not from this world – my favorite japanese polishes

Hello everyone,

most of you might not know, but I used to live in Japan for about a year. I was living in Tokyo, near Shinjuku.
For make-up or nail polish addicts / nail designs Japan is a really great place to live.

Shiseido is one of the companies that makes really great polishes.

Since you know that I love glitter, you will not be surprised, that two of my top three polishes are glitter polishes and the third is a shimmer glittery looking-kinda chrome polish.

I hope you can see, this is a pretty blue color. It’s also has purple and light blue/turquoise shimmer.
I love it, because depending on the light, it looks either very dark blue, purple or a mix of all.

It’s time to GLITTER!



Look at these two pretty glitter polishes. one blue, the other red-ish.
I can honestly say that these are some of my favorite glitter polishes. The quality is really great. I used a light grey-lavender (Catrice LE Celtica C04 LOVEnder) base color to show them off properly, but with only two coats of the Shiseido polish the finish will be good and opaque.



Do you see that mix of silver and different blue or red shades?
I totally fell in love when I saw them for the first time and I am pretty sad that they don’t sell them anymore.

How do you like these?
Let me know.
