Painted Polish Haute Parisian Nights 

I think it’s safe to say that I’ve become obsessed with holo and indie nail polish (preferably a combination of the two). Today I’m showing you my first polish from indie brand Painted Polish, called Haute Parisian Night.

Haute Parisian Nights is a hot pink ultra holographic polish that covers in two super easy coats. It is a linear holo with silver holographic glitter, and I guess that’s what makes it an ultra holo! Anyway I freaking love this polish! It is seriously stunning, I could not stop staring at my nails while wearing it. In the sun you can really see that it is a linear holo, and when the nails are not in direct sunlight you really see the holographic glitters in it.

I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

I really, really didn’t want to remove it so I decided to use it as the base for nail art (not that it needs any nail art on top of it). To fit in with the month of February I chose to stamp a rose design using stamping plate BP-73 from Born Pretty Store and stamping polish White Knight from MoYou London.

I can’t wait to get my hands on some more ultra holos from Painted Polish!

Glam Polish Luscious

Hi guys! Today I’m showing you my very first polish from Glam Polish. I bought it during Hypnotic Polish’s Black Friday sale.

img_4830Glam Polish – Luscious

Luscious is a gorgeous linear magenta holographic polish that has a great formula. It covers really good in one coat, but I used two coats to get an even and smooth finish. The brush is long and thin, but still really easy to control during the application, unlike many other long and thin brushes (like China Glaze).

I’m pretty sure that this will not be my last polish from Glam Polish!

Cirque Colors Madder

While I wait for one of my nails to grow out (because I can’t file the other nails that short, and I want them all the same length) I’m showing some swatches that I have saved on my phone.

Today we’re taking a closer look at Madder from Cirque Colors. I used this polish not too long ago for one of my Christmas manis, which you can find here.

Madder is a red linear holo that covers in two coats and is easy to apply. It is stunning, as all the other polishes from Cirque that I’ve tried. I must say that I really, really like this brand.

December 17 | Santa french manicure

Happy Saturday everybody! Can you believe that it’s only one week left until Christmas eve!? That also means thats it’s only two weeks left of this year, crazy!

For day 17 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I’ve made a French manicure with a twist, it’s Santa inspired.

For this manicure I used Nail Envy Bubble bath and Alpine snow from OPI along with Madder from Cirque Colors. This design is really easy to make, all you need is a dotting tool.

Hope you like these nails!

Cupcake Polish Berry Good Looking

After seeing Anne wear this polish the other day I felt like I hade to wear it too!

img_0845Cupcake Polish – Berry Good Looking

Berry good looking is a purple linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. It dries a bit dull so a glossy top coat is a must to show off the beautiful holo!
The first time I used it the formula was a bit thick and it dried quick, so I had to to work fast to get a smooth application. When I read about this polish on Annes blog she said that her polish was a bit runny, so I thought that maybe the formula of mu polish was wrong. So I used a few drops of thinner and the formula turned out so much better!

This is my first Cupcake Polish and it’s so pretty that I think it will be hard to beat!

 

Cirque Colors

I have recently gotten really into indie polishes. It all started with piCture pOlish this summer, and my latest discovery is Cirque Colors.

Cirque Colors is a New York-based indie brand specializing in hand-blended nail lacquers. Their nail polish is 3-free, which means it does not contain toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). And in true indie style all their products are hand-mixed in small batches and hand-poured individually.

Let’s take a look at my first three, but definitely not last, polishes from Cirque Colors.

img_0599Cirque – Xochitl

Xochitl is a beautiful purple linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. I don’t know why but I’m really drawn to purple holos and this one is no exception. I actually think this one could be my absolute favorite purple holo!

img_0603Cirque – Bejeweled

Bejeweled is a blue linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. OMG just look at this blue color, isn’t it the prettiest you’ve seen!?

img_0608

img_0607Cirque – Framboise

Framboise is a raspberry pink linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. Wow, another stunning polish! This color is just so pretty and girly.

You guys I’m really impressed with these polishes, they are super easy to apply and have great formulas! I don’t think I can decide which shade I like the most, it depends on what mood I’m in for the moment.

Have you tried any polishes from Cirque Colors?

H&M Beauty

Last fall H&M released their new beauty line and I have tried a few of their polishes.

img_9213H&M – Space Race

Space Race is a silver linear holo polish that covers in two coats. It dries a bit dull, so make sure to add a glossy top coat.

img_9214H&M – Yolo Holo

Yolo Holo is a very sheer pearl polish, here I’m wearing three coats. It is best suited as a topper. I think the name is a bit confusing since this is not a holo polish.

img_9215H&M – Fairie Holo

Fairie Holo is a gold holo glitter polish. My nails looked like disco ball with this polish on. Here I’m wearing three sponged coats over one painted coat.

img_9216H&M – Undersea

Undersea is a blue metallic polish that covers in two coats.

img_9217H&M – Parisienne

Parisienne is a bright red polish, here I’m wearing three coats and as you can see I still have a bit of VNL.

Over all I’m pretty impressed with the polishes from H&M. They have a brush that is easy to work with and the formula was good. And they are pretty cheap, 49 kr each (though I got a few on sale for 10kr each!!!). Out of these polishes Space Race is definitely my favorite!

Have you tried any polishes from H&M? Did you like them?
