NOTD NYC Cognac Sparkle

4 Jun

About a year ago I read a post stating that if you could only own one polish you should own this. I fell in love and immediately put it on my lemming list. It is pretty hard to find (htf) for me in Norway, but I finally got it in a swap. And I love it! it did not disappoint. In some light it looks like an ok brownish-purple. In the sun you can see the awesome glitter/shimmer and it comes to its right. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it is my no. 1 polish, but it is definitely in my top 20!

NOTD N.Y.C. Taxi Yellow Creme

10 May

Spring is here and it’s time for some spring appropriate colors on the blog! Problem with that is that they tend to be more on the sheer side and that is something I’m not that fond of (despite of my large collection of sheers). They leave VNL (visible nail line) and my problem is I am allergic to it!

The polish is a gorgeous pale yellow with shimmer and is my substitute for the gorgeous and US exclusive Chanel Sunrise, and on that note it does its job.  However it is a streaky mess and it took 6 coats to get it to even remotely look ok and to resemble bottle color. It is almost acceptable, but can safely say this is not a polish I will reach for too often.
