Review of Manic Panic Nail Varnish

Today, I will review 3 nail varnish products made by Manic Panic. The names are:

  • Manic Panic Claw Colour Electric Lava
  • Manic Panic Claw Colour Electric Banana
  • Manic Panic Hardcore Nail Polish Top Coat

The top two colours, are not usually colours I would wear, but they were on sale and I thought it would be fun to try something new, and so bright in colour. Since I mostly wear black clothes, this would add some contrast.

20150522_201624Although I have bought these a while ago, I have not used them too frequently. The colours are shockingly bright and so I allow a couple of weeks before I use them again. The top coat however, I’ve used multiple of times as it’s good. You can tell that I’ve used it more often as it print on the nail varnish is wearing off.

I think that the colours are gorgeous, it covers the nail easily as it is not watery, but actually creamy. I prefer to put two layers when I use these, especially the yellow nail polish, but if you want a more subtle shade, stick with one layer.

I would recommend getting these colours, and if I had to buy them again I would.

Throwing Shade; A sensual music video

Have you seen the sexy video coming from Honeytrap featuring Emily Bee?

I was very sceptic to watch this, as I thought it will as always be objectifying women, or men in order to get tons of views and become popular.

To my surprise, the video is very sensual; focusing on the colour red.. which is the colour of love, passion, sensitivity, lust and anger. It is a colour that stimulates people, increases blood pressure and has high visibility. Red is courageous and also it evokes erotic feelings; red lips, red nails, red light district…. The Lady in Red. This video takes advantage of the colour, and it energises us to watch, and listen… and to stay alert!

The play with the colours, the fruits and the honey, is what drew me in… how simplicity can still be so sensual. We almost forget this, in a life so fast, when people are so upfront on what they want. Nakedness is not always a turn-on. I for one, love the teasing and playfulness more. The sexual connotations in this music video is also enhanced by the lyrics of the song.

See for yourself…

Nail-Polish Mantra

I love nail polish. It is such a shame that we do not know who invented it per se.

This is what the internet told me: Nail polish was invented by the Chinese in about 3000 B.C. It was made from a mixture of Arabic gum, egg whites, gelatin and beeswax. It is unknown who the first person was to invent nail polish, but it was used by the ancient Chinese and ancient Egyptians. Chinese royalty often used gold and silver nail polish.

Well, may I say… thank you Chinese peeps, what a great discovery, which we are still using after all these thousands of years!

This weekend I purchased four more colours to add to my collection… All from Rimmel. I will review the colours in due time:

What brands do you prefer? I always struggle when it comes to brands. Some brands who I’ve never heard of, have really long lasting colours, others chip immediately. One colour from another of the same brands, sometimes behaves differently too. It’s a mystery I tell you!

Cashiers who can’t count

In Siggiewi, we do not have big supermarkets, so usually I drive to the place where I grew up for some serious grocery shopping.

After I chose my items, I went to the cash area to pay for my items. Continue reading Cashiers who can’t count
