Isadora Holographic Nails - Glowing Beetle

Hello there,

today, I want to show you one of Isadora's beautiful holographic nailpolishes, named "Glowing Beetle".

It's with turquoise and silver glitter and square shaped holo particles.
The base is sheer, so I don't know, if Isadora meant to wear it as a topper on a, let's say creme polish.

I didn't use a coloured base and applied the holographic polish directly onto my basecoat. I applied three coats and finished with one coat of fast drying top coat:

[NOTD] Manhattan Community Colours Fall Collection "Coffee Cream" & "Lil ol' Rose"

Hi there,

I hope you all had a great start in this new week.

Today, I want to show you another stamping with one of my favourite stamping plates Konad m65. I just love the roses image.

So with this goes two new polishes, that are new for this autumn. It's Manhattan's Community Colours "Bohemian Look". 20 wonderful colours with different finishes, creme, foil or glitter. 

Coffee Cream is a wonderful nude, cream hue with a wonderful shimmer. You can't see it on my pictures as it is raining here in Germany and so it's really dark and dull. 
I needed to apply three coats and actually, there could have been a fourth one on some nails.

For the stamping, I used Lil ol' Rose. It's a wonderful dusky pink! This one has a creme finish.

Sunday's Facebook Challenge - "Stamp on a nude base"

Hi there,

I am sorry, that I wasn't able to participate in the last challenges on the Facebook group.
So I am happy to show you my many for this Sunday's challenge.

Stamping on a nude base was the winner and I really like this theme. A nude base is great to stamp with a special colour and so I used A England's St. George for my Stamping.
The nude nailpolish is fancy nude by Lacura/Aldi Süd, available here in Germany. I used two coats of this nude and it was easy to apply. 
Stamping plate is Konad m-57.

[New in] Manhattan & Playboy Super Nails Limited Edition

Hi there, 

last week, I saw the limited nail polishes by Manhattan in coorperation with Playboy and so I decided to get 2 out of the 7 colours.

And today, I want to show you both of them!

The first one is Fligh High a pearly white hue with white and silver glitter. I got the impression that this colour has a little pink in it. 

The second one is Redtastic. A bright tomato red with red and silver glitter. 

I like both of them as I haven't had colours/glitter combinations like these in my stash.

I needed three coats for a nice finish as both of the varnishes are really sheer, but it was easy to apply them, and they dried quickly.

[Stamping] p2 Volume Gloss Happy Bride & Fresh Sister

Hi there!

I hope you are all okay. 
Today, I have a nice summery stamping with a saran wrap base for you!

First I used p2 Happy Bride in one coat. If I would have worn this polish on it's own, I would have applied a second coat.

I used p2 Fresh Sister and cling film to create this effect:

The stamping is done with the white stamping polish by essence and Cheeky's plate CH 14.

Sorry, but do we know each other?! #2 - Essence Miami Heat

Hi there,

I hope you're all having a great start into the new week.

We're having wonderful sunshine here in Germany.

Perfect weather for my next nail polish out of my box: "Sorry, but do we know each other?" - Colours I bought months ago but haven't tried them, yet.

Essence Miami Heat - Miami Roller Girl LE
This bright orange is out of the Miami Roller Girl Limited Edition by Essence and it's from the last summer.
I think, I have used it once for a summer skittle (see here) it but haven't used it for a propper manicure since then.

I applied two coats but 3 would have been better!

Sunday's Facebook Challenge - Shadow/Double Stamping

Hi there,

I hope you're all having a great and wonderful sunny weekend!

Today's challenge theme on our Facebook group is double or shadow stamping.
Honestly I haven't tried that shadow stamping before so this was my first attempt.

I applied P2's pearly yellow in three coats. I love the wonderful subtle shimmer, but you have to apply at least three coats of this polish.

I stamped with Konad m65 and first with A England Princess Sabra. This is veeery subtle and you have to look twice to see the stamping.
The second hue is Saint George, also from Adina's wonderful A England collection.

Turqoise - Salmon Combination with white Polka Dots

Hi there,

today, I have an easy, yet wonderful manicure for you.

I saw a similar colour combination on this wonderful blog, and so I used it as an inspiration to create my own manicure.
Actually, this blog has some great manis and colour combinations, her skills and ideas are amazing and so inspiring!

This blog used a mint hue, while I'm using a turqoise shade by Manhattan. The peach-apricot-coral-salmon hue I used is P2 Being in heaven, that's the own brand of Germany's wonderful drugstore dm.

I applied the turqoise in 2, the salmon in 3 coats:

The applied the white polka dots with a dotting tool using NYC's Pinstripe White.
