I just wanna apoligize to you guys for not being able to respond to you comments. I have, like a lot of people, some issue commenting on blogger. It's driving me nuts ! I've tried different things but none of them seem to work. Do you know how to fix this ? Blogger better be fixing this s*** really soon... 


Those numbers are impossible to remember...

Hey there,

What's up ? So today I have for you another Kiko polish. This is n° 346 (called Verdone Chiaro by Kiko) and it was missing on the haul pic, I totally forgot to put it in the pic. Anyway this is one of my favorite color from the bunch: a kakhi creme with a little bit of blue in it. My mom calls it celadon i that makes any sense to

Again, the application was flawless, 2 coats, perfect coverage. I love those Kiko brush too. Not as wide as OPI's but wider than China Glaze's, they make the application very easy I think.

Any opinion on n° 346 ? I don't have kakhi polish in my stash so I was really glad my sis picked this one up. Do you like kakhi polish or do you think their too fall/winter ?

Have a nice sunday you guys

Hello ladies !

I know it's been a while I haven't post but I'm not jobless anymore :D
So I have less time to do some nail art, and because of my job I almost stopped putting on funky colors on my nails ... Only red, pink, orange ... And of course I can't do too much nail art ... I'm so sad about that but I have a great job so I deal with it :)

Anyway, to forgive me, here are some nail arts you haven't seen ...

A soft pink mani with blue flowers and with dots.

Here is one of my favorite color and it is a neon !!! It's a Claire's polish that a friend of mine brought me back from the USA. It's named Flashy. In the dark it's purple and in the light it's pink ! I LIKE IT !!!

A mouse eating my cheese finger :)

Except that it is a fuzzy mouse because of the top coat ... I haven't waited enough time !

My first butterfly wing nail art on a sponged gradiant !

A sponged gradiant and pink/purple flowers.

That's it for the time but I promise to post more often :)

Kiko Haul + some swatches

Hey there,

As you probably know, my sis went to Berlin and brought us some Kiko...well not some... a huge haul actually. Here's a pic:

Kiko is a makeup brand based in Milano, Italy. So far I've only tested their nail polishes but let me just say they are pretty awesome.

I have a few swatches for you today (don't you worry there will be plenty more during the week-end).

The first polish I tried is Kiko - 340 (described as Celeste on Kiko's web site), a baby blue creme. It's perfect ! Seriously, the application was pretty good, two coats for full coverage, no shrinkage... It's a bit darker than OPI - What's with the cattitude ?

Then I tried another gorgeous polish: 311 (can't bear the number name thing... This one is described as Rosa Elettrico). This is a fuchsia with very subtle golden shimmers. Here again the application was flawless, the formula is really easy to work with. So far so good, Kiko totally nailed it with this two polishes. Let's hope the other one are as perfect as those two.

So what do you think so far ? Are you able to get Kiko where you live ? I don't and I can't help myself to think that's a shame... Fortunately, Switzerland has commun borders with Italy and Germany. And if you know Kiko, which is your favorite shade ?

Thanks for stopping by,
Take care

A really cute polish + me trying to do some nail art = Not so good

Hello lovelies,

Hope you're all doing great. Today I have for you a GORGEOUS polish... This is OPI - Rumple Wiggin' from the Forever and After Collection. It's a really pretty color, very femine. Perfect for spring. Too bad I only got the mini bottle... I should I've bought the regular size. Boohoo... Anyway here it is using 2 coats:

And here's what happen when I think I know what I'm doing when it comes to nail art.... (Please be nice ! lol)

I add to RW:
  • 1 coat of Essence Special Effect Topper in Mystic Mermaid (one of my fav layering polish right now)
  • some stamping using H&M - Bella's Choice, H&M - Blue My Mind and OPI - Dim Sum Plum.
  • 1 coat of Nicole by OPI - Let's get Star-ted (trying to get only the glitter and not the stars but as you can see, one got stuck...).

Now I'm too tired to do another mani so I'm gonna stick with this one until tomorrow.... Oh and my lovely sister is coming home from Berlin and she got us like 14 new Kiko polishes !!! I can't wait to try some new polish ! Stay tuned for those Kiko ;)

Ok so that's it for today ! I promise to post this week-end with some Kiko swatches !
Take care

Big Nails ?!

Hey ladies !

I hope you are all doing fine and enjoying those summery days ;). I've just written the conclusion of my master thesis so I figured the next best thing to do is blogging ! I'll give my thesis to my teacher tomorrow morning, let's hope he will be happy with it.

So, today I have for you a polish I'm sure you have seen a zillion times but I'm gonna show it to you anyway ! lol This is one of the famous ''sorbets'' from OPI's Texas collection. OPI's people are fools if they think we didn't notice that those polishes were actually jellies. It's not like they came out with something new here...

At first, I was a bit meh about those sorbets but the more swatches I've seen the more I was getting into those. My favorite is definitely Big Hair... Big Nails and that's exactly the one the lovely Olivia got me for our first swap. I'm so glad she did because I LOVE this polish. It's just perfect for spring/summer. It's really bright and glossy. This is like an orange red with some drops of pink in it and it looks even better on me now that I got some tan during my express trip to the South of France this weekend.

Stop talking, let's get into the pics. This is 3 coats of BHBN (I don't usually like to do more than 2 coats but with this baby it's no big deal at all, drying time was fast and because of the thin forumla you don't have to worried about the bed sheets marks).

What do you think about those OPI jellies (I can't call them sorbets..) ? Are you a fan of jelly polish in general or do you hate VNL ? I don't like VNL but for some reasons I don't care about them when it comes to jellies. Do you recommand other jellies from the Texas collection ?

Have a great evening everyone
Talk to you soon

Blingy accent

Hey there !

How are you doing ? I'm a little bit tired after a long day at the library. Can't wait for my master thesis to be over ! Right now I can't make up my mind about what to do after posting this. Going to bed ? Working out (but not too hard...) ? Working on my thesis again ? Watching TV ? Arrrrghh... What would you do ? I hate when I can't decide...

Anyway, it's really sunny today so I was rocking a blingy mani ;) This is two coats of OPI - Suzi Says Feng Shui from the Hong Kong collection (love that collection, perfect for creme polishes lovers !) and 2 coats of Milani One Coater - Gold Glitz. This polish is actually a one coater but I did two for the pics.

I love SSFS, the formula is perfect. It's like the blue sister of Jade is the New Black. And I was pretty impressed by Gold Glitz, I wish I could get more of those Milani One Coat Glitter. Which one is your favorite ?

Have a nive evening you guys !

Fancy Fuchsia Leopard

Hey ladies,
Long time, no post…. So sorry about that ! Anyway here’s my NOTD. This is two coats of Orly – Fancy Fuchsia. My lovely sister did a really cute leopard print on my ring finger. What do you guys think of it ?
Now about the polish…. It sucks. The color is pretty but the formula was a PITA ! It was really sticky ! One of the worst formula I’ve ever tried.
This is the only color I got from the Precious collection so I can’t tell you about the other polishes’ formula but they can’t be as bad as this one…
Anyway here’s the pics:

What do you think of the Precious collection ? Do you like it ? I have to say I wasn't to impressed by the color range...
Thank you for stopping by !
