    Orly ‘Macabre Masquerade’ [Secret Society Collection]

    You may have noticed that I haven’t posted many nail-related posts recently, and that’s simply because the weather is that horrible that I am not able to take good pictures of my manicures. It’s such a frustrating thing, since I don’t like taking pictures with artificial lighting, and I still have to review a few polishes that are sitting there in my drawer for way too long. Anyway, today I’m posting a manicure even if I don’t like how the pictures turned out at all, because I know that I won’t be able to do a better job in the next few days, so please be clement with me this time!…

    Getting ready for Christmas #4: Red and gold

    Day 4: Probably the most classic Christmas-combo ever, red & gold, but I could not skip it since it’s also one of my favourites for this time of the year! I could have created a makeup look with this theme, but then I remembered that I still had to show you a few Orly polishes from the Secret Society collection, and two of them were actually a red creme polish and the other one is a gold glitter, how perfect! :D So here they are: the red is called ‘Risque encounter‘* and the gold one ‘Lavish bash‘*. ‘Risque encounter‘ is your bright cool-toned red, almost orange-y looking in some lights;…

    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…

    Orly "Voyeristic Adventure" (Secret Society collection)

    [ENG] My taste in makeup and nail polish has changed quite a bit over the last few months. I would have never chosen a colour like this to wear on a daily basis before! I don’t know, maybe because it’s so flashy and in-your-face (let’s face it: it’s like wearing poured silver on your nails!), but recently, probably also because I’ve changed shape and length of my nails, I’ve enjoyed wearing a lot of polishes that were completely out of my comfort zone. Anyway, “Voyeristic Adventure“* belongs to the most recent Christmas 2013 collection by Orly, and I would describe it as a silver foil with a hint of champagne…
