Hema - Dark Purple

Hi!

Today I'm wearing a dark purple / plum nailpolish from a local store called "Hema".


This is a rich and creamy very dark purple creme polish which needed two thin coats and applies very easy.


I've used my favorite Essence topcoat again, and look at them: shinies! ♥



I used to not be so fond of Hema polishes, but they have improved dramatically and now I really like them. 
They have a great color range and a lot of effect nail polishes too. I now really love them and they're also very affordable, which is nice too!



I've bought this nailpolish already a while ago and I think I have paid €2,50 for a bottle of 11 ml.

Do you own "Hema" polishes? If so, what is your favorite colour?
I love to hear it!


Thanks for stopping by!

Essence Nail Colour3 - Part I of III

Hi girls!

I proudly present you:


Essence Nail Colour3: Boys Are Back In Town - It's Just A Little Crush 

Essence Nail Colour3 is a double ended polish which contains 2 polishes. If you'll layer these, you'll have a third colour (so now you'll get the name!)

There are 6 different colour combo's:

From left to right:
♥ Ticket To The Show / Front Row Or Backstage?
♥ Boys Are Back In Town / It's Just A Little Crush
♥ A Walk In The Park / Stop For An Ice Cream
♥ Kiss On Top Of The Rock / Dancing In The Streets
♥ Shopping Trip In Soho / Party All Night Long
♥ Midnight Date / City That Never Sleeps

Let's take a closer look at the basecolour: Boys Are Back In Town:


This is 2 coats of Boys Are Back In Town. This is a crème taupe grey color. It looks to me dark greyish with purple in it. Not a very usual color, so I wore this color on it's own for like 2 days. Application was just fine; some nails needed 2 coats, others were fine with just 1!



I sponged my tips with It's Just A Little Crush, because I didn't felt like it to paint my whole nails with it.
I just ♥ the base colour on it's own, so for me, this was a great solution to try them both.



And this is the result... Isn't is a pretty, subtle purple-violet-blue shimmer?

I ♥ it...


You can buy the Essence Nail Colour3 polishes in The Netherlands at Kruidvat for €2,79 (2x4 ml).

I have 2 more Essence Nail Colour3-polishes to show you, but I guess this one is already my favorite of them all :)

Do you own Essence Nail Colour3 polishes? What do you think of them?

Thanks for watching!

My great budget-polishes score... (and some snow-pics)

Hi girls,

I've got my hands on some great polishes for really budget prices!

Let's take a look at the polishes...


From left to right:
♥ H&M Vivid Nails Duo - 10 ml for € 1,45 (on sale)
♥ Essence Colour & Go Be Optimistic! - 5 ml for € 1,29
♥ Essence Colour & Go Fame Fatal - 5 ml for € 1,29
♥ H&M Purple In Paris - 15 ml for € 1,45 (on sale)
♥ H&M Pink Pearl, Grey Pearl, Mother of Pearl - 4,4 ml for € 1,95 (trio, on sale)


This is a Duo Nail Polish bottle with 10 ml of a coral pink and a tomato red polish. Always welcome in my stash, can't have enough of this colors, and for this price!?


Essence Colour & Go Fame Fatal, a beautiful bright red and Essence Colour & Go Be Optimistic! is a metallic orange. This last one probably isn't a color I would wear on its own, but a while ago I saw this combination from Deborah that decided to buy this polish.


This is a Pearl trio: Pink Pearl, Mother of Pearl and Grey Pearl. I'm actually not really into pearl finishes, but these colors looked too cute to not buy them...


Look at the pearl effect!

Great score, huh?

And now some pictures I would like to show you about the weather in The Netherlands...



This is the view from our livingroom, isn't it beautiful?



My precious 2-year old who wanted to taste the snow... :)
(she didn't like it, haha!)


And our view from another angle, somewhat later in the evening...


How is the weather in your country??

Have a nice weekend!

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 Plum Play With Me





Catrice Wrapped Around My Finger (v. II)





Catrice Jade Is Not My Name





Catrice Pool Party At Night

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: Kleancolor, OPI, Catrice, Essence, Milani & E.L.F. polishes

Hi everyone!

I want to show you some new polishes I got the last couple of days...


Suddenly all of my orders came in, and within a blink, I just own 14 more polishes :)

Actually I'm not a real fan of glitter polishes, but I keep buying them, haha!
And I must admit: these Kleancolor polishes really look stunning in the bottles, don't you think?



Don't know when I'm going to wear that Kleancolor Neon Pink, because it is way to neon to wear to work, but I had to have it... And that counts for the Milani polish too. but I love the bigger glitters in there! And like I've said before: I'm a sucker for nudes, so I had to try an E.L.F.-polish, and liked this color! I Saw Essence Irreplaceable on some blog, and really liked it, so had to have that one too!



I don't know if the color is going to suit my (bit yellowish) skincolor, but I've seen some swatches of OPI's I Vant To Be A Lonestar and I knew I had to have this one too! Wondering if it's going to be beautiful on me or not :) And Bubblebath is a nice pinkish color to wear alone or as a French Manicure. I say: always good to have some of these colors in your stash! :) And the last one of these OPI's is My Private Jet; the 2nd version, the dark brown one; guess this one is nice in the fall...



Although Catrice is changing some of their polishes under the same name (weird!), I like this 2nd version of Let's Mauve On! better than the first one. And I saw that this one is great for stamping too, so a must have! I Sea You is probably a color I wouldn't wear alone, but it's nice to have a beautiful green to make flower leaf-nailart (or something like that :) ) and the last one of these Catrice polishes is Welcome To The Jungle from the Papagena-collection. I think it is a bit dark, but maybe I wear it... Or maybe I'll just use it for stamping :)

What do you think of my score? Like these or don't? And would you wear these colors?

Enjoy the weekend!
