I Accept!

I accept.... wait for it.... the challenge! =D

Challenge #1: Ivana asked me to do a comparison between Barry M Cobalt Blue and H&M Blue My Mind. LA Girl Deejay and Pure Ice French Kiss wanted to join the party - here they are all lined up.


They look quite similar on this photo, but aren't IRL. Here are the color drops:


Again: they look quite similar... But the most important thing - there aren't any dupes. The weather is gloomy, so these Crappy swatches will have to do. When there's time and sunshine, I'll paint them on my nails and post a photo, OK? Ivana, as you can see H&M and Barry M aren't even close. =)


Challenge #2: Rebecca asked: ''That flower is gorgeous, I wonder if there's a nail polish that colour...'' She was talking about this flower:


There is a nail polish of this color. There is indeed and it's called China Glaze Sun Worshiper! You could also mix a yellow and an orange, but I'm not doing that. ;)


China Glaze, Sun Worshiper


Bonus: I'm getting fat in style. Gourmet Balsamico potato chips - those are the Swedish words for 'Potato chips with balsamic vinegar'. See how I made a Lemony Snicket reference right there? I rock so hard! XD


Thanks for looking!

  3. Thank you so much Nihrida, you’re such a sweetheart. I was hoping that Cobalt blue is more similar to Blue my mind, because it would be so much easier to buy it as Blue my mind. :( Ajajaj. Anyway, thank you again. :* I love reading your blog! :)

  6. @Helena: Vem, ampak že doooooolgo nisem čipsa jedla. Nisem neka huda fenica... So mi smokiji bolj všeč, pa sem jih pozabila kupit.

    @*S*: Ja no, če pa čips tko fensi izgleda. =)

    @Ivana: You're welcome! Well, you can still get Cobalt Blue and hopefully you'll get your hands on Blue my Mind too someday. =) And thanks!

    @amusedPolish: The labels are in german because I bought it at a German store - Hofer (or Aldi, whatever rings a bell). =)

    @feline: Hmmm...there's something I didn't want to know. XD But yes, Barry M is gorgeous.

  17. Those potato chips sound delicious. I love balsamic vinegar. I've had chips with rosemary and olive oil. They're delicious. I've never seen Sun worshipper. Love it. The blues are all pretty shades.
