Glow roses nail art

We haven't had a glow design in a while! There's a small hidden aspect about this one, because...

...even though it's white in the light, the stems & leaves glow green thanks to Serum No. 5 Budding Lights while the roses light up purple with Madam Glam After Dark.

I love how they almost seem like 2 different designs!

I have a couple of mystery grab bags left in my blog sale, to help me become an actual grownup with an apartment of my own :) Definitely check it out!

I received Madam Glam After Dark as a press sample. Opinions expressed are 100% my own and not influenced in any way other than the quality of the product itself.

Lanterns in the night nail art

Follow the path of lights to get to where you're going! Just... don't fall in the water :-p

The mesmerizing night sky is Tonic Polish Huckleberry Sparkle that I got from Color4Nails, look at the stars shining!!! I painted everything with acrylic paint and a tiny brush.

It's a little bit different from my usual landscapes, but I like it. It's mysterious and a little bit magical :)

There's still a few surprise packages left in my blog sale right here!

Pool table nail art

Whaddaya do when it gets darn cold? You stay indoors and play pool is what you do! Teeny tiny pool as the case may be :-p

I used some green flocking powder for the 'table', it's so fluffy! I had these small plastic beads that worked amazingly well for the pool balls, I just had to paint them here and there. Aaaaand the cue is made from a wooden cocktail pick that I painted. Seems easy enough and yet the balls kept escaping! XD

Big changes for 2018!

Big things for me in 2018: I'm moving out of my parents' house and into my first real apartment! Yes I know, it's about time at 28. It was just so comfy at home, and me and my parents get along great. I have a tiny studio apartment and it's taken me a whole lot of effort but it's starting to look great! Tiny means cozy in my book, although it also means setting priorities and trying to fit everything I own into the little storage space I have available.

So, to cut to the chase... I have SO much polish and not all of it can move with me. I'm parting with a big chunk of my collection and sharing it with you in the form of a blog sale! It's been a while since I've had one of these so let me refresh your memory:

I LOVE surprise packages and it has gone over great in the past so that's what we'll be doing! I have a couple of mystery grab bags up in my shop that contain 12 polishes, most of which are indies, and a whole bunch of extra nail art/nail care/other goodies. The items are in great condition, most have never been used while some have been used once, one 1 hand. Price already includes shipping in a sturdy box with plenty of padding inside, to anywhere in the world!

I also have smaller grab bags, and a gel polish variety, so be sure to check out the listings and I hope there's something for everyone!

Circuit board nail art

Why did the capacitor kiss the diode? He just couldn't resistor XD

The base is Masura Sky Gardens that I reviewed a while ago. I used Madam Glam Perfect Black to paint the circuit board design, all of it, and then added some Green Menace & Silver Star chrome powders from Mitty for different parts of the design.

Be careful not to touch! This design is eeeeeelectric! High voltage!

Gummibears nail art

These gummibears are such bad liars.... I can see right through them!

I had myself some fun with my clear 3D sculpting gel ;-) I mixed a couple of OPI Color Paints polishes with a blob of sculpting gel to build up the gummi bears bit by bit!

They are so SQUISHY!!!

Snowy landscape nail art

The first snow has been sighted here in the Netherlands! It's not staying on the ground yet but gosh, it's pretty to watch :D Who knows, maybe tomorrow will be white!

I love doing landscapes like this. This was an easier one in the sense that there wasn't much detail to add, besides the trees.... but also hard because even when I was done, it felt unfinished, with all the white parts.

Hand painted with acrylic paint as always. I always use a polish base to paint on, and a polish top coat, so I kind of 'sandwich' the paint in between the layers of polish.
