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.
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!
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**.
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!

Hello guys! Today I will be showing you ÜberChic Beauty‘s last release for 2017, Love and Marriage 4 and Collection 23.
Love & Marriage 4 is full of lovely patterns that are perfect for Valentine’s Day. The first pattern that I wanted to use is the first one on the plate. I made a pink smoosh base that I topped with some gold flakes before stamping the hearts. I would love this pattern as an negative space alternative too! Maybe something for an upcoming Love & Marriage plate?
My second design using the Love & Marriage 4 plate are these super cute love bunnies. As soon as I saw the bunny with the balloon I knew I had to use it! It reminds me of a game I had when I was a child called Match-a-balloon.
On the Collection 23-01 plate this floral image caught my eye. Actually I’m always drawn to the floral images on their plates, they’re just so gorgeous! I reverse stamped this design, but this image is also available as an negative space alternative. Since I’m in a make everything matte mood right now I give you both the matte and the glossy version of this design.
I saw this diagonal dotted pattern on the Collection 23-02 plate and thought that it would look great paired with a bright gradient and I’m very happy with the result. Did I mention I’m in to matte nails right now?
On the Collection 23-03 I found another beautiful floral image. I paired it with a sparkly gradient, and of I course I had to make it matte too.
On my Instagram page I have posted tutorials for the designs show in this post, and you can find them through these links; Smoosh hearts, Love bunnies, Pink flowers (I’ll update with the link once it’s posted), Diagonal gradient, Sparkly gradient.
Today I’ll be showing you designs created with one of ÜberChic Beauty‘s latest releases. In the end of November they released four new stamping plates, Got Chevron? (made in collaboration with instagrammer @gotnail) and Collection 22.
The first design I made with the Got chevron? plate is this dreamy pastel mani. I think it turned out very cute and it’s also giving me Easter vibes.
I did another design using the Got Chevron? plate and this time I went all in on purple! I love the different shades of purple together and the mix of matte and glossy.
To make this cute and girly mani I used the Collection 22-01 plate and some striping tape.
From the Collection 22-02 plate my favorite pattern is this layered image with dots and roses. The result is super cute and the best part is that thanks to the layered images it’s so quick and easy to make!
When I first looked at the Collection 22-03 plate I saw this wavy image which made me want to create this wavy beachy design. I know it’s totally the wrong season for it (since it’s winter and snowing in Sweden) but I wouldn’t mind spending some at a beach in warmer weather now.
On my Instagram page I have posted tutorials for some of the designs shown above, and you can find them through these links; Pastel chevrons, Purple chevrons, Stamping & striping tape, Roses & dots.
*if I remember, I’ll update this post with tutorials for all the designs once they’re edited and posted*

Hi guys! Today I have some new products from ÜberChic Beauty to show you. Last Friday they released four new stamping plates, Holiday jingle & Collection 21. Holiday jingle is their third Christmas themed stamping plate and it has a lot of different layered stamping images! In fact all four plates has layered images, which is a fun and easy way to take your stamping to another dimension.
For this Winter wonderland design I used the Holiday jingle plate. I couldn’t decide which version of it I like the most, glossy or matte, so I give you both. I chose not to include any Christmas patterns for this mani since it’s only the beginning of November, and I think that’s a bit early for Christmas. But when December comes I think this will be my go-to plate for Christmas nails!
I made another winter design with the Holiday jingle plate, white snowflakes over a dark blue base. It’s a very simple design, but I just love this combination.
The DIY fox on Collection 21-01 plate is probably my favorite image from the collection. It is just so darn cute with it’s scarf and boots. I want to make this fox in every singe color combination possible. I think the polish that I paired it with is a pretty good match, don’t you agree?
I used the first image on Collection 21-02 plate to make some holo flowers and I really loved how they turned out. The collection plates from ÜberChic always have such pretty floral patterns. I also filled in the flowers to make them look more like sunflowers. I like this version too, but the first version is my favorite.
Collection 21-03 have these super cute hot air balloons images and I’m so happy with how this design turned out. I really like the mani as it is with just the clouds, and that it matches the polish bottle so well, so I had to take a picture of it before I added the balloons.
On my Instagram page I have posted tutorials for most of these designs, I’ll put the links to them here; Winter Wondeland, Fox, Holo flowers, Hot air balloons.
Last week I got Depend’s new O2 collection called Across the Universe. The collection consists of eight polishes in blue and green hues. As soon as I tested the first polish I discovered that it was a one coater. That gave me the idea to see if it would stamp, and it did. In fact they all do!
What you see here is ONE coat of each shade, and on some nails one layer stamped over a white base. After discovering that this collection stamps, I love it even more!

Hi guys! Did you know that today is National nail polish day? Well, for me every day is nail polish day. But it’s still a fun occation, don’t you think?
Today I have some bright, sparkly and super glossy nails to share with you! I’m so happy with how they turned out so I’m actually gonna be a little sad when I have to remove them.
I started by painting my nails with Mega (X) from ILNP which is a silver holographic polish. Then I sponged on the gradient using the Color Paints from OPI (Landscape artist, Primarily yellow, Chromatic orange, Magenta muse and Purple perspective). Lastly I stamped a floral pattern over the gradient using stamping plate 9-03 from ÜberChic beauty and Midnight mischief from Painted Polish (which is THE best black stamping polish!).
Here is how the gradient looked before I added the stamping. It’s really pretty, but I like it so much more with the stamping on top. Which version do you like the most?
How are you celebrating national nail polish day? I’m going to celebrate by taking these off (😢) and paint some new nails!
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!
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.
