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.

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!

20180505_163921000_iOS

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.

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.

BeautyBigbang Chameleon flakie polishes

Hey everyone! Sorry it’s been so quiet here on the blog! I’m just super busy with work right now and don’t have as much time for nails as I wish I had. Anyway, a few weeks ago I received a big parcel with a bunch of polishes from BeautyBigbang and today I’ll be showing you their flakie chameleon polishes. Hopefully I can show you the other polishes soon.

The last polish is ‘010’ that shifts from yellow to green. Here I’m wearing three coats plus top coat.

I applied these polishes over “bare” nails, but you can also apply them over a black base for a more scattered look. I think I prefer them like this, because they glow so beautifully on their own!

The polishes are available in a set of five (you can find it here) or individually. You can use my code ‘HANNA’ for 10% off your order on www.beautybigbang.com.

Cienna Rose Beauty

In the end of November when I visited London I got an exciting parcel from Cienna Rose delivered to the hotel. The polishes came in a beautiful box which feel very luxurious and the bottles have a very cute and unique design.
The rounded top of the brush is a bit different, but I had no problem applying the polish with it (and it’s also rubberized so you get a good grip while painting).

Cienna Rose is a new U.K. based indie brand that launched in the end of November. Their polishes are 6 free (free from formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, DBP, toluene and paraben) and are enriched with Vitamin E, Pro Vitamin B5 and Lemongrass oil.

Let’s look at the swatches of the five polishes that I received. They all have good formulas and they were very easy to apply.

Born Pretty Store Chameleon chrome pigment powder

By now you all probably know that I love my chrome powders, so when I saw that Born Pretty store also has one I had to give it a try. It is much cheaper than most chrome powders, the one I tried is $4.29 for 0,5g where’s powders from most other brands are around $20 for 1g. Since this powder is so much cheaper I was expecting the application to be a bit more difficult compared to the more expensive ones, but that was not the case. This one was actually really easy to apply, and it looks amazing!

IMG_2115

I used the powder with regular nail polish, which works great. Just remember that you need to use a water based top coat not to ruin the chrome finish. I’m so happy that you can get this beautiful chrome finish without using gel polish!

IMG_2121

This powder was sent to me from Born Pretty Store to review (you can find it here), the shade I got is called GRB20. After trying the powder I had to order a few more shades!

Chameleon flakes from BeautyBigBang

Hi guys, today I have some flakes from BeautyBigBang to show you!
A few weeks ago I was asked if I wanted to try some of their products and I said yes. The Chameleon flakes caught my eye, so I chose to try three of their colors.

IMG_1502

The Chameleon flakes are on sale right now for $2.99 (original price $5.99) and you can find them here. Each box contains 0,2 g, and they’re available in twelve different shades.

As you see in the picture above each box of flakes comes with a double sided eye shadow applicator. To apply the flakes you can either use the applicator they come with, your finger, a fan brush or another type of brush.

To get the flakes to really pop and get the most colorful result I’ve applied them over two coats of black nail polish, and they’re topped with a quick dry glossy top coat.

IMG_1492

First out are these gorgeous blue to purple shifting flakes called J2443-2A. In some lights they even shift a little bit to green, which you can see on my ring finger in the first picture.

IMG_1495

IMG_1505

Next up are these purple to green shifting flakes called J2443-3A. Out of the three flakes I got, I think these are my favorites!

IMG_1509

IMG_1512

 

IMG_1515

And the last flakes I got are these orange to green shifting flakes called J2443-4A. These flakes look like there’re on fire!

IMG_1518

IMG_1521

 

IMG_1486

I also tried the flakes over white, and even tough the color shifting isn’t as obvious as over black, I’m totally in love with the result! I think my favorite over white has to be J2443-3A.

IMG_1489

From left to right I’m wearing: 2A, 3A and 4A.

The flakes were really easy to apply and the result is stunning! They shift beautifully in different lights and you wont be able to take your eyes off your nails with the flakes on them.

The application can be a little messy, also be careful when you open the box otherwise you’ll have flakes everywhere. Some scotch tape is really hand to pick up excess flakes around your nails or on your working space. You can also rinse off the flakes on you skin with some water after you’ve applied your top coat.

Depend 7day Neon attitude

A little over a week ago I got Depend’s new Neon attitude collection! The collection consists of seven neon polishes in their 7day formula. Some of the polishes are so neon that my camera barely could handle it!

To make the polishes pop I swatched them all over a white base. All polishes dry matte, so on my swatches I’ve added a glossy top coat to make them shiny and bright!
