Tag thingy

16 Jun

I saw that Also Known As had done this, and it looked like fun, so.. yeah 😛

How many polishes do you have in your stash?
I have no idea… about half a Helmer 😛

Which brand do you own the most of?
China Glaze! It was my first love!

What colors do you own the most of?
blues and purples!

Do you have a color/texture you do not own?
I have only two holos! 😦

What’s the one polish you always pick up to lift your spirits?
Mad as a Hatter from OPI 🙂

What polish do you keep looking at and wondering why you haven’t gotten rid of it yet?
an orange one from H&M and a few neons from the Ink collection from China Glaze that i just can’t get the hang of!

Franken any? or I’m nervous to try it?
I franken! I just don’t do it a lot! I have just started adding pure pigments, so thats fun!

Do you franken for new/original polish ideas or franken for polish you won’t be able to own?
Depends! If i see an amazing franken, and i have the polishes used, i’ll try! But i have also tried to franken Particulaire (mega fail btw)

Go-to Base Coat?
OPI base coat… Not too many options here 😛 We don’t have the huge beauty supplies other countries have

Go-to Top Coat?
OPI top coat or Micro Cell top coat

What’s your sexiest polish?
Hot Pink polish from Depend! I think pink is sexy 😀

Nail Design:
Stamping vs Free Hand?
both! I’m not that great at freehand yet! I have no control over my left hand, so i can’t do a full mani of freehand!

Bling me, baby? or No bling for me, please!

I consider my nails basically nekkid if they don’ t have some kind of design?
nope.. all is good! Now, no polish, thats naked!

My favorite plate/tool/technique?
Full designs! I think it’s so hard to place those tiny ones 😛

What I haven’t tried and want to within the month?
my own glittermix for acrylics.. doing acrylics for Egypt, because i can’t bring my entire polish stash 😛
The one elusive polish you want and can’t seem to get?
Chanel Particulaire (but won’t ever get, because i found out chanel do animal testing!), Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure, China Glaze OMG collection and Nfu-Oh

What was the last nail related thing you bought?
I bought a custom “manicure set” for my sister! Just treatments, files, cuticle pushers and polish

How many nail related hauls have you bought in the last 7 days (on-line/in-person)?
none 😛

If you’ve ever been on a no-buy, how long did it last? Is that what you planned?
I have never intentionally been on one… Sometimes it just happens, mostly because i run out of money 😛

(and one question to grow on) Hobby? Addiction? Compulsion? Passing Fancy? Love?
All! But mostly a compulsion! I can’t stand having the same, unchanged, nailpolish for more than one day at a time! i think my “personal best” is three days 😛

Everyone who wants to do this, knock your socks of 😉


About me

23 Apr

So, I have had this blog now for a while, and although a lot of you came over from my norwegian makeup blog, i feel like i haven’t introduced myself properly (or at all)!

So here goes, My name is Lisa. I am 20 years old, and i live in Norway. I am currently working as an opticians (? person who checks out you eyes and sells you glasses) assistent, but i hope i will be going to school in the fall.. My passion for nailpolish started ages ago, and i always feel naked without it! My focus on proper nailcare and handcare in general however, started just before i started this blog!

In addition to nails, i love makeup, and i probably would love hair too, if mine wasn’t so unruly 😛


This is me, taken on my crappy webcam.. it was the best picture of me (where i look good, not the quality) i could find right now!

So yeah.. What about you, who are you, and how did you find my blog?

New Swatches Coming soon!

30 Mar

Yeah.. as the title says, new swatches will be coming later today 😉


23 Mar

i couldn’t stay away from pink.. i like this one better anyways!! i have plans to get a domain and buy that thingy on wordpress that allows me to design the entire layout myself though! So when that time comes, it will be “nailpolish-party-all-night-long-with-my-own-design-and-domain” LOLS 😛

I’m trying to change things up a bit… i really liked the old design, but i felt the pictures were too small! So we are trying out something new!! All the categories, links and archives are at the bottom now.. what do you think?
