Red and pastel blue rose stamping decal nail art

Today I'm showing a Red & pastel blue nail art for last prompt at @whencolourscollide where we biweekly have a color challenge.

I love this color combo (and lol I chose it too) but it took me some time to get it right. You'll probably see my other attempts in the future. Here I created stamping decals for my accent nails. Which means I picked up the black stamping but instead of putting in on my nail, I painted the blue while it still was on the stamper. Then clear and when it was dry I took a tweezer and picked up the decal and put in on top of a semi wet/dry polish base. Tricky but so worth the result. Super happy with this. ^^

Polishes used:

Nordic Cap - NP09
Essence - Today Is Fun Day
Kleancolor - Metallic Black
BornPrettyStore imageplate BP-73
2 MM red rhinestones

Negative space hundstooth in black

So I broke a nail a week ago or so, which resulted in me cutting them all down. I have too much ocd to have uneven length. XD Even though they are long for many people they feel short for me since I cut 5 mm away. So feels unusual but wanted to chear my self up so I did a negative space with stamping. So a franken black jelly as a base, a frame and funky french and then stamping on top.

Polishes used:
Franken black jelly
Moyou special black stamping polish
R d L young - Black
Born Pretty Store stamping plate -

Angelica - Phantom, swatch

Beautiful duochrome polish ranging from dark blue to dark green, maybe even ultra marine (dark blueish purple). Quite often it look emerald green also, like in direct sun shine. This is probably a one-coater, but some coats felt thinner and I wanted to intensify the color so below are 2 coats. Basically it's ridiculously shiny on its own with hardly noticeable brush strokes. Basically I just LOVE this one. So totally my type of polish. As usual with this pretties it was hard to capture.

Sun light pic.
Bought at Primark for £2.5 (bought it in germany though, so payed in euro, but can't remember the euro amount, but maybe 3-4 euro?)

Dance Legend - Machete, swatch

Hi, today I'm showing a swatch of Dance Legend - Machete. I'm using archive pics and this was the base of my heart beat nail art way back. I got Machete from my dear friend @lakobotan and this is unique in my stash. Machete is part of a Steel collection from 2014 which is filled of smooth metallics, where machete is one with warm beige undertones. I think I used 3 coats for this and as usual I topped it of with Seche Vite. Really like it! :D


Multicolor nail art with zentangle zwirls

Hi, here I have a bit weird multicolor zentangle nail art which I put together random. It has inspiration from this zentangle nail art I showed a year ago which then was inspired by a Lucy's Stash nail art. So what do you think? Too much? :)

Polishes used:
HM - Green Street
Essence - Today Is Fun Day
Claire's - 16633, swatch here
Claire's matte top coat
R de L Young - Black

Black, white and blue framed glitter gradient

Here is my previous When Colours Collide nail art, the color scheme was black white and blue and I knew I wanted to use my black Kleancolor glitter on a blue-white gradient and decided to frame it and mattify it. I'm happy with the result. :)

Polishes used:
Kleancolor - Beyond Time And Space
Essence - Let's Get Lost (?)
Essence - Today Is Fun Day
Essence - Wild White Ways
Claire's matte top coat
PS Love black fine liner

R de L Young - Chocolicious, swatch

Hi, also wanted to show you the base I used for my Chocolate nail art I showed you last time. I decided to use R de L Young - Chocolicious which is a perfect milk chocolate color. Formula and application is perfect, 2 simple coats. I don't think these photos makes it justice though, it was getting darker and colder (so my hands feel reddish) but just think milk chocolate and you got it! ;)

Bought in Rossman, in Germany on sale. 0,99 euro! Bargain! :D

Freehand chocolate nails

The theme for Nail Challenge Collaborative this month is Candy&Sweets and I started off with my favorite candy, which is chocolate!

I started with the middle tone brown first and then I freehanded the darker brown and the white shine. And went matte with it. Really happy with these! :D
