Melting nails inspired by Minna Parikka!

Hi my lovelies! :)
Yesterday I uploaded a new youtube video (finally!) showing how to create "melting/dripping" nails. I was inspired by the lovely Minna Parikka shoes I bought from a sample sale couple of months ago! :)

^I don't have that high heel but the same style.
Almost perfect color match: OPI's Did it on 'em and Pink Friday, both from OPI's Nicki Minaj collection. I wish  Pink Friday was a tiny bit more peachy! 

What do you guys think? :) Wanna try this out? Let me know!

NOTD: Slapped on some Slapper

Hi my lovely readers! :)

Today I received Slapper from Butter London, from working with their feetcare products launch in Finland (Urban a*). I have wanted Slapper for couple of month now, and I'm just so happy to own it! It's the most gorgeous turquoise color!

So, let's move on to the swatches;

1 coat w/ flash

1 coat w/o flash

2 coats w/ flash

2 coats w/o flash, this picture gives the most accurate view to the color itself.
It brushes on the nail beautifully, and as you can see; super opaque, 1 coat would be enough!  Lasting power is just as good as in other Butter London polishes! I highly recommend this color if you love blue nail polishes!  

if you live in Finland, I recommend if you want to  shop Butter London =)

Countryside calling!

Hi my lovely readers! :)
I was on my friend's cottage with my friends this weekend! We had so much fun! We drove there on Friday night, because my friend got from work at 2.00 So we didn't really get much sleep that night- the drive to the cottage was 3 hours. But it was totally worth it! Finland is such a beautiful country! Even though I live here, I don't always notice it. There was mist/thin fog and the sun went down only for half an hour - then it rose again, and oh I just love the Finnish nature! The only thing scared me, was a HUGE moose eating something in the forest near the road.

We got to the cottage around 5am and we went staright to bed! We were so tired, and woke up on 12.00, then went shopping to the center of the town.  We bought marshmallows that we toasted later  on a campfire one of my friends managed to light up, even though it was windy and cold in the night. We also went to sauna and made a pathetic birch whisk xD I need my grandpa to show me (once again) how to make a proper one... 

 We just had so much fun there! Also watched "Sherlock", as they're finally showing it on YLE... I love Sherlock, it's my favourite tv-show! Ahh, if you  haven't even heard about Sherlock, you better check it out NOW! Ahh Benedict Cumberbatch is my favourite actor in the whole wide world <3

Satu & me :D (in Helsinki waiting for our friend Eevi to come from work)

Hope you had as much fun as I had this past weekend! :)

Remember me? Update on my skin!! Huge improvement!

Once again I am so sorry for not being able to keep up with my blog.  I have had school every day, I had a two week summer holiday and I also have been working on top of school! So I hope you will forgive me <3 I also haven't quit making youtube videos as some of you have asked me. I'll film one soon and upload it next week! =)

So I decided to update you guys with my skin! So I had pretty bad acne that began in February 2011. Before that my skintype was dry. Now it is combination/oily (I am a cosmetologist student btw if you didn't remember).
So from August 2011 to December I had a facial at east twice a week - and I changed all of my skincare products to Collin and Biodroga (which are the professional brands we have on our school). I know my skintype and what products to use on it. I also exfoliate once a week with a small grain scrub, and use a clarifying mask right after that. And of course I wash my face twice a day (I use my Clarisonic after I've taken my makeup off once a day) and use moisturizer.

So here we go with the pics! (taken in June 2011)

And now, today 18th of July 2012!! :) So happy to have better skin again! It's still not perfect since not all of the acne scars have healed. It'll take some time :) 

If you guys want, I can do a skincare routine/advice video, since I know pretty much abot skincare after a year of cosmetologist studies ;)
