L'Oreal Infallible nail polish review (Fuschia For Life)

Hi my lovely readers!

Today I'm going to review Loreal's new nail polish from the Infallible line in color Fucshia For Life 020. I got this polish from a goodie bag (see previous post) for free, but that does not affect this review in any way.

This polish comes with two steps: the color and a topcoat

The claims of the product: "A stunning, show stopping hybrid gel-lacquer result, which defies a UV manicure" L'Oreal

Texture/Formula: 8/10
The polish was medium sheer: two coats worked ok. It took ages for the polish to dry and I definitely didn't have the patience needed to apply three coats. I smudged my left thumb three times and I had to repaint the whole nail several times...
Otherwise I really loved the formula: it was shiny and really looked like a gel manicure.

Longevity: 10/10
WOW, JUST WOW!!! This polish lasted SO well on my nails (I did apply my usual OPI base coat before the other steps). 
I usually paint my nails at least three times a week since I use my hands at work and normal nail polish wears off pretty quickly. I wore this polish for six days and it looked so good! Almost no chips at all! 
I'll definitely be buying more shades once I see this in stores! 
And the best part is: It was even easier to remove than regular nail polish! I was sure it'd be a pain to remove but no, it was super easy with just a normal nail polish remover. I'd choose a nail polish like this over a gel manicure, because of the easy removal process.

Overall: 9/10
I am in love! I will be buying more of these! 
The downsides are the drying time, the sheerness of the formula and the fact that this polish is quite small and will last only for three to five manicures. However it's drugstore so the prices aren't too bad (about 12 euros in Finland). I also loved the wide brush, it was easy to paint the nails without getting any polish on my cuticles (which you should avoid with these gel-kind of polishes).

The brush is quite wide, I really like it! 
One coat of polish
Two coats of polish
After six days of use:

I really do recommend this product! Hope you liked this review, thanks for reading!

Beauty blogger meet & what was inside the goodies bag

Hi my lovely readers!
I went to a beauty blogger meet last Saturday. The meet was hosted by Henna, and it was a celebration for her blog turning five years old! Congratulations and thanks again for the awesome meet! I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food/snacks were delicious! 
Unfortunately I forgot my camera and I don't have any pictures from the meet ;__;  Sorry! :(

We all received AMAZING goodie bags! I wanted to show all the products to you guys, because then you can tell me if you want to see reviews of any of these products :) I also want transparency: I want you to know that I got these items for free and it doesn't affect my opinion in any way. 

How cute were the name tags in the goodie bags? :)

I'm really excited to try out some products from Urtekram! Especially I'm looking forward to trying the deodorant and hand cream!

Some awesome-looking Louis Widmer products!

Nail polish and brow gel from Loreal, eyeshadows from Maybelline. 
We also got  a Konjac Sponge (whii, excited to try it out!) and Compeed plasters which are my go to plasters, I love them!

A foot-care set from Freeman. This will be useful during winter!

A shower gel, in-shower body cream and a body cream from Lemon Juice & Glycerine.

I'm SO happy we got socks and stockings from Falke! I have never tried the brand before, but my good friend has recommended Falke for me. We also got a stylish necklace from Glitter :) #purkkimafia

Some Lush goodies and self-tanners from Avon.

Makeup from Elf, Yves Rocher and Artdeco, hair products from Goldwell.

Yay! Biozell Seawater spray and Crystal mist - these I already tried and these two ROCK! The hair powder I haven't tried out yet :)

These items will keep my skin moisturized! 

And finally, a beach spray and cream mousse from Four Reasons and a body lotion from ACO.

Thanks again to:

And thanks for reading! Next up will be a review of the Loreal nail polish seen in this post.

OPI Haul

Hi my lovely readers!

Recently I bought some beautiful OPI nail polishes from a cosmetologist trade show. Here are the polishes, please request a review if you'd like to know what I think of any of these polishes! :)

This polish is from the Nordic collection and it's called "My dogsled is a hybrid". It's a pretty minty color with a bit more blue in it.

This pretty purple called "Do you have this color in Stock-holm?" is also from the Nordic collection, and I just love it. I already used it and it was perfect with two coats. 

Next up is "Life gave me lemons" from the OPI Neons collection. This is such a cute citrus color, will be perfect for spring and summer.

Also from the Neons collection,  we have this radiant purple (ehh, not really showing up in this picture) named "Push & Pur-pull".

This magical duochrome is the oh-so-popular "Green on the runway" from the Coca Cola -collection. This color is inspired by Sprite, which happens to be my favorite soda.

Last but not least we have "Coca Cola red". What can I say, this goes perfectly with a bottle of coke!

Here are all the beauties with flash :) Ahh I just love them! <3
