Showing posts with label jelly

Hello lovelies,

Straight after Christmas an amazing package came through the door. What? What was in the package you ask? Polishes from amazing brand called Shimmer! Today I'll show you one of them - a beautiful glitter polish called Marylin. It was my favourite straight away! I love vampy reds, jellies and glitters and this polish is all of these!!!LOVE!!!

Marilyn is and awesome red glitter in a vampy dark red jelly base. The glitter is quite interesting - it appears black on indirect light. I needed three coats for a full coverage. It dries slightly gritty and satin so I have applied a topcoat (I should've applied two coats to be honest). Thankfully it did not stain my nails at all which I always appreciate. I must say I really love this polish!

One more thing - I'd just like to point your attention to the prop I'm holding in the pictures. It's actually a handmade Christmas 'card' from my boyfriend's sister. She always makes all card herself and they are always super awesome. She even stamped the snowflakes on it with gold ink! Anyway...enjoy!

Hello lovelies,

I've got here a 'new to me' indie brand WellNails from talented Charlotte. A little bit about Charlotte and the brand:

I’m Charlotte from Denmark. I’m 27 years old and has been a polishaholic since I lived in London two years ago. And it was all thanks to you lovely, British ladies, because I got so excited from the nice comments the shop clerks gave me, asking me for advice about how to layer polish and which colours I was wearing.

So I’ve been writing a blog (in Danish) ever since – called http://Passion4Polish.dk
Nail polish isn’t as big a deal here in Denmark as it is in UK. So I’m the first indie maker, and I started the WellNails line in October. I believe my signature thing is the Glow In The Dark polishes, they are quite popular.
I’m a glitter gal, which is quite clear when you look at my polishes ;)
I also have fallen completely in love with the American comedy ‘How I Met Your Mother’ – this is why I’ve decided to do a HIMYM-collection! I find inspiration in the show, both regarding colours and names. To me it’s important to give each and every polish a life of its own, and that’s why every one comes with a little story (I haven’t had the time to fully update the shop, so therefore some of them hasn’t gotten this feature atm, but I’ll get there) ;)

*********************************

I love How I Met Your Mother too so I was really excited about the names! I've got two polishes to try - Happy Slapsgiving! and Oh Honey..!

Happy Slapsgiving! - mix of yellow, orange, red, copper and brown glitter in a clear base. The glitters are of different sizes which I really like as it's not all boring and uniform. The whole mix instantly says Autumn, Thanksgiving and Halloween for me. I have taken pictures of the polish in one coat and in two coats so you can compare the opacity of the glitter. Both versions look good :) 

It applied easily and I did not have to carefully place the glitter, it just somehow went on nicely. Also I didn't use any topcoat and as you can see, the surface is not gritty. You can read the story behind the name of the polish here and I've found a video on YT as well :D

Oh Honey..! - red and black glitter in a red jelly base. I see ladybugs/ladybirds on my nails! That is so cute - I can't help myself but stare at the colour! I'm wearing two thicker coats to get the opacity you see. Despite being jelly, it has quite good pigmentation. Some of you might prefer three coats but I always prefer to use just two. The first coat dried very fast and the second one dried slower as there was quite a bit of polish on the nail. It also dries a bit gritty so I had to use a topcoat (would use it anyway). Overall I absolutely love this polish - it's girly, it's cute and it represents another episode of How I Met Your Mother. You can find out more here
