Red nails for New Years Eve

I am not a big red polish fan, this is why I don't own many red coloured polishes. But as the tradition saise, if you want to have luck and prosperity in the new year, at 12 o'clock you have to weare red. So, this is my not so well done new years mani. Unfortunetly I smuged the stamping on my ring finger.

I used two of my red polishes: for the base Australis nail colour - Valentine and Illamasqua red glitter polish as an accent. The stamping pattern is made with the plate BP-15 from the Born Pretty Store. 

May the new year bring you happines, helth and a lot of new achivements!
 I wish you all Happy New Year!

Christmas nails

As I mentioned in my last posts, I am very busy these days, so a few of my future posts will be scheduled.

This is a very simple Christmas manicure that is made with some cute water decals that I received from my Secret Santa, Anca - O fata simpla, frpm the Polish Addict Group. 

For the base I used a polish called Pretty. It supposed to be a color changing polish, but nothing happened, the color stayed the same in any condition. Despite of the fact that it does not changes it color, I like the finish and the shade of this polish. I had to apply it in three layers because it is a very shear one, but it dries super fast, so I had no problems with it. I added some white dots for the snow effect after I applied the decals. 

These are all the gifts that I received form my Secret Santa.
I hope you like my cute mani! I wish you all a peaceful and wonderful Christmas Holiday!

Born Pretty Store nail art brush set review

Hello ladies.

Today is review day for a fantastic set of brushes I received from the Born Pretty Store. This set  consist of 11 brushes and one dotting tool in a sealed package. Each brush comes with a plastic cap on it. I categorized the brushes and I will show you some designs you can make with them. First I want to mention that I am not an expert, so my designs are simple and easy ones.
Striping brushes. These are the most used ones! They are 5 of them in the set, a long, a medium, a short one and two detail brushes. With the first three one you can make those perfect long and thin lines on your nails, or even use them for thin details like outlines. With the detail brushes you can make swirls, flowers, petals or anything that is smaller!

Doting tool. This is an another object that I use very often for my designs. You can make small or even bigger dots with this tool, just let your imagination free!
Flat brushes. The set comes with 7 different sized and shaped flat brushes. The angle brushes are perfect for the brush stroke technique, to create flowers and any other detailed design. You can use them for cleaning too, if you make a mistake or the polish get's to the cuticles or skin, with a little acetone or polish remover and a thicker flat brush you can swipe and remove the mistakes.You can find at the end of this post a few designs made with these brushes.
Fan brushes. In the set are two of them. They are great for adding glitter or removing excess glitter from the nails or even creating tweed nails. The base for the last design is made with one of these brushes.

Don't forget to clean the brushes properly, because this way the quality of them will last much longer. I use these brushes exclusively with acrylic paint, but the manufacturer said that it can be used for gel nails too. This is a fact that I can not confirm, because I don't work with gel nails.
If you need this set of brushes you can find it here and any other nail art related stuff and much more. You can use my 10% off discount code from bellow. Just visit Born Pretty Store.

Konad stamped nails

I participated to a nail art contest made by Konad Romania. The whole idea was to use Konad plates to make any kind of manicure. I made a simple and elegant one, using plate M73 and two polishes: Orly Mysterious and Barry M. silver polish. I added some rhinestones too, for a more glamorous look.

The problem is that the contest was postponed because there were just a few participants.
 How do you like my mani? Do you use Konad stamping plates? Which is your favorite one?
Thank you for stopping by.

Easy chevron nail design, with a little help

I am sure you all know the usual tip guides for french manicures. Today I am going to show you a guide that helps you to achieve a chevron nail design in a few minutes. This is a product I received from the Born Pretty Store and it is called Creative French Manicure Wave Edge Tip Guides

The product is a simple sheet of paper that contains two columns of cut out wave shapes. Use a base color for your mani and after a longer time of drying, stick the guides on it as you wish and with other colored polishes paint on the remaining free spaces. The guides are quite sticky, so I suggest to put it first on your skin and after that place it on your nails. This way it is sure you wont ruin your base polish! 

All in all, the guides are very helpful, I never managed to make a proper chevron nail design with brushes. This way it is much easier!

I hope you like this manicure and color combination. You can find the product HERE and of course a lot of new nail art stuff too. Just visit the Born Pretty Store and if you make a purchase you can use my 10% off discount code from below! 

Now they have a HUGE Christmas Sale. Don't miss it!
