This week I was looking for the perfect nail polishes everywhere. I found some shades that I loved and HAD to buy them 😉 When I came home I wanted to find out what new collections we will see this summer and wanted to share it with you of course !
So here we go:
Opi Summer Flutter
- Wing It!
- Catch Me in Your Net
- Flit a Bit
Amazing promo picture but I am afraid that I like only the orange shade.
Beach bound jetsetters can now reach the pinnacle of resort-inspired style with this newest limited-edition collection by essie. The Resort Collection was created to mimic the sights and sounds of the world’s most exotic destinations. The four colors are must-have accessories for any tropical vacation and the only escape for your hands and feet that doesn’t require a passport.
- Lapis Of Luxury – a dreamy ocean blue
- Splash Of Grenadine – a playful magenta pink
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.
The shades are:
Can’t a Fjörd Not To, Whatever it takes, get your hands on this extravagantly creamy coral!
Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm?, Stock up! This icy blue-violet is in hot demand!
Going My Way or Norway? No two ways about it… this caramel is delicious!

As for OPI, their newest seasonal collection is inspired by Venice and includes the following shades:
Best of Beauty Master List. After testing thousands of beauty products, Allure named their 182 undisputed favorites. I’ve picked some items from the list and I will tell you why these products. My list was too long so I divided it into 2 parts: Part 1 about makeup and nails and Part 2 about Skin and Hair Care. I would love to hear your opinion, too.
Chanel Rouge Hydrabase Creme Lipstick in Vamp, $27.
The Châteauneuf du Pape of wine lipsticks, this is still the classic.
Why I picked this item: I would love to try it
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Lipstick in Provocative Pink, $34.
As smooth as butter, this pink makes our eyes seem brighter and our cheeks rosier.
Why I picked this item: Everyone knows that this lipstick rules and this color looks so vibrant
Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in RD 165, $23.
Unbelievable—a red that looks good on everyone. The best part? It’s as hydrating as a balm but stays put for hours.
Why I picked this item:
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
