Rising hearts (again)

Yeah, you've seen this before. Different colors, though.
The first version of this manicure was this one
I started this with two coats of Matt Dull white polish from Born Pretty and 
then I applied Sinful Colors -Nail Junkie on the tips. I stamped the design
from m83 Konad plate and finished with a clear top coat.

Merry Christmas & Holiday manicure

Hi,
Firstly, I want to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas for you and your dear ones!
I want to show you the Christmas nail art I'm going to wear this holiday.
I started with two coats of Matt Dull White from Born Pretty and then I stamped
the stripes from an essence plate with a red nail polish. On my ring finger, I 
stamped the flower from the Hello Kitty image plate from Born Pretty and I applied 
a green rhinestone in its center. Finally, I put on a clear top coat.

Snowman manicure

Hi,
Today I'll show you a new wintery manicure done with both Konad and
brushes. I started with two coats of Catrice -It Blue My Mind and then I stamped the
snowflakes from m59 image plate on 3 of my nails and made a snowman on my thumb
and ring finger. It's very easy to do - I think each of you are capable of doing it.
Use a bigger dotting pen for the snowballs and a smaller one for the eyes, nose
and buttons. Use a thin brush for the rest of the details. At the end, I topcoated
all nails and applied a silver rhinestone in the middle of the snowflakes.
I  got inspired from The Naisaurus' manicure, but her was obviously much prettier.

Winter manicure

Hi,
As the winter came and I am still waiting for the first snow to come, I decided
to create a wintery design. Unfortunately, the picture is not very clear, but it's
the best I could capture.
I started with a light blue base color and then I applied a darker blue glitter from
Sinful Colors. I stamped the snowflake fro m59 image plate on the corner of each nail
with Special White and then applied a silver rhinestone. I finished with a clear top coat.

Today I'll show you a new crackle manicure. I started with two coats of PURE ICE
-French Kiss, a dark blue. Then I applied the black crackling polish from Born Pretty.
 The dry-time of this nail polish is very short and it dries in a matte way, that's why I finished
with a clear top coat, but matte is nice too. It makes very nice crackles and it only costs $5.50 .
 What is more, they ship internationally and it is free. 
And for you - for all that are following mu blog - I have a special 10% discount code to
use on any order on their website: MKAK31 .

Crush on you

Hi,
Today I'll show you a swatch of Orly -Crush on you.
It is almost opaque after three coats. I know that there are a lot of people that don't
like orange nail polish, but I can't say this about myself. I'm totally in love with them.
And this Orly shade really had a crush on me. It's not a neon color, it's more like a pastel
one. What do you think?
