NOTD - Outlined Galaxy


I'm wearing this right now and it feels nice. I felt uninspired yesterday, so I went through my do-it-later designs and tried this one from Spector's Nails. I didn't really follow the tutorial as I worked with acrylic paint (plus with Gabriella Salvete 148 white polish and water).

The design inside reminds me of pictures you find, when you google "galaxy", so that's where the title comes from. I didn't intend it to look galaxy-like, so I didn't add any stars or dust.

Now this it "the other hand", which wasn't hard to do. It didn't take me long to do both hands - compared to usual.

As a top coat I used Essence BTGN Top Sealer.

Mistero Grey and Tie Dye

In my previous post I promised to talk about the Gabriella Salvete STARS 04 Mistero Grey textured polish. I will also mention the Gabriella Salvete 148 white polish, because white is the colour I use the most and this white is the best I could find in local drug stores.

Mistero Grey Triangles on Yellow

This is a design I wore just for two days (which is unusual for me) not because I wouldn't like it, I did, but I wanted to give my nails a rest after some polished time.
It's quite abstract. Originally I was inspired by this design a Spector's Nails, but trial version looked strange, so I changed it into what you see.

The silver colour is actually textured (but top coated) Gabriella Salvete STARS Mistero Grey polish, which I will further introduce in the next post.
To do this design, start off with yellow base, then create white triangles using bottle brush and add silver triangles over the white using bottle brush too (I find it easier and quicker this way, but you can use nail art brush, obviously). Then to do the black borders, I used a black gel pen, it allows me to make very thin lines, and it is a high quality one, so when it dries, it doesn't smudge.

Simple Stripes

I didn't have enough time and I wanted to combine blue and pink. I ended up with vertical stripes, they make my nails look longer, I think. And it goes well with the blog design, right?

The Very First Post & NOTD - Floral Porcelain

I'm Marge and I'm Czech.
This is a nail blog. In the future, this should be an inspiring archive of my nail art, probably containing reviews and other nail blog stuff.
If my English isn't perfect, forgive me, I do my best.
I know I'm barely talking to anybody, but here comes my first post...
Floral Porcelain

Typing this, I'm wearing floral nail art, which reminds me of porcelain, probably because of the light pink background colour, which was too sheer, so I layered it over white base.
The roses were done with acrylics, that I bought last week after a lot of hesitating. I felt like anything that is not nail polish would act weird on nails, but it doesn't. The colour set (12 x 12ml) was so cheap (around 6€) and the paint is so easy to work with.
