Once you get a hold of these cute top coats, you will want to explore ALL of your options:

From the left: Essence 01 I love this city, Manhattan 11A, Catrice 490 Iron Mermaiden, Essence What do you think?, Dermacol 1
Black and golden top coats...beautiful! The golden colour really stands out on a darker base coat.

Can you say CRACKLE?

Soft pastel colours with a silver top coat, equally beautiful, albeit to a different effect.

Sorry for the messy bit, I was just too excited :-)

P2 crack ling top coat review

Some things in life never cease to amaze me, like, for example shopping trips to Germany. For many months, I have been dreaming about crackling nail polish and then, a single trip to Aachen answers all my beauty dreams: golden and silver crackling top coats: (they also sell a black one, all are 11 ml)

020 silver blast and 030 golden rush, both p2 cosmetics
Initially, I was sceptical: I mean how good can it be, golden and silver, I simply could not twist my brain around it. Then, my sister put on Essence multi dimention xxxlshine nail polish in 76 cool and the gang (8 ml) and the miracle happened:

Ladies: this nail polish DOES crackle BIG TIME and within SECONDS. I was really happy with Claire's crackle nail polish, but this one really surpassed all of my expectations! It lasts for days and trust me, you will not regret buying this nail polish! Don't be afraid of putting a really thick layer on, it will still crackle like crazy!

Golden and silver pencils

Back to basics - every woman should own these two pencils, any golden and silver will do! Metallics are a on and off trend, so you want to stock up. Generally, you can use these pencils to make your eyes look bigger and brighter (when you apply them around your tear duct area or under the brow bone).

This is Essence metallic eye pencil in 03 iron goddess and Bourjois 13 argent créatif eyeliner pencil.
I really like them both, they have a nice staying power, so off you go, make yourself pretty :-).

Hand care gloves p2

I've meaning to get these gloves for ages, it was just a bit hard getting a hold of them. However, a trip to Aachen solved my problem :-) They are selling p2 cosmetics at DM.

So it is really easy, before you go to bed, you apply a rich hand cream (contains grape seed oil, evening primrose oil and shea butter, with rosa aroma) and put the gloves on, done, silky smooth hands are now a reality!

Catrice nail polish - 490 Iron Mermaiden

You know the feeling, the second you see it, you know you have to have it :-). It was the same with this nail polish, I am so looking forward to trying it on together with a crackling top coat!

 I am mesmerised by that indescribable, changing colour - a mix of grey, violet, green...really pretty! Think pearls! I applied 2 coats. It is 10 ml. It promises: the ultimate colour, ultimate gloss, ultimate coverage. And I was really impressed by it!
Changing colours in the flashlight...

Essence I love Berlin

As they put these babies on sale in Dinant Kruidvat, it would be a sin to leave them behind :-) 90 cents each. 8 ml. 01 I love this city (pink), 02 I'm a Berliner (green).
Who does not love Berlin?
01 I love this city
Immediately I tried the pink one, one coat is pretty strong, but I applied two. It dries reasonably quickly. The same is true of the green one, one coat is sufficient, but if you are like me, loving full coverage, you will go for two coats. And for the record, I do love Berlin!
