Before, there were unicorns, but since Summer is upon us everything is mermaid related right now. And the flakie trend is sweeping the nail nation. I am surprised too since flakie nail polishes are a part of manicure land…Continue

I made this title as click bait. I just couldn't pass this perfect opportunity. I hate the entire thing - with the same passion as I hate the Twilight books / movies. But I wanted to make some depressing grey nails and then I saw the movie trailer on the FB feed and realized that it somehow influenced me.…Continue

There are so many amazing and colorful nail polishes out there! I love all the shimmers, holos and flakies! And a constant #goals of mine is to make a manicure that features all of them. But this time I chose only 2 of my favorites - a polish with a holo finish and one with flakies inside.…Continue

Everybody and their mom is obsessed with rose gold everything! All that means is that they like the shade of colored gold - that is usually a hue of metallic that shifts from gold, pink to chopper. A color that is though to describe and even tougher to capture on camera.…Continue

I think galaxy nails will never go out of style. But to figure out how to make galaxy nail art and still keep it fresh and interesting is a challenge by now.
I was looking at my old BM-606 plate and noticed this weird chevron pattern and I got the idea for…Continue

We had a couple of rainy days here and I got a bit melancholy. So I turned to watching some movies that I had on my wait list and I discovered the masterpiece that is Crimson Peak.

This time I decided to make a nice post with all the shades of Spring time that you need to capture the magic of Easter on the tip of your fingers. Some of the shades are classic polishes that you get to see every season, some were specifically made for this Season, and the rest are some randoms that I thought need some love.…Continue

I created a manicure like this one a year ago, but never posted it since I didn't quite like it. Also I figured in a year's time my nails will be longer and I will have a bit more nail to work with. And just my luck! I broke my nails just in time for the Easter holidays. So here we go again! But this time I loved the result! It made me LOL so hard when wearing these ;)…Continue

After two 'non-traditional' Valentine's day manicures, I decided to make a super classic one. Since I didn't feel like pasting flowers all over my nails I choose flamingos as my main theme. I mean they are the perfect pink color for this season and they make little heart shapes with their necks when they kiss.…Continue

I wanted to make the cutest manicure with a very dramatic title since V-Day is almost here and I know not all girls want to wear the cutesy nail art that the nail salons offer. So if you are a bit of a rebel, feel free to take this picture to your nail lady and ask her to make you some unusual nails.…Continue

Sometimes you look at a nail design and you just gloss over the design and can't see the little details nail artists put into their work. I wanted to create something like that today - a birdcage that has trapped birds inside - but on the accent nail I created a bird that is free. Can you see it?…Continue
