May favorites and haul

Hello my lovelies! It's the last day of the month, which means it's time for another recap. What can I say about May? It's been a crazy busy month and blogging hasn't been a priority. I've reverted to my old habit of keeping a manicure 3 or even 4-5 days. That's why I haven't had that much to show you. The only nail art I've done was some very simple stamping. I've also been obsessed with jelly sandwiches, so the favorite manicures I've chosen are a mix of these two. Let's take a look!

Kiko 524

Hello my lovelies! I don't know about you, but it's been a crazy week for me so far. Work has been hectic and made me really tired and crabby when I got home. Luckily, I have a bunch of new Kiko polishes to play with. The brand recently came out with 60 new colors in their amazing permanent line. I'm a big fan of these nail polishes and I was happy to be able to pick out a few so a friend could bring them to me. These shades are very new, so there aren't many swatches online. I immediately started swatching the ones I have so I could show them to you all. The first one is an amazing multicolored shimmer polish that is perfect for the vampy polish lovers.

Monday Blues: Nails Inc Sweets Way

Hello my lovelies! I'm back from my trip and really glad to be home. I don't even mind that it's Monday today. As usual I have something blue to cheer us all up. The polish I'm showing you today comes from the Sprinkles collection from Nails Inc. It's not entirely blue but there's a lot of blue glitter in it so I think it still fits the theme. There's actually another polish in this collection that is entirely blue. I, however, prefer this one because it has a delicate pastel feel to it that is just lovely. Here's how it looks.

Milky Jelly Sandwich

Hello my lovelies! I'm still away and this is another scheduled post that will hopefully go up when it's supposed to. If you haven't already noticed, one of my biggest obsessions as of late are jelly sandwiches. They are so easy to create and give such a nice look to the nails! The sandwich I'm showing you today was created with the help of a couple of nude polishes and a very interesting glitter. Here's what I'm talking about.

Models Own Swan and Banana Split

Hello my lovelies! I'm currently out of town for a conference but I decided to schedule a couple of posts in advance so I wouldn't be a bad blogger again. Today's post is about two lovely Models Own polishes. I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of this brand because their polishes are not 3free. I still get tempted sometimes though and these two came home to me in one of my latest Asos hauls. The first one I'm gonna show you is one of the speckled polishes that came out this spring. I already had access to a similar collection from Flormar, but none of the shades in that collection is as beautiful as this purple.

Monday Blues: Navy Swirls

Hello my lovelies! I swear that this Monday caught me totally off guard and I forgot to schedule this post. So here I am, finally writing it after a busy day at work. Better late than never, that's what I always say. Today's manicure is some simple stamping over a gorgeous color. From all the blues in the world, navy is my favorite shade and I have quite a few different ones in my collection. To others they might all look the same, but to me they are all special. One that I haven't revisited in a long time is China Glaze Man Hunt, a polish I showed as a Monday Blue almost two years ago. I'm sure you won't mind looking at it again, especially because I added a little something extra to make it more interesting.

Born Pretty Store QA61 Stamping Plate Review

Hello my lovelies! I've been a bad blogger again this week. I'm really trying to concentrate on writing a post but somehow the day goes by and I realize it's late and I haven't written a thing. That's why it took me so long to show you the last of the Born Pretty Store products that I got sent the last time. It's no surprise that I chose a stamping plate, since I love stamping and always enjoy new patterns. The plate I'm showing you today has a lot of flowery images on it. It looks like this.

Monday Blues: Royal Sandwich and Born Pretty Store Nail Shields

Hello my lovelies! The best thing about Mondays is the Monday Blues post and this week's is no exception. I have a yummy jelly sandwich to show you, plus something extra on top. Some of you might remember that less than a year ago I got my hands on a bottle (or two) of the famous blue jelly that is Revlon Royal. I did a Monday Blues post back then with swatches and a sandwich, but looking back on the result it wasn't the greatest there could be. That's because I used some large round glitters that didn't quite fit in the sandwich. So considering it's been a while since that post, I decided to revisit it and hope you won't mind to look at another gorgeous jelly sandwich. If you wish to see the original post you can find it here.

Born Pretty Store Milky Glitter Nail Polish Set Review

Hello my lovelies! It's Friday and I haven't posted anything this week except for the Monday Blues post. I'm gonna try to make it up to you today by showing you a set of 4 lovely polishes that are perfect for spring. They come from the Born Pretty Store, which means that they are really affordable, even though they look like indie polishes. Here's what I'm talking about.

Monday Blues: Barry M Huckleberry

Hello my lovelies! It's the first Monday in May and I have a spring blue to show you. It's one of the new Gelly Hi-Shine colors that Barry M recently came up with. I personally love this collection so I was excited to try some new shades. After reading the great reviews online I had to order a couple of the new colors. This is the first one I try and I'm extremely happy with it.

China Glaze Creative Fantasy

Hello my lovelies! It's Saturday, which means most people are relaxing today. We had an extended weekend in my country so I've already had a lot of fun in the last days. That's why blogging has been sort of on the back burner this week. Hopefully I'll be a better blogger next week because there sure is a lot that I wanna show you. Today's post is all about a hidden gem. This polish comes from the Cirque du Soleil collection and is a great jelly. Naturally, I had to create a jelly sandwich using it.

April favorites and haul

Hello my lovelies! We're already one day into May so it was high time for me to post a recap of last month. April hasn't been a great month in terms of nail art for me. I've been wearing a lot of plain manicures and even when I did do nail art it was quite simple. I managed to gather 4 favorite manicures for you but they are not my finest work, I must admit it. I hope May will bring more patience my way.
