Spring Green with Kiko...

Hi!

Finally the weather in The Netherlands is getting better and the sun is finally showing up...

So I felt like a real Spring colored mani, check my nails:





This is Kiko 296; a pretty bright green, which is even more brighter in real life (my iPhone doesn't really pick up the real color).

It is a very nice and Spring-y green :)




I'm wearing two easy thin coats and man... do I love Kiko nailpolishes!
They are very opaque and very shiny! I really like them a lot!




See the brightness in this picture? It immediately reminded me at Springtime, and so does this color green!


I really like this color and I got a lot of compliments on my hands this week, haha!


Do you also like to match your mani with the seasons' colors?

Thanks for watching!

OPI You're So Outta Lime...

Hi!

I'm back with quite an unusual color of polish (at least to me :) )


OPI You're So Outta Lime...

A very pretty bright green creme polish which evens out in 2 opaque coats...
I topped it off with a coat of my favorite topcoat: INM Out The Door.



I don't know about you guys, but I can say I practically never wear green nailpolish... And this is a real "in-your-face-green" but I really like it! :-)



I recently bought "Put A Coat On", the white "undie" from OPI to really make neons stand out and appear brighter, but I didn't need that polish combined with this one! Thumbs up for OPI!



Would you wear green nailpolish?

Thanks for stopping by!

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??

Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish #4

Hi girls,

I've got another Guppy polish to show you...

Original (matte)
Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish #4

With topcoat

Well... the application of this Guppy polish was a real pain in the ass! This polish is more sheer than the other Guppy polishes I've tried so far. So because of that, this is on some nails 3 and on some nails 4 coats. 

But the result was worthy! :)

Can't say which version I like most... the matte or shiny.
The shiny version looks more appealing in the pictures, but in real life the matte version looks very nice too!


But you have to admit: if you see this picture, you can't neglect the über glitters... They are so beautiful! ♥

Meanwhile, this is my little Guppy stash: 

Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish in #4, #12, #16 and #14...

I have two more polishes to show you... The black and the green Guppy's :)


Wanna see more swatches of these amazing polishes?

Have a great weekend! 

Thanks for reading!

Leopard In Style

Hi girls!

Like I promised, I'm back to show you one of my last bought polishes...

Essence In Style

This is Essence In Style, a blue/green polish which has a bit of purple in it. Too bad that's only visible in the bottle and not on your nails... These are 2 coats, 1 coat of Essence Nail Art Sealing Topcoat and a thin layer of SV (because of the quick drying time).


Please don't mind the crappy accentfinger; I was in a bit of a rush and didn't wait long enough before applying topcoat, so the Konad M57 Leopard design smeared... Too bad!


I'm not really happy with the application of Essence In Style. I'm not so fond of metallic finishes, mainly because of the visible brushstrokes. I don't know... or maybe green isn't my color, but I'm not satisfied with this manicure.

What do you think? Like it or not?


Sleep tight!

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!
