Let It Snow! Challenge #4: Christmas/Holidays

Week 4 of the Let It Snow! Challenge (:

Polishes used:
*Koh Stunning red!
*Catrice Goldfinger

I chose these two colors because they're my favourites for christmas. I love how the gold goes well with the red. I went with a reverse gradient. That's the reason why the skin around my nails is still a little bit gold ;)
I hope you all had a wonderful christmas!

Let It Snow! Challenge #3: Ugly Christmas Sweater

Week 3 op the Let It Snow! Challenge has already arrived. This post is a little bit later than I wanted it to be, but unfortunately I couldn't help it. I'm trying to finish week 4 in two days, so I won't get far behind. 

Polishes used:
*Koh Stunning Red!
*Catrice Be Aztec
*White acrilic paint

As you probably can see the lines are really not straight. I made this a little bit too fast and wasn't really paying attention on what I was doing. I'm not really satisfied with this one, but I was not in the mood to make a new one. I promise next one will be a lot better! Oh, and of course: Merry Christmas!

Inspiration of the moment: Handgloves/Mittens

Let's be honest with eachother for a second: who survives those cold winter-like days without warm and cozy mittens? I don't, for sure. Since the temperature dropped a few degrees here in the Netherlands, I really like to have my hands covered up in super warm mittens with fun designs so my hands will not fall off because of the really cold weather. Seriously, a few days ago the first snow fell, which is kind of extraordinairy for this time of the year, even for the Netherlands. In the night the temperature is just below zero and in daytime the temperature doesn't really get above five degrees Celsius.

So: mittens! They're available in lots of different colors and designs to match with your outfir everyday. I really like to get inspiration from the internet. I also just like to look at the pictures, they just give me a nice winterfeeling.










Don't you just get excited for winter? I do (:

Let It Snow! Challenge - #1 Snowflakes

Here's the first mani for the 'Let It Snow! Challenge', yay!
Please don't look at the length of my nails, they're really short, I know. I kind of ruined them in school :(
Anyway, here are the polishes I used:
~ Sephora A-ha! Moment
~ Catrice Captain Sparrow's Boat
~ Catrice Goldfinger

I quess I really heve to get some sort of stamp for snowflakes, 'cause I kind of blew it free-handed :) I do like the colors, I just get really excited for Christmas. It actually snowed yesterday, but unfortunately it didn't last very long, 'cause it was raining at the same time.
