I'm am originally from Turku, Finland. Turku is my home town and I love those streets, but Helsinki gave me all the possibilities I needed to become the person I am today. Helsinki is the capital city and the cultural center of Finland. Helsinki is filled with amazing architecture and museums, different events keep people busy. It was a good kind of a culture shock to move from Turku to Helsinki, suddenly I was surrounded with artists and social media, made new awesome friends and important contacts. Helsinki is so busy and I love it!

Step-by-Step Nail Art Tutorial

First I made the cobblestone street, Helsinki is practically build over cobblestone, it is EVERYWHERE and you better watch your feet when you walk. \n\nI started by painting the tips gray and adding balls of gel to represent the stones. I painted the stones and added matte gel top coat in between the stones. I sprinkled nail dust on the matte top coat and then cured it to give it texture.  \n

The statue of Mannerheim is really famous. I build it with hard gel and painted the details with gel polish. It was practical to make the statue two dimensional and layer gel to strategic places, like the arms and horses legs.\n

Cruises are a popular past time activity in Finland. We love to travel to Stockholm (hejsan Celina!) or to Estonia for the weekend. I split the "street" and replaced it with a plate of gel. I painted the plate metallic blue to resemble water. I build the ship over a blue tack mold and painted the details with gel polish. I used a nail art chain attached to gel poles to resemble a handrail.\n

I made the carriages and attached them to the Ferris wheel with wire. I drilled a hole on the plate and added a machine from a musical box to make the wheel spin.
