Lilypad Lacquer Molten Minx

Lilypad Lacquer “Molten Minx”

I’m very fond of nudish gray/brown colors and this is a very good example of my taste! This is Lilypad Lacquer “Molten Minx”, a holographic polish that’s grayish brown/bronze and very beautiful. Two easy coats and top coat – good to go! I bought this from Edgy Polish who’s a new stockist of this Australian indie brand.  Read the rest of this entry

Black Dahlia Lacquer "Wild Orchid"

Black Dahlia Lacquer “Wild Orchid”

Today I’ve got a gorgeous orchid colored polish from Black Dahlia Lacquer to show you. It’s called “Wild orchid” and it’s a pinkish purple or purplish pink 😀 No, orchid purple is the best term, I think! Anyway, it’s a stunning color and it’s a holographic polish so I’m in love! I saw a swatch of this polish about two weeks ago and just knew I had to get my hands on it. So glad I did!

It’s part of their new Valentine’s day blogger collaboration, it’s total 6 shades in this collection.

Yummie purple!

The formula is great but I needed 3 coats to get full opacity. Maybe you could get away with 2 coats but I did 3 quite thin coats.

You can order Black Dahlia Lacquer from their own website or on Etsy.

Cirque "Cerrillos"

Cirque “Cerrillos”

Today I have a gorgeous turquoise polish to show you – “Cerrillos” from Cirque Colors. I bought this in June last year and haven’t worn it until now(!) I ask myself why? because it’s absolutely beautiful!!

“Cerrillos” is a linear holographic and it gets opaque in two coats. For my long and ring finger I topped “Cerrillos” with a stunning glitter from Homei “17T”. Homei is a Taiwanese brand I think and I got this polish, along with 3 others, from a friend in Japan 🙂  All my photos are taken indoors sadly, with flash, but at least you can see some of the holo effect.

My bottle of “Cerrillos” I bought from Edgy Polish and I got Homei from a friend in Japan. I really don’t know if they have any retailers outside Asia or if you can order direct from them.

Burning purple

Darling Diva "It burns us"

Darling Diva “It burns us”

When I saw this polish on Darling Divas website I knew I had to get my hands on it. This is “It burns us” from the Mr DDP Collection from Darling Diva Polish. It is a purple scattered holo filled with red glitter in it that gives the polish an extra dimension.

The application was smooth as butter and on the pictures I have two coats over Aqua Fix base coat and then top coat of course.

This was the first time I ordered directly from Darling Diva, the few other shades I have I have bought from Edgy Polish. The shipping was very quick though, a week later from my order I had the polishes in my mailbox 🙂 A big like!

Swirly winter nails

Standard

There’s no snow in the south of Sweden where I live, it’s just grey and dark 😦 and today I’m sporting grey nails as well. Not just an ordinary grey but a stunning grey crelly/holo polish from Glam Polish called “Avalanche”. To sparkle it up a bit I added swirls with nail vinyls  from Twinkled T  and Glam Polish “Bewitched”. Using nail vinyls is easy nail art for beginners. Just make sure your polish base is dry before you start!

This mani was tricky to photograph … No natural light in the evenings (and I don’t yet have a light box) and with flash I get the holo finish to show but the swirl patterns isn’t showing very well. On the other hand a photo without flash gets quite dark but then the swirl pattern is showing.

No flash, dark picture but here you can see the nice swirl pattern.

Strangely enough my pictures is showing much more blue tone to the polish than in real life and in daylight. And yeah, I haven’t figured out photo editing programs yet. You just have to bare with me ’til I figure this whole photographing thing out.

I have bought both bottles, “Avalanche” and “Bewitched” from Edgy Polish.

A little of the holo effect is showing …

“Avalanche” has great formula, this is two coats over Aqua Fix base coat, plus top coat.

Holo nails!

Tonight I’ve got an amazing holo to show you! It’s “My broken down crop duster” from Colors by Llarowe. It’s a dark brown holographic shade, almost black! The holo effect is amazing, a strong linear holo that shimmers like a rainbow!

“My broken down crop duster” Colors by Llarowe

The formula was great, no problems at all with the appliction though I used Aqua Fix base coat from M.U.S. so I’m not sure how it would react with ordinary base coat. On my pictures I have two coats plus top.

I think this polish is more beautiful than OPI’s “My private jet” but I don’t own the original version, my bottle isn’t very much holographic and this polish is veeeery holographic. Look at the rainbows!!! I like it a lot!

New year’s nails

Standard

An updated post with more pictures (2015-01-02) Just a quick post from my mobile … I’ve got to post a pic of my new year’s nails! I promised sparkling nails and this is my most sparkling polish I own.
Glam Polish “Bewitched”.

I really don’t have words for how beautiful this polish is!! It sparkles so much!! It’s a silver holographic base with larger round holographic glitters that really gives an extra dimension to this polish.
