Bear Pawlish Mulbearry Lane


Anyone ele that has started to long For fall? I'm in that inbetween Summer and Fall mood. You know, when you don't want Summer to end but really loking forward to Fall. Ys, It's still warm outside but I want fall colours on my nails right now, hence I wore Bear Pawih Mulbearry Lane today.

Mulbearry Lane is a deep purple-ish, wine red holo. The holographic effect is super strong and the colour is realy sexy. I love the colour. It looks more purpe in some lights and in others it looks more win red. A gorgeous fall colour.

The formula is great. It's very pigmented but doesn't stain. The finish becomes shiny and smooth. This is two coats and top coat.

What you see in the pictures are two coats of Bear Pawlih Mulbearry Lane and one coat of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat.

Smitten Polish Shoe Polish

Hi sweethearts!

Today I'll show you a group custom for a Smitten Polish FB-group. As you may know Smitten is now caled Dreamland Lacquer.

Shoe Polish is a white scattered holo with  opalescent flakies and pink shimmer. It's absolutely gorgeous. It reminds me of snow, winter and ice. It's so beautiful. I'm actually a bit sad that you can't get a hold of this one anymore cause I'd like aback up of it. That's how much I like it. The pink shimmer was super hard for my camera to capture. It's more prominent in real life and in indirect sunlight. These pictures are taken in artificial lighting.

The formula was good. It was a bit thick, but in no way difficult to apply. The first two coats were a bit patchy but a third leveled the finish out. The finish becomes slightly textured so top coat i needed for a smooth finish. This is three coats and top coat.

what you see in the pictures are three coats of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat and one coat of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat.

Lilypad Lacquer Rebel at Heart

Hi darlings!

Let's take look at one of my favourite reds, Lilypad Lacquer Rebel at Heart. I can't believe I haven't shown you this one before because I've worn it more times than I can remember.

Rebel at Heart is a deep, deep blood red holo. It's so stunning. It's so vibrant and really vampy. Honestly, your polish collection won't be complete without this one.

The formula is great, a little thin but since it's so pigemented one coat gives full coverage. I did two for more depth.

What you see in the pictures are twoc oats of Lilypad Lacquer Rebel at Heart and one coat of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat.

I'll be at the Lake is a bright blue metallic with gorgeous turquoise, pink and purple shimmer and a subtle holographic effect. These pictures are taken in artificial lighting, which brings out the beautiful holo effect and turquoise shimmer. In indirect sunlight it looks almost multichrome , shifting between blue, pink and purple.
I found it to be a tad sheer. This is three coats and top coat. Otherwise the formula is great. I'ts completely self leveling and in no way streaky.

Glam Polish No Lei-Overs! (LE) Swatches & Review

Hi darlings!

Today I want to show you Glam Polish No Lei-Overs! Collection. It's a gorgeous  six piece collection inspired by the  Hawaiian islands. And yes, it really makes you think of beaches, coconut drinks and palm trees in the sun.

There are four glitters and two holos in this collection. The formulas of all of them are great. The glitters are thick but not too thick and easy to apply. The holos go on so smoothly and levels out perfectly.

I really wish I was at a beach in a tropical paradise. Here in Sweden it seems like fall is already on its way. It's already starting to get colder and darker outside.

All photos are taken in artificial lighting. 

Hawaii Kai

Hawaii Kai is a turquoise leaning teal base with blue, turquoise, teal and bright green glitter. This is the Ocean in a bottle. It's absolutely gorgeous and one of my favorites in the collection.
Two coats and top coat.

Lanikai Dreaming

Lanikai Dreaming is pale gold holo with lots and lots of matte pink and white glitter. It's fun, flirty and feminine. Since the base is so neutral this is perfect for both work and a friday night out. The base tones it down while still being really glittery and pretty. The only prolem I had with this one is that even after two coats of top coat the finish was slightly textured.

Two coats and top coat.

Hanalei Sunset

Hanalei Sunset is a gorgeous blurple jelly with blue, pink and purple prismatic glitter. It has so much depth. It was super hard to photograph though. This is one of those polishes you really have to see for yourself.

Two coats and top coat

Lei'd in Lahaina

Lei'd in Lahaina is a magenta holo with magenta, pink,  white and even som copper glitter. It sparkles like crazy! Even though there's so much glitter in it one coat of top coat does the trick and makes the finish shiny and smooth.

Two coats and top coat.

Hibiscus Hideaway

Hibiscus Hideaway is an orange toned red holo. In some lightings it leans more orange and in other more red. In some it even leans pinkish red. This is my favourite from the collection. I'm a sucker for vibrant reds and this one is perfection. The holo is strong and adds depth to the aready beautiful colour of the base. And, it doesn't stain (!!!) even though it's so pigmented.

One coat and top coat.

Waikiki Wahine

Waikiki Wahine is a berry pink holo with blue and purple shimmer in it. This is very pretty, but the one I liked the least in the collection. Don't got me wrong, I really like it, it's just that I like the others more.

Two coats and top coat.

Cupcake Polish Berry Good Looking

Hi sweeties!

Today I'll share a new favourite of mine, Cupcake Berry Good Looking from the Berry Patch Collection. 
The Berry Patch Collection consists of six wondefully holographic polishes. This was the one that was a must have for me.
I kept seeing this everywhere and loved the swatches of it. It's even more amazing in real life.

Berry Good Looking is an almost neon violet super linear holo. It's vibrant, intense and gorgeous. Right now it's my favourite polish. It's just that beautiful.

The formula is great. Two coats give ful coverage. The finish becomes shiny and smooth.

Colors by Llarowe Time to Chill Collection: Swatches & Review

Hi darlings!

Today I'll share a new collection from Colors by Llarowe called Time to Chill. The collection is excusive to Hypnotic Polish and can only be bought from there. From the beginning I had my mind set on three of them but I ended up buying the whole collection.

I wanted new holographic neons since last summer's failure from Mentality. Or scandal. Whatever you want to call it was horrible.

Anyway, the Time to Chill Collection consists of six neon holos. They're all stunning and perfect for summer. Overall the formula is good. A few of them were very sheer and others perfectly normal. Usually when I do a mani with neon I do a white base but for these swatches I didn't so you can actually see the coverage. Thy all dry to semi-matte finish so you need top coat if you want the finish to be shiny.

The photos are taken in artificial lightning.

Island Escape

Island Escape is a neon lime green scattered holo. The colour is so lovely and bright. Perfect neon green. The only downside is that it's a bit sheer on it's own. With a white base you'd probably need two coats.
Shown is three coats plus top coat.

Hello Starfish

Hello Starfish is a watrmlon neon pink scattered holo. This is so pretty. It's surprisingly my favorite from the collection. I'm no big fan of pink but I love this. It's just so summer-y and vibrant. I think it's the least neon one in the collection.
Two coat plus top coat. 

Bikinis & Flip Flops

Bikinis & Flip Flops is a neon purple scattered holo. This one was so hard to photograph. It's a bit lighter in real life. It's such a juicy, intense colour.
Two coats plus top coat.

Zest for Life

Zest for Life is a neon yellow scattered holo. There's a few drops of green in that yellow making it ook evn more neon. I love the coour but it's very sheer. As with Island Escape this one would benefit from a white base.
Shown is three coats plus top coat.

Cocktail Party

Cocktail Party is a neon magenta scattered holo. This is another one that was really hard to photograph. It's a tad lighter and slightly more pink in real life. The colour is gorgeous. It's so vibrant! And the holo makes it even prettier.
Two coats plus top coat.

Sweet Nectar

Sweet Nectar is a neon orange scattered holo. This is such an amazing orange. It's so intense! I love it. This one was also a bit sheer but nowhere near Island Escape and Zest for Life. 
Two coats plus top coat.
