Maniology Holly Jolly stamping starter kit

Get your nails ready for the festive season with Maniology’s Holly Jolly stamping starter kit. The kit includes two festive stamping plates, stamping polishes Confetti and Frosty and limited edition Holiday Monocle stamper & scraper.

I really like the products in this kit, the monocle stamper is my go-to stamper. It’s see-through, it’s short (which makes it perfect when coloring in images when reverse stamping), it’s squishy and always picks up images perfectly!


How cute are the animal ornaments on M078? I had such a hard time choosing which ones to use for my design. And M079 has everything you need for your New Year’s Eve mani!

CND ‘Yes I Do’ Bridal collection

Hello everyone, long time, no see! Today I’ll be showing you CND’s new bridal collection called Yes I do. As with most bridal collection, this one consists of sheer white and pink toned polishes that are very wedding appropriate.



Bouquet is a sheer nude polish with white and pink undertones. Here I’m wearing three coats.



White wedding is a milky white polish. Here I’m wearing three coats.



Veiled is a nude pink polish. Here I’m wearing three coats.



Forever yours is a pink polish. Here I’m wearing three coats.


These types of shades are not really my go to types of shades, but for a wedding I think they’re perfect! I also think that the two nude pink polishes will make a great nude base for nail art. In fact I’ve already used Veiled for just that.

What do you think of this collection? Do you like sheer nude polishes?

Essie Midsummer

Today we celebrate Midsummer’s eve in Sweden so sharing swatches of Essie’s Midsummer collection is perfect for today. I haven’t bought any Essie polishes in a long time (mostly because they’re pretty expense in Sweden) but since this collection is dedicated to Midsummer (which is a Swedish tradition) plus I found them for a really good price, I had to get them!


If you’re not familiar with midsummer it’s a Swedish/Nordic tradition where we celebrate the longest day of the year. In Sweden we dance around a Maypole, eat early potatoes and pickled herring (which I don’t like) and drink schnapps (not a big fan of that either) and of course the dessert is strawberries with cream or ice-cream.
According to the tradition girls should pick seven flowers and put under their pillow, and during the night they’ll dream about their future husband…


June in bloom is a pink polish with silver shimmer. Here I’m wearing two coats plus top coat.


SKÅL! is a green creme polish that covers on two coats. (Skål is Swedish for cheers)


Midnight sun is a blue creme polish that covers in two coats.


All night long is a purple polish with blue shimmer that covers in two coats.


Dressed to the maxi is a raspberry pink polish with pink shimmer that covers in two coats.


Dusk till dawn is a wine red creme polish with purple undertones that covers in two coats.


My favorites from this collection are SKÅL!, Midnight sun and All night long. Nail art wise SKÅL! will be perfect for floral manis, and I think it’ll come to great use this summer.

Sadly, I think this collection is only available in the Nordic countries and Germany.

What’s your favorite shade from this collection?

Zoya Sunshine

Hello everybody! Right now the weather isn’t that good, it’s cold and raining, and I miss the lovely summer weather we had in May. Just the other day I was lucky to receive Zoya’s summer collection called Sunshine! At least now my nails are ready for summer when the nice weather returns again (the forecast says it’ll get warmer next week, yay!).


The Sunshine collection consists of 8 creme polishes, two shimmer polishes and two glitter/shimmer toppers.

All Zoya lacquers are 10 free and cruelty free (meaning they don’t test on animals).


Jack is a nude beige creme polish that covers in two coats.


Nahla is a gold shimmer topper with gold glitter. Here I’m wearing one coat over Jack.


Minnie is a pink coral creme polish that covers in two coats.


Clementine is a coral pink polish with orange shimmer that covers in two coats.


Missy is a bubblegum pink creme polish that covers in two coats.


Sandy is a blue toned pink creme polish that covers in two coats.


Delia is a purple creme polish that covers in two coats.


Saldana is a blue iridescent-holo topper with  pink ad blue colored glitter. Here I’m wearing one coat over Delia.


Ellie is a raspberry colored creme polish that covers in two coats.


Virginia is a coral red creme polish that covers in two coats.


Karen is a classic red creme polish that covers in two coats.


Marigold is a coral red polish with gold shimmer that covers in two coats.


I really like pink, reds and corals so this collection is just in my taste! I already know that for my next pedi I will use Ellie.

What do you think of this collection? Are there any shades that you must have?
If I could only pick a couple I would choose the two toppers, Nahla and Saldana, just because they’re so unique, and I bet they would look amazing over many different shades!

Cienna Rose Summer collection 2018

Hi everyone, sorry I haven’t been updating much here lately. I’m hoping to post a little bit more regularly from now on.

So, last week I received Cienna Rose‘s new summer collection, which consist of five beautiful shades. If you didn’t know Cienna Rose is a UK based indie brand, and their lacquers are 12 free, vegan and cruelty free. On top of that they’re enriched with Vitamin E, Pro Vitamin B5 and Lemongrass oil, which gives the lacquers a subtle and pleasant Lemongrass scent.

Lets take a look at the swatches of the summer collection:


Marshmallow is a nude pink crelly that covers in three coats.


Latte break is a light brown polish with gold shimmer that covers in two coats.


Shopping spree is a barbie pink creme polish that covers in two coats.


Snob is a fiery red polish with gold shimmer that covers in two coats.


It’s not me, it’s you is a turquoise green polish light blue glitter and gold micro glitter that covers in two coats. In this picture I’m wearing top coat too.

I think I have found a new favorite nude pink in Marshmallow, it covers pretty well for being such a sheer shade and nude pink makes a great base for nail art. Of course it looks beautiful on it’s own too!

You can pick up the summer collection here for £40, or get the lacquers individually for £9 each.

CND Boho spirit collection

Hi everyone! Today I’m going to show you CND’s newest collection called Boho spirit. The collection consists of four vibrant creme polishes that are inspired by the desert and its nomads with burned colors, ethnic patterns and henna tattoos.

The Vinylux polishes all have a built in base coat and there is a special Vinylux Weekly Top Coat to make the manicure last for 7 days. My swatches are painted on bare nails and finished with one coat of the Weekly Top Coat.


Offbeat is a raspberry red creme polish that covers in two coats.


Uninhibited is a peach creme polish that covers in three coats.


Vagabond is a light mustard yellow creme polish that covers in three coats.


Gypsy is a orange creme polish that covers in three coats.

Of course I did some nail art using these polishes, lets’s take a look at my designs:


For my first nail art design I used Vagabond and Gypsy to create a vertical gradient inspired by a design from the press material from this collection. I finished it off with some gold flakes and gold striping tape.



My next mani is also inspired by a design from the press material from this collection. I just couldn’t help myself, they did such a good job with the press material for this collection. I used Vagabond, GypsyUninhibited, Creme puff and Lady in black from OPI to create this design.


For my last design I used all four shades from this collection together with Spot it white and Spot it black from Dance Legend (to create the cells). I love using the Spot it polishes as they make everything look so much cooler. I really like them in combination with this collection, the result looks really fiery and awesome. To finish the design I added some gold charms to two of the nails.

What do you think of this collection? I think its perfect for summer and can’t wait to create more summery designs with it!


OPI Grease

Hi guys! Today I’ll show you swatches of OPI’s newest collection, Grease! To celebrate Grease’s 40th anniversary OPI is releasing a collection based on the iconic movie. The last time I saw the movie was probably when I was in middle school, so when I got the collection I had to re-watch it – and I still remembered the lyrics to the songs!


All my swatches are painted over one coat of base coat and I’m not wearing any top coat. Now let’s take a look at the swatches!


Don’t cry over spilled milkshakes is a vanilla colored creme polish that covers in two coats. Since I just watched the movie I’m a little bit disappointed that this polish is not pink, because the milkshake that was spilled in the film was in fact pink.


Met a boy cute as can be is a pale yellow creme polish that covers in three coats.


Frenchie likes to kiss? is a lavender polish with subtle purple shimmer that covers in there coats. Unfortunately the shimmer isn’t visible in this picture but it is on the nails, and it’s super pretty.


Hopelessly devoted to OPI is a peach creme polish that covers in two coats.


Pink ladies rule the school is a pink creme polish that covers in two coats.


Was it all just a dream? is a turquoise blue creme polish that covers in two coats.


You’re the shade that I want is a magenta colored creme polish that is a one coater! The formula of this polish is amazing, y´so it really is the shade that you’ll want. I’m wearing two coats here.


Summer lovin’ having a blast! is a bright orange creme polish that covers in two coats.



Teal me more, teal me more is a teal creme polish that is a one coater too! As always I’m wearing two coats.


Tell me about it stud is a red creme polish that covers in two coats. OPI really knows how to make red polish and this one is no exception!


Chills are multiplying! is a dark blue polish with shimmer that covers in two coats.


Danny & Sandy 4 ever! is a metallic grey polish with blue shimmer that covers in two coats.

Check out the video for live swatches!

So, what do you think of this collection? My favorites are Frenchie likes to kiss and Chills are multiplying!, I just love that shimmer!

One thing that I though was strange about this collection was the smell. The polishes doesn’t smell like OPI polishes usually do. I like the smell of nail polish but unfortunately I didn’t like the smell of the polishes from this collection. I don’t know if OPI has changed the formula or why they smell different but I hope this is just a one time thing.
