OPI - Today I Accomplished Zero

Today I have a beautiful polish to show you.

Today I Accomplished Zero is a black jelly base with lots of pink glitter (which honestly looks more red to me) from OPI's 2014 Coca Cola collection. I love this polish. It reminds me of Stay The Night which is a texture polish from OPI.
The Coca Cola collection is made in collaboration with (yes you guess it), Coca Cola. There are 9 polishes in the collection and I want to own them all. I like the colors of course and I'm a big Coca Cola fan. At the moment I only own this one though.

The formula is great to work with and it's really easy to apply nicely. For the photos I used 2 thick coats and even though they were thick drying time was actually quite fast. All in all I'm really liking this polish!

So here it is without top coat in natural light.

I wanted to do a little something to it, so I chose to stamp over it with A England - Holy Grail.
It's not super visible, but it gave it a nice effect I think.

Here it is with top coat in natural light.

What do you think?

Application: 10/10
Opacity: 8/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Value for money: 9/10
Overall: 9/10
Buy again: Yes!

Tomorrow I am joining in on another monday music challenge made by Rainbowifyme. The challenge is this time called Magical Music Manis. The challenge will run for 3 months or 13 mondays. The first song we are starting out with is One Republic - Counting Star.

Here is the banner.

I hope you will enjoy my interpretations of the songs on my nails.

I applied a black base color and coated Picture Polish - Aurora over it and stamped with A England - Briar Rose.

Here it is with top coat in natural light.

And in sunlight.

OPI - DS Opulence

Today I have great polish to show you.

DS Opulence is a dusty mauve-pink with holographic shimmer from OPI's Designer Series collection from 2008. This is a really gorgeous polish.

The formula was nice and easy to apply. It took 2 coats to get opaque and drying time was fairly average.

This looks so great in the sun, but unfortunately there were no sun out when I photographed it. Furthermore I forgot to take photos of it before finishing the mani, so here you get it with flower decals and top coat.

What do you think?

Application: 9/10
Opacity: 8/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Value for money: 8/10
Overall: 8,5/10

Picture Polish - Tailfeather and polish haul from Poland.

Today I want to show you a pretty polish.

Tailfeather is a beautiful mint green polish with micro scattered holo glass flecks from Picture Polishes Collaboration collection. This one is a collaboration with the talented blogger Kayla Shevonne.

It's a really pretty polish, but I had some trouble with the formula which was quite thin and made it a little annoying to put on. Furthermore it took 4 coats to get opaque, which also made the drying time long. I'm just not a big fan of polishes like this even though I love the color, that just wasn't enough for me, so I found it a new owner.

Anyway here it is with top coat in natural light.

What do you think?

Application: 6/10
Opacity: 4/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Value for money: 6/10
Overall: 6,5/10
Buy again: Probably not.

Polish Haul from Poland

This weekend we were in Poland for our best friends wedding and of course I had to shop a bit. They had a mall there that was just heaven for a polishaholic like me *yay*

Here is the whole haul.

Let's take a closer look:

In a Douglas shop at Focus Mall I found Essense at 6.99 PLN a piece.

From left to right: Free Hugs, Here's My Number, Party Princess, Hello Marshmallow, Space Queen & Break Through.

In Focus Mall there was booth in the middle of the hallway with Golden Rose polishes. Oh there were soooo many different that it was difficult to just pick a few, but the hubby didn't think I should buy to many, so I got these 6. I picked a bit of different sorts. The frosted bottles look really cool! Prices was from 7.90 to 12.90 PLN

From left to right: 207, 30, 119, 26, 311 & 327.

In the city center there was a Rossmann shop that I had to try and they had a LOT of nail polishes from different brand, from brands we know in Denmark to a few that was Polish. This brand Lovely should be a Polish brand. The blue one is a texture polish. Prices was 8.59 and 5,69 PLN

From left to right: 235 & 7

In a Rossmann shop in Focus Mall I found Manhattan polishes. This is a brand I know from our trips to Germany, so when I found these beautiful glitter polishes I just had to own them. These were 13.99 PLN a piece.

From left to right: Laguna Love, Jungle Gem & Violet Volcano.

In Focus Mall there was also a Inglot shop that sold the makeup brand Inglot. This seems to be one of the expensive Polish brands and I think they are real quality polishes. I was recommended to try this brand and after googling a bit I found out that their Gel Effect Top Coat is supposed to be really good at prolonging the life of your manicure, so I had to try that out aswell. I'm really looking forward to trying these!
Prices was 21 PLN for the polishes, 22 PLN for the top coat and 15 PLN for a polish thinner.

From left to right: 954, 388, 234, Gel Effect Top Coat & polish thinner.

All in all I spend 255,59 PLN on all of these. That's 454,20 DKK and $80,33. I think that's a fair price for 20 polishes, 1 top coat and a thinner.

OPI - Sheer Tints Watercolor nails.

Today I want to show you a watercolor mani I made using OPI's Sheer Tint polishes.

I bought the mini set because I wanted to try them, but I wasn't sure I would actually use them a lot, so for me I think it would be a waste to buy all 4 in full size. I'm glad I made that decision because although they give a nice effect I don't think I will be using them that much, but I like this mani I did with them.

Time for pictures.

I started out by painting all of my nails white with OPI - Alpine Snow and then I just made random spots on the nails with all 4 of the Sheer Tints which ended up like this.

Bottle shot!

After applying the Sheer Tints I stamped over them with a white stamping polish from Dashica.

I think it gave it a nice effect.

What do you think? Have you tried the Sheer Tints?

Essie - After School Boy Blazer

After School Boy Blazer is a inky navy blue creme from Essie's Fall 2013 For The Twill Of It collection. 
It's a bit of a vampy dark blue and it has a nice shine to it. Although I like dark and blue this color didn't do much for me. Don't know why...

The formula was great and it was easy to apply. Furthermore it was almost a one coater, but I needed 2 coats for full opacity. Drying time was nice.

Here it is with 1 layer of top coat in natural light.

What do you think?

Application: 9/10
Opacity: 8,5/10
Colour, prettiness: 7/10
Value for money: 8/10
Overall: 8/10
Buy again: Probably not.

A England - Excalibur

Today I want to show you a great polish from A England.

Excalibur is a silver foil with gold in it from A Englands The Mythicals collection. There is more than one version of this and to be honest I'm not a 100% sure which one this is, but I think it's the newest one since the older version is more silvery and looks more like foil.
It's a pretty polish though and I think it would be great for stamping, so I'll have to try that some time.

The formula on it was great to work with and made application a breeze and it was almost opaque in 1 coat, but it took 2 to reach fill opacity. Drying time was fairly average.

Here it is in natural light with 1 layer of top coat.

Unfortunately I had a hard time capturing the gold shimmer with my camera. *sigh*

What do you think?

Application: 9/10
Opacity: 8/10
Colour, prettiness: 7/10
Value for money: 8/10
Overall: 8/10
Buy again: Maybe.

Picture Polish - Pshiiit

Hey again. It's been awhile, I know. I had actually made a post that said I would be gone for 3-4 weeks for my summer vacation, but apparently it didn't publish when I thought it did, so I'm sorry for the sudden silence again. I have had a great summer and hope you have too!

Today I have a gorgeous polish to show you!

Pshiiit is a beautiful blue base polish with green shimmer and a bit of blue to green flakies from Picture Polish's Collaboration collection. This polish is made in collaboration with Camille from
It's a great color that reminds me a bit of the deep sea.

Formula was nice to work with and it only took 2 coats get opaque. Drying time was fairly average, not super impressive, but not horrible either.

Here it is with 1 layer of top coat in natural light.
