A Sin Worth Committing

Dear Reader

Dear reader,
Thank you for visiting my blog. At the moment I'm having a little break and trying to find new inspiration to play with my nails.
I'll be back soon!


China Glaze Emotion (Romantique)

>> Wednesday, March 4, 2009

Today my nails are wearing Emotion from China Glaze:



I'm not sure if I like this one or not. It's almost pink but not really. Dirty pink with metallic shimmer, I guess? Actually it's a bit deeper and brighter than in pictures.

But the one thing I love about this and other Romantique Collection's nail polishes is that they look totally different outdoors and indoors. You don't get bored with them that easily!


Old-Timer of the week: Anytime Dates

>> Friday, February 27, 2009

Here's this week's Old-Timer:

Anytime Dates.

This one is a cutie (again!). It's actually more pink, almost fuchsia. I have no idea why I haven't worn it before (!), it's such a beautiful color and it has a great shimmer and nice bluish reflection. Actually I have many Anytime's nail polishes which I haven't worn yet so you are going to see many polishes from this brand...

And as you can see, polishes do not get old. They are just like women: they just keep getting better!

Best before 06/2007...

Actually I compared this with China Glaze's Limbo Binbo and they were almost identical! Now I don't need Limbo Binbo that much.


OPI I'm Indi-a Mood for Love

>> Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Going pink again!

Today's pink polish is OPI's I'm Indi-a Mood for Love.

It's a beautiful, creamy polish. It covers well, I'm using two coats in this picture. For some reason I just can't resist these pink polishes.

At the moment I'm also really drooling for China Glaze's Limbo Bimbo, which I just keep staring and touching at work. I think it's the most beautiful pink I've ever seen and I just have to order it one day. But as you know there's no sense ordering just one nail polish when you have to pay the postage costs also so I have to order many other polishes too...poor me!

Do you have Limbo Bimbo? Do you love it too?


NYX Girls Lingerie

>> Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Today's polish is NYX Girls Lingerie.

I really expected more from this polish and I have to admit that it was a disapointment. In fact I'm so disapointed that I don't even want to say anything about this dull and boring polish.

They say one picture tells 1000 worlds so here's a short story for you, dear reader:

And as you can see, it didn't even last well.
(But it had a lovely diamond on the bottle!)


OPI Italian Love Affair

>> Monday, February 23, 2009

What's the cutest color in the world?

Look how adorable this is! It has almost a creamy finish (just a little bit of shimmer) and it's so beautiful and the color is so soft. It needs two coats, I'm wearing three in this picture.

I wanted to add some effect and added a layer of Lumene's Horizon on top and here's how it looks:


China Glaze in Kicks!

>> Sunday, February 22, 2009

Good news for all my Finnish, Swedish and Norvegian readers!

Kicks is taking China Glaze to their sortiment!
(And for those of you who have no idea what is Kicks: It's our Sephora, Boots or CVS.)

At first they are going to start with only 12 colors:
-Golden Meringe
-Limbo Bimbo
-Rich & Famous
-Evening Seduction
-Shocking pink
-Go Crazy Red
-White on White
-Ruby Pumps

I really hope that they would expand their range quickly. In Finland the price will be 9,9€ so they aren't as cheap as bought from the Internet but the price isn't that bad.

They should be shortly available in Finland. Don't know if they already are in Sweden? Kicks is a Swedish store so they usually have everything first. Have you, my dear Swedish (or Norwegian) readers, seen Chine Glaze there already?

Are you happy to be able to buy China Glaze from Kicks?


China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic

>> Saturday, February 21, 2009

Today I was wearing China Glaze's Rodeo Fanatic for the first time and at the moment I think it also was the last time.

At first I wore it alone (three layers) and I didn't like it at all. It's not black but it's not blue or turquoise...not sure what it is. But it doesn't look cute on me, it has a little too much of attitude and rock n' roll, eventough it has that nice shimmering effect. In these pictures it's a bit too blue, it's actually more emerald.

Finally I added a layer of Anytime's Sparkling Fizz on top and that actually made me almost to like this manicure. But it was just almost. I didn't even make an effort to remove the excess polish from my cuticles.

The lacquering reminds me of a starry sky.

Do you like Rodeo Fanatic?


Old-timer of the week: Anytime Celebration

>> Thursday, February 19, 2009

Like I said I own over 150 polishes which I haven't introduced to you yet. A huge part of them are so old that they aren't even available anymore. And the fact is that nail polishes don't get too old, you can almost always revive them and use every bit of them. So I got an idea to start a new serie:

The Old-Timer of the Week.

And here's this weeks Old-Timer:

Anytime Celebration.

Everyone in Finland knows Anytime. It's a brand that doesn't exist anymore (discontinued in summer 2008) but almost every make up using Finnish girl has started with Anytime. If you know the Finnish cosmetic brand "Lumene" this is it's "little sister", something similar that Maybelline is to Loreal.

This was the same nail polish that I was using four years ago with my matching "prom dress". It's really girly with beautiful shimmer. I still love this color! Don't have any idea why I haven't used this since.
And as you can see it really is an old-timer, here's the best before -day:

06/2007! So it must be at least four or five years old. But it's as good as any of my new nail polishes.
(And by the way, I just found out that the color is quite smilar to Nfu-oh 67.)


OPI Mauve-lous Memories

>> Wednesday, February 18, 2009

Thankfully we here in Finland were blessed with another bright and sunny (but cold!) day and I was able to take a good picture of todays polish.

Today's polish is OPI's Mauve-lous Memories and it's so freaking awesome! I think it's a bit more pink than mauve, but I believe it's mauve because the name says so and I can not disagree with OPI. Please, take a closer look! You can see the delicate golden shimmer. Aww! <3 I don't want to take this off ever!

And as some of you might remember, I've made some promise not to buy any new nail polishes for a while. So here's a great information for those of you who might have been afraid that I'm not going to make that many new posts because of my promise: I just counted my nail polishes last evening and there were over 150 polishes that I haven't introduced to you.
So I just have to quote Apu from the Simpsons:
