Looks like ripples in the surface of a glass of water, doesn't it? At least that's what it reminds me of.
Picture Polish Black that I mattified using OPI matte top coat. I LOVE matte black, especially in contrast with something shiny!
I painted the circles using STYLondon Onyx, which is a black one step gel polish (meaning no tacky layer after curing) which makes it perfect to use with the magic shifting powders from What's Up Nails. In this case, I used Paradise Powder and it truly is magical!
Masura gel top coat over the whole design. I like it matte, but I really like it shiny too! What's your favorite of the two?

I loooove cats! Black cats especially, maybe because so many people dislike them, or maybe because they're just incredibly gorgeous and sweet <3
The base polish is Masura Zeus on Golden Cloud (swatches & review here), it's a magnetic polish that makes a really cool effect when exposed to a strong magnet when it's still wet. It reminded me of cat eyes immediately!
I painted over the base polish, leaving only the eyes open, with acrylic paint and added the details with brushes from my new Fine Line brush set from Winstonia Store. These are REALLY awesome for fine lines! And oh yes, they are having a 30% off deal on brushes only today!

This gasoline nail art is SO REFLECTIVE!! You can actually see my head & my camera in the nails XD
What's Up Nails magic shifting powders called, in order from cuticle to tip: Royalty, Paradise, Absinthe & Dragon. I do think I need to practice making the transition from one powder into another even smoother.
With these color shifting powders, the 'gasoline' nails keep changing their appearance as the light hits them differently. It's awesome and mesmerizing <3

This gradient is so gorgeous in real life! It's so... depthy, is that a word? It just flares up in the light and I love it :D
reviewed last Friday. Really easy to use in a gradient, because they're opaque and dry pretty fast! I love how dynamic this design looks and...
@creatinails. I painted the pattern with gel polish and sprinkled some of this stuff on top. Then cured it, and the job is done!
It feels really rough so it wasn't very comfy to wear at first, but it got better after a few hours :-p

This might seem a bit crazy here on my blog... I know there hasn't been a review, or swatches, on PiggieLuv.com for a year now but I've been missing it more and more! I got sent the Holiday Nights collection by Artistic Nail Design for some cool nail art to share with you, and you will see those designs over the next few weeks, but I figured hey, why not swatch them as well? Click to see more!

Happy Thanksgiving to my friends from the US! Aaaand happy random Thursday to everyone else who, like me, is spending the day working, eating normally and freezing their ass off.
@nailallie and it made my mouth water!
The base is Artistic Nail Design Mischief is my Middle Name. I'm not a fan of red, but my dad LOVES it! I'm happy I found a way to use this bright firetruck red because it's perfect for the season. I painted the pastry stuff with acrylic paint.
I didn't make actual cherry pie today, but I did make something called soesjes! My dad loves those too, so he and my mom ate almost all of them already :-p
