Hey guys! So I was looking around for some brands I haven’t tried, while I was trying to find some of the OPI Skyfall polishes before they’re all gone. I came across ‘Layla‘(Link in Italian).

It’s actually a genetic mutation that gives me 3 rows of lashes on the top, 2 on the bottom. Sounds cool, but not all of them grow the right way and they poke me in the damn eyeball! So a good … Continue reading

Friday Nails: H.R Giger inspired

Hey Strangekittens. Anyone that knows me, knows I’m a Giger fan. If I could, I’d have my entire home look like Giger’s works. Recently I saw Prometheus, and drooled the entire movie. My husband suggested this, so after a couple of tries, I had a go at it! Giger’s works are intricate and detailed, but as the fingernail is a very small canvas, I took some artistic liberty with it I went for the … Continue reading
