Essie Body Language

Now, this is not going to be a long post.
Great news is the polish I'm wearing does not need that either. Essie Body Language is a straight up nude, opaque in 3 coats color. The picture is taken in the setting sun, so normally the polish is a little cooler in color. Three coats, but I grew more and more happy with it...


What did I do?

I just ordered 65 wonderful polishes from an e-tailer, that's what I did!
I tell you, those flat rate shipping deals will be the end of me, I swear...
I will show you the loot when it gets here, for now I just want you to say it is all right to splurge when you've got the chance..

A Reason For Divorce!

I declare, if this polish was a man I would kiss it, pick it up and elope with it, fly to Las Vegas and marry it in a drive-through chapel the day after!

Lucky for me it is just a polish and the only thing I really, really have to do is to find me a back up bottle.

This is Nubar Gem from the Prisms collection. Two coats over Nubar Foundation and Seche Vite on top. It is a true duochrome, mauve and grey, with a holographic glitter.
I'm in love with this polish!

My Stash (part 3)!

Here is the final part, this is the one that really tells it all ;-)

Pure Ice, LA Colors (and LA Girls), Wet 'n Wild and other assorted american brands.

Picture eleven: First two drawers is swedish polish (H&M, Viva la Diva, Depend, Make Up Store and Isadora). Third drawer is english polish (Ciaté, Illamasqua, Model's Own, Nail Inc and BarryM).

More english polish in first drawer (Rimmel, MaxFactor and other brands), french polish in second drawer (mostly L'Oreal). My last drawer is reserved for the rest of the world! :-)

Well, I guess this labels me a polish hoarder by all known definitions.
How about you'll? Do you want to show me your stash?

My Stash (part 2)!

Here is part two of this crazy post:

Two more drawers of Sally Hansen, then we have other american brands, like CoverGirl, Piggy Polish, Milani and Ruby Kisses.

Picture number six: Misa, RBL and Revlon.

More Revlon, then Orly, $OPI, Spa Ritual, Color Club, Del Sol and CND.

Nubar, Essie, BB Couture, Nyx and Sinful Colors.

Butter London, Zoya, MAC, ManGlaze, Hard Candy, Urban Decay and Maybelline.

Stay tuned for the last installment!

My Stash (part 1)!

Taking a deep breath and steadying myself. Do I really dare to show you this?

Obviously insane, or just a little nutty? You decide!
(and this post is picture heavy, so if you're not into polish porn, just feel free to move along)
Actually, because of my very limited blogging knowledge, I will have to divide this post into parts, because of the many pictures.

Maybe some of you will find a use for this post when your SO has issues with you buying too many polishes. Just direct him to me, I'll take care of him ;-)

I have six Helmers. Adorable pets all of them, if you just feed them regularly (but never after midnight..)

I sort my polishes by countries, brands and collections, in that order.

First picture: Nailart and Konads in the first drawer, then OPI.

Second picture: More OPI. (and some free space for future hauls)

OPI and China Glaze, probably my favorite brands if I had to choose.

More China Glaze, and Sally Hansen.

That is the end of Part One, stayed tuned...

Sinful and Innocent

A short post today to show you that I'm not dead after all, just way behind with my posting. Too much work, too little time.
I actually wore the Dior polish from the last post for two weeks straight, so there is nothing wrong with the durability of Dior Addict.

This weekend I changed my manicure and tried out Sinful Colours Glass Pink. How could such an innocent colour be called sinful?

This is what Cinderella wore to the famous ball, capturing the heart of the prince with her lovely fingers. I bet it's the same colour as her glass slippers!

Two coats over Nubar Foundation, SV as top coat. Lovely sheer glass flecked pink colour with a strong golden flash.
My left hand pinkie had an accident so this is my rarely photographed right hand.
