Tropical gradient

Hi hi! I can’t get my hands off the turquoise colors lately it seems. It’s just such a bright, happy and classy shade, I simply love it. So obviously I couldn’t resist doing a gradient. I used several colors..

As a base there was Etos Effect Nails nr 22 with Essence Glisten Up on top. I gave that some time to dry and then started sponging with Sephora Teeny Bikini (lol). About halfway the nail I sponged with Essie Turquoise & Caicos and the upper part of the nail was sponged with Rimmel Sky High. I finished it all with another coat of Essence Glisten Up and voila, c’est ça! Flakey goodness! Combined with clear rhinestones this tropical cocktail is ready to drink! (does it show I need a holiday to some sunny place far far away? ugh)

The ring was a cheapy from a dutch jewellery store called Six and was only 4 EUR. I bought it last week and I so love it 8-) Enjoy the weekend!

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!
Cheapass hihi <3

Colorful flowers /w decals!

Hello there!

Today I’m showing you my other *colorful* entry for the for the Betsey Johnson’s fashion
challenge of Polish Hoarder Disorder which ended yesterday. Apparently this dress was not
picked by anyone else so I thought that was kinda cool :)

I used the waterdecals that I received from Viva La Nails. It was the first time I
have ever used waterdecals but hell that works well! So easy and pretty.
(anyone know some good places to buy waterdecals by any chance? ;) )

And this was my entry:

Enjoy today!
