Dance Legend The Knight - swatches and review

Time for a real show stopper! This beauty was so hard to get! It disappeared from the shop shelves the minute it was launched - EVERY time!! In the end I finally managed to get hold of a mini bottle. Yay!! :D

And it was worth waiting for I can tell you!! Wow!! What a stunning multichrome polish!! Hence all the pictures today ;)

This is two coats and the color shifts are magic and easy to spot! Totally unique in my collection!!


GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Multichrome.

Number of coats: Two, but it's a possible one coater on short nails.

Formula: Ok formula. A bit runny. Apply with easy hands to avoid bald spots and brushstrokes.

Brush: Thin straight cut brush.

Top Coat: Yes. 

Grade: 5+++++++++++/5

I don't care that this polish hasn't got the best of formulas, just look at it! It's amazing!!

How do you like The Knight?

Butterflies in Nets Manicure

It's Green Wednesday and I'm joining with a green based nail art today!

The base is the stunning Mermaid Cave from By K. I keep coming back to this polish again and again, I can't get enough of it! :D

Then I've done a double stamping. First with Mentality Rigoberta and MoYou London plate Pro Collection XL-01 (the net) and then with Essie Blue Rhapsody and MoYou London Princess Collection-14 (the butterflies).

I was very pleased with the result of the manicure but I'm not that sure if I'm pleased with how I named it ;)

Rimmel London Oh, Mr Darcy! - swatches and review

This is a polish I actually bought mostly for its name. I love Jane Austen and I love "Pride and Prejudice". Mr Darcy is one of the characters in that book. Hand on the heart now, who hasn't been a little bit in love with Colin Firth playing Mr Darcy in one of the tv series versions (BBC 1995)…? ;)

The color is a lovely nude color though. Unfortunately its no longer with me since it was a gift to my great friend Goldie who definitely has had a crush on a certain Mr Darcy ;)

This is three easy coats with a top coat.


GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Cream.

Number of coats: Three.

Formula: Good. A tiny bit thin but not runny.

Brush: Wide rounded brush.

Top Coat: Yes. 

Grade: 3+/5

I'm not quite sure why Rimmel chose such a dull color for Mr Darcy though… Ok, he's a bit boring and stiff in the beginning but in the end quite passionate actually ;) I would have chosen a royal blue color for a polish with this name. Or a dark navy blue ;)

How do you like Oh, Mr Darcy!?

Stars on Holo Skies Manicure

For today's Nail Art Sunday I've got pretty silver stars on dark blue holo skies for you :)

The base is the magically beautiful Dream from Zoya and the stars are made with Essie No Place Like Chrome and MoYou London plate Princess Collection-14. For extra sparkle I added one coat of INM Northern Lights Hologram Top Coat "Silver".

I'm very happy with the result! If you want to see Zoya Dream on its own click here.

Summary of By K Summer Collection 2014

In case I've got a complete polish collection I usually do a summary of it - and now it's time to sum up the wonderful summer collection from By K! I've listed the nine polishes in the order how I like them. The first one is my favorite and so on.

I've got many questions on where to get hold of these amazing polishes and if you live in Denmark you can order them from By K at: www.by-k.dk/shop

If you live outside Denmark you can get them at: skinstyle.dk/by-k-neglelak-177 They ship all over Europe.

If you live outside Europe you can contact By K directly to see if they can help you. Go to: www.by-k.dk/en-shop

Ok, time for the list! And remember they are all certified cruelty free, vegan and not less than 5-free! Great for you and for the animals :)
