Hi everyone! Today we’re gonna take a closer look at CND’s new spring collection called Chic Shock. The collection consists of four bright pastel shades that are inspired by the South Korean k-pop culture.
As you can see the bottles have gotten a makeover, I think this new design looks very luxurious and stylish!
The Vinylux polishes all have a built in base coat and there is a special Vinylux Weekly Top Coat to make the manicure last for 7 days. My swatches are painted on bare nails and finished with one coat of the Weekly Top Coat.
Candied is a light pink creme polish that covers in two coats.
Taffy is a light blue creme polish that covers in two coats.
Jellied is a light yellow creme polish that covers in two coats.
Gummi is a light lilac creme polish that covers in just one coat! (Though I’m wearing two in this picture)
I also did some nail art designs using these polishes.
Here I used all four shades plus a white special topper, Spot it White from Dance Legend, to create a mix between a smoosh and fluid nail art. I think they’re quite fun to make and every nail always turns out unique!
I’m glad to report that these polishes water marble, and quite well I should add. I started with a white base (CND Creme puff) to make the water marble pop and finished with a holographic top coat for some extra sparkle.
For my last design I used Gummi, Jellied and Candied to create this wave-y design. The design is actually inspired by a pedicure on the press info that I received with the polishes.
I really, really like this collection! The shades are perfect for spring and I’m really impressed with how pigmented they are for being such light shades.
Hello everyone! Today I have swatches of a collection that is perfect for spring; the Macaroons collection from Shopin. The collection consists of six pretty pastel shades.
0340 is a light pink creme polish that covers in two coats.
0341 is a mint green creme polish that covers in two coats.
0342 is a pink creme polish that covers in two coats.
0343 is a light peach polish that covers in two coats.
0344 is a peach creme polish that covers in two coats.
0345 is a yellow creme polish that covers in two coats.
I also did some nail art using four of the polishes, 0341, 0342, 0344 and 0345. I haven’t done a water marble design in forever so I’m very happy to see that it turned out this good.
In Sweden you can find Sophin polishes at thepurebox.se.
Yesterday I had some fun playing around with polishes. I did a water marble which I haven’t done in forever, so it was about time! I wanted it to be colorful and fun so I went for my Cirque Colors Vice shades and I love how they turned out!
First I painted my nails with a white polish, I used Alpine snow from OPI, then I covered my skin around my nails with Simply peel from Bliss Kiss to get an easy clean up. For the water marble I used Plastik, Rehab, Electric Daisy and High Roller from Cirque Colors, and they turned out to be perfect for water marbling! To create the pattern I used the #7 Water marble tool from Pure Color/Whats up nails.
I have a tutorial for this mani which you can see here.
At first I thought about using holo polishes for my water marble, but instead I decided to put a holo top coat over the finished result. So here I used one coat of We Trippy from Cirque Colors and I really like the result.
If you thought I was finished here you were wrong. I’ve seen people stamp over their water marbles with really cool results, so I just had to give it a try. I used one of my new favorite stamping plates, Feeling shapely! 07 from Lina nail art supplies tighter with my favorite black stamping polish Midnight Mischief from Painted Polish. And I’m really digging this look too.
Hope you like my water marble, and I really hope that I’ll marble soon again because it was really fun!
Last weekend was the pride festival in my home town and I made some rainbow nails for the occasion.
To make these nails I used the Color paints polishes from OPI that are perfect for water marbling. More precicely Silver canvas, Magenta muse, Chromatic orange, Primarily yellow, Landscape artist, Indigo motif, Purple perspective. To make the cleanup easier I used Mini mani moo around my nails.
I did not join the parade, but found that my nails were matching this awesome mural on a house in town.
Here are my favorite manis from May. I don’t think I can spot a theme for this month but I guess that’s not a bad thing!
Which one do you like the most?
