Sexy male torso nail art


Ahhh... somebody hand me a bucket to drool in!

The green base is Colors by Llarowe The New Nude, which is a Nailland Hungary exclusive and also the inspiration for the nail art!

I painted the sexy dude with acrylic paint and my Fine Lines brush set from Winstonia.

But wow... from up close, it kind of looks like a hack job. Like somebody let their chisel slip :-p

Undercover snowman nail art


Nothing to see here. Move it along. Just an undercover snowman trying to not to stick out like a sore thumb!

I used Serum No. 5 Guiding Light as the base for all 4 nails, so yes, it glows in the dark!

I added a thin coat of Picture Polish Ocean to three of them (which makes Ocean look lighter than it is in the bottle), plus a matte top coat. And on those nails, I painted some stripes using SuperChic Lacquer On Point.  They kind of look like messy shoe laces to me!

Yaaasssss it glows! And you can see where I didn't paint very well XD I LOVE the glow polishes from Serum No. 5, love love love! There's just something about seeing your nails after lights out that hits a girl right in the feels!

The Stargazer nail art inspired by @lespoulesaussisontvernies


I LOVE this contrast between the bright yellows & oranges of the planet, and the deep blue sparkles of the base polish! It's entirely inspired by @lespoulesaussisontvernies and it's well worth taking a look at her Instagram page for some gorgeous nail pics!

The base polish is Cupcake Polish Let Your Gourd Down, that I got from Nailland Hungary. I posted my swatches and review of this polish just 10 days ago and it's soooo delicious!

I painted the design with acrylic paint and my Winstonia Fine Lines brush set, they are quickly becoming my favorite brushes for being so versatile!

Air dragon nail art


Woosh! Air dragon flying over your head! I hadn't done a dragon in sooooo long, but there's something between me and these magnificent creatures. No matter how fierce, or friendly, or evil they are, I feel compelled to paint them. So here's another one in my series of dragons!

The base for this design is Artistic Nail Design Denimist, a light blue pastel-ish polish with a slightly periwinkle hue to it.

I painted the whole design using acrylic paint the Fine Lines brush set from Winstonia. It 'only' took me 2,5 hours, and I would bet that this design just a year, two years ago, would have cost me 6  - 8 hours to paint. I loved painting her and I really want to do work like this more often!

Serum No. 5 glow in the dark pastels swatches & review


When it comes to glow in the dark nail polish, I've never come across a better brand than Serum No. 5. I had been ogling these for quite a while and finally bit the bullet 2,5 years ago when I bought two whole collections for myself! Among them were Awesome Blossom, Laven-daringly Bright, Blue Blazes and Glowin' of Eden, and a while later I received Day Glow and Atomic Peach for review.

Not all 6 of these are part of the same collection, the conception of Day Glow predates the rest of them, but in my mind they are all part of the same line. They just fit so well together! You'll agree when you see the swatches ;-)

Road to sunset nail art


Road triiiiiip!!!!! Who's coming with me?

I got ILNP Copper Top from Nailland Hungary and it's so shimmery and festive! I had a hard time finding what to paint with it but I'm very happy with the end result.

I painted it with acrylic paint (ofcourse, what else) and my Fine Lines brush set from Winstonia.

Don't forget to follow my Instagram account and tune in this weekend! Saturday at 19:00 CET I'll be answering any and all questions you may have about me, nail art, and life in general!

Writing in the snow nail art


We had our first actual snowfall this weekend! Real snow you guys! It deserves a tribute mani so here we go!

You might be wondering why there's only the sno- visible and what appears to be a v. So snov. That's just because I ran out of room on the nail and didn't have the luxury of, you know, wiping it off and starting over :-p
Surprise! I used Picture Polish Instinct as a base and it lights up under a black light!

A tutorial will be up tomorrow on my Instagram. Be sure to follow me there because I will be doing an Ask Me Anything this time (19:00CET) next saturday! And I swear you can ask me ANYTHING!
