My Essence Image Plates

I only have two Essence Image Plates. The image plate with the "LOVE" print came in a set with a stamper and scraper. The other was a single plate.

I have not tried the stamper and scraper as they don't seem that great. Besides I don't use metallic scrapers on any of my plates. Even thought a metall scraper may not harm your plates it does scrath them. And I just don't like that. So i use a plastic scraper or an old credit card or gift card.

These image plates are a lot smaller than I thought they would be (
4,4cm x 5,6cm). But I still like them. Perfect for smaller nails too.

I thought I would share with you all of the image plates I have. So far I have posted my three Bundle Monster Sets. Click the links if you want to have a closer look at those. - Pic Heavy Posts!

But then I have a lot of Konads and other brands and some random image plates that I will be posting photos of. So keep you eyes peeled. I hope the posts will be useful. And that you like my photos of the image plates.

Nubar vs. MISSHA

In my swatch post about the MISSHA - JBR01 polish I said it
reminded me of an other polish. It is Nubar - Gem. In the bottle
they seem to be similar. But on the nail the shade is different.

 With just one coat you can see the the Nubar polish is way lighter
in color. But they both have the same holographic glitter in them.
So I am not that far off. They are siblings or atleast cousins. Above
and below photos are without top coat taken in artificial lighting.

 I had to apply three coats of Nubar but with MISSHA you can get
away with only one coat. But I have a rule to use atleast 2 coats of
any polish. Below photos are taken in natural lighting with top coat.

Peacock Delight - NOTW

This manicure I have really enjoyed. I can't stop staring at it. I've seen people on
the bus and subway stare at them too. I'm not a fan of blue, but I still wanted to try
a dark blue stamp on this. It just seemed like the best choise. And I'm loving it.

As a base color I have MISSHA - HGR01. On that I did a gradient
stamping with Konad Special Polish - Blue and Royal Purple
using Bundle Monster Plate BM15 (1st set) and BM-212 (2nd set).

Ebay Haul Swatches - Part 2

I've had this polish on my toes a lot of times, worn it on my finger nails
a few times too. It is one of my favorites. Now it is time to show it to you.
This is MISSHA Crystal Nail Polish - HGR01. This polish has a strong
rosy scent that lingers on. You can smell it even after a few coats of SV.


You need 2-3 coats to get full cover. I did three for the photos. No
top coat. Application is easy with the wide brush. Not so streaky.

Are you ready to see the color change?

How do you like them apples?

Anyone notice how fast my nails grew from the first
swatch post? This is my nails now. The swatches from
Ebay Haul Swatches - Part 1 is from a while back.

MISSHA - JBR01 (Day light)

Here comes swatches of MISSHA Crystal Nail Polish - JBR01.
Two or three thin coats is needed. Easy application with a wide
brush, if you like that sort of thing, and I do. A top coat is needed
as the glitters that are holographic makes this polish a bit bumpy.


MISSHA - JBR01 (Artificial lighting)

This reminds me of an other polish. Maybe I should do a comparison.
However next up is a duochrome...

Ebay Haul

Today we finally get some sunshine over here in Sweden. It was pretty
much raining all last week. And why am I not outside? It's really windy.
What better to do than work on a blogpost or two for my lovely followers.

Here I have two Polishes I bought from Ebay a while back. The brand is
MISSHA Crystal Nail Polish. However they don't have any fun names.
They are just called JBR01 and HGR01Luckily the polish is far from dull.

Stay tuned for swatches in upcoming posts.

Effie's Trinket - EOTD

Here comes the 3rd look done with a FEVERshadow. This is the last one from
the Hunger Games Trio - Effie's Trinket. Casandra was nice enough to send
me samples of the Collection for review. See the post Here. The previous EOTD
posts can be seen by clicking the names Rue's Wildflowers & District 12 Soot.

I started out with primer/base and the applied a matte skintoned eye
shadow under my brow and down into the inner corner. As the focus
here is one shadow - Effie's Trinket - I have applied it all over the upper
(and lower) lid and blended it out in the crease and beond. District 12 Soot
has been applied close to the lashline as an eyeliner. As a highlight I have
used a light shimmery eyeshadow under the highest point of my brow and
in the inner corner of my eye. I curled my lashes and applied mascara.
The makeup was applied using ELF and Sigma Beauty Makeup Brushes.

District 12 Soot - EOTD

 Here comes an other look done with a FEVERshadow. This time it is
District 12 Soot from the Hunger Games Trio. Casandra was nice enough
to send me samples of the Collection for review. And you can have a look at
that HereRue's Wildflowers - EOTD post can be viewed by Clicking Here 

 I started out with a primer and base. Applied a matte skintoned eyeshadow
under my brow and to my inner corner. Then I applied District 12 Soot all over
my lid area and into the crease. I blended the dark color using Rue's Wildflowers.
The same was done on the lower lid. As highlight under the highest point of my
brow and inner corner I used a light shimmery eyeshadow. I thightlined with a
black khol pencil and I used it on my waterline too. I curled my lashes and
applied mascara. If I wasn't out of lashglue I would have applied false lashes.
The makeup was applied using ELF and Sigma Beauty Makeup brushes.
