I wanted to say thank for you encouraging words on here and on my facebook. That really made me feel better and more relaxed about wanting to improve my Blog right away. I will take things step by step.
Today I have a really fun nail design for you. You might have felt my love for Japan, my friends even call me Ninja girl sometimes^^
So what did I do today? Right, Ninja nails! :D
What I used:
Maybelline Colorshow – 677 blackout
Ciaté – PP017 boudoir
KIKO – 508
Essence LE Superheroes – 04 super, man!
O.P.I. top coat and matte top coat
At first I painted all nails, except my middle finger, black. The middle finger was painted red. I let everything dry and started using KIKO – 508 to paint on their skin – eye are. Remember, ninja are dressed totally in black and all you can see are their eyes. Let that dry as well and in the meantime use a thin striper to right “Ninja” in silver on your thumb nail and draw a silver 手裏剣 shuriken (ninja star) on your ring finger.. When the faces are dry you can use the striper to draw on the head bans. The black nails get a red one and the red nail gets a black head band. For the red head band you might need two coats. Now dot on the tiny eyes :)
For my right hand I decided to do more black and silver, because I just love the combination and I wanted to have more 手裏剣 action going on.
I applied black polish as a base, used O.P.I.’s matte top coat to matte-fy it and let that dry. Then I used the silver Essence polish again to draw on different silver shapes. That is it :)
Hod do you like today’s design? I hope you enjoy it.
here we go with the actual Birthday Nail Art post.
Today I have nothing crazy for you, but I used the only Maybelline Acid polish I was able to get a few weeks ago and mixed it up with the matte top coat from O.P.I. and Astor’s “play the graffiti” and “game of graphics” on the accent nail.
I like the manicure. I think I even like the acid washed polish better with a matte top coat.

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.
