Autumn manicure

I've come to term with the fact that the summer is over and we are deep into autumn, so when on the forum challenge the theme was autumn manicure I had to jump in and do something. 



Whenever I see this brown nail polish with red and golden specks from S-he I'm always reminded of autumn, and the gold Golden rose seemed like perfect accent nail. This shot is with top coat and under artificial lightning


And then I added a bunch of different red and gold glitters, this one is shot in the sun 


and this one in the shade, with two coats of top coat because most of these drink up the top coat really quick. Does this manicure reminds you of autumn and what do you think of it? I've used Essence Peel off base coat for this and boy was it a joy to remove this manicure after a hot shower I really like it and if you stay away from the hot water nail polish really stays put :D

New York blue

You know that blue is my favorite color, well today I have for you my favorite blue polish for this fall. It's a Catrice New York from the Big city life LE and it's not available in our stores any more unfortunately. 


It's a creme dusty muted blue. On the first two pictures there is two coats without top coat, first is in the shade and the second is in the sun. 


It dries really quick and I like the consistency. It's a nice base for layering or stamping or nail art. 


And this one is with top coat and in artificial lightning. This picture is a bit older but I didn't want to publish it on it's own. 


Kitty update. The kitty now has a name and she is called Nara. Today she is going to her temporary home until she finds her people, in the mean time her favorite spot to hang out was on me of course ^_^ She is a real darling, she likes to cuddle, sleep and play I hope she finds some good people soon :D

Purple and green

I meant to post this yesterday but the kitty had the priority :) I'm on the last drops  of the Catrice Sold out forever so I used it only as an accent, and the purple is something that I frankened.


I wanted a purple make up to go with the manicure so this is what I came up with. 


I thought that the eyes are strong enough so I kept it really light on the cheeks and lips.


How do you like the combo?  What would you do differently?

Ostavljena mi je ova maca jutros ispred vrata, ja nemam mogucnost je ostaviti kod sebe, je li ima netko tko bi je udomio? Ili mi bar rekao sto da radim s njom, u koji azil da je odnesem ili sto, Zagreb je u pitanju. Mirna je i djeluje kao da je vec zivjela kod nekog, ostavljene su loptice i dvije vrecice hrane s njom. Javite se na lendoxia@gmail.com ili u komentare, ja stvarno ne znam nista o kucnim ljubimcima :/

Grey(t)

Of 1500 pictures mentioned on twitter in the end I found two to publish ^_^

flormar grey nail polish

This is Flormar 417 , one of the few Flormars I have but a great polish, covers in two coats, great canvas for any stamping, nail art or just layering with glitters. Dries quickly, nice consistency, standard brush. Here is a picture without top coat if I remember correctly. 


And a pidgeon from the other day when I was reading in the park :) I need to soak up as much sun as possible while I still can, so I can survive the winter ;)

Style me

After being at home and having a really nice spot to take pictures now I really struggle with the fact that I don't have the lightning I want so I'm still trying to figure out what shall I do. So I have something from the maybe folder, even though I thought I would swatch this one again I am stopping the nitpicking and publishing them.

rozi foil lak za nokte

This is Essence Style me love from the Nails in style collection that first came out in the summer of 2011 but we got it this summer. It's the collection with the foils which I still don't know how to properly use and I don't have the right top coat for them, but they will be in some other post :)

metallic pink nail polish

All pictures are two coats without top coat. It dries really fast and if you are careful it can be a one coater

nails in style, style me love

And in the sun it's really sparkly which this picture doesn't really properly show. Do you have anything from this collection and what do you think about this nail polish?

Fire it up

To make up for not posting on time I have a picture spam for you today :D so I hope you'll forgive me I was a little busy. Probably you have seen this one a million times already but it's so pretty that you can see it one more time :P


Probably from the pic of the bottom of the bottle you know what it is, it's Mac Factors Fantasy fire and everybody loves it. I still don't get why this and the Clarins aka unicorn pee are so hyped up but it's a nice polish to look at. 


On the following pics there is one coat of Fantasy fire over Essence My boyfriends jeans 


First two pics are shot in the shade and on all the pics there is a top coat


And the pictures in the sun, the first is to see the copperyness of the shimmer


this is where the shimmer is more on the yellow side


And tilted to see the green :) Sorry for the slight tipwear I polished my nails in the evening and until morning there was already some tipwear.


And an extra, this is Fantasy fire over Little miss bright from Essence shot under artificial light when my nails were the longest this summer, now they are short again because as always one broke and I had to file them all. Have a lovely rest of the weekend :)

Party in My Cabana

 I'm not of the ones that usually buys expensive polishes but this one was on sale and it was a treat for myself . I bought it a while ago and it's my first OPI and it's called Party in My Cabana. I've worn it a couple of times already but I haven't swatched it properly untill now. 


Sticker shot :) I removed the top sticker and just left this one


I love the color it's a darker warm pink, pics aren't 100 % color accurate, it isn't this warm in person but this was the best my camera could do. 


In the pics there are two coats with a top coat. I like the consistency but you have to be careful or otherwise you'll end up with the bald spots. 


And a photo in the sun :) Only thing that I don't like about this polish is that at least on me it chips pretty fast, which is a shame because this is one of the colors I would like to last longer as it's suitable for a lots of occasions. 


So  to prolong the wear of the manicure and bling it up a little I added Circus Confetti from Essence, left pic is in the shade and right is in the sun, click on the pictures to get a better view. Not my favorite glitter combo but it's nice :) Let me know what you think in the comments :D I hope you are having a great weekend and you are not melting like I am, but I don't complain I like heat and I wish this weather lasts for a while longer :)
