Orly Spring collections (well some of them)

So when I got home not only did I have new phone waiting for me… but I also received a package with some new polishes in it from ORLY! And I of course tried my new phone’s camera for a quick picture of the polishes!

And I am amazed over the quality of the picture! I loooove my new phone 😀 The only sad thing about all this.. is I cant try these!! I made a promise to a very sweet reader to test the how long my new Chanel polish can last before it starts to chip and such.. So have to hang in there 😛

Anyways to get back to the polish, its from left to right
from the Sweet Collection
Pixi Stix
Lemonade
Snowcone

and from the Bloom Collection
Wild Wisteria
Pure Petunia
Ginger Lilly

Cant wait to show you these on 😀
Have a really nice evening/day where ever you are and thanks for reading! 🙂

Chanel Particulière

Today I received my order from last weeks “shopping spree” on eBay Chanel Particulière 😀

Just grabbed some quick shots of it 😀 Maybe be back with some better pics when I get the new camera

Chanel - 505 Particulière

I LOVE how it looks. And as with all chanel polishes it the application is really good. I think its nice how is lighter or dark depending on the light 😀

Chanel - 505 ParticulièreThis is with two coats and seche vite top coat

In all I am really glad I got this and think I will be wearing this for a good amount of time this spring 😀


China Glaze vs. GOSH vs. H&M

So I mentioned in a post that I thought my Gosh – Holographic was a dupe.. And I take that back.. Well and then again maybe not, I am really confused about this 😛 Because there are some big similarities in the H&M and the GOSH. The CG is more fine in the holo than the others are. But I will let you be the judge 🙂 I think my favorite actually might be Gosh, just cause it has that extra holo effect.. what do you think? But saying that the China Glaze is a bit different in the bunch so there’s no comparison here other than the holo effect it self. You with me still? 😛

But hey for this might only be for the trained eye.. I don’t think anyone could see any difference if I put them on randomly on and went to work 😛

Mom & Dad-Chairs

This is gonna be so off topic.. nothing nail related here today.. move it along people 😛

This Christmas I picked up a great idea from on of my favorite blogs, the danish blog guru Marie. She had a post about on how her home looked and had included a little contest and some pictures.  See her post here And in this I saw a great idea for a Christmas presents to my mom and my future “dad” 😛

So I present the Mom and Dad Chair!

Step 1:
You take 2x old dusty chair from a flea market

Step 2:
You take 1 old dusty grandfather to help you get the buttons off the legs

Step 3:
You burnish(is this right word?) the chair where the glue is suppose to be put on

Step 4:
You put a lot of pictures of the person the chair is intended to on

Step 5(optional):
Then you maybe put something a little extra on (in this case a picture from their wedding day)

Step 6:
Then you coat it with some see through stuff so it wont be worn up so quickly and voila you have a mom and dad chair ;DThen you have the dusty grandfather disguise it as something completely different when wrapped.
And then they had a very merry Christmas! 😀
I wish I was there when they got the present, but this year I had to work Christmas eve
(oh well can re-use the idea when I get some grandchildren for them at some point :P)

But they really liked their present and it came in handy for our Christmas party 😀

NOTD / Gosh – Holographic

So first up I wanna show a picture from yesterdays NOTD with a bit of sunshine on it

Gorgeous right? 😀 And with a bit of sunshine on it looks even more like a foil 😀

And moving on for this NOTD.
A holo. My favorites are holos, mostly because they are like glitters.. shiny and glittery just without the glitter and that makes it SO much more easier to get off 😛
And without much further ado. Here is some nice holo shots, without a flash I have to take advantage of that sun!

Gosh – 549 Holographic

A, no THE holo above them all. My favorites are holos, mostly because they are like glitters.. shiny and glittery just without the glitter and that makes it SO much more easier to get off 😛
