Chanel- Paradoxal


What a great number, isn't it ? :) 

I got this polish when it came out from a special someone...
So when I'm wearing it, a lot of memories come back 

The color is LOVELY, really, it goes with nearly everything, it's chic and glossy and if you like those kind of colors, definitely go for it !
The only sad thing of it, is that it doesn't last long on me, it starts chipping after one night... 
any tips for making it last longer ?

On the picture above, you can see (a bit) that it's packed with purple shimmer, it's hard to capture on picture, and not always visible on the nail, but it gives dimension to the color, it adds depth and makes it more special than just a plain taupe.

I changed this last picture a bit, so it's not that color accurate,
but I think it's a nice and soft picture :)

Do you also have polished you care a lot about ?
I'd like to know which one !

Essence - Gold old Buffy (Vampire's Love collection)

Hi there ! 

Wow 250 followers ! Gosh, thank you all ! I know it's cliché to say but it's true, I never thought I'd get there ! :)

Today's post is about a black polish, it's usually not my cup of tea, but I like this one :)
Maybe it's because of the gold shimmer, and therefore it looks a bit greenish ! 

Indeed, this one has loads of shimmer in it, I love it !
the name is cool too, suits the collection well, though I didn't like Buffy, I was suuuuper scared of those series, but then again, I'm afraid of everything, even of Charmed (you guys remember that?)

Yes I'm knitting, it's a bit a grandma thing, but I like doing that, and I wanted a tube scarf, so that's why I started... but it's sooo time consuming ! :P
Btw: I did 2 coats, and 1 coat of Catrice growth supply on top, no idea why I did that :-/

Have a nice day loves !

S-he - 224

Hi there :)

As promised, I'm back with another blogspost :)
I was initially only gonna post it tomorrow, but when I write a blogpost, I'm too impatient and I want you all to see it immediately, sorry for that :-/

I got this polish a while ago from Ivana, and I don't get why I didn't wear it more often...
I just love the silver shimmer in it ! Application went very well too, I did 3 coats, but actually 2 would have been enough, I just had to correct a few imperfections 
(We all know it's hard to eat when nails are wet)

Overall it's a very wearable pink, even in the winter, sometimes, I feel like some pinks are too bright to wear in cold weather, see what I mean ?

Ah isn't our puppy a cutie ?
I melt when I see this pictures :)

Catrice - Chinchilly

Hello my Sunshines ! 

I'm back ! I know, I know, I haven't posted since AGES ! 
But I'm gonna change this ! 
One of my New Year's Resolutions is to be a better blogger :)
So ladies, help me with it and tell me what you'd like to change/be improved, 
whatever it is, you name it ! 

First polish of this year is from Catrice: Chinchilly !

It's not a color that I usually wear, but it matched my outfit :) 
(You know I'm obsessed with that :P)
Overall, the polish is good quality, though, when directly against the sun, you can see trough it and I absolutely don't like that :(

After 2 coats, you're pretty much ready to go (excepted the see through in the sun effect)
It's glossy and surprisingly, the color isn't dull. There is a kind of depth to it, 
even if it's a plain creme :) 

I also ombre dyed my hair a few days ago 
(I know it's not that visible on this picture, but in real life, my tips are quite blonde/ginger, let's say strawberry blonde, and I L.O.V.E it ! :) )

So little ones, don't forget, if you want me to improve something, make regular swatches, bigger pictures, more pictures or more polish related comments, please tell me ! 

With Love,
