A very special surprise

Hey darlings! How are you doing? I'm sorry to say my GFC is still being a little bitch and I can't follow any of new discovered blogs and I have to save the links like in the old days. Sucks. But hey - we crossed 250!! Welcome, everybody and thank you for considering my blog worth your time!

Today I have a special post for you and I actually feel nervous about it, like, don't screw this one up, Ulmiel. About a week ago I got the most unbelievably nice email from Maestra. Yes, you heard me. The Maestra, Parokeet lady. All of you who read their blog and comments too probably noticed I'm a big fan of their blog, I started reading and commeting even before I got a google profile and months before I even thought about nail blogging myself. So when Parokeets noticed my blog and started commeting it I felt really honoured. But this email left me flabbergasted. And so did the package I got today, with wonderful note and amazing gifts, containing food for my two biggest MU addictions, nail polish and eyeshadow and a wonderful smelling tea that I can't wait to try! The polish is Make Up Factory polish I really fell for, of course on Parokeets blog. So of course I had to put it on immediately. And since I'm taking my first baby steps towards nail art (that is more of a 'nail try' at this point), I thought about doing a little something next to this wonderful colour. Maestra, I hope you like it. :) Thank you so much for making this week so wonderful for me, the timing is more perfect than you know and thank you for making a small blogger and nail junkie feel so special. :)




It's the gorgeous Make Up Factory number 123 or Gipsy Green as their page reveals (I hate the numerical names. hate it hate it hate it), that I simply couldn't find anywhere anymore. It's a gorgeous green, don't you think? On my ring finger it's Who The Shrek Are You?, the pattern I tried to make with scotch tape, with inspiration from Chloe's Nails, of course. I'm so digging this scotch tape magic, I'm basically trying with every mani. It's still clumsy, I know, but it doesn't take much time and I hope I'll master it soon enough. :) 

Anyway, two coats of MUF, it's a beauty and no trouble at all. I had no problem with brush, I was only worried about two coater for my ring finger. I put one thick on top and luckily it was enough and it didn't bubble! Seche Vite tho does. I have no idea what's wrong with my bottle. It bubbles like crazy lately. :/ But anyway ... this is it, people. Wonderful surprise from a wonderful blogger and person. I'm trully thankful.

How do you like Make Up Factory 123? And my first tries with scotch tape art? ;) 

Maestra, thank you again. I said it before, and you bet I'll say it a couple of times more. :)

And thank you all for reading & following! *mwa*

    Moj prvi odziv, ko sem videla slike, je bil vau. Mislim, lak je prelep, črte pa prav lepo popestrijo manikuro.

  10. sorry to post here but i don't know why you cannot follow the blog . Well i don't know much about how the blog works really but maybe if you try again it works ????? by the way the light green of the nail art stripes is gourgeus. I never tried this makeup factory brand but the colour is very nice.

    Manikura mi je seveda všeč! Perfektna je! <3 Čudovita kombinacija barv in krasno izvedeno! Laki pa celo imajo ime na njihovi spletni strani (http://www.makeupfactory.de/index.php?id=nails). Temu je ime Gipsy Green. ;)
