Cirque nail polish, my new nail polish love

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen my TiNS and Cirque nail polish haul from a few months ago. I've been seeing Cirque nail polishes around for quite some time now and I've been really impressed by the unique sparkly colours.

After trying to narrow down my wishlist as much as possible I placed an order with Mei Mei's signatures and waited anxiously for my nail polishes to arrive. When I opened my package I wasn't disappointed! All 4 colours were fabulous. I have chosen Galinda, a beautiful white glitter, Vaudeville, a lilac nail polish full of iridescent glitter, Hellebore a green glitter with a touch of pink and Fascination Street, a fabulous dark blue holographic nail polish.

In the course of the last couple of months I tried all 4 colours so I am ready to show them to you ^_^

As I have a thing for purple, of course I had to start with Vaudeville which turned out to be my favourite of the bunch.

You can see how it looks under different lighting. From top to bottom there's direct sunlight, artificial light and shade. I wore two coats over top coat and of course used a coat of Seche Vite on top.

A few days later the colour was still intact and I decided to layer Hellebore over it.

I loved the combination of the two colours! Unfortunately the weather was cloudy so I didn't manage to take a decent photo.

Here is Fascination Street. Blue is not a colour I am overly fond of on my nails but when it is combined with a holographic effect, I am sold!

Finally a few days ago white wearing a black nail polish I decided to go for glitter tips, using Galinda.
What do you think of this combination dear readers? Do you own any Cirque nail colours? Which one is your favourite?

March nail inspiration, floral nails tutorial, spring nail designs

Spring is here once again and as everything around me is blooming, I can't help but dedicate this month's nail inspiration post to flower nail art that is perfect for spring! All this month's nail art comes from Ericonail, one of the most well known nail salons in Japan, that also has an exclusive nail art supply line.

Check out these fabulous floral nail designs!

If you would like to have something similar on your own nails take a look at these step by step nail art tutorials.

The first tutorial is a girly flower nail art design by Yoshitake Ayako. A design in pastel colours with small flowers and lace. You will need two nail polishes in white and pastel green (or any other pastel colour you like really), lace nail stickers, acrylic paints in shades of pink and green (for the flowers) and silver bullions (I find these optional). Then you carefully follow the instructions in the pictures. Of course you can modify the design as you see fit.

The second tutorial is a vivid flower nail art design by Takeda Chika. A design in shades of pink with beautiful 3d flowers and a hint of glitter. You will need three nail polishes in pearl white, pink and fuchsia, acrylic powder (or 3d flower stickers which are easier to use), a glitter nail art polish, pearls and gold bullions.

What do you think of these nail art tutorials dear readers? Would you every try something like this on your nails?
