(Nail Art) Prizes/ Giveaways - Thanks Kruidvat and Catrice

'Somewhere in August I won a Catrice set with all new Fall season make uppies in there. This giveaway was on the Dutch Kruidvat Facebookpage. Omg, I'm feeling so lucky, cause I found two of their new Ultimate Laquer The Next Level polishes in the bag as well. Oh, how I love their polishes... I know, I didn't even do nailpolish swatches from their Summer 2015 shades, and I apologize, but I wasn't really in the mood to blog that much on here lately. I can't promise anything, but let's hope that will change. Aaaanyway, let's get into the video I made from this prize and their pics....'

'But, what's inside?!?!'

Reviews ~ Finished Products July 2015

'Month is allready over, time goes so fast. Didn't plan a lot this month, and I apologize. Let's take a look what I've finished.'

'First the big things. Used up a Shower and Oil from the Action. It was 1,79 for a big bottle. Your skin get's a little greasy with this, so I don't want to repurchase. Next a Hegron Sunflower Everyday Shampoo also from the Action. It was 1, and for the price I can't complain. It get's the hair clean.
Next a Dove hair shampoo sample, wich was pretty good. Lastly a 1 Nailpolish remover from my local Dutch drugstore Etos. This is the remover I always purchase, cause it never leaves you with white rims around the cuticles.'

'Then loads of lippies. The Bonnebell lipglosses I had for ages and I don't know what I paid for them, but they defenately need to go.
Also finished a NYC Applelicious lipbalm in Apple Blossom, wich I bought a month ago from the Action for only 0,99. I stocked up on them, cause I really like them. Then a Limited Edition Yves Rocher Lipstick. 
The square lipstick was from the Big Bazar and only €1. Brand is Pink Tease I believe. Never want to repurchase these, cause the most of them I had, broke in my purse, and so did this one. Last lipstick was also from the Big Bazar for 1 and it was from their Perfect Touch line. I liked the formula, very creamy, but like most of these cheap-o lipsticks, the packaging breaks in your purse.'

'Lastly finished a package of 0,19 face whipes. Can't repurchase these, cause the Action don't sell these anymore. However, whipes are bad for your face, so skip on products like these in the future.
I'll continue buying my cotton rounds from the Action for only 0,55. Also done is this belnding brush from ELF. Had it for years, but now the hair is coming out, so bye bye that one. 
Lastly I finished a bunch of samples as always.'

'And that's it! See ya next month...'

Reviews ~ Finished Products April, May, June 2015

'Pfew, it's been a while when I posted something. For some reason I needed a big break from here. So time for a few Finished Products from April, May and June. Stay tuned.'

'First things I used up, arethose two. The first item is a Yves Rocher Bodylotion wich I got for Christmas from a good friend. However, I'm not a big Bodylotion person, so I won't purchase one by myself.
The other thing is a Moonlight Massage by Rituals, wich I also got for nothing. Like I said, I don't like Bodylotions on my skin (I prefer a butter), so I don't want to get one with my own money.'

'Then a bunch of samples, wich I also got for Christmas from the same good friend. Can't say much about them, ecept that I liked the Love Oil Sachets.
The other thing is a package of my Cotton Rounds, wich I always got at the Action for 0,55. Nothing special about it, just cotton round to clean my face.'

'Then a Facecream sample with pomegranate, a Bonnebell Liplites Libbalm, a nailfile and a mascara. I don't know what the price from the lipbalm was, cause I bought it years ago. The file came in a pack of two, and was available at the Dutch Big Bazar for 1,49 a pack. Don't know if they are still available there.
The mascara is from Maybelinne, and it's the Stilletto one. I liked that one. Purchased that one a few years back for only 1,99 at the Action.'

'And that's it. Used a lot of samples lately. Can't promise you guys anything, but I'm trying to catch myself more on here.'

Projects ~ On my Nails : Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in #100 Bubble Plum

'Time for another On My Nails Post. This time we're talking about the Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Bubble Plum. I found this a few months ago at my local Big Bazar for 1,99. I love Textured Nailpolishes in general, and I must say, I really really like this one.'

'On the pictures I used two coats. One coat will do, but two coats makes it nicer. Especially when it's a Textured / Sand nailpolish. For a textured coat it goes on smoothly. Sometimes you drag the polish of the nail when you try to do another stroke, but this one, no problems at all.'

'I hope my Big Bazar will stock their Sally Hansen polishes soon. Cause I want a few more of these, if the isle isn't that messy.'

Reviews - Finished Products March 2015 (very belated)

'Okay... here's my very belated Finished Products of March. That month was a bit hectic for me I believe. April isn't any better, if we talk about being busy. I have a few post coming up, and then it is allready May. Unbelieveable.'

'In March I finished this shampoo by Palmolive. It's the one for greasy hair, and it worked really well. It was only 1. I also finished a Palmolive Naturals showercream in cherry blossom, wich I love! I paid 1,39 at the Action for it. The shampoo came from my local grocerystore.'

'I finished two old Bonnebell Liplites. I can't remember how much I paid for them. Those gave me a bit color on the lips. I did like the smell of those, I'm not so fond of the tints, cause it all ends up on the lip line. The the Cuticle & Nail Gel from W7. Found at the Big Bazar once for 1. Can't find it there anymore, else I repurchased it. Glad I have still one tube left, if I'm not mistaken.'

'Lastly I trashed a bunch of samples and a pack of this face clansing cloths, wich I used to clean my desk. A package was only 0,19 at my Action. I couldn't find them anymore, else I picked them again. Those are great for cleaning the make up space. For the face... not so much.'

Reviews ~ Finished Products February 2015

'For some reason, February is always the month that passed by so quikly. A normal month is mostly gone so fast. Time for a few empty products.'

'First two things: an Yves Rocher Christmas Bodylotion, wich I got in my Secret Santa. I have no idea how much this was. I wasn't a fan of the scent, but the consistency made my skin supersoft. Especially my elbows.
The other item is an Aloe Vera Hand sanitizer. It comes in a 3-pack and is 0,79 at the Action. It's so runny and hard to dry. However, it cleans my hands, so it's ok.'

'Next a lot of samples, also from the Secret Santa. First a facecream by LOreal, wich I liked. The next thing is an hair conditioner by Garnier, wich is also ok. The mini pot is an LOreal facecream too. In the back you see one of my BonneBell Liplites in something sugar. I bought that lipbalm years ago online, so I don't know how much I paid for it. Trying to use all my BonneBell lipbalms at the moment, so you will see more this year.'

Purchases ~ Bargain Alert! Revlon Colorstay Nailpolishes for €0,99 (Action)

'Since januari I spotted several times the Revlon Colorstay Nailpolishes for only 0,99 a piece. That's a steal. The Action have also the Sally Hansen polishes for the same price. Here are the colors I picked up for the pas 1,5 month.'

'First bunch: Stiletto, Jungle, Spanish Moss and Buttercup. I allready wore Spanish Moss, and I'm absolutely in love with the color. On the pics, I used one coat. Only thing is the drytime, wich isn't that quik. So far, that's the only complain.'

'Second bunch: Sheashell, Amethyst, Indigo Night and Bare Bones. I wore from these Bare Bones allready. I like it for a good nude nail. You can get away with one coat for most colors. Some needs two, like Sheashell, but still. I don't like the brighter corals so maybe this is an good alternative.'

Purchases ~ Rimmel Salon Pro Nailpolishes (Action)

'Spotted nice Nailpolish Brands at the Action. One of them are the Rimmel Salon Pro Nailpolishes with their round caps. Let's take a look.'

'These polishes are 2,39 each, a steal in comparison with Dutch drugstores. I have Lethal Green, Little Boy Blue, It's Lush and Fondant Fancy. I've seen a few more colors, but mostly they have only greens in my Action.'

'A few quik swatches. Used one coat. I think you're good to go with one mostly, but two is better for most of these. And I did these on white nails, so go figure. The Little Boy Blue I bought because it reminded me of Sally Hansens Pacific Blue. It's close, but not a dupe. Pacific Blue is more dusty, and the Rimmel one is more blue. Maybe I do a little comparison in the near future on that.'

Reviews ~ Finished Products Janyary 2015

'Here are my Finished Products for the first 2015- month. I have not much for this post, but at least I have something finished.'

'First item, this Cure Solutions facecream from Yves Rocher. I got this for free years ago, and as you can tell, I didn't finish it properly. That's because the consistency drove me nuts. It was so slippery and made my face shiny. Normally I don't purchase this, and it took me a while to get through. The winter is the only time I can use this, without it makes me too shiny. Never want to purchase this at myself. The pot isn't that practical too. You need to put your fingers under the rim, and then still you can't get it out that good.'

'Next a bunch og lippies and two files. De green lipbalm was from the Action and comes in a pack of two. It's 0,69 a pack wich is very cheap. It didn't dried out my lips like a lot cheap balms do, so for the price it's an good alternative. The other two are Bonnebell Liplites, wich I got years ago. They where still good, but I had to finish it quikly. Like these, but never see me repurchase them. The files came in a 0,49 pack of five at the Action, and are the worst files I ever used.'

'Lastly a bunch of samples wich I got at the Secret Santa this year. I can't get too much in depth with them, but most things I really enjoyed, like the Loreal Hair Oil and a few Yves Rocher creams.
Also a cotton rounds package from the Action for 0,50, my standard cotton I use for Nailpolish removing and make up.'

'That's it!'

Projects ~ On my nails : All Splattered Up with Sally Hansen in Strobe Flash/ Mavala in New York

'Time to show you some fun on my nails again this weekend. This time I'd painted them with a Mavala Nailpolish wich I have for ages. The color is New York, and it's a deep dark grey. I went over it with a splatter polish by Sally Hansen from their Xtreme Wear line, color is Strobe Flash. I really rocking this nails, but I have to mention that this Sally Hansen Polish is so thick... by two coats you need to wait for a long time before it's nice and dry, and I can tell you, that you can't get away with one of the splatter coat. But the effect is very cool.'

'I used two coats of New York and Two thin coats of Strobe Flash.'
