Guest Post #7: Raquel from 9ml Universe

Guest post time!  Today we have a lovely sparkly mani from the lovely Raquel from the lovely 9ml Universe!  Take it away, Raquel.
Hi everyone! 
My name is Raquel and today I'll be showing you a brand that I doubt any of you has heard about, it's a spanish brand called Yes Love. I don't own many polishes from this brand, just 2 I think, but the ones I do own are quite awesome! At first, I wasn't really sure if they were any good. Here in Portugal they're only sold in chinese stores and only cost 1€, so that made me think they would be crappy, but everyone on the portuguese Facebook groups I'm in, only had nice things to say about them. I decided to give them a try and found this gorgeous colour one day on my way home. I have a soft spot for purple polishes! 
Ok, moving on to the polish itself. This is Yes Love #N06 and it's purple with some gold micro glitter in it.  It had a really nice formula, not too thick or runny, and 2 coats were enough to get perfect coverage. Can't really talk about drying time though, I always use Seche Vite after doing my nails. 
If anyone here follows my blog, you know that my thing is my accent nail! I always try to do something different on my ring finger. This time wasn't any different, but I wanted it to have a little bit of Laura's thing too, and that left me no other choice than glitter!! xD I always love her glittery manicures and admire her patience do to that on all of her nails.
So here you have it, a purple manicure with handplaced purple (sometimes green-ish or blue-ish) glitter on my accent nail.

I  hope you all liked this manicure, I was a bit lost and didn't know what to do for this post and I'd also like to thank Laura for the possibility to write a guest post for her fantastic blog. 

Thanks so much Raquel, you did amazingly!  I always love what other people do with hand-place glitter :D


  1. It's a very interesting design, love it!

  2. This looks lovely, I would like to think that is what dragon scales would look like :D

  3. Thank you for the opportunity, Laura! ^^

  4. Hi Laura! Amazing guest post with Raquel! I am also a Portuguese girl and I do too own a lot of Yes Love and their price quality relation is great. There are lots of colors, finishes and glitters to chose from! I really loved the one that Raquel chose to show yous! And the accent nail.. well.. perfect!!
    Congrats to you both!

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

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!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
