[sponsored] collaboration with Amicella.de & FABY

Good evening everyone,

today I would like to talk about my cooperation with Amicella and FABY nails for the new Cate Blanchett movie Carol.

Amicella featured a few 50ies nail designs today, which I created and which were inspired by Carol. FABY nails was also involved and sponsored the nail polishes I used for the designs. If you would like to read the article (german) online please visit Amicella.de

Mara’s Birthday nail art month – DAY 13

Mara's Birthday nail art month

DAY 13

Good evening Bae’s,

back to crazy popping colors? Keep on reading / scrolling, because that’s what I have for you today.

Here is what I used:

  • Ciaté – PP065 – big yellow taxi
  • Essence – show your feet – 27 electric blue
  • ORLY – BAKED – Tropical Pop
  • Faby – 201 – the venus’mantle
  • Catrice – green

On each nail paint a different colored tip, not horizontal, but across the nail. After you are done with all nails, apply a coat of fast drying top coat.

Now take a dotting tool, a stamping plat and apply on drop of color onto the stamping plat, pick it up with the dotting tool and dot along the edge of the colored tip. Pick the colors you want to use before you start. This way you won’t use the same color for the dots as you used for the base.

It’ just simple as that.

How do you like it?

Hey lovelies,

I am so excited about today’s post!

Last week I got a package from FABY Germany. It included three polishes and a nice info brochure on their polishes.

They included (from left to right), 201 the venus’mantle, 301 not to miss a trick! and the clear base and top coat 401 double.

I also love the brochure, it show all the awesome polishes they offer. I am totally in love with the eclectic collections and the Man collection! Oh these colors are so pretty!

For my Birthday next month I would love all of them please haha :D

Let’s review the polishes.

201 the venus’mantle 

This is a pretty orange with a slight pearl shimmer which makes it very pretty. The application was easy, thanks to the slightly wide brush. The color spreads evenly and the edges are clean. I applied two coats and got an opaque finish. Apply a clear top coat and you are good to go :)

I can’t say much about the duration at the moment, but I will let you know later.

301 not to miss a trick!

Here we go with another pink polish :D
We all know I am not a big fan of pink, but you can count on me giving an honest review about the quality of the polish even if I don’t wear too much pink. It applied just as evenly as the other one so I think the quality for the Faby polishes is the same for all of their colors.

The clear base/top coat I haven’t used yet, but I try it soon.

I like the quality of the Faby polishes and I like the brush. Since they are a bit on the pricey side (about 13 euro) I was surprised about the low quality feeling cap of the bottle. I have no idea if this might be an expensive packing, but it feels like a cap from a 1 euro polish. The quality of the bottle and the polish is great though, don’t get me wrong please!

Do you have experience with Faby polishes you could share? I would love to hear your opinion.

Have a great night

Mara
