Catrice Chrome Infusion nail polish

Catrice is one of my favorite drugstore brands for nail polish. And even though I haven’t been into doing my nails these past few months, when they launched some new polishes, I knew I had to try them. I already reviewed the new Brown Collection and today we will delve deeper into their new Chrome…

Best yellow nail polish

The most difficult color nail polish to get right? Yellow. There is just something about this color that makes a polish go on streaky 9 times out of 10. And if they’re neon, it is even harder to get right. I thought I’d show you some of my favorite yellow nail polishes today. Here are…

Best bright nail polish

For summer time, I am always into seriously neon bright nail polish. Especially on my toes, but sometimes I will be brave and also slap on a bright polish onto my finger nails. I picked out a few of my favorite shades to show you. Best bright nail polish

Favorite Catrice nail polishes

If there is one brand that I love for nail polishes it is Catrice. There are a few others of course, but when it comes to affordable brands that are readily available to me, then Catrice would be my pick. It is hands down the brand I have the most polishes from and that is…

Instanails #9

Today I am bringing you another overview of some of the different nail looks I wore in the past 2 months or so. I have been really enjoying doing my nails lately, which has led to quite a few nail polish posts on instagram, because that’s where these manicures go first. I wore an array…

Instanails #8

Time to show you some of my nail looks again. After a few weeks of painting my nails, I like doing these overviews to catalogue them and do mini reviews of some nail polishes. I haven’t been really into too many new colors as I feel my nail polish collection is pretty solid where it…

Instanails #7

With the Holidays fast approaching I’ve been enjoying doing my nails for then ever. I only have time to do them once I week, but when I do it, I make sure to take the time. I work out, have dinner, shower and then do my nails while watching some Youtube videos. I like to…

Top 5 OPI nail polish

You all know by now that OPI is my favorite high end nail polish brand. I love the formula, I love the longevity and I love the shade selection. I felt it had been a while since I showed you my favorite OPI shades. What I usually do is buy the limited edition colors, but…

Instanails #6

Ah nails! When it comes to beauty, nail polish was my first love and lately that love has been back in full swing. There is just something about fall that makes me want to paint my nails. Just like fall is my favorite season for all things fashion, it is also my favorite season for…

Instanails #5

Happy September! And to kick off this month in which classes will start back up again, I thought I could give you an overview of some of the different nail polishes I’ve been wearing. I’ve been on a roll when it comes to doing my nails these past few weeks. I am truly enjoying doing…

Essence Christmas advent calendar: contents & swatches

If you follow me on Instagram, you may already have seen a few of these polishes, but I thought it would be good to show you these in a proper article with better pictures and swatches. Because it isn’t every day that I get my hands on 20 (!) different nail polishes in one go….

NOTD: Model’s Own Beach Bag

When the sun comes out, I usually decide to switch up my nail colors for brighter shades. Where I have been stoked on pastels all throughout spring, with summer happening in full force, I opted for something a lot brighter. Meet Model’s Own Beach Bag. Models Own Sticky Nail Polish For Tans Beach Bag Model’s…

Instanails #2

I try to post a new picture on Instagram every day and sometimes those pictures involve my nail looks. I try to take pictures of my nail art/ nail polish for the blog. However, sometimes the pictures don’t come out well or I don’t feel the color or nail art are worth an entire blog…

My favorite nail polish brands

If you’re a nail polish freak like me, you try out many different nail polish brands. From the cheapest discount budget store brands to indie nail polish to very high end, I have tried anything and everything under the sun. I like trying new nail polish, but there are a few brands that over the…

NOTD: The semi-purple gradient

Not all nail looks turn out to be a success and I’m still not sure how I feel about the one I’m showing you today. On the one hand I like it, and on the other, I think it’s hideous! When I decided on pairing these polishes together, I went by the way they looked…

NOTD: Let’s get lost in Vegas

Am I the only gal on the planet in love with the Catrice Luxury Lacquers line? I hear nothing but a beep about the new line Catrice released last year. First as a limited edition and now as part of their regular line available in stores which sell the expanded range. The colors are stunning….

NOTD: Rose gold galore

Rose gold is everywhere nowadays and when I found these two rose gold inspired nail polishes last year I thought they would make a great combo to hop on to the trend. They are both super affordable, as they’re by budget brand Catrice, and I absolutely love the colors. The two polishes are from limited…

Catrice Viennart & Essence Come to Town nail polish

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you made it into the new year safe and sound and I wish you all the best for 2015. Today’s post is short but sweet as I am still recuperating from dinner with friends and am quite possibly on my way to celebrate New Year’s Day with my family….

NOTD: glammed up peach

A quicky nail post after this morning’s musical extravaganza. One of my favorite ways of wearing glitters lately is by using a pastel or fairly neutral base color and to layer the glitter over that. This is one of my favorite combinations so far. Products used: L’Oreal Miracle Repair 7 base coat for damaged nails…

NOTD: Greige not beige

For today’s second post I’m bringing you a NOTD I wore recently. I’m still loving the sand style or liquid sand type nail polishes. So when I was in Germany and checked out local drugstore DM, it was a no brainer to pick one of these up. I found this gorgeous taupe color from P2….

5x summer polish faves

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…

Best toe nail colors

It’s summer which means those peep toed shoes and sandals can be brought down from the attic. And with exposing your feet, most people will start wearing nail polish on their toes. I tend to wear nail polish year round because my feet are out a bit more and I just like the overall look…

World Championship manicure

In case you didn’t know, the world championships soccer are currently being held in Brazil. Whenever the Dutch team plays at these type of international events, a certain frenzy takes a hold of the country. Since I live next to a bar where they show all the matches of the Dutch team, I cannot escape…

Nail care routine

One of the most soothing beauty rituals on the planet is doing a manicure. Since you can’t use your hands for a while afterwards it not only forces you to simply sit and do nothing, but also the routine of it allows me to relax and focus on something differently for a little bit. I…

NOTW: Sparkle sparkle in the dark

Today I have not one, but two nail art looks that I created just recently. They are easy, simple and versatile as you can easily make these with different colors. I am currently into dark nail colors which I then top with glitter, but since that can be a pain to remove, I decided to…

NOTW: Midnight in Moscow

Shock & horror! No it’s not Halloween just yet, but I think for the first time on this blog, I have a nail of the week for you that entails only one nail polish. Before you start thinking that I am losing my edge: I’m not. I had a party to go to and I…

NOTW: Pastels for Easter

Just a quick little post as I’m busy with some social activities these days. I visited my parents for an Easter brunch yesterday and today I will be hitting up some friends for a birthday so I don’t have much time. This is the nail look I put together for a fun spring/ Easter look….

New Nail Polish – Essence & Catrice Million Styles

The other day I popped into my local drugstore. Even though I wasn’t looking for anything, I found some A+mazing nail polishes. Essence just recently revamped their collection, however the polishes that I know came out, I haven’t been able to find just yet. What I did find though, are two very pretty other colors….

Review: Sephora Express Nail Polish Remover

One product many beautyblogs have been raving about is the express nail polish remover by Sephora. What it is, is a little pot with a sponge inside that should make cleaning up polish from your finger nails a breeze. After reading some reviews about this product online I thought I’d give it a shot and…

NOTW: Strictly Cookies & Cream

This week I wanted to try something clean and simple. I love Ciaté’s Cookies & Cream nail polish as it’s a great neutral shade. I decided to pair it with a stripe of Ciaté’s Strictly legal as I thought the dark purple with subtle golden glitter would be a good contract with the creamy beige…

NOTW: Sparkly New Year’s Nails

When deciding on what nail polish to wear, I quickly grabbed two of my new glitter polishes. I especially think the duochrome polish is very suitable for celebrating the new year. It reminds me of fireworks! I am wearing the turquoise glitter polish on my thumb and pinky. My other nails are covered in a…

NOTW: Bella & Edward sitting in a tree…

K-I-S-S-I-N-G… Oh well something like that anyway. I thought the title would be apt, as I’ve used my new Essence nail polishes on my nails this week. On Saturday you could read about my recent haul, where I bought a few Essence nail polishes. These polishes were just added to the line and I hadn’t…

NOTW: Ladybug Nails!

My first serious attempt at nail art you could say. I already made bumblebee nails a few months ago, but that was tooth picks and what not. I just recently purchased some nail art supplies from Ebay, such as small brushes, liner brushes and nail dotting tools. These things really didn’t cost me that much…

NOTW: Red & Green for Christmas

I decided to yet again paint my nails in seasonal colors. This time they’re red & green! These are the polishes I used: Hérôme WIC London & Koh Rain Forest On the left you see the red, which is from the World Inspired Colors collection by Hérôme. The color is called London and I bought…

NOTW – Pretty in Pink

So yes, I’m still going pink! Most of last week my nails were pink, OR I was wearing pink eyeshadow. Today, my nails needed a new coat of polish again. so this is what I did: Voilà, nice & pink once again. This color is by Catrice (see bottle on picture) and is called, Sweets…

My Pink Mission: up till now & NOTW

As you have been able to read on Monday, I am trying to add something pink to every outfit for a month to support Pink Ribbon & Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So far so good I would say. Here’s what I’ve done so far: – On both Monday & Tuesday, I wore pink eyeshadow –…

NOTW – Midnight blue & purple

Used: – Miss Sporty Clubbing Nail Polish no.28 – Cosmetica Fanatica Quick Dry Nail Polish no. 32 – Miss Sporty Clubbing Nail Polish no.34 – Cosmetica Fanatica…

NOTW – Pretty in Pink

So this week I tried to keep it simple and went with this pink color from Eyeko. Excuse my hideous looking nails, but they all started to chip and break in the past week. Used: – base coat – Eyeko Tea Rose Polish for Country Nails – OPI Top coat Isn’t it pretty? And if…
