Then I went to Matas (drugstore) and then I went crazy! Well, not really, but I bought some polishes which are a bit more expensive than I usually wanna pay..
And in pieces they had their polishes on sale for 10 kr. ( approx $1,94).. What's a girl gotta do?
|Maxfactor Wicked White, H&M Summer Nails (it's the green/blue-ish one I was interested in - the rest is meh), H&M Cracked Nail Polish, Pieces Silver Lightning (as far as I recall) and a Depend Cracked Effect in lime green|
But I think 1½ week without buying a single polish is kind of decent enough.. I had been out shopping and resisting polishes in that time.. AND I'm not sure when I'll go to Holland, maybe there'll be another month before I go there and that would be waay too long time to wait :p (can you feel that I need to justify this? haha)
A quick swatch of the interesting polishes:
|H&M Metallic Blue (yeah, H&M is not that good at naming their polishes in a correct way), Wicked White and the Pieces-one|
The silver Pieces one has gold in it too, and that's what draw me to it! It reminded me of a swatch of some new OPI polish, but I can't remember which.. Anyway I LOVE this!
And Metallic Blue is just awesome! It reminds me of a mix between Essence Glisten Up! (but without flakies) and China Glaze Atlantis (but without holo).. This is filled with what I think must be glass flecks..?
I tried to layer it over different polishes, because it's pretty sheer..
|H&M Metallic Blue layered over (from L-R): Oh My Gosh! Apple Green, a baby blue Maybeline Colorama, a blue Rimmel polish, a black W'n'W and ind the end: 4 coats on it's own..|
With these swatches I almost used 1/4th of the bottle! Damn you teeny tiny bottles! I might have to buy another of this Summer Nail set, just to get a back up bottle of this one.. The bottles in it are only 3,2 ml :S
/Edit/ Somehow I forgot to include the pic of the crackle polishes in action.. it's here now :p
I really like them =) The H&M one had a great formula, a bit thinner than the Depend crackle, so it's easier to work with!/Endofedit/
I H&M I also bought these ear rings.. I love the different kind of insects and I would loove to do a nail art design inspired them!
|Ear rings with creepy insects and more normal 'happy and fluffy' insects and animals|
Oh, and later that day I found an online beauty store based inside of Europe and with free shipping.. I can't resist that.. So I bought some more :p I'll ramble more about that place when I recieve my stuff - if I like the place.. If I do like it I have a feeling that I will order from there a lot..
Allright, I'll stop now..
Do you think my break of my no buy wass 'justified'? Would you have done the same? haha.. And do you have any suggestions as to how I could do a nail art design based off of my new earrings?
Have fun and take care =)
