Pink and bling nails

4

Hello, hello, hello! (I’ve been binge watching RuPaul’s Drag Race while being sick with kidney infection and that thing is no joke, let me tell you that). Since I was feeling too sick to even open my laptop for several days it’s taken me much longer than I planned to post these nails. I already showed you this design on my IG though. So here are the details of what I used for this manicure.

Polishers Inc. – So 90’s!

16

Polishers Inc. Sunday is here again! Today’s theme is “So 90’s!”. First thing that came to mind was Nirvana and grunge but I decided to do something bright and fun instead and got inspiration from early 90’s crazy clothing and colors.

Index and middle finger nails are done with a little help from NailVinyls. Ring and and pinky nail have slices cut out of dried watermarble sheet.

Base color is Essie Licorice. Other colors used are OPI Hey Baby, OPI Live.Love.Carnaval, OPI Where Did Suzi’s Man-Go?, OPI I Just Can’t Cope-Acapana, China Glaze Def Defying and Color Club Wicker Park. Shine is provided by Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat.

That’s all from me this time and please don’t forget to check what the other ladies have come up with this week. You can find the links at the end of this post. Thank you for reading!

 

 

 

Valentine’s Day nail art

6

Here’s a manicure that made me wish I was skilled enough to kick myself ;) I can’t even begin to understand why I thought it would be a great idea to attach countless tiny pearls on my nails :D I was ready to throw the pearls out the window after the first heart. Instead I decided to be a woman about it and finish what I started. And oh how much fun that was…

Base color is Color Club Wicker Park. Hearts are done with Color Club Hot Like Lava. I painted three coats on a ziploc bag. Let it dry completely and then used a heart shaped hole puncher to cut out the hearts. I used HK Girl on top of Wicker Park and the polish hearts. I used top coat to attach the micro-pearls and rhinestones.

 

 

 

 

***Wicker Park was sent for review. Hot Like Lava, rhinestones and micro pearls were purchased by me.  HK Girl was gifted to me.

Lynnderella – The One Who Got Away

0

Yay me! For getting another blog post up today LOL

This is Lynnderella The One Who Got Away from the Summer 2013 “Once upon a Prince and other ManCandy” collection. Here’s how it’s described on the Lynnderella website “The One Who Got Away is full of assorted black and bright coloured glitter in matte and satin finishes. Microglitter accents in a clear base”.

This is one generous coat of The One Who Got Away over Color Club Wicker Park and finished with G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

This one has a very good formula too. The glitter comes out of the bottle just fine without extra tricks. Application is even and smooth. No need to place the glitters too much. I only slightly moved the biggest ones if they landed on the edge of the nail. I just love the colorful micro-glitter this has. It gives this polish a certain cuteness factor and some sparkle :)

Lynnderella – Opal Intuition

6

Happy Saturday! I hope everyone’s having a great weekend. Today I have another Lynnderella review for you. This is Opal Intuition from the Talismans and Birthstones collection. This has a lot of iridescent glitter and holographic micro-glitter in a sheer shimmer base. The base is blue toned. This can be layered on any basecolor you want to. I tested this over baby blue and black cremes. So let’s see what it looks like.

This is two coats of Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau, two coats of Opal Intuition and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

And here is a coat of Color Club Where’s The Soiree?, two coats of Opal Intuition and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

Opal Intuition has a good, a bit gel like formula that applies well. As you can see, two different base colors make it look like two completely different polishes. Personally I prefer this over the black base. It really glows and black brings out the beautiful blue shimmer. Either way this is a real beauty!

Today is the day nail community and nail bloggers want to honor and show their love for an amazing little girl that passed away, Talia Joy Castellano. Thank you Nail Polish Wars for this lovely idea!

Talia was a shining example of courage and strength. Despite of her long battle with cancer she was such a happy person and had an enormous amount of talent. Her videos and her legacy will live on.

We can all learn a precious lesson of how to live your life from Talia Joy ♥

Here’s my mint mani for Talia Joy. I used China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On and Color Club Angel Kiss with HK Girl top coat to create this look.

Glam Polish – Star Candy (Mei Mei’s Signatures exclusive)

6

Hello again :) Today ended up being another two posts day. I have so many cool polishes to review and show you that I think there will be a few two posts days ahead.

This time I have a fun and bright glitter topper from Glam Polish. This neon explosion is Mei Mei’s Signatures exclusive and you can’t buy it anywhere else. Star Candy has different shapes and sizes of glitter in several neon colors. It’s bright and fun and can be layered over a lot of different base colors. I chose two different ones to try it with.

First I layered it over Delush Polish It Takes Two To Mango. This is two coats of Star Candy and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

 

Second I tried it over a black creme cos I really wanted the colors to pop out. This is a coat of Color Club Where’s The Soiree?, two coats of Star Candy and G & G HK Girl top coat.

 

Application was very good and glitters came out of the bottle easily. Formula is a little thin and runny but as long as you make sure not to have too much polish on the brush it applies just perfectly.

This can be bought from Mei Mei’s Signatures along with a lot of other goodies. Service is always great and friendly. Shipping has always been fast but this time it was super fast, five days from Singapore to Finland. Excellent if you ask me!

ABC Challenge – Q is for quilted manicure

28

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone :) Today it’s time for the letter Q on our weekly ABC challenge and this was a tough one. I had hard time finding a polish that starts with a Q. Those that I found, I didn’t care for too much and I didn’t want to waste money on a bottle of polish that I don’t really want just because the name starts with a right letter ;) So I decided to do a quilted manicure. I’m not sure if this really counts as quilted mani but that’s what I’m calling it to get this darn letter over and done with.

As a base I used a coat of Color Club’s Where’s The Soiree? black creme and HK Girl fast drying top coat. Then I taped the pattern and applied two coats of OPI Bond Girls Liquid Sand shade Jinx. Removed the tapes right after and let the mani dry. Could’ve done a better job with this one but I was in a hurry and just needed to get something done. Either way, I liked how this looked IRL and I LOVE Jinx! It is stunning!

Please go visit all the other lovely ladies on this challenge and see what they are up to this week :)
