After posting my Top 5 Bottom 5 for Catrice, I got tons of requests for doing an Essence version. And so here it is! My top 5 bottom 5 of all things Essence. There are many more products by Essence that I could have featured in this video, but since I decluttered my entire makeup collection earlier this year, there are certainly a bunch of products missing in the bottom 5 category. That said though, Essence has been a very hit or miss brand for me and when they do something right it is an instant favorite. Let’s go!Read more
You know I love myself some Catrice, but I had never done a top 5 bottom 5 of my favorite and not so favorite products yet. As part of everyday May, I thought it could make a fun video to go over my best and worst Catrice products. From lipstick to concealer, from primer to bronzer: these are my 5 favorite and 5 not so favorite items from Catrice’s range.Read more
I have been hitting the blush train quite a bit these past few weeks. The winter time is possibly my favorite product to play around with in the winter time. Around this time of year I am fairer than fair and for some reason it leads me to experiment with blush shades a lot more than other times of the year. That is why today, I am sharing my 5 favorite winter blushes with you.Read more
For my first video of 2018 I’m bringing you some bookish content again. Wow! That has been a while! It’s been more than 6 months since I did a book video and I want to make more bookish videos on my Youtube channel in 2019. So what better way to fulfill that New Year’s resolution by kicking of the year with my best & worst books of 2018?Read more
It’s that time of the year, where we get to the end and I figured it would be good to do a video on my best and worst eyeshadow palettes of 2018. 2018 was definitely the year of the eyeshadow palette for me. It is hands down the product I tried most throughout the year. And in case you were wondering why nothing went live the past two days: I had some Christmas parties to attend and that meant a few late nights and hence no time for blogging! But I am back today with a new video and more content will be going up in the next few days. Enjoy your SundayRead more
In terms of nail polish I love a good glitter. Yes it’s a pain to remove, but a good glitter polish just takes your nail look from boring too playful and fun. Glitter is a great way to play around with nail polish. Often they are not full on glitter and thus are great for topping off other colorful polish which means you can create endless different looks. So I figured it was high time to show you 10 of my favorite glitter nail polish.
Best glitter nail polish
Summer is a great time for wearing nail polish. It’s a perfect time to do away with glittery top coats (although I like wearing those year round), and go with bright or pastel creamy colors. For summer, I like to go for extremes: the boldest blues, the brightest reds, but also some muted colors that remind me of summer. From the foam heads on crashing waves, to fruity watermelon and the prettiest flowers: these are my summer nail polish favorites for 2014.
1.) Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Blue Grape
WAM! BOOM! KAPOW! This nail polish couldn’t be more blue. And that’s exactly what I like about it. In any case, the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine polishes are some of my favorites when it comes to colors, texture and finish. It has a long lasting power and goes on like a dream. And this bright blue will go nicely on your hands or feet for that extra pop of color with today’s monochrome summer fashion trend.
2.) Essie Cute as a Button
You can’t go wrong with a pinky coral shade such as this one. It reminds me of fresh, ripe watermelon: one of my favorite and most refreshing foods for summer. It looks cute on the nails and is bright without being too much in your face. This Essie polish is fully opaque with two layers and has okay lasting power.
3.) OPI Mermaid’s Tears (Pirates of the Caribbean LE)
This muted muted green/ grey color doesn’t look like much in the bottle or the swatch, but on the nails this one is one of my favorite colors to wear. It has a very neutral undertone, yet still adds a bit of color to your nails. It looks especially nice against my pale skin tone (which doesn’t tan). The contrast makes for a very fresh look. And what else can I say about this polish? It is OPI, so you know I’m going to love it no matter what.
4.) L’Oreal Color Riche Nouvelle Vague
A pretty lilac shade always makes for a good summer shade. The L’Oreal Color Riche polishes are a bit thick and gloopy and go on opaque in almost one coat. Which, for a color this light, is actually a very good performance. For those days where you want something cute and colorful, but nothing too bright and crazy. Oh and did I mention I love the name? It’s the same as a French cover band’s whose music I love to play in summer.
5.) Max Factor Glossfininity Cerise
I don’t wear a lot of reds on my finger nails, but when I do it’s usually this bright orangy red and it’s always during summer. This polish has great lasting power, the color is amazing and it applies smoothly. The reason why I love wearing this in summer is because it goes with my favorite red summer lipstick (Topshop Rio Rio) and one of my favorite red summer dresses.
