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 2

Mara's Birthday nail art month


Good evening bae’s,

welcome to the second day of my Birthday nail art month.

Today I wanted to show you a very colorful and fun nail design compared to yesterday’s simple glitter nail design.
This look was a lot of fun. It took a while but it was totally worth it.

Polishes I used



I used several different colors, trying to pick colors that are bright and without shimmer or glitter in them.

  • Astor – Fashion Studio – 202
  • Ciaté – PP060 – ditch the heels
  • Ciaté – PP065 – big yellow taxi
  • p2 – sea’ la vie – 030 navy
  • p2 – color victim – 999 aloha dreams
  • p2 – last forever – 230 hot tango
  • ORLY – BAKED – 20497 tropical pop

It is very easy to accomplish this look. All you need are the different colors and a dotting tool. I used the bigger end of the tool to get bigger dots. I also used the back of a stamping plat to drip on the polishes so I can dip in the dotting tool. Start using one color and keep dotting away. Place the dots on different parts of the nail but of course leave free space for the other colors. If you are done with one nail, do the next etc. until all nail are down using the first color. Now continue these steps with each color you picked. Fill out the blanks with the rest of the colors. When you are down your nails should look like this.




I know it is a crazy design and maybe not everyone’s favorite or wearable to any occasion, but I think it is really fun and different.
I really liked creating this design and it was very easy.

How do you like it?



Sunday Mani – seventeen – ombré dotticure – grey, blue, green

Hey lovelies,

I am still devastated about yesterday. As you know I was really looking forward to the World Cup match Ivory Coast vs. Japan.
I was sure that Japan would win this, but sadly Honda felt too safe after his first goal. At least it felt this way to me, he simply didn’t keep pushing and trying anymore. And as always with such behavior, the other team gets the chance to win, which is what happened.

I hope we will do better during the next 2 games and that we will at least make it to the next round.

Anyway, here is today’s Sunday Mani which I did with some of my new KIKO polishes.
I really like the result, I think the colors match perfectly.

What I used?

KIKO – 517 (base)


KIKO – 533 (dots)


KIKO – 532 (dots)


KIKO – 530 (dots)


stamping plat to spread the colors for the dotting tool and of course the dotting tool itself^^





I applied 2 coats of the base color, put on a fast drying top coat and waited about 10 minutes before I started dotting away^^
To get a nice and even dotting result, I started in the middle, placing 2 dots of each color, starting with the lightest. Then continued with the sides.
