[NOTD] Primark Nail Polishes & Essie Penny Talk

Hi there

today is Monday, and so I needed to cheer myself up a little bit.
So I did some mani and stamping with some new Primark nail polishes.

This is with what I came up with.

I used Essie Help me grow as a base and applied one coat of the Primark varnishes. It's kind of a weird colour, kind of a khaki green, but it reminds me of a lake or pond at the same time. It's sometimes more than a teal. Definitely a green with a little teal/turqouise/blue hint.

Then I used a clingfilm and the second of the Primark ones. This one is a bright shimmery blue-turquoise-green. I really love how it turned out. I used Essie Good to go, to fix these colours.

Then I did the stamping with Essie Penny Talk, I really love this copper tone. I used the Cheeky CH-14 image plate. I finished with one coat of Sally Hansen InstaDri. Et voilà my manicure.

I really love how this colour-combination turned out.

Sunday's Facebook Challenge #10 Valentine's Day

Hi there,
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

Today's choice in our Facebook group Adventures in Stamping is Valentine's Day.

First I wanted to create a mani in pink or red, but then I went to our local H&M last afternoon and found Peppermint Fusion a beautiful shimmery light blue and so I decided to come up with some design in blue and brown.

As a base coat I used 2 coats of Essie Help me grow followed by two coats of H&M's Peppermint Fusion and finished with one coat of Essie Good to go.
I saw this colour on some blogs and really fell in love with it. When I first popped into the local H&M last September this colour was available, but I didn't buy it. And after that, I couldn't find it everywhere. So I am really happy that I found it yesterday.

So then I went with Manhattan St. Honore a shimmery brown by using the Cheeky plate CH15. I finished my mani with Sally Hansen InstaDri.

Sunday's Facebook Challenge #9 Stamp your profession

Hey there,
Sunday is almost over, but I was busy all the day, so I show you my mani for today's Facebook Callenge in the evening.

Today's topic is "Inspired by your profession". Well really difficult for me as I work as an Au Pair and I don't have any stamps that fit.

So I went with another thought. I am minding 4 kids, 3 boys and a cute little two year old girl. She is so cute, I really would steal her from her family if I could. So as she loves pink and Minnie Mouse and Hello Kitty I did a girly pinkish mani with a Hello Kitty stamping.

First I went with three coats of the beautiful "Prospect Park Pink" of NYC's. It such a nice elegant rose colour, I really fell in love with.

 Then I used Dashica's SdP-46 on the tumb and ring finger and Cheeky's CH-24 on the middle finger and used a dotting tool for the polka dots. The polish I used for this is OPI Mauving to Manitoba.
