I really, really like this collection and I love that Depend made matching creme and holo polishes. It’s perfect if you want an accent nail or make nail art in matching tones. I would have loved to have a purple pair in this collection, let’s hope we get to see more holo polishes in this formula from Depend in the future!

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!

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.

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.

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

img_5585

img_5586

img_5587

img_5588Ellos – Champagne chic chevy

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!

Born Pretty nail polish

Last week I got some polishes from Born Pretty store that I was sent to review, one holo and one creme polish. I have actually never tried any of their polishes before, I’ve only tried their stamping products previously.

img_3681

Here are the products that I got; Dark Green BPR005 (item id #35982) and Heart of gold (item id #36892).

Dark green BPR005 is a green creme polish that covers in just one coat and the formula is amazing! It has the same wide rounded brush as Heart of gold which makes it super easy to apply.
