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.

I think this is a really lovely collection with many beautiful shades that are perfect for spring. My favorite polish from this collection is purple holographic Beautiful orchid.


Lastly I have a floral nail art design that I created using Elegant jasmine and Dramatic camellia from the collection.

Depend Eastern fusion

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!

The polish I was most surprised by is 511, I did not think I would like it at all actually. But once I got it on the nails I really liked it, the shimmer makes it so cute! And it’s a perfect nude shade.


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.


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_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_5601Ellos – Absolutely red

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




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.

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.


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_4849Yves Rocher – Magnolia

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


img_4851Yves Rocher – Menthe givrée

Menthe givrée is a mint green creme polish that covers in two coats.


img_4853Yves Rocher – Menthe à l’eau

Menthe á l’eau is a turquoise crelly that covers in two coats.


img_4855Yves Rocher – Citron

Citron is a yellow creme polish that covers in two coats.


img_4857Yves Rocher – Orange cosmos

Orange cosmos is an orange creme polish that covers in two coats.


img_4859Yves Rocher – Rouge flamboyant

Rouge flamboyant is a red creme polish that covers n two coats.


img_4861Yves Rocher – Or pailleté

Or pailleté is a gold glitter polish with silver hex glitter pieces that coves in two coats.


The polishes retail for 59 kr, and right now you can find a lot of these polishes on sale for 29 kr on Yves Rocher online shop.


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_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_3516Smith & Cult – Darjeeling Darling

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


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 7day Season Sparkle

Yesterday I showed you one of Depend’s new holiday collections Rough Glitter and today I’m showing you the second one. Season sparkle consists of eight glitter polishes in the 7day formula.


img_2317Depend Season Sparkle – Under the mistletoe

Under the mistletoe is a green glitter polish that covers in two coats.


img_2333Depend Season Sparkle – Gingerbread disaster

img_2325Depend Season Sparkle – Fill the stockings

Fill the stockings is a purple jelly polish with pink and blue glitter that covers in three coats.


img_2321Depend Season Sparkle – Santa wishes

Santa wishes is a red glitter polish that covers in two coats and it dries a little bit textured.


img_2306Depend Season Sparkle – Christmas wonderland

Christmas wonderland is a gold glitter polish that covers in two coats and it dries textured.

Holiday spirit is a silver metallic polish with silver glitter that covers in two coats.

The Nutcracker is a grey glitter polish with tiny holographic glitter that covers in two coats.


img_2337Depend Season Sparkle – Bedtime stories

Bedtime stories is a black glitter polish with tiny silver and holographic glitter that covers in two coats.


I really like this collection and I think that it’s perfect for the holidays! I’m sure I will use many of the polishes for Christmas themed nail art during the upcoming weeks. My absolute favorite from this collection is Under the mistletoe (the green).

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_1865Depend Rough Glitter – 5030 Mr Snowman

Mr Snowman is a gold textured polish that covers in 2 coats.




img_1901Depend Rough Glitter – 5031 Secret Santa

img_1912Depend Rough Glitter – 5032 Make a wish

Make a wish is a purple textured polish that covers in three coats.




img_1920Depend Rough Glitter – 5033 Elf kisses

Elf kisses is a black textured polish that covers in three coats.




img_1928Depend Rough Glitter – 5034 Frosty star

Frosty star is a green textured polish that covers in one coat. The formula of this polish is amazing, it is so easy to apply.




img_1936Depend Rough Glitter – 5035 Reindeer dash

Reindeer dash is a grey textured polish that covers in two coats.


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.


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

IsaDora Autumn Rebels

This fall IsaDora released a new collection in their gel lacquer formula, the polishes are supposed to last on the nails for a week. It’s the first time I’m trying the gel lacquers and I’ve only swatched them so I can’t say how long they last on the nails. But I can say that the formula of the polishes are really good, they were super easy to apply!

The collection consists of ten shades and two top coats, one glossy and one matte. I got to try six of the shades and the top coats. All shades are new except 221 Iced coffee.

I’ve swatched the polishes with both the regular Gel Top Coat and the Matt Gel Top Coat.


img_0867IsaDora Autumn Rebels – 221 Iced coffee

Iced coffe is a gry-ish brow polish with silver shimmer that covers in two coats.


img_0869IsaDora Autumn Rebels – 262 Vagabond

Haute hippie is a purple polish with red shimmer that covers in two coats.


img_0877IsaDora Autumn Rebels – 269 Blue velvet

img_0878IsaDora Gel Nail Laquer + Gel Top Coat

img_0879IsaDora Gel Nail Laquer + Matt Gel Top Coat

IsaDora Twist-up matt lips

With the lastest mail from IsaDora I got not only nail polish but some makeup news too, Twist-up matt lips in 67 Dark Velvet and Sculpting liner in 66 Mulberry.

img_9893Twist-up matt lips & Sculpting lipliner

I don’t use colorful lipsticks that often even though I really like it when I do. Since I don’t use lipsticks that often I’m not super good at applying them, and the more colorful the harder they are to apply.
When I use lipsticks I usually go for light or nude colored lipsticks (MLBB shades) and you don’t have to be super precise with the application then. This lipstick was easy to apply, and even easier after using the lipliner first.


I didn’t wear the lipstick for that long, but I have a feeling that it will stay on the lips for many hours and still look good (since it was really hard to remove). I really like this shade but I would also like to try the Twist-up matt lips in another shade that is more wearable on a daily basis.

Beauty favorites September

It’s time for a new category here on my blog, monthly beauty favorites! Products that I have used and loved this past month.


Rituals – Honey touch

I seriously can’t stop sniffing myself after I’ve applied this body creme. It smells sooo good and leaves my skin soft and moisturized. I really like Rituals body cremes because they sink in to the skin very quickly, and as I already said they smell so lovely.

Exuviance – Triple Microdermabrasion

This face polish is the best! My skin feels so smooth and soft after using it. This is a product that will always be a part of my skin care routine from now on.

The Body Shop – Himalayan charcoal

This is one of the new face masks from The Body Shop. I got a sample of it a few weeks ago and after trying it I just had to buy the mask. I like how it makes my skin feel deeply cleansed and my pores smaller. Read more about it here.

Ole Henriksen – Truth serum collagen booster

First of all this serums smells amazing! Like the color hints, it smells like orange. I have just started to use this serum but so far I really like it, it feels like it gives the skin a bit of an extra glow.

Depend – Eyebrow Pencil slim & thin

This is one of the new products from Depends Perfect eye collection and the eyebrow pencil quickly became a favorite of mine. It is really easy to use and the result gets better every day. My brows are on fleek with this pencil!
