Essence Life Is A Freeride

Hello my lovelies! The theme for today's untried challenge was "cool", which is perfect for me because most of the polishes I use are in the cool spectrum. This particular one comes from the Snow Jam collection from Essence and it's the only one in this collection that I haven't shown you yet. Of course in the meantime this collection got pretty hard to find but I hope you will still enjoy the beautiful polish.

Monday Blues: Avon Blue Water Lilies

Hello my lovelies! Another weekend has passed and I'm back with a beautiful blue. Today is actually a public holiday in my country but I have an exam tomorrow so I'm gonna be studying anyway. Hope at least some of my readers will be having fun. The polish I'm showing you today is my second Avon purchase of the month. I couldn't resist this shimmery blue when I saw it in the brochure so I had to have it.

Avon Sprightly Mint

Hello lovelies! I'm sorry I haven't been posting much this week. I'm very busy and stressed out because of school stuff right now. When I do have a bit of time I'm out of inspiration and find it so hard to start typing up a post. I will probably keep it at about 3 posts per week for the next few weeks, hope you will understand. The polish I'm showing you today is a new Avon shade and it's also my first ever polish from the Speed Dry line.

Catrice The GlamoureX Factor

Hello lovelies! How is your week going along? I'm starting with exams tomorrow so wish me luck! As usual, on Wednesdays I do a post from the untried challenge. This week's theme is "warm", the sort of color I never wear because my skin tone doesn't allow it. I decided to go with a gold polish because there's nothing warmer than gold, right?

Monday Blues: Barry M Indigo

Hello my lovelies! Did you ever do a manicure that looked perfect on your nails and then translated awfully into fotos? If you're a nail blogger, this probably occurred at least once or twice. I'm used to this happen to me when it comes to makeup, but I get so frustrated when it's with nails. The manicure I'm showing for today's Monday Blues is just like that.

Studs and flowers

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! The sun is shining and it's crazy hot in my neck of the woods, too bad I only have studying scheduled for today. The nails I want to show you are very appropriate for this weather. I guess you've seen by now that I'm obsessed with studs. Well, I hope you're not too tired of them because there's more coming your way.

Born Pretty Store Nail Studs Review

Hello my lovelies! Excited about the weekend? It's mostly gonna be just work for me this week, but I'm throwing in some fun cause there's a beauty expo in town. Hope I don't spend too much! Today I want to talk to you about studs. You probably know by now that I'm a big fan of studs on the nails. I've shown you a stud wheel from Born Pretty Store before (review here), so this time I'm showing you the other stud wheel they have available in the store. I had to have these too!

Hello lovelies! Today I have something a little different for you. I want to show you these awesome owl earrings from the Born Pretty Store. Besides nail art supplies, they also sell trendy jewelry and they were kind enough to send me these earrings* as a gift.

Born Pretty Store Round Glequins Review

Hello lovelies! This week is turning out to be very busy for me. On top of school related stuff, I've had a couple of challenge posts to complete and now it's time for some nail art product reviews. I've talked about glequins before (click here to see the post, there's also a video tutorial included) and I know everyone enjoys them. We are all used to the hexagonal shape they have, but what if they were round? I was very excited to find some round ones on the Born Pretty Store website and naturally I had to try them out.

MUA Stormy Skies

Hello my lovelies! Quick post today to show you another polish from the untried challenge. The one we had to use today was a neutral one, which was hard since I'm not a big fan of neutrals because I love to have color on my nails. My favorite neutrals are grey polishes, but I didn't have any untried ones, so instead I chose this shimmery MUA polish.

Polish Days: To Boldly Go

Hello my lovelies! I hope you are doing better than me today. I'm overly stressed with graduation stuff and exams coming up, so blogging is pretty hard since I can't really concentrate on anything. Another month went by and the time has come for another Polish Days event. I wouldn't miss it for the world! This month's theme is sci-fi and space related, so I decided to go exactly where the name takes me. "To boldly go where no man has gone before": Star Trek.

Monday Blues: Zoya Song

Hello lovelies! It's Monday and it's supposed to be rainy today, so I'd rather stay in bed. But we all know that's impossible. At least I have a pretty blue to show you! The one from today didn't match my expectations, but I still like it nonetheless.

Born Pretty Store Glow in the Dark Nail Polish Review

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! I've got something fun to show you today. I love nail polish in general, but if you can play with it it's even better. Of course glow in the dark polish sounds great. The Born Pretty Store has tons of fun colors, so I chose this turquoise one to try out.

Where In The World Challenge: Korea

Hello my lovelies! First of all, please excuse me for the lack of posts in the last days. I've had a rough week and even though I have tons of stuff to show you, I wasn't in the mood to write a blog post. Luckily, everything gets better when the weekend comes, so here I am finally with this post. Usually on Saturdays I try to keep up with the Where In The World Challenge. I'm happy that I've been on track with this one in the last weeks. Today we are traveling to Korea with this colorful manicure.

Colorful Stripes

Hello lovelies! I hope your day is full of sun! Over here it's raining like it's fall and I have no idea where summer went. Oh well. Today's post comes from the untried challenge I started a few weeks ago. The theme for today was "Three Colors" and here's what I came up with.

Monday Blues: Deborah Positano Escape

Hello lovely people! I hope this Monday isn't making you too grumpy. As I'm writing this it's still Sunday night and I've spent my afternoon in bed watching movies. At least this way I will get through Monday easier, hopefully. I wanted to swatch an amazing blue for this Monday Blues, but I ended up doing a mani I really love and don't want to take off. Luckily, I had something in my vault. It's good to enjoy a simple blue creme from time to time, right?

Modern art is hard!

Hello lovelies and happy Sunday! Today I want to share a splatter adventure with you. As you can see from my blog banner, I really love this pattern. I have tried this type of nail art only once before and it wasn't easy at all. I used the straw method back then and swore I would never attempt it again. But there is another way to do a splatter manicure and I decided to try it last week. A good tutorial for this splatter method can be found here. I followed the directions and ended up with the following result.

Where In The World Challenge: Ukraine

Hello my lovelies! It's Saturday and I swear I have no idea where this week went. We've had some graduation related celebrations this week and it was fun. Unfortunately, it's back to classes on Monday. Today I have a new country to visit. Ukraine was the next country on my list and so I did something traditional.
