I would recommend this for any skintype. From early teens to mid 30's. Go try it!!
I have noticed that I reach for Niveas stuff over any other brand. No, I'm not sponsored to say this. It's just that I can trust their things. They don't do me any harm, they perform well, they have a great pricepoint and they can be found just about anywhere.

Usually I show you polishes I like. Last weeks post was a borderline case. But this week, I thought I'd share a polish I really really don't like! To keep things fresh and honest. And it's such a spring color!
I want something like this, but slightly more naturally looking and with better application.
Which polish in your collection do you want to love but it wont let you?

Do you guys know when it's time to throw away your mascara? I bet everyone of you have your own tells.
When it starts to get dry and flaky is a great warningsign that you might have to
replace it sometime soon. Another one that I just discovered is when it starts to irritate your eyes. Like you've got bits of mascara falling into your eyes all day and they itch and hurt. It's gotten to the point where I get a headache from it! I will not do this to myself anymore! I can't grow new eyes. Evolution and science haven't cracked that nut yet. Freaky if they had?
Got any suggestions for me? I've been eyeing Lancomes Hypnose Star mascara for ages! You know the one with glitter on the end of the bottle! I almost got last years special edition of it. The funky stars from Alba Elbaz. But I'm trying to hold out in case they do something like that this year.

The glimmer is hardly noticeable on the nails, but I know it's there. Why don't I like this then? Oh, where shall I start? First off, since it is an OPI polish it means high end. That in turns had my expectations pretty high. It applies unevenly like mad. I have to put another polish underneath to even give it a fighting chance to look good. It streaks and the color payoff isn't the best. It gets darker closer to the nail bed and gets thinner as you go. The formula is really really thin! I think there's where it falters. If the formula had been just a tiny bit thicker it wouldn't have these problems. But since it's so thin it dries fast? You could think that, but you would be wrong. Why do I use it then? Be cause it is sooooo pretty! It's a gorgeous sophisticated color. Looks nothing like the bottle no matter what you do. As for wearing time, you get about three to four days use out of it. Pretty ok, not great.
My first ever OPI polish and it disappointed me. I wouldn't recommend buying this. Not that I think you can anymore. But if you find it, take another one instead. My honest and most heartfelt opinion.
Which OPI polish do you love or hate? Which polish drives you absolutely up the walls?

I found mine in a sales shop and snagged just one. I wasn't too sure about the other ones but I thought that Peach Kiss looked promising.
And let me tell you, I am hooked!

1. Greed. What is your most inexpensive and most expensive beauty items?
Most inexpensive must be my new eyeshadow palette from W7. Most expensive on the other hand. That I have in my collection right now, or that I'd ever owned? I'll go with right now. It's my L'Oreal Infallible Foundation.
2. Wrath. What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with?
As of now, my Rimmel Color Rush stick.
3. Gluttony. What are your most delicious beauty products?
My Babylips in Peach Kiss and Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush in Juiced Berry. It's something berry at least. The first part have faded with lots of love.
When I'm lazy, I'm really lazy. I don't put any makeup on at all.
5. Pride. What beauty product gives you the most confidence?
Beyond a doubt my mascara! Without it I'm blah and pale.
6. Lust. What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
Why doesn't it ask what attributes do I find the most attractive in a beauty product? That would make more sense! Oh well..The eyes! Oh beautiful captivating eyes!
7. Envy. What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
High on my wish list is one of the Naked palettes, I can't decide which one, the porefessional primer from Benefit, the Too Faced Chocolate bar palette and Taylor Swifts Wonderstruck perfume.
Now lovelies, I tag all of you!

It's a cool toned grey bordering on the blue side. It applies thin and somewhat uneven. You'll have to be very patient and have loads of time to get this one right. And knowing me, always on the go and about, I mess it up more times than not. But when I get it right, oh my, it's beautiful! It wears really well. But be ware, use a base coat or it will stain your nails. They'll go a bit yellowish. To spark things up a bit I put a dark grey/black polish with silverglitters over the grey on my ring fingers. I love me some silversparkle! I've had it for about a week now and only have some tip wear, but no chipping!
All in all, I like it, but I wish the application were a bit more even and predictable.
