The Ever-Changing Beauty Routine

Recently I was thinking about how my beauty habits and preferences changed over years… Looks like one of the best examples for that would be my nails.

I used to love really long and square shaped nails. On the first photo, which is from 2010, where I am wearing OPI’s Baby It’s Coal Outside,  they are not that long but you get the idea. The thought of cutting and filing down my nails  back then was horrifying.

My Top 3 Blue Nail Polishes

Recently I was re-organizing my beauty products and realized that I have quite a few blue nail polishes. In fact, considering that I have around 100 in general, 14  is not a small number.

Actually I am not a collector [when it comes to lacquers] and try to make sure that I don’t have a dupe before buying a new bottle and the photo below actually proves my point. Can you see that they all are very different?

So I have decided to show you my top 3:

Rimmel Lycra PRO Nail Polish in Blue Vogue

This is a gorgeous deep shimmering navy blue, such a chic and sophisticated shade, in my opinion.  I really love the formula which is

Nails of the Day: Maybelline Punky Orange

So this is the 4th Maybelline nail polish that I got. It is called Punky Orange and it is a beautiful pastel coral shade which looks amazing in a bottle.

But to get this shade on the nails – you’d need at least 3 layers and yet I can’t say that it’s opaque.  The colour is beautiful but I don’t like to have so many coats of nail polish on my nails.

LCN Speed Dry Top Coat Review

I wanted to try a new (story of my life with all those new products) top coat, and I’ve decided to get LCN  Speed Dry this time, as I’ve never tried anything from the brand before. And, as you could see from my April Favourites post – I really like it.

LCN  Speed Dry Top Coat Review

I have been using it for several weeks already and here is what I’ve noticed – it does make the nail polish dry a lot faster. It also adds shine and gives you that “salon” manicure look. But my favourite thing about this top coat is that it doesn’t add that extra

Nails Of The Day: Essie Nail Polish in Over The Knee

The other day I found myself looking at the display with Essie nail polishes and thinking that I want at least ten shades. But I’ve promised myself that I will get only one. And no matter how hard it was, I am proud of myself that I actually kept my word and got only one shade.

I went home with Over the Knee nail polish which is described as a a shimmering cocoa brown on the website.

I thought that it would be a great every day nail polish. And it is! It is a very beautiful medium brown nail polish with a delicate shimmer which would go with pretty much everything.

I really like  the shade and the quality; the application is nice but can be a bit streaky. Over The Knee looks nice with two coats and I also like the glossy finish of this nail polish.

I  have to mention that several people commented on it and asked about the name of the shade I was wearing.
