Astor -#70

Hi,
Today I'll show you a new manicure I made using m69 Konad plate.
I started with two coats of a blue nail polish and then I stamped the flowery design
using Special White. I applied China Glaze -Lemon Fizz in the middle of each flower
and finished with a clear top coat for additional shine. What do you think?

The blue nail polished I used is Astor -no.70 . I applied two coats of it and they offered
full coverage and perfect shine. Please visit Astor's Beauty Romania facebook page for more

Striping tapes

Hi,
Today I'll show you a summer manicure I easily created.
I started with two coats of ZOYA -Jolene and then I applied Illamasqua -Gamma
on the tips, using a sponge. On my ring finger I applied some striping tapes diagonally 
and applied a coat of Illamasqua -Scorn above. I finished with a clear top coat.
What do you think?

Animal print

Hi,
Today I'll show you two coloured leopard manicures I did with a friend of mine.
Both designs were created using m57 Konad plate, stamped over a two-colours 
base. The polishes used were Illamasqua -Faux (purple), Picture Polish -Marine
(turquoise), Picture Polish -Citrus (orange) and Sinful Colors -Timbleberry (rose).
The final coat was a clear top coat. What do you think?

Rimmel Lycra Pro -Ultra violet & m36 + m73 Konad stamping

Hi,
Today I'll show you a manicure I made combining various nail polishes.I started with two coats of Rimmel Lycra Pro -312 Ultra violet. This nail polish has a wider brush than other nail polishes and it is easier to apply the product. It has a perfect coverage and an incredibly quick dry time. I sponged the tips using China Glaze -Re-fresh mint and then I stamped the flowery lace from m73 Konad plate using Special White. Then, I stamped the butterfly design from m36 Konadplate using Astor Quick'n go -no.17 . I finished with a clear top coat. What do you think?

Create stripes using dotting tools

Hi,
Today I'll show you a new technique to make an abstract, striped manicure.
All you need for it is three different-coloured nail polishes and, surprisingly,
a dotting tool. If you don't have the latter, you might as well use a toothpick,
the tip of a bobby pin or a sewing pin. 
I started with two coats of Illamasqua -Gamma and then I created thinner and
thicker stripes using Sinful Colors -Amethyst and Astor -Iconic Red.
You don't have to use this colours, any other combination will look good.
Unfortunately I don't have a tutorial for this design, but please watch this Youtube tutorial
that inspired me, too. What do you think?

Hot pink manicure

Hi,
Today I'll show you a manicure I made freehand.
I started with two coats of Picture Polish -Hot and then, using some dotting tools
I created a big, black dot on each nail, with Stripe Rite -Black. Using the same 
technique but doing smaller dots, I created white ones with Stripe Rite -White and
then pink ones, with the same color as the base coat. Then I created random smaller 
dots with black and white. I finished with a clear top coat. 
What do you think?
