Art Deco no.348

This is my only ArtDeco nail polish and I absolutly love it. Great, suddle color. I would say it's a pearl white color with some gold undertones. This one would be great for french manicure (with white tips under). It doesn't have any shimmer or glitters in it, but it's very shinny!
Only bad thing about it is application. It's a little bit tricky, but an experienced hand would do it just great! It's a little striky, so two or even three coats are necessary. I wear two coats, but next time, I will apply at least three. 
I abosluty love the brush. It's wide, so with three strokes you cover entire nail surface. The brush has short bristles, so you have a lot of control with the application. 
I also love the color very much, it's appropriate for work or school. It would also work great with KONAD or rhinestones.
This is definetly not my last Art Deco nail polish!

China glaze Paper Chasing

Here I am with another polish to present. This is another newest polishes I have and I have to admit I'm a little bit dissapointed. I absolutly LOVE the color, it's bright, vibrant, loud color (green, I love green!), but I'm dissapointed in the formula of the polih. It's very sheer. Although I applied two coats, this polish needs at least three coats or even more to show its true color.
The application goes on smoothly, doesn't show any strokes. It has very delicat light green shimmer  (not a problem to remove), but I believe this polish will not last more than three days on or so. 
Although I applied two coats, the tips of my nails are still showing trough and that's what I don't like at polishes. But I love the color so much, that the next time I'll use it, I'm going to apply at least three coats.

Essence TE Cute as hell Naughty but nice

I finally recieved two of nail polishes from Cute as Hell Trend edition from Essence and I just had to try it out. So, I decided first to try out Naughty but nice- yellow polish.
I love the color, it's kind a creamy neon color, very different from any other yellow I have. It's almost like mixed with a little bit of white, so it looks like very gentile yellow color, awsome for the spring.
I'm very pleased with the color, but not so much with the application. I don't know what it is, is it the brush or the formula of the polish... It doesn't go on very smoothly, but it's kind of streaky application. I have two coats on and the second one gave me the resoult I wanted. With the fist coat, I couldn't get it even and the strokes of the brush were very visible. But anyways, I love the color, so it's wotrh the effort :-)

Essie Carousel coral

This is only my second ESSIE nail polish and I have to admit that I'm in love in it! I also have a CHINCHILLY and MATTE ABOUT YOU top coat.
This one is awsome peachy coral color! In the bottle looks more pink than coral and I thought I'm gonna hate it (I don't like pink at all!), but I gave it a chance and after the first stroke I changed my mind! I absolutly love it! I applied two coats to achive really opake color. It glades on smoothly, no strokes are showing. The brush is just the right size to achieve perfect application in three strokes. But as I said, I applied two coats.
This color is appropriate for everyday use, because it's not so loud and it's not a big statement color. It's appropriate for work, school or with some added details (rhinestones or Konad) also for some special occasion. 

I added my favorite top coat (yes, it's Seche Vite :-) ) and voila, I'm done!

China glaze- Metallic muse

I recently bought a couple of new nail polishes from China glaze and this I absolutley LOVE! As you see I drasticly shorten my nails, so for a while I won't be doing any dramatic nail designs...I'll just wear simple nail polishes...

This one is from KHROME collection, besides Millennium, Sci-fi, Robotica, 2030 and Hi-tek polishes.
It is a blue- green with metal finish polish. It glides on smoothly, I applied it with three strokes. Maybe for inexperienced hand it takes a while to achieve perfect application, but with a  little practice you can do it!
I really like the color, it so different from anything else I have, so I just adore it! It gives kind of metal look to your nails...
It's easy to remove, just with regual nail polish remover (not 100% aceton as for glitter polishes)
I like it, do you?
Till next time, ciao!

Royal gold design

Here I am with a new design. I played around a little bit with this one. And I like it, do you?
Well, I started  with my NAILTEK Foundation 2 as my base coat. After a couple of seconds, I applied my first coat of ESSENCE Spicy, waited a couple of minutes and than applied second coat.
Than I used my newest nail polish from CHINA GLAZE called SOLAR FLARE. It's a clear nail polish with gorgeous gold glitters! I was pretty generous with it, as you see on the picture. I let it to dry for about 10 minutes.

Than I used also one of my favorite nail products- ESSIE MATTE ABOUT YOU!
And the resault is royal beauty :-)))) This design is a big statement, maybe not suitable for anyone, but for me definetly is :-) Well, do you?
