Something Really Pretty..

Hi all!

How are you all doing on this grey and rainy Saturday? I'm still a bit tired from my day with Michelle and Michèle, but it was so worth it! We scored quite a few nice things so I'm sure you'll see them soon on one of our blogs :)

Today I have a polish for you that is a little more expensive than the polish I normally buy, but the minute I saw it in store, I actually already knew I had to have it. I'm not really into these LE's and I don't really get the whole Jade hunt that's been going on (as it sells for over $200 on eBay - yikes!). Anyway, without further ado... I present you: Chanel Nouvelle Vague!

Chanel Nouvelle Vague, three coats in daylight. The first picture isn't really color accurate, that's why I added the second pic. My ringfinger shows the color best. Nouvelle Vague is a pale light blue or turquoise polish with very subtle shimmer. This is three coats, but it would have been good (as in: no VNL or bumps) in two coats. Application was a little tricky since the first coat went on streaky and a little bumpy.

Nouvelle Vague is a part of the latest Chanel LE which also contains Mistral and Rivièra, but I didn't get those because, well, they're pink (and I own too many pinks already). I love love love Nouvelle Vague and I might even end up buying another bottle..

And a little preview from what's coming up at Nailswatches:
The Ciaté Summer Collection 2010.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

And The Winner Is...

Hi all!

So I finally have the results from the nailart contest! It was a close call, even before this extra voting.. After excluding the votes that were not according to the rules, Michelle's peacock mani and Thriszha's puppy design were on shared first place.

After voting in the last two days, it was only one vote in difference.. And I had to exclude some votes (again!) so it was very tight.. The two designs were so close, the winner only has one vote more than the number two. That's what I'd call close!

Anyway, without further ado, I present to you.. The winner of the first Nailswatches nailart contest!

Congratulations Thriszha! I will be contacting you by email for your address.

Thank you all for submitting your designs and voting in these two voting sessions!

Revvvolution Shows Its Holoness!

Hi all!

Eerder heb ik al foto's van Color Club Revvvolution gepost, maar daarop was de holo in de lak niet echt goed te zien. Een tijdje geleden heb ik Revvvolution als full mani gedragen en gelukkig scheen de zon toen!

I posted pics of Color Club Revvvolution earlier, but the pics didn't show the holo in the polish too well. A little while ago, I wore Revvvolution for a full mani and luckily, the sun came out!

Color Club Revvvolution, I believe this was three coats. It shows more holo irl, but that was really hard to capture. In the last picture, there was no direct sunlight hitting the nail.

I already commented on the formula in my other post, so this is it for now :)

Thanks for stopping by!
