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.
So human is described as a milky almond polish and it covers in two coats.
Almost naked is described as a cappuccino creme polish and it covers in two coats.
Pretending pink is described as a creamy pink polish and it covers in two coats.
Looking strong is described as a deep dark red polish and it covers in two coats.
Berries on ice is described as a raspberry red polish and it covers in two coats.
Alluring Brown is described as a earthy cocoa brown polish and it covers in two coats.
Fragile is described as slate grey polish and it covers in two coats.
Kind of blue is described as a dark teal polish and it covers in two coats.
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.
What’s your favorite shade from this collection?
Recently Ana (@blackqueennailsdesign) released her own collaboration stamping plate with Bundle Monster. The plate is gorgeous, and as you may already know I love floral nail designs so this plate is just in my taste!
Bundle Monster + Black Queen Nails Design BM-XL221
Let’s take a look at the designs I have created with this stamping plate so far.
For this design I made a purple to white gradient and on top of the gradient I reverse stamped these cute flowers. For the stamping I used Bundle Monsters black stamping polish Straight up black, and then I filled in the flowers with two holographic polishes.
I really loved wearing this design and I was a bit sad when it was time to remove it.
For my second design using this plate I wanted to incorporate one of the beautiful girls. I started with a neutral base and stamped the girl and red flowers over it.
I already think that this plate is going to be one of my go to plates for floral nail designs, as this plate has so many beautiful to choose from.
Stamping plate and stamping polish used for these designs are available on www.bundlemonter.com.
Today we’re going to take a closer look at Bundle Monsters Botanicals collection. The collection consists of ten plates and so far I have used four of the plates to create three designs. I can’t wait for fall to arrive so I can use the leaf images on these plates to create gorgeous fall leaves designs.
For this bright hibiscus design I used Restless Dahlia as my base and stamped the hibiscus flowers using BM-S324 stamping plate and black stamping polish Straight up black, I filled in the flowers using Rose garden, Gobi you and Empire club.
For these succulent nails I used BM-S326, BM-S327 and black stamping polish Straight up black.
I would’ve loved to have this plate in the spring, because I know I would’ve made more than one tulip design then. But who says you can only enjoy tulips in the spring!? I think they’re beautiful flowers and should be enjoyed all year. To create this design I used BM-S325 and black stamping polish Straight up black.

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.
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!
White out is a white creme polish that covers in just one coat!
Not invited is a neon blue creme polish, here I’m wearing one coat over a white base.
Its 12 PM somewhere is a neon purple creme polish, here I’m wearing two coats over a white base.
Strictly bikini is a neon orange creme polish, here I’m wearing one coat over a white base.
Aaaah, now isn’t this a nice bright summery collage! Which polish is your favorite? I love them all and I’m especially impressed with White out since it’s the perfect white polish!
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.
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.
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.
Ghosted is a light grey creme polish that covers in one coat. As you can see it’s stamps really week both over black and white.
Coraline is a light coral creme polish that covers in one coat. It covers really well over both black and white, but over black it’s not as bright as it is over white or on its own.
Tickled is a pink creme polish that covers in one coat. It stamps well over both black and white.
Smokey is a dark grey creme polish that covers in one coat. It’s stamps really well over both black and white.
Dazed is a rose gold metallic polish that covers in one coat. It stamps well both over black and white, but over black it’s turns out more silver compared to it over white or on its own.
Liquid gold is a gold metallic polish that covers in one coat. It stamps very well both over black and white.
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?
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.
Pictures borrowed from Nails Inc’s instagram page
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.
Get out of my space is a gorgeous linear purple holographic polish. This is the polish that unfortunately didn’t make it here in one piece.
Molten my day is a raspberry pink linear holographic polish.
Cosmic cutie is a light pink linear holographic polish.
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!

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.
