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.

Flower nails

Standard

I have a lot of stamping plates but rarely use them 😦 so I’ve decided to do more stamped manicures in 2015. Practise makes perfect, doesn’t it?!?

For this manicure I’ve used Crows Toes “L’il miss Sunshine”, Chick Pick Polish “Golden Meadow”, a little China Glaze “Fairy Dust” (just one thin coat over green “Golden Meadow”) as a base and then stamped it with OPI “Do you have this color in Stock-holm?” . The stamping plate I used is Princess 01 from Moyou and I chose a flower pattern.

Crows Toes “L’il Miss Sunshine” is a beautiful purple shimmer polish with Microsoft flakes/shimmer that shifts in green, silver and violet blue. I have three coats on my pictures.

Chick Pick Polish “Golden Meadow” is a warm golden to olive green chrome polish. Two coats plus one thin coat of China Glaze “Fairy Dust” to add a little sparkle to match the purple.

I think this mani turned out to be very spring-like, I think of tulips when I see my nails and I just love tulips!

Spring emotions :)

A spring-like mani in the wait for spring, yes I wait for spring as early as January 😉

Finally a picture without flash, a bit dark but you see different colors ...

You can buy Crows Toes from many shops, this bottle I bought from Harlow & Co. Chick Pick Polish is only available from Kari’s shop. This particular bottle I’ve got for review/swatch.
