Monday Blues: China Glaze Bahamian Escape

Hello my lovelies! I don't know about you but this daylight saving time thing has totally messed me up. So much that I completely forgot to schedule this post yesterday. So here it is, later than usual. It's the last day in March and spring is in full swing, which means bright happy colors are in order. The blue I'm showing you today is perfect for spring and summer. Check it out!

TPA Group Challenge: Tutti Frutti

Hello lovelies and happy weekend! I've slept 3 extra hours this morning so this must be a very good day. Another reason why this is a great weekend is the fact that I finally managed to do some advanced nail art. It's been many weeks since I last participated in the TPA Group Challenge. I felt really uninspired but now I'm back! Today's theme was "tutti frutti", so naturally everyone did fruity nail art. I, however, chose to interpret this theme differently. Keep reading to see the explanation.

Avon Soft Violet

Hello my lovelies! I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of matte polishes. I used to wear them a lot in the past and my favorite ones were the suede ones. I love the velvety look on my nails! A while ago I bought two Avon suede polishes and while I did show you Blue Royale, the other one was still in my untrieds. I finally got around to trying it and thought I would share in case this is still available to you.

Monday Blues: Kiko 424 and 839

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday so a dose of blue is mandatory to make the day bearable. And because I'm really generous it's gonna be a double one today. I've got two blue polishes from Kiko to show you. The first one is unfortunately not available anymore because it was part of a limited edition collection called Celebration. It's still a beauty and deserves to be admired. This polish was a gift from the lovely Chiro so I'd like to thank her for sending it to me.

KBShimmer Snow Flaking Way

Hello my lovelies! It's the weekend! Can you believe another week has gone by? I sure can't. It's been a pretty crazy one because I've been tired and had a lot to do at work. I'm so glad that I can finally relax and enjoy the gorgeous weather we've been having. Winter is definitely gone where I live but it's probably still winter somewhere in the world. There's one KBShimmer polish from my recent haul that I haven't shown you and it's the one with snowflake glitter. I hope you don't mind to take a look although spring is in full swing.

Textured Gradient

Hello my lovelies! I'm not in the mood for talking much today but I wanted to show you this manicure I did last week because it's been a while since I posted some nail art on the blog. I've been seeing a lot of textured gradient manicures around lately and my friend Kinga went on and on about how easy they were to create. She told me that gradient polishes are easier to blend and that's why you get a perfect gradient in no time. I finally decided to give it a go and here's the result.

Monday Blues: China Glaze For Audrey

Hello my lovelies! I can't believe it's Monday again. I swear this happens to me every week but I needed to say it. The weekends are far too short for my liking. Anyway, it's time for some blue nails like every Monday. This week I have a classic polish for you. I can't believe it took me so long to get this because I think it's one of the most beautiful shades ever invented. And it definitely needs no introduction.

OPI You're Such a Budapest and possible dupes

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! I know I've been slacking in the nail art department but I've been really uninspired lately. Instead I have a lovely spring polish to show you today. I really hope that I can make it up to you with amazing nail art starting next week. When my friend Kinga and I decided to lend each other polishes to try out, it was really hard for me to choose. She has tons of OPI and Nails Inc goodies but since I'm in a spring color mood at the moment I chose something simple. This polish from last year's Euro Centrale collection is one of her favorites so I wanted to see if I had anything similar in my collection and if I absolutely needed this one in my life. She was also very kind and brought me a possible Flormar dupe as a gift. But we'll get to that one in a minute. First let's take a look at the main character of this post.

KBShimmer Green Hex and Glam

Hello my lovelies! It's Friday so it's time for some glitter! This is the third KBShimmer polish from my recent haul that I'm showing you. I've been wearing this beauty for the whole of last weekend and I absolutely loved it. It just doesn't get any sparklier than this!

Rimmel Moon Walking

Hello my lovelies! I know the textured polish trend is sort of old news, but I still love to wear one every once in a while. The one I'm showing you today comes from the Rimmel Space Dust collection and was a gift from my sister. I really like receiving polishes as gifts because it makes me try out stuff that I wouldn't necessarily choose myself. This polish didn't catch my attention in the shop but is such a great discovery. See for yourself!

Monday Blues: KBShimmer Will Yule Marry Me?

Hello my lovelies! It feels weird that I haven't written a post in so many days but I decided to take a little break this weekend so I could regain my inspiration. Given that it's Monday I couldn't stay away because I've been doing Monday Blues for almost two years now. I'm gonna continue showing you the polishes from my recent KBShimmer haul. If you haven't seen my review of Myth You Lots please refer to my previous post and I promise you won't be sorry. Today it's time for some glitter!

KBShimmer Myth You Lots

Hello my lovelies! Sorry for the lack of posts this week but the truth is I just couldn't bring myself to sit down and write one of these. I have plenty of manicures to show you but I guess I'm all worked up about spring being here and all. It's hard for me to focus but I'm gonna try to do it today because I have a spectacular polish to show you. I know I say this often, yet this time I really mean it. Hopefully you will understand me when you look at these pictures.

Monday Blues: Jelly Sandwich

Hello my lovelies! It's the first Monday of March and I'm so excited about spring! I think spring is my favorite season of all because I hate the cold and summer is just too hot so spring is perfect. I can even get over the fact that it's Monday because it's so sunny outside. The manicure I'm showing you today is a simple jelly sandwich. I haven't done one of these in a while and even though I used this jelly once before it was almost a year ago so I hope you won't mind.

February favorites and haul

Helo my lovelies and happy Sunday! As promised yesterday, today I'm showing you the recap of February. This month has been kinda slow in terms of posts and nail art for me. I couldn't find my inspiration. I also purchased very little nail polish because I got a lot of clothes instead. I just felt like giving a little makeover to my wardrobe. I did however get some amazing polishes which I will show below. But first let's look at my favorite manicures.

Spring Paisley

Hello lovelies! It's the first day of spring! I had something completely different planned for today. First there was the TPA Group challenge and the theme was reciprocal gradient. I tried to do one of those and failed miserably. Like seriously, it was a frustrating mess and I just couldn't try again because I was too upset. Then I also wanted to show you the February favorites but I decided to do something springy to celebrate the first day in March so the favorites post will be scheduled for tomorrow. The reciprocal gradient I tried to do yesterday was with pastels because I was in the mood for some spring colors. Instead I decided to do something more simple using lots of pastels and here's how it came out.
