October 30, 2014 in Nails, Swatches by paulina

Hello my beautiful friends. I hope you are doing great. Ready for Halloween tomorrow? I am still deciding on my costume. I collaborated with Live Live Polish once again and today I have the wonderful Models Own Fruit Pastel collection to share with you. The collection consists of beautiful pastel shades that are fruit scented! No kidding, the polishes actually smell like fruit.

Models Own Fruit Pastel collection counts 7 pastel polishes and I have 6 of them on the blog today (Coconut Cream is not included). I love pastel shades and I was really excited to try these out! I also love the cream formula, so this collection is a real winner for me! Let’s take a a closer look at each shade and I will tell you more about them.

Hello my lovelies. I have to apologize for not posting more often… Lately, my blogging and nail art inspiration is going through a major crisis, but I feel like I am getting back on track, so all is good. Today I want to show you a simple fall nail art I made a few days ago.

Il Était Un Vernis – Once Upon a Time Collection Swatches & Review

October 20, 2014 in Nails, Swatches by paulina

Hello my lovelies. I am sorry for being absent from the blog for a while. My mom is visiting me and I want to spend as much time as possible with her. I don’t get to see her very often, so I am soaking up every moment with her. I am feeling so much more relaxed and positive when she is here!

Today I want to show you swatches of a new nail polish brand from France! Il Était Un Vernis is an indie brand created by two talented bloggers, Bé (Vernis en Folie) and Stéphanie (De Tout et de Rien) and it is manufactured in Australia. Their motto was to create colors they have never seen before. Bé and Stéphanie draw their inspiration from seasonal trends in fashion, interior design and beauty.

The very first collection they created is called Once Upon a Time and it consists of five beautiful and unique polishes. All the colors below are swatched over the Glisten & Glow Stuck on Blu! base topped with one layer of Seche Vite top coat.

Please click on the images to enlarge them. Let’s look at the gorgeousness!

No Comment is a gorgeous, deep red full of holographic mini glitters. I just love this shade of red. I feel like it really suits my skin tone and I was immediately drawn to this color. It is quite sparkly, but classy and elegant at the same time. It’s a red carpet appropriate nail polish! The formula was amazing and the application flawless. I applied 2 thin coats.

October 14, 2014 in Nail Art, Nails by paulina

Hello my lovely friends. Today’s post is a very special one and also quite emotional. My dear friend Emily from Very Emily is going through a very rough time in her life right now. I don’t want to go into details, because it’s very personal.  Me and a few other talented nail artists decided to collaborate and make a nail art inspired by one of her amazing designs. By doing this we want to show her our support and send hugs. We are here for you Ems!

The nails I decided to recreate are one of the most beautiful and intricate that Emily made. They are the Asa No Ha, Japanese pattern. I love making pattern nails and those were very detailed and complicated. Here is Emily’s original design.
