So we’ve seen Dior and Chanel’s Spring 2012 nail polishes but what do you think of Essie vs OPI?
I think there’s more variety to OPI’s Holland Collection, but then again I always pick OPI ahead of Essie. Don’t get me wrong, I have plenty of Essie polishes but I think OPI does better colours that last longer.
On my way to Tenerife I stopped by the duty-free shop and noticed Dior’s Spring 2012 nail polishes are out. I adore both colours and must admit that this is a first for me: first time that I’ve chosen Dior over Chanel. Which is your favourite?
I have been raving about FNUG here on my blog. You can read my review on the nail polish brand HERE. The fantastic rich shades from the Danish brand not only look amazing on, but also nourish your nails. I can say this with certainty because I’ve tested it, loved it and use it all the time.

I know it’s been awfully quiet here on the blog but I do have a good excuse. I’m working on a new layout and that’s all I can think about now days. I just want to get it done and over with so I can start fresh :)
Here’s my latest obsession: Chanel’s Illusion d’ombre eyeshadows. I love their beautiful shimmer and gel-like texture. I got all the shades now but my favourite one is the 83 Illusoire which is a purple metallic colour. Also I really recommend the Sublime De Chanel Mascara. It has such an amazing brush- my lashes have never looked longer or more separated.
I’ve discovered yet another favourite OPI colour. This one is called It’s Totally Fort Worth It and part of the Texas collection. It’s a shimmery lavender grey and it’s very sheer. This is a nice alternative to pale pink if you want a subtle look.
I’m loving this shade from OPI’s Texas collection. It has a sorbet like finish to it which means you can achieve a translucent look if you apply 1-2 coats, and 3 coats for a more opaque look. It’s easier to apply than other nail polishes which I can only imagine is because of its jelly like consistency and it has a really nice shine to it. This shade is lovely coral, perfect for the summer.
While I’m enjoying every minute of the summer, news like this make me not mind the autumn ahead. Chanel has revealed it new Autumn 2011 Illusions d’Ombres makeup collection inspired by precious metals and jewels. It includes these three amazing nail polish shades. What do you think? I’m personally lusting over Graphite which is listed as a limited edition colour. I better get myself to the Chanel counter tomorrow before it’s too late.

How are you spending your Friday? It’s finally sunny here in London and I’m off work so I started the day by getting a haircut. My hair had grown really long but it was looking dull and I had some split ends so I asked my Johnny (that’s what I call my hair dresser- I wouldn’t change him for anyone else) take off around 5cm and give me more layers esp in the front and he did a fab job. Just in time for the Aussie bloggers event tomorrow. I am really looking forward to it.
After the haircut I went for manicure and pedicure. Do you like this shade? it’s my favourite, it’s something between red and orange and so perfect for the summer. It’s by OPI but I forgot to ask for the name. On my way home I passed Comptoir des Cotonniers and of course I had to go in, knowing I wouldn’t come out empty-handed. I found the most stunning dress just perfect for tomorrows theme which is: summer dresses, florals and pastels.
My lovelies, what a gorgeous Monday. The sun is shining here in London and I’m off work until tomorrow. Started my day by getting manicure and pedicure in Opi Big Apple Red.
I have the biggest nail polish collection, mainly thanks to my bf. You know when you were little your parents would get you a lollipop when you were in a mood, well the princess has grown up and now she is cheered up by colourful nail varnishes. This time he got me Dior’s Pink Boa. It’s very subtle and pretty- just what I like for spring.
