in a chic way. I mean, really, the best part of tribal designs is their vibrant mix of colours and patters…right? So, would taking the ‘spark’ out of the design kill the fun…? Read More

Craft Tutorial: Beaded Bezel Ring

Beaded Bezel Ring

Awww… Just looking at these lovely Swarovki stones makes me drool…. Oh, ahhh, sorry, I’m good, thank you, and you?

Well, well, where can I start? I love Swarovski crystals, and I especially adore their rivolis (you know, pointy, gold back ones?) – although I couldn’t really use them without fancy (and rather expensive) settings before. But I am a different person now, because I can make peyote bezels with them (whoot, whoot)!!! So, with this greatest excitement, I shall move on to the tutorial :) Read More

Anthropologie Knockoff Tutorial:
Colored Brilliance Bowl

Colored Brilliance Bowl

I was trying to sort out my nail polish boxes the other day – I mean, some of the polishes were really old, nearly ten years old, all sticky and yuck… But still, I found it quite difficult to throw even these old ones away, and wanted to give them a final good use before saying good-bye. Then I found a perfect project, from no other than the lovely Anthropologie!

Nail Art: Galaxy + Constellations

Galaxy + Constellations

Happy Monday, lovelies! Today happens to be my mum’s birthday, my best friend’s first wedding anniversary and solar eclipse – sounds busy right, but these things happened without me being there… in Japan (boo). And… if you lived in a place where you could see the ‘Ring of Fire’, I am really jealous!

Anyways, this week’s nail art is everything about stars – the galaxy and constellations. I know nothing about constellations, though, and had to do a bit of research first. Read More
