intro

Hi and welcome! This is Black Saliva, a style focused blog written by Viivi Vanessa R.

I'm a 24 year old girl from Helsinki, Finland and this blog is my own little space on the internet where I can share my thoughts, outfits and write a bit about my life and stuff that I do.

For first timers, I'd say take a quick look at ABOUT ME and get to know me a little before browsing through my posts.

Anyway, I hope you like my blog and leave me a comment.
Enjoy your stay!

Nails I'm not quite sure if I like

idkuva

New nails! I know, I've said before that I don't like matte nails, but look what we have here. Some matte nails!! I don't know why, but it seemed like a good idea in my head, so I decided to give them a try. Though I don't really know what to think about the result. I thought hot pink would look good with some matted grey and I guess it works to some point, but maybe it's the designs that don't really go with each other. I don't know.

Usually after I'm finished doing my nails, I can't stop staring at them if I'm satisfied with the result. With these, I'm staring at them, but for a completely different reason: I'm thinking if I should remove them or not, hahaha.

Anyway, my favourite points are probably the studs on the grey nails. I didn't have triangle-shaped studs, but I had some that are like this: , so I just cut them in half and used those, haha. The gold foil also goes pretty well with the hot pink nail polish, because the polish has a slight shimmer to it too. It's not really visible at all in these pics, but see this to get an idea what I'm talking about.

The pink & white flower stickers are something I bought from Shibuya Marui 100yen store when we were filming the episode for Kawaii International, but more about that later. I used the whole sheet for these two nails... :D

Aaaah, I had such a good vision in my head when I made these, but as it sometimes happens, I couldn't quite get my vision on my nails. Well, I guess this is what I'll be going with for the next few weeks anyway. What do you think about the nails?

Here's a list of products that I used: 
Color Club: Kapow! (pink polish)
• Ciaté: Cream Soda (grey polish)
Cesars Secrets: Matte Top Coat
• Pink & white flower stickers
• Gold transfer foil and foil glue
Nail art studs
• Swarovski crystals: SS3, SS5
• Konad: golden ball deco chain
• Peace-sign charms (ear studs from H&M lol)
• MoYou stamping plates: Biker 04, Punk 04
Konad: white stamping polish

  1. Taas tosi upeat kynnet ja mun mielestä muuten toimivat, ainoa mikä jotenkin pistää silmään on nuo kultaiset reunukset noissa harmaissa kynsissä. :)

    1. kontrasteilla leikkiminen on hauskaa, niin ei tuu liian tårta på tårta -fiilis lopputuloksesta :D
      kulutettu aika riippuu vähän siitä, että kuinka paljon mulla on visiota siitä mitä aion tehdä, vai kokeilenko vaan eri juttuja ja katon mitä tulee :D mut yleensä teen huollon yhtenä päivänä ja koristelut seuraavana ja kyllä siinä useampi tunti vierähtää... :D
      kiitos paljon!<3

  5. They're really amazing! <3
    The only thing that throws me a bit off is the golden accent, I don't know why... but maybe that's the feeling you get hahaha. I'm not sure, but maybe silver or black accent could compliment those colors better? idk xD anyways they look AWESOME. I always look at your nails and think ".. pfffffffff wish I had those!" ♥

    1. thank you so much!<3
      i don't think it's the gold, but it's something about the grey polish. maybe a darker shade would've worked better with these. i don't know :D

  6. Upeat! Mä tuijottelen näitä varmaan vielä viikon :). Nuo kultaiset reunat mattakynsissä tuo mukavasti rytmiä ja ryhtiä mattaan!

    1. kiitti! munkin mielestä ne kultaset reunat on kivat, ehkä toimis vielä paremmin jos ois ns. lättänämpi kynsi ja ne näkyis enemmän myös ylhäältä päin katsottuna :D

    1. iiik, kiva kuulla!<3 tää on kyllä ihana harmaan sävy (peittävyyteen tosin vaatii useemman kerroksen), mutta oon näin jälkikäteen ruvennut aatteleen että näihin kynsiin olis kyllä sopinut tummempi harmaa ehkä paremmin... :D
