London Haul

Hi guys
Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I was on a mini citytrip to London! Hopefully I can make it up to you guys with some UK nail polish brands!
Before I went to London, I made a huge list of polishes/brands to check out. I wanted polishes from Barry M, Eyeko, Models Own, Accessorize, Bloom, Gosh, MUA, … But eventually I didn’t get many polishes! I only got the ones I REALLY wanted because I underestimated the prices!

Hi guys
I tried water marbling again. It went a lot better than previous times, but I’m still not that content. I used 3 polishes from Models Own: Moody Grey, Purple Grey and Turkish Delight.
Here’s the result:

Comparison: Greens

Hi guys
I have a comparison for you today. After I got Run Forest Run! from Catrice, I was curieus to see how this one compares to Enchanted Forest from Orly and Going Incognito from Essie.

Dress Maker with flowers

Hi guys

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?

Thanks for stopping by

Holographic Patchwork

Hi guys

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,

Run Forest Run!

Hi guys!

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!

Thanks for stopping by,

Blue floral manicure

Hi guys

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?
