Guppy #12 layered with Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple

Hi girls!

Here's the Guppy/CUDDV polish #12 again, but now layered with Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple:


Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple has mainly orange and green holo glitter in it.
This are two coats layered over the black Guppy (CUDDV) Sanding Fruit Extract #12 which I showed you here.


This picture shows the green holo glitters better... I ♥ the look of the glitter in this angle better.


Hmmm... I think it's nice to experiment a bit with layering, but I don't think it's really my cup of tea.

So I experimented a bit more:


Hey! See those blue glitters? I didn't notice them before...?
I mattified this manicure with two coats of China Glaze Matte Magic and tadaaa...


I probably layered a bit too much at the time, because see what happened with my ringfinger and pinky?
The polishlayers started to lift!


I like this version better then the shiny version...

But still... I don't like it enough to wear it this way. So I'm going to take it off... :)

Which version do you like more?

Thanks for watching!

Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract #12

Hi girls!

Today I want to show you a black Guppy polish:

Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract #12

This Guppy (or CUDDV) polish is actually matte after applying, but I wanted to see the shiny version right after I'd applied it. So these pictures are with two layers of Seche Vite top coat.


Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract #12 is one of those polishes which has a gritty finish. Even with two thick layers of top coat, the grittyness is still showing. The polish itself applied pretty good; it was a bit on the thick side, so next time I'll use some thinner. Hopefully it applies a bit more equal then.


It has a nice silver glitter in it, which shows up better if you'll put topcoat over it.
I now realise that it is a bit stupid of me not taking pictures of the matte version (because the polish originally  dries matte.)


I think it's an advantage that this polish is a one coater. I just ♥ one coaters!
But my overall opinion about this polish is okay, but not too special...

So I experimented a bit with layering other polishes over it...

Keep tuned for more pictures soon!

Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish #4

Hi girls,

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

Original (matte)

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!

Shiny version of Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish #14

Yeah, yeah... I couldn't resist (too curious) and put a layer of topcoat over Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish #14...

And this is how it looks like shiny:


Whooooaaa!! 

Damn those glitters are so beautiful!! What a layer of topcoat can do...
It just gives it so much more depth... Don't you think?


Now I've seen both versions (matte & shiny) of this polish, I don't know which one I like most :)


What do you think about it, like the matte or the shiny version better??


Thanks for reading!

Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish #14

Hi girls!

Hope you're doing fine and had a great weekend!

Today I want to show you one of my newest polishes: Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish #14...


It's a so called Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish from a brand called Guppy (or CUDDV, spelled on eBay). 
I don't exactly understand why they call it "Sanding" because it's not that gritty or sanding as you would expact it would be. And I can't also discover the "Fruit Extract", because there's nothing fruity about this polish :)


It contains dark blue, light blue, turquoise and silver glitter particles and dries matte.
Application was a bit tricky; the polish is quite thick but a bit sheer, so you're tempted to put on a thicker layer. 
The drying time is a bit long... While I'm typing this, I've just spotted a little dent in my middlefinger nail :(


Do you see the different colored glitters? I like this polish, the effect of the multicolored glitters is so interesting, 
I can't keep my eyes off of 'em ♥


Another advantage of this polish: it contains 16 ml! That's a LOT of polish, isn't it?


I've bought two of this Guppy-brand polishes on eBay and I can't wait to try the other one, #16, a green polish :)

I've paid $3,55 (free shipping) for one bottle and I think there will be more :)

What do you think about this polish? Like it or not?

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!
