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…

Back on the Road Again

It’s time for Mario Kart again! I’ve been waiting for Mario Kart 8 for ages now, and finally yesterday was the release day. Of course we had to get the Limited Edition with a blue shell figurine XD. Here you can see the box. I couldn’t wait to open it! And here’s the game and the blue shell. I does look a bit intimidating, doesn’t it? I think it’s a really cool item. It matches our Mario figure collection perfectly! The Mario Kart games are on my top list of longest or most played games, together with Final Fantasy XI,…

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…
