I’ve bought the lighter “brushed metal effect” polish by Catrice. And it’s a wonderful beige with gold shimmer. The brushed metal means it’s grainy, so the finish is like the beach sand. I spruced it up with the Glorious Aquarius glitter topper by Essence. I hesitated with buying this glitter since I have so many already, but it is gorgeous. It’s mainly teal and some gold hex glitter, with tiny holo glitter mixed in. I love it.
This is an example of… “how did that happen?” … I sometimes experience with seemingly boring polishes. This is an Essence Colour and Change polish, which changes color when you apply any clear-ish polish. The change makes the color very … Continue reading →
Today’s manicure is an interesting polish by Catrice – 900 Steel My Heart which is a polish with “brushed metal effect” which basically means it dries a little bit gritty and matte. I like the finish, but since I’m worried … Continue reading →
Hi guys, this colour combination is one of my favourite – teal and brown/bronze. I used a frosty vibrant shade of teal and a gorgeous warm brown glitter. Gabriella Salvete no. 112 – the frosty teal Ingrid Privilege Special Edition … Continue reading →
… is freaking awesome! I love the color, the shift from pink to copper. I love the application, the non-slip cap, the fact that it doesn’t form bubbles even if you apply three coats quite quickly. I used three coats … Continue reading →
Now that was one busy week, so many things to do, so many places to go (yes, by that I mean new drugstores and new polishes 😉 ) I’ve been also waiting for my new Rimmel polishes I’ve ordered from … Continue reading →
so I’ve spent this weekend moving and settling in my new home/room in Brno. I’ve already had a welcome day in the new job and I’m looking forward to tomorrow, because I’m finally going to actually begin my training. Meanwhile I’m going to show you my first-day-at-new-work manicure… While getting to know the new town, I also managed to find some interesting polishes (how unexpected 🙂 ) Since the Catrice stands can be found in this beautiful town, I’ll probably end up buying bunch of their polishes, because I love their colors and LE’s. This mani is in fact consisting of all three of the new polishes I bought yesterday. The base is a gorgeous purple-grey in brushed metal finish (which basically means matte and grainy to the touch – I’ll post a mani where it can be seen better later), the effect is quite interesting, but since you can’t really put a topcoat on it, I worried it wouldn’t survive long enough today. Anyhow, I also wanted to try out the other polishes I bought. So I ended up covering the matte polish with the Smoky top coat – a black jelly with a lot of small and big silver glitter. I expected it to be a very sheer black jelly, but the result after 2 coats looks opaque enough that none of the grey beneath doesn’t show. I’ll see, how it’ll look on naked nails. This is my first jelly based polish with glitter and I just love the hidden glitters peeking from the glossy jelly.
After the jelly try-out, I also added a flashy accent with the a Gold leaf top coat. This one is light gold mix of tiny and medium hex glitters, it’s wonderfully smooth and I think 2-3 coats would completely bedazzle your nails. Which I’m also going to try, of course 😀
Oh, holy purple glitter, how I adore thee! Today I’ve seen tons of polishes in a local Douglas drugstore… all pretty much cremes in the usual range with an occasional exception of the gorgeous Dior polish (I mean this one) and a few others that are totally out of my price range. In short, nothing interesting I could actually buy.
Then I stopped at one shop that sells Golden Rose cosmetics and also nail polishes. Sometimes, when I’m lucky enough, there are some interesting bits to find.
Like this totally gorgeous nail art glitter polish. It’s fine purple glitter in unusually bright shade with mixed holographic glitters. It’s absolutely my type of polish 🙂 This was the only one of the nail art collection that has two kinds of glitter, even though the other colors aren’t bad, there are usually cremes and a few bold glitters.
There you have it… my precious 😉 My polish stash is starting to be overcome by purple polish…
Base – Essence The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn part 2 TE 01 Jacob’s protection
Ok, I’ve done a little cheating with this one 😉 It’s a sparkly purple base with sponged diagonal gradient made in a copper shimmery topper (probably similar to CND Copper shimmer). It ended up looking like a pinkish copper – purple duochrome polish which I love… the fire it has is wonderful.
A picture heavy post, but it was simply necessary because the polishes from the Twilight BDpt2 TE are just wonderful and also pretty hard to photograph. I fell in love with the three dark polishes from this TE as soon … Continue reading →
