Random style design! I actually don’t know what inspired me this time, it can be a japan-ish snowy spring theme maybe ahah dunno… I was just trying some patterns, but it turned out interesting and i kept it :)
So, the lime green is from Kiko, as well as the white, instead of the purple which is a liner brush polish from flormar, which disappointingly turned in brown… :(
xoxo see ya!
More stripes! Yes i was in the candycane mood hahah just joking… I wanted to try a new Essence Liner but i already had a mani on, and i said… why not?? :)
I already had on a combination i made some time ago for xmas, but without the matte effect: blue my mind fro H&M and an old L’oreal glitter blue.. i just love how those two blue turn out together… :) So i used over them a new Essence orange with a liner brush, i found it just in white, orange and pink, so we’ll see how they turn out, but for now the orange is quite transparent, i had to go over the stripes a couple of time to avoid them looking gray… anyway it costed me like 90 cents so… whatever… :)
hope you like it! xoxo
New Deisgn! This is not the first time i try to make vertical striped nails, i actually like them a lot cause it gives a twist to normal nails but without being “heavy” and actually with some color combination it can be very classy in my opinion. :)
This is the latest one i made anyway, those are two very strange colours from kiko, the purple is not quite purple and the green is not quite green… so they’re hard to pair but together i think they make a good effect :)
MATTE/SHINY FRENCH MANICURE!!! Another design i really wanted to do! and it turned out pretty damn good although my nails weren’t in their best shape… till a bit too short for a french (in my opinion) :( But this was a couple of weeks ago and now they grew up better! mostly because i’m trying to keep the shapes more oval than squares, otherwise they keep stumbling in shoes, doors, drawers etc… and breaking!
I’m totally in love with matte polish, i can’t help it! I used only the black from Kiko this time, and the essence mattifier top coat which is amazing and it makes nail polish dry incredibly faster!
see you nex time! xoxo
Quick alternative french! This is my friend Giuliana who lended me once more her hands :) This is a very quick french manicure with a twist… I love oblique french!!!! And the blue stripe gives a lot of dimension to it, in my opinion… Anyway i need to practice more with the stripes… but i have to say… in picture they look much worse than they really are!!!
The white is from kiko, the blue is from flormar, and the transparent milky white is from rimmel. I personally don’t like the effect that gives overall to the design (it’s very greasy) but i wasn’t the client ;)
Konad Experiment!! This is one of my first attempt at using konad stamping system, and actually you can easily tell.. it’s pretty sluppy… XD but anyway the final result wasn’t so bad so i left it on :) i have to admint, i thought using the stamps was pretty easy and i had to change my mind about it, it takes a lot of practice and steady hand!
i used a new essence light blue polish, which is pretty good for the price i paid, one coat and that’s it! the i used the H&M blue my mind for the flowers and a flormar black with the striping brush :) and of course the essence mattifier!!!
hope you enjoy!
shocking pink! very very quick post about an old design i made, i just wanted to show you guys the first attempt on making “clouds” heheheh, even before the xmas one :) this is a very simple yet interesting design indeed! everyone should give it a try!!!
neon pink from flormar, light pink from american apparel and kiko’s white :)
hope you enjoy, bye bye :)
NEON NAIL ART!!! Yesss i finally got the chance to experiment with them! This is totally far from perfect, i did that quick and i had lots of problems with the tape pieces… but it totally rocked the party!!! we went to this amazing djset of Bloody Beetroots and i HAD to make a special nailart of course! hehe :)
the black is from kiko, whic is very thick and very difficult to manage i found out, and the yellow is the neon one from Flormar, and i really doubted the results but when i saw that under the blacklight i was so excited!!! hope you like it, i’m totally looking forward to make many more nailarts like this!!!
Sorry for being so late but… here it is my santa’s makeup! XD
i’ve been so busy these last weeks that i haven’t got the time yet to prepare so many old things to upload!!! but i’ll manage!!
this was supposed to be a tribute to santa claus… or something lik that… i wore it for our pre-xmast party XD i have to say that in italy it’s almost impossible to find plain red colours, someone told me because their pigments are illegal here, or something like that… and that’s a total shame!!!! This red come from my zoeva matte palette that i bought online some time ago actually, and it works very well. the white instead it’s a new entry: it’s a mineral pigment from Neve Cosmetics that is COMPLETELY white and it can be used mostly to mix with other pigments to alterate the colurs… and it works damn good!!!
this makeup is also a bit darker than the previous one, actually i wanted it even darker than this, but in the end i wanted to use the white and i overdid it… hehe that pigment is too strong!!! for the dark, of course i used my beloved kiko one :)
lots of kisses :P
Xmas nails in here too! yep this is what i was wearing for the christmas celebrations, i took inspiration once again from the beatiful blog of Nailside and i tried to replicate one of her designs. I wanted to recreate a pine stick with some snow on it and give to it a red background to remind to the christmas atmosphere but anyway keeping a very graphic and simple style…. BUT… i haven’t thought about the fact that these are the same colours of the italian flag… and all my family thought that those were for the 150th anniversary of the unification…..
my bad! :) anyway they turned pretty cool even if the green lost some of its “greeness” over the white… i used all kiko products for this and i’m loving them more and more, they’re so thick and pigmented that i need just one coat to cover everything!!
MATTIFY EVERYTING!!!!!! finally i came back posting from the holiday pause!!! i went home and i discovered a new place where they’re selling essence materials and so i lost myself into the shelves and came back home with many new funny things! yay!
i’m so in love with this matte top coat that i’m trying that with everything that passes under my nose (even in the salad ahah!!) and i think that with this l’oreal shimmering blue it makes a pretty cool effect! thanks to giuliana, my friend, for lending me her hands :)
happy new year guys and best wishes for all your new adventures!!!! =)
