Layering experiment

When I am lazy to take my polish off but want a change, I layer something on top. One of my favourite polishes for layering is China Glaze Watermelon Rind which I put over C-C-Courage. I loved the effect it made...the colors went from purple to teal. Lovely!

Když jsem líná odlakovat starý lak, ale přesto chci nějakou změnu, tak na něj dám vrstvu nějakého jinou. Jedním z mých nejoblíbenějších laků na vrstvení je právě Watermelon Rind, který vám dneska chci ukázat na C-C-Courage. Výsledek byl nádherný...barvy se měnily od fialové po tyrkysovou.

How to Buy a Knit Dress

If you are looking for a unique and one of a kind type of dress to wear for any occasion, check out how a knit dress can benefit you.

Knit dresses have been around for years dating back to the early beginnings of stitchwork and knitting clothing with cottage industries. Such dresses are available in a variety of colors depending on the thread used, and a variety of designs all dependent upon the knitter. If you are in the market for a such dress, but are unsure of where to shop for one, check out both locally with clothing and thrifts stores, as well as the vast marketplace that is the internet.

The first thing you want to do when shopping for anything is to set a budget. Create a limit on how much you can afford to spend on your knit dress, as well as create a base idea of what colors and designs you are looking for. The more variables you have decided upon before you buy, the quicker the buying process. Once you have a budget and basic design settled upon, you can take a look either locally or online to begin the purchasing process.

The best place to shop for a knit dress locally is through large clothing providers. Clothing stores that are stocked with all types of clothes from casual to formal, and from men's to women's, are much higher in likelihood to carry such dresses. Besides a large clothing store, you can check into thrift stores in your local area, as well as a flea market. Knit dresses aren't as common as cotton made shirts and denim jeans, but with a little research and by making a few calls you can find a perfect dress in your local area.

If you are unable to find a knit dress that suits you in your local area, you can always turn to the internet and its vast marketplace. When buying online the first thing you want to do is a basic search in a search engine into sellers of knit dresses. This search will give you a baseline of sellers to choose from. Once you have a list to choose from, you can begin going through their inventory until you find the knit dress suited to your specifications. When buying online, it is important to always check the reliability of the website before you send in any form of payment or personal information.

Overall if you are looking for a unique fashion piece for both casual and formal wear, check out what your local clothing stores, and the internet have to offer in the form of a knit dress.

Playdate Pics! And OPI Over The Taupe

Hi all!

If you're following me on Twitter, you probably know that it was playdate time yesterday! I met up with Michèle from Lacquerized, Karin from Romika's Nails, Michelle from The Lacquer Files and Natasja. We all brought a ton of polishes (though this wasn't nearly everything we own!) and were dazed with the amount of polish on the table. This is what a playdate with five lacquer ladies looks like:

And from a different angle:

Michèle and Karin actually had their polishes in their Helmers, so they are not even all visible in these pics! Woah! Can you imagine us just staring at all the bottles, not knowing which polish to pick?

We all picked a polish to paint our nails with and since this is my nail blog, what would this post be without a pic of our hands and nails?

Clockwise, starting from the top: Michèle - wearing purple H&M; Hello Kitty with Sally Hansen Garnet Lapis, Karin - wearing Milani Hi-Tech, Michelle - wearing Hard Candy Mr Wrong with Hard Candy Breakup on top, Natasja - wearing Orly Cashmere Cardigan and me - wearing OPI Over the Taupe.

I'm wearing OPI Over the Taupe as a NOTD (which I borrowed from Michelle - thanks dearie!! <3 ), but I spiced it up a little with some flowery stickers. I actually have some weird kind of bubbeling in my polish, not regular bubbles but very teeny tiny wobbly parts that look like they lay under the polish. Michèle told me she has the same thing. I have no clue what caused this bubbeling.. Anyway, here are some pics of today's manicure!

OPI Over the Taupe, three coats with one coat of Nubar Diamont and flowery stickers. Over the Taupe is a gorgeous taupe creme. I really like this color! I took advantage of all the bottles on the table and it's no dupe of Eyeko's Taupe Polish, Catrice Lost in Mud or Catrice From Dusk To Dawn. Application was good. The polish was a little watery at first, but it all went well in the end.

A little closeup of my ring finger:

It's just the accent to make the color pop! I really like these stickers. I got them as a freebie with an order at Veelnagels/Veelsieraden, a Dutch etailer.

Dear Michèle, Karin, Michelle and Natasja; I had a great time yesterday and I hope you did too! I'm looking forward to the next playdate (Michèle, hurry up with your date picker! ;) )

Thanks for stopping by!
