T.P.A. Group Challenge: 1. Inspired by Pop Art

Hi Girls!

The 31 Weeks Challenge is over but there is no need to worry! I am back with a new challenge: T.P.A. (The Polish Addict) Group Challenge (created by G :-).
If the 31 Weeks Challenge was hard, this will make us sweat!

The first challenge is Inspired by Pop Art. Though, huh?! :-)

My manicure:

Products I have used:
  • Astor Perfect Stay - Flashy Pink
  • Acrylic Paint (black, white, blue)
For those who don't recognize my poor pop art design, it's a piece from a blue heart with some dots. No, it's not a ladybird as my colleagues from work noticed :-)

At first it looked like this ...

... then I have added the dots:


The next challenge will be A flower and will be posted on the 7th of September, 2013.

  • Glitters - applied manually, one by one

The Polishes Challenge: 12. Prettiest

Hi Girls!

Today I am going to show you my prettiest untried polish. I just bought it 2 days ago :-D

It's a holographic polish, the second from my collection. I have forgotten how hard it is to take a good picture of a holographic polish! At a certain point, while taking pictures and failing continuously I wanted to throw the polish out the window and just get over it :-)

The polish is Flormar Glitter - Nr. GL 10

These are my best pictures of this polish:

Challenge 29: Water Marbled

Hi Girls!

Take a good look at today's manicure, because it's the first and possibly the last time you see a water marble design made by myself. 
I just hate this technique. It's so messy and time consuming and polish consuming and ...  so on :-P

Madalina from Miss Happy and Her Nails has suggested that I could try a dry water marble (tutorial here) and this is what I have done. 

Products I have used:
  • Natty - Nr. 372
  • Natty - Nr. 445
  • Rimmel - Nr. 58 Lemon Drop

Chaos & Crocodiles - Fireside Nights

Hi Girls!

After a long pause I am going to show you another Chaos & Crocodiles Polish, This time it's going to be the one that inspired my boyfriend to get me this collection: Fireside Nights.

In every picture I have seen of this polish, it was applied over a dark base color. I have decided to do something different. I have applied it in only one coat over OPI - My Vampire is Buff.
