Candy Cane Nails

Hi lovelies,

This was a quick stamping I did last week, because I knew I was gonna photograph this with a candy cane ice cream (at the end of the post). I did it for fun, so the lines on each nails are perfectly aligned. I thought about doing a water marble, but soon realised all my white polishes are almost dry, not exactly good for water marbling.


I started with a white base, then added the strips using Powder Perfect Fire Engine Red stamping polish and Bundle Monster BM-423. The full review of the stamping polish is in previous post.

Skateboard Inspired Chevron Nails

Hi lovelies,

I've recently got into skateboarding, and I was so in love with my new board that I decided to do a mani inspired by it. Basically, I transferred the chevron design on the board to my nails. 


The nude colour I used as base was a polish I made a long time ago for the disney princess Pocahontas challenge, the wood texture were added using OPI You Don't Know Jacques and Bundle Monster plate BM-608, and the chevrons were created with Lime Crime Once in a Blue Mousse and Parfait Day.



I altered the colours on my left and right hand.

Powder Perfect Fast Drying Topcoat and Christmas Stamping Polish Review

Hi lovelies,

I have two Christmas nail art to share with you today, with the review of two stamping polishes and a topcoat by Powder Perfect. 

First we have Fire Engine Red Stamping Polish, a red creme polish. I used it with BM-S215 for the Christmas sweater look.




The topcoat I've been using over the nail art and swatches lately was Lightning Lady Fast Drying Top Coat. It dries super fast, the manis were set within minutes, no shrinkage so far. Since it's still quite new, the consistency is thin and the application was a breeze, I hope it won't thicken up like my other fast drying topcoats.



The other Christmas stamping polish we have is Metallic Green Stamping Polish, a deep metallic green. For this mani I paired it with Powder Perfect Golden Stamping Polish and Merry Little Christmas and Messy Mansion MM02 plate.





The new stamping polishes and topcoat are available from Powder Perfect's Australian site and international site.  Don't forget to use my code 'ERINSTAMP' for a 10% discount on all stamping products.  This code is valid until January 31st 2017.

Powder Perfect Christmas Trio

Hi lovelies,

Today I have the Christmas Trio by Powder Perfect for you. This is a collection of three gorgeous polishes, which are perfect for the holidays, now let's see the swatches.

Sophisticated Santa is a decadent warm red holographic polish that shimmers with gold and silver highlights. The swatches were done with two thin coats of SS and no topcoat.




Sexy Santa is a rich maroon holographic polish with a pink undertone. I thought it looked quite similar with Sophisticated Santa from the bottle, but this one really was a lot sexier, and its holo effect was a bit more subtle as well. I used two coats of Sexy Santa for the swatches without a topcoat.




Merry Little Christmas is the perfect green Christmas glitterbomb with several shades of green and silver glitters throughout. I used two coats of MLC for the swatches with a coat of Lightning Lady Fast Drying Top Coat by Powder Perfect, as the combination of fine glitters dried out to a sand paper texture.

I am using Lightning Lady in more of my manis, to get a comprehensive review on it.




With the holidays approaching soon, I will post more holiday spirited nail art for you, stay tuned ; )

These polishes are available now individually or as a trio from both the Powder Perfect Australian and US sites.

Rocker Style Holographic Nails

Hi lovelies,

This was something I came up with randomly as I was trying out one of the older polishes I have, Layla Hologram Effect Flash Black.


Flash Black is a charcoal/black holo. I don't know why I didn't try this sooner, it has probably the most strongest holo effect I've ever seen, and the application was like a breeze.


I used BM-602 and Powder Perfect black stamping polish for the stamping nail art.

Grace-full Nail Polish Christmas Collection Part II

Hi lovelies,

This is the part 2 of the christmas collection by Grace-full Nail Polish, something even more exciting than the first few polishes ; ) If you are interested in the first part of the collection please see my previous post.

Let's start with my favourite, Christmas Eve Magic, which is a very dark navy with a linear holo base and packed with holo flakies. 


The swatches shown were two easy coats with topcoat, you can see the depth of flakies if you take a closer look on the nails, a very attractive one indeed.




Pavlova Roll is a dark berry jelly with holo flakies, two thin coats again, the application was smooth and I loved the squishy look.



The next two are very opaque, I only needed one coat each for full coverage, though I used two to see if there was a difference. Cherry Best Friends is a super glowy bright red holo with gold flecks throughout.




Family Traditions is a deep coral holo with gold flecks throughout.



The Christmas collection is now available from Grace-full Nail Polish's online store.
