#Nailstorming // Fairytales

Hi guys! It's Sunday, so I have a Nailstorming nail art to show you today. If you don't know what the Nailstorming is, just click ↑↑ the link above. The prompt of this Sunday was "Contes de Fées", which means Fairytales! ♥ 

When I was a little girl, I had a book (well actually it was my big brother's) named "Raconte-moi une histoire ce soir". For every day of the year, there was a short story to read before going to sleep. I loved this book so much!!! 

On January 04-05-06th, you can read the tale of Rapunzel. Oh this one, I read it and re-read it and re-re-read it, lol! Well, for the little girl with a very long blond hair that I was, it was quite a fascinating story, eheh!

So obviously, when I saw the prompt of today, I immediately wanted to do a Rapunzel mani. A freehand nail art was my first idea, but I didn't have the time, or rather the courage (lol). So I tried to find another idea... I thought I could find some fairies or fairytale related designs on my stamping plates. And what did I find? A MoYou plate with Rapunzel on it!!! Yay! I had totally forgotten about those Fairytale collection plates, oops!

I was so happy!!! I grabbed my Über Mat and did some reverse stampings. And it was not that easy... my clear stamper didn't picked up the image properly and my all-time favorite stamper didn't want to transfer the pattern on my mat! WTH?! 

After several several tries, I finally stamped the two first images. But, not the other ones... So for those, I did some stamper decals instead and it was a success on the first try! Phew! 

Here is what I used for this nail art:
stamping: MoYou Fairytale Collection - 04 and an old black polish.
index: Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream and a mix of Kiko 355 Canary Yellow and Kiko 323 Milk Chocolate for the roof of the tower.
middle finger: few spots with Kiko 325 Grey Green and OPI Skull & Glossbones.
ring fingerKiko 355 Canary Yellow for the hair, Miss Cop n°43 for the face, Kiko 290 Dark Magenta for the flower and piCture pOlish Wisteria for the dress.
pinky: same polishes for the hair and Kiko 534 Green Forest for the "trees".
and finallya layer of top coat to seal the designs + 1 coat of Girly Bits Polish Matte'rs to make it looks like I had real drawings on the nails ^^

What do you think of this mani? Did you recognize Rapunzel before reading it was her?

Oh and btw, did you see that I changed the design of the blog? To celebrate spring, I added some colors and I made a new header ♥ Happy Spring everyone!!!

Hi guys! Today I'm showing you another Swatch Your Old Nail Polishes manicure with a skittlette that I did last September.

Essence Fame Fatal (Colour & Go 114)

Oh red nail polish... I don't really like you on my nails, lol! If you know me a little, you know that red isn't favorite nail polish color... It's just too "femme fatale" for me!
So when I was looking for a red nail polish to use for nail art, cause everyone need at least one red polish, I came across this red by Essence, with THE perfect name ^^
