Proud Peacock

Hello my lovelies! It's the last day of January and it has been a great month for me. I didn't buy any polish this month so there's no haul post to do, but I thought I should show you some nail art that I made last weekend and enjoyed a lot. This was a spontaneous manicure, where you don't have any idea of what you wanna do when you start. I only knew that I wanted to do a gradient. Then I chose the colors and only after finishing the gradient did I pick the stamping plate and the whole theme of the manicure. Luckily, the result was great so I would call this a spontaneous success.

Monday Blues: Textured Chevrons

Hello my lovelies! It's the last Monday of January and boy, what a great month it has been! I can't wait for spring to be here to get rid of the cold, but it hasn't been particularly cold in the last weeks so I can't really complain. As I'm writing this it's still Sunday, because Monday will be a pretty busy day so I wanted to get a head start on my post. Today's manicure is a recreation of an old favorite of mine but with different shades. Enjoy!

Manhattan Green & Bronx

Hello my lovelies! The week is almost over and the sun is shining so I'm in a springy mood today. I decided to write a short post and show you some swatches that have been sitting on my computer for a while. The color isn't springy at all, in fact it's perfect for fall and winter. It isn't something I normally buy or wear, but I got it as a gift so I had to try it. I always say that receiving polish from people makes you try out colors you wouldn't normally wear. This is what happened with this polish and I ended up liking it.

Monday Blues: ILNP Birefringence (H)

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday. What else can I say? I don't know about you, but for me this day is particularly busy. I do love my job and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, so it's all good. But enough about that, let's talk about nail polish. I have a very special one to show you today, one that I've been staring at for over two days. It was a birthday gift from a very special friend of mine. And what a gift it is!

Essence Rock My World

Hello my lovelies! I feel like I say this every week, but I have no idea where the time went. It was a busy one but a great one at the same time so I can't complain. Today's post is a swatch of a pretty unusual polish. The last posts have been about some kind of nail art, so it was time for a nice swatch. After all, I really love to just talk about polish. Let's see what we're looking at today, shall we?

Monday Blues: Blue Stars

Hello my lovelies! It's late in the afternoon on a Monday and I'm feeling pretty tired. But today was a great day so I can't complain because I love my job. I'm also feeling better and happy to announce that I didn't get the flu after all. So all is good. Today I'm bringing you another winter inspired blue manicure. Take a look!

Golden Enchantment

Hello my lovelies! I woke up this morning feeling pretty lousy, so I probably have a flu coming my way. I'm trying to binge on vitamin C so it goes away before it even arrives. I know I've been a really bad blogger this week but it was very busy again. In an attempt to make up for it there's a manicure coming your way that is very pretty and sparkly. This is from over a month ago so it was high time for me to show it to you. Here it is!

Monday Blues: Picture Polish Ruby Blou

Hello my lovelies! Happy new year and welcome to the Monday Blues of 2015! It's my pleasure to present this year's event. Hopefully many bloggers will join me every Monday so we can post lots of blue manicures together. It's the first Monday Blues of the year so it must be a festive one. I decided to make my manicure a little festive and glitter is the best way to do it. This was my New Year's Eve manicure so it's a really fresh one. Here we go!

A-england Reciprocal Gradient

Hello my lovelies! Happy new year! I really hope that 2015 will bring you everything you want and more! It's the second day of the year and I finally managed to sit down and write a post. I really wanted to blog yesterday but I guess laying in bed and watching movies was all I managed to do. Today, however, I have an interesting manicure to show you. These were the nails that I wore to the Beauty Bloggers Meeting back in November. So you can see that it took me a lot to post them. But they're up now so take a look!
