Viva La Nails!

My package from Viva La Nails arrived last week. :o)

 I got the Free-Blogger-Package and since it was 2,95 Pounds postage fee I ordered two other items with it and so I paid about 7 Pounds altogether.

It is a big package with stickers, glitters, dazzlings and water decals.

Tomorrow I´ll show you what I have tried to create with the set yet.

La Roche - Posay *Vernis Cristal* 04

  with flash
without flash


This is one of my old polishes. I don´t know where it´s from. I´m sure I haven´t bought it.

It is La Roche-Posay Vernis Cristal No. 4. The color is supposed to bewearable for 5 days.

It is a very nice color: a  reddish purple with a blue, mother-of-pearl - like shine. It reflects objects in blue, especially when my fingers are in the shade.

It was easy to apply and it dried really really fast, even the second coat. I used two coats for the photo. One is enough, but with two the polish is shinier and seems "deeper".

Catrice * 280 * London´s Weather Forecast

Für D. ;)

London´s Weather Forecast is a gray with light shimmer. It is a nice and elegant color.

I applied it yesterday and it is already a little chipped. Also the drying time was quite long. The surface dried fast, but underneath it was still not dry.

In daylight one coat is enough, but on the picture (with flash) it looks not good. Maybe I´ll apply a second coat tonight and show you a new picture.

Shoes, Shoes and Shoes (Haul)

I hate shopping for clothes and shoes!

I was looking for shoes that I can wear in rainy weather for a few months.

Last week, while shopping with a friend, I finally bought 3 pairs of shoes to reasonable prices. Deichmann, Humanic and  Madonna were the stores we found them.

Now I got boots for the fall, pumps for the fall and reduced summer ballerinas.
So I won´t have to go shoe-shopping for the next 3 years or so :o)

I - Haul (Douglas, DM)

I went shopping again last week.
Here´s what I bought:

  • Douglas
    • Catrice "London´s Weather Forecast"
    • XX by Mexx Lovesome (free sample)
  • The Body Shop
    • Rainforest Balance Shampoo for oily hair (mini size)

  •  DM
    • some reduced nail art stickers and stones from Essence for my boxes
    • reduced Essence nail polishes
      • 19 Rock n´Roll
      • 51 Let´s party ?
    • P2 Matte Top Coat
    • reduced tea: Wurzelsepp Rooibos Spicy Punch. I tried it yesterday and it´s gooood. It tastes like fruit punch.

And in a home decoration store I found this little cutie. I´ll give it to my Mom. My parents had a dachshund when I was a child. I remember that I wanted to take her for a walk a few times and she just wouldn´t go with me, we only came to the corner of the next street and then she refused to go any further and dragged me back home.

Catrice - I sea You!

This is my first planned post, I hope it works :)

You might have seen this on several other blogs before, but I just had to have this color! And I love it! It´s a turquoise green that reminds me of the Carribean Sea. Not that I have ever been there ;)

I thought that I´m not able to get Catrice because I did not know where I could buy it. But now they have the Catrice collection in every Douglas store. It´s not easy to find because it is a small display.

It is "normal" to apply, quite thick and it has been staying on my nails without chipping for several days now. Although I never use a base or top coat. I applied one coat.

For a lacquer that costs 2,50€ that´s quite an achievement.

I also bought "Sold out forever", the other, lighter green from Catrice, but haven´t tried it yet. There are so many colors I´ll have to swatch and review... :o)

My other Use of Nail Polish

I paint the little plastic boxes my mother buys. They are boxes with rocaille beads. My Mom crochets necklaces with them and I paint them when they´re empty.
