NOTD: S-he stylezone #340

On my nails today is this gorgeous S-he stylezone polish, number 340.(gaaah, why can't all polishes have names???)
I bought it some time ago in DM store, since it was in the distontinued bin and the price was lowered.

I used two coats, and application didn't cause me any problems. I can't say much of its drying time, since I used fast drying topcoat. The brush is nothing special, maybe a little thin.

The colour of this one is amazing, beautiful dark olive green/grey in some lights with golden shimmer. The shimmer is very visible and it makes the colour beautiful. It really shines on your nails!

What do you think? Do you have any S-he stylezone polishes? Are there any other worth trying?

Yes love nail polishes

I came across this brand a while ago, and since they had really interesting colours, I decided to try a few myself. And I was not disappointed, in fact, I am planning to get at least a few more. For today I got four polishes:
yes-love-nail-polishes
G9-4(neon yellow), T28(neon pink), G11-4(pink with neon glitter) and 405(green glitters)

First, let me tell you how very disappointed I am, that they don't have names. Such beautiful polishes, and NO NAMES. That's a shame I tell you. But so far this is the only disappointment I have with them.

THE BRUSH on all four is great. A bit on the wider and bushier side, but nothing too big to handle.
THE APPLICATION/FORMULA all four was great, I didn't have any problems. All dried super-extra-fast(I mean it, a minute or so and they were dry), and I applied three coats of polish with each of them.

G9-4 

THE COLOUR is awesome! Neon yellow, opaque in three coats(yep, I know you can somewhat see my nail in line the pictures, but not IRL). You can see how shiny and in-your-face it is, I lovelovelove it!

THE COLOUR of this one is also great. Neon pink creme, that dries semi matte. You can see how clearly it is different in the bottle and on the nail, but I don't mind it, since it is awesome on the nail.

THE COLOUR is the colour I was most interested about. It says it "neon glitter" on the lid, and I hoped it'd look like that. And it did! I can see myself wearing this a lot. Lovely pink with different shapes and sizes glitters. In neon orange, yellow, green, purple,...You can see small circles and larger hexagon glitters. And I am really happy, because I didn't need to fish out the glitters, there are enough to get easy application. The only problem I had with this is, you have to make it ok with first time, if you try to correct something while the polish is still dry, you'll have a bit of problems, because you'll pick the glitters back up. But I still think it's a great polish!

THE COLOUR of this one is green. Small green glitters in somewhat green base. I can tell this polish was meant for layering. I kind of like it. I am not super-crazy about it, but I have to admit it is nice. I haven't really tried it over any polish, I only tried it on its own, so maybe I'll fell in love when layering. Do you have any suggestions over what should I layer it?

What do you think about this polishes? Have you ever heard of this brand or tried any of the polishes? Are there any others I really need to try?

NOTD: China glaze Calypso blue + Essence Steel-ing the scene golden topper


china-glaze-calypso-blue-essence-steel-ing-the-scene-gold-topper
I love this combo! First, let me say how beautiful Calypso blue is <3 Totally gorgeous on its own, but i had to do something to it, so I don't get bored as soon. So I added Essence golden topper. I was really (positivelly) surprised at how well the gold flakes transfered to the nail, I just had to dip the brush in the bottle and I had enough of them on for two, sometimes even three fingers!

The way it shines

china-glaze-calypso-blue-essence-steel-ing-the-scene-gold-topper
Calypso blue is a perfect dark blue. It was part of the Bahama blues collection. It does look dark, but it DOES NOT LOOK BLACK! In any light. And I love that!! My new favourited dark blue polish. Not to mention, it is a one-coater, talk about perfection <3 I read online the removal is not so great, but I still have to see that, since this is what I am currently wearing... I hope it isn't too bad, I hate smurf fingers!
Steel-ing the scene gold topper from Metal glam limited edition is exactly that. Gold flakes(glitters?) in a clear base. An easy application, but I did have some of the flakes stuck out of my nail surface a bit. Nothing major, it wasn't even visible, I was only able to feel it. But I didn't use any top coat, so maybe with a top coat it'd be better. The polish is packed with gold flakes, so no problem there :) And it shines <3 The flakes reflect light amazingly, so it shines, oh-so-beautiful!
