Blue stamped nails

Hi everybody. It’s Monday again and it’s also the second time I’m joining Emelie’s blue Monday theme.

For today’s nails I’m using the second stamping plate that I got from Lina nail art supplies a couple of weeks ago. The base for my mani is Rhapsody in blue from Cirque Colors. I stamped this beautiful pattern over it using Feeling shapely! 07 from Lina nail art supplies and White Knight from MoYou London.

And I had to make them matte too!

Which version do you like the most, matte or glossy?

Colorful tropical flowers

Yesterday was Cath’s (@withnailsandi) birthday, and to celebrate a bunch of us girls decided to recreate one of her manis.  To see all recreations search for #withcakeandi on Instagram.

I hope you’re ready for a lot of pictures of the nails I did, because I just love how they turned out!

For this design I used Lady in black as the base. I stamped the flowers using White knight and Tropical collection 13 from MoYou London. To fill in the flowers I used the following Color Paints from OPI; Landscape artist, Pen & pink, Magenta muse, Primarily yellow, Chromatic orange and Purple perspective.

And here are some pictures of them in matte.

And here’s how they looked before I filled in the flowers with the Color Paints. Love them in color but I have to say that I’m digging this monochrome look too.

Which version of this design do you prefer; glossy, matte or monochrome?

Blue floral nails

Hi guys, I hope you’re all well. Only one more day left until the weekend!

Today I’m wearing these cute floral nails that I made using a new stamping plate. Last Thursday I ordered a few stamping plates from nailartuk.co.uk and I got them on Monday, so talk about fast shipping. I’m not sure if I would’ve gotten them this fast if I’d ordered them from a Swedish store, so I will definitely be checking out this store again. What I got was the new Little baby stamping plate from ÜberChic beauty as well as two stamping plates, Feeling shapely! 07 and 4 seasons Spring 01, from Lina nail art supplies. The later is a brand that is new to me. I found a lot of beautiful plates from Lina, but since I haven’t tried them before I just got two to see if they were any good.

For this floral design I used The I’s have it and Oh my majesty! from OPI, White knight from MoYou London and stamping plate 4 seasons Spring 01 from Lina nail art supplies. I really really like this stamping plate, it has so many cute motives that are perfect for spring. I think you can expect quite a few designs using this plate in the near future.

Painted Polish Haute Parisian Nights 

I think it’s safe to say that I’ve become obsessed with holo and indie nail polish (preferably a combination of the two). Today I’m showing you my first polish from indie brand Painted Polish, called Haute Parisian Night.

Haute Parisian Nights is a hot pink ultra holographic polish that covers in two super easy coats. It is a linear holo with silver holographic glitter, and I guess that’s what makes it an ultra holo! Anyway I freaking love this polish! It is seriously stunning, I could not stop staring at my nails while wearing it. In the sun you can really see that it is a linear holo, and when the nails are not in direct sunlight you really see the holographic glitters in it.

I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

I really, really didn’t want to remove it so I decided to use it as the base for nail art (not that it needs any nail art on top of it). To fit in with the month of February I chose to stamp a rose design using stamping plate BP-73 from Born Pretty Store and stamping polish White Knight from MoYou London.

I can’t wait to get my hands on some more ultra holos from Painted Polish!

Tropical nails

Hi everybody, I hope you had a good weekend. Today I’m sharing my first nail art design using polishes from the Fiji collection. It’s a bright and fun manicure that definitely gives me spring vibes.

The polishes I used for this mani are: Living on the bula-vard, No tan lines and Exotic birds do not tweet. I started by painting two coats of Exotic birds do not tweet, the I grabbed a makeup sponge to create the gradient with. I dabbed each nail a few times until I was happy with the result. After that I added a quick dry top coat to get a smooth and even more blended result.

The last step of the design was to add the tropical flowers. To create them I used stamping plate Tropical collection 13 and stamping polish White knight from MoYou London together with my clear stamper from Born Pretty store. After that I sealed in the design once again with the fast drying top coat HK Girl from Glisten&Glow.

I hope you like this design and that it gives you spring feelings! 

 

January favorites

Wow, we’re already a month in to the new year! How fast does time fly by, soon it’s December again. A new month means that I pick out my favorite manis from the past month. This time it was really hard for me to pick them, because I have done plenty of manis that I loved in January.

The absolute favorite has to be the tropical gradient though. I was so sad when I had to remove it.

Which mani is your favorite?

December 15 | Penguins

Since today is Fernanda’s birthday, and I know that she loves penguins, so that’s what I made for day 15 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator.

img_2699

For this mani I used winter from piCture pOlish, Alpine snow from OPI and stamping plates Enchanted 06 and 16 from MoYou London.

Happy birthday Fernanda!

December 10 | Ugly Christmas sweater

For day 10 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I made some ugly Christmas sweater nails (I think they’re cute rather than ugly).

img_2754

The base is my favorite white polish Alpine snow by OPI. I spammed the pattern using stamping plate B003 Sweater weather from What’s up nails, glitch and o’hara from piCture pOlish.

Have a nice weekend!

December 9 | Golden snowflakes

I know this is a little late, but I was out last night with some friends so I didn’t have time to post this yesterday.

For day nine of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I made some fancy golden snowflakes.

img_2649

For this mani I used Satin Sister and Getting Groovy, from Essie’s holiday collection called Getting Groovy. The snowflakes are made with stamping plate Enchanted 16 from MoYou London.

December 8 | Reindeer

For day eight of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I tried a technique I never tried before, reverse stamping. I really like the result and I’m gonna try this technique again soon!

img_2612

The red polish is from OPI’s 2012 Skyfall holiday collection and it’s called The spy who loved me. It is so pretty and a real favorite for Christmas. For the Reindeer I used Alpine snow, Lady in black, Shh… It’s top secret!, Squeaker of the house, Stay off the lawn! (all from OPI) and new stamping plate Festive 46 from MoYou London.
