Still sick... no posts!

Hi girls...

I'm still sick... Even after 7 days of sleeping (which always works best for me!) so I currently don't have the energy to polish my nails, take pictures and write posts... I'm sorry...

I hope to be back soon!

Tic... tac... Pepperoni time!

Hi everyone!

I'm still not feeling very well and lying in my bed with my laptop. Luckily I've shot these pictures a couple of days ago, so all I have to do is post them and go to sleep again :)

Today I want to show you my final stamped version of Wanna Pepperoni...

Basecolor: H&M Wanna Pepperoni (1 coat)
Stamping color: Wet'n Wild Black Crème
Stamping plate: XL B
Topcoat: Essence Nail Art Sealing Topcoat

I don't know if it's just me, but this design reminds me a bit of the inside of a clock...
Do you know what I mean? With the overlapping circles...

Like this:

Again I chose a design from the XL B plate from MagnoNails...

I own plate XL A too, but I actually like the images of plate XL B better...

What do you think of this manicure and these plates? Do you own a XL plate too?

Thanks for watching!

H&M Holiday Nailpolish set

Hi girls,

Look what I found at H&M's...

5 polishes for only €6,95!

I love the purple polish!

Just wanted to share this with you ♥

Thanks for watching!

Awaken Pepperoni + XL B

Hi girls!

Hope you're all doing ok.
At the moment I'm sick (yes, AGAIN!) so I'll keep this post short...

Basecolor: H&M Wanna Pepperoni (1 coat)
Stamping color: China Glaze Awaken
Stamping plate: XL B
Topcoat: Essence Nail Art Sealing Topcoat

This is one of the XL plates I've bought from MagnoNails quite a while ago, and I have hardly used it, so I wanted to try some of the designs on top of Wanna Pepperoni...

I don't really like the way Awaken turned out on Wanna Pepperoni, so I already removed it and stamped a different design on with a darker stampingcolor...

Curious? You'll see it soon...

Thanks for watching!

Wanna Pepperoni?

Hi girls!

Today I have a new H&M polish from their fall collection to show you...

H&M Wanna Pepperoni

Wanna Pepperoni  is kind of a mustard/olive colored crème polish which applies really easy en is higly pigmented... On these pictures I'm wearing only 1 coat!

It's definitely not a boring color, but a really outstanding olive-ish color.
Maybe not a color you'd wear often, or alone... :)

I grabbed my XL-plates from Magno Nails, which are really great and hardly used, and made two new manicures which I will post in the upcoming days, so keep checking ;)

Do you like this color or don't? Would you wear it?

Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish #4

Hi girls,

I've got another Guppy polish to show you...

Original (matte)
Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish #4

With topcoat

Original (matte)

With topcoat

Well... the application of this Guppy polish was a real pain in the ass! This polish is more sheer than the other Guppy polishes I've tried so far. So because of that, this is on some nails 3 and on some nails 4 coats. 

But the result was worthy! :)

Can't say which version I like most... the matte or shiny.
The shiny version looks more appealing in the pictures, but in real life the matte version looks very nice too!

But you have to admit: if you see this picture, you can't neglect the über glitters... They are so beautiful! ♥

Meanwhile, this is my little Guppy stash: 

Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish in #4, #12, #16 and #14...

I have two more polishes to show you... The black and the green Guppy's :)

Wanna see more swatches of these amazing polishes?

Have a great weekend! 

Thanks for reading!

OPI My Private Jet

Hi girls!

Today I have for you:

OPI My Private Jet

I believe this is the 2nd version... It's dark brown and in some lighting it almost looks black...
The first version is more charcoal...

2nd version of My Private Jet
It contains holographic glitters, but unfortunately there's no sun at the moment, so I've made some shots under my daylightlamp, in which the holo effect is much less visible...

My Private Jet is a crèmebased holo with very small glitter particles.
I'm wearing my favorite basecoat (CND Stickey Basecoat) an believe it or not, only one coat of My Private Jet!! Really!

I'm loving this polish! ♥ 

Don't know why I haven't used this polish earlier, it's in my stash for quite a while!?

I was actually searching for the 1st version, and ended up with this one, from eBay... 

Ah well... Eventually I'm loving this one too and I'm happy with it.

Which version of My Private Jet do you like most?

Thanks for reading!

Shopping: 3 Sleek palettes

Hi girls,

I'm so excited!! Today I received my latest online order:

3 Sleek I-divine mineral based eyeshadow palettes: Original, Oh So Special and Au Naturel...

Let's take a closer look at the palettes...

Au Naturel:

12 beautiful, earthy colors in matte and shimmer...

In sunlight

Oh So Special:

Again 12 beautiful colors in matte and shimmer...

In sunlight

With flash


 This time only 1 matte and the rest is shimmer...

In sunlight

I'm not so good in making eyeshadow swatches, but I swatched this last palette:

No eyeshadow base, only 1 swipe of eyeshadow...

Over all picture:

I'm so happy with these palettes!!

How I used it:
I've just received this palettes, so I haven't used these ones yet.

But I always use an eyeshadowbase underneath the eyeshadow to prevent creasing.

The pigmentation of these mineral based eyeshadows is really amazing. The swatches I've made are without primer or eyeshadowbase. These are just one swipe on each finger and then straight on my arm. It is of excellent quality. I have to admit now that I've tried the matte eyeshadows too, they are a bit less pigmented then the shimmer eyeshadows. Maybe the matte colors intensify when a primer or eyeshadowbase is used.

Availability & price:
The Sleek palettes are available on the internet in different webshops and on Ebay for ± €7,25 (about $10,-).

What do you think about Sleek palettes?

Foil manicure: Snakeskin

Hi girls,

Today not a polish but a foil manicure...

Basecolor: Color Club French Tip (white)
Foil: Snakeskin
Topcoat: Essence Nail Art Sealing Top Coat

This foil was a bit hard to work with... It wrinkled a bit while applying, but fortunately it doesn't show on my nails...

There are some bold spots, and unfortunately the foil crackled a bit when I applied my topcoat.

But after all, I think it is extraordinairy and I like this for wearing in the weekend (it's not really office-proof if you ask me.)

This is definitely not my best foil manicure, but like I said before, this type of foil was a bit hard to work with imo.

I don't know about you guys, but I like this type of foil manicures better than the real DIY Snakeskin-manicure. Have you ever seen it?

Watch this:

This is real snakeskin... Glued on nails... Isn't that weird and a bit disgusting too?

What do you think about this manicure? Which one do you prefer?

Thanks for reading!
