Hello lovelies!

Today I have for you a cute and super lazy Christmas tree nail idea. I love the nude base with neon glitter formula of Yes Love G1-5 glitter nail polish I reviewed below. I thought it would be fun if I added a Christmas tree on white base. I used striping tape to outline the tree and added a golden stud on top to embellish it.

Yes Love G1-5 neon glitter nail polish review
A few words regarding this Yes Love nail polish characteristics. This formula is a beautiful peachy nude base packed with different sized neon particles. The formula is rather sheer on two coats so for these nails I got full coverage in three layers. You get a lot of neon particles in this nail polish so you will not have to struggle to get any on your nails. The formula lasts for 4 days with top coat. It is difficult to remove so I suggest using the kitchen foil method to take all glitter off without rubbing and damaging your nail base.

You can get nail polishes from this range online, packed in 6 for a fair price. They are fun to wear, I have 6 and enjoy each of them :)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed!

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a quick and easy nail art idea with striping tape. To get the look below simply paint your nails nude and your ring finger white. Then add three pieces of striping tape to your middle finger tip and paint it white.

Nail polishes I used are my favorite white Essie Blanc and the beautiful nude Zoya Chantal.

Hello lovelies!

Today’s post will be a review of a super interesting formula by Dance Legend. This is Dance Legend Sunshine 195, which in reaction with light shifts its base color. Formula was very difficult to photograph as the second light hits it it gets darker…

When lighting is subtle Dance Legend Sunshine 195 is a milky off white shade with a slight pink hue. When hit bu direct sunlight, it turns into a vibrant dark purple shade.

Formula and application
Dance Legend Sunshine 195 color shifting formula is packed with different sizes gold glitter. It adds an extra something to your color and looks as beautiful on the lightest as well as the darkest nail polish color.

This nail polish is easy to apply and build, the first layer leaving you with a rather see through color which gets fully opaque by adding a second coat.

Wear
Dance Legend Sunshine 195 wears great for two days without a top coat and up to four with a top layer added. Adding a top coat will not ruin its color shift qualities so it is up to your preference how to wear it. Glitter is a bit difficult to remove so you might want to soak your nails in nail polish remover for 10 seconds before you attempt to take the color off.

My verdict
I love the idea of having a pink nude manicure while at the office which, with no effort, transforms to a beautiful purple shade for your walk in the park after work hours. Both colors are very wearable and will not get you bored for having the same nail color for days :)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed!

Hello lovelies!

Today I have for you a recent nude find I love. Meet Essie Mamba, a peachy nude nail polish which in my opinion is great for a yellow undertone complexion.

Formula and application
Essie Mamba is an opaque creme. Formula is creamy, easy to distribute, does not streak and builds to even coverage in two coats. Essie Mamba nail polish is packed with the usual fat Essie brush which gives you full control and helps steady application.

Formula dries relatively fast and you can easily expect tw layers to be good to go in a total of 5 minutes.

Wear
This peachy nude wears for 4 days with your usual 2 coats of color + one layer of top coat approach. However, I prefer to apply three coats of color because it wears great literally until you decide to change it. Chips, if they appear, are not too obvious due to the nude origin of Essie Mamba and helps wear a day more.

My verdict
Easy to get hold of and complementing to the skin tone, Essie Mamba is one of my all time favorite nude shades. It is also a great quality formula so I am two thumbs up for this one!

Hello nail art lovers!

I have missed you and posting so much lately! I have been increadibly busy and this is the reason why I cannot share nail art with you as often as I have inspiration to…

Anyways, today I have for you a simple nail art tutorial. It involves stamping and a clean nude+white design which will be perfect for a bride. Read on to see how I got this effect :)

First, start with a matte base
This wedding nail design is basically a stamped pattern on clean nails which has been topped with a French manicure formula to achieve the built in lace effect. To get a pefrect stamp on bare nails, start with applying a nail polish base which dries matte. This will help the stamp print best and adhere to your nail surface easily.

Then, add a stamp in white
After your matte base has dried, add a pattern of your choice to each nail. I used white to get a more romantic and clean look. My pattern is from my MoYou London Suki image plate.

Last, add a sheer nude
I love how a sheer nude formula makes the white pattern integrated into the nail design and softens any harshness. You can use a formula designed for a classic French manicure base. Mine is a bit yellow as I find this hue complements best my skin tone but you can use any you already own and like.

Thanks for having a look at my wedding nails idea, I hope you enjoyed!

Hello lovelies!

I am still in love with stamped nail art and the design opportunities it gives. Today I will show you a blue dragon theme stamp on nude base and will also share my thoughts on MoYou London Suki plate #7. So welcome back to my Stamping ABC post series where I learn and share about my newbie stamping nail art experience!

Nude Dragon theme stamped nail art
For this design I painted my nails nude using Zoya Chantal. You have seen my swatch and review in my Zoya Naturel nail polish collection post.

I find this opaque nude a great base for all kinds of stamp experiments. I wanted to try a stamp design with a different image on each nail so my Suki image plate was perfect for this. I used CND Midnight Sapphire nail polish to do the images. It is not a special stamping nail polish but I am happy how it worked. My top coat smudged some design parts a bit but again, it is also not a specially designed product for stamping so I could see that happen.

I love this design, it got a whole lot of attention and I could also test how some of my non stamping polishes work with stamping.

MoYou London Suki image plate #07
I have already raved about this image plate in my Stamping ABC post series intro post and now I have some more impressions to share.

MoYou London The Pro 03 stamping image plate

I am fairly impressed with the sole idea of this image plate design. It features several similar theme images overlaying and interacting with each other’s design. This image plate offers endless design options due to its design concept.

Suki #7 image plate is super easy to use, it has that plastic base which maes it easier to hold and manipulate. I have also used  it several times with regular nail color and it has worked beyond my expectations. It is easy to clean and its individuall package makes it easy to store too. I love this image plate by MoYou London and I would say it is a must have stamping product for every stamping nail art lover.
