Hi everyone!

Happy thursday! What I have for you today is another simple nail art that I did, my Sweet and Simple Candy Nail Art.

Polishes that I used for this mani are the following;
Bobbie Heartstone -Pink
Bobbie Innatelove - Periwinkle
Bobbie Tranquility - Mint

Colorful Swirls Nail Art

Hey Guys!

TGIF! This will be very quick, I just want to share to you my NOTD, if you can remember, last Feb, I tried doing some stamping decals, and I got hooked so today, I did another nail art using that technique.

Here's my Colorful Swirls Nail Art


What I actually planned to do over my sparkly base was to draw some cute pastel roses, but I saw some stamping plates and lots of pretty jewel colored polishes, so I ended up doing another Stamping Decal Nail Art.
It was a really exhausting technique TBH, but it was worth it!

The Products that I used for this Mani are all from QT Nail Color, except from the Stamping plate which is from Born Pretty Store.
Base is QT Nail Magic Cosmic Sand.
for the swirls; Yellow- QT Cosmic Gold, Green- QT Moss Green, Pink- 18k Gold, and Aqua- QT Intense Green
TC is QT 3in1 Colorless and I also used QT Polish Dry, Quick Dry Drops.
Stamping Plate is BPL-027

And that's it for today! Hope you guys liked it. ;)

QT Nail Color Nail Magic Collection Swatches and Review

Hey Guys!

Happy Thursday! What I have for you today are the swatches and review of the new Nail Magic Collection from a new Local Brand called QT Nail Color.
For those who just knew about QT today, they're the only Nail Polish brand here in the Philippines that is Big 5 Free, meaning it doesn't have any Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Camphor, and Formaldehyde Resin. QT Nail Color is also Cruelty Free, and doesn't stain the nails, and safe for expecting moms and kids.

Let's go to the swatches!

First up is QT Nail Magic Callisto, it's a bronze-y gold foil polish, on my nails are two(2) medium coats, no top coat, perfect formula, not too thick nor too thin, drying time is normal. Dries to a glossy finish.

 Last but not the least, QT Nail Magic Cosmic Sand, a superrr sparkly champagne silver foil polish, on my nails are two(2) medium coats, same awesome formula with the first two polishes, not too thick nor too thin, drying time is normal. Dries to a slightly gritty sparkly glossy finish.

And that's it!

Here are my final thoughts about QT's Nail Magic Collection, I love all of 'em the formula of all the 3 polishes are really perfect, usually foils are super thick, but not the nail magic collection, they're very smooth, and easy to apply. Of course I won't forget to tell you my ultimate fave from the collection, it's Cosmic Sand, I'm hoping there will be more colors soon, pastels will be super awesome!

Caronia Popsicle Collection: Swatches and Review

Hi everyone!

Happy Easter!! 2 Weeks ago, Caronia, launched their new collection for Summer, and that's what I have for you gals today, The Caronia Popsicle Collection Swatches and Review. :)

Starting to feel the heat of summer? Cool down with these refreshing shades from Caronia! 

First up is Caronia Peach Perfect; Caronia described this baby as a nude shade with a slight hint of pink for a rosy look.
For me, it's more of a very pale peach-y creme polish. On my nails are 3 thin coats, formula is a bit thin and streaky but build-able with 3 coats, dries to a glossy finish, drying time is normal.
Here are pics of Peach Perfect

 Next up is Caronia Lemon Cool; Caronia described this as a "happy yellow" shade with a slightly glossy finish.
IRL it's a very lovely Daffodil Yellow Creme filled with a very subtle amount of Gold Micro shimmer. On my nails are 2 medium coats, the formula is perfect, not too thick nor too thin, dries to a glossy finish, drying time is normal.
Here are some snaps of Lemon Cool:

 Now we're at the exciting part, third polish from the collection is Caronia Brain Freeze; Caronia described this as a pale blue shade in matte finish that just draws attention to your fingertips.
It's a Deep Sky Blue that dries to a Satin Matte Finish, on my nails are 2 thin coats, the formula is very good (usually mattes are super hard to work with but this one is different) and it dries faster than normal.
Here are some pics of Brain Freeze:

 Last but not the least is Caronia Tequila Sunrise; it is described by Caronia as a subdued red orange.
It is a Deep Salmon that dries to a Satin Matte Finish, on my nails are 2 thin coats, same awesome formula with brain breeze, dries faster than normal.
Here are some photos:

And.. that's it!
Here are my final thoughts about the Caronia Popsicle Collection:
The collection is almost perfect! the creme and shimmer are definitely a hit for those office girls like me who loves to wear subtle shades to work, It'll be more awesome if the shimmer in lemon cool is more noticeable though. And the mattes, they are so easy to work with, usually mattes are hard to apply because the dry so fast, but the formula of Brain Freeze and Tequila Sunrise is simply amazing, Caronia definitely stepped up their game. Let's hope they release more colors and more different finishes (like flakies ehem! and ehem, holos!) soon ;)

Oh one last thing, Caronia will be releasing a limited number of Popsicle Collection set with free Caronia sticky note pad, so if you're planning to buy the whole collection, better watch out for that set. ;)

Popsicle Nail Art

Hey guys!!

TGIF! Last thursday I attended a Summer Collection Launch Party of a well known local nail polish brand, and the party's theme was Popsicles and Sweets, what I have for you guys today is the Nail Art that I wore to that Launch Party, My Popsicle Nail Art.

The nail art design was actually a last minute idea, I was suppose to sport a Lollipops and Candies nail art, but I realized that I did that design several times last year so I ended up doing Pastel Popsicles on my nails.

Here's what my Gradient base looked like before I added the popsicles and dots.

Polishes that I used for this mani are the ff;
Girl Stuff Sophia (nude)
Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet (mint green)
QT Gotta Go (Teal)
Sally Hansen Insta Dry (dots)
and for the rest, I used acrylic paints.

Here's one last pic 

And that's it for today!
Hope you guys liked it!

Bright Floral Nail Art

Hey everyone!

Happy Wednesday!
Recently, I've been playing with summer colors, I was swatching some of my new polishes earlier, and after applying a color that really caught my attention, I want to wear the color for work and decided to add a simple art over it, I ended up adding some flowers, so... this is another Floral Nail Art. ;)


Instead of doing my usual 5 petal flowers, I tried something different this time, the finish product looked a lot like poppies.

Photo below is a swatch of the base polish that I used for the mani, 2 coats of QT Gotta Go a gorgeous bright teal creme.

Other polishes the I used for the nail art are;
Revlon Parfumerie China Flower (red)
Chic Ji-hye (purple)
El-Corazon Active Bio-Gel (green leaves)
and some acrylic paint (brown, black and white).

Here's one last pic;

That's it for today!

My First Ever Splatter Nail Art

Hey guys!

Happy Monday! It's been a while since my last post, I had a hard time importing my photos from my camera to my computer, my Instagram account is always updated though, so you can follow me there to see my latest nail art and swatches, my handle is @wownails0816 also there's a link on the right that you can check ;) So what I have for you today is my current Nail Art, it's My First Ever Splatter Nail Art.


I've wanted to try this technique ever since I saw it on the internet, finally! I did it! I really enjoyed doing this mani, the process is a tad messy and polish consuming though.

Photo below is a swatch of the base polish that I used for this nail art; it's Chic Mi-cha from their new K-pop Collection, a super pretty soft pink crelly, dries to a super shiny (and oh so squishy) finish.

Other polishes that I used for this nail art are;
Caronia Chasse (cobalt blue)
and Chic Ji-hye (purple)

Here's one last pic:

And that's it for today!
Hope you guys liked it!
