Swatch of Snowcrystal – 461 Celery Green

461 Celery Green is a cool green cream polish with a slight hint of silver shimmer. The application was a lot better with this one than with Spring Lilac, this polish behaves much more like their other creams. This is three coats, but I think you could probably get away with two if you don’t …

Swatch of Snowcrystal – 452 Spring Lilac

452 Spring Lilac is a pale purple frost polish with tiny gold flakes, and it looks just absolutely stunning in the bottle. On the nails, however, it falls a bit flat. The streaks that are so typical for frost polishes don’t go that well with the gold flakes, and even with a layer of topcoat, …

Swatch of Snowcrystal – 428

428 is a chocolate brown cream polish which I bought a few months after I first tried Snowcrystal. It’s just as flawless as its sisters, but a lot more office friendly. It reaches full opacity after two-three coats, I used three for this photo. Cleanup and removal is super easy, and due to its slight …

Haul: Max Factor Max Effect

Okay, non UK-girls, please don’t die of envy. I know I would if you showed me these beauties lined up like this! These polishes are like liquid gold. One is more beautiful than the next. I can’t believe how lucky I am to finally own all these. Can you tell I’m a bit dumbstruck, or …

Haul: Rimmel Metal Rush

I might just have the best colleague in the whole world. He went to London with his girlfriend last weekend and I asked kindly if he could keep his eyes open for some special nail polishes if he went to Boots or Superdrug. He said that he would and I sent him a list with …

Haul: Nordic Cap

These polishes were super cheap, but I have heard good things about this brand so I decided to give it a shot! I got these five, and I’m very curious as to see how well they behave. When I swatched them on my swatch sticks, the yellow was surprisingly opaque, and the blue and grey …

Swatch of Snowcrystal – 427

427 is a dark red crelly polish, and the last of the first five I bought from Snowcrystal. It’s also, hands down, my most used nail polish in my entire stash, because it is the perfect dark red. It’s almost empty, and so the polish has started to get a little thicker, but it’s still …

Swatch of Snowcrystal – 418 Sunny Yellow

418 Sunny Yellow is a soft pale yellow cream polish, bordering on pastel. Three coats to reach full opacity, easy cleanup and removal. This polish is also part of the first five, and seeing as it’s half empty, I have used it quite often. I remember wearing it to the climbing gym I used to …

Swatch of Snowcrystal – 417 Dark Turquoise

417 Dark Turquoise is a medium blue cream polish, and yes, it has a name! The names aren’t written out on the bottles, but I found them on Snowcrystal’s website. Not all of the polishes I have were listed on their website, but I took the ones I could find. Also part of the initial …

Swatch of Snowcrystal – 411

411 is a soft medium pink cream polish, which just like 410 has a slight jelly finish. It needs three coats to reach opacity and is an absolute dream to work with. This polish is also part of the five initial polishes from Snowcrystal and has been very well used, even though it’s a pink …

Swatch of Snowcrystal – 410

410 is a dusty teal crelly polish. It takes three coats to reach full opacity, and I’d say that it has a jelly finish, but it’s not quite sheer enough to use for jelly sandwiches. This particular polish is one of the first five I bought from Snowcrystal and one of my most beloved. It …

Swatch of Snowcrystal – 407

407 is a warm brown cream polish, rather bordering between maroon and burgundy. This is three coats, easily applied and easy to clean up even after four-or-so years. It is a bit of a mom-color, but still very office friendly and it goes quite well with my skin tone. Snowcrystal is the brand that got …
