If you like lots and lots of sunshine in a way that it almost feels tropical, The Netherlands is the right place to be today. My lord… I do like sunshine and love it when it’s a nice warm temperature but this is just too much. I bet lots of people absolutely love this kind of temperatures. I sure don’t. The downside of this weather is that thunderstorm afterwards is guaranteed. For those of you who admire the sunshine today: enjoy and please don’t get toasted by the sunbeams!
Anyway… here’s a perfect polish for this weather… holo!
Meet 976-Babe from Llarowe‘s Pretty Woman Collection:Now, let the sun do the magic:Have a fantastic weekend!
Take a look at this stunning blurple holographic hue:Meet Rest In Piecesfrom the New Year, New CbL Collection by Llarowe. Such a fantastic color! And it also has blue micro shimmer in the mix. Sadly, the sun refused to show up when I took photo’s so I don’t have a sunny pic. You can really see the holo rainbow when the sun (or bright lighting) hits it. The formula is great. I used two easy coats plus top coat here.
Watermarble nail art… A hot mess? Fail? 9 times out of ten yes. But here’s a super easy technique with NO mess, NO bubbles and NO screw ups. For real! I used three coats of Barney by Llarowe as my base color. For the marble design I also used Vivian + Edward and What’s Your Dream?, both by Llarowe. How to? Go ahead and create your design in a cup of room temperature water as you’d do with a ‘regular’ watermarble. Let it dry for a few minutes. If the design got stuck to the side walls of the cup, now is the time to gently make sure it get’s ‘loose’ from the side walls. Now let it dry for another 15 minutes or so. When dry, gently pick up the design with tweezers and blow dry of pat dry with for example a piece of kitchen paper. When the design is dry you can cut it into pieces as desired. You can even cut it in the shape of your entire nail(s) to get a full coverage ‘decal’. Apply top coat and place the pieces on the nail. Finish with top coat and you’re done! Have you already used this technique? If not, just give it a try 😉
Today is Kingsday here in The Netherlands! 🙂 My Kingsday mani can be found on my Instagram, which will be up on the blog later (I’m behind with my blogposts).
Here’s Uptown Funk You Up from the An Ode To Bruno Collection by Llarowe:Already having that song stuck in your head? :p
What a gorgeous shade is this! And it’s holographic! I don’t have sunny photo’s of this to share with you. The holo effect is stunning! The formula is good. I used three thin coats plus top coat here but you can easily get away with two.To my Dutch friends: enjoy Kingsday! I hope you all have a blast!
Have you seen Leah Ann’s recent collection, the Oh, Baby! Collection? This collection consists of six soft holographic shades. There’s a mint holo too! I picked up The Crowning Moment, a gorgeous grape holographic shade:The holographic properties are obviously more visible in direct bright light or sunlight. The sun let me down again when I wore this. The formula is good. I used three thin coats plus top coat here.Did you pick up any polishes from this collection? This one is currently out of stock at Hypnotic Polish, the other six shades are still available at this time. And all shades are also available at Llarowe.
Here’s a squishy combo for you guys:This is three thin coats of Ambrosia by Ninja Polish which is a pink jelly. I’ve added one coat of The Ood by Llarowe and topped it with top coat. I love how these turned out. I’ll definitely see me wearing this combo during Summer 🙂What do you think of this combo?:*
Here’s an oldie but goodie for you. Sugar Plum Fairies by Llarowe is part of last years Xmas/Hanukkah Collection. I am in love with the pink and blue glitter in this one. The formula is great. I used two easy coats for full opacity and topped it with one coat of HK Girl top coat by Glisten & Glow.I believe this collection is discontinued but it is still available at Hypnotic Polish.
Have a great start of the week and don’t forget… stay polishes 😉
