ANNY – For Winners – L.A. Film Awards Collection

ANNY recently released their For Winners – L.A. Film Awards Collection:anny - for winners la awards - bottlesThis collection is right up my alley. Lovely pinks and reds :D And there is a white cream in there too! I’m always looking for the perfect white cream with a good coverage and minimum streaking. What Else is a pure white cream. The formula is on the thin side but builds nice and smooth to an opaque finish in three thin coats. Perfect as undies for some nail art! anny - for winners la awards - distressedRed Inspiration, a medium red cream with strong pink undertones. I love it! The formula is perfect. Shown here is two coats with no top coat!anny - red inspirationSave The Last Dance, a classic red cream. You can never go wrong with a good red cream. Also, you can never have enough red creams ;) The formula is slightly thicker than Red Inspiration. This is two coats with no top coat:anny - save the last danceDark Romance, a dark grey cream with hints of green and purple. It has a gorgeous purple shimmer running through out but sadly it doesn’t translate on the nails very well. This dries a little darker than how it looks in the bottle. Shown here is two coats with no top coat: anny - dark romance If you’d like to see full swatches of the other three shades of this collection, please let me know ;)


ANNY: Crazy Shot

Hi beauties!

Here’s another untried polish: Crazy Shot by ANNY:anny-crazy-shotI believe this polish is part of the Miami Beach Next Top Model Collection from last year. The formula is a little on the thin and sheer side but nothing problematic. What a lovely teal green shimmer! I’ve used three thin coats plus top coat here but think I could have used just two.

What do you think of this polish?

Have a nice weekend!

ANNY polishes are exclusively available at Douglas stores (€9,95 -15 ml).

Hello everyone!

Shortly after ANNY released their textured collection Desert Glam, they launched the following collection called Open Air Hippie Festival:
anny open air hippie festivalThis collection consists of six new shades of which four have a subtle silver shimmer. The shimmer isn’t really noticeable once it’s on the nails, but it’s there :D

On to the swatches!

Music in the air, a light lavender purple cream with ultra fine silver shimmer. The formula is on the thin side and quite tricky to work with. It’s also sheer. You can get away with two generous coats but I used three thin here.anny music in the airIndian sun, a bright yellow cream with a tiny bit of silver shimmer hidden in the formula. As with most yellow polishes the application isn’t very easy. This is two coats: anny indian sunCatch fire, really looks coral in the bottle but it dries darker. On my nails it looks more orange than in the bottle. This one has also a slight silver shimmer. The formula is okay. This is two coats:anny catch fireHippie dance, a bright blue based pink with silver shimmer. The formula of this is good and easy to work with. I used two coats here:anny hippie danceDrunken jeans, a dark navy blue cream which is nearly a crelly. The formula is perfect!

ANNY – Desert Glam

ANNY couldn’t left behind with the textured trend that is currently going on. This is the newest collection which consists of eight textured polishes: Desert Glam.To my knowledge this is the first and only collection that ANNY has released in mini size only. Each polish contains 6 ml. The brushes are the same as with the full size polishes, nice and easy to work with.anny desert glam1All swatches are with a base coat and two coats of color. They’re all fully opaque in two coats :) The formula is great and the application went easy. Also, the removal was not difficult at all. On to the swatches!

First up, four lovely shades with a ‘sandy’ finish:

Pink oasis, a bright pink shade. In real life this it’s brighter than the picture shows.
anny pink oasis - desert glamLas Vegas showgirl, a lavender shade. Perfect color for Spring don’t you think?anny las vegas showgirl - desert glamShooting star, a nude-ish taupe leaning to light grey shade.anny shooting star - desert glamBig performance, a very bright aqua blue shade. So bright! Lovely!anny big performance - desert glam

The other four shades have a little bit extra in their formula, shimmer and glitter. They also have a textured finish. Let’s take a look:

Blue hypnosis
, a bright cobalt blue base with fine purple and blue glitter. anny blue hypnosis - desert glamShe’s amazing, a bright red base which appears to lean to coral thanks to the fine gold glitter particles. This one has fine pink glitter too.
I think this one might me similar to OPI’s Jinx. In the bottle they seem very similar. I’m going to compare the two as soon as I swatched Jinx, which is still laying in my drawer… unopened. [EDIT: check out the comparison here]anny she's amazing - desert glamAfter dinner show, is, to me, a hard to describe shade. First of all, it is more greenish than the picture shows. It’s more leaning to sea foam green as you can see from the bottle shot at the end of this post. This one has silver shimmer and small round silver glitter. The textured finish is rougher comparing to the ones above. Great shade!anny after dinner show - desert glamRock your nails, a silver base with strong purple undertones. It has the same formula as After dinner show, as well as the silver shimmer and round silver glitter. anny rock your nails - desert glam
