Depend 7day Force of nature

Depend have quite a few collections coming out this fall, I’ve already showed you the Holo Fantasy collection and now it’s time for their 7day collection called Force of nature. I got eight polishes to review (out of 14 polishes) from this collection.

Mother nature is a light brown creme polish that covers in two coats.

img_6751Depend Force of nature – 7096 Wild berries

img_6757Depend Force of nature – 7099 Falling leaves

img_6761Depend Force of nature – 7102 Nature’s lullaby

Nature’s lullaby is a gold,  copper and black glitter polish in a clear base that covers in three coats. The polish in my bottle was almost all dried up, the bottle neck was really messy, so I think that’s why. I tried to save it by pouring a LOT of Seche restore into the bottle and mix it together. It worked but the formulas is not good.

img_6753Depend Force of nature – 7103 Reflecting pond

Reflecting pond is a blue metallic polish that covers in two coats.

Depend O2 Holo Fantasy

Later this fall Depend will release a collection with eight holographic polishes and it’s so beautiful.

IMG_4407

Of course I have swatches of them to show you.

IMG_4475

Holo Fantasy collection on a rainy day. Even without sunlight and visible holo they are still so beautiful.

IMG_4754 (1)

Holo Fantasy collection in direct sunlight, hello holo!

IMG_5327Holo Fantasy – 5036 Sweet elves

Sweet elves is a orange polish that covers in three coats. Two coats could work too, but I think I had a little too much VNL. Unfortunately the holo isn’t very visible in this polish, but it’s still pretty.

IMG_5330Holo Fantasy – 5037 Forbidden witchcraft

Forbidden whichcraft is a orange polish that is very similar to Sweet elves in many ways: color, formula and not so much holo. I’m using three coats in this picture.

IMG_5334Holo Fantasy – 5038 Pegasus girl

Pegasus girl is a cerice polish that covers in two coats. I really like this color and I thought that this would be my favorite from the collection. However the holo is not very visible, so I guess I was hoping for a little more for it to be a favorite.

IMG_5337Holo Fantasy – 5039 Dungeons & goddesses

Dungeons & goddesses is a plum polish that covers in two coats. Finally we get to see some holo!

IMG_5407Holo Fantasy – 5040 Unicorn dream

Unicorn dream is a purple polish that covers in two coats. Loot at that holo, so pretty! This is definitely my favorite from the collection.

IMG_5410Holo Fantasy – 5041 Dragon flirt

Dragon flirt is a dark green polish that covers in two coats.

IMG_5414Holo Fantasy – 5042 Lady wizard

Lady wizard is a black polish that’s almost is a one coater, I used two coats here. It’s really stunning, and this one is a favorite too!

IMG_5417Holo Fantasy – 5043 Night potion

Night potion is a grey polish that covers in two coats. In the bottle it looks very similar to Lady wizard, but on the nails you see that they are different.

IMG_5422

This collection is limited edition, it will be released week 39 and the polishes will retail for 29kr. Make sure to get your hands on it if you have the chance because these polishes are really beautiful! I think I might have to get me some spares since the bottles are so small! The only thing I think could’ve been better is a bigger variety of colors, two of the polishes are really similar. And I wish that they all had more holo in them, I think the first three polishes are beautiful, but they are not really holo.

Essie Starry Starry Night vs Depend O2 428

Earlier this year Essie re-released Starry Starry Night and a lot of people were not too happy with the new version of the polish. I think that I may have found a dupe for the original version of the polish, O2 428 from Depend! Though I only have the new version of Starry Starry Night, so that’s the only one I can compare it too.

img_3412Essie Starry Starry Night & Depend O2 428

img_3415

Here you see two coats of both polishes over one coat of base coat. The formula of the two polishes are pretty similar and they are a little bit thick. On the first coat they look pretty awful and like they will new a few more coats to be opaque, but the second coat covers really well!

img_3416

The only difference between these two polishes are the size of the glitters, so which one you’ll like the most depends on what you prefer. But don’t you agree with me, O2 428 from Depend looks like a good substitute for the original Starry Starry Night.

Depend Decoration tools

The first things I decided to try from the box filled with nail art things from Depend was the decoration tools kit. More precisely the detail brush and the dotting tool from the kit.

This kit actually contains four brushes but I have only tested the two so far. The detail brush is a bit shorter than what I’m used to with my other brushes, but it’s still easy to hold and to work with. The dotting tool has two sides, one with a bigger end and one with a smaller end, they turned out to be the perfect sizes for making my mani!

img_2565

All the things I used for this manicure: Depend O2 486 (blue), Depend 031 (white), Depend O2 369 (cerise), Depend O2 488 (pink), Depend O2 489 (green), Depend dotting tool & detail brush.

The small end of the dotting tool turned out to be the perfect size for the dotticure! And I used the bigger end to make the first step of the roses. To paint the pink in the roses I used the detail brush, and I think it was just the right size to make small details and lines. It works for a little bigger detail too, like the leaves.

img_2724

This is how my manicure turned out using the tools and polishes from Depend. I wanted to do a mani that was very me since I thought that would be the best way to test the new tools and I’m really happy with the result!

The Decorations tools kit is available in stores now and retail for 149 kr.

OPI Show us your tips! vs Depend O2 485

The other day I got some summer news from Depend. One of the polishes caught my attention a little more than the others. I thought it was pretty similar to another polish released earlier this year. Let’s see if I was right or not.

So, I’m comparing OPI’s Show us your tips! from the New Orleans spring collection, and Depend O2 485, from this year’s summer collection called Colour POP.

img_9951-1OPI Show us your tips! & Depend O2 485

img_9957

Here you see three coats of both polishes over one coat of base coat. The formula of the two polishes are pretty similar. They are a bit thin and they need a few coats to get opaque.

img_9958

Comparing the two bottles next to each other you can see a little bit more of a color shift in the shimmer in the polish from Depend, but on the nails it is unfortunately not visible.

So if you didn’t get a chance to pick up Show us your tips! when it was released (and want to save some money) you could get 485 from Depend, because they are dupes.

Depend O2 The Great Desert

Last weekend I was in London and when I got home I was greeted with a package containing news from Depend. Eight new polishes with matte finish from their O2 series inspired by the desert.

Förra helgen var jag i London och när jag kom hem möttes jag av ett paket med nyheter från Depend. Åtta nya lack med matt finish från deras O2-serie inspirerade av öken.

Let’s look at the swatches!

Låt oss titta på swatcherna!

 Without top coat (matte)

 With topcoat (shiny)

Depend The Great Desert – 4088 Lovely Mirage

First out is a white polish called Lovely Mirage. This polish needs three coats to be opaque. The formula is a bit on the thin side, but it was still pretty easy to apply.

Först ut är ett kritvitt lack som heter Lovely Mirage. Detta lack kräver tre lager för att bli heltäckande. Formulan är ganska tunn, men det är ändå ganska lätt att applicera.

This light blue polish called Cool Oasis is the one I was most excited to try, and I really like it! I used two coats to get full coverage, and it was easy to apply.

 Without top coat (matte)

 With top coat (shiny)

Depend The Great Desert – 4091 Camel Caravan

Camel Caravan is my least favorite in this collection. The color reminds me of band aids, and it did not go well with my skin tone. But it was easy to apply and I needed two coats.

Camel Caravan är det lack som jag gillar minst ifrån kollektionen. Färgen påminner om plåster och det passade inte med med min hudton. Men det var lätt att applicera och det räckte med två lager.

 Without top coat (matte)

 With top coat (shiny)

Depend The Great Desert – 4092 Hot Desert

Hot Desert is a beautiful pale pink polish. I really like this one! The formula is pretty thin and I needed three coats for full opacity.

Hot Desert är ett vackert ljust rosa lack. Jag gillar verkligen detta! Lacket är ganska tunnt så jag behövde måla tre lager för att få det heltäckande.

 Without top coat (matte)

 With top coat (shiny)

Depend The Great Desert – 4093 Sahara Queen

Sahara Queen is one of three polishes from this collection with shimmer. This polish is so beautiful and it is my favorite from the collection! The formula is ok, but it was still a bit tricky to apply. I needed three coats for full coverage.

Sahara Queen är ett av tre lack från kollektionen med skimmer. Det här lacket är så fint och det är min favorit från kollektionen! Formulan är okej, men det var ändå lite svårt att applicera. Jag behövde tre lager för att få det heltäckande.

 Without top coat (matte)

 With top coat (shiny)

Depend The Great Desert – 4094 Shade Seeker

Shade Seeker is a grey/purple polish with blue shimmer which covers really good in just one coat. But I ended up wearing two coats to get it even. The color isn’t that spring-y to me, but it is still a very beautiful polish!

Shade Seeker är ett grå-lila lack med blått skimmer och det täcker väldigt bra med bara ett lager. Men jag målade två lager för att få det jämnt och helt täckande. Färgen är inte så vårig enligt mig, men det är ändå ett väldigt fint lack!

 Without top coat (matte)

 With top coat (shiny)

Depend The Great Desert – 4095 Dust Storm

Dust storm is the last polish of the collection and this one is also with shimmer. It’s a grey/brown polish with blue shimmer which covers good in two coats.

Det här är en limited edition kollektion och lacken finns i butik från vecka 15 och kostar 29 kr/st.

Depend O2 Five shades of sorbet

Yesterday I got home to a lovely package from Depend containing their new spring polishes. The collection consists of five pastel polishes with matte finish.

Igår när jag kom hem hade jag fått ett fint paket från Depend som innehöll deras nya vår-lack. Kollektionen består av fem lack i pastellfärger med sidenmatt finish.

img_6164

All polishes have a wide rounded brush (think Essie) and I’m not really used to that kind of brush, so it was a bit tricky to apply the polish at first. The reason I don’t like this type of brush is because they tend to be to wide for my smallest nails. Disregarding my pinky nail the application went just fine!

Alla lack har en bred rundad pensel (tänk Essie) och jag är inte van vid den typen av borste, så det var lite svårt att måla med den till att börja med. Anledningen till att jag inte gillar denna typen av borste så mycket är för att de brukar vara för breda för mina minsta naglar. Bortser man bara från min lillfingernagel så gick appliceringen bra!

img_6196

The polishes dries semi matte, so I’ve swatched them just as they are and with the matte top coat that was included.

Lacken torkat halvmatta, så jag har swatchat dem som de är och med det medföljade matta topplacket.

4083 Grape sorbet

Talk about falling in love, this polish is so pretty! It’s a very light and pale polish that I want to wear on my nails this spring. The formula is just fine and I needed two coats for full coverage.

Snacka om att bli totalt förälskad, det här lacket är så fint! Ett väldigt ljust och blekt lila lack som jag vill ha på naglarna i vår. Formulan är helt okej och det behövdes två lager för att få det att täcka helt.

4084 Mint sorbet + Matte top coat

4084 Mint sorbet

There is something about mint polish and spring that feels just right! The formula is quite thin and I needed tree coats for full coverage.

Det är något med mintfärgat lack och vår som känns helt rätt! Formulan är ganska tunn så jag behövde måla med tre lager för att få lacket att täcka helt.

I like this polish very much too, it is almost just as pretty as my favorite from this collection, Grape sorbet. It’s a beautiful pale apricot polish. The formula is good and I needed two coats for full coverage.

Jag gillar det här lacket väldigt mycket också, det är nästan lika fint som min favorit från den här kollektionen, Grape sorbet, Det är ett väldigt fint blekt aprikosfärgat lack. Formulan är bra och det behövdes två lager för att få det heltäckande.

4086 Pear sorbet

This polish looks just like pear ice-cream, and it almost makes me wanna taste my nails. The formula is pretty thin with this polish, so you’ll need three coats for full coverage.

Det här lacket ser ut som päronglass, och det får mig nästan att vilja smaka på mina naglar. Formulan är ganska tunn, så de behövs tre lager för att få ett täckande resultat.

Depend O2 Mud mask

Now when it’s cold outside it’s important to remember to take care of your hands and nails. A product I love is this mud mask for nails from Depend.

Ever since this product was released I have used it once a week and I am already into my second one. You apply the mask on your nails and when the mask is dry (7-10 minutes) you massage it off with a cotton pad and then rinse with warm water. After just 10 minutes with this mask you can really see a difference on your nails! The nails are moisturized, the surface is much cleaner and in the long run the mask helps the nails to get strong and healthy.

IMG_4996

This mask is perfect now during winter when it’s cold and your nails need a little extra love and care!

Have you tried this nail mask?
