Acid Wash Mani

Hi lovelies!

First of all I’d like to THANK YOU all so much for your support with the launch of Keep S’Myelin! So many of you supported me and therefore also the National Multiple Sclerosis Society that it just made me speechless. I might have needed a tissue at some point.
The first batch sold out fast and now I’m busy mixing another batch. For that reason it became a pre order which means that future orders of Keep S’Myelin will take 5-10 business days to ship. It will still be available until the end of this month. Then I will make the donation to the NMSS and will e-mail the confirmation to everyone who’s purchased one or more bottles.
THANK YOU! You guys rock!

I think a year (or maybe even two) has past since I did a so called acid wash mani. Since it’s such an awesome look I decided to give it another try. llarowe opi anny1How on earth did you do this, you ask? It’s super easy actually but it does ask for patience. Choose the colors you’d like to work with, here I’ve used three. Start with the first color and make sure it’s opaque. Finish with one coat of (fast drying) top coat and give it approx. ten minutes to dry thoroughly. Then apply your second color and wait for it to dry. Same goes for the third color. Now, let the fun part begin. Take a qtip, dipped in acetone or nail polish remover and gently ‘remove’ the layers of polish until you get the desired look. Finish with top coat and you’re done! :D

The polishes that I’ve used here are:

Keep S’Myelin – Multiple Sclerosis Awareness

Hi beauties!

Today is a special day. Because as of today Keep S’Myelin is available at the shop. Why so special? Well, because I designed this polish to raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. €1,00 of every sold bottle will be donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.
There is as yet NO CURE for MS…

Help find a cure before MS gets on my last nerve!

In advance, thank you from the bottom of my heart to help raise awareness!

Easy Galaxy Look with El Corazon polishes

Hi polished beauties!

Today I have a kind of galaxy look to show you. And the best thing is, it’s super easy to create :)el corazon - 421h 25 large hologram1For this mani I used Liquid Leather by China Glaze as a base. When that was dry I used a sponge to randomly dab the following polishes on my nails, all by El Corazon:
Magic Heart of Ocean (423/576)
Magic Attraction (423/554)
Magic Tenderness (423-558)
To create an even more galaxy look I topped this with the large hologram top coat (421h/25), also by El Corazon.el corazon - 421h 25 large hologram2el corazon - 421h 25 large hologramWhat do you think of this galaxy look?

El Corazon polishes are available at their website and at Hypnotic Polish.

Please check back here tomorrow. I have a very special polish coming to the shop and will be sharing the details here tomorrow :)

Nail Art with POW! nail vinyls

More and more brands are coming up with nail vinyls in the most awesome designs. While browsing at The Nailista Shop the ‘POW! nail stickers’ caught my eye. I decided to create some ‘Pow! Boom! Wow!’ -or whatever you’d like to call it- nail art with them. Here’s how it turned out:pow1Not perfect but I like how these turned out. I started with painting each nail in two different colors of nail polish and topped it with one coat of a fast drying top coat. When that was completely dry I applied the nail vinyls in such a way that the two base colors met in between the two vinyls. Then I applied black nail polish, removed the vinyls and waited for it to dry. Meanwhile I used a dotting tool to add some dots. Finish with top coat and done!

Polishes used:
ANNY: What else (white)
ANNY: Die for high heels (red)
OPI: The IT Color (yellow)
China Glaze: Liquid Leather (black)

El Corazon: Kiss of Venus (423/570) – Magic Collection

Hi lovelies,

Here’s an extra post for you since I have lots more to show you and think it’s time to catch up :) el corazon - 423-570 magic kiss of venus1I believe the polishes from the Magic Collection by El Corazon started my love for this brand. There are many different colors to choose from, all jam packed with shimmer. The formula of the ones I tried so far is great. Shown here is two coats Kiss of Venus (423/570) plus top coat. The shimmer is more noticeable in real life. el corazon - 423-570 magic kiss of venusEl Corazon polishes are available at their website and at Hypnotic Polish.
