Three shades of green with Misa Toxic Seduction

By // No comments:
Green and teal are my favorite nail polish colors and I have a drawer full of these, so this weeks challenge should have been a piece of cake. It wasn't.
I couldn't decide on the colors and I couldn't decide on the nail art I wanted to attempt. In the end I'm not satisfied with the endresult. I do like the stripes, but the colors just don't work well together.

Products used:
Dark green shimmer: Misa "Toxic seduction"
Metallic green: Anny "Hello Hollywood"
Grass green foil: Zoya "Ivanka"
Striping tape


I really like each of these polishes seperately, in fact I wore Anny "Hello Hollywood" this weekend on her own (but couldn't take pictures, sorry).


On the first picture you see the mani mattefied, on the picture above you see the mani glossy. I prefer this one mattefied, it makes the stripes stand out more.

And this is Misa 'Toxic Seduction" on her own, this is an oldie but goodie! Look at that glowy subtle shimmer and the classy dark green color with the slightest hint of blue in it, perfect dark green polish.
Also this has the classic Misa perfect formula: could be a onecoater if you like to use a thicker coat. I always prefer two thin coats.

If you like to see the other "3 shades of green" manicures of bloggers way more creative than I am, check the links below:

Hema Matt 823

By // No comments:
My absolute favorite Dutch warehouse Hema also sells my favorite affordable make-up. Hema nail polish almost always has great coverage, pigmentation and weartime. They usually have lovely small seasonal collections of face make-up and nailpolish, one of the collections that is now available is called Dramatic Rock and this matte purple is one of the nailpolishes from this collections.

It certainly is a matte polish, but it's not chalky matt, more like a satin finish. I prefer the satin finish over the matte beacause of the softer look, so I'm really happy with this one! 
Two creamy coats were enough to get a perfect manicure. 

A few weeks ago I also did a little nailart with this polish. If you haven't seen that post, this is what I did: matte purple with shiney metallic silver stripes.
I absolutely love this polish, so if you are in Holland, check out your local Hema for this one!

Thank you so much for watching!

OPI 'Amazon...Amazoff' with added holo goodness.

By // No comments:
This is what I wore last weekend. I like to use the 52 week challenge as inspiration for my manicures and this weeks prompt was 'Holo' (of 'Film', but that sounded like way too much work). The challenge helps me to come up with something a little bit more creative and step out of my comfortzone.

I started with painting al my nails with the green OPI 'Amazon...Amazoff'. I really love this polish!. The intention was to stamp with a silver holo over the green, but I failed miserably at the stamping so I removed the green from two fingers and just painted them with silver holo and added a design with 'Amazon...Amazoff' over the silver holo. On the green nails I placed small round holographic glitters to add a little more holo.

Products used:
- Green: OPI 'Amazon...Amazoff' 
   This is almost a onecoater, a dream to apply, it has an almost invisible shimmer that gives a soft          glow to the polish. Only bad thing: she stains like a b*tch, but I love her anyway.
- Silver holo: Nfu Oh 61
- Silver glitter
- Nailstencil by smART Nails


Thank you very much for watching.
I'm off to bed now with my BFF called Netflix.
I'm watching season 3 of The Killing, the name is appropriate: the suspense and drama is killing me!!!!

While I'm watching netflix, you can watch the other girls who did something holo today:

What I wore for Christmas

By // No comments:
It's been 2 weeks since Christmas, maybe a bit too late to post these, but I liked them so much!


Products used:
Black: Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro "Black Satin"
Shredded glitter: OPI "Gaining Mole-mentum"
Snowflake-like design: Konad M69
Christmastree: smART Nails stencil


This picture is taken with flash, I have the worst camera EVER and this was the only way I could show you how amazing 'Gaining Mole-mentum' is. Tit's a shredded glitter is gold and rosegold. So unique! I loved it from the first stroke! You have to do a little bit of glitterplacement, but not much.

This is a bitch to remove by the way, foil method does not work on this one, so even after the foil method, you are scrubbing like crazy to get them off,


And a picture with my sparkly tights on the background. I wanted my nails to be festive and christmassy, but not with too much color, this worked out really well in my opinion.

This was my full outfit: black and emerald dress, sparkly tights, dark grey boots (because I really didn't want to wear my black pumps, they hurt my feet). Hair pulled back with a few loose curls.

I hope you all started your new year well and I hope your year will get better and better and better.


Thank you so much for watching.
Lots of love,

Inge (PolishSis)

Orly - 'Saturated' with neon dots.

By // No comments:
So how are you liking the new look here on my blog? Doesn't it look clean and fresh? No more clutter, the colors are lighter, new template...it is still a work in progress ofcourse, but I'm already liking this fresh new start of 2015.


I'm also picking up on the 52 week challenge from The Crumpet with my 'Dotting tools' manicure, 'Dotting tools' being one of the possible challenges this week.
You could also choose 'pink and aqua' for this week, but that combination of colors sounds like Barbies dreamhouse to me (and I really dislike that girl).


That gorgeous deep dark neon purple is Orly 'Saturated', I love love love this color. Unfortunately, my camera does not love this color, but I managed to get a somewhat accurate picture of the color anyway.

Application: 2 / 3 coats, depending on how thick you paint your layers. I did 3 thin coats, because with 2 thin coats I had some nails that weren't completely opaque.
The polish dries a bit matte, but not matte enough, so a topcoat (matte or glossy) is recommended!

I used the dotting tool to make three white dots on each nail, and after that I dotted neon polish over the white dots.

If you like to see how other girls are swinging their dotting tools this week, check the links below:

Happy New Year everybody!
So my New Years resolution is to improve my blog, I've been blogging for 5 years and the old format is just...well.. OLD.
Out with the old, in with the new!

I'm starting with the visual improvements and downloaded a new template, but I'm a total n00b, so it might get weird around here sometimes ;-)
Be patient with me, it will get better, I promise (I just have to figure out how!)

Merry Christmas from Polishsis

Everybody have a wonderful Christmas with your friends, family, loved ones, dogs, cats, Netflix, bottle of wine, whatever is your perfect Christmas!

We are celebrating this Christmas with family. First day of Christmas we have a fancy catered dinner at his family and on the second day of Christmas we will have a homecooked dinner with my family.


At this moment, Christmas Eve I'm doing my nails in my joggingpants, nothing fancy yet. 
My love did prepare a wonderful dinner with pork roast, hot cinnamon apples with cranberries and baked potatoes, mjum!!!


For these nails I used smART Nails nailstencils to add the designs. You can read all about these in my previous posts.


Although I really liked this manicure, I am still doing a new manicure for Christmas. I wanted something a little more classy to match my outfit, So now I'm doing something black and gold..or silver, it's not finished yet :-)


I love the pinky nail best, with the silver ribbon over the red stripes. My pinkynails looks giftwrapped!

Thank you all for watching!
Enjoy your Holidays :-)

Lots of love, Inge (PolishSis)

Matte purple + metallic nails with smART Nails - Day 7

By // No comments:
This is the last day of my smART Nais Week! Less than one hour left to enter the giveaway!

I saved one of my favorite manicures of this week for this last day: matte purple with metallic silver stripes

Ok, the people of smART Nails are not going to be happy with my next tip, but you can use one stencil several times. Why waste a perfectly good product??? The stencil sticks really well to your nails and if you make sure the polish you used is completely dry on the stencil, you can use it again easily, it keeps giving you a sharp design a second time around. And maybe a third also, but I can only say I used each stencil twice and that worked great for me.


 I'm seriously considering this my Chrismas manicure, it's classy with a touch of bling.
Or I could go really over the top with the bling ofcourse and forget about the classy...not sure yet, but this mani is in theory a perfect Christmas manicure.


It's as easy as the picture above: paint your nails, wait for them to dry, put on the stencil and add the second polish over it.

Magnet design from smART Nails + Giveaway -Part 6

By // No comments:
This design from smART Nails is called "magnet", I don't know why it's called like that, but it does look amazing! I wanted to do something fun with this design and then I found this picture by Liana's Nails and I knew these were the colors I wanted to use.

I really love how this turned out, not as nice as the mani I was inspired by, but the colors work really well together!

I'm really tired, so I'm keeping it short today, here is another picture of this mani, this one is taken without sunlight (pictures above are taken in the sunlight):
