Radiantly Royal

The last polish that I received from Hypnotic Polish is a Smitten Polish color, and it's a sparkly and oh so squishy blue!

I'm wearing it without any undies on my swatches, and this is 3 coats with top coat. If you don't like the visible nail lines, you could of course just layer it! But I didn't mind it here, it's so squishyyyy! And that sparkle is just beautiful :) It really matches its name!
It's a sheer, bright blue base (as you can see, it looks quite a bit darker in the bottle) packed with very fine glitter, it applies easy and you get good glittery coverage. It did need a little top coat to get a smooth result, but it's no top coat eater at all.

Lovely color! And I have to say, they were all new to me but I enjoyed every brand that Hypnotic Polish send me :) I'll be afk the next week or 2, take care for now and hopefully cya after! ♥

She's a flowery cactus!

Hi all :) Today's polish is the kind of polish that just has "stamp meeee!" written all over it, and so I did!

Glitter Gal She's Cactus with Konad Green and MoYou-London Pro collection 06

The base color that I used for this mani is a fun, bright green color, but my camera had a hard time with it. Normal light pics turned out way too mint, so I'll stick to sunlight swatches. The Konad Green pulled up the green a bit more in the polish, that's why the base looks a bit different there than on the more minty swatches below :)

My swatches are without top coat, and this polish applied in 2 easy coats, which was a bit surprising tbh! With these kinda creme colors I automatically assume it'll need 3 coats to give an even coverage, and after the first coat it looked like this was no exception. But the second coat was enough already, nice! Glitter Gal is another brand that you can find at Hypnotic Polish, until the webshop opens, you can find their polishes also in their FB Shop.

OPI Celebrates the Muppets with Limited Edition Nail Lacquers Inspired by Disney’s New Film Muppets Most Wanted

OPI announces the launch of eight new limited edition nail lacquers inspired by Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted. With an all-star cast including Kermit the Frog, Constantine, Ricky Gervais, Miss Piggy, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey and the whole Muppet gang, this family comedy is directed by James Bobin and written by Bobin and Nicholas Stoller. Muppets Most Wanted opens in theaters on March 21, 2014.
 “The Muppets are a fun-loving, colorful cast of characters. These eight new nail lacquers were inspired by their latest adventures in Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted, which include a glamorous international stage tour – and lots of surprises,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP.  “Fashionable Miss Piggy is represented through soft pink, peach and pearlescent hues, as well as a frosty sapphire blue – Miss Piggy’s Big Number – to match her fabulous tour gown. The remaining four shades highlight the film’s unexpected elements and include a color-shifting mauve and three sparkle-packed lacquers – including my personal favorite Gaining Mole-mentum, a gold and rose chunky shredded glitter.”
Muppets Most Wanted by OPI includes the following shades:

A Hint Of Love

Essence A Hint Of Love has a label on the cap that says "Our Favorite", but is it mine too? I can be short about that: yes, yes it is! :)

It's not as unique as the new Over The Rainbow or as fun as the Dalmatians effect, in fact, it doesn't feel so unique at all. And a quick look at my swatchsticks shows that it's actually very close to Essence Glamorous Life! But I just love such a rich, vibrant red/pink color, that applies very easily, covers in 2 coats and gives this kinda result ♥ Thanks for looking and take care!

Dotty Girl & Sweet Talk

Hi guys! I already showed you a Dance Legend polish the other day, one of the brands that will be sold by the soon-to-open webshop Hypnotic Polish, and today I have 2 more polishes of brands they'll be selling (and if you can't wait, they're already selling through their FB shop!). These brands are both new to me as well, in fact, I received 5 polishes all from brands I never tried before, and so far I'm loving them all! I'll show the last 2 sometime soon as well, but I'll start with these 2 cuties :)


El Corazon 423/85 Dotty Girl

El Corazon 423/85 Dotty Girl

Dotted Girl is from El Corazon's Dalmatians collection, and I'm impressed with this polish! It applied really smooth and covered in 2 coats. I'm wearing top coat on my swatches but it didn't dry very gritty at all, you could wear it without top coat as well if you don't mind a little bit less smooth & shiny finish. Very girly pink but with a unique twist, perfect for Spring!



Rainbow Honey Sweet Talk

I'm wearing 3 thin coats of Sweet Talk here, but you could go for less if you prefer a more squishy look. I did finish with top coat, but it's no topcoat-eater at all and even with 3 coats, the end result was pretty smooth on itself already. I didn't have to fish for glitters, the polish is packed with them and the application was fine. Rainbow Honey's Sweet Talk is from the Sweet Talk collection, and the white base is filled with red, purple and grey-ish glitters combined with a hot pink shimmer. Loved this way more irl than on my swatches, and both these brands made me curious for more! :)

China Glaze Sea Goddess

Hey all! Today I have a review of China Glaze's Sea Goddess collection for you, and here's what the preview said:
"Discover the hidden treasures of the ocean this spring with China Glaze® Sea Goddess. Six vibrant matte and glistening glitters take you from the sandy, sunny shore to the depths of the sea where the mermaids play."
I don't know about you, but these do make me think of mermaids, and they also get me in the mood for Spring! With an ocean theme you could of course also go darker, I'm thinking of rich blues and coral colors, but this way it works too! The colors have this happy and playful feel to them, I think they capture the theme well :)


I used 3 thin coats for my swatches, although several of these cover fine in 2 normal coats as well. I just think the texture comes out best when using several thin coats, and letting each coat dry in between as well. I swatched each polish in daylight, sunlight and lamplight, check them out below!

Dance Legend #48

Morning all! The polish that I'm showing today is one of the most unique polishes in my stash, or well, a lot of polish in my stash is unique, but I'm sure you know what I mean anyway! Duochrome meets holo, in a gorgeous mix that applied easy and smooth in 3 thin coats ♥ Needless to say, it was near impossible to sort out photos and pick just a few! And I really wanted to show all sides of this polish in various light, and doing so in just 2 or 3 pics? Nahh :) So I hope you won't mind a little picspam! ^^ My swatches are without top coat.
