Swirly Rose Nail Art Design

Since I don't paint my nails as often at the moment, when I do paint them I tend to gravitate towards soak off gels, so that I can enjoy my manicures for longer. Here is a design I did for midsummer, a few weeks back.

Swirly Rose Nail Art Design with Pink Gellac nail polish.
I have painted all nails with two coats of Pink Gellac Bridal Beige, then swirled two shades of pink together on a piece of paper to form the base for the roses. I applied the mixture with a thin brush and cured in the lamp. Then I added a little bit of extra shimmer to them as well as the tiny leafs. 

The polishes used in this manicure have previously been sent to me for review by Pink Gellac. When doing this manicure I also tried out two new products that have been sent to me by Pink Gellac, the Vita Primer and the Vita Base. They did not work well for me at all, as you can see from the fifth picture, the nail colour is lifting from the nail, and this just 48 hours after painting the design. I used the same base combination on my mom and sister and they had similar issues. So I would advice you to stay clear of that base combination!

Pink Gellac Vita Primer and Vita Base Review

Polishes used: Pink Gellac Bridal Beige, Pink Gellac Rockstar Red, Pink Gellac Radiant White, Pink Gellac Glamorous Peach and Pink Gellac Gentle Jade.


På svenska:
Då jag inte målar mina naglar lika ofta just nu så blir det ofta gellack när jag väl målar. Detta för att kunna njuta av målade naglar lite längre. Den här manikyren gjorde jag för midsommar, för ett par veckor sen.

Jag har målat alla naglar med två lager av Bridal Beige, sen har jag lagt två nyanser av rosa på en bit papper och halvblandat dem innan jag plockade upp färgen med en tunn pensel och målade rosorna. Dessa har sen härdat i lampa innan jag la på lite extra skimrande färg samt målade de små löven.

Lacken i denna manikyr har tidigare skickats till mig för recension av Pink Gellac. När jag målade manikyren passade jag också på att testa ett par nya basprodukter de skickat mig, Vita Primer och Vita Base. De var dock riktigt dåliga. På bild fem ser man hur lacket släppt från nageln, och detta efter bara 48 timmar. Jag använde samma bas-kombination på min mamma och syster också, och de är lika besvikna med manikyrer som inte ens håller en vecka. Rekommenderar alltså att man undviker dessa!

Pink Gellac Love Affair Collection - swatches and review

In the beginning of June I received the latest collection from Pink Gellac in the mail. The Love Affair Collection consist of five shades, with four being very discreet, and one a bit more colourful. Here are my swatches of the collection, that was sent to me for review by Pink Gellac. All opinions are my own.

First up is Decent White, number 319, a creamy white that covers in just two coats. This is almost paper white, but with a drop or two of gray, making it slightly easier to wear. If you're looking for a white/almost white, this is a great choice!

Next up is Powder Pink, number 320, which is just a bit more colourful than the white above. The colour leans quite apricot for a pink. It also covers in two coats.

Now for my favourite of the collection, number 321, Satin Pink. This is a gorgeous shimmer that covers in three coats. It is similar to Radiant White (304) from the Boudoir Charm collection earlier this year, but this has a more peachy base, where that one had a white base. Somehow the effect is less golden/yellow compared to 304, but you still get all the shimmer.

Then we have a shimmer of the more discreet variety. 322 Sparkle Peach is a light peachy shade with a barely there shimmer (two coats). The shimmer is silvery making the shade more cool, but since it's so sparse it doesn't affect the colour all that much.

Finally a different colour! This is 323, Gentle Jade, another two-coater. The green colour is slightly dusky/muted, and leans quite cold. Its colour-intensity is similar to 284 Spring Green, but that has a lot of yellow in it, where this is much colder.

Här kommer bilder på den senaste kollektionen från Pink Gellac, som landade i min brevlåda i början på juni. Love Affair kollektionen består av fem lack, varav fyra är väldigt diskreta, och det femte har åtminstone lite färg. Lacken har skickats till mig från Pink Gellac, men det är förstås mina egna åsikter jag skriver om.

Retro Blue Floral Manicure

I have decided to accept that my attention is currently not 100 percent focused on nails, and therefore I will blog sporadically, when I feel like it. Since I last posted, S and I bought our first car, so we are now mobile in a Covid-safe way! It feels great, and the pain of street parking hasn't quite struck yet ^-^.

These nails are apparently from April, so they've been sitting on the camera's memory card for a while before I got round to editing and now posting. Since then I've lost track of whose manicure I was inspired by, so I can't link and give credit, but will just say that this is inspired by someone on Instagram.

Jag har beslutat mig för att acceptera att jag just nu bara har lust att blogga ibland, lite sporadiskt. Mitt fokus är på andra saker så det får bli inlägg när andan faller på. Sen mitt sista inlägg har S och jag köpt oss vår första bil, så vi är nu mobila på ett Covid-säkert sätt! Det känns jätteroligt, och besväret med att parkera på gatan har inte riktigt hunnit landa än ^-^.


Dagens naglar är från i april, så det har fått hänga på kamerans minneskort ett tag innan jag nu editerat och lägger upp dem på bloggen. Under den tiden har jag slarvat bort inspirationsbilden jag utgick från, så kan tyvärr inte säga något om vem som gjort originalet, bara att jag hittat det på Instagram (förstås).
