Limited Edition “ZENSIBILITY” by CATRICE

Zen time. Living consciously. Concentrating on what really matters. Zen is the indispensible counterpart to today’s otherwise fast-moving world and meets upon a desire for peace and harmony in everyday life. This attitude to life is also reflected in the fashion of the coming season, which includes collections with an origami appeal. Purist elegance, colours that emanate calm and strength, flowing kimono cuts and softly falling fabrics with floral prints determine the design.

Hallo beauties,

Jip, i'm back with another nail art manicure and it's the first one for me this year - i think it's a bit overdue!

So for those that doesn't know i'm a member of this group on Facebook and we all have the same theme it's just that we have our own style or technique.  For today's manicure my style are dots.

I've decided to use the following nail polish colours:

• essence: the gel base coat
• essence the gel wild wet ways [colour intensifier base]
• essence the gel black is back
• Just be gorgeous Aqua Attitude
• Tip Top Matt-nificent

I always use essence the gel base coat, since they are really great and the drying time are great, thus i don't have to wait so long before i can paint my nails. Without further ado here are my manicure for todays prompt.
