From The Vault: Past Week

Hello everyone! I've been missing for the past week - first I was infected with flu and it was a very persistent one, I was even prescribed an IV bag and 5 different pills to speed up the recovery. Then I went to this place:


Do you know which city I'm talking about? German folks probably guessed right, I was in Munich for the Easter holidays =) Sadly I was too sick to remember that it was Easter, shops were closed! O_o We were lucky to have them opened on Easter Saturday, though, and I could get my hands on Nintendo 3DS Aqua Blue! =DDD And my brother got it in Cosmo Black. It's sold for about 360 EUR in my country, and I only got it for about 220 EUR! (249 EUR minus Tax.) Anyone wants to exchange friend cards? Just e-mail me!
(Done using bm16 and black on top of China Glaze Happy Go Lucky.)
Other than that, we visited Deutsches Museum, Dachau Concentrations Camp, Olympic Village and Starnberg Lake =) Here is a picture of me and my brother, near Olympic Park Lake =)


I was still sick here, after 10 days! =/
Here is another manicure I did in the past week, using OPI Fiercely Fiona and the Hello Kitty Fauxnad plate.



I really liked the combination of Fiercely Fiona with purple =)
Finally, here is a design inspired by the tape manicures of Erika. She is amazingly talented & creative with her Scotch tape manicures, I'm always inspired by how amazing such simple ideas can look! Here is my first try, using Essence Dress For A Moment, black and China Glaze IDK:



German tap water doesn't agree well with my skin. Look how dry & ragged the skin on my fingers looks! Even Lemony Flutter didn't help much. I guess it's a matter of getting used to a new environment.
That's all for now, have a great day/evening =)

Herkese merhaba! Bir haftadan fazladır yoktum - öncelikle çok inatçı bir gribe yakalandım, en sonunda serum bağlayıp beş tane ilaç & kesin istirahat vermek zorunda kaldı doktor. İşe gidemedim, hatta yataktan bile pek çıkmadım. Sonra biraz kendime geldiğimde hop, ver elini Münih gibi bir durum oldu.
Normalde önemli günleri yakından takip eden biri olduğum halde, hastayım diye mi bilinmez, Paskalya olduğu tamamen aklımdan çıkmış! Bir gittik ki her yer kapalı. Allahtan biraz şansımız vardı da Cumartesi günü dükkanlar açıldı. Böylece ben ve kardeşim birer Nintendo 3DS alabildik =) Buradaki fiyatı 800 TL iken, Tax Free oluşunu da hesaba katarak 500 Lira gibi bir fiyata gelmiş oldu. Friend Card değiş tokuş etmek isteyen olursa, bana mail atsin =)
Bunun dışında Deutsches Museum, Dachau Toplama Kampı, Olimpik Köy ve Starnberg Gölü'ne gittik =) Resimde ben ve kardeşim Olimpik Park Gölü'nün kenarında, 25°C'ye varan sıcaklıkta yayılıyoruz =) Kemiklerim ısındı valla, yoksa zor iyileşirdim herhalde...
Yaptığım başka bir manikür, OPI Fiercely Fiona üzerine Hello Kitty Fauxnad diski ile mor çiçekler. Sarıyla mor kontrast renkler olduğu için çok uyumlu oluyor, ama benimkisi biraz aceleye geldi.
Son olarak, Erika'nın muhteşem bant manikürlerinden esinlendiğim bir desen. Bant manikürlerinde o kadar basit fikirlerden yola çıkarak o kadar harika gözüken şeyler yapıyor ki, aklım gidiyor! Bu da benim ilk denemem, Essence Dress For A Moment, siyah ve China Glaze IDK kullandım.
Bu arada Almanya'nın çeşme suyu ya kireçli ya da genel olarak çok sert, çünkü elimi yıkadıktan sonra sanki aseton değmiş gibi derim kabuk kabuk soyuluyor. Lemony Flutter bile işe yaramadı, sanırım alışmak gerekiyor olmaması için...
Şimdilik bu kadar, görüşmek üzere =)

  1. I got the privilege of visiting Munich in 2009 and it was beautiful! We went to an event at the Olympic Stadium and some of my friends visited Dachau! We saw Nymphenburg Palace and some of us then traveled out to Neuschwanstein! It was so beautiful!!! I even bought a dirndl to bring home. Your post brought back so many memories from my trip there! It made me so happy. Beautiful nails, as always!

  2. Gorgeous manis - especially the tape mani! I've yet to try scotch tape. Was so messy with manicure tapes when I first started painting nails (years ago...) that I gave up on idea of using tapes altogether.

    You look pretty despite of your flu and you have a beautiful brother too!

  9. You look great in the pic! Hope you get well soon. If only I could look as good when sick!

    I love the color combos for both manis - the brown and purple really pop when paired with Fiercely Fiona, and CG IDK works great as an accent color.

  10. @Leslie this was my first time in Munich and I loved it very much! =) I saw all the drindles but they were so damn expensive! =D <3 Glad you liked my post!
    @Doo, this time I taped my nails on the second day of the manicure, and this helped a lot! I'm so impatient and I always ruin my manicure because I can't wait long enough between coats =) Aww, you're so sweet, thank you! =)
    @Laura, @carissakuo, @Enamel Girl thank you, ladies =D
    @FOREVER '92 haha thank you =D No, we're not models =D I'm actually pretty short with 5'4", but my brother has actually considered modeling a while ago, because everyone was telling him to. O_o His girlfriend is a model, though, and one of the Miss Turkey candidates this year =D
    @Manicured Monkey & @Silence is Loud thank you so much, guys!

  31. I always love all your designs (The green/purple one looks great, I would never have thought to combine those colors) but I really loved your tape mani. I tried to do the same design myself in pink a few days ago, & just got pictures ( http://polkapolish.blogspot.com/2011/05/notd-copycat.html ).
    Your blog is always a huge source of inspiration.

  32. Wow you're so lucky you got to visit Munich over Easter. I would love to travel to Germany one day and more of Europe in general :) Ooo a Nintendo 3DS in Aqua Blue sounds awesome and quite the deal you got too!

  34. Sales of the Kindle Fire are going better than expected.
    A whole host of image enhancing features is provided as standard which allows
    users to manipulate and edit images and videos, including autofocus, touch-focus,
    face & smile detection as well as geo-tagging which functions based
    on GPS. It's just a minor annoyance, because the tablet can fit in one hand, and therefore always stay directed to the user.
