H&M Purple

6 Jul

H&M has come out with two 4-packs with nailpolish, and this is from the non-neon one!

This polish is very pretty! A dusty kind of shimmery purple! The only thing is this one smells bad.. like really bad! not when it’s dry though, so you wont have stinky nails 😛

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!

Shrek marble

13 May

I thought i’d finish of the Shrek Collection from OPI by doing a marble! This is with all the colours. These were all great for marbeling, but i have to say i liked the way i arranged the colours on my right hand better than the left!

OPI Funky Donkey

11 May

Funky Donkey, the last one in the Shrek collection is a deep purple creme, leaning more to blue than red! This one was super easy to apply! Two coats, and voila! I have been told that it’s a dead ringer for China Glaze Grape Pop from the Up&Away collection. So i guess if you have either one of those, you won’t need the other 😛 i like to complete sets though 😛 i’m weird like that!

OPI Rumple’s Wiggin’

9 May

Rumple’s Wiggin’ is a light purple creme and as the last swatches i’ve posted it’s a part of the Shrek Collection! (trying to get them all out here, but i hate doing them all in one post!) It’s quite pale, and i really like it! The picture was really hard to do (seeing as i have manages to break the flash on my Nikon), so the picture under here is super blurry, but the colour is more true!

This is China Glaze Dorothy Who and Ruby Pumps and a little bit of OPI Absolutely Alice. I really like this one! It turned out to become a really deep purple with the most beautiful mix of red and blue glitter!

This is truly an amazing polish! It is a mid-tone purple with a blue-ish shimmer in it! It was a part of the Kicks collection from last year. It applies really well, and this was three coats.

Oh and, my indexfingernail broke during the easter, and there was no saving it 😦

My take on the matte glossy nails

14 Mar

I don’t know if you read her blog, but jellynat is really talented (so read it!)! She posted some matte nails, that she made to look glossy! Later she posted a tutorial (here), and i just had to try… this is clearly not my best work 😛

I used China Glaze Grape Pop and mixed it with white and black to get the different shades of purple…I need to do this again, but better!

Depend 58

This is a duochrome light purple with holo glitter. It turns green in certain light, and i really like it! At first i was a bit sceptical, but now i like it a lot! This was three coats, as it is a bit sheer!

How do you like this kind of photo as opposed to the regular kind? I had to do it like this with this one to bring out the full effect of the glitter!
