Yay, my last 2 nail polish packages have arrived! And, yeah, I couldn’t handle myself and bought two more of the new Essence polishes. Shame on me… 😉

Here are the pictures:

Essence Color & Go “Boho Chic” >>> peach with gold shimmer and flakies

Essence Color & Go “Ballerina’s Charm” >>> pastel lilac with subtle silver shimmer

1,55 € each in drugstores

Barry M Chameleon Color Changing polishes in “Chameleon Pink” & “Chameleon Blue”

3,99 GBP each on

China Glaze “Pool Party” >>> creme neon pink

China Glaze “Flirty Tankini” >>> shimmer pinky-orange neon

3,99 $ each from

OPI “Coney Island Cotton Candy” >>> milky pastel peach >>> 5,99 $

China Glaze “Elephant Walk” >>> greenish-grey shimmer >>> 3,99 $


Orly “Dayglow” >>> white with blue sheen >>> 5,95 $

Orly “Beach Cruiser” >>> cool toned neon pink

Orly “Glowstick” >>> pure neon yellow

both 6,95 $, all from

I tried to make a picture of the blue sheen from the Orly “Dayglow” but I had to darken it a lot so you can see:

There you go! 🙂

By the way, pictures doesn’t do the neon ones justice. They look so much brighter in real life than on photos or in videos. I saw so many swatches of these but was actually pretty much shocked when I hold them in my hands after unpacking. 🙂

So much for this Haul…

Nail polish collection overview April 2012:

I think the count was about 300 bottles then. But I already bought some more. 😉

Next month I wanna buy one of those wall racks, to organize them a little better. I might do a collection overview again if I have found a better storage solution.

Today, I wanted to just something fun. This is a Tag goin’ around on youtube called “Nail Polish Obsession”, and since I am obviously nail polish addicted I decided to participate in that one. Since I don’t do videos on youtube, I will do it blogger-style. 🙂

Let’s get started!

1. What is your favorite nail polish company?

I can’t decide on one single company, so I show you my 3 favorites:

2. Glitter or no Glitter?

Let the pictures speak:

(and that’s not even all…)

3.  OPI, China Glaze or Essie?

If I have to decide between them, I would say Essie. But OPI is pretty close.

4. When do you change your nail polish?

Usually in the evening while watching TV or videos on youtube.

5. What’s your favorite color on your nails?

That depends on my mood. Recently I am more into blues. I am buying blue nail polish like crazy. Before that it was green. But sometimes I just like a classic red or pink nail.

6.  Darks or Brights?

Usually Darks. I love those vampy colors all around the year. I like Brights, but only in “real” summer, with sun, hot temperatures, etc.

7. What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?

Orly Au Champagne with Essie Set in Stones on the ring finger

8. Matte Nails – In or Out?

Out! Never liked them, just not for me.

9. French Manicure?

Love it. Looks really chic and classic, but just when you have longer nails. I don’t like it, when you have supershort nails and just put a white tip on. That doesn’t look good to me.

10.  Favorite Winter color?

I don’t have one specific winter color. I like everything muted and kinda dark, like dark plum colors, greys and vampy reds. And I also like jeweltoned or glitter colors. Here are some examples:

OPI – Lincoln Park after Dark, Zoya – Edyta, Essie – Limited Addiction, OPI – Diva of Geneva
