Mani of The Day / Colors I can’t Really Identify

Hello blog people!

Yes I call you like that in my personal life. But  why not ? I like it.  So todays manicure is one of my usual designs. They are not actually “designs” maybe I should say “combination” instead of design.

Missha Blue Nail Crystals Review , Ribbon Blue Nails

Hello ! I warned you before ! Yes I am going to do another crystal nail review!

Mishha got 2 different versions of these crystals and I tried the pink version before. I loved them. Easy to pick up with a toothpick and light as snow. It is also low priced too.

How can I not love them ?

I apply my usual base coat from Missha Because I am intending to keep this mani for a couple days.My top coat is Missha Gel Top Coat. I like how its easy to apply and shines perfectly.

blueribbon2

It really reflects the light good. Unfortunately I am not so good with capturing the light. Still the beautiful BLUE RIBBON of the brand FLORMAR saved the day and my mani. It helps the crystals about looking smooth and sharp at the same time.These colors are easy on the eye. And I feel calmed just by looking my nails.

I tried to take pictures under multiple lightenings. I hope you will like it as much as I do. Cuz I think this color really made the crystals pop up !

I almost forgot to post this pic with the package of the crystals !

If you liked this look you may liked the pink crystals version of it too !

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 !

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.

Bisoux,
