Swatch - P2 640 Heartbeat

This is a new colour from P2, out in Germany now.
It is a bright orangey red, very good for spring feeling. I could have done just 1 coat, coverage is great, but I did 2 just out of habit.
Drying time was quick.
I stamped 1 finger with China Glaze Passion and Konad plate M5.

Swatch - China Glaze Sea Spray

What is it, a greyish blue, a blueish grey? I go for the combination of both.
This colour is absolutely gorgeous!
Coverage is wonderful, I barely needed 2 coats. Drying time was very long, no idea why :-(

Something Personal - Cats part 3

My cats are extremely curious, and whenever I go sit next to the window to make some pictures in daylight of my nails for this blog, they come and sniff and I keep on having cat noses in my pictures...

So this time I decided to give in and take a picture of them, instead of my nails, so here are my cat swatches :-)







Have a nice weekend!

Swatch - Catrice In the Bronx

This one of the new colours that Catrice just brought out in Germany.
I didn't own any bronze colours, no idea why? This is so beautiful, a golden bronze with sparkles in it!
It applies wonderfully, I just needed 2 coats, and dries very fast.

Layering - China Glaze Towel Boy Toy & Golden Rose flakies Nr 14

In Holland we have a big supermarket chain called Albert Heijn. I just went to do my groceries there, looked around, and thought wow everything has the colours of my nails!
Everything in their logo is bright blue, and the match was amazing, I should have stayed there as long as I have these nails just to so everyone can see me matching haha!
China Glaze Towel Boy Toy is a bright bright blue (brighter than in the picture). I needed 3 coats as it is quite sheer, and it has a matte finish which also means it dries super quickly.
I put Golden Rose Nr 14 on top, wonderful blue/green flakies, and a lot of topcoat as I don't like matte finishes...

Layering - China Glaze B-Girlz & P2 Crackle Golden Rush

I shortened my nails! Once in a while I'm fed up and I shorten them and let them grow again.
It feels so nice being able to type easier!

Today I applied a very happy pink, China Glaze B-Girlz. It covers really well, these are 2 coats, but drying time is a bit long. Unfortunately my camera doesn't capture the brightness of the colour, it's a verrrry bright pink, so lovely in real life!

On my ring finger I put one coat of P2 crackle polish in golden rush. This polish is just € 1,75 in Germany and crackles wonderfully! It has some lovely sparkle in it.

Swatch - China Glaze It's my Turn

This is a polish from China Glaze's Kaledidoscope collection which unfortunately is very hard to find but very beautiful.
It's a golden colour with holographic glitter in it, lovely in the sun.
Drying time was super fast, and I needed just 2 coats.
The kitty sticker on my pinkie was a gift from the lovely Diana

Nailart - Flowery Dating Time

I felt like a pastel today with the spring in the air outside, so I chose this one from the german brand P2, called Dating Time.
It is verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry sheer unfortunately. I used a nude colour as a base (Nail Creation 47) and then 3 coats of the polish to get this result.
But as often with difficult polishes it is so worth the trouble, I feel like I have pistachio icecream on my nails!
I stamped with China Glaze Four Leaf Clover and Konad plate M73.

Something Personal - Cats Part 2

So I have been wondering for some time now how it's possible that my cat Moos, 5 1/2 years old, still seems to thinks his tail is a mouse that needs chasing. Shouldn't he know this thing is attached to his body by now?
Oh well the good thing is it makes me laugh quite often, and I managed to put it on film for you.
Sorry about the darkness, I was afraid he would stop if I put on the light, knowing how cats are...

Anyway here goes crazy Moos :-)

Nailart Fail - Brazilian Flowers

I got this beautiful nailpolish from my friend Ana, apparently it's a brazilian brand, Risqué, the colour is Vermelhos.
It's like a coloured gel when you apply it, very pretty, in an orangey red. I applied to coats and still had some visible nail line.
I stamped with Konad black polish, what a mess, everything was black on the table, I even found some on my chin! And it became all blotchy :-( I used plate M73.
I'm only showing you my thumb so you get an idea of the colour, the rest I took off 2 hours later, what a fail :-(

Swatch - China Glaze Recycle

I can't get enough of beautiful grey polishes, I keep on buying them!
This one is darker in real life than it looks in the bottle, I love it. Just a cream grey.

Nailart - Holographic Lizzard

The sun is shining today so of course I grabbed a holographic polish!

This is Nfu Oh 61. Application was horrible, like applying Tipex and each time you put on a new layer you drag the old one, argh! But after 4 coats it´s soooo worth it, this is so gorgeous in the sun!

The lizzard is a decal I ordered from Diana, she makes beautiful ones, I love them. She can make any design or picture you want and is very cheap. Email her on diana-konad@live.nl  for more information and examples of what she can make!

Nailart - Fairies

I discovered even H&M sell nailpolish in some of their stores, I got this lovely cornflower blue from them called Blue my Mind. My camera doesn't capture it right unfortunately, it's a bit darker and brighter in real life.
I applied 2 coats, drying time was very fast.
I stamped with China Glaze Sci-Fi, Konad plate M35 for the firy and some fake plate I got for the stars, no idea where it came from to be honest....
