Jumbo Bellini

Rimmel London’s purple glassfleck Baby Bellini works good as the base for some stamping with Cheeky’s Jumbo Plate and Barry M’s Gold Foil. I just love purple and gold together in nail art ๐Ÿ™‚

Rimmel London’s Baby Bellini

Rimmel London has released a small line ofย ย Cocktail Colour glassfleck shimmery polishes. I ordered two from Asos and one of them broke in transit and now they’re all gone… Too bad as I like this one a lot and would probably have enjoyed the others as much.

This purple one is called Baby Bellini and is just incredibly awesome. I sure have a weakness for purple shimmers and glassflecks ๐Ÿ™‚ application was flawless although three coats were needed for opacity.


Depend’s 313

There are few swedish polishes I really feel like I need to own based on the color, look and finish. Depend’s 313 is a deep purple with green shimmer and it’s one of a few exceptions.

I love the formula; application was flawless, it was opaque at two coats and dried reasonably fast.

Revlon’s Ruby Ribbon

As mentioned before I found Revlon’s Ruby Ribbon in a clearance bin and decided to try it out despite my hestitation about the color itself being a bit… old. Ruby Ribbon is a dark ruby red shimmer that dries to a satiny matte finish. Application wise this polish was flawless; went on like butter, opaque at three thin coats and it did dry a little bit slower than other mattes in my experience.

The last picture is taken with a top coat on.


H&M’s Moody Model

H&M’s Moody Model really is more of a autumn polish generally but I love the heavy pigmentation and lovely lovely dark teal leaning on blue. Application was almost flawless, it needed two generous coats for opacity and dried reasonably fast.

My camera was really acting up for these pictures… sorry about the quality.

Minty nudes

As I said…. Gina Tricot’s Nude isn’t a polish I would wear by itself but I decided to try creating some kind of nail art with it to see if I liked to use it for other purposes besides underwear. I used Nordic Cap’s 20 and 23 for the teal and purple dots and Wet N Wild’s I Need A Refresh-Mint for the blue dots.
