Wavy

Hey guys!

Today I recreated my wavy manicure yet again - this time with the beautiful Cirque Colors Smoky Quartz.

For the manicure I used a small nail art brush and Cirque Colors Smoky Quartz to create the simple negative space effect by painting the waved directly onto my naked nails.

I am going a bit crazy with negative space nail art these days, but I just love it so much.

Painting

Hey guys!

Today I have some fun nail art inspired by the amazingly talented Narmai to share with you.

For the manicure I started off with a cyan blue base of piCture pOlish Salt Water on my thumb, pointer and middle finger. Afterwards I freehanded the paint roller on my ring finger with a small nail art brush, black and white acrylic paint, the silver polish Essie No Place Like Chrome and piCture pOlish Salt Water.

And here's a picture of the paint roller without the 'paint' (lol)!


I think this nail art turned out so cute and fun!

Swirls

Hey guys!

Today I have some dry marble nail art to share with you!

For the manicure I started off by using the dry marble technique to make some swirls on my Uber nail art mat with piCture pOlish Saphira and piCture pOlish Posey. I added some quick-drying top coat on top off the swirls and transferred them onto my ring and middle finger. Lastly I painted my pinky with the pink piCture pOlish Posey and my pointer and thumb with the dark blue piCture pOlish Saphira.


Close up!


I love these two polishes together!

Essie Lapiz of Luxury vs Essie Lapiz of Luxury

Hey guys!

A while ago I fell in love with this beautiful cornflower blue polish called Lapiz of Luxury by Essie. I ordered it home from eBay (from an American seller) and it looked nothing like the swatches online - instead it was a dusty lavender polish. I then recently found the polish in Denmark with another color, but the same name? There seems to be more than one version of this polish, with different colors and formula, but the same name.


Essie Lapiz of Luxury vs Essie Lapiz of Luxury.


The two polishes look nothing alike (albeit they are both beautiful).

It has been seen before that Essie have reformulated some of their polishes or that there is a difference in the American and European polishes with the same names. In this case I think it is a reformulation, which is a shame.

Stay polished.
