Happy last day of 2015 :) Today's blogpost is going to be a recap of the best nails from 2015. On Instagram I posted what 9 picture got the most likes (you can check it out HERE if you haven't seen it already), but today I will show you my favorites: nail arts and nail polishes. So this is goingt to be a journey through tiny nubs, old camera photos and terrible hand poses :D

Today I'm going to show you a really easy but lovely nail art, I wear this for 2 days now and I'm still don't want to remove it, I think I will leave it until Christmas. But don't worry, I'm going to show you my Christmas Eve nail art too this week, but that's going to be the last post for the week.

Friday, December 11, 2015 / By Lexa / 5 comments / born pretty store, christmas, nail art, PRsample, review, stamping, winter
Today I will show you a Winter/Christmas themed stamping plate that I got from Born Pretty Store for review. I didn't choosed this, they kindly sent it as an extra, and even though I tried to avoid stamping lately (I want to focus more on my freehand skills), I was really happy when I saw it, because (oddly) I don't have any Winter/Christams themed stamping plates.

I hope you don't mind another ILNP post, I just did one last week with some randome picks. I just couldn't wait to show you my Winter/Holiday collection pre-orders. Sadly, I only could pick up 4 shades this time, but I really like Limelight, Cozy Mittens, XO and Empire, and I'm also thinking about Juliette, because I really need that along with Cirque Halcyon :D
ILNP is one of my favorite brands, I think Barbra makes some really revolutionary finishes, but keeps everything brilliantly sophisticated.

It's a bit hard for me to go into the Winter season, because I love Fall so much. And honestly there's not too much of options in the Winter theme: I don't like to paint Santa, Snowman and that kind of stuff, so theres only a couple of patterns that I can choose from. Also, getting around Christmas I feel this need that I HAVE TO use red in my nail arts, and that is something that I try to avoid (can you tell that I'm not a red wearer? :D).

Before I would show you my picks of the ILNP Winter collection, I will show you 4 nail polishes that I picked up a couple of weeks ago. They were on my wishlist for a while, and now I finally could buy them.

I'm so happy that I finally could get Coral Reef from FUN Lacquer's 2nd Anniversary collection. I fell in love the minute I saw this beauty, and mostly because it's unique finish (holo glitters + shifting flakies) and awesome colour-combo.

I'm going to show you 2 nail art that I made using Cirque Colors nail polishes. They are quite simple designs (well, compared what I usually do), because it's a lot harder working with quick drying nail polishes instead of acrylic paint.

Yesterday I noticed, that now we are 20.000 on my Instagram! When I started nail blogging 3 years ago I never thought I will have this many followers, supporters, it's a dream come true! This nail art is just as kitsch as much I'm happy right now :D
Thank you sooo much for your support <3

I'm about to show you the 6 new jellies/crellies that are going to be available for pre-order on November 23 from 12PM-8PM MST on llarowe.com and they will be $6 each.
Most of the polishes are leaning toward the jelly category, so you either will need 3 coats, or you can use them for glitter/UCC sandwich or a pond manicure.

I have the Cirque Colors Holiday 2015 collection to show you today, which was kindly sent to me for a review, thank you Annie :) The collection consists of 3 brand new shades, and a recurring shade: AU, which is a 23K gold leaf topper.

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 / By Lexa / 3 comments / Colors by Llarowe, holographic, PRsample, swatch
And here it is another amazing Colors by Llarowe collection, with 12 new winter (and not so winter-y) shades. They turned out so pretty, it would be a pain to choose only one, as a favorite. There is something for everyone in this collection, it's really versatile.

In my last Born Pretty Store review package there was a nail art brush that I choosed, because I wanted to try out a more professional, a little bit pricier brush. I always use cheap ebay ones, you know that 3 for $1 brushes like THIS os THIS (I usually trim them with a nail scissors), and I was doing fine with them, but I wanted to see how these fancy nail art brushes work, and are they better than the cheap ones.

FUN Lacquer's Christmas collection is soooo beautiful! I really like the two green one, but the two Cheers to the Holidays are the stars of the collection in my opinion. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to buy the only duochrome version of this polish and Desires (H) too.

I have 5 stamping pates to show you today, they all from Bundle Monster and they all related to sports. I did 1-1 nail art for each, and they might seems too much as a manicure, but I tried to use as many patterns as I could, so you can see the potencial of each plates. I'm not a big sport fan btw., but I love dancing, so the first plate is really calls my name!

I'm still a little bit overwhelmed in the nail art front because the 31 day challenge, so I did a lot of swatching lately. But yesterday night I had the urgent need to paint something nice on my nails.

I have these nail polishes since May, and finally I had the chance to swach them. I swatched Morgan Taylor polishes before (if you missed them, you can read my reviews HERE), and these 4 beauties are just the same amazing quality that I'm used to when I paint my nails with a MT.

Wednesday, October 21, 2015 / By Lexa / 9 comments / born pretty store, gradient, nail art, PRsample, stud
Today I have a studded nail art for you to show. I rarely do this kind of nail art lately, I just totally fell in love with freehand, so it was a little bit refreshing to do something different. I got these awesome abalone nail decorations from Born Pretty Store and I thought I will use some gold studs and caviar beads with it.

Envy Lacquer is an indie brand from America and I'm going to show you the Fall Rock Candy Trio today. I also got the Sugar Skull collection for swatching, so I'm going to show you more Envy Lacquer beauties next week!

ILNP is one of my favorite nail polish brands, they make amazing quality and unique polishes, but keeping them easy to wear. I'm always so excited about the new collections, and I was just beyond amazed by this year's fall collection. It was really hard to choose these 4 colours, because I also really like Glory, First Class and PLL, but there is also Dream Girl and....awww I wan't them all :D

Nailland had a great news a couple of days earlier: a new nail polish brand will be available: Cirque Colors! The pre-order will finish on 05.10., and we can have 5% off from the original price. This great news was the final push to swatch my very first Cirque polishes that I bought a couple of months ago from Harlow&Co.

It's pretty much Autumn here in Hungary now, I was waiting for these chilly days, it's so refreshing after the summer heat. Today's manicure is all about autumn. I created it for a nail art contest that Pshiit hosts at her instagram. Google Translator said it's international, so let's hope he's not a liar :D

I bought these two KBShimmer flakies from Harlow&Co. a couple of months ago. and now let's see how they look on my nails! I heard only good things about the KBS flakies and their amazing coverage, but I was a little bit sceptical. Well I shouldn't be. These are truly amazing, both of them is a 2 coater!

All right everyone, let me say this first: this nail polish is impossible to photograph :D I tried natural daylight, artificial light, flash...but nothing was quite right. I swear somehow this is worse than a neon polish :D So pay attention on my colour description rather than the swatches :/

Are you ready for another set of 31DC? I hope you are, because I'm gonna show you my metalic, rainbow and gradient nails today. Btw. I will post these round-ups every monday and thursday, so now you know the schedule.

I'm obsessed with Femme Fatale Cosmetics ever since I saw the first swatches of the Snow White collection. I think Femme Fatale makes the most unique, badass, edgy polishes nowadays. Their nail polishes are not pretty, the're not cute, but they are amazing and jaw dropping and I want them ALL!
Monday, September 07, 2015
Here is the second pile of nail arts. Today I will show you the green, blue, violet and black&white manis that I made for 31DC2015. Again, all of them is handpainted with acrylic paint.
