Dior - Purple Mix

The other Dior polish I bought two days ago. This one is a dark purple cream and it great too.
This is two coats of perfection.
So in other news I think this will be my last post before vacation. For two weeks I will be gone, and won't be posting. I will make it up to you when I get back.
Kisses & Hugs everyone!

Dior - Blue Label+CND Copper Shimmer

I went by Marionnaud's yesterday because I wanted to buy a mascara Dior Extase and I had a coupon for 7.5€, and they had an offer of buy two make up products get one free, so I chose two Dior nailpolishes. I love these polishes, they are amazing quality and pigment.
I choose two nail polishes from the last collection Blue Label and Purple Mix.
Today's polish is Blue Label a very dark blue cream polish. I loved it!! I know for you it's more a autumn polish, but I like this kind of shades on small nails like mine are now.
I applied two coats, and had some trouble with the brush, it's that kind of flat rounded brush that I don't get along with that well.
On top I put on a coat of CND Copper Shimmer.

Essie - Chinchilly

This was another great lemming for me, that Karen killed when I won her giveaway.
This is a grey cream that looks a bit brownish too.
I love the formula of these Essies!! and the application is so good too. I applied 3 coats, because I thought I still saw bald spots after 2 coats. But the bright side is, that even after 3 coats it did not shrink with Seche vite.
On top I applied a design from my BM 208 with a silver Flormar polish.

Pink Wednesday - Essie - Neo whimsical & Kleancolor Winter Wonderland

Hello Hello!!
Vacation is getting close, I  can't wait. We are going back to my country Romania - I miss it so much every day, and one week in Greece on the isle of Kos I love Greece too!!
So I am super excited, I've been working so hard, and I've had enough of it!!
Today's pink Wednesday is a polish I won in Karen's giveaway - Thank you Karen!!
It's a kind of dusty pink cream. This is two coats. The application is wonderfull as always, and the formula is great too.
The color doesn't suit me that much though. I added a coat of Kleancolor Winter Wonderland on top, which is a white shimmer base with small round multicolored glitter. This is a great polish to layer!! I love love love it, it goes well on any color.
It still stincks but I think this far this is my favorite Kleancolor glitter.
Check out the crappy photos:

Sephora n°70

This is other Sephora polish I got the other day, and this was not disappointing at all. It is a dark blue cream base with blue and purple shimmer in it, which gives it a kind of duochrome hint and overall looks more blue than purple.
It looks awesome in the regular version, and awesome matte, it becomes a suede.
This was two coats, and I can't find anything wrong with this polish. It's perfection.

Sephora n°71

I don't normally buy Sephora polishes, because I find them to be a bit overpriced 5€ for 5ml, but when I saw this bottle I fell in love.
It is actually not that cool on the nail though. It's silver shimmer with red shimmer mixed together, and when it applies it turns out pink.
The formula is great, and the application is too, I am not a fan of the brush though, it's the rounded tip kind.
It was opaque in one coat, but I applied two.
I thought it would look better matte so I applied a coat of Essence matte top coat, and I was right it does looks better matte.
Here are the photos:

Catrice - Hip Queens wear blue jeans! + Kleancolor Disco ball

Oh I have lots to say about these two...
Catrice is a brand I hadn't used until my trips to Lausanne, were I stumbled upon Coop supermarkets and found they carried Catrice, Essence and lots of other goodies.
I bought this one because of it's subtle little blue glitter.
It's a dark blue cream base, with very small blue glitter, it is similar to Mavala Smokey blue that I swatched way back here but it's not an amazing swatch. Be sure to click on the images because they are really huge and back then I hadn't quite gotten the hang of blogging.
I will do a comparison soon, and maybe even a reswatch of that Mavala, because those pictures don't do it justice.
Anyways like all Catrices this one is great too, application is easy, and formula is good. I applied two coats for full opacity.
On top I added Kleancolor Disco ball which is a clear base with blue and purple glitter. The formula on this one is ok too, the glitter spread evenly without any effort from my part unlike other Kleancolor glitters. This was only one coat, and as you already know by now, this polish stincks too.
I made a mistake though, after applying the polish, seeing that it was rather late in the evening, I went to bed, and  in morning woke up to find that my polish had some subtle scratches, and I had not taken photos right after the application. So that's why it looks a bit gritty and normally it is shinnier than what you see on the photos.

Mumu is falling asleep on the couch. Such a couch patato!

KIKO 338 + Kleancolor Siler lining

I promise I will stop with the Kikos.
This one is a lanvender colored cream polish. This was 2 coats and application was smooth, formula is great, but I think it need to dry a bit off before applying the top coat, because I didn't wait at all and had some shrinkage.
But everything is just great with this polish.
I don't think it looks that good on me, but it is a great color.
I added a coat of Kleancolor Silver lining which is a transparent base, with small silver glitter, and larger hex violet glitter.
I love the way these look together, and this glitter is amazing, it wasn't thick as the other ones, but it still stincks.
Anyways here are the photos, and again sorry for the lighting:
