Starrily Custom Polish - Hup Holland Hup!

Hello lovelies!

Today I have a special post: contacted me about if I would be interested in designing a nail polish, to introduce a new feature of her webshop: Create Your Own (5-Free!) Nail Polish! Well as you might probably expect, I did not have to think twice! I did however have to think a lot about WHAT I wanted to design. I had too many ideas, TOO MANY! Then I decided that instead of colours, I wanted to design for an occasion. And with the upcoming World Cup Football, I had my occasion right there. So I hereby present: "Hup, Holland, Hup!" And Starrily is giving away one bottle to one of my followers, so to enter this INTERNATIONAL giveaway, fill in the rafflecopter below!

Friends On Friday - Marble & Mermaid

Hello lovelies!

A quicky post today with two manis for friends. The first one was requested by her, as she saw it on another blog and thought it was cool. I did my best to recreate it:

Twin Blog Post - May Flowers

Hello lovelies!

Time for this month's Twin Nails Collaboration post! We were odd-numbered, so we became a triplet! How fun :D Meet my triplet friends Nail Art Novice & The Dalai Lama's Nails :) This month's theme is flowers and we were assigned with roses. Since we'd done many rose manis already, we decided we'd wanna do them somewhat differently, so we went with a black-white-neon colour scheme. This is what I came up with:

Let It Glitter - Hup Holland Hup!

Hello lovelies,

Happy ManiMonday! Today I have a Dutch 5-free indie brand on the blog: Let It Glitter.  In anticipation of the World Championships of Football (the soccer kind), she designed an orange glitter bomb appropriately called "Hup, Holland, Hup!", which are the words that we, Dutchies, sing to cheer on our team. We tell the team not to leave the lion standing in his shirt. Yes this all makes perfect sense, I assure you. Anyways, to the glitter!

Neon & Holo - Partners in Crime

Hello lovelies!
So yeah, my nails broke a little. So instead of swatching the last pretty, I decided to do some nail art over my previous mani of Celestial Cosmetics "Opie". This glorious silver holo was somehow screaming NEON to me, so I decided to oblige my nails:

Celestial Cosmetics "Opie"

Hello lovelies!

Today the second of the prizes I won in Ladybird Lacquer's Celestial Cosmetics giveaway! Yesterday I showed you an in-your-face green holo. Today we have a silver holo called Opie, magnificent in its simplicity:
This is three coats plus top coat. At the end of the day the Sun finally shone, so I got to take some quick pics! It's so pretty <3

This is what it looks like in plain daylight, it is like a super white silver. But then with sunlight, or certain artificial light...

Celestial Cosmetics "T's in a Tizz"

Hello lovelies!

Today a swatch of a polish I won in the Instagram giveaway hosted by Ladybird Lacquer and sponsored by Celestial Cosmetics! I got to choose 3 pretties and so I acquired my first holos! The first one is excellently green and sparkly, it's called T's in a Tizz.

Oh my nails looked like those of a glamourous witch, totally fabulous! This photo is taken with flash, since the clouds were omnipresent here. And typing had become very hard and since that's what I do for a living, I decided to drastically shorten them. And the next day, the Sun came out!

Ohhhhhhhhhh look at that, isn't it amazing?! I know. This is two easy coats, but perhaps you'd like 3 if your nails are very long. Look at that holo....
And this is what it looks like in medium sunlight:
So pretty, huh?! I got two more coming up, so stay tuned this week ;)
