Monday Blues: Bronze and Blue

Hello my lovelies! I think this is the latest I've ever posted my Monday Blues post. It's been a crazy crazy Monday for me but all in all it was a good day. The manicure I'm showing you in this post is a pretty unusual one for me. The idea started from some pretty awesome studs that the Born Pretty Store kindly sent for review. I tried to match the design of the studs with a saran wrap manicure and this is what came out.

China Glaze Lotus Begin

Hello my lovelies! It's been ages since my last post but this time I have a reason. I had an exam yesterday so I spent this week (and most of last week) studying. It went well and you have no idea how happy I am that I'm finally free. I feel like I haven't done proper nail art or nail blogging in a long while. What I did do last weekend is create a very fun look using a bright shade from the City Flourish collection from China Glaze. I also added some neon studs from the Born Pretty Store and this is the final result.

Monday Blues: Summer Dreaming

Hello my lovelies! Where did the weekend go? I swear I have no idea where mine went and I miss it a lot. So Saturday was the first day of summer, which means that it's officially beach season. I don't know about you but I very much need a vacation. Unfortunately, I still have a month to go until I get one, so I decided to paint the sea on my nails. I wore this manicure for several days last week and enjoyed it a lot.

Vampy Glitter Tips

Hello my lovelies! I am a bad blogger, I know. I haven't posted anything this week and I apologize for that. It's been a crazy one for me and I have an exam next week so there won't be a lot of blogging for me in the next days. I decided to schedule a post tonight and realized that I have a month old manicure that I haven't shown you yet. It's not much, but I liked it a lot back when I wore it and got a lot of compliments. It was actually the manicure that I chose to wear on the trip I went on at the end of last month, so it was on my nails for quite some time.

Monday Blues: Kiko 518

Hello my lovelies! It seems that I've made it a habit out of posting late on Mondays. I just didn't have the time to prepare the post yesterday because I was out all day. It was a fun weekend, which made it even harder to go to work today. To cheer us all up I have a gorgeous blue to show you. It's the last one of the Kiko shades that I added to my collection last month but believe me that it's just as good as the other ones.

Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: Letter G

Hello my lovelies! I couldn't wait for the weekend to be here so I could sleep in, yet I woke up pretty early because that's how my body is set from during the week. Does that happen to you? At least now that I'm awake I can write this post and show you a very colorful manicure that is perfect for summer. Today I'm taking part in the Alphabet Nail Art Challenge that I told you about last week and the letter of the day is G. Again I went with something pretty obvious because I chose to do a gradient. I also added some stamping to make it more interesting.

Kiko 497

Hello my lovelies! How is your week going? I'm well but I still can't wait for the weekend to come. Meanwhile I have another one of the new Kiko shades to show you. It's a polish that doesn't fit the season at all because it's rather dark and vampy. It's actually more of a fall shade in my opinion, but I frankly don't care because I love it. I enjoyed wearing it last week and can't wait to show it to you as well. So here we go.

Monday Blues: Sky Blue Water Marble

Hello my lovelies! Don't you just love a Monday that feels like a Sunday? It's warm, the sun is shining and there's a summer vibe in the air. Not to mention that I have today off and slept in, so I finally feel rested. I promised more nail art last week and here I am, keeping my promise. I don't know what got into me but I was in the mood to do a water marble this weekend. I chose some shades of blue so it would be appropriate for today's post. Here's what came out.

Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: Letter F

Hello my lovelies! It's Saturday! And beside it being the first day of a long weekend, it's also time for me to show you some nail art. You might have noticed that I haven't been doing much of that lately. Lack of time and inspiration have been the main reason. I'm very happy to let you know that my inspiration is back. Yesterday I did two different nail art looks so I already have posts ready for next week. But first let me tell you about the Alphabet Nail Art Challenge. This very fun challenge was started a few weeks ago by the lovely ladies in The Polish Addict group on Facebook. It's very easy: each week has a different letter and everyone gets to do some nail art with a theme that starts with that letter. Luckily, there are no rules about joining so you can join every week that you can. That's how I was able to join in at letter F. I created some flowers (no surprise there, really) using a technique that I've been meaning to try for a while.

OPI Solitaire and Designer...De Better!

Hello my lovelies! It's Friday and this weekend is very much expected by me, especially because it's a 3-day one since Monday is a holiday. Today's post is all about some OPI polishes that I got to try out through the courtesy of the lovely Kinga (if you haven't already, please go check out her blog cause you won't regret it). I don't have many OPI polishes in my collection and it's definitely fun to experiment with older collections and polishes that a lot of people raved about. The first OPI I'm gonna talk about comes from the Bond Girls Collection of Liquid Sand polishes and looks like this.

Kiko 532

Hello my lovelies! How are you today? I've had a rough start of the week but I'm feeling better now so I decided to keep my promise of blogging more. I also promised you swatches of the new Kiko shades that I received last week so that's what I'm going to show you. The polish I'm showing you today is a very sparkly one. My friend Kinga was curious to see this one and I had to make her wish come true by swatching it as soon as possible. So here it is!

Monday Blues: Kiko 525

Hello my lovelies! Today's post is coming later than usual because I'm not feeling very well. I haven't missed a Monday Blues in 2 years though, so I wasn't going to miss this one. The polish I'm showing you today is one of the 60 new Kiko shades that recently came out. It's sort of an unusual polish but I really like it. Here's what I'm talking about.
