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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
