Monday Rage. I know it's tuesday.... But still.

Today was such an awful day. Well really it wasn't but at first it felt like it.

I felt like this when I left to work:

But now I'm feeling more like this:

I hate days when you, for no reason at all!!!, feel like you could burn everything that comes in your way. Do you ever have days like this?

Stupid Monday.

I know it's Tuesday but it's Monday for me. Feels like a Monday.

Sugar/sand Nails

Here are two sets of nails I painted this week. :)

This is from my OPI Brazil Collection: Beach Sandies Liquid Sand Mini Nail Polish Set and the color is I'm Brazil Nuts Over You. I just love the bright bright red. <3 Opis dry very fast and the polish is nice to put on.
This is from Isadora Sugar Crush Collection and it's called Turquoise Crush. These are the best sugar texture polishes I've tried on so far. :) They're bright, they have lot's of bling and the color is super nice and even. Only two coats and it looks this great. The brush in these polishes is a bit big but it works for me because I have big hands/nails.

Next week I'll be trying this spanking new frosted matt effect polish from Lumene. It's called Hazy Cloud/Utuharso.

Are there any polishes you would like to see me try? Maybe something you've been afraid to buy yourself and you want to see someone trying them on first?
Give me your answers in the comments below and let's see if I can make something happen :)

You Will Know My Name

I've been a fan of Alissa White-Gluz for a while now and I was super excited that Arch Enemy came to Finland so soon after their change of lead singer. They played on friday 19th of September in The Circus, Helsinki.
As some of you may know Angela Gossow stepped down from being the lead singer and front face for Arch Enemy because of personal reasons. Gossow chose Alissa White-Gluz from Canadian metal band The Agonist as her replacement.

She is a such a fun person. I love her hair, her sense of style, her singing and grunting and roaring. She was super awesome on stage and I really enjoyed all the songs theid played even though I have only heard Arch Enemys newest album War Eternal.

You just gotta love the hair ^^ <3

Re-review on the L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis nail polishes

So yesterday I ranted about the new L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis nail polishes (aka the 50 Shades of Grey -polishes). I even wrote to L'oréal to ask about these polishes and they were very kind and explained to me that these are in fact texture nail polishes. There were no swatches at the store so I went and bought these without knowing what I was buying.

I had bought two different shades:
L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis 893 Metallic Cuff/Secret Wish - metallic effect (kynsilakka antaa kynnelle tekstuurisen rouheisen metallipinnan)
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis 890 Masque Lover - granite effect (kynsilakka antaa graniittisen tekstuuripinnan)

So it turns out that the "metallic effect" isn't just in the different shine of the polish - it looks almost foggy-like in the bottle. The people from L'oréal explained that the texture is suppose to have a grindy and grainy metallic feel to it. And this in my opinnion is in contradiction with each other. I think of metallic beign something solid and fluid. Not grindy and harsh and very textured. I this just me or do you feel the same way? This is why I was so disappointed after trying this 893 Metallic Cuff because the end result wasn't anything I had expected.

This picture is taken from here and is owned by L'oréal

There are also the Spiky effect and Latex effect -polishes in the collection. I wonder what the spiky one is like. o_O

So these are my swatches from earlier today:
L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis 893 Metallic Cuff/Secret Wish - metallic effect on my wedding ring finger.

The more I look at this one the more I dislike it. It's not metallic in my opinnion. Maybe I need some time to let it grow on me?

L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis 890 Masque Lover - granite effect on all my other fingers.

This one is more acceptable if I may say so. The sparkles and little grainy bits are just what the granite effect "promises" in my mind.

What do think of these nail polishes? Have you bought any of the other ones from this collection? Am I too obsessed about my nails? :D

Furious and Desperate

UPDATE! 17.9.2014 klo 14.00

AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA! Ooon ollu aivan tonttu!

Voi ziisus! Sain vastauksen L'oréalilta - nämä on tosiaan molemmat tekstuurilakkoja, joista jää erilaiset pinnat. Tuo "latex effect" on semmoinen sileä, joista oli myymälässä myös kuva esillä. Swatcheja ei ollut lainkaan.
L'oréalin vastaus:
"L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis 893 Secret Wish-kynsilakka antaa kynnelle tekstuurisen rouheisen metallipinnan.
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis 890 Masque Lover -kynsilakka antaa graniittisen tekstuuripinnan."
Kovasti myös pahoittelivat kokemaani mielipahaa ja ettei laatu ollut sitä mitä odotin.

No turhaan pahoittelivat, kun minähän tässä olen ollut se uuno, joka on luullut, että lakat ovat pilalla. Tässä nähdään swatchien voima, ilman niitä on näemmä vaikea elää xD MAinosmateriaaleista sai kyllä reilusti erilaisen mielikuvan. Muutenkin hämää tuo "metallic effect" - luulin että se antaa vain hieman erilaisen kiillon lakalle - tosiaan odottanut "rouheisuutta". Latex effecteissä taas oli selkeästi supersupersuper kiiltävä pinta.

Nyt alan lakkaamaan kynsiäni rauhassa, enkä hermostu tuosta tekstuurista. Vaikka on kyllä semmoinen olo, että pystynkö elämään lakan kanssa, jota luulin vialliseksi :(


TURNS OUT THAT I WAS SOOOOO WRONG! These ARE texture polishes and they are meant to give you a different surfaces on the nails. There were no swatches in the store and the advertising material lead me completely off.
Now I'm gonna go and polish my nails again. :D

Byhyyy! I bought these amazing nail polishes from L'oréal Paris Color Riche. And they're absolute rubbish! At least on my nails. :(
NOOOOOO! They're not rubbish! I'm rubbish!

The one on the left is Masque Lover 890 and the one on the right is Metallic Cuff 893.

Both of them start to form bubbles on my nails. I only use quality base coats but in this case it didn't seem to matter. What ever I did the end result was still the same. I buffed my nails, I cleansed them well, used base coat, gave the base coat time to dry (over an hour...) and applied only thin coats of this color polish but still.

This is the bubbling I was talking about:

What am I doing wrong here? Does anyone know? I'm desperate. Well... almost. But it sucks to have spend 5,90 euros per bottle only to find out these polishes behave like this. I normally use Isadora, Sally Hansen, Opi or Lumene on my nails so this is a new thing for me.

I'll leave you with a few images of me in my weave :)
