Black, red and purple palm tree nail art

Black, red and purple was the previous When Colours Collide challenge colors and I did a palm tree free hand. Loved the end result. :)

Polishes used:

Wet N Wild - Red A Good Book / Ballon Rouge
KIKO - 333
HM - Purple Patch
Maybelline - Black Out

ILNP - Valentina, swatch

Time for a swatch, which is the beautiful Valentina from ILNP. It's a sheer blue duochrome/multichrome polish which color shifts to pink and golden orange and yellow where the shine hits and is green and tealish at the side of the nails. Absolutely stunning imho and I like how my nails almost looks porcelain with it on. The down-side is that it's coat-hungry and below is 6 coats. I assume shorter nails could get by with less. But, this polish is also beautiful for layering so I guess for those who prefer less coats that would be an option. :)

Neon nail art with blue and black glitter gradient

A neon yellow mani with a glitter gradient. Loved this one! This is also for nail challenge collaborative this month which happened to have the theme Neon.

Hope that there'll soon be some more action here soon. Because I'll be joining 31dc again, and as I've longed for it. But first this:

Freehand 3D water melon nail art

I just love making water melon nail art but somehow I haven't got them photographed before.

I did a neon pink to pink gradient. Did the green smiley and the water melon pattern outside. Then seeds and outlining and shine in white. Hope you'll like. :D

Here's both hands. Think the gradient got better on my cindy but ofc the freehand was better on my left hand.

Polishes used:
Ztiz (White)
Kleancolor - Neon Pink
Adena - No. 11
HM - Green Street
Essence - Brazil Jungle
Essence - Black Is Back

Neon drag marble in yellow and pink

Wow, time flies quickly. Anhow, this was the base for a mani but since it looked cool on its own I decided to show it like this too. This is basically what for years was referred as a needle dragging, but these days has been updated to be called drag marble. Never the less, I like this vibrant version of it. I should really make more with this techinque, for a couple of years ago I did a lot of these just because it's so quick and fun looking. XD

I've btw decided that I'll go back to my previous routine, that whatever I post on IG should be posted in my blog the same day. Will see if it works though. :)

Polishes used:
Kleancolor - Funky Yellow
China Glaze - Beach Cruise-R
