Ooeeh look at this pretty pretty :) It's Sally H. Nail Prism Pink Rose Diamond, which I bought on Evulbay and not regreted it at aaalll. I love my Arley , OPI DS, Teeez, S-he holos...and all the bransd I spontaniously seem to forgotten :S Don't get me wrong, each brand has it's own uniquenes. But this one...was pure unicorn-pee on my nails. It applied perrrfect with 2 thin layers, no base or tc and lasted at least 4 days without tipwear. Love love love it!!
We Love Fashion is having amazing **Give-Aways** which end on September 30th, because of their blogoversairy!! If you would like to participate, there are some small "rules". One of them being; only available for dutch and belgian readers.
Don't you love cupcakes!! The come in various shapes, sizes, colors, tastes etc etc. I was lucky enough to taste some amazing ones during our NY trip. Even though I will never ever bake any that will match the quality of bakerys cupcakes. But I always love to try out new stuff!!
This was the first time I made ganache (a mix of chocolate, butter and cream) and I will defo make it more often, nomnom it tasted just great! After a night in the fridge it looked all perfect as well.
The soft lilacs have an icing with cream cheese..which was somewhat thin, but tasted so sweet!! I love adding edible glitsorz :)
ooeehhh and!!! I HAD to buy these polishes, they`re just unpacked, haven`t even opened a bottle!! China Glaze's 2011 halloween collection wooop.
It's Alive, Haunting, Black Mesh (crackle), Near Dark, Crimson, Gouish Glow (glow in the dark), Fast Forward Top Coat (amazing product!!)
I`ve got a week off from work, which is purely relaxing, celebrate my bday on 1st of September by shopping with my friend in Antwerp, and paint my nails!! I`m pretty sure these polishes will pass as well. But first I have some beauties on my desk which I gained from sweet swaps ;)
I wanted to show you some great pics of my new lovely OPI - My Address is "Hollywood" polish. I spend some time filing my nails a bit shorter and in shape, doing my cuticles or rather get rid of them etc etc. Painting them in an extremely gorgeous pinky (slight hint of coral) with shimmers in it....but I descided to do some gardening and didn`t think about taking any photos before that :S So my entire mani is ruined and all I can do is laugh really. Polish chipped of at a few nails, 2 nails miss a piece of nail as well, skin is all dirty and yuck!! They just need 2-3 days to get well again ;)
But!!! not to leave you all disapointed...I`ll show you something else.
This sweetie is Robin Frederique and she is my 2,5 week old niece. The first tiny baby I`m an aunt to and she`s allll cute and sweet :) and I think I will spoil her a lot.
A while ago I had an awsome swpa with Carla and she helped me get some of teh lovely Metallic Crackle Glazes from China Glaze. I had been following them a bit on other peoples blogs, but the actually release took such a long time with my "regular" online shops and I reaallly wanted them. Didn`t want to miss out on these pretties!!
I picked out the following 3;
Haute Metal, a pinky metal
Latticed Lilac, purple/lilac toned metal
Oxidized Aqua, a blue/green metal
All crackles have a black Nfu Oh polish as "basecoat" and none have a tc. I looove them!! I think I love these metal ones even more then regular crackles. My colleague even wants me to get Platinum pives (and Crushed Candy) now ;)
the first flashes of photos apeared on 2 American bloggers posts and I already knew, whatever this was I want it! Days gone by...and still I hadn`t got a clue what it was and almost even forgot about it. And when you really start to forget things, boom, hurray it`s back again. I visited the local beautyshop, but ofc they wouldn't sell it, as they told me the Just Tinted collection would only be released in USA. So a little trip to Evulbay...yes again ;)...was inevitable.
Revlon - Just Tinted polishes. They looked amazing. Buildable colors, extreme see-through. I somewhat compare them to a blush on your cheek, dunno why?! They dry up somewhat matte, but using their special tc it looks almost like a sorbet like OPI's. ( I received the TC in a swap with Michy, as she knew these were on my lemminglist) From the 4 available colors 2 really got my attention; Mystical and Victorian...I ended up buying Mystical because it leans more to pinkish/purpleish...whilest Victorian is more of a coral.
This is 2 layers topped with Revlons special tc. See..veeerryy visible VNL, but the picture shows it more then I noticed it in rl. It dried quite quick, didn`t peel at all, there was slight tipwear after 2 days. Love it!!
Look at this beauty!! I received it in a swap with Rebecca. I think you can call this a eal good blurple, it actually looks more purpleish in the bottle, it dried up a bit darker then expected. Still it was a perfect polish to apply, 2 thin layers no streaks or runny at all. Dried pretty quick as well. AAaand worked amazing as base for stamping :) I wore it 1 day plain and simple, stamped some shoes on it the next day with a yellow and pink Konad stamping polish and wore it for 3 more days (with a tc). All you can see there is some slight tipwear, but it certainly gets a spot in my top10 awsome stuff!
As far as I know...but correct me if I`m wrong ofc, I`ve been nothing but polite and nice since I blog. I hardly rant, and when I do I never use abusive language..but now I just have to leave a little rant. If you`re not interested or disagree, feel free to comment or just ignore this post it`s all good. But for some reason I have to get it of my chest.
It`s all about a little comment on the previous blogentry..and well ,my comment to that one really :)
Roughly translation of that last comment would be ; "too bad its almost only other peoples' give-aways that are show"
First of all...I am trying to organise a giveaway of my own within the next couple of weeks, but Im waiting for some packages from USA and China to arrive...and Im working 50hr weeks atm, which give me limited time for shopping and exploring since I need my rest as well.
Second, I love to share my intest in certain bloggers by sharing info. I always link back to my swapbuddies so others can check them out as well and thats the same with giveaways which I have entered, its a nice way to spread the word a bit...but thats merely my opinion ofc.
Last but not least, as far as I know, Sisier, I have never invited you to come check my blog. If there is something you dont like about it...as now I suspect, why dont you just click my blog away and leave :) It made it only clear to me you're obviously only into free goodies and stuff, but pls dont enter mine as I dont really like that kind of people.
I`ve used these 5 gorgeous pinks from my latest swap with Michy. Pure Ice - First Love, Pink Ice, Lilac Mist, Watermelon Ice and Tease ( yes it has a slight blue shimmer in it!!). It was the first time I used this brand and I can tell you I love them! Watermelon Ice and Tease where a little more seethrough then the other 3, and tend to go a little strikey as well when you apply. But all polishes looked amazing after applying 3 thin layers., dried quite fast ( I did apply a fast drying tc after but that's due to habbit :S ) and I didn`t face any tipwear evenor peeling polish after 4 days!! Which is amazing for me, this really is my brand. I`ll be looking forward to use the glittersz as well.
I was trying to make nice photo of some recent bought goodies from Evulbay...when there was a weird creature trying to steal the goodies!!
What an evul cat!! Luckily my busband was around and caught it, cause the feisty little thing was unstoppable.
Evulbay has helped me score some nice goodies wooop! My very first Chrome polish by Sally Hansen - Violet Sapphire, Nail Prism - Pink Rose Diamond, Revlon Just Tinted - Mystical...yaaayyy and sweet Michy gave me their Just Tinted tc so I finally have a match couple.
I don`t know about you out there, but I looove scented/flavoured lip balms. I never count them, always seem to "loose" them in my bags as well. So when i was ordering my polishes at this boutique I picked out a couple of Lipsmackers nomnom. Cookies 'n Cream and Starburst - peaches & creme.
Now let me show you my massive pink swap with Michy :)
