Mara’s Birthday nail art month – DAY 10

Mara's Birthday nail art month

DAY 10

Good evening everyone,

after all these colorful nail arts I wanted to show you a black and white one today.

For this manicure you only need a black and white polish, as well as a dotting tool and thin brush.
Here is what I used:

  • O.P.I.’s Alpine Snow
  • Manhattan’s black polish

I think there is not much explaining needed. You just start with two coats of whatever color, let it dry and paint the pattern in using the opposite color.

You can do many different patterns. This time I decided for stripes and dots.





How do you like it?

Good evening everyone,

today I have a very colorful  nail design for you again.

For this manicure you need several different colors. Here is what I used:




  • Astor – 202
  • Catrice – green
  • Essence – Show your feet – 27 electric blue
  • Ciaté – PP065 – big yellow taxi
  • Ciaté – PP066 – headliner
  • Ciaté – PP106
  • ORLY – Baked – Tropical pop
  • p2 – 999 – aloha dreams
  • Ciate – PP017 – boudoir
  • any black and white polish (I used O.P.I.’s Alpine Snow and Manhattan’s black polish)


The base for this nail design is white, so I started applying two coats of Alpine Snow and let it dry.
After that I took a stamping plate and applied 2 drops of the first color (for example tropical pop) and painted a small triangle with my self-cut nail brush. After that I cleaned the brush, took the next color and applied that on the nail as well. Keep on doing that with all the different colors on all your nails. If some of the polishes need a second coat, apply it and let everything dry. After all colors are dry take the black polish and paint thin lines around the shapes you just painted. Let it dry and apply a clear top coat to seal in the design.







You might need some patience and time to do this nail design, but I think it is worth it.

How do you like it?

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.
