vibrant vibes

It’s not easy to find a good green nail polish. I already wrote about the adventure how I found my last green nail polish, when I was particularly looking for one. This time it was a little bit easier: In August I just went to my local drugstore like any other day and suddenly discovered the new Essie Neon Collection. All the other colors weren’t real neon colors in my opinion and I already own very similar colors, but I really liked the green color called “vibrant vibes” (#368). It’s a pretty special light and bright neon lime green color. And…

Dive Bar

Last week when I went shopping, I found a great new essie nail polish color called “dive bar” (#90). It’s a black-blue color with a pretty turquoise shimmer. Somehow I’ve never seen it before, so I thought it has to be a color from a limited collection but when I checked the essie website later, I found out that it’s one of the standard colors. Normally I don’t really like black nail polishes, because they look quite boring, but with the great green-bluish shimmer it really looks different and special. I’m a big fan of nail polishes with some shimmer…

Flashy Neon

Wow, it’s gotten really hot here for the last few days. Each day was over 30°C! After the long and terrible winter and the cruel spring this feels completely different. The change is pretty harsh, but even if it might be a little bit too hot without air-conditioning, you have to enjoy it while we have sun at least. You never know, when the weather will be bad again. The weather forecast predicts rain again for next week >.<. So I’m really happy to be on vacation again for a few days this week! top – H&M/Divided (only €2 on sale)…

cocktail bling

Hi! Today I want to show you one of my new nail polishes: #203 cocktail bling by essie. This color and four others were included in the german standard selection in exchange for 5 other colors ( #91 midnight cami and #89 over the edge amongst others, which I both snatched before they were sold out ^.~). It’s really hard to describe this color: It’s a light grey mixed with a mix of a light blue and lilac. Just something in between those XD… As always the photos I took the day before yesterday don’t do it any justice. Where’s the sun…

beyond cozy

As I already promised you, I wanted to try out essie’s “leading lady” limited edition nail polish color “beyond cozy” for the holidays. It’s a beautiful color with silver and gold glitter. I can’t really tell you if it’s more of a silver or gold color, it seems to be right in between gold and silver, so it’s a great nail polish to match silver and/or gold jewelry. I used it for christmas and also for new year with two layers color and one layer of a top coat, and it really lasted very well for almost one week both…

butler please

butler please

Yay, I was lucky to get another nail color of the limited edition “leading lady” by essie called “butler please”. It’s a beautiful royal blue color. Here you can see the color in comparison to essie’s “lapiz of luxury” and Anny’s “my private luxury”. All three are pure luxus XD! I also have to tell you that the finish wasn’t that great and not what my experience is with essie nail polishes. I already had some chips in the polish only some hours later and had to correct it on the next day, because it didn’t look good at all…

where’s my chauffeur?

I got my first nail polish of the limited winter edition “leading lady” by essie. When I first saw that there will be a new turquoise color I knew I had to get it. I was looking for it anywhere and finally got one at Bipa last week. It’s called “where’s my chauffeur?”. Well I guess my chaffeur will be public transportation forever XD. Here you can see a comparison to other standard turquoise essie colors, it’s a little bit darker and more blue-ish than mint candy apple. It’s a great color! I’m really interested in the limited blue and…
