New Frankenpolishes

Yesterday I randomly decided to create a polish. While working on it I made 4 instead of 1 :P A few weeks ago there was a Dutch tv host wearing green jeans that looked so glowing. And I was like; I want a polish in that color! A week later she was wearing another jeans in orange, but it seemed from the same brand. Also never seen that color in a polish. So here are my Frankens.

This first one is a neon bubblegum pink. But I decided to name it Hot Flamingo :P I'm not good with how much I used of what polish, but it was about 3/5 Catrice Sweets For My Sweets, 1/5 China Glaze Shocking Pink and 1/5 Color Club Warhol. This is 2 coats and no topcoat.

This second one looks so much nicer in real life. It's lighter and looks glowing. I named this one Dancing On The Sun. It was half a bottle of Catrice Snow and I randomly put in China Glaze Sun Worshiper and China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. I really love this one! This is 3 coats and no topcoat.

This 3rd one is my favorite and on Instagram it got a lot of likes :) I named it Don't Call Me Apple. Just like Dancing On The Sun it's really glowing and so pretty! I used half a bottle of China Glaze Snow and put in China Glaze Four Leaf Clover, China Glaze Sun Worshiper and Color Club Twiggie. This is 2 coats and no topcoat.

This last one isn't really what I hoped it would be, but I still like it, since I have nothing like it. Seriously. I named it As High As A Cloud. It's a beautiful sky blue. I used Rimmel London Sky High, Color Club Age Of Aquarius and another Color Club that I can't remember. This is 2 coats and no topcoat.

I hope to be frankening soon again, because I really like these!

What do you think of these and which one is your favorite? :)

Metallic Zebra Nails

You might think; I've seen these before. And I was thinking the same when I did these! And then I found out I already did these :P But this time I used different colors :)

As my base color I used Dance Baby from China Glaze's Electropop collection. A collection that I was not interested in at all. One day I was just like; what the heck? So I ordered it. I really don't have anything like it!

For the stamping I used China Glaze Emotion from the Romantic collection. I've been looking for a nice metallic pink, but this one isn't IT yet. I ordered Color Club Hot Like Lava and I hope that's an even nicer one!

The imageplate I used is m69 from Konad. I just love that zebra stamp, can't help it :P

One thing I wanted to know; I've had a message on my screen that my blog has malware on it or something and that it came from someone else's blog. Also when I just went to my dashboard the same message would pop up. If you still see that message coming on your screen please let me know on Twitter. But I hope it's fixed :)

Milani - Digital

Today I'm showing Digital. Digital is a dusty pink filled with holographic glitter. Everytime I looked at the bottle I didn't expect it to be this holographic. Even without sunlight or a lamp shining on your nails it's really holographic. I almost got away with 1 coat, but did need two. I love this one!

And yesterday I got my tooth pulled. I've had my wisdom tooth pulled like 2 years ago and I had no pain afterwards. This time it does hurt a bit. Like an annoying kind of pain. I actually don't know if it's my (missing) tooth that hurts or my cheek xD

China Glaze - Love's A Beach

I'm showing you Love's A Beach from China Glaze's Summer Neons collection. I wasn't really liking the polishes because of the shimmers, but I decided to get some of them anyway. LOVE them! This picture is taken after a day of wear so I'm sorry for the tipwear.

Love's A Beach is a neon pink and opaque in just 1 coat. It has a nice shimmer in it, but it's not purple like the picture shows. It's more of a light pink shimmer. The wear time of this is great too, because I wore it for 2,5 days and no chips, while my polish usually chips really quick.

Tropical Gradient

A few weeks ago it was very hot in the country. As much as I hate hot weather, I do like that I can wear my bright polishes. I first wanted to make rainbow nails, but I didn't have the right color green, so I went for this tropical gradient.

I started with 2 coats of a white polish to make the neons pop even more. With a make-up sponge I made the gradient. For the pink I either used Color Club Warhol OR China Glaze Pool Party, for the orange Color Club Wham! Pow! and for the yellow Color Club Almost Famous.

Sadly, this blurry picture was the best my camera could get. If you have these polishes yourself you should definitely try this one out to see how awesome it looks in real life :)

Blue Ombre Nails

Today I have another blue manicure for you. I did a blue ombre today, because I had to go somewhere quickly today, so went for this simple thing. I've done blue ombre nails once before, I've done a pink ombre once before and I've done ombre paint drips.

From pinky to thumb I used Color Club Chelsea Girl, Sinful Colors Why Not?, Orly Blue Collar, China Glaze Bahamian Escape and Essie Borrowed & Blue.

Chelsea Girl is pretty much the same as China Glaze Ride The Waves. It felt like 3/4 jelly and 1/4 creme :P If you had to pick between these two colors go for Ride The Waves. Here I used 3 coats of Chelsea Girl and it's still not opaque.

Jelly Sandwich - Blue Waves

Well hello blog world. I haven't seen you in a while. Well, you haven't seen me for a while. Just busy, doing my thing. But, I have a week off now and I hope that one thing I'll be doing this week is blogging. Or at least try to make mani's for my blog :)

So today I'm back with a Jelly Sandwich! I love to do these, even though I don't have a lot of jelly polishes. I added a new jelly to my collection this week and decided a Jelly Sandwich had to be made.

I'm wearing 2 coats of China Glaze Ride The Waves from the Summer Neons collection. A royal blue jelly. Then I went over with one coat of Essence Blue Addicted and another coat of Ride The Waves. The sandwich is completed! :)

What do you think of this Jelly Sandwich? Let me know!
