Kics Nailpolish Swiss Winter

 
 
Swiss Winter is a "off white" nailpolish ait ha slight shimmer/glitter to it. And by "off white" I mean it's more of a greyish white, it's not thw usual WHITE white, this goes more off to the grey side of white? Does it make any sesne at all?
Anyeay, this have a semi matt finish, and in certain light you'll see small glitterflecks and some shimmer, It's not much, but it does something with the polish!
It dries really fast, but goes on a bit streaky so you have to paint thin coats so you get an even result. you don't need much tho, It's only two coats on the pictures.
 
I bought this some years ago in hope for a good white nailpolish that I could use as a base for some colors, and to use when I do try on nailart. It's not the white I was after but I'm kinda glad I found it.
Sadly I think Kicks has discontinued it, because I bought this on a sale for 20 sek (aprox $2/$3) some time ago, and I haven't seen it since.

China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

 

Yellow Polka Dot Bikini is a gorgeous neon yellow polish that came out in a china glaze collection some years ago if I'm not wrong.
It's a very sheer polish, so you'll need several layers to reach maximum capacity, even when you use a white polish as a base.It tries semi fast, and it comes down to like a semi matte kind of finish.
It doesn't hold very well, those times I've tried it, it have started to chip just hours after application. So I think a good base is a must with this, same to a good toppcoat.
Of course the pictures doesn't do the neon colour justice, since this really is a color you need to see with your own eyes to get the full effect of the neon.
 
I have no idea if this one is still available, or what it costs, since I got this from a friend of mine not to long ago :)
 
You might also wonder why my fingers have a redish tone to them down to my knuckles, Well. I have one of those dip in removers, aaaand I used a red polish in it, soo now the whole thing tints my fingers whener I want to remove a polish... And I did not notice this until I started to edit the pictures...

Nordic Cap Starnails NP24 + Gina Tricot Beautynails #86 Space Queen

What do you think about my makeshift Computerscreen/old magazine/ backdrop? Neat huh?
 
Nordic Cap NP24 is like a plain asphalt grey, It's a medium grey, if it makes sense?
It's really thin and needs a couple of coats to becom opaque on the nails, but it still dries decently quick, unless you're like me and have no patiencde what so ever..
It's a good polish for the price of $1 here in Sweden
 
Gina Tricot Beauty Nails in #86 Spacequeen is a holografic glitter topcoat. The consistency is goot, and you get a good amount og glitter on in one coat. It dries a bit slower, as I've noticed Gina tricots glitter topcoats tend to do, but if you do a coat of Seche Vite or Poshé (which I recoment to do to get out the full sparklefest out if this one) it's no problem at all. I've seen this type of topcoat everywhere, So I think that you can find it by other brands, since I don't think Gina Tricot carry this anymore..
it was 39 Sek
