Splatter with H&M!

Hey ladies!

I really wanted to do some nail art for todays post but lately I feel out of inspiration so its extremely hard to come up with something good for you to see. Anyhow I thought why not do splatter? I thought it through and I decided to use gradient as a base!

I know Im not the only one that ever came up with it but I never done it before :) I was kind of lost to what polishes to use but then I thought "Why not the H&M trio I bought last?" So I did:

I took the pictures about 6 in the morning which is really early for me considering that I got about 4 hours of sleep last night but what wouldnt I do to get good pictures of a great mani? :) Today is also a first day in about a month that we get some sun shining for us, love it!

I started off with a coat of white polish then sponged on Mon AmieOh La La and Je T’AimeIf you are wondering how I just painted my make up sponge with tripes of each polish next to each other and sponged onto my nails! Pretty huh? :)

You can see now how much  Je T’Aime shines in the sun! Golden flakes in this polish is amazing.

Thank you for stopping by! :) xx

ABC Challenge - G like Gadient!

Hey sweeties!

I've been so, so, so late with all the challenges! School got in the way, it's been very intense and I had time for just a few swatches but hopefully Im back on track.
So letter today (I know, its not wednesday):

I used OPI Passion (probably my favorite nude jelly) and OPI Servin' Up Sparkle.

I started with 2 thin coats of  OPI Passion then sponged some  Servin' Up Sparkle onto my tips. Very delicate if I do say so myself.

Thank you for stopping by! :) xx

IsaDora Silk Road - Swatches & Review

Hey ladies!

Today is going to be a short post about IsaDora Silk Road. This polish came with their fall collection Jewels of the Orient.

As you can see its blue base packed with blue, gold and believe it or not, purple (pink-ish?) flecks! So amazingly pretty!

I believe this is similar to some of the already existing polishes but who cares, more the merrier? :)
Formula of Silk Road was amazing (its glass fleck polish), application was just perfect + drying time was fast! Just perfect polish :) 

Thank you for stopping by! :) xx

H&M Mon Amie - Swatches & Review! PIC HEAVY

Hello sweeties!

Today Im going to show you last polish from my purchase at H&M. Beware this post is picture heavy :) The nail polish is Mon Amie. I have no clue what it means but here it comes anyway:

This is how this polish looks indoors, so soft and nice. Mon Amie is a off white sheer polish with loads of golden shimmer. Its so sheer that I needed 3 to 4 coats to make it opaque. The amount of golden shimmer makes this polish a bit beige. I love this.

Again no sun so I did my best to show you the shimmer.

After I took all of these pictures an idea came to my mind, why not try artificial lightning? So I did:

WHOA! Look at that! So much of this golden dust in there, so extremely pretty. I'd definitely wear this polish to my wedding. 

All of those 3 polishes from H&M: Mon AmieOh La La and  Je T’Aime are extremely pretty. H&M did a great job with picking shades for this collection. Like I said before there is one more shade but I didnt like it at all so I just skipped it. Formulas on all of them were much better than on other polishes of H&M. Brushes are still small and annoying but that is just something I have to put up with. 
Gotta buy back up of all of these :)

Thank you for stopping by! :) xx

H&M Je T’Aime - Swatches & Review!

Hello sweeties out there!
Todays polish is so amazing. Its H&M Je T’Aime (its another one from those 3 I bought, here is the first one I swatched). I could sit here and brag about it but I will show you instead! :)

I have one thing to clarify before I show you the pictures. I live in Sweden and this time of year in the part of Sweden is hard to get some sun shining so my swatches are fixed the way they are to show you, the best I could, color of the nail polish Im swatching and not to make my skin look good. So dont get scared cause my skin looks like a lobster! Check the nail polish instead :)

Je T’Aime is a raspberry red polish packed with gold flecks. In the picture above I've shown exact shade of the red, its very crisp, rich and jummy red. NOM NOM NOM.

Here starts magic ladies, this one shows the gorgeous gold flecks! Je T’Aime is packed with them! I expected long drying time and the polish to be pretty sheer but boy! How wrong was I! First coat covers nicely the nail but second coat is needed to get out the richness of the red shade and of course the gold in it.

Overall Im super happy with Je T’Aime, I wasnt much into reds but something switched in me and now I love them! I mean just look at the gold in this one! Drying time was fast, no problems with removal and the polish doesnt chip as often as some "cheaper brands" can do. Definitely going back for a backup of it, perfect polish for Christmas season! :)

Thank you for stopping by! :) xx

H&M Oh La La - swatch & review!

Hey ladies!

I have for you something special! For some of you maybe this shade isnt proper for fall but I personally think its gorgeous! Im talking about Oh La La by H&M. There is 4 shades in this lane of nail polish but I picked 3. The fourth would never leave my "yet-to-try" box so I settled on 3. Oh La La is one of them.

Oh La La is a salmon pink polish with gorgeous golden shimmer in it. Its absolutely stunning.

This time of year my skin tone is extremely weird looking so maybe this particular shade isnt the best match right now but I know with some tan this is going to be a hit! I wanted to apologize for my tip wear I wear this polish from wednesday cause its so pretty but wanted to show you guys before I move on to swatching the rest of the H&M polishes. 

Oh La La is really good to work with, 2 coats gives perfect coverage, drying time is alrighty and this shimmer.. Im so in love with it.
As to H&M brushes, well they could have been better to my taste, they are too small and sometimes they "drag" on the nail polish creating ridges thats why you need to be kind of careful while applying them. Otherwise this is it. <3 it, <3 the color!

 Bonus shot of the shimmer! Have a great weekend ladies!

Thanks for stopping by! :) xx

Gradient, oh it's been a while?

Hello ladies!
I apologize for my very long absence but today Im back and I intend staying here with all of ya!

So.. Gradient, yes! I finally brought myself around to do another simple gradient, this time with Nordic Cap NP06Depend 321 and China Glaze Below Deck. Here is the result:

As you can see the lightest color (Nordic Cap NP06) has silver shimmer in it! You have no idea how pretty this looks in real life!

I did try to capture a bir of the shimmer:

See it now? :) I hope you liked it, have a great day ladies!

Thanks for stopping by! :) xx
