Nail Pattern Boldness “Aquamarine”

Today I’m wearing Aquamarine from Nail Pattern Boldness on my nails! A shade exclusive to the Edgy Polish webshop. The colour is a soft and slightly dull green teal, like a “tattoo green” colour, with magenta glitters. Not dramatic on the nail but still interesting. Actually quite classy! I’m wearing three coats but two would probably have been enough. I’m liking it!

The iPhone pictures gives the polish a lot more justice for some reason, both in colour and glitter effect.

NCLA “LAX Jet Setter”

I’ve had this idea of the perfect gunmetal grey nail polish for a while, and I ran into NCLA LAX Jet Setter on sale at Grand Parfymeri which totally fulfilled my dreams! A darkened silver metallic that looks clean enough to glow and dirty enough to not look blingy. Two coats gave perfect opacity and no brush strokes worth caring about. Purrrrfection!

Yay, nail polish!

I’ve gone full on Marvelettes waiting for this Edgy Polish package, and today it arrived! I broke a bunch of nails yesterday so they look like shiet but who cares when there’s pretty nail polish, right?

You find the Edgy Polish webshop at edgypolish.com, they offer worldwide shipping.

Pahlish “Olea Europaea”

Holographic olive green. THE perfect shade of olive, it feels both dusty and old gold-ish at the same time. Gorgeous! Good formula, not gunky or hard to apply at all.

Nail Pattern Boldness “Aquamarine”

Deep teal green with magenta glitters. Edgy Polish exclusive. Super creamy formula, and the glitters don’t drown on the nail at all which I honestly expected it to do in a polish like this.

Smitten Polish “Amas Veritas”

Rich hot pink jelly with prismatic pink/magenta glitter. Smitten never ever disappoint me and same thing applies to this shade. It’s a deeper “royal” shade of pink, it feels so fancy!

Nail Pattern Boldness Digital Hydration Basecoat

Ridge filling and moisturizing basecoat infused with argan oil. Tried it once, feels nice, can’t say anything about the quality yet.

Nail Pattern Boldness Digital Flash Topcoat

Quick drying thick topcoat that isn’t supposed to shrink. Sounds nice, tried once aswell and it gave me super shiny and dry nails, we’ll see how the formula holds up with time!

CND Vinylux Flora & Fauna collection for spring 2015

I love me some CND Vinylux polishes. With their special topcoat they wear exceptionally well plus they dry very quickly. Let’s look at the spring collection called Flora & Fauna which is in stores now!

Dandelion, Salmon Run, Blush Teddy, Creekside, Thistle Thicket, Field Fox, Wild Moss, Fragrant Freesia

As you can see it’s a very calm and nature-esque pastel colour scheme, not very candy like as pastels often go. The ones that I like the most are pale blue cream Creekside, nude-taupe-grey cream Field Fox and the best of them all: Wild Moss which is a dusty green with golden flecks. Which shades did you fall for?

Top 20 nail polishes of 2014

Dags att knyta en rosett på 2014! Här är 20 av de nagellack jag tyckt allra mest om att bära under året.

Time to wrap 2014 up! Here are 20 of the nail polishes I enjoyed wearing the most during the year.

top 20 nail polishes of 2014

 

Snackar vi färg så ser vi massor av kalla nyanser, jag var knäpp i blekblått och gulgrönt under våren/sommaren och gick mer inpå svärtade turkosa, blå och dammiga grå mot hösten/vintern. De varmare kopparnynserna, knallrosa och mörka röda har hängt på året om.

Finishmässigt har jag fastnat för rymdlika skimmer, jämna holografiska lack, smutsiga metallicnyanser, duo- eller multikroma lack och såklart de klassiska krämlacken.

De mest representerade märkena över året är troligen Smitten Polish, Colors By Llarowe och Lilypad Lacquer. Alla tre märkena har växt i mina ögon med sina ljuvliga färger och den grymma kvalitén.

 

Shade wise there are loads of cool tones, I was crazy about the pale blues and yellowy greens during spring/summer and got more into the blackened teals, blues and dusty greys towards fall/winter. The warmer coppers, hot pinks and dark reds have followed along all year.

Finishes I’ve liked are space-like shimmers, smooth holographics, dirty metallics, duo- or multichromes and of course classic creams.

The most represented brands over the entire year are probably Smitten Polish, Colors By Llarowe and Lilypad Lacquer. All three brands grew on me with their amazing quality and gorgeous shades.
