Here’s my first try with magnetic nail polish. Not perfect yet, but I think I’ll like and I have 9 more fingers for practicing! I’ll show you the result, if it’s good, otherwise I’ll practice some more and show you then!
By the way, I finally went to the movies to watch “The Avengers”, I felt like the last person on the planet to watch that movie. But it’s not so easy to find a date for a couple of people who all work and/or study at different times. I really loved that movie, it was awesome and every bit as good as I expected. But guess what! I wore neither the appropriate make up nor did I have fitting nail art. However, I had a great evening and got to look at some nice 3D shots of Captain Americas butt!
I am back from the festival, but I’ll need a little more time to come up with a post that really shows how wonderful everything was. And I need to take care of my nails, that look like crap after camping for a weekend.
So here’s a little something for now. Remember how the Donots sang whatever happened to the 80s? I don’t know, but I know what happened to the 90s! They had been hiding a while, peeking out here and there and finally showing up at the MTV Movie Awards this year!
As always I found my pictures on Jezebel and picked my faves:
Fedoras – awesome, I have always loved fedoras since they’re originally 20s inspired ♥
Peplums – not soooo 90s – actually invented in ancient Greece, loved in the 40s and 80s, still they are really pretty. And they have been here 2009 already.
Silver/Space-y Stuff – paired with an “above the knuckle”-ring: totally 90s! Could have been taken from the Clueless set, I’d say! But I like it, the Silver nails, the pointy shoes. But why in the world does Kristen Stewart always stand so weird. She’s such a gorgeous young woman, but she looks a little lost and awkward in a lot of red carpet pictures.
This one is not so 90s, but I like it. It looks rather boring at first, the watches give it a really neat little twist.
Which outfits did you like? Would you wear 90s fashion?
After the really awesome Avengers make-up by Jangsara, here comes some more (nerdy) beauty!
Here are some truly artistic nail art versions of the superheroes [Click on picture for source]
I would love to do some really artistic ones. But I just cannot paint my right hand and I don’t have that much time right now.
So I thought to myself, well, I want at least something The Avengers inspired!
You may have noticed, how I love accented nails lately, they are so easy, but there’s still a little twist to the look compared to just plain one color nails.
I was thinking the Hulk first, I keep that one for later. So here are my Iron Man inspired accented nails:
I used Catrice 650 Goldfinger and Rival de Loop 24.
I might do some Iron Man face detail on the golden finger later. What do you think?
A friend and me went to THE concert two days ago! NKOTBSB - New Kids On The Block and the Backstreet Boys. We won the tickets at local radio station.
If you do not know them, listen to NKOTB – Step by step and BSB – Everybody. And here’s also a little video of the concert in Hamburg.
The concert so totally rocked! I wasn’t even a fan back in the days, but I still knew all the songs. We were singing along and screaming just like the rest of the girls there. They were all our age and you could see how everyone was transferred back into her past. There was only one major difference: No hysteria, meaning no crying, fainting, shoving and pushing! That made all the more relaxed.
Here are some impressions (made with my cell phone cam, so they’re not that good..)
Nick doing the boyband hand move
Brain walking like an egyptian (or something like that)
Although Nick and AJ got a little chubby, they all still got the moves
We had an amazing night!
While I put together the Star Wars post for may the 4th, I searched the whole internet for cool Star Wars related make up and couldn’t find any. I was visiting Jangsara, but too early, she came up with an awesome R2D2 style a little later. I love it!
By the way, she also came up with tutorials for some of the Avenger’s looks.
