[Swatch & Review] Sally Hansen Guilty Pleasures Collection ~ Rule Of Plum, Glitter Bomb & Diamond Jubilee

Sunday, November 09, 2014


Happy Sunday everyone!

I hope you're all having a great weekend so far! You may have realized that I have been posting a bit less this month. Work just keeps me super busy, plus I am preparing for a scientific meeting in Washington DC and a job interview in Cincinnati next week. I am excited and scared at the same time. As a reward, I am going to NYC afterwards to do some damage to my wallet and do some early Christmas shopping.

Yesterday I received three of six polishes from the new Sally Hansen Guilty Pleasures Limited Edition for winter 2014. They looked so pretty in their bottles, I had to swatch them immediately. For my thoughts on Rule Of Plum, Glitter Bomb and Diamond Jubilee, read on after the jump!

L'Oreal Color Riche - Hidden Gems

Wednesday, November 05, 2014

Hi everyone!

Today I have a little drugstore gem *pun intended* for you. I recently inherited L'Oreal - Hidden Gems from a friend who does not like textured polishes. Being the liquid sand lover that I am, I willingly offered it a new home where it will be well-loved.

China Glaze ~ But Of Corpse

Sunday, November 02, 2014

Happy Sunday everyone!

I hope you all had a great time trick or treating or attending a Halloween party :) I had a long work day and went to bed early, so I did not celebrate Halloween. Still, I wanted to dress my nails properly. Since I have done quite a few Halloween designs this year, I felt like wearing a plain polish this time and the one I went with was But Of Corpse from China Glaze's most recent Halloween collection called Apocalypse Of Color.

Neon Drip Nails for Halloween

Wednesday, October 29, 2014


Back in early Summer this year I was keen on getting my hands on the Essie "neon" collection, but then did not find the time to really wear them. But who says you can wear neon polishes only during summer? They also make for a perfect slime/paint drip manicure for Halloween!

[Halloween] Crime Scene Nails

Monday, October 27, 2014

I have another Halloween-ish manicure for you! I have seen quite a few crime scene nails like this before, but never did some myself, because my free-hand skills aren't the best. 
Being a blogger for a little over three years, it is about time to step up my nail art game. I feel like I owe that to you, my fellow readers. But I am not only doing this for you, but also to see myself evolve, so one day I will be able to look back and see the improvements I have made. Even though my free-hand designs are nowhere near perfect, I will share them with you anyway. That way you see that nail bloggers aren't perfect and their (or at least my) manicures are a fail from time to time.
