Tribal Chevron

Hey!
Today's mani was inspired by Very Emily, one of my favourite nail artists. It's all freehand and all Rimmel and acrylics. I loved this surprising colour combo and I knew I would recreate the mani the moment I saw it. For the tribal-ish design, I started with white base, made teal and violet chevron stripes and finished it with black tribal details.

Halloween Tribal

Hello!
Finally. I'm back home from the USA, the trip was awesome but I didn't have time to do my nails or to blog, so I ended up wearing this halloween mani for 14 days (!!). Minor chips occurred but I was pleasantly surprised how long it could last. I'm also a bit late with posting this (a bit? haha, 10 days), as it was meant for halloween.

Metallic

Hi!
I'm so behind with posting! I'm ashamed, but I'll be busy travelling during next few weeks so it probably won't get better any time soon. If you want to follow my most recent designs, be sure to check my Instagram ;) Let's have a look at todays design:


I wanted to use black and white acrylic paint and I also wanted to try this silver The New Black polish. I ended up with quite out-of-my-comfort-zone design.

Celebration Nails

Hi!
As some of you may know, there was a contest about a month (or two) ago at the Nailpolis to celebrate their reaching 1 million facebook fans. The task was to create ultimate celebration mani, you can find out more here. It sounded fun, so I decided to come up with something too.


And you know what? I won! :)
There were three winners and I was lucky enough to be one of them.

Sky High

Hello!


Today's design was supposed to look completely different. I was actually going for abstract geometric kind of design, but it went wrong at the beginning and I painted some swirls instead. So here I am posting another Van-Gogh-ish mani, another swirls, cause I love them so much.

Abstract Painting

Hey!
I did this design quite a long ago, few months I think, but somehow I didn't get to post it until now.


I got the inspiration from a painting I saw in my Art class in school, it looked very similar, but in red.

Pop Geometry (+tutorial)

Hey!
I sat down the other day to paint my nails without anything specific on my mind. I got to painting and I ended up with popular geometric pattern, or, whatever you want to call it.


Tutorial after the jump!

BP Store Review: Brushes & Acrylic Paint

Hi!
After I did the first Born Pretty Brush Kit review I realised I didn't have many detailing brushes. So I got some...


I painted these nail art wheel nails and then I trimmed the brushes down, they are thin, but I prefer thinner. Keep reading for a closer looks and some more about the paint I use.

Matte Dots & Candy Colors Fluorescent Polish #11 Review

Hello!
You know I have a thing for glowing nails, right? So far I only saw my nails glowing green-ish and I was quite curious about this red glowing polish I was about to try. I'll show you the nail art first...


I didn't know how to use neon pink in nail art, I don't really wear pinks and reds much, so I ended up with the simplest design: dots. I say neon but you see subtle pink? Oh yes, I'm sorry, my camera didn't capture the colour properly.


Continue reading for the review, photos of the red glow and most importantly more photos of glowing dotticure! Oh, and just so you know: picture heavy!
