Thumb’s Christmas Nails ( Essie’s Really Red)

Thumb’s Christmas Nails ( Essie’s Really Red)

‘Tis the season to be jolly and of course my nails need to be matching as well. For my Christmas nails I opted for Essie’s Really Red nail polish. I received this polish as free gift of purchase and I am so happy with it.

When I have been wearing this polish, people have asked me if I had my nails done or which polish it was. It is so beautiful. I really cannot fault this polish!  I Love the color, the longevity and the minimal chipping. Just all Thumbs up for me!

What also could be fun is to do use some glitter polish on some of the nails to make it more festive. I would opt for a silver of gold polish in this case.

Please check out my other posts if you enjoyed reading this one .

Happy holidays guys and hope to see you back soon!

Until next post friends!

Thumbs nails of the month: Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer nr 117 Mauve To the Best

Thumbs nails of the month: Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer  nr 117 Mauve To the Best

Hello everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Yes finally I am back with a new blog post. The reason for my absence was that I was very busy with moving house. Yep I am now a proud owner of an apartment and at last I can unwind a bit as the drama of arranging a mortgage and moving is now over.  But enough said about my private life and lets talk polish.

For this month I went for a lovely autumnal polish by the brand Catrice. It is beautiful mauve/taupe color and it look so cozy on the nails ( If that makes sense). Yes one notices I can explain things quite well (ermm).   I used 3 layers of polish,but 2 layers look already opaque. Afterward I finished with a gel top coat.

Thumb’s nails of the month: W7 Wild Blue

Thumb’s nails of the month: W7 Wild Blue

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

I should have posted this post several days ago, but some exciting things are currently happening in my life. So therefor blogging has been put on a bit of a hold.  However today I really wanted to post! This months nail polish is from the brand W7 and is called Wild Blue.

W7 is an affordable brand and they often sell products that tries to mimic high end brands.  In my opinion this polish look like a polish from the brand OPI. The way the bottle is designed and even the lid is very OPI.

As you might see from the photo’s, the color is a metallic cool blue which is mesmerizing. However I struggled a bit with the application of the polish. The brush is teeny tiny and you really have to apply 3 layers of the polish to make the color opaque.

My over all thoughts are the following

Price just 2,95 euro’s

Smell. Very strong polish smell. Not sure how to describe it.

I am still pondering about if I like this polish or not. It is not bad for the price and if you don’t mind layering 3 times then you might like it.  Again the color makes a lot up for the negatives mentioned!

I hope you all  liked this post!  For my last post click here. Until next post friends!

Thumbs nails of the month : KiKo Power Pro Nail Lacquer in 82

Thumbs nails of the month : KiKo Power Pro Nail Lacquer in 82

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

After some radio silence I am back with some nail loving.  Must say that my nails were sort of sad looking and it was time to jazz them up. All though some might say they are still a bit dull looking.  But I LOVE them !

The color 82  is a taupe grey color with a slight lilac undertone to it. Which I find very stunning of course.  I used the Essie first base, for my base coat followed by two layers of the nail lacquer in 82. I finished with the KiKo Gel effect top coat, which is very BOM .COM! FYI!

Design ( Brush is not attached to the lid . There is an extra lid to it. Why? Don’t ask me , still trying to figure this one out. )

Overall KiKo did very well with this polish. It is a beautiful color, has lovely  pigmentation to it  and  is easy to work  with. If all the polishes from KiKo are like this,then they have a winning product!

Thumbs nails of the Month: Essie’s Loot the Booty

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

It is a new month and it is time for Thumbs nails of the month!  Today’s polish  Loot the Booty, is from the Summer  Antigua collection from Essie. It has been a long time since I have been sporting an  Essie nail polish and I could not be more excited to be wearing it.

The color is cool dark blue with specs of turquoise and purple. I just  can’t help, staring at my nails. I used 2 layers of the polish and started out with a base coat and finished with 2 coats of the Gel Setter topcoat from Essie.
