Catrice Ombre Top Coat


Hello lovelies!

Something interesting appeared in my local drugstore this weekend and I thought everybody who sees it in store would like to know "Does it work?" So let me tell you my experience with Catrice Ombre Top Coat. (Now that I google it, it has been out there for a few weeks, I just have not set foot in my drug store much lately!)

So what they say is the following. Start out with any light colour. Then put one coat of of ombre top coat on the second nail, two coats on the third, ... you get it. So I tried it. I started out with a baby blue base, She Nail Enamel 304, that I picked up in Malta.

Polish Me Silly "Green Genie" for depression awareness


Hello lovelies!

Today we raise awareness for depression and related conditions. This has been initiated by @nailsandpolkadots and I want to contribute this mani, since I have seen depression in my direct surroundings and what it does to people. I chose to wear Polish Me Silly "Green Genie", which is green for today's #fightforlightandlive and a genie, for the recent passing of Robin Williams.

Hello lovelies!

Today happens to be the birthday of one of my friends from India, thus she is beginning a new cycle around the Sun. This inspired me to post this today, since today's mani features Ganapati, god of many good things and especially good beginnings.

Girly floral NailThins


Hello lovelies!

A while back, I won these floral NailThins from Pretty Darn Nails! (Speaking of which.. Did you enter my giveaways yet?! GO GO GO!) I created this cute mani with them:



LynBDesigns Absolutely Absolem


Hello lovelies!
Quick swatch today: LynBDesigns "Absolutely Absolem", from the Wonderland collection:

I used this earlier in this mani, so this swatch was actually done on my Cinderella hand ;) Look at the linear holo! And to amaze you further, when taken out of direct light, there are iridescent glitters everywhere to continue the sparkle... 
See, between the holo? It's awesome :D This is two easy coats. Application is flawless. Looooove!

#RedCoatTuesday - Lace & Polka Dots


Hello lovelies!

First of all, did you enter the giveaways that I'm part of/hosting? GO HERE
My current mani is to celebrate another PLL episode! Man I love that show. This mani is inspired by Paulina's Passions, but did not turn out they way I had envisioned it. And it's certainly not as perfectly clean as hers. But oh well... it's ok. Although it looks like a bunch of weird albino strawberries.
