When Colours Collide: Gold, Purple & White





For this round, When Colours Collide ask for a gold, purple and white mani.





I started with one coat of Essence Wild White Ways and sponged a gradient with the white Essence and MoYou London Purple Mouse, purple creme with grey undertones. For the stamping, I used Barry M. Gold Foil and ÜberChic plate 24-01. I secured the stamping with one coat of Bundle Monster Smudge Free Top Coat and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

Singing Towers





As you might know, I really love the british TV show Doctor Who, so when Pahlish presented a Doctor Who themed collection a while ago (ok, almost three years ago...) I had to get some of these polishes. Here's one of them.




I started with three coats of Pahlish Singing Towers, a chocolate brown jelly with vivid orange flakies and some holo sparkles. For the stamping I used Barry M. Gold Foil and ÜberChic plate 15-01. I secured the stamping with one coat of Bundle Monster Smudge Free Top Coat and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top on all nails.








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

Mayfield Navy






 It's time for some flakies!




I started with two coats of OPI Russian Navy, a midnight blue shimmer. On top of my base I dabbed one coat of ILNP Mayfield, a multichrome flakie topper showing blue, aqua, pink, purple and orange shades. Then I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.




As I love matte flakies, I added one coat of Picture Polish G'Day Matte for a satin finish.











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

Nail Crazies Unite: Christmas/Holiday Food/Drink







 
Nail Crazies Unite want to see Christmas or holiday food and drink today. The typical swiss Christmas dinner is Fondue Chinoise (meat fondue), which I absolutely love (my mum makes the best sauces), but is almost impossible to show on nails. So I went with cookies. Gingerbread men aren't really a thing here, but it was the only Christmas cookie pattern I found in my huge stash of stamping plates...




I started with two coats of Born Pretty Store Aloof (Melody Life Series), an emerald green creme. 

For the gingerbread men I used ÜberChic Happy Christmas plate, white and light brown Born Pretty Store stamping polish for a reverse stamping.  As you can see, I totally screwed up my ring finger, I just didn't let the stamping dry enough before applying it. But then, sometimes cookies melt together in the oven, and you still eat them, right? I secured the stamping with one coat of Bundle Monster Smudge Free Top Coat and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

When Colours Collide: Red, white and green





It's time for the next round of the When Colours Collide challenge, this week with the colors red, white and green.





I started with two coats of Essence Wild White Ways, a simple white creme. For the stamping I used my favorite red shimmer, A England Percival, and green Born Pretty Store stamping polish. I used two patterns of the ÜberChic 24-02 plate that are especially ment for double stamping. I secured the stamping with one coat of Bundle Monster Smudge Free Top Coat and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top for extra shine.

Frisch Lackiert Challenge: Sterne & Nordlichter







It's already time for the last prompt of the Frisch Lackiert Challenge for this round, stars and northern lights.




I started with two coats of Pretty Serious Hot Summer Nights, one of my "starry sky in a bottle" polishes, a midnight blue jelly with holo sparkles. I know the Aurora Borealis is a more of a winter thing and doesn't show in hot summer nights, but it's about the color, not the name of the polish, right? ;-)

The name of my "northern lights" polish is more fitting for the season, it's Winter Green by MoYou London. I sponged it on with a make up sponged and sealed it with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

Congratulations






November is almost over, soon winter starts (we had our first show this week, actually, but just some single flakes), so I guess it's time for my last fall foliage mani for this year.




My base is three coats of Enchanted Polish Congratulations, a multichrome holo in gold, orange and pink shades.




For the stamping, I used Barry M. Gold Foil and ÜberChic Lovely Leaves 3 plate. One coat of Bundle Monster Smudge Free Top Top protected the stamping, one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top gave extra shine.















Enchanted Polish are available at Pshiiit and their own shop.
