Guerlain Nailpolish

Hi!

When Mary went shopping she tested Guerlain nailpolish out in the Ixi Paris XL and this is the result:

It only needs one layer and dries very fast. It looks very chic and pretty (Mary chose the pink color from above, it’s n° 165) but it only stays 3 days… The price is around €20, so that’s actually very expencive because it stays as long as most cheaper nail polishes.

5 (Or Even More) Ways To Dry Your Nails Fast

Hi!

Waiting until your nailpolish is dry is so anoying, because even after an hour you can still ruin your nail art. Maybe you’ve read our post about the dry drops from Essence and than you know that it works very well. If not check it out here.

We are real big fans of Cutepolish on YouTube (if you don’t know Cutepolish, here’s the channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/cutepolish?feature=g-subs-u Check out the video’s and of course subscribe :) ) and when we saw the video about the 5 ways to dry your nails fast we were really excited!

Here’s the link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FX-ZN1xTMaA You should really watch it because there are very handy tips in it!

Another (more expensive) way to let your nails dry fast is buying a uv nail dryer. You can also hold your hands in the fridge for a while. We know this sounds ridiculous, but it’s a fast, easy and cheap way to dry your nailpolish. :) Also heat helps it dry faster (even if they say it doen’t in the Cutepolish video) so in winter you kan hold them above the fireplace for a while (make sure you don’t burn yourself!) and they’ll dry quickly too or in the summer you can just let them dry very fast in the sun. Also make sure you always aply thin coats.

Colours can look different in the bottle so start with finding the right colors for your nailart.

Ok, so first you'll need a base coat. We've already tested out this Essence Ultra Nail Repair (clic here to see it) and it wasn't that good so that's why Mary's using it as a base coat.

The first color you'll have to put on is a dark pink color. Mary's using one from Top Beauty .

Before you start with painting the roses, make sure the dark pink color on your nails is really dry (you can use Essence Express Dry Drops to make it go faster).  To draw the rose you can use a paintbrush or a toothpick. It's not difficult at all to paint this little rose. Start with a small dot in the middle and then put half circles around it.

For the roses you need a brighter pink color, like this the first colour of her Essence colour³. We've also tested it out (click here to take a look).

Essence Nailwhitener Pencil

Hi!

So we’ve already tested out the french manicure pencil from Ives Roger (wich was, by the way, really good) and now we’re testing the one from Essence

It’s as easy to aply as the one from Ivez Rocher. But this one makes your nails only a bit whiter, not that much and it only stays for one day.

Essence is ofcourse a little cheaper than Ives Rocher, but there’s a real big diference in quality, so better spent some more money on the good one from Ivez Rocher than wasting a little bit money on this one from Essence…

L’Action Nail Treatment

Hi!

Every girl dreams of having perfect shaped, long nails! But some people’s nails are really weak and then they’ll break… Mary’s one of these unlucky people :( So she’s always trying out product who say that they’ll repair your nails, but she hadn’t bought one yet that really worked (read here what she tought of Essence Ultra Nail Repair) until now!

In Di she bought L’Action Nail Treatment. It should repair your nails, make them harder and make them grow faster.  It’s some sort of marker, so you can apply it on your nails very easily. Mary uses it once a day (sometimes twice) and it helps! The short nails she had on the pictures above turned into longer, harder and heathier nails. The only bad thing about it is that you can’t use it while you’re wearing nailpolish ofcourse…

We really love this L’Action Nail Treatment and it really works, so if you have weaker nails like Mary, you should try it!

Ives Rocher French Manicure Pencil

IMG_1086

Hi!

We really love french manicures! It looks natural and very classy. One way to make it is by painting a white line on your nails with white nail polish, but a much easier way is by using a french manicure pencil.

That’s why Mary bought this french manicure pencil from Ives Rocher. It gives a real beautiful white color that stays for 3 days. After that you’ll need to apply it again but of course, like all french manicure pencils, it’s easy and fast to aply. So that’s not really a problem!
