Essence - Do you speak love?

Hi,
how are you all doing on this cold and rainy day?
I have an Essence Colour and Go nail polish to show you - again :)
It's called Do you speak love? and it's a creamy dark red - pefect for autumn :) It needed 2 coats, the application was okay, the only thing that bothered me were the bubbles. I don't know what happened, because I used this nail polish before and this wasn't a problem then. We'll see if this will happen again and I'll let you know.





Have a great start of the new week! :)

Essence - I love bad boys

Hello,
I want to show you another nail polish from new Essence Color and Go line. It's called I love bad boys and it's something between light blue and green with lots of light blue shimmer. I used 2 coats, everything went smooth and I think that I'm getting used to the new brush! :)

Here it is:



Like I said before, I love the colors the came up with, they really did an amazing job, so be prepared to see more from this line in the future, because I still have some of them to show you. :)

Bourjois - Rose Cupcake + Konad m61

Hello,
I'll be quick today, because I am super busy these days. :)

Here is what I used:
* Bourjois - Rose Cupcake (for a base)
* Essence - Cotton Candy (Circus Circus LE) and Konad image plate m61 (for stamping)



 
P.S. I'm not liking these Bourjois "1 seconde" nail polishes, they took forever to dry. The others from Bourjois line are just fine, but I'm not very fond of those.
Did you try any of these "1 seconde" nail polishes? What do you think of them?
 
Have a great monday!

Fifty shades of grey inspired nails

Hi,
I read the book Fifty shades of grey a while ago. I love the cover of the book and I wanted to do a manicure of it for a while now. I finally decided to give it a try, but well... it did not turned out as I wanted. :)
Enough of the talking, here is what I used: *Essence - Silver Twister
                                                                     *Catrice - Back to Black
                                                                     *Vollare black liner




 
Did you perhaps read the book? What did you think of it? I'm not quite sure what to think about it. I liked it in a way, but on the other hand, I read better ones.
What about the manicure, do you see any resemblance? :D

Deborah Milano - Celestial Sky

Hello,
I have another beautiful shade to show you. It's blue and it has a subtle silver shimmer in it.
The formula was a little watery, I used 2 coats, but I think that it would look even better with 3 coats. The application was easy and I love the brush (I prefer small brushes, because I don't have big nails).
The nail polish is from Deborah Milano (Prêt à porter) called Celestial Sky.

I am starting to love this mini nail polishes, they have a lot of great shades. Do you own any? What do you think of them?

 
Forgive me my cuticles, they are in a very bad condition lately, I guess the oil that I use is not working for me anymore. What do you use to maintain your cuticles?

Maybe I'm amazed, 'cause you're a heartbreaker Troy!

Hello everyone!
You won't believe what a clumsy person am I. And a little bit of an idiot too :D
I painted my nails a few days ago and I decided to take pictures first thing in the morning (like I always do). Well, that didn't happen, because one of them chipped when I woke up the next day. No big deal, I decided to do my nails in the evening again and do the same routine like I always do. In the morning I hit the doors and my nail broke. I was so angry - two manicures without taking pictures of it - that means no pictures for blog. I also have no energy to paint my nails, I am super tired these days, have terrible headache and I can't wait to go to sleep. I don't know if it's the weather or what.. Good thing, that it will be a beautiful and sunny week, hopefully things will get better :)

So today I am showing you a manicure that I have in my unpublished file.

I used: * Essence - You're a heartbreaker (index + ring finger)
            * Essence - Maybe I'm amazed (middle + pinky finger)
            * Essence - Troy (on top of those two nail polishes)

 





Have a great and peaceful week!

Essence - Very Berry + Opi - Sparrow me the Drama

Hello,

I got this striping tapes on ebay long time ago, but never tried them out. So I finally used them in a very simple manicure.

For a base I used Essence - Verry Berry and waited 'till it was completely dry. Then I added 2 lines of striping tape. Next I added a coat of Opi - Sparrow me the Drama, waited until it was dry and removed the tape.




Have a wonderful weekend!

Manhattan - 57U + Essence - Time for Romance

Hello!
I absolutely adore wine red colors this autumn and I wear them all the time. I just don't like taking pictures of them, because it's impossible to capture the right color. The color is a little darker than it looks on pictures.
Then I also decided to add a pop of glitter to this classic beauty :)

I used:
Manhattan Quick dry - 57U and Essence - Time for Romance


 
Do you like this combination, or do you prefer wearing reds alone?

Stone Cold Silver Twister :)

Hello ladies!

I would like to show you the manicure that I am currently wearing.
I used China Glaze - Stone Cold and Essence - Silver Twister with Konad m63 plate.

Here is the result:


I kind of like it, I only forgot to use some other top coat, because this one smudged the pattern a bit.
What do you think, yes or no? :)
