The snow white flowers on Manhattan

 
 
I remember when I was young ages ago I had some Manhattan polishes, so it was quite nostalgic to find the brand in Germany. The gorgeous shade with the “interesting” name 67N is a true one coater, dry time a bit on the slow side. I used P2 544 My place or yours? for sponging across the nail, and then I went berserk with white flowers, and I really liked it. The top coats is – have you guessed it by now: Seche Vite :)
Da jeg var ung for rigtigt mange år siden, havde jeg også nogle Manhattan neglelakker, så det var helt nostalgisk at genfinde mærket i Tyskland. Denne smukke farve med det ”interessante” navn 67N er en et-lags lak, men tørretiden er noget langsom. Jeg brugte P2 544 My place or yours? til at duppe tværs hen over hver negl, og så gik jeg amok med hvide blomster, og jeg var ret vild med dem! Toplakken er – har du gættet det – JA Seche Vite!! ;)

    1. I actually only have this one - I felt the dry-time was a bit slow - but I might try some more...
      Well my first shot was the "Christmas Story" than on off more or less, until around the beginning of March, where I became more serious!

      At my age I need to speed up the learning curve to keep up with the young girls, that have their life in front of them LOL
      Nah, honestly, I love to do it, and have discovered something new I can do - but didn't know I could, and I love that.
      Sob story: When I was a child getting love was connected to being "good enough". Not being loved because of who you are but because of what you are good at has it's costs. One of them is to believe that you actually ARE good enough LOL

    5. Hahaha - speeding up the learning curve, eh? ;D
      I know all about the sob story. Even as an adult my dad can still make me feel like: "Yes, that's good, but it would be better if..." Argh! It never ends! LOL

      Slet
    6. Yup :)
      No, it never really ends, but we tend to get better at handling to older we get. Unfortunately it's a story that way too many (girls especially) recognize. Frankly that's why I chose not to become a mum myself, I was afraid of doing the same to my children..

    7. I'm sure you wouldn't have :) But I like that people actually consider whether to have children or not, instead of just having them because "you're supposed to"!

  24. Although it has such a disappointing name :-) "67N" is a beautiful colour! :-)
    I like the effect that you get with the "sponging", I like the combination of colours and I also like that the flowers are big but we can still see the beautiful "background"! :-)
