Dior - Porcelaine #204

Hi guys! Congratulations to those on Instagram who guessed the name of the nail polish I was wearing - 1000 points to you each as promised! :D It's the gorrrgeous Porcelaine #204 from the Dior Trianon Spring 2014 Collection. I also got the Perlé effect top coat, which I'll be showing you soon enough too. Porcelaine is a beautiful light pastel blue, it's a creme, but as it's quite thin and at 2 coats semitransparent, I dare to call it crelly-like! :) So I used 3 coats this time, even though I don't like using more than 2 coats of polish, especially with cremes, because it usually allows for bubbling to occur. To me application was really okay, there was minimal streaking and almost no patching. My top coat by Poshé evened everything out very neatly. Read on below the photos :)











This is just the perfect Spring color for 2014, I love it so much! Well I love everything blue as always! :) I'm so happy with this polish, and I'm glad I spent that extra money on something I hoped to love - and I really do! The only other light blue color I own is Coco Blue by Chanel, and it's a tad darker than this one, and it has some fine shimmer to it :) Porcelaine is completely shimmer free, it's so simple and clean - it's me! ^_^

Do you have some suggestions for other light blue creme polishes? I'm so hooked now haha!

Anyway, I hope y'all had a great weekend! I almost slept through mine x)

Lots of love<3

Essie - Ignite The Night

Hello everyone! I'm a busy lady, but hey, I'm still here! I was given this wonderful nail polish for Christmas, and it's absolutely stunning - Ignite The Night by Essie. This beauty is fully packed with grayish silver glitter, and enriched with a smaller amount of brass glitter. It came out together with 5 other lacquers in 2013 in the Encrusted Treasures Collection. Ignite The Night gives complete coverage, and I just love wearing it on its own, it's so sparklyyy! You can surely just use it for an accent nail too :) On these photos I'm wearing 3 regular coats, with 1 layer of my top coat from Poshé - a very nice and thick top coat, which I at the moment prefer over Seche Vite.




All in all a sparkly glitterbomb! If you liked Beyond Cozy, also from Essie - released in the Winter Collection 2012, you're going to love this one. The formula is a bit improved, at least I think so, and that was the only small thing that bugged me with Beyond Cozy :) They both dry very gritty without top coat, and I love that! I don't know why, I just love to rub my nails when they're like that, because they're usually so smooth! Anyway haha, this was my favorite from the entire Encrusted Treasures Collection, and I definitely recommend it :)

See you guys!<3
