Frisch Lackiert Challenge: Mix & Match

Let's start the week with some mix and match for the Frisch Lackiert Challenge.

On the Frisch Lackiert blog it was mentioned, that the idea for this task came from the mix & match stamping plate collection by MoYou London. A perfect excuse to buy some new stamping plates, since I didn't own any of this collection ;-)

I started with two coats of Essence Black is Back. For the stamping I used my new MoYou London Mix & Match Collection plate 10, Kiko Mirror Lacquer 626 (Lawn Green), Colour Alike B. a Rudolph and B. a. Holy Night. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top protected the stamping.

Catching Fire

Catching Fire ist today's polish, and as you might have guessed, it's named after the Hunger Games trilogy (or quadrilogy, if you're looking at the movies instead of the books).

Catching Fire has a black jelly base with red and gold hexes and gold microglitter. The jelly base is very sheer, I used four coats and it was still nowhere near opaque. It didn't dry gritty, so one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top was enough for a smooth finish. 

It seems like sadly The Polish Well polishes are no longer available.

Frisch Lackiert Challenge: Chevrons

Let's start the week with some chevrons for the Frisch Lackiert Challenge.

I started with one coat of Essence Wild White ways and topped it with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. If you're working with tape or nail vinyls, it's very important to let the base dry completely, so I waited about an hour befor taking the next step. This was applying the chevron vinyls. You can buy them everywhere they sell nail vinyls, I got mine from What's Up Nails. Then I added OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Catrice ASHley and Essence Black Is Back. I did one nail at a time and rempved the vinyls immediatley after applying the polishes. After some drying time, I added another coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. To finish, I topped the mani with Picture Polish G'Day Matte.

Nail Crazies Unite: Inspired by Horror Movie


October is Halloween month, so the Nail Crazies Unite want to see manis inspired by horror movies.

Dark forests, a lake and something that's supposed to be a hockey mask. If you're into horror movies, you hopefully get what I was aiming at. If not, just take a peek at my last picture ;-)

I used Essence Black Is Back and Wild White Ways for the background and the hockey mask, MoYou London Surf's Up for the lake, MoYou London Into The Woods, an emerald green Born Pretty Store stamping polish and ÜberChic Woodland Chic plate for the woods. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top gave the mani some extra shine.

Overnight Leaves

Now that summer really seems to be over, it's time for my favorite color range: autumn. After mondays colorful leaves, more fall feelings are coming today.

As base I used three coats of ILNP Overnight Bag, a red shimmer with brown undertones and scattered holo sparkles. 

For the stamping, I used Barry M. Gold Foil and ÜberChic Lovely Leaves 3 plate. As usual, I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

I wore this mani for my week long trip to Poland last week, and it survived more than 8 days with only one minor chip on the last day. ILNP proves again, why it is one of my favorite brands!

ILNP polishes are available on Etsy, Hypnotic Polish, Harlow & Co. and at their own shop.

Frisch Lackiert Challenge: Herbstgefühle

The Frisch Lackiert Challenge starts an new round, and since I had much fun the last time, I'm participating again. The october/november set starts with the theme autumn feelings.

The first thing that comes into my mind when I thing about autumn is the colorful trees. So I went with a reverse stamped mani with autumn leaves. I used Pahlish Monte D'Or as a base (two coats), the ÜberChic Lovely Leaves plate for the pattern, Barry M. Gold Foil for the contours and Pahlish Fields Of Gold, e England Briarwood, Colory By Llarowe Billy Jean, Catrice Smooth Chocolate and Astor Golden Green for the leaves. One generous coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top secured the stamping.

aEngland polishes are available at various places, you'll find a complete list of retailers here.

Colors By llarowe are available at their own storeHypnotic polish, Color4Nails, Harlow & Co and a lot of other retailers. 

Pahlish polishes are available on their own shop and at Overall Beauty.

26 Great Nail Art Ideas: Blobbicure

Today's the last prompt of the 26 Great Nail Art Ideas (at least for this round, I sure hope there's going to be another one), and it's blobbicure.

My base color is Dollish Polish Walker Bait 163, a very dark, almost black murky green linear holo with a golden sheen. I used two coats on my accent nails, three on the ones where I'm wearing it on it's own.

For the blobs I used Girly Bits Giggity Giggity Goo, a silver linear holo with pink undertones. I applied it directly with the bottle brush on the fresh second coat of my base. For a blobbicure, you need to work fast and one nail at a time, if the base is only slightly dried, the blobs won't spread. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top gave the mani some extra shine.

Dollish Polish are available at their store. But careful, if you're a geek like me, and tend to buy polishes because they're named after your favorite movie or TV show, this shop is seriously dangerous for your wallet...

Girly Bits polishes are available at her own store, Harlow & Co. and Mei Mei's Signatures.
