NOTD: Gilded

Twilight – the saga I know (almost) nothing about and something that interests me like dust on a shelf. However, every year it brings about Essence’s awesome trend editions and this year’s was no exception! I thought I was going to buy all four polishes, but somehow sanity kicked in when I was at the stand and I left one shade (!) on the shelf – Edward’s love just seemed too much like last years Hunt me if you can (and I’ve read about that before, but was certain I was going to get it anyway). So this is how I became a proud owner of three new polishes from Essence’s Breaking Dawn Trend Edition (I also bought the lipstick, love that shimmer!).

The problem was, I was so in love with the Maybelline Colorama 145 I showed you in my last post, I didn’t want to take it off just yet. And since I’ve read that the golden A piece of forever polish from Breaking Dawn was good for stamping, I once again pulled out my Kand nail plate CK-04 that I got from Born Pretty Store. Here are the results:




And the last photo was taken in the daylight:


You can see I wanted to have both polishes in my hand, boy it gave me trouble, LOL! :D But I love that combination!

NOTD: New Maybelline Colorama 145

Hello my dear polishholics! First I have to apologize for not quickly responding to your dear comments on my past three posts, I scheduled them upfront and didn’t think to mention that (I’ll make sure to include that information in the future, just so you know) and couldn’t answer until I got back to Slovenia. But thank you thank you thank you all for your comments, it really means a lot to me! <3

Today I have such an amazing polish to show to you, perfect for autumn! I was curious what the new polishes from Maybelline Colorama are like so I bought this beautiful red shade with golden shimmer. I wear red so rarely, I’m definitely a pink kind of girl (mostly because I don’t have a fashion sense at all and so combining different clothes gives me a headache, even more so when it comes to red vs. pink – so much easier to stick to just one and not to think about it too much… not really proud of that though or pleased with either, maybe I’ll have to change that… =/ ). OK, here are the photos!

The first one is taken under the direct artificial light (and I think this is what it would look like under the sunlight):

And the second one just under the plain light in my room which gave it a more brownish shade (kind of like in the shade =D):

I had no trouble with the application, the polish dried quickly, I painted it in two layers. The new bottles contain 7ml whereas the old ones had 7,5ml of polish, the price however I think is the same, a little less than 3€.

Check out the color and the golden shimmer! Isn’t it just gorgeous! Man, I have to wear red more often! =)))

Have you also bought any new Colorama polishes yet, do you like them?

Thanks for reading! =)

NOTD: Barry M Indigo

I’ve posted about this polish before, a dear friend of mine bought it for me in London and then refused to take any payment for it, saying it’s her souvenir for me, how sweet! :))

This one has been on my wish list for a loooooong time. It’s a beautiful blurple that of course my camera had trouble capturing. In addition to that, the first time I had it on, for some reason my top coat bubbled on me badly, but I did take some photos anyway. Later on I removed it and noticed my nails peeling :( I had to file them down, I can’t seem to grow my nails longer now… I will have to do something about it, but until later I will have to be showing you my little nubbins again… Here are photos from both “photo sessions”, the color is not as blue as in the first photo and not as violet as in the second one… try to imagine something in between….



And finally a photo taken under direct sunlight, yay sun! :))) I guess this is the most color accurate photo:


I’m so happy I have this one, the color is fabulous, the formula grand, the application effortless! :)))

Do you like Barry M polishes as much as I do? :)))

NOTD: H&M Oh La La

Today I’m showing you a small polish from H&M, there were four shades but I chose to buy just one. It’s a coral shade with golden shimmer, at times it seemed more pinkish and at times it seemed orangey. I took some photos under different lightings, no daylight, sorry, but check it out!

An interesting color that I like a lot, but I don’t like the formula, the application was uneven and it gave me trouble.

Even though I generally like these small H&M polishes, I don’t know why we don’t have the ones from the H&M regular line…?? :(

NOTD: Essence Class of 2013 TE Rules of being cool

Hy all! It seems to me it has been such a long time since I last posted but my schedule keeps being crazy. There are too many things I want to do besides my work and there isn’t enough time to do them all. I still try to find time to paint my nails though since I do realize I have a true nail polish obsession… :P

Today I’m showing you a piece from Essence’s Trend edition Class of 2013, Rules of being cool. Even though I have a polish addiction I’ve been feeling a little bit bombarded with all the trend editions in the last month. I can’t believe what I’m about to say – I feel there is too much of everything.

I know there are still some stores you can get this one in Slovenia. Here’s what it looked like on me:



I know the photos are not the best, but being at work everyday means rarely getting any daylight for taking pictures.

I really like this dusty periwinkle color, but the application was a bit patchy (just like pastel blues) and I had to be aware of that to even it out.

Did you get anything from this TE?

Deborah Milano #17

Hey hey, I am sorry, but I have a crazy time schedule at the moment, so I had to prepare a few posts upfront with some of my past manicures I wasn’t able to publish yet. I hope you enjoy my posts, and I hope to get back on track as soon as possible. Thanks for understanding! :)

Today I’m showing you a polish I really like, Deborah Milano #17. The pictures were taken in the summertime so I’ve got a little tan :P

IMG_4907 IMG_4904 IMG_4909 

I love Deborah Milano polishes! And these shimmery shades! So beautiful! This one is quite sheer though and prone to bald spots, you have to be aware of that, otherwise the formula gave me no troubles.

I’ve seen that these polishes are being on sale at the moment in more than one drugstore, so I’m thinking they may be discontinuing them and bringing something new to the shelves.

Do you have any from this Shine Tech line? Do you like them?
