Seasons Greetings

The tree is decorated, the cookies are made, the gifts are wrapped; now all that’s left is to wish you a Merry Christmas. So, Merry Christmas dear friends. Thank you for supporting this little blog over this past year. I feel blessed to getting to know so many lovely people via a hobby as simple as nail polish. Happy holidays, here's to an amazing new year filled with all good things!
It has been an honor and a valuable experience for me. I wish you a happy Hanukkah and a new year filled with all good things. - See more at:

24 days of Christmas - Twinkling Lights

twinkling lights nail art

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! I hope all the Christmas preparations didn't stress you out and you can now enjoy a few peaceful days with your loved ones.
Shortly before Christmas I decided to go back to my beloved pointy nail shape. I did not take down any lenght, but almonds always look shorter than squares of the same length. Now these babies need to grow to my comfort length so I can file them even pointier, as I did this last summer.

Anyways, on to the nail design for today. I recently ordered a lot of nail art glitter from a German website called CreativeArts, which arrived today. I loved all those sparkly concoctions so much that I had to try them instantly in a nail design.

For this holiday season I attempted some more free hand nail art. ILNP Spiced Eggnog from their current winter collection inspired me to paint these nails.

24 days of Christmas - Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Ruby Shimmers

christmas nail polish

Happy hump day! Today I have for you an impulse buy from the drugstore. If you have been following my blog for a while you might have heard me talk about the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel system and how I am not a huge fan of the range. Some polishes go on patchy, the top coat adds ridges to the color and it does not last longer than a regular manicure. However, when I saw the limited edition sets in my local drugstore I had one weak moment (or two, but that is a different story) and somehow Ruby Shimmers went into my shopping cart.

24 days of Christmas - Ugly Christmas Sweater Nails

Happy Monday, I hope you had a great start into this new week. Today I am finally back with another 24 days of Christmas post. I missed a few days because I was out of town for work and a family celebration. Instead of squeezing in a post in between every day life duties I prefer to not pressure myself and blog when I am free. So today I have for you my ugly Christmas sweater nails which I intended to post for the #wnac2015 on Instagram.

24 Days of Christmas - Dotticure

easy nail art design
Good evening peeps! If you follow me on Snapchat you might have seen that I went on a little shopping spree with my boyfriend today. We went to Dortmund for the Christmas market with the world's largest Christmas tree where we enjoyed some yummy food and mulled wine. We also went shopping for some Christmas presents for family and friends - and maybe a few things for myself ;o) There might be lots of nail polish involved, so check out my snapchat zabeenuh if you want to see what I got.

24 days of Christmas - Snowflakes

christmas nail art

After yesterday's disastrous attempt at Christmas nail decals I went back to a technique I felt more comfortable with - stamping. Snowflakes are a "must do" desing for a Christmas themed nail art challenge. For this manicure I went with a classic cool blue and white combination.

24 days of Christmas - Decal Disaster

I was hesitant about posting these, but then I decided why not. Even for an experienced - if I may say so - nail painter things go wrong from time to time. Horribly wrong.

24 days of Christmas - The perfect red for the Holidays

I told you Pinot Noir would be making another appearance in my personal 24 days of Christmas challenge and who would have thought it would be so soon. I just had to share this perfection in a bottle on its own as soon as possible.

24 days of Christmas

24 days of christmas nail art challenge

Hello hello, welcome December, my favorite month of the year. Last weekend I put up my Christmas decorations and candles and I am looking forward to cozy weekends with a cup of tea and a good book. Also I cannot wait to play with nail polish and come up with some Holiday nail designs. I admit I have been neglecting my nails and this blog since I started my new job in September. To get back on the nail art train I thought I'd do my own "24 days of Christmas" challenge this year. I have done such a Holiday nail art challange waaaay back in 2011. This time I won't follow certain prompts but simply come up with (hopefully) 24 Christmas-y nail designs myself - so stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed I can keep this promise. If you'd love to see a certain design/polish/color combo let me know, I have not prescheduled anything.
