2013 review: My favorite manicures

Hello!

Damn time flies fast! I can't believe 2013 is almost over as corny as it sounds. I prepared this post as a little trip down the memory lane for you and for me too, to see what I've done to my  nails this year.


I picked one manicure for each month that I liked best:

Review: Born pretty eyelashes

Hello!

Born pretty store sent me some products a while ago (I already wrote about water decals and nail stickers), including fake eyelashes. I haven't tried any kind of fake lashes before so I decided to give them a try.
Also, mad props to ladies who run beauty blogs, I have no clue how you take such great photos of your eye makeup looks.


Lashes #1: great "natural" looking lashes, not too dramatic but still noticeable, I'll probably wear them for New Years eve


Lashes #2: not very natural lashes, but very fun :)


Lashes #3 : dramatic thick black lashes <3


Lashes #4: unfortunately I can't find the lashes on Born pretty store anymore but you can get similar ones here. These were so sparkly, they'd be great for a festive look

Two sets of lashes came with glue that works pretty well. When I first applied the lashes they did kinda bothered me but after 10 to 15 minutes I got used to them and didn't feel them much anymore.
All in all, fake lashes aren't as scary as I thought they'd be. Obviously I will need more practice applying them but for a first try I think I did quite well :)

Review: Stargazer UV Pink

Hello!

This is the last polish I received from Bodizenska.si and it's one of the most amazing polishes I own <3 I'm pretty sure you all know about my undying love for neons by now :) Stargazer UV Pink is a unique pink neon polish, the pink base contains purplish shimmer that makes this polish really stand out. The only bad thing is that it's pretty sheer so I had to layer it over white (on photos I have one coat of UV Pink over white base). Other than that, perfect <3

Še zadnji lak ki so mi ga poslali iz spletne trgovine Bodizenska.si in prihranila sem najboljše za konec :) Vsi redni bralci verjetno že veste, kako rada nosim neon odtenke in Stargazer UV Pink je super prmerek. Gre za neon roza lak z drobnim vijoličastim shimmrom, ki ni preveč opazen ampak vseeno da laku neko globino. Edina slaba lastnost laka je to, da je slabo prekriven in ga je potrebno slojiti čez belo podlago. Sam odtenek pa je tako čudovit, da mu odpustim tudi to :)
Ta lak in ostale Stargazer neon lake lahko kupite tule, stanejo pa 2.99€

Reviw: Ingrid 280

Hello!


First off, happy holidays to all that celebrate them! Today I'm gonna show you the second polish I got from Bodizenska.si  My second pick was Ingrid 280, a squishy pink jelly polish. Since it's jelly, I decided to go for a sandwich :) This is one coat of Ingrid 280, a coat of Maybelline Colorama Polka dots 197 and topped it with another coat of Ingrid 280. I love the end effect and the glitters peeking out <3

Najprej vesele praznike vsem, ki jh praznujete! Zdaj pa k nohtom :) Danes vam bom pokazala drugi lak, ki sem ga prejela v oceno od Bodizenska.si  Moja druga izbira je bil Ingrid 280, pink odtenek z želejasto strukturo. Ker gre za prosojen odtenek, sem ga uporabila za slojenje. Na slikah lahko vidite eno plast Ingrid 280, plast Maybelline Colorama Polka dots 197 in čez še eno plast Ingrid 280. Končni efekt mi je bil zelo všeč, moram še kdaj naredit kakšen "sendvič" :)
Ingrid lake lahko kupite tule, stanejo pa 1,89€

Review: Stargazer Chrome 234

Hello!

Today I have another review for you, Slovenian online store Bodizenska.si sent me 3 polishes to try out. Today I'm gonna show you my first pick, Stargazer Chrome 234, a gorgeous pink-ish metallic shade. I chose it because all the Stargazer Chrome's are great for stamping. For the base I used Essence Fatal, my go to black and then I stamped the roses on with Bundle monster BM-323 plate. Thank you again miss Gin for hunting down this plate for me.

Pred časom mi je spletna trgovina Bodizenska.si poslala v oceno tri lake in danes vam bom pokazala prvega lepotca. Odločila sem se za Stargazer Chrome 234, čudovit rozast lak s kovinskim videzom. Tako kot ostali iz Chrome kolekcije je tudi 234 odličen za štemplanje, zato sem se odločila da vam ga kar pokažem v akciji :) Za črno osnovo sem uporabila Essence Fatal, potem pa s pomočjo Bundle monster BM-323 ploščice na nohte naštempljala vrtnice (hvala ti še enkrat Gin za to ploščico <3).
Ta lak in ostale Stargazer lake lahko kupite tule, stanejo pa 4.36€

Keep my heels on high, ride or die

Hello!
And we're back to baby stilettos, feels good to be back :)
I decided to do some tape nail art again, been a while since did any. Sometimes keeping it simple works great. For this mani I used base coat, tape and Kleancolor Madly black.
I loved wearing this on my nails, it made me feel like a little badass witch :)

Comparson: Electric blue

Hello!

Buy all the electric blue polishes!
I'm not kidding, I really buy them all :)  They're so damn pretty I just need them all, just in case something happens to one of my bottles. So let's compare electric blues in my collection:
- Essence Electric blue
- Kiko 336
- Astor 70
- Essence Grumpy


All gorgeous but not totally identical. Astor 70 is a bit lighter and Essence Grumpy is a bit darker than Kiko 336 and Essence Electric blue, which are identical.
Application wise they're all two coaters, first coat goes on sheer and the second coat builds the opacity.

Blast from the past: OPI Siberian nights

Hello!

I decided to do new series from time to time - Blast form the past (yes I am original :). As the name says I'm gonna show you  polishes that you've already seen here on my blog but with better photos :) 
First one is OPI Siberian nights (original post here if anyone needs a laugh). I remember how fast it chipped on me the first time I wore it but this time I was pleasantly surprised. It could be a different top and base coat but I'm not complaining either way.
This was three coats, the polish has an almost jelly texture so you can see some bald spots which weren't so visible in real life. Color isn't anything unique, a deep blackened purple but I have a soft spot for black and almost black nail polish <3 I don't know what changed but I like this polish a lot more now than I did in my first post.

Essence Dark romance swatches and giveaway!

Hello!

Look what I found! Well my boyfriend did :) I was so excited when this collection was announced but then there were rumors that Dark romance won't be available in Slovenia. I then contacted the distributor for Slovenia and they gave me the info that it will be available in Muller so that calmed me down a little bit :)

 

I wanted all of the polishes which rarely happens but this is such a dark classic collection that I just had to get them all. Here are some mini swatches( nail swatches for each polish coming soon):
- 01 Dark night starlight (the sparkling)
- 02 Red romance (the matte)
- 03 Moonless night (the suede)
- 04 Gothic gold (the sand)


Since I was so excited and I knew this collection will be harder to get, I decided to do a small giveaway and give away all four shades (which I bought extra, they're unused and unopened).

Now to some technical stuff:
- this giveaway is open internationally
- the giveaway ends on Wednesday, December 25th at midnight
- the winner will be chosen randomly and be notified with an e-mail
- the winner will have 48 hours to respond otherwise a new winner will be chosen
- the prize was bought by me

Thank for stopping by and good luck! **

Once you go great you never go good

Hello!

Last animal print nails  swear :) This time I went for a darker skittles version. For the base  used Manhattan 1010N. I stamped my pinky and thumb with konad m78 and Essence Piece of forever (ugly on it's own but great for stamping). Ring finger and pointer got a gold stud and on my middle finger I put Essence Steel-ing the scene gold topper (I'm sure you haven't seen any manis with it :)
I loved how dark yet still flashy these nail were, I am also warming up to skittle nails :)
