Hi!
Here's the manicure I'm going to wear this New Year's Eve:

How I did this?
Firstly, I applied some Incoco nail warps. This color is called Copper Rouge.
In a pack like this you will find 14 warps, a nail file, nail polish removal
and of course, instructions.

This is how they look like on nails:
This color is so sparkly, i just love it!

After applying them, I stamped a design from m45 image plate.
Between the 2 lines, I put some silver steel balls.
I top coated with Zoya top coat.

What do you think?

Cuticle oil

Hi
Today I'll tell you about an OPI cuticle oil stick.
I was very impressed about the results. It really hydratated my cuticles
and they became soft.
It is really easy to apply it, as it has a very nice brush.
The smell also is very fine.

Sparkling Red ?!

Hi,
Today I'll show you another nail polish from BB Cream Boutique, called 02 Sparkling Red. It's from LUCIDaring collection and it's actually a gold color. When the person from Etude House told me the name of the nail polish is Sparkling Red, I thought it was a confusion because it's gold, not red. It seems they sell this polish under this name, and even if it's gold, they can't change the name. This is 2 coats and it's very sparkly and opaque. I like the texture very much and it's very easy to apply it. What do you think?
