So today, i’m not only showing you my latest find of gorgeousness, but i’m also sharing it with one lucky winner. So stay tuned”. – Luchessa

If you haven’t seen it already, here is the ‘One of a Kind’ – special edition nail polish
It’s a milky off-white base packed with pink and blue shimmer. It comes in a square bottle (10ml) with real Swarovski Crystals on the front side of the bottle.
One of a Kind polish alhocolic 2The brush is the same as the regular round bottles.This can be worn on its own (3 coats) or layered over a base color. It should look very elegant and classy over a darker polish.

So far only 5 of these babies have been made and ONE OF YOU is going to WIN a bottle.

*CLOSED* OPI Matte Top Coat – GIVEAWAY

[EDIT: GIVEAWAY CLOSED]

A while back OPI released their matte top coat. The perfect product to give your manicure a matte finish. Recently I came across a fun “Flash On Matte” gift pack that includes not only the matte top coat, but also silver and white shimmer dust to get a glamorous look.

I couldn’t resist bringing this package home for a giveaway. That’s right: I’ll be giving away this package! 😀
OPI_Matte_Top_Coattt__79513.1362414362.640.640
Package includes:
1 OPI Matte Top Coat: Protection for your nail color with a matte finish. Turns shiny surfases matte. Get the hottest look in nail design in a flash! Glitter against a matte background takes two-toning to another dimension. Apply color to your nails as usual. Then apply OPI Matte Top Coat to a nail and while still wet, add glitter where you want it -at the tips or at the cuticle, or all over the nail for maximum sparkle.
Shimmer Dust – Gold: Go subtle to bold with a dusting of gold.
Shimmer Dust – Silver: Add twinkling stars or whole galaxies of sparkling silver.opi-intext

P2 Sand Style

A while back the lovely Luchessa at Beauty Expression by Luchessa sent me a surprise package filled with polishes 😀 Isn’t she the sweetest?! Among with other lovely polishes she sent me four textured polishes by P2.

P2 is certainly going along with the textured trend that is going on lately. Their textured range is called Sand Style and consists of six different shades:sand style polishesFrom left to right:
#040 illegal (swatch below)
#050 confidential (swatch below)
#020 lovesome (swatch below)
#030 seductive (swatch below)
#010 adorable
#060 strict

I’d like to show you the four shades that Luchessa has sent me plus a surprise at the end of this post.

All swatches are with a base coat and two coats of color.

illegal, a bright red base with gold and red glitter particles.p2 illegal
lovesome, a bright pink base packed with gold and magenta glitter particles.p2 lovesome

seductive, a plum base packed with gold glitter particles.p2 seductive
confidential, a denim blue base packed with gold, blue and purple glitter particles. p2 confidential
Lovely ha! I love them all. The formula is fantastic and very easy to work with. Obviously they all dry to a matte textured finish with sparkle. You’ll need two coats for full opacity. The trick to really let the textured finish show off is to let the first coat dry thoroughly before applying the second one. The removal is a bit more difficult than a ‘regular’ polish but they’re not that stubborn as for example OPI’s and Zoya’s textured polishes.

EDIT [05-08-2013]: GIVEAWAY CLOSED!

bild-p2-ultra-rich-hand-serum-dataAnd the even more fun part is… drum roll please…

Luchessa is giving away three of these Sand Style polishes of your choice plus a Ultra rich hand serum with grape seed and evening primrose oil & permute extract.
Luchessa really loves it. It has a great AEF vitamin complex that moisturizes your hands overnight. Who doesn’t want perfectly moisturized soft hands?
