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.

In Sweden you can find Sophin polishes at thepurebox.se.

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!

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!

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?

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!

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Sugar heart nails + video tutorial

Valentine’s Day is only three weeks away, and even though I don’t really celebrate it it’s a perfect holiday for cute nail art!

img_9601

I recently received Depend’s new O2 spring collection called Retro Glam* which turned out to be perfect for this sweet sugar heart design. I used six (out of 12) shades from the collection together with UberChic Beauty’s Love & Marriage 2* stamping plate and white stamping polish from Twinkled T**.

img_9603-1

I’ve been loving making my manis matte lately, so this design has to be mattified! Usually I have a hard time deciding between glossy or matte, but this time I like the matte version the most.
Which version do you prefer?

Check out the video tutorial for this design below!

Unicorn powder nails + video tutorial

A few days ago I sat down to paint my nails without a plan for a mani in mind. All I knew was that I was going to use my new gradient brush* that I recently received from Born Pretty Store. On my desk I had The Dream Cremes collection from Heroine NYC so I decided to make a subtle pastel gradient using Sugar Spun and Lilac it.

img_0208

img_0210

The gradient brush is very easy to use and this method is much less messy compared to making a gradient using a sponge.

After taking photos of the gradient I saw the Icing powder* from Twinkled T**. I received it a few weeks ago, and it’s been lying in my ‘to try’ pile on my desk since. I applied the powder over my pastel gradient and I’m very happy that it caught my eye, because the result is really amazing!

img_0212

I have tried a few different unicorn powders and the Icing powder is by far the best one I’ve tried! I’m not just saying that because I got it from Twinkled T, I would’ve said the same thing if I had paid for it myself. The powder goes on so easily and smooth. Since the powder is so fine it doesn’t look grainy (as some unicorn powders does) and the result is super shiny!

Do you like having the video tutorial here in the post? Previously I’ve linked to the tutorial on my Instagram, but if I upload the video on YouTube I can embed it in the post. Is this something you want me to continue doing? Your feedback is much appreciated!
