Rimmel 053 Apricot Punch

Good morning! Today’s polish is a true peachy delight: Rimmel 053 Apricot Punch. I bought it in London three years ago, and the formula is still good.  But the best thing with this polish is that it’s scented. When the polish is dry a sweet fruity scent appears. On the pictures below are two coats of Apricot Punch. I think I skipped the top coat, since I wanted to be able to sense the scent. For more (pink) polishes, visit Princessemma‘s pink thursday.

Swedish summary: God morgon! Dagens lack är en härlig persika. Rimmel 053 Apricot Punch köpte jag i London för 3 år sedan. Formulan är fortfarande bra! Det bästa med lacket är som sagt att det är doftsatt, med en söt, fruktig doft som jag inte stör mig på. Wiiie!

FNUG Psychedelic

Today’s polish is an amazing holographic polish. Perfect for Skimmerskuggan‘s Holo Friday. Here’s FNUG Psychedelic. A silver holographic polish with fine linear rainbows. The pictures are taken outdoors (in March, sorry for the delay ^^) during a very sunny day. On the pictures below are one coat of FNUG Aqua Fix Base Coat, two coats of FNUG Psychedelic, no top coat.

China Glaze I’m With The Lifeguard

Good evening! Today was a very gray day. Not very summerlike, or perhaps very much just like Swedish summer. Also, my bra bracket is a bit crooked, so it’s constantly poking me. Not very comfortable.

Anywho, here’s today’s polish. It’s a green one, perfect for Green Wednesday at Karin’s, and not just any green one: China Glaze I’m With The Lifeguard. It’s a bright neon green polish with shimmer in it. Two coats over white, Seche Vite over that. The bottom picture is more color accurate, while the top picture shows the brightness. The shimmer wasn’t my cup of tea, unfortunately.

The search for the perfect neon green continues!

L’Oreal 612 Green Couture

Hello! Today’s Wednesday and I am super tired. But, a cup of coffee will cheer me up and then it’s time for a walk in the sun. Again. I love this time of year! I really do. Now I’m just tired because I haven’t slept enough. Today I’m participating in Karin‘s Green Wednesday,  and here’s my entry:

L’Oreal’s Color Riche 612 Green Couture (long name!) is a beautiful shade of green. Perfect medium, just yellow enough, green creme polish. It was a bit annoying to paint with though, the brush kind of scraped the previous layer, so that small patches was formed. On the pictures below are two coats of Green Couture and one coat of SV.

China Glaze Sun Worshiper

Hello you! Today we’ve reached S in my ABC-challenge, and I’ll now show you China Glaze’s Sun Worshiper. It’s a bright neon orange polish, reaaally glowy and neon-y. Here’s two coats of Sun Worshiper over two coats of OPI’s Alpine Snow, and one coat of Seche Vite top coat. My camera didn’t manage to capture the brightness of this polish, so I’ll show you cellphone pictures later. But I love it! It’s like radioactive pre-sliced cheese.

Lancôme Blue enigma

Here’s my B-entry for the ABC-challenge. Lancôme’s Le Magnetique ‘Blue enigma’ came out in 2008, I think, for Lancôme’s winter collection? The color is beautiful but a bit too teal for my personal preference. Also, magnetic polishes aren’t really my cup of tea.


The star-shaped pattern is almost completely smudged out when top coat (Seche Vite) is applied though. Look at the index finger. I don’t know if this happens to all magnetic polishes, but this one is best worn without a top coat.
