Nail Polish Favorites 2013

Hi everyone,

long time no read. I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas time! I came back from the US in the evening of the 22nd, so I was still quite jetlagged during our family celebrations, but now it looks like I've finally adapted to German time again. Btw, let me know of you would like to see some impressions from my trip to New Orleans and wintery New York City! 
Today is the last day of the year. Wowza, where did 2013 go? It flew by way to fast for my liking, but I am kinda glad to leave the old year behind and start over again in 2014. May it bring lots of good moments (and maybe a new job ;) ). So today it is time to share with you my favorite manicures of this past year. I listed them in no particular order. Enjoy!

Laissez les bons temps rouler

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to say goodbye for a few days. I will be leaving for a scientific meeting in New Orleans and some Christmas shopping in NYC on Friday morning. I have been looking forward to this trip for weeks now. We have a busy schedule for the meeting, but I hope I can find some time to take a tour around the city and eat some gumbo and jambalaya :D

On December 18th I am going to New York City and will return to Germany on the 22nd. So I'll probably be jet-lagged on Christmas... Additionally, this trip keeps me from creating more Christmas manicures for you, but to be honest, these are sacrifices that I am willing to make ;) I will try my very best to share some impressions on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with you, so make sure you are follwing me there!

Wishing you all a nice evening, talk again soon!

[Festive Nails] Zoya Pixie Dust ~ Chyna


I hope you're all having a cozy second advent! I baked some cookies and gingerbread men to give to friends and family on Christmas. I love baking, if only the kitchen wasn't a complete mess afterwards that takes forever to clean, lol.
December is the month of festive manicures, but I've been very busy and short on time those past days. Zoya Pixie Dust in Chyna is the perfect quick Holiday manicure.

[Festive Nails] Christmas Candy manicure

Hello everyone!

It is that time of the year again! Last weekend I pulled out the Christmas decorations, bought new candles and tried to make everything nice and cozy. We won't set up a tree this year, as we'll be away most of the Holidays visiting family and friends, so I had to compensate for the lack of a tree with other home decor ;) Of course my nails had to join the gingerbread man, gnomes and poinsettias. Ever since I got my MoYou order, I was itching to try these plates. So I picked a pattern from Princess plate 12, a white base color and my favorite red polish and stamped away. Let me warn you, I am taking baby steps at stamping and these nails are for from being perfect. Still I love the look of them so I thought I might as well share them with you.

[Dupe Alert] Manhattan ~ Visions of me Sugar Effect Nail Polish

Hi there,

I hope you all had a nice weekend, lots of food on Thanksgiving and a relaxing first advent! Did you go shopping on Black Friday and get some good deals?
When I was recently sent the newest Manhattan limited edition called Visions Of Me Sugar Effect Nail Polish, I couldn't help but think of OPI Liquid Sand and Kiko Sugar Mat polishes (I already compared these here). The shades looked so familiar to me. So I dug through my stash and did a little comparison for you. The collection consists of three shades with a glittery textured finish.
