Fall appropriate floral manicure

6

I’ve been wanting to do a nude with black nail art manicure for a while now. At first I was thinking about stamping lace pattern on my nails but that design is all over the place now. Then I considered free hand lace with roses. Didn’t like how that looked. After that I just took my Mosaic M brush and Oumaxi black acrylic paint and started practising wavy lines. Somehow those turned into these flowers and I really liked how they ended up looking. On some parts the black looked too solid and after the paint was dry I took a needle and scratched some of the paint away.

The base is two coats of  Delush Polish In Nude We Trust from the Nue Collection. I believe this is a discontinued shade and it’s now been sold for a discounted price. In Nude We Trust is a very pretty shimmery metallic nude that was easy to apply and dried quickly. Rhinestones are from Konad wheel and matte top coat is from Born Pretty Store.

 

 

***Matte top coat was gifted to me. All the other products mentioned were purchased by me. I don’t benefit from clicking any of the links on this post.

Polishers Inc. – Glitter Gradient

0

Hello, hello! I’m coming out from my crazy blog post editing madness (still getting my blog ready for the move) for this lovely Polishers Inc. Sunday. Today’s theme is glitter gradient and instead of doing a regular glitter gradient with polishes I decided to do the gradient using loose glitters instead.

The black base is Essie Licorice and for the glitters I used some cheap eBay glitters (three different colors) and I attached them to my nails using ScraPerfect Best Glue ever. Ohh, you guys, I really need to do a video tutorial of using this glue cos it makes using pigments, foils and loose glitters so much easier and FUN!

Polishers Inc. – What’s On TV?

3

This Sunday’s Polishers Inc. theme was “What’s On TV?” and that means this manicure is inspired by a TV show.

I had a hard time deciding what to do. I was thinking about shows like Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead. In the end I decided to go with a show that me and hubby are currently watching and enjoying, Big Bang Theory. It’s just so funny and puts me in a good mood every time. Sheldon is such a brilliant character and in real life Jim Parsons is a fellow Houston Texans fan! (more…)

Polishers Inc. – Negative space

Happy Polishers Inc. Sunday everyone! Since I literally have just a few mins to write this post I’ll make a long story short. This manicure looked so much better in my head but since I didn’t have a very good day today and I did this mani at the last possible moment I didn’t have time to redo it. So this is what you get for my negative space manicure this Sunday. (more…)

Polishers Inc. – My Cinderella Hand

20

Happy Sunday! I’ve missed last two Polishers Inc. Sundays cos of the kids being sick. But now I’m back and today’s theme was “My Cinderella Hand”. So basically do what ever you want on your cinderella hand meaning your other hand you never show on camera.

For me that is my right hand. Doing nail art on my right hand wasn’t a problem really. I do that all the time. Photographing it, now that’s another story LOL Weird poses and finger positions. Sitting on the wrong side of the camera. Everything was so difficult for me. It’s not like I’ve never taken photos of my right hand, cos I have. It just felt like I haven’t. Nevertheless I got something done and the photos taken.

When I hear Cinderella I think of princesses, diamonds and pretty, girly things so that is where I decided to go with this theme.

 

 

 

For this manicure I used Jindie Nails Pink Stilettos, Essie Sugar Daddy on my middle finger, Moo Moo’s Signatures Diamond on my ring finger. The stamping is done with Rica Whiteout and hehe 018 stamping plate. I also added some Swarovskis. Top coat is of course Glisten & Glow HK Girl.

That’s all from me this Sunday but be sure to check out the other ladies and their cinderella hands. You can find the links below.
