I’ve been meaning to get this GOSH nail polish for quite a long time but it was sold out all the time. Finally it is mine, I’ve got the last bottle by the way.
I never had a holographic nail polish before so I was mesmerized by this one and instead of working I was staring at my nails most of the time.
Isn’t it beautiful?
But my problem was that by the mid of the day my nail polish did not look as nice as it was supposed to look. Later I read on the bottle that due to a special formula one should wear a 565 Fix Base Coat. Yes, I was so excited to try this nail polish that haven’t noticed that before.
I am a bit surprised that one should use a special base coat not a top coat, but I am not a nail polish expert. Next time I will definitely try the proper application. I had to remove my nail polish on the other day because it looked to bad.
I am not sure if all holographic nail polishes are like this or only this one though. I don’t like the staying power but I really like the effect.
I am actually happy that these days we don’t see that many crackle nail polishes any more. I can’t say that I liked the trend and would probably wear very few colours (I wouldn’t mind a gold crackle).
But do you know what happens when one trend is gone? The other one appears! Looks like the new trend in nail polishes = magnetic nail polishes.
Here is just an example from LCN.
I have got these eye shadows last May so I am not sure why I am writing about them only now. But it is better late then never. Rejoice lovers of bright summer makeup looks as this post is for you!
I have picked my shadows at US Sephora for $19 each (they cost £14.95 in the UK).
The shades that I have chosen are:
- Yellow 2 (matte brilliant yellow)
- Orange Coral Matte 5 (matte vibrant coral)
- Apple Green 91 (matte bright yellow green)
And I would love even more shades for e.g Neon Pink 75 (bright fuchsia pink), Turquoise Matte 72 (matte vibrant turquoise), Matte Blue 159, Purple 92 (matte brilliant purple) and many, many more.
I know that a lot of people are scared of such colours but there is no reason to be! I find that if the rest of your face is natural you can easily pull off any of the shades that I have. I love encouraging my friends to try bold colours and I would love to encourage my readers as well! After all, it is just makeup and you can always take it off!
This is how the eye shadows look like in the pans.
So now I will tell you about each shade in more details and will
Let’s take a look at Clarins Fall 2011 makeup collecction.
Color Definition 3D Radiance Face Powder, $35
“An exceptionally soft lightweight powder that melts into the skin for a naturally radiant complexion. The colour combination of beige, pink and peach gives the face a radiant boost.”
- Nudes: A must-have mix of sophisticated cream and woods paired with shimmering coral.
- Rosewoods: Glamorous pairings of sheer chocolates and pinks for a casual kind of chic.
- Pastels: A painterly palette of delicate neutrals, with a hint of cool mint, for a flirty eye.
Along with the High Impact lipsticks by Daniel Sandler I’ve also got the Luxury Lipstick (£13.30) to try out.
I have a gorgeous shade called Temptress (love the name) which is a true and beautiful red.
I like the simple yet elegant design of the lipstick and the fact that the price is not as high as some other brands’ lipsticks.
It is said that Luxury Lipsick contains Folic acid lip and hyaluronic acid to plump and moisturize the lips. I have to say that I like the formula as it glides on easily and looks beautiful on the lips, it is not drying at all.
