Music to my ears KOTD m73 + matte holo

Hello, dear readers and followers:)

A new week ahead and a new updated manicure, too. Over Glitter Gal Fuchsia I used China glaze Harmony and Konad image plate m73. In the end I mattified the whole manicure with China glaze Matte magic (last pic). However, I think I like the glossy one better.

How about you? Which mani do you prefer?

Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a nice and polished start of the week:*

Never enough HOLO, how about a pink Glitter gal

Hello, dear readers and followers:)

The sun is shining and it's a beautiful day, so let's see some nail polish goodness in the sun right? I received this polish in my swap with Michelle from Cosmetic Cupcakes. The brand is Glitter gal, the shade Fuchsia (gorgeous pinkish holographic polish with a hint of red in it), great coverage, two coats needed, and drying time was splendid, too. There's 1 coat of top coat in the pics.

How do you like this polish? Do you know the brand? Have you got any other holo polishes from it?

Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a great and polished day:*

Hello, dear readers and followers!

How are you doing on this lovely day?? Haven't heard from me for a while, right? I just wasn't able to post as often as I would like due to my work at school. But I have made some manicures in the meantime and taken pictures of them, of course, so I'll post these ASAP. Thank you who participated in the giveaway! There are so many entries, it might take some time to sort them out, but I'll do my best:)

I was also contacted and asked to help by spreading the word for Fresh Air foundation which enables children to spend quality time in the country and subburbs. They are in need of host families, and you my lovely readers from USA and Canada are requested to give a helping hand. For more information please visit their SITE.

Matching nails with my outfit: holographic m64

 Hello, dear readers and followers, hope you're having a great week:)

Today's manicure I did a while ago, when we had a party at work. I chose to wear a beige sleiveless t-shirt with a brown lace top over it. The motiv on the top kind of a matches my nails:) For the base coat I used 2 coats of Gosh Ginger, love the coverage and the drying time is great too. I have already swatched the polish in one of my previous posts.
Then I used Color club Revvvolution and Konad image plate m65.

How do you like the combination? Do you often match your clothes and nail designs/stamping?

Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a nice and polished day:*

Mardi Gras carnival look and matching nails: Wild thing:P

Hello, dear readers and followers,

as promised I am posting this look I did for Mardi Gras  yesterday. We had a lot of fun at work!:)
I was a mixture of cheetah and leopard, and again the painting was my work, though the pictures aren't quite the best but still, I did my best;)

What was your costume for this festival?

How do you like the face painting? I have to say that this year I've tried it for the first time, up till now I always wore masks instead of painting my face. What do you prefer?

I also did a matching manicure, with Color club Love 'em or leave 'em, then stamped it with leopard and cheetah design from Konad image plate m57 and Konad black, then I filled some spots with China glaze Passion.

Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a nice and polished day:*

after 9 hours of wearing these colours:) check the nails;)

Carnival look: Wanna be a froggy:) and a BIG thanks!

Hello, dear readers,

it's time for carnival!:) Do you celebrate it in your country? We do:)

This was my look for the procession which was on Saturday, today I've created another one which I'll show you on another day. The costume and everything else was done at home, and I painted my face, too.

What is your favourite carneval look? Do you like to dress up?

The colours I used are really great, pigmentation is superb as well as the staying power. The last 2 pics were taken after 5-6 hourse and they colours still look pretty untact, though the area around the mounth doesn't look that good as at the beginning.

I would like to thank you, my lovely followers for sticking with me all this time, the number of you is growing by each day, and this makes me really happy and proud, of you and me! THANK YOU:* ps.I'm preparing a giveaway really soon;)

How do you like my look?Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a great and polished  time:*

Matching mani&pedi #3 + an upgrade - which one do you prefer?

Hello, dear readers and followers,

it's been a while since my last post. My BF and I did a short skiing vacation in Austria, Bad Kleinkircheim. It was GREAT:)

Here's another matching pedicure which I did for the OC NAIL ART Facebook contest. If you like the combination please visit it's page and like it, thank you:*

I used China glaze Nasty, Konad special nail polish in Pastel pink and image plates m57 and m80. Then I sealed everything with Konad top coat.

As I couldn't decide I stamped my nails with some flowers too and Konad special white.

What do you think? Which one do you prefer?

Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a nice and polished day:*

Valentine's mani#3 KOTD with m57&m80

 Hello, dear readers and followers,
a quick post for the Valentine's day, and of course a matching manicure for it.

I decided to go with a french but with a twist. First, I stamped the fish net design from Konad image plate m57 and Konad special nail polish in Pastel pink, then  I painted the tips with China glaze Nasty and again stamped the french design with hearts from m80 and Konad special nail polish in Pastel pink. At the end I sealed it all with 1 coat of Konad special top coat.

What do you think of the combination? Would you wear it for Valentine's day?

Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a great and polished day:*
