NOTD: Essie Red Noveau

I've decided for red nail polish today. This one is from Essie's Art of Spring collection too, just like Van D'Go.
Red Noveau is probably the smoothest nail polish I've ever tried. I can't believe how well and easy is this gorgeus red creme polish to handle.


Well, enough talking, let's take a look. Here it is, two coats.

Under artificial light:



Under natural daylight (no sun):







Have a nice weekend!

The Strangest Thing...

I came into my room earlier and something just didn't look right. Hmmm...
O, yeah, somebody threw everything off my coffee table, spillt my glass of water, but I didn't see anybody in my room. Strange...

Wait. I found some weird thing hidding under my sofa.




Thanks for stopping by!

NOTD: Essie Van D'Go

I've decided for Essie Van D'Go from Art of Spring collection today.

It's a pinky/peach colour and I'm not sure I like it on me. I'm so not used to wearing colours like this and even my parents were quite surprised when they saw my nails :)


Like it was said on other blogs where I saw swatches, the formula of these is very good and they are very smooth and non-problematic to work with. And for those of you, who really like this kind of colours, I think it would be great spring shade to wear.

Here it is in 2 coats, under different lighting:










Thank you for looking!


P.S. Don't forget to enter my giveaway ;)

Essie Art Of Spring Haul & A BIG thank

Our postman had something for me today, huray! :D

I finally got my Essie Art of Spring polishes. This kind of colours (soft and pastels) were not actually my stile up until this year. But lately, I don't know, I'm getting older and softer, I guess. Because when I saw swatches of these, I like them immediately.

Here they are - mini set and Van D'Go:



And I owe a BIG thank to my fellow blogger elchy, because she sent me another polish from my wish list (Essence Chill Out), lovely nail stickers and a yummy chocolate :D
So, elchy, Thank you so much :*

NOTD: S-he 434

I think it's time to put some paint on my nails again :)
Here it is S-he Stylezone nail polish in 434. I received this one yesterday from elchy. Thank you, again :*

It's such an interesting colour - like a purple base, with fine various (mostly green) shimmer in it. I think that this is the most beautiful nail polish I own (that isn't red :)). Just look:


















I used two coats. The pictures were taken under different lighting, so I could show you all the beauty that is hiding in this polish :)

Sorry for so many pictures, I just couldn't decide which (not) to post. But non of these show the totally accurate colour :S


Thanks for looking!

Zoeva Blush Palettes

I have receiced an e-mail newsletter from Zoeva saying that they have two new palettes in their shop. They are blush palettes and the "Sun Power" palette is already on my wish list.

If they would just reduce their shipping costs to Slovenia, I would ordered one immediately.

Surprise In My Mail :D

Once again, elchy, my fellow blogger and very sweet girl, was the one who made my day...

I was very surprised, when there was a package in my mail today. I wasn't expecting anything, so I was even more curious what is in it. And when I opened it - there was a S-he nail polish 434 that was on my wish list for so long, Milka chocolate (I just love chocolate) and a very sweet note from elchy. Thank you very much :*







Who made your day?

Sunshine Award

Lovely Tamara from Stelle Di Canella gave me Sunshine Award. Thank you so much :)




I should pass this award on 12 other bloggers, whose blogs I like.

Well, all the blogs I like to read are on my blog list and if you are on it, consider yourself tagged (and I mean it!) ;)

Swatch: Essence "Go Snow" LE Cream To Powder Blush

This is my first Essence blush and it is from this January LE "Go Snow". It has Nr. 01 - Snow Bunny. I got mine from very nice girl and fellow blogger, named elchy. Thank you :)


It's cream to powder blush and I like it a lot - it really turns from cream blush into fine powdery finish. I just have to figure it out which brush would be the best for this kind of blushes. Now I'm using my fingers, but I'm not always satisfied with the result. I think that with a right brush final look would be much better.

100 % Pure Haul And China Glaze Channelesque

My nails are super short at the time, because both my middle fingers are seriously splitted (hmmm, I wonder why exactly these two fingers?), so there will be no NOTD for some time.


But, I finally got to the post office today, where they were two packages waiting for me - one full of goodies of 100% Pure skincare products (they were 45% off on bbnatura web site) and the other with China Glaze Channelesque in it *yeeeey*


This is what I got:

Organic Honey Almond Mourishing Body Cream and Organic Coconut Nourishing Body Cream:



Organic Fuji Apple Shower Gel and Organic Honey Pear Shower Gel:



Organic Coconut Body Scrub and Strawberry Lemonade Organic Body Scrub:



When it comes to skin care, I'm trying to use "natural" or "organic" products and these from 100% Pure smell just amazing. Can't wait to try them...


And here is my new nail polish China Glaze in Channelesque (which is discontinued):




Thanks for stopping by :)

NOTD: OPI Meet & Jingle

I've been really busy these days, so I didn't even have time to do some blogging.


Here are my nails of the day with OPI Meet & Jingle from Holiday Wishes Collection. It's a medium red colour with such fine red shimmer in it.

Two coats and a top coat under different lighting:











And there is still so much snow and cold here in Slovenia. I can't wait for the spring to come...




Thanks for looking :)

New Nail Polishes And Essence Comparison

I had a job interview this morning and I was picking out which nail polish to wear. I've decided for Essence Nail polish in 02 Honey Bun from Pure Beauty LE. When I painted my first nail with it, it looked so familiar. Where have I seen this colour before? Well, it's a dupe to Essence Insider from their regular line (you can click on the link to see my NOTD with it).

Index finger: Essence Insider; Middle finger: Essence Honey Bun

And here are my new nail polishes - mini OPI Meet & Jingle and Mad As Hatter:



OPI An Affair In Red Square:

NOTD: China Glaze Let's Groove

Few days ago (I think it was Sunday evening) I discovered a new (Slovenian) online store with nail polishes called Za piko na i. I couldn't believe what I saw - China Glaze, OPI and soon Zoya available in our little country online? I was so happy that finally somebody has started selling this stuff...

So, of course I had to buy something. I was having few troubles trying to registry, so I wrote an e-mail to their customer service and I got answer in like 5 minutes (and it was Sunday night). I solved my troubles and ordered two polishes. This morning the package was already in my hands :)


I'm wearing China Glaze Let's Groove from Retro Diva collection, which is probably my favourite nail polish collection ever. This one is gorgeus deep purple colour with such fine red and blue shimmer in it.

Have a nice day!
