HAULy friday – one

Hey everyone,

even though we are still in the middle of Ciaté Month, I want to introduce you to a new category on my blog.

HAULy friday!


Each friday I will show you some things that I have bought recently.
I will show them to you and later on, let you know what I think of them.

Today after work I went to two one euro shops near my apartment. Pfennigland was one of them. I went there to check if they had any cute nail stickers or cheap eye shadows that I could use to create my own nail polish.
Instead I saw that they are also selling nail stamping set’s!!!
I was so happy, because I was wanting a stamping set for a long time-I have never tried that technique.
So I found two that I liked best and also two cute set’s of nail stickers.

The nail stamping set’s

I now it is difficult to see, but I choose two set’s that are pretty similar. They show several floral motives and the one plate also contains some kind of full finger design.

I am really excited to try these!


Nail Stickers

Look at these super adorable nail stickers! I choose the cute tiger-ish kittens and cute sheeps, can’t wait to put these on my nails as well.


After Pfennigland I went to DM to see if they already have the new stamping set in store, but they didn’t.
I was thinking about buying the Essence Love Letter LE stamping set for a few weeks now but I was never fully satisfied about the motive…..I don’t know what got me today, maybe because it’s valentines day, but I decided to buy the set for future love themed nail designs^^

AND, since the lovely Bettina from LacquerVictim was speaking so highly of the dark grey/blue-ish stamping polish (05 inkheart), I bought two of those as well.
Bettina, I trust in your opinion and hope this polish won’t disappoint me haha


After DM I went to another one euro shop which is called Euroshop Berlin.
I wanted to see if they had any cute decoration that I could also use for future nail designs and I found these tiny red hearts and silver glitter. A girl can NEVER have enough glitter^^
And I found two sparkly polishes as well. How do you properly call these? They are not sequins, but bar glitter^^
If you have seen the Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat or Essence’s dupe (19 bird of paradise and 20 The Bees and the Birds), you know what I am talking about. The feather look.



I bought a plain silver holographic color and a dark pink color. Sadly those polishes do not have numbers or names, so there is no other informationc I can give you to identify them.


I already swatched them on a piece of paper and so far the consistency looks pretty great. The application seems easy and the polish is not gluey. YAY! for that

The prices:


Cosmetica Fanatica Stamping Set 1,99 € each
Cosmetica Fanatica Nail Stickers 1,29 € each


Essence Love Letter LE Stampy polish 05 inkheart 1,75 € each
Essence Love Letter LE Stampy Set 2,95 €

Euroshop Berlin

Sabrina Cosmetics fuzzy coat 1 € each
Silver glitter 1 €
decorations hearts 14 grams 1 €

total 17,01 €

What do you think?
Do you think products always have to be expensive or would you also buy at the euro shop or dollar shop?



[Review] Ciaté’s Mini Mani Month 2013 (US) – PP080 sugar plum

Hello everyone,

I hope you are spending the day with your loved one.

Today we are moving on to the next color range – lilac.

Today’s color is PP080 sugar plum

This is a very cute pastel lilac. I can see it on young girls as well as women. It is a nice tone to combine with top coats or pearls. In general a very fun color, but not to blatant.

This polish is pretty transparent so you would need 3 coats to get an opaque finish.
The small, short brush makes the application nice and easy. The polish itself is liquid.
Please make sure to let it properly dry between each coat and as well before you apply a top coat.

Later on I will show you some nice options to combine it with different toppers or caviar pearls. I can also imagine that this is a great tone to use for gradient nails.

My opinion: 5/5

The Manicure


one coat


second coat


final result with three coats


Isn’t this a lovely lilac shade?

I think this is a great color if you have a darker skin tone. I am pretty pale so I think it does not look as great on me as it could.

Also I am very excited to try the pastel penguin nail design which I saw on cutepolish (youtube)

I think sugar plum, as well as hoopla, pepperminty and loop de loop are perfect for this design.

Do you like sugar plum? Any ideas for nail designs with this polish?
I would love to read your opinion.
