Europe: Germany – Rammstein’s Nebel fan brush nail art

Friday means Europe, and in the day of German unity, it’s Germany‘s turn. I love this country and I’m writing this outside of my German class.
Germany also reminds me of my favourite band, Rammstein, whose song Nebel (fog) inspired me for this fan brush nail art.

Il venerdì è il giorno dell’Europa, e nel giorno dell’unificazione tedesca, è il turno della Germania. Adoro questo paese e vi scrivo appena prima di una lezione di tedesco.
La Germania significa anche il mio gruppo preferito, i Rammstein, e la loro canzone Nebel (nebbia) è stata di ispirazione per questa fan brush nail art.

It’s Discontinued Day, and I have a matte nail polish for you: Deborah Milano Sense Tech 100% Mat no. 04 Giada Verde. Liloo showed that it’s easy to write on matte nail polish with pretty much anything, so I tried different pencils and markers to see how they worked.

Discontinued Day #1: Catrice Rest In The Forest, Steel My Soul

This post in English

Cos’è il Discontinued Day? È un nuovo appuntamento mensile, dedicato a smalti e makeup discontinued, cioè fuori produzione. Tutte ne abbiamo, ma nonostante non sia più prodotto può lo stesso valer la pena di mostrarlo e questa è l’occasione giusta. Non sono la sola a pensarla così: a fine post troverete un elenco di tutte le blogger partecipanti. Se vi piace l’idea (e la tabella a fine post) dovete ringraziare l’ideatrice e organizzatrice, Gnoma di Polishically Uncorrect.

Per oggi ho due smalti Catrice fuori produzione, uno molto bello e uno terribile. Continua »

Kiko Sugar Mat 640 Poppy Red: swatches and new brush

Vai al post in italiano

Kiko just came out with two new limited edition nail polish lines, in store since yesterday (in Italy): Mirror and Sugar Mat Nail Lacquers. These latter are 16 shades of “textured sand effect nail polish with full, pearly or glittery colours in a mat finish”, “as though sprinkled with grains of sugar” when dry. They follow the trend of textured nail polish which is very popular with famous overseas brands (O.P.I. liquid sand, Zoya pixie dust, China Glaze texture etc.). I’m showing you Kiko 640 Poppy Red, which is actually more orange than red if you ask me. Continue reading
