Layla Thermo Effect No. 2 and Bubbly Effect Black Forest

Hello my lovelies! Long time no posts, right? At least the weekend is coming and I'm gonna have more free time for blogging. Today is Halloween and I really wanted to get a themed manicure up on the blog, but I didn't have any inspiration for nail art. Instead I did a little layering that reminded me of zombie nails. I started with a thermal polish that I got to borrow from my friend Kinga.

Monday Blues: & Other Stories Blunt Grey

Hello my lovelies! Today's Monday Blues post comes even later than usual because I'm having some issues with my computer and I've been trying to fix them ever since I came back from work. Other than that, today was a pretty good day. It's really cold outside but at least it's sunny. The polish I'm showing you today is perfect for the season and it's right up my alley. Don't be fooled by its name. I think there is a lot of blue in this one and nobody can deny that. Take a look!

Sephora Amethyst Stiletto

Hello my lovelies! First off, let me just apologize for the thousandth time for the lack of posts lately. I've been very busy and on top of everything I also got a cold. It's nothing serious but it's an excuse to sleep more and do less blogging. I have a ton of manicures to show you so I hope to get to writing those posts soon. I will start with an easy and quick one where I talk about a nail polish I got to try a few weeks ago. My good friend Kinga lent it to me and assured me it was awesome. Turns out she was right as always.

Monday Blues: China Glaze Dorothy Who?

Hello my lovelies! It's the first time in a long time when I really resent the fact that it's Monday today. I had to work on Saturday and didn't get a lot of sleep. So now I can't wait to go to bed. Hopefully this blue is gonna make us all feel better and make this day go by faster. It's one of the classic China Glaze shades that I had to have because I'm a big fan of this brand. I think everybody has heard of this polish so it needs no special introduction.

China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise

Hello my lovelies! It's Thursday, which means the weekend is getting closer. Unfortunately I have to work for half of this weekend so I'm really looking forward to Sunday when I will finally be able to relax. Today's post is all about a summery polish that I got to wear in October. Frankly, I've always been curious about this polish but I thought I had something similar in my collection. I got to try it through the courtesy of my friend Kinga and found out how special it is.

Monday Blues: Kiko 520

Hello my lovelies! Can you believe it's Monday again? I honestly don't know how but time is literally flying by. I guess that always happens when you enjoy your life. I can't complain about this day either, it's been a pretty decent Monday. The polish I'm showing you today is not a very spectacular one but I think it's perfect for fall. I'm a big fan of metallic shades during the cold season and even more so if they're also blue. This particular one is great!

Bizarre Marble

Hello my lovelies! It's been a really busy week for me, hence the lack of posts. I would like to apologize for that. My plan is to create a 3 post/week schedule and write some posts in advance so there's no danger of not posting because of the lack of time. I just have to figure out the days for those posts (besides Monday, of course). I'll keep you posted on that! Meanwhile I have a really fun manicure to show you today. I've used an image from a plate that has been in my possession for years and years, without me figuring out that it looks like a fake water marble. I've used some of the images on this plate but not this one. After I saw it on my friend Kinga's nails, I had to recreate the look. Of course I used different colors and her manicure is a lot better than mine, so make sure you check it out (click here).

Monday Blues: Yes Love G18-3

Hello my lovelies! It's the first Monday in October and even though I'm not that happy with summer being over, I try to console myself with the fact that my birthday is in less than 2 months. I must admit that today wasn't such a bad day and the polish I'm gonna show you is gonna make it even better. It comes from a brand I don't know much about and I didn't find a lot of info online either. I'll just take it as it is and thank my good friend Kinga for bringing it to me from her vacation. It's truly a beautiful polish!

Big Nails and a Jelly Sandwich

Hello my lovelies! As you are reading this, I am away for a conference again. I scheduled this post to keep you entertained while I'm gone. You are probably wondering about the crazy title of this post. I got inspired by the name of the polish I've used for this manicure, even though my nails aren't that big. They are still pretty long in these pictures compared to what I usually wear so I guess they are my version of big nails. Without further ado, here is the manicure.
