It’s still winter here in Finland and I can’t wait for spring to get here. I always get so much energy from spring. Days will be longer and there’s more sunlight. So now I also felt like using some bright colors on my nails too.
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.
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.
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…)
Today’s Polishers Inc. theme was Safe and Sound aka my comfort zone manicure. For me the bright red polish is always a safe choice. I love red nails and red looks great with my skin tone. I also love to use studs and rhinestones. They are so quick and easy to use and nearly impossible to mess up.
For this manicure I used a coat of Essie Nourish Me, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two coats of Delush Polish Glam Squad and HK Girl top coat. I also used different sized clear rhinestones plus black and silver studs for these nails.
Don’t forget to check out the links at the bottom of the post and show some love for the other lovely ladies in this group :)
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!
