OPI PURE LACQUER Nail Apps - Girly Glam

Today I'm showing you the new product from OPI, these are made out of real nail polish, the application was super easy and the best part is that you don't have to wait for your manicure to dry.
Combining base and color in one convenient product, Nail Apps adhere to nails in seconds and can be stretched for a perfect fit. Each pack contains 16 strips to ensure perfect sizing for all finger and toe nails.


How to use:

  1. Start with clean, dry nails.
  2. Remove top clear film; peel strip away from backing.
  3. Place strip on nail and smooth.
  4. Crease strip at nail edge; file off excess in a downward motion.
How to remove:
Remove with regular nail polish remover. 
(I tried to remove this as a regular nail polish but I had to use the "foil method" because of the glitter.)


Day 1

 You don't have to apply a top coat but I did to seal the edges.




Day 3





I love this product, when you are in a hurry and want to wear a cool manicure, this is the best option. They have a  variety on the designs and I'm sure you'll find something for your taste.
Thank you for watching!
Carolina.♥

Pink Wednesday!

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!
I haven't done a water marble in a long time, that's why I decided to do a pink water marble for today's post.
I used Barry M Baby Pink, Fuchsia and Raspberry.
As a base color I applied one coat of Bay Pink.





Baby Pink, Fuchsia, Rapsberry

Thank you very much for watching, Have a great day!

Floam Day!

Today is Floam Day!
Polish Days is a group of ladies from the blogger community that are all posting a manicure at the same time using the same nail polish.
Today is the first day of posts and it's Floam turns.
Floam is a nail polish created by Amy from the blog I'm Feeling Nail-Venturous,  this is a clear base packed with green and blue neon matte glitter.
I started this manicure with two coats of ZOYA Phoebe, I taped a half of the nail and applied two coats of Floam, I used a white sheer striping tape to complete this.






These are the ladies who are participating in Polish Days
Thank you very much for watching!

Hits - Lovely

Hey!
This is another nail polish from the Power Puff Girls collection. Lovely is a pastel yellow creme, I applied three coats.
The formula was really thick and wasn't easy to work with.  I found that some of the brushes on these nail polishes were terrible.


I stamped with image plates MASH35/48 using Barry M Foil Effect Gold and special polish black.


Thank you very much for stopping by!

Glitter Daze Flower Girl.

Good Morning beauties!

Hello!

I'm sorry for my recent absence. My car was recently stolen and we have been facing some hard times lately. But don't worry, we will get through this.

Today I'm showing you an amazing glitter top coat I bought the other day, Flower Girl is a clear pink base packed with holographic turquoise, holographic pink, large green, small red, orange and gold bar, as well as purple blossom glitter.
Sana from GlitterDaze blog is the lovely lady who created this baby.


I applied two coats of Flower Girl over one coat of Sinful Colors Black Creme.







 I absolutely love this nail polish, I had too many compliments when I wore it.
 I made a ring to match and I'm very happy with the result.



Glitter Daze Nail polishes can be found at Sasa's  Store Here, go and see all the stunning glitters she had made.

What do you think of Flower Girl? Isn't it adorable?

Thank you very much for stopping by!

Twin Post with Marta from ChitChat Nails

Good Morning!
Today I have a special post for you, it's a twin post!

My adorable friend Marta from ChitChat Nails, sent me my very first Joe Fresh nail polishes the other day and I was so excited to try them out, she also got one of the shades for herself and she suggested to do a twin post and of course I accepted!

I started this manicure with two coats of Joe Fresh Orange Sorbet, a beautiful medium orange creme, it applies nicely and dries semi matte. On the ring finger I applied two coats of Milani White On The Spot and one cot of white pearly glitter.


For the design I used MASH46 and KonadM55, special polishes white, yellow, orange and green.






Have you seen Marta's nails yet? I bet you she did something amazing... as always!

Thank you very much for watching!

Essie -To Buy or Not to Buy/China Glaze Aquadelic

Hello!
This is another gradient manicure I did, for this I used as a base color To Buy or Not to Buy from Essie, a pale lilac polish with flecks of iridescent shimmer that are only visible on the bottle because when I painted my nails I didn't see any of them :(




After wearing just this plain manicure for half a day I decided that it needed "something" so I had to look for a color to make a gradient, I decided to use Aquadelic from China Glaze and this is what came out.


If you enlarge the pictures, you can see the shimmer on my cuticles but not on my nails :/




Still looking for that "something"... I ended up stamping using Konad M73/M78, special polishes white and red.




I love how this manicure came out, I had too many compliments and "likes" when I posted it on Instagram.
Did you like it with or without stamping? What do you think about this combination?


Thank you for watching!
