Happy Thanksgiving to all Americans, Happy Chanukah to all Jewish and Happy Day to everyone else!
For today's entry in the 33DC I used the same pattern as my previous mani, but with different colors. Well, to be honest, I tricked a little. It's not exactly the same pattern. But its the same style of pattern: a Mehndi Henna pattern.
Wow, day 29 in the 33DC. I didn't even think I will get this far! But I did... Nice!
So today calls for my favorite pattern. Hmmm... that's a hard one. I have so many favorites! But I guess I do have a special emotional little space in my heart for the Mehndi Henna designs (the henna hand art) I can look at those little drawing forever. All the tiny little details and all the beautiful patterns... I totally love it! Yes, the Henna pattern is definitely the one I am going with!
I really love Alter Ego polishes. They are so unique and delicate. Recently Cynthia, the maker of Alter Ego polishes has been working on perfecting their formula. They are all 4 free and camphor free and their special formula is giving them a beautiful velvet-y finish. So I was thrilled when Cynthia sent me her polishes to review! And today I would like to share the first one of them with you. This is Pencil Pusher.
Today my entry for the 33DC is somewhat an experimental mani. I received my order or the holographic multi-chrome polishes from ILNP, and I pretty much wanted to try them all at once. Of course it didn't quite work so instead I just did this lazy manicure which I can call experimental. It also has lines in it. LOL
It is Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special! Woohoo!!!
Well, what am I so happy about? No reason really. Sadly, my country is not going to be among those who can watch it on the local cinemas or on Global TV. We're out of range or just not important enough. I suppose the local Doctor Who fan base here is not big enough. But I'm ok with that. I anyway haven't (yet!) finished watching all the 6th and 7th seasons so I'm in no rush to see the special movie just yet. It doesn't mean that I'm not still very excited about it! And to show you my excitement, I decided to hop into this lovely Doctor Who Nail Art collaboration. And here are my Doctor Who nails:
Finally an entry for the 33DC that was relatively easy to decide about! Recently I saw this mani on Pinterestand I just HAD to try it. When I got to its origin, I found this tutorial at Teen Vogue. Awesome.
Another entry for the 33DC that was super hard for me. First - to come up with an idea I haven't tried yet, and once I did - to actually execute it. None was an easy task. But then, thanks to one of the recent nail world's dramas - I came up with this.
To celebrate her anniversary, Kim from Overall Beauty is having a fabulous vacation with her hubby of 30 years. So while she's having fun, I made a little post for her blog, about what my true love is. I also did a little mani, inspired by the super talented Tatjana of Raggio di Luna's Painted rocks, to escort the post and added a couple of photos of my beautiful Queen Xanthippe. Please check it out by clicking the image below ;-))
Today's entry in the 33DC has to feature the color I own the most of. This was a tricky one actually. Because for a while I was sure I had the most of Blue polishes. But since I am now in the process of re-arranging my polishes in my Helmers drawers, I found out a very surprising piece of information: While I have a little over 300 Blue polishes, I have just a tiny bit less then 400 of.... *drum rolls* ... Orange polishes.And since Orange is my most favorite color, this fact made me very happy. So here's my mani featuring my Orange polishes:
So we're starting the last 10 entries in the 33DC today, with a Geometric theme and an entry I am actually happy about. In fact, I was so happy about it that I decided to do a tutorial for it too. It's a bit of time consuming and sort of an Occupational Therapy, but I enjoyed it and I hope you would too.
The other day when I wasn't sure about what color I should paint my nails with, my bestie Gosia said I should go with purple. So I did, and I found one helluva polish while doing so! The funny thing is... I never even thought that I would need this polish...
Today's 33DC entry was totally annoying for me. You know this feeling when you get an idea and you gotta do it no matter what? And it fails and you re-do it over and over and you just can't let go? Well, this is what today's mani did to me. I saw this picture of full nails decals and I totally fell in love with it. So I decided I can do it without the decals themselves...
Today's theme in the 33DC is Europe. I am not sure I like those hugely general themes. I mean - a country could be easier. But a whole continent? woah........ But then I received my Elevation Polish order and I knew exactly what Europe is to me!
Ok first - a little confession: my entry for the 33DC today is a little bit of a cheat. It is not based on a pattern in my wardrobe, but it is based on a pattern that I am dying to have in my wardrobe. Ever since I saw this sweater I have been dreaming of it. One day I also hope to have it, but for now... at least it made for a mani inspiration.
I decided to shorten my nails. After a loooooong time of keeping them long, I decided that it actually looked like a witch (or maybe it was just a Halloween inspiration?) and I decided to go short. Well, nothing to worry really because they grow way too fast for my liking. And besides, I still have a few manis featuring my long witchy nails that I haven't showed you yet. But just so you know, this is how short I decided to go.
If you know me a little, you'd know I have this little addiction other then the nail polish. I really, really really love LEGO. At home I even have a whole room that is dedicated to LEGO. And since really recently I have seen this super awesome take on the LEGO mani, I decided that one to be my tutorial to follow in today's 33DC entry.
