I want to introduce you to my favorite purple/violet nail polish - Lilac from KIKO Cosmetics

In the picture there is more blue-tint to it than in real life, where it looks lighter.. Well, just like the name says - it looks lilac.

French Leopard

Well there is french tip.. and there is leopard pattern.. French Leopard seems like an appropriate title in my opinion :)

Everything is done freehand

I'm gonna be honest.. I really don't remember which polishes I used. It was done a long time ago, and since then sadly I have been parted with my beloved drawer full of polishes. It was very sheer nude, light blue, black and silver.. But it's the pattern that counts, right?

It's Technically Still Summer!

And where I am, it's gonna stay warm for a while, so pastel colors are still suitable.

Pink - Essence Cinderella collection color Sing, Sweet Nightingale
Yellow - Claire's shade Lovely
Green - KIKO Mint Milk

And I bought the stamping plate from a tiny tiny bazar type of shop in Sevilla.

Stripy Start

Hello and welcome to Sandra's Showcase!

My name is Sandra and I am addicted to nail polish.

I used to be an avid blogger about two-three years ago, but since my skills and nail art has changed, I decided not to continue with my previous blog and start a new one instead.

I sincerely hope that this blog will continue to grow and improve and the followers that I had on my previous one, at least some will follow my new attempts in nail art here.

And with that short introduction, let's get this party started! And what's the better way than to start off with some bright colors and stripes.

Polishes used:
White - 3 coats of Maybelline Color Show Porcelain Party
Yellow - 1 coat of Mereneid yellow nail polish
Black stripes - 2 coats of H&M Manhunter
