Reviews ~ Finished Products October 2014

'Happy Halloween! Today I share the things I finished up this month. Let's take a look.'

'First two items. My OPI Puerto Vallarta Violeta did act goopy and thick on my nails the last time I'd used it this month. I bought it years ago, and it's probably time to go. Not sure what I paid for it.
The other item is an Palmolive showercream in Almond. I paid only 1 for it at my local grocerystore. I love the Palmolive showercreams.'

'Yes, you see it well. It was lippy month for me. The first 3 items I got, again, years ago in a surprise box from Ebay, so I don't know what the normal retail prices are. I loved my CO Bigalow Root Beer Lipbalm, and I'm sad that it needs to go. It's totally empty.
Then two Bonnebell lippies from the same box. I believe it's from the same range. Not sure if this is still available, but I loved the gloss version of it. The balm not so much.
Last lippy I finished this month is an Limited Edition Cream Lipstick by Yves Rocher. It was the color Tommette, and I didn't like it that much on my skintone, so I mixed it with other lipsticks. I can't remember what I exactly paid for it, but hey, it isn't available anymore anyway.'

'That's it. Take care everybody. Have a safe Halloween.'

Purchases ~ Kruidvat 1+1 Free Sales : NYC In A Minute Lavender Blossom and Parma Violet

'During the same 1+1 Sale at the Dutch Kruidvat in september, I picked also up a few NYC In A Minute Nailpolishes. Not everyone loves the In A Minute Polishes, but I don't have a lot of trouble with them. NYC In A Minute Polishes are 2,49 each, so this was good. Here are the colors I picked up.'

'Here's one coat of Lavender Blossom. It's your typically lilac/ lavender color. I picked this up, because I needed a quik dry lilac color. As you can tell, the color should be better with two coats, but in real life, the shine through isn't that noticeable. Hey, it's quik dry, so for that second coat is plenty of time too.'

'And here's one coat of Parma Violet. It's an purple with red undertones, and perfect for Fall. I don't need more purples at this point, but an quik dry one is always welcome. ^_^ You can get away with one coat. In real life, the streakyness isn't that noticeable, but for being sure, it's better to use two. For the quikness, it isn't that hard to do two.'

'Overall I love the NYC In A Minute Ones for if you're in need for an quik manicure. I'm a bit bummed, cause they discontinued Sidewalkers here. That's my favorite grey color, wich I used allready to dead. I'm glad I got Sidewalker's look-a-like Prey Of Grey too, but that one was a Limited Edition, so defenately not available anymore. Oh well. These two makes it right.'

DIY ~ Keep Track With Your Worn Nailpolishes

'I started this month with an Worn Nailpolishes Journal. This way I try to keep track on wich polishes I really wear, so I can do my future cleanouts more easy. Less worn polishes should be given away or end up in the garbage, if the polish is too bad. This way, I can also see on the icons if the polish is really being loved or not so much. The more I wear a polish, the less I have the need to clean that one out. (until I hit pan on it or it dries out by itself)  Besides that, I keep an eye out for repurchasing the really loved ones.'

'Here a peak for what my journal looks like so far. Between the lines, I spelled "oktober" in Dutch, so don't tell me if I didn't spell it correctly or not. As you can tell, I love Fig and Sidewalkers very much. Greige! The New Beige I didn't like that much. But opinions can change. Offcourse, this concept isn't finished yet.'

Purchases ~ Kruidvat 1+1 Free Sales : Sinful Colors

'During another 1+1 Sale at the Dutch Kruidvat in september, I decided to pick up a few Sinful Colors Nailpolishes. Not every Kruidvat carries this brand, I noticed, so I recommend my Dutch readers to search in their biggest, local Kruidvat. Sinful Colors Polishes are 1,99 each, so this was a steal. Here are the colors I picked up.'
From left to right: Fig, Island Coral, Glass Pink, and Easy Going
From left to right: Love Nails, Hottie, Savage, and Be Happy

'Offcourse I swatched the colors. Most of them needed two coats, and sometimes the brush is a bit wonky. They paint on smooth, nevertheless. I love Hottie and Fig very much at this point.'

'I used Fig, like I said, earlier this month, and I fell in love with that color. Pity enough I forget to picture Fig on my nails, but here are the colors on my swatch wheel.'

Purchases ~ Trekpleister 1+1 Free Sales : Catrice Ultimate Laquers The Next Level #64, #65, #66, #67 (Fall 2014)

'There was a nice sale at the Dutch Trekpleister past September: buy one nailpolish get one free. So I went a bit nuts with Catrice's newest regular Fall colors. Catrice Ultimate Laquers are 2,99 each. (Except for one, and that's Blue and A Half Men. I wasn't sure to pick that one up, cause I'm not wearing tons of blue. In the end I picked it after the sale).'
From left to right: #64 It's Time For Lovender, #65 Be My Violetine, #66 Blue And A Half Men, #67 Greyday! Greyday!

'Like I said earlier, the brushes could be better at some colors. But still, the colors in this post are gorgeous. Maybe not that special anymore, still they scream Fall to me. The only color from this post wich needed two coats is Blue And A Half Men. However, I don't regret to get Blue And A Half Men, but it's not the favorite one. All the other ones could be worn in one coat, and goes on very well.'

'You can guess my favorites, I think. Defenately the purples and the black.'
