It feels like I haven’t posted Nails Of The Day feature in ages. The reason? I have been wearing shellac for months, but I did feature some shades on my Instagram.
But it feels good to post a good ol’ classic, if you wish, post. It actually brings a lot of memories. I remember how my male friends were reading these features on Makeup4all out loud and found it absolutely hilarious that I would spend my time taking photos of my manicure an put it on-line. Oh well…
But back to the nail polish in question which is Vinylux by CND. It is supposed to last for the whole week, and it does have a very impressive staying power. I have actually featured a black shade some time ago.
As for Cityscape it is aRead More
One of my favourite things about beauty is the ability to change your routine according to your mood and preferences. Some time ago I’ve posted about the different nails shape and length I’ve had during the years, and today I want to share about my current obsession which is long almond-shaped manicure.
I am not entirely sure where this came from but several weeks ago, I’ve decided that I want my nails to look this way, I was even considering stiletto [shape] but that is not very practical in real life.
So here is just a picture of the latest two manicures I’ve had this month. The redRead More
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.
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 usedRead More
I have realized that it’s been a while since I had a black manicure. It’s one of my favourites plus I am always in the mood for black – so I did get one last week.
I was curious about CND Vinylux Weekly Polish, so it was time to try it, finally. And here are the results!
Since I’ve tried it in the salon, I can’t really comment on the application, since the girl that I see there is awesome, and she makes everything look like magic. But it did look smooth and opaque with two applications.
As for the finish,Read More
Regular readers know that I am a huge fan of red nail polishes, and I am actually very picky, there are not that many that I truly like. My favourite is actually Revlon’s Red, it is a bright true red, not dull, but not neon, not warm toned, but not too cool – it’s a timeless classic.
But I’ve managed to find another red which I love as much, as Revlon. It is Marc Jacob’s Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola. You can see it, freshly applied, here.
But on the photo below is manicure with Lola after a week, that’s why it doesn’t look i’t best! It is with a top coat, since without it the nail polish doesn’t last for the whole week. But still impressive, right? There are very few nail polishes that last that well on me.
I love this nail polish so much that I would talk about it with everyone who would listen, ha!
- Look at that design! It’s the coolest nail polish bottle I’ve ever seen. When I saw the promo photos for the first time – I knew that it had to be mine.
