Swatch of OPI – San Tan-tonio

San Tan-tonio is a nougat colored cream polish, and as much as I love the shade in its bottle it clashes with my winter skin tone. I’m curious as to see how it suits my skin tone once I’m a bit more tanned (I do tan quite well). As a polish it’s just as divine …

Swatch of Ciaté – 017 Un-restricted Glam

Un-Restricted Glam is a plain black jelly polish, which is incredibly shiny even without a topcoat. It reaches full opacity with three coats and dries as quickly as you would expect three coats of jelly to. This is my first real black jelly and I’m definitely looking forward to experimenting with it! Un-restricted Glam är …

Review of iOS application: Make-Up Kit

Welcome to the review of my favorite makeup organizer application – Make-Up Kit. The logo is great, the layout is great, the fonts and the colors and even the developer is great! This is, according to me, the best application in this category on the market. Enjoy! Välkommen till recensionen av min favoritapplikation för sminkorganisering …

Swatch of H&M – Silver Frost

Silver Frost is a clear polish with silver hexagon glitter and tiny square glitter, and is much like a silver version of Stay Golden. Silver Frost is part of the Snow White collection from H&M, and the only polish I was particularly interested in out of all of them. Just like Stay Golden will this …

Swatch of H&M – Stay Golden

Stay Golden is a clear polish with golden hexagons and micro glitter and comes in the standard H&M bottle. The glitter is rather sparse so it works well in jelly sandwiches but maybe not so well as a packed-with-glitter accent nail or similar. The many coats will just make it gloopy and take forever to …

Review of iOS application: beautyCase

Once again I’ll be reviewing a make up application from the nail polish collector perspective, but beautyCase holds all types of make up as well as skin care products. There are loads of unnecessary graphics, and it looks a bit old fashioned, but it does what it says it does, and here is what I …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 120 Another Bite

Another Bite is a bright pea green polish, and the reason why it looks all weird in this photo is because it shows up bright teal in the camera. No matter what I do with white balance, lighting, background – nothing makes this polish show up the way it’s supposed to be. There are some …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 117 New Love

New Love is a bright hibiscus colored cream polish, and such a gorgeous color it is! The name New Love is probably meant to suggest that this shade is very close indeed to the former hibiscus shades from Gina Tricot, that is 60 In Love and 87 Great Love. I’ll do a quick comparison on …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 114 Pistage Dream

Pistage Dream is a dusty pale green polish with green glass flecks. It’s fairly sheer so three coats is needed, but they dry pretty quickly so that evens it out. I was a little worried at first that the glass flecks wouldn’t show up as well on the nails as they do in the bottle, …

Review of iOS application: Makeup Inventory

Okay, onto the next application, the Makeup Inventory. It sounds promising enough, but don’t judge an app by it’s icon! Allow me to introduce the messiest application I’ve ever seen! Okej, vidare till nästa applikation, Makeup Inventory. Det låter ju lovande, men döm aldrig en app efter dess ikon! Tillåt mig att presentera den rörigaste …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 110 Pool

Pool is a lovely dusty teal jelly polish, and the first jelly I’ve ever encountered from Gina Tricot. I’m wearing three easily applied coats in this photo, and you can just barely see the edge of the nail. Cleanup was a tad sticky but nothing unexpected, as was the drying time. I can’t wait to …

Review of iOS application: Cosmetics Pouch

Here’s a cute little application called Cosmetics Pouch full of pink and purple, bows and love. It handles more types of products than just nail polish, but since I only collect nail polish I will be reviewing it from that perspective. However, if you wish to catalog your entire make up collection, entering new items …
