Pink Challenge Day 2: Essie - Knockout Pout + Konad - m9, m16, m77 by Maestra

I have the second manicure for the Pink Challenge for you. I wanted to do a super girly, sparkly and over the top manicure. Something I wouldn’t normally wear. Here it is. I used Essie’s Knockout Pout polish as a base and than I stamped over it with a black stamping polish. I used Konad m9, m16 and m77 image ...

Pink Challenge: Day 2 by Gejba

Essence I Love This City, Inglot 205, H7 + Essence Stamp Me White, Manhattan Pro Mat pink challenge products

This challenge is perfect opportunity to try out techniques I didn’t use in a while, to do manicures that are out of my comfort zone … things that I normally wouldn’t be inclined to do.  I’m not a fan of stamping over shimmery/glittery base. For unknown reason I prefer metallic image over creme base. Second thing that you’re not very ...

Kiko Rosa Antico Scuro (no. 317) + Golden Rose Graffiti 11 swatch

This cross between mauve and antique rose in the end convinced me that it is still one the pretty and not “something my ...

Swatches: MeMeMe – Proud and Distinctive

Comparison: Kiko - 348, 349 vs. H&M - Hunt Me Down vs. MeMeMe - Distinctive, Proud

I first came across the MeMeMe brand when I was in the UK and saw it in a drugstore. I’ve never heard of it before. The display was nice, the prices something in between. Not cheap but not very expensive either. I only bought two nail polishes. First one is called Proud and is a dark olive green with strong ...
