Road Trip Nail Art & China Glaze Swatches

Hey there!
Today is a first. First swatch post! I didn't want to do a post with swatches only, so I took some inspiration and created new nail design for this collection I was swatching.
It was China Glaze Road Trip, which has been around for few months already, but for some reason it came to local (=Czech) distributors just about now. I got 6 shades of total 12 of the collection.
My road trip nail art was inspired by a top I bought on my last trip. I wanted to go detailed and really stick with the fabric pattern but I failed there and went with whatever-comes-to-my-mind tribal.


Keep reading for my first swatches and more nail art!

Matching Lace

Hello!
I'm feeling ill these days and that's the perfect time to dream and remember past cheerful days.
It was a month ago when we had a Venice-carnival-themed school ball. Nobody really took the carnival thing very seriously, but a lot of people brought masks - I was one of them. When I was thinking of my nail design for this event I was inspired by my dress and my mask, that I also decorated myself.

Distressed Wood

Hi!
I needed something subtle and classy for a formal event. I was thinking black and white, but I ended up with these, wood with ikat-ish chevron.

Flourish

Hey!
Sun is back! Or at least here it is :). So today I'm posting a fresh spring-ish mani I did a while ago and almost forgot to post.
It was inspired by vector flourish pictures and nature. I originally wanted to add there some flowers too, but I liked it as simple as it was just with the green swirls.

Retro Chic (+tutorial)

Hey guys!
I have a tutorial for you today :). I was looking forward to posting this but I didn't get to do it until now. This design was somehow inspired by Boom Nails, who did several similar designs earlier. I took pictures during the process so I have a tutorial for you below and a short review of the base polish: Nubar InstaChic.

Sugar & Cream

Hey!
Todays design was inspired by something I was seeing around this winter, simple sweather-ish pattern. The base is Cuccio polish Sugar & Cream, a colour I would probably never buy myself, but I got the chance to try it for a review. It didn't really go well with my skin tone I think, but I surprisingly like it now, looking at the pictures.

Melting Stripes (+tutorial)

Hello!
I have a tutorial for you today! I haven't done any in a long time so I was definitely up for doing this one when I was asked for it on the Instagram after a posted a picture of this design. The design was partly inspired by Try My Hand, talented nail blogger who stopped posting about a year ago.
Besides the tutorial I'll be doing a short review of the Nubar #loveit polish you can see below, Polycolor acrylic paint and Platinum nail art brush.


Tutorial and my tools after the jump.

Midnight Tribal

Hey!
I hope you're all having lovely holidays.
I did today's mani few weeks ago, it was supposed to be Christmas themed, but it turned out other way. Still you can see little trees and tiny fish that I painted to get it at least a little bit christmasy.
The day after I painted this I left to Germany for the whole week and I didn't get to take photos with my normal camera. I had to go with my cell phone and as I didn't really have time to play around with nails, my photos are rather bad. Forgive me this time, please.

Brocade Nails

Hi!
Do you remember my baroque nails? I even made a tutorial for them! And today I'm showing you a new version of my baroque design. I used it just as an accent nail, it was a busy week but I still wanted special nails.

Limited Stripes

Hello!
I had no idea what to call this design. I did it a while ago for a mani swap with talented Swiftpolish (picture of the swap at the end of this post) and I got a lot of positive reactions - and I also liked it very much myself.
