Election Coming Up!

Hey guys!

Today I have some nail art that is very special to me to share with you!
I am running to be a member of the Central Denmark Regional Counsil and this manicure is inspired by the political party I represent.

For the manicure I started off with a deep blue base of Essie Style Cartel on my pointer, middle finger, and thumb. Afterwards I painted one-third of my pinky and ring finger with the white Essence Wild White Ways. Lastly I added the decal shaped as a V that I made by cutting it out of a dry piece of the orange nail polish China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy.


I will be insanely busy the next couple of weeks due to my election campaign, which is why I won't be posting as much.

Studs

Hey guys!

Today I have some simple nail art featuring lots and lots of studs to share with you!

For the manicure I started off with a base of piCture pOlish Bonkers on all my nails (the formula on this polish is perfect). On my ring finger I only painted part of the nail with piCture pOlish Bonkers. Afterwards I added studs in different colors and sizes to my ring finger.


Close up!


I love this simple nail art and how it matches with the piCture pOlish lipstick!

Negative Space

Hey guys!

Today I have some simple negative space nail art featuring two of my absolute favorite polishes!

For the manicure I started off with a red base of Essie Really Red on all my nails - on my ring finger and pinky I only painted part of the nail and cleaned up the edges of the negative space nail art with a clean-up brush dipped in acetone. Afterwards I applied Essie Shine of the Times on my pinky and ring finger.


Close up!


I am in LOVE with this nail art!

Essie As If!

Hey guys!

Today I have swatch and review of Essie As If! to share with you!
As If! is a dusty periwinkle blue with purple undertones.

The formula is amazing - it is smooth and easy to apply. It needed two thin layers to be opaque, but it is nearly a one-coater if you apply it a little thicker.


This shade is so beautiful and amazing for fall!

BOW Thermo Top Coat Black

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of BOW Thermo Top Coat Black to share with you!
Thermo Top Coat Black is a thermal polish that ranges from a sheer light grey to black with tiny holographic flakes.

The formula is good. I applied it over the nude polish Cirque Colors Dakota stamped with the black polish Essie Licorice and the MoYou London Holy Shapes 03 stamping plate on my middle and ring finger. It applied beautifully with one easy coat, but unfortunately it did make streaks in my stamping nail art.
The thermal shift is stunning and it shifts quickly in different temperatures.


Above the polish is in its hot state and below it is in its cold state.


It really is a shame that it smeared my nail art, because I think the disappearing nail art effect is awesome!

BOW Thermo Top Coat Blue

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of BOW Thermo Top Coat Blue to share with you!
Thermo Top Coat Blue is a semi-sheer thermo polish that ranges from a bright cobalt blue to a light periwinkle blue with tiny holographic flakes.

The formula is okay. I applied it over the light blue polish Deborah Lippmann Blue Orchid and it applied streaky and difficultly on the first coat. On the second (thick) coat it evened out.
The thermal shift is definitely what is amazing about this polish and it shifts beautifully!


Above is the polish in its cold state and below is the polish in its hot state.


I am so excited to wear this polish and observe how it shifts in different temperatures!

Palate Cleanser

Hey guys!

Today I have some simple nail art to share with you! I really needed something simple on my nails to act like a palate cleanser for me.

For the manicure I started off with a taupe nude base of Essie Go Go Geisha on all my nails. Afterwards I used a small nail art brush and Dance Legend Silver Leaf top coat to create the glitter gradient.


Close up!


I love a simple glitter gradient as this one!
