Hey guys! Long time, no blogging again! There’s just so much you can do when your nails break off, you know… Oh well. Onto the swatches! A few weeks ago my friend Tina over at Beleza gave me this entire collection since she had already swatched them and needed space for more polish. Oh poor …

Swatches of Ciaté Haute House mini collection

Hi everyone! My mother gave this cute little set to me for Christmas, and since I regrettably couldn’t get my hands on the Ciaté advent calendar this year, the Haute House set was a perfect little replacement.

Swatch of MAC – Rain of Flowers

Hi everyone! Today I have the most difficult polish to capture on photo ever created, or MAC Rain of Flowers, to show you. I bought this polish ages and ages ago, right when I started collecting nail polish, and was blown away by the beauty in the bottle. When I tried to take photos of …

Swatch of Ninja Polish – 100% Colombian

Hello everyone! Long time, no blogging! At first I wanted to write some kind of long winded apology, but then I remembered that I have one of the most legit reasons why I had to stop blogging for a while, and thought that I’d rather come back with a magical polish instead – and a …

Swatch of China Glaze – Atlantis

Hey everyone! This here was my number one unicorn for quite some time; Atlantis. I had a period when I loved everything green and blue, but then I must have grown out of it because I went back to reds and purples before long.

Swatch of W.I.P (Urban Outfitters) – Black Halo

Wait a second – what’s this?! A HOLOGRAPHIC nail polish – and a white back ground?! What’s going on?

I believe this is the first holographic polish I’ve shown here, and …
