Swatch of Essence Metal Battle

Image
Good morning, today is something short and sweet! this is a swatch of Metal Battle by Essence from their Metallics Collection. And it's matte! (drools :P) First time I put on polish since I cut my nails last week....

You can really see the shimmers with the flash on. It would almost look like a 'suede'....

Essence's Hypnotic Poison!!

Image
Good Day my fellow man! Lately, I've been all for Essence polishes, they're cheap, with a good brush and formula, and have a decent variety of colours! I was jonesing for another shimmer polish as I have too many cremes, so I forked over €1.30 for Hypnotic Poison. I think Dior have a perfume with the same name.... Hmmmm.....
It's a lovely colour I can't quite describe. Wine/Burgundy with subtle, pink-ish and red shimmer which is soooo HOT!!
The matte version, as you can tell, is the second nail. Everything just looks so good if it's mattified. It's like now it's shiny, now it's not. As with some shimmers the shimmery-ness (actual word?) fades, which I find really weird....

Uh the picture turned out more red than real life... I took another picture but there was no sunlight, regardless the colour was a bit more uh....lifelike.....hehe...




Okie Doke, that's all for now, thanks for stopping by! :P

Proper Swatch of Copper Rulez! Magnetic Polish

Image
Hello!! 8 days 'til Crimbo!! Don't really celebrate it only the Chinese New Year. Today is the proper swatch of Copper Rulez! by Essence from the Metallics Collection. Here is the initial post. I'm going to be swatching a lot on those coolio nail wheels until my nails are reasonably strong again....oh...bummer.
Well, no use beating around the bush! ^^

The first one is without the pattern and matte. The second one is without the pattern and without a topcoat. Didn't I say it looked gorgeous on it's own. The third one is a mattified version with the pattern. It didn't turn out as good as I thought because accidently held the magnet too close and dented it while it was wet. The mattiness dulled everything as usual so it don't look as good. The fourth is with the pattern and a topcoat, because it dries sorta satiny, I gotta learn some nail lingos....
Have a nice night everybody!!T_T

First Nail Wheel & Essence Swatch!!

Image
Guten Tag!!! Wassup!! Got off early today from school! 
Got myself a nail wheel and my very first one as well!! It's so cool 'cos now, I don't have to be constantly using nail polish remover, plus I trimmed my nails :( Okie Dokie. Well I have another nail polish by Essence from their Metallics Collection as I said I would. I got Metal Battle, it's a non-magnetic polish, black with primarily blue shimmer. It's sooooooooo pretty!! More after the photo....
The first one is with Matt(e) Topcoat by the same brand. That is gorgeous isn't it? Like flat paint. On the second nail you can kinda see some shimmer, it really is very subtle. No problems whatsoever, not yet anyways... 
Uh so that's it, have a good night and stay in school!^^

Image
Today's Random is a present my friend got me for Xmas. Bit early, you say? Well we were supposed exchange them on the 23rd before we got off for the holidays, but that idea went down the crapper!!
I got her a magnetic polish from Essence and the magnet. She loved it and started hopping around like a bunny!! Here is what she got me....!! 


It's a (mainly) pink charm bracelet with a candy theme. It's so sweet ^^ No pun intended! I love it so much and it was uber thoughtful of her!!!
Thank you Elisa. I wuv you!!

Quick and Dirty Swatch!!! ^^

Image
Hi-lo (Hi and Hello had a baby!!)
Today the paint job's really kinda rushed but I'll be back to do it properly next time round! It is Copper Rulez! by Essence today from the Metallics Collection this year and they've released like 5 polishes, 4 being magnetic and 1 is black I think. It sounds cool don't it, but I only got one, as part of my 'mini-haul' to check it out first. They sell a magnet separately that came with instructions which is down below,

Simply put, STRAIGHT AFTER applying a coat of the magnetic colour take hold of the magnet and place it over the nail as close as possible and how you position it will affect the end pattern. So easy a 13 yr old like me could do it.
Alessandro was the first brand to make magnetic polishes or was it L'Oréal? Well either ways Essence isn't the first. 
I heard through the grapevine that Essence's one doesn't work as well but I think that's because of the magnet, I got a good result but I was able to h…

My Friend Made This!!!

Image
Hey I just wanted to show you what my friend, Aly made, well drew for me!! It's so sweet!!



I never said it was appropriate! It's a zombie sheep and it's for me!!! Great friend she is!! You can just see her doodling (hehe funny word) in class sometimes and she comes up with these creatures of pure wonder... 
Think J.D. from 'Scrubs' love that show!! Hope you have a nice day!! The weather's bumming me out!

NOTD: Icicles!!

Image
Hope you're all well!! I really don't see the weather getting any better!! I started free-styling and came up with icicles, befitting since it is winter. 

I used O.P.I (as if I have any other nail polishes, I do but mostly O.P.I) Suzi Says Feng Shui and Russian Navy and my new nail art brush for extra precision. Just made couple of isosceles triangle and made a shadow sort of thing with the darker colour. Well like I said it was free-styled. It would look better with a white background but to be perfectly honest I have no white nail polish (sacrilegious right?) I'll get one soon though.... 
I plan to get O.P.I Alpine Snow (White), Banana Bandanna (Pastel yellow) and a Designer series colour!! My awesome friend's mother gets a salon discount at Sally Beauty Supplies store... Well, bye!! Hope das wetter gets better soon!!

2nd Unsuccessful Attempt!!

Image
Hello one! Hello all!! I'll be showing you my 2nd attempt at a gradient. I used the sponging method(hehe sounds funny!) with O.P.I's Suzi Says Feng Shui and Russian Navy. 
I think it's the fact that the particular type of topcoat by Sally Hansen causes it to blend together the wrong way, but God help me it dries so fast!! I might invest in a glitter topcoat as it might help and kinda distort the visible difference!! Slán libh!! Goodbye!!
