Cirque - Boudoir Meets Cirque - Vesuvius

Cirque Boudoir + Cirque Vesuvius
For this mani I used two stunning prismatic nail polishes from Cirque. These two colors combine really well! I started with applying two coats of Boudoir, a reddish purple, on my pinky and index fingernail and Vesuvius, a warm pink, on my ring and middle fingernail. I used a makeup sponge to create a gradient effect on the middle nails. I love this effect! The only thing is that it's a shame the lineair prismatic effect lost its strength by sponging it on (vertically). But I can't get over how gorgeous both nail polishes are! :L

*blows dust from blog

I can't believe it's been a year since I posted my last nail pictures... I'm not one for long explanations, but how about some new nail pics? I decided to go for something nice and neutral. Two coats of OPI - Don't Bossa Nova Me Around, stamped with a england - Her Rose Adagio. I wore Her Rose Adagio a couple of times and loved it. As you can see it's also amazing for stamping! The stamped design is from plate BM-406, one of the plates from the Bundle Monster 2013 'Create Your Own' stamping set. This organic design is one of my favourites from this set.

Thanks for watching!

*a-england - Her Rose Adagio and the Bundle Monster stamping plate were sent to me for reviewing purposes.

I'm Alive + Flower Pot Cake

flower pot cake
Just a short post to let you know I'm still alive! Thanks a lot for the sweet comments and emails. There really is no need to worry! What can I say.. life happens, I had other things on my mind. I hope I'll be able to start posting nail pictures soon. The least I can do now is share a bit of my other passion (cakes!).. I made this little flower pot for my Mom's 55th birthday last weekend.
