Mara’s Birthday nail art month – DAY 6

Mara's Birthday nail art month


Good evening lovelies,

we are already at day 6 of my Birthday nail art month and today I have a nail design I saw more or less everywhere over the internet.
It is basically a cute little Super Mario Brothers nail design. There are different ones, using different characters.

Here are few of them

Since I am not THAT good with nail arts, I decided to go for a simple french toad design

Here is what I used

  • O.P.I. – Alpine Snow
  • O.P.I. – bubble bath
  • Wet n Wild – megalast – E2143 I red a book
  • Ciaté – PP065 big yellow taxi
  • a black polish for the eyes






I think I don’t have to explain too much^^

On the pinky, the middle and pointy finger I did a white tip at first, using O.P.I.’s – Alpine Snow. After that was dry I used Wet n Wild’s – I red a book and a thin nail brush to create the thin red line under the white tip. on the ring finger I started with the red head of toad and used a nail correcting pen to get a clean edge. I let it dry and used Alpine Snow to paint the dots on his head and painted a base for his face. After that was dry I painted over the white with Bubble Bath, let it dry and painted his eyes on^^

Last but not least I also applied two coats of Alpine Snow on my thumb, let it dry and created the star.

That is all. I felt it was a pretty easy nail design. You can also use different colors for example green for the 1up mushroom or also blue.
You could also do a different one on each nail^^

What do you think?

I really love Mario. I used to play it a lot when I was together with my cousin and I do play it a lot with my BF.

What about you? Do you like Super Mario Brothers?

Have a great night



HAULy friday – twenty – TKmaxx – discounted brand polishes

Hey lovelies,

you have no idea how excited I was to go to TKmaxx.
I have never been there before, but I heard that they sell brand polishes ridiculously cheap.On instagram I saw the sell 4 Sally Hansen Salon Manicure polishes for only 10 euro! I HAD TO CHECK IT !

So on Monday I actually went to two of the TKmaxx stores we have here in Berlin.
Sadly I was not lucky enough too get the 4 set deal because I went after work they were sold out. I did find a lot of other great polishes though, which I want to show you today.
