China Glaze Octa Gone Wild


Todays polish is just totally awesome. It really is gorgeous! Unfortunately I did not capture the holo very well, but trust me, this is crazy holo.

Application and opacity are good. 2 coats is enough.

Have a great day! Thanks for looking!

Orly Luxe


I don't know why, but I was sooo in the mood for gold. And what is the best gold nail polish ever? Right, Orly Luxe. Nice soft gold foil which is also easy to apply. What else can you wish for in a gold polish?

And that's why I'm going to keep my mouth shut now, the polish and pics speak for themselves.

Thanks for watching!

China Glaze Branding Iron


So I wrote a complete post, actually quite a long one. And guess what happened? Blogger app on my phone freaked out. And since I still haven't had time to fix mtv laptop, my phone is all I have. Well, I had to delete the app and download it all over. Of course that doesn't take a lit of time, but my post was gone.

Well, I'm showing you a very pretty deep dark vampy red, which I (as a non-red lover) actually really liked. And good to go in just one thick coat. Great application too!! Love it!
Pics aren't awesome, so I will have to show you this again, but I'm sure you don't mind.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

OPI Holiday Glow

Ok, ok, ok, I know, it's not even close to holiday season. But hey, I was in the mood for brown. And Holiday Glow is a gorgeous chocolate brown with silver glitter. Why wait until december?

Although I really really really like this color, application was bad! Especiallt opacity. Well, in the end it turnef out great, but after the first coat I was sure I wasn't going to finish this manicure and would take it all off again. But I'm happy I did not do that, it turned out to be exactly what I wanted :-)

Have I great and thanks for stopping by!

Lippmann Across The Universe


Well, you've probably all seen the world famous Across The Universe a million times already, but I'm showing it to you anyway. It's just so awesome!

When I swatched it I found out it really is sheer, so for this manicure I first used a layer of China Glaze Little Drummer Boy, which turned out to be a perfect combination.

What can I say, I love it! The ink blue base with silver, blue and green glitter in different kind of shapes. Great!

Thanks for visiting my blog! I promise to make more pics next time.

Finger Paints Holly Good Times


Today I've got a Finger Paints polish for you from the last holiday collection. It's called Holly Good Times. I really really really like it!! It's a red and gold glitter in a clear base and quite opaque, only 2 coats needed.

After a day of wear I wanted to spice it up and used China Glaze Polar Ice on top. And I have to say it's a combination which is really festive. And you can still see the gold and red glitter through it. Unfortunately I didn't make any pics of it. Very stupid...

Well, just enjoy the look of this gorgeous holiday glitter in June, haha.

Thanks for stopping by!

Savina Black Pearl


Today I've got a Savina polish for you. It's my first and only one. Probably because you hardly ever see swatches of this brand.

Black Pearl is a nice duochrome that flashes teal, blue and purple mostly. It is hard to capture the duochrome though. Application was actually quite good! And the wear was fine too. I was lazy when I applied this and didn't even use a topcoat and still it lasted for 2 days.
And it is pretty opaque too. 2 coats were enough.

I must admit that I was blown away by how it looked in the bottle and was a bit disappointed that it didn't translate on the nail. It still is awesome though!!

Have a great day!!

Golden Rose flakies 02

Hi ladies!

You have probably all heard before of the Golden Rose flakies. Well, you've probably also heard that when applied over black there are only 2 colors, red/yellow/orange/green (like SH Hidden Treasure) and blue/green (like Nfu Oh 39). But that's not completely true. I have another Golden Rose flakie polish which only shifts orange/green/yellow, so not a standard one with red.
And the one I'm showing you today is totally amazing!! It shifts yellow, orange, red, pink, green, purple and blue. OMG this is the queen of all flakies! So stunning! A true must have for any flakies lover.

I applied 1 coat of flakies over 1 coat of a black Color Club without label.

Enjoy the pics and thanks for watching!

Zoya Edyta

Hi there!!

Let me start by apologizing for not giving you nice and sunny pics. But there just wasn't any sun when I used this beautiful polish.

Zoya Edyta is some sort of army green color with gold shimmer. WOW! I never expected I would like it this much. Although I must admit that I have been loving almost all the colors with gold shimmer Zoya put on the market in the past year.

Application on Zoya is always great and the drying time wasn't too bad either.

Enjoy your day!!

Comparison Color Club Magic Attraction and Hocus Pocus

Hello ladies!

Ever since I saw Hocus Pocus by Color Club I really needed to have it, because I thought it was even prettier than Magic Attraction which I already owned and loved. Someone on a forum also told me it was different. Well, I now own both and either I'm blind or it really is the same color.
I don't even remember on which finger I used either one of them.

I do still love both though! Hocus Pocus could be nice to bring on holiday because it's a baby bottle, so I'll keep both.

In these pics I used 2 coats. These two could never become opaque, but I still love the look of it. Drying time was amazingly fast by the way. I love that too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Finger Paints Icy Iris

Goodmorning ladies!

Today I'm showing you a very gorgeous purple polish. I wanted this for quite some time now and Cat got it for me. Thanks swap-pal ;-)

Icy Iris is dark but lights up from within. GORGEOUS!! Look at it glow!

I used 2 coats and the application was pretty good.

There should be a webshop that sells Finger Paints internationally, I really like FP!

Have a great day!

H&M My Favorite Jeans

Hi ladies!

Today I've got something for you that I wanted for quite a long time. And after I finally got it, I left it untried for about 6 months. How's that possible? Well, no idea, probably too many pretties to choose from.

My Favorite Jeans is like a blue/charcoal foil. Very pretty! I used 2 coats for complete opacity. Application was good.

Enjoy the pics and thanks for stopping by!!

Golden Rose 114

Hi ladies!

Today I've got one of my new Golden Rose polishes for you. I couldn't find swatches of it, but I thought it looked like a sort of burgundy from the pics. It is actually a bit too pink for me, not sure if I'm keeping it.

Application was ok, although the bottle and cap are a very small. The.holo is great!

Thanks for looking!!

Silver Shatter over DS Magic


I must admit I'm definitely not a fan of crackle polish. Especially not the black one. But then I saw the silver one and I was actually pleasantly surprised that I did like this one. When Cat recentely asked for another swap, I asked her if shell could get met OPI Silver Shatter. Thanks Cat!!

From a distance I think it's really cool! But I'm still not impressed when I look at it in close up.

For this mani I used 2 coats of ds Magic and (of course) 1 coat of Silver Shatter.

Thanks for stopping by!!
