Monthly Mani Favorites – June

So I’m a few days late with these this time, but I have been just busy this last weekend! We had a bachelorette party for my sister on Saturday, and as we live in different cities, I left on Friday and got back very late on Saturday (or very early on Sunday). It was a blast though; we went fake camping in the morning, then back to the city to burn the bride (I would so not do that), and spent the rest of the evening eating out and going to “secret” bar, where we had amazing drinks. And which did not allow picture taking, otherwise you would’ve gotten pics! I had a drink where they had infused Coke with popcorn and mixed it with whiskey and raspberry syrup and gods know what else. Some drinks had smoke coming out of them, others fist-sized ice cubes. Very cool.

Anyways, here are this month’s favourites! Pretty heavy on the watermarble, which were pretty successful if I say so myself.

Vähän ollaan myöhässä kuukauden parhaiden kanssa, mutta olen ollut hippasen kiireinen viime viikonloppuna. Pidimme nimittäin siskolleni polttarit lauantaina, ja matkan takia lähdin matkaan jo perjantaina, ja kotiuduin sitten hyvin myöhään lauantaina (tai hyvin aikaisin sunnuntaina). Mutta hyvä päivä se oli; aamulla menimme muka-eräretkeilemään, siitä takaisin kaupunkiin morsianta polttamaan (en muuten ehkä itse tekisi sitä), ja loppuilta menikin syödessä ravintolassa ja siitä jatkoille salakapakkaan. Jossa ei saanut ottaa kuvia niiden pirun hienoista drinkeistä, muuten olisin spämmännyt tänne. Itse join muunmuassa drinkin, jossa kokikseen oli infuusioitu popkornia, ja se sekoitettiin viskin ja vadelmasiirapin ja ties minkä kanssa. Näin drinkkejä joista noisi savua, ja drinkkejä joissa oli nyrkinkokoinen jääpala. Aika coolia!

Mutta nyt niihin suosikkeihin! Viime kuussa vesimarmorointi oli kovin onnistunutta:

And I know you want to see it (I would!): here’s a video from my personal Instagram that I took of burning my sister.

Ja koska tiedän että haluatte nähdä sen (minä ainakin haluaisin!), tässä lopuksi video toiselta Instagram-tililtäni, jossa näette miten morsiamen polttaminen käy:

Mermaid Monday – Summer Edition

Aloha! For this Mermaid Monday I did my nails in yellow, orange and hot pink, and let me tell you, I am feeling this tropical combo.

Aloha! Täksi merenneitomaanantaiksi laitoin kynnet keltaisen, orassin, ja kirkkaan pinkin yhdistelmällä, ja kyllä tämä trooppinen kombo uppoaa meikäläiseen!

I did a simple gradient over light yellow base with said yellow, two different oranges, and hot pink. After that I stamped images from Uberchic Mermaid Life – double for ring finger and little finger (see the pink scales).

Tein yksinkertaisen liukuvärin vaaleankeltaisen pohjan päälle vaaleankeltaisella, kahdella eri oranssilla, ja kirkkaalla pinkillä. Leimat ovat Uberchicin Mermaid Life -laatasta, nimettömässä ja pikkusormessa on kaksinkertainen leimaus (mikäli näette ne pinkit suomut).

I used / Käytin:

  • OPI Apartment for Two
  • Kiko 236
  • Kiko 483
  • Essence Love is in the Air
  • Painted Polish Midnight Mischief (for stamping)

And if you wonder about my thumb being different here (and in quite many other posts, actually), I can tell you it is getting some tea bag treatment. I am trying to grow a nasty break out, which is situated near midway my nail – so at the moment, it has just a random polish for protection (F.U.N Lacquer’s Unicorn Island). So for the foreseeable future, the nail art will be only on four nails.

Mikäli muuten ihmettelette että miksi peukalonkynteni on ihan eri näköinen kuin muut kynnet, niin vastaus on että siinä on tällä hetkellä menossa teepussikorjaus – kynnessäni on siis sivussa repeämä, joka on todella alhaalla kynnessä, ja yritän siis kasvattaa sitä pois. Tällä hetkellä sitä suojaa siis F.U.N Lacquerin Unicorn Island, ja sen takia teen nyt kynsitaidetta vain neljälle kynnelle.

But now, I’ll go drench my hair in oil treatment and hit the sauna – the joys of going blonde from brunette! Here you can see where I am at the moment; there’s some darkness and redness still in the roots, but the rest of it is starting to be a nice blonde. I just had these bleached for a second time, so they need some oily love to battle the dryness. Quite a change from the last time I posted about my hair!

Mutta nyt on aika laittaa öljyhoitoa hiuksiin ja laittaa sauna päälle – blondiksi värjäämisen ihanuuksia. Tässä tämänhetkinen tilanne; juurissa on vielä lämpöä ja punaisuutta, mutta latvat alkavat olla jo mukavan blondit. Juuri viime viikolla tehtiin toinen värinpoisto, joten öljyhoitoja taas tarvitaan kuiviin pituuksiin. Mutta aika muutos verrattuna viime kertaan!

That’s it for today! Have a nice week!

Tälläistä tänään! Mukavaa viikonjatkoa!

Purple Holo French Tips

Hi all! I know a French tip is a classic nail art type, but usually I have found it fairly boring to my taste. There’s nothing wrong with it, it just doesn’t ring my bells. So what you see here is pretty rare for me!

Huomenta kaikille! Ranskalainen manikyyri on klassikko, mutta minun makuuni se on ollut vähän tylsä. Ei siinä mitään vikaa ole, ranskis ei vain yleensä saa minun sydäntäni sykkimään – joten tämänpäiväiset kynnet ovat harvinaisuus!

quietlymadblog abstract french tip nails

It all started when I was feeling like using a purple holo – this is MooMoo’s Signatures Singing a Texas Lullaby, and it is my favourite purple at the moment. Holos are notoriously difficult to photograph, so just take my word for it: it’s incredibly pretty in real life!

But alone it was kinda lacking a bit of oompf, so I stamped some abstract forms to go with it (my partner thought they looked like bees. Really?) from Moyou London’s Frenchie 18 with Painted Polish’s Midnight Mischief.

Kaikki sai alkunsa siitä kun sain päähäni että haluan käyttää vaihteeksi violettia holoa – tämä on MooMoo’s Signatures Singing a Texas Lullaby, ja se on suosikkiviolettini tällä hetkellä. Holoa on tunnetusti pirun vaikea kuvata, joten uskokaa kun sanon että se on ihan pirun nätti livenä!

Mutta pelkkä ranskis oli vähän tylsä, joten leimasin sille kaveriksi abstrakteja kuvioita (jotka näyttivät partnerini mielestä mehiläisiltä. Mitä mieltä te olette?) Moyou Londonin laatasta Frenchie 18, käyttäen Painted Polishin Midnight Mischief -lakkaa.

I loved watching the holo purple flicker in the summer sun! Oh yeah, sun and warmth have finally arrived here in Finland, so it is a perfect time to let your nails shine! (Now I’ve jinxed it, and it will start hailing. It would be just my luck)

Until next time!

Holon hohtoa kelpasi ihailla kun aurinko osui siihen! Nyt kun aurinko ja lämpö näyttävät viimein saapuneen tänne Suomeenkin, on täydellinen aika antaa kynsien hehkua! (Paitsi että nyt kuitenkin alkaa taas satamaan rakeita. Niin aina käy kun sanoo että onpa kivat ilmat, kyllä te tiedätte)

Seuraavaan kertaan!

Snowflake nails

So it’s my birthday tomorrow, and I’m SICK. I think? I keep sneezing and I feel quite bad, but NOT AS BAD as when I’m usually really sick. Maybe this’ll pass..

So you understand why I’m not quite up to doing fancy nails. There is just zero inspiration. I wanted something pink, so I went with F.U.N Lacquer’s Daydream (gorgeous), and then I was like, MEH, let’s go with snowflakes.

But then later today, I went to get the post, and lo and behold: my order from Bundle Monster had arrived. I got two plates from the new Winter Kingdom collection, and of course there is snowflakes on one of them. Maybe I should redo my nails? Even MORE snowflakes! It IS a lovely plate, the snowflakes are flowery and cute… you’ll see in a few days!

Celestial animals

I love Gravity. I was so lucky to snatch it on a good price in a Facebook second hand nail polish market group (gosh that’s a long description. But it’s in Finnish so I had to translate – and it’s only one word in Finnish)! All the polishes are so gorgeous in the collection it belongs to.. Stupid Limited Editions, why are you limited? I was not so into nail art and polishes back in 2014 u.u. Picture Polish should bring them back!

ANYWAYS. Gravity is a “top coat”, meaning you layer it on top of darker polish, in my case Kiko’s black. The pictures show two coats:

I just love the color shift, don’t you?

It is like winter sky at night. Darkest time of the year is on us.

And of course I wanted to ruin it with stamping.

 Images from Moyou London Animal 12

I think I went a bit too glittery with Essie’s Apres-chic, IF that is possible. The theme in my head was “celestial animals”. Moyou London just released these animal plate series, I instantly grapped this one: I’m a sucker for Slavic influence. They remind me of the Russian fairytales I read as a child..

I need a plainer silver stamping polish, though. That glitter gets everywhere!

#smooshynailsunday – blue, silver, and bronze

This week has gone by so fast, I barely had time to do this prompt! I wanted to, because I thought the result would be interesting, but.. hmm. It does not look like I imagined it would.

#smooshynailsunday

I used Essie Aprés-chic, Kiko 521, and bronze glitter from Etude House Princess Happy Ending Jasmine set. I think I went too metallic with the colours? It looks a bit frozen. Bit annoying, but then again, smooshynailsundays are for experimenting with colours.

I added some stamping:

Turtles? Why turtles, you might ask. It’s because I had a cool turtle plate, OBVIOUSLY. That and the fact that I just did snowflakes last Tuesday. Tribal Turtles for the win! Ooh. That could be a thing!

And I’ve actually had turtles on my mind lately. I’m neck-deep in my course diary, and I’ve been talking about Garden of Eden, and that got me thinking about Darwin and Galapagos islands and dragons and could it also be a Garden of Eden, as he thought life started there? So turtles and dragons and sea and rocky islands have been floating in my head.

Thank Gosh this semester will be over soon.

Independence Day Nails

It’s  the 99th Independence Day here in Finland, so I thought I’d do some thematic nails. Our flag colours are blue and white, and it’s winter, so that makes it… snowflakes? Yes. I added some flakes in silver too, to spice it up:

I used: Essence I ❤ my blue jeans (the best dark blue there is), Moyou London White knight, Essie Apres-chic, with images from QA58. The stamping was super easy and images are so crisp!
