    Frisch Lackiert Challenge: Mix & Match

    Let's start the week with some mix and match for the Frisch Lackiert Challenge.On the Frisch Lackiert blog it was mentioned, that the idea for this task came from the mix & match stamping plate collection by MoYou London. A perfect excuse to buy some new stamping plates, since I didn't own any of this collection ;-)I started with two coats of Essence Black is Back. For the stamping I used my n...

    Let's start the week with some flakies, shall we?I started with three thin coats of Essie Cocktail Bling, a light grey/blue/lilac creme. On top of Cocktail Bling, I dabbed some ILNP Atlantis.

    Hoodies, Leaves, and S'Mores!

    We had some rain in the last couple of days, but as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, a long heatwave made a lot of trees turn brown or even lose their leaves already. Maybe that's the reason I reached for this gorgeous fall color... Hoodies, Leaves, and S'Mores! by Pahlish has an olive green jelly base and is filled with gold and copper flakie glitters. I used three coats for opactiy and added o...

    After this hot and dry summer, I spent saturday night at an open air concert wishing I wore my winter jacket, it was freezing... So I guess it's time to wear my fall polishes ;-)My base color is ILNP Storytelling. "Storytelling is a sultry dark purple polish thoroughly laced with red shimmers, a kiss of gold flakes, and an incredible array of holographic magic for a beautiful scattered sparkle."...

    Blueprint

    Let's start the week blue, with Emily de Molly Blueprint.Blueprint is a royal blue jelly with blue hex glitters in various sizes plus some purple shimmer. I used three coats, that were wearable, but not 100 % opaque. I used one generous coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top for a smooth finish, due to the glitters, Blueprint dries a little gritty. Emily de Molly polishes are available on Etsy and at th...

    Forest Of The Lawn

    The last few months have been very warm and dry here in Switzerland (and a lot of other places on this planet), so juicy green leaves are not something you see often at the moment. Most trees look more brown than green here. So I painted some green leaves on my nails.My base color is Pahlish Forest Of The Dead, a dark green jelly with green, gold and holographic microglitters. I used three coats f...

    26 Great Nail Art Ideas: Stars

    Stars are this week's challenge theme.My base color is Colors By Llarowe Orion, and the perfect example of what can happen if you're waiting too long with wearing a polish. When I bought this one a couple of years ago (yes, I know, shame on me...), it was a deep purple jelly with lots of silver microglitter. As I read in other blogposts about it, it was opaque with 2-3 coats. When I took my bottle...

    Dance Legend 623 Magnetic

    Today's mani is very simple, but boy, did I love wearing it...I used just one polish, Dance Legend 623 Magnetic. It's a purple shimmer that turns very dark and very light, once you used the magnet. I applied three coats, magnetized a diagonal stripe, one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top, finished.

    Embrace Is Not Enough

    A happy pink glitter topper for monday.My base color is OPI The World Is Not Enough. As a huge James Bond fan, I just had to buy most of their Skyfall collection a couple of years back, but I have to be honest, this polish really disappointed me. While it looks quite interesting in the bottle, it seemed to be a color shifting shimmer, it's just plain boring on the nails. Instead of showing a color...

    Nail Crazies Unite: Sea Creatures

    Sea creatures is this week's challenge theme. I live in a country without sea coast. I've been to the sea a couple of times (Mediterranean Sea, Atlantic, Pacific, Baltic Sea, North Sea. OK, I've seen quite a lot of seas, actually), but the only animals I've seen there are seagulls and seals. But I've seen a lot of sea animals in zoos or aquariums. For this task, I chose a pond mani. I started wit...

    Vanaheim

    Vanaheim by CrowsToes is today's polish. The name might sound like Anaheim in California, home of Disneyland, but actually is one of the spheres in norsk mythology. Vanaheim is a quite interesting polish, a double multichrome. It has a colorshifting shimmer base, shifting from an almost olive green over teal to blue, and is filled with colorshifting glitters shifting from orange over gold and gree...

    26 Great Nail Art Ideas: Least Favourite Color

    The 26 Great Nail Art Ideas ask for my least favourite color today. This one was easy for me, I don't really like oranges, and I really don't care about neons, so I chose a polish I honestly just keep for challenges, I wouldn't wear it otherwise... Black Cat Lacker Sunburned is my base, a neon orange crelly with very subtle flakie shimmer (I think this one might be UV sensitive, in daylight it loo...

    4th Of July

    Happy 4th of july to my American readers! I've got some red, white and blue for your national holiday. For this mani I used Essence Wild White Ways plus blue and red Born Pretty Store stamping polish.

    Nail Crazies Unite: Galaxy/Aliens

    Galaxy or aliens it the prompt for this week's challenge. I've always admired galaxy nails, but never tried them, so I guess, now it's the time. This is my first attempt ever, so please don't judge too harshly...I started with two coats of Essence Black Is Back and added one thin coat of Catrice Have An Ice Day (Million Styles LE) for some holo sparkles. Then I cut a sponge in little peaces and sp...

    Prayers For Rain

    Prayers For Rain is the name of today's polish. We haven't had any rain in the last couple of days here, but it's not so dry that rain would become a urgent need... (I'm sorry that my bottle looks a little disgusting, it somehow got all sticky and I didn't manage to remove all the fluff...)Prayers For Rain has a teal jelly base (as usual, a little more green than my pictures show) filled with blue...
