Matching Manicure – Flowers Spring

Flowers

Lately, I really like when I see stamping with holographic polishes. I thought that the more expensive polish is, the bigger is a chance that it will be good for stamping, so I mostly tried with China Glaze and Layla polishes but it was unsuccessful. Since there were few sunny days in a row, I paid more attention to my holo polishes and remembered that I have a whole Perfect Holographic collection (yes, I forgot about it). It worked on the first try and I stamped flowers which were the theme for this week Matching Manicure.

Spring

This week, the theme for Matching Manicure is spring. Since we did flower last week and I already planned pastel colors for next week, it was really hard to think of something to draw. They say that one swallow doesn’t make a spring, but I guess that seven swallows and one stork do :).

Busy Bee

I have been a really busy bee today, so I decided to show you new water decals that arrived from Born Pretty Store. A sheet full of bees.

Instructions for use are on the back of the sheet with decals, but, since I didn’t really understand them (obviously Google Translate had something to do with it), you can say that I followed steps 1-3 and they just applied top coat.

I also wanted to try out one more technique that I saw on some blogs, but I couldn’t remember a name of it or how to do it. The only thing I remember is that included use of business cards, so I tried to make squares on half-dry nail polish using an old business card. It’s not perfect but it still looks almost like a bee hive.

May Twin Post–Sunflowers

We are almost at the end of the month May, so its time for another Twin Post. This month, my “twin” is Jessica from Be Happy and Buy Polish blog.

The theme that we got was Sunflowers, and we had an idea to make the orange-yellow vertical gradient, on accent nail to make one big sunflower with leaves, and on other nails small sunflowers. It all sounded ideal, but unfortunately, you can’t even see my gradient. Big sunflower is bigger than I thought it would be, and there are too many small sunflowers. Still, I love how we draw everything :).
I used: Essence – Doc, the balm – Mellow Yellow and acrylic paints.

What do you think? Be sure to check out Jessica’s blog and also check out what was other themes this month on links under this post.

Last few days, sky was crying above Balkan countries, and now lots of people are crying. A lot of them lost their lives, their homes and everything they owned. Parts of our countries have been hit by the worst floods ever recorded.
You can feel the solidarity everywhere. People from the whole world are helping. Evacuated people are now in shelters, and more are being evacuated right now. They need food, water, blankets, and clothes.

I’m gonna let pictures speak for themselves. The situation is really serious.
