Today is the second day of 31 Day Nails challenge and I have prepared a simple orange manicure. I don’t have many orange polishes to be honest, mostly because it is one of my leas favorite colors. Not sure why, it is beautiful, but just not my cup of tea. Here is my simple orange […]

MoneySupermarket.com is calling all beauty bloggers to demonstrate tutorials how to achieve beautiful nails with minimum resources. Here’s the flowers I made with very small resources: I have gotten so many compliments wearing this flower design.

So I have been thinking about doing something different today. I got a cool idea to try reverse taping. I cut a heart shape into a piece of tape, instead of using the heart shaped hole, I attached the cut out heart on my nail and painted as usual. After my nails dried I removed […]

Hello fellow lacqueristas! Today I used something I usually don’t like that much… dark polish. And to make it even harder to take off, I used lots of glitter too! The only reason I am not the biggest fan of dark nail polish is that it stains nails and fingers and it takes lot’s of rubbing before […]
