Orly: Moonlit Madness, Green Apple and Meringue

Three random Orly polishes, the formula is perfect and easy to work with in all of them.

Moonlit Madness:
Moonlit Madness is a dark ruby red with a beautiful shimmer. It is very opaque in 1 coat, but this is 2 coats with a top coat.

Green Apple:
 Green Apple is just that – an apple green cream polish. This is 2 coats with a top coat.

Meringue:
Meringue is one of many Chanel Pearl Drop look-a-likes. It is a pearl shade with a strong, but more coppery sheen in the shimmers than the golden shimmers in Pearl Drop. You need 2 or 3 coats, this is however 4 coats without a top coat to achieve the best photos.
Do you have any favorites among these?
Mine is Moonlit Madness....

Celestial Cosmetics T’s In A Tizz swatches

Celestial T’s In A Tizz is a pretty medium green with a very strong holo effect. It’s super strong in the sun, strong in low indoor and artificial light.
It is a little bit sheer, fairly opaque in 2 coats, but even if I always use a ridge filler base coat – I felt the need to use 3 coats for these photos, so you see 3 easy coats (good dry time) with a coat of Seche Vite. 
Do you like a green holo - and do you like this one?
I bought it from Edgy Polish!

The Never Ending Haul Story - part 21

It's time for a new part of The Never Ending Haul Story :)
Remember the polishes shown in these posts are not from one single haul, I simply photograph them as they arrive and post a number of photos :)


Most of the below are old Chanel polishes, some very old - and I'm so happy to have them in my collection...
But when I post the next part - part 22 - you will notice a decrease in Chanel polishes - and no, I didn't get tired of them LOL, but recently I have fallen in love with some indie brands, that I would like to explore too!!

In a blog sale I slayed two lemmings: Finger Paintes Twisted and the older Essie Barbuda Banana!
I showed both of these - OPI La Paz-atively Hot in normal and matte versions...

Will The Never Ending Haul Story continue? Will Maria buy more polish?? Does she ever get enough???
Are you confused - you won't be after the next episode, if there is going to be one....;)

Lacquer Lust Aquamarine swatches

Lacquer Lust Aquamarine is from the Birthstone collection and represents March.
Aquamarine is a light and slightly grey (but also ever so slightly turquoise) toned blue linear holographic polish. The holo effect is fairly subtle even in the sun, but I do also see it a little bit in artificial light.
It is very opaque in one coat, but this is two coats with a coat of Seche Vite.
The formula is perfect, the dry time is quick and the finish is shiny. 
What do you think about it - I'm a bit torn, but I did some quite pretty nail art on it, and that made me like it a bit better...
I bought it from Norway Nails, use the code MARIA10 to get a 10% discount.

Chanel Boa 111

Chanel Boa 111 is of unknown age, but it’s not older than 2003, so it’s safe to say it’s mid 2000s. It is a girly, pretty pink crelly polish. Two coats would be enough, but for the sake of better photos this is three coats without a top coat.
Do you like Boa?
Not that Blogger messes with my pink colors, this is a little less hot than on the photos!

Sparitual Drop Dead Gorgeous swatches

I have been RAOK’ed (random act of kindness) by my dear friend Marianne from RainbowifyMe!!
A polish fairy have been playing around in our stashes and taken some from my stash and put in hers – and vice versa, thank you so much sweet polish fairy for this beauty!!!

Sparitual Drop Dead Gorgeous is JUST THAT! It is a magnificent magenta with a beautiful shimmer – the polish fairy sure knows me, it is such a “me” color!!
The gorgeous shimmer is evident in person, but failed to really show except in the close up photos...
This is 2 easy coats without a top coat – drop dead gorgeous, isn’t it!!!
The polish fairy knows what I like - can you tell??
Thank you so much Marianne!!
