NOTD: Fall roses

Waaaa most of the flowers are gone by the end of the Summer. I don't like flowers, but I do grow roses with a passion, they are one of the few flowers I can stomach.
So I wanted to pour all my melancholy over the end of rose season on these nails, full of Fall colors. I like how they turned out - but I still feel like there is something missing - maybe leave your answer in the comments? :)


The base polishes are all such that they feature shimmer or glitters, which means they look very cool when they move. And at the same time they are so hard to take photos off - infuriating. But feel free to drool over the Fantasy fire based accent nail, that looks like pure magic.


For this manicure I used MaxFactor Fantasy fire, Essence Irraplaceble, Catrice Khaki perry and In the armee glow as the base polishes. The stamps are made with a portion of the MoYou London Gothic 7 plate and BPS Black stamping nail polish and Barry M Gold foil on the accent nail.

NOTD: Dark glam

The temperatures are lower, the nights are longer and all the Fall trends are starting to roll in. Once more the season of dark colors, metallics and vampy glam is upon us. So to get ready for the upcoming Fall/Winter season I created this mani, that is trying to display all the usual trends that make their comeback in this time of the year.  


I love how these turned out! Can you see all the crazy dimensions of the mani? I used the Essence You are my sunshine, yellow shimmer polish I am holding here. It will never be opaque on its own, but to add it to a dark nail polish and you can see the magic right here! <3 


For this manicure I used Catrice Vino tinto as base, the dimensional stamps are made with Essence You are my sunshine and BM-316 stamping plate. The top stamps are made with Color club Gingerbread man and pueen45 stamping plate.

TUTORIAL: Holo bubble nail art

Sunny skies are the best time to take your holos out. Meaning the Summer months are the best time to wear holos, but they are a bit 'diva' when it comes to using them in nail art. You never know how it will turn out. So I decided to make this look with them, it is very simple, but the point is to show off as many holos as you can. 


For this manicure you need a dotting tool, with 2 different sized tips. A non holo neutral polish, I used Essence I got a crush on blue. And 3 holos, make sure they don't look to similar or it will all look like it is the same shade. I used Jade Hypnose, Color club Crystal baller and Harp on it. 


Step 1: Apply base nail polish. No need to be as messy as I was here :)
Step 2: Create 2 - 4 big dotts with the polish shade you want to shine most. Make sure these are the biggest ones.
Step 3: Make more big dots around the existing ones. They should be in a vague line, not all over the place.
Step 4: Make more big dotts with the last shade you choose. Also add smaller dots in all 3 colors, I was going for the look a bit like the small ones are falling off the big dots. 
Step 5: Clean up - There shouldn't be much of it. I honestly don't know why did I make such a mess here. 



Maybe I skipped a few steps in this tutorial. But I feel like you all get the point of it. At the same time it is a look that is meant to be created organically so I think if you attempt it there is no need to follow the exact placement.
