(Deutsch) Cult Nails Disciplined

Cult Nails Disciplined 3

My original impulse for today blogpost was to vent about my stressful last week and the post office strike over here in Germany which is stopping me from receiving new material for all the blog posts I had planned. But I am glad, that instead I found these fotos on my computer, that I haven’t posted yet, so instead of bothering you with stuff you do not wann hear, I will share another nail polish with you. This nail polish is by the US-brand Cult Nails where I am not sure whether is is an “indie” brand, but I suppose it is. On the website www.cultnails.com it was impossible to… Continue Reading

Picture Polish Solar Flare

Picture Polish Solar Flare 3

Today I am not showing you anything new. I just wanna share with you one of the rare and pretty polishes in my collection. It is a color by Picture Polish which came out in February 2014 in their LE Collection. If you check out this post by ThePolishAholic you will find all the other beautiful swatches from this collection. The color of Solar Flare is hard to describe and this nail polish was quite a surprise to me. Not just because the color changes between orange, purple, copper to almost greenish gold, also because this polish is not opaque whatsoever, even though it does look like it in the bottle.… Continue Reading

Kartoon Karl Nail Art 3

For today’s Mani Monday I have a really cool nail art for you. It is inspired by the the new cooperation between Karl Lagerfeld and the french cartoon artist Tiffany Cooper.

LAYLA Gel Effect Nail Polish

LAYLA Gel 06 Power Red final

It was a few days after Christmas when I had ordered a couple of nail polishes from different online stores that had special deals during the holidays and that is when I purchased this polish by LAYLA Cosmetics from Milan, Italy. A brand that so far was new to me. By that time I was in the mood for a new red nail polish and I would not have purchased, if it hadn’t been on sale. I do not quite remember the online shop but I belive it was 50 % off. I recently found the same polish online for prices up to 9,90 €. LAYLA Cosmetics from Italy offers… Continue Reading

ILNP Music Box

ILNP Music Box Nail Design Slapper 1

One of my favorite indie nail polish brands is ILNP. The have some of the most beautiful and stunning holo and multichrome nail polishes I have ever seen. And I guess I also love their name “I love nail polish”. I own a few of their old polishes with the former bottle design as I think in 2014 they have changed it to the new design you see above. But a lot of polishes still remain the same. Today I am showing you a color named Music Box. You can order their polishes exclusively on www.ilnp.com (average price is 10 $).  Music Box is a holografic teal nail polish. 1… Continue Reading
