ILNP Holo Hearts Decals

Today we have lots and lots of ILNP on the nails – I’ve painted some decals 🙂
If you’re interested in ILNP: Website
And yes I know – I was absend way too long *sigh* But I hope this will change again and I will post some more manis and nailarts.

ILNP Holo Hearts Gloss

used:

Basecoat Essie – Help me grow
Base color ILNP – First Class
Stamping Color Mundo de Uñas – black
Stampingplate Vivid Lacquer – VL 009
colors ILNP – Kings & Queens, Iconic, Very Ornamental, Champagne Blush, Amanda Hugginkiss, Black Orchid
Topcoat Maybelline – Already Dry

And that is how it looks when I’m spending a lot of time doing nail decals.
ILNP Holo Hearts Making ofAnd for that mess I’ve got the Simply Neat Miracle Mat  still my favourite ground for work like that – otherwise my desk would look like a paintball arena 🙂

First one thick Coat Basecoat on the mat. After a short drying time I’ve stamped on that and colored the stamping. After finishing that I’ll leave it to dry completely. And then Finish the decal with a thick layer of “First Class” My base color.  And then – let it dry completely. Good thing with this mat – you always can go to the toilet while doing the decals.
After a good drying periode I peeled the decals carefully off the mat. Then I started fitting the decal to the nail. First a bit roughly.  Then I Use the base color “First Class” to glue the Decal to the nail.

ILNP Holo Hearts without Topcoat

And because using the matte for decals the Decals itself become sort of Matt And because I like that I’ll start with pictures without Topcoat.

ILNP Holo Hearts with Topcoat

And because I used holo polishes i had to use a Gloss Topcoat so that you can see the holo – because: Holo!

So. How do you like that? Too much? too much hearts? too much holo (as if ^_^) OR too much work? Or ar you thinking:  “Höhöhö! Holo!”

And considering summer is crazy around here – from time to time almost feels like it’s already fall – I have to use every opportunity and use all the holo – Because – Sun and Holo is just perfection.

Soccer Euro 2016 – #GERSVK

You might think – ok she’s late. Yes, I did not make it. I watched the soccer game but I hadn’t the german themed mani. But it was comic con weekend and I had no time. At least I wore ‘Aim to misbehave’ the number 1000 Shade from Essie. And – considering the fact that Nathan Filion was there. 😉
So – there – The nails were only gold – so I did some dry brushes in later on in red and black.
Fussball GERSVK Finger

used:

Basecoat Essie – Help me grow
color Essie – Blanc, Licorice, Aim to misbehave p2 – Portugal
Topcoat Maybelline – 3D Gel Effect

yes – in retrospect – it is a bit much of gold but hey 🙂Fussball GERSVK HandThe ring you can find on the page from Chao und Eero. Fussball GERSVK ManiI try to decide which finger I like best but I think – middlefinger – as always – always the middlefinger 😉 If you want to see my other Black red Gold Nails you can go here. I really hope I can do my nails until the final game 🙂 But then I will keep my distance from the color combination. But I also saw in the statistics that quite a few soccer related searches come here 🙂

Soccer Euro 2016 – #NIRGER

Soccer – again 😉 The third and last Game in the Groups vs Northern Ireland: #NIRGER and because I made it a tradition to paint my nails for the games – and as mentioned – a bit of paranoia 😉 Well – I just continue to polish my nails of possible 🙂
Fussball NIRGER Mani

used:

Basecoat Essie – Help me grow
color Essie – Blanc, Licorice, Aim to misbehave p2 – Portugal

I did a sugar spun Mani back in the World Championship (you can have a look here – german only)  so I did it again. This Time I used Simply Peel Liquid Latex Barrier so the mess was on a minimum – sugar spun never again without liquid latex 🙂Fussball NIRGER Latex

Sadly Aim to misbehave doesn’t work that good in sugar spun manis – a bit too thick and goopy. Next time I wouldn’t use it for this mani. But well.  Try and Error. 🙂 if you have a closer look at the pictures you will see what I mean when I say ‘thick and goopy’ 😉

Fussball NIRGER CloserBut well – looking at that
Fussball NIRGER Fingermaybe not at close up
Fussball NIRGER HandIt doesn’t look that bad… it looks quite nice. And after realizing – using Liquid latex for sugar spun nails reduces the mess a lot – I should do these frequently.
And – do I annoy you with my soccer nails? Do you ignore me or do you thing ‘oh well – it looks nice’
Well I like it – I surely wouln’t use Aim to misbehave again for this but as I said – Try and error 😉

Soccer Euro 2016 – #GERPOL

And here we go again soccer Euro – the next game of Germany: Poland – Germany #GERPOL. After the Championship I am a bit superstitious concerning my nails and the results – so I will continue to do my nails for every game 🙂
Today – a multicolor Stamping black red gold on white. I planned for something different but I will save that for the next game.

GERPOL Bottle

used:

Basecoat Essie – Help me grow
Basecolor Essie – Blanc
Stampingcolor Essie – Licorice, Aim to misbehave p2 – Portugal
Stampingplate BornPretty – BP-17
Topcoat Maybelline – 3D Gel Effect

I have to say – Aim to misbehave is a really good soccer Euro Flag polish 😀 It’s good for stamping (of course not that good on darker polishes) And I like the polish (I mean – aim to misbehave? – Hello!!) Essie did a very good job there. 😀GERPOL Manidrawback stamping like that is – the flag is only correct like this. But hey. Had different plans settled for that  – next game. If anyone is wondering about the ring:  Chao & Eero. GERPOL HandAnd now I have to go – fingers crossed and stuff 🙂

Some of you might have noticed. If not – it is again Soccer time: Euro 2016. Congratulation – obviously you missed all the Fanstuff like toiletpaper and stuff. Anyway – I don’t have to buy that stuff. Like back in 2014 it is a good opportunity to paint the nails in the colors of the german flag 🙂 – Here you can see all my flag/soccer related Manicures – at the moment only available in German – working on that 🙂

And today for the first game of the German team against the ukraine I put that on my nails

Essie Resort Collection 2016

Hi, we just ignore the fact that I haven’t posted in a month. I just asking myself – where did the time go? Anyway back to the topic Essie LE 😀 Yes – after the LE is before the next LE. (I’ve ignored the retro revival LE – But sooner or later there will be a post on them) And now there will be the Resort Collection (yeah – in Germany we’re a bit off/late/whatever. This LE has four colors (phew – only four) And before I type on and on I just show you some pictures. In case you’re wondering – yes – these aren’t the EU Version with the wide brush but the US Version with the small brush but hey – not a problem. Two Layers and I’m done.

Essie - Resort 2016

Essie – Deli dance

There is no more Barbie then this 🙂 Two Layers and the Polish is perfect. Well what should I say – Pink 🙂 some time later I thought – well – let’s do some stamping. I used the Pet’la Plate – Mente and Colour alike B. a Rudolph.Essie - Resort 2016 Delhi Dance Essie - Resort 2016 Delhi Dance Stamping Essie - Resort 2016 Delhi Dance Stamping Hand

Essie – Going guru

I have to say – this was the polish I was sure I want to get. Sometimes it i hard to be a rainbowy girl. Life would be easier if I just like purple 😀 But hey – opaque in two coats and not streaky or patchy.Essie Resort 2016 Going Guru Essie Resort 2016 hand

Essie – namas-stay the night

Blue – oh yes –  Essie Blue Victim – gotta get them all 🙂 Same here – opaque in 2 layers – I did a small stamping with Bundlemonster – BM-XL210 and Colour Alike B.an Aurora.Essie - Resort 2016 Nama-stay the nightThe last Polish of the Resort Collection is taj-ma-haul but I think that would mix up with my skintone  so I didn’t get it.

If you want to see the color just have a look here.

Did you guys get any of the colors? Or where you more like ‘meh not this time’?

Inglot – 694

Maybe you’ve seen it on Instagram. Recently Inglot opened a little Store in Nuremberg – and of course I had to visit. The shop is not directly in the inner city, but if you know your way around that is no problem (Kurt Schuhmacher Str. 8).
First I checked the Website to see which products may be interesting – and of course I checked the Nailpolish. The Color selection is awesome, but online there was nothing standing out. But live in the store:

Inglot - 694 Bottle

Then I was standing in the store – a small one, but the colors. *phew* The nice employees were very kind and loved to explain all the different products – and that pink Neon Pigment – just wow.
I also take a look at the nailpolishes and then I saw that one polish. Love at first sight. I swatched the polish and it was decided (oh an the 10% off helped).
If searched my collection but didn’t find anything close to the Inglot – 694 blue-blurple

Here a small comparison with colors from my collection:

Vergleiche
fltr: Inglot – 694, Opi – Tomorrow never die, Astor – Berry Cocktail, China Glaze – Bizarre Blurple, Essie – Midnight Cami, China Glaze – Tempest

Of course I had to use the polish back home.
First finger – first layer – streaky – not so good
Second finger – better
And after the second layer it is simply perfection. *drool*
Inglot - 694 Mani1 Inglot - 694 Mani Bottle Inglot - 694 Mani Bottle4 Inglot - 694 Mani Bottle1 Inglot - 694 Hand Inglot - 694 Hand

Things you shouldn’t do:
Use the Ünt – Peel Off base and no topcoat – the next morning the polish already started crackling.
So I removed the mani uses Essie – help me grow and used the Inglot polish again. For finish the Essie – Gel setter. And this combination just stays on the nails – just some minor tipwear.

 

I really fell in Love with the polish.
And for the fun of it – that is how the beauty looks mattified 🙂

Essie – Eternal Love – Bridal LE 2016

I just discovered a new display filled with the polishes from the Eternal Love Collection. And I have to admit I completely missed out this Limited Edition. And I couldn’t find any swatches online. That is why I  sit down yesterday and swatched all the polishes.

The Collection includes 6 Polishes. Compared to the last years Bridal LE, which included a lot of sheer polishes, we have only two sheer polishes this year. And there is also a fantastic one coater. Colorwise Essie did not reinvent the wheel but remember – Bridal is not supposed to be a neon paintball party.  Let’s start with the Swatches. I also searched in my Essie Collection for Dupes or similar colors. And I also did a little Stamping Experiment with the polishes.

coming together

Here we have the first of the sheer polishes.
After the first Layer it doesn’t look like there is any polish on your nails. The second Layer is better and after the third layer I really liked how the polish looked on my fingers (3 layers are the maximum I use) In the End you have a pink without the white tone.

passport to happiness

One of the Colorpops in this LE. You could make this polish cover in One Coat but usually I use two coats to make get an even result. I would call this color a muted mint with an amazing green shimmer which is still visible on the Nails. Sometimes the shimmer gets lost on the nails – not with this color.

steal his name

The second candidate of the Sheer polishes. Other than with “coming together” you can see the polish on the nails after the first layer.  After the second Layer the color gets more intense but after the third Layer the color and result is really beautiful – a  rose-peach tone. I also had no issues while painting my nails – no streaking whatsoever.

groom service

A beautifil solid Purple, also coverage would be possible if you use a slightly thicker coat. This is the second color pop of the LE but regarding all the polishes this collection contains a bit boring. Sure it is beautiful but there is no shimmer just a simple purple. I had no issues painting my nails – no streaks and in two thin layers the result is fine.

between the seats

From the first look you think “Urban Jungle” and  I can tell – they are very close. the Coverage is slightly better with “between the seats” But als usual I used two thin coats.

mrs always-right

Wow… just WOW. This is a really stunning Onecoater. And I am a bit head over heels. A beautiful terracotta red, slightly pinkish. Painting is a dream. you really need only one coat. At first look in the display I was like “Ok – Essie is good with red – here we have another one” bit this one – beside the one coat fact – I don’t have any Essie red in my collection coming close to this one. On the Pictures it is again two thin coats.

comparisons

Now – to help you decide some other colors from Essie to compare if you need one of the polishes.

V_Coming_together
from top to bottom: Romper room, coming together, I pink I can, groove is in the heart
V_between_the_seats
from top to bottom: Wrap me up, between the seats, urban jungle

Stamping

After realizing that Mrs always-right is a onecoater I had to test the Limited Editon if they are usable for stamping. Of course without the sheer polishes.
And yes – they are working. Basecolor Mrs always-right and ring finger “between the seats”

Essie Bridal LE / Eternal Love 2016 Stamping

index finger: passport to happiness
middle finger: between the seats
ring finger: mrs always-right
pinkie finger: groom service

Of course the colors don’t work that good on a dark base but hey, we all know the struggle stamping with lighter colors over dark base, and for that the result is very good

conclusion

Colorwise not that suprising, but what really got me was “mrs always-right” I mean – the name alone ^^ and then a one coater. All of the polishes were easy to apply, I had no problems with streaking, the coverage of the non sheer polishes is awesome.

Did you get any of the LE polishes?
