>Hey guys =) Thursday evening, us four Turkish nail bloggers met and had so much fun. We ate, laughed and talked about so many things. I even painted some nails & drew things with acrylic paint!


Clockwise from top: Youknow (black nail polish with pink acrylic paint petals and glitter on top), Zuzu (Flor Mar #398), me (Nubar Indigo Illusion and rhinestone arrangements on top), and Nemo (Essie Going Incognito)

I did my friend Youknow‘s nails, you can see a better picture here: (courtesy of her)

I used acrylic paint from Born Pretty Store and drew the petals using a thin brush. Then she used glitter similar to China Glaze Techno to amp it up a bit =) This manicure was inspired of this manicure by Ophelie.

This is Zuzu‘s manicure, I drew random doodles on her nails with yellow acrylic paint:


Finally, here is my own manicure, Nubar Indigo Illusion with rhinestones on top.


By the way, one of my nails was torn so badly, (almost halfway across the nailbed) that I felt like I had to wear some artificial nails while it grows out a bit. I will post about my artificial nails very soon =)

Perşembe akşamı 4 Türk tırnak blog yazarı olarak buluştuk. Çok güzel bir akşamdı; bol bol yedik, güldük, konuştuk =) Oje sürüp desen bile yaptım üstelik!
Resimde saat yönünde yukarıdan aşağıya: Youknow, Zuzu, ben ve Nemo var. Youknow’un tırnaklarına siyah oje üzerine akrilikle pembe çiçekler çizdim. Ortalarında da taş var, birazcık da sim sürdük. Zuzu’nun tırnaklarında Flor Mar #398 var, bu resim çekildikten sonra sarı akrilik boya ile çeşitli şekiller yaptım. Öykü de fanatik Galatasaraylı olduğu için, yolu buralara düşerse ona sarı kırmızı yapacağım bundan =))) Benim tırnaklarımda Nubar Indigo Illusion üzerine çeşitli taşlar var, son olarak Nemo’da Essie Going Incognito var, desensiz. Vakit olsaydı da ona da birşeyler çizseydim keşke…
Bu arada inanılmaz kötü bir tırnak kazası yaşadım, bir tırnağım neredeyse yarısından itibaren yırtıldı yatay olarak =/ Bu yüzden o tırnak biraz kendine gelene kadar bari takma tırnak takayım dedim. Takma tırnaklarımı gösteren yazım çok yakında =)

>Hey guys =) I’m sorry for the lack of posting in the last days, I had a difficult time… But I’m feeling better now. On top of that, I broke both index nails, and therefore I shortened all my nails again. I’m out of topcoat, and I’m really broke for the rest of April, therefore my nails are bare. The lovely Golden Rose Quick Dry topcoat is out of stock, and they don’t know when they will have it back in stock again. Grr! I frankened myself a topcoat using some old, gloopy Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, a new, not-so-quick drying local brand topcoat, and some leftover Golden Rose. The result was not bad at all! At least it can hold until I get my hands on some decent topcoat =)
By the way, this week I got some kick-ass package from the States =) With the help of my dear friend, Elizabeth, I was able to get my first Zoya’s, Nubar and some other stuff I’ve been lemming for, plus some surprises! Yay! I’ll shut up now and let the pictures talk:


L-R: Sally Hansen Lickety-Split Lime (Yaaay, Shrek Green! Finally!), Nubar Indigo Illusion, Nubar Peacock Feathers, Sinful Daddy’s Girl


L-R: Zoya Envy, Ki, Adina, Zara, which I all ordered when there was a Buy 2 – Get 2 Free! sale going on.


L-R: Zoya Ivanka (Oh. My. God), Charla (*swooon*), Mimi (*thud*), and finally Alegra, which was a surprise from Liz! ❤


Finally, the extras! L-R: Claire’s Mood Polish in calm/wild, OPI Jade Is The New Black, OPI Suzi Says Feng-Shui, which is the tiniest polish I’ve ever seen; Sinful Gorgeous and Innocent (Yaaaay, another Shrek Green!!!)
I’m so happy for all those polishes, especially Zoya’s. The Sparkle collection is one of the best collections I’ve ever came across, unbelivably beautiful in the bottles and also on the nails. I’m so happy I’ve almost fulfilled all my wishes in the past months =D Thank you so much, Elizabeth, you rock my little polish world!
PS: Did you notice how almost all polishes are either green or purple? =D
