It's been ages since my last post, so I better get started again! And what better way to do that than with the souvenirs that my sister brought me from her short trip to Germany. While I requested just one crackle polish from p2, she surprised me with 4 more nail polishes! How sweet is that? Thanks silly one...

This one is from the Essence TE Urban Messages: no. 02 Skycraper. It's a beautiful beige with lots of tiny metallic blue shimmer which is visible on the bottle and well translated onto the nails. I've swatched two coats, but three would have been perfect.

What makes this polish so amazing and unique are the grey speckles which are not noticeable on the bottle, but do come out on the nails. I've never seen anything like it before, so I'm glad to be able to own one with this effect.

Have a wonderful one!

First Halloween Mani

This is the first time that I wear a Halloween themed mani. Thanks to the amazing BM plates, I am able to wear creepy but cool mani's on this years Halloween.

I used 2 coats of Catrice Spiced Bronze from the LE Caramé collection. Spiced Bronze is a beautiful bronze orange shimmer. It's just now that I realize Spiced Bronze's beauty because of the shiny shimmer.

The 2 designs are from the Bundle Monster image plate 224. I stamped the 'church' design twice on my index and middle finger and once on my pink. The overlap of the design on my middle finger did not come out good though. For stamping, I used Konad special stamping polish in black.

Do you also like autumn- and Halloween-themed manicures?

Have a great one!!!
