Hello lovelies,

 

It's the last day of the month and that means Nailvengers Assemble! nail art challenge! Joining me in the challenge will be Sammy (The Nailasaurus), Alice (One Nail To Rule Them All) and Allie (Brit Nails). Amelia (xAmeliax) won't be able to participate this month.

 

This month's theme is Gradient Nail Art. I'm already in kind of a Halloween mood so I did dark-tipped gradient that reminds me of zombie-ish theme.

For this manicure I have used Pandora's Polish, a brand new to me. It is part of PANDORA’S Makeup Box brand, a brainchild of Susan Kirsch. The creation of PANDORA’S Makeup Box was an extension of Susan’s love for people and makeup, as well as her understanding of her clients' needs and comfort with their everyday makeup routine.

I've been sent two shades to try - Chai Latte and Flanel. By themselves they are very chic and office-friendly and very nice for Autumn season. They both have very good and well-pigmented formula which means two coats were fully opaque. Both shades are available here.

 

I've decided to combine Chai Latte and Flanel into this gradient and then I took and inspiration from Boom Nails LDN and drawn just simple lines over it using Nails Supreme Nail Art Pen.

Hello lovelies,

 

When I did the partial cube pattern for piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2014, I couldn't leave it just like that so I took the time and coloured third shade in to create side of the cubes. For this I have chosen subtle piCture pOlish Tiffany. It did change the design slightly but not dramatically and I thought it is worth sharing :)

 

The polishes I've used are piCture pOlish Tiffany, Atomic and Moody Blues and black acrylic paint. All polishes available at piCture pOlish website.

I'm also wearing two new rings from Astrid & Miyu*. The first one is Silver Zodiac Ring Libra with two opal stones that fits nicely on my middle finger (available here). The second ring is a Classic Silver Chevron Midi ring with a little crystal. This ring is available here.

 

The Astrid & Miyu rings are so far the best quality rings I've worn yet. They are sturdy and well-crafted which makes it very easy for me to show them to you and recommend them :)
