Catrice Grey's Kelly + Milani Jewel FX Gold

Hi all!

Today I wanted to show you my old, spiced up, manicure...

Catrice Grey's Kelly + Milani Jewel FX Gold

Yep... You're right... I've cut my nails shorter... Sometimes I like shorter nails better. Well, at least with darker colored nailpolish on. So I decided to cut them :)


Milani Jewel FX Gold is a great polish to spice up an older manicure. And that's exactly what I did! :)
I still liked my current manicure (Catrice Grey's Kelly) and I was curious about this Milani polish, so why not combine them?


Unlike some other glitterpolishes, this polish contains A LOT of glitters :)
I only needed a tiny bit of polish on the end of the brush, to get this effect and topped it with a coat of SV.


I must say, in the pictures this combination seems a bit weird. But in real life, the purple in Catrice Grey's Kelly isn't that notable, it looks more brownish. So irl this combo is prettier...


I think I like 'em, but... Next time I'll try black as a base color...


What do you think about this polish and brand? And do you like this combination?


Have a great weekend!

Catrice Grey's Kelly

Hi ladies!

Today I would like to show you: Catrice Grey's Kelly...


Grey's Kelly is a brownish taupe color with a purple undertone. In some light it is brownish; in other lighting it looks more purple. Kind of eggplant-like. (In Holland we call it 'Aubergine'.)


In this picture the purple shows better. I really like this kind of colors.
They're very suitable for the autumn, if you ask me...


As usually, this are 2 coats, with 2 coats of SV topcoat.


Isn't it a beauty? ♥

What do you think about this color? And do you own some of the new Catrice polishes?

Have a nice day!

Catrice Just Married

Hi!

Today I want to show you Catrice Just Married...


Just Married (this is the 1st version) is a baby pink with shimmer, and maybe that's the reason why I've never wore it before... 

I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with polishes with a metallic/shimmer finish...


I don't know why exactly, because when I look at these pictures, I think the color is beautiful :)


I must admit, I have never wore it before, although I have it for quite a while. But I wore this for almost 8 days :)

 

These are 2 coats with 2 coats of Seche Vite (and I don't mention it ever, but underneath I always use my favorite Base Coat: CND Stickey Base Coate, which I reviewed here).


What do you think of this color? Would you wear it yourself?

Catrice Absolutely Chinchilly

Hi everyone!

Today I want to show you Catrice's Absolutely Chinchilly...


This is also one of the polishes that has been in my stash for quite a while, and I've never worn it...

I admit, I had to get used to the color...

I kept looking at my nails... Is it brown... Is is grey?
I think it is a sort of taupe... Not too brownish, not too greyish.. but a bit in the middle.


This is 2 coats, and 2 coats of Seche Vite (my alltime favorite topcoat).


When I got used to it, I started to really like the color! I think it is suitable for almost all skintypes and you can match it with many clothing colors...



I think it is a pretty chique and sophisticated color, don't you?



I don't know if it is me, but I always thought Chinchilla's were grey... And this polish isn't really grey...




OK, the color of this baby Chinchilla is getting close...


Isn't he/she cute? ♥

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Shopping: Kleancolor, OPI, Catrice, Essence, Milani & E.L.F. polishes

Hi everyone!

I want to show you some new polishes I got the last couple of days...


Suddenly all of my orders came in, and within a blink, I just own 14 more polishes :)

Actually I'm not a real fan of glitter polishes, but I keep buying them, haha!
And I must admit: these Kleancolor polishes really look stunning in the bottles, don't you think?



Don't know when I'm going to wear that Kleancolor Neon Pink, because it is way to neon to wear to work, but I had to have it... And that counts for the Milani polish too. but I love the bigger glitters in there! And like I've said before: I'm a sucker for nudes, so I had to try an E.L.F.-polish, and liked this color! I Saw Essence Irreplaceable on some blog, and really liked it, so had to have that one too!



I don't know if the color is going to suit my (bit yellowish) skincolor, but I've seen some swatches of OPI's I Vant To Be A Lonestar and I knew I had to have this one too! Wondering if it's going to be beautiful on me or not :) And Bubblebath is a nice pinkish color to wear alone or as a French Manicure. I say: always good to have some of these colors in your stash! :) And the last one of these OPI's is My Private Jet; the 2nd version, the dark brown one; guess this one is nice in the fall...



Although Catrice is changing some of their polishes under the same name (weird!), I like this 2nd version of Let's Mauve On! better than the first one. And I saw that this one is great for stamping too, so a must have! I Sea You is probably a color I wouldn't wear alone, but it's nice to have a beautiful green to make flower leaf-nailart (or something like that :) ) and the last one of these Catrice polishes is Welcome To The Jungle from the Papagena-collection. I think it is a bit dark, but maybe I wear it... Or maybe I'll just use it for stamping :)

What do you think of my score? Like these or don't? And would you wear these colors?

Enjoy the weekend!

Shopping: Zoya, Catrice, Dearlee & BK polishes!

Hi everyone!

Hope you're doing fine. I'm so happy with my new polishes!! Let's take a quick look:

Zoya Maura

WOW!! Zoya Maura is definitely the most beautiful red I've ever polished my nails with!
What a beautiful tomato-red it is! The application was so easy; 2 coats and they went on like a dream!
HAPPY, HAPPY, JOY, JOY! :)

Zoya Ali

Zoya Ali is a beautiful neon pink. I've only swatched this one on my nailwheel, and unfortunately the application was not the same as with Maura :(
Ali needed 3 coats to get opaque and is a bit more sheer than Maura. Seems like this formula is a bit different.



Catrice 320 Back To Black

Catrice Back To Black isn't what the name suspect it to be: black!
The previous version was black. This version is a dark grey with a tiny bit of shimmer. Haven't tried this one on my nails, but will swatch it soon!



Catrice 050 Moulin Rouge Light

Catrice Moulin Rouge Light, from the Ultimate Nudes Collection is a nice and soft peachy pink.
I HAD to have this polish, and the last couple of months it was always sold out, so now I have Moulin Rouge FINALLY! :)



Catrice 030 My Café Au Lait At Nôtre-Dame
Damnnn what a long name for a polish! :) But it sure is a nice name.
My Café Au Lait At Nôtre-Dame is a dark beige nude polish. I love nudes! And if you're working at an office and your nails shouldn't get attention all the time; this is a lovely and decent color!




Catrice 040 Petit Four As Dessert
I wore Petit Four As Dessert only 1 time and at first I thought it was wayyy to dark to match my skintone, but later on I started to like it more and more. It is a soft light brown / mocca with a hint of shimmer. I think it is a beautiful color!


Dearlee 007 from Born Pretty Store

I ordered two polishes from Born Pretty Store, and this is one of them. Strange enough the color on the website is described as light blue, and so does the color on the picture appear.
The color irl is actually mint green and despite the fact that I was looking for a baby blue pastel color, I got this one... But I like it anyway :)


BK 04 from Born Pretty Store

This is the 2nd polish I ordered from Born Pretty Store: a Smokey Grey Black matte polish.
It contains very tiny sparkling glitters, which you only can see when you'll put topcoat over it.
The swatch on my nailwheel looks very beautiful, so I can't wait to wear this one!

Which one would you like to see first??

Love,
Kim
