Zoya - Dovima

Hello everyone,

Hope you've been doing fine! Me, I hate late autumn, the depressive November coming up next...changing the hour this weekend... and this cold wind! Oh well, hope December will come sooner with its Christmas-y, joyful atmosphere!

Anyways, today I have for you a love at first sight! I saw it on many blogs, and I decided to purchase it. I think it's from the Matte Velvet collection 2009. Well, I don't think it suits me very well, though I still love the shade and the matte charcoal finish.
The application is very good. I tried both one coat and 2 coats. Because most of the blogs show it in 2 coats, here I'm actually wearing 1 coat of Zoya Dovima, no top coat:

Thank you so much for watching!!!

Chanel - Mimosa

Hello everyone,

These pictures were taken during my holidays in august! You can guess the high level of housekeeping and sportive activity by the the length of my nails ... :D
The picture quality is not great, sorry about that.

So, Chanel Mimosa was the first Chanel and I've ever tried on! And this is thanks to my friend Ruxi who borrowed it to me. I really enjoyed wearing it, and also it was durng summer and I loved it!
The application is OK, no streaks at all , which is not often for a yellow! I don't remember exactly if I was wearing 2 or 3 coats? What's for sure, is that you'll need at least 2 coats for opacity, because the formula is quite on the thin side. But you know, I really loved this shimmery, bright yellow! I know that "Mimosa" is a more glamorous name, but I would rather call it Chanel Lemon! ;) Don't you think it really looks like lemon? I do :D

Thank you everyone for wathcing!

Big hugs!!!

Essie - Brazilliant - Brazilliant Collection

Hello everyone,

Continuing today with posting another polish from the Brazilliant Collection from Essie! I've got a lot to catch up with!;)
So here is Brazilliant! Another orange! Yay - I love orange! I think that this polish was one of the most expected this summer (by me, anyway! :) ). It is a very beautiful bright orange, with pink sheer; which makes it quite one of a kind. The finish though is not quite as shiny as Meet me at Sunset, but I think it is prettier this way, and more original.
The application was quite average, I find it a bit streaky for an Essie, actually the only one from the set of 6 which had this problem. But it's not bad, I've seen worse ;)

So here I'm wearing 2 coats of Essie - Brazilliant, not top coat:

Thank you so much for watching!

Big hugs!!!

Essie - Meet Me At Sunset - Brazilliant Collection

Hello everyone,

I'm soooo sorry for the long absence... I was very, very busy lately and I've completely neglected my blog. I'll try to be post on a more regular base, but I gotta be honest - I'm not so sure about it because next week I'll start my new job, and I won't be really be counting my hours at the begging. We'll see.

So I've been having these pictures already uploaded in my drafts for more than a month. Don't remember exactly when I took them but it seems like it was a beautiful day :)

So here is, the second polish I'm posting from the Brazilliant Collection (oh, dear, I'm so terribly late with my posting!). I've already posted Smooth Sailing.
Now this polish din't seem quite xtraordunary in the bottle, but once on the nail, I think it looks great! This is a very smooth and shiny burnt orange cream. The application was fabulous, and the formula is great.

Here I'm wearing 2 coats of Essie - Meet Me at Sunset, no top coat:

Thank you so much for watching!
