The skeleton man is on the loose


Hi Everyone.

Remember last year I did this mani of the skeleton man escaping from his coffin. You can see it here. This year I really wanted do it again :) And it was a perfect mani for the theme "Grave" for the BM challenge. Only my nails were a lot shorter now then last year, so I did not had that much space. But still it was fun to do again.


"Who is that knocking in the coffin? 
It's me.... the skeleton man  Let me out let me out!  
I don't want to be in my grave. 
Yes I am almost there just a little bit further.  
Woohoo I am out, you can't catch me.  
Na nana nanaaa.... Happy dance :)"

A gradient base with textured polishes Julie G Tangerine Dream and Sugar Rush. Used BM402 and BM413 for the stamping, first stamped the coffins in black and colored them black and stamped over them with white.

I have done some many mani's for Halloween, think I'll blog a lot more this week ;) But just short posts. The long post from my holiday in Greece will have to wait till next month or so ;)

Have a nice sunday!

Scary zombies

Hi Everyone,

Today another Halloween mani I've made this week. I really did a lot of Halloween mani's this week. This was for the Bundle Monster challenge and the theme that day was zombies .As you all know I like being creative with stamps too and use parts of image to create something new. I also did this here too and I also used a little freehand.


China Glaze FYI holo base stamped with BM-H06 the eyes (first stamped in red and colored them red and stamped over it with white), the teeth (first stamped in black then stamped over it in white) and the blood. BM-H08 for the zombie hands and BM411 for the stitches (used parts of it). And a little freehand for the nose and mouth on my thumb.


I only have one pic to show, I already swatched this polish some years ago so no swatches.

Have a nice weekend!

Thanks for reading :)

Black cat on the wall


Hi Everyone,

Today one of my Halloween themed mani's I've made this week. I made a couple of them I love Halloween themed mani's. I wish Halloween was a real holiday here too :) Julep contacted me and asked me if I wanted to participate with their Halloween challenge...and I said yes cause always love a challenge and especially when it is a fun theme. I don't own any Julep polish since it isn't easy for me to get, but ofcourse I've seen their polishes on blogs and facebook of my fellow nail addicts :) 

They send me a Halloween nail art tutorial....we all know my freehand skills aren't that great. And I have many other Halloween ideas but I thought it was fun to do a stamping mani based on their freehand tutorial..since I am a stamping girl ;) It isn't my most favorite Halloween mani I did but it was fun to do and I did gave my own spin to it...they used a fence and I made it a wall ;)

First I'll show you my mani and then I'll share Julep's tutorial with you. I would love to see your version of it if you decide to make it :)

I needed to use a blue for the night sky color, I could have used a darker more midnight blue but I wanted to use my new polish from the Greek brand Seventeen that I bought on my vacation there ;) It is opaque in one coat so that is nice and it also stamps, so win win. Will show swatches at the end of this post.


Now here is my mani.
Base Seventeen 545 (kinda has a suede look to it). Stamped with Konad SN yellow the peace sign from BM320 so I could color it and it could be my moon (see I do combine stamping with a little freehand :P haha). Used Konad SN pastel orange (this isn't really a pastel) to color part of my nail and stamped over it with BM422 in black to make it look like a brick wall. The black cat is from Nailways Darker Period- Halloween.

Here the tutorial from Julep. 

You have to zoom the read so to make it easier for you a cut it in pieces so you can easily see the steps.







You can see all of Julep's nail polish colors online.

Like I said if you make this look please let me know I would love to see :)

Here as promised some swatches of my new Seventeen polish. I only used one coat for this.


I really like this brand and every time when I am in Greece I have to buy at least one polish :)

Thank you for reading :)

Golden Autumn


Hi Everyone,

I am back from my vacation, so I will have some Greek vacation mani's for you. But also some Halloween and Fall/Autumn mani's too. I still have to upload my vacation pictures, so today an older mani I did last year but never showed on my blog yet.


Base Catrice C03 Spiced Bronze, stamped with BM04 and Konad SN green, SN yellow, SN pastel orange, SN red and SN brown. On my ring finger I've made a stamping decal with BM H11 stamped with Konad SN brown and colored them with all the other colors.

And some more pictures.


I forgot to take a swatch picture, I already had my stamping decal on my ring finger, but here you can still see a lot of the base color too.

Thanks for reading!

Mermaids


Hi everyone,

This mani I did in June I am so behind with blogging. I remember I could not get a good picture of this base polish..it was so shimmery. I believe I used my bf's phone instead of my camera.


Base Catrice C02 Never green before (such a gorgeous color). Stamped full nail swirls with Flormar Supershine 47 and Moyou Sailor 07. The 4 mermaids are from Vivid Lacquer VL23 stamped. And the 5th mermaid on my thumb is from Moyou Sailor 01 all stamped with Konad SN white. 

Also did a sort of matching pedi  Also Catrice C02 Never green before and stamped the bubbles and starfish from Moyou Sailor 01 using Konad SN white.

Thank you for reading!

Have a great day :)

Dream Flight nails for the Efteling (inspired by my shirt)

Hi Everyone,

Last Saturday me, my boyfriend, my sister and her boyfriend went to the Efteling, that is our most beautiful Dutch theme/amusement park. On 9 Saturdays in the Summer is it open till midnight, so we always go there once a year. So fun to be able to go in the rollercoasters in the dark. And everything is decorated with lights. The Efteling is also really beautiful park to walk in, lots of pretty trees and flowers and water. It has many rollercoasters and other "fast" stuff but also things for children (or people like me who still like those things too haha) When we were little we always went to the Fairytale Forest...we hadn't been in there for years but this day we said well lets walk through it too :)

I took some pictures of the Fairytale Forest, Dream Flight (you sit in little wagons and visit a fairytale world), The Carnival (also in little wagons and you see little dolls all over the world and visit many coutries) and also some other stuff ;) See below after the nail pics.

My nails were inspired by Dream Flight and my t-shirt that I wore that day. I have so many polishes but no cream dark grey so had to improvise and made a metallic magnetic grey polish matte :)

Base Essence Metallic (magnetic) 03 Steel me. Stamped with Winstonia W205 & W208 (mushrooms, bigger dandelion seed and fairy), Sugar Bubbles SB025 (dandelion and smaller seeds), Konad M36 (butterflies) and Moyou Fairytale 01 (twinkle stars). Using white and pastel polishes from Konad (SN pastel yellow, pastel green, pastel violet, pastel pink and pastel blue). Dotted some dots at the mushrooms and added some rhinestones on my ring finger...just like the bling on my t-shirt. I've made it all matte with Essie Matte About You.

Here a close up from the mani.

And one with my t-shirt in the background.

 A close up from my shirt.

 I also did a matching pedi, but the weather wasn't good enough for flip flops :(
The big butterfly is from Moyou Kitty 01 and the twinkle stars from Konad M14, the rest from the same plates already mentioned.

Also took a picture before I've made it matte.

And here a lot of pictures of that day :)


My big sister on a mushroom :)

A big troll ....oh wait that is me :P acting crazy on a mushroom too.
