French manicure

I love doing different nails designs, sadly I’m almost only comfortable in a french manicure. With maybe some small art on in silver or something.

Here’s just a normal french manicure. My fingers are shining because of my nail oil.

I used;
O.P.I Natural Nail Base Coat
O.P.I Sweet Memories
O.P.I Don’t Touch My Tutu
O.P.I Top Coat
O.P.I Drip Dry

I was thinking of doing a silver line between the pink and white, but desided not to. I only have a Depend silver polish, and i really don’t like that Nail polish brand.

Todays make up look.

Today I made a simple look with brown shadows and pink lips.

    

I used a light beige and a brown shadow on the eyes and finished with a brown liner and black mascara.
The lipstick I’m wearing is Smashbox Electric Pink. It’s a matte pretty strong color, so I just slightly dabbed it on my lips.

***

I also got an appointment at a hairdresser, I’m going there at 11 on monday. I’m going to cut and color, the tips will still be a little darker, but I wanted to avoid bleaching. Sonce I’m coloring at the hairdresser I don’t know if I can try the healing oil treatment in the color, I might bring it and ask, but I don’t know. Feels like it’s kind of rude.

Hairdresser

I need to do something with my hair, I haven’t cut it in about a year and a half and the last time I coloures is a couple of months ago. So I went to a hairdresser today. Or well, it’s actually sort of a hairdressing school but anyway…

The first thing i heard when I got in was “Come back later, I’m busy!” The entire room was empty except this person, who was sitting down and reading a magazine. I said I just had a couple of questions ad that it would be quick. “Very well then, but hurry up.”
I asked about prices and some other things, then she just said that ;
“Well, I can get you an appointment, but we’re going to have to cut all your colored hair of.”
That would leave about 1-2 cm of my hair, and I know that my hair isn’t in that bad shape. (sadly I don’t currently have a picture to show you.)
I might have let this slide IF it was one of the students who had said this. But the one who gave me this attitude and told me to cut all my hair of was one of the teachers at that place. So I just left and now I’m looking for a new hairdresser.
You do not treat a customer like that!

So tomorrow my mom is taking me to a woman that she’s been to that apparantly is very good.

I don’t know if I will cut, cut and color or just cut and bleach and then do the coloring at home, I want a lighter hue than I have now so I’m going to have to bleach anyway And right know my hair has three different colors, dark-lighter brown-my natural color. And I don’t like it.

A few tips.

Hi!

I haven’t been feeling so well today. Autumn is here and with it cold and rain, which I hate. i alwas get depressed this tome of the year. So I haven’t had the energy to do any real post. So I thought I’d give you a few tips instead.

1. Don’t Use MakeUp every day.
While many people have it in their routine to put on makeup everyday, it’s good to give your skin a time to breathe sometimes. And take a look inside yourself. Do you really need makeup to go to the store? And if you absolutely must have makeup everyday,settle for just mascara and a lipgloss or lipsick sometimes.

2. Drink a lot of water.
Water helps mousturize your skin from within and gives you a more radiant complesion.
It helps cleanse/flush your body and improves circualation.
It reduces dark cirkles and increases you energy.

Think About
That you should drink at least 1 litre/day.
You can add some lemon or cucumber to make it taste fresh.
If you feel thirsty, drink water instead of coke or other sweet drinks.

3. Clean yor make up brushes
Brushes collects all the dirt on your skin while you put on your make up, cleaning your brushes helps preventing that you put all that old dirt back.

4. Don’t wash your hair every day
A lot of people do this out of habit of showering every morning. Not because their hair is dirty.
Washing your hair dries it out and makes the scalp produce more oils. So if you wash your hair everyday, it gets oily faster. Only wash your hair when it feels oily. If your hair takes 3-4 days to get oily, wash it every 3-4:th day. Pur it up in a bun or just give it a cold water rinse the other showers.

5. Sleep
Sleep 7-8 hours each night. It prevents dark cirkles and makes you look healthier. To little sleep makes you look tired and gloomy.

Well That was what I had today.

Pedicure

Hi!

Today I decided to give myself a small manicure and pedicure today.
So here’s what I did and some pictures. I usually do a larger routine than this. But I’m out of some of my products and just wanted to pamper myself without to much work.

Here are some pictures of my nails on both hands and feet before I painted them.

    

    

The nails on my feet are weird. I have no nails what so ever on my pinky-toes and the nails on all the toes except the great toe/hallux/big toe/Ihavenoideawhatthistoeiscalledinenglish tend to fall of very easily. Thats why they look weird.

Here are the products/tools that I used.

    

So first I just soaked my feet for about 5 minutes then I smoothed the skin ith a file, a pumicestone and the blue thing which is a foot smoother from body shop. The jar contains a scrub.

Then I painted first my toes and then my fingers with;
1 Coat of O.P.I Natural Nail Base Coat
2 Coats of MNY #353
1 Coat O.P.I Top Coat
Finished of with O.P.I Drip Dry Drops

The Result

    

    

When I paint my fingernails I’m most comfortable in a French Manicure or a copper polish I really like. But red works to, and if it’s for something special I can paint them to mach what I’m wearing.

However I never paint my toenails, this is the second time I’ve ever done that.
Usually I don’t have so much nail to polish. But I also have a slight back problem which makes fixing my feet and toes something like a living hell for me. crouching my back like that isn’t good at all for me.
But sometimes I do it anyway.
