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!

Layering experiment with OPI Norwegian Salmon

Hello everyone! I am SO sorry I suddenly disappeared! And soon I will disappear again. But that’s summer I guess..

Today I want to show you what happened to OPI Norwegian Salmon after a day. I got kind of bored of the plain creme finish so I had to spice it up abit πŸ˜‰

I layered it with KleanColor Chunky Holo Poppy and then Essie Kisses And Bises on top of that.

And this is how it ended up! How pretty is that? πŸ™‚

Kisses And Bises is from the French Affair Collection from Spring 2011 Β and I have had it for quite some time, but haven’t tried it until now. It’s pretty boring on it’s own, but very pretty layered πŸ˜€

What do you think of this combination? Like it?

So, hope you’re all having a nice summer! I really hope you bear with me on my off days! I will be back stronger than ever soon πŸ™‚

Take Care!

My layering experiment with Essie Matte About You.

Hello everyone πŸ™‚

The other day when I posted my layering experiment with the 2 Golden Rose polishes and KleanColor Chunky Holo Black, I received a comment from a regular reader, Jane. She doesn’t have a blog yet, but I think she’s thinking about getting one πŸ˜‰

She suggested that it would look great with a matte top coat and seriously, as I was reading her comment something happened. I just completely stopped doing what I was doing and went and found my Essie Matte About YouΒ straight away. That’s the positive thing about posting what you’re wearing instead of posting it later. πŸ™‚

Ok, before I show you this picture I have to warn you about major tip wear, I was supposed to redo my nails that day, but just had to war them matte for a day πŸ™‚

How cool isn’t this? I must say, I am abit more fan of the shiny, glossy surface, but it is a cool change and a very good way to show you how all the glitter in there really looks like πŸ˜‰

What do you think? Which one was your favourite?

I’ll post the Norwegian Salmon later today πŸ™‚

Take Care!

KleanColor Chunky Holo Scarlet over OPI Off With Her Red

Oh, I must say I think I’m very creative with my titles! Haha πŸ™‚

Well, this is a mani I had last week, I haven’t been blogging for that long, so I don’t think any of you have gotten the feeling of actually knowing me, that you get after following a blog for a while, but I can say one thing; You very rarely see me in Pinks and Red. Im more of Purple, Blue and Green girl and sometimes an Orange and Coral girl πŸ˜›

So, this is one of the few times you get to see me wearing red:

This is 2 coats ofΒ OPI Off With Her Red from the Alice in Wonderland Collection from Spring 2010Β with 2 coats of KleanColor Chunky Holo Scarlet on top.

I’m now way over half way in my spreadsheet πŸ™‚ Spent 10 hours or so on it yesterday. So soon I will be able to share it with you if anyone is interested?And then you can also give me requests from the list if there’s anything you want me to show you.

I just got OPI Norwegian Salmon from Scandinavian Collection from all the way back in 1994!! I got it mainly because of the name, but it’s also a beautiful coral (salmon). I think that’ll be the next thing I’ll show you. It’s so old that even the print on the bottle is different.

Today we are going to celebrate Kenneth’s nephews 6 year old birthday and eat cake. Wohoo! πŸ˜€

Take Care everyone!

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™‚

Gosh Lavender Love + KleanColor Chunky Holo Teal

Just a quick post to show you one of the header images.
I just couldn’t wait using it in the header, so now I of course have to show you.

As base I used Gosh Lavender Love which is a beautiful creme from Gosh’s Special Edition.

And here with KleanColor Chunky Holo Teal on top:

I think this turned out FANTASTIC! πŸ˜€ I have made a ring with the same polishes as well and off all the rings I’ve made there’s no doubt that’s my favourite so far at least.

God night everyone!
