Nails Of The Day: Sally Hansen Nail Polish in Blue It

It’s  cold today and snow is everywhere (which makes me happy) so I thought that it’s a perfect time for a dark blue nail polish.

The only dark (well, relatively) blue which I have is Sally Hansen Blue It so I’ve decided to wear it today. I have to say that it is an amazing colour, I only wish it stayed on my nails for a longer time.

I am wearing one layer of nail polish and a Seche Vite top coat. I should have used 2 layers but it looks ok with 1 layer in real life, I guess it looks kind of streaky because of the flash. By the way you can actually see the snow on the background.

And what  nail polish are you wearing this week?

Nails of the Day: GOSH Rainbow Nail Polish

I’ve wanted to get a  nail polish with such effect for a long time already so I was happy to find GOSH Rainbow. It is basically a clear nail polish with golden flakes. It looks amazing on dark nail polishes but nothing special on bare nails or pastel/light polishes.

I have to say that the effect is great when you apply a thin layer of nail polish. If you don’t  – you will get the effect that I got ( looks quite messy and untidy) and I can’t say that I like it. For some reason it also reminds me of leopard prints which I hate.

Anyway, this can be a great product if you can apply it the right way and you have  beautiful manicure. And, as you can see, I have mixed feelings about my manicure. Although my girlfriends say that they like it (maybe they just want to be nice lol).

Next time I will try to use it over the green or red nail polishes, should look great for Christmas! (Have you noticed that I use the word “Christmas” a lot lately?!)

And I obviously need to do something to make the length of my nails the same.

If you can’t find GOSH (a brand from Denmark) in your country, I know that Nubar makes a nail polish with similar effect.

Ciate and A England Nail Polishes For Summer 2011

I love finding out about the new brands (and especially trying them out). So today I want to share about the brands that I’ve never mentioned before. Both are not new for me, although one is relatively  new on the market, but I’ve never tried any of them.

So the first one is called A England and  their  The Mythicals collection which, as they say themselves, is inspired by “enchanting spirit of England and its myths “.

I have chosen my favourite shades from the collection. I haven’t tried them but I like the promos, names and the description.

LADY OF THE LAKE, dusky purple with rainbow glimmer and glow; GALAHAD, mistyc vibrant blue green; LANCELOT, intriguing mysterious black red garnet; PERCEVAL, splendid and resplendent red; HOLY GRAIL, glorious gold. Each shade is £9.

The other nail polishes that I want to talk about are from the brand called

Nails Of The Day: LVX Sanguine Nail Lacquer

I am happy to share about the new nail polish brand called LVX (Latin, means Light) which  is a 5 Free (without Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, and Camphor), cruelty free, vegan nail polish.

The main idea behind the brand is to compliment the seasonal fashion trends.

So far there are only three collections available – Summer 2012, Fall/Winter 2012 and Winter Resort 2013. And I have a shade which is a part of the Fall/Winter collection and is called Sanguine.

The formula of this nail polish is great, it goes on  smoothly without streaks and looks beautiful even with one coat, but I still prefer two. The brush, which is also a very important thing, is nice,aw well. It’s not too thin or too thick (although I personally like thick brushes), just spot on.

This colour is
