Jade Hypnose and striping tape manicure.

 Hola there!
Today I'm showing you Hypnose from Jade.
Jade is a Brazilian brand that recently launched a holographic collection. Hypnose is a medium blue with amazing holographic effect. I applied two easy coats, I didn't use any special base for this.





I created a striping tape manicure placing the tape on my nails after they were dry and applied one thick coat of Zoya Rekha, I removed the tape one by one before the nail polish was completely dry, finished with top coat.




It looked so amazing under the sunlight!


Have you tried striping tape manicure?  It's an easy way to create beautiful nail art.
Thank you for watching!

This is the last part of the collection from fall 2012 that ZOYA launched recentely. This consists of six shimmery polishes.

This is a blue toned purple with blue and red shimmer and metallic finish.

A medium blue shade  with slightly shimmer in blue and silver and metallic finish.
Ray
Dark pine green with green and silver shimmer with metallic finish.
Daul
This is a red-toned purple with heavy purple and gold iridescent metallic sparkle.

OPI Launches the Germany Collection for Fall/Winter 2012



OPI embraces runway trends with the Germany Collection for Fall/Winter 2012. Drawing inspiration from Berlin, an exciting new fashion hub that blends classic looks with the avant-garde, the collection’s twelve shades offer a mixture of vibrant color, urban-chic neutrals, and reds in variations from light to dark.
“Designers showcased rich colors and striking textures for fall,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “The Germany Collection beautifully complements these looks, with standout shades in various hues of red and burgundy – the season’s ‘new black.’ Sapphire, black olive and lime yellow are married with creamy neutrals in honey, taupe and nude rose.”
“The overall feel of the Germany Collection is elegance with an edge,” adds Suzi. “The varied palette of colors adds another accent to the list of special touches – think beadwork, paneling, fur and embroidery – that walked the runways during New York Fashion Week. Wearing these shades on fingers and toes is a great way to accessorize a range of looks for the season.”
Germany by OPI includes the following shades:




Don’t Pretzel My Buttons
A haute honey-beige that can always make you smile.

My Very First Knockwurst
…and what a magical rosy-nude rendezvous it was!

Berlin There Done That
A traveling taupe that’s seen it all. (Yep, that too).

Don’t Talk Bach to Me
