Fingers crossed for Abby!

Morning lovelies :) Just a quick fosterupdate: Abby is gonna get visitors on Tuesday already, that went so fast! I so hope it's a match and she'll finds her forever home that day! I'll post a bigger update on my fosterblog sometime soon and keep it shorter here, but she's doing absolutely fantastic. She's making little bits of progress every day, dares to show more and more of herself (and less of the snappy behaviour she showed, especially to my cats), and she's also learning that I'm not a scary thing when walking around. In fact, this morning she was sitting on the stairs and I ended up stepping over her because she wouldn't move, haha! She's really a little adult already, still has some kittenmoments but also packs plenty of character and a will of her own. Picking her up goes so much better already, and she absolutely loves to cuddle :)

I don't have as much pictures of her as I'd like, because she's a bit impressed by the camera at times, and other times she just can't sit still! She's often too busy with playing or cuddling with me :D


See, a lot of pictures end up like this! ^^


She's a pretty little lady :)


I hope for her sake that this is the last you'll be seeing of her here, but I'd miss her for sure! It's so special to see a foster improve ♥ And speaking of special, do you remember Mobi, the kitten with the amputated leg? Here's one of the posts where I showed him. I received a big update on him, he's doing awesome and looks like that too! It's really heartwarming to see how one of those tiny kittens grew up to become a healthy & happy cat with a bright future ahead of him, together with his feline friends and their wonderful home! I'm glad I could be a part of his start in life :)

I'll start swatching a bunch of Dance Legends again this week, and there's some BPS plates still waiting for review as well, so you'll see me again soon :) Have a lovely Sunday!

Something different with BPS triangle glitter

Howdy! No tone-on-tone, no subtle stamping, nothing like that... bright&bold is what I'm showing today! I started with a grey base, used tape and an orange polish to cover half the nail, and then I applied the black triangle glitters. It worked best for me to start at the tips and work my way up with them. I finished with 2 layers of top coat, but as you can tell, these glitters weren't 100% flat and are a little bit on the thick side. And my nails are a bit more rounded at the top than the sides of my nails, which makes the sides of the glitters slightly stand up from the nail. So even with those 2 layers, the result isn't as smooth as I'd like! Maybe I should apply top coat and just stick them in the wet top coat next time, and not add more on top. That usually works fine with glitters :)

My camera picked up the orange better but showed the grey too light. But I took a pic with my phone to show this mani to my boyfriend, and as it turned out, my phone captured the grey well, but the orange too dark :P Instead of messing around more with my camera to get the right settings, I figured to just show both pics :) I do like the look of this mani, but I know myself well enough, glitters that stick out won't last long (can you resist picking them off?) and when a mani looks a bit thick because of the amount of layers, meh. Sooo, if I'd wear this kinda combo again, I think I'd be back to stamping, haha!

The triangle shaped glitters come in little jar like a lot of BPS glitters, and just like most of their glitters, they come in a bunch of colors as well. It felt like some glitters were thicker than others, but as I quickly found out, that was because there were several still sticking together. Rubbing them between my fingers sorted that easily! You can find the glitters here, a little jar costs $2.53, and you'll get 10% off with code ABJ61.

Hope you'll have a lovely weekend, take care!

Simple sponged & decal mani

Hey all :) I'm far behind on my BornPrettyStore reviews, time to catch up, starting with some palmtree decals! Or well, I only used leaves for this mani, but most of the decals on the sheet are palmtrees. These waterdecals are available in 2 colors, black and red/pink, and I chose the black ones. I started with a light purple base and randomly sponged 2 other purples on top, then I applied the waterdecals and finished with top coat. Here's how that turned out:

And here's how this sheet of decals looks! Aren't these trees perfect for a summery mani? You can find them here, a sheet costs $2.02 and as always, using code ABJ61 will give 10% off on your BPS order :) Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
