Vanilla nails

April 18th, 2014 | Posted by Mari in Flowers & leaves - (4 Comments)

I got the idea of the vanilla nails design while making cheese cake the other day. You see, I’m not a big fan of cooking and baking, but there are a few things I love to cook and eat, and a homemade vanilla cheese cake is one of them.

It’s a design I did last week, but due to a huge amount of work I’m posting it only now. The idea is pretty simple – half moons decorated with dark metal studs:

In my March round up post I promised to show you I Just Can’t Cope-Acabana by OPI from their Brazilian collection for Spring 2014. I already wore the polish on its own once, and since there are many swatches of the color on other beauty blogs, I thought I’ll do a design instead, using this yellow OPI :)

A purple holo beauty that I got from Dance Legend to review. The polish comes from DL WOW Prism collection of 18 holographic nail polishes.

Now when I still have time I’d love to show you a round up of manicures that I wore this March.

Dance Legend Bite Tonight is one of those burgundy vamp nail polishes that would be perfect for a sleeping Transylvanian beauty, and I mean it in a good sense :)

JuYou Christmas nail wraps

March 28th, 2014 | Posted by Mari in Fantasy - (10 Comments)

When I ordered these nail wraps last year in November, I was planning to use them for a festive Christmas manicure. Unfortunately post office ruined my plans and I got the wraps only after Christmas. That’s why I postponed writing the review “until better times”. Yesterday however I gave a closer look at the wraps’ design and I got an idea of how to use them in an everyday manicure, paired with Dance Legend #22 Party Time :)

I know it’s time for a nail art post, but I’d love to show you some swatches first. Yesterday I bought a cute tiny bottle of polish that I immediately fell in love with! The beauty is called Blue Galaxy and it’s from Lumene Natural Code 3D Glitter line.

It’s a polish I wore twice this March in snowy days. This OPI comes from Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 collection, and it’s a sheer champagne white with a healthy dose of golden shimmer.

The sun is shining and the spring is finally here. To celebrate the warm weather I did a simple and effortless manicure that has everything Spring:
