OPI Mariah Carey

HI!

Todays post will be in English and Slovenian language.

Že kar nekaj časa nazaj me je razveselil paket, ki sem ga prejela od čudovite ekipe iz ZaPikoNaI. Ponudili so mi Sleek Storm paleto in mini OPI set Mariah Carey. 
A long time ago I got a lovely package from Slovenian store ZaPikoNaI. They sent me Sleek Storm palette and OPI mini set from Mariah Carey collection.
Izdelke sem takoj stestirala, na žalost pa zaradi zelo natrpanega urnika nisem uspela vsega spraviti v elektronsko obliko. Danes je končno napočil dan, ko lahko z vami delim moje navdušenje. 
I was really busy so I wasn't able to write a decent post about my package.


Najvrjetneje vse navdušenke nad laki poznate trgovino ZaPikoNaI in kako prijazna je njihova ekipa, ampak sem se vseeno odločila, da napiše kratek hvalospev, ker si ga zaslužijo. 
Pri njih sem kupovala že velikokrat, saj so bili prvi v SLO s Konad šablonami, ter prodajajo mojo najljubšo znamko lakov China Glaze. Pri vsakem večjem nakupu so mojemu paketu dodali majhno darilce, ki me je zelo razveselilo.  Imajo tudi sistem kapljic, ki jih dobiš v obliki popusta, in ga lahko izkoristiš kadarkoli, tako da vedno kupuješ ceneje.
Že nekaj časa nazaj sem se odločila za nakup NfuOh lakov ravno dan preden so jim znižali ceno, ko sem to videla se bila zelo zelostna, ampak me je kmalu zatem zelo razveselilo njihovo sporočilo, saj so mi povedali, da bodo tudi moje izdelke zaračunali po akcijski ceni, kljub temu, da sem jih naročila en dan prej. 
Če pa imate na WL slučajno kakšen lak, ki ga nimajo  v spletni prodaji jim lahko tudi pišete, pa ga bodo naročili, in prišel bo pri naslednji pošiljki.

 Sedaj pa na slike OPI lakov, ki jih vse verjetno že precej nestrpno pričakujete:


OPI Stay The Night
Uporabila sem dve plasti laka, lak se je posušil zelo hitro.
I applied 2 coats it dried really fast.

OPI The Impossible
Nanesla sem 3 plasti, saj je lak šele pri 3 plasti dobil posebno globino, sušil se je hitro.
I used 3 coats, it dried really fast.

OPI Can't Let Go 
2 plasti, hitro sušenje, moj favorit v setu.
I used 2 coats, it dried fast. This is my favorite in this set.


OPI Get Your Number
2 plasti, lak se je prav tako sušil zelo hitro.
2 coats and fast drying time. 

OPI lake najdete tukaj, tale set in velike stekleničke pa tukaj.
You can find OPI polishes here, and Mariah Carey collection here.

Še moje izkušnje/mnenje o efektu "tekočega peska"
Sem oseba, ki jo ne navdušujejo bleščice in grobe teksture na nohtih. Tega seta si sama defenitivno nikoli nebi kupila, zato sem bila še toliko bolj vsesela, da sem ga dobila od ZaPikoNaI. Sedaj ko se stestirala vse 4 lake, morem povedati, da sem se motila. Ta efekt obožujem, laki so zelo obstojni zaradi mešanice bleščic in drugih drobnih delcev, tekstura je zelo zanimiv dodatek na nohtih, odstranjevanje pa ne preveč zahtevno glede na veliko količino bleščic. Najprej sem mislila, da se bo v to teksturo ujelo mnogo umazanije, ampak se ne. V prihodnosti si defenitivno kupi še kakšen lak s tem efektom.

My experience/opinion in liquid sand effect
I'm a person who hates glitter and bumpy things on nails, so I wasn't really thrilled when this collection was released and I definitely wouldn't buy it for myself, but I'm really glad I got it from ZaPikoNaI, because this finish turned out to be one of my favorite finishes. I like the rough feel under my fingertips, and I was constantly showing it to my friends =). They liked it too. The removal was quite fast, and wear time was awesome. Usually OPI stays on me for a day, but these lasted 4 ful days with minor tip wear =)- 

Kaj pravite, se vas prepričala? Že imate svojo stekleničko tekočega peska?
Do you like this finish? Do you already have your bottles of liquid sand?

P.S.
Ravno ko sem zaključila z objavo, sem na mail prejela novičke od ZaPikoNaI. Sedaj imajo na voljo tudi China Glaze Texture  kolekcijo!

Flormar v Sloveniji! (Flormar in Slovenia)

 Hi!

This post will be in SLO language again, because of a new store that recently opened and sells Flormar =). I promise I'll make it up too all of my international readers =). Soon there will be English posts only =). 

 Že kar nekaj časa nazj sem obiskala Flormar otoček v Supernovi na Rudniku, saj me je zelo zanimala ponudba izdelkov in predvsem cena, saj v večini primerov uvoženi kozmetiki zelo nabijejo ceno.S prodajalkama sem se dogovorila, da lahko poslikam njihove lake =). Bila sem res zelo presenečena, saj v nobeni trgovini ne dovolijo slikanja =)

Takole izgleda njihov kotiček:
Nahajajo se v Supernovi na Rudniku v LJ, v neposredni bližini drogerije Muller.

Seveda sem poslušala narediti čimbolj razločne slike odtenkov, na žalost ni mi najbolje uspelo, ampak mislim da se precej dobro vidi, da je lakov res ogromno =). Pa tudi cena se vidi=)







Trgovina ima tudi svojo FB stran, kjer pogosto objavljajo novosti in razne slike dekorative. 

Po res zelo dolgem izbiranju in premisleku sem kupila spodnja laka, saj sem se odločila, da ne smem kupiti več kot 2 =)
Lak iz linije Pretty sem že preiskusila, in morem reči da je zelo lep =)

Ker sem ravno čakala na razgovor za službo v sosednji trgovini, sem se potem malce zagovorila še z vizažistko Tamaro. Dala mi je kar nekaj koristnih nasvetov kar se tiče lakov, če bi pogovor nanesel še na področje ličil, bi pa vrjetno najin pogovor trajal še dlje časa.

Moje mnenje: 
Zelo prijazno in kvalificirano osebje, dobra kozmetika in ogromna izbira.  Cena je tudi zelo nizka, me je pa presenetilo, da je tako velika razlika med navadnimi laki in effect laku ( crackle, multichrome, matte).
Zelo sem zadovoljna =).

* Če je katera punca preveč oddaljena od LJ in si želi Flormar izdelke, lahko izdelke kupim jaz in jih pošljem, saj sem vsak teden v LJ =).*

Simpe office nails

Hi girls!

I wanted to show you my idea of office/ work appropriate nails =).
I took these picture in August 2012 and I haven't posted them before. My nails are currently really a mess so some times is really nice to have a backup picture =)

I used Look By Bipa Diamond Hardener 2 coats and Black Konad polish for stamping
I think I got my image from one unknown brand of stamping plates, but for all of you who like this image, you can also find it on Konad m3 IP.  



I know times changed and now vibrant colours on nails are really common these days , but for some jobs there still has to be a classic sheer/transparent manicure. Don't you agree?
My perfect job would be somewhere where I could wear anything I'd like =).
Do you have any problems with wearing vibrant colours  at your work?

Here is one very funny thought:
Many of you know that I study Chemistry, but I really don't talk about that a lot here =). My favourite part in chemistry is organic chemistry. Now you all probably think, great, go for it! But here's a little trick. In organic chemistry chemists use acetone, ethyl acetate and many other solvents on daily base. You can imagine what would that do to my freshly painted nails =). 

Do you have any problems with your nails/nail polish at work? 
Please share your toughs and experiences with me =)

Beauty UK "dusty pink"

Hi!

Today I'm going to show you one of my favourite Beauty UK polishes.
I probably already mentioned before, that I love Beauty UK polishes, because of their fast dry time and high shine, also price is really low.
The only thing I hate about them is the fact that polishes that are in sets don't have names of their own. I decided to call this one dusty pink!

This polish is from West End Girl set (see ful set here)


I applied 2 coats, no TC. Dry time was really fast.



Do you like it? I can't wait to wear this pretty again!

Felur de Sante olje za obnohtno kožico ( cuticle oil review)

Hi!
 
This post will be again mostly in slovenian language since I'll be reviewing items from SLO store.
 
Pozdravljene!
Dans vam bom predstavila še en izdelek, ki mi ga je poslala prijazna Ga. Mateja iz slovenskega Fleur de Sante konec februarja. Na žalost sem bila malce na tesnem s časom, tako da sem že precej pozna z opisom izdelka. Sem pa pa lahko v mesecu in pol res zelo dobro testirala in moram priznati, da je izdelek še boljši kot sem pričakovala. ampak več o tem kasneje....
 
 
Olje se nahaja v plastični tubici, ki zelo dobro tesni, zato je super za v torbico.
 
 
Tubica ima namesto konice čopič, ki omogoča zelo lahko nanašanje olja, količina olja pa se lahko zelo enostavno dozira s pritiskom na tubico.
 
 
Olje se zelo hitro vpija in ima super vonj, ki je precej nežen, zato ni moteč. Mojo obnohtno kožico super nahrani.
 
Takšni so moji nohti pred nanosom olja...
 
...in takole minuto po nanosu in vmasiranju olja v kožico.
 
Zaključek:
Nad izdelkom sem zelo navdušena, saj se olje zelo hitro vpije, in nima močnega vonja, mojo kožico pa zelo nahrani. Najbolj od vsega mi je pa všeč ravno embalaža, saj je zelo priročna in primerna za v torbico, tako da sedaj nimam več izgovorov za slabo odnohtno kožico =).
Idelek ni testiran na živalih! Prav tako so vsi izdelki FdS narejeni v EU, kar pomeni, da upoštevajo EU standarde in imajo s tem bolj stroge normative in bolj kakovostne sestavine.
Ko porabim to tubico, si gotvo priskrbim novo =)
 
Izdelek najdete tukaj za 5,99€
 
Tukaj je še njihov opis sestavin:
Mandelj izboljša polt in ohranja sijaj. Dobro je poznan po intenzivnem vlaženju in hranilnih sposobnostih. Jojoba zagotavlja celodnevno vlaženje, ki kožo naredi mehko in gladko. Avokado je najboljši sadni vir bistvenega vitamina E in nudi vlaženje ter ima hranilno moč.
 
 
 For my international readers:
 
This cuticle oilr is really practical, because it does not leak, and it is easy to apply with this tiny brush. I have it in my bag all the time. It absorbs pretty fast so this makes it even better =). I'd really recomand this cuticle oil to all of my readers, because it is moisurizing, it absorbs fast, it has practical packaging and it is made in EU, where normatives are quite high. Fleur de Sante also does not test on animals!

Gradient hearts tutorial

Finally!
It was about time to publish this tutorial I promised more than a month ago.
Firstly I'd like to say, that this is not my idea. I saw it on YouTube ( click HERE), and because I really liked I decided to make a tutorial, with slightly different method.
*Because I had some issues with copyright I made a little bit different colour combination than in my previous post*
 
Here is the look I made:
 
Things you'll need:
-sponge
-scissors
-tape
-1 light nail polish and 3 for the gradient
-pen
-a bit of patience!
 
Now, let's get this nail party started!!!
 
Start off with light colour base!
 
I decided for Orly Pure Porcelain:
 
 
Prepare your protective/duct tape!
 
 Follow steps from 1-4
 
Step 1: Fold one end of tape, to get one none sticky end. It will come in handy when you'll try to "open the heart"
 
Step 2. Stick tape on your hand. Tape will lose a bit of stickiness, this lowers the possibility of ending up with glue residues on your nail, and prevents damaging base colour.
 
Step 3: Fold tape in half and draw half of heart on it. Cut it out!
 
Step 4: Unfold and paste tape on your nail. Try to put it in the middle. I think I've never succeeded =).
 
 
Prepare for the gradient!
 
I used China Glaze Ahoy, Revlon scented Mad about Mango and BarryM Peach Melba
Follow steps from 5-7
 
Apply gradient on your nails!
 
I did 2 coats of sponging, here is a picture after fist sponging:
 
Remove tape when sponging is still wet!
 
 
I was in a hurry when I made this tutorial, and because I haven't waited long enough my colour base is damaged because base was still a bit wet. Thank God for top coats!
 
Apply top coat!
 
 
 
As you can see, it didn't end up perfectly. Hearts are everywhere but in the middle, and my ring finger heart is completely crocked! I still like this gradient heart look despite that. Will you try it?

Color Candy 29 with Konad

Hi girls!
 
Today I'm going to show you how I upgraded Color Candy 29 from Born Pretty Store that I showed it to you in one of my previous posts. (here).
 
I used Konad special polish in black and m61 IP
Here is the end result:
 
You can see that not even one of my nails is perfectly stamped! I think this never happened to me in a very log time. I really should start practicing stamping more often.
 
 
And because I still can't get enough of glow in the dark effect, here is a picture of how it glows in the dark with m61 pattern:
 
 
Do you like it?
 
 
 
 
* My most loyal readers probably noticed that I fielded at my challenge ( the one with at least 3 posts per week and I "only" had 3 back up weeks). I really wanted to publish at least 3 posts last week, but blogger stopped working on my Google Chrome and I never toughed to go check it with Internet Explorer, because I never use it. Today I was really angry because it still didn't work and then it flashed me, that is probably Chrome, so I'm writing this post now with Internet Explorer.
Because I failed my challenge I should stop blogging for good and sell almost all of my polishes! I changed my mind for now, instead I decided I'll publish 5 post this week, just to make it up for previous week. I hope you don't mind that: =)*
 
Have a lovely day and I hope you enjoyed your Easter holidays!
