Some Dollish Polish pretties


Here's some Dollish Polish swatches that I've been sitting on for a while now. I absolutely love Dollish Polish polishes and lately I've been making my collection bigger a couple of polishes at a time :)

Tänään vuorossa muutama Dollish Polish swatchkuva joita olen hautonut koneellani jo hetken aikaa. Itse tykkään Dollish Polish lakoista todella paljon. Lakat ovat laadukkaita ja upean uniikkeja. Nythän näitä lakkoja saa tilattua ilman tullimaksujen pelkoa myös ihan Suomesta CesarsShopista.



EXPECTO PATRONUM





"This is a milky white crelly polish with a hint of Mint Green, has iridescent flakies and varying size Teal Green holographic glitters for a magically enchanting manicure worthy of Hogwarts!"


This polish is like a breath of fresh air! I love the simple color combination and quality on this. Application was smooth and easy. No need to fish or place the glitters. This is two normal coats and HK Girl top coat.

Tämä lakka on aivan ihanan raikkaan näköinen! Yksinkertainen väriyhdistelmä ja loistava laatu hurmasivat minut välittömästi. Glittereitä ei tarvitse onkia pullosta tai asetella kynnelle ja lakka levittyykin erittäin helposti sekä tasaisesti. Kuvassa kaksi normaalia kerrosta lakkaa sekä HK Girl pikakuivattaja.



PURPLE NURPLES





"Inspired by the Cartoon Network's Chowder, this neon purple jelly has tons of glitters, ranging from hexagons, squares, and circles, all in varying shades of periwinkle, purples, pinks, magenta, and blue/green iridescent glitters."


This awesome jelly is so juicy and squishy! Such a vibrant purple glitter bomb, a jelly polish at it's most perfect form! The formula is quite sheer so if you're not a fan of multiple coats of jelly goodness like I am I suggest you layer this on top of a creme polish. The application is flawless and you can apply this so thin that four coats seen on the photos really weren't a problem at all. Just created amazing depth and squishy-ness (yes, that must be a real word :P). This is four very thin coats and HK Girl top coat. (This was a hard one to photograph accurately so I did adjust the colors on the photos to make the polish look more like it does in real life).

Ihanan mehukas, lähes neon violetti jelly glitterpommi. Tässä lakassa on täydellinen jelly koostumus jota kuuluu kerrostaa kauniin lopputuloksen saavuttamiseksi. Lakka levittyy erinomaisen koostumuksensa ansiosta erittäin ohuesti ja runsaasta glittermäärästä huolimatta myös tasaisesti. Kuvassa neljä ohutta kerrosta Purple Nurples lakkaa ja HK Girl pikakuivattaja. (Tämä lakka oli todella vaikea kuvata oikeanlaisena ja sen vuoksi olen myös säätänyt kuvien väriä kuvankäsittelyohjelmalla saadakseni lakan näyttämään enemmän todellisuutta vastaavalta).



ROCKIN' RAINBOW SHERBET





"A pale pink crelly, jammed with tiny white squares, white stars, and a mix of neon pink, green, purple and orange hexagons and squares."


This one has such a delicious color combination, perfect for summer! One of those cheerful fun polishes that put you in a good mood :) Application was good and this was easy to apply thinly so you can layer it for a nice sandwich effect. I suggest you turn the bottle upside down before application to help get the stars out of the bottle. This is three thin coats and HK Girl top coat.

Nude crelly jossa mukana valkoisia tähtiä ja pieniä neliöitä sekä eri muotoista ja mallista neon pinkkiä, vihreää, violettia ja oranssia glitteriä. Hauska ja kesäinen väriyhdistelmä! Pullo kannattaa kääntää hetkeksi ylösalaisin ennen levitystä, jotta tähdet tarttuvat helpommin siveltimeen. Kuvassa kolme ohutta kerrosta Rockin' Rainbow Sherbet lakkaa ja HK Girl päällyslakka.

Delush Polish - Mad Top Hatter Duo


So today I have a glitter topper duo from Delush Polish layered on the OPI cremes I showed you on yesterday's posts.

Star Gazer is neon glitter mix on a clear base. This applies nice, smooth and even. You can layer this over a lot of different colors. This time I chose OPI Where Did Suzi's Man-Go? and I think they looked just perfect together! This is such a fun polish :)

On this mani I used two thin coats of Star Gazer over OPI Where Did Suzi's Man-Go? and one coat of HK Girl top coat.


Tänään siis vuorossa jokin aika sitten Suomeenkin, CesarsShopiin myyntiin tulleen Delush Polish indiemerkin Mad Top Hatter Duon lakat Star Gazer ja Two Bees in a Pod. Nämä kaksi glitter topperia on yhdistetty eilisissä postauksissa nähtyjen OPI cremejen kanssa.

Star Gazer lakka sisältää neonglitteriä kirkkaalla pohjalla.  Lakka on todella tasaisesti ja hyvin levittyvä eikä glittereitä tarvitse pullosta sen suuremmin onkia. Tätä voi käyttää todella monen eri värisen lakan seurana. Tässä se on yhdistetty OPI Where Did Suzi's Man-Go? cremen kanssa ja lopputulos on mielestäni tosi nätti ja raikas.

Kuvassa siis kaksi kerrosta Star Gazeria OPI Where Did Suzi's Man-Go? lakan päällä sekä HK Girl pikakuivattaja.






Two Bees in a Pod is a lovely black and yellow (hence the name) glitter mix with some holographic glitter to bring on the sparkle. I layered this with OPI Alpine Snow white creme to really make the glitters pop. This already looked very good with just one layer but since I always need my glitter fix I added a second coat. Application was good and smooth. This is very packed with glitter so it's easy to get the coverage you need without having to apply too many layers.

On this mani I used two coats of Two Bees in a Pod over OPI Alpine Snow with HK Girl top coat.



Two Bees in a Pod on raikas kelta-musta glitterpläjäys jossa mukana myös hologlitteriä tuomassa hiukan extrasäihkettä. Nimensä mukaan tästä tulee mieleen ampiaiset :P Lakkasin tällä OPI Alpine Snow valkoisen cremen päälle. Tämä näytti tosi hyvältä jo ihan yhdellä kerroksella, mutta glitterharakan oli vanhasta tottumuksesta lisättävä vielä toinenkin. Lakka levittyi hyvin ja tasaisesti. Tässä on mukana niin paljon glitteriä, että pääset nopeasti haluamaasi lopputulokseen peittävyyden suhteen.

Kuvissa kaksi kerrosta Two Bees in a Podia OPI Alpine Snow lakan päällä sekä HK Girl top coat.

New Year's Eve Jindiefest!


Hello everyone!! I want to celebrate New Year's Eve by showing you some nail polish swatches of my favorite indie brand, Jindie Nails. These are all older polishes and I believe most, if not all are still available.

Application and formula on all of these was good. Swatching these reminded me once again why I love Jindies so much. All of these are different and still there is this Jindie look and feeling to them :) Jindie Nails polishes are available at jindienails.com and international customers can find the stockists by clicking here.

Usual indie glitter application instructions apply.

- Make sure polish is well mixed before the application
- To help getting the bigger glitter pieces out of the bottle it's recommended to turn the bottle upside down for a bit
- Let each coat dry for a bit before applying the next to avoid dragging the bigger glitter pieces from the previous coat.
- You can use a dotting tool or an orangewood stick to place/separate the glitter if necessary.
- You might want to use a product like Glitter Food or two coats of top coat for a smoother result.

And remember that the application on these glitter bomb indies is not always as easy as your regular nail polish. To get smooth and beautiful result might sometimes take some practice. I know I didn't always get it right for the first times I tried applying chunky glitter bombs :)


Top coat on all these manicures is of course HK Girl. So here we go!



Candy Land Remix (three coats and two coats of top coat)





Zomboy (two coats and  top coat)






Swoon (three thin coats and top coat)





Pretty Penny (three coats, no undies and top coat)






Moon Walk LE (two coats and two coats of top coat)





Live Out Loud (three coats and top coat)





Water 4 Elephants (two coats with two coats of top coat)






Femme Fire (two coats with two coats of top coat)





I have now swatched all but one Jindie Nails polishes I own. I love all my Jindies and can't wait to see what Jen has up her sleeve for 2014!


***Zomboy and Candy Land Remix were sent for review. Femme Fire and Water 4 Elephants were gifted to me. Live Out Loud, Pretty Penny, Swoon and Moon Walk LE were purchased by me. HK Girl top coat was gifted to me.

Polish Addict Nail Color - Beach Cabana


TGIF and I have just the polish to put you on that relaxed sunny summer weekend mood :D This is Polish Addict Nail Color indie brand's Beach Cabana. A colorful blend of neon purple, neon pink and neon green glitter on a nude crelly base.

On this mani I used three thin coats of Beach Cabana, coat of Glitter Food and G & G HK Girl top coat.








Beach Cabana applies perfectly and the crelly base is smooth and even looking on the first coat. The great formula made it very easy to build up the sandwich effect with three coats.

This was my first experience with Polish Addict Nail Color and I'm very happy with the quality. Polish is beautiful, formula is perfect and application was flawless. Now I can't wait to try the other colors sitting on my "to be swatched" shelf :D

Polish Addict Nail Color is available at their own webstore and us international ladies can do our shopping at Mei Mei's Signatures. You can also follow them at Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Glam Polish - Star Candy (Mei Mei's Signatures exclusive)


Hello again :) Today ended up being another two posts day. I have so many cool polishes to review and show you that I think there will be a few two posts days ahead.

This time I have a fun and bright glitter topper from Glam Polish. This neon explosion is Mei Mei's Signatures exclusive and you can't buy it anywhere else. Star Candy has different shapes and sizes of glitter in several neon colors. It's bright and fun and can be layered over a lot of different base colors. I chose two different ones to try it with.

First I layered it over Delush Polish It Takes Two To Mango. This is two coats of Star Candy and G & G HK Girl top coat.





Second I tried it over a black creme cos I really wanted the colors to pop out. This is a coat of Color Club Where's The Soiree?, two coats of Star Candy and G & G HK Girl top coat.






Application was very good and glitters came out of the bottle easily. Formula is a little thin and runny but as long as you make sure not to have too much polish on the brush it applies just perfectly.

This can be bought from Mei Mei's Signatures along with a lot of other goodies. Service is always great and friendly. Shipping has always been fast but this time it was super fast, five days from Singapore to Finland. Excellent if you ask me!

Jindie Nails - She Blinded me with Science


Late Saturday post for me cos I've had a busy day again. I just really wanted to show another new Jindie Nails summer shade to you guys. This is She Blinded me with Science and it has an insane (in a good way) amount of glitter in it.

Here's the description from the Jindie Nails website: "It has a pale pink crelly base with multiple sizes of neon, holographic and metallic dots, squares, diamonds, rectangles and hex glitters.  This polish features small, medium and large silver holographic dots, small & medium & extra large matte black dots, large metallic turquoise dots plus lime green large metallic dots, white dots and moons plus matte gray moons". 

Yes, as I said, insane amount and it's so cool! Jen is truly a genius when it comes to creating these amazing glitterbombs. Like all of her polishes, I absolutely love this one too. I looked at the bottle and just knew I would love it. So, so cool!

This is three thin coats of She Blinded me with Science, a coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and G & G HK Girl top coat.









She Blinded me with Science has the same excellent crelly based formula as the other new summer shades so application was a piece of cake. There's so much glitter that I let some of it fall back to the bottle to avoid getting it all stuck together to a one big lump. I also turned the bottle upside down to help get out the bigger glitters.

Jindie Nails polishes are available at www.jindienails.com. International customers click here to find a distributor that works the best for you. Jindie Nails can also be found from FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

Jindie Nails - Candy Land (Original)


Today I have a classic Jindie Nails polish for you, Candy Land (Original). This must be one of the most famous Jindie Nails polishes and for a good reason. It's just awesome! White crelly polish with a lot of different size hex glitters in several neon colors. It's so bright and fun!

This is three thin coats of Candy Land (Original), a coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and G & G HK Girl top coat.







I have read that some people had issues with the application but I experienced none. White crelly base applied very smoothly and evenly. I turned the bottle upside down for a bit before application and rolled it lightly. The neon glitter is very thin and sometimes the pieces get stuck together. If a big lump of glitter comes out of the bottle I just drop it back in there and dip the brush again. That way I had absolutely no trouble with the application.

Such a pretty polish!

I have a lot of Jindie Nails swatches coming up soon. Just received several bottles today, including some of the new summer shades and I'm gonna start working on the swatches asap :D

ABC Challenge - Y is for yellow


Only one day late this time :D Hopefully I get the last ABC post up in time next week. Wow, I just can't believe we are almost done with this challenge. I'd be super upset if we didn't have another really cool one waiting for us in a near future. Our group is so much fun and I've got to know some amazing ladies along these few months :)

This Y week kinda sneaked up on me. I have been under an impression that I have plenty of Y polishes and I'm covered for that. Now that the week is finally hear none of my Y polishes really called my name. Not even the untried ones. Bleh! So I decided to go with an oldie but goodie. Color Club Volt Of Light is the only well behaving yellow I own. It is very sheer though and requires at least three coats. But I don't see that as a huge problem since it also applies really thin. This is a neon shade and dries semi-matte.

This is three coats of Color Club Volt Of Light with G & G HK Girl top coat.




Volt Of Light has a lot of fine green shimmer and it kinda reminds me of those neon yellow markers that you use to highlight parts of text in your school books. IRL this is screaming bright neon and really glows! This would also make a great base for some nail art. I'm just so busy with all the house stuff that I left it be and just enjoyed the super bright neon yellow on it's own.

Now it's time to go check everyone else's Y manis :)
