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?

Revisited: OPI Over The Taupe

Hi girls,

About 7 months ago, I decided to quit doing my own acrylics and started to to care of my natural nails again.
Because of that, I will show you OPI Over The Taupe again. I was wearing acrylics when I swatched this polish and I now wanted to show this beauty again. Because it now looks SO much better on my real nails...

Isn't it a beauty? I keep grabbing this gorgeous taupe chocolate color! I really adore it... ♥

In general, I ♥ OPI polishes, because of their great wide brushes, and the consistency of their polishes.
But Over The Taupe is definitely in my top 5 of favorite polishes!

I'm wearing two coats, with one coat of my new INM Out The Door Fast Drying Top Coat.

♥ ♥ ♥ 
I know it isn't the most interesting polish to revisit again, but this is one of the most viewed swatches (according to my blogstatistics) so because of that I thought this one deserves some more attention :)

Thanks for watching!
P.S. Last chance to join my 160 Followers Giveaway!!

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 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!

OPI Over The Taupe...


Today I want to show you one of my newer polishes: OPI's Over The Taupe.
It's a chocolate-mocca brownish color, I really like the color and application of it.

And this picture above is in taken in daylight / shade.

I have a job at an office, and I think this color is well suited for office-kinda-jobs.

What do you think about this color?

Have a nice evening!
