Orly Space Cadet

I have decided to wear more of the polishes in my stash that have been somewhat forgotten. So I took out Orly Space Cadet. In one word it is just amazing. Of course with all its multichrome goodness going on it is impossible to photograph. This was three coats. If I had to find a negative, on me it takes a while to dry.

Jessica Bikini Blue

I love pale blue, green and blue-green polishes of all kinds. I like how they look, so you can bet I'm craving Dior Porcelaine. But for now I'm making do with Jessica Bikini Blue, one of the palest blue polishes I have. Comparison-wise it is quite close to Essence You Belong To Me.
This was three thin coats and top coat.

OPI Midnight Blue Glitter

I haven't worn this polish in ages, and the last time I showed Midnight Blue Glitter my photos didn't really show how pretty it is. The blue glitter catches the light at different angles making the whole polish light up. This was two coats over silvery-grey polish.

L'Oreal Mysterious Icon

L'Oreal Mysterious Icon (#805) is a bronze brown shade with golden shimmer, but it also has some purple and grey mixed in the base. I don't have anything remotely close to this polish in my stash. The formula is nice too, I used 2 thin coats. The best thing about these L'Oreal polishes is the brush, it is one of the nicest rounded brushes I've encountered.

Catrice Mint Me Up

Mint Me Up came into my stash just the other day and quite by accident, but I'm really happy that it now lives with me :) It is a fantastic and delicate-looking polish, pale green wth golden shimmer and tiny copper flakes. The overall effect is quite lovely! The formula is quite good as well - I used 2 thin coats, but I think you can get away with one thicker coat applied carefully. The base color of this polish is rather similar to OPI Mermaid's Tears, but with the shimmer the effect is quite different.

Kiko 391 + L'Oreal Confettis

Happy New Year to all my lovely readers!
Kiko 391 is probably the brightest, grass-green polish I own. I don't have any other shades that are quite like this. Any brighter and we are entering neon territory. On its own Kiko 391 is a lovely creme polish, I used two thin coats, just a bit too bright for me. So I used L'Oreal Confettis on top. Confettis are actually quite lovely! It is packed with small and large black and white hex glitter as well as some faint shimmer that is hardly noticeable. Together these polishes make for a gorgeous combination!
