Gelish nails and apple cake :) (an old post that I forgot to post)

This post was just waiting for my in my Edit posts list, poor thing, probably thought it would never see daylight, but little did it know...that it actually will!

Since the post wasn't finished there is no apple pie anymore and nor is there a recipe :(.

But about the nails, they lasted nicely 4weeks and after that I did get them one more time done, but decided to take them off about two weeks later. I didn't go to my nail lady, but did it myself with tin foil and 100% acetone, just put cotton pads with acetone on my nails and covered them with tin foil and let them work like that for about 10-15min and then scraped the polish off. I'm sure it is not healthy by any means for your nails, but saved me 10€.

Here's the original post:

I just remembered that I haven't done an update on my nails. Gosh, what a silly little thing am I :P.

I got the nicest compliment, and most certainly unexpected, on my nails yesterday. Well anyone hasn't really said anything but oh their pretty to me, so someone (a very handsome young man :P) saying that they are cool was like, awww that's so sweet!

OK, I'll let you see my nails.

Gelish UV gel polish
I got them done on July 27'th, so it's been 3weeks soon, I'm going to get them done again on the 22'nd. The picture above is from a couple days after getting them done. The growth part is at the moment about 3-4mm. My nails haven't broken (knock on wood) yet and hopefully they won't. I really love the Gelish polish, and the darker colors don't fade in contact with sunlight. I'm not sure what color to get next, I'm thinking about pink tips, but neutral all over color, or pink and then with Konad lace-like tips. Oh how hard it is to decide.

I also thought to share my apple cake/pie recipe, I really like it, it's so good and since it is getting more like autumn every day...

Review- Rimmel Matte Finish Topcoat|Pink nails with cracked white polish

Haven't written in a long time!

My lovely pink manicure

From L to R: Rimmel Whitener, CG Shoking Pink, Depend Cracked Effect in 5000, Rimmel Matte Finish
I've been looking for Rimmel Matte Finish a looooong time now, and about two weeks ago finally found (the shops here, oh well....).

My first impression on it was- meh (yep, I did sound like Snookie making meh :P) , don't like it! But the tables have turned and now I actually really love it. I still haven't figured out what I did wrong the first couple of times applying it, but I think the color on  my nails was still too wet, because this time it worked perfectly, made all my nails a velvet matte finish! Love it!

I first apply my basecoat to all my nails, then I apply the 1st coat of my color to all my nails and then the 2nd, then I wait a little and apply either the cracked finish polish or my Rimmel Matte. If I choose to apply the cracked finish, then I have to wait till it's dry and then I can apply either a regular topcoat or the Rimmel Matte Finish one. It takes a little bit time till the polish starts to turn matte, but it's under one minute and then the result should be seen, if not, then it probably means that the colored polish was still too wet.
With the topcoat on my manicure stays good for about a week to 1,5weeks I would say!
