Summer Nails

I've collected my summer nails for you in this post, but we start with my Easter nails, which I didn't like that much:
Sannes sommernegle
The light yellow is Sally Hansen's Go Bananas, which I have stamped with my new Bundle Monster Holiday Collection stamping plates. I just don't think it looks much like Easter egs, and my tape-chicken is not very good either - ough. Well, the good thing is that it is easy to remove. ;)

I am playing with stereotypes, that is styles many loves but which I never wear myself, e.g. flowers, red and pink. Here I have stamped roses on top of Misa's Fleeting Hibiscus:
Sannes sommernegle
It was not bad at all.

Back to my favourite colour, green - here R de L's Precious Metal:
Sannes sommernegle
The polish is a gift from a dear colleague, which I have dotted flowers onto, very easy.

I had bought some new tape which I wanted to try. I made this holographic texture manicure:
Sannes sommernegle
The holographic polish is my favourite from MakeupStore named Siw and the texture is IsaDora's Ocean Crush. I have added a matching rhinestone on each nail.

Summer calls for holo polishes, because they are so beautiful in the sunshine:

An old orange polish from Gosh Funky Orange:
Sannes sommernegle
I'm not especially fond of orange, but this one looks so lovely in the sunshine. I've made a simple dotted pattern with red on top of it.

Here I've done my nails at my summer cottage and painted them with the only polish I have there, a really boring light pink shimmer polish. I spiced it up with turquoise checks when I came home:
Sannes sommernegle
The turquoise is Sally Hansen's Blue Me Away.

Another stereotype, pink nails, which I never wear anymore:
Sannes sommernegle
But I did love these. The polish is L'Oreals Shocking Pink, which I would never have called it. I have dotted simple flowers at the tips. I think I will make these again one day.

And the last stereotype for now - butterfly nails:
Sannes sommernegle
I love the mint green colour, which is from Oriflame named Mint Pear, but the butterflies do not impress me. The one at my ring finger is good, but the others are just annoying.

ALT for Damerne, No. 27, 1955

Well, is that a summery cover page or what? Wow, I love that bathing suit. I've scanned from ALT for Damerne (Everything for the Ladies), number 27, 1955 for you. It is the first magazine published in July 1955. Remember that all scans can be clicked into larger formats. Although it is a Danish magazine, I hope my foreign readers will have fun reading my small recaps and get inspiration from the photos.

ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27

In the Binocular is a lovely mix of this and that. This time there is advice on stewed fruit and how to make your own necklace of shells:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27

Bettina wonders - this time she writes about the weather:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27
The weather is something we Danes always talk about, perhaps because it is so changing and unpredictable.

Does Kinsey forget love? Perhaps, because it is not just all about sex:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27

And the article features a photo of my idol, Marilyn Monroe:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27
How many not so fortunately equipped girls might have envied her? I think back then like now, we admired the stars for their big breasts, lovely curled hair or long legs.

The last part of the article:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27

Let's move on to fashion , because now it is 25C degrees in the shadow:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27
I want the check patterned in the middle.

And Pattern on Fabric offered a model for the Mrs and Miss:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27

You could also send in a coupon to buy these three lovely patterns:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27
Again the check patterned is my favourit. I really need a check patterned dress in my collection.

Needlework of the week is a pillow with a Chinese man:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27
I think it will look nice at your summer cottage or in the garden swing.

Within four walls, here you are presented to lovely arrangements if you only had one room:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27

Here is a colourful and festive collection of recipes for a summer buffet - The Party for the Little New One:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27

The buffet might of course be great for at lot of other parties than a Christening party.
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27

On to the ads - I have as always scanned a different mix. We have seen Dandy before, but I thought this one with the vaccinated boy was charming:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27


Here are two ads about how to stay fresh at each end, so to speak:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27
Don't waste 5 years of your life - use Tampax! And below is Odol mouth water, which I don't think is still available. I think it is funny how much the bottle and the name reminds me of toilet cleaner.

Smelling fresh ... with Sno-Mist powder:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27
I wonder if a powder deodorant really worked?

A holiday tip:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27
OB for internal use, to rescue your holiday. OB was also back then the greatest compitor to Tampax.

I love Tosca's ads, they are so stylish and beautiful:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27
I wish I could still buy the creams. I used them as a teenager and remember them as being really lovely.

Delicious as summer food, OTA's corn flakes:
ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27

And here Oxford has conjured ALT for Damernes logo into their own ad, which was all over the last page of the magazine:
 ALT for Damerne, 1955, nr. 27

I wish you all a fabulous summer.
