Guest Post #6: Aylin from Posh Nail Art

Something a little different to show you today as I have another guest poster, this time from Turkey!  Take it away Aylin!

Hi… This is Aylin from Posh Nail Art… Today, I’ll be guest posting for Polish All The Nails, a blog I’ve been following for some time… J
This will be my first guest post and I’m really excited, so forgive me if I make a mistake… J

For today, I picked a theme that reminds me the hot days of summer. It is getting hotter here in Istanbul, Turkey… And my daughter has been begging to have ice cream every single day… (So this mani is decicated to her…J)
And I’ve been dying to use my new Cheeky plates… So, here we go… J

I used Flormar 424, a minty green creme polish from the Spring Collection, as the base of my manicure… These polishes are very pigmented, so if you use a thick color, one coat is enough for opacity…
As you can see in the pictures, I painted all my nails with 424, but then I changed my mind and decided to make an accent nail. So, for the accent nail and the stamping of stripes, I used Flormar 429, again from the same series…
The plate is Cheeky Ch10, from the 2012 set. I absolutely loved the designs in this set. I used the ice cream design from the same plate on the accent nail, and stamped it with Konad Special Nail Polish in White. I placed some dots with my smallest dotting tool.








The Verdict: Love it!  Aylin, you've done an amazing job with the stamping!  Keep it up!

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night.  My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off.  I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried.  I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats.  Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner.  It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today.  Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage.  That's ok, glitter dries fast.  It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix.  The Verdict:  Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?
