Summer outfits, Catch of the month - Avgust and a Challenge


This post is gonna be a really long one :) Summer is almost over, yay :) I've been wearing my favourite pair of shorts a few days ago and I was joking that they deserved their own post on blog, but they kinda do. I don't think I've ever worn a piece of clothing as much as I did my DIY studded shorts. And they're not even black :) So here it is, two of my favourite summer outfits (I just had to show a totally black one too, I have a reputation to obtain :D)

- H&M Hunt me down
- H&M Moon shine

- Look by Bipa Metallic violet

- b*pretty silver crackle
- random glitter nail polish for kids

New Catrice and Essence polishes:

- Catrice Steel my heart
- Essence Grey-t to be here
- Essence I'm the boss!
- Essence Chick reloaded

OPI Midnight in Moscow

Another dark one, I really got sucked into it apparently :) I'm probably gonna be rocking neons in November :) 

This little beauty is from OPI's 2007 Russian collection, which was amazing <3 Midnight in Moscow is a perfect blackened shimmery vampy. It needs two coats and with first coat you can clearly see the almost black base, filled with dense tiny red shimmer. My only beef with this pretty is that it chips instantly on me :( Oh well, can't win them all :)

Orly Goth

First off, some shameless promotion :) My BFF just started blogging and if you have a spare minute, go check out her blog Baroque fool. She does awesome manicures, especially color blocking and she's funny as well :)

Now to nail polish, black with a twist, just how I like them. This is Goth by Orly, one of my most worn blacks. It has a black base with sparse tiny silver shimmer and bigger glitter particles. Here I have two thin coats, one thick would probably be enough. Despite good pigmentation the glitter shows trough very nicely.

It looks good inside....

... but when you put it out in the sun, it shows it's true beauty.

What's your favourite black-ish color?

Neons and animal prints: Bikinis and bubbles

What looks better together than neon colors and animal prints? Nothing if you ask me. Then again, I also think reality shows make great TV :) 
Yes I even like it so much that I've bought a bikini top, looking like this :) For those of you that don't know, I only wear black (with a few minor exceptions). Oh well :) It inspired me to do this mani:

For neon I used S-he 115 as a white base and Depend 035, a really great and well pigmented neon yellow. For the snake part I used Essence Zulu and then sponged it trough tulle with Catrice Sir, yes sir!. The tulle was funky so the snake print looks a bit abstract :D The whole mani bubbled as hell, thank you summer with 35 degrees Celsius *eyeroll*

You like this combo?

Sponged french ( also known as I suck at naming things :)

I'm sure many of you saw this gorgeous mani Ivana from Ivana loves pink posted a few weeks ago. I feel in love with it the moment I saw it and I decided to give it a try, my way :) Since I'm not really a pastel pink lover, I wanted to go with something darker. I also used a different technique. For the base I used Essence Deep blue sea and then sponged Catrice Pool party at night on the center of my nails and a little bit of  Sports girl Nail it! Hawaii five-O. For the bronze tip I used a no-name Paris memories nail polish.

I loved the end result and the combination of bronze and blue is one of my favourites.
What's your take on this variation of Ivana's mani?
