[Guest Post] Bridget from LuxeBeautyForever

I am so excited and honored to be able to do a guest post on Sabine's blog! I've been following 'My Polish Stash' for several years now and have always been inspired by Sabine's manicures (and lets face it her nails are to die for!).

Today, I have a fun manicure featuring 2 coats of Liquid Sky Lacquer 'Shanel's Cyan' and 'Sugared Berries'. I kept in mind that Sabine's blog is based out of Germany so I wanted to make sure I featured polishes that were available internationally! You can purchase these polishes at Mei Mei's Signatures (based out of Singapore) and they will be available soon from Rainbow Connection (based out of the UK).

[Guest Post] Anna's Peanutbutter & Jelly Pies

Hello everyone!

My name is Anna. Some of you might know me as @Yoosie2808 from Twitter or yoosie2808 from Instagram. I am 29 years old and one of “those Beauty-Girls”… ;)

I have been knowing Sabine since 2011 by a mutual friend and when she asked for some guest bloggers while she is on vacation, I was like “Hell yeah!”…
First I wanted to do some Halloween nailart, but I had to shorten my nails so much that every nailart would just not turn out the way I like it. So I decided to bring some Yumminess to this blog.
Both, Sabine and I have a faible for American food and so I decided to try some PB&J Mini Tartes (PeanutButter & Jelly).

[Guest Post] Karine from Nailderella

Hi everyone,

Karine from Nailderella writing on My Polish Stash! I was so honored when Sabine asked me to write a guest post for her, while she is away on holidays. By the way, I hope Sabine is having great holidays! I love reading Sabine's blog because her nails are so beautiful and she always does pretty nail art and uses great polishes! Yep, she's the kind of girls that makes you want everthing she's wearing!!

For today's post I did a mix 'n' match manicure! In fact, I saw Penélope Luz doing this kind of nail art and loved it so much that I took inspiration from her! You can read her blog post HERE.

So here it is! I hope you'll like it ;D

[Guest Post] Kellytattoo

Hello fellow nail polish enthusiasts! 

I was so excited when the lovely and talented Sabine asked me to do a guest blog spot for her, I couldn't be happier to oblige! I thought long and hard on what nail polish I wanted to feature and I finally decided on OPI "Get Your Number". This is a beautiful glitter filled blue polish from their Mariah Carey collection. I'm not sure why this lovely lacquer sat in my untried stash for so long but what a mistake that was because I couldn't love it more! If you haven't tried any of the liquid sand polishes by OPI you are truly missing out. I'm not usually a big fan of texture polishes but these gritty finish polishes are very easy to work with, durable and very striking. I will show you pictures of a manicure using the polish without top coat and then pictures with top coat. I hope you like it as much as I do!

[Guest Post] Deborah from Love. Varnish, Chocolate and More

Hi loves!
My name is Deborah and I am one of 2 people writing for Love. Varnish, chocolate and more... It is an honor for me to be writing here today on My Polish Stash. I've been following Sabine's blog for quite some time now and I just love her pretty long nails and gorgeous pictures!

I prepared a nice tape manicure for today featuring a shade I hadn't used before: Bondi Uptown Girl. This was 1 of the polishes I received in my August subscription box and I must admit: I wasn't as excited for this one as I was for some others. I don't wear lilacs too often and shades like these sometimes make your hands look all red, too.

[Guest Post] Marisa from Polish Obsession

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

I'm so happy to be able to share a guest post on Sabine's blog!  I always love seeing her beautiful nails and it's an honor to share with you all.

I wanted to do something simple, yet unique.  Here's what I came up with.

I started off with a base of Revlon Gray Suede.  I then used a makeup sponge to create a gradient with Nails Inc Power Pink. Finally, I used my dotting tool to add dots of Gray Suede and Power Pink. I topped off this mani with Seche Vite.

I love the subtle shimmer from Gray Suede and these colors go really well together.  It's a fun mani without being too in your face.

What do you guys think of this mani?  Have you ever done gradients and dots?

Thanks for having me Sabine!

I really like this delicate and classy manicure Marisa. Thank you so much for creating this design for me! For more of her pretty nails, head over to her blog Polish Obsession!

[Guest Post] Bregje from Oooh, Shinies!

Hi everyone,

today lovely Bregje from Oooh, Shinies! with her amazing stamping skills is helping me out. Please give her a warm welcome and enjoy her post :)

Hi all!
Let me start this guest post by saying thank you to Sabine for having me on her lovely blog, it's great to be here! :) When Sabine asked me, I said yes straight away (or well, I did so in my head but actually forgot to mail her back, oops >.<) but then I started to wonder what to make for My Polish Stash. I had some nailart tries which didn't turn out exactly as I'd like, and then I decided to just stick with what always works well for me, a subtle stamped mani. And because I didn't use Tongue & Chic for stamping yet, the choice for a stamping polish was easy. Just like several other polishes from the China Glaze Autumn Nights collection, this thing stamps great! And it has exactly what I love in a stamping polish, depending on the basecolor it can look subtle, but it comes to life when the light hits it <3

I hope you enjoyed my post here, thanks again Sabine and I hope you're having a wonderful holiday right now! :)

Thank you Bregje for another wonderful stamping design! I cannot wait for all the Fall collections to come out and your swatch of Tongue & Chic really made me curious :)

[Guest Post] Danny from Polish Chest

Hi gals,

I’m Danny from Polish Chest. I’m from Germany - just like Sabine. And I had the pleasure of meeting her in real life a few times. So I’m super happy I can guest post on her amazing blog.

I was thinking a lot about what kind of manicure I can show you. And because I’m a fan of super simple things when it comes to manicures and nail designs, I thought I should give a half moon manicure a try. Now this is my first attempt at such a manicure. And I hope you’ll like it.

The colors I’ve used are China Glaze For Audrey - a cult classic - and butterLONDON Shag - the prettiest bronze I’ve seen so far.
I can’t wait to read your comments and see if you liked my holiday replacement for Sabine.

And Sabine, thank you so much for having me! I hope you can enjoy your holidays overseas and buy a lot of new polishes!

Thank you so much for this great manicure Danny! I always love how neat your tape designs come out and I am really digging this unusual color combination. And even though I am not spending my holidays overseas this time (I do wish I was though), I will surely come back with a few nice nail polishes from Spain ;)

[Guest Post] Jen from The Nail Polish Project

Good evening everyone,

please welcome Jen from The Nail Polish Project as the very first guest blogger on My Polish Stash. I was so honored when she agreed to do a manicure for my blog. Jen was my very first nail crush when I first started out collecting nail polish and I've adored her nails and manicures ever since.

When the lovely Sabine from My Polish Stash recently invited me to write a guest post for her while she was on holiday and taking a break, I jumped at the opportunity. Sabine and I started blogging around the same time and I absolutely love her blog. Her nails are very similar to mine and we have similar tastes too... I can't count how many times I've seen her post a polish I've just bought or was on the verge of buying!
I wanted to do something special for my guest post so I rolled out my stamping plates....only to stare at them for half an hour without a single idea!  Finally I decided to do a manicure inspired by our countries....nope still nothing came to me.  Ok. what about polishes inspired by our coutries....yes! I can do that.  And this is what I ended up with.

Hi everyone!

Image Source

I just wanted to quickly let you know that My Polish Stash is taking a break through September. I haven't been on a proper holiday for two years now and I really need some time off from work and everyday life. I am going to the South of Spain for a while, Andalusia to be exact. I cannot wait to be near the sea again and enjoy the (hopefully) sunny weather.
Thus, I won't be posting new manicures this month. Instead, I asked some fellow nail polish enthusiasts to help me out with some guest posts. Please give them all a warm welcome and I am sure you will enjoy their manicures as much as I do! I will be back at the end of the month with some new inspiration. 

Wishing you all a great September and see you soon!
