Japanese mani for my Japanese friend!


Hi lovelies!

Sorry for having been MIA for so long; I had caught a bad bug and was kinda busy fighting it... But today's a happy day, for my Japanese friend celebrates her birthday! Since I haven't seen her in ages, I thought I'd do a mani in her honour.

Owls, Flowers & Lots of Pink!


Hi lovelies!

Did a fun mani today!


This was very simple. The owl is a decal from BPS, which has a clear background, so I put it over two coats of Sinful Colors "Snow Me White". The other nails have a base of Rimmel "Funtime Fuchsia", 2 coats. Then I grabbed stamping plate BP-78 and BPS baby pink stamping polish and voilà! Top coat and done. I really recommend this stamping polish, it stamps super easily!

The pics have all been taken in my lightbox, as the entire day was so dreary, that there simply wasn't enough light! This mani sure improved my day, though ;) Oh  if you want to go and get these pretties, be sure to use discount coupon code SXDQ10 at checkout!


So what do you think? Do you like my decal-stamp combo?

Splitting and peeling nails: my rescue product


Hi lovelies!

I often read questions on the internet on how to cure or prevent splitting and peeling nails. I finally found something that works almost instantly! My Cinderella hand had been splitting and peeling forever and I had tried EVERYTHING! Eventually I tried Herôme "Nail Growth Explosion", in an effort to speed up the nail growth process. And to my surprise, the peeling stopped! Let's dive into that a bit more:

Hi lovelies!

I thought I'd spam you with intense beauty today, as the world has been showing us so much ugliness off late. I ordered these two amazing holos from Celestial Cosmetics, through the Hella Holo Customs Group: Hokulani and Poipu Sunset. They're inspired by Hawai'i. Let's have a look!

Roses are white, nails are blue...


Hello lovelies!

More floral stamping today.. I know, I'm boring, but I just really enjoy florals and stamping!

Red, gold and leaves


Hi lovelies!

Yeah, I know, the title is very unimaginative, but after a lot of thought, this was the best I could do. The mani is actually better than the title:

Residual Halloween Manis - Oops!


Hello lovelies!

I meant to post these Friday and Saturday, in time for and on the time of Halloween, but both days I was not feeling well at all, so I couldn't muster up the strength to post these. Therefore I'll show them now and perhaps you can use them as inspiration for next year! 

Let's start with a mani that was loosely inspired by Cosmetic Sanctuary. I did not have her awesome vinyls or her awesome nail charm (I ordered one, but it hasn't arrived yet), so I created this:
