Kiss me on my tulips...

Hey everyone!

Today has been suuuuch a beautiful day! Truly like a springday! Wonderful:)
I was doing a nail tutorial for OPI and it was inspired by their spring collection Holland.
Here are my nails... guess the theme;)

Yeah.. soo... tulips :) I really like the name of the color that has the name as my title...
"Kiss me on my tulips".. how cute isnt that :) So I decided to make a design with tulips:D
Very Holland, very spring:)

So now my best friend is coming here cause we're getting ready, making ourselves "sexy"..haha.. going to a Cabaret:D yeey!! I'm excited :D

Hope you like my tulips ;)

"Nail evening"

Hi dear ladies!

Today I'm coming to you sharing my new nail design for today...
Here's how it came out :)

Tomorrow after work I'm going to a "nail evening"..
Some ladies at my husbands work heard I'm into nails and they where planning on having a girls night.
What better way to spend it then to get beautiful nails;)
So the host asked me to come and do nails on the ones who want to get their nails done:)
I said suuure! that's so nice :) Getting paid for doing nails AND dinner ;) awesome!!
I'll let you guys know how it went tomorrow when I get back from it.

The nails for today was just something.. um.. I felt that I must have some kind of "inspiring" nails myself :)
Yeah well.. :)

Have a wonderful evening my dear ladies!
Talk soon again;)
XOXO Miriam :)

Sooo... my attempt of doing one stroke flowers came out looking like this:

On this set I did half a flower.. and on my thumb I tried the full flower (much harder)

(sorry for the blurryness) and here's the thumb.
When I take a new leap to try out this I always go check out tartofraises1 youtube channel.. she is AWESOME at doing these! Check her out:

and if you're interested in seeing her one stroke flower (much better than mine) here is an awesome one stroke flower design:

It's a beautiful way of doing nails and if and when you can handle it it will be beautiful!;) I believe in you!
Just get out there and PRACTICE!! Do try it out :)
Soo.. that's all for today.. I'll see you tomorrow;)
XOXO Miriam :)

Trying the one stroke flower design..

So yesterday I was trying the one stroke flower design..
Gosh!! It's A LOT harder than I thought... it looks so simple when other people are doing it..
Well.. practice makes perfect (so far just better).. I definitely feel more (not enough yet though) confident in trying it out. But I really like it and will practice as much as I can.. any tips on how to make it a bit easier?
I really need to get a better brush for it though.. were can I buy a good brush to make one stroke acrylic flowers? Tips anyone?
I'm going to US in april.. so if I can't find one before that I will probably look it up when being in the States..

Pics will come up shortly on my attempt of the one stroke flower design.
Now time for a late breakfast watching "Keeping up with the Kardashians" haha.. I love that show!

Take care of yourself! You're all beautiful! Don't forget that;)
Xoxo Miriam
