Color Club Wild At Heart

As the sun is shining more often, I more often feel like wearing holo's, ultimate prettiness!
This time I chose Color Club's Wild At Heart, A purple holo.

I must say, this is a nice one.
The purple is great, and the holo, in the sun, is absolutely stunning.

These pics are pre-cleanup, sorry about that.

And a close-up wich shows the holo-goodness really well:

Nice, right?
Great to wear when it's sunny outside!

Thanks for stopping by!

Catrice Big Spender Wanted!

So here's the first polish of all the new Catrice polishes I bought.
It's Big Spender Wanted!; pink with a great golden shimmer.
Really, the shimmer in this one is so lovely.

(clicking on the pics gives you larger images)

I had one large nasty bubble on my middlefinger, but the application is mostly just smooth.
Close-up to show the nice pink and lovely golden shimmer:

If you like pink polishes and shimmers, this one is a must have!

Claire's mood polish Calm/Wild

This is one of the polishes from my swap with Lissi, from Nail Addicts Anonymous.
And it's such a fun polish!
It changes colour all day long, so exciting.

When applied, the polish is just a lovely purple, with lots and lots of tiny glitters.

It dries matte, and starts to shift colour quite rapidly (pics are all with topcoat)

After some time spent in the sun, the polish starts to change colour even more:

And, of course a close-up to show the lovely colour shifting and tiny glitters.

Really, I can't stop looking at my nails, curious to what colour they are now.
Love it!

My first swap!

It all started with this post from the lovely Lissi on Nail Addicts Anonimous; a rant about H&M's Bella's Choice.
Not sold in the United States, I understand that's a bugger, blegh.

We have an H&M selling nailpolish in about 30 minutes from where I live, so it wasn't a problem for me to get her a bottle of this beloved polish.
As we started mailing, Lissi and I decided to make a full swap, as I had a rant of myself; the Claire's mood polishes.
I saw posts of those great polishes everywhere, but they're not sold here anywhere. Blegh!

So, the swapping commenced.
(As always, clicking on the pics gives you bigger versions)

I got my package yesterday, yay!

So exciting, what I would find in there..

Nailpolish! Yay!
And there they are... the Claire's mood polishes I've been wanting for quite a while *cheers*

But wait, that's not all! Five Sinful Colors polishes, hooray!As far as I know, we don't have Sinful Colors here, so I'm really happy with those!

And here are all the beauties together:
In the right order, these are Claire's mood polish Fabulous/Funky, Claire's mood polish Calm/Wild, Claire's mood polish Earthy/Happy, Sinful Colors Purple Diamond, Sinful Colors Mercury Rising, Sinful Colors Sugar Sugar, Sinful Colors I Miss You, and Sinful Colours Nail Junkie.

Really, this was só much fun to do!
How great is it to receive polishes you just don't know, and to make someone else happy with some of your local polishes?
I like it!

Of course you'll get to see swatches of these polishes somewhere in the near future.

Lissi, it was só much fun to swap with you, thanks for all the lovely polishes!

You Don't Know Jacques! Suede

Today, I felt like something a bit more low profile after Catrice's Don't Feed the Birds, so I chose OPI's You Don't Know Jacques Suede.

We all know how pretty this one is, right?
Pimped it just a little bit with a stamp on my ringfinger to make it a bit more exciting.

The design is from another cheapass plate I picked up somewhere (for all you dutch gals out there, Chinatown in Beverwijk!)
Stamped it with China Glaze's Millennium.

I used Orly Bonder as a basecoat, I'm curious how long it will last before any tipwear appears!

And oh, I almost forgot, I have almost reached 50 followers, yay. I have a teenie weenie surprise in store when I hit 50.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ultimate Nail Lacquer, the new Catrice polishes.

Catrice has a whole range of new polishes, and I love them!
Such a variety in colours, and the names are great too.
Catrice really did a nice job here.

They also changed the look of the bottles, they look better now, although they look quite a lot like the bottles from Gosh.
But hey, they're pretty, the colours are great, and the names are fun.

This is the whole range, 32 new colours.
As an instant fan, I couldn't just leave the store with just one or two polishes, I took 12 of these lovely ladies home.

These are the pretties from up close.

Don't Feed the Birds, Big Spender Wanted, The Pinker The Better, Let's Talk About Barrie!

Wrapped Around My Finger, Caught On the Red Carpet, Poisen Me, Poison You!, Lucky in Lilac.

Clay-ton, My Hero, From Dusk To Dawn, Lost In Mud, Sold Out Forever.

Don't you just love the names?
I'll be posting swatches of all these polishes later, but I didn't want to wait with showing you these pretty new polishes!

Thanks for stopping by!

Catrice Don't Feed the Birds

This is a polish from Catrice's new polish collection, a nice bright yellow with a lovely shimmer in it.
Has 'summer'written all over it.
And I just love the name!
Wouldn't you just love to walk into a store, and ask, 'Hi, Can I have Don't Feed the Birds?' Sounds great, hehe.
Put a whole lot of Konad butterflies on it, just because I felt like doing so.

Oh, I know the acrylic on my nails looks a bit on the sloppy side, I filled it up myself for the very first time, without any lessons or something... :o

This is 3 layers of polish by the way.
The second picture is more colour accurate than the first I see.
A close-up to show off the great shimmer in this one:

For the butterflies I used Konad plate M78, and the following polishes:
Essence Show Your Feet Caribbean Sea
Essence Show Your Feet Hot Red
Essence Show Your Feet Deep Blue Sea
Catrice Lucky in Lilac

China Glaze Emerald Sparkle

For today's mani I chose China Glaze's Emerald Sparkle.
Oh, how I love the glittery goodness and deep rich base of this one.

Close up to show the glittery goodness:
(oh my, please don't mind the dry edges and cuticles, I do take care to them every day...)

Plate I used is again some cheap plate I bought somewhere for 1 euro.
I love these plates!
The foil on them is a real pest, I was about to throw them out because they didn't work, untill I realised there was foil on them. It was completely invisible, and só hard to get off.
See all those scratches? That's how hard...
