Edding L.A.Q.U.E ~ Super Supernova

Edding L.A.Q.U.E ~ Super Supernova
Pink, blue and peach glitter in a clear base

Today I'm going to show you a polish that was a Christmas present from my boyfriend. It came as a set of two polishes, and I've already showed you the first one of the set, "Vibrant Venus". Click here to check out that lovely polish.

I decided to layer this glitter over a classic red creme from Essence called "Do You Speak Love?"

This is one easy coat over the ready. The photo is taken in my lightbox to show off the lovely glitter.

Here's "Do You Speak Love?" alone; this is one single coat and no added topcoat yet. I would definitely have added another layer if I should have worn it alone, but it wasn't really necessary under the glitter.

Starrily ~ Cat Eyes


Starrily ~ Cat Eyes
Medium blue linear holo

Today I'm wearing a gorgeous medium blue strong linear holographic. The formula is really good and so is the coverage. I used two coats for full opacity and the drying time is really good.

The stamp is from Moyra's stamping plate "27-Dreamology". I stamped with a darker blue stamping polish from Colour Alike called "B. a Rainy Mood".

Here's the final result, including a layer of topcoat. The photo is taken in the sunshine.

I used the small and the big heart designs. The beautiful base colour is an oldie from Born Pretty Store. It's number 24. The pink stamping polish is also a BPS product :)

Let me show you the final result.


I think this looks really awesome.


This is number 24 alone; two coats and no topcoat yet.

H & M ~ Cinnamon Spark


H & M ~ Cinnamon Spark
Orange to pink duochrome with a strong blue shimmer

Here's one of the other polishes I bought last time I visited H & M. The colour is really hard to describe but the base is pink with an orange to gold to almost brown shift. There's also added a strong blue shimmer to the mix. Spectacular!

The formula is good and so is the coverage. I applied two coats for full opacity. The drying time is good.

I added blue flowers on top of the pretty polish. The flowers are water decals from Aliexpress.

Here's the final result in the sun.

H & M ~ No Shrinking Violet


H & M ~ No Shrinking Violet
Blue to violet duochrome with shimmer

H & M makes great polishes! They have a big range of colours and finishes and the price is good. I bought four polishes last time I visited H & M. Today I'm wearing the first of them.

The formula is good and so is the coverage. I applied two coats for full opacity. The drying time is good.

The stamp is from the stamping plate "KADS Geometry 007". I stamped with a new matte stamping polish from El Corazón: "st-matte-106".

Here's the final result.
