China Glaze - 108 Degrees

Hey Guys!

Sorry for not posting these couple of days, but I didn't have any swatchpictures left to post when a couple of my nails teared. They've finally grown back to a reasonable length, but they're still a lot shorter than I would like.
So today I have China Glaze's 108 Degrees for you from the Island Escape summer collection. I can't even tell you how much of a beauty it is. It's a hot pink colour packed with glassflecks. I'm soo glad I bought it! Application was perfect, I only needed 2 coats for it to be opaque, for these pictures I did 3 though. I couldn't quite capture the beauty of it on picture. My camera hated this colour :-(. Also the pictures are a bit blurry, and also put in one with flash.







So here it is for today! Enjoy the rest of your sunday.

China Glaze - Papaya Punch

Hi you guys!
Sorry for not posting for a few days, had a busy weekend. I finally got my China Glaze order last friday, and I immediately put on Papaya Punch. It's not really a neon orange, but it's a really in your face creme though. I really like it! It's the perfect summer colour. The formula is a bit thick though, and pretty hard to apply, it streaked a lot.
Sooo here I have the swatches!






Thankfully I took these pictures in the weekend because another nail broke. So I decided to file them all short :(. As soon as they've grown a little I'll swatch 108 degrees ^^.

Silver Shatter over Herome W.I.C New Delhi

Hey guys,

Last post I said that I had obtained OPI's Silver Shatter. I couldn't wait to try it out so here I have it today upon Herome's W.I.C New Delhi (which is a gorgeous mintgreen colour). I found that I could handle the silver shatter better than the black shatter, although it doesn't shatter as much as the black one. Still, I'm in love with this. I want to try it out next upon a dark colour (my mom suggested it), can't wait to see how that'll turn out.
So, on to the swatches and my sad little nubbin indexfinger :(. I used a medium thick coat.





 Today I also ordered Papaya Punch and 108 degrees from China Glaze's Island Escape collection. So I'll be swatching those soon, hopefully on friday ^^.

OPI - DS Coronation

Hi everyone!
Today I want to show you my favourite polish (that I own XD). It's OPI DS Coronation. I absolutely love this colour. It's a scattered holographic silver. Application was, as always with OPI, superb. I really want to try layering this one. I think it'll look fantastic upon a black polish. Excuse the index finger, my nail broke off today :(, so I have a little nubbin...



 


My next post will feature OPI Silver Shatter. I found the Silver Shatter at a wellnesscenter last weekend. I was sooo happy with it. I've been lemming it ever since I heard they were going to release it.

Austin-tatious Turquoise

Hi everyone,

Today I have OPI's Austin-tatious turquoise for you from the Texas Spring Collection (2011). This is a beautiful turqouise with a glass fleck shimmer. If you look closely in the bottle you'll also see a slight pinkish shimmer. On the nail however, that pink shimmer is almost nowhere to be found. I tried to catch it on camera, but I failed at that.
The formula was a bit on the thin side, I needed 4 (!) coats and I can still see a bit of VNL. Application was perfect though, I really love the OPI brush.








Thanks for stopping by and leave a message if you want ^^.

Catrice - Dirty Berry

Hey guys,

As a first post on this blog I'd like to feature Dirty Berry from the new Catrice collection. I had a pretty hard time finding this polish, but last week I finally got my hands on it.
At first glance it may look like an ordinary violet/purple polish, but when in the sun it reveals it's holo-gorgeousness!



It's a bit blurry, but you can see the holo sparkles ^^.



That's it for my first post. My apologies for the sloppy clean-up.
