Hello all polish lovers!

It's another day of summer challenge and the theme is Ladybird/Ladybug! I was thinking a long time about what I'll create on my nails as I didn't want to do a classic ladybird (red nail wish ladybird on it in black lines and dots). I chose to paint an animated ladybird on one accent nail standing on a leaf and the rest of the nails red with black dots. 

I've used China Glaze Poinsettia, KIKO 343, Nails Inc. Dulux Forest Falls and acrylic colours.

And here is my manicure:

I've also created a tutorial of how I've done this mani:

And this was my inspiration for the ladybird/ladybug:

Hi everybody!

I finally own Ozotic Elytra polishes!!! I absolutely love them in the bottle but they've disappointed me a bit on the nails. I will try more combinations so I can explore their full potential. Today I've layered Ozotic 529 over KIKO 379.

Ozotic 529 - multichrome glitter in a clear base. It is really hard to describe this polish. The glitter shifts from dark blue, almost purple through lighter shades of blue to pink and burnt orange shades. Amazing! I was staring at the bottles for a very long time when they've finally arrived. I don't know if it's just this combination but it didn't look as good on the nail. I haven't used any topcoat so the surface is uneven.

The removal was the same like with all glitters - difficult to say the least :) Use the foil method or at least hold the soaked cotton pad on your nail for few minutes. That's what I do instead of preparing foil stripes.

And here is the mattified version using MASH Matte Top Coat. I actually like the mattified version much more, the top coat makes it very elegant.

I've bought the Ozotics at Harlow & Co. and MASH Top Coat can be purchased at mashnails.com
