Lacke in Farbe und bunt - Hellblau





Lacke in Farbe und bunt is a weekly nail polish challenge by Lenas Sofa and Das Jahreszeitenhaus. Each week they have a new color scheme, and this week's color is light blue.









 The polish I chose is KBShimmer Wind Swarm. Wind Swarm is a light baby blue jelly with hex, dot and square glitters in various colors, yellow, blue, red, white, plus golden holo microglitter. I used three coats for opacity and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.
















KBShimmer polishes are sold on their website (US only) and at Harlow & Co.

Taupe Armor Falling Down





Today I have another golden oldie to share with you, it's from the Pahlish Winter 2013 collection and it's called Armor Falling Down.





Armor Falling Down has a greenish-brown, almost olive base filled with small golden flakie glitters. I used three coats and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.










Then I added some roses using Kiko Mirror Lacquer 617 (Taupe) and Born Pretty Store stamping plate BPL-024. Another coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this mani.









Pahlish polishes are available on Bigcartel and at Overall Beauty.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Nude & Color







Another week has passed and it's time for the next 40 Great Nail Art Ideas mani. The color scheme is nude and color, and my personal pattern prompt is tape mani.





As base color I chose Pahlish Proud Titania, a sand colored nude holo. I used three coats for opacity.





Since I learned about nail vinyls I got too lazy to cut nail tape, so I used What's Up Nails straight vinyls for the tape pattern. The vinyls are slightly wider than nail tape, so the lines also got a little wider. The topper color is Takko Créateur, a olive green with intense golden shimmer. After removing the vinyls, I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.


















Takko Lacquers are available at their own shop (US only), Femme Fatale and Mei Mei's Signatures, where I got mine.

Lacke in Farbe und bunt - Kupfer





Lacke in Farbe und bunt is a weekly nail polish challenge by Lenas Sofa and Das Jahreszeitenhaus. Each week they have a new color scheme, and this week's color is copper.





As base I used three coats of Essence James' Favorite Brown (Soul Sista LE), a brownish copper shimmer.





Then I dabbed on one coat of Femme Fatale Midsummer Petals, a clear based glitter topper with copper and pink glitters in hex and circle form, some of them holographic. I added one gengerous coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top for a smooth finish.















Femme Fatale polishes are available at their shop, Harlow & Co. , Norway Nails  and Color4Nails.

Where The King Goes, The Realm Follows




A long title, and a long name for a polish: Where The King Goes, The Realm Follows. It's by Cadillacquer, a swiss indie brand, as you probably know.






Where The King Goes, The Realm Follows has a turquoise base with small yellow hex glitters (or are they gold? It's hard to tell through the polish). I used three coats and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. The color scheme of Where The King Goes, The Realm Follows is very similar to Hare Bisbee (shown here), but the glitters are way smaller.



 










Cadillacquer polishes are available at Hypnotic Polish and at Harlow & Co. If you live in Switzerland you can also order the polishes directly from Madeleine (Miss Cadillacquer herself) via Email on her Blog.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Insects






Insects are this week's challenge theme. I'm not really into insects in general, but of course I do like butterflies, who doesn't?! So I went with some butterfly wings on my nails.




I started with three coats of Essie Pool Side Service, a muted, blue leaning teal creme.




On top of Pool Side Service I added two coats of Picture Polish Aurora, a sheer multichrome polish with some glitters in it, shifting from teal over blue, purple and pink to gold. It was nearly impossible to catch all the colors with my camera, you just have to believe me they're there.








Then I stamped the butterfly wind pattern using MoYou London Pro Collection plate 05 and P2 Eternal. Then I added some white dots using a dotting tool and Essie Blanc plus one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.









Picture Polish are available at  Harlow & Co., Pshiiit and their own shop (plus many more, here's a list of additional retailers).
