Matching Nails & Makeup – My Mother’s Day Look


It’s been a while since I did a “Matching Nails & Makeup” post so here we go. I did this look for Mother’s Day. I started by wanting to do neutral/nude eyes and bright red lipstick and nails and ended up with something else. I remembered my new e.l.f. Disney Elsa palette and wanted to use that. I also had to use fake lashes again cos it’s the pollen season. I’ve been having such bad allergies and I’ve been rubbing my eyes (it’s not a smart thing to do, I know) so hard I’ve lost some lashes too.


piCture pOlish – Sizzle


Hello, hello! I have a new favorite hot pink! Holy crap this polish is awesome!

piCture pOlish Sizzle by Cosmetic Sanctuary is just amazing in every way. The color is in your face bright hot pink and the formula is just perfection. I mean this practically applied itself.  Opaque with two coats and quick dry time. This also has a very subtle scattered holo effect that is only visible in direct sunlight.

It doesn’t get any better than this! (more…)

Jindie Nails – Red Velvet Revolver Re-formulated


Hello lovelies! Let’s try this comeback again. Believe it or not but we have been sick … AGAIN … and this time it was norovirus. It’s still not completely gone but I’m good enough to sit down and do something. I have so so much stuff to show you guys. I would need at least a week to work a few hours a day to get everything photographed, tested, blog posts written etc. Unfortunately I don’t have a few extra hours a day right now but I’ll try my best to get the regular posts going again as soon as possible.

So today I have another Jindie Nails polish for you. This is Red Velvet Revolver Re-formulated. It’s a gorgeous burgundy jelly with gold, silver and holographic glitter. This was actually more opaque than I expected and I got a good result with just two coats. Application was easy and I didn’t fish for the glitter. I did turn the bottle upside down before application as usual. Also no glitter placement was needed. (more…)

My newest Dollish Polish pretties


Hello lovelies! As you have probably noticed I’ve been on a short break. I’ve just felt completely drained out of energy and tried to charge my batteries a little. Yeah, I have too much to do, no charging happening any time soon so I just better get back on the saddle and suck it up ;) I’ll start by publishing the posts when ever and after I get a few more of them ready I’ll start the regular scheduled posts again.

So here’s two new additions to my ever growing Dollish Polish collection. These are from the Pulp Fiction collection and as I write this they are both available at Dollish Polish webstore.

First we have English Mother F*ucker, Do You Speak It?

“soft rose/berry shade has a subtle metallic sheen with a hint of red & pink glass flecks”

This was almost a one coater for me but I applied two. So easy to apply nice and smooth. Dry time was quick too. I wore this for at least 4 days and there was no chipping. Very good quality and lovely color! I also love the fact that I can see the shimmer on the nails too and it’s not only visible in the bottle.

On the photos I’m wearing one coat of Essie Nourish Me, one coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two coats of English Mother F*ucker, Do You Speak It?  and HK Girl top coat.


The other one I bought from this collection is Zed’s Dead Baby, Zed’s Dead.

“a rich mossy olive green, loaded with green iridescent flakes & micro flakes”

This one is more jelly like but still opaque with two coats. Also easy to apply and dried fast. Flakes are quite visible on this one and I just love this shade of green. I think this would also make a great base for stamping.

This is one coat of Essie Nourish Me, one coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two coats of Zed’s Dead Baby, Zed’s Dead and HK Girl top coat.

Glam Polish – Fairytale Life Duo (Mei Mei’s Signatures Exclusive)


For a while I’ve been drooling over Glam Polish pretties and I finally got around ordering some. I bought the Fairytale Duo that is Mei Mei’s Signatures exclusive. The polishes are pink Princess Parking Only and purple Beauty Queen. Can I just say OMG!! I love these!

Princess Parking Only is such a bright pink, almost neon and Beauty Queen is the prettiest purple I own now. These are so bright and loud and super pretty at the same time. Both of them also have holo micro glitter on them. Unfortunately I have no sunlight photo of Princess Parking Only but it is a sparkling as Beauty Queen is on direct sunlight.

Formula on both of these was excellent, almost a one coater. So easy to apply and normal dry time. I wore both of these for three days and there was no chipping or staining the nails. You have to rub a little with the remover cos of the micro-glitter but nothing like actual glitter polish.

For both of these manicures I have a coat of Essie Nourish Me, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two thin coats of polish and HK Girl top coat.

The duo is not available at the moment but will be restocked in the future. Follow Mei Mei’s Signatures FB page for more information.

Delush Polish – Orchid Situation


Today I have another lovely Delush Polish shade for you. This is Orchid Situation from 2014 Essence of Summer Collection. This polish is discontinued but is still available on Delush Polish store for a discounted price.

I absolutely love this color! The shade of purple goes really well with my skin tone and the green/turquoise shimmer makes this polish very unique.




Formula on this was excellent. Very easy to apply and opaque with two coats, though longer nails might need three. Dry time was super fast and no chipping in three days. Removal was also easy and there was no staining.

For this manicure I used a coat of Essie Nourish Me, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two coats of Orchid Situation and HK Girl top coat. The square studs are from Born Pretty Store.
