Almond shaped violet nails with shiny dazzlings

In the last post about doughnut pendant there was one of my nails in the photo. Now it’s time to show them all :)
I was a little bit bored with the square shape of my nails so I made them more almond this time. I am very happy with this shape :)
And here they are.

It’s gel nails with some shiny dazzlings. Everything is in one of my favourite colour – violet.

And here is the thumb.

I hope you like them :)

 

 

Phone pendant with miniature clay doughnut

Do you like doughnuts? I love them! Especially when they are with some nice sweet colourful sprinkles on the top :)
I was thinking that it would be nice to have mini doughnut always with me so I made one. The cake and icing is made from self hardening clay and sprinkle from Fimo. I was browsing the internet to learn how to make clay doughnuts and I must say it’s not so difficult.

On this photo I wanted to show how big is the cookie. I could just put a coin or match next to it, but this is a nail blog so I put my thumb there :)

I will definitely make more mini doughnuts with different icing and sprinkles :)

Short pink nails with water decals

Recently I was browsing Internet with my friend and we spotted water decals for nails. We both thought – WOW using them would be a time maschine bringing us back to our childchood. I remember that as a little kid I was sticking them on my grandmothers wardrobe doors:)

So I bought one sheet of water decals and tried them on my nails.

I didn’t make nail extensions this time so I just painted my really short nails with regular nail polish and then laid decals on the top instead embeded them them into gel. After drying I applied one layer of topcoat.

I must say I was more happy with application of water decals than regular nail stickers because they are so tiny  so sometimes I stick stickers not in exact position I want. With water decals you can adjust their position before they dry. They are also COMPLETELY flat :)

Bad thing was that if you look very close you can see that they are not perfectly printed, but this can happen to a normal nail stickers also.

I was very happy with design. They look like one stroke painting! I would love to learn this technique. Hand painted flowers are so lovely, but not so easy to make (at least for me).

I think I will buy more water decals soon :)

 

Clay mini lemon cake roll

After making clay birthday cake I started enjoy making miniature sweets. It’s fun!
So this time I made lemon cake roll with cream.

You can slice it so there is more pieces for a dollhouse party :)

On this photo I put a match next to the cake so you can see the actual size of the cake.

I love sweets, but I am not so good at making real ones so I will stick to the clay cakes ;)
