Silver Twist

Hey guys!

Today I have some simple nail art with a silver twist featuring Cirque Colors Dakota that I got from minta.dk (sponsored).

For the manicure I started off with a nude base of Cirque Colors Dakota on all my nails. Afterwards I stamped the design on my ring finger using MoYou London Trend Hunter 05 and the silver polish Essie No Place Like Chrome.

Swirls

Hey guys!

Today I have some dry marble nail art to share with you!

For the manicure I started off by using the dry marble technique to make some swirls on my Uber nail art mat with piCture pOlish Saphira and piCture pOlish Posey. I added some quick-drying top coat on top off the swirls and transferred them onto my ring and middle finger. Lastly I painted my pinky with the pink piCture pOlish Posey and my pointer and thumb with the dark blue piCture pOlish Saphira.

I love these two polishes together!

Essie Lapiz of Luxury vs Essie Lapiz of Luxury

Hey guys!

A while ago I fell in love with this beautiful cornflower blue polish called Lapiz of Luxury by Essie. I ordered it home from eBay (from an American seller) and it looked nothing like the swatches online - instead it was a dusty lavender polish. I then recently found the polish in Denmark with another color, but the same name? There seems to be more than one version of this polish, with different colors and formula, but the same name.


Essie Lapiz of Luxury vs Essie Lapiz of Luxury.


The two polishes look nothing alike (albeit they are both beautiful).

It has been seen before that Essie have reformulated some of their polishes or that there is a difference in the American and European polishes with the same names. In this case I think it is a reformulation, which is a shame.

Stay polished.

Nail Vinyls Storage

Hey guys!

Today I want to show you how I store my nail vinyls!

Most of my nail vinyls are from Snail Vinyls and Glam My Mani.

I use this adorable, little photo album intended for polaroid pictures to store my nail vinyls. The album is around 10 cm high and found on eBay (I bought it from this link).





I think this is such a smart and cute way to store nail vinyls and stencils. The only down-side is that you have to cut up the sheets to fit into the album.

What do you guys think about this storage idea?

Easter

Hey guys!

Today I have some simple Easter nail art to share with you inspired by @nailsbyic featuring a cute little bunny behind!

For the manicure I started off with a mint green base of OPI That's Hula-rious on all my nails. Afterwards I freehanded the bunny bottom on my ring finger with a small nail art brush and white nail polish. Lastly I added the cute little tail using the light pink polish OPI Mod About You and a small dotting tool.
