Matte purple + metallic nails with smART Nails - Day 7

This is the last day of my smART Nais Week! Less than one hour left to enter the giveaway!

I saved one of my favorite manicures of this week for this last day: matte purple with metallic silver stripes

Ok, the people of smART Nails are not going to be happy with my next tip, but you can use one stencil several times. Why waste a perfectly good product??? The stencil sticks really well to your nails and if you make sure the polish you used is completely dry on the stencil, you can use it again easily, it keeps giving you a sharp design a second time around. And maybe a third also, but I can only say I used each stencil twice and that worked great for me.


 I'm seriously considering this my Chrismas manicure, it's classy with a touch of bling.
Or I could go really over the top with the bling ofcourse and forget about the classy...not sure yet, but this mani is in theory a perfect Christmas manicure.


It's as easy as the picture above: paint your nails, wait for them to dry, put on the stencil and add the second polish over it.

Magnet design from smART Nails + Giveaway -Part 6

This design from smART Nails is called "magnet", I don't know why it's called like that, but it does look amazing! I wanted to do something fun with this design and then I found this picture by Liana's Nails and I knew these were the colors I wanted to use.

I really love how this turned out, not as nice as the mani I was inspired by, but the colors work really well together!

I'm really tired, so I'm keeping it short today, here is another picture of this mani, this one is taken without sunlight (pictures above are taken in the sunlight):

Orly 'Miss Conduct' with golden chevrons by smART nails + giveaway - Part 5

I call these my Wonder Woman nails! I'm aware the logo of Wonder Woman looks different, she doesn't wear pink and certainly no glitter, but still this reminds me of Wonder Woman. I really like the old cartoon Wonder Woman, with the muscles and all, she's so bad-ass. Not at all as the pictures I've seen with Megan Fox as Wonder Woman, who doesn't look muscular and strong at all.


Products used:
Magenta: Orly 'Miss Conduct'
Gold: Orly 'Luxe'
Chevrons made with SmART Nails nailstencils.
Miss Conduct is a lovely magenta with amazing holographic sparkles. The holo is not the strongest one out there, but even when the holo doesn''t show up, you still get a nice sparkle from it.
This is also almost a one-coater, so lots of reasons to buy this polish if you come across it.

Even without sunlight, this is stull a lovely sparkly magenta polish.

Have I already told you how easy the stencils are? You just stick them on your nail, paint over them, peel the stencil off and *Boom* there are your fabulous nails!

Dots and splatters with SmART Nails + Giveaway! - part 4

Day 4 of my Smart Nails Week, have you already entered the giveaway???
If you didn't, what are you waiting for? :-)
Check the giveaway at the bottom of the page right now!

I really liked the SmART Nails splatter design, so I wanted to try a little more elabotare mani for this manicure. 

For the base I did a dotticure with 2 colors of blue. After that dried, I used the stencil to add the splats.

Unfortunately I smudged the splatter design a bit when I added the topcoat, So here is some free advise: don't use a thick half-dried-up topcoat over a wet design (stupid me). Wait until the design is dry OR use a topcoat that is in a better condition. (I couldn't find my good bottle, so I used the old one, big mistake)

Thank you so much for watching!
Be sure you enter the giveaway below!!! :-)

Holographic nails with FUN Lacquer and SmART Nails + GIVEAWAY - part 3

Happy Sunday everybody! Tonight I went to see to see the musical Dreamgirls in StdsschouwburgUtrecht (theatre in city Holland), so I'm keeping it short and sweet for today's manicure with SmART Nails, because it's time to go to bed!

I did a lovely manicure with green, black and silver and a pointy nail stencil:

Product used
Green holo - FUN Lacquer 'Margarita Cocktail'
Black holo: Color Club 'Revvvolution'
Silver holo glitter (pinky) - FUN Lacquer '24K (H)'
Plain silver (index) - L'Oréal
Smart Nails Big Teeth stencil

Don't you just love the FUN Lacquer holo's? Margarita Cocktail is a lime green holo that needs at least 2 coats, but i did three, It looks amazing in sunlight (much beter than under the lamp I had to use because it was so cloudy)

24K (H) is the holo glitter on my pinky, it is very dense and can be worn on it's own in just 2 coats. There  are amazing silver glitter + holographic pigments in it! I wish the lamplight showed the holo better. Since I bought the 24K (H) this summer, FUN Lacquer killed me by releasing more insanely pretty holo glitters, I really hope to be able to buy some more real soon!

This is how the Big Teeth stencil looks in the package.

Colorful diamonds on white and glitter-gradient background. SmART Nails + GIVEAWAY - part 2

The nice people of SmART Nails offered to send me some of their stencils to try them out and give my honest review. I didn't have to think twice about their offer, because I already bought their product once and really loved how easy it was to use.

For this mani I decided to keep the background light and use a variety of neons over the stencil to make the design really pop.

Products used:
White: Misa 'Suited Perfectly'
Silver glitter: FUN Lacquer '24Karat (H)'
Different neons by different brands (I forgot which ones I used, sorry)

I drybrushed the holographic glitter over the semi sheer white background to get the gradient. I finished with a quickdry topcoat, waited a few minutes untill it was very very dry and then I used the stencil, a small brush and an assortment of neons.

This is how the stencils look in the packaging
This is how the stencil looks if you use it on your nail

Spiders on my nails!!! SmART Nails + Giveaway - part 1

This week I'm showing you a few designs I made with SmART Nails; super easy to use nail stencils that can make every manicure look like you spent a lot of time and effort into doing your nails. '

I will be posting manicures with SmART Nails every day for a week and you can also enter the giveaway every day (read more about the giveaway on the bottom of the post).


I used the following polishes for this manicure:

Index- and ringfinger: OPI Liquid Sand 'Stay The Night'
Middlefinger: W7 matte black
Pinky: China Glaze 'Thunderbird'

I know Halloween was a couple of weeks ago, but wouldn't this make a great Halloween mani?????
It was as easy as painting your nails, wait for them to dry and then use the stencils to add the spiders to it.


Pictures above show the stencils on the nails.

OPI - Can't Find My Czechbook with Essence glitter gradient

OPI Can't Find My Czeckbook is the perfect light blue creme, it applies like a dream and it looks so smooth and glossy!!! I really like this polish!
I wore it as a full mani with a glitter gradient with Essence Not Punky Nor Funky, which is my favorite glitter polish by Essence ever, it was a limited edition though, sorry!


Can't Find My Czechbook wears like iron, 5 days without a single chip, another big plus for this polish! As if it wasn't already perfect. 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
Have a great day and I hope to see you here again :-)

Love, Inge (PolishSis)

W7 - Meteorite with distressed nails / brush stroke manicure

The distressed nails aka brush stroke manicures have been on the blogs for quite a while, but this is my first attempt.
I chose colors that matched W7 Meteorite: metallic gold, kobalt blue + black and white for the distressed effect.

W7 Meteorite is gold shimmer with kobalt blue holographic glitter. On the pictures you see more visible nail line than in real life. This is 3 thin easy coats.

The distressed nails / brush stroke nails are so much easier to do than I expected! You just watch the tutorial by Chalkboard Nails and that is all you need to get started. I used the same polishes on each distressed nail: creme blue, metallic gold, creme white, creme black. For my middle finger I used the creme blue for the basecolor and for my ringfinger I used the metallic gold as basecolor.

Picture above does not do the W7 meteorite justice. In real life the VNL was not that much visible. I chose to show you this picture because the distressed nails / brush stroke mani showed up very well on this picture.


Thank you so much for watching!
Have a great day! :-)

Love, Inge (PolishSis)
