Hello my lovely ladies. I am really excited about today’s post that was brought to you by the Live Love Polish. It’s a newly opened online nail polish store that is carrying some of the best nail polish brands, such as China Glaze, Color Club and NCLA. At the same time I wanted to announce that I was chosen as one of their Creative Ambassadors. What does it mean for the blog? More reviews, swatches of awesome polishes and beautiful nail art :) So exciting!
Today the brand that we are going to focus on is Color Club and I have four stunning polishes to show you. This is the first time that I am trying Color Club and this brand really exceeded my expectations. Let me show you the polishes and I am going to tell you more about them.
All the swatches below are shown over a nail polish base, Glisten & Glow Stuck on Blu! and topped with one coat of Seche Vite top coat.

Hello lovelies. As you can tell, by looking at the title, I am catching up with the 31 days challenge. I wasn’t too happy with my galaxy nails, but my dear friend Mina made me post them (thank you for talking me into this sweet girl!), so I thought, why not make the watermarble I missed yesterday and be up-to-date with the challenge. That’s what I did and here are the results.
My galaxy nails are nothing special really. I think I don’t enjoy making these as much as I did the first time. The beautiful base for this mani is Mod Lacquer Revenant and I added a whole bunch of other polishes, which I’m not going to list right now. Not too good, not too bad, they are a little bit flat looking and I really wish they had more depth, but oh well, at least there are sparkles.

Hi my beautiful friends. Today it’s all about half moon nails and whenever I think of this kind of design, words like ‘classy’ and ‘elegant’ come to my mind. In my half moon nails, there is some nail art involved, but not so much to overpower the main nail polish color. I kept it simple and just added a bit of sparkles. Let’s take a look.
The base of my half moon and the part that you see by my cuticles is the beautiful China Glaze Fairy Dust. I thought adding a bit of sparkle would add some cuteness and it’s better than leaving that space completely empty. I love Fairy Dust mainly because it’s so soft and the glitters are very tiny. It’s a great top coat for absolutely anything.

Hi my beautiful friends. I really can’t believe I am still on the challenge. There were times I wanted to give up, but I stuck around and here we are at day 17 rocking those awesome glitter nails. I had a glitter nail fail this morning and had to start all over again. I made a golden glitter gradient over a dark turquoise base and it looked awful. Not only that, the polish stained my nails really badly, so I had to use half a lemon to brighten my nails up. Anyways, my glitter nails today are simple and girly, so let’s take a look.
The other day, I was organizing my stash and found a silver-ish golden glitter from some no-name brand. I thought it looked really cool and very opaque as well. On my ring finger I applied 2 thin coats and it covered my entire nail. The pretty turquoise is the famous KIKO no. 389 and the pink polish is China Glaze Spring in My Step. I used a regular striping tape to create the triangles.
