NOTD: Oh Hai Spring!

After cutting my nails down, I've decided to sum up the black theme, because I needed something more cheerful and bright on my nubbinz. Here is Del Sol Island Fever, 3 coats. This polish was sent to me by Elizabeth, thank you dear lady =) Del Sol polishes are supposed to change their color outdoors, but I didn't experience any remarkable color change with this one. Maybe it's because of the weather today, but I placed the bottle in a ray of sunlight and it stayed green and didn't turn aqua. Maybe it will work better on a sunny day, I'm hopeful!
Anyway, I stamped the manicure with flowers from plate m80 and Konad special polish in red. Then I used my pink Konad nail art pen to place dots in the middle of the flowers:


Nails are out of focus here:


I took these pictures with dad's camera. So far I like them more than the ones taken with my own cam. I guess I'll experiment a bit more with it.

  2. Hey Jen! Thank you =D Why don't you love spring? Doesn't seeing sun more make you happy? Or are you a 100% fall person? =)

  3. I don't really like this mani - to much color. =) But your nails look adorable even when they're shorter.

  4. Sasha, I was actually between taking pictures and removing it, but then I was too tired and my cuticles too dry, so I left it be =D Manicures with contrasting colors such as this one are not exactly my style either, but well, having cut the nails sort of stopped my mind =D

  9. Me I love it, it's beautiful. We need color and joy in this grey world. I especially love the red and pink work. I'm sure it'd be gorgeous over white or black. And your short nails are quite sexy too, you know! Don't even worry.

    (I am a Spring and overall a Summer person - I feel dead inside when it's fall and winter - I only feel fully alive when days are long and sunny - weird for a pale girl dressed in black and white, eh?)

  10. I promise you, in full sun, that polish changes to a bright and intense Aqua. I know, cuz I wore mine on a bright sunny day and it was FUN FUN FUN! So much so, I went and bought 5 more colors. :)
    So I do hope you get some bright sun while you're wearing this to fully enjoy it. I haven't worn any of the other colors because, while we're getting a lot of sunny days (gotta love the coastal desert of California) we are getting a lot of much needed rain too...so intermittent sun is no place for this polish...Just waiting til March/April and again in July then I'll wear it all the way through to January! I picked this one for you because the base color is green. :)

  12. Thank you, Tennsley =)
    My dear Nathalie, I know you love short nails, that makes me happy and comfortable =D I should try this pattern on other colors... The new plates are amazing! =) Like you, I also enjoy sunny and long days =) I feel happy without a reason around May/June.
    Thanks, gildedangel =)
    Liz, I'm sure it does. I just waited for a drastic change in a tiny bit of sun, I guess =D Next time, I'm going to use this on my mint franken. It will look much better on a opaque base, I guess =) I'm so excited to see the change in full sun! I wouldn't be able to get this polish on my own, you rock! <3 Oh and please copy me, I love to see interpretations =D
