My body/mind is so sick of summer, so I’ve been thinking about spring/summer a lot lately. My last manicure was also inspired by spring. I used Milani – Dress Maker as a base. I didn’t really like the application because I needed 3 coats for full coverage. I hate polishes that need 3 coats. Luckily the result was worth it. Gorgeous shimmer!
To add something extra, I decided to use water decals from Viva La Nails.
I really love this combination. I think I’ll do this more in spring, but instead of using Dress Maker, I’ll use Sold Out Forever from Catrice because it’s an exact dupe + 2 coats do the job!
Are you looking forward to spring/summer?

Like I mentioned before, I totally love patchwork mani’s. I wanted to do another one, so I grabbed my 3 holographic polishes from Color Club: Wild at Heart, Fashion Addict and Revvolution. This is the result:
The sun was shining, so I could take some pretty good pictures. I love the combination of the colors and the holographic effect. This takes me back to some great sunny summer days, hopefully winter won’t stay much longer!
I wish Color Club would make some more holographic polishes, they are absolutly my favorite! Wild at heart is my favorite. I think that Color Club would be able to make a pretty red holo… Lol, I think I should keep on dreaming.
Thanks for stopping by and until next time,

Today I’m showing you the other new polish from Catrice I got. It’s called Run Forest Run! and it’s a gorgeous dark green. It’s not very unique, but an excellent low-budget alternative!
I’m curious how this compares to other greens like Going Incognito from Essie and Enchanted Forest from Orly, so I’ll probably do a comparison soon, stay tuned!

Recently I decided to use my samples from Viva La Nails again! I wanted to use the beautiful blue floral water decals for such a long time, but I didn’t have any inspiration. Well, finally the day came that I had an idea about how to use them!
I used Models Own – Beth’s Blue as a base and created a gradient by sponging the lower half of my nails with Models Own – Betty Blue. After that I added some water decals from Viva La Nails (sheet: BLE244).
This is the result:
You can see that the swirlthingie (lol) on my ring finger isn’t complete, I think I messed it up by putting on top coat to soon.
I’m really happy with the result! I looove these water decals, they look very cute. They are also very easy to apply! I have them in a purple/red color so I’m definitely going to use them again! :)
What do you think?
