Top 5 Fall Favorite Nailpolishes!

Hello everyooone! I actually planned on doing an actual nailpost today but because of my work all my nails broke and they're really short at the moment :( So I figured I'd do a little Fall Favorites nailpolish edition for you guys! Let's go :)

Let's start off with number 5, Herôme - Kingston.
Kingston is a goldenbeige/champagne holographic polish that matches all of the fall 2012 fashion! Pictures HERE

Next up, number 4, Catrice - Caught On The Red Carpet.
COTRC is a dark jelly red, suitable for honestly any season of the year and I really like it (that's also why half of my bottle is empty). Pictures HERE

Number 3, Essence - Walk On The Wild Side.
WOTWS is a dark green polish with tiny little green shimmers. Very pretty! I actually haven't had the chance to swatch this yet, but I'm excited about trying this one out :D

Almost there! Number 2, China Glaze - Smoke And Ashes
Smoke And Ashes is a GORGEOUS polish from the CG Hungergames collection and I absolutely adore this polish! It looks like a starry night in summer. A black base with duochrome little shimmers shifting from blue to turquoise to green. Amazing. Pictures HERE

Number 1...drumroll, please...China Glaze - Purr-fect Plum!
I do not only like Purr-fect Plum because of its purr-fect name, but also very very much because of the purr-fect colour! This colour screams fall 2012 to me. Walk around my school for just 10 minutes and you will see this colour in sooo many outfits, it's crazy. This wine-purple coloured polish should be in everyone's stash this fall! Purr-fect Plum is from the CG On Safari collection :) Pictures HERE

While I was making these pictures Luna decided to join me, here are some pictures :D

she looks so mad, lol!

That was it, ofcourse I have many many many more fall favorites but I just wanted to show you these five. Tell me, do you like these kind of posts? What would you like to see on my blog? Let me know in the comments :)

Alpha Better Hologram

A big welcome to all of my new followers that found me through girlscene or my giveaway, thanks for following me! Today I have a very pretty layering mani for you guys. I showed you this polish a little while ago and since everyone really liked it I decided to swatch my other Shaka polish (Hologram Nude) as well. Because these holos are not very opaque I decided to layer it over two coats of Essence - Alpha Better Gamma (wich i'll show in the end of this post). Here's the final look!

in shade, no flash.

more sunlight, yay! no flash.

sunlight, with flash. 

a bit blurry (sparkles!), no flash. 


I love holographics. This is just a perfect pretty pinky polish. In normal light only a little bit of the holographic rainbow is visible, but in sunlight...wow! Such a pretty effect. 
So what I did was apply two layers of Shaka - Hologram Nude over two layers of Essence - Alpha Better Gamma from the Class of 2013 LE. Here's a picture of that one on it's own:

another Sem-kittypic!

ABG is a very cute salmony pink, really girly! When I saw this one at the store I immediately knew I wanted it because I don't have any polishes like this one and erhm well I'm an addict..woops. Anyways, I really like the colour of this polish because it's just sooo cuuuute :D

As some of you know, Luna had a brother. Simba. Unfortunately, last christmas, he was hit by a car and now he's not with us anymore... RIP sweetie, I hope kitty-heaven is amazing.

MAX - Rouge with China Glaze - Stone Cold

A nail post, yay! Today I have a very fashionable and fall-proof mani for you guys :D I saw THIS post on Lucy's Stash and I absolutely loved the colour combination so I tried to change it up and bit aaaand here's my result:

daylight, with flash. 

close-up, no flash. 

daylight, no flash (colour accurate)



So as a base I used 2 coats of MAX - Rouge, a jelly dark red. These polishes only cost about 50 cents and the quality is great so I love these! Then I used tape to create the little triangles with China Glaze - Stone Cold from the Hungergames collection, a very pretty matt polish. After all of this had dried I used a thick layer of topcoat and voilà, all done! I love the result. It's like a half moon mani...only with a triangle! Ofcourse, it's not perfect but this is actually the first time I tried a mani created with scotch tape. Anyways, if you want to try this out and post it on your blog too, please link Lucy for the wonderfull idea :D
