Chanel - Paradoxal

Hi everybody,

Yesterday I was talking about the new 2011 fall colours from Chanel and I remembered I still had swatches laying around from last years collection! I know this has been swatched soo many times and talked about on blogs A LOT! But I think it's just a beauty. So here it is: Chanel Paradoxal, with that gorgeous purple shimmer!

I had experienced some tipwear already 'cause I was wearing it already for a couple of days, but here it is!

Essence Hello Holo Topcoat

Hi everyone,

The weather here is awful right now. It's really hot and humid, hopefully the rain they forcasted will come soon, cause I'm sick of it.
Today I have for you one of the special effect toppers from Essence, which they released a couple of weeks ago. I got myself Mystic Mermaid and Hello Holo. I still want to own Circus Confetti, I love all the different colours of glitter. But for now I have Hello Holo. I finally got it last weekend, it's been sold out since it came out.
You can buy Essence in drugstores (here in the Netherlands at the Kruidvat stores), and these toppers are only 1,80 euros.

So, onto the pictures. Here I have Hello Holo topped over China Glaze Papaya Punch.

I really, really like it. I didn't have any sun out so couldn't capture even half of the holo effect. Application is good, but the glitters aren't really dense on the brush. I have 2 coats on and I still think it's not enough (but maybe that's just because it's so gorgeous.) I did have some tipwear because I was wearing Papaya Punch for a day before applying Hello Holo.

Meanwhile I'm waiting for stores in the Netherlands to release the new fall 2011 Chanel collection. From the swatches I've seen of it already I really want to have a closer look at Peridot and Graphite. They look awesome! Why is it that fall collections always make me want to buy them all! I tend to love fall collections a lot.

Lemony Flutter

Hey guys,

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while, my nails aren't in their best shape and today I broke 2 nails, just because I was in a rush at work. That's also a reason I haven't posted, work is just really time consuming at the moment and I'm really glad when I get home to relax.

So, I wanted to talk to you guys about my FAVOURITE nailcare product, which is Lush' lemony flutter. This stuff is amazing! My cuticles are in perfect condition, and my nails are even getting a lot stronger. They used to tear a lot and they were very brittle.

Like the name says, it's packed with lemons and it's smells like lemon ice-cream. It also had Shea butter, mango butter, lemon oil and even lavender oil. When you get it onto your cuticles and nails the butter melts because of your body temperature. I always rub it in with my pointer finger and thumb and just let it sink in. I does let you have very greasy hands, so I use it before I go to bed.

I'm a person that likes to use large quantities of everything, maybe because I believe it'll work even better then! And I am quite happy to say that you really really only need a small amount of this stuff. I've had my 50 grams since december and I think that I didn't even use up a quarter of what is in the pot. I even think I can't use it all up in a year.

You can buy this product in every Lush store, or on their website, for 9,95 euros. I'll be posting swatches again very soon!
