Converse nail art feat. Zoya Lo

I just had to do these cute Converse nails!
Aren't they cute!?
I know they're not perfect but you have to admit they're fun! :)

Polishes used are:
Zoya Lo (pink)
Barry M Matte White
Depend silver
Depend black

I used a thin brush for the laces and a dotting tool for the dots.

I did them in this order:
Base coat
Zoya Lo
Barry M to do the white tips
Big dots in silver
White laces
Small dots in black
Seche Vite top coat

Grade: 5/5!!! :D

Accessorize Mermaid

This is the lovely Mermaid from Accessorize. Bought in lovely London, U.K! £5 only 10 ml.

It is a bit more green than the pictures show.

Duochrome from dark turquoise to dark green and with tiny but plenty glitter particles in gold and turquoise. A perfect mermaid! :)

This is three coats but two is sufficient.

Nice formula and no chipping for days! I had one coat of Seche Vite over it.

Smooth for a polish with that much glitter in it. One coat of Seche was enough to make it silk smooth. And it was not that hard to remove even though it's a glitter polish! :)

Grade: 4/5

Ciaté Skinny Jeans with Union Jack nail art

This is lovely fantastic Ciaté's Skinny Jeans!

And this is ONE coat!!!!!
The opacity is amazing!!!
You have to be quick when you're applying it though because the formula is quite thick. But I like it!

The colour is really nice too. A dark sky blue. Cream finish. Glossy!

To spice things up I did a Union jack on one of the index fingers :)
I used a thin brush. The white first (Barry M's White polish) and then the red (Eyeko's Red Nail Polish).

Grade (Skinny Jeans): 5/5 :D

I want more Ciaté polishes if they are just as nice as Skinny Jeans!

Giraffe print nail art

Just wanted to show what I did to pimp my OPI The IT Color...
...I gave it a giraffe print! :)

I used Essie's Mink Muffs and Bundle Monster plate no BM-215

This really shows why a giraffe sometimes is called camelopard :)

OPI The IT Color

In short:

Formula: 4/5
Opacity: 2/5 (this is three coats)
Colour: 5/5 - it's lovely mustardy!

Grade: 3/5 (simply because it didn't match my skin tone :/)

Thank you little miss Impatient for lending it to me! <3
