A lapsed post revived after two months

Me and my blog posting time – or rather lack of it. Somehow I never got to post this one, even though I wanted to show this so much, I was so happy to get it and it means so much to me =) Yet time passed so swiftly and this kept waiting. Now that it’s the end of the year and everybody is putting up pictures of their Christmas gifts, I have a special post dedicated just to show you, what my dear boyfriend brought me from Germany two months ago, when I couldn’t go with him and everyone else.

He asked me beforehand what polishes I would like to have if they had any time for shopping and I’ve emailed him two photos, an H&M “Blue my mind” and a P2 “Gigantic” (if there was one to get by any chance, I know that it has been discontinued). Later on he told me while he was still there, that no H&M he had been to was selling polishes (other than the small ones we get here in Slovenia as well), nor he could find Gigantic (understandable). But he told me that he got something else instead, I couldn’t wait for him to get back home and see the goodies for myself! =)))

Here’s what he brought home for me:


He bought the P2 crackling polish in the similar color to “Gigantic”, the black Colorama he bought because it was Halloween and he wanted to complete his mask and wear it but then ended up not using it at all, and the silvery Misslyn was a bonus for me (I guess he wanted to surprise me with something extra). How amazing is that! =))))) <3<3<3

My girlfriends later told me how sweet he was running back and forth between polish stands in the drugstore, asking them whether they think I would like this or that polish… <3<3<3 =)))) Not only that, he told me that prior to buying any, he also checked and made sure that the brushes were intact!! xDDD

Even though I had no time to publish this sooner, I think it deserved a post of its own. Love is truly showing in the smallest details in life and I am a really lucky girl to have such a thoughtful man! Thank you my love!!! <3<3<3 You truly are the best and I love you dearly! =))))) =**********

My Christmas Day mani – Wine Shimmer Colorama

Hello my dear readers! I know it’s been a while since I actually posted a manicure and that I’ve been absent a lot lately, but that doesn’t mean I forgot about you (or your blogs, dear fellow bloggers!). There is a reason I had no time to post anything, of course work is a big factor and takes up a lot of my time (thank god I have a job btw!), but I also had a lot of business trips to Germany in the last two months. I am very happy to say that even though it was mostly very busy and we had just a little free time to go about, I was able to visit some Germany’s drug stores and buy me some cosmetic goodies (wooohooooooooo! :))))))). Now I can’t wait to try them out and show them to you! ;)

Now that it’s Christmas time I am enjoying a week off work :) I had to work on Monday so there was no special mani for Christmas Eve (during the day it was just another day of being in a hurry), but I had time to do it on Christmas Day, yaaaaay! :))) I finally chose to try one of the gorgeous beauties I bought a month ago and I haven’t seen it sold in Slovenia yet – a Maybelline Colorama 265 Wine Shimmer. It’s a beautiful red jelly packed with small holographic glitter – perfect for Christmas!

Check this beauty out! :)






I have to say, my camera had trouble picking up the right color, the most color accurate photo may be the last one, but the brightness is more accurate on first photos - it’s a bright deep red. Here I have three coats – not necessary for coverage, two is enough, but with two the color is lighter (and the reason I have three is I messed up one finger and had to put on the third coat – but then the difference in color showed so I had to even that out). I don’t know how the VNL comes up in the photos, in real life it is not visible unless you really really try hard to look for it.

The formula is great, it dries nicely, the only minus is that my tips were worn off from the beginning – but that may be due to my Essence better than gel nails top sealer shrinking it. I love how it shines and the depth it has being a jelly with glitters shining in different layers. I love it! :)

I hope all of you had a warm and happy Christmas with your families! :)

Bourjois Fuchsia Hype

Hello everybody, I finally have some time to post something. I’ve decided to show you an amazing polish I wore back in September but somehow never got to publish. I bought it in a package together with two mascaras – one was inside the box and one just tied to it. Here’s what the original package looked like (picture taken from – the only one I could find since I never took one), they are still being sold in Slovenia:


The mascara tied to the box was this one (picture taken from


Unfortunately I’m disappointed in both of the mascaras, still searching for my holy grail. But let’s get back to the subject. The Fuchsia Hype polish – such a win! The color is amazing, the application is amazing, I put on two coats but I think if you are talented enough you need only one, and the staying time – wow! I wore it for days and it didn’t start chipping until I had to do a hard cleanup of the apartment after repainting! I just love the quality of this one! ^ ^

And the photos I took:



Does anyone else own any Bourjois “So Laque” polishes? Do you have similar experiences?
