Vintage Peacock Nails

I just couldn't wait to show you what I did to yesterdays polish, By K Freezing Fog! I stamped a graphic peacock pattern in gold on it and finish it off with a light pink stone to each nail.

The base is, as said, By K Freezing Fog and the peacock pattern is from MoYou London plate Tropical Collection-05. The gold polish used is Good As Gold from Essie.

I can't tell you how pleased I am with this manicure! It feels so vintage and I can so imagine it to a vintage bride! It's tone-in-tone but you can still see the pattern clearly and it has a sort of ivory feeling to it. Soft and romantic!

For this kind of nail art By K's Freezing Fog is the perfect soft base!

By K Freezing Fog - swatches and review

Hi friends! I'm back! Have you missed me? ;) My plan is to do a few posts a month - if I feel like it ;)

I'm starting with a new polish from By K which will be released in the beginning of May. The whole upcoming collection by By K has a flight theme and this one is called Freezing Fog. This polish is flirting with the 70's with its pearl finish and I liked it more than I first thought.

Surprisingly opaque. Two coats is enough but since I'm quite fussy I added a third. Still good compared to other pearl polishes!


GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Pearl.

Number of coats: Three.

Formula: Good! A bit runny so watch out for cuticle flooding. Very easy to clean up though!

Brush: Medium straight cut.

Top Coat: Yes. 

Grade: 3+/5

Pearl finish isn't really my thing but if you like the upcoming 70's style this is the polish for you! I can also imaging this polish on a bride for a wedding. AND it's a perfect canvas for nail art. Just wait and see what I did to this polish…! ;)

Blog break

Just a short post to tell you that I'm going on a blog break on an indefinite period.

My life is both crazy busy and chaotic right now and blogging feels more like a must than a pleasure. A distinct sign to take a time-out.

My love for polishes is very much alive though and I will keep doing manicures and nail arts! If you still want to see them and comment on them you can find me at Instagram and Facebook.

At Instagram I'm @jezzlan and I've got my own page at Facebook called Little Miss Nailpolish.
I'm also on Twitter as @littlemissnailp but I'm best reached on the other two.
I really hope to see you there!

I won't say goodbye, instead I say - see you! Until then, take care my friends! <3

Purple Holo Leaves Manicure

The theme for today's Nail Art Sunday is "Longing".

To me this manicure represents fall and after a long hot summer I'm now actually longing for fall with its crisp air and bright colors. I also find it very cozy to light some candles, snuggle under a fleece blanket and have a cup of hot tea :)

The base is By K Lavender Blue and then I've stamped on a leaf pattern with the stunning purple holo Wild At Heart from Color Club. I used a plate from MoYou London called Mother Nature Collection-03. To break up the purple domination I added some green dots with the magic Reclaim from Nubar.

I'm very happy with this manicure and I got a lot of attention because of it too :)

Gold Fish Nails

A quick stampicure for you today :)

The base is the beautiful By K Blue Lagoon and then I've stamped on a fish pattern with MoYou London plate Sailor Collection-05 and By K Copper Gold.

The result is a subtle gold fish pattern on a glimmering blue base. Beautiful in its own way ;)
