Here Comes Santa Claus...

Well, not Santa Claus yet, but today we (I mean Orthodox people) celebrate Saint Nicholas Day.
St. Nicholas brings presents to well-behaved children. Apparently I was a good girl as I received a sweet present today :D.
Ok, now let's talk about nails :).
I used Golden Rose Rich Color #16 as a base color for my manicure and made gradient with Ados #502.
On top of my gradient I applied Christmassy nail water decals that I got from KKCenterHK.
Note: Be carefull while applying top coat, try to use less brush strokes to prevent ruining the images.



You can get these nail water decals here for 2,54 $.

Christmassy Fan Brush Manicure

Hi girls!
Today I want to show my first fan brush manicure :).
Nail polishes I used:
white base - Ados #502
green - Kiko #391


I wanted to add some sparkle so I applied 1 coat of Oriflame Nail Bling on top.


To make this manicure I used a fan brush from the nail art brush set that I got from KKCenterHK.


The set include 15 pieces. Brushes are made from the synthetic fibre so there's a warning not to use nail polish remover to clean them. It's recommended to clean the brushes in a warm water with a shampoo or shower gel after each use.


You can get nail art brush set here for 13,50 $.

Nail Mail From Serbia!

This week I received a super awesome parcel from Jelena from Serbia. We agreed to make a swap in the beginning of autumn, but due to some circumstances we managed to do it only now :).
It's funny that we both sent the parcels on the same day and received them together too, even though Jelena sent her parcel by plane :).


These nail polishes were on my wishlist: China Glaze Ruby Pumps and Thunderbird, Zoya Storm and Aurora, Essie Smokin Hot and Lapiz Of Luxury.


Jelena also sent me some extra nail polishes: Flormar #438 and #425, Essence Just Can't Get Enough and OPI Vesper (mini), chocolate and coffee sticks :).
Thank you very much, Jelena! I hope you like your new polishes as much as I like mine :).

Neon Green Christmas Tree :)

After floral mani that I showed in my previous post I want to show you more season appropriate manicure :).
I used Orly Star Spangled as a base and Essence Make It Golden to make the gradient.
On the accent nail I placed neon green circle studs that I got from KKCenterHK. The size of studs is only 2mm, so they can be used in many different manicures :).
On top of a Christmas tree I put a gold star and finished my manicure with a layer of top coat.
What do you think? :)



You can get neon green studs here for 4,50 $. The pack contains approx 100 studs.

I used Maybelline Party Blue, Avon Sunshine and dotting tools to make the flowers. I only regret that I didn't wait long enough before applying a top coat :-<.

And a quick comparison. From left to right: Golden Rose Rich Color #41, Catrice Shopping Day At Bluemingdales, Golden Rose Rich Color #16. #41 looks more purple than Catrice and #16 is darker.

November Haul

In November I bought my first Maybelline Polca Dots nail polishes. I picked #198 (a blue one) and #197 (glitter in a clear base). In the shop I've seen also Maybelline nail polishes from the Vintage Leather collection, but I didn't buy any because I wanted to check the swatches first :).
I bought Golden Rose sparkly orange textured nail polish Holiday #53 and fuzzy glitter Impression #13.
El Corazon nail polishes I got for review purposes from Scarlet-Ukraine. I got two art top coats: Spark and Holography-Spark (these bottles contain 75 ml!); Magic Oriental Night, Mint Ice Cream & Chocolate and Trendy Jeans (I already showed it to you here).
Nail art brushes, nail water deals and studs I got for review from KKCenterHK.
I also bought Eveline cuticle remover (which I love!), but I forget to include it in the photo :).


3 ml of nail polish vs 75 ml :)
