Oops I did it again... HAUL TIME!

Hi my lovely readers! :)
I have done a little bit of shopping lately, so I decided to share some of my finds with you all!

Recently I've bought a lot of jewelry from places like Gina Tricot, Linex & Seppälä, becuase they've had great sales! 

These two necklaces I bought from Gina Tricot for 1,50€/piece

I absolutely love this necklace! It's kind of "four in one" necklace.
This piece of jewelry has a nice tribal vibe going on.

I had been eyeing these cross earrings for a while and how amazing was it to get them for 1,50 only! :)

You know the collar trend... Well, I am into it! xD I bought the rosegold & silver collar from Gina tricot for 1,50€/piece, and the golden one was from Seppälä for like two euros. 

These two awesome bracelets were four euros from Seppälä. 

Continuing with the tribal trend, got this cute little bracelet, again 1,50€ from Gina Tricot

From a brush/makeup tool- company called Duroy, I got some brushes for my facial exams.

Lovely tools for beauty therapists!

Have you bought anything lately? Share your purchases with me in the comment section! :)

NEW LAYOUT! & Nails of the days!

Hi my lovely readers! I just updated the layout of my blog! What do you think? Do you have any constructive crtiticism? I'm thinking of turning around the header, when I have time :)

And lets celebrate the new layout by posting some nails of the days!

China Glaze's For Audrey - two coats & OPI's Crown me already splashed in the tips

I remember when I first tried out Cina Glaze's For Audrey. It was super raved about in youtube/the whole nail polish world. I was SO excited to use it, but I was disappointed in the end. Now the story is different! I absolutely adore it! Maybe it's because I'm into all pastels right now, or maybe it's because I adore Tiffany & co, and Audrey Hepburn more nowadays ;)

Essie's Butler please - two coats & Sally Hansen's Gem Crush: Big money - one coat

I was so pumped to use this new Essie color, but OH GOD I HATE THE FORMULA! It was streaky and it felt like the bottle would have been open for a year or something... I honestly think there might be something wrong with my bottle of polish in particular. But yes, the color is ah-mazing!
Sally Hansen's Big money is a superb glitter polish; actually the whole gem crush line blows my mind! You better check it out if you haven't already done so.

Orly's Cashmere Cardigan - two coats.

I just can't get enough of all shades of purple. Orly's Cahsmere Cardigan was really pretty but chapped off quite easily in two days. Pretty color, nothing special in the formula.

Essie's Lights - two coats & Ciate's Big yellow taxi - two coats

Now I really wanted to try out "the new thing", I actually don't even know what this kind of French manicure is called. I like it anyways, and this color combination was super bright and summery. Both polishes are great with just two coats.

Thanks for reading, have a great day! <3

Nails of the day // OPI Just Spotted the Lizard & New years eve nails

Hi my lovely readers!
I haven't posted a nails of the day post in a long time, so decided to do one now! :)

OPI's Just Spotted the Lizard

Today I'm wearing two coats of OPI's  Just Spotted the Lizard on my nails. This polish came out in the Amazing Spiderman collection and it's said to be a great dupe for Chanel's Peridot.
I really wish the polish had more blue dimension to it, because now it's mainly greenish gold shimmer. But it's lovely anyways! My second time wearing this ever.
My nails are getting too long because of the winter break, I have to cut them down soon :( I just love longer nails and it's such a bummer that a cosmetologist has to have pretty short nails in order to not hurt the client.

I thought I'd also share the nails I wore on New Years eve;

It was supposed to be a silvery-glitter to black -gradient but I ran out of time and it didn't turn out quite what I wanted... But it looked just slightly better in real life ;) To the ring finger I added three rhinestones which I hadn't played with in a long long time! Didn't remember how much fun it was to wear rhinestones! I highly encourage you guys to bring in some glitter and sparkle to your life!

If you're from Finland, check out my newest video on my Finnish channel:

Hope you're having an amazing week!
