NOTD: OPI's It's My Year+ xmas

Hi my loves! :) Long time no posts, I'm so sorry about that! Dx The month of December was super busy with exams, couple of charity  things, my Bday and christmas prepairings, of course.

Here are my nails in the beginning of December :) The color is OPI's It's My Year from the Miss Universum 2011 collection. This collection isn't sold in Finland, I got this from USA when I was there.

 ^ With flash..

&&& Now I added some glitter to the manicure! :)

 And here are some photos from the xmas 2011 I picked up to show you guys :)

^ Yummy food... Carrot caserole = omnomnom!

 Some cookies me and my sister made from chocolate and Dominos.

Our xmas tree  from a funny angle.

My sister and me ;P If you want to check her blog out, it is:

She blogs in Finnish and her posts are so much better than mine.
And she posts frequently xD

And here we have my newest video;

Watch it if you want to know what I got as xmas presents ^__^

NOTD: some Rainbow Connection right here!

Hi my adorable readers! =) I thought I'd share these nails I had a month ago in the Caribbean cruise. I had had this manicure for one day already, without a top coat, so some places might be chipped and the cuticle area is so messy! Sorry about that, I was on vacation!! xD
But yeah, the shade here is OPI's Rainbow Connection from the new Muppet Collection. 16,90€ in Finland  (19 dollars) and 8 dollars in USA! What a steal! I'm so glad I was able to find this polish there so I didn't have to splurge here!
I have two coats of the Rainbow connection, and once coat of Gray's Anatomy from WetnWild under it =)
And the ring is from Guess! I bought it from the ship and it was SO cheap, just 18 dollars! Guess is a high end bran in Finland, that'd propably be at least 80 euros here!

Well, have a happy rest of the week!

The most beautiful brush set!

Hi my lovely readers!
First of all- I'm sorry if this blog post comes off as an advertisement. It is NOT meant to be one, but I sincerely just was so amazed by the beauty of this brush set, that I just had to feature it in my blog! :o

So, what am I talking about? This:

AHH!! Isn't is just so pretty? :))
I absolutely looove this set! It's obviously from Sigma,  and it's from their new, limited edition The Cities collection!  This brown & Gold one is called London. 
This of course has to be the most expensive of the sets xD Why does this always happen to me? Always I fall in love with the things I can't afford. Well, I could ask this for xmas present, but I'm pretty much done with my list, which includes DKNY Goldem Delicious perfume and couple of other things :(
This set runs for 89 dollars, which I could easily see spending on a brush set, if I din't have as many brushes as  I already have (well, like 20).
But yeah, just wanted to give you guys heads up, in case you are looking for your first brush set, now it is good time to strike with these limited edition ones- so cute and a perfect gift! =)

These are the other sets featured in this collection:
Paris - New York - Tokyo
(these sets run for only 59 dollars!)

Super cute <3

Sweet dreams by Too Faced palette review!

Hi loves! :)
Today I'll share my opinions on the newest palette from Too Faced, called  Sweet Dreams. 
If you're in a hurry, here's all you need to know: I LOVE IT!!! : D
And if you actually want some details and more info, please keep reading! ;)

Packaging: 9/10 
- I love the packaging SO much! <3 Ahh, this is like perfect packaging! I when I walked into Sephora, I saw this on the Too Faced stand and run straight to there! I'd have given 10 points for the desing, but the material (cardboard) makes the points 9. The edge's of the package get damaged quite easily. But otherwise love it! :D
The price/quality: 10/10
- The actual product price would be 220 dollars, if you bought them all separated. How amazing deal is this? I can no advice you to pass on this one! If you have ever wanted to try out Too Faced Shadowinsurance, Chocolate Soleil Bronzer (matte), or Candellight highlighter, go get the palette, right now. Stop reading this and run to Sephora! xD Or order it online! Seriously, the quality of the eyeshadows is amazing, and you'll also get to try two blushes from Too Faced, and those famous primer, bronzer and highlighter.
This is also great palette for beginners: This has so many things, you only need foundation and mascara (+eyeliner if you don't want to use eyeshadow), and this'd be a good kit for beginners :) 
A variety from neutrals to bolder colors (amazing quality btw) makes this a perfect palette for more experienced makeup addicts as well! 
So, would I recommend this: YES.
Would I buy this again if someone stole mine or something like that: Absolutely! :)

Pictures from my vacation! =)

Hi loves! :) I'm back! It has been a week since my vacation in Miami ended. It was so much fun! 10 days of paradise, 7 of those spent on a Caribbean Cruise!
We were on the Carnival Liberty ship, and it was amazing! :)
The ship  was so pretty, the shows were magical, the food delicious and the staff very friendly! I also loved the decoration in the ship, and it was very clean, btw.
So the only thing that bothered me, was that there could have been more shops! ;P
Still, I totally spent more than enough money -__-''
I promise I'll make a haul video soon, I have been SO busy with school, since I have missed a week of it... And I also got a new camera! It is amazing, can't wait to film youtube videos again! It has been such a long break! D;
The places I saw:
Cozumel, Mexico (the best one, in my opinion)
Ocho Rios, Jamaica (very nice place)
and Grand Turk, Turk and Caicos, Bahama islands (I wish I had Essie's turqoise and caicos nail polish ;) paradise beach, but I stepped on a sea shell so I coudn't sprnd too much time there xD)

So I absolutely enjoyed my vacation. I could do it all again! And I'll def go back to Carnival Liberty! =)

Duhh, cold Finland ;o And getting even colder and colder all the time... Expecting the first snow very soon! +8°C

Nails of the day ;) + Bornprettystore's blogs giveaway!

Hi dolls! Since Finland isn't the best country for OPI to success, because their nail polishes cost a fortune (16 euros 10 cents /around 18 dollars), I am still able to find lovely nail polishes from OPI's past collections. This particular nail polish is from the Burlesque collection, and is called Glow Up Already! (I absolutely love that name as I always do with OPI...) :)
It has been layered on top of a F21 mint green nail polish. In the ring finger there's also one coat of the Sparkle-icious which I introduced to you couple of blo posts ago also in my ring finger xD
Burlesque has to be one of my favourite collections from OPI. I have almost all of the glitter polishes and couple of the other polishes. I absolutely love OPI's glitters. <3
And I have been all over every single glitter nail polish I have been able to find xD I've propably bought 10 glitter polishes in past two weeks...
And now I'll go and pack something for my USA/Caribbean cruise trip =)) See ya in two weeks (well the trip lasts 10 days but you know the jet lag!)

By the way, as most of my blog followers love beauty and nail care, I'd highly suggest you to check out BornPrettyStore's giveaway! :) I participated myself, here's a link for you to enter for a chance to win some cute prizes! :)

Love you all <3

Nails of the day! :) ft. Orly's new nail polish

Hi my lovely readers!
I was visiting the Finnish Cosmetology  Organisation's Trade Show in Helsinki couple of days ago, and there were some Orly polishes on sale for 3 euros only! I totally grabbed some ;P But this one costed 6,50€, since this is from the newest  Spread your Wings collection! This polish is called Fowl Play and it is SO pretty! This is 3 coats, but 2 would have done it as well.
And guess what? I even got to see the collection from Orly, that is not out yet! I adored ALL the colors, I was like "can I buy these yet" and the staff was like "we're sorry but no, this isn't out yet" and I was like wow, I feel special (of course everyone else in that trade show got to see the polishes too, I was just one of hundreds of people! xD).
So yeah, everybody keep your eyes ope for the soon coming Orly collection, you'll love it!!

Nails of the day... I was bored! xD

Lol, I was feeling artistic and I really wanted to draw some doodles. But I couldn't bother to go get me some paper and pencils, so instead I just grabbed some nail polishes and drew all over my nails with nail polish xD
Nail polish Used under the white nail art; OPI's Totally Forth Worth It.

Btw sorry about the water drop on my thumb :'D I didn't notice it at all while taking the picture!

Nails of the day + What I'm doing

Hey my loooooovely readers! <3 I'm SO sorry for not posting anything for the longest time! I've started my cosmetologist studies in a Finnish Cosmetology school. I absolutely love it there, I've learned so much new and interesting things about skincare. manicure and pedicure! I've been super busy with school, because we have one exam every week! This coming week we have an exam where we have to know every single bone and muscle in human's hand both in Finnish and in Latin! :) Then, next week we'll have chemistry exam, that I think will be ok for me since I actually like chemistry!

But yeah, this is also a post about my nails!  As you can propably see from the picture above, I have had to cut them! :( Now they're so short, I don't really like short nails on me,  they make my fingers look chubby, if that's possible xD  Well, you can also see my current nail art I just created couple of days ago. Super simple!

And here's my newest video;
