Comparison: Essence Waking Up In Vegas, Inglot 205, Gosh Rainbow

I have 2 flakies in my collection that I wanted to compare to Essence Waking Up in Vegas - Inglot 205 and Gosh Rainbow. First I applied two coats of Essence Berlin Story nail polish, to get the deepest black color and then added one thick coat of flakie polish. As...

Swatches: MeMeMe – Proud and Distinctive

I first came across the MeMeMe brand when I was in the UK and saw it in a drugstore. I've never heard of it before. The display was nice, the prices something in between. Not cheap but not very expensive either. I only bought two nail polishes. First one is...

Swatch and comparison: Catrice – I’m A Star vs. Welcome To The Jungle

When I first saw Catrice's new shade I'm A Star it immediately reminded me of another polish by Catrice that was part of a LE called Papagena. Gejba reviewed and swatched all the polishes from that collection HERE. And I'm A Star reminded me of a polish called Welcome...

Catrice Run Forest Run – old vs. new

Comparison: Catrice – From Dusk To Dawn (new version) vs. Barry M – Dusky Mauve

I don't know why companies do that. I mean, I can imagine why this happens, but I have no idea why don't they just give the polish a new name, when the new version is nothing like the old one. But that's how it is. We all know that...

Comparison: Illamasqua Sangers vs. Revlon Matte Really Red

I borrowed few of Maestra's beauty products to serve as "models" for Gallery images. Among them was Illamasqua Sangers lipstick. As I just recently bought Revlon Matte Really Red I guess comparison was almost unavoidable ... and my Facebook friends said I should write about it....

Review and swatches: Manhattan & Buffalo nail polishes

Manhattan is bombarding is with new limited editions ... and I love it. :D I bought 3 out of 6 polishes from Manhattan & Buffalo or shortened M&Buffalo limited edition. I guess I don't have to tell you why I bought Manhattan 78J shade - cyan blue polishes are one...
