Catrice Oh My Goldness...

Hi girls,

A shorty for today...

Catrice Oh My Goldness

Oh My Goldness is a yellow/bronze golden foil polish. I'm wearing two coats here and one coat of INM out the door topcoat. Oh My Goldness is opaque in two thin layers.


I'm wearing this polish for two days at the picture, so there is already a little tipwear showing.


This is a typical "love it in the bottle, hate it on my hands"-polish... :(

Maybe with some stamping over it, it's more my cup of tea... I was thinking about leopard of tiger-stripes...

What are your thoughts about this colour? Like it or not?

Thanks for watching!

Ruffian Manicure & 100th post!

Hi girls!

This is my 100th post! Yeeey!

Today I want to show you my version of a Ruffian Manicure...


Basecolor: China Glaze 2030
Topcolor: Wet 'n Wild Black Crème


I'm a bit embarrased about my nails... They're SO short! During my sickness they started to break and I couldn't do anything about it...


So yeah... Here are my little nubbins :(


I think I like this manicure... In real life it looks better than upclose, but for the first time, I think it's ok :)
Don't you?

What do you think about Ruffian Manicures? Would you wear it?

Thanks for watching!

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!

Catrice Grey's Kelly + Milani Jewel FX Gold

Hi all!

Today I wanted to show you my old, spiced up, manicure...

Catrice Grey's Kelly + Milani Jewel FX Gold

Yep... You're right... I've cut my nails shorter... Sometimes I like shorter nails better. Well, at least with darker colored nailpolish on. So I decided to cut them :)


Milani Jewel FX Gold is a great polish to spice up an older manicure. And that's exactly what I did! :)
I still liked my current manicure (Catrice Grey's Kelly) and I was curious about this Milani polish, so why not combine them?


Unlike some other glitterpolishes, this polish contains A LOT of glitters :)
I only needed a tiny bit of polish on the end of the brush, to get this effect and topped it with a coat of SV.


I must say, in the pictures this combination seems a bit weird. But in real life, the purple in Catrice Grey's Kelly isn't that notable, it looks more brownish. So irl this combo is prettier...


I think I like 'em, but... Next time I'll try black as a base color...


What do you think about this polish and brand? And do you like this combination?


Have a great weekend!

Arabic baroque with BM20

Hi!

I spiced up my latest manicure with a Baroque print from BundleMonster plate BM20...


Base: H&M U Must Have This (2 coats)
Stamping: China Glaze 2030
Plate: BM20
Topcoat: Seche Vite



Finally... The sun was shining in The Netherlands, and so I jumped from my couch and immediately took some pictures in my sunny garden...

China Glaze 2030, a perfect gold for stamping...

I don't know why exactly, but I think this manicure looks a bit Arabic... don't you?


Look:


I think gold with turquoise is a nice combination... Don't you?

Until next time!
