Urban Outfitters ~ Sea Dust

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Hi there!

During my last trip to the US I went to Urban Outfitters to get a few of their nail polishes. One I had laid eyes on was Sea Dust, which is supposed to be a dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream - a nail polish that has been on my wishlist forever, but I could never justify paying the hefty 18-22€ price tag. Urban Outfitters polishes in the US are $5 each or $8 for two. While they are not 100% dupes, they're close enough for me, especially considering the price difference. For a detailed comparison of Mermaid's Dream and Sea Dust head over to Mara in Polishland.

Glam Polish ~ Conjuring

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Hi everyone!

I hope all is well at your end of the world. We had a rough evening/night yesterday. There was a massive thunderstorm going on with up to 100 liter rain per m² (in just 3 hours!). Streets and basements were flooded, transport systems collapsed and two people even died. The water is slowly receding, but it's only now that we can start to see the whole damage the weather has caused. Fingers crossed thing will be back to normal soon!

On to happier things! I have recently discovered my love for Australian indie polishes. Brands like Femme Fatale, Arcane Lacquer or Emily De Molly make some of the prettiest indies around I find. Too bad they're not as easy to get hold of here. However, I was able to sneak in a few with my last Harlow & Co. order. Rather randomly I picked Glam Polish - Conjuring, since you can never go wrong with a good green polish. And man, I am so glad I bough this beauty!

Red Nails, Silver Tips

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Hello everyone!

One of my favorite German nail polish bloggers is Lackfein. Her hands and nails are just straight out fabulous. On her Instagram she recently shared a video showing how she creates these delicate French tips on her nails. I just love the look of this and tried to recreate this manicure with different colors. 

KBShimmer ~ I Got A Crush On Blue

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Hi everyone!

With my last purchase from Harlow & Co. I finally snagged a few KBShimmer polishes. One of them was I Got A Crush On Blue, which has been on my wish list ever since I saw Nicole from YoungWildAndPolished do a glitter sandwich with it.

OPI ~ Down To The Core-al

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Hi everyone!

I have already complained about the fact that this summer's neon collections from the main nail polish brands like OPI or Essie were not neon. And I still argue that most of the shades do not deserve to be called neon. They're bright, no doubt about that, but not your highlighter color you'd expect in such a collection. But then OPI - Down To The Core-al came along to proof me wrong. This bright hot coral color with its hot pink shimmer is bright enough to be considered neon and has easily become my favorite polish from the Neon collection
