CC Blue Heaven

Yeah, finally my 100th post on this special day. Happy Halloween!!!

Therefore, I've chosen a beauty to celebrate:
This is Blue Heaven from Color Club's Halo Hues collection. It's a gorgeous blue holo. Blue Heaven is the first real holo nail polish that I own and I totally love it! 
I'm curious if this one is suitable for stamping, because it's almost a one-coater. The pictures show 2 coats without topcoat.
Stay tuned for another gorgeous from Color Club's Halo Hues collection...

Have a great one!

Black & White Tribal Print

Tribal print or ethnic pattern? I'm not totally sure which term fits the mani I have today:
The base colour is 2 coats of Essence The Dawn is Broken from the Vampire's Love collection. I've seen the pictures of the coming Breaking Dawn Part 2 collection and it looks promising.

For the tribal print, I used the design from BM 204 and white Konad stamping polish. Then I filled some areas with black nail art pen and added a coat of SV topcoat.

Have a great one!

Inspired Ribbon Mani

Today's mani is inspired by a ribbon mani from the Nail Up! magazine (November 2012 issue).

This is the look in the magazine:
The base colours are 2 coats of Topshop Hopscotch (index, middle and pink) and Essence Black is Back (ring).

Index ~ I made 2 X's with black striping tapes to create the ribbons. Then gave the ribbons different colours: blue with KIKO 385 and purple with Essence Passion for Fashion. On the insection of the striping tapes, I placed golden glitters.

Middle ~ The same method as the index finger, just different colours. The purple ribbon is created with Essence Passion for Fashion and the black one with Essence Black is Back. I made dots on the ribbons with Topshop Hopscotch.

Ring ~ 2 coats of Essence Black is Back and added golden glitters.

Pink ~ The ribbon design from Konad M3 with black Konad stamping polish.
Have a wonderful one!

Halloween Wrap

Hi there!
Since Halloween is almost around the corner:
It's my first time using the Saran wrap technique. The base colour is Essence Black is Back and the second colour is Catrice Spiced Bronze. I just realized that I use Spiced Bronze only around Halloween =]

Have a great one!
