Orange Glitter Nails, Just Because I Want To / Two Different Base Toned

Hello everyone !

I am not an exceptionally talented nail artist and apparently I have a limited imagination. I came to this conclusion because ı just wasted a perfectly fabulous Orange Glitter Nail Polish of Missha with just a simple design. I definitely love simple but elegant designs on nails but this is a nail blog I should have create something different and maybe revolutionary ?

Anyway  I did this manicure just because I like these colors so much. They suit well together. And I always wear nail polishes just to be safe. They keep my nails stronger but I also apply lots of nail oil even when I got nail polishes. Otherwise they just bend and break BECAUSE of the nail polish dehydrating with the time.

I sponge dabbed the shimmery nail polish and applied it as a top coat itself. Then, I applied my final gel top coat from MISSHA. The orange glitter is from MISSHA and of course this beautiful green polish is from  Flormar.

According to me black is almost always better and its usually the most elegant choice to apply. There is approximately zero risk to fail with black !

Thanks for stopping by this basic nail art. Tell me which one do you prefer !

Do Almost Nothing / Great Illusions of Nail Painting

Today I broke my index finger nail. Thats why I decided to keep my nails polished all the time from now on.

So here is my “simplest” design. Actually Its not even a design. I just applied red polish and some shimmery gold glitter top coat ! And it looks fabulous !

The gold top coat hides the mistakes of the red polish. I was in a hurry when I was applying these polishes so I needed some sort of illusion .

My husband was around so I got his help to take some pictures of my both hands because as I said I lost a nail of my nail art hand ! So I wanted to show you my other secret hard working hand.

Ta Daaaaa!

I know my nails look like aliens side by side but hey ! this is my husbands first time taking his wife silly nail pictures ! Don’t discourage him !

I used “Flormar” s red and gold polishes. Its a world wide shipping Turkish brand ( found by Germany, bought by Turkey in the 80’s ) which is very low priced comparing to the quality of the products ! It is also paraben-free and formaldehyde-free.

redgold2

Here is a closer look. I am still having troubles with my nails. Because recently I got diagnosed with gluten intolerance. I am trying a complete new life style and constantly cooking and cleaning made my nails a little bit unhealthy, but I got hopes! They are growing very very fast but some of them keeps breaking .

But I am gonna keep posting with my other health nails !

Hope you like my “quick savior” of manicure solution!

Pink Nails with Missha Nail Crystals & Review with my own money

Hello people ! I hope you all had a good holiday and I wish you all a happy new year.

I don’t have a theme because Christmas and New Year Themes are gone for a year. And I don’t have any more of them untill Valentines Day.

But I can always use pink ! Ohhhh and I already got those crystals of MISSHA I am willing to try . This is gonna be awesome !

crystalmissha

The Crystals are very light so I picked them up with the pointy side of an orange stick. You can use a toothpick as well. They are so small but it is convenient because my nails are not a canvas as much as I wish.

crystalmissha2

I used BARIELLE’ s one of nails polishes as a top coat with shimmer. I used Flormar’s ROOFTOP polish as base. And of course Missha’s Gel Top Coat as a final touch and a perfect shine.

crystalmissha3

It was very easy to work with. I loved these crystals. I got another set of them in color blue. Maybe I will make another version of it.

Here it is under two different light. But I can say it looks more likely on the right .

Thank you for stopping by my blog !

Silver Black / Easy New Year & Christmas Nails V.4

Hello friends,

Yes its not over yet! I am afraid I am gonna keep posting festive nails till someone sends me a horses head as a threat in order to stop me.

But when its so easy to shine on a holiday , its hard to post  anything without glitter and shine.

So here is my easy nail design for holiday !

newyear

I applied one coat of regular black nail polish. And I used a matte top coat of MISSHA. Than, I made the dots with a gel top coat. Thats how I got this raindrop look. For the glitters I used a sponge to apply a regular glittery nail polish  (STARRY SKY)  of BARIELLE.

newyear2

Don’t apply any top coat or you will lose the appearance of raindrops . I used the same gel top coat to my ring finger which is completely glitter. I made the glittery look with sponge dabbing.

newyear3

I loved this simple but elegant look so much I posted every detail of it. I hope you like the hundred picture I show you.

Please don’t quit reading my blog just because this one “unnecessary amount of the same nails” situation .

Thanks for stopping by ! I hope you will come back !

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.

rudolp

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 !

Bisoux,

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=)

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, 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,

Bisoux
