Depend 7day The Language of Flowers

Hi there! I hope you’re ready to look at some new polishes today.
A few weeks ago I showed you Depend’s first spring collection of the year, called Eastern fusion. Today we are going to take a closer look at their 7day spring collection called The Language of Flowers.

img_9152Depend The Language of Flowers – Elegant jasmine

Elegant jasmine is a semi transparent light pink glitter polish with gold shimmer that covers in two coats.

img_9161Depend The Language of Flowers – Innocent daisy

Innocent daisy is a pealy shimmey polish that’s meant to be a topper. Here I’m wearing three coats. If you have shorter nails it could work on its own, but I’d rather wear it as the base for nail art or as a topper.

Beautiful orchid is a purple polish with silver holographic glitter that covers in two coats.

img_9162Depend The Language of Flowers – Healing peony

Healing peony is a pink and gold shimmer polish. The formula of this polish is a lot thicker that the others, but thanks to that the polish is really easy to get a good coverage with in jut a few coats. Here I’m wearing two coats.

Caring tulip is a pink creme polish that covers in two coats.

Is it to early to wish for spring? I hope not! But to make the wait a little easier here are some new spring shades from Depend. This is one of three new spring collections that they’ve recently released. Enjoy the swatches and dream away to brighter and sunnier days!

Here’s an eastern inspired nail art design I did using 505, 509 and 510 from the collection.

The Eastern fusion collection is out in stores now.

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.

img_5395

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.

img_5437Ellos – Pink orchid

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

img_5585

img_5586

img_5587

img_5588Ellos – Champagne chic chevy

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_5600

img_5601Ellos – Absolutely red

Absolutely red is a bright red creme polish that covers in two coats.

img_5610

img_5611-1

img_5613

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.

img_5615

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.

Yves Rocher nail polish

So this is pretty embarrassing, I got these polishes this summer and haven’t tried them until now. And that is like six months ago… oops! I was going to swatch them after I got them, but then my nails got really bad and sore, and when my nails felt better I had just forgotten about these polishes and here we are all of a sudden.

img_4814

This is the first time I’m trying polishes from Yves Rocher, and I have nothing to complain about. Well maybe the size of the bottles, 5 ml is not much polish. I prefer bigger bottles, but maybe that’s just me. The brush is wide and rounded and is really easy to work with. I have watched the polishes of one coat of base coat, and they are all without top coat. So, let’s take a look at the swatches!

img_4850

Magnolia is a sheer nude pink creme polish that covers in two coats.

Smith & Cult Fall 2016

Hi guys! Today I’m going to show you the fall news from Smith & Cult. I know it’s a little late since we’re already in the middle of December, but when I first got these one of the polishes were broken and it took some time to get a new one.

IMG_3502.jpg1972 – Darjeeling Darling – Flatte top coat

Out of these three polishes one of them, 1972, is a limited edition, the other two will be added to the ordinary range. The polishes are swatches over one coat of base coat and topped with one coat of Above it all from Smith & Cult (review of the top coat will be up later). With that said, let’s take a look at the swatches.

img_3509

img_3508

img_3510Smith & Cult – 1972

1972 is a rose gold metallic polish that covers in two coats. It’s a bit streaky so you want to do as few brush strokes as possible while applying it, though the top coat did smooth out the brush strokes a bit. Any imperfections on your nails will be very visible so I’d recommend using a ridge filler as a base for this polish.

img_3515

img_3514

img_3516Smith & Cult – Darjeeling Darling

Darjeeling Darling is a dark green creme polish that covers in two easy coats.

img_3526

img_3525Smith & Cult – Flatte top coat

Flatte top coat is a matte top coat. So far I can’t say that I’m impressed with this top coat. The first time I used it, it was a big lump on the brush. After removing the lump I painted one coat over my polish but nothing happened, it was still shiny. So I painted one more coat and it turned semi matte. The second time I used it (the picture above) it made the nails somewhat matte. It also left them very streaky and some parts of the nail turned completely white, it is visible on the tips and next to the cuticle on the ring finger. I will try it some more before I give it my final verdict, but so far I’m not a big fan.

My favorite out of these three is without doubt Darjeeling Darling!

Depend O2 Rough Glitter

Just in time for Christmas Depend releases two nail polish collections that are perfect for the festivities. The first collection is called Rough Glitter and it consists of six polishes in the O2 formula. The polishes are textured (as the name applies) and they can be worn with or without top coat, depending on if you want a matte or a glossy finish.

I have swatched the polishes with and without top coat (I used one coat of Gel setter from Essie).

img_1937

I really like this collection but I have a confession to make. I love the look of textured polishes but I hate wearing them. I mostly wear dresses and tights and textured polishes and tights don’t go well together.

img_1938

My favorites are Mr Snowman (the gold) and Frosty star (the green).
