One from the vaults.. When I still had long and healthy nails. I don't know what's wrong with my nails now, they just won't grow and split. 

Anyways, this is a mani from a year ago, one of my favorites. It's simple, but I just love how it looks

I used purple/violet for the base, but in the picture it looks more like blue, the black is acrylic paint and everything else is from KIKO cosmetics (I know, I mention it almost all of my posts.. I just like their coverage :D)

Flamenco Inspired

I've been living in southern Spain for over half a year now and this was one of the first manicures inspired by the flamenco dresses and flowers that the dancers sometimes wore in their hair

I rushed it with top coat, which sadly smudged the dots.

Polishes used:
Purple - From Naughty or Nice set by Essence
White - White Hot Love by Rimmel
Green - Mint Milk by KIKO

Mint & Gold

After moving I only took with me one roll of nail tape.. And then I completely forgot about it. Till one day when I went trough my drawers and spotted it. So of course, I needed to use it right away.

(My previous post that I also used nail tape Hello Autumn was made more than a year ago)

 Polishes used:
Mint - Mint Milk by KIKO (who can tell that this is one of my favorite polishes :D)
Gold - From Primark PS line (it's more foil-y or shimmer than a real gold, but nevertheless, I like it)

My recent favorite purchase has been Essence's Nail Art Tattoo Pen. I bought it and started thinking all the complicated things that I could do with it... And then I came home and did this.
Not complicated at all, but pretty :)

The only bad thing was that I guess I put the top coat on too quickly because it smudged the black

Polishes used:
Blue - It was a set of Daisy Nails from Primark (it came with a white and yellow nail art polishes)
White - White Hot Love by Rimmel
Silver - Holographic by GOSH
Silver glitter - One of three polishes from the set Got My List? by Essence
Black - Nail Art Tattoo Pen

Splattering around

Sometimes it's just nice to be messy and splatter the paint arond 

Polishes used:
Blue - Shocking Seas by Maybelline
Gold - No29 Dore Orfevre by Yves Saint Laurent

This splatter is done using a straw dipped in nail polish and then I blew in it. Messy.. But I love the result

Also, thank you all for the tips on gradients, well wishes for my new job and most of all - welcome my new followers :)
