Nails: My Smexy Leopardo

Staying a little bit on the animal print, here's another quickie with the new nail polishes.
This time it's an all over leopard print which I named "My Smexy Leopardo".


The goldy hue I used as a base color for the leopard nails is number 15 from a cheap Chinese brand Shengji. On the ring finger I used Blue Marlin from Slick.
Up until now I’m enjoying both polishes to the max. The consistency of the Shengji is pretty watery but it does cover the nail in two quick coats. The Slick is very thick and on the actual nail look I only used one coat.
The leopard print was achieved by dotting the Blue Marlin randomly on the nails and accentuating them with Essie's Little Brown Dress (not a new polish)

And the results? Classy and shmexy...

Well, This was it for today lovebugs. Hope you loved the look

Nails: "Zebra's ready to Party"

So today its just going to be a really short post (as short as possible); I intended to fill it with loads of pics, but...a technical difficulty happened and there's a slight change of plans.

So, ok here's the thing

Like about two weeks ago I bought a handful of new polishes. These were both brands I don't have yet but I still bought them because 1. I was curious and 2. I needed to pamper myself for a while. And Last Saturday...well...you guessed it right, bought 4 more. (No, I'm not an addict)

Divided the first purchase in three different nail looks but lost the pictures of the previous two somehow when I changed my phone. (Bummer, I know...). So I decided to do quick series of these newbies. Each time one nail look and my personal review of the brand. Shall we?

First look "Zebra'S ready to Party" , achieved with Funky Yellow from Kleancolor(the new polish) and a simple black polish.

For being a neon hue I think the lacquer is quite opaque. With two tin coats I had it covered.
To my opinion the consistency could have been more shiny. I HAD to use topcoat to give it more live.
But overall I'm super content with the results; it's bright, cute, easy application and dries pretty fast. Am ready to try the other Kleancolor polishes I bought.
(Print simply achieved with a cheap nail stamp I bought last year) :P

Nails: La-la-lavender

I promised some of you I'd post yesterday...
But my lazy butt got the best of me.
But here it is...my new nail art.

I call it "La-la-lavender". And it's quite simple. (Believe me...much simpler that it actually might look.)
I painted the ring finger and the middle finger first in a solid white color. And for the rest of the fingers I chose Silky Purple from Jordana.
Once the white was totally dried I used an old ballpoint pen to add five big dots in a circle. And use a toothpick to drag a line in each dot unto the center of the circle. For the big flowers I used Purple Glam from Jordana.
Next I used a scissor to cut the other end of the toothpick and used it in the same sequence to create smaller flowers in Nail
'd it from Sally Hansen.
Almost done!!! Use a clean toothpick dipped in green polish to draw fine lines that look like the stems from these flowers... I used Limestone frome Sally Hansen.
And voila...my "La-la-lavender" nails. Of course you can use any color combination you like. Peach, pink, red, orange...you name it!
Hope you enjoyed...
Buh-Bye, lovebugs.

Nails: Felt like Star Trek

Hey Guys...
Lately I’ve been messing with the layout of the blog. So if you noticed, the changes might have been annoying. But I’m far not satisfied...so bear with me a while longer.

This week I decided to try out another look from Cutepolish, the Easy Glaxy Nail Art.
You know how some people make some things seem sooooo easy? Well she’s one of those. Click on the name and watch for yourselves. Sigh...
In my case I tried a dark blue polish instead of the black (Used Blue Lagoon from L.A. Colors). In person it does look darker thou...the camera flash made it look lighter than it really was). And instead of cutting a small piece of a triangular sponge to sponge the nebula, I used small eye-shadow applicators. (hihihi, I sorta like to try out my own things sometimes)
These were the results. Absolutely not as galaxy-perfect as the original but...I think it was totally wearable!

Gonna keep trying to fine-tune it....sure! Lol

In the mean time...this was it for today.

Have an awesome weekend, lovebugs!

Nails: In Royal Occassion

Here's another quickie...

So tomorrow is Queen's Day. Which is a national holiday celebrated throughout the Dutch Kingdom (actually celebrating the birthday of the queen...not Beatrix, Juliana; the previous one). And since Curacao (my little beautiful island) is part of the Dutch Kingdom, we celebrate too.
Tomorrow is going to be the last Queens Day celebration for now. Since queen Beatrix has announced that on April 30th of this year she will abdicate and her son, Willem-Alexander will be inaugurated as king of the Dutch Kingdom.

Well, for as unpatriotic as I can be, I decided to do something on my nails for the last Queen's Day anyways.
Using the colors that are used during this celebration...
ORANGE (used wide-ranged representing the Dutch royal dynasty "House of Orange") and the color of the Dutch flag RED, WHITE and BLUE.

Yada yada yada...enough history lesson. This is the super quick nail art I ended up with...
Orange and white bases with red and blue accents...(with some gold glitters on the pinky)

There, I hope you liked it.

Have you done anything crazy with your nails for Queen's day? Let me know!
In the mean time, I've already thought about my next nail art. Got a couple of days off, so you'll probably hear from me soon again (I'm gonna do my best...really)
