Hi guys! So todays nails is a simple blue stripe mani. I wanted something simple, but fun. For some reason I’m really in to blue right now, so you will probably see a few more blue manis in the near future.To do this mani I simply used a striping brush.I’m still learning to control a striping brush, but I think I did okay on this manicure. And I totally love it in the sun! The dark blue and the silver stripes are so sparkly. The turquoise base also have a silver shimmer in it, but once it is on the nail, you can’t really tell. It’s to bad. The polishes I used are: Naughty Nautical – Essie(base color), White Out – China Glaze (white), Icicle – China Glaze (silver), Eyes Like Sapphires – China Glaze (dark blue)Lately, I’ve been wanting to try some Indie brands. However, you really can’t find indies in Sweden. So, does anyone know a good website where you can order them? Preferably a European site, so the shipping is cheaper. Do you have a favorite indie brand that I should try? Some tips would be awesome.
I’m a big fan of everything nail polish related. But I’m a even bigger fan of sports! I love the olympic games and especially the winter games. I wanted to do a olympic-themed nail. To be honest, I knew right away that a rainbow gradient was the right thing. Last summer one of Swedens athletes, Emma Green Tregaro, wore rainbow nails to the World Championship as a protest against the anti-gay laws in Russia. Every law that suppresses someones rights is wrong in my opinion. I think everyone should be equally treated, no matter how you live your life. Naturally this is not a problem in Russia alone, it’s a problem in so many countries around the world. But people should act against it if they can. So, I’m following Emmas example. My camera is not so good, so the green color between the yellow and the blue doesn’t really show. I did not put purple in there since I don’t have all of my nail polishes home right now. Apparently, I did not manage to bring a singe purple polish with me.The polishes I used for this mani was Magnifico Mexico(red) by OPI, Get Your Lem-On(yellow) , Factory Girl(blue), both from Color club and Highlight Of My Summer(green) from China Glaze.
Sorry for not posting in a while. I have had a rough month and I took some time of from blogging and nail art. I have moved and I’m starting to get back on track again. Now I feel like I’m ready to go back to the blog and doing more nail art!
This manicure is just a simple french manicure with some silver, holographic glitter. From time to time, I like to do something a bit more on the “plain” side. I do love a good french mani or a beige nail polish, but I like colors so much more. I often get tired of my nails in just a day if they are to plain. But you have to mix it up sometimes.
To do this mani I used a thin coat of Fair Dinkum Pinkum from OPI, White Out from China Glaze and Jo Is In The House from H&M.
My new manicure is a mix of turquoise stripes on a grey base. It’s painted by hand(since I need to practice). I think it turned out cool, even though I wish I had used a more neon turquoise so it would pop more.
The grey it Tinsel Town, a totally awesome grey with a tons of silver glitter. I can’t stress how awesome this polish is! The turquoise is Turned Up Turquoise, also from China Glaze. This polish dries matte, but I used top coat.
I’m not going to write more about this, since I have so munch studying to do
This is the manicure I started 2014 with(except my new years eve mani). I actually did this type of mani once this fall and I liked it so much that I decided to do another one! When I did the old manicure, I used tape to do lines. This mani is completely hand painted(as you can see, haha). I am pretty happy with it though! But I do need to practice some more.
I made it it the most simple way. I painted white on the entire nail. Then, I used a small brush to paint the other colors. I lined it with black in the end, so I didn’t need to worry about making it perfect when using the other colors.
The colors I used are White Out and Highlight of My Summer(the green) from China Glaze, Naughty Nautical(the turquoise in the picture) and Avenue Maintain(blue) from Essie. For the lines I used Liquid Leather from China Glaze.
This mani is a week old too. I bought my first Essie polishes on sale and I just had to try one out! This dark, gorgeous red polish is called Shearling Darling and it’s from their winter collection. I love it! The color is so pretty and the formula was awesome! I only had to use two thin coats and I hope all the Essie polishes has a similar formula. Unfortunately, they are super expensive in Sweden, so it might be a while before I buy more of them. But I still got two more to try out!
I used my Essie as a base and I added some dots in white and gold on top. I like it. I used White Out and Champagne Bubbles, both from China Glaze.
Hi guys! Sorry for not posting, I’ve been super busy with seeing all of my friends and my family during the holidays! However, my finals are coming up..I have to study all day, every day for the next 2 weeks. I will probably schedule some old manicures and show you the ones I have time to do. But after that, I will be better!
I hope everyone have a nice new years eve. I had a great time! But I forgot to take pictures of my mani, so I’m going to show you another. This Galaxy mani is a week old. I posted it on my instagram, but I didn’t find the time to write a post here. So if you want to keep up, follow my instagram: thepowerofpolish.
Tried to catch some sunlight in this last picture! I think I’ve seen the sun like 2 times in a month.. this winter sucks!
