I have to confess that my love for nail polishes in 2010 got so much stronger! I can’t say that I was a fan of nail polishes in the past. This is probably the only thing that changed since I’ve started my blog almost 2 years ago.
I’ve actually bought more nail polishes in the last year than in all the years before 2010. I am obviously not as obsessed as the nail polish bloggers who are also responsible for my new love, but for my standards I’ve got quite a lot of nail polishes and I plan to get even more in 2011.
I can’t say that I’ve tried all the brands on the market ( mostly because some are hard to get for me) but from what I’ve tried – the winners are…
Illamasqua Nail Varnish
These are (£13) amazing nail varnishes: they are opaque with only one coat and stay on for a long time. Plus the colours are so, so beautiful.
By the way, I am wearing the Alarm Nail Varnish as I am typing this.

I’ve already posted about the new Benefit Cosmetics Full Finish lipsticks which look really nice if you ask me. The thing is that I’ve had the old version of their lipsticks for a long time now. For some reason I never wrote a review which is strange because I really like these lipsticks.
So here it is today… Please mind that I have an old version of the lipstick but Benefit seems to keep both shades or at least they are still available. I’ll find that out.
The shades that I have are called: Lady’s Choice (naturally nude) and No Competition (heathered plum). I have minis which were a part of a set I’ve bought last year. I have to say that I really love Benefit sets because you can try so many products without spending too much.
This is how they look like swatched on the hand. I’d say that Lady’s Choice is a warm nude and No Competition is a beautiful plumy shade which I personally like much better.
I liked these lipsticks, the quality isRead More
