The Models Own Beetlejuice collection!

Emerald Black, Purple Blue, Pinky Brown, Aqua Violet, Golden Green & 3in1.

I gave you a little glimps of my new darlings in the previous post, and now it is time for some more pictures.

These are the five polishes from the Models Own Beetlejuice collection. Five duochromatic nail polishes that just knocked me off my feet when I first saw the promo pictures. So I couldn't keep myself from ordering them instantly when released. I got to hold tight in my wallet from now on. Is has been a little too mych shopping for polishes lately....

Anyway, I ordered these from the Models Own webpage. I chose the package where you get all five of them plus a 3-in-1 base/top/gloss polish for £20. Right now you get a free black kohl pencil as well.

I haven't had time to test them yet, this week has been sooo busy.  It takes a lot of effort to turn 30. :-)

I think my favourites are the blueish Aqua Violet and the dark Emerald Black. Which one is yours?

Spreadin' some love...

Yesterday I turned 30!! Yay!! I had a marvelous birthday with some friends and family. And the celebration will continue this weekend. Can't wait for it to start!! :-)

At the end of the day I got a message from MK at Polish and Pigments that she had given me a Liebster Blog Award. What a great way to end my day. It always warms my heart when I get positive feedback on my blog. I fell asleep with a smile on my face...

So today I want to spread some love, to MK and to all you other readers, and you get it in form of a nail polish necklace. This is a piece I made a couple of weeks ago with IsaDora Silver Sparkles and some Zoya polishes from the Sunshine collection from this year. The word Kärlek is swedish for love...

This is yet another piece that will collect dust in my drawer, but I don't care, i love making them.

Take care!!

A quickie with Nfu Oh 58 vs Nubar 2010

Just a short post today and this is a comparison between Nubar 2010 and Nfu Oh #58.

When my Nfu Ohs arrived the other day I had a manicure with the brown Misa When You Say my Name ( from last year's fall collection What I Like About You). The Misa polish was coated with Nubar 2010. And when I unpacked my Nfu Oh opals it struck me that #58 was almost identical to Nubar 2010 on my nails. So I had to take a picture.

The manicure was a couple of days old so the polish had chipped a bit. But I wanted you to see anyway...

So this is Nubar 2010 over a brown polish on my nails and the bottle is Nfu Oh #58.  You really can't tell that it's not the same polish on the nails as in the bottle right?

Some black n white Nfu Oh swatches

I got my precious Nfu Ohs the other day as I told you in the previous post. And I wanted a quick way to get a glipms of the different polishes, both on a black and white background. So, I painted my nails half black, half white and layered the Nfu Ohs on top.

This is a really horrible manicure, but it's a great and fast way to get to know your new darlings.

Something that surprised me was that they are so differently pigmented. As you see on the pictures some are full of color even on a white background, and some of them are almost in a clear base. The size of the glitters and flakes are also different. The next thing that struck me is that # 50 and #54 are almost identical, eventhough they look a lot different from eachother when looking on the bottles. It's just a slight divergence in the base color.

My opinions

# 58: A bit of a disappointment. This is almost a dupe of Nubar 2010 when layered on a dark base.

#55: Actually a surprise. The one that was the least interesting in the bottle, but really awesome over black. Green glitter and orange flakies, what a hit on Halloween.

#54: Really gorgeous, duochrome flakes in green and blue in a clear base. Love it!

#53: I'm in love!! Amazing blue glitter, pink flakes in a slight blue base. Soooo beautiful!!

#51: A really pigmented purple base, whith duochrome flakes in orange and green? I think this one needs to be layered over a purple to be all that it can be.

#50: Really beautiful, but almost identical to #54, except for the pale purple base. But I really don't think it's worth to have them  both in the collection.

#45: Really breathtaking. This one on top of a red will not be for the shy one.

#83: The only one from the Glitter series. Microscopic pink, blue, and purple glitter in a sheer pale pink base. Gorgeous, but I thought it would be a bit more pigmented. This one will need to be used as a layering polish.

Which one is your favourite?

Not swedish?
