(Deutsch) Edding Nail Art

Edding Self-Confident Silver 8

Finally a blog post on nail art again, because I have been MIA lately. Today I am showing you a new Edding L.A.Q.U.E.’s nail polish, called Nr. 195 Self-Confident Silver. I have a complete blog post in German about the Edding brand, you can click here, I am sorry I haven’t posted this one in English yet, as the brand is only available in Germany for now.

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. The Capsule Collection has been announced in a couple of fashion magazines like VOGUE and Harpers Bazaar a few weeks ago already but it will be launched at Colette Paris and all Karl Lagerfeld-boutiques this April 2015 .
