Easy one today for letter "K"; I think I own more Kikos than any other brand, closely followed by China Glaze. So I had loads of polishes to choose from, and yet here's another manicure from the vault! My poor archives are now filled with crappy pictures, for everything else has been posted for the ABC Challenge. At least I'm giving them a good use ;)
Today I have my first take at needle marbling, done with China Glaze liquid leather and Kiko nº 383 Oil Blue. It's close to a fail to me just depending on the day I look at the pictures. I guess I am in an optimistic mood today because I won't post it as such ;)
Apart from this I am working my ass off; just another day at the office. I hope to be back to living (hence, blogging) soon. Maybe tomorrow? Please bear with me a little more...
Today was the day the Code was presented in Madrid. Guess what? I am in Barcelona. Whatever, the manicure ideas you gave me are safe in my head and will come to light sooner or later :)
Have a nice day & go check the other challenge ladies' ideas for today!
I for one like it - and I think you should too :)ResponderEliminar
^^ Thanks Maria!Eliminar
From far away I thought it was a gradient. Then at a closer look I thought they kind of looked like aquatic plants. It is very interesting technique. Maybe you could do grass blades? I love the deep blue color. It is hard to resign to the fact we live at work, work comprises a large majority of our lives... and we can't escape it. I hope you have some time off soon. :)ResponderEliminar
They do look like aquatic plants or smoke going up! I need to take another try sometime soon, that was only the beginning :pEliminar
This is so gorgeous. I hope that work gets a little bit easier for you. <3ResponderEliminar
I think it turned out great. I've never heard of Kiko's before but that's a lovely shade!ResponderEliminar
Oh you haven't? Well I am sure you will in the future! Keep the brand in mind :)Eliminar
These are gorgeous! Definitely not a fail! :D I loveee the blue and the needle swirls you did! Beautiful! ♥ResponderEliminar
:D Thank you!Eliminar
The color is not necessarily my fav out of the ones you've shown but the way you cooperate the black swirl to it is really cool and makes it look catching.ResponderEliminar
Hehe I don't own many KIKO polishes but the first one I bought was because of you ;)
Hope you soon have free time to blog again! Don't stress yourself too much, okay! :D
^^ Thank you! That's great news! I absolutely love the brand :) And about the stress... I'll do my best!Eliminar
SO NOT a fail!! I absolutely LOVE this!ResponderEliminar
this design is so interesting!ResponderEliminar
I just wish I had an access to Kikos- the colour is georgeous.
I could send you some if you want :) That's absolutely not a problem! Let me know!Eliminar
Great mani! The black looks like smoke rising up... a very cool effect! :-)ResponderEliminar
I agree! It looked like smoke to me too :D Thank you Yun!Eliminar
Yay, a Kiko polish!!!! :)ResponderEliminar
I really like your manicure, I agree with Jenny Lee, it seems you drew aquatic plants on your nails.
What a gorgeous color! And I really dig the effect of the needle marble on the tips...lovely!ResponderEliminar
Gracias, Natalie :)Eliminar
I just read a post by Yun, and that is the first thought that came to mind when I saw the photos...looks like wisps or tendrils of smoke. Very cool!ResponderEliminar
:) smoke it is then! Thanks!Eliminar
First - this is in no way a fail. I thin it's pretty, fun, creative and very well made! Besides, the color is awesome!ResponderEliminar
Second - why are you in Barcelona if the presentation is in Madrid??? :-(
Thank you! ^^Eliminar

I bet Kiko is the brand I own most of, too! And Kiko 383 is one of my favourites!ResponderEliminar
^^ I can understand why!Eliminar
Damn you, I love it.ResponderEliminar
Haha! Thanks Milex!Eliminar
Not a fail! No way, no how. It's stunning.ResponderEliminar
Of course, we're looking at what IS. Most likely, you're looking at an unintended end result.
Never confess such things (LOLOLOL), because from everyone else's perspective, it's freaking perfect!!!!
I envy you your beautiful Kikos. Please keep posting 'em!
^^ Thank you Lisa! I will take your advice, after this feedback it's obvious I don't see what you all see ;)Eliminar
I have to agree with some of the ladies above, the black kinda looks like smoke. Very cool effect and I really like the blue color :)ResponderEliminar
Thank you Ria :)Eliminar
Not a fail! I really like this look and the blue polish is such a great color.ResponderEliminar
I love the color and the nail art!! I wish this week was easy for me lol. Hopefully next week will :)ResponderEliminar

I haven't had the pleasure of trying Kiko polishes, I don;t know if I can get them here. I really think this is a beautiful color! Love the mani! Don't let work stress you too much!ResponderEliminar
