    Yps lackiert Challenge: Cut Out

    The next theme for the Yps Lackiert Challenge is Cut Out.I don't really like cut out manis, since I don't like the look of my naked nails, but well, a challenge is supposed to be a challenge. I stamped with MoYou London Ruby Red and Moyra stamping plate 11 Damask Drapery directly on my base coat. I fixed the stamping with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top and added one coat of Essence Matt M...

    Yps lackiert Challenge: Monochrom

    Monochrome is the theme for the second round of the Yps Lackiert Challenge. If you follow my blog, then you know that I love monochromatic/ton-sur-ton stamping manis, so this was kind of a home game for me ;-)My base is LynBDesigns Black Dragon Pearl, a grey leaning purple shimmer. I used three coats for opacity. The cloud pattern is on the ÜberChic Far East 01 stamping plate, and as stamping ...

    Yps lackiert Challenge: Herbststimmung

    A new challenge starts today, the Yps lackiert Challenge. The first prompt is Herbststimmung, that roughly translates to autumn mood or atmosphere.I started with a base of gold (L'Oréal Chrome Shine 343), then sponged on the same gold, a light copper (MoYou London Fox Fur), a golden brown (MoYou London It's A Date) and a brownish red (a England Briar Rose). I left the liquid latex on my finger...

    The Force

    May the Force be with you! I don't know if MCK Fresh thought about Star Wars when they where naming this polish, but the big dot glitters do look a little like planets in a dark sky, don't you think?The Force has a really sheer black jelly base, so I layered it over one coat of Essnece Black Is Back. It's filled with lots of glitters, dots, squares, diamonds and microglitters. The glitter color...

    Seriously Sassy

    Seriously Sassy is today's polish by Girly Bits. My camera hated this polish and showed it blue, when in fact it's a cool toned purple jelly with blue and purple glitters, as you can see by the cheap cellphone bottle shot at the end of the post. Somebody tell my why I use my big DSLR for pictures again...?For the stamping I used Barry M. Lilac Foil (again, purple, not blue) and MoYou London Min...

    Flower Road

    Flower Road sounds like spring, but the colors of today's polish definitely call "fall".Flower Road is one of Born Pretty Store's Magnetic Holo Series. They're not really holo, despite their name, but magnetic multichrome shimmers with some flakies. Flower Road shifts from magenta to a golden green.

    When Colours Collide: Yellow, Grey and Brown

    I took a short break from blogging, but not from polishing my nails, so I have a lot of manis to show you. Let's start with the latest round of When Colours Collide with the prompt yellow, grey and brown.Not my favorite combo, to be honest. It has some industrial vibe to me, so I went with a distressed mani. As base I used three coats of Girly Bits Peel Here, a light grey with a subtle silver f...

    Silver Texas Tea

    A blue and silver combo is more winter like, but who says you can't wear in in summer?My base are three coats of Colors by Llarowe Black Gold Texas Tea. The name sounds like a black polish, it looks charcoal in the bottle, but on the nails, it's a navy blue linear holo. For the stamping, I chose a flower pattern from ÜberChic plate 1-02 and the silver holo Color Club Harp On It. One coat of KB...

  • Peacock

    Peacock is the name of today's polish, and it matches the colors perfectly.In the bottle, Peacock looks mostly green, since the green hex glitters are stuck to the bottle.

    Matte Flakies

    Let's start the week with some multichrome flakies.As base I used a deep red creme, Essie Carry On. The flakie topper is Nfu Oh 51 (don't you hate it when polishes don't have names, only numbers?). It looks mostly red in the bottle (that's why I chose the red base), but it also shifts over orange and green to blue, almost the whole rainbow. I haven't worn a matte mani in a while and I love matt...

    1. August Mani

    Last thursday was the Swiss national holiday, and as every year, I wore my nails accordingly.I went for a quick and easy holiday mani. Just three coats of Cult Nails Bitten, a cherry red with flakie shimmer, and a distressed white cross I painted with the almost dry brush of my Born Pretty Store white stamping polish. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top and the mani was finished.

    Watcher On The Walls is today's polish of Glimmer by Erica's Game of Thrones collection.Watcher On The Walls has a sheer black jelly base filled with silver and aqua hexes, silver microglitter and big silver holographic dots.

    Aurora Borealis

    I live way too much south to actually see the Aurora Borealis, but at least I can wear it on my nails...Aurora Borealis is the name of this polish of the Born Pretty Store Aurora Magnetic Series. It's a beautiful multichrome shifting from teal over blue and purple to pink (and it's very camera shy, it wont show the shift too much in my pictures. The last picture probably shows it best). So the ...
