    Orly "Liquid Vinyl" and "Holy Holo" (Flash Glam)

    Hello there! Hope you’re all doing well :) Today I have the pleasure to introduce you to the first two nail polishes from the latest Orly Flash Glam collection I got. There’s a LOT of glitters in this collection, and they’re all incredibly pretty *-* Anyway, the one I’m showing you today is “Holy Holo” (very appropriate name, btw) over “Liquid Vinyl“. First of all, let me say that I’m quite impressed by this black nail polish: it has a gorgeous formula, it’s very pigmented and super glossy! On top of it I layered the glitters, which you can see are pretty big. Another great nail polish: when you put a…

    Pupa 619 "Deep ruby" and kkcenterhk striping tape

    You all probably know that I’m not that good at nail art, but I’m a big fan of easy ways of doing pretty things.  So, when kkcenterhk asked me if I wanted to try some other of their stuff, I thought that this striping tape was exactly what I was looking for (you can find it here).  You can probably use it as nail decoration as well, but I decided to try it for a kind of laser nail art (I don’t know if it’s called like that, but you know what I mean). The easiest thing in the world, believe me! So, for this mani I chose one of my latest…

    Sinful Colors "Sugar sugar"

    If you follow me on Facebook you’ll probably know that I have recently found the perfect holiday red, in my opinion. And if you have been following me for a while now, you’ll also know that I’m not particularly keen on red nail polishes…but hey, when it’s Christmas time something magic happens to me, and I start feeling the need to put some red on my nails :D So here we are, I have a red nail polish on and I do really love it! If this not the magic of Christmas….! Anyway, the colour I’m going to show you is from Sinful Colors, a brand that has recently appeared in…

    Glitter overload!

    Remember a couple of posts ago when I told you that when it’s time for Christmas I also get very excited about glitter? Well, I thought I should do a selection of my favourite glitter/shimmer polishes for Christmas and show you :) So, I hope you’ll like it, and feel free to tell me which ones are your favourites! Ricordate un paio di post fa quando ho detto che sotto Natale cresce in modo esponenziale il mio bisogno di glitter? Bé, a tal proposito ho pensato di riunire in un unico post tutte le mie proposte glitterose/shimmerose per queste feste e mostrarvele :) Spero vi piaccia e fatemi sapere quali…

    "Chic reloaded" by essence

    For today I have a nail polish that was pretty disappointing to me: essence “Chic reloaded“.This has been the first one I got from the new colour&go line, and I was so excited to try it after seeing some amazing pics on other blogs (here and here). But when I tried it on my nails it really looked like nothing special :( For the most time it looks somewhat of a gunmetal grey with some purple and green under a different angle, but the colour shifting is very subtle. All my pictures are taken with daylight, so you can see how it looks in reality. I’m not a fan… Btw, I’m starting…

    the Balm "Shady lady" eyeshadow palette

    So, today I received an AMAZING gift from my father, and it’s the gorgeous “Shady lady” eyeshadow palette from the Balm (cheetah version)! I was (as usual) watching and swatching (and drooling) eyeshadows on my wrist when my father came to me and said “which one would you choose of these?”. Well, it took me a while to decide because all the Shady lady palettes are gorgeous, but in the end I said “this one” pointing to the cheetah version. I never thought that he would buy it for me, saying that he would anticipate my Christmas gift *-* Well, that was definetly an amazing surprise, and I’m so very…

    Essie "Luxedo" + essence "The huntsman"

    Good morning! Today I show you one of the polishes I bought during my trip to Germany: Essie “Luxedo“, which is a gorgeous very dark plummy colour, that looks almost black irl. This was of course the perfect canvas for some glitters, so I picked my beloved essence topper called “The huntsman“, a very beautiful mix of different sized gold glitters plus some big chunks. I absolutely adore this combo, it looks kind of glamourous but vampy at the same time :D Buondì! Oggi vi mostro finalmente uno dei miei primi acquisti fatti durante il mio viaggio in Germania, ossia Essie “Luxedo“, un bellissimo color viola scuro, che appare quasi…
