Wikkid Polish

Hi there! In the end of last year I was sent some polishes from U.K. indie brand Wikkid Polish to try. Since it’s March now I am a very late with this post, and that’s a shame because these polishes are too pretty to not have been used. I was very busy in December making Christmas manis and in the beginning of January I had many planned weekends and little time for nails. Now I’ve finally had some time to catch up with some things that’s been waiting to be used, including these polishes. So let’s take a look at some swatches of these beauties!

I also did some nail art using four of the polishes, 0341, 0342, 0344 and 0345. I haven’t done a water marble design in forever so I’m very happy to see that it turned out this good.

UberChic Beauty Welcome spring

Hello guys! I don’t know about you, but I’m really longing for spring to arrive. Last week we had some really cold weather (around -13°C) so I can’t wait for warmer weather.

Last Friday UberChic Beauty released a new spring themed stamping plate called Welcome spring. The plate is full of beautiful floral and Easter themed images and a few of the them are layered. With this plate at least my nails can be in spring mode in this snowy weather!

img_2963

The first design I made with this plate are these cute cherry blossom nails. I started with a white to pink gradient before stamping the cherry blossoms over it. Nothing says spring more than cherry blossoms and I can’t wait for them to start blooming!

img_3079

Another flower that reminds me of spring are tulips, I love having a bouquet at home during spring. What polish is better than Kiss me on my tulips from OPI for a tulip design?

img_3241

I had to use one of the Easter themed images on the plate and chose to stamp these cute Easter eggs over a gradient.

Check out the tutorials for these manis here; Cherry blossoms, Tulips and Easter egg gradient.

Here I’m wearing two coats of 5066 Buy me a unicorn (creme) and 5070 Miss tinkerbell (holo). This is my favorite pair from the collection, just look at that beautiful pink holo!

I really, really like this collection and I love that Depend made matching creme and holo polishes. It’s perfect if you want an accent nail or make nail art in matching tones. I would have loved to have a purple pair in this collection, let’s hope we get to see more holo polishes in this formula from Depend in the future!

 

BeautyBigbang Stamping polish

Hello guys! Today I will show you a bunch of stamping polishes* that I received from BeautyBigbang a few weeks ago.
I get a lot of questions about stamping and one thing that I have found that really helped me is switching to stamping polish! You can stamp with regular polish too, but not all polishes work, and they are definitely not as opaque as stamping polish. I also find that stamping polish is a lot easier to pick up from the plate. So, if you have trouble stamping, I suggest you invest in some stamping polish. And for $3,59 per bottle these stamping polishes are a pretty good deal!

img_2058

I used the same stamping plate for all the swatches, it’s also from BeautyBigbang and you can find it here. Now, let’s take a look at how these polishes look stamped over black and white.

20180203_180248606_iOS

White stamping polish 007, SKU: J6415TM-7A. I’m super impressed with how well it covers over black! No milky white polish here, as you can see it’s super opaque!

20180203_180535930_iOS

20180203_180713586_iOS

Black stamping polish 002, SKU: J6415TM-2A. It’s very black and opaque!

20180203_181525023_iOS

20180203_181810697_iOS

Blue stamping polish 001, SKU: J6415TM-1A. I love the way this frosty royal blue polish looks over the white base! Since the polish is so dark, it doesn’t show up that well over black.

20180203_182023028_iOS

20180203_182217131_iOS

Gold stamping polish 011, SKU: J6415TM-11A. This is the perfect gold shade, and I just love the way it looks over darker shades!

20180203_183547080_iOS

Silver stamping polish 008, SKU: J6415TM-8A. This polish is a little different from the others, it’s formula is much thicker and it smells a bit odd, but it still works great! I’ve actually noticed this in other silver stamping polishes too, so it must have something to do with the silver shade.

20180203_183956673_iOS

20180203_184302314_iOS

Grey stamping polish 009, SKU: J6415TM-9A. It covers really well over black for being such a light grey shade.

20180203_184455382_iOS

20180203_184625627_iOS

Purple stamping polish 012, SKU: J6415TM-12A. I’m also very impressed with how well this purple polish covers over black. It’s a super cute shade that I think will be very useful for spring manis.

20180203_184847305_iOS

20180203_185042933_iOS

Pink stamping polish 010, SKU: J6415TM-10A. It’s a lovely pink shade that I’m happy to add to my collection. It will be perfect for floral nail art!

I had no problem picking up any of the polishes from the stamping plate and I found them very easy to work with! BeautyBigbang have four more shades (yellow, red, green and brown) that I don’t have, but need to get. I really hope they will offer more shades in the future!

Nicole Diary Stamping polish + cleanup brush

I was recently sent two items from Nicole Diary to test, a gold stamping polish* and an angled brush* that I intend to use for cleanup around the cuticles.

img_1008

The handle of the brush is super cute with the multicolored pearls. Nicole Diary have nine different brushes to choose from, all with the same handle, so if you want you can get your brush collection to match. The brush I got is flat and angled, which makes it perfect for precise cleanup around the cuticles. It’s a brush that everybody should have!

img_0965

The gold stamping polish picks up perfectly from the stamping plate and it’s super pigmented. Just look how well it covers over black!
I’m super impressed with it and can’t wait to try more of their stamping polishes.

ÜberChic Beauty Love and Marriage 4 & Collection 23

Hello guys! Today I will be showing you ÜberChic Beauty‘s last release for 2017, Love and Marriage 4 and Collection 23.

img_9166

Love & Marriage 4 is full of lovely patterns that are perfect for Valentine’s Day. The first pattern that I wanted to use is the first one on the plate. I made a pink smoosh base that I topped with some gold flakes before stamping the hearts. I would love this pattern as an negative space alternative too! Maybe something for an upcoming Love & Marriage plate?

img_9127

My second design using the Love & Marriage 4 plate are these super cute love bunnies. As soon as I saw the bunny with the balloon I knew I had to use it! It reminds me of a game I had when I was a child called Match-a-balloon.

img_9492

img_9465

On the Collection 23-01 plate this floral image caught my eye. Actually I’m always drawn to the floral images on their plates, they’re just so gorgeous! I reverse stamped this design, but this image is also available as an negative space alternative. Since I’m in a make everything matte mood right now I give you both the matte and the glossy version of this design.

img_9032

img_9030

I saw this diagonal dotted pattern on the Collection 23-02 plate and thought that it would look great paired with a bright gradient and I’m very happy with the result. Did I mention I’m in to matte nails right now?

img_9431

img_9433

On the Collection 23-03 I found another beautiful floral image. I paired it with a sparkly gradient, and of I course I had to make it matte too.

On my Instagram page I have posted tutorials for the designs show in this post, and you can find them through these links; Smoosh hearts, Love bunnies, Pink flowers (I’ll update with the link once it’s posted), Diagonal gradient, Sparkly gradient.

 

ÜberChic Beauty Got chevron? & Collection 22

Today I’ll be showing you designs created with one of ÜberChic Beauty‘s latest releases. In the end of November they released four new stamping plates, Got Chevron? (made in collaboration with instagrammer @gotnail) and Collection 22.

IMG_8231

The first design I made with the Got chevron? plate is this dreamy pastel mani. I think it turned out very cute and it’s also giving me Easter vibes.

IMG_8288

I did another design using the Got Chevron? plate and this time I went all in on purple! I love the different shades of purple together and the mix of matte and glossy.

IMG_7257

To make this cute and girly mani I used the Collection 22-01 plate and some striping tape.

IMG_6904

From the Collection 22-02 plate my favorite pattern is this layered image with dots and roses. The result is super cute and the best part is that thanks to the layered images it’s so quick and easy to make!

20171229_145117603_iOS

When I first looked at the Collection 22-03 plate I saw this wavy image which made me want to create this wavy beachy design. I know it’s totally the wrong season for it (since it’s winter and snowing in Sweden) but I wouldn’t mind spending some at a beach in warmer weather now.

On my Instagram page I have posted tutorials for some of the designs shown above, and you can find them through these links; Pastel chevrons, Purple chevronsStamping & striping tapeRoses & dots.

*if I remember, I’ll update this post with tutorials for all the designs once they’re edited and posted*
