    It has been raining the last couple of days here in Switzerland, and nature really embraces the much needed water (I don't like the weather too much, but nature's needs are more important...). So with all the green spreading around, some green on my nails, too. As base I used three coats of Born Pretty Store Nirvana (Melody Life Series), a leafy green creme.My glitter topper is Penélope Luz L...

    Reverse stamping is today's challenge prompt.I really love portuguese azulejo, those blue ceramic tile art, so I went for a white and blue pattern with the MoYou London Porcelain Collection plate 04 and white Born Pretty Store stamping polish. I filled the tiles with three shades of blue (MoYou London Chill Out, Barry M. Indigo and Essie Bobbing For Baubles) directly on my stamper and applied i...

    When Colours Collide: Multichrome

    Again a challenge mani, today for the latest round of When Colours Collide, that ended last sunday. The prompt was duo- or multichrome.My duochrome polish is Girly Bits Shift Happens, a beautiful shift from green to red. This one is too sheer to be worn alone, so I layered two coats over a very dark green creme (two coats of Essie Stylenomics). I just love the more "coarse" look of this topper,...

    Gold Rock

    Something more colorful for today.As base I used three coats of Essie School Of Hard Rock, a teal creme with grey undertones. I was so sure I had already shown this one, so I didn't take a swatch picture. But I found out I only used it in a nail art post where you can't really see it on it's own...On the base I dabbed one coat of Lumina Lacquer Gold Dust Woman, a clear based glitter topper with...

    When Colours Collide: Pastels

    Pastels only were the prompt for the latest round of When Colours Collide.I started with three coats of Essie Chillato. Essie call this color a pistachio green, but in my eyes, it clearly is a pastel yellow with just slight green undertones.  I really love the water marble look, but I just suck at this technique, so I cheated a little using Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-XL210 and MoYou Lond...

    Bulletproof Symphony

     Bulletproof Symphony is the name of today's polish.This is a quite interesting polish. From a distance, it looks quite subtle, almmost a little boring. But there's so much going on, as you can see in the macro shot. It has a sheer purple base and is filled with myriads of gunmetal flakies and silver holo sparkles. On the nail, it looks more taupe than purple or grey. The base is too sheer to ...

    After the somewhat dark and gloomy mani on monday, some more vivid colors for today.I started with three coats of Girly Bits Get Weaponized, a vivid aqua/turquoise holo with tiny purple glitters in it.

    When Colours Collide: Blue

    The latest round of When Colours Collide ended over a week ago, but I have to admit, I was just too lazy to edit all the pictures in time... But now I'm ready, here's my all blue mani.I went for a splatter mani, a really fun technique, but it's important to protect yourself and your environment with this one. So use tape, cuticle protection and a silicone mat (or an old newspaper) if you don't ...

    St. Patrick's Day is over, but it's never too late for green manis, right?My base is three coats of Zoya Envy, a very dark green jelly. On top of Envy, I dabbed one coat of ILNP Success, a clear based flakie topper, shifting from various shades of green to pink.
