I Love Nail Polish – Sirene

I Love Nail Polish - ILNP - Sirene - Collage

Hey ladies!

I hope everyone is having a better week than I am. Work is really tough right now. Long hours, and I have to try to keep a cool head when it feels like everyone else is freaking out. It’s pretty draining.

Still, on a more positive note, I have a gorgeous multichrome to show you again, by I Love Nail Polish. Sirene is also in the ultrachrome line, which means you don’t have to put it over a black base. My swatches are with no base coat, and no top coat either. It doesnt dry fast, but if you’re in a rush, a quick dry top coat will be your best friend! Continue reading

I Love Nail Polish – Nostalgia

I Love Nail Polish Nostalgia


Yep, I have another photo-heavy duochrome swatch post for you 🙂

I love I Love Nail Polish! It’s a little pricey, but totally worth it. So I’m trying to collect all of the Ultrachromes. I got Birefringence, Cygnus Loop, Mutagen and My Little Glacier and talked about them in this post, and today I have the fifth to show you, Nostalgia. As usual, totally bought with my own money, and if you like what you see, you can order it here 🙂

Also as usual, these swatches are not taken underwater. If any mermaids are reading, lucky you! Your nails must look great 😉

I used 3 coats over a clear base, and finished it off with a coat of Sèche Vite (although it dries shiny anyway). Nostalgia has a very original colour shift (at least, that I haven’t seen before!) : merlot-rose-copper-gold-green !

I only have 2 reservations about this polish – (1) you need 3 coats. Two coats remains visibly patchy; and (2) it does show brush strokes a little. So, neither are really deal breakers, but if they are a very big deal for you, then it’s best to know that before you pay $12.50 for the bottle (12ml) 🙂

And here’s some more pictures!

Valentines Nail Art for Luchessa and the Polish Alcoholic’s Contest

Happy Hump Day !

Luchessa and Sabrina of Polish Alcoholic are holding a Valentines Nail Art Contest… So here’s my entry 🙂

Bourjois - Bleu Modele & Rose Imaginaire - Valentines Day Nail Art-001

I used a white nail art pen by Barry M and two Bourjois nail polishes – Rose Imaginaire and Bleu Model. They are very cute colours, but they are absolutely AWFUL to work with! A shame, because I had bought them especially for this spring, but both are streaky, runny and hard to level out 😦

Still, at least I got some cute nail art done from them, or at least, I think so!

*closed* I Love You Guys! ILNP Giveaway

I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day. Actually, this year, I’ll be going out to a restaurant with the Bloke, but it’s pretty much the exception! When I was a teenager, it was fun, but I just don’t get excited over it any more. 

But, this year, I wanted to do something different, and tell you guys how much I love you! So, I’m holding a giveaway 🙂

The prizes were paid for by me, and this giveaway is in no way sponsored or endorsed by I Love Nail Polish.

Concours : Vernis Salomé de Brijits Digits

Concours chez Salomé d’On Pouvait Faire Autrement à ne pas rater!

Je n'ai jamais pensé qu'on pouvait faire autrement ...

Je tiens tout d’abords à m’excuser pour cette longue absence, mais je reviens avec un concours que j’aurais du faire depuis un bon moment déjà, mais je sais que vous allez très vite m’excuser !!!

Je ne sais pas si vous vous souvenez, il y a quelques mois de ça Cécile Anna du blog Nail Art Is Easy nous parlait de SON vernis fait par Brijits Digits, elle en avait même fait gagné un sur son blog !!! Je n’avais malheureusement pas eu la chance de le gagner. Mais j’avais pris contact avec Brijits pour savoir si elle accepterait de me créer mon vernis rien qu’à moi !! Et elle a dit oui, nous avons donc beaucoup échangé pour savoir quels étaient mes envies, couleurs, textures, paillettes, reflets … Et après plusieurs test et envoie de testeurs, nous avons fini par arrêter notre choix !!!

Ce que j’ai aimé…
