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! :)
