Another drag marbling design

 Because I'm on the sea, I was in the mood for something sea like :-) I used Essence Forget-me-not for my base color. It's from Essence blossoms etc. limited edition. Unfortunately I couldn't captured the light blue shine in it, but its very beautifull lilac color. I applied two coats of it. It has a cream finish and as I said, with a light blue shine in it.
 And for the design I used two S-he stylezone colors- 285 and 290. The inspiration for this design came from a fellow blogger Colette and one of her recent designs. She used different colors, and  I used different shades of blue, because the sea was my inspiration.
 This kind of manicure is very simple to do (I recommend to watch her video ). All you need is a dotting toll and a tooth pick or a wooden stick or something with a point.
 All you have to do is make shure your base color is still wet, than apply a couple of dots (I went for two shades) and do a swirly motion with a orange stick trought them.
Apply some top coat (I use Seche Vite) and you're done. Like it? I DO!!!!

Camouflage colour SNB green

 This polish I got a while back within a swap. I never heard about this brand and when I googled it, I didn't get any website or anything similar for it, just a couple of pictures. Althought I love the color, I'm dissapointed with the formula.
 After a couple of hours wearing it, my tips were already showing trough. I like the brush and the color, dark SNB green color with gold shimmer in it and I applied two coats of it, because it's very sheer.
Well, this one I wore only for a day, because of the tips showing... Not recommending it, unfortunately :-(

Drag marbling

In one of my previous swaps I recieved this gorgeous neon orange color, with an interesting, kind of a matt finish :-) I have never seen matt neon color, so this one first for me....
I applied two coats, because it's a bit too sheer for my taste, but for the design I had in mind that was fine. It's from NAIL SAVVY. Never heard of them :-)
 Well, I went for drag marbling and I used S-he 315 for the marlbe color. And in case if you are not familliar with drag marble design, it's much easier and way less messy than the water marble.
 With a dotting toll I applied four drops of the green randomly on my nails (just make shure that the base color is still wet, so the best is to do one nail at a time), that I took a orange stick and drag from one drop, trough the other ones. And this is the final look. I finished it with top coat.

Orly Bailamos

 Today I just couldn't decide what to put on my nails... Than I remembered on this polish, I recieved within my last swap I did on MakeupAlley (Here are my items if you are interested in swapping with me: my swap items )- Orly Bailamos. I love this polish. I always liked ORLY polishes, because of their formula, brush and variety of colors.
 This one popped up in my eyes, because of the beautifull blue color, that reminds me of the sea... Yeah, summer is coming and I'm already in the seaside in my mind :-) So, this one is a blue polish with  a hint of light green shine in it.
The formula is great, on the picture you see two coats and the brush is perfect for three strokes application. What do you want more from a polish :-) ?
 Than I decided to do a little nail art, very simple and quick....
I took a dotting tool, S-he 290 and draw 5 dots on each nail, waited to become  a bit thacky and than draw a line in each dot, to create a flower, placed a blue rhinestone in the middle... And VIOLA!

S-he stylezone #305

 Today I have another S-he stylezone polish from my last purchase for you. Is the exact dupe for Sinful Colors Innocent! I didn't realize that before the application, but then with my nails done I picked up the bottle of Sinful and they were the same :-)
This one has a cream finish, light green color. I don't like the formula as much as the Sinfull one, but ok, I can handle it. Why, you ask? It's too watery and just not thick enough for my taste.  So, what do you think of the color?

 They also came with eyelash glue to put them over your lashes.
 This is the product I also love and adore. This is brow sculpting gel to set your brows, after you fill them in and trim them, to keep them in place all day.
 And she also sent me this amazing self- tanning mousse, that smells absolutley like chocolate. When I pumped out for couple of times, this amazing smell came out that just reminded me so much of cup of hot chocolate!

 Too bad I can't use this right now, because I'm no tan at the moment, but after tanning for a while, I will definitely use this to keep my tan for longer time.
Here is the link to this amazing store where you can find all the items! AIIBEAUTY

S-he stylezone #310

First one of new S-he polishes I would like to present to you is this gorgeous green color, #310. The color on this pictures is not 100% accurate, but it's pretty close. In real is slightly lighter shade. Well, is like it :-) I also like the brush, is easy to handle.

But unfortunatley I'm not qte satisfied with the formula. It's a bit to runny for my taste. I would love it even better if it would be more compact, just a bit thicker. But it's ok, you can see that doesn't ruin the application. I applied two coats of polish, because the first coat it's a bit sheer.
The polish has a cream finish, but I can see lighter shade green shimmer in it, but it's more visible in the bottle, than on the nails. Too bad.... Any ideas for the design over this one?

Huge DM haul!!!

 Today I recieved my first paycheck and I treated myself a bit :-) I went to my favorite drugstore DM and spent some money :-) Some of the items I needed because I run out of them and some just jumped in to my shopping card :-)
 First of all, when did s-he stylezone comlety re-do their items?!? Where were I? I was totally shocked when I saw all items in new packaging and in the middle was some items like limited edition? Let me know if you know something about this! Well, I grabed these five polishes from the limited edition (if that's what it is).
 First I went for the greens, because I'm big sucker for green polishes... I'm a bit sad that polishes still don't have any names, only numbers.. Well, from left they are 305, 310 and 315. They all look gorgeous. 305 is cream, light green color; 310 is also cream with a hint of darker shade green shine in it, lime green color and the 315 is darker green, shimmer finish.
 Well, this two also cought my eye, first is 290, dark blue shimmer finish and right one is 285 light blue cream finish. The brush looks promising, I like the packaging and you can expect some swatchs soon :-)
 Than I finally got this two new image plates from Essence- the one with zebra print and the one with bubbles. Can't wait to try them out!
 Well, this two products are my favorite moisturizers- one for my lips- BLISTEX lipbalm and the other DR. SHELLER handcream.
 This two are my favorite removers- nail polish remover from Essence (aceton free and smells delicious!) and makeup remover from L'OREAL (doesn't irritate my eyes!)
 Well, I didn't have any eyeshadow for filling in my eyebrows so I decided to give this one from Essence a go and we'll see how it turnes out!
 Here is something for my african soul, this bracelet I've been eying for a while and today they still had two and one jumped in to my cart :-)
 I needed new eyelash curler and I went with this one from Elite.
 And this manicure kit was only for my soul :-) I had 50% off coupon and I saw very interesting cuticle pusher in it and thought why not :-) If you want to do more detailed review on it, please leave a comment.
Well, just a bit of shopping :-)

Striped design feat. Essence TRYIN' TO BE COOL&COOL AND THE GANG

 Today I have a funky striped manicure for your feat. two new polishes from Essence. First is this gorgeous bright blue with a hint of green polish called TRYIN' TO BE COOL. Both of those two are from multi dimension XXXL shine line.
 This one has a cream finish, it's super easy to apply, fast drying... Well both are. And the second one is this indigo blue one COOL AND THE GANG.
 Well, but first I went over TRYIN' TO BE COOL with only flakies polish I have GLISTEN UP (we already all know, right :-) ? ) which is extra hard to capture flakes on the pictures. But anyways...

 Than I used scotch taped tehnique and applied COOL AND THE GANG, used scotch one more time and applied BLACK OUT from BLACK&WHITE collection, also from ESSENCE. 
 Cool looking right???
