Catherine 267 Passionfruit swatches and review

PR sample

Hi beauties!

Today I would like to show you 267 Passionfruit from the Catherine Pacific Collection. Passionfruit is a beautiful deep purple shimmer colour that is right up my alley!

The challenge was to show the polish in a summery scene, which was indeed challenging as the weather has not been very summerlike so far. But I caught a little bit of sunlight recently, and it was worth it to show the shimmer of this beauty! And for the even more summerly look, I tried a floral stamping and I actually liked how it turned out!

Application was great, two easy coats was all I needed. The wear was satisfying, I got 3 full days out of it. Removal was easy (no staining). So, I’m very happy with this polish and will definitely wear it again!

The pics below show Passionfruit in two coats with one coat of HK top coat.

I hope that summer will be here soon – I desperately need some sun! Happy weekend to everyone!

Thank you, Catherine, for providing Passionfruit!

Colors by Llarowe – Fire Down Below swatches and review

Hi beauties!

I recently killed some lemmings with an order from NailLand but some were out of stock so I experimented a little – and somehow Colors by Llarowe Fire Down Below from her Summer 2016 collection hopped in my cart. I guess it was because I have a thing for holographic and shimmery nudes lately!

CbL Fire Down Below is an ivory-to-beige scattered holo with a strong multichrome shimmer that mostly shows pink, but also gold and copper. I didn’t really like this colour against my skin tone. Nudes can be really tricky! Something about this colour makes it look grey-ish and green-ish on my nails and not very pretty. Too bad because I actually like it, also on other photos of bloggers wearing it, even though they also have rather pale skin. Oh well! Application was easy, I needed two coats for the results below, and added a coat of HK fastdrying top coat. The wear was great! I got 3 full days without any chipping or tip wear before I took it off.

Thanks for stopping by! Did you already find your perfect nude – maybe even your perfect nude-holo?

KB Shimmer – Ready for a Good Lime Swatches and Review

Hi friends!

When I first saw swatches of the KB Shimmer Summer 2016 collection I fell in love with Ready for a Good Lime. Then I kept reading reviews about how great and easy the application is – that’s when I decided to buy it. I love neon green nail polishes but the thing is – all of the ones I tried so far were streaky or sheer, or needed a white base. So I just had to buy this one!

And I was not disappointed. The application is great! Two easy coats is all this beauty needs. Also, it dries quickly and, for a neon, pretty shiny on its own! I added a fast drying top coat for the pictures though, which gave the polish some extra shine. The wear was good and I had no problems with staining when removing it.

This week the colour for the german blog challenge “Lacke in Farbe und bunt” is light green! So, perfect timing!

This beauty is not a true green neon creme, it is more of a pastel muted very light green neon creme if you know what I mean. Well at least it was neon enough to freak out my camera, but I tried my best to capture the colour accurately.

I was so impressed by the application that I made a video for you to see! Check out how easy and smooth the application is🙂

I bought this beauty at Harlow & Co.

Happy Sunday everyone!
