Hello Lovely Ladies,

Today’s post might as well be called “Quick! Call the Paramedics to help me yank my foot out of my mouth”.

Why?  “Extra! Extra! Read all about it!”

Let me tell you why … ;)

PUEEN Nail Wraps

Author: marta  //  Category: PUEEN

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Those of you who follow PUEEN Cosmetics on their various social media networks might have noticed that they are getting ready to launch a new line of nail wraps.  It is nice to see a brand so well known for nail-stamping branch out to bring a different style of nail art to those who are less inclined to stamp, but still crave a little bit of nail art ;)

Introducing PUEEN Nail Wraps!

PUEEN Nail Stencil Rolls – REVIEW

Author: marta  //  Category: China Glaze, Cult Nails, PUEEN

Hello Lovely Ladies,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are energized for the week to come.  I have to admit that with the time change, the days feel longer and brighter… now all we need is the sun to melt all this white stuff ;)

The product I am reviewing for you today is a little bit of a new twist on nail art, and is a pretty neat alternative for those of us who haven’t gotten into stamping yet, but would like to try some designs on their nails.

Oval-Nails Skittlette

Author: marta  //  Category: Nicole OPI, OPI, PUEEN

Hello Lovely Ladies,

I really wanted to let my new-oval shape (which at this point I was already set on changing back to square) to live through the skittlette experience at least once ;)   I HAD to reach for the new PUEEN Buffet set again (I reviewed it here, and already played with one of my favourite stamps here)… so it was time I reached for my other top-favourite personal pick plate ;)

Distressed Newsprint Nails

Author: marta  //  Category: Color Club, Mash, OPI, piCture pOlish, PUEEN

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Today’s post is mutually inspired by two very very talented Ladies.  The distressed base is done thanks to the wonderful tutorial created by Sarah from Chalkboard Nails here, and the stamping layer was fully inspired by @madamluck on Instagram.

I hope you find that this copy-cat-ish look still brings something new to the table ;)

PUEEN Cosmetics – Stamping Buffet Full Review

Author: marta  //  Category: China Glaze, OPI, PUEEN

Hello Lovely Ladies,

It is with great pleasure that I wish to share with you the newest stamping plate set from PUEEN Cosmetics!  This set of 24 stamping plates is a little different from what we are used to from round-plates ;)

PUEEN Cosmetic calls this their “Stamping Buffet” because YOU get to pick and choose which areas from each plate you transfer onto your nail- the options are boundary-less and limitless.

Without further ado, here is my picture-laden and written in awe, excitement and fascination post:

A Stamp, a Gradient and a Skittlette

Author: marta  //  Category: Nicole OPI, piCture pOlish, PUEEN

Hello Lovely Ladies,

The title of today’s post kind of reminds me of the start of those jokes: “a stamp, a gradient and a skittlette walk in to a bar and ….” LOL.

This is another from-the-vault look… from waaay back in late summer:

Courage for the New Year

Author: marta  //  Category: Color Club, Jessica Cosmetics, OPI, PUEEN

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Today’s post is fitting, as it matches my current state of mind.

I just spent three really REALLY relaxing days in a winter-wonderland atmosphere at my sister’s cottage… and while I was truly able to unwind and appreciate the precious things in life with family, in the back of my head I am building up courage for the new year :D .

I hope to finish my school program, put together a decent resume and go into major job-hunting mode.  This is a big change for my family and I and one that is making me… well,… nervous.

When I spotted today’s feature polish during a random Christmas shopping trip, I knew I had to purchase it… if only for the name: Jessica Cosmetics Courage:

Christmas Spirit!

Author: marta  //  Category: BornPretty Store, BundleMonster, Colores de Carol, Jessica Cosmetics, PUEEN

Hello Lovely Ladies,

I don’t know about you but I sure am feeling the Christmas spirit.  The kids are officially done school for the Holidays, my shopping is all done, and my back’s a-achin’ from baking five dozen cookies for the cookie exchange this evening :D

I normally don’t do a lot of festive manicures on the blog, but when my Amiga Carolina from Colores de Carol sent me a parcel with all of her Holiday shades, I knew I had to bring on the tinsel and bells ;)

Today, I would like to show you three of her shades (and on Monday I will feature the other three)… who knows, maybe you will find a fun holiday inspired look in one of them :D
