Glow up already! with accent nail

Hi everyone :)

I'm a sucker for gold so I couldn't let this polish go when I went O.P.I. polish shoppping .
It's so much more than just a golden glitter... I LOVE IT:D

I used one coat of Pure Gold from Nivea and 2 coats of glow up already!.

Quicklaaay reviewed : Genius in the bottle - Catrice

Hi everyone! 
Today I got loads of pictures of this beautiful duochrome (gold to green) polish. Genius in the bottle is said to be a dupe for the Chanel polish Peridot, so I've been waiting so long until a cheaper brand - that I could get my hands on - would release a dupe, YAY!

So, it goes on like a charm and only need two layers to cover perfectly (bit streaky) and lasts quite long on my nails. I've been wearing this polish for approximately 5 days and only my index fingers are chipped to dead but my others fingers are looking fine with only a bit of tipwear.

The thing that makes it weird is that I think the polish darkens a lot while wearing it. Looking at my fingers now, the polish looks more bronze and the duochrome effect is almost gone... Is that even possible?

Anyways, I decided that I like the new brush from catrice... It polished so 'clean' (?). I had almost no cleaning up to do.

Hope you like it too :)

Quicklaaay reviewed: Salmon and Garfunkel - Catrice

Hi everyone :)

I have this lying around for some weeks now, and today it found its way to my nails.

Crap application, really. It reminds me of apropos apricot. Rather thick consistency, what makes it hard to get it opaque. Colour is quite accurate. Bit  lighter than apropos apricot, just what I wanted. Drying time is rather long due the thickness of the polish, maybe it can be fixed with a little thinner (or that's what I hope)

About the new brush, I don't know if I have to hate it or to love it. The brush is like huge and covers my nails in two strokes and the bent edge makes it easy to go around the cuticles. But it very hard to get the right amount of polish on the brush. Or I had too much or I had too little.
I'm going to give it another shot with Genius in the bottle.

I'm a fan of pastel colours, hope you too :)

#1 My first nail polish rings !

Hi everyone :)

I'm soooo excited, I got this stuff delivered this week, but I had to wait for the weekend to get started (I study in Ghent and my polish stash lives at home in Zonnebeke...)

I have loads of pictures to show. The duochrome blue/green - purple is the one I made for my mother. She chose the colours and she chose well ^.^

The first one is combination of : Space Queen (essence), Circus confetti (essence), helo holo (essence) and dirty berry (catrice).
The second contains Time for romance (essence), Make me golden (essence) and Hypnotic poison (essence).
And the one for my mother rocks Iron mermaiden (catrice) and Space queen (essence)

Hope you like them!
