Úsalo Ya - No.4

Everyone knows the big dilemma being getting a good white polish, don't we, ladies? ;)

If you've seen my last couple blogs you know my beloved and trusting OPI Alpine Snow is now a goner.
Naturally I had to replace it (OPI tends to be somewhat expensive *cof cof*), so I went with a brand I've been loving a lotlately: BellaOggi.





And it happened to coincide with today's Úsalo Ya! :D
It couldn't have been better - check it out:







Pretty or what? :)
I'd love to be able to say it's a one coater, but am afaid it is not - nevertheless it does apply smoothly and a second coat will be enough for an even finished look.
That's the same deal OPI and my nails had,  so I'm more than happy with this baby <3




In case you'd like to give it a go, too, it's BellaOggi No.7, also known as Snow White.



As for the nail art, I'd seen this mani a couple days ago, from Art X Nail, and wanted to give it a try, with a couple twists to it.
Here's what came out of it ;)




You knew I wouldn't be able to leave my lil' aliens pure black and white, as the original, right? 
;)



And instead of aztec like nails to match, I did their flying saucer instead - hahahaha :D




All the designs were done with acrylics.
I left but one nail with a black and hite feeling, as to honor the original and then used pink, blue and yellow acrylic paints for the rest of the lil' crew ;)



Hope you liked this one - let me know in the comment section below - and check everyone else's look for today's Úsalo Ya! :D


Hugs & Kissies,

  4. That looks like a perfect white polish! But since you have pretty long nails, do you think it could be a one coater for shorter nails? Or was it slightly sheer?

    1. Actually, you might be right - on short nails, this baby would look awesome in just one coat (it's not sheer at all!)
      My pinkie, for instance, didn't need a second coat at all ;)

  7. Oh my :) These little aliens are adorable :) I am loving your thumb the MOST!!! You put so much work into it and it paid off <3 Love, love, love! And the white nail polish is gorgeous!! I am also in a search of a good white polish. It's harder to find it than people would think! I heard good things about Sally Hansen, so I might give it a go :)

    1. I knooooowwwww! That spaceship took all my patience but I think it was worth it indeed! :D
      And definitely try a Sally Hansen at least once - great coverage & fast drying process (I just can't assess durability because well... we all know polish doesn't last long on my nails ;))
