Nails of the Day: OPI Midnight in Moscow

I am wearing  Midnight in Moscow by OPI. This is a nail polish from Fall 2007 Russian collection.

OPI describes it this way:

“Be ready to step out at Midnight in Moscow with this elegant OPI Russian Midnight in Moscow Nail Lacquer. The colour is a graceful charcoal with a hint of maroon glimmer that will dazzle any watching eye.”

And I just love this shade because it’s so beautiful. It looks different from different angles:

  • black
  • brown
  • shimmery burgundy

It also looks different in different light!

I’ve took a lot of photos because it was pretty hard to capture the true beauty of this shade but this one looks close to the real life. I am wearing 2 coats of nail polish and no top coat.

And what do you think of such shades? What nail polish are you wearing today? I’ve noticed that I am getting more and more interested in nail polishes and my small collection is getting bigger.

Nails Of The Day: ncLA Nail Wraps in I am Your Muse

I have never tried nail wraps before so was kind of excited to get ncLA ones from Zuneta as a Christmas gift. Thank you!

Although  I love simple nails, this design, called I am Your Muse, is right up my street, as it is red base with black lace. And this could not be more me…

Here is how the set looks like, you get get a nail file, besides the wraps.

How to apply?

Use base coat, wait until it is dry, apply a wrap (make sure it’s all smooth), remove the excess with the nail file, add a top coat.

As I have never used nail wraps before, I have nothing to compare ncLA to. But I really

Nails Of The Day: Max Factor Max Effect in 45 Fantasy Fire

Last week I was sorting out my nail polish collection, and realized that I never posted about the nail polish (and several other) which I’ve bought over a year ago, and which was a huge  back then.

And I am talking about Max Factor’s Max Effect in 45 Fantasy Fire.

Max Factor Max Effect Nail Polish in 45 Fantasy Fire nail of the day

It is a sheer and very complex blueish purple with reddish shimmer. A total beauty! I even did not paint my nails red this week, just to wear this…

Above you can see me wearing four shades of it. Yes, that is a lot of effort, but luckily those layers are thin and dry very quickly so you don’t have to wait for hours. I have also used

Nails Of The Day: Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Nomad

Recently I received several products from Illamasqua’s SS 2012 Human Fundamentalism collection so today I want to show you the nail polish in Nomad.

I love Illamasqua nail varnishes and this has to be one of my favourites. I absolutely adore everything about it!

The colour is just perfect, a beautiful jade creme finish which is opaque with only one coat. The formula is lovely, it goes on smoothly and is non-streaky; Nomad looks amazingly beautiful on the nails!

Mavala Extra-Mild Nail Polish Remover Review. Rave

I love me a  gel nail polish, and I envy those girls who can wear gels non stop but after having had them for a few months without a break I had to stop for a while, as my nails were getting weak and just flaky.

But I also do love a good ol’ red nail polish so don’t mind  painting the nails myself occasionally.  But since then I had to start getting into base/top coats/cuticle oil/ you name it. And I also had to purchase a nail varnish remover.

It escapes me why on earth  I have never tried anything decent. I’ve always went for those cheap acetone based ones. But this time I’ve decided to try something milder, and
