sorry for keeping things I bought apart from my HAULy friday posts, but lately I buy so many new polishes that posting the news once once a week is just not enough^^ Companies are throwing LE’s on the market like there is no tomorrow. It makes me crazy haha Not only the DM drugstore brands like Essence, Catrice and p2 – also Rossmann brand Rival de Loop and Rival de Loop young are releasing LE’s all the time. Sometimes I feel it is a little bit too much, but oh well we keep buying stuff anyway. haha
Today I want to show you a nail polish collection from Rival de Loop which I bought about 2 weeks ago I think. I actually found this by accident. But when I saw it I had to buy all of the effect polishes! With these they also released 5 base colors, but since I have polishes that are very similar, I didn’t feel the need to buy these here.
For all of you are interested, these polishes are vegan.
The LE contains 10 polishes total. 5 base colors and 5 top coats. They are all pairs, contain 10 ml of product and cost 2,49 euro each.
I paired them with the Rival de Loop polishes as followed.
Ciaté PP118 – candy floss paired with Rival de Loop „Sorbet Nail Collection“ 01 soft yellow
Ciaté PP082 – cream soda paired with Rival de Loop „Sorbet Nail Collection“ 09 birdy silver
Ciaté PP080 – sugar plum paired with Rival de Loop „Sorbet Nail Collection“ 07 cool mint
Ciaté PP104 – pepperminty paired with Rival de Loop „Sorbet Nail Collection“ 03 smooth apricot
Ciaté PP151- Loop de Loop paired with Rival de Loop „Sorbet Nail Collection“ 05 blue sky
The blue effect polish on the yellow thumb sadly does not show up so well in the pictures, but it was a really nice combination.
I am kind torn which of these effect polishes is my favorite. I really love the one on my pinky finger, the blue one on my thumb and the fuzzy one on my ring finger, because the color combination of the fuzzy particles is so unique.
please excuse my late post, but I had to go to the tax (customs) office to pick up a long awaited package from my blogger-bestie Casey.
Please check out her Blog www.letmetrythisforyou.wordpress.com.
Since she knew I wanted all the other Fuzzy Coat’s from Sally Hansen she went on a nail polish hunt for me and sent them over.
I am so happy that my Fuzzy Coat family is finally complete. If you don’t know, during the one week in New York in January I bought Fuzzy Coat 500 – Fuzz-Sea. I wanted the other 7 so badly, because I really LOVE Sally Hansen polishes.
Enough talking, let’s go~~

Of course I will post many many nail art designs with these babies.
Thank you again Casey, you made me a really happy girl.
I know it has been a while since my last [tips & tricks] post, but today I wanted to tell you what I do (not always, but from time to time) to keep my hands nice and soft.
Usually I do this on a Saturday or Sunday when my BF and I are having a movie night. I do this maybe once a month or so.
Starting off with washing my hands of course, rings and all other jewelry off and scrubbing my wet hands with one of my favorite p2 peelings. I really love the green one, but sadly they don’t sell it anymore so I had to get the new one as well.
After this is done I usually creme my nails with the nail wax from p2 and put the cuticle care on my cuticles as well as some nail food pomelo on my nails as well.
After that I take my The Body Shop – Mango Body Creme to thickly creme my hands. Why use that? Simply because my best friend gave it to me for my birthday and since I don’t use Body Creme why let it go to waste? It is also a great moisturizing hand mask.
I always put some plastic gloves on top (the ones you use to dye your hair) before I slide my hands into a pair of pink cotton gloves :P
I leave it like that for 2 hours or sometimes even while I am sleeping.
After removing the “mask” you are left with super soft hands that are well moisturized.
If you would like you could also cut off any access cuticle skin. I use my Wilkinson cutter for that.
and after that why not put on some more creme? :D
I hope that helped. I know it is a lot, but sometimes you gotta pamper you hands too.
