Nailart Spam #2

Uff, no planeaba publicar dos posts recopilatorios seguidos, pero he estado tan poco inspirada en pintar mis uñas y sacar fotos, que me cuesta encontrar una foto decente, menos voy a tener 3 para un post completo. Así que las dejo con una muestra de lo que he usado ultimamente en mis uñas, casualmente son 3 looks que se enfocan en usar diferentes tonos de una misma colección. Los detalles iran debajo de cada foto, espero les guste y gracias por leer! :)

Wow. Sorry guys, I didn't plan on writing 2 of these kind of posts in a row, but I've been uninspired to blog about my nails lately and when I take pictures I hardly find one that I like, let alone 3 for a full blog post for one mani. I also recently broke a nail on a trip and filed them all down, so that's not helping my motivation either :( Anyway I hope you like some of my latest attempts at nailart and I hope to be back with a full post soon.

This one was an experiment with a holo gradient and I used three shades from the Color Club Halo Hues: Eternal Beauty, Miss Bliss and Cosmic Fate. On the accent I stamped with Cici and Sisi #12 with Konad Black and a bit of dotted Nails Inc Baker Street.
Next my Hipster Nails with one of my new Moyou London plates! For the watercolor background I used three shades from the China Glaze Sunsational Jellies collection: You Drive me Coconuts, Are you Jelly? and Keepin' it Teal and followed this tutorial for the effect. Then I stamped with the Moyou Hipster 08 plate and Konad Special White.

Not my best stamping but I'm happy by how completely hipster this mani turned out.
Some freehanded nailart inspired by MrCandiipants using the OPI Euro Centrale collection. For the base I used My Vampire is Buff and for the lines I used the colors that came in the mini kit: Cant' Find My Czechbook, Suzy's Hungary Again, You're such a Budapest and OY-Another Polish Joke (plus a random navy blue we can pretend it's Eurso Euro *wink wink*).

Finally, for this look I used two Picture Polish shades: Imperial and Douceur (from the 2013 Collaborative Shades) and then stamped over them with Essie Penny Talk and Pueen 72 (from the Buffet collection)

And that's it for today's edition of what's been on my nails lately :) I just realized that all of these focus on using several shades of one collection, which is something I like to do, even though I don't usually get a lot of shades from one collection (unless they come in minis).

Do you own a full collection of polish? I do, but only two: the Lime Crime Les Dessert shades (loved those colors) and the China Glaze Sunsational Jellies (because, jellies! lol).


  1. OMG, your hipster nails are amazing! You've totally made me want that plate- ahh! What a great use of those jellies! I also really love the PP floral manicure- so pretty!

    Hmm, I have a few full collections from Zoya since I swatch for them, but I also have Illamasqua's Toxic Nature set which is five polishes I love! It's pretty fun to collect full sets I think!

  2. The 2nd and 3rd manicures looks stunning. I will try them soon. Thank you sharing it :-)
    Happy weekend :-)
