Window 18 – 2017

Today I got… 

The ritual of ayurveda balancing shower gel, and almond hand and nail manicure cream. 

So, this is the third (and final, to my knowledge) hotel product, previously I’ve gotten shampoo and a bar soap. I had guessed that there’d be a conditioner, but I was wrong. So now I can try the shampoo. So that will be really interesting. I’m looking forward to trying this shower gel too, the ayurveda scent is my favourite put if the scents I’ve tried. I wish the bed and body mist I got was this scent, I love it as a sleep scent.

The hand cream is great, I haven’t used the almond products for a while, but I used to use them every time I did a manicure. The scent is not overpowering and the cream is light but still moisturises well, also really pleasant as a cuticle cream.

Window 1 – 2017

Hey everyone.

December 1st is here do its time to open the first window of our Christmas calendars. 

As I’ve mentioned I have 2, so I’m going to do this a little differently than I have before.

The green is the Rituals calendar and the purple is The Body Shop. 

Behind window number one we have…

Ritual of Ayurveda hand lotion, and Mango lip butter. 

The ayurveda series of one of few series I’ve tried a few products from, I like the scent and the lotion absorbed fairly well so it didn’t get everywhere.

The mango lip butter is pleasant and tastes a bit sweet. I’ve tried other lip butters from body shop before and it’s just as nice as the others. I prefer the scent of the pink grapefruit one though.

Nails!

Oh, look. I’m back.

I’m on vacation from work now, so I finally have some time over for posting. Thought I’d begin with s nail post.
This is the first time I’ve used nailpolish since September due to my work.

I went with a French manicure, it’s my go to design and what I feel most comfortable in.
This pink hue is darker than I usually use, but I like it.

I’ll try uploading some more post during my vacation.

Depend Gel Polish Nails

I was in town again today and picked up a purple gel polish instead, and decided to try using the kit to make nail extensions. The colour was different from the swatch at the store though. The last picture is the one that best shows the colour. The other ones are taken with a flash.

image

Before I began. This was the length and look of my nails. The first thing I did was glue on the tips.

image

I decided to keep the entire length of these tips since they are around the length I like to keep my nails.

image

You start with using the before/after cleaner to clean the nail do the gel will stick.

image

After that, add one picture of the base gel.

image

image

Cure in the lamp for 30 seconds.
Do 4 fingers and the thumb separately. I prefer finishing the fingers completely and then do the thumb.

image

Add two layers of colour gel, curing for 30 second each. This is after the second layer.

image

Then you add one coat of top gel and cure for 30 seconds again.

image

After that, use the.cleaning solution again to remove the sticky residue and bring out the shine.

image

After that, add cuticle oil. While having gel nails you should do that once a day.
This is the picture that best shows the colour and the result. The other pictures are lighter and shows that little edge from the tip way more than reality.

Remember that this kit is not made for doing extensions so if you do it you’re doing it at your own risk.

I’m having these on now as long as they’ll keep, or until the growing part gets ugly. I might add some gold polish or decorations for valentines though.

New purchases

Today these things entered my home.

image

A depend gel polish kit.
This contains a LED-lamp, before/after cleaning solution, base coat and top coat. And of course instructions. You need to buy remover and colours separately, so…
image

I got french white and french pink pearl as colours and also remover oil.

The results from this is supposed to last for 2-3 weeks, which is why I went with colours to make a french manicure since that always works.

There was 2 different removers, one where you wrap each nail in foil after applying the remover and this oil remover. I felt like the remover oil might be better for the nails and skin.

I’ll try this kit right away. I will take pictures, but I might wait with posting more about this kit until I’ve gotten the hang of it and know how long it’ll hold.
