OPI Peru

This year’s fall collection from OPI takes its inspiration from Peru. My favorite collections from OPI are their spring and fall collections because they’re always inspired by a place, (this year’s spring collection was inspired by Lisbon) which gives so much inspiration for nail art designs. The Peru collection consists of 12 creme polishes and at a first glance it may not look like a typical fall collection becasue there are many lighter and colorful shades. After swatching the collection I have changed my mind – the collection is colorful but the shades are muted not bright. And anyway who say you should only wear darker shades in the fall?

I usually don’t include OPI’s press pictures of the collection in my blog posts, but this time I had to! I love the cozy vibe they’re giving and they make me like the collection so much more!

I got the polishes in the Infinite Shine formula and this is the first time I’m trying a whole collection in this formula.
Infinite Shine is a 3-step system which will last up to 11 days of wear and the polishes dries super shiny! The formula of the Infinite Shine polishes is really good and they made the application super easy.

Today we’re going to take a look at Kinetics fall collection called Fragile, that is released today! After a long summer of bright polishes I’m really looking forward to wearing darker and muted shades on my nails.

This is the first time I’m trying Kinetics polishes and I’m very impressed! They all cover really well in few coats and they have a really good rounded brush that makes the application super easy.

My favorites shades from this collection are Pretending pink, Berries on ice and Kind of blue. One thing I love about fall polishes is the contrast of the dark shades against my pale skin.

Nails Inc Bright ambition

Today were taking a closer look at Nails Inc’s Bright ambition collection. The collection consists of four polishes, three neons and one white. The polishes arrived just in time for my summer vacation, and they are p e r f e c t for this beautiful weather we’re having.

20180721_145034882_iOS

My swatches are painted over one coat of base coat (no top coat), and I applied the neons over one coat of White out to make them pop!

20180721_154530771_iOS

I also did some nail art with the neons from this collection, and it turned out so bright you might need sunglasses to look at it! To get the cells I used a special polish called Spot it from Dance Legend.

Twinkled T Desert sunset

Recently Twinkled T released their latest stamping polish collection called Desert sunset.

When their polishes finally was able for purchase from an European distributor they had released 12 shades and I was in need of some new stamping polishes so I bought them all! I knew it was a bit of a risk buying that many at once without testing a few at first, but I had read great reviews. They were as good as I was hoping and I’ve loved Twinkled T’s stamping polishes since the first time I tried them!

With that said, I’m always excited when they release new shades! The new Desert sunset collection consist of four creme and two metallic polishes.

20180722_155150489_iOS

On my pictures I’ve swatches the polishes on their own and stamped over black and white. I used Twinkled T’s stainless steel stamper and UberChic Beauty’s Got chevron? 2 plate for the stamping.

20180722_154147020_iOS

The polishes from the Desert sunset collection is just as good as their other stamping polishes (which is just what I expected!). All six polishes are beautiful but if I had to pick favorites I would chose Coraline and Tickled, they look just as good stamped as on their own!

Have you tried any of Twinkled T’s stamping polishes?

Nails Inc Holler-graphic

Today I’ll be sharing swatches of Nails Inc’s Holler-graphic collection. The collection consists of four gorgeous linear holographic polishes.
Unfortunately one of the polishes got damaged in transit. Luckily I was able to save most of the polish by pouring it into an empty nail polish bottle. If you’re wondering why the swatches look a little bit different than usual, that’s the reason. I couldn’t take a bottle picture with Get out of my space, but I didn’t want to exclude it from the swatches either.

On my swatches I’m wearing two coats of each shade plus top coat. They all covered really well in just one coat, but as usual I prefer applying two coats to get an even and smooth result.

Cosmic queen is a turquoise linear holographic polish.

At a first glance I was sure that Get out of my space was going to be my favorite polish out of the four (and thats why I got extra sad to see it’s bottle broken), but after swatching them all I have a really hard time picking a favorite. They’re all gorgeous and they’re super easy to apply. If I had to pick one I’d probably chose Molten my day because it’s so bright and a perfect shade for summer!

Which polish is your favorite?

 

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!

essie-enamel-midsummercollection-lineup-lifestyle-16x9

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…

20180621_181858033_iOS

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).

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.

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!
