Zoya – Kimber

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

I’m still digging through photos from the past year to edit for the blog, it’s nice to have something to fall back on when there’s hardly any light to photograph in these days. Here’s a polish that I wore a few months back, the beautiful Kimber from Zoya’s Surf Collection. From what I can tell the color is a mix of coral, red and pink, and it’s filled with orange/golden shimmer. I don’t remember the number of coats, but if I would guess it’s probably my usual three with Seche Vite on top.

Just look at that beautiful shimmer!

China Glaze – Surfin’ For Boys & I’m With The Lifeguard

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

As I wrote in my previous post I got my new polishes just before I was going away on a trip, so I decided that a couple of them could accompany me on that. I chose to wear Surfin’ For Boys on my tips, and I’m With The Lifeguard on my toes.

I found the formula to be a little thick, but I thought it looked OK after two coats. There was a tiny bit of VNL but it didn’t bother me at all. They dried to a semi-matte finish and I added a coat of Seche Vite on top.

Surfin’ For Boys is an insane neon coral shade with shimmer, I don’t have anything like it in my stash.

This shade was really hard to capture on photo! It’s a bright red coral, I think I got close enough on these photos.


And on to my toes. I try to keep them at a safe distance from you so you won’t get a foot shock =)

I’m With The Lifeguard is a shimmery green neon, and I think the color looks pretty accurate here:

A perfect color for your toesies!

China Glaze TMI

Friday, November 18th, 2011

It’s Kerstin’s Holo Friday again! And this polish was on my nails a couple of weeks ago or so, so it’s not fresh for today. Of course the sun disappeared behind some clouds when I was going to photograph this one, but some of the holo effect is still visible. This is TMI from China Glaze’s OMG collection, and it’s some kind of warm coral shade. I think this one will be used a lot during summer, it feels like a summery shade.

The first two photos are taken with a cloudy sky:

I really like this one! I applied three coats, and didn’t have any problems with dragging.

Have a wonderful weekend!

H&M Coral

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

I bought one of the Spring Nails mini sets from H&M a few months back, and the polish that interested me the most was Coral. I’ve been slightly obsessed by that color this season, both in polish, makeup and clothes. And I’m really glad I got this one, because it’s quite beautiful. It’s a light coral shade with golden shimmer. To be honest I don’t really remember how many coats I did, but probably three as I usually do, and I don’t think I had any problems with the formula.

I love the golden shimmer in this!

Lovie No 93

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

I wanted a color with a summer feel on my nails, so my choice fell on Lovie no 93. I’ve never tried this brand before, apparently it’s Greek, and I got it att ÖoB of all places (Swedish store Överskottsbolaget) for 39 SEK. It’s an orange coral shade, and my first impression is quite good. The brush isn’t too wide, the formula was nice and went on smooth. I applied three coats and then topped it with Seche Vite. There was a bit of VNL but I don’t know if a fourth coat would have made any difference. The color isn’t quite as bright as it may appear on the photos, but you definitely notice it! I’m guessing it’s quite similar to Eyeko Coral Polish, if you have that one.

More sunlight!

And after a few days I wanted something more on my nails, so I put on a sticker from Depend. All in all, this is a manicure that makes me happy when I look at it!
