Halloween

Hello!

I'm late as always, but I still want to put this post up before midnight :) It was a hectic day today, so I am writing this over at Gin's from Baroque Fool place with a glass of gin sprite in my hand, full on make up an dressed like the president of the slut committee. It's Halloween after all :)

I decided to recreate my Favourite song mani from Three challenge, only in red. I love this version even more <3



It looks even better mattified. Ignore the white spot, if you ever used matte topcoat, you know what this is about :)





Which version do you like better?
Happy Halloween and thanks for stopping by**

Halloween: Glow-in-the-dark Skulls

Hello!

My second Halloween attempt, cute glow in the dark skulls :) For the white base I used a random white, details were made with Essence Back to black (brush, dotting tool and stripper). Of course I had to make it glow in the dark, so I put one coat of China glaze Ghoulish glow over white.





You can totally tell that my pinkie is the smallest nail and that it gets the most polish :D


My next post is gonna be my actual Halloween mani. I already have it all in my head and I'm way to excited about it :D

Halloween: Orange bats

Hello!

Halloween is coming soon yay :) So I prepared a themed mani or two. 
This is a very simple one, for the base I used Essence Wake up. Perfect polish, a gorgeous rich creamy orange, opaque in one coat. For the accent I used two cute bat nail stickers. Easy peasy :)

Mix and match shorties

Hello!

I broke nails :( Damn you stupid door, showing up out of nowhere, totally unexpected :) Since short nails aren't really my thing, I decided to go for an unusual mani too :) I'm usually really not into cute and pastels. But I think this mani is perfect for Mateja from Purple glitters giveaway; it's purple, glittery, cute and very feminine & girly :)
I used Milani Purple gleam <3 for thumb and pinkie, Catrice Lucky in lilac for index and dots, Barry M Silver foil for konad and middle finger, and ELF Royal purple for ring finger. I must admit, I kinda like it :D

Also please ignore the paint job, it's not as good as it usually is. I turn into a toddler, that is doing nails when my nails get super shot.







Like it edgy or cute?

Avon Splendid blue

Hello!

This post is for the lovely Vita from Making up 4 my age She wanted to see it and I'll gladly show it :)

Splendid blue is one of the prettiest blues I own. Deep blue base with dens tiny blue and silver flecks. This is two thin coats and the polish practically applied itself. Great brush and excellent formula. So far I only had great experiences with Avon nail polishes. Too bad they don't sell them in stores, they only do catalogue sale. The pictures in those catalogues are usually ugly as sin :) Not even real photos, photoshopped cartoonish pictures. I definitely recommend you this polish, I must try it once with a matte topcoat, it would probably give the look a suede effect.





Any Avon polish that you would recomment to me?

Essence I'm the boss! and some shoe porn

Hello!

First off, I hate new Essence brushes :( I think I'm the only one, everyone else is pretty much raving about them. But some colours are still worth the hassle, I'm the boss! for example :) Gorgeous dark gray with silver flecks and sparse blue and pink chunks, that aren't really that visible. This is two painful coats (really having problems with the brush, the old ones were perfect) and top coat.






It's also been a while since I've shown you any shoes. I just couldn't pass these and I think the name of the nail polish in this post really suits them: Like a lady boss! :)

Smart girls get more 44

Hello!

Actually, smart girls have awesome friends that bring them nail polish from their vacation instead of sending them a postcard :) 

I kinda suck at describing colours, so just look at this pretty one <3 Smart girls get more 44 is just perfect; green in the middle, blue around the edges, with rich gold shimmer and sparse tiny glitter. I know it's available at drugstores in Croatia, for other countries I can't tell. It's quite sheer so it needed three coats. Otherwise, great nail polish. Only bad this is, that it's only 5 ml. If you can get it where you live, I strongly suggest that you do :)







Do you like it as much as I do or it's not your cup of tea?

Comparison: OPI Every month is Oktoberfest vs. b.pretty Ruby suprise

Hello!

After quite some time another comparison on my blog; I am showing you two gorgeous and in my opinion identical polishes.

I first got OPI as a very early Christmast gift and when I first held it in my hands I was immediately sold <3 Later I came across some swatches of b.pretty which is a Bipa drugstore brand (available only in Austria I believe available in Austria and apparently Croatia too). My BF had a few errands to run in Austria and he was kind enough to go pick it up a bottle for me.

Both are gorgeous blue based purples with red shimmer, perfect for fall. They look the same to me and even the formula felt the same, they even bubbled the same amount. I also got no chips in 3 days so they both have nice staying power. I would recommend both to you, b.pretty is cheaper per milliliter but also harder to get. Anyways, I still think I need them both :)






Bottle to bottle comparison, 15ml and 5ml:



Could you tell them apart?
