Autumn dotticure

On top of By K Pull Up I did a autumn inspired dotticure using only By K polishes :)

I used the following polishes: By K OY-MAK (bright red), By K The Sky is the Limit (dark red) By K Jump and Slide (brown red) and By K Bravo-Yankie-Kilo (gold).

I'm really pleased with the result! I like the colors and the diagonal rainbow feeling to it. A perfect autumn manicure :)

By K Pull Up - swatches and review

It's time for the last polish from By K's summer collection! This is Pull Up, a grayish mauve with a fantastic formula! It was so easy to apply that I could have done it whilst sleeping! ;)

This is two coats but one coat is definitely possible if you do a little bit of a thicker coat. The formula has the most perfect thickness/thinness and it's very very self leveling! Just perfect and the best formula of the whole collection. It reminds me of the early By K creams. They had perfect formulas too and most of them were one coaters.

The color of Pull Up shifts a bit depending on light so today I'll show you two pictures :)
As always with By K's polishes they are 5-free, vegan, cruelty free and allergy certified.


Type of polish: Cream.

Number of coats: Two, but there is definitely a one coater possibility!

Formula: Excellent! Very self leveling!

Brush: Thin straight cut.

Top Coat: Yes. 

Grade: 4+++/5

The only reason Pull Up doesn't get a full mark from me is that I'm not a mauve lover. I like grey but this has a bit too much purple in it for my taste. However, it's a beauty and as I've said now like hundred times, the formula is to die for! ;) A perfect autumn polish. I did a fantastic nail art on it which I'll show you soon. :)

Floral nails

Even though gorgeous By K Jump and Slide looks totally stunning on its own I wanted to add some nail art to it. Being a florist I couldn't resist to stamp on some flowers :)

The plate used is MoYou London Princess plate 14 and the pink metallic polish is Kiko #620. To cheer it up even more I added a pink dot in each flower with By K Camelia Rose.

I really like the result! The pattern doesn't hide the beautiful base and I like the childish look of it :)

By K Jump and Slide - swatches and review

Wow! I'm in love with this squishy dark red jelly! It's so beautiful and shiny! This is Jump and Slide from By K.

Since it's a jelly it will never be truly opaque but I don't mind. Because in return I get an incredible shine and squishiness! It's so vampy and elegant! Classic beauty at it's best!

This is three coats and the formula was great! It's also vegan, 5-free, certified cruelty free and allergy certified.


Type of polish: Jelly.

Number of coats: Three.

Formula: Very good! No complaints at all!

Brush: Thin straight cut brush.

Top Coat: Yes, but just as shiny without. 

Grade: 5+/5

This vampy red jelly will look good on both longer and shorter nails. It's released as an autumn polish but this classic color can be used all around if you ask me. A winner in my book!

Sea horse manicure

After enjoying By K's Turbulence for a few days I added a duo coloured stamping to it in form of cute little sea horses and sea grass.

Polishes used are Turquoise and Neon Blue, both from Mundo de Unas. The pattern is from MoYou London plate Sailor-05.

I wanted to match the turquoise shimmer with a marine pattern. I'm fairly happy with. Perhaps I should have chosen only one color for the stamping though.
Less is, after all, more :)

By K Turbulence - swatches and review

I love grey polishes and this one is no exception! This is Turbulence and it has an extra dimension to it, a turquoise shimmer which actually follows out on the nails! Beautiful!

This is two coats and the application was flawless as often with By K's polishes. I will use this polish often!

As always with By K's polishes, Turbulence is vegan, cruelty free, 5-free and allergy certified. Yay!

This is one of three polishes released by danish By K as a mini autumn collection. I will show you the other two soon!


Type of polish: Shimmer.

Number of coats: Two.

Formula: Excellent! So easy to apply!

Brush: Thin straight cut.

Top Coat: Yes. 

Grade: 5/5

A perfect grey with a shimmer twist! Lovely on its own and a great base for nail art!
