Gold Out Forever! (dollar nail art review)

Yesterday my Dollar Nail Art order arrived and I finally got to work with some of the great stuff they sell there. I’m aiming at the Laser Lace. Laser Lace is a luminous weave of delicate fibers woven so closely together it can could be defined as lace. It’s available in 10 vibrant colors and I chose to buy the Sky Blue, Silver and Gold. I also got some green and pearl holographic glitter (the green I used on this mani) and loads of dots, hex and studs. Prepare to see more of this order soon :)

The Laser Lace wasn’t as easy to work with as it looked beforehand. The lace is very fragile and needs to be handled very very careful or you will make it fall apart. The glitter was just aweful. It has gotten everywhere where it wasn’t supposed to be. It gets delivered in a very small and tightly screwed jar which made me lose a quarter of glitter to just trying to open it. A little note: open the jars etc before you polish your nails. The striping tape is amazing and I can’t wait to use more of this, I got them in silver, gold and black and all in 2 different sizes. The one I used here is the biggest size.

Dollar Nail Art (.com) is a nice and trustworthy webshop with a lot of different nailart supplies. The items you see are $1 each but they also sell some fixed sets of products which differ in price. The shipping costs are rather high in my opinion, the supplies hardly weight anything and still I had to pay $10 to The Netherlands. Please beware that it’s a *requirement* to order for the minimum amount of $25 (shipping does not count) and you can only pay by credit card or paypal. Best thing would be to combine an order with a friend! They ship worldwide.

I’m off to do some work for school now, take care and thnx for looking!

Shooting stars

Helleeeuuuu!

I was sooooo not in the mood to do something extraordinary with my nails but hey, I’m not going out the door without SOMETHING on my nails  :-) I decided to use my Essence Silver Surfer striper which I had never used before. Being in an Essence mood I used little stars from the nailart jars they sell. They are small (sharp! ouch) and reflective and I figured they could be great shooting stars. I added some glittertopcoat to ‘seal the deal’ and we were off to work!


This was pretty easy to do. Ofcourse a littttttle hard to make perfect stripes on the right hand but hey, same shit different story ;-)

Now you may make a wish ;-)   Goodnight!

Purple Gradient

You know how it goes… You have this manicure.. you have been wearing it all day.. but it’s a bit boring. You can’t be bothered to put a new one up but want to change it a bit. Solution: layering!

I’ve been seeing these beautiful gradients around the interwebs and thought it was time for my very first gradient manicure! Look at this boring mani:

I used a lot of products. I started with a polish from a local drug store (for the dutchies: Etos) and its called Etos Effect Nails with number 22. On top I put a glitter topcoat from a (to me) unknown brand from the local market; Paris Memories. When layering I used Gosh Wild Lilac from the tip to halfway my nail. Without even letting it dry I then put a darker polish from a brand named Joe (thnx Skulda!) on the upper half of the Wild Lilac. Finish it all with some glitter from Etos Effect Nails 05-06 and voila……. Gradient nails!

Ps: a normal kitchen sponge is more than enough to make a gradient!
