Negative Space Heart

Have you noticed how around Valentine’s Day all nail art looks are some shade of pink? Yeah, me too. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pink nail polish as much as the next girl, I just don’t feel like adding to the pile myself, which is why I’ve gone in another direction for a look that is definitely V-day appropriate, but not as traditional.

Chunky gold glitter stripes

This one is a little more festive than what I was going for in terms of an everyday look, but I think it would look awesome for a party or something. I DID rock this one to work, so it all depends on your desired level of glam for the day, I suppose.

I did the stripes by applying striping tape over the purple and then sponging the gold glitter on near the cuticle area.

Nail Polish Declutter January 2017

I’m a nail polish hoarder. I keep all the ones I’m given, and I buy too many myself. After having bought some in November/December and receiving some for my birthday and christmas, I didn’t really have any space left in the drawer I keep them in, so I decided it was time to declutter and get rid of some.

I have divided them into 4 categories: Base and top coats, Empty/dry polishes, Don’t really use (anymore) and Dislikes.

Base and top coats

This category consists of base and top coats that I’ve kept as backups after buying new ones. You know, the bottles that are almost used up and impossible to use, but you convince yourself that it would be a waste to throw away that last drop? Yes, those ones. Continue reading

Purple negative space glitter gradient

I didn’t really know what to call this one, so bear with me on the name πŸ˜‰

This is a really subtle look that’s perfect for when you want that little bit extra without going all the way.

White Lace Stamping

Contains affiliate links

After I got this BORN PRETTY Christmas Nail Art Starry Sky Silicone Head Stamper I got the desire to stamp again. After having used my clear stamper without luck a number of times, I wasn’t really expecting this to work, but this is SO much better! I definitely recommend these silicone head stampers.

Just like the other day, I used this stamping plate: Lace Chevron Image Plate BORN PRETTY BP-L028 but with a different design this time.

After the bright orange manicure, I was in the mood for something subtle, but nice, and I think I hit the nail on the head with this one.

Orange Gradient Stamping

Contains affiliate links

Hey guys – I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s Eve. I had an exam to take care of this past week, but now I’m back with the first manicure of 2017.

In the midst of all this cold winter weather, I was in the mood for a bright, orange manicure, which is very unusual for me since I’m not a big fan of orange. But anyway, I got an orange polish for christmas, and I bought one myself back in november, and seeing all the oranges together inspired me to do this gradient.

The base is a gradient, and I tried my hand at gradient stamping with this stamping plate: Lace Chevron Nail Art Stamp Template Vines Image Plate BORN PRETTY BP-L028 as well.
