Monday Blues: Sally Hansen Pacific Blue

Hello my lovelies! I don't know about you, but I am really dreading going back to work today. Luckily, we have another public holiday coming this week so the weekend is gonna be longer, which is great. The blue I'm showing you today is really famous and I think there is no polish lover out there that hasn't heard of it. Of course that my blue obsession made it mandatory for me to own this eventually. I received it last week and had to try it out immediately. I also added a flower accent that matches the name.

China Glaze Petal to the Metal

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! It's a beautiful day outside and the sun is shining so I decided to show you a polish that is fun and summery. It comes from the City Flourish collection that came out this spring. I usually love spring collections, especially the China Glaze ones, but this year I've been discouraged by the bad reviews. I finally decided to get just one polish and test it out. I chose Petal to the Metal because it's a color that I didn't have in my collection. I wasn't disappointed at all.

Orly Harmonious Mess and Pretty Ugly

Hello my lovelies! It's Friday and I'm enjoying my last days of vacation. It's back to work from Monday so I'm trying to get as much rest as possible this weekend. I have two Orly polishes from the Summer 2013 Mash Up collection to show you today. These were purchased in two separate hauls but I decided to show them in the same post since they are from the same collection. The colors are also great for this season and I enjoyed wearing them both. First up we have Harmonious Mess.

Tmart Nail Art and Manicure Product Review

Hello my lovelies! Today's post is a little longer because I have a couple of products to show you. I've been contacted by to review some of their stuff and naturally I had to focus on nails. They sent me a manicure kit and a pack of fimo canes. It took quite a while for them to show up at my doorstep but they finally did arrive last week so here they are. First off, let's take a look at the fimo canes. I immediately had to create some nail art using them and this is what came out.

Monday Blues: OPI Tiffany Case

Hello my lovelies! This Monday is a good one for me because I'm on holiday. I think a lot of you have today off as well, so you'll probably enjoy this day as much as I do. And to top it all off, I have a gorgeous blue polish to show you. Believe it or not, this is the first time I try one of the OPI Liquid Sand polishes. I've tried a lot of brands of textured polish but didn't have the chance to try the one that started it all. But now thanks to my friend Kinga who was kind enough to lend it to me I finally tried one and I'm impressed.

TPA Group Challenge: Make Your Own Nail Polish

Hello my lovelies! First off, I'd like to apologize for the lack of posts this week. I am officially on holiday now so I will have tons of free time. Be prepared for more posts next week! Today's post is all about creating your own nail polish. The TPA Group Challenge is coming to an end, which makes me really sad. I couldn't miss the last theme because I had this polish ready for a really long time. It's nothing complicated, just a homemade jelly polish that I created for jelly sandwiches. I first used it a few months back and then used it again with a different glitter this week. I have both manicures to show in this post.

Monday Blues: Golden Rose Galaxy 12

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday so it's time for some blue. This is the last of the Golden Rose polishes I had to show you and it's also the sparkliest of them all. The Galaxy line is a fairly new one from Golden Rose. It contains lots of glittery textured polishes in all kinds of color combinations. Of course I had to try the blue one as my very first. Here's how it looks.

Golden Rose Rich Color 44

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! It's been a Golden Rose week on the blog and it will continue with tomorrow's Monday Blues, but first I have a beautiful green to show you. It comes from the Rich Color collection, which may be my favorite Golden Rose collection because the quality of the polishes reminds me of high end brands. The only downside to this collection is the fact that the polishes don't have names, just numbers. So without further ado, here's number 44.

Golden Rose Holiday 82

Hello my lovelies! It's a lovely spring day over here and it's also time for me to show you a beautiful textured polish. I have a huge collection of this type of polishes in every color, but what I didn't have was a gold one. Not anymore though because this beauty came into my life and completed my collection. It comes from the Holiday line from Golden Rose and looks like this.

Monday Blues: Waterfall Nails

Hello my lovelies! I know I say this every Monday, but this weekend went by too fast. At least I managed to do some nail art and I'm showing you the first look today. I finally decided to create a waterfall nail art because I really wanted to use some nail art polishes that I received from Golden Rose Romania. If you don't know what a waterfall mani is, you should check out this tutorial by The Nailasaurus, who is also the inventor of this look. I'm not very sure if my waterfall nails look like they should but I think it's ok for a first attempt.

TPA Group Challenge: Bling Bling Nails

Hello my lovelies! I know I have been a bad blogger this week and I apologize. I have to start scheduling my posts on Sunday because it seems I can't get anything done during the workweek. The TPA Group Challenge is back today with a very blingy theme. The manicure I'm showing you is a simple one but I think it fits the theme. Last week I did a water marble and I think that will make up for today's more simple look.

March favorites and haul

Hello my lovelies! It's April and the weather is gorgeous. March wasn't bad either, at least in my neck of the woods. Unfortunately, the good weather didn't help with my inspiration last month and I didn't do a lot of nail art. At least I had enough to make a collage that I'm proud of. So here it is.
