Neon aztec

When I was in London in the beginning of this month I picked up Models Own new Aquaproof collection. The collection consists of five bright neon shades and I’ve used four of them for this design.

I made this design for the last prompt of this month’s @clairestelle8challenge on Instagram, with the theme aztec/tribal print. I didn’t have a design planned wen I sat down to paint them. Sometimes unplanned manis turn out great, and sometimes they don’t… I’m really happy this design turned out to be one of the good ones. They’re just so bright and fun!

For this design I used Impassable yellowOrange sealImpervious pink and Airtight turquoise from Models Own. The stamping plate is Bundle Monster + ChitChat Nails BM-XL202 and the stamping polish is Midnight mischief from Painted Polish. To fill in the pattern I used Dance 24 detail brush from Whats up nails.

Of course I had to add a matte top coat, though I can’t decide which version I like the most. The glossy one is so bright, but the matte one shows the pattern so well. What version do you like the most?

I had to make some nail art with the two polishes together and I love this design so, so much, and aren’t they a perfect match!? To create this manicure I used vinyls from Snail vinyls.

February favorites

Here are my favorite manis from February. I think you can tell from them that I long for spring…

Which one of these do these do you like the most?

 

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.
