S-he's Got It NOTD

So, yeah, I was browsing my boxes with nail polishes yesterday and I just couldn't decide which one to pick. But then, when I almost gave up, this baby caught my eye - S-he 208. Sadly, these are long gone by now...


Sun:




Shade:



S-he Stylezone in 208 is an orange based red with golden glass-flecked shimmer and it's jelly like. Application was very good, but after two coats my nail line is still a bit visible, but I don't mind. I really like this one - perfect Summer shade!


Thanks for dropping by!

Naked!

Nails, that is. I've been rocking them (almost) naked most of the time lately... I'm usually wearing Kiss Diamond Hard Basecoat though.




But no worries, I'm already picking out nail polish that I'll wear next.

Kelly's Alter Ego NOTD

Yup, I'm showing you my today's manicure! I've decided to do a bit different accent mani than usual this time. So, I'm wearing Zoya Kelly on my pointer finger and Color Club Alter Ego on all the other fingers.





Zoya Kelly is a dark grey creme and I have already shown it once here. Color Club Alter Ego is an awesome purple almost foil like nail polish with gold, silver etc. glass-flecked shimmer in it. It's incredibly shiny under the sunlight, but sheer though. You'll need three coats for full coverage.


How do you like this combo?

Coral Pink Lips For Summer Kisses: Catrice Colour Bomb Velvet Matte Lip Colour LOTD

I've been loving Catrice Colour Bomb Velvet Matte Lip Colour (from the Revoltaire LE) lately and it was on my lips again yesterday.


Colour Bomb is a bright coral/pink matte shade and it did take me some time to get used to such bright lipstick and I really like it now. Since this is a matte lipstick, it feels a bit dry on the lips, but I always put a thin layer of lip balm under it anyway. 
As far as I know this one is very similar (dupe?) to MAC Watch Me Simmer lipstick from their MAC Shop MAC Cook Collection.


It comes in a really beautiful case:




This is how it looks on the lips:





Would you wear it? Do you own it and how do you like it?
