It’s a green kind of day

Hi everyone,

Today’s nailart is a combination of stripes and a gradient. I used various shades of green over a white base, to make the colours pop and be able to add the neat white lines between the colours. I created these lines by using striping tape and placing it horizontally on my nails. The different shades of green I used are ‘Stylenomics’ by Essie, ‘Run Forest Run’ by Catrice, ‘Wasabi hint’ by L’oreal, ‘Sold out forever’ by Catrice, and ‘Did someone say nude?’ by Essence, from the limited edition collection ‘Season of Extremes’.

TAG: Nail Polish Addict

Hi everyone,

Today I don’t have a nail art for you guys, but a Tag that has been going around for quite some time now. It is the nail polish addict tag, and below are the questions and my answers! (All the pictures included come from weheartit)

1. What’s your favourite nail polish company?
Hmm, although I do not own any of their polishes, I’ll go for OPI. I love their different colors and new inventions. For example the new top coat with real gold ‘Man With The Golden Gun’. My only problem with the OPI nail polishes is the price. It is right now just too tempting to buy more budget polishes instead of one OPI color, but my plan is to change that soon!

2. Glitter or no glitter?

This one is easy; no glitter. I like to make nail arts and then it isn’t convenient to use glitter. Also, glitter is a pain to get off your nails, which I find very annoying.

3. OPI, China Glaze, or Essie?

Again, I’ll go for OPI. I like their polishes more than the ones from China Glaze or Essie, just because of the amazing colors, funny names and successful xollaborations with famous artists.

4. When do you change your nail polish?

I change my nail polish when I have time for it, and as soon as it starts looking really horrible. I don’t like to have chipped nail polish on my nails, so I remove my nail polish quite often.

5. What’s your favorite color on your nails?

Wow, that’s a question I can’t answer! I like almost every color in my nails, and especially in a nail art. Although I do own a lot of blues and greens, I almost never wear them alone on my nails. This goes for actually every color that I own; I mostly wear a nail art instead of one plain color.

6. Darks or brights?

These are almost even, but I’ll go for the brights. I just use them more often, but I also really like the darks.

7. What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?

At this moment I’m wearing my Paris nails, as seen in this post.

8. Matte nails – in or out?

Definitely in. Although I don’t really care about the trends, and just choose what I like most. But matte is a definite yes for me, I just love it so much. It can give a completely different look to a nail polish, but I only like it when it is applied over just one color. So not over nail arts, which I usually make.

9. French manicure?

No, not my favorite. It can be nice if you just want neat nails without color, but personally I don’t think it is really special. What I do like is the French manicure with a twist; using different colors or combinations with matte and shiny.

10. Favorite Summer Colors?

I don’t really have a favorite color, I just like original nail arts!

I hope you liked reading this Tag, take it if you want to and share the fun! I’ll see you guys soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 10

Hi everyone,

Today I will show you my last nail art from the ‘first part’ of the 30 days nail art challenge! The challenge for day 10 is making a gradient nail art. It is possible you’ve seen more gradients on my blog, because I already showed one in this and this article. This time I decided to make a green gradient, using the colors nr. 08 Did someone say nude? (LE Season of extremes) from Essence, and nr. 240 Sold Out For Ever, and 340 Run Forest Run! from Catrice. I also used the top coat CO4 Shake It! Flake It! (LE Million Styles) from Catrice. Below is the other picture of this nail art, I hope you liked it and I will see you guys soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 9

Hi everyone,

Today I will continue with the 30 days nail art challenge. I’ve thought a lot about which nail art I wanted to make for day nine, were the challenge is to make a rainbow nail art. I first wanted to make nyancat-nails, but because I’ve made them before I decided to go for something new! I used the nail polish nr. 59 Black is back from Essence as a base. After letting that dry completely, I used the colors nr. 360 Raspberry Fields Forever, nr. 240 Sold Out For Ever, and nr.  400 Blue Cara Ciao from Catrice. I also used nr. 95 Wanna be your sunshine from Essence and a mixture of my brand less white and nr. 08 from Hema. I took my dottingtool and dipped into these different colors to make the hearts. It didn’t take me really long to make, but it took ages to dry completely! I like the happy and bright end result and I hope you like it to! Below is the other picture from this day’s nail art, and I will see you soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 4

Hi everyone,

Today I have the nail art that belongs to day 4 from the 30 days nail art challenge. The theme this time was green, and I decided to make a French manicure with a twist. I painted three nails light green with a dark green tip, and two nails dark green with a light green tip. The dark green I used is nr. 340 Run Forest Run from Catrice, and for the light green I used nr. 240 Sold Out For Ever which is also from Catrice. I think the nail art itself looks good, but it is a bit plain and simple. If you want to, you can easily add some details to it which will make it even more stand out. Below is another picture of the nail art, and I will see you guys soon!
