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!

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

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
