    2012 favourites (nail polish and makeup)!

    Here we are, finally. The last day of 2012 has come, and I’m actually pretty excited to start a new year. This hasn’t been the best year for me, there have been a lot of bad moments, but it wasn’t a complete fail. In a few months my blog is turning two, and I must say, I’m pretty satisfied with what I’ve reached so far :) I only hope it will grow even more in 2013, because I’ve become really passionate about this little place of mine! Anyway, this will be quite a long post, because I’m showing you all my favourites (makeup and nail polish) of the year! Are…

  • Pupa

    Pupa n.809 (Déco Collection)

    I don’t know about you, but I definetly need some bling-bling for New Year’s Eve :D And so I tried a Pupa nail polish I bought a few weeks ago; it belongs to the Déco Collection, which is out now. I had some serious trouble choosing just one of the colours on the display, but in end I went for this golden shade, which is n.809. I do really like this nail polish on shorter nails :) The finish is quite interesting because it almost looks like a foil finish, but it’s actually made up of the tiniest glitter particles, and the colours featured are gold, copper and some pink…

    Linea viso DolceVita recensione

    [only italian today] Oggi vi parlo di qualcosa un po’ diverso dal solito, ma non per questo meno interessante, ossia di una nuova linea di prodotti per la cura del viso, chiamata DolceVita. Trovate tutta la linea sul sito www.ebranditalia.it, che vende prodotti per estetiste. Sono stata contattata per testare alcuni dei loro prodotti, e ho accettato con gioia la proposta, visto che da poco mi sono appassionata anche alla cura della pelle (suvvia, chi non desidera una pelle radiosa di porcellana? :D) ed ero curiosa di provare qualcosa di diverso dalle solite marche. I prodotti che ho ricevuto sono il latte detergente multivitaminico, il tonico multivitaminico e un olio di…

  • Essie

    Essie "Bahama mama"

    Well, apparently the world didn’t end today (*happy me*), and that means that I actually have to study for my exams and go out and get a few Christmas presents ç__ç  Anyway, a good way to celebrate this not-end-of-the-world is to show you a nail polish that got very easily into my top favourites-list of all times: Essie “Bahama mama”. I bought it during my trip to Germany a couple of months ago and I already feel that I need a back-up! It’s just the most perfect berry-red shade you’ll ever see, I can’t get over how much I love it

  • Orly,  Rimmel

    Orly "Cupcakes and unicorns" over Rimmel "Aye aye sailor"

    Here I am again, introducing you to another one of the Orly Flash Glam nail polishes. This time it the turn of “Cupcakes and unicorns” (isn’t it the cutest name ever??), a pink shimmery nail polish with bar glitters. I must admit, I’m not the biggest bar-glitter fan, I don’t really get why you should put a spaghetti-like glitter on your nails, but whatever :P. But the best part about this nail polish is definetly the shimmery one! I layered it over a dark navi blue (Rimmel‘s “Aye aye sailor“), which I think is the best choice for this shade (I tried several ones, but this was the one I…

    MUA haul

    Before I continue with the remaining polishes I got from the Orly Flash Glam collection, I quickly want to share with you my little haul from MUA. I got this stuff a few weeks back when they had their 35% off everything sale plus free shipping. I’m definetly enjoying all of the makeup I bought :)) Prima di continuare a mostrarvi i restanti smalti della collezione Flash Glam di Orly, voglio farvi vedere quello che ho acquistato da MUA durante la loro promozione che prevedeva il 35% di sconto su tutto più spedizioni gratuite. E mi sto godendo al massimo ogni articolo acquistato :)) Intense Kisses lipgloss in “Sweet nothings”…

    Orly "Rockets red glare" over itstyle n.19

    I’m soooo tired right now, but I refuse going to sleep at 9 P.M., so I’m trying to keep myself awake by writing this new post :P Anyway, here I am with the second glitter nail polish from the Flash Glam collection by Orly. You already saw the first two nail polishes I received swatched here, but for today I wanted something more colourful and Christmas-themed. So, the colour I used as a base is itsyle’s n.19, while on top I layered this pretty glittery red called “Rockets red glare”. You see, this glitter nail polish is definetly not the most unique out there, but it’s still pretty, and the…
