Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a flower nail design based on dots. I chose three of the colors from Zoya Naturel nail polish collection which I love. These are Zoya Normani (thumb), Zoya Brigitte (forefinger) and Zoya Chantal (pinkie). To get this nail design you need a dotting tool and some nail art studs/beads. On your middle and ring fingers paint 5 dots to form a flower. Then add micro beads in the center of each flower and finally ceal your design with a layer of top coat.

Hello lovelies!

Today I have for you another idea how to cheat the marble nail art and get the marble effect without water :)

To get these no water marble nails you will need 2 colors of your choice and a needle.

First, paint your base color
I chose white and salmon pink for my base colors. You need one thin layer of your base color. This technique works best with opaque formulas. After your first thin coat is dry, go ahead and apply a fat coat of the same color. Tip! Do one nail at a time to make sure your marble will blend beautifully.

Then, add a few drops of your second color while the base is still wet
I added the no water marble design for three of my nails. Spot large spots of your second color on your wet base. Do not attempt them to be perfect circles, it would not add to the final result.

Then, drag a needle across your nail while nail polish is still wet
I use the needle length to drag into the wet mixture of colors. This way it will not leave deep marks into your design. Tip! As nail polish dries, it becomes less flexible and your needle will start dragging some of the color with it, so be quick :)

Last, add a layer of top coat to smooth your marble even more
Adding a layer of top coat will also conceal any areas your needle left without enough color.

To finish off the design, I added micro beads to my little finger and thumb. I used a drop of clear  nail polish to attach them.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a mix&match Christmas nails idea. I love how it turned out, it reminds me of Christmas time wrap paper.

To get this look simply paint: your thumb and little fingers red; your ring finger white; your middle finger green; your forefinger gold. I added diagonal stripes and stars images to two of the nails and then some gold studs so that the whole composition would look like Christmas ornaments.

This was my mix&match Christmas nail art idea, I hope you enjoyed!

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 :)

Hello lovelies!

Today I have for you another stamping experiment I tried soon. I really like how precise and sharp the stamped snowflake images are but find them too harsh in the white-on-something option. So I figured I would enjoy the stamped snowflake more  in a jelly sandwich.

First, start with one jelly layer
The only jelly nail polish in my collection is a cobalt blue by LCN. Unfortunately, there is no number on name on the bottle, it must have faded away in time.

I think blue fits the wither theme so I started with a thin layer of the jelly formula to serve as my stamping base.

Then, add white snowflakes
My snowflake pattern is from the Bundle Monster Holiday image plates set I have reviewed earlier on the blog. The image is from plate BM-H02.

Last, add another layer of jelly formula
When you add the second jelly layer it builds up to develop the base color and at the same time it does not go too intense over your white image and stays transparent on it.

You can add your favorite top coat to increase design depth and shine.

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!

This post is a mixture of a tutorial, stamping nail art and a product review.

Bundle Monster 2013 Holiday Collection review
I am happy to share with you my love for this Bundle Monster stamping plate collection! I have loved it forever and when I was finally going to get my hands on it, Bundle Monster were so kind to offer is as blog sponsorship!

This is a collection of 25 image plates with a festive theme to all of them. I think this is a super versatile collection as you may pick images to match various Holidays and represent their spirit with nail art.

Browse the gallery below to find a detailed image as well as each plate’s individual code.

The plates have the usual round form. They are easy to use and especially to clean. Images  transfer easily and super clean. I have used the plates on several occasions with special stamping nail polish as well as with regular nail colors and have received the same beautiful effect every time.

You can get this set directly from the Bundle Monster web page.

Vintage multi color Balloon nails tutorial
Here is my first nail design with the Bundle Monster Holiday image plates. I chose BM-H 20 plate to transfer the balloon image on a white base.

I love this multi color vintage effect so much! You can recreate it by adding three colors of your choice on the image plate and then scrape the excess polish off. The scraper mixes a bit th color on the plate itself and when you transfer them the colors blend on your nail.

I added a matte top coat to help the images pop and got a ton of compliments :)
