Mashup #1

My first post on more than one subject. :P

I just came back from vacations, I had a great time at the beach every day (oh the sun, the sea….!!), just not enough time for polishes – yup, I’m an addict. :P But I have somehow managed to take some time in the evenings to do some manicures ^ ^

First I’m going to show you what I wore in the beginning. On my hands was Kinetics Forget-Me-Not polish, a blue polish with blue glitter and a purple reflection in the bottle that didn’t really transit to my nails :/

A bottle in the sun (it is so hard to capture the purple shine, you can see it just a little by the “K”):


My nails and the bottle on a cloudy day:


I love this kind of color, but sadly the polish is very sheer, I put on three coats and it still wasn’t completely opaque… :( The tips of my nails were soon worn out as well. Such a shame for such a beauiful polish :( I’ll post more pictures of it in a separate post.

On my feet I wore Essence Show Your Feet 25 Kiss of the mermaid from this year’s Trend Edition:



This is another Essence SYF perfection, I put only one coat on and it was sooo bright :))) On the sun it was neon like, totally right for the summer :))) But maybe I should’ve put two coats of it or at least a top coat on for it rubbed off on the tips in just a couple of days because I wore shoes in the evening :/ Oh well, an excuse for another color… ;)))

While I was on vacations, I run out of cotton pads and decided it would be easier to buy them in a grocery store while buying food than purposely going to the drugstore just for that. I bought Jasmin pads, payed a little less than 1,5€, brought them home, used them and became totally frustrated. These were the pads:


And the reason for my frustration – wherever there was a flower on the pad, it instantly fell apart without much rubbing :/


…and here’s what the pads looked like after some rubbing:


Come on!!


I guess you could say the pads are really sensitive, not that they are meant for sensitive skin :/


Unless you want that to happen to your pads, I would advise NOT TO BUY these. I would get more for less money in a drugstore – lesson learned!

…Afterwards I was in Müller and I saw this, an almost full rack of Essence Miami Roller Girl TE (one shade of polish was missing):


I was excited, but then I realised I don’t really like most of it in person or that I really don’t need it. Nevertheless I bought this:



I’m not really an orange kind of girl, I prefer pink over red, but after swatching both testers of balms on my hand the orange one left a prettier pink than the pink one. Both smelled deliciously like candy though (and I’m a sucker for nice smelling stuff :PP). The balm actually leaves color on lips and it is moisturising, my lips didn’t dry out, yeeeey :))) I payed 2,19€ for it.

Did you get anything from this TE?

That’s it for this post, I hope you liked it! :)


  1. Upam, da to ne bo zvenelo zelo čudno, ampak kako lepe prste na nogah imaš. :$
    Pa lak ti krasno pristaja. Prava poletna barva.

    Sensitive pads, hehe. :D
    Opažam, da smo ženske kar občutljive na kakovost blazinic. Tudi jaz imam samo dvoje, s katerimi sem zadovoljna. In jih kar s sabo nosim, če kam grem, ker sem prepričana, da na poti ne morem kupiti dobrih. :)

    1. :blush: Hvala! :))) Meni je smešno, da mi je najbolj kul to, da na nogah ne rabim nosit nobenih "distančnikov" za prste, ker se nohti ne dotikajo prstov... XDDD Sicer pa mislim, da ženske ful preveč kompliciramo glede prstov na nogi, pač so kakršni so, kaj zdaj, da bi se obremenjevale še s tem... nima smisla ;)

      Glede blazinic pa ja, res si nisem mislila, da bodo Jasmin tako zanič. Sej pa so ja že celo večnost na trgu! :/ No ja, vsaka šola nekaj stane. Naslednjič grem v DM. ;)

  2. Se strinjam z Meri, jaz bi tudi take nohte na nogah! :D

    tele blazinice res izgledajo zanič, nisem si mislila. Jaz imam vedno tiste Belawa (?) in so mi še najbolj "normalne" in primerne za takšno potrošnjo. :D
