    The fall edit TAG: ep.7 "Glitter nails"

    [ENG] Second to last entry for The Fall Edit tag :) I’m enjoying posting these entries so much that I’ll be quite sad when this challenge ends!Today’s theme is ‘glitter nails’, and just recently I have received THE perfect fall-glitter nail polish from the amazing Linda of Shimmer Polish. It’s called ‘Valerie‘*, and it’s a party of holographic/coppery different sized glitters suspended in a brownish base. As soon as I saw this bottle peeking through the package, I knew that it was going to be the one

    Classy nails on a lazy sunday

    [ENG] The weather is horrible: it’s raining, it’s cold and on top of that, it’s Sunday. I don’t like Sundays, there’s nothing to do, I get bored ten minutes after getting up in the morning, and a weather like this is definitely not helping my mood.  Well, the only good thing is that I’m quite loving my nails (I can’t believe how shallow I sound right now =.=): I finally filed them in a different shape, and I’m trying out all of my more elegant nail polishes, like this one by itstyle, a deep and vampy red-burgundy shade. I lo-lo-love how it looks on longer and oval nails, it makes…

    Orly "Rockets red glare" over itstyle n.19

    I’m soooo tired right now, but I refuse going to sleep at 9 P.M., so I’m trying to keep myself awake by writing this new post :P Anyway, here I am with the second glitter nail polish from the Flash Glam collection by Orly. You already saw the first two nail polishes I received swatched here, but for today I wanted something more colourful and Christmas-themed. So, the colour I used as a base is itsyle’s n.19, while on top I layered this pretty glittery red called “Rockets red glare”. You see, this glitter nail polish is definetly not the most unique out there, but it’s still pretty, and the…

    Pupa 619 "Deep ruby" and kkcenterhk striping tape

    You all probably know that I’m not that good at nail art, but I’m a big fan of easy ways of doing pretty things.  So, when kkcenterhk asked me if I wanted to try some other of their stuff, I thought that this striping tape was exactly what I was looking for (you can find it here).  You can probably use it as nail decoration as well, but I decided to try it for a kind of laser nail art (I don’t know if it’s called like that, but you know what I mean). The easiest thing in the world, believe me! So, for this mani I chose one of my latest…

    NYC "Big city dazzle"

     Hello there! I absolutely wanted to show you this beauty I bought during the week-end: NYC “Big city dazzle“, a marvellous multi-coloured glitter polish.When I bought it, I wasn’t really sure I would like it, but the more I was staring at it the more I was mesmerized by it. I think the best way to make this polish pop would be by layering it over a black polish, but I wasn’t in the mood for black yesterday, so I used a purple polish underneath (itstyle n.41).Sadly these pictures don’t do this combo justice, but if you have the chance to find a NYC counter please go and give it…

    Monday’s wishes

    When I saw “Knackered” for the first time my reaction was not that enthousiastic. Okay, it’s a duochrome AND a holo polish, but it’s sheer, and sheer polishes are not my cup of tea. But then I saw different swatches of it, and especially when I run into Amy‘s blog post about it (this one) I completely changed my mind. I started to love it. And now I really want it so bad!  But before I’ll be able to get “Knackered”, I’m constantly looking for something similar. No, I still haven’t found anything like it, but I got a polish that is equally sheer and has tiny glitters (sadly not holographic)…

    Pretty polish and…

    When I woke up this morning it was snowing again, what an amazing sight :) Sadly, it doesn’t snow so much anymore, but the roofs and the streets are all white. Anyway, for today I prepared a pretty layering for you guys :) I got some new polishes from this italian brand called itstyle, who’s a sort of Kiko, just smaller, but I really like their products.  And, guess what? I got some stuff for you too, so expect a little giveaway soon (it’s almost the first anniversary of Like a candy shop!!) :D Well, the mani I’m showing you has Kiko‘s n.338 as base colour and n.14 from itstyle…

    New Year’s Eve mani

    Good morning and Happy 2012! I’m so happy that this new year has finally begun, and I’m full with good vibes and expectations :) I had a marvellous night and I’m ready to start this year with my closest friends, my family and my boyfriend. I hope you had a good time too :) So now let me introduce you to my New Year’s Eve manicure, of which you already had a little preview in yesterdays post. I decided to wear a silver polish, and it’s nr.16 from itstyle (an italian brand). I wanted this polish to look like a chrome one, so I used 4 coats to make it…
