ABC Challenge: Q is for Queens Day Nails

Hi everyone,

This will be my very first post not using a polish that has a name that starts with the letter of the challenge. Instead, I want to do something special for the letter Q, because it was Queens Day in the Netherlands last tuesday! This will be the last Queens day for a while, because the Queen of the Netherlands, Queen Beatrix abdicated and her son, now King Willem-Alexander was coronated on that day. It was a century ago since we've had a King! His wife, now Queen Maxima is originally from Argentina, she's such a lovely woman. They also have three beautiful daughters. I'll post a picture of them after the cut! For this Queens Day, I created a mani combining the Dutch and Argentina flag.

ABC Challenge: P is for Pretty & Polished - Punk'd up Betty

Hey everyone!

To all the dutch folks.. HAPPY QUEENS DAY! I apoligize for the short post, blogger doesnt want to upload more than this picture for some reason :( but it will be a long one tomorrow! I'll try to get more pictures up when blogger wants to work with me again. I used two coats of Essie - Bikini so Teeny as a base and one coat of Pretty & Polished - Punk'd up Betty. Loooove this polish <3 The polish consists black and pink matte hex glitters and smaller matte black glitters. There are also some big silver hex glitters but I only managed to get one of them out so they are very rare. Well.. I'm off celebrating again! :D

Update 05/05/2013: Apparently, Firefox was the cause of the problems. I've always had Firefox and never had problems. When I was writing a new blog post, it still didn't want to upload my pictures. I downloaded Google Chrome and it works now. So if you have the same problem, try downloading another browser! The other pictures are uploaded now, you can find them after the cut below :)

ABC Challenge: O is for OPI - On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Hey everyone,

 It's been some time ago since I've posted something on this blog! I'm trying to balance blogging with my new fulltime job. I'll try to post more often from now on. :) For the letter O, I chose OPI - On Her Majestys Secret Service. This polish is from the James Bond collection. I think I've already used two other polishes from this collection in the ABC Challenge. I just really love almost all the polishes of that collection. I've used three coats in the pictures below.

ABC Challenge: N is for Nails Inc. - Noho

Hey everyone

Yaay it's another ABC Challenge Day. Today's featured letter is the letter N. I used Nails Inc. - Noho for this challenge. I've got this polish when I purchased the Nails Inc. Bling it on Rebel set. The set was really expensive but the look that you create with this set, using leather effect polish, skulls, studs and swarovski crystals is gorgeous. It's like they've made this set just for me so this mani was actually my birthday mani! I used two coats in the pictures below and used all the different studs that were available in the set.

Polish Days: Seven Deadly Sins

Hey everyone,

It's time for another Polish Days! This challenge is hosted by the lovely Polly Polish. This months theme is the Seven Deadly Sins. The sins are wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. I think every person in the world is guilty for at least one of the Sins. I knew mine immediately; Greed, Sloth and Gluttony. I think my biggest deadly sin is Sloth. So I decided to use the colors of those sins for today;s mani, which are yellow (Greed), blue (Sloth) and pink (Gluttony).

However, this looked waaay to cute and spring-y. So I've added OPI - Black Spotted to make it more dark and gloomy.

Much better!

ABC Challenge: M is for Morning, Moneypenny

Hey everyone,

It's a very special day for me today. I turned 24 today! :D Unfortunately, there's not much time to celebrate. I still have to finish my final presentation and do some grocery shopping for cakes that I'm going to make for guests this weekend. I'll make some pictures of the things I've made. This weeks ABC Challenge, hosted by Kimbers Lacquer Korner, features the letter M. I chose another OPI Polish from the OPI Skyfall collection. Morning Moneypenny is a dark magenta/berry magnetic polish that also contains scatter holo glitter. Seriously, this polish is amazing. Pictures don't do it justice! I used three coats in the pictures below together with the magnet which was provided together with this polish.

ABC Challenge: L is for Live and Let die

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the delay.. AGAIN! I finished my internship last week. :D It was a really stressfull week finishing my report and I still have to do a final presentation but after that, I will get my Bachelor of Applied Science degree! It sounds so awesome lol. I dont want to do a masters but a Master of Science degree sounds even more awesome XD But no, I've been studying Biotechnology/Medical Research since I was 16, so that was 8 years ago. I think I'm done with school and I just want to work and earn some money for a bigger home and MOAR polishes! :D

Another reason why I'm so late is because I originally used a China Glaze polish for the L challenge. However, I'm choosing not to use their polishes on my blog until they apologize to some fellow bloggers. If you want to know more, read the full story here. I don't care if I'm a small blogger and no one will notice this, I'm not doing it because of that. I'm just disgusted with how CG treats bloggers that made them even more popular. I really value other bloggers opinions and if it wasn't for them, my stash wouldn't be so huge. So instead, I used two coats of OPI - Live and Let Die for this challenge.
