ysl peace green (boho stone)

peace green is this heaven of a polish from last year's ysl boho stone collection.

i am crazy for polishes with iridescent shimmer. they catch my eye from a mile away, doesn't matter which shade. i don't know what is it about them that i find so mesmerizing, but i do. and peace green isn't just iridescent, it is, indeed, green.

well, to be more accurate, it is a light, aqua-type green, and the shimmer appears pink around the edges under appropriate light. for me it is a must-have must-have. formula is a bit on the thin side, but easy to work with.

essence julia (nail art twins)

essence is quite known for their toppers, and i own a bunch of them. recently, i laid julia from their ancient nail art twins collection to rest, so here are some of the combinations i made with it.

julia is a clear-based polish with hexagonal and micro glitter of the same, pinkish-purplish shade.

new in: june, july, august 2017

i am still being a good girl, i believe. along the few last months, i managed to snatch ysl blanc arty and asphalt grey. on that topic, i hate that i couldn't get any of their newer polishes since they don't send them everywhere. annoying. picture polish gala was a present from my bff because she doesn't like how it looks on her.

in august i made a nailland order, and got a bunch of picture polishes: allure, clouds, lime lite, rose and voodoo.

china glaze frostbite (ski)

wow, this polish is old. frostbite comes from a holiday china glaze collection, ski, back in 2007.

frostbite is such an awesome polish that can never look as good in the pictures as in real life. a stunning, cobalt blue, with that crazy "lit from within" type of shimmer. so special and cool.

it is metalic, so visible brush strokes do occur, but nothing too annoying. i am very happy i have it.

picture polish lime light (neon shades)

i am not so much into neons, but i have a soft spot for greens, so i had to take picture polish lime light from their revamped neon shades collection.

lime lite originally appeared in 2013, but got a rebirth in 2016. and i am happy for that! it is an awesome, bright green. formula is very decent for this type of polish, the first coat is a bit sheer but it builds up nicely. there are no bold spots or visible brushstrokes. 

it is such a great summer/beach polish and i got it just in time, before the summer ends!
