Better late than never... Birthday Collab Mani for Ssunnysideup

Hellu ladies!

How are you? Is it as freakin' hot where you are as it is here in Austria? 2 weeks of hot weather now, it's exhausting...
Anyways, today I want to show you, what I did for Sabrina at Ssunnysideup for her birthday. I know, it's nearly a month ago... I'm sorry.
But here it is... finally!

A little explanation...

Hellu ladies!

First I want to apologize for my absence... I miss you...
Not posting on my blog, breaks my heart a bit every day. I want to explain... or rather I try to.

At the moment it's very hard to find the time, to paint my nails, photograph them, edit them and last but not least, blog about it. My weekends are cramped full of stuff, you know round-birthday parties, weddings or other family parties.
During the week I have to work, keep the house in order, do dinner and so on.
And my nails give me a hard time too... my cuticles look like s**t, I think because of the now hot and dry weather and the AC is running everywhere and sucks all the niceness out of my skin... It's frustrating.
But it's not only me... You know Sammy from thenailasaurus - she also posted only four times these last two months, which, you will see if you look at her blog, is very less, compared to before. Like me, she didn't stop painting her nails, but, and I want to recite her now:
I'm still thinking about blogging every single day, multiple times a day... okay basically just all the time. It's in my bones now and I can't escape it. The ideas keep on coming but I'm lagging a little on the execution side of things. I'm sure some of you know exactly where I'm coming from with this. Please tell me I'm not alone! (Source: link)
Yes Sammy, you are not alone!
I love your art, you clean pics, they are so inspirational to me. Everytime you post a gradient, I want to do one too. I know exactly, how you feel and beg you, don't stop blogging! Don't force yourself, but don't stop entirely either! I would miss you so much!

And there is Robin from roaringnails, my personal blogging BFF. She is on an internship at the moment and very busy too. I miss her posts and nail art.

I really can't understand, how people have the time to write a new post everyday like Ithfifi from Ithinity Beauty or Eva from Flight of Whimsy (two very awesome blogs, if you don't know them)! I mean, this is awesome and I'm so jealous!
I feel pangs of conscience every time I see, that they wrote a new post.

And then I start thinking: Don't you want to post? Do you have a blogger burnout? Do you want to stop completely? Do you want to abandon your baby entirely? Are you passionate enough about all this?
These thoughts make me sad... really sad.

But then my Inner-Nail-Freak speaks up...

Yes! You want to post! Yes, you want to write about what you have done!
Maybe, you are a bit burnt-out, but this is nothing, a bit of time can't heal!
No! You don't want to stop, you love what you do!
No! You don't and won't abandon your baby! You can do this!!
Yes! You are a nail freak and you have the passion!

So there is hope!

I'm glad you have come so far in this post, that makes me happy!

I just wanted to write this off my heart, because it is a burden, I wanted to get rid off for a long time now.
I'm also sorry, that there are no pics today, but I don't have anything related to the mood of this post...
But I'm confident, that after nearly two years, I'm allowed to share something personal here, without sounding awkward (hopefully ;) ).

I have lots of unreleased pics in my stash, so if you stay tuned, you can see them in near future. And like I said before, I didn't stop painting my nails, so there will be nail art afterwards too!

Thank you, really thank you, for reading all this! Please share your thoughts, I'm curious!

The Nerd-Geek Challenge - A Summary

Hellu ladies!

Greetings from sunny and hot Austria! I didn't post much lately, because I'm super busy with private life and sunbathing! :) After this wet and cold May, finally the sun showed up and graced us with her presence!
But enough talking, more pictures!
Today's post is about Robin's and my challenge, we did in April and May! Robin already posted her round-up post, which you can see here. She was also so kind, to lend me the collage she made from all the pics from other bloggers!

The Nerd-Geek-Challenge - Final Prompt - Inspired by a Fantastical Beast

Hellu ladies!

Today is the last prompt of Robin's and my challenge! Robin has already posted her interpretation which you can look up here! I think it turned out super cool!
I took inspiration from one of my favourite animated movie, book and comic book! What could this be you may ask?!
It's The Last Unicorn!

The Nerd-Geek Challenge - Third Prompt ... Inspired by a TV-Show

Hellu ladies!

Better late, than never, today's post is about my favourite Sci-Fi show! Believe me, it was tough, but I had an idea stuck in my mind for this prompt, for a very long time.
I did something completely different...
I will tell you soon, but now, let's see what I've done for you today!

The Nerd-Geek Challenge - Prompt 2 - Inspired by a Movie

Hellu ladies!

Today is inspired by a fantasy/Sci-Fi movie and you know, nail art is a boundless art and you can take inspiration from everywhere!
So when I saw the new Star Wars - The Force Awakens movie teaser last week, I knew immediately what I will do for this prompt!
Let's take a look!

Negative space halfmoon blobbicure

Hellu ladies!

Are you like me thinking about, what you will do for our second prompt? I already have something in mind and I'm really curious what you guys will do!
But until then, I want to share something with you, I did a while ago!
I partly participated at the WNAC (Weekly Nail Art Challenge) hosted by @missbellatracey , @simplynailogical  and @kgrdnr (I'm currentyl unable to link to their Instagram profiles, so just search them there).

The Nerd-Geek Challenge - First Prompt!

Hellu ladies!

It's the first Sunday of Robins and my challenge. Todays post is inspired by our favourite Sci-Fi / Fantasy character and believe me, this was tough! I had to think really hard and there were so many that came to my mind.
But then, through the fog of my brain an angel came, or more an "Archangel" came, to rescue me...
(Some maybe got the hint already...)
I want to show you my true Sci-Fi love... Garrus Vakarian from Mass Effect.

Marble shards

Helluuu ladies!

Wow, it's been incredibly long since my last post, but I was so busy with my life outside blogging. I had a busy time at work and my private life was also very turbulent.
Anyways... I did something some time ago, inspired by my dear blogging friend Robin! I saw THIS post and boom inspiration hit me so hard!
But it's just inspired by the colors I think, because my mani isn't a copy as you can see! Now, let's take a look and I will also share the secret behind this unbelievable simple design!

Better later than never - Valentine's nails! :)

Hello lovlies!

Today I want to show you something I did for Valentine's day, which is nearly a month ago. But who cares!
Actually, I wore this design some days before Valentine's day. On Valentine's day I did a more vampy design, which I didn't take pics of, because my fingers are in a real bad shape at the moment.
The cold weather really tortures my hands and cuticles and I don't want you to see them in such a bad condition.
However, let's take a look!

I'm back and 50 Shades of Ruffian

Helluuu ladies!

I'm not in blogger heaven and I hope you missed me!
I'm really sorry for my absence, but I have a busy life outside the blogging world at the moment. Hopefully I can post more now!

Today I have a ruffian manicure for you, done with polishes from the O.P.I. - Fifty Shades of Grey Collection!

Something special for a special blogger friend!

Hey ladies!

Today is a special day for a special blogger friend of mine! It's Robin's birthday, from roaringnails.

I'm honest, I didn't make something solely for her, but I have decided to post this unposted mani and dedicate it to her. It's simple but very elegant!
Let's take a look, shall we?
