OPI Bond Girls ~ Tiffany Case

Hello world,

welcome to episode 593.624 of Sabine loving textured polishes :D Starring today is Tiffany Case from the OPI Bond Girls collection. The color is a pretty metallic light blue in the bottle. I was surprised to see it leaning more green on the nails, so it looked more like an aqua color. Either way I love this a lot!

[Haul] MoYou London Stamping Plates

Hi everyone!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me posting my newest nail polish stamping plates already. So far the only stamping plates I own are a few Essence plates and the Bundle Monster 2012 set. Sadly I pretty much suck at stamping, that is why you never see me posting stamped manicures. I do love to look at these gorgeous full nail designs and color combos and have always envied the stamping skills of my fellow bloggers. Then I heard about the MoYou XL stamper, which is supposed to be extra squishy and makes stamping especially on curved nails easier. So I went looking for that stamper and came across MoYou's super cute image plates. It was love at first sight and I had a hard time limiting myself to only three plates. Just a few days after I had placed my order, the plates were in the mail and I loved them even more in person. Call me crazy, but without even trying them, I ordered five more plates the next day. So here is a bit of a picture spam to show you my MoYou haul :)

Rival De Loop ~ Perfect Rainbow

Good evening!

What is everyone up to this Sunday? I am sitting here in my PJ pants blogging away, still recovering from some sickness.
Today I have for you a brand that is completely new to my stash. It is from Rival De Loop, Rossmann's own-brand. That brand offers some nice skin and body care items, but I never paid much attention to their make up products, as I find them to be a bit cheap looking and not very appealing. That changed when I saw the polish Perfect Rainbow swatched on Conny's blog. The next day, I stopped by my local Rossmann drugstore and was lucky enough to find a bottle of this multichrome beauty.

Barry M Hi-Shine Gelly ~ Watermelon & CND ~ Sheer 24K Sparkle

Hi loves,

are you excited for the weekend? I am, because I need some time off to recover. I've been sick for a couple of days now and a busy work schedule did not really help make me feel better. This weekend I am going to stay in bed with my PJs, a hot tea and a hot water bottle.
So today I have a rather quick post for you, but I have to show this polish to you because I love it so much. This is Watermelon from the Gelly Hi-Shine range by Barry M. I have raved about these earlier (see Passionfruit and Key Lime and Lychee) and this one is just as perfect.

Zoya ~ Valerie

Hello everyone,

welcome back to another Monday. I hope all of you had a fun weekend! I didn't do much but sleep in late and relax, since this past week was really busy. There is nothing like a peaceful pampering Sunday, right?!
I finally pulled out a nail polish brand I haven't worn in ages it seems - Zoya! I really like their polishes, still I own only around 10 of them. The main problem is that they're really hard to get hold of here in Germany. There are only very few e-tailers that stock the brand and the ones that do are expensive IMHO. So I hope I will be able to find some new Zoyas while I am in the US next month - can't wait! The polish I wore recently was Valerie from the Fire & Ice winter 2010 collection

Empties Vol.1

Hi peeps,

today I have a different kind of post for you. I want to share my trash with you :D That is the face/body/hand/nail care products I finished recently. I find that only after using a product for quite some time I can give a thorough review on it, since some products need some time in order to work (such as face cream). This post is not only nail related, so if you can't stand seeing other items on a nail polish based blog, feel free to click 'x' (still I hope you'll stay until the end of this post). And without further ado, let's dive right into my trash can.

OPI ~ Alcatraz... Rocks

Hi y'all,

I hope you aren't tired of textured polishes, yet. I know they have been on every blog, from every brand for weeks (or even months) now. I just can't stay away from them, I love the combination of glitter and the textured surface - well, except for these horrid China Glaze and Essie shades. So the last sand style polish that made in into my stash was OPI - Alcatraz... Rocks from their San Francisco collection for Fall 2013.

Review ~ BornPrettyStore 2 Way Nail Art Polish Pen

Hi everyone,

today I have for you a review of the 2 Way Nail Art Polish Pen from BornPrettyStore. This is not a usual review, where I would normally do some sort of nail design and incorporate their items, like I did in my Halloween Drag Marble for example. After playing around with this nail art pen, I just couldn't justify using it on a manicure and in a moment you will read why. Since this item was sent to me for an honest review, I wanted to share my experiences and thoughts with you, even though or despite the fact that it isn't a product I like. But keep in mind that only because a product didn't work for me, it might still work for you. So let me know your experiences with the product in case you have tried it!

Cadillacquer ~ Fireflies

Good evening everyone

and happy Friday! Do you have fun plans for the weekend? Tomorrow I am finally going to the hairdresser to get a long overdue hair cut. Maintaining a pixie cut in good shape requires quite some time and money, lol. I am thinking about going back to a happy fire truck red color. I so love red hair, but maybe it is not a good idea to dye my hair bright red whilst applying for a new job?! Guess I will decide spontaneously while I am there :)

Today I want to share with you my very first European independent polish. I don't know why, but there seem to be only very few indie polish makers here in Europe - or maybe I just haven't heard of them. One quite well known "brand" by now is Cadillacquer, which first caught my attention with her Dexter collection (she released three collections before this though). For Halloween this year she created two limited edition shades, one of which I will show you today.

Stocking Skittle Manicure

Hello everyone,

in my last New In My Stash post I told you I had finally picked up Fishnet Stockings from Essie. It has been on my wish list for quite some time, but I just couldn't get my hands on it. Luckily, here in Germany it was re-released as part of their Russian Roulette collection and this time I could not pass on this nail polish. It is a perfect true deep red that goes well with my pale skin tone. I find that blue toned reds suit me much better than orange-y reds. Anyways, to make this color a bit more "work appropriate", I decided to pair it with Sally Hansen Stocking Nude from their last Designer collection as well as Butter London's Tarte With A Heart, which has been sitting in my untrieds drawer forever, whoops.
