Picture polish by Lacquertude Forget me not


Very fitting name of this nail polish considering my passion for blogging is slowly dying :) 
Picture polish Forget me not was created in a collaboration with Kate from Lacquertude. It's such an amazing shade, bright blue with scattered holo. The formula was great, two thicker coats gave me a full coverage. Even though the formula has glitter particles the surface dries smooth. I can't stop admiring it <3 This was my first experience with Picture polish and I'm excited to try more.

Review: Spring time mani


Yes love Neon glitter polishes used to be all the rage and naturally I bought a bunch of them :) I must admit I'm not really a fan of pastel shades but these just caught my attention. Yes love G11-2 has a peachy sheer base with colorful glitters and hexagons. The reason why I never wore it is because believe it or not, I didn't have a peachy base for it. Recently Avon surprised me with Avon nailwear pro + in Sheer citrus, which made me think of Yes love polish again. I decided to combine them both for a cheery spring mani. Both polishes are quite sheer so I had to put two coats of each. Surprisingly no bubbling *big thumbs up*

Essence Lights of Orient TE: review and swatches


Some Essence collections leave me cold but this one made me feel like I'm under the hot oriental sun :) It has been a while since Essence released such an eye catching and beautiful collection. From the packaging design to color scheme there's not a thing I don't like. Since I'm trying to minimize my shopping I decided not to buy the entire collection and narrowed my wishes down to three products.

Rudolph's favorite Glitter queen


Lately all my nail blog posts feature red :) Can't help myself, it's such a versatile color. For this mani I decided to combine two polishes I received in advent calendars
Essence Rudolph's favorite is a nice medium red creme with an excellent formula. It glades on your nails in two easy coats. The shade is not very original so finding a dupe shouldn't be too hard. Since I need manis to stay on my nails as long as possible I often put some kind of a glitter topper over it. This time I went for Alessandro Glitter queen. The glitters compliment the red very well and give it an extra kick. Thick coat of top coat and you're good to go :)

March favourites


Finally, monthly favourites on time :) I don't have a lot of new favourite products this month so I'll keep it short and sweet.

Hurraw! Black cherry tinted lip balm
I'm obsessed with Hurraw! lip balm. They're very oily in consistency but don't sit on your lips for hours. They make my lip super soft and I always use at least one. This month I've been reaching for Black cherry. It smells amazing and also leaves slight reddish tint on my lips.

Happy Jackson High five! shea butter hand cream 
I admit I bought it for the packaging :) But it turned out to be a great hand cream. It smells amazing, like Yankee candles Soft blanket <3 Shea butter is not the main ingredient (8th place on INCI list) so the scent sadly probably comes from some fragrance. The cream sink into skin quickly and is great for date time use.

Avon Mesmerize
This was actually a gift from the very nice Mikela, author of Loving from Berlin. This perfume has notes of white peach, pink peony and sandalwoodWhat I can say is that it smells good :) Very oriental and sweet so it was perfect for the past colder weather.

Weleda nail oil pen
I got this little gem in a giveaway hosted by the gorgeous Sara from Passing fancy. Oil smell amazing, fresh yet fruity and the pen distributes just the right amount of oil. I use this pen on the go if my cuticles start to look sad and before taking photos.

Crane sport "smart" watch/bracelet
Had to include this non beauty fave. I'm not really a fan of watches but I do like anything that motivates me to move my ass. Recently I've been using this Crane bracelet that works as a watch, but also counts your steps, tracks you sleep, activity and more. It connects to an app on your phone and it allows you to track your daily activities. I'm totally hooked and now I compete with myself to reach my goals each day :)

Thanks for stopping by**
