Instagram Pictures #3 & #4

I didn't post it the other week, so I put 2 weeks together. I'm sorry for the lack of posts again. I'm making long days at work and then I don't even bother getting on my laptop. Also, yesterday 1 of my dogs died. 3 days ago I post a picture on Instagram saying I thought he might die soon and yesterday he did die :(

Rimmel London Misty Jade. A gorgeous jelly!

This is from 2 weeks ago. I had to go to the hospital and parked my scooter somewhere where you can't do that. I parked it next to a pole covered in stickers saying when you park your bike wrong it means your bike is gone. I didn't notice that sticker until I came back. So this sticker is a warning!

Catrice Month: Salmon & Garfunkel

Hello! Today I'm showing Salmon & Garfunkel. Don't let the name of this polish fool you, because it's not a salmon color. It's more a peachy orange. A very cute color to me although I don't know if it looks that great on me with my skintone.

Salmon & Garfunkel may look like Catrice's Apropos Apricot, but that one is more brown/orange. Unlike most polishes with the new brush from Catrice this one applied so much more better than other new ones from Catrice. It was opaque in 2 coats.

So, what do you think of Salmon & Garfunkel? :)

Thanks for reading :)

Catrice Month: Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans

My nails are short again! My nails started growing and growing and they were actually strong and not breaking. A dream came true! But I decided that I don't like long nails on me, so I filed them down a few days ago :)

But Today I'm showing you a discontinued polish that got undiscontinued :P I'm glad it came back, because I once saw a swatch of Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans and then found out it had dark blue glitter in it. That's when I knew I needed it. Not needed, but just had to have it.

Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans is a jeans blue polish with blue glitters in it. Those glitters are hardly noticeable in the bottle, but do come out on the nail. It applies easy and 2 coats is needed for opacity.

To be honest I don't like it that much. This is just not my color. I'm more of a baby blue, blue/green, teal kind of girl. Can't get enough of those! :)

Thanks for reading :)

Catrice Month: Blue Cara Ciao

Guess who's back? Me! :P I haven't gone anywhere though. After my last post I got busier than expected and didn't turn my laptop on for 3 or 4 days :O That's a personal record for me. I wanted to post yesterday, but not posting one more day doesn't kill anymore.

And something I feel like sharing; I overslept this morning! That's like the 3rd time in my life (high school not included :P) I'm not sure if I woke up after my alarm went off... I know I turn it off in my sleep sometimes, but I always automatically wake up at like 6 am, even when I can sleep in.

So, I'm back again with a Catrice swatch. I was confused the other week when i wanted to post this. I thought this was Pool Party At Night... Obviously it isn't. This is a deep bright blue color that really pops. It's the kind of blue I used for water when coloring in kindergarten xD The picture isn't color accurate. The color is a bit darker in real life.

2 coats, no base- & topcoat

Glitter Gal - Silver

I feel like saying 'yo', so here I go; Yo! How are you doing today? I'm exhausted and I feel like it's Thursday... How can a day feel like a specific day?

Anyway, as you can see no Catrice today :O I made a few swatches the other day and only had one left to post today. I kept thinking; Which one is this? And then I realized it was Pool Party At Night... xD

So here is Glitter Gal Silver. Not really a great name, but it IS such an amazing polish! It's the most holographic thing I've ever seen. When deciding on which Glitter Gal I would get I decided to go for this one, because I thought it might work as a nice holographic topcoat. It's not a nice topcoat. It's to streaky to add a coat over a polish and when you apply 2 coats you don't see the polish color anymore.

On the pictures I added 2 coats of Silver over 2 coats of Something Sweet from China Glaze.

My mom really likes this one too and she wants me to order a bottle for her too. I bought it at for € 8,96 which was with a 25% discount. Usually they're € 11,95, which is pretty expensive, but I think it's really worth it :)

Catrice Month: I Wear My Sunglasses At Night

We're a week into this Catrice Month! Yay! :)

I'm showing you I Wear My Sunglasses At Night today. A black polish with green and red glitters in it. If you ask me; one of the unique polishes Catrice made.

It's opaque in 2 coats. Formula was great again, like usual. I felt like it got a little bit thicker than it used to be, but not super thick. The polish dries really quick and needs a top coat for some shine.

Sadly this polish got discontinued, but maybe they bring it back sometime :)

Thanks for reading :)

Catrice Month: Raspberry Fields Forever

Today I'm showing Raspberry Fields Forever. For me it's hard to see what the color really looks like, but to me it's a pink/red color. Depending on the lighting it's pink or red and sometimes pink and red.

The application was wonderful again. It felt thin, but not watery. One coat will be fine when you have short nails, but 2 coats are required for longer nails. I didn't use a base- and topcoat again, but on the picture it looks like I have a matte index finger. It's really not, but now you can get an idea of what it would look like matte though :P

Thanks for reading :)

Catrice Month: Jade Is Not My Name

Today I'm showing you Jade Is Not My Name. Earlier Catrice came out with I Sea You!, which looks exactly the same, but to me it is slightly different.

Jade Is Not My Name is a beautiful jade green. Just like the previous polishes it was easy to apply and was opaque in 2 coats. Sadly it's discontinued and I was happy when I got Jenn from AllThatIsGorgeous a bottle, but the bottle broke on it's way :(

I hope that when Catrice comes with a new collection they come with polishes like this again. Pool Party At Night is also like this; A nice creme, not too light of a color and just simple but pretty. When they came out with the collection that is out now I was kind of disappointed, even though I got almost all of it already :P

Thanks for reading :)

Catrice Month: Heavy Metallilac

Happy Friday! :D Today I'm showing you Heavy Metallilac. A purple metallic. Or a lilac metallic. Whatever you prefer :P

I bought this one a few days ago, because I wanted to see if you could stamp with it. Guess what? I haven't tested it out yet. But I really don't like this one. I'm not into metallic polishes and I don't like some purples on me. Some make my hands look cold.

I don't think you can see it that well, but I think there is like an orange shimmer or something like that in it. This polish covers pretty well in 1 coat, but it's too sheer to wear just one coat, but two is perfectly fine. It's not as streaky as the pictures show.

Oh, I just noticed that this is my 100th post! :D

Thanks for reading :)

Catrice Month: Pool Party At Night

Welcome to day 3! This is Pool Party At Night. A B-E-A-utiful blue. I find that on the picture it looks like it has a hint of purple in it, but I don't find that it has that hint in real life too.

I don't think Catrice came out with a lot of blue polishes ever since I started hoarding them :P Just like Dirty Berry it applied so well and 2 coats was enough. You can get away with 1 thicker coat though, but I always prefer 2 thinner coats.

I didn't use a base- and topcoat for this swatch.

Are there any Catrice polishes that you want to see swatched here? If I have it, I'd love to swatch it!

Thanks for reading :)

Catrice Month: Dirty Berry

For day 2 of the Catrice Month I have Dirty Berry to show you. It's supposed to be a holographic polish, but it's not really noticeable in real life. It's still a berry nice polish though :)

The application of this one was really nice. The polish wasn't too thick or thin (even though it's a really old polish) and it dried pretty quickly. 2 coats were needed for opacity. For this swatch I didn't use a base- and topcoat.

I didn't mention it in yesterday's post, but this polish is still available. I think when Catrice will come with a new collection Dirty Berry might get discontinued. So get it while you can! :)

Thanks for reading :)

Catrice Month: Miss Piggy Reloaded

This first day of May I'm starting with my Catrice Swatch Month. I have over 50 Catrice polishes and I would just like to show you a part of my collection :) So I'm gonna post a swatch of a color each day (I hope I won't fail) and some days I will also show you some nail art. Probably mostly just stamping and gradients :P

Miss Piggy Reloaded is a peachy pink color filled with orange shimmer/micro flakies. While applying this one it reminded me so much of Catrice's Walk On Air. The only difference is that it is orange.

For this swatch I applied 3 coats of polish and didn't use a base- and topcoat.

Thanks for reading :)

Pink & Yellow Zebra

Today I'm showing you an old manicure again. I keep finding stuff on my laptop that I haven't posted. I don't know if it's just laziness or because it shouldn't be here... This manicure was just to see if I could use Essence Yellow Mellow for stamping, because I found it a bit thick.

The result; Yes and no. Yes, if you want a subtle look and no if you want it to be more obvious ;p I believe I tried this manicure before I got N.Y.C. Lexington Yellow, which seems more suitable for stamping.

I'm sorry for the short post, but I believe I should keep it short :P

Thanks for reading :)
