Pretty in Paisley

Hi lovelies!

A while ago, I did a manicure loosely inspired by my new shirt. Although the shirt is a bright flamingo-coralish pink, it has beautiful teal/turquoise patterns, with flowers and paisley. So I decided to do take the turquoise and the paisley to the manicure!

My base is two coats of Celestial Cosmetics "Celebrate with NYX", their celebratory 2nd birthday polish. This is just stunning. It is so bright, with so much linear holo, yet the holo doesn't even dull the colours in the shade. Perfectly concocted!

I stamped over it with BC-01. It is not the best quality stamping plate, the etching on this image is so fine that the stampers have a hard time picking up the image. But nontheless, it did the trick well enough. With all that sparkle underneath the image, nobody will notice ;)

What do you think? I wore this for two days, lol, which is very long for me.

Incidental Twin "The Righteous Man" - Supernatural Season Finale Tribute!

Hello lovelies!

Tonight the season finale of Supernatural will air (Amara, Chuck, The Mark, what will happen?! Also, I WANT CAS BACK!). I only recently got hooked on this show, but it took me a disturbingly short time to catch up... that's how good this show is. Sami from Incidental Twin has of course know this for ages and she has created a couple of polishes in honour of it. The one I have is "The Righteous Man", inspired by our gorgeous Dean <3

Manis for Rose: Pond Stamping

Hi lovelies!

Today we, a bunch of nail bloggers, led by the wonderful Jessica, present a special manicure for Roselynn of Manicured & Marvelous. She's been struggling with her health lately and we want to show our support  and love by recreating one of her manicures! I've been following her blog for ages and she's a great inspiration. She put the concept of pond stamping in my head, but I had not gotten around to doing it yet. This seems to me the perfect opportunity to try the technique she taught me!

HPB Presents: Neutrals & Neons

Hello lovelies!

We have another fun link-up this week! The theme is Neutrals & Neons, super fun! As it so happened, I just got a new beautiful neutral polish from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics, so I did't have to think twice!

Yay-my-friend-got-married mani!

Hi lovelies!

Today one of my dear friends got married. Yesterday I did her nails; we spent all afternoon coming up with the perfect manicure to accompany her dress. I don't have pics yet, so you'll get to see those later. In the meantime, I did my nails in a similar fashion, to manicurally (I invented another word, whoohoo!) celebrate with her!
