Feel The (Glitter) Breeze...


Hi!

I already felt like using some Spring colors, so today I have this manicure to show you:


China Glaze Feel The Breeze and on the accentfinger Essie Hors d'Oeuvres.


 
Feel The Breeze is a gorgeous pink creme which applied very easily in two opaque coats. Hors d'Oeuvres is a very special metallic glitter polish which contains silver and gold glitters. I'm wearing three coats here to get it fully opaque.



It's taking some time before Spring is here, but I already felt it a little by wearing this mani :)

Thanks for watching!

China Glaze Textured Unrefined

Hi girls,

Today I'm wearing China Glaze Unrefined from the Textured collection...




I really like textured nailpolishes... I also have two textured polishes from Barry M (click here), but this polish has a bit more of a gritty texture than the Barry M polishes have. Their texture is a bit more fine...



I actually really like Unrefined because I like this texture better than Barry M's because it's a bit more rough...

And the colour is awesome! I'm a real girly-girl and a pink-lover ♥

I'm wearing two coats here with ofcourse no topcoat to keep it gritty and matte...


Recently, I bought a couple more textured polishes from OPI en Essence, which I will swatch later.

What are your thoughts of textured/sanding polishes? Do you like them or not?

Thanks for watching!

China Glaze VII

Hi!

Here I'm wearing an older polish from China Glaze, called VII from the Anniversary X Collection of 2007.

 China Glaze VII


VII is a brownish dark plum colour which sometimes (in some lighting) looks deep brown. I find it very classy. I'm wearing two coats here but if you're careful enough you can get away with one coat; it's very opaque. I also ♥ the fact that it is very glossy. Even after wearing it for a week it stays glossy!
How it that possible!?

I recently ordered VII with 50% discount (for about €3) and I really love this polish!


Although is is springtime in the Netherlands, the sun doesn't show up much and that's the reason I've painted my nails in a way darker colour than I normally would in this time of year.

Are you wearing springcolours yet?

Thanks for stopping by!

Flip flop...

Hi girls,

Sorry I'm neglecting my blog a bit lately... I'm very busy with packing, because we're moving out soon...

So I'm using my sparetime wisely and that means that I don't have much time to do my nails and photograph them... But today I have some snapshots from China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy for you:


Excuses my dry cuticles, my hands are having a hard time because of all the hard work...

China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy is a neon orange polish which dries matte... Application was a bit of a pita; streaky and when I applied the 2nd layer, the 1st layer dissolved a bit... Very strange! But finally it pretty much has evened out when I applied 2 coats of my favorite topcoat (INM Out The Door). I could have applied 3 coats, so it would have turned out more opaque, but I was a bit tired and wanted to go to bed, so I decided to go with 2...


As you might know, it's always hard to capture neon colours on camera...
So irl the colour is much, much brighter then showed here...

Why is it so hard to capture neons? Does anybody have a clue?


Thanks for stopping by!

My first gradient manicure!

Hi girls!

I'm a bit late, I know, but after seeing all those beautiful gradient manicures, I started to wonder if I was able to do such a pretty manicure myself...

Let's take a look...


Basecolor: Color Club Where's The Soirée
Sponging color: China Glaze Recycle
Topcoat: INM Out The Door

China Glaze Recycle + Color Club Where's The Soirée



I was surprised about the result and  how easy it is to achieve this look! :)

I'm very happy with the result and can't wait to try this with other colors!

What do you think about this first try?

Guppy #12 layered with Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple

Hi girls!

Here's the Guppy/CUDDV polish #12 again, but now layered with Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple:


Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple has mainly orange and green holo glitter in it.
This are two coats layered over the black Guppy (CUDDV) Sanding Fruit Extract #12 which I showed you here.


This picture shows the green holo glitters better... I ♥ the look of the glitter in this angle better.


Hmmm... I think it's nice to experiment a bit with layering, but I don't think it's really my cup of tea.

So I experimented a bit more:


Hey! See those blue glitters? I didn't notice them before...?
I mattified this manicure with two coats of China Glaze Matte Magic and tadaaa...


I probably layered a bit too much at the time, because see what happened with my ringfinger and pinky?
The polishlayers started to lift!


I like this version better then the shiny version...

But still... I don't like it enough to wear it this way. So I'm going to take it off... :)

Which version do you like more?

Thanks for watching!

Ruffian Manicure & 100th post!

Hi girls!

This is my 100th post! Yeeey!

Today I want to show you my version of a Ruffian Manicure...


Basecolor: China Glaze 2030
Topcolor: Wet 'n Wild Black Crème


I'm a bit embarrased about my nails... They're SO short! During my sickness they started to break and I couldn't do anything about it...


So yeah... Here are my little nubbins :(


I think I like this manicure... In real life it looks better than upclose, but for the first time, I think it's ok :)
Don't you?

What do you think about Ruffian Manicures? Would you wear it?

Thanks for watching!

Awaken Pepperoni + XL B

Hi girls!

Hope you're all doing ok.
At the moment I'm sick (yes, AGAIN!) so I'll keep this post short...




Basecolor: H&M Wanna Pepperoni (1 coat)
Stamping color: China Glaze Awaken
Stamping plate: XL B
Topcoat: Essence Nail Art Sealing Topcoat




This is one of the XL plates I've bought from MagnoNails quite a while ago, and I have hardly used it, so I wanted to try some of the designs on top of Wanna Pepperoni...


I don't really like the way Awaken turned out on Wanna Pepperoni, so I already removed it and stamped a different design on with a darker stampingcolor...

Curious? You'll see it soon...

Thanks for watching!

Shopping: OPI, China Glaze, Revlon, Essence, Catrice, BornPrettyStore, Guppy... and more!

Hi girls!

Hope you're doing ok? Fortunately I'm feeling better and getting back to work tomorrow...

Today I would like to show you some of the stuff I've bought this month.

Ready?


From Essence 2 bottles of nailpolish remover in Strawberry and Coconut scent (always better than the real smell :) )


From BornPrettyStore two fauxnad Konad plates, numbers m66 and m76...

BornPrettyStore m66

BornPrettyStore m76
I haven't tried their plates out yet, but I've read some good reviews about them. I compared them a bit with the real Konad plates and I think they look pretty much the same.
These plates were on sale for $1,55!


Nothing special, just two pump bottles which I like to use for my removers. Also from BornPrettyStore.


From Catrice 3 polishes from left to right: Poison Me, Poison You!, After Eight and Dirty Berry.


From Essence 2 more bottles of Nail Art Sealing Topcoat, (a back up bottle of) Special Effect Topper Circus Confetti, Special Effect Topper Hello Holo and From BornPrettyStore some apple scented nailpolish remover wipes (which I don't like... The scent is ok, but they just don't do the job well enough!)


From Essence 7 Colour & Go polishes (I forgot photographing one!) from left to right:

66 Shiny Godness
33 Just In Case
72 Time For Romance
77 In Style
55 Let's Get Lost
78 Blue Addicted
(85 Galactic Black, not on the pictures)


I'm not sure, but I think Catrice's After Eight and Essence In Style look a bit the same... Anyone know if they do irl?


From OPI 3 polishes from left to right: Moon Over Mumbai, My Private Jet (brownish), Royal Rajah Ruby.


I know there are many girls who find OPI is a bit overrated and highly overpriced, but I think their polishes are great. They have such nice collections and colours! I'm willing to pay that price anyway :)


From Guppy (or CUDDV, whatever the name is) 2 Sanding Fruit Extract polishes, in numbers 14 and 16.
They are unbelievable large! I don't think I've had such large bottles (16 ml!) before.
I saw number 17 on Nihrida's blog and got immediately interested in the finish of this polish. Had to try it myself! :)


And 4 other polishes. From left to right: H&M Moody Model, Revlon 092 Blue Lagoon, China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metallic in Tarnished Gold, en last but not least a very neon pink crackle polish from Laushine (again from BornPrettyStore).


And two small brushes from BornPrettyStore which I'm going to use as eyeliner brushes.

That was about it...

See anything you like? Want to see swatches? Let me know...


Goodnight!
