P2 Catch the Glow Nail Polishes – Swatches and Review

April 23, 2014 in Nails, Swatches

Hi lovelies. Today I want to show you two P2 Catch the Glow nail polishes. Catch the glow is the new collection from a German cosmetic brand P2. I mention this brand in my previous post and today I want to show you some pretty swatches. I am really impressed by this brand and I wish it was available in other countries.

First up is Chilly Breeze. It’s a gorgeous turquoise with a golden shift. I am not sure whether you can consider this polish as duochrome. It does shift from blue to gold, but I am just not sure. Anyway, this color is just gorgeous! The formula was nice and I only needed 2 layers for a pretty opaque look. When I first saw this gorgeous polish, I immediately thought of a warm day at the beach and I think it would be perfect for this occasion. It kind of reminds me of blue sea with a gorgeous glow of sand.

In the picture below, you can see the beautiful shift. Doesn’t it look gorgeous? I love wearing blue polishes and I certainly enjoyed this one.

Next up is Smooth Gem, which is a gorgeous orange with a pretty golden glow. I think this polish would be perfect for a summer night out! Also it would look so much better on a person with a gorgeous tanned skin. Let’s be honest, I am quite pale and my skin tone doesn’t do this shade a justice. The formula of this color was a little bit different. It was much less opaque and I needed 3-4 layers for a good opacity. It was also thinner comparing to the blue one.

And here is a beautiful bottle shot of Smooth Gem. Loving the summery glow of it.

What do you guys think of these P2 Catch the Glow polishes?? Do they also remind you of hot, summer days?

I really wish this brand was more widely available. If you have family members in Germany, ask them for P2 polishes for your birthday ;) And my German readers, go and fetch some of the P2 Catch the Glow beauties. I also saw some really pretty blushes and bronzers :)

Have a lovely evening! Paulina Xx

Studded Pastel Nails – Born Pretty Store Studded Wheel

April 17, 2014 in Nail Art, Nails

Hello lovelies. Today just a quick post to show you these cute studded pastel nails I did this morning. Spring makes me wanna wear pastels all the time and I absolutely fell in love with the polishes I am about to show you.

Studded Pastel Nails

I started off with this gorgeous pink base, which is a nail polish by a German brand P2 called Little Princess. I just discovered this brand and I absolutely love it! The polishes have so many beautiful colors and textures and they are so opaque! I honestly didn’t expect such a good quality for polishes for under € 2!

Then using a striping tape, I made all the shapes. On my pinky and ring finger I have the beautiful China Glaze I’m Not Lion. Love using this glitter! On my middle and index finger I popped some pretty pastels! The green one is L’Oreal Color Riche Pistachio Drage and the purple bluish pastel is L’Oreal Color Riche Nouvelle Vague.

To add this soft look a little bit of edge, I added tiny, golden studs. They come from the Born Pretty Store and the direct link to the product is HERE. I love this wheel, because it comes with three different sizes and the studs are gold and silver. The studs I am using with this mani are 1.2mm (the other ones are 2mm and 3mm). The studs cost $3.95, which I think it’s a great price for the value. As you all know, I love the Born Pretty Store studs. They are great quality, lots of pieces inside and they actually never disappointed me. Highly recommend!

Golden Rose Galaxy – Swatches & International Giveaway

April 15, 2014 in Nails, Swatches

Hi sweet readers! Today’s post is all about the new Golden Rose Galaxy Collection. The collection features 4 different types of textured glitter polish and there are in total 32 shades, so plenty to choose from! Today I want to show you 3 beautiful Golden Rose Galaxy polishes. There is an international giveaway at the end of this post, so keep reading!

Golden Rose Galaxy International Giveaway

First up is the Shade no. 18. The producer describes it as a crystal sand shade. It has a matte, sandy texture with sparkle and glamorous shiny color glitters. I love the combination of gold and purple glitters in it. Besides the nightmarish application (the formula is very thick and it was hard to get an even layer), the nail polish is gorgeous and does indeed look very glamorous. 2 layers and no top coat.

Next up is the Shade no. 14 (oh, how I wish Golden Rose would finally give proper names to their polishes instead of using stupid numbers!). The producer describes this nail polish as colored matte texture base with dazzling and sparkle glitters. This one has definitely got a lovely texture! I had to wait for a couple of minutes until the polish was completely dry for the texture to show. I love the bigger pieces of glitter showing through the sandy texture. The application was much better and I put 3 thin layers with no top coat.

Golden Rose Galaxy no. 14

Saving best for last. Shade no. 12 has got to be my favorite! Just like the previous one it is a colored matte texture base with dazzling and sparkle glitters. This gorgeous, deep blue nail polish dries to a gorgeous texture and has amazing holographic pieces of glitter (you can see them a little bit in the bottle. I had a hard time photographing it). I have 3 layers here with no top coat.

Golden Rose Galaxy no. 12
