40 Great Nail art Ideas challenge: Turquoise + Aztec

This challenge was not very kind to me so far ... But finally I got a nice combination *YAY*
One of my favorite colors and patterns #lucky :)

I love how these turned out!!! I wore them for a week <3


Thou Aztec prints are usually very loud I didn't want to over do it since the base polish Femme fatale Cloudburst that I chose is so magnificent. So here is a toned down Aztec + turquoise nail art :)


For this manicure I used Femme fatale Cloudburst as base. The stamps are made with Essence stamp me! black and BM-605 plate. I colored it in with Sinful colors Wisp and Color club Gingerbread man. 


Aren't Aussie indie polish brands just the best? *swoon*

NOTD: Chocolate covered Strawberries

We are slowly getting closer to that time of the year when Valentines Day takes over. There are cute posts everywhere, therefore I decided to make a slightly sexy manicure this time. Now it is finally the perfect time to use my nail shape to its advantage <3  


Strawberries are the vague same shape as my nails which fits perfectly with my design. And to crown it I covered them in chocolate since I believe that is one of the best and most sexy ways to get served fruit for Valentines Day or any other day :) 


For this manicure I used OPI Coca cola red as base. The dots are made with Essence Inti inka and the green details are made with Catrice I am not a greenager. The chocolate is made with Essence In love.

BPS Review: BPS White stamping polish

I did similar reviews before with BornPretty store stamping polishes. But one of the colors I use the most is white. Therefore I just had to try out their White stamping polish and once more I am amazed at how great their products are. 


The Bornpretty White stamping polish comes in a 15ml bottle. The formula of it is very opaque and easy to work with no matter what is the plate you use or what type of stamper you have. It is a great bargain for 4.79$ - a must have for any stamping fan since white is a great color for this type of nail art.


As you can see the color is opaque enough to cover the darker colors in this case the dark glitters. I tested it over a black base and it worked perfectly. It doesn't bleed like some white polishes do and then they just absorb the base color. It even strongly stands out on those small parts that have a white as base. Simply put a stampers dream.



For this manicure I used China glaze Daisy know my name?, DJ Blue my mind and Can I get an untz untz as base. I also added some Sinful colors Wisp in the base and Kiko 389. The plate I used is Qgirl 041 that is also sold on their store web page. 



If you are in search of a life time supply of stamping polish or any other nail art supplies stop by Bornpretty store and while you are there use the 10% OFF COUPON RJL91.

40 Great Nail art Ideas challenge: Films / Sleepy Hollow

I love anything Tim Burton does - but his classic work Sleepy Hollow is one of my all time favorite movies. I also like it since it is a horror movie but it is not like all the modern ones that are filled with blood, zombies and cheap scare tactics. Also it features Johnny Depp so *swoon* :)

So I decided to use my new Bundle monster set to create all the things that are featured in this movie, the series and the original story. A headless horseman obviously, some spiderwebs with a pentagram, a jack-o-lantern and a skull somewhere forgotten ;)


Here you can see the old promotional poster and a trailer if you have not seen the movie yet :)



At the same time I love a good revamp project - and the series Sleepy Hollow on FOX is one of those things. The idea behind the old world meeting the new and still keeping the story intact is amazing! So believe it or not these nails apply for the both things <3


This is the promotional poster of the new Sleepy Hollow series and the opening theme below. If you need something cool for your next Netflix and chill night this show is a great choice ;)



For this manicure I used only BM plates, such as BM-S201, BM-S205 and BM-S204. The base polishes I used are MaxFactor Fantasy fire, Orly Fowl play, Femme fatale Miasma and S-he stylezone no.184. The details are made with OPI Where did suzi's man-go?, Essence The dawn is broken, Catrice L'Ombre A Saussouri. The stamping polishes I used are Essence stamp me!white and black, Mundo de Unas Red. 
 

Keep it creepy ;)

NOTD: Last snowflakes

The winter time is coming to an end. But I am not ready to say ''Goodbye'' to all the adorable snowflake nail art so I decided to make something that from a far away it would pass as normal nail art ;) 



I love how this turned out! Black and white and some gold are always a great combination, therefore this manicure is a great way to end the Winter season :)


I used Yes love 467 and Sinful colors Wisp as base, the gold accent nails base is Zoya Solange. The stamping polishes I used are Essence stamp me! white and black. The gold stamping polish is Barry M Gold foil. The stamping plates I used are MoYou London Festive 8 and BP-L018. 


This post was created for the page Glam express. Head on over if you need some inspiration for this or the next Winter season ;)

BPS Review: Gold Nail Art Decoration in Wheel

Born pretty store is a great source for all types of beauty products. But I love their nail art  department best because you can get absolutely anything from them. I was lucky enough to be sent this Gold Nail Art decoration for review. It is a set of classic nail studs that are a must have for any nail artist.

And this is the look I came up with. I just love how this turned out - a great contrast between the matte nails and shiny nail studs. They turned out so sexy - just right for the up coming Valentines day :)


Here you can see the nail art wheel. It comes in gold or silver and you can get it for 2.48$ on their page. The studs range in sizes from 1.5 mm to 3 mm. The shapes are triangular, circles, round studs, hearts, bows, tear shapes, squares and crosses. Some of them are flat and some are a bit more 3D.


The mix of different shapes and sizes of the studs makes them very fun to work with. You can use them with nail glue or Gel nail polish that makes it sure they won't fall off. I only wish there were more of each shape since they are all so beautiful but you can't make big and elaborate nail art using just this nail wheel. Maybe just use them as small details, but still a great bargain for the price. 


For this manicure I used Essence From me to you as base. Over it I added China glaze Matte magic as top coat. I used almost half of the nail studs in the wheel and some nail glue. 


So if you are on the constant hunt for deals visit Bornpretty store Nail art department and stack up on some of these beauties. And while you are there use the

Irresistible Me Review: Aida Hair chain

This is the last of my reviews I created for Irresistible me. They are an international online store that sells hair extensions, tools and accessories. I was lucky enough to get my hands on their Aida hair chain. It is an unique hair decoration that I have never seen before, but had a lot of fun using! :)


The hair decoration is made out of 2 large hair pins. They are baroque gold pins full of filigree and swirls that are crowned with some pearls and two very large diamond like gems. One is a bit bigger then the other. So you can wear it together or apart on top of your hairdo. The chains are quite delicate and in 3 different lenghts. I decided to tangle the 2 longer ones and make a nice little cross that fitted right in the middle of my forehead. 


The decorative pins are mounted on a little crocodile clip which means you can also wear them as decoration on your clothes. There is no need to wear it only as hair accessories. 


I like this hair chain. It is unique and very versatile. Here I posted only one look, but there were a million other ways I tried to wear it and it was hard to decide which style I like best :)


If you are also on the hunt for a good statement piece visit the page Irresistible me or any type of other hair products. A bonus: all their products come in a very pretty box that keeps all the glamorous items safe :)
