IsaDora “Black Crush”

Att ha sett detta lack på massor av bloggar senaste dagarna fick mig att börja undra varför i hela friden jag har väntat så länge med att bära det. Black Crush från IsaDora är ett svart strukturlack med silverglitter, det torkat matt och grovt vilket får det att glittra likt våt asfalt. Svart lack är något av det chicaste och coolaste som det är, och den här grova varianten pushar det ännu ett steg längre. Det ser sisådär ut i flaskan men fantastiskt på naglarna!

Två lager behövdes för full täckning och det torkade förhållandevis snabbt.


Seeing this polish on loads of blogs during the last few days had me wondering why the heck I had waited so long to try it on. Black Crush from IsaDora is a black structure polish with silver glitter, it dries matte and gritty which makes it sparkle like wet asphalt. Black polish looks so chic and cool by itself, and this rough finish pushes it another step forward. It looks so-so in the bottle but like a dream on the nails!

Two coats was needed for full opacity and it dried pretty quickly.

Risk It All

Yesterday I did the classic lip+nail match which looks very put together and serious, but it’s actually one of the quickest “full looks” ever! Some mascara and soft liner on the upper lid, a neutral base, some brows, then smack those nail matching lips on!

KICKS “Forget Me Not”

It’s that time of the year again, the pictures  are getting worse and worse because of the few hours of sunlight during the day. The only pictures that were even representable today was the ones taken with my iPhone, so yeah..

Forget Me Not from KICKS is a dusty pale blue shade, just like the flower (Förgätmigej in Swedish) with the same name. Opaque in two coats and it looks really fresh and clean!

Hugo & Debra Naturals Liquid Hand Soap “Creamy Coconut”

I’m so silly when it comes to hand soaps, it’s easily my favourite hygiene product! I love trying new ones out and switching scents. The one that I’ve got in my snot green soap dispenser at the moment is Creamy Coconut from Hugo & Debra Naturals, a cruelty free, gluten free, soy free, vegan liquid soap that’s supposed to keep your hands soft. I don’t know about that last part as my hands are dry whatever I wash with but it smells lovely!

I bought my bottle on iHerb, if you haven’t before you can use my code DIF762 while checking out to get $10 off orders over $40 and $5 off smaller orders.
