OPI Iceland collection

I have not had the hots for many OPI polishes lately, but there is still the one off that I do love. Case in point: the Iceland collection for fall. There were a few polishes in this collection that caught my eye, but ultimately I felt they were to similar to colors I already owned….

OPI I Can Never Hut Up

The days where I would be tempted to buy a full range of a limited edition OPI nail polish collection are long gone. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love the brand. I simply own a lot of nail polish (in fact, it is in a desperate need of a declutter) which means…

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 #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…

OPI Soft Shades & New Orleans spring collections

When it comes to nail polish, you all know I love myself some OPI. It is by far my favorite nail polish brand and whenever they release new collections, which is often, I always check them out. So when I found out that this year OPI is releasing a 6 polish pastel collection as well…

OPI Hawaii collection

The minute I laid eyes on the OPI Hawaii collection on a number of blogs I decided I NEEDED a few of the polishes in my life. There hasn’t been an OPI collection in almost 2 years that I went crazy for like this one. The pretty pastel shades, combined with some amazing brights make…

OPI 50 Shades of Grey

It is no secret that OPI is my favorite nail polish brand. At first I wasn’t too excited to see their special limited edition for the 50 Shades of Grey movie release. I saw some swatches online, but wasn’t blown away. That was until I laid eyes on the collection myself. I picked up two…

OPI Coca Cola mini collection

I’ve been a tad naughty. Remember my London beauty products shoplog? Click and have a look if you don’t, but you’ll see that I forgot to include something in that shoplog. I wasn’t sure whether I was going to review this, but after swatching them, I decided to pop them up here anyway. During my…

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…

NOTW: OPI silver & taupe

Let’s start off this week with a nail polish post shall we? It features one of my favorite nail polishes: OPI’s Designer… De Better from the limited edition Muppets collection from a few years ago. It’s a gorgeous shimmery shade which I complemented with another OPI polish with a similar effect. Designer… De Better is…

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…

Shoplog: Sephora, New Yorker, H&M & more

Last Thursday I met up with two friends who I don’t get to see very often. I first met up with one of them to have lunch and go shopping in Utrecht. Later that day we went to the other friend and had some delicious pancakes to top of a great day. I bought a…

NOTW: Cracked orange

Another quick and easy post as I have been out enjoying the sun yet again. I swear I have been outdoors more in the past 3 days than I have in the past 3 years! Hooray for my hayfever not acting up too much. I can tell it’s not entirely over, but I definitely don’t…

NOTW: Million Dollar Green

I thought this is a very spring like nail look. It definitely reminds me of sunrays hitting the green grass of a park. So perfect for this time of year. My nails have been pretty banged up lately. I cannot seem to let them grow out and they break like there is not tomorrow. I…

My fave nail polishes for spring

Spring is in the air! That’s why I’ve been busting out my favorite spring nail polishes. I’ve been wearing blues, greens, oranges and the like. I thought I’d share the prettiness with you here. From left to right: Bourjois Tangerine Fatale, Catrice Welcome to Rosywood, Essence Walk On Air, China Glaze Turned Up Turqoise, OPI…

NOTW: Festive green nail art creation

I suddenly had this idea for making a new nail art creation. Again, it’s something very simple nor is it super fancy, but I think it’s cute and the colors are a perfect match to the time of year.This is the result: As you can see I went with a seafoam green base coat, added…

NOTW: Sparkling rose

I thought it would be fun to do a nail creation with some of my new polishes that I showed you the other day. This is what I came up with: I simply love these simple stripy designs and you can do them with so many different colors! The possibilities are endless. My hand wasn’t…

Beauty shoplog with MAC, Lush, nail polish and more

I got a few beauty related trinkets too over the past few weeks. Some of this I bought on a whim. Other things I bought because I had been wanting it for a long time. Here they are: Nail polish: NYC In A New York Color Minute Chelsea, NYC In A New York Color Minute…

Collective haul: John Frieda, NYX, Sleek & nail polish

I thought it would be time to show you some more items that I’ve bought. This time, it’s not clothes, but beauty and make up products. Here’s what I bought: John Frieda: Sheer Blonde Conditioner, Go Blonder Shampoo, Root Awakening Shampoo & Go Blonder Lightening Spray I’ve been curious about John Frieda products for a…

Nail Polish Haul – OPI, China Glaze & Hérôme

It’s time for new polishes! As the seasons are about to change from winter to spring, nail polish brands have started putting out their spring collections. Me being the nail polish addict that I am, I of course cannot stay behind and ordered a bunch of polishes, bought a few in the shop and got…

Haul post: nail polish & make up

I’ve been promising to write this post for a few days now, but I finally got round to taking pictures. The lighting sucked, so I wasn’t able to do this before today. As I posted last week, I posted a few orders online and all of those have by now arrived. I also went out…
