Happy New Year 2015!

Hi,
Today I'll show you the manicure I'm going to wear for this New Year's eve. I wanted something simple, but eye-catchy, so just went for glitter. I used Marsala as the base colour for my manicure, as it was chosen by Pantone to be the colour of the year 2015. The nail polishes used were Illamasqua - Vice and Sephora by OPI - Come to Pappa-razzi!. I applied the glitter using a sponge to maximize its effect and applied matte top coat over it. What do you think?

Happy New Year!

Santa Claus' costume nail art

Hi,
Today I'll show you the manicure I wore on Christmas Eve. I decided to create Santa Claus' costume on my nails, which was really easy and suitable for this holiday. I created Santa's cap on all nails except from my ring finger, where I created his costume. The golden stud I used for the belt is from Born Pretty store. As usual, I finished the manicure with clear top coat. What do you think?

Merry Christmas!

Winter landscape nail art

Hi,
Today I'll show you my winter landscape nails. This one was really easy and fast to do so keep reading. I started with two coats of Tip Top Nails - Astronaut and then applied a coat of Sinful Colors - Hottie. Using a sponge, I applied white nail polish on the tips of my nails to create the show effect. Finally, I applied some water decals from Born Pretty store and applied clear top coat. What do you think?

Christmas Minion Nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you my Christmas version of the minions from Despicable Me. For this manicure you need yellow, red, white, black and silver nail polish, two dotting tools (both a small and a big one), a very thin brush and a loooot of patience. 
I started by painting all my nails two coats of yellow nail polish and then, using a brush, I created the red costume. After that, I completed it using the white nail polish. I applied it with the small dotting tool on the cap and with the thin brush on the top. Then, using the bigger dotting tool dipped into white polish, I created the eye. I outlined it with silver polish and then I created the small, black dot in the middle. With black nail polish and the thin brush, I created the other details and finally, I applied a generous amount of clear top coat. 
What do you think? Would you try them?

Sweater nail art

Hi,
It seems like winter is already here and that means only one thing: themed nail art is coming. Today I'll show you my sweater manicure. This pattern is one that I really enjoy wearing.

Easy-to-do manicures

Hi,
Sorry for being MIA - busy week. Today I'll show you two of my last manicures. They're both really easy and fast to do and also eye-catchy.
For the first one, I started with two coats of  Astor - 237 Orange Cosmos on all nails except from my accent nail, where I applied ProNails - Extreme white. Then, using a dotting tool, I made some dots using the other colour. You can also use bobby pins or needles for this step. Finally, I applied a golden heart stud from Born Pretty store and sealed everything with top coat. 

For the second nail art, I used a different nail polish on each nail.
 I applied two coats of Rimmel -312 Ultra Violet and clear top coat on my pinkie. On my ring finger, I applied two coats of Layla -Metal Chrome and then applied Farmasi Shimmer Nail Enamel #201 as a glitter top coat. On my middle finger, I started with two coats of ProNails - Extreme white and then I stuck some chevron vinyls I got from Nails Redesigned. Using a sponge, I applied pink and purple polish and then unstuck the vinyls. I finished with clear top coat. Finally, I applied Farmec #364 on my index finger and then sealed it with clear top coat. 

Which of the two manis is your favourite?
