Abstract floral nail art on Chilly Breeze

The base color is P2 040 Chilly Breeze – see swatches HERE - from the Catch The Glow sun goddess collection. I loved the aqua color with the golden shimmers, and it inspired me to paint this in acrylic craft color! The top coat is as usual Seche Vite.
Do you like it..?

Darling Diva If Anyone Falls swatches

Darling Diva If Anyone Falls is a gorgeous magenta leaning purple holo with a super strong effect in the sun and very visible in all other light settings – a little lesser in outdoor shade tho.
This is 2 easy coats with a top coat – I wore it on 6th of September, my 61st birthday :) 
Do you love it as much as I do...?
I got it in a swap, but you can buy it from Edgy Polish!

Pastel yellow swatch spam: Claire's, Etude House, Innisfree, Kleancolor and Rival de Loop

After the gorgeous Chanel Holographic earlier today I have a pastel yellow overload...
As some of you you know I LOVE pastel yellow polishes, and I buy every single one that I can lay my hands on - not the yellows, only the pastel yellows!
So in this post you will meet 5 pastel yellows from: Claire's, Etude House, Innisfree, Kleancolor and Rival de Loop.

Claire’s (without any name):
Claire’s (without any name) is a pretty pastel yellow creme in the pale end. The formula is easy to work with, but somewhat sheer, so I ended up with 4 coats to hide my ridges (even if I applied 2 coats of ridgefiller), but on normal nails 3 coats would be enough. The good news is however that the self leveling is surprisingly good and even if it dries shiny, 4 coats takes time to dry, so a fast drying top coat is recommended.

Etude House Ice Cream Nails #BE101:
Etude House Ice Cream Nails #BE101 is one of the cute ice cone shaped polishes from Etude House. It’s NOT really a pastel yellow, more a yellow leaning towards pastel yellow. The formula is without any problems, 2 coats would be enough, but because of my ridges I chose to show it in 3 coats without a top coat.

Innisfree Eco Nail Color #10:
Innisfree Eco Nail Color #10 is another pretty pastel yellow cream polish. The formula is easy to work with, the dry time and self leveling is good and 2 coats are enough in most cases. This is however 3 coats without a top coat.

Kleancolor 143 Pastel Yellow:
Kleancolor 143 Pastel Yellow is IMO a lemon pastel yellow creme. This is 3 coats with a top coat, 2 coats would be enough. It’s easy to apply, dries somewhat slow, the self leveling is neither good nor bad – but I cannot stand the smell.

Rival de Loop 481H:
Rival de Loop 481H is a sweet pastel yellow. The formula is nice to work with, a bit on the sheer and slightly thin side. 3 coats are needed, but I ended up doing 4 coats without a top coat, so the self leveling ability is really good.
So - do you like them?
Any favorites..?
If you aren't into pastel yellows - maybe you like Chanel Holographic that I showed earlier today ;)

Chanel Holographic - Duo Platinum collection 2007

Chanel Holographic – is from the Duo Platinum collection 2007.
One set of Duo Platinum was Holographic and the other one was Silver, both sold in sets with the base coat Base Fixante/Fixing Base.
Holographic is a silver holo, the strongest I ever saw in any kind of light setting – it’s jaw-droppingly gorgeous, I’m speechless…
It was the clear winner of the silver holo test I did a while back – see it HERE.
This is two coats over two coats of Salon Sciences Instant Artificials, a ridge filler that KarenD kindly sent me, thanks a lot!
I do have the Chanel Fixing Base but it is no help to smoothen out my severe ridges, and Holographic is from the first generation of holo polishes that all cling terribly to the nail and show any imperfections. I took these photos before I added a top coat – but fortunately neither Seche Vite nor HK Girl killed the holo.
Do you like it - or love it ;)

Orly: Hawaiian Punch and Royal Navy

Two IMO beautiful Orly polishes. The formula is perfect and easy to work with in both of them.

Hawaiian Punch:
Hawaiian Punch is a gorgeous, hot dark fuchsia/magenta pink with a beautiful shimmer. It is very opaque in 1 coat, but this is 2 coats with a top coat.

Royal Navy:
Royal Navy is a dark cobalt blue heavily packed with beautiful shimmer. This is 2 coats with a top coat.
Do you like them - do you have a favorite?

Dance Legend Comet Tail swatches

Dance Legend Comet Tail 844 is from the Galaxy (holo multichrome) collection, and it is a beautiful duochrome with holographic bits scattered all over like tiny stars.The duochromes shifts between purple, olive and kind of a bronze/gold in flashes and the holo play is very beautiful. This is 2 easy coats and a coat of Seche Vite – I love this unique polish a lot! 
Sorry for the picture overload - I couldn't restrain myself ;)
