R-E-S-P-I-N-K peachy cracked

Hi girls!

Today I tried my new Essence Crack Me peachy nailpolish over Catrice Aretha's R-E-S-P-I-N-K!


The lighting isn't all that (sorry, it's a phone pic), but I still kinda like the effect of both colours layered...

What do you think?

Do you still wear crackle nailpolishes? Or are you done with it?

Thanks for stopping by!

Shopping: first bought polishes in 2012!

Hi girls!

First of all let me start by wishing everybody a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!


May all of your (polish)wishes come true! :)

A couple of days ago I bought some polishes at my local beautysupplier which I would like to share with you...




Catrice Blue Cara Ciao




Catrice Plum Play With Me





Catrice Wrapped Around My Finger (v. II)





Catrice Jade Is Not My Name





Catrice Pool Party At Night





Catrice Lovely Sinner (Limited Edition)




Color Club Revealed




Essence Nail Art Twins Glitter Topper Troy





Essence Nail Art Special Effect Topper You're A Gold Mine

Essence Colour & Go Modern Romance


Essence Colour & Go Trust In Fashion


Orly Fancy Fuchsia


And a couple of days later I read on some blogs that Catrice is discontinuing a lot of their polishes, so I'm happy I got these, before they will disappear! :)

Can't wait to swatch them, so stay tuned for a lot of upcoming swatches (including Pink Friday from OPI's Nicki Minaj collection, yeeeey!!)

One of my New Year's resolutions is to make more use of my enormous collection of stamping plates :)

Do you have any New Year's resolutions??

Thanks for reading!

Shopping: OPI, China Glaze, Revlon, Essence, Catrice, BornPrettyStore, Guppy... and more!

Hi girls!

Hope you're doing ok? Fortunately I'm feeling better and getting back to work tomorrow...

Today I would like to show you some of the stuff I've bought this month.

Ready?


From Essence 2 bottles of nailpolish remover in Strawberry and Coconut scent (always better than the real smell :) )


From BornPrettyStore two fauxnad Konad plates, numbers m66 and m76...

BornPrettyStore m66

BornPrettyStore m76
I haven't tried their plates out yet, but I've read some good reviews about them. I compared them a bit with the real Konad plates and I think they look pretty much the same.
These plates were on sale for $1,55!


Nothing special, just two pump bottles which I like to use for my removers. Also from BornPrettyStore.


From Catrice 3 polishes from left to right: Poison Me, Poison You!, After Eight and Dirty Berry.


From Essence 2 more bottles of Nail Art Sealing Topcoat, (a back up bottle of) Special Effect Topper Circus Confetti, Special Effect Topper Hello Holo and From BornPrettyStore some apple scented nailpolish remover wipes (which I don't like... The scent is ok, but they just don't do the job well enough!)


From Essence 7 Colour & Go polishes (I forgot photographing one!) from left to right:

66 Shiny Godness
33 Just In Case
72 Time For Romance
77 In Style
55 Let's Get Lost
78 Blue Addicted
(85 Galactic Black, not on the pictures)


I'm not sure, but I think Catrice's After Eight and Essence In Style look a bit the same... Anyone know if they do irl?


From OPI 3 polishes from left to right: Moon Over Mumbai, My Private Jet (brownish), Royal Rajah Ruby.


I know there are many girls who find OPI is a bit overrated and highly overpriced, but I think their polishes are great. They have such nice collections and colours! I'm willing to pay that price anyway :)


From Guppy (or CUDDV, whatever the name is) 2 Sanding Fruit Extract polishes, in numbers 14 and 16.
They are unbelievable large! I don't think I've had such large bottles (16 ml!) before.
I saw number 17 on Nihrida's blog and got immediately interested in the finish of this polish. Had to try it myself! :)


And 4 other polishes. From left to right: H&M Moody Model, Revlon 092 Blue Lagoon, China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metallic in Tarnished Gold, en last but not least a very neon pink crackle polish from Laushine (again from BornPrettyStore).


And two small brushes from BornPrettyStore which I'm going to use as eyeliner brushes.

That was about it...

See anything you like? Want to see swatches? Let me know...


Goodnight!

White Crackle Pay Days

Hi everyone!

Today I would like to show you my previous manicure Misa Pay Days Are Happy Days (click here) topped with China Glaze Crackle Glaze Lightning Bolt (picture heavy!):


I know crackle polishes are a bit "been-there-done-that" but I haven't used them that much, and when the sun is shining, for some reason they are more appealing to me :)


I don't know what it is, but when it's sunny, I just easier grab a crackle polish.

I like this combination: a nude polish underneath a crackle polish... I think crackle polishes on itself are pretty outstanding, so I'd like to keep it a bit calm this way...


I've swatched China Glaze Crackle Glaze Lightning Bolt before (click here) but I didn't like the way it turned out then. So I've decided to swatch it again, and this time on my natural nails...


Lightning Bolt is a bit tricky... The first swatch I've made with it looked too much like Tipp Exx in my opinion... You know, the white stuff to correct written mistakes with:




But this time the manicure turned out a lot better, at least that's what I think about it... :)


I do like this manicure, but white (matte) crackles on your nails still are a bit weird to me...



What do you think about white crackle polish? Tipp Exx or not?

Have a great weekend!
