Christmas Nails V.2 / Cant Hold Myself

Why is it so fun to create Christmas designs on nails ? I can’t stop myself ! Its like play doh but I can actually do whatever I want.

I got a cheap and quality brand so I got all the colors I want. Thats what I want to repeat here again ; find a cheap brand which you can use for drawing and dotting designs on your nails. There are some colors we actually don’t use frequently but we need them for small details. This way you won’t have to buy expensive nail polishes for every single seasonal design. They all work fine with a good top coat. Yes, a good top coat is what you are gonna spend your Childs milk money. We can’t go cheap with that !

This is the second Christmas nails I did this week and oh boy… I got tons of ideas cuz you know… I got internet connection and can steal all those great ideas so I can ruin them in my own style.

As you may realize I always use the dotting techniques ! I got the cheapest nail brush set ever made I am using every single possible device to create different sized dots. Even the scarf is made out of dots.

Plus, Buy glittery polishes ! This is the easiest way to save a shitty design and “mehhhh” colors.

rudolp2

A closer to my shiny fabulous work ! Which is not so perrrrfect because I got shaky hands like I am in an old shaky train station.

I am not a great designer or a nail artist or anything else , but I liked what I did.

I hope you like it too! Cuz this is not over my friend…

Easy Christmas Nails – Black & White Themed

Hello everyone !

I know its not always easy to be fabulous all the time, but Christmas or New Year is not one of those naked nail days. I still do nail art even if I am alone. I know there are others like me, members of the secret religion of nail painting.

I want to post a couple more easy / medium nail designs in following days. Here is the first one.

snownails

You see ! I am a realistic girl who makes designs for everyone ! You can make small changes and create many other versions of those. But I think you got the secret;

Dotting saves lifes ! Crystal ,shiny, glitter nails make great theme ! Use a toothpick or pencil tip or whatever you find as dotting tools.

snownails2

I used sponge dabbing techniques for the thumb nail, ring nail and little finger nail. I used my liquid latex in the process but you don’t have to. You can just be careful or clean your finger with q tips and acetone after dabbing the glitter or the nail polish.

I hope you like it! Thanks for visiting my blog !

How I Ruined My Nails and What To Do Know?

This is not a clickbait ! Yep, they might seem a bit longer than your expectations but when you look them closer you can see how they are so damn thin and …. and … (muffled crying noises) they PEEL !!!!! Everyday I have to file them down. Because they don’t grow longer than this ! Breaking from the corners or peeling unexpectedly!

brokennails

I broke a nail. Thats how it all started. It was tolerable for a while. But then I got a job which I needed to use keyboard and pencils (like a normal person). So I said to myself why not? Why don’t you file them all down and take a break and give them a fresh start. It will be a great opportunity the start a “how to grow your nails” journey like most of other bloggers.

brokennails2

I did it. I filed them to this length you see in the pictures. It was a month ago. Everything went wrong. You see… I thought I wouldn’t need so much nail oil since I got short nails. I am producing my own nail oil mixture at home. So I got many different oils and brown bottles etc.  I was so lazy about doing a simple mixture which I memorized long ago, I left   my nails to their own destiny.

Well well…. It was a bad decision . I wash my hand a lot cuz I got a dog and 2 cats ,and one of my cats got a skin disease which I need to take care of everyday.

brokennails3

My nails became fragile and they are peeling easily like a bunch of bananas .All those shiny and weird parts are because of peeling. If you are buffing your nails. Please don’t. Do you see how they make your nails shine, the resemblance ? Its because you are literally peeling your own nails !

The small bumps and lines are also the result of dehydration. Lots of soap and water soaking without oiling them creates this kind of paper thin nails. The result may be different depending on your major nail problem. Thats what laziness and not knowing my own body did to me. I am not sure if they are gonna be strong in a reasonable time.

But either way;

From now on you can see my nails growing or not , in front of your eyes ! What a time to be alive!

I will be talking about nail growing more than ever since I am gonna commit myself like hell! Cuz I like them long and natural ( we don’t like acrylic etc nails in my page but we follow them secretly  cuz they look gorgeous, hush…!)

Thank you for not expecting  18+ pictures of smashed nails. Cuz once upon a time it happened to my husband thanks to our angry dog! Not gonna post about it cuz its my show, not his.

Please feel free to contact for any questions comments or post ideas !

Liquid Palisade for French Manicure or Whatever / For super steady hands (probably aliens).

Hello everyone!

I had to take a mandatory break from blogging in order to do my job. I also had to cut my beautiful nails because I had to use my keyboard so much. I made one last post before I filed them down. So this is going to be my last post with long nails for a while. But this is a great opportunity to show you how I keep my nails healthy and how to grow them ! My next post is going to include the first week of regrowing my nails. So please enjoy my longest nails of my own personal history.

I recently bought this liquid latex (or palisade as they call it). But this was something different. It is a liquid latex for French manicure and for thin-brush-needed designs.

IMG_1800

It comes in a tiny bottle. Which I think its a little bit unfair. But I got their motivation in a couple minutes; this thing dries so fast I am not even sure I will find it in a “liquid”  form after a week. The brush is fairly usefull for its purpose. You can see the beautiful lilac color. It looks like a thin liquid in this picture but It is getting lumpy in seconds.

liquidlatexfrench

I used my Poshé Super Fast Drying Top Coat for this whole process. Because I don’t need any more surprises and this product is like a glass coat for all the polishes under it. I applied the Poshé top coat and I gave the Liquid Palisade its first shot.

As you can see the lilac color turns into a pastel, see-through, dead pink when it dries.

frenchpallisade

Now there is a big failure here ! My hands are already as shaky as an old woman who was drunk most of her life. I believe its an ancient curse on my family like;  ” let them shake but give them a hobby which they need to have steady hands”. Warning ! This product works only if you got rock-steady hands. So whats the point of buying this thing if I can already draw perfect lines?

liqpal

Here is another weird but kinda cute shapes??? But the Poshé top coat works perfectly good and shines bright like a diamond .

paliliq

So I decided to do some wavy lines, a French line and another black-nude arrow . I got a lucky moment and drew the French line perrrrffeect! But honestly I don’t believe its gonna happen again . And the black design was completely ruined on my first try. I had to work fast but still f.ked it up.

liqpali2

OH, THIS HORRIBLE BLOODY LOOK.

Ok, I am admitting  this was all on me. I was so bored and frustrated with this clumpy product I made some “red” mistakes. Give me a break ! We all know its an ugly job to clean red nail polish when you are already bored and tired.

Finally, I don’t think this product is necessary but If you want to try something different you may give it a chance. Only because it has a thin and actually working brush which is not very common in the world of liquid latex.

I hope you enjoyed my post! Please don’t hesitate to contact, comment or any kind of ruthless criticism=)

Bisoux!

Mani Of The Day + Soak Off Cotton Foil For Lazy A**es / Glitter Nail Polish Removal with Missha

Are you on your couch? Watching a crappy Tv Channel just because you cant find the remote control? Or spending the day in your comfy pajamas just because you dont need to go outside? You know, these kind of lazy attitudes? If your answer is “Yep, thats me.” This product may be your special game changer… on a minimal scale.

First of all, you should know that the easiest way to clean a glittery nail polish is wrapping the nails with aluminum foil, with  acetone soaked cottons inside. Its not so hard to prepare. Just some scissors, foil and cotton pads (balls). But when I saw this already-ready-to-use product with such a great price (~1$) at Missha, I knew I had to try it anyway. 

There are 12 of them in the package. I dont know why. 2 for bloggers? Or some 12 fingered lucky nail artists I dont know yet?Anyway, These foils are pretty “ready”, except you need to pour acetone on the small cotton pads before wrapping them around.

I created this look with FlormarPerfect Mink (03) and Barielle Shades, Pink Diamond. I wore it for almost 3 days before I remove them with this method. I sponge dabbed the pink Barielle polish in order to achieve a fully opaque look. So it is a pretty challenging situation for the product!


As you can see foils are a little bit thicker than the typical kitchen foils. When I pulled off the foils, I found it pretty useful but I think I needed to apply more pressure while pulling it off. There were still some nail polish remains but it was still wet by the acetone. So I wiped it out easily with a couple moves.

It is an interesting and low priced product. So why not? It definitely worth it. I can hear the other secret lazy a** peoples amazed voices. You are completely free to write what do you think about this product. Or maybe you wont feel like it if you are lazy ? 

Anyway , thank you for joining me on this almost-unnecessary journey!

See you soon!

Barielle Shades, Dazzling Diamonds Nail Polish Review & Swatches 

Hi everyone! I am back with the second set of  Barielle Shades series. And all I can say is these nail polishes are absolutely beyond my expectations. You see that print on the box? Fabulous Hues! Thats honestly not an exaggeration. I made a short research on google before I buy this selection, but I was not able to find a clear picture of the application. I know it is hard to capture Glitter and Shimmer. So I bought it online anyway. Because I like to live dangerously.

Left ===> Right

  • Stardust, 5237
  • Purple Hearts, 5243
  • Ebony Rainbow, 5242
  • Pink Diamond, 5238
  • Cherry Blossom Sparkler, 5239

  • Stardust;

This white, snowy polish would make a great top coat. But I wanted to show its original look in this post. It is more like a multicolored shimmer. I applied 2 coats on each nail of mine, except the ring finger nail. I dabbed the s*it out of it with a small make-up sponge. Of course I use Missha, The Style Nail Helper as liquid latex in order to simplify all those glittery mess.

  • Purple Hearts;

This is all purple glitter.  Multi sized glitter pieces combined with shimmer! It seems like I splashed some purple liquid metal on my nails. When I sponge dabbed e nail polish, I managed to achieve this half metallic, intense purple. I loved it! None of these include giant glitters except the purple one.

  • Ebony Rainbow; 

Isnt it poetically convenient for Autumn? The green, bronze and a small amount of different colored shimmers. The full opaque look of the nail polish is bronze with green hints. This is an interesting color which you cant see everyday.

  • Pink Diamond;

The color is so elegant and easy to eye, I am pretty sure this is gonna be the first one I will drain! It is fully shimmer. And it was already half-opaque in 2 coats, but I still sponge dabbed it in order to reveal its true beauty. 

  • Cherry Blossom Sparkler;

Well, thats a surprise. Every other nail polish in this set is clear based shimmer and glitter. But this is a jelly-like based shimmer polish. Its like strawberry jam on my nails! But the sponge dabbing killed it. Not in a good way. Some of  those shimmers are silver so it became silvery-opaque. I recommend applying 3 coats and voila! jelly nails !

*** When I found out these polishes are actually great in every possible way, I was also quite happy to find out I am not a stupid shopper. Because glitter is an obvious risk, which every sparkle-lover-human being is willing to take.
Like the “Diamonds Are Forever set, these nail polishes are good quality products. Easy to apply, great drying time and they look  surprisingly vivid. 
This second Review of the brand Barielle turned out to be the beginning of my love for the brand! 

Thanks for stopping by my page, I hope you liked it!

Barielle Shades, Diamonds Are Forever / Nail Polish Review & Swatches

Hello everyone! Joy of your nails is here! 
I stumbled upon to a great deal on a small online beauty shop. I bought two of these Diamond Series of Barielle half of the original price. I have never tried Barielle’s nail polishes before. So I can tell its been a great surprise because they turned out to be extremely easy to apply, fast drying and fabulous!

Left ===> Right 

  1. Out-Grey-Geous, 5082
  2. Coalest Day Of The Year, 5105
  3. Platimun Ring, 5220
  4. Sterling Silver, 5221
  5. Starry Sky, 5222

This is a pretty accurate photo of the package. The bundle includes 4 colored nail polishes and a clear + silver glitter nail polish. I applied the 5th polish of the serie as a top coat to make them more fabulous. But still, I needed to apply my Glossy-Top-Coat as a finishing touch. 

  • Out-Grey-Geous ( 5082 )

This is an ice blueish, shade-likely color. In the first picture you can see the first coat application on a Peel-off-base-coat. It was still not completely opaque after 3 coats and I believe it is more than enough. This isnt a wall to paint furiously. Those are my preccciooussssssss… ehem ! Precious nails! I still liked the shady shade. Actually I think it is intended to be non-opaque. Because half of the pack is opaque and the other half is on a low saturation

  • Coalest Day Of The Year ( 5105 )


The black shimmer is something I cant resist. It is the savior of every occasion. Almost every black shimmery nail polish is incredibly easy to apply. It means no brush lines and it saves a huge time during a rush. I still had to apply 3 coats, this is the second shade-like shade of the box. But I loved it. When I applied the silver-glitter on this black / blue shimmer, the name of the polish literally popped out! Dont you think it looks like snowing in the middle of night?

  • Platimun Ring ( 5221 )

This silver, platin nail polish is completely opaque in 1 coat. It is so easy to apply I will almost call it chrome. I applied 2 coats because I still got a couple lines to hide on my nails ( permanent old nail biter damage remains ). I have to admit the silver-glitter polish is like a fairy godmother who makes everything fabulous she touched.

  • Sterling Silver ( 5221 )

Yes, this is the cold-hearted b*tches color. It seems….. intimidating? I dont know what the hell is it but I liked the slightly-impossible-to-describe color. It has kinda green or yellow pigments. It looks like oil but it is surprisingly opaque too. 2 coats of course.

Finally I applied them on each finger side by side for you to compare the colors easly;


I can definitely say I would buy more product from the brand Barielle. The quality of the products amazed me because you know, these colors are dangerous and hard to produce and apply as they should be. Barielle got a 10 points like Gryfindor!

I am so excited ( because I am a 5 year old), because I got another set of Barielle to review, and it will be on my blog in a couple days. 

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this post and I would like to hear from you!

Keep in touch,

Mani Of The Day, Pink Ombre Nails + Smashed Fairy Top Coat

Hello, is it me you’re looking for?🎶

Even if not, you should be! Because I got some pretty “pretty” nails here. Did you ever worked for an hour on your nail art and it turned out to be a mess made by a 3 year old? The color is not opaque or somehow it turned out to be different than your expectations? I am sharing every single nail artists (professionals or amateurs like me) Big Secret! Apply a shimmery, glittery top coat to fake it ! 

In this case I was ment to show you some of the perfectly opaque nail art line of Flormar. But I end up here, hiding mistakes and giving the community’s darkest secrets like a traitor. Psssst! Yes you can draw with acrylic paint on your nails, and act like you can draw perfect lines. Because it is possible to scratch the acrylic paint without harming the base+polish+clear top combo! Dont let other nail bloggers know I shared  this or I am dead.

So, I intended to make ombre nails alone. But I underestimated the opaqueness of the polish and ended up with over-high dark pink ombre. I applied a smashed-fairy-like polish on top, and the glossy top coat too. 


This is the ombre process. You can see how the liquid latex of Missha becomes clear when it dries. Great news, it came in one piece. 


These are the nail polishes I use in the process;

  • Flormar, Party Pop Full Color Nail Enamel / 03 Hulo Hoop
  • Flormar, Full Color Nail Enamel / FC39 Rooftop Part 
  • Missha The Style, Crystal Nail Polish / K25M02 

Wait ! I even made a complete look of this Dreamy Purple Glitter Polish. You will find a full coverage version of the polish in the link.

Aaaaand this is the unnecessary big crystal of mine… Because I am so fancy only a giant crystal could be a match. Of course not. I am just trying to get rid of my useless sewing crystals. This was not ment to be worn for a day outside. In fact, later that day I removed the crystal, fixed it with a patch and went for a dinner. But if you got small and thin crystals, you can wear them without worrying. Still, I recommend you to wear your crystals at home at least for a test drive. So you wont have to deal with sh*tty polishes in the middle of …. I dont know, modeling? Or changing diapers? 

Anyway, I hope you like it. Thank you for visiting and please, feel free to contact for nail art requests or anything.

Mont Bleu, Glass Files, Classic & Swarovski & Everyday + Nail File Types / Now I Can Feel Fancy Even When I File Down My Nails! 

Hello every single reader out there! Today, I am going to review a product so useful, I cant even start because of my excitement!

I was a nail biter. It has been 10 years since this journey started. First I was using my moms thin metal files. Now I know these files are a disaster. They are ruining your nails with the worst possible way; tearing apart your nail fibers. And if you are filing to the opposite way (when you file from bottom to top direction) you are creating a pressure on your cuticule area. This may cause cracks on the sides. I used these metal files for almost 8 years.


In the last 2 years, I found about paper files, buffers and glass files. I never buff my nails, but it is a gentle file so I was using this kind of buffers as a main weapon. But it was not enough. Paper files were almost created for travels only and buffers are doomed to an early death.

So when I heard about the glass files I was glamoured. Somehow I mentioned to my grandmother these glass files as a ” great, new type of invention”. She just told me she bought one from Amsterdam in the early 60’s. What a weird world. Where did those glass files went between 60’s and 2010’s? God works in mysterious ways!

Anyway, I bought a couple different brands glass nail files from some local makeup stores. They are good . They dont damage nails but it is taking forever to shorten all 10 nails! Especially my suspiciouslystrong-thumb-nails. Plus, I swear the surface of the files are like almost dissolving in to thin air!

Then, I did my research and found about Mont Bleu! This is a Czezh Republic based brand and their main product is glass files. Somehow I ended up on their Wholesale and Partnership Website. I got everything wrong so I sent an email to Mont Bleu in order to purchase as an individual (There is no sales point in my country). But the company was so kind they offered to send me a sample. I mentioned them about my blog and they also sent me a Discount Code to share with you!

They post it the next morning ! I am living in Turkey and its been only a week and I already got my hands on those sparkly files! I was expecting only 1 nail file because its not a sponsorship or review demand, it is a kind gesture of Mont Bleu. But there were 3 of them.


Two of them came in black velvet covers, except the travel edition which has its own plastic case. The blue box is not included to the delivery but again, this is a gift. So maybe they include some sort of box with your purchase. I honestly dont know but when I shop from Mont Bleu, I will write a new review.


As you can see, this is the fancy one. It is a mini glass file decorated with shiny Swarovski crystals. After I receive this package I went to their website and lost my mind with the prettiest designed files ever. Not to mention there are thousands of them! Crystals are remarkably sparkling and I loved capturing it. Attention nail artists or instagrammers ! You cant take a bad photo with these!


This is the handy classic glass file of Mont Bleu. I used this one to shorten my nails as a trial, but actually all 3 file is the same as material. Top of the file is glossy and smooth, so you dont feel uncomfortable touching it.


Guys, I believe this is going to be like one of my arms. Simple and a strong case to carry with you wherever you go! It doesn’t have crystals or any fancy parts but I believe files are essentials in a womans bag. And if you prefer glass files, you dont need to switch between different files and grow the damage. Because as you may have been experienced before, glass files are fragile.

* I used these awesome files during my weekly treatment. But unfortunately my tripod is broken. So I had to delay the footage of filing down my nails.  Since I am gonna use these glass files until like… mmm forever ? You are gonna see them a lot. I will write and upload a detailed “file them down” video / post as soon as I can.

*I think Mont Bleu is probably producing one of the best glass nail files around. You can see 2 different glass files in the first photo of this post. When I touch them I can tell the gap of quality between these two and Mont Bleu files.

* Usually, I use at least 3 different nail file to achieve smooth nails. And I file them very carefully. Still I was able to feel the damage. These glass files are some sort of  Czech sorcery. They are extremely sensitive to pressure! It took me  a couple sloppy strikes to get use to it. Voila, now you can shorten your nails without using that butcher-nail-clipper thing! And you dont even need to spend hours. If you want to smooth a tiny crack, you can still use these files. Because obviously alien tech. I dont think their surface will disappear like the other ones. They seemed durable if you dont drop it. Also, you can always wash it! Nothing is a big deal for this invention!

* From now on, I will be using these game changer nail files. It is a rare product reaching beyond my expectations.

Mani Of The Day ; Sun Designs for a Sunny Day

Hello everyone! I had to do this simple but great look before the summer ends. I will often do nail designs which suits to summer till the first night with socks on!

So, an easy, shiny and seasonal nail design for anyone with a bobby pin and a toothpick. I used Flormar’s great nail polishes. They only need 1 coat to achieve an opaque look.

Of course I used my usual  Bump filling base coat and glossy top coat in the process. It was so shiny that I had a hard time capturing the orange sun on my ring finger. But be careful with the base coat I mentioned before. You need to apply a thin coat. Otherwise it will peel of piece by piece. And I recently started sealing the tips of my nails. I always thought that my nails are very thin to seal but I have to admit sealing really made a difference. The manicure you create will definitely last longer. 

I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by!
