Nail Artists You Should Know – Mix and Match Nails by Marine Loves Polish

August 19, 2014 in Nail Art, Nails

Hello my beautiful friends. First of all, I wanted to apologize for being a bad, bad blogger lately. Nail Artists You Should Know post was supposed to appear yesterday, but life happened and I had to postpone it. I had a long, 10 hour shift at work yesterday and when I got home I just collapsed on bed and passed out immediately. Luckily, I got a good sleep, so with a renewed energy I am posting this wonderful mani right now. The guest blogger on Paulina’s Passions today is a very talented young lady from France. Please welcome Marine from Marine Loves Polish! I have admired her nails for a long time and I am always wowed at the perfect stamping she makes! How is that even possible to make it so perfect? Well, Marine does! I really love how neat and clean her manis are and the photos are clear and crisp. Oh, just c heck out her blog and see for yourself :) Today Marine made beautiful mix and match nails. I love the color combo and yes, the perfect stamping! Thank you so much darling for joining my blog today and for making these beautiful mix and match nails.


Hello Lovelies! I’m Marine from Marine Loves Polish and today I’m honored to be invited by the lovely and talented Paulina for a guest post. I started my blog about a year and a half ago, but I always loved nail polish and started nail art in 2011 when I was living in London (I’m actually moving back to London in September for at least a year and I’m beyond exciteeeeed! :D)!




For today’s mani, I went for a mix and match nails.
On my thumb, pointer and pinky fingers, I’ve used Barry M Dragon which is a really pretty pink and added little silver studs.
On my middle finger, I’ve applied two coats of the beautiful Nails Inc. Abbey Road. Finally, on my ring finger, I’ve used my favorite white, Essie Blanc and stamped a design from the MoYou Sailor 03 plate with Barry M Silver Foil Effect.
Quite simple, but I like the finished look.





What do you think?
Thank you very much once again Paulina for having me on your beautiful blog!
Have a nice day everyone!


Polishers Inc. Recreate a Pattern – Pretty Rose Nail Art

August 17, 2014 in Nail Art, Nails

Hello my beautiful friends. Today it’s another Polishers Inc. nail art challenge and I am so excited, because the theme is “Recreate a Pattern”. You know how I love to recreate the patterns I always come across on Pinterest, so I couldn’t miss today’s challenge. I made some lovely rose nail art, but before I show you the pictures, I would like to introduce the newest member of Polishers Inc. team, Emma from the Wasting Lifestyle. She is a nail blogger from Finland, Helsinki and I am super excited she has joined us. Emma’s blog and nails are wonderful and the photos she takes are stunning.

Just to remind you about the rest of the crew, there is Malene (Nail Escapades), Mina (Cubbiful), Charlotte (Chakalaquer), Mariah (rijah), Paulina (fall in…nailLove!), Louise (Tips and Top Coat) and Karine (Nailderella).


So here is my pretty rose nail art that I recreated from this pattern. I am not sure who the creator of the pattern is. I found it on Pinterest and was trying to search for an original source, but no success.

Rose Pattern

How pretty is it? I love the tiny little polka dots and the soft roses. I tried to recreate it as best as I could, but I think I got the proportions a bit wrong. Nevertheless, I really love how the nails came out. I had a lot of different patterns saved for this challenge on my laptop, but I chose to make roses again. You know how much I love making florals, I just couldn’t resist when I saw these pretties.


I started off with a pretty baby blue base, which is OPI Gargantuan Green Grape and I applied around 3 coats. It’s not a super opaque polish, but it applies very nicely, so even if you have multiple layers, it doesn’t get thick. Then I made the tiny little dots using the tip of my brush. I don’t own a thin dotting tool like this, so I went with a brush. It was actually very easy to dot all the nails.


The light pink base of my roses was made with China Glaze Spring in My Step. It’s such a gorgeous baby pink! Then I took a pretty coral shade to make the details. I used Catrice Meet Me At Coral Island. I love how these two polishes make the roses look so soft. The leaves are made with a dark green Nicka K Jade.


What do you guys think of these vintage looking rose nail art? Please let me know your thought in the comment section below and have a lovely Sunday.

Also, please don’t forget to check all the other beautiful pattern recreations.

Bright Leopard Print Nails with China Glaze Sun of a Peach

August 14, 2014 in Nail Art, Nails

Hello my beautiful friends. I hope you are all doing great and that you are enjoying your day. Today I want to show you a different twist on leopard print nails. This simple design is perfect for summer holidays. Not only it involves a very bright nail polish, but it’s also very easy and fast to make. You won’t have to waste the precious summer time for complicated nail art.


Told you it was bright? You probably recognize this beautiful, bright orange. It’s China Glaze Sun of a Peach from their last year summer collection, Sunsational. This has to be my favorite collection from China Glaze and I am using the polishes all the freakin time. The colors are just perfect for summer and so bright! The nude nail polish that I used for my leopard base is Rimmel Bare Necessities. I don’t have many Rimmel polishes, but they are actually really good. The ones I own, don’t disappoint.


I made my leopard print nails with a small nail art brush and then mattified it. This design is actually inspired (or rather a copy) by @constantlypolished and you can find the original creation here. I actually love how beautiful and classy her leopard print nails look. I didn’t have a subtle peach color, so I went all the way with a bright neon.

The studs come from the Born Pretty Store and you can find them HERE. If you love round studs, but you are unsure what size you want, just try this product. In this wheel you get three different sizes studs in gold and silver. Really useful and I use them all the time.
