OPI: Skating On Thin-Island + My Voice Is A Little Norse

Hi everyone!

You’ve probably already seen OPI‘s newest collection for Fall, the Nordic Collection.
And again I wasn’t over the moon excited about the colors. Out of the twelve polishes I picked the four that really caught my eye. Here are the first two:opi - skating on thin ice-land - my voice is a little norseThe base is two coats of Skating on Thin Ice-Land, which is a purple cream. Not very special but I just love purple so I needed to have this one. The formula is great. This is two easy coats. To make this mani more interesting I created a glitter gradient with My Voice Is A Little Norse. This is a holographic top coat. It’s quite dense so I think this can be worn on it’s own with three (?) coats. opi - skating on thin ice-land - my voice is a little norse1Did you picked up polishes from this collection? Which one(s)?

OPI: The Sky’s My Limit – Mustang Collection

A while back OPI released their Mustang Collection, a collaboration with Ford. I wasn’t all to excited about the six polishes. To me there isn’t really something that we haven’t seen before. I couldn’t resist picking up The Sky’s My Limit though. Why? Well, Catch Me In Your Net is on my wish list for a long time and this one seems similar :D

Llarowe: Billy Jean

An entire collection inspired by the one and only Michael Jackson? Gimme gimme gimme! Since my teens I’m a huge fan of Michael Jackson. So when I saw that Leah Ann launched an entire collection inspired by this legend I knew I needed to have some.
This is Billy Jean:
llarowe - billy jean1So gorgeous and perfect for Fall. I love this kind of deep red hue’s with a purple tone to it. It has super pretty shimmer running throughout that shifts from violet to copper. Amazing! This is two flawless coats plus top coat.

It’s not a surprise that I will be back with more polishes from this collection, right? :D

Billy Jean is available at Hypnotic Polish (worldwide shipping).

Catrice – Liquid Metal (Matt)

I’m so excited to see all the new collections that are going around right now :) Catrice added lots of new polishes to their regular line but they also added 16 (!) more polishes to their Luxury Lacquer line (not to talk about their new collection for Fall). 8 of those are part of the Liquid Metal line. There are 4 matte polishes and 4 shiny ones. Today I like to show you the 4 matte polishes.

El Corazon: 512a – Confetti

el corazon - 512a confetti1Ahhh look at this gorgeousness! This is 512a from the Confetti range by El Corazon.
El Corazon keeps amaze me with the amazing formula of their polishes. This is another micro glitter but this one is holographic. Yay! Lilac and holographic micro glitter swimming in a pink base. It dries super fast to a semi matte and slihtly gritty finish. I used two coats for full coverage. Then I added two coats of top coat. This polish is top coat thirsty so one coat simply doesn’t give a smooth and glossy finish. Nevertheless I absolutely love this! el corazon - 512a confetti

This polish is, along with many other amazing polishes from great brands, available at Hypnotic Polish (worldwide shipping!).

Essence: New York City Call + I Love My Blue Jeans

I think there are only a few nude/beige/brown shades that suit my skin tone. Although I like a good ‘poo hue’, they don’t always look flattering. And some nude shades makes me look sick. For example, I really like a good mustard yellow polish but it just doesn’t look pretty with my skin tone. Now, here’s a soft beige hue with a satin finish that I really love:essence - new york city call - i love my blue jeans1I think this color suits my skin tone pretty well. And the formula, spot on! New York City Call is one of the new shades, recently released by Essence. It has a satin finish. Lovely! This is two easy coats, no top coat. Another new shade from Essence is I Love My Blue Jeans, which I used for the tips of my nails. The label on the cap of the bottle says this should have a suede finish. I don’t know about that but it is pretty for sure :Dessence - new york city call - i love my blue jeansWhat do you think of these?

Until next time! :*
