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!

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.

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?

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!

OPI Peru

This year’s fall collection from OPI takes its inspiration from Peru. My favorite collections from OPI are their spring and fall collections because they’re always inspired by a place, (this year’s spring collection was inspired by Lisbon) which gives so much inspiration for nail art designs. The Peru collection consists of 12 creme polishes and at a first glance it may not look like a typical fall collection becasue there are many lighter and colorful shades. After swatching the collection I have changed my mind – the collection is colorful but the shades are muted not bright. And anyway who say you should only wear darker shades in the fall?

2018-06-25_21-41-56

I usually don’t include OPI’s press pictures of the collection in my blog posts, but this time I had to! I love the cozy vibe they’re giving and they make me like the collection so much more!

PERU-BLOG

I got the polishes in the Infinite Shine formula and this is the first time I’m trying a whole collection in this formula.
Infinite Shine is a 3-step system which will last up to 11 days of wear and the polishes dries super shiny! The formula of the Infinite Shine polishes is really good and they made the application super easy.

Zoya Sunshine

Hello everybody! Right now the weather isn’t that good, it’s cold and raining, and I miss the lovely summer weather we had in May. Just the other day I was lucky to receive Zoya’s summer collection called Sunshine! At least now my nails are ready for summer when the nice weather returns again (the forecast says it’ll get warmer next week, yay!).

The Sunshine collection consists of 8 creme polishes, two shimmer polishes and two glitter/shimmer toppers.

All Zoya lacquers are 10 free and cruelty free (meaning they don’t test on animals).

If I could only pick a couple I would choose the two toppers, Nahla and Saldana, just because they’re so unique, and I bet they would look amazing over many different shades!
