• Kiko

    The perfect sparkle touch

    I’m a girl who gives second chances, and so I decided that also my yellow nails should have their own. And then I found a Kiko store in the city where I study, and it was love at first sight! I took home with me two amazing polishes, and one of them was the perfect final touch for my nails :D And so, here where are again, but this time I’m in love with my mani! Thanks to number 229 (I hate when polishes don’t have names >.

  • Essence

    Essence "You’ve got the art"

    Today a polish from the Whoom Boooom collection by essence: You’ve got the art. I wanted to try this colour even if I’m not a yellow-lover, but I think that this shade isn’t made for me…It’s a pale yellow polish with a touch of green, while I was looking for a simply pale yellow colour. Well, I’ll find it XD Anyway, the application was quite good, like almost all the essence polishes, and two coats were enough to reach a good opacity :) In these pictures I didn’t put any top coat, so you can see that’s a nice shiny varnish!

    Sinful colors "Forget now"

    What a marvellous morning! I woke up in a really good mood today :) Yesterday the lovely Dolores (http://colorfulbottle.blogspot.com) published my post for her project Guest nails (if you’re interested, take a look here), and I’m sooooo happy! Don’t know what I’m talking about? Then click here and you’ll understand ;)Oh, and I also had to go to the dentist yesterday :/ But it went well, and now I’m completely relaxed (except for all the things I have to study for the upcoming exams >.

  • Essence,  Pupa

    Pupa and a matte finish

    I wanted to try the matte finish, and that’s what I did. I used a Pupa polish as base (they unfortunately don’t have names) and the essence matte top coat. Well, let me say some things about this: this the application of the Pupa polish was sooooo difficult! the colour was simply too mushy, and I wasn’t able to do a good job :( I don’t know, maybe because it’s a bit older…anyway, after the base I put the top coat on…and, as you can see, some strange stripes appeared on some fingers (index and middle finger). Probably I did something wrong, but it doesn’t look right >.

  • Essence

    Lovely experiments

    When it came to change my mani, I wanted to try a layering, and I had these two polishes in front of me: Glisten up and No more drama (both from essence). Well, you know what? If you have both too then…overlap them!!! I did it, and the result was amazing (at least for my taste :P)! I don’t know how to describe this colour exactly…I think it’s something like a lila-blue with greenish sparkles in it :) I really really like it :3 I used two coates of No more drama and one of Glisten up: perfect (and a top coat). I think that glisten up is so much…

  • Elf,  Essence

    A touch of sparkle

    Again, when you’re bored with the colour on your nails but you don’t want to do a new manicure, then simply add some nail art or layer another polish on the base. That’s what I did with my Innocent: I added two coats of  Space Qeen (by Essence) on one finger per-hand. And I like the result :D
