China Glaze Skyscraper (and a little more)

Wohoo! Finally my four chosen polishes from China Glaze’s fall collection, Metro, has arrived!! πŸ˜€

I chose Skyscraper, Trendsetter and Midtown Magic from the Downtown set and CG in the City from the Uptown set.
I might get more, but don’t know yet.

Today I’m going to show you Skyscraper, which was my hands down favourite from swatches I have seen so far.
I like it ALOT! It’s lots of silver glitter in a dark blue jelly. This is 2 coats:

As you can see I have the wrong bottle in my hand. I grabbed “the” polish and went outside to take the picture and ended up having to walk a little to find sun as I took the pictures quite late. When I was ready to take the pictures I realised I had the wrong polish with me and I couldn’t be bother to go back and change. Hope you forgive me!? πŸ˜‰ (The bottle is China Glaze CG in the City)

So, what do you think? It is a beauty, isn’t it? πŸ™‚

The only negative was that the formula was abit “gooey”, but some thinner will probably do the trick there.

I also have a little sneakpeek of all four, as I swatched them each on a nail to try them out:

From left: Skyscraper, Trendsetter, CG in the City and Midtown Magic.
Of the four I actually love Trendsetter and Midtown Magic the most! How crazy is that? Especially with Skyscraper being blue and CG in the City being abit purple AND they’re both glitters!? Someone call a doctor, I must be ill… πŸ˜›

Talking about doctors, that’s what’s occupied my free time lately. Me and my boyfriend are completely hooked on House! We’re now about to start season 3 and there is in total 7 seasons (so far)! phew!

One last thing before I say good night. I just remembered that when I showed you Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Grass Slipper I told you that I layered it the after. With KleanColor Chunky Holo Clover of course! And HERE it finally is:

Whatcha think? πŸ™‚Β 

Good night all nail polish junkies!

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Grass Slipper

Oh god, I’m becoming “one of them”.
One of those bloggers who always promises to blog more, come back stronger blah blah..
Ok, I’m going to stop promising anything and just blog when I feel like it. It’s not like it’s a duty. It’s supposed to be fun and for some reason as soon as I HAVE to do something it’s not much fun anymore πŸ˜› haha

Anyhow, this is the one polish I got in RisΓΈr, when I was there. And old Sally Hansen polish, but a new one to us here in Norway.
This is my first try with the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes and this is Β my thoughts:

I love the bottle and the lid. It’s larger than I thought after just seeing pictures of it.
The brush stick is LONG and flat and both are negatives to me because it just takes some getting used to as its unusually long and when it’s flat it Β grabs polish like crazy and you really have to wipe it off well to prevent getting a huge drop on the nail.
The brush bristles are wide and curved kind of like IsaDora and YSL polishes, I know many of you in the nail polish world hate this brush, but personally, I love it. It fits my nails perfectly.
The formula on this particular one is abit weird. There’s no problem applying it and it looks very pigmented, but you still see the nail line through.. Weird.
On the picture I show you here I have 3 coats! It also dries a shade darker than it is in the bottle.

Right. Here you haveΒ Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Grass Slipper:

I LOVE the colour though!! I was looking at my nails ALL the time when wearing it and I have also painted my toes in the same colour.

So, what do you guys think? πŸ™‚ Do you own any of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes?

I also layered another polish over this one after a day, can anyone guess which one? I’ll show you that next! πŸ™‚

Take Care!

Layer marathon: KleanColor Chunky Holo Black over Golden Rose 166 over Golden Rose 194.

Hello everyone! What I’m going to show you today must be the most fab thing I’ve ever had on my nails and I’m not going to hide that it’s inspired of The Swatchaholic!

I have a new, very good friend who has started to get her nails done by me about once a week. And she just got back from Germany where she was in Berlin and some city in Poland and did a little nail polish shopping for me. The two Golden Rose polishes came from her, not sure where she bought them though.. Give me a shout if you’re interested and I’ll ask her! πŸ™‚

Well, let’s get to the nails, this is Golden Rose 194 by it’s own:

And here it is with Golden Rose 166 on top:

And now, the awesomeness! With KleanColor Chunky Holo Black on top of that:

This really deserved 3 pictures! Im in awe! And can’t get enough of looking at my nails! WOW πŸ˜€

The Golden Rose polishes were a dream to apply, the blue was a 2-coater and I had one coat of the glitter one. The glitter spread perfectly, not like some glitter polishes where you either get nothing or you get too much all lumped.
Apart from that the KleanColor polishes really STINK, they really are lovely. Great to apply, looks fantastic and dries pretty fast.

So, what do you think of this?

Take Care, everyone πŸ™‚

Orly Here Comes Trouble.

Hello everyone! Hope you’ve all had a great weekend?
Mine has been a blast! It’s so much fun to have Cecilie here! πŸ™‚ Even though it’s exhausting!! πŸ˜‰ We have visited friends, been out in town, had drinks, had a great girls night in with alot of nail polish and a nice walk at the beach with friends and dog (in pouring rain) πŸ™‚

She left this morning back to Oslo. The time goes so fast! 😦 Thanks, Cecilie for a great weekend! πŸ™‚

Well, over to the polish I want to show you today. The first time I saw this polish I was chatting with Cecilie on Facebook and I linked it to her and said: “How much ME is this??” And she replied something like: “no shit, you HAVE to have this!”
So, of course, I had to get it and here it is; Orly Here Comes Trouble:

This is only 2 coats, witha 3rd one it would be completely opaque! For everyone who knows me this really should be named after me πŸ˜‰ Everything about it is just “Karoline” πŸ™‚
I have also made rings and earrings with this one. One day I have to take pictures of all the jewelry I’ve made so I can show you πŸ™‚

I also have a plan of making some sort of spreadsheet over my nail polish collection. Wow, that’ll be some job! πŸ˜€

Now I’ve got to go and get ready for making dinner. My BF is coming home from the hospital for dinner tonight and I can’t wait! β™₯Β πŸ™‚

Take Care!
