Swatch of Max Factor Max Effect Mini – 19 Deep Grey

Deep Grey is a charcoal shimmer polish, bordering on a frost finish. It’s so beautiful in its simplicity that I am almost ashamed to say that this was an untried for me until I took these photos. I find it difficult to tell whether the base is black and just so crammed with frosty shimmer …

Swatch of NYX – NPS208 Moonwalk

Moonwalk is a charcoal jelly based polish with hexagon shaped holographic glitter particles in two different sizes. I’m wearing one coat on black underwear in these photos, because there is no way you can build this polish up on its own to full opacity without ending up with a thick goop on your nails that …

Swatch of Max Factor Max Effect Mini – 18 Cloudy Blue

Cloudy Blue is a dark blue shimmer polish with a dark grey base and slightly duochromatic shimmer. You can’t see any of the duochromatic effect on the nails, but you can definitely see it in the bottle. I dislike polishes that do that, because you get your hopes up and then they fall flat as …

Swatch of Nina Ultra Pro – Sailor

Sailor is a dark blue cream polish, and it’s the glossiest cream I have ever seen! This is two flawless coats, without topcoat! This is my first ever Nina polish, and it was a thank-you gift from a fellow blogger, Ann-Sofie at Colour It, for helping her with her blog theme. She could not have …

Swatch of Max Factor Max Effect Mini – 17 Green Bronze

Green Bronze is a black based polish with golden tiny flakes, and is actually neither green nor bronze. I absolutely love black based polishes with gold in them, like China Glaze – Cast a Spell or W.I.P – Supernova but what I like about Green Bronze compared to the other two is the amount of …

Swatch of NYX – NPS205 Manhattan

Manhattan is a blackened purple shimmer polish with large shimmer particles in blue and purple. It’s rather sheer, I needed three coats for it to reach full opacity. The amount of coats give it a nice depth, though, so I think it’s definitely worth the extra work. Manhattan är ett svärtat lila skimmerlack med grova …

Swatch of NYX – NPS195 Red Wine

Red Wine is a dark burgundy red cream polish that borders on brown. I was hoping for a cooler dark red, and I’m desperately looking for the perfect dark red cream, and unfortunately this isn’t it. It’s very opaque, one medium thick coat does the trick but since I prefer thinner coats I had to …

Swatch of NYX – NPS184 Enchanted Forest

Enchanted Forest is a lovely green glitter polish, the base is a cool green bordering on teal with green and gold glitter particles, which makes it look slightly duochromatic in certain lighting. It’s been a huge lemming for me and when CherryCulture had 40% off all NYX products I just had to get it. Enchanted …

Happy birthday to me!

Hey guys, Tomorrow is my birthday! I won’t be able to write anything tomorrow (might manage a scheduled post but I can’t promise anything), so that’s why I’m writing now. I turn 26 tomorrow – I can’t believe how fast the time is going now! And it will gradually go even faster as I get …

Swatch of NYX – NPS168 Midnight

Midnight is a blackened red shimmer polish, and is my number one favourite type if polish. It’s a dupe of both IsaDora – Black Rose and Calvin Klein – Opus (and probably OPI – Midnight in Moscow, which I sadly don’t own yet), but this one is a one-coater. It has, just like the dupes, …

Swatch of Color Club – 848 Tru Passion

Tru Passion is a soft purple glitter polish with a clear base and two to three different sized glitter particles – just like Object of Envy, I find it hard to tell. I’ve paired it up with OPI – Planks a Lot, one coat of each. I’m sure you’d be able to build up the …

Swatch of Color Club – 847 Object of Envy

Object of Envy is a grass green glitter polish with a clear base and glitter particles in two or three different sizes – I find it hard to tell, even in the macro shots. It’s very densely packed with glitter, in these photos I’m wearing one coat over Gina Tricot Beauty – 61 Rain Forest, …
