Valentine's Day Challenge - Love & Kisses

Hello my lovelies!

This one comes a bit late, but I just didn't had the time to do my nails and post them. I am still at my boyfriend's place and I have no space for myself to do nails and pictures and I don't have the usual lightning that I have at home :P And to top it all, I had to file down my nails because I broke 2 of them .. aargh how I hate that! ^^

So, I hope I'll be able to do the rest of the 31 Day Challenge nails ^^

But for today, here is the love and kisses mani:

I used Catrice - I'm so aNude, P2 - Fever for the stamping and topped it off with Essence - Matt about you!

I really need to practice stamping a little bit more - the placement etc. 

I still hope you like it! Thanks for reading and see ya soon! :)

Valentine's Day Challenge - Roses

Hello my dear readers!

I had something completely different in mind for today, but since I am at my bf right now I didn't take so much polish with me .. and of course not the things I needed for the challenges! :))

So I recreated -this tutorial- and it turned out better than expected:

I used only Essence polishes: Black is Back, Snow Alert!, Back to the 50's and Roller Coaster. 

For the first time I did 2 accent nails, because I saw it on many blogs and I kinda liked the idea :) 
What do you guys think of the 2 accent trend? 

Thanks for reading and make sure to check out the other girls as well!

Valentines's Day Challenge - Red Passion

Hello my lovelies!

I don't even wanna post this look today... but I have to! First I wanted to do some beautiful nails (already had some mani in mind I wanted to recreate), but there was no time and no place to do it here..
No problem so far, I still can do some make-up right?
Well, I am at my boyfriend's place and the light here is just extremely bad. I basically could have done the make-up in the dark..maybe it would have turned out better then ^^

But let's talk about the make-up! Obviously I had to use some red and since the challenge is "Red Passion" I knew there had to be some smokey eye going on there as well!

Products I used:
- P2 Perfect Eyes Base
- P2 Perfect Look Lip Liner 141 Volcano  
- BH Cosmetics 120 Color Palette (red)
- Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 (Colors: Maple + Dune + Pillow Talk)
- Catrice Absolute Matt Palette
- W7 - In the Buff (Sand)
- Maybelline Gel Eyeliner 01 Black
- Astor Seduction Codes Mascara
- Ardell Black Wispies

One side has more black than the other and is better blended, one eye lash is put on good the other one extremely crooked ...aaah! I hate it xD I am such a perfectionist and I can't look too much at this picture .. 

Thanks for reading anyway! And see ya soon with some better post :)

31 Day NA Challenge - Day 26: Inspired by a Pattern

Hello my dear readers!

Today I have a beautiful mani for you! I am simply in love with everything - the design, how the colors look together and how eye-catching it is!

I wanted to try out a chevron pattern for so long now and I felt like this would be the perfect opportunity for it :) And here it is:

I used Barry M - Peach Melba, let it dry and added some tape to create the chevron pattern. Then I applied Catrice - Goldfinger on top of it and that's it!

Chevron pattern is such a beautiful nail art design and you can do so many different color combinations with it! It is definitely one of my favorite mani's ever! 

Thanks for reading and see you soon! <3 

Valentine's Day Challenge - Glitter Hearts

Hello again! :)

Today is already the third challenge out of 6! How time flies :D
I wanted to do some crazy make-up, I already had 1-2 ideas, but I'm still so sick...my nose is red and my skin is so dry from all the tissues I had to use and I don't feel like doing make-up at all ^^

But I will do one for the next challenge, I promise ;)

For today I have some cute little glitter hearts for you:

I used Essence Black is Back as a base and painted the hearts on with Art de Lautrec 18 first, because the red glitter polish I wanted to use is pretty sheer! Finally I added Avon Ruby Slippers on top of the red and finished it with one coat of TC. 

It's simple and with some little fantasy you can see the hearts! :D Looking at the nails now I realize they could have been more sparkly and glittery! 

Hope you still like them :) 

Thanks for reading my lovelies and see ya soon! <3

31 Day NA Challenge - Day 25: Inspired by Fashion

Hello beauties!

I have such a luck sometimes... I arrived at my boyfriend's place on Wednesday and now I'm so sick, I just stay in bed all day long and feel miserable. Why, oh universe, why??

Nonetheless I have a post for you today! Today's challenge was pretty easy actually - I just searched Google for some fashion inspiration and one of the first pics caught my eye immediately!

(Source: Google)
And here is my mani inspired by the look above: 

For this nail art I used only Essence polishes, which are: Snow Alert!, Black is Back and Back to the 50's (50's Girls Reloaded LE). 

I don't know why, but once I had finished the mani I thought it would look awesome in matte. So I added one coat of Essence Matte TC - and I have to say I like the result!

Hope you like it and thanks for reading <3

31 Day NA Challenge - Day 24: Inspired by a Book

Hello my lovelies!

Today's challenge was difficult only because of one thing - I absolutely love books and didn't knew which one to choose :D
But the first one that came to mind is a book by Frank Schätzing - Der Schwarm (engl. title: The Swarm), which is one of my absolute favorite ones! I can only recommend it, if you like science-fiction and thrillers!

The nail art is inspired by the book cover and here it is:

I used Essence Black is back as a base and painted the blue iris with Essence Just Rock it! and Sensique Lakier Sky Blue (and a few mixtures of those 2 colors!).

The hardest thing was to draw a perfect circle haha :D 

Tell me, what is your favorite book/author or genre? 

Thanks for reading and see ya soon! <3

Valentine's Day Challenge - Soft Pink

Hello ladies (and gentleman :P)

By the time you read this I am sitting in a bus on the way to my boyfriend... a nice 7 hour drive, yay! Like I mentioned in the last Valentine's post, I planned to do a make-up for every challenge as well, but I didn't have the time to do one for today's challenge - I'm sorry!

For the nails though I tried something completely new to me - sugar spun nails! I had this on my to do list for ages and now I finally had the chance to do them!

As a base I used a mixture of Catrice The Pinker The Better and Essence Snow Alert! to make the bright pink a little bit lighter. For the sugar spun I used Essence Sow Alert! again.

I have to say it takes a little bit of practice and a hell lot of patience, because you have to wait for the polish to dry and get stringy in order to do this technique. If you don't know it, just search Youtube for a tutorial ;)
But all in all I love how it looks on the nails! (I didn't add any TC)

Btw, my cuticles hate me! After 3 weeks of  doing my nails every single day they start to look so dry! I can't wait for the 31 Day Challenge to end :D

Thanks for stopping by and see ya soon! 
And don't forget to check out the other ladies! <3

31 Day NA Challenge - Day 23: Inspired by a Movie

Hello beauties!

Since 50 Shades of Grey will be released in a few days, I thought I'd do some nail art inspired by this movie :P I read the book as well and I'll go and see the movie with a friend once it comes out ..Yes, I admit it! :D

Here it is:

I used Essence Got a secret and Essence You're a Heartbraker (50's Girls Reloaded LE) for the gradient (plus a little bit of Technic - Silver holo). On the ring finger I painted on a tie with Essence Moonless Night (Dark Romance LE) and did the accents with the same silver holo polish that I used before. (This polish doesn't have a name!)

I incorporated some grey's, but I'm far from 50 shades! :D And of course a tie, because he almost always wears one! (And it's on the book cover as well)

Hope you like it!
And tell me, will you go see the movie? ;) 

See ya soon and thanks for reading!

Valentine's Day Challenge - Romantic Lace

Hello my lovelies!

Today starts the Valentine's Day Challenge that Kaki and me created! I'm so excited to see what all the girls come up with :D

My plan was to create both make-up and nail art for every challenge, but I realized today this will be pretty hard! I sometimes don't have that many ideas :D

So here is my romantic lace inspired mani:

I used Catrice Must Have STEELetto, a gorgeous light purple metallic, as a base, a lace-like image from an Essence Stamping plate and Konad Black Nail Polish.
I didn't stamp the image on the nail, but instead I created nail decals and just put them on the nail where I wanted them. It's much more easier that way! If you wanna see a tutorial on this technique just let me know ;) 

To make the line more smooth I added some dots with the same Konad polish and finished it with a layer of TC.

I wanted to do some lace pattern around the eyes as well, but I didn't manage to do it... I don't have such a thin brush to create such a look. So instead I used the same metallic purple eye shadow to match it with the nails: 

Products I used: 
- P2 Perfect Eyes Base
- P2 Intensive Kohl Eyeliner 020 Cool Alaska 
- BH Galaxy Chic (Color: Cosmic)
- Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 (Colors: Villan + Pillow Talk)
- Catrice Absolute Matt Palette
- P2 Glow Up Highlighter - High Beam
- Maybelline Gel Eyeliner 01 Black
- Astor Seduction Codes Mascara
- Catrice Single Lashes (on outer corner)

The eye shadow is much more similar to the nail polish in real life and much more shimmery too. 
I hope you like it and don't forget to check out the other ladies as well! 

Thanks for reading! <3
