My Vacation Nails

Before I went for the trip I made this mani which is absolutely suits my stretch floral pants (holding summer dress on these pictures lol~, talking about another piece of cloth) and travel backpack. I was so exciting to match all this details for my outfit. And this nail art is definitely brings everything together, wish I did the same pedicure as well lol~ Anyways, it is very simple mani again, just basic white polish for the background, a few layers of graffiti glitter polish (neon pink, neon green and white) and the water decals on top. Thats it, super simple, right?
Hope you like this design and give it a try :)
Thank you very much for taking time and stopping by~
Enjoy summer!
For the main nail art decorations I used this set of water decals, click HERE for direct link to the product. On the web-site it shows as a big sheet of water decals with 4 different styles without any numbers and when you buy it, you'll get only one of them, so make sure to clarify which one you'd like to get when placing order. Otherwise you will get the very first set. 
But this water decals are very nice quality, they easily un-sticks from the paper and opaque in color. Before use I suggest to cut off all the black frames because it will mess up the actual water decal design.

Arabesque Nails

For some reason this summer I really enjoy wearing different white clothes. And seems like my preference for nail art is white color also :) This week I have very simple yet looking fresh mani. I applied 2 layers of basic white polish, stamped silver design on and sealed everything with matte top coat. 

What do you like to wear on your nails this summer?
Hope you like this mani and give it a try!
Thank you very much for taking time and stopping by~
For this nail art design I used QA88 image plate, click HERE for direct link to the product. Unfortunately it get sold sometimes, and if you are really interested in this stamping plate you should look at web-site and it'll get in stock soon :) This is so awesome i.p. with one full detailed arabesque design. I've tested all different parts and this whole plate works so nice, it graved perfectly! I really am in love with this plate and next time I wanna try it for stamping decal technique as well.

Review: Stamping Image Plate Organizer

When I first saw this type of stamping image plate holder I just totally felt in love with it, right away! I was planning to buy one of this by myself anyways, but since I was asked if I wanna test out nail art products from Born Pretty store, I decided to get this one :) I have to say that I used it for quite a few days to understand for myself what I think about this i.p. organizer and how do I like it. Well, my first impression was absolutely exciting, I loved everything about it: the actual image plate storage idea, the bright pink color, good quality of the holder, etc. But after a while I began to realize that it's not that comfortable to use actually. First of all when I wanted to choose a plate for nail art I had to rotate it back and forth to find right plate because you just can't bend pocket with image plate in it. Also this particular organizer has only 12 double-sided pages = 24 pockets; which can hold only a certain part of my overall stamping plate collection. In my opinion this holder would works much better for beginners or for any sort of travel occasions when you don't have/need a lot of image plates and they are all organized and stay in one place.   

You can check more detailed review by clicking HERE. *This blog post doesn't have any affiliated links, I simply collected all information you might be interested in.* 

Like I said this holder contains 12 double-sided pages and all of them are attached to the iron nail in the bottom corner, so everything stays put together for sure.
Each pocket is 6cm x 6cm in size.
I filled in this whole organizer and each plate is easily go in and out without any problems. I like the quality of this holder, really well done!
I also took a few pictures to show how it looks form the top and from the side when it completely filled in with stamping plates.

What do you think about this stamping plate holder?
Do you already have one of this?
How do you like it?

Berry Love Nails + Small Beauty Haul

Hello everyone! This is pre-made blog post and right now I'm probably far-far away from Korea. Me and my kids are flying to my home-country to visit my mom and little sister. I've missed them so much and finally got a chance to meet them in real and not through the Skype. I will be gone untill the end of the August but I will be automatically update my blog as usual, once a week. 

Thank you very much for taking time and stopping by! 

Anyways, today I wanna share this very pink and super simple nail art with all of you~
1. Apply base coat to protect natural nails.
2. Apply cotton candy pink polish as main background color.
3. With a little bit darker pink striping polish make 3-4 stripes all over the nails.
4. Apply graffiti pink glitter polish.
5. Apply some cute water decals.
6. Add square neon orange stud on each nail.
7. Protect everything with a good layer of clear top coat.
I also bought a few beauty things from The Face Shop store. My little sister asked for double eye lid tapes and fake lashes. And I as well needed some make-up removing tissues, also bought Oil Cut Pore Powder Pact in NB23 with SPF25 PA++ and awesome graffiti glitter polish. 
*graffiti polishes closer look*
There was only 2 shades available of this particular type of polish and I bought both of them because it's sooo beautiful.
The pink one is in GLI010 맘에드는 형광핑크 (Lovely Fluorescent Pink) and the neon green is in GLI011 달콤한 형광그린 (Sweet Fluorescent Green). 
Not quite a haul but I recieved nail mail from Born Pretty store the other day. They've sent me QA88 i.p., stamping plate organizer and a set of cute butterfly water decals. I truely love all these items and for the next few blog posts I'll be share about each of them separately.

Kill "Un-Tried" Stash

My collection of un-tried polishes is growing and getting dusty on top of my table. I have to use each of them at least once so it can move into my actual nail polish stash. I challenged myself to try each and every un-tried polish before I could buy more and the first one is this beautiful blue Trendy Nails collection from The Face Shop. This one is in BL604 Electric Blue (일렉트릭 블루). I have 2 layers on with clear top coat. Perfect creme finish. Color on my nails looks exactly like in the bottle, awesome summer color :) Nice texture and really good brush. It also dries quite fast but it is just opened polish and I don't know how it will change after few more uses.
MODI Juicy Nails in Rubber Black (러버 블랙) #16. 2 layers on with clear top coat. Basic black color. Creme finish. Nice texture and opaqueness. Dries in normal time. No stain~ So sorry for the picture quality, it was no sunlight out there.
MODI Juicy Nails in #30 Orange Shock (오렌지 쇼크). 2 layers with regular top coat on. Neon orange polish with no glitters to it. A bit sheer texture and sort of damaged brush. But I still like the color, thinking of transfering this polish into another bottle with better brush.
Sorry for the picture quality again, it was no sunlight out there!
MODI polish in Bustier #79 (뷔스티에). 2 layers on with clear top coat. Such a unique combination of grey-ish brown polish and chunky green glitters. It applies very easily and in one application I can see lots of glitters on my nails :) When it completely dry I can feel some glitters in touch but overall I think the finish is quite smooth. Dries pretty fast. Love this polish so much, gonna wear it without any nail art on :)Very messy when take off though.
Next un-tried polish is again by MODI in Sparkling Mix #53 (스파클링 믹스). To get this opaqueness I applied 3 layers on, no top coat on this picture. It is clear based polish with blue, gold and pink chunky glitters to it. Nice brush, normal drying time. I only wish I could grab more glitters out of it. Finish is quite rough to the touch, I can feel each glitter flake. And to my great surprise I get so many manicure compliments because of the nail length :) Seems like people like my shorter nails much more~
Missha Crystal nail polish in Blood Sand (블러드 샌드). Which is obviously a sand finish. I have 2 layers on with and without top coat. I like it with top coat on though, the glossy finish looks much better. The texture is a bit guppy but applies quite nice at the same time. It has huge wide brush. Dries in normal time. No stain on the nails.
 Missha in Blood Sand, 2 layers + clear top coat on.
BK magnetic nail polish #016. 2 layers + top coat on. I apologize again for the lighting, it is summer without sun lol~ I can no longer wait until the sun appears because my nails started to chip. Anyways, I really like this sort of emerald green color. Beautiful under any lighting. But the nail polish by itself is weird, no matter how long I wait 'till top coat application it smears. I feel like it never dries completely. Also it chipped on second it's day :P
Thats it for now. I still have lots of untried polish, gonna keep trying them :)
Do you have "un-tried" collection too?
Thank you very much for taking time and stopping by!
Have a polished day!
