Nails Of The Day: Marc Jacobs Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola

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.

Currently Loving: Red and Berry Nail Polishes

I used to be a bit obsessed with all the different nail polishes. All those out-of-this-world stunning shades and innovative finishes  really rocked my world. Of course, I am no way even close to the  real nail polish fanatics, but I do have several shades of yellow, for example.

But recently something changed and I’ve been wearing classic colours all the time, think red/berry/plum.  I don’t know why, but every time I paint my nails with green or brown, I’m not feeling it. It’s been like this for about two months. Back to the basics?

Too Much Red? Red Lips and Nails Of The Day!

Apparently, I don’t know such thing, as “too much black”, or, for that matter, often “too much red”.

I have been drawn to red lipstick and nail polish combo for years and years now. But lately I’ve been wearing it non-stop, almost.

While I’ve started “doing red nails”  just when I started wearing  polish in general, it took me some time to get used to red lipstick, and thank God. A teen with an (often badly applied) red lipstick is not the best sight ever, you know?!

Nails Of The Day: Maybelline Colorama in Power Red

I have quite a few  Maybelline Colorama nail polishes, so I was curious to try the re-launched range. Compared to the old design (and my horrible photos) this new look  is so much better, it is chic and looks like it could be a part of a luxury line.

The brush is also easier to use now, it’s not  a wide-and-thin  one but I can’t complain.

But since I have a lot of red nail polishes already (my favourite has to be Revlon Red, the best red, in my opinion), I gave this one to my aunt along with red lipstick. My uncle better appreciate, ha!

Nails Of The Day: L’Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium Nail Polish in 734 Black Red

Today I want to show you one more nail polish which is among my favourites and it is L’Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium Nail Polish in 734 Black Red.

I’ve actually had it for over a year now and wore it numerous times but somehow always forgot to take the photo.

So here it is finally! And I am so in love with the blackened red, it is a perfect combination if you ask me… It looks absolutely stunning on the nails.

The nail polish applies evenly and is opaque with two coats but the thing that I hate about it is the brush. It is long and thin (and I like it to be short and thick) so I manage to create some mess, especially near the cuticles. But if that’s the kind of brush you like, it shouldn’t be a problem for you.

Although on me it doesn’t last for seven days, as promised, I love and use this nail polish a lot.
