Halloween nails pt 2: Dark butterflies


I couldn’t resist making the second mani in my Halloween series already. Did I mention how much I love this theme? No? I LOVE IT! AAAAAH! This design is black purple and it has butterflies It’s also very easy to create!

I used Catrice Back to Black as black base. This black is amazingly opaque but I still used two coats to be sure. On top I put some thin fimo flowers from Ebay. The white cross is from BM imageplate number 13. This plate also has bats, a spider, a witch and a spiderweb which I used in my Halloween nails pt 1. The rhinestones are from Ebay as well.

Thnx for stopping by and take care, dark ones!

Light As Air


Today I want to show you a konadicure made with one of my newer imageplates. The s6. I’m really in love with these designs. It has a celtic feel to it, don’t you think? So cool!

I was wearing my purple’ish dress and wanted a purple mani..sigh..girls uh ;-) So, I came up with this combination; CG Light as air with Konad Special Polish in Violet Pearl. I think they fit really well with eachother. I might actually use this combi more often!

Now I’m gonna think about a more creative mani 8-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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!
