Old & older

I've been cleaning my nails folder on my computer and I found some pictures that I haven't but wanted to publish. 

Essence My boyfriends jeans+Carrie, under artificial light, without top coat 

Catrice-I sea you, with top coat in the sun unfortunately discontinued, you shall be missed...

Catrice-Pastel blue from Pastel delight collection, artificial light without top coat, Lovely color, terrible application. My first swatch was the yellow polish from this collection, well that is ancient history now ^_^ I hope you have fun tonight :)

Berry will you talk dirty to me?

This is one of those polishes that I've already tried to swatch but every time I do for some reason I don't like the pictures, so I say I'll do it next time. Well this time I think they are decent enough to show them on the blog. 

This is Catrice-Dirty berry, I'm sure you've already seen it. It is nice cool purple with something resembling holo shimmer in it. 

In the sun, no top coat, consistency is nice like most of Catrice polishes, good drying time I could be happier with the brush but you can't have everything ^_^

I really wanted to get this one when it came out, but as soon as I got it I wasn't too satisfied with it. I think that it might be little too cool for me.

That's it for today, now back to my thesis (yes I'm still writing :/). Have a nice day :)

1, 2, 3... and plie

This is kind of late as usual ^_^ but since I don't intend to buy some things for a while I might swatch my whole nail polish collection. This is Grand-plie in black from Essence Ballerina Backstage collection.

Artificial light, no top coat, it's black jelly with small orange glitter, very glossy even on it's own as you can see.

Artificial light with top coat, dries nicely, good texture, sometimes a little patchy application but with a little patience it can be avoided.

If you like black nail polishes this is something that is different enough to keep you interested since it's not a plain old black creme. I'm sorry that lately all my swatches are under artificial light, but there is not much sun around and I usually polish my nails at night so that's the only time I can photograph before I ruin my polish. I hope you like this one :)

Shine through

First of all biggest thank you to all my followers I never thought that there would be this many of you, I love you all <3 nbsp="nbsp" p="p">

Now I'm always trying to branch out on the blog but it seems that I always end up mostly on nail polish, so once again ^_^ 

This is one coat of Essence Make it golden over, my favorite grey nail polish Five pocket grey (I'm running out of it so if anybody knows a dupe let me know in the comments), with top coat under artificial light

On my ring finger one coat of Essence Matt top coat, on the rest Crack me black , with top coat

and another picture where you can better see how golden particles shine out through the crackle, without top coat I think. At first I was not sure about this mani but as I kept adding things I realized that I am loving it more and more so now it's not coming off until it's chipped :D

Vegas baby

Why so soon again? Well this was my lovely shopping lately and I'm so excited about the flakies. I would be very sad if I didn't catch them in time.

They are too great not to be swatched immediately so first...

one coat of Essence-Berlin story simple black creme, very glossy, this is no top coat under artificial light

then one coat of Waking up in Vegas, this is without top coat

and with top coat. Lower light brings out the green and yellow, and in full light they are more orange and coppery. Bottle contains 8 mL of polish and it has nice consistency and dries quickly. 
After this I am going on no buy for at least a month, probably until the beginning of next year because I seriously need to empty some products unless I want to throw them away because of their expiration date and I need to tame my nail polish addiction. I hope I'll do good on that field. I hope you catch some flakies 'cause they are amazing <3 p="p">
