Pick n Mix challenge: Grey + color

I adore the color gray in any combination with a bright color. But the best partner for gray is yellow in my opinion :) I had this amazing Arcane lacquer called State of grace for a while and now it's time to make it shine. Since it's quite sheer I made a stampwich with some Mundo de Unas polishes and hehe 005 plate. I added some studs from Bornpretty store on the accent finger since I thought it needed something extra.

I kind off like how it turned out - all pretty, shimmery and subtle :)



Here is a swatch of Arcane lacquer State of grace. It's a gray jelly with gold shimmer and gold shards. It's a bit on the sheer side so I used a layer of white polish as base.



If you want any of the amazing Arcane lacquers head on over to her etsy store :)

Guest post: Hot mess stilettos

Excitement time over here! My BPFF (Best polish friend forever) owner of Hysteria of decay blog made a lovely guest post for me today. We threw out a bunch of words and created a theme - Hot mess stilettos is what came out. So don't forget to visit her at her blog Hysteria of decay and lets see what she wrote about these amazing nails :) 

Hello!
In case you don't know me, I'm Ina from Hysteria of decay and a good friend of Gin (at least that's what I tell myself) I was a bit scared of doing nail art for this post because Gin is a master of nail art doer (yes that's a word). I tired my best to bring some drama in these ''Hot mess stilettos'' themed nails. I went for a fun and easy design, my favourite nail is the middle finger, love the combination of neon gradient and leopard spots. I hope you'll like it too <3

Polishes used: 
- Yes love 337
- Depend 035
- Color club Wham! Pow!
- Models own Bubblegum
- Ruby kisses Look at me purple
- Wet n Wild Darkest hour
- P2 Let's dance!
- Born pretty studs and rhinestones







Now how perfect are these nails! <3

Cosnova nails

I am still recovering from the amazing blogger event courtesy of Essence and Catrice. And on that day I wanted to wear relay cool nail art made with (almost) all Cosnova items. This is what I came up with :) The ladies there loved them and so do I.

The base is Essence Grab this hype and Catrice Put lavender on the agenda. The stamps are made with Mundo de Unas polishes and a subtle layer of stamps underneath made with Catrice Bloomnonymous. The stamping plate is Lilly Anna 08. The studs are from Bornpretty store.



Do you ever make nails just for special events?

Catrice and Essence blogger event (picture heavy)

This week the event of the year happened in my little country of Slovenia! Essence and Catrice decided to again invite us to a fabulous blogger event. And to make it more magical the event was held in a castle <3 
When we arrived we were greeted by the lovely Cosnova staff, amazing food and a lot of cosmetics by both brands. Even extremely rare Limited edition stands. Then we got a very informative short lecture about the brands development, marketing and future collections. GIRLS GET READY FOR SOME RELAY COOL LIMITED EDITIONS! :) 
After that we had the honor and opportunity to try out anything and even take some swag with us. I was so happy since I was finally able to get my hand on the Yes we rock products that I couldn't find anywhere in stores. Make up reviews incoming :)

The best part of it all was that I was able to talk to 'the boss lady' Katarina from Germany made me feel like such a grown up talking about marketing :) Thank you again all who made this cool event happen <3





Here is my BFF Miss Hysteria completely ignoring me and being in love with the products :)


So many things to choose from ...





Here is the latest LE from Essence that hasn't hit the stores - it's Xmas themed, so adorable.





Many yummy and delicious sweets <3




We even had the opportunity to get our nails done by a professional :)


My favorite part of the decorations where these small picture frames with Catrice products - so classy <3





The location of the event was truly magical ...




In all I got 3 bags full of swag - stationary, make up and nail products. I was feeling so blessed and I want to share my happiness with you all! So get ready for some International giveaways soon :)




Tomorrow I will post the nails I wore to the event. The ladies from Cosnova liked it and I was so proud :)

Pick n Mix challenge: Matte or texture - Studded jeans

I am one of these girls that doesn't own a pair of blue jeans. But I do like the shade that they come in and I feel in love with the Claire's Denim look Blue. I added some stitches and studs - the things I love most on denim :)

The stamps are made with Barry M Gold foil and BM411 and A48. Everything dried matte so they where ready with no need for top coat.




Hope you like it :)

Sunday stamping: The 90ies - Sailor moon

This week the theme of the Sunday stamping challenge is The decade you where born - mine is the 90ies.  And what makes me think of that time most is all the time spend in front of the TV watching anime -  Sailor moon :) 

And I am so grateful for the reboot because the old one was kind off sucky at times :) And I finally got my Sailor moon plates thanks to the amazing angel from Intense polish therapy <3 Also I created with layers of different polishes a base that is just perfect for this mani. 



Here is a nice gif of the reboot so you can see where I got the color scheme inspiration from :)

source: tumblr



A quick snap of the plates <3



For the base I used layers of different polishes that have a lot of shaped glitter. The white base is Sinful colors Wisp and the glitter polishes are Essence Sunshine and red roses, Silly Lilly polish New Years eve and Claire's Bonjour. The stamps are made with Essence stamp me black and hehe 013 plate. 





Any other moonies out there? :)

Pick n Mix challenge: Pink - Girls are tough mani

As most of you know I am not a fan of pink - but this month is breast cancer awareness month and I wanted to make something to honor all the ladies fighting it. But I did it my way - a pink mani that is full of girly stuff but it's also kind off tough :)



For this mani I used S-he stylezone no.155 and Catrice Charleston's fame as base. Over it I added fimo slices and rhinestones. Also some bigger 3D art pieces from Born pretty store and some Caviar beads from Essence I love my ice cream collection :)
