I’m in love!

22 Jan

It’s finally mine! 509 was quickly sold out and some stores didn’t get it so I missed out on it. Then my mom found it at Munich airport before christmas. She tried it and decided that it was more my colour than hers. And that is fine by me 🙂
I also found some NOTD pictures while organising my photoes yesterday, so have 3 new posts coming up this week.

NOTD Color Club Ultra Violet

11 Mar

I’m still here and no baby yet… Even if I have lots of time on my hand, I’ve not really been up to blogging much (or anything else for that matter…). I’m sorry for this and hope my readers will not leave me permanently – I will come back stronger!

Over to the polish. A beautiful light violet with green shimmer, could it be any more beautiful than this? It is the perfect colour for spring. It’s from the Electro Candy Collection, that came out summer 09. I know, I know, I’m not really going through my untrieds very fast… Because I have been very strict lately and only worn my untrieds since christmas.
I love the colour and the formula was not all bad, but still had to add 4 coats before I was satisfied. Polish was not runny or anything, just not very colour saturated.

Just wondering, anyone else with a British background (either from there or learned to write the British way) want to write Colour Club? I have to, almost without fail, change when writing the name 🙂

Coats: 1 coat OPI Nail Envy, CND Stickey, 4 coats CC UV, 1 coat Nubar Diamont and 2 drops OPI Drip Dry drops.
Light: Daylight, sunlight.

Double NOTD – Color Club Wild at Heart and Sinful Fiji

14 Nov

My camera is back! Turns out my husband didn’t do a great job when he was searching for it and found it a pocket of his jacket yesterday. Next time I’m looking for it myself, not relying on others!

Any how, moving on. On the camera I found my NOTD of one of my new favorites, CC Wild at Heart. What a great polish! The pictures you see is 1 coat (I know!!) and it is perfection. It is the same great holo we’ve gotten used to from CC, but million times better than Fashion Addict (the light purple holo). It goes straight into my Top 20!

Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 1 Wild at Heart and 1 Nubar Diamont.

Second is Sinful Fiji. Pictures are not exactly accurat, hard polish to photograph – especially as sunlight and even daylight are scarce here at the moment. It is less foily and more purple in real life. It was only ok, very similar to OPI You Ottaware Purple in formula (thin) and opacity (not great). It also didn’t dry very well, the marks are from me putting on tousers about 3 hours after applying – still not dry! The tipwear is from shopping at Ikea…

Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 4 Fiji and 1 Nubar Diamont.

I have two polishes for someone of you guys to win! Orly Passion Fruit and Orly Velvet Rope. Why do I have these you ask? Well I have found out that when your collection grows you do some mistakes such as ordering the same polish twice (Velvet Rope) and you order dupes (Passion Fruit is a dupe for CC Electrical Coral and a lighter version of Orly OMG). Velvet Rope is BN, Passion Fruit is swatched.

To win do the following: Leave a comment on this post and let me know where you are from (city and country). Leave your email or a link to your blog address so I can contact you if you win. All readers are welcome to join. Competition ends 4. August and a winner will be contacted after that. Do you only want one, let me know in the comment.

I’m sorry that I haven’t got any pictures of the polishes. Check out Nailgal for swatches of the polishes.

NOTD Color Club Fashion Addict

Color Club Fashion Addict

Color Club Fashion Addict

A purple holographic, wow! This was part of my first Color Club order. I like this brand, the bottles are nice, they have some great colors and their latest collections are great!

I love the holographic, it is one of my favorite finishes. I can’t say I love this color on me though, it makes me look washed out and just don’t think it is the best look on me. But I am keeping it just because I love the color!

2 coats Orly Armor, 1 CND Stickey, 2 Fashin Addict, 1 Nubar Diamont.

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!

2 coats Orly Armor, 1 coat CND Stickey, 2 coats NYC CS, 1 coat SV
