MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

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.

Nails Of The Day: Zoya Nail Lacquer in Tamsen

Believe it, or not,  this is my first ever Zoya nail polish. It was actually a present from a friend, who remembered that I wanted one. What a pleasant surprise!

I love red nail polishes, as you probably all know, and was very happy that I did not have a similar shade. The one I have is called Tamsen, which is described as medium warm brick red with strong orange tones.

I am not exactly a big fan of warm toned orangey reds, but this is a nice autumnal variant with  a

I wanted to try Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polishes for some time, as I’ve heard so many great things about the range. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a shade that I would really want. But… when I’m in doubt – I go for red. This is how I got 11 Style in Rouge.

Plus I like the wide brush which allows you to save time on the application, too. Plus it’s easy to control (the brush) and you don’t get the nail polish all over the place.

As for the shade - 11 Style in Rouge is a gorgeous bright warm red. Perfect shade to brighten up dull weather & mood. Although I like cool toned or classic reds, this one is

Here is the promised review of the Collistar’s Gloss Nail Lacquer Gel Effect. Although there are quite a few shades to choose from  – 571 Blu Grintosa instantly caught my attention and I knew that I had to get get.

And I am not disappointed.  It is a gorgeous blue colour which looks opaque and glossy with only one coat, and you can see it for yourself on the photo above (without a top coat).

I like the application and the formula, I only wish the

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.
