Canadian Nail Art

Hello again!
This weeks nail art isn't geeky at all, simply because I'm spending a lot of the time doing research and so on. So here is something different -

I need to say that these pictures were taken with the phone camera so they will not be a great quality, sorry for that. I didn't really planned on doing this design but it was quick and I hadn't enough time.
This time I'll keep it short and simple.

Thank you for reading, and have a great day!
Come back next week! <3

Scott Pilgrim vs The World Nail Art

Hello again!
As it is Wednesday already, here is something new for your nails:
Scott Pilgrim vs The World Nail Art!
(click to enlarge)

I've included all of Ramona's Seven Evil Exes, the gradient of her hair colors from the movie, Scott's band and D note (yes, all base notes are D regardless of sound).
I can't say that this design was easy for me. I haven't done a lot of portraits lately, especially that small, so it was a bit of a challenge. 
I used a toothpick to draw everything in the design. A fishing line would have worked better but I can't find mine anywhere.
I have chosen this theme because it is one of my favorite movies and I don't know why I haven't thought about this earlier.
I'm planning on making another Scott Pilgrim nail art later including other characters obviously.

Thank you for reading, and have a nice day!
Come back next week <3

Magic Purple/Sky Blue Color Changing Nail Polish.

Hello my dear readers!
This week I want to make a special post dedicated to one single nail polish that I fell in love with from the moment I've tried it on my nails.

I'm going to write about Magic Purple/Sky Blue Color Changing Mood Nail Polish from !

In case you are not sure what does the "color changing" part means, imagine mood rings that were popular back in the day.
This nail polish has the same effect as the rings - when applied on nails, it changes color based on the temperature. 
In this case it becomes sky blue when your hands are warm, and purple when your hands are cold!

To start with, I'd like to say that the shipping was absolutely free worldwide and it took a week or two to receive the package. So it's fast, easy and free which is a big plus.
I received this in the morning. 
And the first thing I did was trying it on my nails! And to be completely honest - it did look awesome but it started to peel off pretty quick, I assumed that it was because I didn't use the top coat (I was in a hurry) and I was right about that. So if you want this polish to last longer - use top coat. It works absolutely fine with it.

 To show you how this amazing nail polish works I have prepared two glasses with hot (warm) and cold water.

I'd like to mention as well that the polish applies smooth and evenly. It is not chunky and does not have any odor that you might not like. 
By the way, I found out that it takes a bit longer to dry if you use a base coat. I tried it with, or without base coat and I prefer to apply it without the base. It does not leave any stains on your nails (like red or green polishes do) so it's safe to use directly on nails.
I applied only one layer of the polish, simply because it was enough, but you can always make a second layer if you want to.

As my hands were cold (as they usually are) it turned purple as soon as it was dry.
In the picture it looks a bit like a lavender color, but it is actually a bit brighter purple.

When dipping my finger into the warm water, the polish turned sky blue, which I really liked!

And it turned purple in the cold water.

Here you can see the difference in colors and how pretty both of them look together or separately. And as my hands were cold the blue one started to change colors and was gradient for a while.( from purple to blue)
As it is cold outside, my nails looked awesome because the tips of the nails were cold and purple but the rest of the nail was blue and constantly changing. I mean like - wow. I liked this polish so much that I'd wear it every day for the rest of the autumn.

Harley Quinn Nail Art

First of all I'd like to say sorry for not posting yesterday, as promised.
I just had a lot of things going on and it just slipped away.
Anyways, this weeks nail art is my favorite theme - Harley Quinn Inspired Nail Art!

Sorry if the quality of the picture is not perfect, I took these pictures while I was in my student exchange program. They are not that bad but if you click on the picture, you will be able to see it better.

I haven't even had toothpicks while doing this design so the only thing I've used was a mechanical pencil! I believe it is the best choice to use if you don't have needles or toothpicks.
There is not much to say about this design and I'm almost late for my lectures that is why I will not write a lot.

PS. I just received a package from The Born Pretty Shop!
(see the post below to check it out)
And I will take time and post a review for you next week!

So stay tuned. thank you for checking out my nail art and have a great day! <3
