Mara’s Birthday nail art month – DAY 18

Mara's Birthday nail art month

DAY 18

Hey everyone,

did you see me crazy colorful dotticure from Mara’s Birthday Nail Art Month – DAY 2?
Today I have a more discreet one for you, using only pastel colors.

Here is what I used:

  • Ciaté – PP151 Loop the Loop
  • Ciaté – PP104 pepperminty
  • Maybelline – Colorshow – LE Bleached Neons – 241 sun flare, 242 coral heat, 243 tropink, 244 chic chartreuse
  • ORLY – harmonious mess
  • O.P.I. – my boyfriend scales walls

For this manicure all you need are the different colors and a dotting tool. Just like the other mani I already showed you, start dotting the colors onto the nail. You can mix up bigger and smaller dots if you want. I only used the end creating bigger dots. Start with one color dotting away on each nail. After that use the next color and continue until there are no blank spots left.

This is without a top coat


This is with O.P.I.’s matte top coat


I like the pastel version of this manicure better than the colorful one.

How do you feel about it?




Mara’s Birthday nail art month – DAY 11

DAY 11

Hello lovelies,

we are already at day 11 of my Birthday Nail Art Month, where I show you a new nail design everyday.

Today I choose three discreet colors, pastel colors. Two of them are from Maybelline’s LE Bleached Neons.

Here is what I used:

  • Maybelline Colorshow – Bleached Neons – 241 sun flare
  • ORLY – Harmonious Mess
  • Maybelline Colorshow – Bleached Neons – 244 chic chartreuse

What I did is easy. First apply two coats of the base color, harmonious mess, and let it dry completely.
For the next step you can either use french tip stickers to get a clean result or, if you are used to it like I am, free hand paint the orange tip (across, not horizontal) using Maybelline’s Bleached Neon 241 sun flare.




You could stop with the above step or use Maybelline’s 244 chic chartreuse and a dotting tool to dot on the line of the tip.
I only applied one coat of dots, but think two coats would have been better.





Apply a clear top coat and you are good to go.

What do you think?
Let me know in the comments :)



Sunday Mani – fifteen – bleached neons with studs

Hey everyone,

since I showed you the bleached neons LE from Maybelline this week I went ahead and did a nail design with neon studs on them.
I hope you like the design.

Again, here are the colors from the bleached neons LE. For this manicure I used the green one, 244 chic chartreuse.IMG_0381

For this manicure I used the green one, 244 chic chartreuse. I applied two coats and let them dry properly.
In the meantime I picked out the studs I wanted to use.


I got these studs at a shop called Claire’s, I showed them to you in one of my HAULy friday’s.

When the polish was dry I worked on one nail at a time, applying a clear polish and added the studs.







I went a bit crazy, using different colored studs on each nail and applied them in a different way as well.

How do you like this combination?
