Mint / Beige Leopard Nails

Hi lovelings! I didn't plan on blogging about this mint and beige leopard nail design, but hey, why not? Just a few words today :) This is Butter London's Cuppa for the base, and Fiver for spots, and Essie's Licorice to outline them. I did everything without nail art tools, just the nail polish brushes. My black Essie has the old slim brush though, so you might need to use a small nail art brush or a toothpick instead, if your black polish has a quite wide one. Good luck if you'd like like to recreate this look! You can show me if you tag me on Instagram @nailescapades :)

Stay classy ;)

Foxy Paws - One More Night

Hello lovelies! Today I'm here to show you the magnificent indie nail polish One More Night by Foxy Paws. It's a beautiful duochrome lacquer shifting from blue to purple. It has that little dash of holographic glitter which makes your nails look like a starry night. If you've ever struggled with doing galaxy nails, then no need to worry anymore - it would be very appropriate if people started to call this nail polish the galaxy in a bottle. I absolutely adore it - it's my favorite Foxy Paws polish, and I want to wear it every single day! I'm good to go with 2 generous coats, remembering of course base coat + top coat :)

Okay, it's perhaps one of my all time favorite nail polishes. Oooh!? I know ;) The application is as easy as with any other quality polish, the wear is long and the wow factor is definitely present! Once more I need to state that these handmade lacquers by Foxy Paws and WellNails are 4-free and cruelty free :)

One More Night by Foxy Paws is available at :) Stay tuned for news and cool updates from Foxy Paws at If you'd like know more about WellNails, then go to their facebook page at :)

WellNails - Blue French Horn

Hi again my lovely readers! Today on the blog I'm featuring this beautiful lacquer, again from the brilliant indie nail polish brand WellNails, founded by the genius Charlotte, who's also behind the indie brand Foxy Paws. The original name of this polish is Sort of Looks like a Smurf Penis, but it has an alternate name for the shy ones out there, which is Blue French Horn :) It's a true royal blue jelly with beautiful holographic glitter in varying shades of blue. The glitter comes in 4 different sizes, and distributes easily and evenly on your nails throughout the application. I used 3 regular coats of polish, so yeah, this time I was really in the mood for glitter! As I always say, use your base coat and top coat, ladies and gents - those are not optional, haha!<3 At least if you want to protect your natural nails and increase the longevity of all of your beautiful manicures. Trivia, thoughts and buying info after the photos.

Cheesy-cheesyness alert! FYI (for your info) in this last photo, I used a light-enhancing filter, to show my kind of aesthetic expression and interpretation of the lacquer. The depth and beauty simply does not show with my iPhone-camera being my source of picture taking. So to do it justice I had to do this :) Oh self-irony, where have you been? It strikes again! ;)

Is it clear by now, that I'm into the tv-series How I met your mother? And is it clear that I love these nail polishes inspired by it? If you're a jelly fan in general, then I highly recommend you try this. Also if you're not though :) I actually had four people asking me what polish I was wearing - one said "Is it a new Chanel?". I'm not lying girls and boys, it really happened. Obviously I was so sad when I had to remove it, but happy again to try out my favorite polish of the five I received from lovely Ms. Charlotte :) It's a Foxy Paws polish, and I wont reveal to you yet which one, mwahaha. But If you follow me on Instagram, you'll be the first to know! My account is of course @nailescapades :) So check in frequently PLUS I'm soon having a follower appreciation giveaway!<3

Anyway! Here's a screenshot from the original Blue French Horn scene:
