Although english is not my native language, I decided to write this blog in english. This is simply because most of the blogs I follow myself are written in english, and everytime I find a promising blog in a language I do not understand, I'll get a little bit sad. So bear with me, maybe my handle on the language isn't always perfect, but my intentions are good.
Giveaways I like!
Never Ending Obsession is having a Birthday Giveaway. Give the girl some happy wishes and get a chance to win some smelly color Clubs ! Open until Nov 24.
Raeven who writes the blog Let Me See Ur Peacock (very funny name, right?) is having not one but two giveaways. This one ends November 30 and is featuring 3 lovely Nicole polishes.
Here is Raevens other giveaway, made up from some of her favorite stuff. Open until December 15.
A couple of months ago, Maria, nail addict and blogger behind the blog 3Daily decided to start her own nail polish brand. This is the first polish from Cult Nails. As a long time follower of course I had to order a bottle. I probably would have done so no matter what color she presented, it takes a lot of courage to follow your dream and I admire her.
Lucky for me, the color is absolutely gorgeous. It is a greyed out lavender with a discreet shimmer. In the bottle it looks like a silver shimmer but look closely on the nail and it is actually blue and pink! The shimmer is subtle, in inside lightning it looks like a very shiny lavender creme, outside it looks more grey and the shimmer is just barely noticeable.
Application gave me a little trouble. The polish is very thick and tended to stick to the brush in an awkward way. It is very well pigmented and after a few drops of polish thinner the second coat went on pretty smoothly. Showed is two coats over Nubar Foundation, Seche Vite on top.
Now, I have read good things about the lasting power of this polish and I aim to put it thoroughly through the test this coming week. I will work in tight rubber gloves all the coming week, with about 30 hand scrubbings a day. Any polish that lives through that is up there with the best of them. Ladies, I will keep you posted.
In the meantime, why don't you check out Cult Nails? I pre-ordered the other polishes as well and I look forward to them very much. Maria will ship internationally for a very reasonable fee and the shipping is lightning fast.
(this polish was bought and payed entirely by me and I am not affiliated in any way with Cult Nails. Actually, I don't think Maria knows I have a blog.)
This is last weeks manicure. I had to wait for five days until the sun showed up. Excuse the wear.
Anyway, this is a lovely color. It covers in one or two coats (I did two). I'm not impressed with the drying time, it took forever even with Seche Vite and I dinged my middle nail more than five hours after I painted it.
I must say I like it anyway. Nude, but with a twist!
Thanks to all who entered my giveaway! I had a total of 129 entries.
After writing everyone down in a note book, I used my own random chaos maker (Harriet) to cut all the entries into small slips. I then placed all of them in a fancy fruit basket. And shaked. And shaked again.
The first one to fall out of the basket was Kvacka. Congratulations! I have sent you a note. If I don't hear from you in a week I will draw another winner.
