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!

Flip flop...

Hi girls,

Sorry I'm neglecting my blog a bit lately... I'm very busy with packing, because we're moving out soon...

So I'm using my sparetime wisely and that means that I don't have much time to do my nails and photograph them... But today I have some snapshots from China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy for you:

Excuses my dry cuticles, my hands are having a hard time because of all the hard work...

China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy is a neon orange polish which dries matte... Application was a bit of a pita; streaky and when I applied the 2nd layer, the 1st layer dissolved a bit... Very strange! But finally it pretty much has evened out when I applied 2 coats of my favorite topcoat (INM Out The Door). I could have applied 3 coats, so it would have turned out more opaque, but I was a bit tired and wanted to go to bed, so I decided to go with 2...

As you might know, it's always hard to capture neon colours on camera...
So irl the colour is much, much brighter then showed here...

Why is it so hard to capture neons? Does anybody have a clue?

Thanks for stopping by!

My great budget-polishes score... (and some snow-pics)

Hi girls,

I've got my hands on some great polishes for really budget prices!

Let's take a look at the polishes...

From left to right:
♥ H&M Vivid Nails Duo - 10 ml for € 1,45 (on sale)
♥ Essence Colour & Go Be Optimistic! - 5 ml for € 1,29
♥ Essence Colour & Go Fame Fatal - 5 ml for € 1,29
♥ H&M Purple In Paris - 15 ml for € 1,45 (on sale)
♥ H&M Pink Pearl, Grey Pearl, Mother of Pearl - 4,4 ml for € 1,95 (trio, on sale)

This is a Duo Nail Polish bottle with 10 ml of a coral pink and a tomato red polish. Always welcome in my stash, can't have enough of this colors, and for this price!?

Essence Colour & Go Fame Fatal, a beautiful bright red and Essence Colour & Go Be Optimistic! is a metallic orange. This last one probably isn't a color I would wear on its own, but a while ago I saw this combination from Deborah that decided to buy this polish.

This is a Pearl trio: Pink Pearl, Mother of Pearl and Grey Pearl. I'm actually not really into pearl finishes, but these colors looked too cute to not buy them...

Look at the pearl effect!

Great score, huh?

And now some pictures I would like to show you about the weather in The Netherlands...

This is the view from our livingroom, isn't it beautiful?

My precious 2-year old who wanted to taste the snow... :)
(she didn't like it, haha!)

And our view from another angle, somewhat later in the evening...

How is the weather in your country??

Have a nice weekend!
