Parokeets Challenge: It’s a baby girl!Parokeets Izziv: Punčka je!

Not so long ago we added new member to Parokeets team. Her hand are still tiny, but her dad tells me that her nails are already as long as her mothers. :cute: In short, I’m a mom! :wub:

I’m currently pretty emotional, hormones are definitively raging through my system and as expected, my baby girl turned my life upside down. :biggrin: I’m on a leave from blogging for the whole month of September as I dedicated it to my little girl. I did plan to prepare few posts in advance, but the last months of pregnancy were pretty rough, so I’m left with bunch of unfinished posts.  :roll: If time permits, I’ll post at least few of the shorter posts.

But I still wanted to celebrate the birth of my precious little girl with all of our fantastic readers, so I decided to host a challenge. And this time you have my blessing to use as girly colors as possible. :biggrin:
Theme is as title says –  It’s a baby girl! Manicures, eye/face makeup, outfits …

[box type=”shadow” ]

  1. Send us your photo of “It’s a baby girl!” themed manicure, makeup or outfit by the end of 31.10.2013. You can send one photo or 2, but voting will be held for the specific person. You can also include shorter accompanying text. Example: one photo of makeup and one of outfit.
  2. Photo size must be 600 x 800 or 800 x 600 pixels. If you don’t know how to resize to exact number, HERE are the instructions.
  3. Photos must have evident authorship, so your analog signature (your user name) should look something like THIS (click) at least on one photo. If you wish for non-analog signature photo to be published, please specify that in your email.
  4. Send your photo to our email address blogparokeets.com. Subject should contain your nickname and name of the challenge.
  5. If you have your own blog, forum, site (non commercial only) and would like to have a link included with your photo, please specify so in your email.
  6. Photos may not contain any URL addressees, only your analog nickname is allowed.
  7. All photos will be framed with Parokeets frame (”watermarked”).
  8. Part of the votes will come from our readers, and other from proud mom and dad. :angel:

[/box]

If I explain once again about analog signature – it is mandatory but you can send us photo with analog signature and one without it if you wish to see non-analog photo published. Some of you want photos with analog signature published as it is added security, while others find it ugly and don’t wish to see it on published photos.

I apologizes to everybody for unanswered emails, messages … I felt really bad when I saw that all the inboxes were crammed. I’ll do my best to answer to everybody. :rose:

Of course little something for winner is in order. This time winner will get:

  • Illamaqua lipstick in shade of her choice (it has to be available in Slovenia)
  • Kiko Blooming eyeshadow palette – Tender Corals
  • Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 113 nail polish

Our little family can hardly wait to see what will you come up with. :happy:

UPDATE: Challenge was canceled as nobody decided to join it. :unsure:

Pred kratkim se nam je pridružila nova Parokeetka. Rokice ima sicer še čisto majhne, vendar njen oče pravi, da ima že tako dolge nohte kot mami. :cute: Če povzamem, postala sem mamica. :wub:

Trenutno sem zelo čustvena, hormoni delajo na polno in kot se spodobi, je novorojenka postavila moje življenje na glavo. :biggrin: Vzela sem si cel september pavze od bloganja in ga posvečam samo princeski. Nameravala sem sicer vnaprej pripraviti vsaj eden post za vsak teden, vendar so bili zadnji meseci nosečnosti zelo naporni in mi ni uspelo dokončati septembrskega kompleta (posledično imam kup nedokončanih postov :roll: ). Če bo kaj časa, bom objavila vsaj swatche s krajšimi posti, ostali pa se bodo zvrstili oktobra.

Ker pa sem želela deliti in praznovati rojstvo moje miške z vami, je padla odločitev o izzivu. Naj bo za spremembo blog obarvan v punčkastih odtenkih – tokrat z mojim blagoslovom. :biggrin:
Rdeča nit oz. moto, ki naj vas vodi je – Punčka je! Manikure, naličen obraz/oči, outfiti … vse pride v poštev.

[box type=”shadow” ]

  1. Pošljite fotografijo “Punčka je!” manikure, make-upa ali outfita do 31.10.2013. Glasovalo se bo za osebo (za obe fotografiji skupaj), vendar lahko vsak pošlje do 2 fotografiji, ki bosta objavljeni (dodatno sta lahko še fotografiji z analognim podpisom, če ne želite, da objavim fotografije z analognim podpisom). Recimo eno manikure in drugo naličenega očesa/obraza ali outfit. Zraven lahko priložite krajši tekst.
  2. Fotografije naj bodo velikosti 800 x 600 oz. 600 x 800 pixlov. Prispevek o tem, kako pomanjšati fotografije na želeno velikost, si lahko preberete TUKAJ.
  3. Fotografije morajo biti vaše avtorsko delo, zato naj bo vsaj na eni fotografiji posameznega looka/manikure vaš podpis tudi v TAKŠNI obliki. Če ne želite, da se ta objavi, nam poleg nje pošljite še fotografijo za objavo in to pripišite.
  4. Fotografije pošljite po elektronski pošti na blogAFNAparokeets.com. Zadeva naj vsebuje vaše ime/vzdevek IN ime izziva.
  5. Če ste lastnik bloga ali kakšne nekomercialne spletne strani in bi želeli, da se objavi v prispevku link, mi to sporočite.
  6. Na fotografije ne dajajte url poti do vaše spletne strani. Na fotografiji je lahko samo vaš “nick” v analogni obliki (v primeru, če želite, da se fotografija s podpisom objavi).
  7. Na vse fotografije bom dodala Parokeets okvir.
  8. Del glasov boste prispevale naše bralke, drugi del pa presrečna mamica in očka. :angel:

[/box]

Če še 1x napišem glede fotografij z analognimi podpisi – so obvezne, a ni potrebno, da se ravno te objavijo. Nekateri želite večjo zaščito in ste za objavo, spet drugim pa so grde in pošljete raje obe, s tem da tiste s podpisom ne objavimo.

Vnaprej se vsem opravičujem za neodgovorjene mejle, zasebna sporočila … Me je kar malo stisnilo, ko sem videla prepolne poštne predale. Upam, da uspem vsem odgovoriti v nekem doglednem času. :rose:

Seveda ne gre brez nagradice za zmagovalko izziva. Tokrat se bo lahko zmagovalka pocrkljala z naslednjimi dobrotami:

  • Illamaqua šminko v odtenku po njeni izbiri (pogoje je samo, da je dostopen pri nas)
  • Kiko Blooming paleto senčil za oči v odtenku Tender Corals
  • Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 113 lakom
Parokeets challenge: It's a baby girl!
Parokeets izziv: Punčka je!

Naša družinica že z veseljem pričakuje vaše krasne fotografije. :happy:

UPDATE: Izziv je preklican, ker se kljub podaljšanju za katerega ste prosili, ni nihče odločil za sodelovanje. :unsure:

Parokeets challenge: My favourite fairytale is … CONCLUSIONParokeets izziv: Moja najljubša pravljica je … ZAKLJUČEK

Celebration of our 3rd birthday is coming to the end. There is only one thing left – announcing the winner of My favourite fairytale is … challenge. And the prize goes to …

CONGRATULATION Ina!

Her inspiration: I decided to enter this challenge with Little red riding hood inspired nails. This has been my favourite fairytale since I can remember. My mother read it to me all the time when I was little. I still like it because it has a little bit of darkness in it, just like this mani. :) Red represents little red riding hood and the black is the darkness of the woods. Everything is finished with white wolf fangs details.

Parokeets Challenge My Favourite Fairytale prize

Big thanks to all of you who voted only once and all of you who answered our challenge. :rose:

In all the years we’re hosting challenges, there never were so many attempts to circumvent the rules. :undecided: As promised, we strictly enforced the “one person-one vote” rule.

Because this challenge turned out to be such a stressful thing, we’ll rethink our position on hosting them. If nothing else, there will be different kind of voting in the future. :think:Praznovanje našega tretjega rojstnega dneva se počasi končuje. Preostalo nam je le še zadnje dejanje – razglasitev zmagovalca izziva Moja najljubša pravljica je …

ČESTITAMO Ina!

Inina inspiracija: Odločila sem se, da sodelujem na izzivu, za inspiracijo pa sem si izbrala Malo rdečo kapico. Je moja najljubša pravljica odkar se spomnim, verjetno tudi zato, ker mi jo je mama vedno brala pred spanjem. Pravljica mi je še vedno všeč, ker ima v sebi malo temačnosti, tako kot moja manikura :) Rdeča barva predstavlja Malo rdečo kapico, črna pa temačnost gozda. Vse skupaj je zaključeno z belimi detajli volkovih zob.

Najlepša hvala vsem, ki ste le 1x glasovali ter vsem, ki ste se odzvali našemu izzivu. :rose:

V vseh letih odkar potekajo na našem blogu izzivi, ni bilo še ne nikoli toliko poizkusov obiti pravila. :undecided: Kot smo napovedale, smo strogo upoštevale pravila in dovolile le en glas na osebo.

Ker se je tokratni izziv prelevil v izredno stresno zadevo, moramo temeljito premisliti, če bomo še kdaj organizirale kaj podobnega. V vsakem primeru pa bomo spremenili način glasovanja … če nas zamika organizirati kaj podobnega. :think:

Parokeets Challenge My Favourite Fairytale prize

All the ladies did fantastic job. Just look at all the awesome manicures and make-up. :drop:


MATEJA – My favorite fairytale is Tangled. When I look at this sweet girl with golden hair and lilac dress I got inspired to do this manicure.
I wanted to do something I can wear normally. And because I’m not good at drawing I decided to do stamping instead. I used Catrice Lucky in lilac and Barry M Gold foil.

Zlatolaska - Mateja
Tangled - Mateja

NANIII – This is my interpretation of the classic Rapunzel story it involves gold nail polish with gold glitter and a single gray nail that represents the tower. The gold represents Rapunzel’s hair. The eye make up fits the ring. Just so not everything would look so Grimm there is a sliver of gold in the eyeshadow that represents hope for the rescue of the princess.

Rapunzel - Naniii

IVANA – My favorite fairytale and one of the first animated movies I ever saw was Aladdin. Besides the magical, intriguing and entertaining synopsis, love story between Aladdin, young thief, and Jasmine, princess and Sultan’s daughter stayed in my memory throughout the years. Also, Jasmine became one of my favorite Disney Princesses because of her natural beauty (especially long beautiful dark hair and big eyes), independency and expressed pursuit for happiness and fight against laws and stifle life. So normally I tried to recreate Jasmine’s look. I used natural brown eyeshadows, added big winged eyeliner and naturally contoured and highlighted the face. Hope you enjoy the pics as much as I did creating the makeup look.

MAJA – My favourite fairytale from childhood is a story written by Slovenian poet Kajetan Kovič, named Pajacek in punčka. I always remember it with joy, because it was the first book I read and it inspired me to read more fairytales and also many less entertaining books. But more than the story itself I love illustrations by Jelka Reichman…which inspired me for this manicure. That’s it, thanks for your attention.

MARIJANA – My favorite Fairy Tale is Bambi. Many people doesn’t consider it as fairy tale, but I do. I love Bambi because it’s a story of friendship, love, and family. And I think those three things are most important in life.

URŠKA – Zvezdica Zaspanka (Sleepy Star) is my favorite fairytale, precisely because it is so similar to me. When I was younger I also like to sleep a lot, as well as I like to do now I also like how this fairytale teaches children responsibility.

Zvezdica Zaspanka - Urska
Sleepy Star - Urska

ANJA – I loved fairytales already as a little child. I remember how I listened to tapes, watched TV and read books for hours. I liked them all but my favourite by far was The Little Mermaid. I knew the cartoon by heart. Mermaids were (and they still are!) one of the most fascinating thing to me. As my inspiration I chose their tail – at first sight it looks somehow plain, but on the right light its magic reaches out.

Little Mermaid - Anja

ANKA – I was not sure which fairytale story to choose, because when I was little I liked reading and listening to the tape of “Zvezdica zaspanka” (The little sleepy star”, with which I still have lot in common – I love sleeping and I have blonde hair).
In the end I decided for the story I loved the most – Snow White. Whit the red paint I wanted to present her bright red lips and the love that she felt for the animals. I made the pictures with Konad templates (especially M83) and a golden Barry M Gold Foil lacquer. The red color is a Manhattans nail lacquer.

Vse, ki so sprejele izziv, so opravile čudovito nalogo. Samo poglejte si te krasne manikure in make-upe. :drop:


MATEJA – Moja najljubša pravljica je Zlatolaska. In ko pogledam to ljubko deklico z zlatimi lasmi in lila oblekico sem si zamislila naslednjo manikuro.
Želela sem ustvariti nekaj kar se lahko normalno “nosi”. In ker nisem ravno zelo dobra v risanju sem se odločila za konadiranje. Uporabila sem laka Catrice Lucky in lilac ter Barry M Gold foil.

MAJA – Moja najljubša pravljica iz otroštva je zgodba Kajetana Koviča Pajacek in punčka (lol, šele zdaj opazim da sem si naslov napačno zapomnila), lepe spomine nanjo imam ker je bila to moja prva prebrana knjiga in me je navdušila za nadaljnje branje pravljic pa tudi malo manj zabavnih čtiv. Bolj od zgodbe so mi všeč le illustracije Jelke Reichman, kar je tudi bilo inspiracija za to manikuro. To je to, hvala za pozornost,

URŠKA – Zvezdica Zaspanka je moja najljubša pravljica prav zato, ker mi je tako podobna. Ko sem bila mlajša sem tudi sama rada spala, kar mi sicer tudi sedaj ni tuje Všeč mi je tudi kako ta pravljica uči otroke odgovornosti.

Zvezdica Zaspanka - Urska
Sleepy Star - Urska

ANJA – Že kot otrok sem oboževala pravljice. Spominjam se, kako sem ure in ure poslušala kasete, gledala televizijo in brala. Vse so mi bile všeč, ampak moja naj naj najljubša je bila definitivno Mala morska deklica. Risanko sem znala na pamet. Morske deklice so bile (in še vedno so!) zame nekaj najbolj očarljivega. Kot inspiracijo sem torej izbrala njihov rep – na prvi pogled izgleda preprost, šele na pravi svetlobi pride na plan njegova čarobnost.

Little Mermaid - Anja
Little Mermaid - Anja

ANKA – Na koncu pa sem se odločila za uprizoritev moje res najljubše pravljice- Sneguljčice. Z rdečo barvo laka sem hotela uprizoriti njene živo rdeče ustnice in ljubezen, ki jo je čutila do živali. Slike sem naredila s konad šablonami (predvsem m83) in zlatim Barry M Gold foil lakom. Rdeč lak pa je Manhattnov.

Pink Challenge: Day 7 by MaestraPink Challenge: 7. dan – Maestra

For my last pink manicure I wanted to create something that I would actually like and wear. That means that there isn’t a lot of pink involved. :biggrin: Finally here is my seventh pink manicure.

Pink Challenge: Day 7  Essie - Knockout Pout by Maestra
Pink Challenge: Day 7 Essie - Knockout Pout by Maestra
Pink Challenge: Day 7  Essie - Knockout Pout by Maestra
Pink Challenge: Day 7 Essie - Knockout Pout by Maestra

This was actually my second attempt. Yesterday I created something that I didn’t like at all and I wasn’t in the mood to do another pink manicure. So I postponed my seventh pink manicure until today, which was a good idea, because today’s manicure is way better than yesterday’s.

Products I used:

  • Essie – Knockout Pink
  • H&M – Duo Nail Polish (Golden Nails)
  • Alessandro – Be My Angel
  • CND – Limelight
  • Konad IP m13
  • XL plate D

How do you like my last pink manicure?

To round up the Pink Challenge, here are all my pink manicure. Which one is your favourite?

If you were wondering what is this Pink Challenge. Here are the rules:

  • for entire week you have to publish manicures with same polish;
  • you can layer, stamp over it, draw nail art … but base polish must still be visible in some way (so no layering black over it :silly: ).

And here are the links to the lovely ladies that are participating in the pink challenge:
Caroline from Good Lack, Nail!
Gejba from Parokeets blog
Ulmiel from Did someone say nail polish?
Rebecca from Rebecca Likes Nails
Leslie from Polish Art Addiction
Inge from Polish Sis
Sidrah from Beauteous blog
Sarah from Lucky Lacquers

Za zadnjo pink manikuro sem želela ustvariti nekaj, kar mi bo dejansko všeč in kar bi dejansko z veseljem nosila. Seveda to pomeni, da takšna manikura vsebuje le pikico roza barve. :biggrin: Končno mi je le uspelo in tukaj je moja zadnja pink manikura.

Pink Challenge: Day 7  Essie - Knockout Pout by Maestra
Pink Challenge: Day 7 Essie - Knockout Pout by Maestra
Pink Challenge: Day 7  Essie - Knockout Pout by Maestra
Pink Challenge: Day 7 Essie - Knockout Pout by Maestra

To je bil dejansko moj drugi poskus. Včeraj sem ustvarila neko zadevo, ki mi sploh ni bila všeč, nisem pa bila v stanju ustvariti še eno roza manikuro. Tako sem zadevo preložila na danes in izkazalo se je za pametno odločitev, saj je današnja manikura veliko boljša od včerajšnje.

Izdelki, ki sem jih uporabila:

  • Essie – Knockout Pink
  • H&M – Duo Nail Polish (Golden Nails)
  • Alessandro – Be My Angel
  • CND – Limelight
  • Konad IP m13
  • XL plate D

Kako vam je všeč moja zadnja roza manikura?

Da zaključim tale “Pink Challenge”, za konec prilagam še vse roza manikure tega tedna. Katera je vaš favorit?

Če vas slučajno zanima, kaj sploh je ta Pink Challenge. To so pravila:

  • ves teden objavljanje fotografij manikure z izbranim lakom;
  • čez izbrani lak se sme slojiti, konadirati, risati po njem … ne sme se ga prekriti na tak način, da ne bi bil več viden (npr. slojenje črne čez lak je prepovedano :silly: ).

Pink Challenge: Day 7 by GejbaPink Challenge: manikura št. 07 by Gejba

I wanted to do water marble for my last manicure. And even-though I virtually had no free time today, I did one … not one of my wisest choices. :silly:

In all honesty I can not remember if I ever did water marble manicure before. I vaguely remember dabbling once, but that was it. Can’t say it’s hard thing to do per se, but none of the gray, white and turquoise polishes wanted to spread nicely. So I guess picking out the right polish is the hardest part … besides deciding which part of the design to put my nail in. :biggrin:

In the end I stumbled upon Magnetic holographic polishes which kind of worked, so I used those. Since I couldn’t do the design I wanted, I played around and tried out majority of my Magnetic holo polishes … but not all on the all the fingers.

Essence Love This City - pink challenge day 07 water marble by GejbaEssence Love This City served as a base and Magnetic Radiant Red, Shimmering Titanium, Spectacular Stone, Shimmering Silver as water-marbling polishes.

This challenge definitively reminded me why I don’t enter more of them … serious lack of time. :sigh:

Bye, bye pink challenge – it’s been fun and exhausting at the same time. :wave:

In čeprav danes praktično nisem skoraj nič časa za Pink Challenge, sem jo naredila … ne ravno ena izmed mojih bolj razsodnih odločitev. :silly:

Po pravici povedano se ne spomnim, če se že kdaj uporabila to tehniko. Skozi meglo vidim neke patetične poizkuse, ki pa očitno niso bili vredni, da bi se jih zapomnila. Ne morem ravno reči, da gre za težaven postopek, vendar pa sem jaz osebno imela velike težave pri iskanju primernih odtenkov. Želela sem uporabiti belo, sivo in turkizno barvo, a nisem našla lakov, ki bi se lepo “razlili”.

Na koncu sem bolj kot ne po nesreči ugotovila, da se z Magnetic laki celo da narediti nekaj približno uporabnega. Potem se pa nisem mogla odločiti v kateri del vzorca naj pomočim noht. :biggrin:

Če že nisem mogla narediti takega vzorca kot sem si ga zamislila, sem izkoristila priložnost za učenje nove tehnike. :silly:

Me je pa tale izziv spomnil zakaj se jim večkrat ne pridružim … zaradi kroničnega pomanjkanja časa.  :sigh:

Pa, pa pink challenge – bilo je luštno, a naporno. :wave:

Pink Challenge: Day 6 by GejbaPink Challenge: manikura št. 06 by Gejba

For Day 6 of Pink Challenge I used technique that I’ve been neglecting for years … “scotch tape” manicure. I never became fan of this technique as I’m pretty clumsy so I need lots and lots of time to make it look pretty. :blush:

If I was doing scotch tape mani, then I was determined to go all the way and do in with contrasting colors … greens. My problem was that I don’t like yellow greens and those are the ones that should look the best with this manicure. Now I have to get at least few of those or I’ll be nervous until they’re mine. :biggrin:

I always start with 2 rules when doing scotch tape manicures – plan the sequence and stick to it + use polishes with very good opacity. But I’m really hopeless so I have to start experimenting and then redo part of the mani when experiments fail. And as I didn’t have the colors I needed I broke rule no. 2 too. :roll:

For this manicure I used: Essence Love This City, Manhattan Fresh-Excited, Kiko 348, scissors and adhesive tape. Meet my scotch mani …

But my fingers were itching so I just had to stamp puzzle image from XL A image plate + Essence Stamp Me! Black over scotch tape mani. :angel:

Which one do you prefer – with or without konadicure ? :cute:

Tehnika se mi ni nikoli priljubila predvsem zaradi tega, ker sem zelo štorasta in posledično potrebujem ogromno časa, da je manikura spodobno narejena. :blush:

In če sem se že lotila scotch tape manikure, sem se odločila da grem do konca in uporabim kontrastne barve. Problem je nastal, ker bi potrebovala rumeno-zelene odtenke … ki pa jih ne maram in posledično nimam v zbirki. Zdaj moram pod nujno nabaviti nekaj takšnih odtenkov, če ne …  :biggrin:

Vedno se trudim držati dveh pravil pri scotch tape manikurah – drži se načrtovanega sosledja barv in uporabi zelo prekrivne lake. Verjetno si lahko mislite, da me je temna stran spet premamila in sem začela eksperimentirati … in potem seveda morala ponoviti vajo po prvotnem planu. Zelo prekrivnega svetlo zelenega laka pa tudi nisem imela.  :roll:

Uporabila sem: Essence Love This City, Mahattan Fresh-Excited, Kiko 348, škarje in lepilni trak. Spoznajte mojo “scotch manikuro” …

Saj bi jo pustila tako kot je, ampak so me prsti preveč srbeli, tako da sem jo okrasila še s “puzzle” vzorcem z XL A šablone + Essence Stamp Me! Black. :angel:
