NOTD + Featured nail art + mini Giveaway (closed)

Hello my Beauties,

how are you doing?
Today’s post has 3 different parts, that i’m sure you are going to like. So grab your favorite cup of tea & let’s begin.

By the end of march my Twitter friend Radi and i have decided to do a little nail polish swap. As Radi lives in Bulgaria she was kind enough to offer me some of the polishes that are being sold there & i on my part of course picked out a few german based brands for her. 
You can see her post on the swap HERE. She also did a beautiful design with the KIKO Sugar matt, that was originally the idea for a swap. 

Today i got the parcel from Bulgaria and obviously couldn’t wait to try some of the sparkling goodies, that i’ve found inside. 
Perfect nail polish, Golden Rose jolly jewels 103I tried my best to take a few good pictures in today’s horrible light, but the gloomy & grey weather didn’t make it easier for me. I really hope you get the idea anyways.

The Jolly Jewels polish has quite a thick consistency and is really opaque in just one coat.

I really like how the two polishes became one mani. Now i’m really curious for how long it’s going to stay on my nails.
Have you tried any of these polishes yet?

As the second part of the post i would like to share with you Radi’s guest post with you. I asked her to do a nice & fun spring nail art and she did a really great job, if you ask me. But see for yourself and don’t forget to visit her blog, to see more great swatches and design ideas.

Hello everyone!

ladybugs nail design steps

1. Make the pink french and when it`s dry paint the bodies of the ladybugs next to each other.
2. Outline the ladybugs with black acrylic paint. Make their legs, dots and heads, too.
3. Make two white dots and smaller black ones over them in every ladybug`s head as eyes.
And a little waterry white paint onto the wings` edge.
4. Cover with top coat!
And here is one closer look of theese cute ladybugs on my both hands:
