Mandala Nail Art with CF Beauty Cosmetics - Swatch & Review

I got to know CF Beauty Cosmetics last month, when Cláudia, the brand's creator, contacted me to swatch and review some of the 2015 Spring/Summer edition polishes.

I specially liked that the polishes were 4-Free and the brush size was awesome for a mini.

Cláudia was kind enough to send me the rest of the shades in the collection (it feels great to see your work appreciated - thank you, Cláudia) and I'll be swatching them throughout this week, with matching nail art, so stay tuned ;)

I'm starting the week with CF Beauty Cosmetics Nº7 Golden Sands:

CF Cosmetics Nº7 Golden Sands

Golden Sands is a lovely pearly/shimmery polish. 
If it weren't for such a finish, it could easily pass off as a nude shade. 
It's quite on the sheer side for me, so I applied three coats so I wouldn't have a nail line showing.
You can, however, wear it lightly on your nails, if you want nothing but a slight shine to them.
There were hardly any brush strokes visibly, but I do advise using a top coat in the end for maximum shine.

Mandala Nails

The nail art was inspired by both the polishe's name and what I've been doing lately in my spare time.

Let me know if you're hooked in something similar in the comments below.

Mandala Nails

I freehanded the mandalas and used acrylic paint for each design - I specially like how I didn't go with black for the outlines, 'cause the green looks and feel so much better :)

Let me know down in the comments if this is your sort of shade and finish for your favourite nail polish, and, of course, tell me if you're into colourful mandala designs.

  1. That shade is gorgeous and so is your nail art! I always hear about adult coloring books but I've never tried it myself.. It must be a very relaxing hobby!

  2. I didn't know they made colouring books for adults until recently, but then a Bored Panda post about "Doodle Invasion: Zifflin's Coloring Book" sent me down a wonderful Amazon colouring-book spiral.

    I loved: Balance (Angie's Extreme Stress Menders Volume 1), Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book, Flower Designs by Janean Morrison and Creative Haven Mehndi Designs. Hopefully I'll get my hands on some of them :D .

  3. Beautiful! I love mandalas so much :) And I'm also into coloring books! They're great for letting go of your troubles and worries. I just recently bought a few more!

  4. This is so pretty, your freehand is excellent! I love colouring books, I've got lots of them! I also love drawing my own mandalas :)

  5. The freehand nail art is STUNNING and I love the divine nude shade.

  6. Woah these are so amazing! Your freehand skills are impressive Mina!

  7. I've never heard of this brand before, it's always good to learn about new ones :) the nail art is really great, I love the brights paired with the neutral base!

  8. What a lovely design on such a nice shade of polish!

  9. Thank you, John - it's great when you find a nice polish to inspire you :)

  10. It's a recently launched Portuguese brand, which may explain why it's new to you :)
    Glad you liked it, hun! Thank you! **

  11. Aww, thanks, luv! <3

  12. Sweetie, you're too kind! Thank you!! And, yes, I can see myself reaching for this shade often ;)

  13. Thank you so much, dear! And colouring totally rocks :D

  14. Exactly my feeling, hun! I got a hold of a new one, but I'm trying to keep it hidden until I finish the first one ;)

  15. Thanks, dear :D

  16. Thank you! And yes it's very relaxing! And fun and inspiring, too :D

  17. hahaha -you're just like me! The minute I heard about these, I had to search for all those available ;)
    Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book is one of my and sister's favourites as well :D
