Nail of the day

Hi guys,

Since I got the Viva La Nails sample pack, I’ve been trying them out. My last manicure included a nail sticker from the sample pack. I was wearing Spruced up from Catrice (Expect the Unexpected Collection) and decided to add a sticker to my ring fingers. Here’s the result:



I like the design of the flower. I used a toothpick to apply the stickers to my nails. I tried one sticker without applying a topcoat above it, and one with topcoat. I’m definitly going to use a topcoat the next times. The sticker was gone after a few hours without topcoat!

I’m leaving to Montpellier tomorrow on a study trip, so there won’t be post until next Saturday.

Thanks for stopping by and have a day!

Viva La Nails Sample Pack

Hi guys!

Last week, I ordered the bloggers Sample Pack from Viva La Nails. They offer bloggers/vloggers a sample pack that includes 3 sheets with nail art stickers and 3 sheets with decals. You just have to pay 2,95£ for shipment and review the sample pack on your blog or vlog.

The nail art stickers include a red flowerdesign, flowers in different colors & a white butterlydesign:


The decals include a black flowerdesign, a blue/red flower design and a sheet with Christmas designs (yay!):


I didn’t own any nail art stickers/decals before I got this, so I am very excited to try these out. When I got them, I couldn’t resist trying them out. I added the a duo of pink-purple flowers on my ring fingers! I was wearing Secret Admirer from Sinful Colors at the time.


The stickers were very easy to apply. I used a toothpick to remove the sticker from the sheet and to place it on my nail. I don’t know how well these last on the fingers yet, but I’ll definitely give you an update when I review more of this sample pack!

Here’s a close up:


You can order these and many others on

Essie–Turquoise & Caicos

Hi guys,

The rainy and windy fall weather has reached us, so I wanted to bring some summer on my nails. Turquoise & Caicos is a part of the Resort Collection from Essie. It’s a beautiful turquoise color that indeed reminds me of the turquoise seas you see in Resort brochures etc.

The formula is pretty good, this needed 3 coats for a opaque coverage. Yesterday I went by Kruidvat in town and found a pretty striper from Essence called “03 Silver Surfer”. A friend of mine had already bought it in the past and I saw that the color looked very pretty for details on nails, so I got it for myself. When I got home I wanted to try it out, but didn’t want to remove T&C. So eventually I applied some stripes on it.

The striper is very easy to use and the formula of the silver polish is really good: a simple stroke gives a good coverage. I really like this color, I’m looking forward to using it for other designs and with other colors!

Blue & Silver

Hi guys!

I had some free time recently and got a little creative. I absolutly love Ski Teal We Drop from the Swiss collection of OPI (my current favorite polish). I was wearing it for the 333th time when I decided to get out my konad stuff and play a little. I wanted to paint a stroke in the middle with OPI – Suzy Says Feng Shui, so I used some painterstape to make it easy. After applying SSFS, I used a full image from konad plate m64. I stamped this image over the SSFS with Millenium from China Glaze. As a “finishing touch” I added two stripes in black on the sides. This is the result:



I think it worked out pretty well! =)

Misa: It’s You!

Hi guys!

Here’s the other Misa I got from the “What I like about you”-collection, like I promised! This one was the other one from the collection that took my attention. It seems to be gray on first sight, but it has a awesome duochrome thing going on! It has hints of blue/purple in some light! Really a unique polish in my collection, glad that I got it!

I’m sorry for the smudge on my nail, I only noticed it after taking the pictures. The application on this one was fine for me, same like What I Like About You! Definitly a must have I think!

Thank you guys for stopping by, hope you have a lovely day

Eyeko “Vintage” and "Rain" Polish

Hi everyone!

I recently won 2 eyeko polishes in a giveaway! I got Rain Polish and Vintage Polish. I have had other Eyeko polishes in the past from the old line, the cute small bottles with the metal cap (does anyone else have these?). I like the renewed polishes, but I haven’t had a chance yet to get some. I might put them on my Christmas list!

This one is “Rain Polish”, a gray/blue polish (duh, what else did you expect by looking at the name!). It think it’s a pretty color for fall.

The other one I got is “Vintage Polish”, a pretty mint polish.

Application of both polishes was ok for me. The formula was a little thick, but good enough to work with! Look how cute the bottles are! I like how they have unique labels for each polish!

You can get these polishes and others on the website of Eyeko. They have really cute nail polishes and often promotions so keep an eye on their website/twitter!

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day!

Black & white hearts

Hi guys! When I went on vacation to Ethiopia a few months ago, I found some nailart stripers. I found three colors: yellow, black and white. I still hadn’t tried these out, so I decided to try something simple with them. This is the result:

Striper hartjes black en white_wm

I used Models Own – Moody Grey as a base, added diagonal lines with the black & white stripers and finished of with a heart in the two colors. I’m not that handy when it comes to making lines with a free hand, but because of the stripers it went pretty well. Obviously I’m still not a pro, but maybe after some practice it will get better.


I really like the stripers because they provide two ways to use them. First of all, there’s a sharp metal point where the polish comes out. This is what I used for making the stripes and the hearts. But there is also a thin brush to use for more fluid lines. I haven’t used that yet, but I’ll surely will soon! The stripers contain 12ml of polish. I’ve done a little searching on ebay and found some shops who sell these stripers in packs of 12 (or more) with different colors. I’m considering of getting some, cause I’d really like to improve my nail art and these might do the trick!

My first Misa

Hi guys,

Hope you all are fine, wherever you are. It’s been a long time since I’ve written a post, I’m sorry. But I’ll try to update more often in the future!

I recently bought my first polish from Misa. I saw some awesome swatches from the “What I like about you”-collection on Lacquerized. I like every single one of this collection, but since I wasn’t familiar with polishes from Misa, I got myself “What I like about you”. It’s a very pretty brown with copper shimmer.

Misa - When You Say My Name_wm

I am really impressed with the formula. Applied very smooth in two coats. Another pluspoint is the brush, not too thick and not too small, perfect for my nails! I think this brand may take a spot in top 5 brands! I’ll have to try some other polishes from Misa first, off course. But I’m on the good way; after trying this polish, I also got “It’s You” from this collection. I’ll be showing you that one soon!

Do you guys have any recommendations from Misa? I already have Toxic Seduction and Dirty Sexy Money on my wishlist!

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
