    Getting ready for Christmas #2: Glitter overload!

    For day 2 of my Getting ready for Christmas challenge, I decided to go all out and make a mish mash manicure featuring a couple of glitter polishes :) The manicure itself doesn’t look really Christmas-y, I know, but to compensate that, I arranged a Christmas-looking background XD Anyway, glitters are always festive, no matter how you style them, right? :P So, the nail polishes I used are the following: NYC ‘Pink princess‘, Essie ‘Luxedo‘, Pupa ‘800‘, H&M ‘Flamingo pink‘ and Essence ‘Make it golden‘. And now….it’s your turn! Show me you glittah!!!! _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Per il secondo giorno della challenge ho deciso di creare una manicure un po’ particolare, mixando…

    Getting ready for Christmas #1: Not yet, but almost!

    Yeah! It’s finally time for day #1 of my Christmas-themed challenge! :D Are you excited as I am ?? Today’s topic is Not yet, but almost!, and with that I meant to show something holiday-inspired (makeup or manicure, it’s up to you!) to get started the best way possible! I chose to go for a manicure, choosing two absolutely perfect nail polishes for the season: a forest green one by CND Vinylux called ‘Serene green‘ and one Shimmer Polish that has a special meaning to me, since it’s called like myself, ‘Elsa‘ :) I think you couldn’t be more festive with a combo like this, don’t you agree? :D So,…

    The Getting Ready for Christmas challenge! preview

    For those of you who enjoyed The Fall Edit tag, here I have another challenge for you! This time, the theme is Christmas of course :D We’re quickly approaching the holiday season, and I absolutely wanted to create something Christmas-inspired, since it’s my absolute favourite period of the year :) I tried to leave space for creativity, giving you the chance to choose between makeup and nail art in most of the entries, so that there’s something to choose from for everybody! I’m giving you a starting date, but, like for The Fall Edit tag, I’m not setting deadlines for any of these points, so you’re free to post whenever…

    Face of the day: taupe & pink

    I sometimes find it hard to wear cooler tones like taupe and pink, because I think warmer colours suit my complexion better. But since I bought a beautiful taupe eye pencil a couple of days ago (Neve cosmetics pastello occhi in ‘Cincillà‘), I wanted to give it a try and make it work somehow. So this is what turned out! I’m actually quite liking it, and I must say that taupe and this cool pink look amazing together, I’m really impressed :) P.S. If you’re wondering why my lipstick looks so shiny even if it’s actually a matte one by Rimmel, it’s because I put a lip balm underneath ;)…

    Orly "What’s the password" (Secret Society collection)

    [ENG] ‘What’s the password’ is by far my favourite of the collection: it’s a beautiful foil orange with a golden reflex. It’s one of those colours you’ll probably never think you’d like until you try it on, and then *SBAM*! You’re in love :D The formula is extremely nice as well: the usual two coats plus top coat and you’re good to go. I actually can’t wait to wear it again soon :) [ITA] ‘What’s the password’ è decisamente il mio smalto preferito della collezione Secret Society: si tratta di uno splendido foil argentato con dei riflessi dorati, uno di quegli smalti che appena vedete nella boccetta non pensereste mai…

    Top 5 Doe Deer Products

    [ITA] Finalmente mi sono decisa a partecipare a uno di questi splendidi tag creati da Drama&Makeup! Il tema di questa puntata è il look da cerbiatta, ossia selezionare cinque prodotti che usiamo quando vogliamo realizzare un trucco particolarmente romantico e dolce. Non ho avuto un attimo di esitazione pensando a quali prodotti scegliere: un look simile per me equivale a uno sguardo luminoso, ciglia lunghe e belle definite e un tocco di colore sulle guance che imiti un naturale arrossamento. Sarò anche poco originale, ma pazienza :P Per il trucco occhi opterei semplicemente per un ombretto champagne molto illuminante, come questo di Alverde (01 Elegant Beige) che ho acquistato in…

    SEE PART ONE HERE [ENG] Here I am with the second and last part of my swatches plus reviews of the Surreal collection* by Orly. This time I have the blue spectrum to show you, with the following nail polishes: [ITA] Ed eccomi con la seconda e ultima parte della collezione Surreal* di Orly. Se l’altra volta vi ho mostrato i tre smalti che viravano verso il rosa e fucsia, oggi vi presento quelli che invece tendono più al blu/verde. [ENG] “Teal unreal“: this was the nail polish I was most afraid of…you know what happens when you apply colours like this, they stain, and they stain badly. ‘Teal unreal’…

    Essie ‘Bahama mama’ & Deborah Lippmann ‘Razzle dazzle’

    I went back to shorties, and to celebrate I chose to wear two of my all-time favourite nail polishes: Essie ‘Bahama mama‘ and Deborah Lippmann ‘Razzle dazzle‘ :) Don’t they look mesmerizing together?? ‘Bahama mama‘ is just the perfect base for this glitter, and I feel so glamorous with this combo on my nails ;) Btw, let me know what you think of the new layout and the ‘new’ nail shape as well, of course! Have an amazing weekend my dears!
