1 Year Blogiversary!!

KITTENS!! As you might have guessed by my obnoxious banner, it's my one year blogiversary today!

I actually thought I had a few more days until my one year blogiversary, but apparently it was today! So I'm writing this celebratory blog post more in a hurry than I had anticipated.

Anyway: yay! I did it! I have been blogging for a year! When I started this blog, I didn't really invest a lot of time in it. It was like a second place on the Internet for me, whereas my nail Tumblr came first. This has changed. Like seriously changed so so much: my blog is my favourite medium ever now. It's my home on the Internet, it's my own private place where I can write what I want and show you what I want! My Tumblr, Facebook page and all the other things have become a gateway to the blog: I post pictures and sneak previews there, but I can't really let my heart out and write enormous amounts of text like I can on this blog. And I LOVE writing enormous amounts of text :D

To celebrate, I'm going to take a trip down memory lane with you all and show you some of the biggest and most fun events that have happened with my blog the past year.

Hipster Harry Potter

Disclaimer: some items in this post have been previously received for review.

Potterheads rejoice, for your hearts will be warmed by today's design!

A few weeks ago I won a giveaway hosted by Accio Lacquer (if you are not following her already, GO! NOW!). The prize was a set of vinyl nail decals of Harry Potter by Lacquer By Lissa. I picked the colour silver because I thought it'd look great with a galaxy design - so I've had this design in mind for quite some time now! I showed you the galaxy design already here, so we'll go straight on to the decals!

Blue Galaxy Nails

As you can see from my introduction, I'm quite enthousiastic about these. This is my second attempt at galaxy nails (you can see the first one here - and here is an added bonus!) and I decided to go with the classic space colour: blue.

Dear reader, be prepared for an abundance of rainbowsssss today!!

I had the chance to swatch and review some Mod Lacquer polishes, about which I am beyond excited! Which is why you will now be overwhelmed by several hundred pictures in this post because I just couldn't pick - they all look amazing, because the two polishes I swatched just ARE amazing!

Bourjois Paris - Dangerous Wish

Bonjour! (it seemed fitting to start this post in French as the polish I'm showing you today is from Bourjois Paris)

I'm currently still settling in in the new appartment and haven't been able to do new nail art (though I'm working on a review right now, so expect that soon!), so I decided to give you a post that has been sitting in my Draft space - until now!

ILNP - Birefringence

Hello fellow polish enthusiasts! Rejoice, for I have a gorgeous polish to show you today!

I bought ILNP's Birefringence a few months ago after lusting for it for quite some time. It looked gorgeous in pictures, and especially the description made me all warm and fuzzy inside. Barbra, the owner of ILNP, says:

"I do not possess the linguistic capacity to express the “awesomeness” of this nail polish. But for you, I’ll try. Birefringence is a jaw droppingly beautiful polish that effortlessly stops people in their tracks. Planning on having a meaningful face-to-face conversation with a friend? Plan on an abrupt derailment as soon as he/she notices what your nails are up to. Remember though, it’s not their fault; you were warned! Birefringence shifts through an array of incredible blues, purples, reds, oranges, yellows, and even subtle greens!"

I HAD to have this multichrome. And now I do. And it did NOT disappoint me :D Honestly, conversations WERE derailed when people noticed my nails - Barba was not exaggerating.
I used two easy coats of Birefringence + top coat, no black polish underneath.
