Blog break

Just a short post to tell you that I'm going on a blog break on an indefinite period.

My life is both crazy busy and chaotic right now and blogging feels more like a must than a pleasure. A distinct sign to take a time-out.

My love for polishes is very much alive though and I will keep doing manicures and nail arts! If you still want to see them and comment on them you can find me at Instagram and Facebook.

At Instagram I'm @jezzlan and I've got my own page at Facebook called Little Miss Nailpolish.
I'm also on Twitter as @littlemissnailp but I'm best reached on the other two.
I really hope to see you there!

I won't say goodbye, instead I say - see you! Until then, take care my friends! <3

Purple Holo Leaves Manicure

The theme for today's Nail Art Sunday is "Longing".

To me this manicure represents fall and after a long hot summer I'm now actually longing for fall with its crisp air and bright colors. I also find it very cozy to light some candles, snuggle under a fleece blanket and have a cup of hot tea :)

The base is By K Lavender Blue and then I've stamped on a leaf pattern with the stunning purple holo Wild At Heart from Color Club. I used a plate from MoYou London called Mother Nature Collection-03. To break up the purple domination I added some green dots with the magic Reclaim from Nubar.

I'm very happy with this manicure and I got a lot of attention because of it too :)

Gold Fish Nails

A quick stampicure for you today :)

The base is the beautiful By K Blue Lagoon and then I've stamped on a fish pattern with MoYou London plate Sailor Collection-05 and By K Copper Gold.

The result is a subtle gold fish pattern on a glimmering blue base. Beautiful in its own way ;)

Misa High Brow - swatches and review

Even though it's Wednesday there will be no green polish today. I haven't worn green for a while actually. I've been more into fall colors and today I've got a fall show stopper for you! This is High Brow from Misa.

The base is actually purple so depending on lighting it can look both red, brown or purple! Totally stunning! I wore this polish for almost a week! I couldn't bare myself to take it off! The glow from within is magic!


Type of polish: Shimmer.

Number of coats: Two, but it's a possible one coater if you do one thicker coat.

Formula: Excellent formula! Applies totally effortless!

Brush: Medium straight cut brush.

Top Coat: Yes. It actually dries semi matte without a top coat. 

Grade: 5+/5

A perfect shade for autumn! I love it!

Off topic: Flower arrangements

Lela from Le Lack asked me to show some of my flower arrangements and I thought why not?

I've been working as a florist for many years now and right now I'm both working in a flower shop and teaching floristry to adults. Yes, I've got quite long working weeks ;) But I love it!

I hope you enjoy my work! Especially you Lela ;)

On Instagram I regularly show my flower arrangement amongst all polishes and nail arts. If you want to follow me there I'm @jezzlan :)

Shell Fish Nails

A bit later than usual today but better late than never ;) I was worried I wouldn't be able to join at all because of lack of time. I'm starting to teach a new florist class on Wednesday on top of my ordinary work as a florist so busy, busy, busy now and until Christmas...

We've got wonderful weather today, it almost feels like summer, so I thought a very summery nail art would be appropriate.

The base is the magic Glitter Gal Blue and then I've stamped on a shell fish pattern from MoYou London plate Sailor Collection-07 with By K Jet Stream. So it's a mix from Australia, England and Denmark today ;)

I was very pleased with this manicure! It looks like the shell fish is swimming around in blue tropical water glittering in the sun. It makes me wish for more holiday :)

Swiss Bank in London Nails

This post and manicure is dedicated to my dear Swiss friends Christine from Polished Marvels and Natalia from Polished Polyglot. Why? They are Swiss and this manicure is inspired by the spectacular Swiss Bank building in London. It looks like checkered lipstick if you haven't seen it ;)

I hope you like my Swiss tribute ladies! ;)

The base is IsaDora Pool Crush and then I've stamped on a pattern from MoYou London Tourist Collection-05, which of course is the London plate :) Polished used is Essie Blue Rhapsody.

Lacquistry Amazeballz - swatches and review

Today I want to show you a real wow-polish!! It was a gift from my great friend Goldie who snatched a couple of bottles of it the minute there was a release at Lacquistry! Well done and many many thanks darling! <3

Amazeballz is not really a pure glitter polish, nor a pure foil. It's also not really a pure gold color, nor a pure silver. To describe this polish I've had to invent new words. Amazeballz is a gliver goil polish! ;) Lol!

It's totally amazing and so unique! I've got nothing like it in my stash! I've never got so many positive comments from customers and strangers ever!

This is two easy coats and the removal was easier than with regular glitters (because it's a goil of course ;). I had no peel off base but a regular base coat.


Type of polish: Goil (fusion of glitter and foil ;)).

Number of coats: Two.

Formula: Very good! So easy to apply!

Brush: Medium straight cut.

Top Coat: Yes. 

Grade: 5+++++++++++/5

A real show stopper! Get it if you find it! You won't regret it!

Tea Cups Nails

Another green nail art for Green Wednesday :)

The base is By K Glacier, a wonderful minty green. Then I've stamped on a pattern from MoYou London Tourist Collection-05 using Essie Good As Gold.

If you look closely you can see that the patter consists of tea cups and tea pots but at a distance it actually looks as a type of croc pattern :D And gold and mint sure is a match made in heaven! <3

Art Deco Holo Nails

The base for this manicure is the magic Spacecraft from Dance Legend. Then I've stamped on a pattern from MoYou London Pro Collection-06. The stamping polish is Essie No Place Like Chrome.

I'm pretty satisfied with the result. I like that the nails are only partially covered by the pattern so that the lovely holo shines trough :)
