Chresy

Chresy col.718

2013 has (again) started in the worst way possible. My life is upside down again, but this time I’m prepared to face whatever is expecting me. If there’s one thing I have learned this summer is that I am stronger than I thought. I can handle this. And I want to start my life fresh and make the best out of what I have!
And I’m not giving up my blog neither, because I love what I do and it somehow makes me happy to take pictures and write about nail polish and makeup :)
So, for today I have a very special nail polish to show you, and it’s the same brand I showed you in my last post, only that this time the quality is way better and and also the bottle looks less cheap.
This is Chresy COL.718, and I guess this would make such a great and inexpensive (2,30€ ca.) dupe for OPI‘s “Every month in Oktoberfest“!
It comes out like a gorgeous deep blue base with this red, almost purple shimmer. It’s such a mesmerizing colour, I can’t even describe it properly. And this time I also enjoyed using the brush and the formula is completely different, it wasn’t thick at all! And after three days it hasn’t chipped at all, that’s almost incredible for such a cheap nail polish. That’s definitely two thumbs up for me :)

Ebbene ci risiamo…il 2013 non poteva che riservarmi un pessimo inizio. La mia vita è di nuovo sottosopra, ma almeno questa volta so come comportarmi, mi sono preparata. E se c’è una cosa che ho imparato quest’estate è che io sono abbastanza forte da affrontare anche i momenti più bui. Ora è il momento di ricominciare da zero e sfruttare al meglio quello che ho.
Non ho neanche intenzione di mettere in pausa questo blog, poiché è uno di quei piccoli piaceri che rende più gradevoli le mie giornate, anche se per alcuni sembrerà strano che parlare di smalti e cosmetici possa sollevare il morale a qualcuno.
Per oggi vi ho preparato un post con uno smalto molto speciale, appartenente alla stessa marca che vi ho proposto l’ultima volta, solo che in questo caso la qualità è assai migliore e pure la boccetta non fa così schifo :P
Si tratta del Chresy COL.718, che ritengo possa essere considerato un buon dupe economico (2,30€ ca.) del “Every month is Oktoberfest” della OPI.
La base è di un bel blu intenso molto scuro, attraversata da uno shimmer rosso cupo un po’ tendente al viola. E’ un colore incantevole, abbastanza difficile da descrivere a parole. Il pennello è buono, permette un’applicazione molto precisa, mentre la formula in questo caso non è più densa come nell’ultimo caso. Inoltre è tre giorni che lo indosso e ancora neanche un segno di scheggiatura! Decisamente un ottimo acquisto :)

  • Mi ricorda lo Shaka Deep Passion!

  • You wear the greatest colors :)

  • I’m glad that you decided to write this blog post. I think it’s a good thing that you’re still doing what you love and trying to move on. This polish is amazing and it looks so similar to the OPI! I wish I could come to Italy and buy all the great stuff you post!

    • Thank you…I have already experienced what it’s like to be completely destroyed and I don’t want to go trough that again…I’m not feeling good at all, but I want to face this situation with more positivity this time, and I will! Thank you for your nice comments and support <3

  • I hope you’re OK and stay strong, no matter what life throws at you. I’m glad you’re not going to stop blogging because I love your blog. This colour is totally amazing!!! Colours like this are hard to photograph and you did an awesome job!

    • Thank you SO much for your nice words, I really need this at the moment…and thank you for the compliments, I’m so happy that you enjoy reading my blog! :’)

  • Hope things will get better for you now.
    Gorgeous polish.

  • Hope everything’s is fine with you, be strong!
    I love this polish, can you buy it online anywhere? (that ships to Europe)

    xx

    • I’m trying really hard, thank you for your support :) And I really don’t think that this brand is sold online, it’s even hard to find it here in Italy (and it’s made it Italy as well!)…

  • Hi, Elsa!
    I’m sorry to hear that 2013 hasn’t started well for you, but you know, sometimes the harder years are the ones that make us learn the better lessons – especially about our own strength and ability to adapt. Hold your chin high and be sure that you’ll find the path to better days! ;o)
    About the nail polish: it does look like a good dupe to OPI’s, but I guess either will be hard to get for me. Oh well, you can’t have it all, right?!

    • I can’t even tell you how much all your nice words are helping me! It’s always hard to face situations like this one, but I guess that people around you (phisical or virtual) really help to make you feel better, and I really do! So, THANK YOU!
      And yes, unless you live in Italy, it could be a problem to find this brand anywhere else :/ Sorry!

  • non è strano… parlare di smalti e cosmetici tira su il morale ^_^
    per quanto riguarda lo smalto è stupendo! quasi quasi preferisco questo al deep ruby…

  • Awesome! But everything looks great on you. I’m jealous. :) :D

  • Beautiful, and yes, it does look very close to that OPI, at least from photos

  • Hi Elsa, you are strong! Here’s to better days!!!

  • OMG I NEED THIS!!! So gorgeous!!!

    • Oh…and i hope everything works out for you. I am so sorry the year started off on the wrong foot. Be strong!

    • I’m trying really hard! Thank you :)

  • First of all, this polish is stunning! Makes me want to wear the OPI again (my pile of untried’s is not helping the situation!).

    I hope things get better for you! Just take it one day at a time. I hate when my life gets in a rut. I hope you the best, and blogging about it (even if you don’t say what “it” is) helps a lot I find!

    • Thank you for your kind words…and yes, blogging and, most of all, reading your comments really helps! I’m so glad that there are so many beautiful people out there, and I do appreciate all your support so much!

  • Like in the song:
    “Hold your head up, there’s a light in the sky.
    I know you’re fed up, but you must try to survive.
    Each moment’s precious, don’t let life pass you by-
    Keep focused, keep your eyes on the prize.”
    Love the polish: I think it is even a bit more blue then the OPI (which is a good thing)! And it look so good on you too :D

  • Mi piace veramente tantissimo!!!!! (Dopotutto ho fatto la diavola a 4 per avere l’OPI).
    Ho trovato una profumeria che li tiene, finalmente, ma avevano solo la linea di quello che hai postato l’ultima volta, per cui non mi sono azzardata a provare. Se dovessi trovare questi, li prenderò sicuramente.

    Per il resto…in bocca al lupo. Spero si risolva tutto nel migliore dei modi e nel più breve tempo possibile.

  • L’ho visto proprio oggi da dayli con tutta la collezione night e anche la collezione graffy… penso che a breve farò razzia! di questa collezione night mi piacevano il blu, il teal e questo *__*

    • Non ho resistito e l’ho preso, insieme al 715, che è simile ma a base rossa *__*

  • Hope everything is alright with you honey!

    This polish.. it is stunning! I loooove deep vamps like these ♥.
