Born Pretty Yellow Series Stamping Polish #103


Hello lovelies!

Remember that water lily mani? Well I used an untried for the green in that one,  which inspired me to try it for real!  There usually is no reason for polishes to become untrieds... Other than a lack of time and the stash becoming bigger and bigger... and the fact that I want to give the polishes the love they deserve! So I showed some love to Aliquid Lacquer "Yooper" and tested a new BP stamping polish while I was at it!

Incidental Twin "Sinners Must Be Punished"


Hello lovelies!

I have a gorgeous gorgeous polish to show! It's Incidental Twin "Sinners Must Be Punished", a dark purplish old-blood red jelly with steel coloured hexes and microflakes. It is part of The Morningstar Line - a nail polish collection inspired by the awesome TV show Lucifer! This polish is for Maze...

This is three thin easy coats with top coat. It is absolutely stunning, seductive, mysterious and kick-ass, like Maze. Look at it up close:



Of course such a beauty needed some complimentary stamping!

I decided to stamp it with a steel stamping polish, Konad #42, and some hell flames from HēHē-036, which I recently ordered from aiyoohehe.com

Do you watch the show? I can't wait for it to start again, I'm completely smitten with Tom Ellis...

Incidental Twin "Stranger Things" line


Hello lovelies!

So if you have Netflix, you've probably seen Stranger Things and if you haven't, you seriously have to see it. Being a child of the 80's, I truly appreciate the way this show incorporates the 80's vibe, the adventure movie feel, the typical teenage drama and the suspense, all with awesome special effects and a strong story line. The lovely Sami from Incidental Twin created some polishes celebrating this wonderful tv show and I have two of them to show you today!

The Digit-al Dozen Redoes Art - Water Lilies


Hello lovelies!

Pffff I made it, the last installment of this month's Digit-al Dozen week! It was such an incredibly fun theme this month, but I struggled to get everything done. But I made it and am only two days late ;)

I'm finishing off this week with water lilies and I think you all know whom I was inspired by.

The Digit-al Dozen Redoes Art - Lotus


Hello lovelies!

So I'm still a day behind, and I won't be able to catch up, so on day 4 I present you day 3 of The Digit-al Dozen Redoes Art! Keeping in tune with my floral theme, I decided to think back to when flowers first appeared in art (art which has withstood the sands of time and is widely known). So Egypt and their blue loti sprang to mind!


The Digit-al Dozen Redoes Art - Peonies


Hi lovelies!

After the poppies, I was in the mood for more florals. Hence, I stole Marisa's approach of doing a week of flowers! She did amazing freehand florals from different decades; I'll do florals from different ages and art movements. Today I have peonies from the Middle Ages:
