El Corazon - 423/122 Fenechka, swatch

Today I'm showing the russian brand; El Corazon - 423/122 Fenechka, which is a yellow neon crelly/jelly with matte black and white glitter. I think I used 2-3 coats and application was easy. Sadly the images came out a bit crappy but I really liked the polish so this wasn't the last time you'll see this. ;) 




Oh extra info for the curious. Lakobotan tells me that "Fenechka" is the word often used for handmade bracelets. Often thiner types of bracelets. :)

From nail polish swap with Lakobotan.

Glitter gradient in green, pink and white

It's Wednesday and of course it is green. My base is a green I showed before, Wet n Wild - Glow stick and on top I've done a gradient with Lady Rose - 786 which is a russian polish I've got from Lakobotan. As usual Lakobotan knows my taste of polishes and Lady Rose - 786 is not an exception. 786 has matte hexagons in dark green and light pink and lots of white small glitter, it was awesome for glitter gradients and I will show it layered in the future. Maybe this mani is too summer or spring like for this season, but I like it so you'll see it anyhow. :)







Polishes used:

Jelly sandwich

Jelly sandwiches are so beautiful sometimes, here I've got one (kinda jelly sandwich at least?) I'm very biased about, in some ways I think it looks cool and unusual, but it other ways I think it looks weird, like if it's some kind of organical membrane...Anyow, I started with a black creme, then Kleancolor - Party Fever and then a coat of Kleancolor - Sheer Pastel White. I've actually showed this combo once before, that time I liked it more than this time, maybe because I had longer nails that time or used more glitter? What do you think?






Polishes used:
Nordic Cap - NP12

Kleancolor - Party Fever
Kleancolor - Sheer Pastel White

Kleancolor - Party Fever, swatch and layering

Today I have a short post to show, the light and photos aren't the best either. But, nevertheless, you'll get the picture of Kleancolor - Party Fever at least, here layered over a black creme. As you can see there is middle size hexagons in blue and pink, and also small pink glitter. It's pretty dance so from what I remember below is 2 coats. Many of the Kleancolor's glitter are slow drying, but I don't remember this one to be that.


Bought at ebay.

Cute teddybear nail art in pink and blue

Now it's time for something unusual here, super feminine nails in a very girly color scheme. I did this in the middle of this summer and I'm not sure I liked wearing these, even though I liked the result per ce. I think I'm more into edgier nails, at least for the moment.  I'd say that my accent nails are teddy bears or dogs? I'm not sure what they looks like the most, being pink and all that.. ;) I also did a matching pedicure but with flowers, so you "feet sensitive" persons, might wanna skip the last 2 pictures.. :P
Also, don't forget to check out Nail Art Sunday :)

So.. Is it pink teddy bears or is it pink dogs? Tell me what you think?

Etude House - #115 Cotton Candy Kiss, swatch and layering

Today I decided to show you Etude House - #115 Cotton Candy Kiss from their Play Nail Color collection. The name could also be only Candy Kiss btw.

The base is clear and the polish is very glitter packed. In the bottle I see yellow, blue, white and pink and also some tiny lonely iridescent glitter. The shapes are hearts, hexagons and diamond shapes. It was surprisingly no fishing and the hearts easily got on the brush and this is my result after 3 coats. Black as a base was maybe not the best decision even though I like the result. But next time I'll try something lighter, in the bottle this looks very soft and feminine. Maybe I'll try layer it over a pastel next time? :)




I bought this from ebay for about 3 euro and the bottle is 8ml.

Miyo - Mars, swatch

Hi, today I have a duochrome polish to show for a change, I've used a bunch of multichromes, so now we only have one color change to look at. Miyo is a brand I don't own so many of, they're a bit more expensive than other brands (like 5-6 euro), but for color changing polishes I can spend a bit more, even though this isn't the most color changing I got.

I thought that Miyo - Mars was similar to CC - Port-folio but bought it anyhow and now I'm glad I did since it has turned out to be very different. I needed 3 coats for it to cover. The main color is purple leaning towards blue and the duochrome shimmer is a teal green (ie green towards blue.) It was hard to photograph but I tried in different lights so you can see some difference at least.

Gelic nail art on instagram!

Yea, it has finally happened, I've got an official instagram account for the blog.

@gelicnailart




I'll fill it up along with my usual blog routine, so it wont stay empty for long. :)

You can also see it in the side bar to the right, below archive and all the follow stuff. Available at Snapwidget.

I'd also like to mention that my internet connection here in Germany basically sucks atm so I have no wifi to my phone so all posting etc is through my laptop through Gramblr. So if I answer really slow at IG or not at all it's because I don't get tagged, because you only get tagged on the phone.. But that hopefully will get better in the future.

So... Please follow and I'll follow you back :)

ILNP - Mutagen, swatch


I have a whole bunch of ILNP which I haven't showed yet and today I'm starting with Mutagen. As you all know by now, I love duochrome/multichromes and it was obvious that I would start with the green toned one; Mutagen, also perfect for Green Wednesday. Mutagen covered in 3 coats and application and formula was nice. To describe the color combo there is different tones of green and brown which is the most common look in the most lights. BUT! The brown sometime go towards pink and sometime towards gold. The green goes to teal, to blue, to purple and then to magenta/pinkish, as you'll see in the pictures.  I had a serious hard time to restrain my self in the amount of pictures, so a picture spam is inevitable. Enjoy!
