Gradient in the middle

Hi all :)

This is a mani I did 1½ week ago - I had just gotten a cut on my index finger, so I'm kinda trying to hide it in the photos..

I had just recieved nail mail and three China Glaze polishes just screamed at me to be used in the same mani.. So I did.. I used Fancy Pants, Def Defying and Exotic Encounters. The nail art is inspired by The Nailasaurus..

It's a bit of an odd combo, these colors - but I liked it! And I really love Fancy Pants!

Have fun and take care =)

Alcatraz Waterfall

Hi all :)

I got Alcatraz... Rocks for my birthday and couldn't wait to wear it! I decided to do a waterfall mani, following the tutorial by the Nailasaurus. I wasn't able to get the fine stripes with pointy ends as she does, but I was okay satisfied with it anyway :)

I used Essie Cocktail Bling as a base and did the waterfall with Rimmel My Denim, Essie Smooth Sailing, H&M Notoriously Beautiful and Hot Makeup no. 23

I chose the colors for the waterfall by looking at my swatch stick for Alcatraz... Rocks, so that it would match. But when I put it on, it looked quite a bit more purple on my nails compared to my swatch stick, so the colors didn't match up anyway. Quite weird. I think I might have failed to shake the polish before swatching it, so some pigment was missing.. Oh well.. I need to swatch it over so it won't fool me again :)

You can see the difference in this photo:

Have fun and take care =)

Dotted New Year

Hi all :)

These were my New Years nails - they matched my dress, but I don't have a picture of it.. The pics are quite bad, but I thought I would share them anyway..

I used a base of Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Stocking Nude and Eyeko Saucy Polish with two coats of NYC Broadway Burgundy Frost on top. On top of the nude base I used LA Splash Sparkling Fire and Sinful Colors All About You. The dots are made with Stocking Nude.

Have fun and take care =)
