Essence Crystalliced

Hello you all!

Last week Essence released their limited edition "Cristalliced".
I got my hands on 3 of the polishes. The first time i went, they didn't have it in the store yet, the second time, of course, not all was available anymore! So i got 3 out of the 4 polishes they sold. I think there may be a 5th according to one of the pictures i've posted. Anyway, let's take a look at them.

The first one is a purple-isch one. I didn't like the brushes this time, i don't know why. This one is called "It's a snow-woman's world". I applied 2 coats and no topcoat.

The second one is a blue one. I applied 3 coats, no topcoat, and i think it actually needs 4. It's called "Ice eyes baby". I don't know what went on with this polish, but it came out all bumpy and stuff....

The last one, this one is my fave of all three. It's a pink colour. It's called "Ice christals on my window". I applied 3 coats and finished with seche vite topcoat.

In the picture below you can see which colors seem to be out, but my store had only 4 colors. The 3 colors i swatched are the numbers 1, 2 and 4.

To give my mani something extra i applied some waterdecals. Those are available at Click HERE to go directly to the waterdecals.

Thanks for watching ;-)

Waterdecals were send to me for review purposes.

Swatch: Mavala Berlin 12

My 3rd swatch from Mavala. I really like this nailpolish. It dries quite quickly and the brush is good to work with. Although i think the bottles are pretty small, it 5ml (17 fl.oz.) This swatch takes 2 coats and it's without topcoat.
This time it's a beautiful grey color. It's not a dark grey, but it isn't a light's exactly in between. Well...just judge for yourself what you think of it....

Lush Lemony Flutter

I recently read a lot of posts about Lush Lemony Flutter. The miracle for your cuticles. My cuticles aren't that bad at all, but i like to pamper them anyway. I also read it's good to use for dry spots, like your elbows or feet. So i decided i was going to order it online. Darn....sold out! Which i could have think of, because many people use it this time of year. Then, let check out where they have any stores. Oh my gosh, only 8 stores in my country....what the....i can't believe it, one is in my town! Wooohoooo! My neighbour girl was going there that afternoon, what a coincidence! So, now i'm the proud owner of a can of Lemony Flutter. Of course i couldn't wait to use it. It's awesome, really! The smell....hmmm....i don't know. At first you smell a great lemon sence, but it ends with a sort of creamy sence...i don't know how to explain. It's not a real bad smell, but also not one of my favorite... It leaves a thin layer of oil. You have to like that and i DO! For those who don't i recommend using it before going to bed at night. It's an all natural product. I took some pictures, also of the ingredients so you can see what they used to create this product.

As soon as it reached my hands i openend it and tried something.

In this last picture you can see which ingredients they have used and who made it LOL I thought that was so funny. Imagine your "cartoon" sticker on this can, hehehe.

I will keep you all updated about this. I received this yesterday, so when i'm using this for a week i will tell you if anythings changed my cuticles. I may use my hubby as a experimental subject, because he does have very dry cuticles. I will make a before and after picture (if i can convince him to co-operate LOL)

Thank you for taking the time to read this!
