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!

H&M Dust & Diamonds

H&M’s Dust & Diamonds leans more towards dust than diamonds, haha. It’s a brownish taupe color; really chic and sophisticated, yet edgy. I bought my bottle four years ago, maybe.

On the pictures below are base coat, 2 coats of Dust & Diamonds, one coat of SV.

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.

Gina Tricot Zinfandel

Yaaay! We’re finally at the end of the ABC-challenge. Today’s letter is Z, and today’s polish is Gina Tricot’s Zinfandel. Gina Tricot is a Swedish clothes store who started selling their own collection of nail polishes hmm last year, maybe? Or was it in 2011?

Anyway, Zinfandel is a beautiful burgundy, sort of a dark red color with a little brown in it. Creme finish, smooth application. Below are two coats of Zinfandel with one coat of Seche Vite top coat. Unfortunately it stained a lot when removing it, and I had to go over my nails an extra time with a cotton pad and nail polish remover. That’s too bad. But since it’s so pigmented, maybe it will work well as a stamping polish? I’ll try that some day.

Thank you for joining me during my ABC-challenge! I will now take a break from challenges who are as long as this one, and I’ll also start writing in both Swedish and English. Enjoy!

Nah, I’ll keep writing in English. I need to practice.

H&M Stuck in yellow

The letter Y in my ABC-challenge will be represented by my favourite yellow polish, simply because I don’t own a polish whose name begins with a Y. One has to work with what one’s got!

Here’s H&M’s Stuck In Yellow. I bought it last year for 10 SEK (very cheap!) and I didn’t expect it to be as good as it is, given the low price and the fact that most yellow polishes are really streaky and almost impossible to apply evenly. On the pictures below are two coats of Stuck In Yellow. Base coat is OPI Natural Nail and top coat is Seche Vite. Huge cred to Seche Vite for super quick drying time and for making the polish so much more smooth looking.

Mavala Toulouse

For the letter T in my ABC-challenge, I’ll show you Mavala’s Toulouse. I’m not usually that into pink nailpolish, but this is a great bubblegum pink color! First coat dries really fast, second coat dries fast at the surface too. On the pictures below are three coats, and one coat of  SV.
