Saran Wrap Manicure (1st time)

Hi girls,

Today I'm showing you my first saran wrap manicure in blue and white...

I took the pictures straight after work, so it already became a bit dark outside, that's why the lighting is a bit poor...

This is my first saran wrap manicure and I quite like it actually!
First I painted my nails with a white polish, let that dry and grabbed a ball of clingfilm on which I painted a bit dark blue polish. I dabbed that on the white on all ten nails, let that dry and did the same with the light blue polish on top.

Here are the polishes I've used:

♥ Color Club French Tip (white, one coat)
♥ Essence Colour & Go The Boy Next Door (dark blue metallic)
♥ Essence Multi Dimension Fall For Me (light blue crème, discontinued)
♥ INM Out the Door topcoat (1 coat)

This picture is two days later (after I took the first pictures), taken by daylight...
Unfortunately it started to chip on my pointerfinger :(

These colours blended together remind me a bit of Delfts Blue porcelain, which is typically Dutch...

See what I mean? :)

Well for the first time, I think it's an okay manicure! :)

What do you think of my mani? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for watching!

Partially sponged neon manicure...


Today I have a quick post for you about a manicure I saw at Pinterest...

For this manicure I've used the following polishes:

☆ Essence - Icy Princess
☆ Color Club - Where's The Soirèe
☆ Catrice - You Better Think Pink
I've painted half my nails with YBTP and the other half with Icy Princess (both 2 coats). 
I sponged Color Club WTS to create a sort of line with a piece of kitchensponge and there you got it...!

I like this manicure pretty much...

What do you think about this manicure? Would you wear it yourself?

Thanks for stopping by!

R-E-S-P-I-N-K peachy cracked

Hi girls!

Today I tried my new Essence Crack Me peachy nailpolish over Catrice Aretha's R-E-S-P-I-N-K!

The lighting isn't all that (sorry, it's a phone pic), but I still kinda like the effect of both colours layered...

What do you think?

Do you still wear crackle nailpolishes? Or are you done with it?

A day in the life of...


I don't know if you're going to like this post, but I'm taking the risk :)

Lately I didn't have much time to polish properly, shoot pictures, blog about it etc. so I just wanted to give you a little peek in my life...

On my way to a party at daytime, in the backside of the car...
I'm wearing Essence Cool and The Gang (a blue jelly)

The view from our new house... Fall has entered... Isn't it pretty?

 I like to "design" sometimes and I'm really having fun doing it :D
It's so cool to customize sets in your own style... 
This is sooo my style!

My little princess' first time to the dentist... She was so cool... 
Not scared at all (although the picture shows something else, hihi!)
She got a big compliment about her pretty and clean teeth and a big sticker :D

Noooooo... my first parking ticket ever... :(
Bummer!! €55,-! 
I could have bought a lot of polishes for that money!

Baked some Tiramisu-cupcakes with my little princess

A pretty bouquet I got from my neighbour because I arranged the 10th birthday party of her daughter. 
It was a nailpolish/stampingparty for 8 girls. So cute and funny to see how they were having a hard time picking colours and designs... :D

Well... that was about it...

I hoped you enjoyed watching these pictures!

Icy Princess

Hi girls,

I'm making myself a new lightbox, so soon I will be producing decent pictures again! :)

Meanwhile I made some phonepictures of a silver foil polish from Essence:

Essence Icy Princess
Essence Icy Princess is a silver foil polish which is opaque in two coats. Essence has changed the layout of the bottles into rounder, with a more solid cap. The polish contains 8 ml now instead of 5 ml and, ofcourse, does cost a bit more now (but they're still very, very cheap!).

Old bottle (5 ml)

New bottle (8 ml)

Please don't mind my cuticles, they look horrible at the moment, but working on that! :)

Normally I'm not really into foil, metallic and frost finishes, but I kind of like this one... Maybe because of the silver color. I planned to stamp over it, but I was a bit busy at the weekend so I didn't have much time to do so.

Would you wear Icy Princess?

Thanks for stopping by!

Simple French Manicure...

Hi girls,

Today I have a simple French Manicure to show you...

Phone picture

I achieved this manicure with a French Manicure set from Essence:

I've bought this set about 10 years ago, I think, and I liked it so much, that I immediately bought two more back up-sets. The white polish in this little set is very good to make French tips with! These bottles contain 5 ml and the set was available in a milky pink (way more pastel and less pink then showed in the picture above!) and in a peachy set. I don't exactly remember how much this set was, but it couldn't be more than €3,99.

Ofcourse I used a basecoat, my favorite, Orly Nailtrition!

It actually is a nailhardener, but I always use it as a basecoat. It works wonders, I really have tried a lot of hardeners, but this is my alltime favorite!

BTW: Did you noticed my nails are a lot shorter??

Here's what happened...

I've accidentally cut my nail with a razorblade...! Such a big chunk out of my middle nail!
And it's my lefty, my photo-hand! Ohh nooooo... !

So yeah... I had to file them way shorter :(
In the 1st picture you still can see a little dent, but hopefully they soon grow a bit longer.

Do you like the simple and plain French Manicure?

Thanks for dropping by!

Essence - I ♥ Berlin

Hi girls!

Today I want to show you an older polish which I have in my stash for quite a while:

Essence - Love This City from the I ♥ Berlin-collection, some time ago...

Essence - Love This City

Essence - Love This City is a pink crème with a peachy undertone, so in some light it tends to be a bit coral. The formula is okay; not too thick, not too thin and the drying time was also regular (for me a big plus, because I always polish my nails right before I go to bed :) ) I'm wearing two coats here...

I've got a lot of compliments about the color of this polish, but I couldn't get used to this color.
I guess I'm more of a "pink"-type, and this color is a bit in between...

Unfortunately I chipped my left pointerfinger after wearing this color for only 1 day, but that's because my nail got stuck and bended... My fault, not the polish's :)

I don't know, I'm not really fond of this color... Strange enough, the polish looks more pink in the bottle than it does on my nails! Too bad... 

Oh... I have an Instagram picture which I wanted to share with you... 

My 3-year old princess... She just sat down on the couch to watch "Dora", so she finally sat still and I took my chance to shoot this picture with my Samsung Galaxy S2-phone...

I think it came out so nice... ♥

Well, that was about it... I hope you liked this post!

Thanks for watching!
