Beautiful beach vibes

Lately I’ve been spoiled with some awesome products and I want to share a bit of my favorites with you guys!

The theme is of course: Beach vibes! Because it’s summer and in Denmark, the weather is insanely hot, perfect for a day at the beach.

ESSIE: Gel setter and Treat, love & Color


Through the years, Essie has become this “power brand” regarding nail varnish, and I adore the colors and the long lasting formula that it has, these two (from the left) is a Gel Setter top coat, it not only works as a top coat, but it also tints your varnish in a purple/pink hue, very cute! And the second one is a nail treatment varnish, that keeps your nails strong, it’s from Essie’s “TLC” collection, this color is “Mauve-Tivation” and is a soft purple/pink tone, and I love it, very summery. These two polishes together, lasted without chipping one single bit, a WHOLE week, rather impressive!

ECOOKING: Lip balm with pomegranate


– The danish store called “Matas” has a new collab partner called “Beame.”, and through “Beame.” there’s been a bunch of beauty highlights, that is on sale for that month, one of the June highlights, is the gorgeous Ecooking lip balm that you see on the picture above, and it’s insanely good! It’s all organic, raw and natural ingredients that the woman behind Ecooking is using, and who doesn’t love that?? I have this baby in my work bag, and it’s on my lips most weekdays! The scent of pomegranate that this lip balm has is amazing without being too much – a very natural scent.

HH SIMONSEN: The wet brush


I’ve been a fan of this brush since it first came on the market a billion years ago, it is simply amazing! No tangles, no ruined hair and best of all – such a fantastic design, I repurchase this brush every time I need a new brush, they truly are worth the fuss.

ESSIE: Fairy Tailor


I cant get around being in love with Essie, it’s affordable and the varnish just lasts ages, this time I’ve chosen to highlight this nude varnish – This baby is insanely cute and would go perfect with that natural beach look! You know the “casual minimal makeup” kinda vibe? This is your varnish for that occasion! (Or just for work, as I use it for!) it’s not over the top, just subtle, I like.. Again it lasts about a week, and I am a busy bee, I normally make my varnish chip in about a day or two!

Twinkle, oh yes twinkle!

OPI polish and face care!

167

I have had some amazing days lately, and this weekend have been seriously busy, so I was pretty happy to be able to relax Thursday, before everything kinda happened.

I had a hot relaxing shower, then used a my reg shampoo and conditioner, and after that a hair mask, to strengthen my hair, and protect it, then I used a face scrub, and after the shower, I used a face peel off mask. The hair mask is from a hairdresser in Denmark called STUHR, The scrub and peel I used is from Matas and I simply love them, they really work! Then after the peel off mask, I added a nice soothing and refreshing cream from Dr. Scheller, designed to moisturize and protect against dry skin, this cream is amazing, cause its 100% free of silicons, mineral oils and synthetic coloring agents, and is dermatologically tested! I love that cream, and I have the night cream too, its fantastic, I can highly recommend it!

While I had my face mask from Matas on, that needs to dry for like 20 min, I applied a new nailpolish from OPI, which is amazing! Its called ”The world is not enough” and is such a cute pale pink/silvery glitter, and I seriously LOVE it.. Gosh it is the one polish I would not attend a party without, its adorable!

I nicked some pictures of the face treatment cream etc online, so you guys can see what products I use, and maybe try them out yourself, they really do show results, makes your skin glow and very healthy!

Those two here, are ofc with Danish writing (Very sorry everyone who aren’t Danish!) But basically its a face scrub, and a face mask, that you peel off, and both cleans your skin from dead cells, clogged pores etc. These are pretty cheap, and they just work! I simply love these two babies, their 100% a re-purchase!

My nail polish, is quite amazing, here is some shots that I made, and some I found online!

The polish is called ”The World Is Not Enough” and is a pale pink and silver glittery polish, thats just amazing for a night out with the girls! I love how easy OPI’s polish is the apply, and how fast it tends to dry! Its not a ”shellac” but it truly is a good regular nail polish, and its amazing and worth the money! Right now, in the Matas store, there is a buy two, get three offer, and I bought two (I will share the other new polish with you guys later), and then gave my sister the third one, and she ofc picked it out herself! We just really do love OPI.

The end result of a nice face treatment and some good nail polish just works wonders, and its a huge self-esteem boost! I do this little ritual every week, at least once a week, sometimes twice, and my skin loves me for it! You gotta treat your skin with great care as a woman, you have it your whole life, and throughout your life, you apply a lot of make-up, that dries it out, so care for your skin girls!

Artsy with a rawr!

Going wild, with Shellac

leopardnails

Well, tomorrow I’m going with one of my best friends (Jane), to a party – an 80’s party! Wohoo.. So I have no clue what to wear, but I do know how to wear my polish, so this is what their gonna look like tomorrow, what do you guys think? I love them, and its the first time I ever made leopard spots, so guys you will have to bear with me! But well, a deep pink, and animal prints, thats 80’s for me, and well, they even look pretty fancy in 2013 – So I can live with a bit of 80 style on my nails, thats for sure.

 

Have you guys ever done fashionable nails, or as mine, 80’s nails?

Music and thoughts

A day filled of thoughts

  • Song of the day: Demi Lovato – Skyscraper
  • Newest bought item whilst out shopping: Ecco shoes, black, AWESOME.
  • Newest purchase: Shellac from ebay, Rock Royalty and OMG
– Pictures will be shown below in this post!

I dont know why I choose the song to be skyscraper, but I guess its about living, overcoming and rising for me at the moment. It havent been the best time for me the last few weeks, and this whole month will be hard on me aswell. But I will rise again, I know it, sometimes life just dosent turn out the way you want it to, and it surprises you so completely. I never thought it possible, but I was very surprised, faith turned a bit, and here I am, trying to get a grip. – But I will, I have to. So these past weeks, I have treated myself really nice, trying to forgive, forget and most importantly – to never regret that you tried.

Mostly though I feel lucky. I have everything I ever wanted, and I just need to work a little harder to get every piece of the puzzle to match up.

shellac omg

It’s so me

I love make-up, nail polish and all sorts of lip balm! I keep updated on almost every beauty product on the market, and make sure that I only use the best of the best, cause I have to live with my body for a long time! BUT… It’s not always the most expensive that’s the best out there, so I research a lot. At the moment, I like Wella shampoo/conditioner a lot! It’s not super expensive, and it just works for my hair.

Anything that can make my lips soft, even when fall is upon us, is a best friend of mine, that’s for sure! I hate choppy lips, and I tend to get it a lot during fall and winter season, so I stack up on lip balm and for a few weeks ago, I found a great one! “The Body Shop Foundation” has a lip butter, and it’s amaaazing! I haven’t had any trouble with my lips at all when I have used that lip balm! Its perfect.. And who doesn’t want perfect and soft lips? Hehe.. The Body Shop isn’t the cheapest, but oh well… A girl has to spoil herself every now and then! Besides, it went for a good cause, saving the rainforest and educating people on how to preserve their nature! You can actually support a lot of other causes too, you get a little green coin, and then you decide where to donate it to. Saving the rainforest, an animal cause – all kinds of stuff really! So go get one girls, and support a cause of your own choice!

I also bought some nail polish, and I was going for elegant, sophistication and edgy, cause its mainly for when I’m working at the jewelry store, I want something pretty that matches what I’m selling, so I found two Essie polishes that was exactly what I needed a week ago! “Over the edge” is a metallic black, it has a great little shine feature to it, so it doesn’t go all punk or emo, it’s classy and edgy at the same time! “Recessionista” is a very dark red, almost brown polish that is very classy and delicate, but still so dark that it has an edge to it, so it’s also pretty perfect for the store! I almost bought another one, but finally decided for this, and I don’t regret it, cause its perfect when applied!

I’m thinking about buying some make-up from “Nilens Jord”, a brand I really love, cause they don’t test their products on animals, that I’m pretty willing to support! But again, their fairly expensive, so I choose carefully when I buy something by them.

I posted some pic’s here of the lip butter and the nail polishes, so you guys can see it properly, the one where I hold the lip butter, I’m wearing the “Recessionista” polish, so you guys can see it better, it’s hard to imagine that color to be honest! XD

Oh yes I forgot!

I must have forgotten?

Well I must admit that I forgot to mention a few of my favorite products that I also just recently bought. Again, two polishes from Essie, Not just a pretty face and Naked truth, I got to be very fond of both! Naked truth is as the title describes, naked like.. I love this polish, cause its so feminine and simple, and very elegant. This polish you can wear with every type of clothes in your closet and it just still looks amazing! I can highly recommend it if you love the classic type of polish. Not just a pretty is a more girly polish, wich is more warm than the ”Naked truth” polish. Its a great summer polish, and a perfect day polish. I can best describe this polish as similar to Naked truth, but with more ”pink teint” in it, wich makes your nails look natural with one layer, and more warm! With two layers, their only a little sheer, and their in this amazing shade of pink. Then I bought the Mari Nila hair powder, wich is priceless, its this little tiny white bottle with actual powder in, that makes your thin hair look much thicker and easier to style! Its priceless and I use it every time I go out. Then I got a new product called ”Look at me” its a styling spray, that gives the hair body and volume, with a medium hold. You just need to spray it in your damp hair, and blow dry it, or in dry hair, for extra shine. Last but not least, I bought a mascara from Max Factor, wich makes the lashes very thick. I have very long lashes, and only a little thick, so I usually use the mascara for thick lashes. This one is really great, and I used it before. I like to mix and match my mascaras, use two at the same time, and so on, it just makes the results alot better. I will make another blog post about the ”Look at me” hair styling product, and tell you what I think!

With lots of love

Spoiling myself today

Today I splurged..

This is what I got for myself, and I cant wait to get it!

This time I bought three different kinds of Essie nail polish to my small but growing collection, no 1. is called Carnival no 2. is Pure pearlfection. no 3 is Waltz. Essies nailpolish is kinda awesome, and I love their many colors that you can choose between. Soon I will have so many colors, that it fits every piece of clothing in my walk-in! I cant wait to try on ”Waltz”, its really pretty looking!

Why do I shop at Nicehair.dk and not other places?

Nicehair.dk is just my favorite website, its a cheap site, for beauty products in all shapes and sizes, for hair, nails, face and I can keep going! Its an amazing site to go crazy on, with the whole grand shopping spree, and I think the last few months, I bought something from that site! I am a big ”abuser” of hair products, cause my hair is very fine and thin, and their products just works, and they have a smart commenting system, so if you try out a product, it will most likely get a neat comment below, telling us how it worked for the ones before! I am stoked about this site, it is amazing. Im a multimediadesigner (in progress) myself, and this site is easy to use, easy to get your payments through, and you can choose several forms of payments! It is fantastic, due to the many choises they give you! They always have special offers, their always cheap, their shipping is fast, and for some reason, they always send me a bag of gummy-bear treats with all the products that I bought, YUM! I adore this site, and can only recommend it to everyone else who is searching for affordable products.

With lots of love!
