Black and gold antique/vintage nail art

Hi! Took some more days off from the blog.. went on a fishing and camping tour with my family. And later today my boyfriend will come here. But of course I want to show you my nails, especially when Lela has a theme at Nail Art Sunday. The theme was "antique" and I had no idea what to do at first.. Then I remembered that my mother has some antique golden polish which I wanted to use and I googled for "antique gold pattern" and decided to make a free interpretation with gold and black with a whole bunch of accent nails. I'm quite happy with the mix.

Polishes used:
ZTIZ - 9923 (gold)
ZTIZ - 6626 (black creme)
Kleancolor - Beyond Time And Space
Jordana Pop Art - Black Mark
Metal studs rhinestones, "golden flower petal"

Metallic leopard spots

Hi! Had a blog free day yesterday. Went to my brother and his girl friend and hang out and had barbecue dinner etc. And now I'm also at my parents place, picking blueberries, painting their house etc. I also have some good news to tell you later on but we can save that for later. :)

Let's look at some nail art instead. Large blue metallic leopard spots on top of black creme, quite elegant and clean. And yea, apparently a lot of flowers combined too since I had a flower-photo-period last year when I took these photos. XD

Love the metallic in the sun.

Polishes used:
ZTIZ (black creme)

Paris memories - #293, swatch

What is your opinion about yellow shimmers? Like it or not, here I have some photos from last year with Paris memories - #293 (which actually is one of my moms polishes). I think this could have had high potential, being almost "honey colored" but the 4-5 coats makes me a bit negative towards it. However, considering the price it's not too bad even though I prefer creme yellows over shimmers.

Claudia - 611, swatch

Today I'm showing Claudia - 611 which is a dusky teal blue creme covering with 3 coats (maybe 2 thick would work too). For some weird reason I'm never drawn to teal polishes, however I'm realizing that I really like wearing them after all. This was almost not bought at all but because of the good price and I was buying the other colors this one couldn't be left alone. ;) In general these Claudia polishes has really impressed me with good quality and their low price.  As you might remember this was part of my last contribution to Nail Art Sunday and this will appropriately also be my contribution to Blue Monday. :P

Bough at food store (ICA).

Studded nail art in teal and gold

Hi, Today I have a simple but chic nail art to show. The colors was actually inspired by something Traces of Polish did way back and I knew I wanted to use the same color scheme. I guess there isn't anything more to say than that you can check out more nail art at Lelack for Nail Art Sunday.

Polishes used:
Claudia - 611

L.A. Colors Art Deco - Gold
Jordana Pop Art - Black Mark

Gradient in red and purple

For today I have a simple but yet beautiful gradient to show. This was actually the base for the delicate print I did for the 31dnc last year but I liked the color combo so much that I decided to show the base alone as well. I just love this color combo, a warm red, magenta and purple! 

Polishes used:
La Femme - ?
ZTIZ - ?
Nordic Cap - NP11
