christmas nail art simple design

A walking Christmas tree! A set of Christmas nail chips in a strong festive red. Look at those tiny, delicate frost patterns!

This one is red with bells, something you can do on your wedding day

This one has a sort of Christmas feel to it.

Misa Wishing On A Star

Hi all!

Happy monday! The weather has been a bit rainy around here, so I thought it was time for a darker polish to show you: Misa Wishing on a Star.

Misa Wishing on a StarMisa Wishing on a StarMisa Wishing on a Star, three coats in indirect daylight. Wishing on a Star has a black base, filled with tons of silver microglitter. I'd almost say this is glassflecked, but not just yet.. The microglitter flashes green and blue before my eyes, but I wasn't able to capture that with my camera. Since this contains a ton of microglitter, let's take a closer look, shall we?

Misa Wishing on a Star*insert ooh and aah here* Doesn't that look great? I can't help myself staring at these kind of shades when they're on my nails. It's just so sparkly!

Application was good, a bit watery at first but all evens out in two to three coats. Drying time was alright - not too quick. I managed to smudge the polish on one of my nails, so I had to redo my nails to be able to take some pictures of it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Nubar Iris Dust

Hi all!

How are you all doing? Surviving the week so far? I'm so damn tired since we have summertime (last sunday). My whole biological clock is screwed up! So I'll make it a relatively short post again, sorry about that. I have Nubar Iris Dust for you today. I have had her for quite a while now and I've worn her before, but I had serious shrinkage with Seche Vite before I could take pics. So here she is!

Nubar Iris Dust, four coats in daylight. Iris Dust is a quite sheer, but very pretty duochrome that flashes between dark, faded pink and bronze. I'd say you can best layer this over another color, since I still have VNL with those four coats. I think I would have liked her even more if the bronze was darker, but that's just me :)

The polish structure is quite thin, making it sheer. Drying time is quite long, but this is caused by the many layers I put on my nails before taking these pics. I didn't have issues with application whatsoever though.

What do you think of Iris Dust? Do you like duochromes as much as I do? It's just fascinating to see the colors change on my nails. What's your favorite duochrome?

Thanks for stopping by!
