Sparkly Carnaval manicure

Hey everyone!
Here in the south of the Netherlands the Carnaval holiday is in full swing. Sadly I can not attend, as I am ill at the moment :( my throat feels I like I swallowed some sandpaper and I have lost my voice, so I am staying at home, drinking tea with honey under a warm blanket.

I did however make a Carnaval manicure, and even though I can't wear it outside now, I can show it to you guys :)

For this manicure I used Essence Lilac is my style which Deborah showed you a while ago. I loved it so much in her pictures that I very much regretted not picking it up when I had the chance. But luckily sweet Deborah was still able to find me one! So here it is, paired with Nubar Petunia sparkle as a glitter gradient.

I really love the sparkle, it's making my sick day a little brighter :) I hope you guys like it too and see you next week!


  1. Pretty! These colors look like they were meant for each other!

  2. This is so pretty! I love purple polishes!

  3. Funny you should say that! I have my stash arranged by colour and did a double take when I put the essence in next to the nubar, it was really weird!

  4. So beautiful! I too am in the midst of a cold. You have inspired me to paint my nails something perky and pretty!

  5. Looking at something nice always makes me feel a little bit better, it sounds funny but it's true! I hope you get well soon!

  6. This combo is amazing! Nubar Sparkles are really worth the struggle you have while removing them :D It fits perfectly this Essence as a base.... <3
