April favorites

I feel like I’m saying this every time it’s time for a monthly mani favorites, but I can’t believe that it’s already May!

This past month I’ve done some really cute spring manis, I love my pink flower mani soon much, and the easter mani is so cute! I have also done quite a few chrome powder manis, but I chose to just include one in this collage, because I have a feeling that May will bring some more chrome manis.

Please let me know which mani you like the most!

Blue gradient

Hi everyone! So it’s Monday again, did you have a good weekend? My weekend was good and I had time for some swatching, so check back here later this week for pictures!

Today I have some blue gradient nails to show you, I made them for piCture pOlish’s second nail art challenge with the theme ‘gradient’. I actually made a gradient design for their last challenge too (you can find them here), but I’m not complaining, I like making gradients.

The polishes I used are salt water, superior and freya’s cats, all of them from piCture pOlish of course. I really like how the gradient turned out, I think it’s perfectly blended.

I got an ocean vibe from the gradient so I wanted to make some appropriate nail art over it. So I took out my Mermaid life stamping plate from ÜberChic beauty and stamped some sea shells using White knight from MoYou London. I really like this look too, but I wish the gradient would have been a little bit more visible underneath the stamping.

piCture pOlish swatches & nail art

A few weeks ago I got my very fist piCture pOlish’es, I wore some of them immediately but didn’t take any pictures of them because my nails and cuticles were in a really bad state (from using seche vive). My nails and cuticles feel better now so I have finally made some proper swatches of the polishes, including some nail art!
