Parisian chic

Standard

Sometimes when you get new stuff in the mail you get stoked and indecisive and don’t know where to begin, at least I do, but yesterday was the opposite …

I got nail mail from both Über Chic Beauty and Pretty Polish and knew right away what I wanted to create. I received two of the new mini plates from Über Chic (succulents and Paris in Love) and just couldn’t wait using images from the Paris one straight away.

Just look at all the fun, chic and beautiful images. J’adore!

Adidas nails

Standard

It’s been a while since I last published a post. But since I’m having Instagram silence* today I thought I’d post today’s mani here. I think one reason that I stopped blogging was that I thought it was too time consuming but today I posted from my smart phone and it was so easy … so maybe I’ll start writing posts again.

*due to the annonced changes of the Instagram feed a lot of nail artist, including me, are boycotting Instagram for 24 hours.

Valentine’s mani x 2

Standard

Today is February 14th also known as Valentine’s day ❤ and of course I’ve got manis to match the day.

piCture pOlish Scarlett

piCture pOlish “Scarlett”

First I did a mani with piCture pOlish “Scarlett” and “Ripple Ivory” from & other Stories with a stamped heart chain. I used Moyou plate Princess 10 and Scarlett for the stamping.  Cute and very appropriate for Valentine’s.

Cute Valentine’s mani

But when I smudged two nails on my cindy I decided to redo my nails a little bit more edgy but still in the theme of Valentine’s.

Valentine’s mani no. 2

Mani no.2 is made with piCture pOlish “Mad Magenta” and a glitter heart topper from Homei, 2P or “A wish of the princess”.

Homei 2P is such a cute heart shaped glitter topper

Have a great Valentine’s!! ❤ ❤ ❤

 

Geisha nails

Standard

So I called this post “Geisha nails” but actually the water decal isn’t really showing a geisha, I think it’s a traditional picture of a Chinese woman. Sorry about the mix up.

Etude House

Tuesday means textured polish according to some of my nail friends on IG and I try to join them as often as I can. For this week I have a peachy nude textured polish from Korean Etude House. This polish I got in an awesome nail mail from a Japanese friend from IG, I think IG is fantastic, I’ve “met” so many fantastic people there ❤ 

Etude House is a new brand to me, I couldn’t figure out the name of this polish, it has only asian letters on the label 😀 Anyway, it’s a gorgeous peachy nude with some light texture. Two coats is enough and the drying time is fast.

For my accent I decided to try on a cute Geisha water decal I bought from Born Pretty Store. As a base I have two coats of Maybelline Color Show “Grey Beats”. I let the water decal dry a little before I added top coat. I think this design turned out quite nice although this color might suit me a bit better in summer when I’m tanned …
