Silver illusion

 Hy dear readers!
The today's nail art is very simple, some glitter placement and stamping. As the base color I used the Essence XXL shine Must have. I decided to do a stamping on three nail and on the other two to use some glitters that I received from Lady Queen. There era a lot of color to choose, I was thinking to do some mermaid inspired nail but in the end I chose something different.

Essence 115 Redvolution swatch + nail art

Hi everyone! I think it's an appropriate time to show some red nail polish. :D
This one is from Essence and it's not really like I expected... it's too sheer for my tastes. I have applied three coats and the nail line was still visible. I don't know if you will see it on the picture. Well I guess I needed one more coat but I didn't have any more patience for that. The brush was good but the formula was a little bit too liquid so you have to be very careful to not color the cuticles too. It lasted slightly less than my usual manicures.

Overall: 3.5/5

China glaze This is tree-mendous

Hi!! This Sunday I went on a mountain walk so I haven't much time to do a nail art. I decided to only apply a nail polish and I chose this green from China Glaze. At the beginning I wasn't very enthusiast about it but when I tried it I was amazed! The color is very beautiful, it's full of glitters green and gold and it so sparkly!! I love it. On the picture you cannot appreciate the real beauty of this nail polish. Maybe on the last photo with the sunlight... but in reality it's definitely better.
On the pictures you will see two layers of nail polish and 1 layer of top coat. The brush was good and the application was easy. The drying time was very very fast!

Well it seem that this nail polish is perfect, beautiful color, fast drying, glitters.... but there is something thy disappointed me, and it's the lasting. I wore it for a day and one nail was already chipped! The I decided to put another layer of top coat on the other nails but even with that it didn't last long.

Across the gray sky

Hello everyone!! How are you? How have you passed Halloween? I was planning to do a nail art for this occasion on Thursday/Friday but I came home late after work so I couldn't do anything. :(
There were  lot of cute Halloween nails on other blogs. I wanted to use an orange glowing nail polish... well I think I will keep it for the next year.

Kiko 331 Violet and BPS peel off nail polish

I have never try any other peel off base before so this is my first. I was very curious to see how it work.
I have applied one coat of this transparent nail polish over my nails and let it dry. Over it I applied a regular nail polish, the Kiko 331. I decided to remove it after a few hours just to see how it works and I have made some pictures. On some nails it went off more easily then others, don't know why...
The second time I used it I left it one my nails for about 2 day and it lasted well, maybe it could last even longer but I wanted to change the color so I removed it.
I am not a really big fan of peel off bases because I like my nail art to last as long as possible so I think I will mostly used it on my cuticles to protect them when I do gradients or water marble... It can be used this way too.

Essenca latex matt

 Essence Latex matt: swatch and review

Halloween is coming so it's time for something dark. XD
So the today's swatch is the black Essene Latex matt. I was very curious to try it. I think that now there are also red and withe latex nail polishes.
The first coat was not so homogeneous, so you will need a second one. The drying time was good and the application wasn't difficult. I also like the brush, flat and rectangular.

Overall: 4.5/5

Square pattern

Helloo!! :D
I was in the mood to do something easy so I chose this kind of pattern. It's very quick and easy to do. First off all I applied the Kiko milk mint on all my nails and then I painted some stripes with acrylic paint. I started with the white ones and made a square pattern. Over that I painted black stripes too.

Crafty fingers

Hello!! For this nail art I used some unusual tools for the decoration. I am talking about punches (tools used in scrapbooking to decorate paper)! Since I had some I decided to use one of them for this manicure. But let's start from the beginning. As the base colors I chose the Catrice Luxury Million Brilliance 05 Plum fiction and Essence 33 wild white ways. To add more glitter I also applied the Essence Effect Glitter Jewels 03 glitz & glam over the white.

Golden Rose Rich color 03

Hi dear readers!
I decided to swatch this nail polish that I bought some times ago and didn't try till now. The color is not one of my favorite but is still cute. It's not a color that I would wear alone, so I added a stamping over it.
The brush is good and also the drying time is also ok. I have applied three coats but two are enough to obtain a nice coverage.

Overall: 4.5/5

Crushed glass

Hello everyone! In this post I will show you a nail art made with the holo foil from Lady queen's website.
As the base color I chose the Kiko 266 and I applied the foil over it. On the middle and ring finger I made a different design with silver nail polish.
This kind of foil is a little bit different from the regular ones and when you apply it, it doesn't stick evenly on the nail. But this is not a big problem with this sort of design because it's almost transparent and only gives some reflections.
I wasn't really sure if I like the effect, when I was in the house I didn't like very much how it looked but on the direct sun light it's actually pretty cute.
This manicure lasted a little bit less than my usual. After 2-3 days the foil started to lift at the tip of the nail so I have to remove it at the 4th day. I don't know why this happened because I have applied 2 layers of top coat, as usual and of course I secured the tip of the nails too.

Item: foil glitter transfer sticker
Description: 1 sheet of foil. The size is 40x120 mm. There are 44 different patterns

Price: 1.80  $

Essie 21 flawless

Hi everyone!

Today I will write about Essie nail polish. I bought it some time ago in Italy and it was on 50% discount! And how could I miss that lucky chance? :P
It's a muted pink and I think it's perfect for this season.
The consistency is ok and so i the drying time. The brush it nice flat and rounded, and I really liked it. The application was easy. I have applied two coats.

Overall: 5/5
