While walking around, trying to find something to buy to Samantha I stumbled across OPI’s new Mariah Carey collection. I’m not really a fan of her so when I saw her face in the first store I ran away (it’s true! I didn’t look at the colors though), I did take a closer look in the second store and noticed this new formula:
OPI's liquid sand
As the OPI fan that I am, I decided that I would definitly try one of the shades! There are four so-called “stage”-polishes and four “studio”-polishes! The stage-ones being liquid sands and studio-ones being two shimmers, a glitter- and a shiny polish.
Took a picture of all the polishes in the collection while I was in Kicks today.
I went with Can’t Let Go, a grape purple shade since I absolutely adore the color (might be the side of me that loves Grape soda that is speaking). The texture is what makes this unique. While the base become a matt, gritty texture when dry, the typical OPI hexagon glitters and tiny glitters breaks it with their sparkle.
I like the shade I picked but if I could, I probably would’ve chosen The impossible (but it was sold out). The color is very pretty and the polish has star-shaped glitters in it!
I’ve worn it for about three days now and it hasn’t cracked along the edges but I’ve had to reapply on the sides since tiny pieces has fallen off! It’s not that annoying though.
Looking forward to what OPI will come up with next!
GOOD MORNING GUYS! :3 Last night I decided to do some water marbling with the nordic cap of Sweden-polishes I bought. They dried so fast that my pinkie and thumb looked really weird when I did it the first time so I had to redo them… the original idea was to have a base of red and then water marble with with black (sally hansen black diamond) and the see through polish. I failed miserably ;_;
So I just re-did it with orange and red, which almost doesn’t show on the red base unfortunately. The other three fingers look fine though =w= I tried swirling it a lot but it didn’t come out that swirly. I only did my right hand so I’ll try making circles later! :D
I chose red and orange because it matches my Santa hat, “Ho ho ho” doggy/kitty-collar and scarf!
Hi guys! Today I bought some Nordic Cap of Sweden products! Never seen them before but they were so cheap (10 SEK/1.50 USD/1.15 EURO)… so I got ten hehe >w< The sad thing about these products is that they don’t have any names but I’ll still but write down what they call the colors on their website.
We’ll start with the STARNAILS nailpolishes! From the left: Polish, Red Pink, Orange, Beige and Green.
‘Polish’ is transparent.
‘Red Pink’ has a red base with a really intense pink shimmer.
‘Orange’ is a bright pumpkin color.
‘Beige’ is a nude.
‘Green’ is actually a bright turquoise!
The first thing I noticed was that they were really runny in the bottle but when you put them on they don’t run all over the place at all. And the polishes are really opaque with just one coat. Here’s a picture of swatches with only one coat:
Conclusion: I like these alot. For being so cheap I didn’t expect much but they are good. They could’ve been a liiittle more creative with the names. When dried they have a very plastic/rubbery feel to them (don’t know if me gusta).
I got three out of the five available (the other two were brownish and I don’t really like brown on my lips). The colors are called Red, Pink and Purple. The first two are the colors they say they are but the “purple” one is a dark red.
Now, what I think of them… tbh they are really dry and super shimmery so they remind me of putting eyeshadow on you lips. When I have it on I got the instant feeling of “grandma” lips :/ Which isn’t good. Putting lipgloss on it makes a tiny different but I’ll see if I can work it haha.
Conclusion: Not so bright. Like putting eyeshadow on your lips. Very shimmery. They smell good though.
I don’t really have much to say about the lip glosses. They smell like the lipsticks and they do their job. The red one is just transparent while the light pink one has little glitter in it.
That is all I bought yesterday. Originally this post was supposed to get published yesterday but it got deleted. Q_Q It was a pain trying to remember everything I wrote but I hope you liked it!
My glossy box should arrive today so I might do a video + post later today! See you then! :D
As you might’ve notice from the title this post will be in Swedish.That’s because this only applies to Sweden so why not! :D
God morgon! Detta är första inlägget på svenska i den här bloggen och det var väldigt länge sedan över huvud taget. I alla fall! Igår tamp posten ner i brevlådan och med all reklam kom det nya numret av KICKS (alltså nr. 15) som gäller från den 15 Nov – 24 Dec. Du får tidningen som medlem och är du inte medlem så vet du snart lite erbjudanden endå! ;D
Det första som fick min uppmärksamhet var KICKSjulkalender. Konceptet: 50% på en utvald produkt varje dag under December till Julafton. Och erbjudandet gäller så klart bara just den dagen! Låter riktigt bra eller hur?
Det som fick mig att bli riktigt glad är att erbjudandet den nionde Dec. är Aussie 3 Minute Miracle 250 ml. Jag har velat testa den ganska länge och jag trodde bara den fanns på nätet för 250 kr (letade en gång men nu märker jag att om jag googlar produkten så är första sidan KICKS… vet inte hur jag gjorde första gången). Har bara hört riktigt bra saker om den och det blir ett inköp den nionde. Den går på 63 kr (ord. pris 125 kr)!
Over-all är det inte något mer som låter lockande (för mig då) förutom kanske Blowpro Blow Out Serious Non-stick Hairspray 332 ml (Tolfte Dec.). Det som kan nämnas är att det är tolv parfymer i kalendern och parfymer är inte precis billiga så är man sugen så kan man alltid kolla om någon faller en i smaken. Pris skillnaderna ser riktigt drastiska ut med 50% rabatt. Förutom parfymer (som faktiskt står för hälften av kalendern) finns ett antal mascaror, krämer, (ett) nagellack, (ett) torr schampo och såklart de två produkter jag nämde.
Klicka på bilden för att läsa och se produkterna bättre!
Som vanligt finns det otroligt många (fler) erbjudanden i KICKS tidningen men som den fattiga studenten jag är känner jag inte riktigt att de är värt pengarna ändå, vilket betyder att jag inte kommer nämna dem. Ni kan ju kolla allt annat för er själva~
Sista erbjudandet som jag kommer dela med mig av gäller bara för medlemmar. Och det involverar mitt favorit nagellacksmärke *trumvirvel (om du nu inte läst min blog innan)* OPI ❤ 20 % rabatt om du är medlem t.o.m. 24 dec. Mycket trevligt indeed. Blir nog ett inköp… eller två (vi får se vad budgeten säger).

It’s been a while but I’m back now (or maybe not, going to a friend for 5 days tomorrow c: but after that I’m really back and with an update!) and I’m here with water marbling! :D
So I rediscovered it yesterday while watching bautifulfreak on youtube. I got nail varnishes and long nails so I thought “finally”! When I actually discovered it I didn’t have any nails or colors and I was watching a rainbow tutorial. It was torture! D:
I used these nail varnishes:
Since last time I’ve gotten a new one! The Sally Hansen Diamond strength nail varnish in No 94 Black diamond. It’s a really pretty sparkling black. The rest are: OPI Just spotted the lizard, Kicks Lady blue and Depend nr. 049.
Now this is the first time I’ve done it so I’m not exactly satisfied but hey: practice makes perfect~ ^^
This is the first hand I hade. I used everything except OPI. I used tape on three of my fingers but I liked how the colors turned out on my skin so I just stopped using it! xD This hand screams “fun” while the other one’s “royal”.
I didn’t bother to remove the varnish from my hands before taking the photos and I apologize for that (it’s not like I’m going to go out with my hands covered in paint haha! I was just really fascinated in the beginning). But it’s pretty late and I wanted to do this as quickly as possible. :)
I like this hand more. The gold, black and purple make me think of royalty… and Alois Trancy from Black butler:
This was really fun and I highly recommend it. But I got a tip for you! :D Don’t skip the tape because it will get alot stickier than necessary.
Want to know how to do it? Watch one of the thousand tutorials on youtube. ;D
Hello everyone! ^^ This is a review of KICKS own brand of nailpolishes in LADY BLUE. When I first looked at the bottle the base color looked like a dark shade of brown but it’s actually purple, then comes the beautiful navy blue shine that made me buy it. The color outside the bottle isn’t really wow-ing me but it could be a little more fun alternative to black nails because the color is very dark but in sunlight you’ll get a blue shimmer.
The price was fine because I got a discount on it but without it I don’t think that I would ever buy this brand. The nail polish is priced like a somewhat good quality brand but it took really long to dry and I had to put on 3 layers. As clumbsy as I am my nails got jacks and dents all over. :<
I haven’t worn it for very long so unfortunately I don’t know how long it’ll stay on.
In the end I think that it’s a totally fine nailpolish (not just the right one for me). ^^
As I told you before I’ve bought a couple of nailpolish these past few days, so I thought that I would do reviews on them. ^^
The first ones are OPI‘s JUST SPOTTED THE LIZARD! and Isadora‘s graffiti nail top color SUBWAY GREEN. I do them at the same time because they fit so well together! :D
If you have read my previous posts you’ll know that I bought the OPI one first.
I bought it because I was totally blown away by all the colors in one single bottle. Green at the sides, gold in the middle and blue in the bottom. That’s because when the color is in the light it’s gold but in less light it’s green ^^ I have to admit that I got a little disappointed at first because when I tried it on, it was all sunny outside which made my nails gold without shades. Then I realised the light theory and I loved it. OPI dries very fast (which has made me kind of spoiled :<) and stays on for a long time! Although the price is a little much (almost criminal with all the lovely colors they have) I’m fine with paying for the ones I want the most because of the beautiful colors and quality.
I never tried the cracked nails until now because when the trend started I thought that the nailpolish was so expensive… and I didn’t have any nails! XD So when they were on sale I thought “why not?” and bought SUBWAY GREEN. It was the only color on sale and that’s probably because the color is kind of harsh in the bottle but on the nails it’s just a “normal” green color. It doesn’t take that long to dry (just a couple of seconds longer than OPI) and the combo fits nicely together ^^ I payed half the price for this one and I’m really satisfied.
Well I’ll be heading to bed now. I hope that you liked my first reviews ever! Tomorrow I’ll be reviewing Lady Blue so see you then! :D
I have to hurry up and “paint” my nails with some nailhardener before I fucking chew my nails off (I’m truly sorry if you think that it’s gross)… I can’t even help it! My fingers wander up, by themselves *___*’
And I only realise that I’m doing when it’s too late :’c
Because they’ve become long (for me), I don’t want to risk breaking them in any way D:
As I said… not that long but long for being me. Btw akward handposing.com >n>
Now on to the next subject!
It seems like wherever I turn I get my daily dose of piercing talk.
Androgenetics topic of the week is body modification! Mmm I really love all of them ;w; Gorgeous androgynous boys ♡
I can totally relate to what Em said. Once I turned 18, that’s when the f*cking wheel started spinning for real :3 Still I don’t do anything without my parents knowing… I feel that that would be very disrespectful.
And Yami… Yami ♡
He’s so wonderful (both in the personality- & apperence aspect)! And he has Chilean blood in his veins (just like me) : D I was really amazed that he got his first piercing at 13 y. old. Are there no laws about how old you got to be in Mexico? Or maybe he had his mother’s permission∼
EENYWAYYYS I’m just going to continue my obsession. BAI
