NOTD Sinful Coco Diamond

18 Feb

I must say I like this one. It was my Valentines Day mani. I have had this in my untrieds for a long time and as one of my readers wanted to see some Sinfuls this was a goot fit for V Day. I love the shimmer/glitter, it is what makes the polish – as the color itself is not that unique. It is so far the best of the Sinfuls I have, not as runny and thin as the others, and it looked good after three coats even if I ended up with some VNL… (I always find the VNL is more visible on day 2, anyone else find this?)

Coats: 1 CND Stickey, 3 coats Sinful CD, 1 coat Nubar Diamont and 2 drops OPI Drip Dry drops.
Light: Daylight, sun.

NOTD Orly Glam

Orly Glam

Orly Glam

As requested by avroys in the post about untrieds!

Am very sorry about my abscence, but life have once again gotten in the way of the swatching and have had no time to take any pictures or made any posts. Sorry, hope you my readers will be back 🙂

The Orly is an ok polish, like a poor mans option of Ruby Pumps (the ultimate red sparkle). In the bottle the sparkle looks silver, on the nail it becomes red – most likely because the base is red. And I needed 4 coats before it was opaque!

This is the first polish I tried Diamont on, love that it doesn’t pull the polish but I did have some problems with marks in the polish the day after I applied it. Will soon post a comparison post with SV and Diamont, putting them up against each other.

Hope the weather is nice where you are, here in eastern Norway we are having great summer weather at the moment 🙂

2 coats Orly Armor, 1 CND Stickey, 4 coats Glam, 1 coat 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!
