Guest Post #7: Raquel from 9ml Universe

Guest post time!  Today we have a lovely sparkly mani from the lovely Raquel from the lovely 9ml Universe!  Take it away, Raquel.
Hi everyone! 
My name is Raquel and today I'll be showing you a brand that I doubt any of you has heard about, it's a spanish brand called Yes Love. I don't own many polishes from this brand, just 2 I think, but the ones I do own are quite awesome! At first, I wasn't really sure if they were any good. Here in Portugal they're only sold in chinese stores and only cost 1€, so that made me think they would be crappy, but everyone on the portuguese Facebook groups I'm in, only had nice things to say about them. I decided to give them a try and found this gorgeous colour one day on my way home. I have a soft spot for purple polishes! 
Ok, moving on to the polish itself. This is Yes Love #N06 and it's purple with some gold micro glitter in it.  It had a really nice formula, not too thick or runny, and 2 coats were enough to get perfect coverage. Can't really talk about drying time though, I always use Seche Vite after doing my nails. 
If anyone here follows my blog, you know that my thing is my accent nail! I always try to do something different on my ring finger. This time wasn't any different, but I wanted it to have a little bit of Laura's thing too, and that left me no other choice than glitter!! xD I always love her glittery manicures and admire her patience do to that on all of her nails.
So here you have it, a purple manicure with handplaced purple (sometimes green-ish or blue-ish) glitter on my accent nail.

I  hope you all liked this manicure, I was a bit lost and didn't know what to do for this post and I'd also like to thank Laura for the possibility to write a guest post for her fantastic blog. 

Thanks so much Raquel, you did amazingly!  I always love what other people do with hand-place glitter :D


  1. It's a very interesting design, love it!

  2. This looks lovely, I would like to think that is what dragon scales would look like :D

  3. Thank you for the opportunity, Laura! ^^

  4. Hi Laura! Amazing guest post with Raquel! I am also a Portuguese girl and I do too own a lot of Yes Love and their price quality relation is great. There are lots of colors, finishes and glitters to chose from! I really loved the one that Raquel chose to show yous! And the accent nail.. well.. perfect!!
    Congrats to you both!

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night.  My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off.  I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried.  I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats.  Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner.  It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today.  Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage.  That's ok, glitter dries fast.  It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix.  The Verdict:  Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on
