Thank you !

Good morning dear readers and followers !

We can't believe we've reached out 101 followers ! That's amazing. Thank you so very much to all of you who have been following, commenting and supporting. We really appreciate each and every one one you !

Now about the giveaway, as you may know, it's now closed. I'll be verifing the entries and I'll be probably able to announce the winner tomorrow ! ;)

I don't know if I'll have the time to post during the week-end but I'll encourage my sis to post some of her nail arts hehehe.

Talk to you soon,

Suprise !

Just a little, fast, post for my sister (who's working hard while I'm doing that !)

I was missing my leopard manicure, so ... Here it is !

I used China Glaze - Lemon Fizz and Milani - Gold Glitz.

To do the leopard "skin", I used the best "nail art novice tool" ever created ! The Essence - Nail Art Pen ! For the girls who don't know this, it's like a paint pen but with polish, except that it is not polish, it's better ! It looks like polish but it's water soluble !!! No more mistake on your "just done" nails !

It is LEGEND ... wait for it ... DARY !

XOXO to my sister, who , I know, is gonna check the blog before I tell her to do it ;)

Enjoy your week-end you all.

Baby it's sunny outside

Hello ladies

I hope everyone is fine. Sorry I didn't have time to post sooner ! Anyway today I have for you a gorgeous polish from my bestfriend's collection: OPI - Baby It's Coal Outside (from the 2008 Holiday in Toyland collection). S was lucky to find this baby in south of France ;)

For those of you who are regular readers, you may know that I love black/vampy polishes... I couln't help but love this one ! It's gorgeous. Application was flaweless like always with OPI  and opaque in two coats.

Other news: I have finally discovered MUA and there's gonna be two swaps very soon, I'm excited. You'll see some pics very soon ! I may get some of my lemmings ;)

Anyway here's the polish:

So tell me what do you think of this one ? I'm off to law school right now, I'm gonna be late...
Have a great day everyone !

Swap - part. 1

Hey everyone !

I hope you're all enjoying your week-end. The first polish I chose from my swap with Lauren is a new polish from the Nicole by OPI Something about Spring collection. This one is called Iceberg Lotus and it's emerald glass fleck with blue duochrome. It's really shinny but my pics won't really show how much because it's really cloudy and it's raining today...

I used 3 coats for this one because it's very thin. I still can see some VLN but I don't care, the color is so gorgeous.

This is my first Nicole by OPI so I didn't know what to expect but I'm pretty pleased. The brush was easy to work with. the only low point is that I'm not that into the bottle shape, not ideal for storage but who cares ?!

Let's see the swatches, shall we ?

Hey everyone !

I'm so excited right now ! I've just received a package from Lauren over at Lacquer Addict. This was a first for both of us and this swap went perfectly well ! It was so much fun so THANK YOU SO MUCH LAUREN ! I'm gonna quote Lauren before letting you guys see the beauties she sent me: '' We are real bloggers now !''. LOL

I can't wait to try them. You can expect some swatches very soon.

*Dying* !

Accent mani

Hello ladies,

How is everybody doing ? It's really dark and cloudy out here today. I'm staying at home trying to work on my thesis which doesn't seem to inspire me...

Anyway today's NOTD is an accent mani. I love glitter polishes but I can't really stand the removing process...such a pain in the ***. That's why I think glitter accent manis are a nice alternative: you get to wear glitter polish with minimum trouble.

I used two polishes from my best friend's collection for this one. Thanks S ! ;) This is OPI Lincoln Park After Dark (2 coats... I love this polish so much !) and OPI - Sparkle-icious for the accent (3 coats and then 2 coats of SV).

Let's have a look:

What do you think ? I like this one a lot. What is your favorite accent combo ? I should try some more !

Hi ladies !

How are you today ? It's very sunny today out there so I chose an least a supposed holo. This is OPI - My Private Jet. You all know I'm sure that there are a least 4 différents versions of this one out there. I think I have the brown version which I hated the first time I tried. But it seems like I like it more and more each time I try it now. Even if it's not a charcoal holo madness like the first version, this color is pretty unique. And the application...flawless, opaque in two coats.

Do you have MPJ ? Are you a lucky owner of the original version ?

Can you ride a horse ?

Hello there !

OK, so my NOTD is China Glaze - Side Saddle from the gorgeous Rodeo Diva Collection. This is a browned plum with gold shimmer that covers great in two coats. You know I love vampys... and this one is a really pretty one ! Love it.

So sad there's no sun today here so you can't really see the gold shimmer. My pictures don't do this one justice. Anyway here they are:

Although I love this one very much, my fav from the Rodeo Diva Collection is Wagon Trail. Which one is yours ?

Crackle attempt #2... failed !

Hey there !

What's up ? So yesterday evening S. came to my house. We had such a great time together. We packed all the stuffs for my first swap with Lauren and then we finally painted our nails. Here's the result of that mani evening:

This is two coats of China Glaze - Something Sweet from the Up and Away Collection (one of my favorite collection ever I have to say) with OPI - Black Shatter.

Do you like it ? I don't ! I managed to work with the crackle much better the first time around. See the post here (I was right, THAT was beginner's luck !). This time I ended up with different paterns on each nail which I don't appreciate at all. I should have let the polish dry a little bit more before layering it with BS. And I should have been more careful with the tickness of the coats... Too bad !

Be sure, there's gonna be a new mani very soon ! ;)

Have a great (evening) day you all !
Come back soon

Going satin...uptdated with top coat !

Good morning (or evening...) dear followers,

Hope everyone is having a nice week.

I'm pretty excited because I'm planning on doing my first swap with the lovely Lauren over at Lacquer Addict and I have to say I can't wait to get my hands on the pretty polishes she got for me. Don't forget to check her blog and follow this new blogger ! ;)

Today's NOTD is Orly - Pruple Pleather from the Plastix Satin Finish collection. This is a cool blue-based purple polish that gets opaque in two coats. The formula was great although you have to be quick when applying it because it dries really quickly. Satin fnish is supposed to be just between glossy finish and matte finish but I can't see much a difference between satin and matte. Can you ?

I always choose matte/satin polish when I'm in a hurry or when I know I'm gonna change my mani a few hours after (because obviously satin/matte polishes don't last without chipping as long  as other finishes). That's right, I'm going to change my mani tonight when my bestfriend S. will come to my house and we'll enjoy our traditional ''Nail party''. So be prepared for another post tonight or tomorrow morning !

That being said let's have a look at what really matters : the polish. Here it is:

I hope you'll like it. I do anyway. It adds a little edgy-ness to my look of the day ;) Do you own polishes fom that collection ? What do you think of them ?

Have a great day everyone !

Jade's dupe

Hi everyone !

How are you guys ? I'm pretty tired so it's gonna be a short post today.

My NOTD is Catrice - Sold Out Forever. I have to say I'm pretty pleased with this one. The application was nice, two coats and it was done. SOF has a subtle shimmer like Chanel's Jade (which is maybe a little less subtle, but I can't compare as I don't own Jade). It's really pretty and fresh and I'll definitely be wearing this polish during spring/summer. It will probably look better with a little more tan ;)

The rules :

1. Answer these three questions:

When and how did you start your love for polish ?
It started about two years ago with a Chanel polish (Black satin) if I remember well. And shorty after that I went to the USA on vacation and bought many polishes. Until then I wasn't into nail polish and I only loved to wear sheer beige polish (eek...).
If you could choose to do anything in the world what would it be ?
I would love to travel all around the world with my family and friends and not to worry for anything.

What's your favorite love story ?
I'm not such a romantic person so I can't really tell...Let's just say I love happy endings ;)

2. Then tag bloggers your love:

Pimp My mani #1

Good morning dear followers !

First of all, royal_cyd and I would like to thank you all for being such great followers ! We can't believe we've reached 31 followers ! We're trilled, thank you so much ! ;)

Now the polish... for those of you who come here often you know that I get bored easily with a manicure and that I often try to renew my mani with layering or stampings. That's what I did today once again... and so I thought I could make a regular post of it. I've decided to call those posts Pimp My mani (lame I Do you think it's a good idea ? Are you interested in such posts ?

I was rocking two coats of China Glaze - Frostbite and when I saw this on Nidhira's blog I knew I have to give it a try. I had Essence - Glisten Up! for so long and never tried it so it was about time...

I added two coat of Glisten Up! on my current mani and voila, today's PMM:

Outdoors - direct sunlight

Outdoors - direct sunlight


It's really pretty and shiny, the green/teal flakies add a mermaid look to Frostbite that I love. Today it's sunny out there so the combo can really reveal itself, can't wait to get out of the house but for now I have to start my thesis in order to get my Master of Law. Exciting, right ?! :s

Let me know what you think about this combo and about the PMM posts ! I can't wait to hear your thoughts, ideas and comments.
Thanks for stopping by ! Have a nice sunday.
