Maniology Holly Jolly stamping starter kit

Get your nails ready for the festive season with Maniology’s Holly Jolly stamping starter kit. The kit includes two festive stamping plates, stamping polishes Confetti and Frosty and limited edition Holiday Monocle stamper & scraper.

I really like the products in this kit, the monocle stamper is my go-to stamper. It’s see-through, it’s short (which makes it perfect when coloring in images when reverse stamping), it’s squishy and always picks up images perfectly!

How cute are the animal ornaments on M078? I had such a hard time choosing which ones to use for my design. And M079 has everything you need for your New Year’s Eve mani!

UberChic Beauty Fall launch week 2019

Hi everyone, today I have something exciting to share with you! UberChic Beauty is launching a bunch of new products (not only stamping plates) that will be available August 31 (today!). To make things fun they showed previews of a new product each day leading up to the release day.

Keep scrolling to see all products being released this week, my swatches and nail art plus info about an awesome launch offer!

Day 1: Hello fall & pumpkin spice

Skärmavbild 2019-08-27 kl. 10.50.37

Hello fall & pumpkin spice is a perfect fall stamping plate! I love all the lettering images, and you can either use them on their own, combine them with some of the other images on the plate (like the cups or pumpkins) or why not use them together with fall favorite stamping plate Lovely leaves or even some fall themed nail vinyls.

Day 2: Football is life

Skärmavbild 2019-08-28 kl. 12.03.39

Fotball is life is an American football themed stamping plate. Not being American I don’t know much about football, but then again I’m not very interested in sports, so maybe I wouldn’t have even if I was American. Anyway, I’m sure that this plate will be appreciated by football fans and be perfect for Super Bowl nails!

Day 3: Limited edition holo nail polish

Ghouls just wanna have fun and Electric Pumpkin are UberChic’s first ever nail polishes! Both polishes are 7-free and cruelty free! These are limited edition, so once they sell out they won’t be re-made. In the pictures below I’m wearing two coats plus top coat.

Day 4: Lovely leaves 4

Skärmavbild 2019-08-29 kl. 18.03.07

Lovely leaves 4 is the newest addition to the Lovely leaves family. The plate consists of a bunch of leaf patterns, a cute fox, some fun sayings and layerable leaves. Lovely leaves are my go-to stamping plates for fall, so I’m so happy to see this new addition!

Day 5: Halloween 5

Skärmavbild 2019-08-30 kl. 18.36.11

The Halloween series gets a new addition, Halloween 5, and this stamping plate is a must for any Halloween enthusiasts! We don’t really celebrate Halloween in Sweden and I don’t dress up, but I do love making Halloween themed nails during October. So I think you will be seeing more of this plate in the near future.

What are your thoughts on this epic fall launch? Will you be getting any of these products? My favorites among these products are Hello fall & pumpkin spice and Lovely leaves 4!

All products will be available at 10am MST (18:00 CET) and they will have a site wide sale for three days! Until Sept 2 you get 15% off all products on their website using the code HAPPYFALLYALL.

ManixMe August | Mosaic

Today I’m going to show you Maniology’s August ManixMe box, and for those of you who haven’t heard of it before – it is a monthly nail art subscription box! Each month has a different theme and the box consists of 2 exclusive stamping plates, 2 stamping polishes plus a surprise gift (e.g. a brush, stickers, foil, powder). There’s also an express kit version that consists of 2 stamping plates plus a surprise gift. With your first box or kit you get a free stamper and scraper set ($10 value).

Get $5 off your first ManixMe box using the code Hanninator10 (the code also gives you 10% off all regular priced items on www.maniology.com)

August’s Mosaic themed box is inspired by Middle Eastern art and architecture. I love Moroccan/Arabesque patterned nails, so I was really excited to get this box.

For my first design I used both polishes, the nail foil, and one of the plates included in the box. I probably wouldn’t have chosen this color combination if these polishes had not been a part of the box – but I’m so loving it and it’s giving me fall vibes! I also used Coconut from Maniology as my base polish for this design.

For my second look I used the other stamping plate and colors that I would have typically used for tiled inspired nail art. I’m going to be honest, the finished design did not turn out like I had in mind, but I still like it! For this design I used Maui Gold, Ducky and Blue glue all from Maniology.

Since the August box is no longer available I though I’d give you a peek of September’s Hocus Pocus themed box. I hope I will be able to create some looks with the September box while it’s still available, but unfortunately international shipping is very unpredictable and takes some time… sometimes way longer than it should.

CND ‘Yes I Do’ Bridal collection

Hello everyone, long time, no see! Today I’ll be showing you CND’s new bridal collection called Yes I do. As with most bridal collection, this one consists of sheer white and pink toned polishes that are very wedding appropriate.

Forever yours is a pink polish. Here I’m wearing three coats.

20190509_165716511_iOS20190509_165747039_iOS

These types of shades are not really my go to types of shades, but for a wedding I think they’re perfect! I also think that the two nude pink polishes will make a great nude base for nail art. In fact I’ve already used Veiled for just that.

What do you think of this collection? Do you like sheer nude polishes?

Aspen tree nails + video tutorial

Hi everyone! Autumn is slowly approaching (at least in Sweden) and the leaves on the trees have started to change color. Even though I prefer summer I’m kind of looking forward to the new season. It’s so beautiful when the leaves change color and start to fall from trees. One more thing I like about fall is the fall themed nail art! I love making leaf nail art designs.

Today I’m going to share with you my first leaf nail art for the season and I hope you like them as much as I do!


The base for this design is Essie Midnight sun and I stamped the threes using UberChic Beauty’s new Lovely leaves 3 stamping plate together with Glow upVibin’LitSauceySubtweet and No filter from Twinkled T. I finished off the design with my new favorite matte top coat from Glisten & Glow (called Matte top coat). Their Matte top coat instantly became a favorite because it dries very matte and it doesn’t dry streaky like some matte top coats tend to do.


I always have a hard time deciding between glossy or matte finish, so I had to take photos of the glossy version too! Which do you prefer, matte or glossy?

Check out the video tutorial for this design below!

I Love Nail Polish

Recently I was sent some gorgeous polishes from ILNP (short for I Love Nail Polish). ILNP is an indie polish maker from Las Vegas, Nevada, and they specialize in super sparkly holographic and color shifting ultra chrome polishes. All their polishes are cruelty free, vegan and 3-free!

Let’s take a look at the polishes I received.

Have you tried any polishes from ILNP?

UberChic Beauty Moroccan Beauty

A while ago UberChic Beauty released Moroccan Beauty, a stamping plate with Moroccan themed patterns.

Morrocan-Beauty__39467.1529197431

Moroccan patterned nails was one of my favorite designs to make when I first stared doing nail art, and it still is (I just don’t do them as much now because I have so many other thing I want to make – oh the struggle). Back when I got in to nail art I only had Moroccan nail vinyls so I could pretty much only change the color combinations. With this plate there are so many more options for Moroccan nail art designs!

So far I’ve made three nail art designs with this stamping plate and I know that many more will come in the future.

20180729_120012070_iOS

The first design I made using this stamping plate is inspired by Moroccan tiles, and I love how it turned out! Since there are many small details it took some time to fill in the images. So it’s not a design that you make everyday, but I do enjoy it when I have the time. It is a bit like a coloring book, except I color in stamped images and put them on my nails!

20180802_132010625_iOS

20180817_161649256_iOS

The second and third designs are both stamped over gradients. I chose patterns with a lot of open spaces to let the gradients shine trough.

What nail art design you you make with this plate? Please let me know in the comments!
