Autumn dotticure

On top of By K Pull Up I did a autumn inspired dotticure using only By K polishes :)

I used the following polishes: By K OY-MAK (bright red), By K The Sky is the Limit (dark red) By K Jump and Slide (brown red) and By K Bravo-Yankie-Kilo (gold).

I'm really pleased with the result! I like the colors and the diagonal rainbow feeling to it. A perfect autumn manicure :)

How do you like my autumn dotticure?

By K Pull Up - swatches and review

It's time for the last polish from By K's summer collection! This is Pull Up, a grayish mauve with a fantastic formula! It was so easy to apply that I could have done it whilst sleeping! ;)

This is two coats but one coat is definitely possible if you do a little bit of a thicker coat. The formula has the most perfect thickness/thinness and it's very very self leveling! Just perfect and the best formula of the whole collection. It reminds me of the early By K creams. They had perfect formulas too and most of them were one coaters.

The color of Pull Up shifts a bit depending on light so today I'll show you two pictures :)
As always with By K's polishes they are 5-free, vegan, cruelty free and allergy certified.


Type of polish: Cream.

Number of coats: Two, but there is definitely a one coater possibility!

Formula: Excellent! Very self leveling!

Brush: Thin straight cut.

Top Coat: Yes. 

Grade: 4+++/5

The only reason Pull Up doesn't get a full mark from me is that I'm not a mauve lover. I like grey but this has a bit too much purple in it for my taste. However, it's a beauty and as I've said now like hundred times, the formula is to die for! ;) A perfect autumn polish. I did a fantastic nail art on it which I'll show you soon. :)

How do you like Pull Up?

Floral nails

Even though gorgeous By K Jump and Slide looks totally stunning on its own I wanted to add some nail art to it. Being a florist I couldn't resist to stamp on some flowers :)

The plate used is MoYou London Princess plate 14 and the pink metallic polish is Kiko #620. To cheer it up even more I added a pink dot in each flower with By K Camelia Rose.

I really like the result! The pattern doesn't hide the beautiful base and I like the childish look of it :)

How do you like this nail art?
