Wanna know more about my most worn pieces of clothing, my fashion no-gos, how long I’ve been with my partner or a bunch of stuff about Peggy & Selma? Obviously, so here are the answers!

On my nails:
China Glaze “Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”

Fire Red

Todays look! Nothing on my eyes, just a strong brow and bright orange red lips that match my nails. I’m trying out the CND Vinylux nail polishes that are supposed to wear for 7 days without damage, we’ll see how it works or if I’ll get tired of it before it starts looking crappy!

Also I just found the perfect eyebrow match for my new hair, I’m layering Peach Leopard Bronzer from Too Faced on top of my old brow powders. As the hair is a bit lighter than it was before the brows stand out more with my old semi-dark colour, but I really like the lighter hair/darker brows kind of thing.

Cirque “Powwow”

Okej vi smäller upp en till Cirque Heritage-färg när vi väl är igång va? Rosa Powwow blir det denna gång. En godisrosa med ljuvlig glöd och fina mjuka regnbågar. Lacket i sig är väldigt fint men för min egen smak är nyansen inte helt rätt. För att jag ska attraheras av rosa ska det antingen vara psykgalet, balettmilt eller dammigt office-gotiskt och här hamnar det snäppet under att vara riktigt färgstarkt. Gillar du nyansen kommer du förstås vara helförtjust i lacket. Två lager ger full täckning. Lista med återförsäljare finns här, ute att köpa nu!

Okay, let’s smack another Cirque Heritage polish up while we’re at it? Pink Powwow will be the one this time. A candy pink with pretty glow and soft pretty rainbows. The polish itself is very pretty but the shade isn’t quite right for my personal taste. Pinks that attract me are either psycho bright, ballet mild or some kind of dusty office tone and this one is a step below being really bright. If you like the shade you’ll adore this polish though. Two coats was needed for full opacity. List of retailers is here, you can buy them now!

Cirque “Cerrillos”

Jag jobbar på med Cirque Heritage-lacken, nu kikar vi på Cerrillos tycker jag! En blåturkos som med den glödande finishen ser ut som Hawaiianska drömstränder. Jag gillar att det inte slår över i grönt, såhär starka turkosa nyanser tycker jag bäst om när de behåller den där friska blå tonen. Det är fint på fingrarna, men det är inget jämfört med hur mycket jag älskar det på tårna. Jag har burit det på tårna i ett par veckor nu och blir glad varje gång jag ser dem. Två lager lack räcker gott och väl för full täckning. Lista med ställen att shoppa finns här, för nu är kollektionen ute! Jippi!

I’ll keep working on the Cirque Heritage collection, let’s take a look at Cerrillos today! A blue toned turqoise that together with the glowing finish looks like dreamy Hawaiian beaches. I love that it doesn’t pull green, I really prefer when turqoise shades this bright keeps that fresh blue tone. It’s nice on the fingers, but it’s nothing compared to how much I love it on my toes. I’ve worn it for a couple of weeks now and I’m still happy every time I see my toes. Two coats was enough for full opacity. Check here for a list of stockists, the collection is out now! Yay!
