Comparison of Ciaté – 015 Fashionista Sister & FACE Stockholm – 32

When I chose Fashionista Sister I thought it looked more blurple than it does in daylight. When I looked at the bottles outside I realized that I already had a polish that looked just like Fashionista Sister – no. 32 from FACE Stockholm. They do look very similar in the bottles, except that the FACE …

Swatches of Ciaté – 015 Fashionista Sister, 048 Starlet & 049 Silhouette

I walked into the city mall’s beauty department the other day and found the shelf of dreams – the Ciaté shelf! I asked the clerk how long they had had Ciaté in the store (it’s otherwise nowhere to be found here in Sweden that I know of), and she said they had had them for …

Ravenclaw nails

From the moment I started reading Harry Potter I’ve always been convinced that the wizarding world does exist, and if I’d been accepted to Hogwarts I’d definitely end up in Ravenclaw. Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure. All those for-fun tests online have always placed me in Ravenclaw, and the ultimate test which Rowling …

Swatches of H&M – Lips To Thrill, Kiss Me Red & Dare To Kiss lipsticks

These are the matching lipsticks to yesterday’s post. I really like lipsticks (about the same amount I dislike lipglosses) but I rarely get the opportunity to wear it now that I have a baby I’d much rather kiss all the time. I do, however, really like H&M’s new lipsticks in the nice paper casings and …

Swatches of H&M – Midnight Passion, Red Nail & Nerd

For fall I love the classic colors on both nails, lips and clothing – and it seems that most stores do so as well this year! H&M is ne of my favorite stores (especially now that I’m on maternity leave), because their products are usually both cheap and really good quality. These three polishes match …

Blog update

So, the new theme is installed, a bit earlier than I wanted to, but I simply had to because I was making big messes in my last theme. The comment section looked hideous and the WordPress Jetpack didn’t want to cooperate with my old theme so here it is! I’ve been busy in PhotoShop making …

Swatches of H&M – Blue, Red, Pink, Black & Matte top coat

H&M releases these five packs of thin, tall polishes in five different shades that go well with the season ahead, a few times a year. The five pack this autumn looks like this – four colored polishes and one matte topcoat. I really like these polishes, but the matte topcoat could definitely have been better. …

China Glaze – Something Sweet with black french tips

When I was reswatching my very few China Glaze polishes today I got the idea of trying a black tip on Something Sweet – and isn’t it gorgeous? När jag tog nya swatchbilder på de få China Glaze-lacken jag har så fick jag för mig att testa att måla på en svart tipp på Something …

DC Superhero Nail Art Series – Star Sapphire

The next design in the DC Superhero series is Star Sapphire. She’s part of the Violet Lantern Corps (power of love) and also Hal Jordan’s (the Green Lantern) (ex-)girlfriend. Although the Star Sapphires are the violet version they’re usually drawn wearing pink, and that’s why I chose to paint my nails in pink but with …

Swatch of OPI – Siberian Nights

Note: Updated photo Jan-03-2013 Siberian Nights is a dark, almost black, purple and actually the first polish I ever bought from OPI. I really love dark shades and can barely wait for fall and all the dark polishes! My first bottle of Siberian Nights got stolen from my room in my dad’s old apartment by …

DC Superhero Nail Art Series – Wonder Woman

Okay, time for a superhero you already know (unless you, like me, know the DC universe inside out, that is) – princess Diana of the Amazons or Wonder Woman! I’ve tried to do this mani so many times but never quite got the stars right. Eventually I swallowed my artist’s pride and went and bought …
