Bourjois Vampire Vanity topperBourjois Vampire Vanity nadlak

The moment I saw first swatches of Bourjois Vampire Vanity topper, I was hooked. It simply had to be mine. First I looked in DM stores, but could not find this shade so I put it on my Muller shopping list and was lucky enough to catch it. :happy:

I am happy to report that this topper is as pretty on nails as it is in bottle. It does have few downsides though – base is not thick enough for gold flakes to evenly spread on the nail so I had to use two coats and tap the brush little bit so I got semblance of even application. On the other hand I prefer thiner base over thicker as this was I just 2 coats and mission accomplished versus bubbling, way to thick coats …  Base for golden flakes was Essence Moonless Night (Dark Romance LE)

Price: 7,29 EUR for 9ml (0.30 fl.oz.).

What so you think – is this not the perfect topper for December or what? :nails:

Takoj, ko sem zasledila prve swatche Bourjois Vampire Vanity laka, sem vedela, da mora obvezno biti moj. Najprej sem ga iskala v DMovih trgovinah, vndar ga nikjer nisem opazila. Na srečo, so ga v Mullerju le imeli, tako da sem končno dobila tale krasni lakec. :happy:

Z veselje poročam, da je lak tudi na nohtih tako lep kot v steklenički. Ima pa eno pomanjkljivost – osnova ni zadosti gosta, da bi se zlate krpice lepo razporedila po nohtu. Sama sem uporabila 2 plasti + občasno kakšno krpico kar s tapkanjem prerazporedila. Vendar pa imam po drugi strani raje nadlake z bolj redko bazo kot pregosto. Tako se vsaj ognem mehurčkom, predebelemu nanosu … Kot osnovo za manikuro sem uporabila Essence Moonless Night (Dark Romance LE)

S-he 008 flakie nail polishS-he 008 lak za nohte s krpicami

I would really like to tell you that S-he Stylezone 008 nail polish looks as good on nails as it does in the bottle, but sadly that is not the case.

S-he 008 flakie nail polish
S-he 008 flakie nail polish

Just look at the bottle and all those gorgeous duo-chrome flakies. Simply to drool for. Then I started to apply (I used Catrice Shopping Day At Bluemingdales as a base) first layer and only one flakie transfered onto the nail. Not to mention that formula is really weird, not even sticky but still feels like glue. Okay – so I patted the flakies onto the nail. Not a smart move as base formula is just too thick and I should have went for tweezers instead of applying them with brush.
I got this uneven mess, so I unwisely added another coat to even it little bit. Can you say bubbly bubbles manicure? Of course I made things even worse by adding another layer of top coat but I wanted to make swatch as this is probably the last time I’ll use this nail polish and as it didn’t want to dry …

In any case – it actually looks better in photograph than in reality. :silly:

She-008-flakie-nail-polish_swatch_parokeets

I wanted to like this polish but I just can’t. And I had such high hopes of getting all of the new S-he flakies. On the other hand – if you like bubbles, this could be ideal manicure for you. :silly:

Price: 2,50 EUR for 10ml.

What was your experience with S-he flakie nail polishes?

Iz dna srca sem želela sporočiti, da je S-he Stylezone 008 lak za nohte tako lep na nohtih kot je krasen v steklenički. Na mojo veliko žalost, me je lak razočaral po celi črti. Iskreno rečeno, če ne bi dobila toliko prošenj za swatch dotičnega laka, nikoli ne bi napisala posta, ker me slabe ocene prav zamorijo. :sigh:

S-he 008 flakie nail polish
S-he 008 lak za nohte

Samo poglejte si te krasne prelivajoče se krpice v steklenički. Lak za občudovati. Potem sem pa ga začela nanašati na prvi noht (za bazo sem uporabila Catrice Shopping Day At Bluemingdales). Šok št.1 – prenesla se je le ena sama krpica. :undecided: Se ne bom niti spuščala v čudaško formulo, ki se je vsaj pri meni, grozno obnašala. OK – navaden nanos očitno ne bo šel skozi. Tako da sem potem nanašala krpico po krpico na noht s čim manj baze. Slaba odločitev – pinceta bi se obnesla veliko bolje. Mehurčki so se takoj začeli veselo pojavljati, vendar pa niso zares izbruhnili dokler nisem hotela vsaj malo poravnati nanosa za kar sem uporabila drugo plast s-he laka.

In da bo stvar še hujša, se gmota nikakor ni želela posušiti, zato sem dodala še plast nadlaka. Takrat se je pa mehurčkom čisto snelo. Na fotografiji manikura izgleda celo bolje kot je bila videti v resnici. :silly:

She-008-flakie-nail-polish_swatch_parokeets

Res sem želela ljubiti tale lak + kupiti vse ostale krpice v kolekciji, vendar se jim bom sedaj raje izognila v širokem loku. Dopuščam možnost, da je bilo laku pretoplo (konec koncev imamo skoraj 30°c), da je moj defekten ali pa potrebuje le malo “razredčila”. Po drugi strani pa – če ste ljubiteljice mehurčkov, je tale S-he lak prava izbira za vas. :silly:

Cana: 2,50 EUR za 10ml.

Kakšne so vaše izkušnje z novimi S-he laki s krpicami?

Sephora by OPI – 212-SephoraSephora by OPI – 212-Sephora

Today I have a gorgeous nail polish to show you. It is 212-Sephora by Sephora by OPI. It is a dark brown almost light smokey black polish with gold and copper glitter, holographic glitter and duochrome flakes. It’s one of the most complex polishes I own. It looks amazing in the bottle. Unfortunately the complexity doesn’t show up as beautiful on the nails, but it is still gorgeous.

This is how it looks like in the bottle.

Mmm, this polish brings back wonderful memories … I bought it in LA …

Please excuse my yuck cuticles and short nails. It is very cold outside and I’ve been neglecting my cuticles (and nails and hands) which especially in combination with cold weather is never a good idea. I filed down my nails yesterday. I like my nails short but at the moment they are a bit too short even for my taste. Well, I do not have a problem with it, they just don’t look too good on photos. :)

Do you like Sephora by OPI – 212-Sephora nail polish? And how do you take care of your cuticles and hands in the winter time?

Danes imam za vas čudovit lak za nohte, ki sliši na ime 212-Sephora in je znamke Sephora by OPI. Gre za zelo temno rjav, če ne že prav zadimljeno črn odtenek, ki vsebuje zlate in bakrene bleščice, holografske bleščice in duochrome krpice. UAU! Vse to v enem laku? Da! Gre za enega najbolj kompleksnih lakov za nohte v moji zbirki. V steklenički izgleda fantastično. Žal pa se kompleksnost ne pokaže v vseh svoji lepoti tudi na nohtih, česar mu čisto nič ne zamerim.

Tako je videti v steklenički.

Prosim, oprostite moji ubogi obnohtni kožici in kratkim nohtom. Povem vam, niso sami krivi, da so takšni. :D Vsega je kriva moja lenoba. Kombinacija mrzlega vremena in pomanjkanja “maziljenja” pripelje do izsušene obnohtne kožice in posledično tudi do cepljenja nohtov. Nohte sem včeraj “v nulo” popilila. Prav nič nimam proti kratkim nohtom. Prav nasprotno. Zelo rada imam svoje kratke nohte, a sedaj so skoraj preveč kratki za fotografije. :)

Kako vam je všeč Sephora by OPI – 212-Sephora? Zanima me še, kako skrbite za svoje nohte in obnohtno kožico v zimskem času?

Glittery party nailsBleščičasta mešanica na nohtih

I decided to wear sparkly black/bronze top for one of the December dances and needed manicure to go with it.
Like most of the time, I was in a hurry but when I have an idea, I just have to make it happen. :silly: I chose Gosh Nero for base and then either sponged or applied with a brush: Essence BBC Golden Sands, The Huntsman and Golden Rose Scale Effect 05 + little bit of Coastal Scents holographic black glitter.
I wanted to finish the manicure with bronze stamping, but I had only 10 minutes left and no makeup on. :biggrin:

Glittery party nails
Glittery party nails (flakies)

I loved how sparkly and full of life this manicure looked, but couldn’t really capture the effect neither in photograph or video (this is the manicure I had on in my Christmas/New Year’s Eve/Winter manicures video).

Today I’m going bowling for the first time and I’m currently deciding whether I should just skip the nail polish. I’m guessing bowling is not nail friendly activity … or am I wrong? Nisem ravno velika ljubiteljica bleščic na oblačilih, vendar pa mi le te na kakšnem izmed plesov enostavno zapašejo … sploh pa na novoletnih/božičnih zabavah. :silly: Tokrat sem se odločila za bleščičast črno/bronast top in manikuro, ki bi se svetila vsaj pol toliko kot top.
Pri meni je že kar navada, da manikura nastaja tik pred zdajci. Težava nastane, ko imam 30 min za celotno manikuro, jaz se pa odločim za tehniko/look, ki zahteva še 1x toliko časa. Ampak seveda je idejo potrebno izpeljati … čeprav ti že voda teče v grlo. :biggrin:
Za črno podlago sem izbrala Gosh Nero, potem pa z gobico ali čopičem čez nanesla naslednje lake: Essence BBC Golden Sands, The Huntsman in Golden Rose Scale Effect 05 + majčkeno Coastal Scents črnih holo bleščic.
Prvotno sem načrtovala še bronasto konadikuro čez mešanico bleščic, vendar sem imela na voljo samo še 10 minut in nobenega makeupa na obrazu … makeup je zmagal. :angel:

Glittery party nails
Bleščičasti nohti s krpicami

Manikura mi je bila blazno všeč – lesketanje, bleščanje toliko različnih bleščic je prav neverjetno poživelo moje nohte. Na žalost ne fotoaparat, ne video kamera (manikuro sem nosila v video posnetku s predlogi božičnih/novoletnih manikur) nista uspela ujeti lepote v objektiv.

Danes grem pa prvič v življenju (I think :silly: ) na bowlanje. Kako prijazna je ta zadevščina nohtom? Razmišljam, da sploh ne bi uporabila nobenega barvnega laka, temveč le 2 plasti podlaka. :biggrin:

NOTD: Catrice – Rest In The Forest (Siberian Call LE) & confessionNOTD: Catrice – Rest In The Forest (Siberian Call LE) & izpoved

Here it is … Catrice – Rest In The Forest nail polish from the newest Limited Edition called Siberian Call. Rest In The Forest has a sheer taupe base with glass flecked shimmer. The shimmer is duochrome and changes color from pink-purple to gold. I like the taupe base because it makes the polish look a bit “dirty”. The polish is sheer. If you like sheer polishes, this one looks pretty even with only one coat. I do not mind a bit of VNL (visible nail line) on my very short nails, so I used two coats. If you have long nails and do not like VNL, you’ll need at least three coats for a decent coverage or you can layer it over a nude color.

When I look at my photos, I do not like this polish very much. :biggrin: Do I even have to say that it looks prettier in real life?!? :nails: For my warm / yellow skin tone if falls into the “nude but different” category.

My confession: I’ve been neglecting my nails and cuticles in the past few months or so. :blush: I didn’t even bother to paint them regularly. Is this a nail polish depression or just “I have other things on my mind”? A little bit of both I’d say. And to be honest I do not care. I paint my nails when I feel like doing so and I’ve come to the point where I only buy polishes that I truly like and do not buy them because I feel like I need them all. I guess, only the true addicts (or collectors) will understand what I am talking about. :biggrin:

That was my nails of the day and a short confession of what is going on with my nails. :nails: I’ll tell you a bit more about what is happening in my life and why I’ve been MIA lately in another post.

Happy polishing to everyone! :nails:

Evo ga … Catrice – Rest In The Forest lak za nohte iz zadnje omejene kolekcije, ki se imenuje Siberian Call. Rest In The Forest ima prosojno sivo-rjavo osnovo in “drobcena stekelca”, ki spreminjajo barvo iz roza-vijolične v zlato. Sivo-rjava osnova mi je všeč, saj lak naredi malo drugačen in izgleda rahlo umazano. :biggrin: Kot sem omenila, ima prosojno osnovo. Lak bo primeren za tiste, ki radi nosijo prosojne lake, saj izgleda lepo tudi samo z enim slojem. Jaz sem nanesla dva. Po dveh nanosih je na mojih kratkih nohtih še zmeraj opaziti konico nohta, kar mene osebno ne moti. Vsi, ki ne prenesete pogleda na opazno konico nohta, boste morali nanesti vsaj tri plasti ali pa lak slojiti čez bež ali sivo-rjavo podlago.

Ko tako gledam svoje fotografije, mi lak sploh ni všeč. :biggrin: Rada bi dodala, da lak izgleda lepše v živo. :nails: Pri moji topli / rumeni polti pade lak v kategorijo “nude, a drugačen”.

In še moja izpoved: Svoje nohte in obnohtno kožico sem v zadnjem času resnično zanemarjala. :blush: Sploh se nisem trudila, da bi nohte redno lakirala. Ali gre tukaj za lak depresijo ali pa se mi samo dogajajo druge reči v življenju? Rekli bi, da gre za mešanico obojega. In če sem iskrena, me sploh ne moti. Nohte lakiram, ko mi je volja in prišla sem tako daleč, da kupujem resnično samo lake, ki so mi všeč in so vredni nakupa, in ne več vsega, kar mi pride pod prste. Verjetno vsi ne boste razumeli, o čem pišem, a tisti pravi zasvojenci (oz. zbiratelji) bodo morda razumeli. :biggrin:

To so bili moji nohti dneva in kratka izpoved, kaj se trenutno dogaja z mojimi nohti. :nails: Verjetno vam bom v katerem od prihodnjih prispevkov na kratko napisala, kaj se dogaja v mojem življenju in zakaj tako redko pišem.

Srečno lakiranje! :nails:

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.

Pripravi se za velemesto! London, Pariz, New York ali Tokio – razburljiva in izjemna mesta, ki ponujajo različnost v modnem in trendnem smislu! Essence trend kolekcija “new in town” popelje vse trendseterke in fashionistke v največje prestolnice sveta – kjer ustvarjalnost ne pozna meja in se rojevajo trendi jutrišnjega dne.

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.

Essence New In Town LE

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.

Essence New In Town LE: Oh My Glitter! nail polish
Essence New In Town LE: Oh My Glitter! lak za nohte - swatch

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.

Essence New In Town LE: Grey-t To Be Here nail polish

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.

Essence New In Town LE: Ballerina's Charm nail polish

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).

Playing around with Avon stuff (NOTD & FOTD)Igračkanje z Avon zadevami (NOTD & FOTD)

Since the flu is almost completely gone and I’m feeling much better, I think I’m ready to write a little something about beauty related things again. Today Avon is on the menu. Are you excited?

If I’m not mistaken I got Avon’s Glitz & Glam make up palette for Christmas. The color selection is very nice. Purple and gold look very chic together. What I really like about this palette is that there is a blue toned and also a red toned purple in it. That way the palette is more versatile. I don’t think this palette is still available …

What I do not like that much about this palette? The eyeshadows are hard and the color payoff is not awesome. It’s OK, but not very impressive. That’s also why I haven’t even given this palette a proper chance to prove itself. Until a couple of days ago … when I tried it properly (over an eyeshadow base). And you know what? It’s better than I thought it would be. But still, the eyeshadows are too hard for my liking. Here is the make up that I’ve done using only the Glitz & Glam make up palette.

To compliment the make up I painted my nails purple using the Avon’s Violetta Sparkle nail polish, which is a dark purple polish with gold tiny flakies. I love how the dark purple and gold sparkle look. The application didn’t cause me any troubles. There are two coats shown in the photos below.

That’s it for now about Avon. As Gejba already mentioned, that we were contacted by Avon’s representative to review some of their products. So you’ll read more about Avon’s products in the future. I decided I’ll test some of their foundations. So far I only got testers to choose the proper shade for me. I took a photo of all the shades that I got …

Avon liquid foundations: Magix, Calming Effects, Extra Lasting

… and that’s all I can “say” about it at the moment. I’m still waiting for the full size products. When I get them … let the fun begin!

What do you think about the Avon’s foundations or their eyeshadows?

And one last (not make up related) photo, because I’ve been there not so long ago …

Mostar

Mostar, beautiful city in Bosnia! That’s all I have to say today.

Končno sem se skoraj popolnoma rešila gripe. Mislim, da sem ponovno pripravljena napisati nekaj malega o kozmetiki. Danes je na meniju Avon.

Če se ne motim, sem Avon’s Glitz & Glam make up paleto dobila za božič. Barvni izbor je zelo lušten. Vijolična in zlata izgledata zelo “šik” skupaj. Pri tej paleti mi je še posebej všeč, da so v paleto dali tako vijolično, ki je precej modra, kot tudi vijolično, ki vsebuje precej rdečkaste v sebi. Tako je paleta mnogo bolj univerzalno uporabna. Nisem pa prepričana, da je paleta sploh še na voljo …

Kaj pa mi pri tej paleti ni preveč všeč? Senčila so žal precej trda in niso ravno fantastično pigmantirana. Saj je OK paleta, ne pa ravno impresivna. Ravno zaradi tega palete tudi zelo dolgo sploh nisem konkretno preizkusila. Pred nekaj dnevi sem ji vseeno dala možnost, da se izkaže. In veste kaj? Je celo boljša, kot sem pričakovala. A kljub temu so senčila pretrda za moj okus. To je make up, ki sem ga ustvarila z opisano paleto senčil.

Da sem celoten videz dopolnila, sem nohte pobarvala v temno vijolično. Uporabila sem Avon – Violetta Sparkle lak za nohte, ki je temno vijoličen lak z zlatimi mini krpicami. Izredno mi je všeč kombinacija temno vijolične in svetlikajočih zlatih delčkov. Nanos je bil enostaven. Na fotografijah spodaj sta dve plasti.
