NOTD Soft dark blue

I was MIA for a few days, I finally finished my thesis and got my masters degree :D Now it's job hunting time for me if you know someone searching for a chemist let me know ^_^ With all the stress and panicking my nails paid the toll and the middle finger on my swatching hand broke and now they are all short. I'm so behind on my reading, my Bloglovin' account has more than 450 unread posts XD


Currently on my nails are Chuck with Soft touch (matte) top coat, picture under artificial light. I hope you are all  good and now I have to catch-up on reading :D

Fairyland

This is one from my most worn polishes post I thinned it out a little bit (with np remover, but you don't do that ^_^)  and put on 2 coats and top coat. It's light pink with lavander undertones and I can't decide whether I like it against my skintone. 


Both pictures are in the sun that finally came out after a whole day of snow :)


Excuse my cuticles, they are dry and with the lack of time I don't properly take care of them and it's cold. The polish is nice, work appropriate didn't cause any problems, maybe I'll come back to it again one day, this bottle is hardly usable any more, maybe just one more manicure if even that.

We had some really good times, didn't we?

I've been waiting for this polish for a while and now I'm not disappointed. This is Confetteria from Essence Crazy good times collection. I wanted the silver glitter too but it was already sold out. 


Bottle pic with one thing that's unavoidable these days, snow :)


First of all pics don't do this polish justice. This is with top coat in natural lightning. It lacks a hint of purple that it has in RL. This is blue and purple hexagon glitter with smaller blue, green and orange glitter particles in  opaque indigo colored base. 


Other bloggers that have already swatched it complained about the smell and consistency, unfortunately I have to agree with them. It smells like superglue and consistency is similar to superglue and more strokes you do it starts to behave like glue that is getting dry. I bet they put some acrilate in it, I hope it won't cause problems with removal. And another downside it chips pretty fast :( It has so many problems but it's so beautiful that i have to forgive them


Artistic swatch =) I hope you are somewhere warm tonight :)

11 questions tag

I should be typing something else not this now, but I thought I can steal a moment or two Irina and Ibleedpolish tagged me for 11 questions tag. I've done tags like 7 things about yourself before and I really don't know what to write anymore so I'll just answer 22 questions that these two ladies tagged me for :) First  Irina 's set of questions


1. What is your favourite basecoat and topcoat?
My favorite is Catrice ridge filler that was discontinued so I'm searching on currently I use Eveline 8in1 nail strengthener and top coat that I currently use and is my favorite so far is Essence Better than gel nails top coat

Hard, really hard but if I had to choose one color for the rest of my life it would be Catrice-London's weather forecast (was discontinued but it's coming back again, yay \0_0/)
3. What nail polish was your biggest disappointment?
I'm usually not disappointed because I don't buy expensive brands, but I would say Essence-Undead? so gorgeous but chips in seconds :(

Haven't counted them in a while, around 130

Holographic, but I like a good creme that can be topped with glitter, layered, stamped...
10. What was your first nail polish ever? (if you remember)
