A small look back to last week. I was in the mood for turquoise and mint. First I painted my nails in the all time favourite mint apple candy from essie. Then I tried to upcycle the mani some days later by adding a zebra look to the tips. Generally a good idea but it probably needs some more practice plus the black Colorshow nailpolish doesn’t seem to be a good polish for stamping. And then I made a turquoise abstrakt collection of nails with my p2 pool side party nail polish in 020 turquoise sky, essie’s naughty nautical and urban turquoise by Maybelline. Enough colour for now. I think then next collection of colours will be neutrals.
WHAT IS IT? My inspiration for this nail art were the grey gentlemen from Michael Ende’s Momo, a quite disturbing children’s book. That left quite an imprint on me as a child. The book is very well known in Germany even though most people will only know that Momo is a girl and there are grey gentlemen, trying to catch her and that it has something to do with time. I tried to use different greys to create a suttle effect with different textures.WHAT IS USED? I now remember why I hardly ever use Catrice, 900 Steel my Heart, a semi matte metallic nailpolish in dark taupe. It has a great texture but it Continue reading
WHAT IS IT? It’s my favourite metallic nail polish, penny talk from last year’s mirror metallics limited edition by essie. It is just so pretty! I usually take this polish when I’m busy. It dries up super fast, in like a minute, and leaves your nails looking stunning. Today I added a bit of flavour by taping little triangles on the ring finger nail and painting them in two other mirror metallics.WHAT IS USED? 216A penny talk used as the base colour and Continue reading
WHAT IS IT? I do confess I bought these two nail polishes just for this Challenge as I haven’t had neither a black nor a white one for quite some time (of course that doesn’t mean I not once owned one, I think I’ve had about every main colour once although not in every specific shade). Now it was really really hard to decide with black and white I should do. I fell in love with this lightning bolt tutorial but then I found the black and white polka dot version. And if that wouldn’t have been enough I also found these little moustaches. So what did I do, I painted one hand with dots the other with lightning bolts and I realised in my test I have problems drawing moustaches with my left hand and general problems with working with my nail art pen on already painted nails and so decided against doing them.WHAT IS USED? I bought a cheap yet good black polish: Continue reading
WHAT IS IT? It is an explosion tape mani accentuating only the ring finger because first of all I think this nail polish can stand on its own. It is actually my favourite green at the moment. And then, I really have to admit, I was just to lazy to do this on all of my nails! WHAT IS USED: I started with Continue reading
