SWATCH │ My picks from OPI Holland collection (Kiss me on my Tulips, Red Lights Ahead… Where? and I Don’t Give a Rotterdam)

Hello lovelies,

I’ve been swatching my nail polishes the entire weekend – right now I have about 100 left to swatch – because I want to have zero untried once I’m done with my no-buy. Today I’m going to show you three shades I have picked from OPI’s Holland collection (plus Pedal Faster Suzi is still on its way to me – I don’t know what’s happening with the post – it’s been three weeks since it shipped).

SWATCH │ Deborah Lippmann Yellow Brick Road Nail Polish

deborah lippmann yellow brick road

Hello lovelies,

OPI’s summer collection has gotten me interested in yellow nail polish. Yellow is a colour that my stash is lacking, so I used a discount on Beauty Bay to get me some fancy yellow nail polish.

I’ve loved all Deborah Lippmann nail polishes so far, so I thought I couldn’t make a mistake. Unfortunately, I was wrong.

REVIEW & SWATCHES │Wet’n’Wild Color Icon Palette in Comfort Zone

wet n wild comfort zone

Hello lovelies,

I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a bit of an eyeshadow snob. My experience with drugstore eyeshadows haven’t been as good – Catrice is hit or miss, Essence (the ones I’ve tried) is miss – the only nice affordable eyeshadows were Artdeco and Inglot. I’ve heard a lot about Wet’n’Wild eyeshadows – some reviews said they were horrible, some raved about them. With such a varied reviews, I needed to try the eyeshadows to make the decision.

While browsing Wet’n’Wild stand I noticed a nice green duochrome eyeshadow which was a part of Comfort Zone palette. The rest of the shades seemed nice, so I decided to pick the palette. The palette retails for 49,90 kunas (around $9) in Croatia.

SWATCH │ Guerlain Star Dust Nail Polish

guerlain stardust 3

Hello lovelies,

I have nothing but words of praise for Guerlain nail polish. I have bought two shades recently and I’m so pleased with them that I want more.

Star Dust is a limited edition shade for Spring 2014 and I’ve managed to get it 50% off. It is a beautiful shimmery very light minty colour.

This is the shade which I prefer to wear as a top coat or an accent over a minty blue nail polish. Used on its own, it is pretty sheer. I have used three coats for the swatches and you can still see a nail line.

The formula is slightly thicker than I prefer, but I can work with it. I really love the brush of this nail polish – it is wide and flat, so one stroke is enough to cover my nail. However, I think that persons with smaller and/or narrow nails will find the brush too big.

SWATCH │ Dance Legend Chameleon Nail Polishes: Roz, Sulley and Boo

Hello lovelies,

Dance Legend make the best multichrome nail polishes, in my opinion. They are opaque in two coats and have super strong colour shift. The only minus is that they come in small, 6 ml bottles which retail for $8. You can also layer them over black – in this case you only need one coat.

Today I’m going to show you three shades from Chameleon collection.

dance legend roz 6

The first is Roz. Roz shifts from purple pink through green to gold. Under-water photo above shows the true multichrome effect and you can see that it goes to dark blue.

dance legend sulley 2

Sulley shifts from turquoise green through blue and teal to pinkish purple and orange. Under water, it shows the rainbow of colors.

dance legend boo 3

Boo goes from coppery red through orange gold to green. Under water photo above shows that the shift goes to dark blue.

Have you tried multichrome nail polishes?
