George - Indigo Dazzle

I am seriously loving these George polishes. This one is a duochrome goodness a bit like royal velvet from Orly, I'm not sure but I think they are very similar, maybe even dupes.
So application was perfect, formula is good, and the brush is ok, not great, but ok.
It needed two coats to be opaque, and on top I added a matte finish from Essence.

Stylish blogger award

I got this award from Gotham Polish - I love her blog, she had such a good idea to reveal fun facts about New York all the while doing posts about polish.

1. I wear my watch on my right hand.
2. I love eating fries with ice cream
3. I eat hot dogs with milk
4. I watch Friends non-stop.
5. I like to go out to clubs and talk to the bartender
6. I love kir royal
7. I am always on a marriage forum even though I got married a year ago.

I want to tag everyone who wants to do this!

Models Own - Golden Peach

For the first time I was able to try Models own thanx to Caroline from Caroline does nails.
This is a gorgeous orange cream base with golden shimmer in it as it's name suggests.
It's opaque in two coats, and dries off pretty quickly, application and formula is just right, and the brush is ok too. Not the best brush ever but it's ok.
Since yesterday I received my new Bundle Monster plates !!! yeyeye!! and by the way they are gorge!! I thought I'd try them out, so I applied a design from plate number BM 221 with a special Konad polish. And to top it off I did french tips with Sinful Colors - Mint apple
Here are the photos:

Nicole by OPI - I'm a belieber

Another great polish from my swap with Carolina, and as it turns out it's part of the Justin Bieber collection.
This is a cream purple, and it took 3 coats to get it opaque. The brush is just like on the Diors, so I like it, I find that it makes application a lot easier, because it follows the shape of the nail.
I think two coats is good too, but I still didn't find it opaque enough, but on the bright side it dries super fast.
On top I applied a model from my Bundle Monster BM11 plate with China Glaze Sci fi.
Here is the result:

Pink Wednesday - Wet'n'Wild - Dreamy Poppy

Hey guys guess what it's Wednesday again, and on Wednesdays we wear pink!!
I am so loving this!!
Today's is a lovely cream bright pink I got in my swap with Carolina.
It applies a bit on the thick side but I had no problem with that, no cleaning up after either. The brush is really thin, but I like it!!

On top of my ponk polish I applied some clouds with my Konad plate m79, and special white konad polish.

Sinful Colors - Fig

I have another polish from Carolina today, it's a beautiful Sinful Colors. As you all already know I love Sinful Colors, I find them to be a pretty good quality polish, for a good price.
This one is a purple cream with fuchsia pink shimmer.
It applied a bit on the thick side, but there were no problems, I had just a bit more cleaning up to do after wards. This is too coats and top coat.
I wanted to do something on top, but since today I had to go to a meeting with a new client, I had to keep it on the mellow side.
So here are the photos:

China Glaze For Audrey

Hey everybody!!
Hope you all had a cool weekend and a nice Easter, if you celebrate, I certainly did - I was home and saw my friends, had a good time with them and my family.
I am so close to 100 followers so stay tooned I will be having a giveaway, my first one.
And today's polish is an beautiful gorgeous blue that I wore for the whole Easter weekend, and that I found at Cyra Lydo on rue de Rivoli. These shops sell China Glaze and Peggy Sage at acceptable prices, CG- 4,5€ and Peggy Sage for 4,33€. They don't have so many shades but I did manage to fin some stuff.
Anyway For Audrey is a polish I've seen on lot's of blogs, and since I love Audrey Hepburn, and I love blue, it is a normal choice for me. It's a Tiffany's blue cream polish, the formula is just great, and application like wise.
After 3 days I had some tip wear but no chips.
Here are the photos - these are after the three days of wear:

Barielle - Gelt me to the party

First of all Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates it!! I do!!
Another first for me - Barielle, with the help of Carolina!!
This is a dark golden shimmer, it was opaque in two coats, the formula, application and brush were all great, but the colour does not suit me, it makes my skin looks a bit dirty. Otherwise a very pretty polish, and the bottle is square just like I like them.
So here are the photos:

OPI - Russian Navy Suede

Yet another great polish from my swaps with Carolina, I was thinking of buying this one myself but when I opened her package there it was.
So as you read this I am probably already in my country, because I have gone to visit my parents for Easter. We are orthodox and this year Catholic Easter and Orthodox Easter are in the same day, so I have Monday off!! Yeeyy!!
I am going to see my dear dear friends this evening, so I can't wait!! I haven't seen them since Christmas!!
Onto the polish, it's a beautiful dark blue, and silver shimmer suede polish, so you can't apply any top coat with this. But the finish is just so beautiful!! I wore this for almost three days and I did not get any tip wear!! I forgot the bottle at home as I was away on my weekend, and did not take any photos of the bottle, and I forgot to apply some top coat to show you how it looks like shinny. So I basically forgot almost everything.
And now here are the photos:
