Delush Polish – Trendsetter


Happy Saturday lovelies! Quick post today as I’m trying to survive here in the sickhouse.  It’s been a week of only a couple of hours of sleep per night (if that) and I’m starting to look and feel like I’m ready to go play a part of a zombie in Walking Dead ;) Kids are still sick and the little man is so sick that I needed to take him to the doctor and now he is getting antibiotics to help him beat an ear infection and what not.

But enough of that and on to the polish :) This stunning blue-ish grey metallic shimmer is Delush Polish Trendsetter from the Nue Collection. Great formula, easy application and opaque with two coats. Hardly any visible brush strokes and very quick dry time. Perfect!

This is a coat of Essie Nourish Me, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two coats of Trendsetter and HK Girl top coat.


***Trendsetter was purchased by me.  I don’t benefit from clicking the link on this post.

Delush Polish Glam Squad goes Holiday


Today I have a brand new Delush Polish pretty for you. This is Glam Squad from the Nue Collection. My newest order of Delushies arrived yesterday and I just had to wear this one right away and naturally I wanted to you guys too :D

A stunning metallic red. I love this! Excellent application and almost a one coater for me. Dry time was also quick. This didn’t stain my cuticles on clean up. Other than that the jury is still out cos I’m still wearing this manicure :D I’ll update the wear time and other information here in a few days.

For this manicure I used a coat of Sally Hansen Nail Rehab, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two coats of Glam Squad and HK Girl top coat.

The icy details were made using a fine nail art brush and Dance Legend Mountain Snow white texture polish.

Color Club – Wild And Willing and On The Wild Side


I’ve been pretty busy and I haven’t been able to blog for a few days, but now I’m back and here’s the next two polishes from the new Color Club Wild At Heart collection :)

Wild And Willing is truly awesome polish. This one is hard to descripe, it’s sort of copper-y/gold/pink-ish duochrome. This one looks amazing on nails and the shade is truly unique. Two coats was enough. The photo doesn’t do justice to the shade and you can only experience how amazing this polish is by trying it out yourself!

On The Wild Side is smokey grey metallic polish. The shade is beautiful and the polish is well pigmented but I just don’t get along with metallic finish polishes. I can’t apply them without seeing the brushstrokes on the nails :/

Again both pics only have two coats of polish and no base or topcoat.


Color Club – Rule Breaker and With Abandon


Here’s the first two pics from the new Color Club Wild At Heart collection. I can’t really say anything about how long these stay without chipping or how long they take to dry since I only swatched them quickly and took the photos. I’ll get back at that later on.

Rule Breaker is a gorgeous green with a hint of blue in it and this is a good candidate for my first test with Essie’s Matte About You (if the mail man ever delivers that to my mailbox). Rule Breaker is well pigmented and applies smooth as butter. I’m still a sucker for green and this is a true winner for me!

With Abandon is a dark black/brown-ish polish with gold micro-glitter. In this one the glitter stays clearly visible on the nails and this is a truly beautiful shade. I used this to do my mom’s mani and this looked awesome on very short nails too. With Abandon takes two coats to be opaque and applies pretty smoothly too.

Both pics are taken with only two coats of polish and no base or top coat.


China Glaze – Blue Paradise


My hands felt so nekkid after the last, almost nude manicure that I decided to use a darker polish once again. This is one of my Christmas gifts, Blue Paradise from China Glaze Bahama Blues collection.

It’s a very shiny and shimmery blue. Very pretty but nothing too spectacular or unique. Either way it’s colorful and shiny enough to work as an accessory so I will be using it again in the future, no doubt about that.

Blue Paradise was a bit on the thick side. It was fully opaque with two coats, even one coat might have been enough but I prefer to use at least two either way. In this manicure I used Nail Tek II x2 as a basecoat, Blue Paradise x2 and the topcoat is Seche Vite once again.




This is Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine Nail Color 02 Luminous. Beautiful spicy red that I bought from Walgreens (USA) earlier this year cos it was a perfect match for my red satin pumps ;) I was feeling a little Christmassy and wanted to try something that would be perfect for the season and Luminous sure did the job for me.

This was quite thin and the application was smooth. Dried pretty quickly with a little help from Seche Vite. I really love this vibrant red shade. Perfect red nail polish!

In the pic: Nail Tek II x2, Luminous x2 and Seche Vite on top. Fully opaque with two coats.
