Guppy #12 layered with Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple

Hi girls!

Here's the Guppy/CUDDV polish #12 again, but now layered with Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple:


Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple has mainly orange and green holo glitter in it.
This are two coats layered over the black Guppy (CUDDV) Sanding Fruit Extract #12 which I showed you here.


This picture shows the green holo glitters better... I ♥ the look of the glitter in this angle better.


Hmmm... I think it's nice to experiment a bit with layering, but I don't think it's really my cup of tea.

So I experimented a bit more:


Hey! See those blue glitters? I didn't notice them before...?
I mattified this manicure with two coats of China Glaze Matte Magic and tadaaa...


I probably layered a bit too much at the time, because see what happened with my ringfinger and pinky?
The polishlayers started to lift!


I like this version better then the shiny version...

But still... I don't like it enough to wear it this way. So I'm going to take it off... :)

Which version do you like more?

Thanks for watching!

Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract #12

Hi girls!

Today I want to show you a black Guppy polish:

Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract #12

This Guppy (or CUDDV) polish is actually matte after applying, but I wanted to see the shiny version right after I'd applied it. So these pictures are with two layers of Seche Vite top coat.


Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract #12 is one of those polishes which has a gritty finish. Even with two thick layers of top coat, the grittyness is still showing. The polish itself applied pretty good; it was a bit on the thick side, so next time I'll use some thinner. Hopefully it applies a bit more equal then.


It has a nice silver glitter in it, which shows up better if you'll put topcoat over it.
I now realise that it is a bit stupid of me not taking pictures of the matte version (because the polish originally  dries matte.)


I think it's an advantage that this polish is a one coater. I just ♥ one coaters!
But my overall opinion about this polish is okay, but not too special...

So I experimented a bit with layering other polishes over it...

Keep tuned for more pictures soon!

Ruffian Manicure & 100th post!

Hi girls!

This is my 100th post! Yeeey!

Today I want to show you my version of a Ruffian Manicure...


Basecolor: China Glaze 2030
Topcolor: Wet 'n Wild Black Crème


I'm a bit embarrased about my nails... They're SO short! During my sickness they started to break and I couldn't do anything about it...


So yeah... Here are my little nubbins :(


I think I like this manicure... In real life it looks better than upclose, but for the first time, I think it's ok :)
Don't you?

What do you think about Ruffian Manicures? Would you wear it?

Thanks for watching!

Cool studs

Hi girls!

Yesterday my BFF was here and I experimented a bit with some studs we've bought at eBay...

Picture taken with phone...

She is wearing acrylics, so all I did was paint her nails with Wet 'n Wild Black Crème and put the studs on.


These are the studs (2mm), bought from fairynailart at eBay for a couple of dollars.


Putting the studs on was quite some work, but definitely worth a try. This was my first attempt and I think it worked out quite nice. The second attempt will be on my own nails, when they're looking a bit better then they do now (some of them broke while I was sick).

I would like to thank my BFF, ♥ you dear, it was fun experimenting on you! XOXO

What do you think about this manicure? Would you wear studs?


Thanks for watching!

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!

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

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!

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!

Shopping: OPI, China Glaze, Revlon, Essence, Catrice, BornPrettyStore, Guppy... and more!

Hi girls!

Hope you're doing ok? Fortunately I'm feeling better and getting back to work tomorrow...

Today I would like to show you some of the stuff I've bought this month.

Ready?


From Essence 2 bottles of nailpolish remover in Strawberry and Coconut scent (always better than the real smell :) )


From BornPrettyStore two fauxnad Konad plates, numbers m66 and m76...

BornPrettyStore m66

BornPrettyStore m76
I haven't tried their plates out yet, but I've read some good reviews about them. I compared them a bit with the real Konad plates and I think they look pretty much the same.
These plates were on sale for $1,55!


Nothing special, just two pump bottles which I like to use for my removers. Also from BornPrettyStore.


From Catrice 3 polishes from left to right: Poison Me, Poison You!, After Eight and Dirty Berry.


From Essence 2 more bottles of Nail Art Sealing Topcoat, (a back up bottle of) Special Effect Topper Circus Confetti, Special Effect Topper Hello Holo and From BornPrettyStore some apple scented nailpolish remover wipes (which I don't like... The scent is ok, but they just don't do the job well enough!)


From Essence 7 Colour & Go polishes (I forgot photographing one!) from left to right:

66 Shiny Godness
33 Just In Case
72 Time For Romance
77 In Style
55 Let's Get Lost
78 Blue Addicted
(85 Galactic Black, not on the pictures)


I'm not sure, but I think Catrice's After Eight and Essence In Style look a bit the same... Anyone know if they do irl?


From OPI 3 polishes from left to right: Moon Over Mumbai, My Private Jet (brownish), Royal Rajah Ruby.


I know there are many girls who find OPI is a bit overrated and highly overpriced, but I think their polishes are great. They have such nice collections and colours! I'm willing to pay that price anyway :)


From Guppy (or CUDDV, whatever the name is) 2 Sanding Fruit Extract polishes, in numbers 14 and 16.
They are unbelievable large! I don't think I've had such large bottles (16 ml!) before.
I saw number 17 on Nihrida's blog and got immediately interested in the finish of this polish. Had to try it myself! :)


And 4 other polishes. From left to right: H&M Moody Model, Revlon 092 Blue Lagoon, China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metallic in Tarnished Gold, en last but not least a very neon pink crackle polish from Laushine (again from BornPrettyStore).


And two small brushes from BornPrettyStore which I'm going to use as eyeliner brushes.

That was about it...

See anything you like? Want to see swatches? Let me know...


Goodnight!
