[blogger cooperation] 4th Advent nail design

Good evening and happy 4th Advent to everyone.

4th Advent

My little Blogger Cooperation with Jule from JulchensTraumwelt is already over, which means Christmas is right around the corner. Did you already decorate your Christmas Tree? I sure did a few weeks ago.
Anyway, what better theme could we pick then the lovely Christmas Tree itself. Since I won’t get much presents this year I also decided to at least draw on some colorful packages for myself.

I hope you enjoy it.

What I used?


  • Manhattan – Glitter Effect nail polish – Jungle Gem
  • Ciaté – PP067 regatta
  • Ciaté – PP099 espadrilles
  • ORLY – What’s the Password?



As you cans see, I mixed up the colors pretty well, always using a different polish for the package itself and the ribbon.
For the Christmas Tree I used Manhattans Jungle Gem and some loose silver and smaller red hexa particles. That’s basically it.
Keep a still hand and be patient. After you are done, seal the design in with a clear fast drying top coat.

I hope you like this little fun design. I will be back on Wednesday and hope you have a nice Sunday.

If you would give the design a try, I would love to see you re-creations with the hashtag #jman2014

Have a great Sunday.



Mara’s Birthday nail art month – DAY 8

Mara's Birthday nail art month


Good evening lovelies,

today I have a rather simple nail design for you. I decided for yet another french manicure variation, this time in glitter green with gold studs.
This time I basically only used one polish and to get a more opaque result, a bit green polish as a base.

What I used? Manhattan’s 005 – Jungle Gem

I think it is not that difficult to guess what I did or how I did this. It is super simple.
You can either hand paint the tips or use french nail sticker to give you a clean edge.

Apply one coat of green polish, let it dry and apply two coats of Jungle Gem.
When this is dry apply a clear topcoat one nail at a time at place the studs on the line of the french tip.

That is all.

I really like it, especially since I am a huge fan of different french manicures.

Let me know what you think.
