I Love Nail Polish – Undenied

Hey girls!

Today’s been a bit of a nightmare, so I’m blocking it all out by posting. That seems healthier somehow than going crazy and shouting my head off 馃槈 these are photos I took a couple of weeks ago, but hadn’t had time to get them blog-ready since, so it’s about time!

You may have noticed that I have a bit of an obsession with the聽I Love Nail Polish Ultrachrome聽line. So when some new ones were brought out for Spring, I couldn’t resist getting them! Especially聽Undenied, which, since it has a burgundy-violet-purple-indigo shift, is right聽up my street, ya know? I love the colour range! It didn’t have the gold shift that聽ILNP聽talks about on their website for me; maybe it has to be swatched underwater for that. Me? I’m an air breather, so, ya know…

This is 3 coats (since 2 was a little patchy), over a clear base coat, and no top coat.

Has anyone else gone for any Ultrachromes yet? Are you happy with them?

Butter London Jaded Jack & tribal nail art stamping from MoYou-London

Happy Monday!

Who am I kidding? No-one likes Mondays unless they don’t work 馃檪 Still, here in France, Monday is nearly over, and I must say, I’m pretty glad about that 馃槈 so here’s a totally non-work-appropriate nail polish for you (yeah, I’m such a rebel!)

Butter London Jaded Jack

I’m not sure that I could really聽explain why, but I do love lime green nail polish! Whether I’m pale or tanned, I just love how it looks on my skin tone. So I couldn’t resist聽Jaded Jack by聽Butter London! Colour-wise, it packs an amazing punch, but without quite being neon. Continue reading

Her么me “World in Color” Jakarta

Hey honey bunnies!

Sorry for the radio silence this week, I am sooo tired! Not too much mentally, but just physically. Long hours at work + long commute + gym 3 times a week = not much time for nail painting 馃槈

But don’t worry, I haven’t been walking around with nudie nails! I’ve been wearing a stunning shade by聽Her么meJakarta from the World in Color collection. This shade was a gift from the gorgeous Sabrina. I really count myself as very lucky that she picked it out for me, because it is utterly gorgeous, and not available in France!

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 馃檪

I love聽I Love Nail Polish! It’s a little pricey, but totally worth it. So I’m trying to collect all of the聽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 馃檪

ILNP - Nostalgia -005

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

I used 3 coats over a clear base, and finished it off with a coat of S猫che 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 !

ILNP - Nostalgia -009 ILNP - Nostalgia -008 ILNP - Nostalgia -007 ILNP - Nostalgia -006

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) 馃檪

And here’s some more pictures!
