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!

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.

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!

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 !

      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!
