This mani I created for the When Colours Collide challenge some time ago...

I dry-marbeled on my ÜberMat using essence Wild White Ways and royal blue Born Pretty Store stamping polish as base. Then I stamped some snowflakes using Barry M. Silver Foil and B. loves Plates let it snow pale. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top secured the stamping.

Chunky Sunset

I still have lots of quite old mani pictures on my computer, like this one from september. The colors clearly state "autumn", but as the winter weather still hasn't arrived in Switzerland, it feels more fall than winter...


As base I applied three coats of Born Pretty Store Sunset, and orange brown creme.

Then I added one coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Black, a slightly reddish tinted base filled with translucent multichrome hexes that show the whole rainbow. I really can't tell why there's "black" in name of this topper, since black and white are the only color it doesn't show... One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished the mani.

Frozen Skies

It hasn't really snowed yet where I live, but I do love my snowflake manis in winter...

My base are three coats of Born Pretty Store Blue Skies, a dove grey creme.

For the snowflakes I used Moniology Frozen, a white metallic, and Maniology plate MXM019 (both of the november stamping box). I added one coat of Maniology Smudge Free Top Coat to seal the stamping.

When Colours Collide: brown, beige & purple

I've been very lazy with blogging in the last couple of months, but with the new year, I try to do better. Let's start 2020 with the latest round of When Colours Collide.

I started with two coats of OPI Did You 'Ear About van Gogh?, a light beige creme. Then I sponged on a gradient using the OPI and Catrice Dulce & Havanna, a medium brown creme. My purple is MoYou London Purple House, the stamping plate I used is ÜberChic 15-03. I secured the stamping with one coat of Maniology Smudge Free Top Coat and added one coat of Essie Matte About You.

Yps lackiert Challenge: Sternenglanz & When Colours Collide: holographic and black

Today I've got a "two birds with one stone" mani ( = two challenges with one mani) for you. Yps Lackiert asked for starshine for her last challenge theme, white the When Colours Collide prompt was holographic and black.

I started with two coats of Essence Black Is Back and stamped the stars using Color Club Harp On It and Pueen plate 44. One coat of Maniology Smudge Free Top Coat protected the stamping.

When Colours Collide: Black, silver & gold

Oh boy, I'm sooo behind wit my blogging. I got a ton of pictures I need to edit and blogposts to write. So let's start here, with black, silver and gold for the When Colors Collide round that ended almost two weeks ago...

This color combo screams NYE for me, but that would be way to early, so I went with autumn trees. Two coats of Essence Black Is Back as a base, Barry M. Silver Foil and Gold Foil as stamping polishes and a double stamping pattern on the ÜberChic Lovely Leaves plate. Add some topcoat and voilà.

Yps lackiert Challenge: Cozy

A new week, a new round of the Yps lackiert Challenge. The prompt is cozy, and this always means one thing for me: time for sweater nails!

I used two Maniology stamping polishes for this one. My base are two coats of Woolly, a mauve creme.

For the knitted pattern I used Mocha Java, a copper metallic (it turned out quite different than it looks in the bottle. That happens if you don't swatch a polish before using it for nail art), and MoYou London Fashionista Collection 02 plate. One coat of Maniology Smudge Free Top Coat protected the stamping, one coat of Picture Polish G'Day Matte provided a (semi) matte finish (somehow none of my matte topcoats really worked here, I tried three different ones...)
