OPI Nordic Nail Polish Collection for Fall 2014

Is it possible not to fall in love with this new collection from OPI! Just look at those stunning images. Some of them are very Frejya-esque.  Beautiful blonde with long braided hair and piercing icy blue eyes in cool-toned clothes and stunning silver jewelry…I’ve got a bit carried away, after all I wrote my final work for uni about Scandinavian culture.

Anyway, I am very pleased to see a collection dedicated to Scandinavia, if you did not notice that already.

Favourite Beauty Products of 2012: Nails

The list of my favourite makeup products  of 2012  was too long already for me to include nail products, too.So here is a separate one.

I’ve decided to be very strict with myself and choose only two nail polishes, one for SS and the other for AW as, otherwise, I would just go on, and on…

OPI Every Month Is Oktoberfest

This is a gorgeous colours, when I saw the promo photo, I knew I had to get it. But when I saw the first swatches on-line, I’ve ordered it as soon as it was available.  OPI have a lot of beautiful complex dark nail polishes and Every Month Is Oktoberfest  is one of them. I wear mine a lot, in fact, I have it on as I type. See it on my nails here.

 Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Nomad

And this was my favourite SS nail polish, such a perfect jade colour. There are a lot of  variations of jade from different brands, but I think this is my favourite.  Plus I am a big fan of Illamasqua’s nail varnishes. By the way, I had it on my toes during my summer holiday. And here is manicure with this shade.

As for other products, I have to mention
