Picture Polish ~ Dandelion


Picture Polish ~ Dandelion
Pale leaf green scattered holo

I like my polishes bold and bright, so today’s polish is not a favourite. It’s a pretty leaf-y green, a really nice colour, it’s just not mine. I got my bottle of “Dandelion” in a grab bag, that’s why it’s on my nails today.

The formula seems thin and very sheer. It builds up though so I’m wearing two coats. The drying time was good, no worries there.

The colour and the name of the polish made it obvious to me that I needed to add flowers. The stamp is from the stamping plate “Floral BPX-L002”. I stamped with El Corazón’s stamping polish “White” and dotted the golden middles of the flowers with El Corazón’s stamping polish “Fragrant Mimosa”.

This is my final manicure including topcoat. The photo is taken with flash.

Dandelion on its own; two coats and no topcoat.

These are the polishes and the plate I used to make my manicure with.


I wouldn’t have picked Dandelion myself, but it’s not because it’s not a nice polish. It’s just not me.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Scattered holo
Overall impression: A bit sheer, but covers in two coat. Office friendly, I guess, haha!

Sinful Colors ~ Kobalt


Sinful Colors ~ Kobalt
Dark denim blue texture

Kobalt is from Kylie Jenner’s collection “Denim & Bling” from Summer 2016.

The formula is really good and so easy to work with. Coverage is good too – it does cover in one single coat! I applied two coats anyway, because that’s the way I like it best. The drying time is pretty good.

I bought some holographic stickers from Aliexpress recently and decided to try them today. I attached them by using a pair of tweezers. I had to use a pair of old chunky tweezers because the newer and handier tweezers disappeared magically in the process. I still don’t know where they are, which is really weird.

Here’s my final manicure including a layer of topcoat.

I forgot to mention that this polish doesn’t dry up super textured. One layer of topcoat didn’t make all the grittiness go away though.

This is a nice colour polish, I like it.


Number of coats: 2 but 1 is enough
Drying time: Pretty good
Finish: Textured
Overall impression: Good polish. Good colour, nice quality

KBShimmer ~ Deck the Claws


KBShimmer ~ Deck the Claws
Red with holographic microglitter

I am such a sucker for glittery red polishes, and I wear them all year long! “Deck the Claws” was part of KBShimmer’s holiday collection 2017 called “Holo-Day”.´

The formula is on the thick side but I often prefer that to the thinner formulas. I used two coats for full opacity and the drying time was good. The polish doesn’t dry up super flat so you need to apply two layers of topcoat to make it totally smooth. The polish isn’t super shiny when it dries up either, but a layer of topcoat makes all the glittery goodness come to life.

I had originally planned to stamp on it, but I changed my mind when I saw how pretty it was on my nails. I wore it on its own!

So here’s two coats and a layer of topcoat. The photo is taken in ordinary daylight, no sun.

Isn’t it just pretty? I really love polishes like this one!

I’m not really that used to wear a polish all on its own, but it’s nice once in a while.
