#Lakdoor by Lak door Tijn - Polish for a cause

Hello lovelies!

I wanted to start of the week with with something impressive. No, not my mani, but the fact that one little boy was able to unite an entire country through nail polish, for a cause. 

Random Drag Marble Fun!

Hello lovelies!

I received some US polishes from my friend Donna, like the awesome neon yellow. She also sent me A stunning bright purple from LA Colors and a pink from Wet 'n Wild. I decided to use them in one mani!

Friday, July 21, 2017


Hi lovelies!

Today I'm wearing a very special polish, for it was sent to me by my nail polish buddy Donna! She sent me polishes from the US and I'm sending her polishes from Europe.

Catrice "Pulse of Purism" Limited Editions

Hello lovelies!

A long while ago, I bought one of Catrice's limited editions (well, only the nail polishes): "Pulse of Purism". I didn't get around to posting them, but on the off-chance that they're still in your local drugstore, I figured: better late than never! The nail polish part of this collection comprises of three cremes and 1 special effect topper.

LynBDesigns "Sprung"

Hi lovelies!

With my last order from LynBDesigns came a suprise polish: "Sprung" This made my mind go to "spring", which actually sprung a long time ago, but is always good for manicures. Hence this post!

This product was sent to me for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
Hello lovelies!

This post is long overdue. I promised I'd write it ages ago, but since I wanted to put a lot of work in it, I never found the time. It's about one of the absolute necessities when it comes to indie polishes: Glitter Food

The Digit-al Dozen does Paper - Party

Hi lovelies!

So you know, parties often include a large amount of paper... cups, plates, napkins, and even the decorations are also often made of paper. So I decided to decorate my nails with 

....boom and I had accidentally fallen asleep.. the week has been insane and I keep falling asleep after I get home from work! Anyways, as I was saying, I decorated my nails with party flag banners and confetti!

The Digit-al Dozen does Paper - Letter

Hi lovelies!

Sorry I missed yesterday's post... My manicure kept failing (really bad) and after three attempts it was time to go to bed. Things are crazy at work and I'm behind on sleep all the time. But today I have another paper-inspired mani... an old love letter, like back in the day, when people still did that ;)

Lina Nail Art Supplies - Make Your Mark - Blotch & Blossom

Hello lovelies!

Finally time to post this mani I've had lying around for a few weeks now. I used Lina's Nail Art Supplies "Make Your Mark 01" plate, which I had been craving for quite some time now (ever since Cheyenne used it here and this mani is totally inspired by her manis) Finally, by using a coupon I got for my birthday, I was able to procure it. Along with her sister, number 02 ;)

The Digit-al Dozen does Rainforest - Primitive Primates

Hello lovelies!

Day 5 - the last day of The Digit-al Dozen does Rainforest! This was, as it always is, fun! I really enjoyed looking at my fellow nailistas' nails as well. Some amazing freehanding has been going on there... 

Now for the last installment: 
One of the most interesting species that inhabit rainforests around the world, is H. Sapiens Sapiens. Some tribes of H. Sapiens Sapiens have no or very little contact with other tribes and thus have preserved their original, albeit primitive lifestyle. I decided to attribute a manicure to these primates, with whom I share nothing except DNA, but who fascinate me endlessly.

Born Pretty Yellow Series Stamping Polish #103

Hello lovelies!

Remember that water lily mani? Well I used an untried for the green in that one,  which inspired me to try it for real!  There usually is no reason for polishes to become untrieds... Other than a lack of time and the stash becoming bigger and bigger... and the fact that I want to give the polishes the love they deserve! So I showed some love to Aliquid Lacquer "Yooper" and tested a new BP stamping polish while I was at it! 

The Digit-al Dozen | March Birthday | Surprise!

Hi lovelies!

For this month's birthday challenge, we celebrate the birthday of one of our member's - Amber Hess - new baby girl! Congratulations Amber!!!
