“I will stone you stone you, wrap my arms around you, I will stone you stone you, my little halo!”

Do you recognise the song? It’s “Halo” by Soil (totally NOT Beyonce! 😀 ) and it’s what this polish reminds me of. It feels like having a halo around my hands, and I’m completely stoned by the look right now. If it’s sunny tomorrow, I’ll probably run into poles because I’m looking at my tips all the time xD The pictures don’t capture the whole awesomeness, they are too silvery. In real life, it clearly looks green, like strong mint-flavoured chewing gum.

There is a whole little collection of holos at the drugstore near my university, and I’m definitely planning to get some more! *excited!*

See you soon!


Crazy Japanese GLITTER!

This, ladies and gentlemen, is why I so many people are excited about Japanese nailpolish:


Glitter!  Holographic awesomeness! Both in one! *faints*

Of course, I had to play with my matte topcoat:

Index: Canmake 23. Toxic green glitter. This looks also very cool over black and matte!

Middle: Perfect Nail PNN-16. Purple jelly with lots of different kinds of glitter. Great for layering as well as on it’s own – it totally rocks! Love it with a matte topcoat – it looks like a sequined party dress!

Ring: Vernis a ongles eclair – #15 Snow Dome’s Christmas Tree. It’s the best example of how crappy lighting can ruin the look of a color: When I saw it at the shop, I only  thought “Oh, what a pretty grey-green shimmer. Could be a nice winter color” , but as soon as the sun hits it, it’s a BAM! in-your-face  mint green holo! Mattyfing ruins the holo effect, but it’s still very pretty.

Pinkie: Vernis a ongles eclair – #11 Maharadja Gold dancer. Silver holo packed with gold glitter. It’s even better matte, and the glitter is quite unique to me. It really looks like little pieces of leaf gold! This is so going to be my mani for Christmas and New Years Eve ^_^
