I recently did some Essence shopping. I was surprised to see the Juice It! Trend Edition in the store because I thought it came out last year. Did I miss something? Did they re-release it? So I got some products from that collection and two Matt Matt Matt lip products plus a lipliner pencil.
I love just Essence! Many of their products are so good and so affordable.
Happy Sunday! I hope everyone’s is having a nice and relaxing weekend. Today I have swatches of a gorgeous piCture pOlish for you.
Happy Monday! :P Today I have another Jindie Nails polish for you. This is She’s a Brick House.
This is a burnt orange super squishy jelly loaded with orange, red, gold and silver metallic and holographic circles, hex and shimmer.
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…)
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…)
Today I have another Delush Polish beauty for you. This is A Night in the Asylum from the Scream Supreme collection. If you haven’t checked that out yet, do yourself a favor and go do that right now! That collection is all kinds of amazing!
This beauty is Delush Polish Bitchcraft from the Scream Supreme collection. Every polish on this collection is just stunning and unfortunately I couldn’t afford to buy all of them. I do have three to show you though and this is the first one of those three, Bitchcraft.
This is a gorgeous black jelly glitterbomb. I turned the bottle upside down before application to help the largest dots to come out easier. Cos my nails are quite curvy I did move the biggest glitter pieces to the spots were they laid flat. Other than that no glitter placement was needed. Very good formula that was easy and even to apply and dried quickly. This can be worn alone too but I decided to layer it over a black creme to really make the pink glitters pop.
For this manicure I used a coat of Sally Hansen Nail Rehab, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, a coat of Essie Licorice, two coats of Bitchcraft and two coats of HK Girl top coat to smooth out the glitters.

Today I’m trying something that is new to my blog. I take a polish/manicure and match my makeup with it to show you guys. Most of these looks are meant to be your average every day look. Something I can wear when I walk out the door to go shopping or just go to a grocery store. I like to play with colors too so there is going to be everything from nude makeup to a smokey eye. Needless to say, I have a lot of makeup and nail polish to match so I shouldn’t run out of material anytime soon :D It’s just a matter of having the time to do my makeup and take photos too. So when ever I have time to do this, you’ll see the results.
So my choice for today’s makeup look was based on Delush Polish Time To Kill from the Slice Of Life Collection. This is a stunning plum jelly that can be worn on it’s own or over a base color. The formula is flawless. It applies nice and thin. Glitters spread evenly without having to place or dab them on. Dry time is also pretty fast. It’s just perfect!
For this manicure I used a coat of Sally Hansen Nail Rehab treatment, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu! base coat, a coat of Essie Sugar Daddy, two coats of Time To Kill and HK Girl top coat. I also added a matte top coat (This matte top coat is from Born Pretty Store and I’ll have a review coming up for it later on. You can use the code NZL91 for -10% off your order).
So it was easy to create a makeup look for this manicure. I used purple, plum and gold eyeshadows this time but orange would also go great with this if you want a bolder, more colorful look that really makes blue eye color pop. For the eye makeup I used Sleek Make Up Vintage Romance palette. I really like this palette. The colors are perfect for fall and it’s also good quality for an affordable price. I really need to get more of these :)
For this look I used gold Meet in Madrid and the three purple shades from the left side of the bottom row. These look quite shiny on the lid so I tried not to blend the shadows too high up. I have a lot of area to cover on my lids and if I’m not careful the makeup can end up making me look like a clown.I added false lashes cos the last pregnancy totally messed up my lashes and I have like half of them left and they are much shorter than usual. Hopefully they’ll return to normal soon enough. Till then I’ll be faking it ;)
This look is pretty subtle and natural with a hint of color on the eyes. Good every day look that could easily be turned into a darker nighttime look by adding dark eyeliner and creamy eyeshadow as a base to make the eyeshadows more visible.
I hope you liked this post and the idea of matching nails with makeup. I really enjoyed doing a makeup post. It’s been so long since the last one. This was fun for me at least :D

It’s a dark and rainy Sunday here in Finland so this is a perfect polish to show you today ;) Dollish Polish Things Are Looking Very GRIMM is inspired by the TV show Grimm. If you haven’t watched that show maybe you should cos … ummm … well cos Detective Nick Burkhardt is pretty easy on your eyes (and it’s a good show) :P
Things Are Looking Very GRIMM “blackened forest green jelly is loaded with varying shaped glitter, all in shades of green giving it a very mythical and forest like feel. It’s a perfect fit for the chaotic life of Detective Nick Burkhardt and his endless hunt for Wesen!”
Formula is good and easy to apply. Since this is a jelly it takes at least 3 coats for good result but you can always layer this over black or dark green polish too. I love the depth that comes with multiple coats so I hardly ever layer polishes like this over another color. This one is definitely worth the three coats. Just wow!! Amazing glow and depth! Totally as drool worthy as Detective Burkhardt is ;)
On this manicure I used three thin coats of Things Are Looking Very GRIMM with HK Girl top coat. Remember to turn the bottle upside down for a bit before application. That will help getting the bigger glitter pieces out easier.
