China Glaze - Stella

This polish is from China Glaze Retro Diva collection. It's deep purple with a lots of fine pink and purple shimmer.

The application wasn't difficult. I added 2 coats for deeper color.

This one is one of my favourites purple polishes. The color is so deep and so gorgeous, especially in real life.
What do you think about this color? Do you like it?

Look by Bipa - Sunset

This is sunny color for sunny days. :)

At my last visit to Austria I bought 3 Look by Bipa polishes. Here is the first one.

The application wasn't so perfect. The polish is streaky and next time I will add some thinner and it may be better.

The color is really strong and now my nails look just like sun's rays. :)

Enjoy your Sunday!

Essie St. Lucia Lilac + Konad

And this is what came up, when I add konad design. :)

I used Essie St. Lucia Lilac, Color Club Wild at Heart, konad plate m57 and Essie Good to Go as top coat.

Once again I must say that Wild at Heart is fantastic for konading.

I like this combination. What about you?

Essie - St. Lucia Lilac

This is lovely, light purple color.

The application was a little bit streaky and the polish is quite sheer.
I added 2 coats and the second one is more thick.

I think this color is just calling for some konad design! :)

Slightly Different French

I'm a big fan of french manicure. Today I've decided to show you my latest creation. :)

Here you can see all the things I've used. I've forgot to add konad plate m56.

I know that is not entirely successful, but nevertheless I decided to show it to you. ;)

What do you think?

Basic LE Winter Elegance

Today I have for you two polishes from Baisic's limited edition. This winter collection was called WINTER ELEGANCE.
I own this two for a quite long time, but somehow they never came on turn. :)

First is light pink and it's more appropriate for french manicure as alone. On my photos are 2 coats and I apply just over base coat, because I expected less sheer look. Next time I will try it over white tips.

The second one is dark purple with cream finish. The application was without any problems.
I added 2 coats.

Of these two I prefer purple.
I'm not sure if there were more polishes in this collection. I only got these two. But they are definitely worth the money. I recommend them to you.

I hope you enjoy the weekend! :)

Franken Heavenly Blue + Konad

Of course I have to upgraded my franky and so I've added konad.

Did you expect anything else from me? I doubt. :D

For konad I used Manhattan - 710T and konad plate m65.

Manhattan polish was a little bit to watery and so you can see some lines on the pattern. This is on the photos much more outstanding than in real life.

I like this combination. :) What about you?

Franken - Heavenly Blue

For a long time I wanted a light blue polish. Because I couldn't find it, I've decided to make it on my own. :) So I mixed some colors and this is what came out.

Please don't ask me which polishes I put in. Because I can not remember any more. I know that there was one white and one blue, but maybe there was even more polishes. Has already passed quite a few times when I mixed this one.

I had a little problems with application. Maybe the polishes weren't compatible. First coat was very streaky and uneven. But the second coat corrected it.
On the photos are 2 coats.

What do you think? Do you like my franky? :)

Comparison between Where's the Soiree and Konad black

Anita from KONADomania ask me if I want to compare two black polishes, how they work with konad.

First of them is Konad Special Polish and another is Color Club Where's the Soiree.

For the base color I used two China Glaze polishes; Spontaneous and Light as Air!
I was interested in the difference in the bright base and a darker.

I found out that both polishes are well pigmented. Konad polish is a little more pigmented, but this is not so noticeable on the photos. Another annoying thing was with konad polish, because it's very hard to clean what goes to skin. Color Club polish was easy to clean from skin around nails.

A real mess started when I added top coat. Konad polish didn't pass the test and Where's the Soiree did a great job. I added Essie Good to Go 5 minutes after the konad and you can see what happened.

So my winner is Color Club Where's the Soiree. I definitely recommend it for black konad designs. :)

Have a nice day!

Catrice - Vibrant Violet

This is my second Catrice nail polish. I've got it from Anchek.
She is my nail polish fairy. :) THANK YOU, GIRL!

I like the color. It's between the red and the fuchsia. Quite special and rare color.

And another shock - this is only one coat. The polish is well pigmented and the application was without any problems.

In the end I wanted to add some konad, I've actually already added, but the application has been unsuccessful and therefore no photos. :)

Enjoy the weekend!

Layering with Essence Joe and L.A. Colors Pink Sizzle

Today I wanted to show you L.A. Colors - Pink Sizzle. This color is very sheer and I've decided (for the first time) to use the method of layering.

So I browse my box with nail polishes and immediately decided for Essence - Joe.

I was surprised that this one was opaque with only one coat. The application was flawless and the polish was perfect consistency.

I love the base color, but nevertheless I decided to add Pink Sizzle. And this combination I like even more. :)

The color is just prefect for sunny days. You can see a little of purple, a lot of pink and sometimes even gold. :)

Because it was beautiful, sunny day today I just can't stop staring at my nails.
Simply love this combination. What about you? Like it or not like it? :)

Misa Burnished Bronze + Konad

I know that I have already shown you this nail polish. But I think that is so special that can't hurt if I show it again. :)

This color is perfect for spring and summer. You can see more colors in it. From red, orange, brown, to bronze and gold.

The application was great. There are 2 coats on the photos.

Of course I had to add konad. :)

I used China Glaze - 2030 and konad plate m60.

What do you think? Do you like it? Which combination do you prefer? With konad or without it?
