Galaxy nails 2.0

Hi everyone,

Today I want to share with you these galaxy nails I created. When thinking of possible nail arts I could create, I remembered this technique I used a long time ago. I searched back for it on my blog and found it; over a year ago, I wrote this post about my galaxy nails. Today I decided to use the same method and the results can be seen below! I also included a comparison of the previous galaxy nail art I made and this one, to show the difference. The two left pictures are from the design I made a year ago, the two right pictures are from this week. Looking back at it like this, I think it is fun to see the progress I made with painting my nails!

NOTD: Call me Princess

Hi everyone,

Today I want to show you this gorgeous new pink polish. ‘Call me Princess’ from Catrice belongs to the Crushed Crystals line and has the typical liquid sand finish. It is a girly pink colour, packed with golden glitters. The only minor flaw in the polish is the coverage; although I applied three thin coats for this picture, the polish still isn’t fully opaque. However, in natural light this will not be noticed at all, which makes it truly a princess polish!

30 days nail art challenge day 19

Hi everyone,

Today I’m super excited to show you the galaxy nails I created for day 19 of the 30 days nail art challenge! I’ve always liked the galaxy nails, but they seemed so difficult to make, so I never came to creating them. When I saw today’s nail art is about galaxy nails I immediately started searching on YouTube for tutorials and inspiration. After seeing some great designs I started creating my own. As a base color I used nr. 59 Black is back from Essence. With a make-up sponge, I applied the colors nr. 580 Blues Brother Vol. II and nr. 620 Captain Sparrow’s Boat from Catrice on top of it. To add some glitter, I used the CO4 Shake It! Flake It! (LE Million Styles) from Catrice. After waiting for some time to allow everything to dry completely, I continued using my make-up sponge and the brand less white polish. With this, I created diagonal, horizontal and vertical ‘lines’ across my nails. On top of the white I applied yellow and pink, again with the make-up sponge. The nail polishes I used for this are nr. 95 Wanna be your sunshine by Essence and nr. 030 Meet Me At Coral Island by Catrice. Then I again applied the glitter top coat, followed by a layer of golden glitter top coat. To finish everything off, I applied a final regular top coat. I hope you like the design, and I’ll see you guys soon!

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 13

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while, but today I have another nail art for you guys! The challenge for day 13 was to create a nail art with animal print. I didn’t want to go for the standard leopard of zebra nails, so when a friend of mine came up with the idea of cow-nails I created them as soon as I got home from school. As a base color I used my brand less white polish (I know, I use it a lot haha) and then, using my dotting tool, I created the black spots. For the black spots I used nail polish nr. 59 Black is back from Essence. On my ring finger I used the polish nr. 480 Miss Piggy Reloaded from Catrice. The nail art didn’t take long to create and looks simple but cute. I hope you like it, and I’ll see you soon!

30 days nail art challenge day 12

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re enjoying your free Sunday, and that you’ll enjoy the nail art I made today! As you can see, the theme of today was stripes. I used the color 850 Aretha’s R-E-S-P-I-N-K from Catrice as a base color, and allowed it to dry completely. Then I applied nr. 59 Black is back from Essence on top of it. Using a toothpick, I drew the lines in the still wet black polish in such a way that the pink underneath it showed up. It’s quick, easy and fun, and can be combined with a lot of colors! Another fun idea is to first make a rainbow gradient as a base color and then to add the black and draw the lines in it. Below is the second picture of this nail art, and I hope to see you soon!

Miss sporty Nail patches

Hi everyone,

Source

Today I want to talk to you about the Fabulous Nail Patches from miss sporty. There are four different prints; Commando, Fierce Leopard, Sweet Heart en Zebra. I went to the shop and bought the print Sweet Heart. The nail patches promise to hold for ten days, and I will give you my review of them.

The nail patches have come in a long package, which contains 10 patches. I don’t think this is very handy, because if you ruin one of your nails, you don’t have a spare sticker to try it again. Furthermore I think the package is pretty good, it is simple black and white with pink details. I like the see-through part at the front, this makes it easy to see what you are buying. On the back are instructions of how to apply the patches, although these aren’t really precise.

If you open up the package you see the ten patches. They are easy to peel of the plastic, and can immediately be applied on your nails. Applying the patches is not really difficult, you just have to get used to it. Because of this, the first couple of nails I did didn’t look that good, but the others looked better although I still didn’t really like it. It is not as easy as it seems to file off the remaining part of the patch; the patches tear very easily. On the picture below you see how my nails looked when I applied all the nail patches. I don’t think it looks that good. You can see a lot of air bubble, even though I made them go away for a while, they keep coming back. You can also see that on my pink the patch is damaged at the side, this happened when I filed off the remaining part of the patch. Fortunately, the patches look a lot better on your nails if you don’t look this closely or if you move your hands like you normally do.

Overall I’m not completely satisfied with these nail patches, but they are not very expensive and if you look at them from a greater distance, they look a lot better. The miss sporty Nail patsches can be bought at the Etos in Holland for €2.99.
