Double Design: studs and flowers

This month Monique and I both sort of lost track of time for our 'Double Design'. Why do you only have 28 days, Februari? Anway, let's just pretend it's the 29th of Februari today and that we are right on time with our Double Design for this month! The theme is 'Floral'.

What Dutch bloggers wear

Hi guys! I thought it would be fun to show other people's nails on this blog. I sometimes do my friends' nails and show them to you, but today I present you something different: what Dutch bloggers wear. I asked some of my fellow Dutchies and bloggers that I met on the forum http://forum.bybeautybloggers.nl/ to share their NOTD!

Orange is our national colour, and our flag is red-white-blue!

Silver Stamped Flowers

I discovered something about myself: I suck at stamping big images on my nails. But I'm practicing and guess what, this design turned out rather nice!

Lovely layering: Glittery Elderberry

Hi everyone! It's time for MORE BARRY M! I just can't get enough (can you? - if so, I'm sorry. I still have one other polish to try out). Today I proudly present: Elderberry. This polish has such a peculiar greyish blue colour, it's very interesting!

Roses for Valentine's

Hi everyone! It's been a couple of days since I last posted anything. Things are getting quite busy around here with studying/work and a secret project (how exciting!). I hope I can still find enough time to paint my nails and blog about them :).


Today I want to show you these that nails I did for my second guest post over at everythingnice.nl. This time it is a tutorial for super cute (if I may say so) roses nail art. For the tutorial you can head over to Everything Nice, here I'll just show you the pics of the end result.

Swatch: Polish Alcoholic Calumma

Today I'm showing you my very first indie nail polish. I really wanted to try indies and some nail bloggers over at the Hobby Polish Bloggers group on Facebook (join it if you want to, it's great!) recommended Polish Alcoholic. Fellow Dutchie Sabrina is the owner of both the Polish Alcoholic blog and Etsy shop. All her polishes are 5-free.


I chose to order Polish Alcoholic Calumma. Google taught me that calumma is a genus of chameleons. I think it's pretty obvious why Sabrina chose this name:

Calumma is multichromatic! This beauty is the chameleon of the polish world.
