Kicks - Rain Drops swatch white rose nail art manicure

Kicks – Rain Drops

I was just feel like a light, shimmery, blue manicure. So I found my Kicks – Rain Drops, which might really be more an icy blue for winter, but it’s super pretty, and the shimmer really sparkles in the sunshine! The shimmer does not translate in these photos, but trust me, it’s gorgeous!   Then I […]


Snow crystals

I am so excited that winter is coming and I can wear this gorgeous KB Shimmer polish again! Snow Much Fun is from their 2013 winter collection, but I didn’t get it until March. It was constantly sold out, and I’m sure you can see why, it’s gorgeous! I decided to pair it with some accents nails […]


GOT – Purple

I’d been stumped for what do to for the purple day of GOT, but then Lieve91 reminded me of how gorgeous saran wrap manicures are and all my nail art problems dissappeared 😉 I used Kicks – Midsummer Lily and OPI – Pamplona Purple. Boy do I like the dramatic result! I do not want to […]


GOT – Chevron

As I’m looking at this finished manicure I’m thinking it looks familiar, and that I think I’ve done something like it before… And what do you know, I have!   I think I like this version better though, because of the contrasting finishes, I love combining different polish finishes it makes for such an interesting […]


GOT – Dots

I am not feeling very talkative today, so I’ll just list up a few details of this manicure. Two coats of Kicks – Midsummer Lily as the base. Then, inspired by Lucy, I added dots using Kicks – Brownish Bazaar and Kicks – Metro Grey.   An InLinkz Link-up Related posts: GOT – Purple Inspired by […]


Have a little faith in midsummer

Ring and thumb: Cadillaquer – Have a Little Faith Gradient: Depend – 321 and Kicks – Midsummer Lily I wanted to wear Have a Little Faith so bad! It’s such a gorgeous lilac creme with dark purple and silver hexes in many sizes. As well as a deep set magenta shimmer, it is such a […]


Inspired by me

Day 27 – “Inspired by you”, well, what’s more me than yarn and knitting? ;D Base is OPI – Moon Over Mumbai on all fingers but my index which is Essie – 102. For all the balls of yarn I used… OPI – Lucky Lucky Lavender and Can’t Find My Czechbook, Essie -102 and Castaway, […]


Metro Grey

Grey: Kicks – Metro Grey Glitter: Cirque – Galinda I have been eyeing this gorgeous glitter from Cirque for a long time, I was especially jealous around christmas time when nail bloggers all over were sporting “snowy winter manicures” using this glitter. Because it really does look like snow on the nails! So I was […]


My Ruffian Private Jet

Opi – My Private JetKicks – Brownish Bazar Need to express my love for My Prive Jet once more <3 Think I’m getting better at painting my nails! I first used a french tip guide for the bottom part, but I didn’t think it was curved enough, so I freehanded it instead. Did a pretty […]


Elegant lilac

Base: Kicks – Midsummer LilyStamping plate: BM – 310 stamped with Konad white. Must say I love this manicure, love the lilac and the subtle stamp, looks very elegant! But cleaning up light polish is pretty much impossible, I can barely see where I’ve spilled until I open the pictures on my computer! Oh well, […]


Gold and teal Ruffian

Teal: Opi – Ski Teal We DropGold: Kicks – Brownish Bazar My hands are not steady enough to do this kind of manicure without french manicure guides. I would have liked it to have a more rounded bottom, but that’s gonna have to be when I get better at applying polish. This is also my first meeting […]
