[Stamping] p2 Volume Gloss Happy Bride & Fresh Sister

Hi there!

I hope you are all okay. 
Today, I have a nice summery stamping with a saran wrap base for you!

First I used p2 Happy Bride in one coat. If I would have worn this polish on it's own, I would have applied a second coat.

I used p2 Fresh Sister and cling film to create this effect:

The stamping is done with the white stamping polish by essence and Cheeky's plate CH 14.

Sorry, but do we know each other?! #2 - Essence Miami Heat

Hi there,

I hope you're all having a great start into the new week.

We're having wonderful sunshine here in Germany.

Perfect weather for my next nail polish out of my box: "Sorry, but do we know each other?" - Colours I bought months ago but haven't tried them, yet.

Essence Miami Heat - Miami Roller Girl LE
This bright orange is out of the Miami Roller Girl Limited Edition by Essence and it's from the last summer.
I think, I have used it once for a summer skittle (see here) it but haven't used it for a propper manicure since then.

I applied two coats but 3 would have been better!

Sunday's Facebook Challenge - Shadow/Double Stamping

Hi there,

I hope you're all having a great and wonderful sunny weekend!

Today's challenge theme on our Facebook group is double or shadow stamping.
Honestly I haven't tried that shadow stamping before so this was my first attempt.

I applied P2's pearly yellow in three coats. I love the wonderful subtle shimmer, but you have to apply at least three coats of this polish.

I stamped with Konad m65 and first with A England Princess Sabra. This is veeery subtle and you have to look twice to see the stamping.
The second hue is Saint George, also from Adina's wonderful A England collection.

Turqoise - Salmon Combination with white Polka Dots

Hi there,

today, I have an easy, yet wonderful manicure for you.

I saw a similar colour combination on this wonderful blog, and so I used it as an inspiration to create my own manicure.
Actually, this blog has some great manis and colour combinations, her skills and ideas are amazing and so inspiring!

This blog used a mint hue, while I'm using a turqoise shade by Manhattan. The peach-apricot-coral-salmon hue I used is P2 Being in heaven, that's the own brand of Germany's wonderful drugstore dm.

I applied the turqoise in 2, the salmon in 3 coats:

The applied the white polka dots with a dotting tool using NYC's Pinstripe White.

Sorry, but do we know each other?! #1 - Manhattan 51K + Maybelline Speckled Pink

Hi there,

maybe you have the same problem! 
When you are a collector of nailpolish you have some colours you bought, but till now, you haven't tried them. 
Last week I was just looking at my stash and found loads of polishes, I haven't tried, yet. 
So I decided that I will try and wear some of those at least once a week!
I put them all in a basket and so I will pick one every time:

So, today's choice is a perfect choice for the Summer!
I bright and vibrant pink, you just have to love!

Manhattan 51K - I think I got it as a present with some other Manhattan polishes and I think, I used this hue before in some nail art, but I haven't worn it just the way it is.

But sooo beautiful.

I applied 3 coats.

To give it a different look, I've used Maybelline's Color Show Polka Dots in Speckled Pink on top:

Sunday Facebook Challenge - Birthstone Colour - Emerald Green

Hi there,

today's theme of the facebook stamping group is "Birthstone Colour"

I am born in May, so my color is EMERALD

Emerald is a symbol for rebirth and it should grant youth, good fortune and forsight to the owner. 

The word origin is Smaragdós/Greek or Smaragdus/Latin wich is translated as green gem. Emerald itself is derived from Esmeralda/Esmeraldus (vulgar Latin) a  variant of the Latin word Smaragdus.

Actually, there are some greens in my stash, but it took me a while to find the perfect green for this nail art.

China Glaze Jolly Holly & Glittering Garland are the both greens I used - I used the first one in two coats over Essie Help me grow and sealed it with Essence BTGN Top Sealer. Then I used a sponge and Glittering Garland to put it on the tips.
I stamped with H&M Golden Treasure and Konad m78. Actually this is one of my favourite image plates! I finished my stamping with Essence BTGN Top Sealer.

[NOTD] Maybelline Berry Fusion & Stamping with NYC Aqua Mystic

Hi there,

hope you all had a great start into the new week.

Today, I just have a NOTD with a stamping for you.

I used Essie Help me grow as a base, then, 2 coats of Maybelline's Berry Fusion, a wonderful darker, shimmery berry shade. Love colours like this. I used two coats but one should be enough, as well.

1 coat of Essie Good to go.

The image plate is an essence one, I got recently. They have a few nice ones, and I usually have no problems stamping with them.

I used NYC Aqua Mystic. It's from the foil explosion LE. I bought 3 shades while I was in Ireland, and I will show them to you, hopefully, this week.

I sealed it with Essence Better Than Gel Nails TC.

Have a wonderful week and don't forget:
