Mani Of The Day / Minnie & Mickey Mouse Nail Art 

Hello everyone! For todays manicure, I dived into the depths of Internet ( in this case pinterest & google images) and I brought together the most possible-at-home Minnie & Mickey Mouse Nail Art ideas around. There are so many of them, tomorrow I am going to do another version of this topic.

I hope you like it. If you try these at home please dont hesitate to send a photo of them to me ! 


As you can see everything except the bow is made of dots. I am not gonna lie, I tried that damn Mickey head 3 times. Still some of my white base is noticeable in that shimmery head. I used the Flormar, Glitter- Blackstar for the balck designs. Its is a gorgeous black shimmer. Any kind of basic red and white polish would work for the other colors. Of course you can choose any color as I picked a shimmery black. I had a red crystal already so I used it for some fancy sparkles.

You can see some shimmer here. I hope you find it possible and nice. 

Thanks for stopping by! If you liked it dont forget to check here tomorrow because more Minnie & Mickey are pending!

Bisoux,

Flormar Glitter & Shimmer Nail Polish / Fancy as F! Swatches 

Hello my fabulous readers! As you may have been notice, I was gone for a while but I came back with a great nail polish stock and many ideas ! But today I am going to show off my all fancy side. 

I recently discovered a Turkish brand Flormar. It is the most used common brand in nail salons here. I just never knew they produce more than basics. I also reviewed and loved Flormar Nail Art Tools too.

I got 3 glitter / shimmer nail polishes fancy as hell and I am not afraid to show my womanhood! 

Flormar Glitter / Blackstar – GL 10
No way! They produce great shimmer and they call it Glitter! This should be a crime. But I forgive them because this shimmers are also holographic! Top photo is the first coat of it and the rest is 2 coated. I want to show it under multiple lightenings but the dominant look is represented in the bigger photo.

Flormar Glitter / Multicolor Shine – GL9

Thats actual glitter plus blue shimmers. I applied white and black base coats.You can also see how it does not cover well on my naked nails. 

These nebula colors… I fell in love with them on the first sight but the sticky formula made it impossible to apply multiple coats. You have to use the sponge dabbing technique if you want full coverage . Actually. all glitter included polishes have to be applied with a sponge. I will make a post  about it asap.

Flormar Up To 7 Days Shine & Color / Glamorous Gold DP01

I saved the best for a glorious final. This is a different line of polish from the same brand. I wish I had multiple versions of this. In my opinion it looks better then reel gold. Best part is , it includes glitter and shimmer together. This polish creates a fairy fleaky look which I will use very often, obviously. 


Even the bottle looks like a potion stolen from a fairy tale. You know what? I suddenly felt richer. 

Can you believe I only applied 2 thin coats. I didnt even bother to pick glitters with my brush. On my index finger nail I didnt use a base coat so you can see how efficient the nail polish is. This is definitely my favorite. 

You can shop internationally from the brands website ; http://www.flormar.com

The brand does not sponsor me. I strongly recommend this brand with my own free will. They dont use toxic products such as paraben and versions of it. Their prices are incredibly low compared to the product quality. Actually the prices are madly low. Because you see 1 American Dollar worths approximately 3,5 Turkish Liras. And this is a Turkish brand ( started as a German brand, bought by a company from Turkey in 80’s). 

What do you think about these nail polishes ? Which one is your favorite ? Tell me about it so I can decide what I am going to purchase and review next! 

Thank you for stopping by ! I will be posting 3-4 times in a week like I used to, so keep in touch if you got any questions or nail art/ product review requests.

Bisoux!

Flormar Nail Art Tool & Brush Review and Some Mess I Made

Hello good people out there! I know you are good because I am sure you are gonna forgive my so called “nail art”.

I bought a Nail Art Tool Kit from Flormar. It is a non toxic good brand which specializes on nail products. They also produce make up products lately but I didnt try them yet. But every single nail salon in my country uses this brand if the salon is not a luxury one.

  1. The game changer cleaner. It is an angled brush which is very effective on cleaning nail polish remains from cuticules! Sorry I missed the middle finger.
  2. The small dotting tool. This is an essential item for nai art. Sure you can use a bobby pin but it is very affordable, easy to clean and you can manage painting small detail with this tool. I used this to create the flowers on my middle and pinky nails.
  3. A line brush.  Consumers are supposed to use this for long lines but I didnt like it. It doesnt hold the polish well and it is not easy to control the movement of this thin, long brush. The lines one my middle and pinky nails are made with this item.
  4. This is a fan brush. It is meant to be used for shimmer, glitter and powder products. But as you can see on my thumb nail. I used it to create a double sided design.
  5. I dont know what this is called but this brush is perfect for creating a texture by stamping it on the nail. I dont use the tip of course for this sort of effects, I use its side by pressing it. You can see the texture on my index and ring nail. I made some ugly pedals I guess.
  6. A simple thin brush to draw anything! I loved it! I used it to paint the white parts of the pedal on my ring finger nail. It created a more dimensioned flower.



    This is my second attempt with the tools. I tried to create a painting here. Each nail is a part of a single image. I promise I will develop my skills and sorry about some messes I made.

    Oooh! I can still see the little house and the clouds! It is not a perfect peel because the white polish I use as the base, is not a good quality product.

    And additionally I wanted to share the napkin I used during the creation of this nail art. I dont know I just liked it!

    Thanks for reading me!

    Dont be shy, contact me! Make a request or write just to be friends!

    Mani Of The Day (Vol.5) / Flormar “No Uv Lamp” Gel System

    Hello again my friend!

    Did you applied your nail oil after my reminder earlier today? If not, you can apply it while you read my simple but lovely nail art with Flormar / Up To 7 Days, Shine & Color.

    I bought this a while ago and forgot it. What a regret!

    Flormar, Up To 7 days / 027 / Mythical Tale
     
    This is a 2 step product. But as some of you may know I’ve been using a Peel-off-base-Coat since I start blogging. Because too much acetone obviously damages my precioussss nailllssssss.

    • I applied 2 coats of Step 1 after my usual Peel-off-base-coat. This is the colored polish part of application. 
    • Apply the Step 2. This bottle is some kind of thick, clear, gel top coat. Both polishes dries really fast. Approximately 3 minutes!
    • I use a thin brushes tip to paint the flowers.
    • Apply the same top coat. Not a different kind! I can feel its ingredients and textures are not the same as usual top coats so I wouldnt risk it.


      This color is incredibly beautiful! It suits every season and shines bright like a diamond! I will definitely purchase other colors of this NO UV LAMP series. 


      But, I used a black shade of this product before I do this nail art / review and I can tell you there is no way it lasts Up to 7 Days. You can have 3 shiny un-chipped, perfectly-polished days. And they will look perfect for those 3 days.

      I absolutely recommend this polish if you hate UV Lamps, and craving for that glossy, gel look !

      And The Big Finally!

      It peels so much better if you wait long enough between coats and after the top coat.

      Thanks for stopping by and please keep in touch !

      Bisoux,

      Mani Of The Day (Vol.3) / Heart Shaped Nails With Sally Hansen 

      Hello people who googles or tags nail stuff that nobody cares besides us ! The witches who cares too much and creates nail-art !

      I got inspired by the beautiful almond shaped nail owner Polished by Amy. Off course my nails are not in the right shape. But I added some changes to highlight the heart shape.

       Sally Hansen got this nice and life full red shade which is perfect for this design.

      Sally Hansen/ Right Said Red 570

      It is actually easy to create. Just 2 brush strikes ” \ / “ Voila! A beautiful heart!

      I made the small pink hearts with a thin brush. I basically put 3 dots and complete the hole.

      Off course, I used the Missha The Style Peel-off-Base-Coat because it is easier and probably healtier than acetone .I am going to do many more manicures and nail arts so we are gonna need it. It really works great! If you are clumsy like me this means you are going to need a lot of white pages with your designs! 

      A ( also a peel off if you are doing nail art daily) base and a good top coat are essentials, you better find quality products at least for these two.

      What do you think about this little hearts? Is it looking good on square nails too? Because I know you can see the edges of my nails.

      PS: This is Amy’s youtube channel you can watch the original video which ispired me and more here!

      Take care of your hands people!

      Mani of the Day (Vol.2) / Sally Hansen Nail Strips

      Today I got Sally Hansen,Salon Effects, Real Nail Polish Strips.


      There are 16 strips in the package but I used a set for some nail art before ,so I got 9 here.But hey I still dont have a tripod so we only need 5 to look fabulous on camera! They came in 2 seperated, sealed packages. If you open it you have to use it because they dry after air gets in. I had a left over polish outside of the sealed package it was like a stone and break into dust.

      • Peel the top ,
      • Peel the bottom with metallic small handle
      • Hold it from the tip ( Its not too sticky so very easy to apply)
      • Put it on your nail slow and carefully! You can move it a bit after you put it but you can guess your limits once you touch it!
      • Use the short orange stick which came in the box to cut the excess parts.
      • Finally file the grains of polish with the small file in the box.

      Apply Top Coat to set it! 


        I can use this for short  time wearing! If you dont have the time to do some nail art these stripes are exceptional. It can last up to 2 days if you apply it smooth and properly.

        Have a wonderful weekend!

        Mani of the Day ; Missha / The Stlyle Lucid Nail Polish VL11

        Hey everyone ! 

        You know I love Missha/ The Style nail products. Todays manicure includes a color between lilac and grey.

        I loved the color and the heart shaped bottle. It is easy to apply but I still got lines on my damaged nails. So it needs 3 coats to be completely opac.

        Not in My Blog! Aint nobody got time for that ! 

        I used my The Style Peel-of-Base-Coat & Quick-Dry-Top-Coat for this look. They became essentials in my life. 

        Look at this cap ! So many colors because its holographic! Its not relevant to the polish itself but it looks great ! 

        But, God I hated the smell of this lilac polish ! So strong and it doesnt dissappear.

        Still, I think it looks good. What do you think? Is it worth the smell? 
        Oh the bumpy roads of beautyfying the dead ( but can still absorbe toxics!) parts of your body

        See you soon on The Missha / Sunscreen review!

        Bisoux !

        Nail Care Routine / Summer Damages Repaired 

        Nice to be here again ! This blog seriously started to grow on me. I actually need to write and share what I do daily. If you read my Summer&Nature Challenge post, you may have seen The Aftermath too. 

        So now I am back home and ready to take care of all! I am going to use this chance to show you my weekly routine. 

        Here, all of my  products I currently use for my weekly, intense nail/hand care routine;

        I usually do my nail care on Mondays because thats when the house is getting cleaned and we give a bath to our dog Toby. When its all done its my turn to do some magic !

        Cuticule Products I Use Currently
        I usually start with Burt’s Bees / Lemon Butter Cuticule Cream.  As you can see it looks like a soft wax, and it smells like sweet lemons. Awesome! I usually rub it and use a silicone cuticule pusher or a wood orange stick to push my cuticules gently. I dont use metal tools because they may leave marks on the nail if I use too much force with them.

        I am sure you are curious about why I didnt start with Sally Hansen / Instant Cuticule Remover. Because its basically damaging the fibers of nail while dissolving your cuticules! You should use it only for your stubborn cuticules. If my hand had a rough week such as too much water soaking or not using enough oil, I apply the Cuticule Remover. It is important you dont let it stay on your nails more than 2 minutes. You should wash it immediately.

        The Tools I Use For Manicure
        After my nails soak the Cuticule Cream. I file down but I never cut them ! Cutting your nails may cause sudden cracks! Really bad cracks. 

        Some people sacrifice all of their fingers when one of them is barely damaged. Not in my blog. We dont give up on our nails till its too late or almost impossible to rescue ! So I use the Cuticule Cream Before I file them. It reduces the damage on nail fibers  caused by the nail files. I filed some of the corners and little cracks I  told you about Here with Heartbrokin Photos before. Thank god they were not beyond repair. 

        That blue brush is mostly unnecessary. I use it when I have to file my nails too much. The nail dust piles up a lot like snow with a weird smell.

        Than I wash my hands and I apply A lot of Sally Hansen Nail & Cuticule Oil. I apply it especially under my nails. My C curves are very strong and oil really helps a lot. I have been using this brands oil since 2 years. Not because its better than others. Simply because its easy to access in every pharmacie and make up store. 

        Some of you may remember my Long Search & Lost Hope Bliss Kiss Simply Pure Nail Oil  adventure. 

        Now I decided to make my own nail oil . I will write about it in the next weeks.

        I let my nails and cuticules to absorbe the oil. Than I use this Mineral Salty Mani & Pedi Scrub. It is lemon based too. But it is a local product, so local even I am not able find it again yet. I scrub my nails, cuticules and my hands too. Rinse it with warm water beacuse its oily and your hand hands will remain oily if you use cold water.

        After all my nails become soooo smooth! I use my Missha The Style Nail Primer currently. Before that I was using Sally Hansen‘s clear Miracle Grow product. I love it ! So shiny and it really works ! It doesnt make the nails hard and make them breakable. It lets them to bend instead of cracking ! But it peels of in a couple hours especially if your C curves are strong. Multiple layers applied on it makes it easier to peel with a small scratch. 

        Ps: I dont use acetone based polish removers because it makes my nails dry. This is one of Missha‘s nail polish removers without acetone. It works and smells good. But I buy my remover from almost any brand.


        Except this Once a Week Treatement ; Once in a week I apply hand cream and put cotton gloves on my hands I sleep with them. It really helps the hands and cuticules.


        I always use hand cream a couple times in a day. I use oil as much as I can too. Burt’s Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream and Hand Salve are my purse products for everyday. Warning; Hand Salve includes menthole. The smell is very strong.


        I apply the adorable one with the cow / Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream during my cotton gloves routine. It is heavy and almost heavy like frozen creamy milk and wax ! Like its promised ! I love Burt’s and Bees products !

        What do you think about these products I use ? Do you have any recommendations for Nail Oil? 

        Thanks for stopping by !
