Ebalay Nail Polish Swatches

Ebalay - 008 and 012

Sorry for the lack of posts. During summer I spend a lot of my
time outside without a computer, so posting will be sporadic.

I was asked in a haul post where these Ebalay polishes was
included if I could swatch them first. And that is a good idea as
there is a -25% offer at where I
got them from. But it is only until May 31st. No code needed.

I have to insert a jump brake here as this post has many photos...

Hauls from the Past - Part 1 PIC HEAVY

These haul posts should have been posted ages ago.
Most of them are from last year. But I never got round to
it so I thought would combine them in one post or two.

Beauty Cosmetics

There was more polishes in my first order from Beauty Cosmetic
 but my sister took all of the Orange polishes I had in this order. I
got my first Essence Color and Go polishes, my first Flormar and
Gabrini polishes. And some Classics Polishes, the small glitter 
bottles in the front and Metallics, but I think they are Golden Rose.

Born Pretty Store

A bunch of Water Decals from Born Pretty Store. I have not used
so many of them yet. And some of them I have already given away.
You can click the photos to see them bigger and get a better view.


With a glitter hysteria going on a while ago I wanted to jump on the
wagon and placed an order at Kkcenterhk. I wanted to try out some
new brands. I got BestSence, Ouqian and Ebalay and at that some Waterdecals.


Don't forget to use the 10% off code for orders at


KKCenterHk - Coupon Amount: 10% off. End Date: Jan. 31st, 2013

Light In The Box

My order from Light In The Box took a while to come.
And one of the polishes was smashed up in shipping.
Good thing the polishes was packed in small baggies
so that the other bottles was not covered in polish. I'm
still waiting for the replacement to come.

Maybe I should have taken the refund instead.
And then ordered the missing polish from
Born Pretty Store instead. Because they have
the same BK Fashion Nail Color polishes.

Ninja Polish

This polish haul is from April this year.
 Rhonni over at Polish Ninja Blog was doing a Group Buy from Brazil. I was
in on the 4th one. I don't think she does them anymore but you can just get the
polishes from Ninja Polish Shop, it is basically the same thing but a web shop.
I wanted some Hits Flake, Holographic and Duo/multi Chrome Polises.
But she missed to send me one polish - Dionisio, and I'm still waiting for it.

Here in Sweden we have lots of Make Up Stores and I went and
bought three of their Holographic Polishes and the Aqua Fix
Base Coat for holos. I use it only under the Make Up Store holos.

Sorry for this bulk post but I'm trying to catch up.

New Cheeky Plates coming...

I can see some awesome beach nails done with this plate from
the NEW Cheeky Beauty Image Plate collection that is coming

And that's a "Piece of Pie"

Sponged Gradient - NOTD

With polishes from my Epic Polish Haul I wanted to try out the "NEW" way of
sponging. I did a search and found a method that The Nailasaurus shows HERE.
All I can say is that this manicure sure got a lot of attention and stares from people.

Essence - Chilled Orange and Lounge Chair Affair
MeMeMe - Vivacious and Savina - Purple Prince

Here's how I did it:
I started out with a base coat and a layer of white polish. This so that
the colors would "pop". Then I painted my nails with the lightest color
Essence "Soul Sista" - Chilled OrangeFollowing the steps in
The Nailasaurus post using the lightest color and the remaning colors
Essence "Soul Sista" - Lounge Chair Affair, MeMeMe - Vivacious
and Savina - Purple Prince I dabbed my nails with a cosmetic sponge.
Because sponging makes the nails a bit bumpy I applied a couple of coats
of a thicker topcoat to smooth out the surface. I mattified one of my nails.

I fell in love with the matte nail. How about you... Do you like it shiny or matte?

This is my epic haul. For now just a quick run through. More
pictures and hopefully some swatches to come later on.

Finally my first Catrice, Eyeko polishes and essence image plates.
I ordered a lot of Essence Color and Go polishes. I also wanted to try out
the Essence Season of Extremes and Colour³ doubble ended polishes.

I also got: MeMeMe Best Seller Collection - Pink

MeMeMe Nail Care Collection

MeMeMe Nail Polish Collection - Brights

With my order I got some free gifts. Face primers, eyeshadows and candy.

This was my first time ordering from Maquillalia.
It took a little over a week to get to me in Sweden.
