Aqua Bubbles







After the somewhat dark and gloomy mani on monday, some more vivid colors for today.




I started with three coats of Girly Bits Get Weaponized, a vivid aqua/turquoise holo with tiny purple glitters in it.






Since the base reminded me of a tropical ocean, I added some bubbles using aEngland Tristam and MoYou London Sailor Collection plate 18. As usual, I added one coat of Bundle Monster Smudge Free Top Coat and one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. This mani was so sparkly, my camera had real problems focussing...

When Colours Collide: brown & silver





Another round of When Colours Collide ended yesterday, with the prompt brown and silver. Not your typical spring colors, but then, it was snowing yesterday morning, so I don't really feel spring-like anyway...




My base are three coats of Essence Who Is Mr. Brown (Marble Mania Limited Edition), a very dark chocolate brown creme. For the stamping I used aEngland Encore Margot (I just love this silver holo for stamping) and Born Pretty Store stamping plate BP-L015. Then I added one coat of Bundle Monster Smudge Free Top Coat and one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

Rhodium Suit






Some grey and silver for today.






As base I used three coats of Catrice So Suit! (FeMALE Limited Edition), a dark grey polish that dries to a semi-matte finish (ok, the matte finish is not visible, but worn alone without topcoat it's there). My glitter topper is Emily de Molly Rhodium, a clear base with lots of silver holo glitters in various sizes, mostltly hexes but also some squares. I used a genreous coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top for a smooth finish.
















Emily de Molly polishes are available on Etsy and at their own shop (Australia only) and at a lot of international stockists. Rhodium seems to be discontinued, I couldn't find it in the shops anymore.

When Colours Collide: Blue








The latest round of When Colours Collide ended over a week ago, but I have to admit, I was just too lazy to edit all the pictures in time... But now I'm ready, here's my all blue mani.




I went for a splatter mani, a really fun technique, but it's important to protect yourself and your environment with this one. So use tape, cuticle protection and a silicone mat (or an old newspaper) if you don't want to spend hours cleaning your hands and your table... The polishes I used are all MoYou London stamping polishes, Powder Blue as base and Chill Out and Winter Sky for the splatter. One generous coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top pade the surface feel smoother than it looked...

Envy of Success






St. Patrick's Day is over, but it's never too late for green manis, right?




My base is three coats of Zoya Envy, a very dark green jelly.

On top of Envy, I dabbed one coat of ILNP Success, a clear based flakie topper, shifting from various shades of green to pink. The pink hues are very camera shy, but I can definitely confirm they're clearly visible irl. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top gave the mani a smooth finish and some extra shine.

Aqua Violet Margot






After a very warm weekend, the temperatures have dropped again here in Switzerland. So my icy blue and silver combo fits the weather nicely (ok, a murky grey would fit even better, honestly...)




As base I used three coats of Models Own Aqua Violet.The name is very accurate, this polish is indeed a multichrome shimmer shifting from aqua over blue to violet/purple.






For the stamping I used aEngland Encore Margot and MoYou London Porcelain Collection plate 04. As usual, I added one coat of Bundle Monster Smudge Free Top Coat and one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.
