HAULy friday – three

Hello everyone,

today is friday and you know what that means!

Today is HAULy friday!


This week I a showing you the stuff I bough from my local DM drugstore.

As you might know, Catrice recently released a new Limited Edition that is fully based on nail polishes.

The Catrice Website tells us the following:

Limited Edition “Luxury Lacquers” by CATRICE

Show Effects. Looks must be multi-facetted, the feel unusual. The new fabrics in the designer collections are there to be discovered with all your senses. Three-dimensional structures, elaborate applications as well as multi-dimensional colours with holographic or metallic effects turn the designs into luxury items. More is more. That’s why the Limited Edition “Luxury Lacquers” by CATRICE“, which will be available in stores in March 2014, offers a total of 24 nail polish colours guaranteed to be eye-catching. You have a choice of four different effects: Sand’sation, Chameleon, Million Brilliance and Holomania. All polishes shine in the trendiest colours of the season and offer ultimate coverage as well as a long-lasting texture. Limited Edition, unlimited Effects – by CATRICE.

The collection contains the following:


Special Sparkle. Multi-dimensional glitter and pearls sparkle in all facets and give your nails a luxurious coat. The result is unique and brillliant – absolute must-haves and suitable for all trendy looks.


3Deluxe. The Sand’sation nail polishes offer a sandy finish with high coverage and a sensational colour brilliance. The fine crystals cover your nails like diamond dust to give them an unmistakable structure.


Pretty Prism. Holographic effects give your nails a unique look – exclusive and fascinating at the same time. The metallic colours with an ultimate prism effect come in cool silver and blue shades as well as a fashionable purple. Ultimate coverage and ultimate durability are guaranteed. On top of that, the professional brush offers a particularly easy application.


Colour Change. Intensive, powerful colour meets upon iridescent duo-chrome here. The unique chameleon effect makes a real statement. The shine is full of effects, the colour offers great coverage and the texture is especially long-lasting.

I love the idea of a full nail polish LE. Great job Catrice!

My personal favorite are the Holographic polishes.
I bought three of them, but only because my DM did not have all four of them.
I came back 3 times this week to check, but still nothing. :(
Also went to my second DM near by, but also nothing.

Catrice, please send me C02 ApHolo 7 :D

Anyway, here are my pictures of the polishes.

I simply love those polishes. I swatched them all and looks absolutely stunning!
If you follow my Facebook Page you probably already saw my mid week manicure with Holo in One.
The coverage is unbelievable. Already after one coat the polish was nice and opaque!
I added a second coat, just to make sure. The dry time was also very good.

I will do a separate post on these polishes with different nail designs, so please wait for that.
But since the LE is out now or at latest in March, I wanted to hurry and recommend you to BUY ALL OF THEM!
i paid 3,45 euro each and it was totally worth the money.

Catrice, if you read this, please please PLEASE take these holographic polishes into your standard range!

The next polish is also from Catrice. It is the effect topper 50 glitterazzi.

I got curious about this polish when I saw it on LacquerVictim’s – January HAUL.
So far I don’t own an effect coat like this. I will let you know what I think of it. The reviews I have read recently were not that good, but who knows I might love it^^



P2 also has a new Limited Edition, called Square Affair,which is sold in all DM stores throughout Germany (and maybe also Austria and Switzerland).
I was not a big fan of the polishes so the only thing I bought was the glitter set.
I thought these were nice to create cute nail art designs. When I checked the recite for the price I almost fell from my chair. I though it was 3 euro something, turns out I actually paid 4,65 euro. WOW!
Well its too late now anyway haha

Recently I am not a big fan of the P2 LE’s. The Beauty Rebel, as well as Square Affair and the up coming Sea la Vie LE are really not my cup of tea. I don’t like the colors of the polishes, they are very boring to me.
I also saw pictures of the upcoming summer LE with lots of bronze colors…..I am so disappointed.
I totally freaking LOVED the polishes from last years Summer Attack LE, even bought bottles and bottles on stock for myself…..but the current releases….not for me.

What do you think? Any recommendations for me? What should I buy? What should I try?

Let me know :)



This is it? – End of the Ciaté Month

Hello everyone,

if you are reading this post, that means it is Friday the 28th of February already.
That means my Ciaté Month is over. :(
But don’t worry, I will continue to post everyday and there sure as hell will be more posts about Ciaté polishes, because trying all the mini polishes made me really happy. The quality is so good that I already bought two more kits and I will buy more kits and polishes as well.
This was so much fun!

Good thing about the review posts being over, is that I can start to create nail designs with my Ciaté polishes now and of course show them to you :D

Besides that I will create tutorials and continue to show you all the other polishes from my collection.
I honestly did not count my polishes yet, so I don’t know how many review posts you can expect, but there will be a lot.
Right now I am not quite sure if I will post by brand, color range or simply mix it all up.

What do you think, how would you like to see my collection?
Should I mix polish reviews with nail designs, HAUL’s and tutorials?
Please let me know in the comments, I would love to hear your input.

If you have any ideas or wish to see certain things, please let me know. I would like to involve you in the process of building this blog.

I am sorry that this last post will be text only, but I would also like to know how you liked my  Ciaté month.
Was it fun? Was it boring? Did reviewing each polish help you?
Any other useful information you would like to get while I review?

For now, all I can say is that I love blogging so far. It is a lot of fun and I like to meet all these new interesting people, so please don’t be shy and leave a comment even if it is just to say “hi!” or simply like a post.
I like checking your blogs as well and if you don’t make yourself visible, I can’t do that :)

Later on I will post another of my HAULy friday posts, showing you what I bought this week.
So please check in again later.

Take care,



P.S.: did any of you see the change on my sidebar? Do you like it?

Tips & Tricks – 1 – glitter polish removal

Hello everyone,

since we are through all the mini glitter polishes from Ciaté’s Tree Trinket gift set, I thought it is time for another new category on my blog – Tips & Tricks.


In this category I want to try giving advice or tips and tricks regarding working with nail polish.
I also want to talk about the miths like what helps to dry polish faster or is it good to use drops of nail polish remover to loosen up dry polishes?

My first post is about the removal of glitter polishes. We all know having a glittery manicure is much fun, but removing the polish is such a pain. Simply rubbing nail polish soaked cotton pads back and forth over the glitter manicure takes way too long and can be pretty frustrading.
Some of you might already know the solution to this problem, but I will show you anyway.
There is a simple trick to help you remove glitter polishes.

What you need?

– 5 cotton pads cut in half
– nail polish remover
– aluminium foil  (10 stripes)
– 10 – 15 minutes of time


Cut the cotton pads (I use the circle ones from my local drugstore) in half so they have a half moon shape.
Also cut the aluminium foil in stripes. You will need 10 in total, one for each of your filangies (fingers).


Look at this nasty chipped nail polish. Time to get rid of it.
Soak one half moon shaped cotton pad with nail polish remover and place it on top an around your fingertip. I usually place the round part on my cuticle.


Take one stripe of the aluminium foil……


…..wrap it……


…..wrap it around your finger. Make sure to kee the cotton pad in place.



Continue on all your other fingers until you look similar to Edward scissor hand. :)
This gets more tricky with every covered finger.


Now watch TV, read a book or simply relax for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove all the foil/cotton pairs by slighty moving it from from left to right.

You will be left with an almost fully cleaned nail. Soak a normal cotton pad and clean over all the nails again.

You are left with clean nails :)
(don’t mind my discolored nails please)

Did you already know this trick? Did it help you?
