OPI – Germany Collection 2012 – Every Month Is Oktoberfest (swatch)OPI – Germany Collection 2012 – Every Month Is Oktoberfest (swatch)

Gejba showed you her OPI Germany Collection minis in her previous post and today I am going to show you my only buy from the Germany collection for Fall 2012.

Every Month Is Oktoberfest is a dark purple based polish with red shimmer. The shimmer is slightly duochrome, which is only visible in the bottle. It changes color from red to yellow (gold). On the nails the duochrome effect isn’t visible but it gives the polish dimension. It is one of those polishes that glow in the middle of the nail and the edges look really dark. Love it! It is such a nice vampy color. Perfect for fall!

This is it. I love the polish and I don’t regret buying it. From this collection I also like the neutral shades, but I don’t think I am going to buy any of them.

What are your favorites from the Germany collection?

Gejba vam je v svojem prejšnjem prispevku pokazala svoje minije iz OPI Germany kolekcije za jesen 2012, danes vam bom še jaz pokazala, kateri je mene prepričal v nakup.

Every Month Is Oktoberfest je temno vijoličen odtenek z rdečim šimrom. Šimer se v steklenički preseva iz rdeče v zlato, a efekt ni opazen na nohtih. Gre ze enega tistih odtenkov, ki v sredini nohta žarijo ob straneh pa so zelo temni. Gre za čudovit vampy odtenek, ki je fantastičen za jesen!

To je to. Every Month Is Oktoberfest me je prepričal v nakup in ni mi žal, saj ga obožujem. Iz omenjene kolekcijo so mi všeč še nevtralni odtenki, a dvomim, da bom katerega kupila.

Kaj pa so vaši favoriti iz kolekcije?

Delia Cosmetics Coral Prosilk nail polishes (swatches)Delia Cosmetics Coral Prosilk laki za nohte (swatchi)

My first Eveline Delia Cosmetics nail polishes. They are from the Coral Prosilk line.

Eveline Delia Cosmetics 88 is a sheer milky polish with beautiful silver shimmer. It is sheer but buildable. I think I will wear with two coats.

Eveline Delia Cosmetics 98 is a beautiful dark purple. I love the color. The application was easy.

I found the next two hidden in the back. Wow, pretty glitters!

Eveline Delia Cosmetics Las Vegas 500 is a mutlicolor glitter polish, with tiny multicolored square glitters and bigger hexagonal silver (holo) glitter. The glitter is dense. I only needed two coats for a good opacity.

Eveline Delia Cosmetics Las Vegas 504 is a similar thing to the 500 one, just the glitter is gold in this one. The consistency of 504 was thinner so I needed three coats for a decent opacity.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

I like them. Application was easy with all of them. They dried fast. The glitter ones have a very strong unpleasant scent. There is 10 ml in the bottle. Price: 2,64€ in Slovenia.

Have you ever tried Eveline Delia Cosmetics polishes? Which ones are your favorites?

Moji prvi Eveline Delia Cosmetics laki za nohte. Vsi so iz Coral Prosilk linije. Kupila sem jih v Nami v Ljuubljani, kjer sem prav presenečeno pogledala, ko sem zagledala popolnoma napolnjeno stojalo.

Eveline Delia Cosmetics 88 je prosojen mlečen odtenek s čudovitim srebrnim šimrom. Lak je prosojen, a se z večimi sloji doseže kar dobro prekrivnost. Mislim, da ga bom nosila z dvema plastema.

Swatch: Eveline Coral Prosilk nail enamel - 98

Eveline Delia Cosmetics 98 je krasen temno vijoličen odtenek. Obožujem barvo. Nanos je bil enostaven.

Naslednja dva sem odkrila nekje v ozadju. Vau, lepa bleščičkota!

Eveline Delia Cosmetics Las Vegas 500 vsebuje majhne večbravne štirikotne bleščice in večje šestkotne srebrne (holo) bleščice. Bleščice je v laku veliko. rabila sem le dve plasti za kar dobro prekrivnost.

Eveline Delia Cosmetics Las Vegas 504 je narejen na podobno vižo kot odtenek 500. Razlika je v tem,d a so v 504 bleščice zlate. Konsistenca laka je redkejša kot pri 500. Tako sem za zadovoljivo prekrivnost 504 potrebovala tri plasti.

PRVI VTISI

Všeč so mi. Nanos je bil enostaven pri vseh. Sušili so se hitro. Bleščičasta ima precej močan, neprijeten vonj. V steklenički je 10 ml. Cena: 2,64€.

Ste morda že preizkusili Eveline Delia Cosmetics lake? Kateri so vaši najljubši?

Glitter Gold and Yellow Limited Edition Purple Red

Alessandro Adore Me, Enjoy Me limited editions (swatches, review)Alessandro Adore Me, Enjoy Me (opis, ocena)

Polishes from Alessandro Adore Me and Enjoy Me limited editions seemed like interesting combinations, so I merged two reviews into one. :nails:

Alessandro Adore Me, Enjoy Me limited edition
Alessandro Adore Me, Enjoy Me limited edition

My first thought about Enjoy me LE was that promotional photos looked nothing like the actual nail polishes. And contrary to usual situation, nail polishes look dull on the promo photos and vibrant in reality with depth that immediately drew me in. As two of the nail polishes are glitter layering ones, I used Alessandro Adore Me shimmery ones as a base.

Alessandro Luscious Brocade from Adore Me was one of the most awaited fall shades for me. And I was not disappointed after I finally got the chance to try it out. Good coverage and easy to work with formula in rich brownish red tones. Duochrome effect is not prominent, but it does add to the depth/complexity of the polish.
My lightbox hates this kind of shades and weather was lousy so I made tones of photos to get to show you at least one passable from lightbox …

Alessandro Adore Me LE - Luscious Brocade

… and one taken is few minutes sun was shining through the clouds. 2 coats + top coat.

I upgraded it with one layer of Alessandro Enjoy Me LE – Carnival in Rio. I thought this one was very similar to Essence Gold fever, but it’s not. Carnival In Rio has a lot bigger glitter and color combination is more obvious. But the major difference is in the coverage – Carnival is loaded with glitter and as it’s bigger – you get a lot better coverage. I used one coat on the bellow photo.

Alessandro Dramatic Blossom from Adore Me LE was the next one on the list. Shade itself is colorful and elegant, but I did not like it much on me. Maybe it’s touch to cool for my skin-tone? Something bothered me in any case. Shimmer is really fine and not seen much … main role is to avoid nail polish looking flat. Application was perfect, if you have steady hand you could possibly get away with one coat as pigmentation is very good. 2 coats + top coat.

I wore this one only for few hours and then layered Brazilian Night from Enjoy Me LE over it. I was very nicely surprised with this shade. It looked meh on promo photos, even in bottle did not look like it would be stunning, but on nails … WOW. :drop: I would never ever think I would like combination of smaller cool purple glitter and larger warm colored particles, but I was blown away with this shade … and I’m thinking of buying backup. :silly: Take a look at how much coverage you get with one coat.

Last shade did not have partner for layering, but it’s pretty by itself anyway … coming from red nail polish lover describing red shade. :biggrin:
Alessandro Latin Lips from Enjoy Me LE is easy to apply, goes from slightly more warm to cooler undertone but generally speaking is true red nail polish. It has slightly jelly finish so you don’t get 100% coverage with 2 layers, but if you’re not fussy about nail line, one coat is enough.
I spiced up this shade with white dots from one of new Essence image plates.

All nail polishes dried fast, but not while still applying it. Glittery ones needed 2 coats of top coat to cover up the grittiness. I removed glitter nail polishes with foil method.

Price: ~5 EUR for 5ml (0,17 fl.oz.)

*I received items for review from Alessandro SloveniaLaki iz Alessandro Adore Me in Enjoy Me omejenih kolekcij, so se v mojih očeh tako lepo dopolnjevali, da sem združila posta. :nails:

Alessandro Adore Me, Enjoy Me limited edition
Alessandro Adore Me, Enjoy Me limited edition

Moja prva misel ob pogledu na Enjoy me LE, je bila, da promo fotografije delajo krivico lakom. Na fotografijah so odtenki namreč brez življenja, dolgočasni … medtem ko so v resnici vse prej kot kot.
Ker sta bila dva laka iz te kolekcije še najbolj primerna za slojenje, sem za bazo uporabila Alessandro Adore Me odtenka.

Alessandro Luscious Brocade iz Adore Me kolekcije je bil zame eden izmed najbolj pričakovanih jesenskih odtenkov. Bala sem se razočaranja, vendar je lak na srečo tudi v živo zelo lep. Prekrivnost je dobra, nanos enostaven, barva pa globoka rjavo-rdeča. Duochrome efekt je sicer praktično neviden na nohtih, a vseeno doda globino laku.
Moj lightbox sovraži takšne odtenke, vreme je bilo pa ravno zelo oblačno, tako da je tole edina fotografija, ki je vsaj približno realna …

Alessandro Adore Me LE - Luscious Brocade
Alessandro Adore Me LE - Luscious Brocade swatch

… in še ena čudaška, ko mi je za trenutek uspelo uloviti sončni žarek, ki je pokukal izza oblakov. 2 plasti + nadlak.

Manikuro sem nadgradila z eno plastjo Alessandro Enjoy Me LE – Carnival in Rio. Najprej sem sicer mislila, da gre za skoraj identičen odtenek kot je Essence Gold fever … ampak nisem bila niti blizu. :biggrin: Carnival in Rio ima veliko večje bleščice, barvna kombinacije je bolj izrazita … največja razlika pa je v prekrivnosti. Na spodnji fotografiji lahko vidite kako prekrivna je ena plast.

Alessandro Dramatic Blossom iz Adore Me LE je bil naslednji na vrsti. Odtenek je sicer istočasno barvit in eleganten, vendar me je nekaj zmotilo. Mogoče je rahlo prehladen zame? Šimer je izredno fin in praktično neviden. Doda dimenzijo laku, a to je tudi vse. Nanos je bil perfekten, prekrivnost dobra – ena plast je lahko že dovolj za popolno prekrivanje. 2 plasti + nadlak.

Dramatic Blossom sem nosila samo nekaj ur, potem pa ga hitro prekrila z Brazilian Night iz Enjoy Me LE. Gre za odtenek, ki me je najbolj presenetil. Na promocijskih fotografijah ni izgledal preveč navdušujoče, tudi v steklenički ne pride efekt do izraza, na nohtih pa … WOW. :drop: Nikoli se ne bi mislila, da mi bo kdaj všeč kombinacija hladno vijola manjših bleščic in večjih toplejših delcev. Lak mi je tako zelo všeč, da razmišljam o rezervni steklenički. :silly: Poglejte kakšno prekrivnost dobimo že s prvo plastjo.

Alessandro Adore Me - Dramatic Blossom

Zadnji odtenek je ostal brez partnerja, vendar je že sam po sebi krasen … reče rdečoljubka o rdečem laku za nohte. :biggrin:
Alessandro Latin Lips iz Enjoy Me LE se izredno lepo nanaša, niha med toplim in hladnim spektrom, a bi barvo še najbolj uvrstila med “pravo” rdečo. Finiš je rahlo “jelly”, tako da tudi po dveh plasteh prekrivnost ni bila 100%, če pa vas ne moti vidna konica nohtov, potem vam bo pa zadostovala že ena plast.
Dodatno sem ga okrasila z belo konadikuro narejeno z eno izmed novih Essence šablon.

Alessandro Enjoy Me LE - Latina Lips

Vsi laki so se hitro posušili, a ne prehitro, tako da je nanos bil enostaven. Bleščičasti laki potrebujejo 2 plasti nadlaka, če želimo doseči gladko površino. Verjetno ni potrebno dodati, da se bleščičasta laka v primerni svetlobi močno bleščita. Trdovratne bleščičaste manikure sem odstranila z metodo odstranjevanja s folijo.

Cena: ~5 EUR za 5ml

Essence Break Through nail polishEssence Break Through lak za nohte

We debated about Essence Break Through nail polish on few forums, blogs … and none of the opinions were favorable. It’s hard to apply, streaky, chips … As all of the new Colour&Go polishes I have tried so far worked well I was really curious what went wrong with this shade. So I bought it the first opportunity I had. :silly:

Essence Break Through bottle
Essence Break Through

You know how it is – we all have our way of applying nail polishes, so I thought I would film how I do it and then show you final result. Here is how my Break Through acted:

[youtube]http://youtu.be/7MtDl–KQGM[/youtube]

I can’t say this shade was horrible to apply or that finish looked annoyingly streaky. It’s not my favorite formula as it’s little bit to thin for that, but nothing I could not live with. What really shocked me was how different this shade looks in shade, artificial cool light and under sunlight. It was like looking at two completely different shades. :shock:
Staying power I can not yet comment on. It didn’t chip in the few hours I wore it without top coat, but I’ll have to wear it for couple of days to see how it fares on my nails. I’ll update this post as soon as I test it.
Swatch is made with 2 coats of Break Through and one layer of top coat. Photo was taken under cooler light, while detail is from the sun … see how different are the colors?

It’s not really my kind of the shade, but I was curious so I had to try it out. :nails:
Do you have Essence Break Through? What are your thoughts about this nail polish?Essence Break Through lak za nohte je bil zadnje čase veliko na tapeti. Forumi, blogi … nikjer ni dobil pozitivne ocene. Nanos je težaven in neenakomeren, kruši se … Seveda sem ga morala preizkusiti, da vidim kje se je zataknilo pri temu Colour&Go laku. :silly:

Essence Break Through bottle
Essence Break Through

Vsaka ima svoj način nanosa, drugačno debelino slojev … tako da se mi je zdelo še najbolje, če posnamem mojo izkušnjo in nato pokažem končni rezultat. Takole se je Break Through obnašal na mojih nohtih:

[youtube]http://youtu.be/7MtDl–KQGM[/youtube]

Ne morem reči, da je bil nanos grozen, končni izgled pa neenakomeren. Formula me sicer ni ekstremno navdušila, vendar pa je to bolj posledica tega, da je za moj okus malo preveč tekoča.
Kar je mene osebno še najbolj presenetilo, je barvna razlika pod hladno ali toplo svetlobo. Kot, da bi gledala dva popolnoma različna laka. :shock:
Obstojnost bom kasneje dopisala, ko bom lak nosila vsaj dan ali dva. Po nekaj urah se še ni krušil … vendar to verjetno ni ravno nepresenetljivo.
Za swatch sem uporabila 2 plasti Break Through laka in eno plast nadlaka. Fotografija je posneta pri hladnejši svetlobi, detajl pa na sončni svetlobi.

Odtenek ni meni pisan na kožo, vendar me je radovednost premagala, tako da sem ga morala kupiti takoj, ko sem imela priložnost. :nails:

Ste že preizkusile Essence Break Through? Kakšne so vaše izkušnje s tem odtenkom?

Depend 202, 228, 218, 5000 nail polish swatchesDepend 202, 228, 218, 5000 laki za nohte

You already had a chance to meet Depend nail polishes on our blog … and we own even more but they’re still on to be swatched shelf or to be publishes folder … depending on which Parokeet lady you are talking to. :silly: Majority of Depend nail polishes comes with good formula, staying power and pigmentation. The only thing that bugs me is that they are numbered and not named.

Today I have swatches of 4 of their nail polishes and if you like what you see … be sure to read the end very carefully. :biggrin:

Depend 202, 228, 218, 5000 nail polishes
Depend 202, 228, 218, 5000 nail polishes

Depend 228 and 218 have very similar formula and silver shimmer. The only real difference is the base color – 228 has blue and 218 pink one. Drying speed is optimal for me, with little bit thicker layer they can be one coater. Staying power was also good. I used 2 coats + top coat.

I applied Depend 202, wore it and swatched it, but I noticed the shimmer only after I was going through close up photos. :biggrin: 202 has thicker formula, dried little bit slower than the first two. Formula is little bit on the jelly side, but still with good pigmentation … but not great one, so I used little bit thicker coats than I normally would. In general I find application with even slightly jelly-ish nail polishes to be nerve wracking if I don’t use thicker layers. Color is purple with mainly cooler undertones, but in warm light it does get that warmer pinkish undertone.

The last nail polish I have for you is white crackle named Depend 5000. It works just like other Depend crackle nail polishes – cracks without problem, thiner layer for smaller cracks, thicker for larger ones. I applied it over Depend 218, 202 and 228.

Depend nail polishes are still minis, so no change there.

How do you like Depend nail polishes? Tried any of the treatments? I still have to take a look at that part of their stand.

GIVEAWAY is closed.

*we received items for review and giveaway from Depend SloveniaNekaj Depend lakov za nohte smo že objavile na blogu … še več pa jih ali čaka na swatchanje ali pa swatchi samevajo na računalniku … odvisno od tega s katero Parokeetko govorite. :silly: Večina Depend lakov ima dobro formulo, obstojnost ter pigmentiranost. Edina zadeva, ki me mori je to, da so laki oštevilčeni in ne poimenovani.

Danes imam za vas swatche 4ih njihovih odtenkov. In če so vam lakci všeč … ne preskočite konca posta. :biggrin:

Depend 202, 228, 218, 5000 nail polishes
Depend 202, 228, 218, 5000 nail polishes

Depend 228 in 218 imata zelo podobno formulo in srebrn šimer. Razlika je le v osnovni barvi – 228 je moder, 218 pa roza. Čas sušenja je zame optimalen, če uporabim rahlo debelejšo plast, pa sta laka prekrivna že s prvo plastjo. Obstojnost je na meni dobra. Uporabila sem 2 plasti + nadlak.

Depend 202 sem nanesla, nosila, fotografirala, a da vsebuje šimer sem opazila šele, ko sem pregledovala swatche. :biggrin: 202 ima gostejšo formulo in se malo počasneje suši. Formula je rahlo želejasta, a je še vedno OK pigmentirana. Pri vseh lakih, ki imajo takšno formulo, uporabim debelejše plasti, če ne me čisto spravijo ob živce. :cute: Vijola lak ima večino časa hladnejši podton, vendar so v določenih pogojih vidni tudi toplejši podtoni. 2 plasti + nadlak.

Zadnji lak spada v kategorijo cracklov. Gre za belega razpokančka z imanom Depend 5000. Deluje enako kot ostali Depend crackli, ki sem jih preizkusila – dobro razpoka, tanjši sloji za več manjših razpok in debelejši za večje razpoke. Nanesla sem ga čez Depend 218, 202 in 228 lake.

Deborah Purplish and Get The Nude LookDeborah Purplish in Get The Nude Look

New Deborah Pret A Porter 2012 mini nail polishes finally arrived in Slovenia. You may remember from last years collections that I loved Deborah mini nail polish collection – they have great colors, formula is OK … So it’s no wonder that I was really anxious to see 2012 shades.

This time Pret A Porter minis coincided with lots of other interesting editions, so I got only two. One nude and one purple shade.

Deborah Pret-A-Porter: Get The Nude Look (46), Purplish (66)

I’m still searching for THE nude nail polish and gave a go to Deborah’s Get The Nude Look. I saw that undertone was not perfect, but I was hoping for at least passable result … no such luck. Formula was good and so was application but the color washes my hands out. Funny thing is that this polish varies between grayish cast to the yellowish one and neither looked good on me. :sigh:

Deborah Purplish is a “must have”. Rich purple shade filled with holographic glitter in different shapes. :love: Application was fine, decent coverage after 2 coats. I hope I managed to capture the essence of this nail polish in the photo, but it had to be little blurry to achieve that.

Price: 2,40 EUR for 4,5ml.

Which of the 25 new shades is a must have for you? I would like to get few more, but am overwhelmed by all the new nail polishes surrounding me. :silly: Novi Deborah Pret A Porter 2012 laki za nohte so končno na voljo tudi pri nas. Že lani sem se navduševala novimi Deborah miniji – formula je dobra, barve krasne … tako da verjetno ni presenečenje, da sem komaj čakala, da pridejo k nam novi odtenki.

Tokrat je prihod Pret A Porter minijev sovpadel s kupom drugih zanimivih kolekcij, tako da sem kupila samo 2 odtenka.

Deborah Pret-A-Porter: Get The Nude Look (46), Purplish (66)
Deborah Pret-A-Porter: Get The Nude Look (46), Purplish (66)

Ker še vedno iščem popoln nude odtenek, je odšel z menoj Deborah’s Get The Nude Look. Jasno mi je sicer bilo, da podton ne bo perfekten, vendar sem upala na vsaj približno ujemanje s poltjo … a sem se motila. Formula je OK, nanos tudi, vendar mi odtenek spremeni roke v izprano mrtvaško bledo gmoto. Saj ne, da ima sivkast + občasno malo bolj rumenkast podton, vendar niti eden ne izgleda lepo na meni. :sigh:

Deborah Purplish je po drugi strani pristal v kategoriji “nakup obvezen”. Globoka vijola baza z obilico holografskih bleščic, ki se nahajajo v različnih oblikah. :love: Nanos neproblematičen, v dveh plasteh skoraj polno prekriven … Recimo, da mi je na spodnji fotografiji uspelo ujeti vso lepoto odtenka, vendar je posledično swatch malo “zmigan”.

Kateri izmed novih 25 odtenkov je vam najbolj všeč? Rada bi si omislila še vsaj nekaj odtenkov, vendar me množica novih lakov na tržišču že čisto bega. :silly:

Essence New In Town TE (swatches, review)Essence New In Town TE (opis, ocena)

Essence New In Town trend edition is preview of the upcoming products for this fall assortment change. I skipped mascaras, raspberry lip balm was sold out and other two did not look that interesting to me, so I bought both Stay All Day creme eyeshadows + I already had 3 Colour&Go nail polishes from this TE … we already have most of the new Colour&Go line.

Essence New In Town LE

In general I’m pretty satisfied with new Essence Colour&Go nail polishes. I like the brush, bottles are cute and nail polishes are not bad at all (remember the very first Colour&Go nail polishes … now those were really crappy). :thumb:

Essence Oh My Glitter! was the first one that I tried. Application was OK, also coverage but shrinkage with Poshe top coat was immediate and very visible. I’ll use different top coat next time I reach for this nail polish. Purple shade is more warm than cool … but Oh My Glitter! can go to the cool side also. I’m guessing it’s because it’s packaged with warmer and cooler shimmer/glitter. Removal was not super easy as Oh MY Glitter! does have lots of tiny flakes. 2 coats + top coat.

Another nail polish with flakies inside is Essence Grey-t To Be Here. They loaded gray base with lots of tiny duochrome glitter and the final look is very pleasing to the eye. I did not expect glitter to be so prominent with these two shades so I didn’t add second layer of top coat to smooth out the surface … and as you can see I definitively should have done so. 2 coats + top coat.

The last nail polish in Essence Ballerina’s Charm. This nail polish looks little bit darker on my nails than in bottle. If you look at this polish in daylight, the shade becomes lighter and cooler than in my swatch. Silver shimmer is not very noticeable but it does leave it’s mark. 2 coats + top coat.

New Essence Stay All Day creme eyeshadows were warmly welcomed in my secondary primer stash. :biggrin: I loved both shades. For Fairies with it’s light pink shade and multitude of golden shimmer which turns eyeshadow in peachy pink shade and The Magic Must Go On with gorgeous purple base and shimmer. I used thicker layer for the swatch as I would on the eyelids … so the camera would pick up actual shades. When set with powder eyeshadow makeup lasts for 8+ hours (I removed it after that but there was still no creasing).

Did any of you buy lip balms? How do you like them? They look way too frosty on the swatches. :think:Essence New In Town TE, ki jo sestavljajo proizvodi, ki bodo v jeseni na voljo v “redni” prodajo, je že pri nas.

Nebotičniški stil ali trend iz sosedstva – življenje ima svoja pravila za prava mestna dekleta!

Preskočila sem maskare, rdečkast balzam je bil razprodan (ostala dva me nista pritegnila), Stay All Day kremni senčili sta nujno morali z menoj + 3 lake iz te kolekcije sem že predhodno kupila … novi Colour&Go laki so v Mullerjih že na voljo.

Za enkrat sem zadovoljna s prenovo Essence Colour&Go linije. Čopič je ravno prav širok za natančen nanos na mojih nohtih, stekleničke so srčkane, pa tudi formula ni slaba (se še spomnite “kvalitete” čisto prvih Colour&Go lakov?). :thumb:

Essence Oh My Glitter! je bil prvi na vrsti za testiranje. Nanos in prekrivnost sta bili OK, vendar pa je Poshe nadlak bil očitno slaba izbira, ker je vidno skrčil Oh My Glitter!. Vijoličen odtenek je večino časa tople barve, vendar pa ga verjetno šimer/bleščice občasno premami na hladno stran. Odstranjevanje zaradi mini krpic ni bilo enostavno … mogoče pa bo tukaj Peel off podlak prišel prav. :silly: 2 plasti + nadlak.

V kolekciji se nahaja še en lak z mini krpicami – Essence Grey-t To Be Here. Tokrat so pri Essence uporabili sivo bazo in veliko mini duochrome krpic, ki v kombinaciji pričarata bolj zadržan, a še vedno poseben odtenek. Nekako nisem pričakovala toliko bleščic v omenjenih lakih, tako da nisem dodala druge plasti nadlaka … očitno bi bila to skoraj nuja, ker je “groba” površina zelo vidna na fotografijah. 2 plasti + nadlak.

Zadnji lak, ki ga imam iz New In Town TE, je Essence Ballerina’s Charm. Na nohtih je barva malenkost temnejša kot v steklenički. V senci pa odtenek postane malo svetlejši in bolj hladen kot na swatchu. Srebrn šimer ni zelo opazen, vendar da laku globino. 2 plasti + nadlak.

Novu Essence Stay All Day kremni senčili sta bili zelo dobrodošli v moji zbirki sekundarnih baz. :biggrin: Oba odtenka sta se mi takoj priljubila. For Fairies z nežno roza barvo z zlatim šimrom kot The Magic Must Go On s krasno vijola bazo in šimrom. Za swatch sem uporabila debelejšo plast kot sem jo nanesla na veke … drugače fotoaparat ne ujame realne barve. Fiksirala sem ju s senčilom v kamnu/prahu in dobila 8+ ur obstojen makeup (po osmih urah sem odstranila MU, ki pa je še vedno izgledal zelo sveže in ni izginil v gubo).

Ste mogoče kupila katerega izmed balzamov? So res tako frosty kot izgledajo na swatchih? :think:
