Snowdrops - vintergækker

They must be here soon – I long for them…
The base color is Jessica Surfer Boyz’n Berries
and I sponged the tips with Butter London Wallis and OPI Goldeneye in a random pattern. I painted the snowdrops with acrylic craft color, and the top coat is Seche Vite.
Nu MÅ vintergækkerne da snart komme – jeg savner dem, har læst at de er fremme nogen steder…
Grundfarven er Jessica Surfer Boyz’n Berries
, og jeg duppede tippene med Butter London Wallis og OPI Goldeneye i et tilfældigt mønster. Jeg malede vintergækkerne med akryfarve – og toplakken er Seche Vite.

Flowers for a hipster chick

The base color is Chick Hipster Chick, the BLIND passenger, a yellow-based green polish with holographic micro glitter. I was pretty sure it would clash completely with my skin, and it did. So I painted a dark green flower vine with bright flowers in acrylic craft color, and top coated with Seche Vite.
Grundfarven er Chick Hipster Chick, den blinde passager, en gullig grøn lak med holografisk mikroglitter. Jeg var ret sikker på at den slet ikke ville gå sammen med min hudfarve. Derfor malede jeg mørkegrønne ranker med klare blomster med akrylfarve, og toplakken er Seche Vite.

Untraditional color blocks - Atsy Wednesday

The them for this Artsy Wednesday is color blocks, and I'll show them used as a part of an abstract nail art.
I have previously shown swatches of them, and here they are combined in an abstract mani. On one coat of the gorgeous shimmery deep forest green Illamasqua Viridian I painted a random pattern with Illamasqua Glitterati using the bottle brush. Then I used a gold striper to surround the Glitterati and add a little extra pattern before I top coated with Seche Vite.
Check out some other Artsy Wednesday color block mani's
Michelle - Lab Muffin,  Alanna - Pretty Purple Polish, Melanie - Nail & Polish, Jessica - Beauty Gnome,  Emily - An Accent Nail, Catrine - Unnakednails, Ameerah - Valiantly Varnished,

Picture Polish Jealousy, Jade and Honey dew - swatches

Today I have 3 green Picture Polish polishes to show you...
The first was sent to me by NORWAY NAILS - please check their amazing store....
Jealousy is a grass green PACKED with glitter, and here it's shown in ONE - I repeat ONE coat + Seche Vite top coat - pretty amazing, huh..? It applied fairly thick, but not in the goopy way, it’s nice and manageable, just very rich on the brush.

Next up is Jade - a pretty mint green with a lovely shimmer. This is 2 coats without top coat!

Finally we have Honey Dew, that I got from my dear friend Lydia in a swap.
It's a beautiful pale mint, and here shown in two coats, but you might want to apply 3 thinner coats depending on how you normally apply polish.
All of the above polishes are available in NORWAY NAILS - they ship throughout Scandinavia...

Do you have problems commenting?? I had to change settings because of an insane amount of spam, so now only "registered users" can comment, but I'm not sure if that means all of you!
Please send me an email on if you experience any problems commenting....!!!

Illamasqua Bright Nail Quad - Prism, Harsh, Elope and Throb - swatches

 Illamasqua Bright Nail Quad contains Prism, Harsh, Elope and Throb

Prism is a shimmer perfect to use over other colors, on top half it's shown over black, and on the bottom half over a medium blue and lavender - perfect for effect on other polishes and in nail art. To my knowledge it's only sold in this set.

Harsh is in my opinion a PERFECT silver glitter - I am very happy about this one too!

Elope is a beautiful emerald green, it needs 3 coats to be opaque.

I know, I have shown Throb before - but I think it should be shown together with the others from this set - it's a beautiful blood red...
