Dark sky filled with stars

The pictures don't show it well but the glitters are actually gold! I love this combination of denim jeans blue and gold glitters. And it surprises me that the glitters are so easy to remove. Glitters usually are a pain in the ass if it comes to removing them -__-

Definitely going to use this special topper from Essence for Christmas themed nails. Stay tuned for Christmas & Winter nail art :D
Items used:

London's weather forecast

Lately I prefer one coloured nails with a special top coat (glitter, matte, cracking etc) because I simply don't have much time to spend on nail art boehoe T__T

The base colour I used is one of my favourites. It's a dark colour but it has a warm appearance.

Floral stamping

My testweek is over yayy! It wasn't my best week though. Anyway, I have time again but I just broke the nail of my middle finger ): of both my hands! Cryyyy T__T

It's been a long time since I got short round nails. I cut all my nails short so all my nails are even. I really have to get used to it. I found it hard to decorate short nails but I think stamping is the best option. It's easy and you won't find a problem of the stamping print being too small for your whole nail. I guess you'll mostly find nail art for short nails in the next weeks until they've grown long again.
Items used:
Gosh - #003 Groovy grey (special edition)
Essence nail art stampy polish black
Born Pretty stamping plate m73
So what would you like to see on short nails?

Edit: A visitor asked me what nail polish I use for stamping plates. I use these Essence swatches which are specially for stamping purposes. Essence is an European make-up brand and is sold in de Dutch local stores. I don't have experience with any other stamping polish from other brands and I'm pretty satisfied with this brand.

Preview: Andrelon's new products for straight hair

Andrelon is a popular shampoo brand founded by a Dutch hair dresser and has a wide range of hair products. They have products for all hair types. Straight, curled, weak, damaged, you name it!

And guess what! I got chosen to try their new products. Two weeks ago I got these three bottles in the mail. A heat protector, mousse and hairspray for achieving straight hair!

I used to have straight hair when I was younger. But the older I got, the less straight my hair got ): I always have to fix this issue with a straightener but it never last long. So I'm really excited to review these and I'm curious of how they will work on my hair.

Before the end of this month I'll be posting a review of these products so stay tuned!

Elegant autumn

I was inspirated by a photo I saw at Weheartit. After applying the base colour I applied some golden glitter nail polish in the corner with a sponge. After that I drew the leaves and I completed the design with some glitters in the corner of the leaves :D

I'd love to do a tutorial for this but next week is test week ): so that means.. study study study. Wish me good luck! I will need it.
