About Me

Elektra Deluxe
Nägel lackieren ist mein größtes Hobby! Ich habe damit angefangen, als ich 14 war und habe seitdem nicht mehr aufgehört. Meine ersten (leidvollen) Erfahrungen habe ich mit billigen Pastelllacken von einem Christkindlmarkt gemacht. Anschließend bin ich übergangslos in eine kostspielige Chanel-Sucht gekippt, die jahrelang angehalten hat – jeder Lack der Frühjahrs- und Herbstkollektionen hat mein werden müssen und ich liebe jeden einzelnen davon! OPI hat mich vor ein paar Jahren schließlich von der Sucht befreit (natürlich gibt es Rückfälle). Ich trage jetzt Lacke von unzähligen Marken und Indiebrands (die für mich wie ein schwarzes Loch sind, denn ich liebe Glitter-Lacke). Doch ein Teil meiner Sucht ist geblieben: ich brauche alle Lacke jeder neuen Kollektion – nur sind es jetzt nicht mehr 3 wie bei Chanel, sondern hunderte! Chanel alleine war günstiger 😉

Painting my nails is my biggest hobby! I started when I was 14 and have not stopped ever since. I made my first (painful) experience with cheap pastel polishes from a christmas market. After that I stumbled into an expensive addiction to Chanel polishes, that remained with me for years – I had to have each polish of all the spring and fall collections and I love every single one of them! Eventually OPI cured my addiction a few years ago (of course there are relapses). Now I wear polishes from a lot of different brands and Indie brands (they are like a black hole to me for I adore Glitter polish). However, part of my addiction is still there: I feel like needing each polish of any new collection – only that now there are not just 3 new polishes each season as it was with Chanel but hundreds! Chanel alone was cheaper 😉

Back to the 80s …

It was in the 80s when my fascination for beautiful nails began at the age of about 10 years while watching a commercial for the hand cream Kamill. Keep on reading to watch the most horrifying hand creme commercial ever 😉 Continue reading ♥

    • Da hast du dich sehr im Griff 😉 ich habe vor einem Jahr mit den Indie Marken begonnen und zwar mit KBShimmer Proud Peacock (ein mit Glitter vollbepacktes Türkis) und das war der Anfang vom Ende … 🙂


  1. I think I have just fallen in love with your blog 😉 Your posts are amazing!
    Ps. I feel your pain re: Chanel polishes (they are absolutely amazing, aren’t they?).


    • Thank you!! 🙂 I’m so happy that you like my blog! I totally have to check out your blog as well 🙂 And of course I’m glad I found a fellow sufferer regarding my Chanel addiction 😉


  2. I’ve always loved nails, and nail art, but only just decided to do the course and be a technician. I find it so enjoyable and relaxing.
    And to stumble on your blog has made me smile. So many awesome colours, designs and art. I just want to keep practising and be perfect at it. You are an inspiration to me right now 🙂


    • Thank you so much! 🙂 That makes me very happy! I have been into nails for all my life, so I had a lot of time for practice 😉 I also find it very helpful and inspiring to read other nail blogs which I love to do as well. That’s how I learned to do gradients and water marble designs for example. And Youtube tutorials also have become new friends of mine 😉


  3. Hi, I just wanted to give you a heads up that I gave you (and your blog) a shout-out on *my* blog. 🙂 It’s sort of one of those blogger-on-blogger award things (the Shine On Award, to be specific), and if you’re at all interested in participating, please do. But if not, I just wanted you to know regardless that I love swinging by your blog – thanks for giving me something fun to read and stare at every day. 🙂



    • Hey! I am horribly late to respond! I just came across your comment by accident 😦 Oh my … Thank you very much for nominating me for the Shine On Award! I want you to know that I appreciate this a lot! 🙂 Happy Easter to you!


      • Oh my gosh, don’t worry about it – and it totally wasn’t a “demand” that you abide by the rules of the Shine On Award, blah, blah, blah, more just a recognition of other bloggers I like and admire. 🙂 Happy Easter to you, too.
