Accessorize Aztec

I just love this polish, it is Accessorize Aztec. When I first saw it I though that it was too dark and not really especial, but I had read in some groups that it was a must have and I am glad that it is part of my collection now. It is a beautiful multichrome between purple, gold, blue and green. I was thinking about stamping it, but I didn’t find anything appropiate, so I just wore it alone for a few days, and I loved it. I used three coats and then I applied Seche Vite. It is supposed to be a dupe from Orly Space Cadet, but I don’t own any Orly, so I can’t compare. I have another Accessorize polish to show you soon, and it is as beautiful as this one. 
Also, have you noticed the different shape in my nails? I broke three of them and the only solution I found was to have this oval shape for a few weeks. At first I didn’t like it at all, but I am getting used to it and I actually like it a lot now. Which shape do you prefer?
There is a lot of pictures because I wanted to show you all the different colors you can see.

Max Factor Fantasy Fire

Today I want to show you a very special nail polish: Max Factor Fantasy Fire! It is a dupe from Clarins 230, which is very expensive. This one is a cheap alternative and I believe it is stunning, I don’t think I will ever think about buying Clarins 230. The only problem is that the bottle is really small, but that makes it even more special! I tried to wear it alone, but when I applied one coat in one finger I realized that I was going to need a lot of coats to make it opaque, and I really didn’t want to use that much. I decided to apply one coat of China Glaze Black Leather and then two of Fantasy Fire, and the result is awesome! I couldn’t change my mani for a lot of days, it was too beautiful! I hope you like it too. What do you think about dupes? Will you buy Clarins 230 if you had Max Factor Fantasy Fire? I hope you are all having a great week!

Hoy os quiero enseñar un esmalte muy especial: ¡Max Factor Fantasy Fire! Es una copia de Clarins 230, que es carísimo. Este esmalte es una alternative barata, pero que creo que es impresionante, nunca necesitaré comprar el de Clarins. El único problema es que la botella es muy pequeña, pero eso lo hace aún más especial. Intenté llevarlo solo, pero cuando di la primera capa en un dedo comprendí que iba a necesitar muchas para hacerlo completamente opaco, y no estaba por la labor de usar mucho, así que finalmente puse dos capas de Fantasy Fire sobre una de China Glaze Black Leather. El resultado final es increíble, estuve durante cuatro días contemplando mis uñas y sin querer cambiarlas. ¿Qué piensas sobre las copias? ¿Comprarías Clarins 230 si ya tuvieras Fantasy Fire? Espero que estéis teniendo una buena semana.

Teal Tuesday – 3D

Today I have the first post of Teal Tuesdays, a group that I just joined and that I am really excited about. Each week, we decide a technique or theme and we do a mani using the colour teal (I don’t have many of those, so I will use blue, green…). Today we are doing a 3D manicure, or tealicure as we say. I only had some gold pearls, so I decided to place some of them in a row over Passe Nati Dancers Valsa Cintilante, which I love. To place the pearls I picked them with a plastic stick and put them over a coat of wet Seche Vite. Do you like this type of manis? Don’t forget to check out the rest of the blogs participating in Teal Tuesdays.

Patagonia nails

I finally managed to edit some photos and I got some free time, so I can write a post. Today I want to show you some especial pictures. I took them during my summer vacations in Argentina. What you see in the back of my nails is a glacier! They were taken in Patagonia, and this glacier is called Perito Moreno. For this mani I used Impala Cremoso Inocense, a very beautiful lavender, but I needed four coats to make it opaque. Then I stamped using Konad White (I finally got a few ones, I really wanted to have some good quality stamping polish) using Bundle Monster BM-14. Finally, I added a coat of Essie Matte About You (I don’t know why, but the polish of my nail tips disappeared over time) and I really liked the final result. It looks more like a Christmas mani, but in Patagonia it was winter, so totally appropriate! Do you like to do themed manis? I hope you have a great weekend!

Por fin he conseguido pasar todas mis fotos al ordenador y he podido editarlas. Hoy os voy a enseñar una manicura muy especial para mí. La hice mientras estaba de vacaciones en Argentina, en este caso en la Patagonia. Estas fotos están hechas en el glaciar Perito Moreno. ¿No os parece alucinante? Para esta manicura utilicé Impala Cremoso Inocense, es un lavanda muy bonito, pero necesité cuatro capas para hacerlo completamente opaco. Luego lo estampé con Konad Blanco (por fin he conseguido algunos esmaltes para estampar en condiciones) y el plato Bundle Monster BM-14. Finalmente, añadí una capa de Essie Matte About You (que hizo que el esmalte de las puntas de mis uñas desapareciera un poco con el tiempo) y quedé muy contenta con el resultado final. Parece una manicura más apropiada para Navidades, pero en la Patagonia era invierno, así que genial. ¿Os gustan las manicuras temáticas? Espero que tengáis un fin de semana genial.

Will be back very soon!

I know I’ve been away for a long time, but I am crazy busy! I have a lot of pictures ready to show you, I just need to find the time to prepare all the posts. Hopefully I will be back this week.
