Glow up already or I'm movin' on!


Oh sometimes the tittles really do write themselves :)
Just a quick post today, I'm tired as hell and I'm looking forward to 12 hours of lab work and classes *double yay* I usually don't get too festive around this time of the year so I don't know what got into me with this mani. Kinda embarrassing but I rocked this on my toes too :) I used OPI Glow up already!, gold based glitter with red, pink, green and blue sparse glitters in it and Essence Movin' on, my go to nudish shade. I also added gold studs cause why not.

That's it for today, hope we all have super productive day tomorrow :)

Review: Born pretty store QA95 stamping plate


Here we go, last Born pretty store product of the bunch. QA95 stamping plate was on my wishlist for quite some time and since it's science related, I just couldn't pass it :) I borrowed this photo from their link cause I suck at taking normal pics of plates. You can see it full of different formulas, a flask and a structure (I feel a bit ashamed but at the moment I have no clue what that is :) I wanted it to look like a blackboard (green where I live) so I went with a matte, shimmery base (you can see the beautiful Veruschka here on it's own). The plate is etched very nicely, the only problem is that the images are very close together which makes isolating single images a bit hard. Other than that a pleasure to work with.

Review: Bat wing glitter with Essence Oh my glitter!

Such a long and catchy title, I know :) I knew I needed this adorable Born pretty store bat glitter in my life the second I laid my eyes on them. They're glitters that are black and shaped like a bat = sold :) Unfortunately, the glitters are quite big and my nails curved so the placement of them on my nails was a bit of a struggle. I decided to pair them up but sadly that masks them up a bit. But as long as I know I'm wearing bats on my nails, I'm good :)
For the base I used Essence Oh my glitter!, gorgeous shimmery purple but quite a diva, I needed three coats and I still wasn't totally happy with the opacity.
All in all, the end effect was great <3

Hedonists lace


Sometimes you need some color in your life and Models own Hed Kandi Hedonist is the perfect polish for it. Unfortunately my camera didn't capture it's full effect but it's an amazing mix of pink, orange and red. The formula is great for a neon, I needed two coats to reach opacity. With the products I got sent from Born pretty store was also a product I bought; cute lace water decals. Love how delicate they look <3 Usually I pair lace designs with nude or pastel shades so this neon combination was a nice change. Hope you like this as much as I did :)

Review: Born pretty store studs

If you follow me on instagram you probably already saw the package Born pretty store sent me.
Next couple of posts will be sponsored but my reviews will be honest as always.
First thing that caught my attention were these iridescent pearl and black studs. I love the fact that you get a great variety, 2 colors and 3 different shapes. After closer inspection I also noticed that the color shift varies, combinations are green orange, purple blue, green pink..

P2 Opulent


Long week no post :) I had a busy week so I put blogging on the side track but I'm back with this little beauty <3 P2 Opulent is a black sand polish packed with green glitter. In the bottle it looks like a green purple duochrome but the effect is not visible on the nail. Still pretty :) It took two coats to get it opaque. I was also amazed by it's durability, I had it on for 6 day and it also survived swimming with minor tip damage. Strongly recommend :)

Damask nails with QA90


Like I said in my previous post,  P2 Lost in Glitter Get gorgeous! didn't wanna chip on my nails so I upgraded it with a gorgeous damask pattern from Born pretty stamping plate QA90
I like their stamping plates, I think the quality went up and they're often on sale. I bought this one a while ago for a dollar I believe. Excuse the shitty clean up, Konad black stamping polish is great for stamping and a pain for cleanup :(
