Nail Art Trio

As a self-proclaimed nail polish enthusiast you will only very rarely see me with bare nails, especially not for longer periods of time. Depending on how messy and chipped my nails have gotten in the meantime, I tend to change my nail polish at least once a week. Luckily and surprisingly, my natural nails are actually still quite healthy and intact (thank goodness!).

The reason why I don’t regularly publish a ‘Nails of the week’ post or something of that sort is that I don’t really feel like every design/ colour I try out deserves its own entire blog post. As I’m quite an annoying perfectionist, it’s admittedly rather hard to please me completely.
Anyway, I thought I’d show you a compilation of three designs that I wore lately, compacted into this single post!



Polishes used:
Main colour: wet’n’wildWet Cement
Copper crosses: ManhattanCafé Beauté
Silver cross: ciatéfit for a queen
Top coat: essiegood to go





Polishes used:
Main colour: KIKO507 Blush
Mint accent: ciatépepperminty
Top coat : essiegood to go





Polishes used:
Left side: KIKO485 Pearly Coral Rose
Right side: KIKO359 Light Peach
Copper stripe: ManhattanCafé Beauté
Top Coat: essie - good to go



Do you have a favourite amongst these three designs? I'd love to know!

  2. The second photo looks stunning. I'm quite bad at painting my nails in general let alone doing cool patterns. Great post. x

  4. Das erste gefällt mir am besten, aber generell ist Nail Art nichts für mich. Ich bin froh, wenn ich es schaffe, meine Nägel halbwegs ordentlich zu lackieren, für den Rest fehlt mir die Geduld.

    1. An manchen Designs, die ich ausprobiere, verzweifle ich auch in regelmäßigen Abständen - ich sehe das ganze einfach als Geduldstraining ^_^

  16. Wow I really loved all of these! You do such a great job with nails. I am not patient enough or steady enough to do designs, so I tend to just stick to short single polish colored ones.

      It has definitely taken me some time to develop the patience to do certain designs but I still go for a simple colour quite often when I just can't be bothered ^_^

    1. Thank you so much! This shade from wet'n'wild is definitely one of my all-time favourite shades as well - the colour is so nice, the application with the wide brush is super easy and it lasts amazingly long on my nails without chipping ☺

  22. Your nails look amazing! I've been tried to make sure I keep my nails painted lately, otherwise I'll bite them down to nothing. I'm loving Essie "fun in the gondola" right now, and I keep finding essie polishes for amazing prices!

    1. Thanks a lot! ☺
      I've seen swatches of 'fun in the gondola' before and this kind of shade is totally up my street! I actually own a KIKO polish that is quite similar to it ^_^
      Finding nail polishes at bargain prices always gets me so excited. I recently snatched a set of three Essie polishes for the price of one at TK Maxx :))
