Frost Green Pearl Sheer Shimmer

NOTD: Icing – PeacockNOTD: Icing – Peacock

While cleaning the flat and reorganizing my stash, I came across all the beautiful polishes I bought in the States. Memories memories … :love: Because my nails were in desperate need of a new manicure I decided to paint my nails with a beautiful and interesting polish (bought in America of course). It’s called Peacock and it’s by Icing. It’s green with purple sheen. I don’t have anything like it in my stash and that already makes it special. The polish is quite sheer. After three coats it’s still not completely opaque. I was satisfied after three coats, but my nails are very short (especially after cleaning the flat the whole weekend). If you have longer nails, you’d definitely need at least four coats. In that case I suggest layering is a better idea, right?

That’s my nails of the day. Do you like the Peacock on my nails? And I’m curious … what is on your nails right now?

Med pospravljanjem stanovanja in preurejanjem svoje zbirke lakov, so mi pod roke prišli vsi tisti čudoviti laki, ki sem jih kupila v Ameriki. Spomini spomini … :love: In ker so moji nohti nujno potrebovali sveže manikure, sem se odločila, da jih pobarvam s čudovitim in zelo zanimivim lakom (seveda iz Amerike). Lak se imenuje Peacock in je znamke Icing. Zelenko z vijoličnim odsevom/sijajem. V moji zbirki mu ni podobnega, kar ga že takoj naredi posebnega. Lak je precej prosojen. Po treh plasteh še zmeraj ni bil popolnoma prekriven. Na mojih (trenutno) zelo kratkih nohtih so bile tri plasti sicer kar dovolj, a če imate daljše nohte, bi verjetno potrebovali vsaj štiri plasti za popolno prekrivanje. Potem je že bolje slojiti, kajne?

It’s green with purple sheen. I don’t have anything like it in my stash and that already makes it special. The polish is quite sheer. After three coats it’s still not completely opaque.

Essence: In Style + Crack Me! SilverEssence: In Style + Crack Me! Silver

Catrice stands are still not available in our capital, so I consoled myself with few new Essence nail polishes. :cute:

The shade that immediately ought my eye was Essence In Style. It looks like blue-green-purple duochrome in the bottle, but purple pretty much vanished when I applied it onto the nails. But it’s still pretty color. Brush strokes are a little bit annoying, but I can live with them as they’re not that visible. I used 2 coats + top coat.

The other nail polish that I bough is Crack Me! Silver. I used normal layers and got subtle cracks. I tried applying only thin layer on one finger (not shown in the photo), but didn’t really like the effect – cracks were more chunky, but tended to appear mostly in vertical line. I’ll stick with the subtle crackle finish. :silly: This shade is not very photogenic – imagine cracked foil finish with a nice shine to it.

I didn’t buy lots of new Essence polishes as I’m saving myself for trend editions and Catrice polishes. Are there any of the new shades that are absolutely most have? So I know what to check out next time I’m in the store. :biggrin:V Ljubljani še kar nimamo Catrice stojal, tako da sem se potolažila z dvema novima Essence lakcema. :cute:

Odtenek, ki mi je najprej padel v oči nosi ime Essence In Style. V steklenički je izgledal kot zeleno-modro-vijoličen duochrom, vendar pa se je vijolična barva bolj kot ne izgubila, ko sem ga nanesla na nohte. Sledi čopiča so sicer vidne, vendar niso tako očitne, da bi me to res zmotilo. Uporabila sem 2 plasti + nadlak.

Poleg In Style sem kupila še Crack Me! Silver. Začela sem s precej “normalnimi” plastmi in dobila subtilen crackle efekt. Na enem nohtu sem preizkusila tudi zelo tanek nanos (ni prikazan na fotografiji), a mi debelejše vertikalne razpoke niso bile preveč všeč. Mislim, da bom ostala pri subtilnem efektu. :silly: Lak ni preveč fotogeničen – v resnici gre za razpokan metalik finiš, tako da se lak v živo precej sveti.

Nisem kupila veliko novih Essence odtenkov, ker se “šparam” za prihajajoče omejene kolekcije in Catrice lake. Je kakšen izmed novih Essence odtenkov, ki se vam zdi obvezna oprema? Da vidim, če moram naslednjič malo bolj pregledati stojalo. :biggrin:

My Illamasqua nail polishes (quick overview with swatches and video)Moji laki od Illamasqua-e (hiter pregled s swatchi in videom)

Since there’s a nice summer sale on Illamasqua’s web page, I thought I’d do a quick overview over the Illamasqua‘s products that I own. I don’t have a lot of them, since they are expensive. Some of the products were sent to me for review purposes in the past and some I bought myself. This is a bunch of products ready to be swatched.

Illamasqua
Illamasqua

I’ll start with the nail polishes. Here’s a video that shows all of my nail polishes by Illamasqua: Bacterium, Hectic, Milf, Raindrops, Nudge, Baptiste, Phallic.

My thoughts on Illamasqua’s polishes:
The bottles of the polishes are square, which I love. The cap is glossy black, which is nice to look at, but not pretty when there’s tons of finger prints on it. :hmm: The caps are detachable, which is a huge plus, as it’s hard to paint your nails with a square handle. The color range is nice. The polishes dry pretty fast. The wear for me is nothing spectacular. The same as with other good quality polishes. The price is as with all the other Illamasqua products quite high. Are they worth it? Well, that’s up to you. If you like the color, if you have the money, if you like Illamasqua’s bottles … I got some of them for review purposes and some I bought myself. Would I buy them again? I guess yes. I like the colors that I bought and some of the polishes have a special story behind it … No regrets there. ;)

My favourites:
Raindrops – although it’s pretty sheer I still LOVE it! I love the beautiful tiny silver flecks of shimmer in it.
Hectic – my first creme olive green. Although I was a bit disappointed at first, because it’s watery and needs three coats for ful coverage, I still LOVE it!
Milf – no disappointment there. Love the color and the name is bold. I like the whole package.

My today’s manicure is the mixture of Baptiste and Phallic nail polishes. I applied two coats of each. The application was easy. The polishes are well pigmented and they dry pretty fats. These two polishes look spectacular in the bottles. Phallic has wonderful sparkly shimmer, which gets lost when the polish is dry and the polish looks kinda flat. The shimmer sparkles only when it’s in full sun. Baptiste looks like an awesome duochrome in the bottle. It looks mesmerizing in the bottle, unfortunately it looks just dark purple on the nails. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a wonderful deep purple, but not a duochrome.

Ker je na spletni strani znamke Illamasqua super poletna razprodaja, sem se odločila, da naredim rkatek pregled čez izdelke znamke Illamasqua, ki jih premorem. Morda pa moje besede, fotografije, swatchi, video komu pomaga pri nakupu. Nimam ravno ogromno njihovih izdelkov, ker so kar dragi. Nekaj izdlekov sem dobila v review v preteklosti, nekaj pa sem jih kupila sama. To je kup, ki čaka, da ga poswatcham.

Illamasqua
Illamasqua

Začela bom z laki zanohte. Spodaj je priložen video, ki prikazuje vse moje lake od Illamasqua.e:Bacterium, Hectic, Milf, Raindrops, Nudge, Baptiste, Phallic.

Moje mnenje o lakih:
Stekleničke so oglate, kar mi je izredno všeč. Pokrovčki so črni s sijajem, kar je zelo lepo za pogledat, a izredno grdo, ko je na njih polno prstnih odtisov. :hmm: Pokrovčki so snemljivi, kar je ogromen plus, saj je z velikim kvadratastim ročajem težje lepo nanesti lak. Izbor odtenkov je dober. Laki se kar hitro sušijo. Obstojnost ni spektakularna. Podobna kot pri ostalih lakih dobre kvalitete (OPI, Essie …). Cena je kot pri vseh ostalih izdelkih te znamke visoka. Ali so vredni toliko denarja? To je pa čisto odvisno od vas samih. Če vam je kakšen odtenek zelo všeč, če imate denar, če so vam všeč njihove stekleničke … Kvaliteta res ni slaba. Odločitev pa vaša. Smaa sem nekaj lakov dobila v oceno, nekaj pa sem jih kupila sama. Bi jih kupila še 1x? Mislim, da ja. Odtenki so mi všeč in nekateri laki zbudijo kar nekaj spominov … V glavnem … nakupa ne obžalujem. ;)

Moji favoriti:
Raindrops – čeprav je precej prosojen, ga vseeno obožujem! Drobni srebni delci (mini krpice) so tisto, kar ga naredijo posebnega.
Hectic – bil je moj prvi takšen odtenek. Čeprav sem bila najprej razočarana nad nanosom in konsistenco, ki je precej vodena. Lak rabi tri nanose za popolno prekrivnost, ga kljub temu obožujem.
Milf – nobenega razočaranja tukaj. Všeč mi je tako barva kot tudi drzno ime. Celoten paket je super.

Moja današnja manikura je mešanica odtenkov Baptiste in Phallic. Nanesla sem po dve plasti. Nanos je bil enostaven. Oba sta dobro pigmentirana. Sušita se hitro. Oba izgledata spektakularno v stekleničkah. Phallic je v steklenički čudovit moder odtenek s polno svetlikajočega šimra. Žal pa na nohtih lak izgleda precej mrtev. Leksetajoči šimer se kar izgubi in se prikaže samo na močnem soncu. Baptiste je steklenički čudovit duochrome, žal pa na nohtu pride le temno vijoličen. Ne me razumeti narobe, barva je čudovita globoka vijolična, a ne duochrome.

Black and gray Blue Brushes - Eyes Creme Eyeliners Eyeshadows Frost Limited Edition Lipstick Red Shimmer Silver and white Swatches/Bottles

Review and swatches: Essence – 50’s Girls ReloadedOpis in ocena: Essence – 50’s Girls Reloaded

Essence – 50’s Girls Reloaded. New trend edition, new review. Here we go.

Essence - 50's Girls Reloaded
Essence – 50’s Girls Reloaded

I was curious how the eyeshadow brush is going to be. I didn’t expect much and I think I didn’t get much either. First off, the brush is soft and it’s not dense. When I washed it, it shedded a bit too much for my liking. When I used it to do my make up, it lost another hair. We’ll see how it’ll hold in the future. Next thing is the performance “on the field”. I tried to do a make up with it and it was almost impossible to do a nice make up just with this brush. I noticed that it’s almost useless for applying eyeshadows (it’s OK for applying eyeshadow all over your lids), but it’s very good for blending, because it’s fluffy. It’s soft, but it’s not dense. The hair is pretty long. I’ll say perfect for blending and applying highlighter eyeshadow.

There are two shades of lipsticks in the collection.

  • Back To The 50’s is a nice creme (no shimmer) red lipstick . The texture is creamy. The color on me is tomato red. It’s nicely pigmented and the application is easy. I’d say that with this one you’ll need a lip pencil to line the lips.
  • I’m Sailing is a nice light orange-y shade . Maybe it’s even light salmon shade. The texture is the same as with the red one and it also doesn’t contain shimmer. Though it’s a bit less pigmented than the red lipstick from the collection. It’s a nice everyday lipstick.

There are three eye pencils in the collection. All of them have shimmer (not glitter). These are nice, but a bit to hard for my taste. I’d love them if they were softer.

  • Love Me Tender is a nice olive to old gold shade.
  • I’m A Marine Girl is a dark blue.
  • You’re A Heartbreaker is grey with blue undertones.

There’s a translucent loose powder (for a flawless, matt finish) in the collection as well. I tried it on my face and I liked it. It has silky finish and it didn’t dry out my face too much. It has a soft pleasant (maybe powdery) scent. I like it.

Five nail polishes. I think it’s the first time I’ve seen 15ml bottles by Essence!!!

  • Ahoy! is a creme white. I had to trim my brush. Otherwise I think it’s a nice white.
  • Back To The 50’s is a creme (cherry) red.
  • I’m A Marine Girl is a dark shimmer blue.
  • Love Me Tender is a frosty champagne with a bit of pewter to it.
  • You’re A Heartbreaker is a grey shade with tinny multicolored (silver, blue, green) shimmer.

I also prepared a short video of every product that I bought. There’s a better view of the brush and translucent loose powder as well swatches of the eye pencils and lipsticks. At the end there’s also a nice view of the nail polishes. I hope you’ll enjoy “the view”. :biggrin:

My conclusion: The brush is OK for blending, not for applying eyeshadow. Lipstick are nice. One is great everyday shade and another classic red. And no shimmer. Thumbs up. Eye pencils are too hard. Nice colors though. Translucent loose powder is a very good powder. I recommend it. Nail polishes are nice and a huge plus are the big bottles!!!


Gejba bought the eyeshadows and here are her swatches and her thoughts on them.


Essence 50's Girls Reloaded - eyeshadows by Parokeets
Essence 50’s Girls Reloaded – eyeshadows

Swatches are made over the eyeshadow base – I used two different bases for the darkes part of the duo.

01 I’m A Marine Girl: This is duo that I like the least from 50’s Girls Reloaded LE. Lighter shade comes in nice beige color, but is too shimmery for me. The biggest shimmer is limited only on the upper layer of the eyeshadow, so I’ll probably use it once in a while. Blue shade is blurple at best. It looks almost warm purple on KIKO eyeshadow base, while Rival de Loop Young brings out the cooler toned purple.

02 You’re A Heartbreaker: I liked the gray part of this duo. It’s finely milled and has slight blue undertone to it. The white eyeshadow is way too shimmery for my taste.

03 Come On Board Captain!: gray-green-beige eyeshadow was the main reason I stopped in front of the 50’s Girls Reloaded stand (that and I had to check out lightest lipstick :silly: ). Very useful shade for me + it isn’t very shimmery. Darkest eyeshadow looks like mix of black-blue base and blue shimmer. KIKO base does nothing for this eyeshadow while Rival de Loop Young brings out the shimmer to the front.

Essence – 50’s Girls Reloaded. Nova omejena izdaja, nov review. Pa začnimo.

Essence - 50's Girls Reloaded
Essence - 50's Girls Reloaded

Zelo me je zanimalo, kakšen bo čopič za nanos senčil. Pričakovala nisem veliko, dobila pa prav tako nisem veliko. Vsaj tako se mi dozdeva. Najprej, čopič (oziroma dlake) je puhast, kar pomeni, da je mehek, a dlake niso goste. Ko sem ga oprala, je spustil nekaj dlak. Za moj okus oz. moje pojme, je spustil preveč dlak. Nato je spustil še kakšno dlako, ko sem ga uporabila za nanos senčila. Zanima me, kako bo v prihodnje. Zna se zgoditi, da čopiči na začetku spustijo nekaj dlak, nato pa nobene več. Bomo videli. Naslednje je, obnašanje “na terenu”, torej pri nanosu senčil. S čopičem sem poskušala narediti celotem make up, a sem se preveč mučila na nekje na poti obupala in pograbila svoje čopiče. Enostavno je čopič preveč puhast (fluffy) in ga je skoraj nemogoče kontrolirati, ko prideš do natančnih linij ipd. Meni osebno se zdi čopič neuporaben za nanos senčila (dober je, če želite nanesti senčilo čez celo veko, za kaj bolj natančnega je pa že neuporaben), je pa super za blendanje in nanos osvetljevalca na veko oz. pod obrvi.

Essence - 50's Girls Reloaded: eyeshadow brush and translucent loose powder

V kolekciji sta dve rdečili za ustnice.

  • Back To The 50’s je lepa klasična rdeča brez šimra. Tekstura je kremasta. Šminka je lepo mazljiva. Nanos enostaven. Rekla bi, da je s to šminko zelo priporočljivo uporabiti svinčnik za obrobo ustnic.
  • I’m Sailing je lepa nežna svetlo oranžkasta šminka. Morda bi jo lahko opisala kot svetlo barvo lososa. Tekstura je podobna rdeči. Prav tako je brez šimra. Tale je manj pigmentirana kot rdeča. Zelo uporabna vsakodnevna šminka.

V kolekciji so trije svinčniki za oči. Vsi vsebujejo šimer (ni bleščic). So luštni, a zame pretrdi. Veliko bolj bi mi bili všeč, če bi bili mehkejši.

  • Love Me Tender je olivne barve s “primesmi” barve staranega zlata.
  • I’m A Marine Girl je temno modre barve.
  • You’re A Heartbreaker je siva z modrim podtonom.

Ahoy! prosojen puder v prahu (za lep mat videz). Včeraj sem ga preizkusila na obrazu. Naredi dejansko lep svilen finiš. Kožo dejansko zmatira, nisem pa imela občutka, da bi izsuševal ali da bi mi obraz po nanosu zategovalo. Ima nežen in prijeten vonj. Všeč mi je!

Pet lakov za nohte. Mislim, da se je tokrat prvič zgodilo, da vidimo 15ml stekleničke od Essence!!!

  • Ahoy! je kerm bel lak. Moj čopič je potreboval frizerja. Sicer pa dober bel lak.
  • Back To The 50’s je krem (češnjevo) rdeča.
  • I’m A Marine Girl je šimrast temno moder lak.
  • Love Me Tender je frosti lak barve šampanjca (in malo kositrnega pridiha).
  • You’re A Heartbreaker je siv lak z drobnim šimrom raznih barv (srebrn, moder, zelen).

Za vas sem prav tako pripravila kratek film o vseh izdelkih, ki sem jih kupila. V videu se bolje vidi, kakšen je čopič in kakšen je puder v prahu. Prav tako so v videu narejeni swatchi svinčnikov za oči in šmink. Na koncu pa še lep pogled na lake za nohte. Upam, da boste v “razgledu” uživali. :biggrin:

Moj zaključek: Čopič je OK za blendanju (zabrisanje prehodov). Šminki sta luštni. Ena super vsakodnevna, druga klasična rdeča. In brez šimra. Svinčniki za oči so pretrdi. Prosojen puder v prahu mi je zelo všeč. Priporočam. Laki za nohte so mi všeč. Velik plus so velike stekleničke!!!


Gejba je kupila vsa senčila. Sledijo njene fotografije in misli …

Swatchi so narejeni čez bazo. Za temnejši del dueta sem uporabila 2 različni bazi.

01 I’m A Marine Girl: je mogoče duo, ki me je še najmanj navdušil. Svetlejša senčka je sicer lepe bežkaste barve, vendar je preveč šimrasta za moj okus. Večji šimer je samo površinska zadeva, tako da je senčka še vedno uporabna. Od pričakovane modre je ostalo bore malo – modro-vijola bi bil bolj pravilen opis tega senčila. Čez KIKO bazo je prišla senčka ven skoraj toplo vijola, medtem ko je Rival De Loop Young potegnila na plan več modre.

02 You’re A Heartbreaker: senčko sem v bistvu kupila le zaradi sive senčke. Všeč mi je bila struktura, ki je skoraj perlasta ter siva barva, ki rahlo povleče na modro. Bela polovica je čisto preveč šimrasta zame.

03 Come On Board Captain!: sivo-zelenkasto-bež svetlejša polovica je bila prvotni razlog, da sem se sploh ustavila pri 50’s Girls Reloaded stojalu (poleg svetlejše šminke :silly: ). Krasen odtenek in struktura, ki sem jo enostavno morala imeti. Temnejša senčka izgleda kot črno-modra baza z modrim šimrom. KIKO baza ni uspela poudariti šimra, je pa to uspelo Rival de Loop bazi.

Purple shades of Deborah Pret A Porter CollectionVijolični odtenki iz Deborah Pret A Porter Collection

Even thou Gejba already mentioned Deborah Pret A Porter Collection in her post and movie, I had to show you swatches of my favorite Pret A Porter polishes one more time… I’m talking about purple ones of course. :love:

Lilac Seduction no.32 had biggest potential. It reminded me a lot of old She 375. I used 3 thin layers. I was not sure how to describe this finish, so Gejba suggested frost/pearl one. :rose:

Iris Bon Bon no. 33 – simple lilac creme shade, two layers.

It’s probably no huge surprise that I have many violet flowers in my garden. Here is one of them. :wub:

“Purple” greeting! :wave:Kljub temu, da jih je Gejba že omenjala v svojem postu in v filmčku, ne morem mimo tega, da vijoličnih odtenkov ne bi posebej opisala. Seveda, vijolična barva mi je pisana na kožo.  :love:

Največ potenciala v sebi skriva Lilac Seduction št.32. Zelo me spominja na starega She 375, ki je še bolj lila barve in bolj prosojen kot Deborah. Uporabila sem tri tanke sloje. Gejba  :rose: mi je pomagala pri opisu finiša. Da, gre za frost/pearl finiš.   :love:

Preprost lila krem odtenek je Iris Bon Bon št. 33, dva sloja.

Slednji vijolični odtenek je ’70 Grape Sweater št.34, najtemnejši, prav tako krem, dva sloja.

V ponedeljek v Mullerju v Btc-ju teh lakov ni bilo več. :silly:

Se ve, da pri nas doma ne manjka niti vijoličnih rožic, samo ena med njimi je lobelija. :wub:

Flormar Plus Quartz 060Flormar Plus Quartz 060

Quick post with ancient photos. Good thing that I write down my observations immediately … otherwise I’m not sure what would I remember about polish I wore a year ago. :biggrin:

Flormar Plus Quartz 060 was not very memorable polish for me – coolish violet color, streaky … I used 2 coats and added the third one on my middle finger. With every extra layer colors becomes deeper and more on the violet side (you start with pinkish violet color).

How do you like Flormar Plus Quartz 060?Hiter post s prastarimi fotografijami. Še dobro, da si tako zapišem moje vtise, število slojev itd., če ne bi se bore malo spomnila o swatchu narejenem pred več kot enim letom. :biggrin:

Flormar Plus Quartz 060 mi ni ostal v prijetnem spominu – hladno vijoličasta barva, progast nanos … Uporabila sem 2 sloja, na sredincu pa sem nanesla še tretjo plast. Več plasti kot dodamo, bolj je barva globoka in postaja vedno bolj hladno vijolična (začnemo z roza vijola nianso).

I just bought two gorgeous polishes and I simply had to show them to you right away. :w00t:

Barry M: Instant Nail Effect – Blue Print + Lavender Blue

Lavender Blue was easy to apply – I used 2 thin layers. Even though this is frost finish polish, there were no steaks. This is lavenders colored polish – more gray than blue or violet. I layered it with Instant Nail Effect Blue Print – blue crackle polish.

I love this combo. :stars:

And as we’re already talking about lavender … fantastic plant with gorgeous smell. Simply divine. :wub:

Lavender Blue sem popolnoma brez problema nanesla v dveh tankih plasteh. Ne glede na to, da gre za frost finiš, se niso poznale proge. Lak je v barvi sivke, bolj siv kot moder ali vijoličen. Čezenj sem nanesla Blue Print – moder crackle lak.

Končni izgled mi je izredno všeč.  :stars:

Ker je bilo govora o sivki…čudovita rastlina in njen krasen vonj. Preprosto božanska je. :wub:
