Monday Blues: China Glaze Sky High-Top

Hello my lovelies! Another Monday, another blue manicure. This time it's a good day because it's the last Monday before my vacation, so things at work are already slowing down. I have an amazingly spectacular blue to show you today. Every time I order polishes from online e-tailers like Head2Toe Beauty, I browse through the older collections. And since I'm a big fan of China Glaze polishes, I always have to pick up some older ones to complete my collection. This time I chose a blue beauty that came out 5 years ago, in the Summer 2009 collection called Kicks. It's such a lovely color, but you can see that for yourself.

Trind Natural Nail Care Review

Hello my lovelies! Today I want to talk to you about nail care. For some of us, it's a boring subject while for others it's an obsession. Whether we like doing it or not, we all want strong beautiful nails and healthy cuticles. Over the last months I had the chance to test out a new to me nail care brand that is certainly familiar to many of you. The lovely people over at Rouge Boutique were kind enough to send a package with lots of Trind goodies. Trind Cosmetics is a Dutch brand that focuses on hand- and nail care, but also offers nail polish and manicure products. These are the goodies that I got to test out.

Monday Blues: Subtle Blue Gradient

Hello my lovelies! It's a sunny and very hot Monday in my neck of the woods. Frankly, I don't mind that the week has started, but that's probably because I love my job. I'm also wearing some gorgeous blue nails but that's a story for the next Monday Blues post. The manicure I'm showing you today is from a couple of weeks ago, when I got inspired by HannahRoxNails' tutorial to create a light blue and white gradient. I really wanted to get some light blue acrylic paint for this but couldn't find any at the local craft store so I mixed white with some darker blue acrylic paint and created the light blue that I used to create this gradient.

China Glaze Feel the Breeze

Hello my lovelies! It's Saturday and that means it's time for some rest & relaxation. It also means that I finally have time to do some blogging. Today I realized that I have a ton of manicures that I haven't shown you, so I really need to get my act together and write some posts. I'm starting with a very summery polish from the 2014 Off Shore collection from China Glaze. I have to admit that this is a color I don't normally wear, but I didn't have anything similar in my collection and I needed something different so it fell into my cart. I wore it with a holographic glitter accent nail just to make it more interesting and more me.

Monday Blues: Blue Camouflage

Hello my lovelies! After a fun weekend, it's Monday again. I can't say that I was very happy when I woke up  this morning but the day went pretty well so I can't complain. There's also a manicure that I want to show you and that I'm very excited about. The inspiration came from a pretty unusual place, namely my bikini. I've had this bikini for a couple of years but didn't realize that the top was a perfect nail art inspiration until now. I'm very happy with how these nails came out.
