Monday Blues: Saturday Night Fever

Hello my lovelies! Christmas is over but I'm still on holiday so it's all good. The past week has been really great and relaxing. Plus there's another one just like it coming so I couldn't be happier. After the traditional red manicure that I wore for Christmas, I've gotten back to my true love, blue nail polish. I decided to do something festive for New Year's using a glitter that I got as a birthday gift from the lovely Andrea.

Monday Blues: Holo Snowflakes

Hello my lovelies! It's the last Monday before Christmas and I'm on holiday. Whatever you are celebrating this week, I wish you all to relax and be with your loved ones. Just the thought that today is the first day of two weeks of relaxation makes me happy. I'm doing a bit of cleaning and organizing today, so everything is ready for the holidays. Of course I had to take a break to write this post for you. It's no surprise that I created another snow themed manicure, but this time we've got holo glitter too!

Monday Blues: Frozen

Hello my lovelies! After a very relaxing weekend, it's time to face the cold and get to work. It's my last week of work before a long awaited two week holiday. I've been dreaming about that for months! So I really can't wait for this week to be over. To get my mind off work, I will show you some blue nails that remind me of winter. There are two types of manicures I like to do this time of year, Christmassy ones with red and green and blue ones that remind me of snow and frost. This particular one is just that.

Monday Blues: First Snow

Hello my lovelies! I feel like it's been ages since I last wrote a post. My birthday week went by so fast! I had a wonderful few days with friends and presents so I couldn't be more grateful. The only issue is that I'm kinda tired on this Monday. Luckily, I survived work and can now relax for a bit. But first let me show you the manicure I've been wearing for the past few days. It was inspired by the snow we got a week ago. It only lasted for a day and totally got us by surprise, but it was still beautiful.

Monday Blues: A-england Spirit of the Moors

Hello my lovelies! It's a great Monday in my neck of the woods because it's a national holiday. On top of that, tomorrow is my birthday and it's also a holiday. I've been waiting for this 4 day weekend for quite some time now because I was in desperate need of a holiday. So of course I have to show you what my nails have been sporting during this weekend. It's a polish that has been gifted to me by my amazing friend Kinga, along with two other A-england beauties. It's one of the latest additions to the A-england family and looks like this.

Monday Blues: Polka Dot Blurple

Hello my lovelies! It's a sunny Monday in my neck of the woods and that's great because the weekend was really rainy. The sun is definitely helping with my mood and making me forget that a new work week is upon us. Another thing that makes me feel better is my manicure. There's glitter and lovely colors so I can't wait to show it to you. Here we go!

Monday Blues: Autumn Roses

Hello my lovelies! After a pretty rough week, I can finally say that today was a good day. My cold is gone and I had a relaxing weekend, so I was ready for another week. My Monday wasn't that bad either, so there are no complaints from me. I have a very autumn appropriate manicure on my nails and can't wait to show it to you. When I think of autumn, I immediately think of dark colors and duochrome polish. I was in the mood for these things and this is what came out.

Monday, November 9, 2015

Monday Blues: Flowery Gradient

Hello my lovelies! I don't know about you but I'm not happy at all that it's Monday. I haven't done much this weekend and I slept a lot, yet I still feel tired. On top of all that I feel a cold coming and work is absolutely crazy. So nails are the last thing on my mind right now. Luckily I created a manicure that I'm very happy about a couple of days ago. It's still on my nails and it's going strong. Take a look!

Monday Blues: Elegant Triangles

Hello my lovelies! Another Monday, another blue manicure. It's been a really great weekend and a good week. It was busy, but nothing I can't handle. I've been wearing last week's Monday Blues manicure for over a week, which is a real record for me. I finally removed it yesterday and had to shorten my nails because they were in a really bad shape. Short nails look great with a more neutral manicure, so I decided to use a nude polish that my great friend Kinga gave me as a gift. Here's the final look.

Monday Blues: Denim Tips

Hello my lovelies! It's the last Monday of October and I must say that this month went by in a second but it was one of the best ones ever. I had a lot of fun and also worked a lot, so I think I deserved all the good things that happened to me. I didn't have a lot of time for blogging but I still like to check in every Monday and show you some blue nails. The ones I'm gonna show you today are simple yet blingy. I hope you enjoy them!

Monday Blues: Autumn Tartan

Hello my lovelies! Another Monday is here and it's a rainy one for me. Autumn has really set the mood, which means I've been sporting fall colors for the whole of last week. I was pretty productive in terms of manicures, so hopefully I get to post them on the blog soon. The first one I'm showing you is also the most recent one, because I created it yesterday and I'm sporting it on my nails right now. It's inspired by fall colors and the tartan patterns that are very popular this season.

Monday Blues: Baroque Triangles

Hello my lovelies! Another week has passed and I haven't blogged as much as I'd like to. I've been busy and then tired and then I finally managed to get some rest. Of course I did my nails a couple of times but didn't get around to posting anything. Monday Blues is a must though, so I still manage to do at least a post every week. This week's blue manicure is a little weird but the polish is a beautiful one so I think you'll like it anyway. Here we go!

Monday, October 5, 2015

Monday Blues: Elegant Gradient

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday and it's raining cats and dogs outside. After a beautiful and sunny weekend, today wasn't such a great day. But at least the workday is over and I can relax for a bit. The manicure I'm showing you today is something I created on a whim. I wanted something blue and decided to do a gradient, but didn't have any idea of the outcome. I just went with it and here's the final result!

Kiko 255

Hello my lovelies! It's Saturday and I'm having one of the best weeks in years. The weekend will be nothing short of amazing, I'm sure of it. Just a quick post today to show you one of the polishes I've picked up on my trip to Amsterdam. It's an old Kiko color that I didn't even know about until I saw it in the shop and it had to come home with me. It's simple but beautiful in all its simplicity. These are also the last pics I took with my old camera before I got the new one. Let's take a look!

Monday Blues: Blue Tapestry

Hello my lovelies! Another weekend went by in a second and here we are on a Monday evening. It's been rainy and cold all day over here so the weather is nothing but depressing. I can't help but be in a good mood though today. I feel like this is gonna be a really great autumn! And nails will be a big part of it, of course. Starting with today's manicure, one that seems perfect for fall.

Saturday, September 26, 2015

Royal Purple Gradient

Hello my lovelies! It's the end of September and it's officially autumn. I don't know how it is where you live but it's starting to feel like autumn over here. Even though it's still warm, it's been raining a lot in the last days. Soon we're gonna need a coat and then a heavier one and then before we'll know it it's gonna snow. So naturally I got inspired by fall colors to create today's manicure. It's an older one, so the pictures are taken with my old camera but I think they turned out ok so here we go.

Monday, September 21, 2015

Monday Blues: Persian Blue

Hello my lovelies! I don't know about you but I'm really glad I survived this awful Monday. It's raining and I have a headache, but at least I finished work and can relax for a bit. Another week has passed and I haven't blogged at all since last Monday. But I do have good news: I got lots of new nail art goodies that I've already started to play with, plus a brand new camera. The photos in today's post are taken with said camera, even though I'm still figuring out how to use it. So I apologize if they seem a bit off. The manicure was inspired by my trip to Amsterdam and I also used one of the polishes I got from there. Let's take a look!

Monday Blues: Cerulean Chevrons

Hello my lovelies! Whoa, what a week! I've been working like a maniac and then I tried to get some rest during the weekend, so nails and blogging have been on the back burner. I didn't even celebrate the fact that my blog turned 4 last week. Unfortunately I didn't have time to create a special manicure for the occasion. But Monday Blues is always a great occasion to celebrate and every blue manicure is something special for me. So I'll just show you today's nails because they are awesome!

Monday Blues: Beyond the Moon

Hello my lovelies! I don't know about you but for me this is the first day of autumn. The holidays are over so I'm back at work, plus it suddenly got rather chilly. I'm not sure how I feel about all this but I know that summer can't go on forever. So enough with the whining and let's get to today's nails. I'm very excited to show you this manicure because I'm so proud of how it came out. Here we go!

Monday, August 31, 2015

Monday Blues: Blue Stars

Hello my lovelies! I can't believe it's the last Monday of August, which means summer is coming to an end. It's been a great one though and I'm trying to stay positive about the arrival of fall. As I'm typing this it's still very hot where I live and I'm leaving for a trip to the seaside tomorrow, so fall can wait a little longer. But first let me show you the manicure I wore on my previous trip, a very summery one indeed.

Picture Polish Jasmine

Hello my lovelies! I'm back from my trip but not for long, because I'm gonna be away again next week. In the meantime I have a couple of manicures to show you. One of them is the next Monday Blues and the other one is a beautiful Picture Polish that was kindly lent to me by a friend. I've known Traci from The TraceFace Philes for a long time and I enjoy her Instagram profile because it always has dog pictures. She created this polish to remember Jasmine, her sweet Rhodesian Ridgeback who passed away a few years ago. I think she totally did her justice because this polish is gorgeous!

Monday Blues: Summer Sun

Hello my lovelies! As I've mentioned in last week's post, I'm currently enjoying the beautiful city that is Amsterdam. I couldn't skip this week's Monday Blues though, as I haven't done it in over 3 years since I started. I'm also very excited to show you this manicure because I absolutely love it. It reminds me of summer and even though it's the end of August, I hope you are still enjoying the sun wherever you are.

a-england Crown of Thistles

Hello my lovelies! I am currently on vacation but I scheduled this post so you don't get too bored while I'm gone. The nail polish I'm showing you today comes from a brand that is very close to my heart. a-england makes the most beautiful polishes and they all have a story behind them. I have quite a few of them in my collection, which says a lot because they are not very easy to get hold of where I live. I do manage to get my hands on one of them every once in a while though and I knew Crown of Thistles had to be mine from the first time I saw it. So here it is!

Monday Blues: Delft Pottery

Hello my lovelies! After a few weeks of unbearably high temperatures it's finally raining today. I'm happy that we get to cool off a bit but I'm not happy because it feels like fall is coming. Hopefully it's not the case because there's still plenty of summer to enjoy. I'm leaving town on Thursday and I can't wait. I will be visiting Amsterdam so that's what inspired me to create today's nails. I tried to paint the pattern of Delft pottery and here's the result.

Elephant Walk

Hello my lovelies! How is your summer so far? I feel like the 15th of August is the most summery day of all. A lot of people are on vacation and even those that aren't can enjoy themselves because it's Saturday. To celebrate all that I have a very summery manicure for you. I haven't worn too many neons this summer because I can't wear them to work. But now that I'm on vacation myself, I have indulged in some crazy manicures and pedicures. Here's the first one!

Monday, August 10, 2015

Monday Blues: Blue Fame

Hello my lovelies! Can you believe it's Monday again? I sure can't! Especially because I'm on vacation and the days are just flying by. The only thing different about today is the fact that I have to write this post for you. The title is not that original and I apologize for the lack of inspiration. I am in love with these nails though and hopefully you will like them too. Here we go!

Picture Polish Imperial

Hello my lovelies! Sorry I haven't kept my promise of posting more this week. My nails are still in a less than perfect shape and I haven't been doing them that often. They are improving and starting to grow though, so I'm feeling optimist about them. Today's post is about a polish that has been in my collection for a few months. I didn't like the pictures from when I first wore it so I didn't post them back then. After a few weeks I wore it again and I wasn't that happy with those pictures either. That's when I realized that this polish is too amazing to be photographed and decided to just post the photos I have so hopefully you can get an idea of its awesomeness. So here we go!

Monday Blues: China Glaze Boho Blues

Hello my lovelies! It's the first Monday in August and I'm on vacation! I slept in and spent part of my morning in bed, but then I rushed to the computer to write this post for you. I really want to blog more this month because I will finally have the time to do nails. Unfortunately my nails are not in the best shape. I reduced them to complete nubs two weeks ago and they didn't grow as much as I expected. Due to the fact that I had nothing prepared in advance for today, you will have to accept them as short as they are. Hope you don't mind!

Monday Blues: Pacific Flowers

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday and I've had a crazy day at work but I'm not mad at all because it's the last week before vacation. August is coming so I'm finally in a proper summer mood. To celebrate that, I have a very summery manicure for you. My nails are still short and hopefully they will grow enough until next week because I haven't prepared anything for that Monday yet. I did prepare something for today so let's take a look!

Saturday, July 25, 2015

Lilac Lace

Hello my lovelies! It's a lazy Saturday in my neck of the woods but I couldn't say no to writing a post for you. My nails are extremely short at the moment and it's frustrating because I'm in the mood to do some nail art but I don't have a canvas for it. I'm trying to grow out my nails and it's not going very well. Luckily, there are some manicures in my vault, hence today's post. It's about some nail art I did a couple of weeks ago.

Monday, July 20, 2015

Monday Blues: Steel Blue Arabesque

Hello my lovelies! How was your weekend? Today's post is coming later than usual because I had to get some rest after I got home from work today. I had an amazing weekend because I went to see the Robbie Williams concert in Bucharest. It was fun, but I'm still a bit tired from the road. Nothing that a little more sleep can't solve. In other news, my nails are doing really bad these days so I had to shorten them even more. I did prepare some manicures in advance though, so there's nothing to worry about. The one I'm showing you today features some very cool shades of blue.

Monday Blues: Perfect S33

Hello my lovelies! I have survived another Monday at work. I apologize for my absence but I've been working like crazy last week and even part of the weekend, so blogging was the last thing on my mind. My nails are in terrible shape so I had to shorten them to nubs. But since I didn't have anything prepared for today, I have to show you my current manicure. Hope you won't mind that my nails are so short. At least it's glitter I'm showing you and glitter looks better on short nails.

Monday Blues: Blue Chevrons

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday again! I started the day in a good mood and it turned out to be a great day because of that. It's very important to not let stress take over and always stay positive. I really hope that you had a good start of the week too. In any case, I have some blue nails to cheer you up today. They contain chevrons, which is always great.

Color Club Beyond

Hello my lovelies! I feel like it's been ages since I've written a post on this blog. That is mostly because last Monday's post was written in advance. I've had a wonderful weekend and a busy week and now it's time to finally get some rest. I'm feeling particularly lazy today but I decided to write a quick post to show you another beauty from the Color Club Halo Hues collection. This is the last of these holo polishes that I needed to post about so here we go.

Monday Blues: Blue Flowers

Hello my lovelies! I am writing this post on a Thursday evening because I will be away for the whole weekend and will probably be too tired to write it on Monday. I can't say anything about the weekend that has passed because for me it's still in the future. I'm sure it's gonna be awesome though. Anyway, the manicure I'm showing you today is one that I'm really proud of. Take a look!

Monday, June 22, 2015

Monday Blues: Giraffe Heaven

Hello my lovelies! It's a quiet Monday in my neck of the woods. The weekend was relaxing and work wasn't too bad today, so I'm full of energy. Today's blue manicure has a very interesting story. Could you believe that there's a connection between Dublin and giraffes? Me neither. Yet for me these two will always be connected. And here's why.

Saturday, June 20, 2015

Layla Ceramic Effect 103

Hello my lovelies! Another workweek is over and I'm tired as usual. Luckily, it's gonna be a quiet weekend for me so I will have time to get some rest. I haven't done my nails very often lately but I still have a few older manicures to show you. This particular one was done with a polish that isn't mine but I got to borrow and try out. It's perfect for spring, but I think it's great for summer as well.

Monday Blues: Holo Gradient

Hello my lovelies! I'm gonna be honest with you today and tell you that I'm not in a great mood. Work was crazy and I can't wait to get some rest. On top of all that, it's raining cats and dogs outside, which doesn't really cheer me up. In contrast with my terrible mood, there's a really fun and sparkly manicure on the blog today. It's perfect for the summer!

Ruby Wing Gypsy

Hello my lovelies! It's Saturday and it's extremely hot outside so I'll probably spend the day lazying around the house. A day of leisure is nice every once in awhile, don't you think? I already did my nails last night and can't wait to show you the result on Monday but first I have a color changing polish to show you today. This is the first time I try a color changing polish that uses light instead of temperature to change color. I will be honest and say that I don't find it quite as fun as the other type. But let's take a look first.

Monday Blues: Royal Plum

Hello my lovelies! Is it just me or are summer Mondays even worse than regular ones? It's incredibly hot outside, which means we need to hide inside all day. At least my workday is over so I can relax and show you today's nails. This manicure is something I do often: a blue base with gold or silver stamping. You could say it's a staple look for me. For this one I used one of my new plates from the Born Pretty Store.

Color Club Eternal Beauty

Hello my lovelies! It's the weekend, the weather is absolutely gorgeous and I'm away from home to attend a friend's wedding. I couldn't leave you without a post though, so here's a quick one to show you an amazing polish. I know that I'm the last person on earth that is posting about the Color Club Halo Hues but I just can't get enough of them and showing you is a must. Just look at this one!

Monday Blues: Distressed Tribal

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday, it's the first day of June and I don't have to go to work. On top of all that, the weather is absolutely gorgeous. What more can I ask for? I can't wait to go out in the sunshine but first I have a blue manicure to show you. The lovely people from the Born Pretty Store have sent some new plates my way so I had to put them to work immediately. This is the first nail art I created with my new plates.

Astor Elegant Amethyst

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! As I promised yesterday, I am back with another post in an attempt to get rid of all the pictures I gathered in my blog folder. These are from almost two months ago so it was high time for me to post them. It's been a long time since I've showed you a textured polish on the blog. I must admit that I'm kinda over the trend and I haven't purchased any new ones in a long time, so the ones I post here and there are borrowed ones. I do love the ones I already own and I occasionally wear them or use them for nail art. Today's polish comes from a brand called Astor and was kindly lent to me by a friend.

Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink

Hello my lovelies! It's the weekend and it's gonna be a long one for me because Monday is a holiday in my country. I was dead tired yesterday but after a 10 hour sleep I'm good as new and ready to start my Saturday. But before I take on today's challenges, I thought I would squeeze in a tiny post on the blog. It's a simple pink manicure, a color I don't normally post, but one that goes great with my mood today.

Monday Blues: Barry M Eat My Dust

Hello my lovelies! It's been ages since I've written a post and I feel kinda rusty. I should apologize for my absence from the blog in the last weeks but I've been away most of the time and really busy when I was in town. The next weeks aren't looking good either, but I'll try to squeeze some blogging in between. As I mentioned before, I was away for over a week and the destination of my journey was Dublin. So I had the chance to buy a few polishes from brands that aren't normally accessible to me. Of course the first one was Barry M, which is a big favorite of mine. Everybody loves their Gelly polishes but I've always had issues with drying time so when they brought out the Speedy Quick Dry polishes I couldn't wait to try them out. I got a couple and the first one I'm showing you today is a beautiful blue.

Monday Blues: Pastel Dots

Hello my lovelies! As you're reading this I am away on a small vacation and hopefully having lots of fun. Of course I needed to schedule a post so I wouldn't miss the Monday Blues of this week. The manicure I'm showing you today was inspired entirely by spring. I really wanted to have some pastel colors on my nails so I created these on a whim. They didn't turn out exactly like I pictured them in my head and my camera died on me after I took the first picture. I had to use my old camera, hence the weird looking pictures. Oh well.

Monday Blues: Picture Polish Fool's Gold

Hello my lovelies! Believe it or not, it's time for another Monday Blues post. I've been away this weekend, hence the lack of posts in the last week. I knew May was gonna be a busy month for me and time is just flying by. One thing that I wouldn't miss for the world is my weekly blue post, especially since today I have a fabulous polish to show you. This one is a true winner!

Monday Blues: Metallic Spring

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday and it's a whole new month so let's be excited. My month of May is gonna be awesome because I have a couple of trips coming up and I can't wait. Let's hope that the weather will be just right. Spring and summer are my favorite seasons so now that spring is finally here I need to get out of the house as much as I can. Bright blue nails are an absolute must for this season. The ones I'm showing you today are easy to create and very elegant.

Flower Wallpaper

Hello my lovelies! I don't know about you, but I'm so glad it's the weekend. This week has been pretty stressful for me. The fact that it's raining and freezing outside is bringing me down but I'm still glad that I don't have to go to work. Instead I'm gonna show you a manicure from a couple of weeks ago that turned out to be pretty controversial. Here it is!

Monday Blues: Color Club Over the Moon

Hello my lovelies! The weekend went by too fast but at least I got lots and lots of sleep. I really needed some rest because this week will be a hard one for me. I'm trying to stay positive since it's gonna be a 4-day week because Friday is a holiday. To help me hang in there in the following days I have a stunning polish on my nails. I don't even know how to call this one because all the superlatives aren't enough for it. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
