Seashells by the Seashore

Hello guys! Long time no see! How have you been?
My Spanish courses started today, which means I got access to the school's fast wireless and finally got to upload some picturrrrres for my posts.

Triangularity: Born Pretty rhinestones review

Hey-oh! Welcome to my second review post! Today is the day I'm finally talking about something different than nails (but about nails, too. x)

The heroes of this post are the 4mm rhinestones from Born Pretty store, and should I tell you I was baffled upon seeing them in my package. Thing is, they were sent to me by mistake (instead of round glitter) and there was no way I'd use them in nail art.

So I decided to make a pendant.

Всем привет! Сегодня я наконец-то покажу вам что-то отличное от ногтей (но и ногти тоже. x) А именно, стразы из магазина Born Pretty.

Когда я только достала их из конверта, то несколько растерялась: вместо них должны были прислать круглый глиттер, и для моих ногтей они были слишком велики. 

Поэтому я решила сделать кулон.

Neon Mash-Up: Born Pretty studs review

Hello August, hello everyone! Did you miss me? ;)

My July was loaded with events, none of which I could tell you about because my laptop broke down. :( It tool a while to find a replacement, but now the search is over and I'm finally ready to post anew!

Всем привет, всех с августом! Скучали по мне? ;)

Несмотря на то, что мой Июль был полон событий, рассказать вам о них мне не удалось — в начале месяца сломался мой ноутбук. Найти ему замену оказалось не так просто, но поиск всё же окончен, и я готова к новым постам! 

As you may know, during the last month I've participated in Manimunchkin's nail polish challenge, which ended yesterday. I've managed to complete each day — yay me! — but couldn't write a separate post for each of them because of the technical problems. But fear not, I'm absolutely going to recreate my favourite manis from the challenge and show them here in details! In the meantime, you can see the designs I wore below — they were the ones to cheer me up in this year's cold, moody Summer.

Вчера подошёл к концу лакомарафон у Ани Manimunchkin, в котором я умудрилась добежать до самого финиша — ура-ура! — но из-за технических проблем подробно осветить так и не смогла. Но не волнуйтесь, я обязательно воссоздам свои самые любимые маникюры и напишу про них во всех подробностях. А пока предлагаю посмотреть итоговый коллаж — эти дизайны отлично поднимали мне настроение нынешним неприятно холодным уральским летом. 

And the mani I want to show you today is no exception —  it truly is a hot mess! ;D

И сегодня я покажу вам такой же "тёплый" маникюр — настоящее неоновое месиво! :D

Sail Away: turquoise nails for 15DNC



As much as I love writing long posts, I will be terse today and let the pictures do the talking. The thing is, my laptop's wifi connector's nearly broken, my tablet's in service because of a pinking charging port, and I'm going to another town for the weekend. All quiiiiiiiiite unexpectedly.

Как бы я ни любила строчить длиннющие посты, сегодня буду краткой и позволю вам просто поглядеть картинки. Дело в том, что у моего ноутбука сломался wi-fi передатчик, планшет отправился в ремонт из-за неисправного зарядочного порта, а сама я еду на выходные в другой город. Всё это, как водится, — этакий нежданчик.

A different galaxy: coral nails for 15DNC

Hi guys! I have two announcements to make!

First, look at my new domain name!!G How awesome is it? I've been going by this nickname for about ten years now, and it was time to finally make it official. I'm yet to transfer my bloglovin' followers and get a pretty email address, but hopefully these issues will be resolved soon. :D

Second, this month is promising to be busy for both the blog and my nails, as I'm participating in the Summer Nail Challenge held by Anna Manimunchkin! I knew I had to take part in it the moment I saw the theme list; not only because it was full of summery awesomeness, but also because half of them coincided with my own to-do mani list. And that's killing two stones with one bird...or something. x)

Today's prompt is one of those happy coincidences: coral nails inspired by my blog's new design, except in a little different colour. It's nebulae design (see my tutorial here), with a bit of a bokeh effect mixed in, done with acrylic paint. Originally, I was aiming to mimic the blog's colour scheme, but it wouldn't work well with the polish I chose. Thus, this part of space is on the orange side.
