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? Well, I don’t particularly like holographic nail polishes, so I rarely buy them and more rarely still do I show them on the blog. I believe this is the first holographic polish I’ve shown here, and …

Kiss Nail Artist Paint & Stencil Kit

The final set of Kiss polishes I have to review for you is this Nail Artist Paint & Stencil kit. It contains three stripers, one white, one silver and one black. It also contains 30 stencils that you can place on your nail and simply fill in the spaces with polish. Sounds pretty neat, right? …

Nail art: Ultra Brutal Technical Death Metal

My dear friend Emma invited me to come watch her boyfriend’s band Smothered play tonight, and even though I’m not much of a metal fan, I am a fan of her and her boyfriend so I’m showing my support regardless my musical preference. So, naturally I need to wear nails that go with the occasion, …

Swatch of nails inc. – victoria

Victoria is a rich dark red crelly polish, and so, so pretty! I received this in the Swedish December Glossybox, and I was so happy when I saw that it was the full sized bottle! The formula is rather syrupy, but not at all stringy or sticky. This is three coats without topcoat, and as …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 160 Licorice

Licorice is a cool dark grey cream polish and one that I bought and swatched last fall but didn’t get the change to write about until now. It’s a very nice autumn shade, but also a good winter shade I think, when you’re all red-and-green-ed out after Christmas. This is three thin coats without topcoat, …

Swatch of Chanel – 18 Rouge Noir

Rouge Noir is a very dark red crelly nail polish, and my dream polish in so many ways. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect dark red, and they have all either been too purple or too brown, too light or too opaque – but this… This is nail polish heaven. Two to three …

Swatch of NYX – NPS217 Dark Glitter

Dark Glitter is a red glitter polish in a black jelly base. The glitter particles are bright red hexagons in two different sizes. I tried wearing this on its own, but ended up with four sticky coats that weren’t opaque so I decided to layer it over black underwear instead. I should probably have done …

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 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 – 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, …
