The Monthly Man-icure: November

Hello pretty polish pals (am I getting too creative with my greetings now?)! It's time for the second monthly man-icure (check out the last edition here). This time my boyfriend Sebastian (or for short: Seb) chose two nail polishes by Catrice.

Painting my friends' fingernails

Hello everyone! Today is a special day because I'm not going to show you my own nails, but my friends'! On a lovely Sunday afternoon I did some manicures for four friends.  It is so much fun to do other people's nails but it is also such a challenge! Everything is different, shape, length, the angle you're painting in... Anyway, let's have a look at my friends' fingernails!

Review: Born Pretty Store 'Britsh retro' water decals

Hello there everyone! A friendly guy from Born Pretty Store send me an e-mail and offered me to choose something from the hot specials page. I cannot begin to explain how excited I was. I think BPS gives out free samples to about 80 percent of the blogs I read but hey, I still felt pretty special!

I chose these 'British Retro Style Chair Flower Design Print Nail Art Water Decals' (what a name) in the style 'BOP/163'.

Swatch: OPI - Get your number


Hello dear readers! This OPI polish, Get your number, was released in 2012 as part of the Mariah Carey collection. I decided to share these swatch pictures because you can still buy Get your number on Ebay or, like I did, at Big Bazar for €4,99

Manicures I wore while I wasn't blogging

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night (I have no idea when you guys read my posts)! Today I want to share some manicures with you that I wore while I wasn't blogging. Not all photo's are of the best quality but I hope you'll enjoy them nonetheless.

Velvet Skittlette (and mini review)

A while ago I showed you the nail stuff that I bought in October. Among them was a 'velvet effect' set. Although the accent on my pinky is not very obvious, this is a skittlette that I did using W7 Metallic jupiter and the So me velvet effect set. In this post I will show you some pictures of my manicure and I will also shortly review the set.

Nail art copy: Chanel A/W 2012-2013 using Revlon polishes


Hello manicure mavens! ;) Today I'm going to show you my copy of some nail art that was rocked by models during the Chanel show for autumn/winter 2012-2013. I wanted to try out my new Revlon polishes and this seemed like the perfect manicure for that.

Nail stuff bought in October


Hi nail polish fanatics! In this short in-between post I want to show you some new polishes I got this month. I'm sorry about the greyness of the pictures, I do not now why they turned out like this. Must be the autumn light.


Revlon Silver Screen, Girly, Bubbly. I bought these in a set for €5,99 at Big Bazar.

October favourite

October is over and we're in November now! Surprisingly enough, the weather keeps getting better here in Amsterdam. I'm afraid that in a week or so we'll suddenly enter a month filled with rain...

I want to share my favourite manicure of October and I invite you all to share yours! :)
