[SoMoNight] NORTHMEN a viking saga

Good evening everyone,

I know it’s late but until now (midnight) I was doing my nails for tomorrows SocialMovieNight – this time for the movie NORTHMEN a viking saga.



I am very curious about this movie, especially because this is not the type of movie I usually watch at the cinema.
I saw the trailer and got excited about the fighting sequences, the story and I am ready to be entertained. This time will be very dear to me, because for the first time I will bring my younger brother. I am happy to see his reaction to the whole social movie night and to introduce him to all those awesome people who make this possible over and over again. I hope he will enjoy it as much as I do.

For the nail design I was actually very nervous. What fits a viking movie besides a typical viking helmet, bears and maybe some weapons? I had no idea and was confronted with thing that are pretty difficult to paint on nails haha

So I decided to the basics. Mostly a grey metallic base, some brown to make it look dirty and stoney and the typical symbols.

Here is what this rather simple nail design looks like.






I finished everything off with my matte top coat from O.P.I., because I felt a shiny top coat wouldn’t go very well with this theme.

Even though it is pretty simple, I do love the matte dark nails. They pictures don’t show well, but they really do look like dirty stones and in general make the design appear harsh and strong…..viking-like I think 🙂

What do you think? What would you suggest for a viking inspired nail design?

Have a great night

[Review] KIKO – 514 + 374

Hey everyone,

this is it, I am done…..with the reviews for my KIKO collection 😀

Today I am showing you the last two polishes.



When I first saw this polish I was really not sure what to think. One thing is for sure, this polish is very unique. I never saw a polish like that. It is brown, but has gold glitter as well. I was really curious if the gold shows up as well on the nail as it does in the bottle.
So I bought it.





I am not quite sure, but I think I like it better in the bottle haha



Last but not least is this pretty dark brown polish. So far I don’t own that many brown polishes, so I had to buy this one. I will definitely need this for nail arts.
As for the quality, it is just as good as all the other KIKO polishes.





If you have the chance to get KIKO polishes, buy all the colors you want, especially for the price of two euro, you won’t regret it.
