Matte Grey + white flower


Today I have a Hema polish to show you:

Hema Long Lasting Nailpolish Matt

This is two easy coats with some flower/lace stamping on my ringfinger.

I have used a large stampingplate I bought @ AliExpress for a couple of dollars...

I really like the effect of this polish. And if you like the shiny version better, you can always apply topcoat over it :)

Thanks for watching!

Essence Effect Nail Polish Latex Matt


Today I have a black manicure for you...

Let's take a closer look:

And here's how to achieve this manicure:

First I've put on two easy coats of Essence Effect Nail Polish - The Black Cat.
This black polish dries matte, but in my opinion not matte enough. It stays a bit silky matt, if you know what I mean.

So... after I put this on, I wanted to spice things up a little and came up with this idea:


This is some foil I got off eBay a while ago. I used the transfer glue, let it dry, wrapped my nails in it and voila:

Do you use nail foils? What do you think of them?

Review: OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System - Unrepentantly Red


Today I have a swatch of a polish from the OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System.

Here it is:

OPI Infinite Shine - Unrepentantly Red

The OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System is a 3-step manicure:

♥ step 1: Primer basecoat, this prevents staining your nails and helps to extend the polish
♥ step 2: Color; two thin coats of color. These are so rich and opaque, they sometimes even cover in one coat!
♥ step 3: Gloss topcoat; this locks the color in and gives an amazing and durable gloss.

Some other benefits of this new system:
♥ You can do this yourself at home plus you don't need a lamp; these gel-like-polishes are air-drying
♥ Glossy nails up to 10 days!
♥ No Soak-off, just remove it with regular polish remover
♥ 30 new unique OPI crème colors!

Isn't this a perfect juicy and delicious red?

I'm hooked... I already have 3 Infinite Shine colours and I can't wait to get me some more.
They are so pretty!

OPI Infinite Shine - Unrepentantly Red

What do you think of the OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System? Have you tried this out yet?

Review: JORD Wood Watch...


Long time ago since I've posted anything... :(

But today I have something nice! :)

Daniel from JORD Wood Watch has contacted me and asked me if I would collaborate with JORD!
Ofcourse I would! :D

Before we go on to the pictures and the review, let me first tell you something about JORD:
JORD is an American based company which creates and produces modern timepieces totally (well, almost :) ) all made out of WOOD!

Even the packaging is made of wood :) Isn't it pretty?

I got the chance to choose a watch from the "Fieldcrest" series and I chose the "Zebrawood and Maple" watch, in the color Zebrawood.

I really love this color and type of wood! It is very lightweight and wears very comfortable.

Here are some facts about this pretty watch:
- Scratch-resistant mineral glass
- Hand finished
- Pretreated with tung oils
- The Fieldcrest is splash-proof but should not be held under water ;)
- When storing this timepiece, avoid extreme hot and/or cold temperatures
- Also avoid excessively dry/humid environments too
- If you would like to clean your timepiece, use lemon or orange oil extract which is best for natural wood.
- One year warranty
- For more information check JORD's Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on their website.

At first I had to get used to the fact the watch is made of wood; I normally wear watches which are a lot heavier then this one. Later on I totally got used to the fact that this type of wood matches so easy with almost everything :)

Although I chose a darker watch, it matches perfectly in every season :)

I honestly can say that I'm totally in love with this watch! I really love wearing it because of it's unique material. I've noticed this watch gets a lot of attention from people. It's a real eyecatcher because people don't expect a WOODEN watch on your wrist!

This watch is available at the website of JORD Wood Watches for $120,-.

I hope you liked this post.

What do you think of the JORD Wood Watches? Do you have a favorite?

Thanks for stopping by!

Feel The (Glitter) Breeze...


I already felt like using some Spring colors, so today I have this manicure to show you:

China Glaze Feel The Breeze and on the accentfinger Essie Hors d'Oeuvres.

Feel The Breeze is a gorgeous pink creme which applied very easily in two opaque coats. Hors d'Oeuvres is a very special metallic glitter polish which contains silver and gold glitters. I'm wearing three coats here to get it fully opaque.

It's taking some time before Spring is here, but I already felt it a little by wearing this mani :)

Thanks for watching!

OPI Fifty Shades Of Grey (or actually one :)


Today I'm wearing one op OPI's newest colors from their Fifty Shades Of Grey Collection:

 OPI Dark Side Of The Mood

Dark Side Of The Mood is a very dark charcoal grey which seemed to be a bit watery, but was fully opaque after two coats.

I actually thought it was a bit lighter then it appears on my nails, but I have to admit: it is a color I do not have in my stash. So I'm happy with it!

What do you think of this color? Do you own some of the Fifty Shades Of Grey-collection?
Please let me know in the comments!

Thanks for watching!
