Mummy nails for Halloween

Hi,
Today I'll show you the design I'll be wearing for Halloween: Mummy nails.


I started with two coats of Flormar -M01 and then I stamped the design from Cheeky Beauty's GA15 stamping plate using black nail polish. Using a nail art brush, I created a thicker black line and then made two red dots using a dotting tool and Illamasqua -Alarm. I finished with clear top coat. What do you think?

Hi,
Today I'll show you the new 2013 "Create your own" nail stamping plates and my butterfly wings manicure.

This set contains 26 different stamping plates, unlike the previous ones which only contain 25. The designs on them were created by inventive fans and I have to admit that they had brilliant ideas. I'll live you with some pictures so you can make an idea.

For the manicure below, I started with two coats of Flormar -DC06 and then stamped the design from BM-424 plate using black polish. I filled in the dots using Shimmer Polish -Lucie. I finished with clear top coat. What do you think?

Visit Bundle Monster's website and like their facebook page if you want to find out more about their products. You may also want to follow them on twitterGoogle+ and Pinterest. They also sell their image plates on Amazon and eBay at reasonable prices and ship them worldwide.

My Golden Rose nail polish arsenal

Hi,
Some of you might have already seen this picture on my facebook page. Today I'll show you the 14 polishes from Golden Rose that I own. They're from various collections, such as Impression, Holiday. Rich Color, Carnival and Jolly Jewels.

Buna,
Unele dintre voi poate ati vazut deja aceasta poza pe pagina mea de facebook. Astazi va voi arata cele 14 oje Golden Rose pe care le detin. Acestea sunt din diferite colectii, cum ar fi Impression, Holiday. Rich Color, Carnival si Jolly Jewels.

Impression is a collection which 'impresses' with the feather effect it gives to the manicure. The glitter particles are coloured, long and thin. Feather nails are lately a trend.

Impression este o colectie care reuseste sa 'impresioneze' prin efectul de pene ce il da manichiurii. Particulele de glitter sunt colorate, lungi si subtiri. In ultima vreme, unghiile cu pene sunt un adevarat trend. Le puteti gasi AICI pe site-ul Cosmania.

Holiday is a textured nail polish collection, also known as sand effect or sugar effect. It actually is a glittery polish with a matte finish. I for one fell in love with this nail polish trend. There are 31 shades available. The ones from #51 to #60 have silver particles and those from #61 to #67 are only matte. The rest of them are part of the Summer collection and there are neon shades.

Holiday este o colectie de oje texturate, cunoscute si ca oje cu efect de nisip sau cu efect de zahar. De fapt, sunt oje cu glitter si cu finish mat. Eu personal m-am indragostit de acest trend. Exista 31 de nuante disponibile in aceasta colectie. Cele de la #51 la #60 au in ele particule argintii, iar cele de la #61 la #67 sunt doar mate. Restul fac parte din colectia Summer si nuantele sunt neonice. Le puteti gasi AICI pe site-ul Cosmania.

T.P.A. Group Challenge: 6. Inspired by tattoos

Hi,
Today I'll show you my manicure for the weekly T.P.A. Group Challenge. The theme was 'Inspired by tattoos' and I chose one I really love to paint on my nails. I started with two coats of Avon -Sea Breeze. Then I stamped the birds from Bundle Monster's BM-315 plate using black polish on all nails except from those two nails on which I wrote the text with a really thin brush. I finished with clear top coat. What do you think? Stay around for next week's theme: Inspired by a celebrity.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month - week #1

Hi,
As you all might know, October is the month of Breast Cancer Awareness. Bloggers usually gather and create themed manicures and this year, Nail Glaze took the initiative. We will post pink manicures every week, so stay close if you want to see them all.

I started with two coats of Revlon -Sugar Glaze, which is a beautifully scented nail polish. Then, I stamped the design from Bundle Monster's BM-321 plate using Sinful Colors -Dream on on my accent nail. On the rest of the nails, I applied a coat of Nicole by OPI -Confetti fun. As glitter was involved in the manicure, I assume that you already got accustomed to my habit to matify it. I used Flormar -Matifying top coat on all nails for this. What do you think?
