Jelly sandwich with BB Couture Dragon´s Breath

OMG! 2 weeks!?! I can´t believe it has been that long.

How are all of you doing?? Hope you are all doing well.

After lots and lots of stress everything seems to fall back in place. That doesn´t mean I won´t be busy anymore, because I will for at least another 10 months, but it´s a lot less stressfull.

Well, for today I have a nice jelly sandwich. I started with 2 coats of BB Couture Dragon´s Breath, then 1 coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Bluebell, 1 coat of China Glaze Snow Globe and another coat of Dragon´t Breath. I really think the combination is beautiful! I really love jelly sandwiches!

Look at all the colors that match so well together! Gorgeous!

I actually had another 2 swatches on my camera, but as soon as put them on my computer I saw they dramatically failed. So I have no idea when I will be back with another post again. Sorry.

Hope you all enjoyed looking at my pics today and thanks for stopping by!

Zoya Skylar


Today I´m showing you Zoya Skylar. A grey-toned blue with silver shimmer. Nice! It´s not really opaque so I used 3 coats. But with Zoya I never mind, because the formula is always easy to work with.

Please don´t look at my bad skin, it will take a while before it´s back to normal. Seriously, I´m not made for cold weather. I should have been born in a warm country :-) Well, who knows, maybe some day I can leave Holland and move to a nice warm country.

Back to the polish, let´s take a look at it. The first 2 pics were made in sunlight and the color isn´t quite accurate. The last 2 pics were made in regular daylight and the color is a lot more accurate, but still not completely accurate. In real life it´s a tad more grey.

Do you like this shade? And what´s your favorite from the Zoya True collection?
I´m not completely sure yet, but I think my big favorite is Tru.

Have a wonderful day and hope to see you back at my next post!

Zoya Tru & Cloe + blog sale update


Today I want to show you a combi of 2 of my new Zoya´s. Zoya is really one of my favorite brands. And now they even made flakies! Something I really didn´t expect from Zoya.

I used Zoya Tru as a base color. Tru is a grape purple with a copper shimmer, beautiful. It only needs 2 coats because of the creamy texture. Application was great as always with Zoya.

For my accent finger I used Zoya Cloe. It has a pink jelly base, but layered you can´t see that. And it has flakies that shift from orange and gold to green. It als has a few blue flakies. Great flakie!

Gorgeous combination in my opinion! Do you like it too?

A few days I mentioned my huge blog sale. But I found some more polishes that I can miss and that would love a new home. So have a look here to see if there´s anything you like.

Have a great day! And thanks for watching!

Hi ladies!

I have a drawer full of polish that actually has to go. I just have too much. But of course you can benefit from that. I finally updated my Blog Sale page. Just have a look, you never know what you might find there. Pictures aren't perfect, but you can always look up swatches, most of them have been swatched here too.

Happy friday and enjoy the weekend!

OPI Warm & Fozzie

Hello ladies!

Already 5 days since my last post! I can´t believe how time flies when you are stressed and busy. But today I finally have a manicure to show you. My skin is in really bad shape. It has been insanely cold this past week here in the Netherlands. And I can moisturize as much as I want, but it just doesn´t really make it better. So please do not look at my horrible skin in the pictures.

The polish I´m showing you today is Warm & Fozzie by OPI. An awesome foil with gold, bronze, pink and even some green tones. It does need 3 coats for full opacity. But it wears like iron. I took the pictures on the third day wearing this. I used to change my mani every day, sometimes every other day, but I don´t have time for that either at the moment. I hope the time comes back that I can do that again.

Anyway, back to the polish.

Do you have any of the OPI Muppets? I only have this one but I think I would like to get Designer The Better too.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

A-England Lady Of The Lake with an awesome accent nail

Hi there!

So today I´m showing you the first of my new A-England polishes. And it´s beautiful! When I wore this there wasn´t any sun unfortunately so I used artificial light.

Lady Of The Lady is a dark grape purple holo polish. Really gorgeous, although I expected it to be a little less dark. Applied like butter! And covered in 2 coats.
I thought Teeez Outta Control might really match, hmm, not sure if I was right, LOL. But still, the combination isn´t horrible. I was actually going to do some stamping on my accent nails using Lady Of The Lake, but of course, no time.

Here are my pictures.

Do you have a favorite purple holo? I really have too many, I can´t choose.

Thanks for stopping by!

Be Beautiful

Hello you all!

I´m soooo sorry for not posting as much as I used to. I can´t even begin to tell you how busy I´ve been lately. Lots of stuff going on in my private life as well as at work. Pfff. Sometimes I wish I could just go to sleep and wake up after all this is solved.

Because doing my nails and blogging are 2 things that are very relaxing, which is a good thing right now, I should really try to do both more often. But right now I just don´t have enough time.

Anyways. Recently I was contacted by David from Be Beautiful, a blog about everything that has to do with beauty, and they asked me to write something for their Best Of The Web. Of course I loved doing that.

You can check it out right  here . And of course make sure you also check out the rest of their site.

I will be back with some swatches as soon as possible.

Enjoy your day!
