One coater ahead !

Hello ladies,

How are you doing ? It's freezing out there you have no idea ! I'm all into dark polish these days. Seems like fall is already here. :( The good news is that I have a ONE COATER for you today ! The application was flawless.  And the color is absolutely GORGEOUS ! 

The polish I'm talking about is no other than H&M - Envy Me. Here are the pics:

Look at that amazing teal flash ! What do you think ? Pretty huh ?! Have you tried some H&M polishes ? They're really good quality polishes. Do you have a favorite one I should try ? Let me know !

Take care and have a lovely week !

Jade Is The New Black

Hey everyone,

How are you doing ? I just had the most lovely evening with my best friend S: Junk food, home made dessert and mani+pedi. Awesome girl time <3

I used one polish from S collection for today's mani. This is an oldie but goodie: OPI - Jade Is The New Black. I know all of you have seen this polish a lot out there but I can't help showing it too.

The application was perfect in 2 coats. I love that color so much, this is the perfect green creme if you ask me. I know it's more of a fall color but you should see what the weather is like these days in Switzerland... it's cold and rainy. Feels like fall is already here...

Opinions on this one ? Another green polish I should try ?
I'm off to bed now, I'm really tired.

Have a nice day/evening you guys.

Kiko - 300

Hey there,

What's up ? Did you guys enjoy your week-end ? Today was a lazy day for me and as it was pouring down, I thought I could use some darker polish for the day. Well, I have been mistaken... In the bottle, Kiko - 300 looks like a dark green teal with silver shimmers. On the nails, it's more of a blue polish with a teal flash. It's beautiful anyway ! Oh and the best part ?! Application ! I highly recommand Kiko polishes. These are a amazing polishes for great value. The brush made the application really easy and the formula is just perfect. I used 2 coats for this mani.

So I'm not rocking a dark color like I thought but I enjoy it anyway. Opinion on 300 (still hating Kiko's names...) ? Thoughts ?

Have a nice sunday you guys !

Check This Out !

Hey lovelies,

Almost the end of the week. What are your plans for the week-end ? Do share ! ;) There's an outdoor festival in Montreux so I'll probably be there having a few drinks and enjoying the last day of that festival. 

I'm all into bright colors for summer and I wanted to wear a green polish so here it is: Essence  Colour & Go in Check Me Out. I would describe it as a grass green creme polish. It has a great formula, opaque in 2 coats. Those Essence polishes are quite good and so affordable. Which ones are your favorites ?

Are you into green polish ? This one is pretty but I think I prefer weird colors like OPI - Who The Shrek Are You ? Or American Apparel - Neon Green which you'll see some swatches of here soon ;)

Have a nice evening/day !
Take care

Le Fric C'est Chic

Hi lovely readers !

How are you doing ? I hope you're all enjoying this week-end. I have great news (well for me, at least)... I'll most certainly go to the States in October ! I have to plan the trip but I'm thinking about going to NYC and to Miami. Yeaaah ! You know what that means....Nail polish shopping !!! 

Anyway, until I go to the States, I have to pick polish in my actual stash (which can really use some new polishes but that's just my opinion...) so for today I've chosen a polish from Hello Kitty. This is Le Fric C'est Chic and it's a silver foil with what look to me like almost holo glitters.

The application was not so good and the cleaning part not so easy. This is two coats:

I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of foil finish but what's for sure is that this one shines like crazy in the sun ! 
I'm off now. Let me know what you think of this one !

Have a great week-end

My choice...for today at least

Hey there,

How are you doing ? Hope you are all ok !

I chose an H&M polish for this NOTD. I was pretty impressed by the quality of H&M polish (except for those 4 mini-polishes pack which totally suck). This one is called Bella's Choice and is a turquoise creme which is a ONE COATER. A one coater, can you believe it ? I applied 2 coats but a thick one would have been enough !

I'm not sure this color is a nice choice for my skin tone but apart from my personal taste I have absolutely no complaints about this H&M polish. Good job H&M !

What do you think ? What is your favorite turquoise polish ?

Have a great day/evening you guys !

Let's Meet, shall we ?

Hey everyone,

How are you doing ? I hope you're enjoying those first days of summer. Sorry about le lack of post, I couldn't find my camera ! I also took some exams... but now it's over and I officialy have a Master of Law ;). That's probably not so interesting for you to know so let's get into what really matters here: nail polish !

Now that summer is finally here, I really like to wear bright colors. Today I'm rocking Sinful Colors - Let's Meet. I won this in a giveaway hosting by Dionela over at Short and Sweet Nails so don't forget to go check out her blog and follow 'cause she's doing an awesome job !

Let's Meet is a yellow shimmer polish which is a bit on the sheer side. I used 3 coats on the pics. Despite the sheerness, I have to admit that I quite like that color. Maybe next time, I'll try to layer it over a yellow creme polish for more intensity.

The application was good, I like the brush, it allows a precise application. My mom bought a SC polish when we were in the States 2-3 years ago and the brush seemed thiner. I don't know if it's just me or what but if it's really a new brush, I like it better.

What do you feel about yellow polish for summer ? Any opinion on Let's Meet ? Also don't forget to enter our 150 follower giveaway ! 

Take care.
