Spring time...doggies in love

Hi Everyone,

Today a mani I've done a few weeks ago. It was one of my 2 entries in a Spring themed contest. They picked 5 finalist, this mani wasn't one of them, but my other entry was.

A subtle green/yellow gradient with Lime Crime Pastelchio and Lime Crime Crema de Limon. On top INM Nothern lights topcoat. Stamped the flowers with Konad PSN neon green and MoYou 216, the doggies in love are from MoYou 66, I made stamping decals of those and mirror stamped one doggy from stamper to stamper before coloring it. The heart is dotted with a dotting tool.

And another picture.

Also some swatches of the base. You can see the gradient better.

I really liked this base.

Thanks for reading.

MSMD inspired by Nicky NailsLove

Hi everyone,

The challenge in one of the Facebook groups was Monkey See Monkey Do. I wanted to do a mani from the lovely Nickynailslove I really love her work and she is such a sweet person too. I did not had much time to do a mani so mine version is really quick and not as pretty as hers ;)

I did not used the rhinestones and also did not made it matte. She also used a silver polish, I don't own a silver stamping polish so a used a lavender metallic one.

For the base I used Flormar 47 and on top Orly Royal Navy. I wasn't sure if the Orly polish would be opague enough so did one coat of the Flormar first. Stamped with China Glaze Sci-Fi and used BP-11 for both the images.

Here a close up from just my mani,

And also a swatch picture.

Enchanting Fairytales

Hi Everyone,

I did this mani for a guest blog over at The Beauty Of Nail Polish. You can read the full post there :) I was really honored when Tara invited me.

I did a Fairytale mani a few years ago using Moyou plates. And this mani is inspired by that one,  I really wanted to do another one with Nailways Darker Period – Fairy Tales plate.

For the base I did a gradient with Lime Crime Once in a Blue Mousse, Lime Crime Lavendairy and China Glaze Neon & On & On. On top I did Catrice C08 Have an ice day topcoat for the holo sparkles. I stamped the images from Nailways Darker Period – Fairy Tales plate using Konad black. And the yellow stars are from Konad M34 using Konad pastel yellow. The white stars are from Konad M3 using Born Pretty stamping polish white. Painted the black near my cuticles and the door and path to the castle.

Looking at my nails I really want to go to Disneyland….I have never been there and it is one of my dreams.

Here also some pictures of my gradient base with holo glitters.

Thanks for reading :)

Hearts on fire (adult version included)

Hi Everyone,

I did these for the Hearts on Fire Challenge a few weeks ago. I thought it was fun to give it a little adult twist too. You can see that in the 2nd picture.

I used BM312 for the yellow/orange/red flames, BM12 for the sort of black flames, Nailways Spring Time- Love is in the Air for the black hearts, Nailways Back to basic- 123ABC for the letters. 

Adult version on my thumb.
And I used XJ7 (bad Ebay dupe from the Handy plate) for the couple (to make her more look like a woman I gave her a pony tail and boobs ;)) The base is Lime Crime Milky Ways...thought it was a fitting name hehehe.

Here some swatches of the base.

I really love my Lime Crime polishes so happy I got them 2nd hand from a nail friend who was selling her polihs collection.

Thanks for reading.

Freehand: Spring Scenery

Hi Everyone,

Last week I did my 4th completely freehand mani. This reminds me I still have to post me 3rd one too. A Spring scenery with trees, flowers, plants, a butterfly, swan, dragonfly and a froggy on a lily leaf. I've done similar sceneries with stamping before and thought lets give it a try with a dotting tool and a brush now :) I like trying new things :) 

Base is Lime crime Once in a Blue Mousse and Lime Crime Pastelchio. Rest done with paint..no sure what kind of paint. But it is old and not that great.

Thanks for reading.
