Happy Sunday everyone!
I assume we’re all familiar with a textured finish but this is not your ‘regular’ textured polish. The bottle of Balinese Bay by Revlon says ‘pebbled textured’. I really have no idea what that means but I do know that it’s awesome 🙂
This polish was gifted to me by the sweet Nailluminati. Thanks honey!This is a mix of pink, black, lavender and holo glitters. It’s super dense. It dries to a slightly textured matte finish. Not the regular textured finish though, it’s not extremely gritty or anything. I don’t have anything like this in my stash. This is two coats, no top coat. It looks amazing with top coat, too!
I believe this polish is part of last years Haute Rocks Collection which was limited edition. I don’t know if it’s still available.
Pretty awesome huh?!

Twisted by Fingerpaints is a lemming that is one my wishlist for like forever. I can’t find it anywhere! Fingerpaints came up with a new flakies collection though. From what I’ve read and seen these seem less vibrant than for the first collection. Nevertheless I like them. They’re flakies, what can I say? 😀 This one, Vivid Reflection, was gifted to me by Nailluminati, thanks sweetie! In the bottle it just looks like translucent flakies in a clear base. As said, there isn’t much color on the flakies or the base. So of course this needed to be layered over a base color. Instead of black I chose Eurso…Euro by OPI as my base color. As with most flakies the formula is a bit thick, but not too thick. Depending on the angle I see mostly red and purple. Such a pretty effect, don’t you think? Enjoy your Sunday! :*
First things first… the new Retro Collection has been released this morning. Check out the shop page for swatches or directly head over to the shop 😀 Happy shopping!
Again a textured polish today 🙂 I can’t get enough of them. Sexy In Sequins by L’Oréal was sent to me by my dear friend Nailluminati. Thanks so much!There is a lot going on in this polish. I think that is exactly why I love it so much. There is fine gold glitter and bigger silver glitter and I even spot some pink particles. Lovely! The formula is great. A tiny bit on the thick side but I found application very easy. This is just two coats. Beautiful, don’t you agree?
I was eyeing on Odette by Zoya for quite a while but it was constantly sold out everywhere. But here it is:I am so in love with this color! It’s opaque in two easy coats. I added one coat of Zoya’s Monet on my accent nail. The formula of Monet is very thick which made application quite difficult. I love the iridescent hex glitter though 🙂 What do you think of Odette and Monet?
A quick post to wish you all the best for 2014! I hope 2014 will bring you lots of luck, happiness and of course nail polish 😀 May all your wishes come true!
I hope you’ve had a fantastic Christmas with your loved ones. I sure did!
Thanks to everyone for sticking around with me, even when I’ve been mia lately and slow at replying on your comments (that’s going to change next year, promise!). I’ve made such fantastic and inspirational friends here around the blogosphere. Love y’all! Thank you all for being here!
My exciting goal for 2014 is making video tutorials! That’s right! Santa a.k.a. my sweet boyfriend spoiled me with a video camera. If you have any requests for tutorials please shout it out!
Have an awesome New Years Eve! Be safe!
See you next year, full power 😀
