“True Blood” Lilypad Lacquer

Today I have yet another gorgeous holo from Lilypad Lacquer to show you. This time it’s a vampy dark plum shade. Oh, so beautiful especially when the light hits the nails and the gorgeous holo shows ❤

Sadly this shade is discontinued/LE so the only chance you have to get your hands on this beauty is a destash or on Ebay etc. But if you come accross it I definitely recomend you to buy it!!

Two easy coats, and perfect finish like every other shade from Lilypad Lacquer I’ve tried. I enjoyed this shade a lot when I wore it.

Lilypad Lacquer “Molten Minx”

I’m very fond of nudish gray/brown colors and this is a very good example of my taste! This is Lilypad Lacquer “Molten Minx”, a holographic polish that’s grayish brown/bronze and very beautiful. Two easy coats and top coat – good to go! I bought this from Edgy Polish who’s a new stockist of this Australian indie brand.  Read the rest of this entry

“Electric Dream” from piCture pOlish is a bright candy pink that goes perfectly with the pink Crazy sours Skittles 😀  2 coats are enough IRL but I see now for the pictures it would have been better with 3 coats.

A new nail shape

Of course I couldn’t leave my mani plain so I re-did my ring finger with “Coral Reef” as a base and added a cyclone vinyl from Twinkled T and a coat of “Holiday” on top. All polishes are from piCture pOlish.

Holiday is a gorgeous holo glitter/flakie topper that adds sparks to every mani 🙂

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted as much lately but it’s been crazy busy at work and I haven’t really got the time to write blog posts, but if you follow me on Instagram you could see my daily manis there at least. You can find me as @nillanpillan 😉

A England “Dancing with Nureyev”

As an old ballet dancer and a ballet lover it’s natural that I love everything ballet themed and this stunning blue holographic polish from A England’s collection Ballerina is no exception.

“Dancing with Nureyev” is a violet-blue shade, a soft romantic blue yet very sophisticated and very suitable to a ballet theme. Depending on the lighting the shade looks violet or blue and the scattered/prismatic holo particles give another dimension to the polish.

A romantic and elegant violet-blue

The formula is stunning, as all polishes from A England. This is two coats, but I think you could get away with only one if you apply it a little thicker.

To emphasize the romantic feeling I’ve added a little stamping on my ring fingers, the swirly tree pattern is from Moyou Mother Nature 11 and I used Mentality “Opaque White”.

Stamping with Mentality Opaque White and Moyou Mother Nature 11

Mentality “Opaque White” is a white stamping polish that’s pearlescent or a bit on the silver side and not that matte white I’m used to with stamping polishes. I think it gives the stamping a very elegant feel to it.

Matches my distressed jeans perfectly!
