    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. I started with one coat of the white polish, than painted some of it on my ÜberMat, added some red and blue dots, mixed all with a toothpick and transferred the polish on my nails using a stamper. O...

    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...

    26 Great Nail Art Ideas: Graffiti

    Graffiti is this week's challenge theme. I love good street art and usually take pictures if I see something I like, bot honestly, most graffitis are just one colored smudges done in a couple of seconds, right?! And since I'm not really an artist, I went with the kind of graffiti you see most (not the four letter words, though. OK, one four letter word, but a nice one...), not the one that really ...

    Nail Crazies Unite: Lisa Frank Inspired

    Today, the Nail Crazies Unite want so see a Lisa Frank inspired mani. Honestly, I had to google who Lisa Frank is, and basically, she is an artist using a lot of bright colors, glitter and cute animals. I can do that ;-) Ok, I admit, my mani looks nothing like Lisa Frank's art, but after the third try of getting the background just like I wanted, I lost my nerves and left it the way it was... I us...
