Baroque fool

Today I have an older mani to show you. I wore it back in the summer but it was too special to put it in my summertime manis post. It's special because it's so pretty and because it wasn't made by me. My bff miss Gin Shivers did this one and I must admit it felt weird let someone else do my nails. She the queen of layering stamps so that's just what we did. The plates were Lily Anna 07 and 08.The stamping polishes used were the awesome Mundo de unas, blue and neon yellow. I must admit I would never came up with this idea on my own but the result was just so pretty <3

Polish yer hooves Zombie cow blood

Today I'm gonna show you Polish yer hooves nail polish Zombie cow blood (love the name, very fitting). It's a green scattered holo, a bit sheer like most holos are so I put it over a green base (2 coats of Essence Check me out). Ths would be a great Halloween option <3 It's been a while since I wore green nails so this sparkly polish was quite a refreshment.
I got this polish from miss Gin and in case you don't know (like I didn't), Polish yer hooves is a small indie brand, you can check their Facebook page and their store

Review: Born pretty store water decals (Galaxy cat nails)


Can I just start this by saying this is probably my favourite manicure ever? It has cats and it has space, what else beside coffee would you need?
I've been eyeing these cute animal water decals for a while. There's no other way to do cat decals other than match them with galaxy nails so that's exactly what I did. If you like the idea, go check out OMG cats in space

Decals are great, the quality of the print is good, hey don't tear and they lay nice and flat on the nail. You get a great variety of cute cats, dogs, ducks, bows and flowers so the mani options are endless.
Nail decals are available here for 3.99$ and you can browse for more nail art here

Review: Makeup Revolution


A while ago I was sent a surprise package from Slovenian online store licila.si. They sent me some Makeup Revolution products, which is a fairly new brand on the market. I suck at beauty blogging that's why this review is coming so late.
Comment below if you have any tips how to take good makeup in action/closeup pics cause mine all turned out bad. Mad props to all you beauty bloggers out there :)
Here are the goodies I got:

Review: Born pretty store nail stickers


I got two more Born pretty store products to test, one are these fun summertime nail stickers. 
The packaging is classic, you get 14 strips in different sizes which is great cause you can do a full mani and you still have some left for accent nails. It also gives you a better chance at finding the correct strip size for your nail (but you can also cut them, they're soft and they don't tear). 
The stickers are beautiful but unfortunately my experience wasn't good. It's not the stickers fault, it's my curvy nails :( As a result, I couldn't get a nice smooth application as you can see in the photos below. Such a shame, I bet these would look amazing on flatter nails.

Ikona event (The New Black & Kardashian beauty)


Am I late to the party or what? :) Back in July Ikona Ljubljana organised a blogger event, presenting us with new brands on our market, The New Black and Kardashian beauty. We were greeted by the lovely employers who gave us a short presentation of the store and the two brands. After that, we were free to browse the products, eat some chocolates and drink delicious tea..
As a nail blogger I gravitated more toward The New Black products so I was really excited when I saw their nail polish in the goodie bag we got.

Review: Born pretty stamping plate QA75


I got to test another great Born pretty store product, QA75 stamping plate. The images are very similar, floral patterns and a perfume bottle. What I really like about it is that it's big (insert a dirty joke here if you want to :) When my nails get longer, most stamping plates don't work me anymore because the images don't cover the entire length of my nail. These patterns are long enough to no not give me any problems so I'll be able to use it even with my claws <3.

This stamping plate is available  here for 2.99$ and more nail art here

Catrice Must-Have STEELetto


Catrice came out with some new polishes. Good thing: the colors are gorgeous. Bad thing: the brushes are still horrendous! I truly believe that Catrice staff consists of sadistic people who probably laugh every time someone says "new and improved brush". Catrice I love your polishes, please please please bring the original brushes back!
I wanted to buy First class up-grade but then I saw swatches and comparison on Danny's blog (go check her post here, she's an awesome blogger) and decided that I don't need it. But I did get Catrice Must-Have STEELetto, a beautiful metallic silver lilac polish. Two coats were enough, formula is ok and the brush....well scroll down for the brush pics :)

Catrice Must-Have STEELetto: 2 coats + top coat
