China glaze It's alive (Haunting Halloween collection 2011)


Boy am I late with this polish? Yes, it came out in 2011 :)

China glaze It's Alive is dusty green jelly filled with hexagon and round green glitter. It's completely opaque in two thin coats and very easy to work with. The name is quite fitting since it does eat top coat like crazy :) I think it's a perfect choice for tonight but I can see how some people wouldn't like this polish :)

Happy Halloween to everyone, have fun and eat some candy <3

Halloween mani (Nail2Express collaboration)


At the moment my nails would be Halloween appropriate on their own, broken and bruised :D Since I started my job at the beginning of this month my hands have taken a bit of a beating. All the breakage details go on my Instagram or Facebook page so check them out if you're feeling sadistic. But Halloween is my favourite holiday so I had to do a themed mani. This year I teamed up with the talented Katja from Nail2Express. Thanks again Katja for considering me, I'm truly flattered <3
Katja decided to go for black and gold theme (go check her mani here) and I went with a vampy theme.

For the base I used Essence Take my red away form Legends of the sky trend edition. Gradient was made with L'Oreal Laetitia and Essence Black is back. For the damask stamp I used my fave stamping plate MoYou Fashionista 07 and Konad Black.
I'm most proud of my middle finger :D This was my first attempt with acrylic paint and free-hand drawing. It's not perfect but I think it still looks good. I am currently still wearing this mani but it won't last on me till Halloween. I will probably do the same mani as last year, quick and easy (click)

Bloggers unite: Pink October


As you all know, October is breast cancer awareness month. This year, Slovenian bloggers decided to commemorate it by posting a pink post today (I'm a bit late as always *.*)
My mani is pink and cute but sadly there is nothing cute about breast cancer. Breast cancer is the type of cancer that causes the most deaths annually among women and it can happen to any of us. So I cannot stress enough how important self examination is. It's never too early to start and if you're not already practicing it, here is a link with more information (click). For all the patients out there, keep on fighting! <3

For this mani I used OPI Koala bear-y, Kiko multi effect 03 Cupcake Rose & Starry Crimson, Flormar glitter GL02 and MoYou Biker collection 05 stamping plate.

Catrice It's a very berry bash

The color that absolutely screams Autumn is red ❤ Maybe that explains why I've been wearing it so much lately :) Catrice It's a very berry bash is a perfect example. This gorgeous red creme was a part of the Catrice goody bag we received at the Beautiful Blogger Meetup
I must admit I stayed clear of Catrice polish but It's a very berry bash might change that. The formula is amazing and it looks like they actually fixed the brush, which was the biggest problem for me.
It's a very berry bash is a dark plumy red, with thin yet pigmented formula. It's very glossy on it's own but I added fast drying topcoat
The lasting power is amazing as well. I've been super busy and I didn't have the time/will to change my polish. Luckily there was no need for it, on day 6 I only had some minor tipwear. Then I tore my nail and I had to remove nail polish so that I could glue my nail back together #GlueKeepsMyLifeTogether
If you're on a lookout for a staple Autumn polish then I strongly recommend It's a very berry bash.

Review: Lace stickers


Sometimes you have to face your fears even if that means using stickers on your nails. I try to stay clear from them because my nail bed are very curved. Too be honest, it's more a mistake than bravery :) While I was browsing Lady queen site I was thinking they were water decals (which I like). You can imagine my surprise when I got them in the mail :) Nevertheless I think the final mani looks good ❤ I decided to go with a nude and black mix-and-match mani (are these skittles by definition?). Polishes I used are Essie Topless&barefoot and Essence Black is back. The downside of lace stickers is that they come in strips and you have to cut them yourself. It's a bit annoying but on the other hand it gives you unlimited options how to use them. The stickers itself are very thin and a bit stretchy so you can press them to the shape of your nail. They stick nicely to the nail, I added top coat out of habit and this mani lasted me the usual four days.

Beautiful Bloggers Meetup konferenca


Po dolgem času spet objava v slovenščini :)
Kot pove že naslov, vam bom danes opisala dogodek, ki ga udeležene blogerke verjetno še dolgo ne bomo pozabile. 2.10. se je namreč v Grand Hotelu Union odvila prva (in upam, da ne zadnja) Beautiful Bloggers Meetup konferenca, ki jo je organizirala soblogerka Nika Veger z bloga Beautyfullblog. Z objavo malo zamujam, sama se v silni vnemi doma pozabila baterije za fotoaparat, moj telefon pa dela slike, kot da bi slikala s krompirjem :D Nekaj slik sem si tako izposodila pri Gin
