China Glaze Dorothy Who?

6 Jul

Another revamp! Can’t believe how bad my first swatches were 😛 and those cuticles.. man! As most  nail-fanatics know this is a blue jelly base with tons of silver glitter in it! Such a pretty colour.





China Glaze Strawberry Fields

6 Jul


This is kind of a wierd colour! It’s a pink jelly-ish base with gold shimmer! It is a true beauty! To be honest, this swatch is quite old (see the break on my index!), so i don’t remember how it applied and the number of coats!

And about my break here, was in Egypt for a week (where do egyptians buy their nailpolish? all i found was so old the polish had separated completely), and after that i have been working non-stop! Have you done anything exciting so far this summer?

China Glaze Ruby Pumps

14 Jun

Ruby Pumps is another revamped swatch! Look at this beauty! OMG! so pretty! Red jelly with red glitter! This one came out (again?) with the Wizard of Oz collection! I’m so happy i have this one! A true gem in my collection! Need backup of this one!

China Glaze C-c-courage

14 Jun

A new “revamped” swatch of China Glaze C-c-courage! A beautiful purple shimmer, almost metallic, polish with glitter! I’ll do a couple of these “revamped” swatches, beacuase i cringe from looking at the first ones i made 😛 No clean-up and terrible cuticles!

flyinhigh  flyinhigh2

Teal creme polish from the Up&Away collection! Opaque in two coats, and i really like it! Haven’t worn it as a full mani yet. Don’t really know why! There are too many polishes in the world 😛

China Glaze Flying Dragon

30 May

flyingdragon1 flyingdragon2This is a true beauty! Deep, vibrant purple neon base with pink and blue glitters! It’s opaque in two coats and it dries to a matte-ish finish. This is with Micro Cell topcoat! It came out with the Ink collection in 08.

NOTD: neon and konad

30 May

I haven’t done a lot of konading lately, so i thought i’d do something fun for today (and tomorrow)!

This is China Glazer Flip Flop Fantasy, plate m60, white konad special polish and topped of with CND sugar sparkle and rasberry sparkle effects!m60

China Glaze Yellow Polkadot Bikini

26 May

This is a bright bright bright neon yellow! It’s quite a cooltoned colour, and it looks awesome! I had to layer it over white though (H&M Love at first Sight), because of all the Poolside polishes, this is the sheerest (most sheer?) of them all!

I also added some polkadots 😛 I just couldn’t help it! The polish was a bit gloopy though, so there were some stringy-things around!


By the way, which angle do you like better? The straight on shot of my fingers or the sideways one?

China Glaze Emerald Sparkle

22 May


This is just… i have no words! Amazeballs! Deep deep jelly green with green glitter! Opaque in three coats, and one coat of topcoat. it’s just so pretty! loves it! I have no idea what collection it’s from, but in my opinion it should have been with the Oz collection (you know, the emerald city..)

China Glaze Laced Up

17 May

  This is my favourite pink!!! it’s a perfect medium-toned barbie creme! It came out last year with the Kicks collection, and it was one of my first ever China Glaze polishes!lacedup lacedup2

This was three coats with Microcell topcoat! and if you look closely at the first picture you can se the break in my indexnail, whic is why i now have nubbins! it’s really uncomfortable and weird to have super short nails, but i guess i’ll get over it! And they grow quite fast, so it wont be a problem for long 🙂
