Incoco Kiss&Tell

Today I'll show you another manicure using Incoco nail warps.
They come in a package like this. Each pack contains 16 warps, so if you go wrong
with one of them, you can replace it. They are different sizes, so you can choose the
one that fits the best for each nail.

It's also very easy to apply them. After you stick the warp on the nail, the part that
is longer than the nail can be easily removed with a nail file.
This is how they look like on the nails:

You can buy it from their Incoco online store, for $7.99

Liquid Palisade review

Today I'll show you the Liquid Palisade I recived a few days ago. I couldn't wait to try it!
It comes in a pretty bottle like this and it has a thin brush for applying the product.

Actually it is very easy to use.
Firstly, apply Liquid Palisade on the nail where you don't want nail polish.
You can make many nail designs using it: french manicure, half moon manicure, stripes
and many others, or simply apply it on the cuticles for getting a perfect finish
after you apply nail polish.
It will dry like this, in a very very short time:

When it is dry, apply nail polish normally.

Finally, peel it off.

You will get a very nice manicure.

Find more details about this product here.
You can buy it online on their website for $22.

Valentine's day Konadicures

Here I'll show you some ideas for the Valentine's day manicure:

The first one is a french with some images. You can never go wrong with it. Even a simple french manicure it's all right. What I did is put some pink glitter top coat on the tip and stamped the cupid from m34 image plate. I also stamped a small pink heart image from plate m59 and put a little white pearl.

The second manicure is very easy to do. I stamped the bow from image m56 over a pink base and then applied some black rhinestones.

I used image plate m35 for the third manicure. Over a mauve base color I stamped the little fairy and the heart. Finally, I applied some red rhinestones.

For the last one I used a pink holographic nail polish as base color. I used image plate m59 for doing the bows and the hearts. In the middle of the bow I applied a pink rhinestones. On the rest of the nail I put some small silvery steel balls.

So, what do you think?
What manicure are you going to wear for Valentine's?

Holographic fuchsia

Today I'll show you a nail polish from the new Glitter Gal Bling collection
called 3d/holographic Fuchsia.
I applied two thin coats without top coat and this is how it looks like:
It dries really fast and the coverage is perfect.
And the little nail polish bottle has a gorgeous design!

After I stamped an image from m78 Konad plate with special black.
This could be a nice manicure Valentine's day.

Valentine's day manicure

I used a franken I made as base color.
I stamped the bow from image plate m71 on the ring finger and
the virgo from image plate m34 on the other nails.
Finally I applied some rhinestones and put on the Konad special top coat.
