For someone who is not exactly into “nude” nail polishes, I have quite a few. I have chosen seven which could fit the nude/taupe/brown-ish category.
So what shades do I have? And which is my favourite?
Dior Vernis in Grege
I love the wide and thin brush which makes the application super easy and fast. It is a beautiful warm shade which suits me when I get some tan. But if you have a light-to-medium warm skin tone – this may be a perfect nude for you. See it applied on the nails.
MeMeMe Long Lasting Gloss in Alluring
This is one of the darkest nail polishes from the selection, and should be a nice nude for people with darker skin. Or if you want a brown nail polish against the light skin. The quality is nice for the price, too. Swatches.
Yves Rocher Nail Polish in Taupe
This is definitely not a nude, but a taupe. Such shade was super popular several years ago and I can totally see why: it goes well with pretty much everything and doesn’t compete with your outfit or accessories. Manicure with it.
MeMeMe Long Lasting Gloss in Ambitious

When you have been around for a while (it will be 9 years next month), you can remember posting about the Pantone Colour of the Year a few times: Greenery, Marsala, Radiant Orchid, Emerald and Tangerine Tango.
So it is time to take a look at the colour of 2018 which is Ultraviolet.
Here is how it is officially described: “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future“.

Summer is here and I hope those of you who love summer enjoy it. I am not really a fan of summer because most of all I hate the heat!
Here are some products* that I’ve tried and that I think work great for summer.
Be sure that your makeup is waterproof so you don’t end up looking like this 😉
Add a sun-kissed glow to your face with Too Faced bronzers.
My favourite cream blush, true coral shade by Illamasqua, works perfect in summer heat.
Want to create bright vibrant eye makeup for summer? Everything is possible with Inglot shadows.
Be sure to use cream eye shadows that don’t smudge or crease, something like Benefit’s crealseless cream eye shadows.
If you are going to the pool and to the beach and like to use makeup – use only waterproof products, something like
