Happy Monday - Black & White: Stamped and framed!

Hi all :)

Today's Happy Monday prompt is 'black & white'. I wanted to do some stamping and afterwards thought it needed a frame..

I actually planned to try out the OPI Sheer Tints on top of it afterwards, because I thought I would get bored with black & white. But there's just something about a simple black and white mani, so I'm leaving it as it is.. for now.. :)

I used Sally Hansen White On,Wet'n'Wild Black Creme and image plate QA65.




Here's the other black & white manis:




And here's the overview of the challenge:



Have fun and take care =)

Inspired by stationary

Hi all :)

I've been gone for a while, but my exams are finally over,so hopefully I'll be more around these next weeks :)

For my first mani 'back' I wanted to use my new nail art brushes from StylishNailArtShop - and what better way to use them for the first time than by being inspired by the lovely stationary I recieved in my package together with the brushes?

First a collage:


I really like this, except my deformed white flower.. it ruins it a bit unfortunately.. But I love the colors and it's nice to have nail polish on my nails again :)



Here's the gradient, before the nail art:


As it says in the collage, I used the Pure Color No. 9 nail art brush and the polishes I used were Essie Absolutely Shore, China Glaze Grass Is Lime Greener, Be More Pacific and Gaga For Green, Sally Hansen White On and OPI I Just Can't Cope-Acabana.

Have fun and take care =)

Feathery white!

Hi all :)

Today I have the last manicure I did on top of Depend Gellack Turquoise Neon.

I used some water decals with white feathers. I originally wanted more than one on each hand, but for some reason the decals dissolved with topcoat - I only managed to secure on decal on each hand with topcoat, even though I used 6 decals :/ Such a shame, it's the first time I've had any problems with water decals.

For the other nails I used Dance Legend Aztec no. 4 (white shard glitter) and Top Sahara (textured topcoat). Funnily the Top Sahara only dried complety textured on some of the nails.. But to be fair I did put it on top of a soak off gel polish, not normal polish. I'm looking forward to trying it again on top of normal nail polish :)




So here's the total sum-up of all the Turquoise Neon manis:


Left to right: Turquoise, purple and blue skittlette - Triangular Turquoise - and of course today's mani: Feathery White

What do you think of the different manis?

Have fun and take care =)

Happy Monday - Negative Space: Triangled space

Hi all :)

I have this thing with triangles atm, apparently.. For this I used Super Black Dusted (Purple with green glass flecks), Diamond Cosmetics Don't Teal My Heart Away (teal) and OPI Skull & Glossbones (grey-ish). The design on my middle finger is copied from THIS mani by @msidarose on Instagram :)

I really love the colors in this mani =) And the design too, actually.. Yay!





Here's the other negative space manis:

Turquoise, blue and purple skittlette..

Hi all :)

I did a skittlette on top of Depend Gellack Turquoise Neon. I wanted to try a watermarble and do a double stamp with the triangle stamp from my last manicure. For the last nail I just did stripes. For the skittlette I used Cult Nails Wack Slacks, Essie Absolutely Shore and H&M Liberty Girl and QA66 for the stamping

Unfortunately I didn't give any good pictures of this, so I'm showing the three 'best'.. But I wasn't overly satisfied with this manicure, I don't know why, but it just didn't really do it for me..




That's it for now :)

Have fun and take care =)

Happy Monday - Neon: Triangular Turquoise

Hi all :)

Well, I have already 'spoiled' today's mani - it was in the picture I showed you yesterday with the 'true' color of Depend Gellack Turquoise Neon. But you'll see it again now and I even made a mini-tutorial that you'll get!

The stamp is QA66 done with Wet'n'Wild Black Creme. I love this image and wanna use it for a full mani!

I had the design on my index and pinkie too, but it smeared when I put on topcoat and I didn't have the time to redo it, so I just removed it (the wonders of a soak off gel mani) and didn't put a topcoat on the other nails.. Why I did topcoat on my index and pinkie first, I don't know :p


Unfortunately the stamping smudged on the thumb :(

So here's the tutorial.. I think it kinda explains itself, but of course I made it - so tell me if you need some step-by-step info :)




And in case you didn't see my post from yesterday, here's me trying to show the true color of Depend Gellack Turquoise Neon. I was so excited about this color that I needed the whole world to see it too and wince the camera didn't wanna help me, I had to make photoshop help me :p



And here's the list of our challenges =)


Check out the other neon manis :)




Have fun and take care =)

Depend Gellack Turquoise Neon

Hi all :)

I'm currently wearing Depend Gellack Turquoise Neon - and I've really been struggling with capturing the color on camera - it is after all a neon!

So I tried finding the closest color code macth in Photoshop - as it looks on my screen! Remember that colors varies on different screens, so this is how it looks from my screen point of view (if that even makes sense :p)

So i made this nifty collage to try and show it,, I hope it makes sense and maybe helps anyone figuring out if they would like the color before buying :)


The SOG itself is amazing! It's very opaque - the most opaque of the Depend Gellacks I have. Granted I only have three, but still! It's a neon. I used mostly 2 coats, on some of the nails I did an extra because I screwed up the application a bit..

I love this color to bits!

That is all for now :)

Have fun and take care =)
