Nail polish stash

I don’t have many polishes yet, but I’d like to share my stash and swatches with you!

Since my nails aren’t looking very great, and I don’t want to ruin them more by putting on lots of polish and then having to take it off with remover again, AND I wanted to review my swatches at any time I want, I put them in a small book. This was also an easy way to test the opacity (the book has lines) in multiple layers.



And now, tilted to see the shine/shimmer!

My favourites are the Essence ones! I love both the blue glittery one, as well as the Dalmations top coat. They also look great together! 🙂 Which is your favourite, and what colours/polishes should I add to my collection?

In the process of starting up


I’m very glad that you have found my *new* blog, unfortunately there’s nothing to see here yet. I’m still collecting ideas and photos, and I’m not sure how to gain an audience. I also need to make a pretty banner (I love this standard one but it’s kind of irrelevant to my blog..)

Anyway, the subtitle of my blog really says it all. I made this to review nail polishes/nail art stuff, make up, and have general rants about things that are bothering me. I like writing but I’m usually not very good at it, so I have to practice 😉
