Artistic Nail Design ''BAYWATCH'' 2017 Collection

juillet 29, 2017

I know maybe some of you might have seen it already in the swatches page but just thought I'd make a small post of it here for those who haven't. So YES it took me time because school was crazy at the time I got this beautiful Artistic Nail Design collection and I had my head buried into piles and piles of grading. But here it is... the ''Baywatch'' collection which I have to say does go pretty well with the movie. Colorful and vivid, perfect for a summer collection. Also I'll give them an AWARD for the amazing names they gave to each shade... They are simply perfect!

To start from left to right, we have ''Resting Beach Face'', ''Off Duty'', ''Baes Of The Bay'', ''Little Red Suit'', ''Summer Crushin' '' to finish with ''Sun's Out, Buns Out'' !

Hope you love these shades as much as I do <3
Love, K.

''No fake nails for me!'' - they say

juillet 27, 2017

     We have all heard that sentence from someone, even followed by the statement: ''They are beautiful but then my real nails end up being ruined!''. Just do not deny it, you or a friend have said that or still believe that... Even I remember saying that before having any nail and products knowledge. The purpose of this post is to explain why it happens and why it should not be true.

     The first thing to take into consideration is the nail prepping your nail tech will use. For example, if they drill your nail plates too much, well... it weakens your natural nails. Another thing is the products that are used. The more natural the better. In my own opinion, gel is the best option! Once you have your gorgeous nail extensions on, one of the biggest mistakes you can do is to start picking at them as soon as there is a little chip on it. THIS is what ruins your nails the most even if you have the best nail tech and the best products so, please... PROPER removal is key! Have your nail tech remove your precious extensions if you are not sure how to do it yourself. 

     Now back on the product. I know I always talk about the same but hey they are the best what can I do? Want the best and most importantly healthiest products on your nails? Then Bio Seaweed Gel is what you need to get! They really are THE healthiest option of all with no harsh chemicals and no glued tips. As pregnancy has my nails super weak and they break with nothing lately, just as they were the right length, two of my superstar nails broke down to the nailbed, meaning no swatches for like a month. You can guess it was a big no no! So I armed myself with my war instruments and got my magic builder X out.... Actually, this time I decided to use both the pink and clear builder X (first time trying it this way and love it!). For the two fingers I had to sculpt, I wanted a very natural look so I used the pink Builder X to build the tip of the nails and then the clear one for the rest and I have to say I am IMPRESSED! Nails look super natural and I know for a fact that the products I have on will not ruin my nails as long as removed properly! (ps: Do not mind my super transparent and yellowish pregnancy nails hehe just appreciate the wonders Builder X can do! )


That was all for this post lovelies! Hope you enjoyed and got something from it! 
Love, K.

The #1 Gel Polish Brand In Europe!

juillet 11, 2017

Wow, now I don't know where to start but I do have to say a super long while ago I got the chance to speak with the amazing Mees at Pink Gellac and she generously sent me some shades and products to review... I feel so bad that I hadn't had time to finish the swatches and now they are here!


First of all, the package, even if coming from the Netherlands, came super fast and was packed in a super cute way... I still keep the box because I just love it! It came with a very practical lamp to cure the gels which I love because it is small enough to fit anywhere I need to bring it but it is still big enough for not having to stick all the fingers together. Then cam all the items; Primer, Base, Top, along with four beautiful coulours and a bunch of little accessories like a cleaner, orange sticks, wraps and lint free papers. 



Now I got to swatch these beautiful colors and even made some art with some of the colors! 
In order, I got the colors Tropical (#156), Candy Pink (#158), Intergalactic Purple (#162) and Burgundy Red (#205). 


For the nail art, you know how I love stamping and that is what I did. The colors used for the art are in the same order, the last 3 shades. For the stamping, I used plates from Ejiubas and the Born Pretty Store. The stamping polishes used are all from the Born Pretty Store.


Can't wait to get some more goodies from pink Gellac because they are truly easy to work with and the colors are gorgeous!!!

Now that the swatches and art are all shown, I wanted to tlk about a little something that happended to me with those products. Now everything arrived here in perfect condition, except for the top coat which I was so sad about, but what I didn't know about was the Pink Cleaner that came in the package. This stuff if litterally MAGIC! After writing a little email they told me to use it and WOW! What a great surprise! My top coat had arrived with its brush super stiff and all dried up. I just had to wipe the brush with some pink cleaner and a lint free paper and DONE the brush was as good as new and is now working wonders! Seriously thank you Pink Gellac!
