Illamasqua ImPerfection Nail Varnishes - Swatches and Review

Although I have my nail broken right now, I can still show you the new Illamasqua Nail Varnishes! I write it in every review and it is always true - I am always so excited and curious about each Illamasqua collection. So have a look at what they prepared for us this time:

SPECKLE

SCARCE

MOTTLE

FRAGILE

FRECKLE

Beautiful cremes mixed with glitter! What else could you want? I got these already a few months ago and I really like to wear them. I got a lot of compliments on them too :) I was not very wowed when I saw them in the bottle for the first time, but fell in love once on my nails. My two favourites are Speckle and Fragile. Oh and what about the formula? As always with Illamasqua - perfect! I have two coats on all these swatches. They apply evenly and do not streak. The glitter does not sink in the base but shows nicely.

Hope you like these! Let me know what you think :)

Illamasqua Cameo and Noble Nail Varnishes

Hello everybody in 2013! I hope you all had a great Christmas and I wish you all the best in the New Year. Many polishes, love and luck :)

Today I have something special. The two new blues from Illamasqua, I am sure you have seen these before but still I wanted to show you my swatches. I love blues and cremes, so was very excited about these. I have to tell you that they are even better than I expected! They apply like a dream, so perfect in two coats. The colours are both stunning and I still don´t know which one is my favourite. If you are not sure whether to get these or not I tell you: get them! You will not regret.

The swatches are two coats in natural indoor daylight:

CAMEO

NOBLE

Illamasqua Nurture

Hello nail polish addicts! How are you all and how was your Christmas? Any new polishes? :)

I want to continue showing you the Illamasqua Rubber Nail Varnishes and I also have many others to show you too, my nails are better now, so sorry for not posting much lately :) So here is Nurture - a very vibrant neon green. Great colour to brighten up these dark winter days. I applied two coats here and no top coat of course, it would ruing the rubber finish these have.

Sorry for the lack of posts, but one of my nails is broken, so I am waiting for it to grow back.

China Glaze Holiday Joy Collection Winter 2012 - Swatches and Review

It is coming faster than you could imagine and I can´t wait for it to be here...yes, Christmas! Having tried these beauties I am even more excited about this time of the year. As always China Glaze Holiday collections contain those classic colours such as red, green, gold and silver. We have cremes and glitter and I think there really is a lot to choose from. Here they are:

WINTER HOLLY

GLITTER ALL THE WAY

ANGEL WINGS

GLISTENING SNOW

BLUE BELLS RING

PIZZAZZ

MERRY BERRY

CRANBERRY SPLASH

RED SATIN

WITH LOVE

PURE JOY over CRANBERRY SPLASH

CHAMPAGNE KISSES

If you are looking for some classic holiday polishes then I am sure you should have a closer look at these. I am absolutely sure you will love at least one of the reds. Yes, they are nothing special, we have seen these before but they have a great formula and you must remember that not everybody has hundreds of polishes like some of us nail polish addicts too. I also like Blue Bells Ring, the perfect frosty blue, it shines so much! But what I love most about this collection are the glitters. I think I will really have a hard time choosing my mani for Christmas Eve...will it be a dark purple base with Glitter All The Way on top or maybe a red base with Pure Joy (sorry about the bad swatch)? The glitters will be perfect for layering. On my swatches I used them alone and these are three coats, still not perfect sometimes. O prefer to layer them.

Let me know what you think, can´t wait to hear your thoughts :)

OPI Germany Collection Fall 2012 - Swatches and Review

Today I want to show you my swatches of the OPI Germany Collection. I know you have seen these a million times but I still wanted to post them. This collection is awesome and deserves it! My swatches are in natural indoor light so that I show them to you as accurate as possible.

OPI says: "OPI embraces runway trends with the Germany Collection for Fall/Winter 2012. Drawing inspiration from Berlin, an exciting new fashion hub that blends classic looks with the avant-garde, the collection’s twelve shades offer a mixture of vibrant color, urban-chic neutrals, and reds in variations from light to dark."

SCHNAPPS OUT OF IT!

There is not much I can say about this collection. I have already said the most important thing - it is amazing! I can´t complain much about anything. I love the colours, the formula, the coverage. I was thinking about my favourites and I would have to name at least half of this collection :)

I am sure you have many of these at home already, let me know which ones and how are you satisfied with them!
