Essie - Mink Muffs

I apologize for the terrible picture. It looks too red and guh.

As I told you, I also got this polish, and I'm so excited! It's a warm, dark taupe. I think it's already on the edge of being brown. The polish dries a tad bit darker than it looks like in the bottle, I experience that with most taupes.

Dryingtime was excelent, I love the color. I think I'll be using this color a lot more from now on, it looks really subtle.

They say this one is a dupe of Chanel Particuliere, but it's a little more warm, as of what I see in pictures. But this polish completely took away my need for this Chanel.

Essie - Lapis of Luxury

Hello again. Today was my first day of school. I really didn't want to go. Meh. But my polish made me a lot happier and excited.

It's Lapis of Luxury by Essie. I wanted this polish, but with my last order, they didn't have this one. Sad panda. And then I saw it in store, with a little discount, and I had to get it. Money well spent.

The color is a lavenderish blue. It's a little more purple than it is on the photo, I tried to capture the color but my camera hates purples (I have to get a better camera). I don't think I have something excactly like this one. Application was great, this was 2 or 3 coats, not sure.

Great one. Again. <3

OPI - Rumple's Wiggin'


Today I'm showing you Rumple's Wiggin'. I've wanted this polish for a while now, and it was my last polish I needed for the Shrek collection, so I bought it in the store (Wallet says auch!), but it was worth it.

It's a pretty, really light lavender shade. I really like it, even though pastels and purples don't always work on my skin. I think this one did. I don't own a polish like it, so this is a good one.

Application was great, dryingtime was great as well. Just everything I'm used to with OPI. It only didn't dry as glossy as I like my polishes, but a good topcoat helps that.

On another note. I was going so great with not purchasing polishes this month. But today I felt so crappy, school's starting tomorrow and I thought of Puk today. So I went to La Bourse. Just to watch, they never have lots of polishes, and F me, today they did. Lots of Essies. I bought Mink Muffs and Lapis of Luxury. Swatches later on!

China Glaze - Foxy

My nails seem super uneven, it's the shade, really.

I really like this color, it's brown-ish orange. I think. It's a real fallshade, but a really pretty one. I'm not a fall-shades person, they usually make me look sick. But this one is stunning. I love the color, but I don't know if it's 'me'. You know? I think I'll keep it, but maybe not wear it as much. I'd love to wear it during the fall, when the leafs go brown. Maybe make some pics then, I might let you know.

The bottle is more showing what it looks like in real life. Great shade. Great.

And it's getting better and better, the area around my nails. Less red, less skin-y, less everything! Can you see it? Only my pinky is struggling.

OPI - Color to Watch

Here's another color from the Swiss collection from OPI.

Great color in the bottle, duochrome, I think. But the color is pretty sheer, even for my taste. It's a bit more purple than it is on the picture. Gorgeous color, but I think it's better for layering.

Application was great again. But this color is not a favorite of mine.

Hm, love the name-connection with Swiss, with the Watch, thing.

China Glaze - Classic Camel

Here's the polish that, in my opinion, is the most hated shade of the Vintage Vixen collection, but is loved in the end. I've heared that Classic Camel is n/a at lots of places, but on this forum I'm in, everyone hates it with a great passion.

I loved it. After seeing swatches on All Lacquered Up, I fell in love. The way she photographed her nails made the polish look so charming, the shimmer just great. So I purchased it.

I loved it even more than I thought it would. Not really a wow-color, but still. The application was great, for such a light color. I love how the shimmer came out. Ah. Love. Fave'd.

Another pic, I think this color deserves it.

Zoya - Midori

Old swatch-time!

I wore this polish back in my holiday in Turkey (Saying like it's that long ago, about a month, to be really honest). It was great weather, and the color really came through. It's a green polish with yellow shimmer. It was great for the vacation. Too bad the polish didn't survive too long on my nails, though.

Application was good, needed a few layers, but eh.

Sorry for the uninspirational post, really, I don't know what to post!

China Glaze - Laced up

Hell, why not. Another pink.

This is a color I wanted for a while, and I finally got it. It's Laced up. A pretty creme pink. When I first saw it, I thought the color would go flat on my skin, really unflattering, but when I put it on, it shines, sort of. The pretty and cuteness really come out.

It's really one of the cutest pinks I own.

Application wasn't ideal, a liiittle on the thick side. But the color was cute. I'm content.

Really sorry about the crappy pic, I only had my phone with me.

OPI - Kinky in Helsinki

Lesson one in blogging. The first and only lesson I ever learned at school about this. There is nothing more unproffesional than not posting regularly. And I'm doing that now. This weekend was fun, but I HAVE TO POST MORE Dangit.

Anywho. You know when you see a polishname and you have to have it?
I had this with Kinky in Helsinki. I love the name, so fun, so cheeky.

And the color is great too. Here's my swatch:

I love the color, sadly the color isn't accurate, didn't know the camera used. But the color is gorgeous, application was great and drying time was good. Everything I always say about OPI applies here.

Better swatch:

See you soon! <3

OPI - Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous!

So, this is swatch number one of my haul.

I like this color. I don't love it, it's not going on my favorite-spot. But it does look nice. It makes my nails look silver-y. The base is quite dark, but the glitters/shimmers lighten the color up. Is this a foil? I don't know, I'm not a big finishperson. I always confuse everything.

It is a nice color, that's for sure, I have nothing alike in my stash. I think it lights up great in the sun, but it's not too sparkly.

That's it for today! Bye.

I'm sorry

.. For not posting as much as I'd like. I have a lot going on in my life right now.

The biggest thing is that Puk, my cat has been found. Under a tree in my neighbours garden. He died. We don't know the cause, but I'm so sad. Só sad. I don't feel like doing anything. But yeah, that's one of the biggest reasons for not blogging as much.

Also, I've started with a new diet, which comes in harder than I thought. But I'm doing good, but it's making me tired.

New beginnings again, going to post the next week I hope. I got lots of new China Glazes and OPI's and Color Clubs. <3 So, see you soon!

OPI - And this little piggy

I bought this polish for my own birthday. I saw in the store and I thought it looked really cute. It's a pink polish with lots of really small glitters.

I applied it on my hand and I was a little dissapointed at one coat, it made my nails look really yellow underneath. You know? It's really sheer, so you could see my nailline and it looked yellow. But it got better with more coats.

It's really sheer, the picture above is 5 coats, maybe even 6. But I still love it. But it got me thinking, maybe it's great for layering.

Lookatmybrownhands! And sorry for the sloppy application.
Anywho. Left to right, one coat of ATLP over ORLY Lola, one coat of ATLP over H&M Love at first sight, three coats of ATLP over ORLY Lola, three coats of ATLP over H&M Love at first sight.

I love the way it looks over Lola. I might do a full mani with that once.

OPI - Ogre the top blue

I've wanted this color for a while now (I say that a lot D:) But every time I bought polish, I forgot I wanted this one. I bought this of the same online buddy I bought Give me the moon! from. And again, I luv it. Luv, yes, luv.

Everything went great. The application was great, two or three coats were enough and it slided on my nails. It dried pretty quickly. The color. Wow. It's so blue. A beautiful blue, one I've loved forever.

The only downside was that this color was hard to photograph. I had to stand in the shade and make a terrible picture to capture the color the way it is. Well, it's actually a little lighter (It looked right on my camera)

Pf, I need to make a blogpost about a polish that's so-so, this AAAH-MAZING gets tiring.

OPI - Give me the moon

Ha. I finally got my hands on this beauty, thanks to an online nailpal.

I saw it in real life and I had to put it on my nails, so gorgeous. In the bottle it looks gray, maybe a little bluetint in it. And when you hold it in the right light, you get a lavender lilac-ish shimmer. It's gorgeous.
It is a sheer polish, not a big deal for me, could be for you. This is 4 or 5 layers, could have used another one, you could see my nailline. Ahwell! Love it anyways. It applies on really smooth and nicely.
