New Year’s Eve manicure … in the neutral range

By  | 

Happy New Year!!!

Can’t say I’m the “New Year’s resolutions” kind of person but I decided that 2013 will be my year, but you’re all welcome to share it with me. I would say that it just can’t go lower than 2012, but you know what would happen in that case, right? :biggrin:

I spent New Year’s Eve at home with my darling and bum knee. So no dress up and all that jazz for me. But I did make a manicure … something so not like me. :silly: Few of my friends asked for more of “wearable” manicures. Khm – I wear pretty much all my manicures so I could argue about wearable, but I guess we all know what kind of manicures were they talking about. :angel:

I have very little of nice nude shades in my collection (see – I need new polishes :biggrin: ), so decision was not really tough … especially, since I knew I wanted to try out again moody China Glaze Moonlight. :nails:

Idea was to use milky white base and double stamp it with 2 different gold shades. Weeell – Kiko 247 nail polish was practically invisible so you would need really good eyesight to see it. :silly: In essence this is China Glaze Moonlight with Catrice Goldfinger stamping over it.
To stay in “easy to get” range I used one of the new Essence stamping plates for the all over image.

Frankly – I did not hate this manikure, but then again it did look better in real life. :silly:

I’ll try to be good girl and write few of the post from request list(s) … hopefully this month and not sometime this year. :blush:
If you have any requests, do let me know – I’m currently planing to write few of the most requested posts and one or two of those I wanted to write for a long time now.

    Lepo je videti malo drugačno zimsko manikuro in ker sem trenutno tudi sama v iskanju nude odtenkov je tale celoten izgled fantastičen (si moram Goldfinger še enkrat od sestre izposodit :wink: )

        No tudi to je dobro, pa kakšno gumo zna najbrž tudi zamenjat, a ne? :wink:

    Srečno novo leto, drage moje Parokeetke! :ahug: Gejba, upam, da je koleno že bolje!! In tudi jaz držim pesti, da bo 2013 boljše leto kot 2012. Manikura sicer ni po mojem okusu, vendar verjamem, da je v živo zgledala bolj igriva. In tudi sama sem se v tem letu spoprijateljila s kar nekaj nevtralnimi odtenki, tako da jih imam nasploh zdaj čisto rada. :yes: :wink:

      Hvala, Ulmiel in srečnega in zdravega tudi tebi. :ahug:
      Se počasi cajta, ampak še nisem tam.

      Kateri se ti je najbolj vsedel v srce? Iščem toplejše odtenke, ker so očitno po mojem okusu le bolj hladni, toplih mi pa zeeeelo primanjkuje.

    sretna vam nova, nije puno proslo pa valjda nije veliko zakasnjenje :silly: a manikura, puno bi mi bolje pasala da nema visible nail line, ali takve su te nijanse

      Sretna 2013 i tebi! :happy:
      Iskreno rečeno nisam željela stavljati 3 sloja, pošto je to onda već previše umjetno mojim dragim “natural” prijateljicama. :biggrin:

    Luštna manikura, čeprav ponavadi ne posegam za nude odtenki :blush:

      Hvala, Nuša … kar v imenu vseh Parokeetk. :ahug:

      Jaz se trudim poseči v neznano in neraziskano področje. :haha:

    Baš ti je nežan i diskretan manikir.
    Srećna Nova godina. Nadam se da će ti se koleno brzo oporaviti.

      Srećno 2013 i tebi Vedrana! :happy:
      I ja se nadam, pošto sam već dosadna samoj sebi. :silly:
