Partially sponged neon manicure...


Today I have a quick post for you about a manicure I saw at Pinterest...

For this manicure I've used the following polishes:

☆ Essence - Icy Princess
☆ Color Club - Where's The Soirèe
☆ Catrice - You Better Think Pink
I've painted half my nails with YBTP and the other half with Icy Princess (both 2 coats). 
I sponged Color Club WTS to create a sort of line with a piece of kitchensponge and there you got it...!

I like this manicure pretty much...

What do you think about this manicure? Would you wear it yourself?

Thanks for stopping by!

R-E-S-P-I-N-K peachy cracked

Hi girls!

Today I tried my new Essence Crack Me peachy nailpolish over Catrice Aretha's R-E-S-P-I-N-K!

The lighting isn't all that (sorry, it's a phone pic), but I still kinda like the effect of both colours layered...

What do you think?

Do you still wear crackle nailpolishes? Or are you done with it?

Thanks for stopping by!

Catrice Lost in Mud


Long time no see, but here I am with some swatches again!

Today I would like to show you:

Catrice Lost in Mud

Lost in Mud is an older polish from the German budget brand Catrice, which is very popular in The Netherlands and far outside.

Lost in Mud is a brown/taupish crème which applies like a dream. I'm wearing two coats here, but if you're careful enough you can wear one coat.

There's nothing much to tell about this lovely brown polish... Except the fact that I ♥ it and I wear it a lot...

Do you have Lost in Mud in your stash too?

Catrice UpperWILDside (Limited Edition)

Hi girls,

Yes... I fixed my lightbox, so I can take proper pictures again...

Today I have a limited edition Catrice polish to show you...

Catrice UpperWILDSide (Limited Edition)

UpperWILDSide is a vibrant orange, kind of silky, polish... The caps says "Suede effect" but I don't really think this is suede-like...

 I don't know if it's me, but I find this polish a bit on the sheer side, so I applied three (!) coats (no topcoat to see what the effect would look like).

I normally hate and throw away polishes that acquire 3 coats, but with 2 there was still VNL showing. But, as you can see, I'm not used to apply 3 coats and wait for it to dry, so I bumped my pinkynail while setting up my lightbox and camera :( #bummer

Overall... this is not really my colour and I actually don't like it either... Maybe with tigerstripes (yesterday I said the same about another Catrice polish!) but just plain like this... no...

What are your thoughts about this LE?

Thanks for stopping by!

Catrice Oh My Goldness...

Hi girls,

A shorty for today...

Catrice Oh My Goldness

Oh My Goldness is a yellow/bronze golden foil polish. I'm wearing two coats here and one coat of INM out the door topcoat. Oh My Goldness is opaque in two thin layers.

I'm wearing this polish for two days at the picture, so there is already a little tipwear showing.

This is a typical "love it in the bottle, hate it on my hands"-polish... :(

Maybe with some stamping over it, it's more my cup of tea... I was thinking about leopard of tiger-stripes...

What are your thoughts about this colour? Like it or not?

Thanks for watching!

And a couple of days later I read on some blogs that Catrice is discontinuing a lot of their polishes, so I'm happy I got these, before they will disappear! :)

Can't wait to swatch them, so stay tuned for a lot of upcoming swatches (including Pink Friday from OPI's Nicki Minaj collection, yeeeey!!)

One of my New Year's resolutions is to make more use of my enormous collection of stamping plates :)

Do you have any New Year's resolutions??

Thanks for reading!

Shopping: OPI, China Glaze, Revlon, Essence, Catrice, BornPrettyStore, Guppy... and more!

Hi girls!

Hope you're doing ok? Fortunately I'm feeling better and getting back to work tomorrow...

Today I would like to show you some of the stuff I've bought this month.


From Essence 2 bottles of nailpolish remover in Strawberry and Coconut scent (always better than the real smell :) )

From BornPrettyStore two fauxnad Konad plates, numbers m66 and m76...

BornPrettyStore m66

BornPrettyStore m76
I haven't tried their plates out yet, but I've read some good reviews about them. I compared them a bit with the real Konad plates and I think they look pretty much the same.
These plates were on sale for $1,55!

Nothing special, just two pump bottles which I like to use for my removers. Also from BornPrettyStore.

From Catrice 3 polishes from left to right: Poison Me, Poison You!, After Eight and Dirty Berry.

From Essence 2 more bottles of Nail Art Sealing Topcoat, (a back up bottle of) Special Effect Topper Circus Confetti, Special Effect Topper Hello Holo and From BornPrettyStore some apple scented nailpolish remover wipes (which I don't like... The scent is ok, but they just don't do the job well enough!)

From Essence 7 Colour & Go polishes (I forgot photographing one!) from left to right:

66 Shiny Godness
33 Just In Case
72 Time For Romance
77 In Style
55 Let's Get Lost
78 Blue Addicted
(85 Galactic Black, not on the pictures)

I'm not sure, but I think Catrice's After Eight and Essence In Style look a bit the same... Anyone know if they do irl?

From OPI 3 polishes from left to right: Moon Over Mumbai, My Private Jet (brownish), Royal Rajah Ruby.

I know there are many girls who find OPI is a bit overrated and highly overpriced, but I think their polishes are great. They have such nice collections and colours! I'm willing to pay that price anyway :)

From Guppy (or CUDDV, whatever the name is) 2 Sanding Fruit Extract polishes, in numbers 14 and 16.
They are unbelievable large! I don't think I've had such large bottles (16 ml!) before.
I saw number 17 on Nihrida's blog and got immediately interested in the finish of this polish. Had to try it myself! :)

And 4 other polishes. From left to right: H&M Moody Model, Revlon 092 Blue Lagoon, China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metallic in Tarnished Gold, en last but not least a very neon pink crackle polish from Laushine (again from BornPrettyStore).

And two small brushes from BornPrettyStore which I'm going to use as eyeliner brushes.

That was about it...

See anything you like? Want to see swatches? Let me know...
