It's Christmas time!!!

Hello everyone ^_^/

I will start this post by wishing everyone a merry merry Christmas! Best wishes for you and your families!
I hope you are all enjoying this day with your loved ones ^_^

And here is my Christmas mani for this year. As it is snowing I wanted it to be snow themed.

I used some of the China Glaze Let it Snow collection as I found it to be appropriate.

My base was Blue Year's Eve. Then on some nails I sponged Icicle and on some I used Snow Globe. Finally I used some snow themed nail decals and my mani was ready ^_^

Enjoy the rest of the day everyone and make sure you have lots of fun <3

November in pictures

Hello everyone ^_^/

the final days of the exhibition are approaching fast and my schedule is as hectic as ever but here is a post I have been meaning to make this week (and never found the time). It is another photoblog, for the month of November.

The weather was still lovely so I spent a lot of time playing with B-chan in the garden ^_^

But the nights were chilly enough for a cozy evening by the fireplace.

I tried learning some cooking recipes from my mum, which were quite hard to make. Making fullo pastry for pies and cabbage rolls. I enjoy eating both of course but I fail at making them :o

I worked a lot on my crafts preparing for the exhibition...

But I never neglected my nails ^_^

NARS Night Series

Hello everyone ^_^/

Just two weeks are left for Christmas so I did a bit of holiday shopping. One of the top items on my wishlist was the whole NARS Night Series collection. I love the Night Series eyeshadows and have collected almost all of them over the years so as soon as I saw the eyeshadow palette and nail polishes I knew they had to be mine.

I was so excited when the package arrived!

Here is what was inside. The NARS Night Series Eyeshadow Palette and two nail polishes, Night Breed, a black creme with silver glitter, and Night Rider, a sparkly glittery light purple.

I am so in love with these two nail polishes right now <3
So of course I had to wear them on the spot. Application was perfect, as expected of NARS nail polishes, and you would be pleased to know that these are one coaters! I still applied two coats but one would have been just fine.

After wearing my nails like this for a couple of days, I wanted to spice them up a bit so I did a drip design using the same colours.

What do you think of this collection? Will you be getting anything from it? Are you a fan of NARS in general?

What I have been up to

Hello everyone ^_^/

As you might remember a few posts back I mentioned I was working on something very exciting.
Today I can finally reveal what it is. I will be taking part in an art exhibition in my hometown, showcasing my jewellery, nail and deco creations!

The exhibition opens on Saturday Dec 10 and will last for a week.
So for the last few weeks I have been working non stop making all sorts of preparations.
Here is a sneak preview of what has been going on over at my work bench lately.

This is so challenging and exciting for me, especially since deco is practically unknown here and this will be the first time it is properly exhibited in my area! So I want to do my best and present everything in the best possible way.

I will make a post about the exhibition with lots of photos and coverage when it is over.

For the time being back to work I go. I hope everyone has a nice evening ^_^

December nail inspiration, Christmas nails

Hello everyone ^_^

wow, December is already here, so this means that this is the last nail inspiration post for 2011!
December is my favourite month of the year for two reasons mainly! A. it marks the beginning of winter and B. Christmasssss!!!! Need I say more?

This month's nail inspiration comes from the December issue of Nail Max and is of course Christmas themed! So get ready for a variety of different Christmas nail art designs!

There are many different nail looks you can do for Christmas, whether you prefer warm or cool colours.

And here are a few simple nail art tutorials for more everyday nail looks from the December 2009 edition of Nail Venus.

I always love browsing through my old nail magazines and get inspiration from them too. Do you keep your old magazines or do you throw them away? I archive mine.

And that's it for this month's nail inspiration, I hope you liked some of these looks and got some ideas for amazing manicures *^_^*

On a sidenote, Cel's deconails can now be found on Google+ too. Just follow this link or click the button on the right sidebar to check it out :)

the Greek files #10

Hello everyone ^_^/

I will close the month of November with another instalment of the Greek files.

This time I want to show you a fabulous blue flakie nail polish from a Greek budget beauty brand called Beauty Line.
I found this both in blue and black and snagged both but I wanted to try the blue one first.
As I wanted the colour to be a bit darker, I layered one coat over a coat of Just Rock It, a dark blue by Essence. Added a coat of Seche Vite for extra shine and that was it ^_^

Unfortunately the photos don't do this beautiful nail polish justice. As we don't have a lot of sun in the winter I couldn't showcase the flakie goodness properly. But this is a fabulous and quite unique colour and can be bought at a very good price, so I just couldn't pass it up ^_^

Nails, nails and more nails + a cool deal

Hello everyone ^_^/

Wow, it's been almost two weeks since my last post but I have a good excuse. I am working for something very exciting. I cannot reveal what it is yet but soon, very soon, I will ^_^

In the meantime, here are the nails I've been sporting for these last couple of weeks.

First I wore my favourite colour from the Color Club Molten Metals collection, Lumin-Icent. It's a lovely light blue metallic colour which is perfect for this time of year. Perfect coverage in two coats is definitely a plus ^_^

After a couple of days of crafting non stop there was some minor chipping. But I loved the colour so much that I decided a glitter gradation mani would be the best solution. I used Color Club Sugarplum Fairy and Jingle Jangle from the Beyond the Mistletoe collection and voila! My mani was saved!

Don't you just love gradation nails? It's one of my favourite looks as it's easy to make and always looks glamorous!

Next up I went for my favourite colour, purple! Here is Etude House LUCIDarling in Purple Satin. I had to use three coats for this one to get perfect coverage.

And last but not least, here is the colour I have on right now. China Glaze Marry a Millionaire from the Eye Candy 3D glitter collection. I was so excited when I first heard about these that I just had to get them asap! And I definitely wasn't disappointed! It was really hard choosing which colour to try first but I just had to go with the purple one in the end XD

The photo just doesn't do this beauty justice. This is one of the most interesting glitters I have ever owned. Purple mini bar glitter with a mix of green and silver. Absolutely fantastic!!!

Before I close this post I would like to inform you about a great deal that is on right now at over at Viva La Nails. There is a Black Friday 25% off deal running. Just enter code BLACK during check out to get 25% off your order.

I certainly won't be passing this one up!

Anna Sui gothic roses nails

Hello everyone ^_^/

Today I have a very special manicure to show you. This is my favourite style on nails. Dark colours, roses and lots of glitter. Plus a lovely rose scent.

I present to you my Anna Sui gothic roses manicure.

Here is what I used.

Anna Sui #110  a lovely black polish with silver glitter
Anna Sui #300 a pink chunky glitter polish
Seche Vite base and top coat
Rose nail decals

First I applied two coats of Anna Sui 110

This is my go to nail polish when I need a quick glamorous manicure. Unfortunately this exact colour has been discontinued and this is my last bottle so I use it sparingly.

Then I added the nail decals and glitter. I sealed everything with Seche Vite top coat and my nails were ready!

Do you like wearing dark colours on your nails? Or do you find them too gothic?

Let's try something different

Hello everyone (^o^)/

I've been thinking for a while now that I wanted to have a bit more variety in my blog (which was my intention when I started, before getting sucked in to the world of nail polish). So since one of my hobbies is photography I decided to start a new feature for this blog, called "last month in pictures". Pretty self-explanatory, right?

So here is Cel's October in pictures.

I did a bit of nail hauling, both for me and for nail swaps.

I walked around town with good friends

And enjoyed the colours of a beautiful sunset.

But I wasn't lazy!

I tidied up my stuff (or at least I tried XD)

And worked on some custom orders and new items for my shop.

And that was how October went by (^∇^)

What did you think of this post dear friends? Did you like it or did you find it boring?

Four days into November, this is the November nail inspiration post. A few days ago I got the November issue of Nail Up! and I fell in love with the pretty nail art ideas and tutorials. So for this month, inspiration comes from this magazine. Here are the manicures that I enjoyed most.

I really like the above designs, especially the lovely marble french manicure. Such an interesting twist to a somewhat usual look.

And here are some step by step tutorials for some cool looks ^_^

Also on October 31st was the end of my Seventeen nail polishes giveaway. The winner is commenter #60, Kayono of Neues from Kellerkind. Congratulations!!! Please drop me an email so I can send your prize to you (^_^)

My Pink Halloween manicure

Hello everyone and Happy Halloween!

Today I have a manicure to show you that I was saving especially for today, as it turned out to be my favourite Halloween mani. Wanting to escape the usual colours I decided to use black and magenta instead ^_^


The nail polishes I used were Sally Hansen Black Out, Etude House LudiDarling Shimmering Magenta Pink and Kleancolor Chunky Holo Fuchsia. I also used some Pa nail stickers that I got in Japan a while ago.

Please excuse the tip wear. I took the photos on the third day I had this one. Sadly this mani didn't last as much as my other ones, which was a bit disappointing.

Here is a thumb detail. I really liked the black kitties ^_^

Do you like this colour combination for Halloween? What I enjoyed most on this mani was the way the Kleancolor holo looked layered over the other colours. Especially in the sunlight it was fabulous!

I am going to close this post with a photo of my favourite location for Halloween, Roppongi Hills in Tokyo.
This photo was taken on the top of the Mori tower and you can even see Tokyo tower in the back.

Orly in my city? Yay!!!

Hello everyone ^_^/

Just a few days ago, I was enjoying a nightly stroll around town and came across something totally unexpected. What was it you may ask and how does it relate to this post here?

Well, it was this!

An Orly Birds Of a Feather collection display! You can imagine my surprise, as I had no idea this brand was available in my city ^_^

So of course I had to go when the store was open and check out the selection!
I was not disappointed as they had the whole collection available, yay!

Having all these lovely colours, it was quite hard for me to decide on just a few but in the end I picked up 4 nail polishes.

From left to right, Liquid Vinyl, Night Owl, Lucky Duck and of course Fowl Play. They had other brands available but I decided to focus on Orly.
The owner was very nice and we chatted for a while about nails and stuff so my trip was double the fun.
I already have Fowl Play on my nails but that will be the subject for another post.

And for my Greek readers.
Αν μένετε στην Θεσσαλονίκη και σας ενδιαφέρει, το μαγαζί λέγεται Hair Play και βρίσκεται Β.Όλγας 166.
