Sally Hansen HD Opulent cloud swatch and NOTD - mesmerizing

Hello, dear readers and followers:)

How are you doing?

Hope you're having a great weekend on this sunny and autumn day!

Today I've got for you the famous Sally Hansen Opulent cloud which I got in my swap with Elizabeth from Lacquered Lizard.

What to say about this colour that hasn't been already said:) I love it, love the brush and the application, what I don't love is that it is so too sheer. There are 4 coats in the pictures! But it dries pretty fast and the final result is still worth it.

The colour is an slight duochrome or perhaps triochrome:), it changes from grey, gold to lavender purple. mesmerizing!

What do you think of the colour? Do you own it perhaps? Or any other similar colours?

Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a nice and polished weekend:*

ps. I've seen that we're just 1 follower away to a big giveaway, YAY!

 Thank you so much for following and reading me:*

New from CND: Spring 2011

Hello, dear readers and followers,

I've just received an email about CND Spring colours for 2011.

Let's take a look at it!

What CND says about it:

Perfectly Bare C&E duo CC

''Better Than Bare: Manicures Lighten Up For Spring 2011

CND Introduces Spring's Limited Edition Colour & Effect
October 2010 - "Ethereal, femme manicures in opaque porcelain, shimmery finishes, dark blues, grays and reds will be the 'it' looks this spring," says CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold.

Flesh Forward CC

Clean, gorgeous and modern - the new neutral for Spring is better than natural. To get a peachy-perfect manicure, try CND's limited edition Perfectly Bare Colour, a porcelain crème, or layer it with limited edition Perfectly Bare Shimmer Effect for a kiss of texture. To achieve Behnaz Sarafpour's "Halo Manicure," try Perfectly Bare Colour with Silver Chrome edged along the perimeter for a heavenly finish. At Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs, flawlessly fresh manicures were created by mixing Perfectly Bare Colour with Super Matte Top Coat for a warm, satin matte finish.

Effervescent Effects CC

Shimmer steals the spotlight this season as Effects provide a manicure makeover with tone and dimension in pops of reflective color in copper, scarlet, or gold. For a gorgeous glimmer, try Scarlett Shimmer as seen at Carolina Herrera,or layer Perfectly Bare Shimmer over Putty like the luminescent manicures at Monique Lhuillier. To get 3.1 Phillip Lim's "City Slick" nails, top Asphalt with Copper Shimmer for an elegant, deep-bronze manicure with attitude, or mix a custom blend of Silver Chrome, Putty, and Ice Blue Shimmer for the washed-out chrome look seen at Gottex. For a truly decadent look, embellish your Effect manicure with nail jewelry fit for a duchess, like the "Cocktail Nails" seen at Diego Binetti.

Diplomatic Darks CC
Turn your back on black and say hello to rich tonal shades of blue, oxblood red and berry. For luscious nails like the pedicures at Marc Jacobs, try berry-hued Bloodline, or grab CND's Jason Wu Collection (available in May 2011) for the blue-based red Veronica, seen on the runway at Jason Wu. For Ruffian's "Monogram Moon Manicure," use one layer of Putty layered with Washed Down White and trimmed in Blackjack for a new spin on classic 40's manicures. To achieve "Van Gogh-blue" nails seen at L.A.M.B., mix half a bottle of Speedey Top Coat with equal parts Inkwell, Anchor Blue and Brilliant White.
NEW The Look: Spring 2010 box set of Perfectly Bare Colour and Perfectly Bare Shimmer Effect is $20, available while supplies last starting in March 2011 at select salons and professional beauty stores.

Colour & Effects are available in professional beauty stores, salons and spas nationwide. Suggested retail price for Colour is $9, Effects are $11, and Base and Top Coats are $8.50. For additional information, please visit''

What  do you think of the colour and effects? Find some you fancy? Do you think that mannequin nails will still be fashionable next year?

Bundled Rich&Famous with BM12

Hello, dear readers and followers,
it's Fridayyyyyyyyyyyy! Hurray for that:)

Today's manicure is simple and cheerful;) There aren't a lot of flowers outside anymore, so a few on the nails would do the thing. I used China glaze Rich&Famous (fully swatched HERE) and Bundle monster image plate BM12 and Konad special nail polish in white.

How do you fancy this manicure?
Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a nice and polished weekend:*
