Summer is back in town!

I've been wanting to make a look using Zelda and Majora's Mask for ages, and now that summer finally came through it seemed like the perfect time for some color! It's blazing hot though, so I opted for a very light, almost translucent base using only a concealer where needed and some dusting with mineral foundation.

Having finally grown my nails a bit longer, I was itching to do a fun manicure. They just look so much better if you have a nice surface to work on. Luna over at is hosting a fun frog-themed makeup challenge, so I got inspired by the beautiful poison dart frogs and gave it my best shot.

Essentiel flakie nailpolish

If you have never heard of Belgian fashion label Essentiel, make sure to take a look at their collection. They are known for using bright colors and contrasting textures, and their style is always very femine and out there.

I was really excited to see that they have launched a line of nailpolish too, so I picked one up to try!

Catrice Genius in a bottle nailpolish

I have another pretty polish to show you today!

You can find a lot of blogposts on this nailpolish, comparing it to Chanel's Peridot. Genius in a bottle is more gold toned because the green duochrome is not as pronounced as it is in Peridot, but it's a real gem nevertheless.

Prepare for cheesiness!

I have gained some new followers lately and have reached 26 followers on GFC just recently :) Thanks to all of you! This is nothing compared to many blogs out there, but for me and my little blog it means a lot. It feels silly just responding with 'thank you!' everytime someone comments, but know that it makes me really happy to know that someone took the time to read my posts. A special thanks goes out to the people that tagged me or linked to me recently!

To express my appreciation to you guys I am planning to do a small give away soon. It will be open internationally and the prize will contain some of my recent favorites. So far it contains the products in the picture above, but I will add some extra's. There are some seperate posts coming up with a short review with swatches of the products.

I am still figuring out what's the best way to do this giveaway thing to keep it fair and fun to everyone. I will probably use rafflecopter and being a follower on GFC will be obligatory, but I am not sure wether to add options like following on bloglovin' because I don't want to be too demanding either.

Any thought on this? All suggestions are welcome!

The body shop - mini haul

I bought some goodies from The Body Shop today, a few old favorites and some new things to try. Read on to see what I took home with me!

Gosh Holographic, oh how I love you!

This holographic nailpolish by Gosh is said to be sold out.. Perhaps you might still run into it, because I had been walking past it for years thinking it was just a silver nailpolish, until I saw it swatched somewhere! I was just in time to buy the last bottle before they stopped restocking on it. It is a plain silver based holo so luckily you can find a lot of dupes.

For fellow Belgian nailpolish lovers: try Instant Spa! I have seen some pretty holographic polishes from the designer series sold there.

I will be back as soon as possible with other stuff than nailpolish, but I need to reinstall my image editing program first, so I am digging in my archive at the moment :)

Thanks for reading!
