Snowy Glitter Nails

How cool are my snowy glittery black and silver winter nails? Perfect for New Year’s Eve, or even Christmas, or just because it winter and I love glitter. Below I’ll show you step by step how to do it!

These are the polishes I used. A plain black one, silver shatter (but can also be regular silver nail polish), and the most important component is this ubercool silver (but multicolor in sunlight) glitter polish, with tiny glitters. And a top coat. Always use topcoat!
So first I just made my nails black.. Which I could have done more neatly.
Than I applied silver shatter on the top half of my nails. No stickers or tape, you don’t have to be precise here. It won’t show later.
And then I applied two layers of the Essence glitter nail polish, and the effect were sort of snowy glitter nails! Make sure you’re covering all the silver with glitter, and a little extra below to make it look a little ombre.
I was really just trying some polishes out when I came to this idea, and it worked out pretty well if you ask me!
What do you think? Are you giving it a try?

Outfit | Hoodie

Hooded cardigan   /   All Saints

White t-shirt   /   Zara
Burgundy tregging   /   Zara
Shoes   /   Converse
Bag   /   ASOS
I’ve had this cardigan for 2 years now, but it’s still one of my favorites. It’s actually a men’s cardigan, but I don’t care. Love how the hoodie gives my outfit a more sporty look, and I often wear outfits like these.
Really need to have my bangs cut, or otherwise I won’t be able to see anymore since they almost cover my eyes!
I’m looking forward to Christmas, spending time with my loved ones, and of course dressing up! Until then, more comfy and warm looks like this one. Happy wednesday!

Tuesday Tips #2

So I’ve decided to bring Tuesday Tips to my blog as a regular post! I can’t promise I’ll do it every tuesday since I’m very busy at the moment, but I’ll definitely try! This weeks Tuesday Tips show my favorite Scandinavian blogs, since they inspire my style the absolute most.

Hanna Stefansson
This is actually one of my newly discovered favorites. Hanna has only been blogging on the Swedish Metro Mode website for three months now, but it’s already obvious that it won’t be long before we all know her. She shares her edgy outfits as well as bits and pieces of her Swedish life, in which I love to have a peek. Definitely keeping an eye on this one!

Victoria Tornegren
If you’re a Lookbook.nu fan, of course you know Victoria Tornegren. She’s almost a Lookbook legend! Victoria rocks black like no other. She rarely wears colors, but styles her blacks, whites and denim as if they were meant to be worn like she does. I so wish I had the ability to look effortless chic in black, every day. She’s one of my favorite bloggers!

Fashion Aesthetics
Michelle Nielsen from Denmark is a less well known blogger, but nonetheless also of great inspiration to me. She wears a lot of black as well, but in a very different way. Her outfits are very feminine, with lots of layers and interesting details. And mostly very affordable!
A gem yet to be discovered, if you ask me.

Style by Kling
A bit obvious, but of course Scandinavia’s most famous blogger Elin Kling, from Sweden, should be on this list. You know you’ve made it as a blogger when you have your own clothing line for the Swedish H&M.; As the first blogger ever. And not to forget, her Nowhere line at Nelly.com. What she wears almost immediately becomes a trend. Tye-dye making a comeback? It probably is, since Elin was wearing it two weeks ago (and I’ve already seen copies on multiple blogs!). Somehow she can make wearing a cream jumper on top of cream jeans a huge trend. Elin, what’s your secret?
Blame it on Fashion
Blame it on Fashion is a blog by Marie Hindkaer Andersen, who dresses more mature than the bloggers named above, but also very feminine and, I probably don’t even have to say this word by now anymore, minimalistic. It often amazes me how Scandinavian people can wear the most simple things, and make them look like the most stylish outfit ever. We Dutchies have a lot to learn. Marie also shares quite some shopping posts by the way!
Mariannan
Marianna’s blog, from Finland, is really appealing to me because what she’s wearing is so real. If it’s cold, she wears coats and scarfs. While we bloggers just suck up the frost sometimes, posing in just a jumper, she actually shoots what she’s wearing. Even Uggs. She posts a lot of personal stuff as well! Her style is very girly cute, but not in a barbie pink way. Just see for yourself.

Columbine Smille
Another one that might be a bit obvious, but I just loooove the style of Columbine from Sweden. It kind of shows she works together with Elin Kling, but nonetheless that girly little pretty face has a style of her own. Like above, showing the most perfect look with those much desired Isabel Marant jeans. Boy do I wish I had the ability to style track pants the way she does..

That’s it for now, but of course there are so many more Scandinavian bloggers with an amazing style. Sometimes I wish I was Scandinavian, just because it just seems like they have a natural ability to dress minimalistic yet so interesting. It seems to come natural, and yes, I envy that. But I thank them very much for having a blog and giving me a chance to be inspired. Which I am.
I might do another ‘Scandinavian Bloggers’ post in the future, showing you a bit more unknown bloggers, but for now I have to run. Busy, busy!

The REAL Christmas wishlist

Around Christmas time, everybody makes there wishlist. Of course I have my own, but I think everybody has two. There’s a wishlist with all those designer items you want, but you know Santa isn’t going to buy for you. And there’s the REAL Christmas wishlist, filled with things Santa can afford and might even get you. I’ve came across many wishlists already showing Balenciaga shoes and Mulberry bags, so I decided to do a real one myself. And honestly, I wasn’t planning on making an outfit but it turned out to be one. I want to wear this, all, and together. So Santa, what do you think?

Outfit | Isabel Marant Boots & Ombre Furry Coat

Thanks so much for all the sweet comments on my boots!
Decided to pair them with my new ombre furry coat today. Absolutely in love with both. I was looking for a furry coat for so long and when I came across this grey ombre one, I realized it was just the one I was looking for. And the price wasn’t bad at all either! The jumper I got on sale for just 10 euros! Love the splits at the side, gives it a bid more edge. Absolutely one of my favorite outfits so far.
