Nails Of The Day: Rimmel 60 Seconds in 710 Alaska

I like Rimmel’s 60 Seconds nail polishes a lot and have quite a few shades, my favourites are blue Sky High and fuchsia Funtime Fuchsia.

I have picked up their Alaska nail polish last month, as I though it may look nice with my skin tone. And I do love how it looks like on.

Unfortunately, this particular shade goes on a bit streaky and I have  to apply two-three coats to make it look decent. Luckily, Seche Vite smooths it out perfectly and it looks great. Other than that I have nothing to dislike.

Thin and wide brush, nice staying power, affordable price and a beautiful shade.

As you may know, I love my berry and

Nails of the Day: OPI Baby It’s Coal Outside

Today I am wearing  Baby It’s Coal Outside by OPI which is a part of Toyland Collection (Holiday  2008).

And I have to say that this is one of my favourite nail polishes. Looks like it was created just for me. It is very dark, almost black with beautiful silver shimmer.

It gives an opaque coverage with 2 coats and it last for a whole week. Yes, all OPI nail polishes that I’ve tried  look perfect (and I mean it) at least 5 days.

You just have to apply OPI nail polish the right way or you can get a manicure in the salon.

And yes, I do love Parisienne. A lot!

Nails Of The Day: Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Nomad

Recently I received several products from Illamasqua’s SS 2012 Human Fundamentalism collection so today I want to show you the nail polish in Nomad.

I love Illamasqua nail varnishes and this has to be one of my favourites. I absolutely adore everything about it!

The colour is just perfect, a beautiful jade creme finish which is opaque with only one coat. The formula is lovely, it goes on smoothly and is non-streaky; Nomad looks amazingly beautiful on the nails!

Nails Of The Day: GOSH 549 Holographic Nail Polish

I’ve been meaning to get this GOSH nail polish for quite a long time but  it was sold out all the time. Finally it is mine, I’ve got the last bottle by the way.

I never had a holographic nail polish before so I was mesmerized by this one and instead of working I was staring at my nails most of the time.

Isn’t it beautiful?

But my problem was that by the mid of the day my nail polish did not look as nice as it was supposed to look. Later I read on the bottle that due to a special formula  one should wear a 565 Fix Base Coat. Yes, I was so excited to try this nail polish that haven’t noticed that before.

I am a bit surprised that one should use a special base coat not a top coat, but I am not a nail polish expert.  Next time I will definitely try the proper application. I had to remove my nail polish on the other day because it looked to bad.

I am not sure if all holographic nail polishes are like this or only this one though. I don’t like the staying power but I really like the effect.

I’ve been

Nail Of The Day: Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise

Max Factor Glossfinity nail polish in 85 Cerise was an impulse purchase  but I love it so much that I recently bought a second bottle, as I’ve used up the first one. And that says a lot, considering how many nail polishes I have, and red ones in particular.

It is a gorgeous glossy warm toned red which  looks opaque even with one coat. It is like the coolest accessory for your nails, it brightens up everything. As dramatic as it sounds – Cerise makes me feel incredible, and I never want to be without it.

I have mentioned it so many times but somehow never posted a proper swatch, so here it is. (I am also wearing it here)
