Stefanie  From Switzerland πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­ I πŸ’œ nail polish & nail art πŸ’… This is my space for creativity & colors 🌈 Thanks for visiting! πŸ’™

Hey everyone! This mani is the one that resulted from my previously shown decal - and an additional one I had to make 😁 I realized that I couldn't fit the whole decal on one nail, so I had to cut it up πŸ˜‰
The stamping plate I used is again @moyou_london 'Hipster 16'. The base polish is two easy coats of the beautiful 'Saraswati' from @vapidlacquer. I love those dark purple flecks! πŸ’œ
Finally, I put a matte topcoat on it. I hope you like it πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•
For the gradient stamping I used: Essie 'Pool Side Service', @emilydemolly 'Green', and @colouralike 'B. a Yellow Glow' πŸ’›

And here is my last entry for the @moyou_london #myldecal contest 😁 Sorry for the decal spam, but I really wanted to post this one today. Since I have rather small nails, such a design will never make it onto my nails completely - but I so enjoyed filling out this design. It's from the 'Gothic 07' plate and I decided to do something frosty / wintery. It is on my Clear Stamper Head, I took it out to show the design better. I hope you like it!
I used a lot of @pscosmetics for this one πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™
Stamping: 'Frosty the Snowborg' & 'Badlands Bandit'
Dress: 'Araneae', 'Chiroptera', 'Corvus Corax' sometimes thinned with clear polish, 'Dream Delight'
Miss Frost: 'Itsuarpok'
Ice bloom: 'Peace on Earth', @nvrenuffpolish 'Aurora Boreapples' and Maybelline 'Uptown Blue'.

My second entry to the @moyou_london #myldecal contest is an image from the 'Hipster 16' plate, again with my Crystal Clear stamper (also from moyou). Also, this is a sneak peek for my next mani πŸ˜‰ Are you tired yet of seeing cacti and succulent manis? Or do you still appreciate them? 😁
If you want to know any details, feel free to ask! πŸ’š

Hi everyone! I was tagged in this by @sstraylightss, so here we go:
1. Essie vs OPI: Hmm, I would say from overall colour range OPI (except the last collectionπŸ˜…), but if it comes to actually buying them I've got more Essies because they are more affordable :)
2. Nail art vs one color mani: it really depends on how much time I have. If I had to choose, I think I prefer wearing nail art because I can be more creative with that.
3. Fav drugstore nail polish: I don't have many of those, but I feel Essence has a very good price for a good polish formula & color range.
4. Clearly gradient for me - I still need a lot more practice for watermarble 😁
5. Fav topcoat: Uhm, don't really have one. Right now I like to use: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, Astor Quick Dry, CG Fast Forward, Celestial Cosmetics Lighting Quick Dry, Darling Diva Topcoat.
6. Long vs Short nails: I cannot have long nails because of my other hobby, so medium to short nails it is!
7. Holo πŸ’•
8. Nope
9. I actually prefer Cuticle Oil a tiny bit
10. No, I don't want to thin my nails any more than they already are πŸ˜‚
Do you like to read such tags (I do btw, I find them interesting)? Or does it annoy you?
I have no clue who was tagged in this already πŸ˜… Plus I don't know any people that I'm sure would like to do this tag, soo please just feel tagged if you want to answer it yourself! I hope you can forgive me for that little cheat πŸ˜‰πŸ’•

For the #myldecal contest, I want to enter with my stamping decal of the algae from the @moyou_london 'Sailor 04' plate πŸ’š This is on my Crystal Clear Stamper (also from moyou), which I like a lot and use mostly for reverse stamping and when placement is important πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•
#lookmoyoulondon #myl #moyoulondon #stampingdecal #reversestamping

Hello everyone 😊 Finally, here is my nailart over 'Built with Shipwrecked Bones' from @femme_fatale_cosmetics πŸ’š I thought algae would fit with the mermaid / underwater theme, but now I'm not too sure - there's maybe a bit too many green tones on my nails πŸ˜…
I used again the @moyou_london 'Sailor 04' stamping palette to stamp and a lot of polishes to fill out the lines. If you're interested in them, you can always ask in the comments πŸ˜„
I hope you have a nice friday! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

The last polish I currently own from the 'Little Mermaid' collection from @femme_fatale_cosmetics is 'Built with Shipwrecked Bones' πŸ’š It is very opaque, you can see 2 thin coats here 😊
When I received this, I was honestly a tiny bit disappointed. In my mind, I pictured this as a more desaturated, darker olive leaning polish - but when I looked at the bottle, I didn't see that. Additionally, this was my instant favorite from the collection swatches. However, the application and wearing the polish convinced me of it. The thing is, this polish is quite the chameleon on me - depending on the light and the angle the light hits the nails it can lean from a more blue-toned green to a more yellow-y green. It is possible that how the holographic glitters reflect the light plays into this 😁 As you can see, there are even different nuances of green on one nail! I actually really like that 'glowy' quality now and am glad I gave the polish another chance πŸ˜ŠπŸ’š #femmefatalecosmetics #builtwithshipwreckedbones #indieswatch #aussieindies #aipaslove #indiepolish #indienailpolish #nailitdaily

I really like the @moyou_london 'Sailor 04' plate, so I decided to also stamp 'Among Daughters of Air' with a wave motive from that one 😁 I added a fourth coat of the @femme_fatale_cosmetics polish to my pointer and middle nail which made it opaque πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™
For the gradient stamping I used 'Badlands Bandit' from @pscosmetics, 'B. an Aurora' from @colouralike, and 'Frosty the Snowborg', also from @pscosmetics 😊

Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone πŸ˜πŸ’™

After 'Glittering Draught', I just had to swatch this one from @femme_fatale_cosmetics - 'Among Daughters of Air' πŸ’™ It has a light blue tinted base with a ton of sparkle and shimmer 😍 πŸ‘‰ Swipe left for more pictures (including a macro)!
Funny enough it looks more blue on my nails than on other swatches, but I love it this way 😊 As you can see, it was still a bit sheer for me after 3 medium to thick coats; but again, it didn't bother me at all while wearing it. It dried almost not gritty at all, but I still used topcoat for the photos.
I really like this one as well, even though I normally am very critical with sheer polishes. It just felt very ethereal and mermaid-y 😁 How do you feel about visible nail line?

And I even did some nailart over 'Glittering Draught' from @femme_fatale_cosmetics 😁 Since it was from the Little Mermaid collection, I wanted to do something matching. I used 'Yuletide of the Machines' to stamp and filled it out with 'Peace on Earth' and 'Misty', all from @pscosmetics πŸ’™
The image is from the @moyou_london Sailor 04 plate πŸ’™
I hope you have a great day tommorrow πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

Hi everyone! I recently got a huge @femme_fatale_cosmetics order (from May & June) and I had to try this one right away 😊 This is 'Glittering Draught' - and it lives right up to its name πŸ˜„ It's very pretty in indirect lighting, it somehow reminds me of seaglass (maybe because of the lightly gritty finish) and has a metallic touch to it. But in direct light / in the sun, it really shows off its beautiful holo glitters 😍 If you swipe left, you can see the polish in different situations, first with topcoat and then in the last picture without. It was opaque for me in 2 coats on my shorter nails and in 3 coats on the others. I hope you like the photos, I'm still working on the settings of my new polish swatching station πŸ˜πŸ’•

Hello everyone πŸ˜„
Today I show you 'Balloon Flower' from @pahlish - it is a beautiful soft violet crΓ¨me polish with metallic, tiny flakies from last years summer collection. It leans a tad too much into blue on this photo. It was restocked this week, so maybe you can still get it πŸ˜‰πŸ’œ
Application was very easy, I did thin-ish coats, so 3 were needed for full coverage for photos - in real life two would have been enough. I was actually surprised by how much I liked wearing this! It's almost a pastel, so not something I'm instantly drawn to, as you may know 😁
I hope you're having a great week πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•
