Mani Swap With Not Your Average Nails

Yay reader, you are all witness to an historical event today: my first mani swap! And you are also witness to another historical moment on this blog: I've added a little logo to my pictures! :D

Becca from Not Your Average Nails and I are doing our first mani swap together - and I couldn't be more excited about it! After I had commented a few times on her amazing designs and how I would love to recreate them, Becca suggested we do a mani swap together! I had a lot of her designs on my "to recreate" wishlist, so I was more than eager to say yes!

Guest Post at Nerdy & Fleurty!

Yay I'm doing another guest post!

This time I'm helping out over at Nerdy & Fleurty - she doesn't have her camera for a few months so she asked me if I wanted to be part of her guest post series! I created this bright tribal leopard print for her - you can go read the blog post and see more pictures (including my right hand!) here! :D

I hope you like it, and definitely go browse Nerdy & Fleurty's blog too!

Summer Lovin' Tag

Aloha! (yes we're in a summery mood for the Summer Lovin' Tag!)

I got tagged by Andrea from Colour Your Life in a little game with questions; it's basically 10 questions about your favourite Summer things! I enjoyed reading Andrea's answers to it and since I had a bit of time I decided to immediately type a blog post about it myself :D

Let's Celebrate Nailpolis!


Today's design is my entry for the Nailpolis 1.000.000 Facebook fans contest! If you haven't heard of Nailpolis by now, it's an online "museum for nail art" where nail artists upload their work, can "like" other people's designs (kind of like on Tumblr) and get featured. You can also earn badges when you've done certain designs - I have a Watermelon Lover badge and a Space Explorer badge for example :) I love the badge idea!

For this contest, you had to make a festive design. Every entrant gets a limited edition badge and a gift certificate of $5 to spend in Live Love Polish, a new online polish store. I decided to take the "festive" theme literal, and painted some wrapped gifts and balloons with acrylic paint :)

Shimmer Polish - Alice

*Disclaimer: this product was provided for review. All opinions in this blogpost are my own and are not influenced by anything of anyone.

Goodmorning! Or goodnight, depending on your time zone.

Today I have another gorgeous Shimmer Polish to show you. I recently bought Pool Party from Ciaté, which is a vibrant (almost neon) blue. I thought it would pair great with Shimmer Polish Alice, which has holographical silver hexagons and circle glitters of various sizes in a clear base. There are also silver stars in this polish, but I did not get one out - which is pretty normal, as I didn't put the polish upside down beforehand and I only ever used the top layer of polish to put on my sponge. Next time I'm using this polish, I'll definitely be on the lookout for some stars! :)

Alice is really pretty, and because she consists of only silver glitter she can be combined with pretty much any polish colour. She can look soft and elegant, but at the same time she can be really eye catching, depending on how you combine her.

Happy Birthday Sanne! - Black & White Recreation

Hi everyone!

Today's post is a bit special - it's to celebrate someone's birthday! And to be more specific: Sanne of Nail Polish In My Eyes's birthday :) It was actually yesterday, but I only managed to publish this post today oops.

Her boyfriend Ron contacted me and a bunch of other bloggers to ask if we wanted to collaborate on a birthday surprise for her, and yes of course I wanted to help! We just had to create some nail art and Ron would bundle everything in a surprise birthday blog post for Sanne. I thought the idea was too sweet not to participate :)

I haven't been following Sanne's blog for very long (I actually discovered her through OMD2!) but I love her designs. So for Sanne's birthday, I decided to recreate on of her designs to show how inspiring she is.

Hellooo fellow polish lovers!

As you may recal, a few weeks ago I asked for your input in my very first indie polish purchases!

So today I'm showing you the first of my new cuties :)
