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. Overall, I’m very pleased with these polishes, the formulas are very nice, two of them are one coaters …

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 OPI – Muir Muir on the Wall

Muir Muir on the Wall is a dark, vampy duochromatic polish, shifting from warm purple to dark gold (to green in some lights).

Comparison of Gina Tricot Beauty – 188 Million Chances and ORLY – Space Cadet

Like I said in my previous post, Million Chances really reminded me of Space Cadet, so I decided to do a proper comparison. They look a bit different in their bottles due to the different shapes of the bottles – the light hits them in different angles. But, on the nails, it’s nearly impossible to …

Swatch of Gina Tricot Beauty – 188 Million Chances

Million Chances is a beautiful shimmer polish with a very strong duochromatic effect. The base is a sheer teal, and the shimmer particles go from pink to gold to green. This is two coats on black underwear, since it’s much too sheer to wear on its own, and no top coat. Remind you of anything? …

And, as …

Swatch of Viva la Diva – 121 Fallen Angel

Fallen Angel is a deep purple shimmer polish with a strong duochromatic effect in the bottle, and a faint one on the nails. The base is a dark blurple and the shimmer particles are rather large, which gives this polish its incredible depth. The formula is okay, neither bad nor good. Three coats were necessary …

Shimmer Fudge is a fantastic, slightly duochromatic polish; a deep copper with hints of a vibrant warm gold, which in certain light shifts to green. The formula is fantastic, so easy to apply, clean up and to remove. This is two coats without topcoat. Sometimes Gina Tricot just gets it so right you can’t pass …
