Another springy manicure from May! I have no idea what polishes I used though, sorry!

Marble nail fail

I guess I’m being too hard on my self when I’m calling this a “fail”, because it’s not really bad, it’s just now I had imagined! I think it would look better/more like I wanted it to, if I didn’t use as much black polish, I wanted more of the white base to show through. […]

No matter how many times you guess, you’ll never be able to guess what inspired this manicure. So I’ll just tell you! My toilet paper! *insert ROTFL smiley here* I was about to do my nails, and went to the bathroom right before, as you do, you don’t want to mess up your wet nails! […]

Isn’t this adorable? Lol, how  conceited did I just sound? :p I was watching a documentary and saw these huge ceramic vases in the background, with pink and mint mosaic and some gold stripes.

Polisher’s Inc. – What’s On TV

Today’s challenge for Polisher’s Inc. is “What’s on TV”. And what have I been most obsessed over on TV lately? Game of Thrones of course! So obviously I created Game of Thrones inspired nails! They were hard to photograph, I regret not using a matte top coat, because the glossy top coat creates a reflection making […]

Roses and Quatrefoil

I loved doing this manicure! It’s been so long since I’ve done intricate nail art, not that it’s super detailed and intricate, but I did do the tiniest roses I’ve ever done! On my middle and ring I started with a base of OPI – My Boyfriend Scales Walls and for the quatrefoil design I also […]


Kate Spade dots

Kate Spade is my obsession <3    It happened unintentionally though, or, my subconscious created this manicure, lol. I didn’t realize I got the idea from Kate Spade until I opened my wallet today :p I used OPI – Alpine Snow as my white base. Not my favorite white, I had to use three coat […]
