Closing the blog --> opening a Tumblr!

Hello! I'm back posting my nail art online!

I recently put up a tumblr, because I find it the easiest way for me to post my pictures, so no more detailed explanation of the nail art, but feel free to ask me anything on the tumblr :)

See you there :

Kiko Violet Microglitter

Hello everyone!

After a WHOLE NAKED week, I finally painted my nails! As it was a sleepless week I also did something quick (before I went to bed!).
I wanted something I would be sure I'd like, so I went for favorite color : purple!

This gorgeous glitter polish is Kiko - 255 Violet Microglitter!
Here I applied one coat on top of his brother: Kiko - 292 Light Grape a crème polish just a little lighter ;)

I wanted to add a little extra and went with a Konad bow from m59, using Stargazer - 232.

I this is a great combo, and I loooooved wearing this mani! It's pretty simple but was what I needed ;)

This weekend I went to a gastronomie and wine salon in my hometown and it was great:

Have a great day!

Starry Gradient

Hello everyone!

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while! Still have a lot of work because of my studies, plus it was my 18th birthday! I hope I'll have more free time because I hate to keep a mani when it's chipped and I want to nail art more! :)

This month I received a lot of polish for my birthday being in an AWESOME birthday group! (I'll do a haul birthday gifts post soon!)  I was out of time but with bare nails so I decided to do a gradient combining some of my new polishes:

I had several replacement for my old Wet'n Wild - Black Crème which was becoming gloopy and my friend Yvonne sent me the pretty Essie - Going Incognito :)
I made a gradient with them using a makeup sponge, after one coat of Going Incognito.

On my ring finger I added one coat of Kleancolor - Silver Star (again: thank you Yvonne!) and it was perfectly sparkly!

I really enjoy this mani, do you like it?

Have a great day, I hope to post soon ;)

Guest Post at Reflections, Sassy Nails, and Silly Diversions!

Hello everyone!

Sorry for not posting a lot, but my studies take a lot of my time!

You might have noticed that I changed the title of my blog, do you like it?

Today I have a manicure to show you, you'll find it at my friend Carrie's blog: Reflections, Sassy Nails, and Silly Diversions!

She asked me to do a blog post Pediatric & Breast Cancer Awarenesses themed so I had to go with pink & gold ;)

Hello lovely readers!

Today's post features a quite simple nail art, but it is really classy and makes your nails look longer/finer!

(I would love to give credit to the original creator of this style, but I didn't succeeded in my searches...)

To achieve the look, you'll only need two color polishes!

I applied two coats of an unnamed rose Avon and directly with the brush of my Wet'n Wild - Black Crème, I draw the lines (a little bit curvy on both ends).

I really like the vintage color with this design! I think this is a design I'll reproduce because it is so easy, quick to do and gives a chic look!

What do you think?

Have a wonderful day!

Tribal Galaxy!

Hello girls!

When I saw the tribal galaxy design that Mr Candiipants achieved inspired by a society6 phone case, I immediately wanted to make a try:

Sadly my acrylic paint pen (POSCA) wasn't opaque enough and crackled with my topcoat :/

I used a lot of colors for this design, starting by one coat of a dark green crème from Avon.

I sponged other colors from Avon: a light grey crème, a navy shimmer (similar to China Glaze - Rodeo Fanatic) and a purple glass fleck (similar to CG - Senorita Bonita).
I also sponged Orly - Butterfly and Biguine Makeup Gloss & Shock - Blue Lagoon.

Then I added one coat of China Glaze - Fairy Dust (thank you Nikki!) to give it a lot of sparkliness!

I decorated this galaxy using my white Posca and some holo gold hex glitter, then Out The Door Top Coat ;)

Did you liked it? I am disapointed of the opacity and crackling of the white paint but I think these are cute! Not as badass as Mr Candiipants' but a little more detailed :)

Have a great day!

My Queen of hearts and her red roses!

Hi Nail Polish Addicts!

Here I am with a wonderful polish to show you! My friend Rachel generously accepted to blend me a custom polish (all the way from Australia!).

I didn't thought I could layer it over another color than grey, but I found other pretty combinations after all! Here I applied one coat over two coats of Zoya - Yara :)
If you are jealous and want to purchase it, go buy the inspiration for it: Once Upon A Polish - Queen of Hearts!

For the accent nails, after the background color was dry, I started by drawing roses with a fine white Posca (acrylic paint pen).
I added the drops of red using a tiny brush and China Glaze - Adventure Red-Y. I finally outlined them with the same brush and Wet'n Wild - Black Crème ;)

I am really in love with this polish and its combination with khaki! <3
I'm not sure if I did well with the accent nails though... What do you think?

Have a wonderful day ladies!
