Back to business on Friday.

I am/was only needed at work on Monday and Friday this week so I’ve been chilling a bit (it’s needed because my hands are killing me). My friends seems busy so I have just been home and spent time with our mini-werewolf >w< It’s been nice. I don’t feel like going out either since I noticed that my public transportation-card ran out last week :c851557_144885162352417_697485609_n

I did get the nailpolish today though (and boy, did I get a surprise)! But mom took her phone with her before I could take the pictures so I’ll post it tomorrow~ Also got the notification that my Jbox order has arrived, but I’ll pick it up when the other package has arrived too.

It’s getting really cold now (love it ♥), really feeling the autumness~ Well, I’ll continue to watch The Big Bang Theory and I feel like making pancakes :3 See you tomorrow!yoyoyo

OPI liquid sand in Can’t Let Go.

As I mentioned here, the reviews are finally written! This is the second one, click here to see Lumene blueberry long-wear crystal eyeshadow in archipelago‘s review.

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.

IMG_0718Took 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.

DSC_0028I 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!

Swedish Glossybox December!

Hi guys, I felt that I couldn’t postpone this post any longer even though I haven’t made an video yet (I’ll make it when I can).

This month’s theme is “Glossy Anniversary” because Glossybox Sweden has existed in a year now. To celebrate they have products that are from brands that people have liked though-out the year. It’s exiting to see, especially since I have received only one box before this one! ^_^ Let’s start!

IMG_0393The box is silver and my box is really scratched. I have no idea what it went through but I’m glad it’s not me C; IMG_0395The usual card, grey ribbon, black tissue-paper with silverstars and a sticker with an art-deco diamond.

Let’s start with the products:

1. La Sultane de Saba Ginger Green Tea Body Lotion

IMG_0400

La sultane de Saba is a company from France that makes products inspired by oriental beauty rituals. This luxury lotion contains green tea and ginger. It has a light formula that the skin picks up fast. The bottle I got is 40 ml. and the full-sized product is 150 ml and costs 269 sek in Sweden. What I’ve picked up so far is that it has a very citrusy smell to it and that it isn’t sticky to your hands and gets absorbed really quick. I like scents that smell sweet and rich so this isn’t really something for me. It makes me think of dish soap. The formula is really great though! C:

2. Anatomicals The Showering inferno Hot And Fiery B-Movie Body Cleanser

IMG_0402This is the product that made the Glossybox smell good (just like the Aquolina body mousse in the previous box). Not noticeably if you didn’t think about it though. I only realized later haha! This is the yummiest shower gel I’ve ever smelled, it smells just like Coke! It seems like it gets quite a lot of praise and according to the GB card, it says that it’s one of the most appreciated brands during the year. The product I got is 150 ml. and the full-sized one is 300 ml. for 79 sek.

3. So Susan Micronized 8-Hour Eye Shadow Palette

IMG_0404IMG_0406This is a tiny eyeshadow palette that contains a highlighter, base and conture. So Susan is a newly launched brand and is cruelty-free (says so on the backside with two bunnies as proof! ;D). I’ve actually used this one and it stayed on the whole day. It’s really smooth to the touch and very pigmented. It’s the original product and it costs 129 sek.

4. Zoya nailpolish in Storm

IMG_0408Never tried a Zoya polish before and I had watched SimpleLittlePleasures on Youtube the day before so I was exited to try it. This color is called Storm and the first thing I thought when I saw the color was that it is similar to the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength polish in Black diamond. Now in retrospect the Sally Hansen one looks a little more grayish and the glitter in Storm looks bigger. Zoya also dries quicker. This is also a full-sized product and costs 149 sek. for 15 ml. I really like this product and would like to buy it in some other color!

5. ImPRESS fake nails

IMG_0411This product was the first thing I saw, it was peeking though the tissue paper so I pulled it out. I’ve heard Bunny (Grav3yardgirl on YT) talking about these type of press-on’s before but I’ve never tried them! The color is gorgeous but I can’t find the name anywhere! :c Looking through the tiny pamphlet I guess that it it “Message Me” but I’m not 100 % sure. Also worth mentioning is the variation of designs and colors! 24 designs are listed but it says that you can see all 36 styles on their website impressmanicure.com. They have plain ones, animal-inspired ones and flower ones ect. I will most likely make a review on these! I’m a little afraid of putting them on though. Just trying them on without taking of the plastic gives me the impression that they are huge! (Thinking about it… that was not intended as a pun haha!) They are really long and wide. xD I will try them on Christmas Eve anyway! ^_^

EDIT. I almost forgot! You also got a ‘little’ bonus in the box, that I’m really exited about! It’s a ViaPlay trial during two months. :D ViaPlay is a site you can stream movies, sport and tv-series on…it’s a less awesome Netflix. From what I’ve heard they don’t have that much in their movie/archive and are slow with updating movies. Still exited to activate my code! x3

So that was this month’s Glossybox. I hope you enjoyed! :D The Golden New Year Glossybox that I received simultaneously will also get a post but I will post it tomorrow! It’s getting late and I’m looking forward to some reading.

Good night guys and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Water marble nails: Rorange + Make-up of the day: Santa’s little helper!

Red + Orange = Rorange

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!

Nordic cap of Sweden haul.

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:

IMG_0366

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).

STARLIPS Lipsticks.

IMG_0357

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.

IMG_0368Now, 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.

Lipgloss

Skärmavbild 2012-11-30 kl. 09.39.01

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

Lady Blue review.

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). ^^
