Beauty by Ellos

A couple of days ago I posted swatches of some polishes from Yves Rocher and I got these polished from Ellos at the same time, so it was about time that I tried them. I think that Ellos has had their own beauty line for about a year now and these are the first products that I have tried.

All swatches are painted over one coat of base coat and topped with one coat of Plumping top coat or one coat of Matte top coat, both from Ellos.

Pink orchid is a pink creme polish that covers in two coats. I love the way this polish looks matte!

Champagne chic chevy is a bronze metallic polish that covers in two coats. It’s pretty streaky and on the nails it looks like a nude metallic shade. Not a big fan of this polish.

img_5614-1Ellos – Red red wine

Red red wine is a dark red creme polish that covers in two coats. This is probably my favorite shade out of these four and I think it looks amazing both glossy and matte.

The polishes retail for 39 kr, which is a really good price since they contain 11 ml. They have a thin brush, but it’s still pretty easy to work with. I have to say that I’m most impressed with the top coats. The plumping top coat feels a bit thicker than a regular top coat, but it’s still easy to apply. It gives a lovely shine and it dries pretty fast. I really like the matte top coat too, I’ve tried matte top coats that cost way more money than this one that are way worse.

Depend Perfect eye

Last Friday I was in Stockholm for Depend’s press event Perfect eye. Before the event I met up with Hanna to take some nail pictures, because we had done matching manis for the occasion.
