Nails of the Day: GOSH Rainbow Nail Polish

I’ve wanted to get a  nail polish with such effect for a long time already so I was happy to find GOSH Rainbow. It is basically a clear nail polish with golden flakes. It looks amazing on dark nail polishes but nothing special on bare nails or pastel/light polishes.

I have to say that the effect is great when you apply a thin layer of nail polish. If you don’t  – you will get the effect that I got ( looks quite messy and untidy) and I can’t say that I like it. For some reason it also reminds me of leopard prints which I hate.

Anyway, this can be a great product if you can apply it the right way and you have  beautiful manicure. And, as you can see, I have mixed feelings about my manicure. Although my girlfriends say that they like it (maybe they just want to be nice lol).

Next time I will try to use it over the green or red nail polishes, should look great for Christmas! (Have you noticed that I use the word “Christmas” a lot lately?!)

And I obviously need to do something to make the length of my nails the same.

If you can’t find GOSH (a brand from Denmark) in your country, I know that Nubar makes a nail polish with similar effect.

Nails Of The Day: OPI Every Month Is Oktoberfest. Rave

It’s not that often  I see  a beauty product and think to myself: ” I must have it!”. But when I saw swatches of OPI’s Every Month Is Oktoberfest, I knew that I had to get it.

I finally did get it  in October and want to show it to you today.

OPI does fantastic and complex dark nail polishes and this one is not an exception.  It is blackened reddish purple (does that even make sense?).

It looks fantastic on the nails, especially in the sun.

My friend’s two-years-old girl was mesmerized by it the other day 🙂 She was actually very sad that her Mum does not let her paint her nails as she is “too small yet”  (according to her).

On the photo above I am wearing only one coat on the nail polish.

I love the brush which is thin and wide, the formula and the colour.  I have applied it two days ago and it looks great so far but OPI nail polishes do last on me for three-four days usually.

Every Month Is Oktoberfest is definitely in my personal  TOP 3 nail polishes now!

Nails Of The Day: Essence 26 Break Through

I really like Essence nail polishes. They are small, affordable and have a fantastic colour selection. I have picked up several shades the other week actually.

So today I want to show you this incredibly beautiful shade called Break Through. I can’t actually believe that I did not have anything similar already.

It is a gorgeous magenta with a very delicate golden micro shimmer (which you can’t really see on the photo).

This nail polish applies smoothly and is gives a beautiful coverage with two coats.

I think it is a  beautiful colour  for summer as it is bright and playful.  I love it  and can’t stop looking at my nails.

 

Nail Enamel by Inglot in 318 and 949. Review and Swatches

I wrote about one nail polish collection that I wanted to get several months ago.  I am sure that my friend Charlotte knows what I am talking about. And guess what? I could not find it!!! I contacted the brand several times via  e-mail and twitter and got no answer. By the way, I was not the only one who did and we all got the same results. I don’t understand what’s the problem here.

But well, it’s not the only nail polish brand and I can always get what I want from the other one, you know. So this is what I did! I’ve picked 2 shades  that I wanted from Inglot : lime green 318 and cream coral 949 . The brand has TONES of beautiful shades and I am so getting more of them!

Check out the swatch of the Coral Shade 949
