Nfu.Oh 39


Dosta dugo sam želela da nabavim zelene ljuspice, ali nekako su mi stalno izmicale. Onda sam imala ludu sreću da zahvaljujući MarryJ uspela da dođem do ovog laka. Ne znam zašto je Nfu.Oh odlučio da prestane da proizvodi svoju liniju lakova sa ljuspicama jer imali su zaista jedinstven izbor tih lakova. Većina lakova iz ove linije se više ne može nabaviti, ali neki se još mogu naći po različitim internet prodavnicama. Predlažem vam da iskoristite priliku i kupite one koji vam se dopadaju dok još možete.


I've wanted to get green flakies polish for quite some time, but they always happened to slip out of my grasp. I was fortunate enough to get this polish thanks to MarryJ. I don't know why Nfu.Oh decided to discontinue the entire flakies line of polishes since they had truly unique range of those polishes. Most of these polishes can no longer be bought, but some can still be found at different online stores. I suggest you take the opportunity and get those you like while you still can.

Rimmel Space Dust 005 Total Eclipse


Total Eclipse je jedan od tri Rimmel Space Dust laka koja nisu dostupna kod nas i ujedno jedini lak iz cele kolekcije koji sam zaista želela da nabavim. Srećom drugarica je putovala u London i obišla je nekoliko Boots i Superdrug prodavnica da mi nađe ovaj lak jer je svuda samo on bio rasprodan. Rimmel Space Dust lakovi sadrže 8 ml i u Engleskoj koštaju 3,99 £. Kod nas im je cena 295 dinara u Mauriciusu, nešto više u DMu, ali dostupne su samo dve nijanse (Aurora i Moon Walking).


Total Eclipse is one of three Rimmel Space Dust polishes that aren't available in Serbia and it was the only polishe from this collection that I wanted to get. Fortunately a friend of mine went to London and finally found me a bottle after visiting several Boots and Superdrug stores that were sold out of only this shade. Rimmel Space Dust polishes come in 8 ml bottles and in England they retail for 3,99 £.

Rimmel Space Dust 003 Aurora


U novembru su se kod nas pojavili Rimmel Space Dust lakovi, ali na žalost samo dve od pet boja inače u ponudi. Auroru sam uzela samo iz želje da uporedim Rimmel teksturce sa drugim teksturisanim lakovima. Rimmel Space Dust lakovi sadrže 8 ml i koštaju 295 dinara u Mauriciusu, nešto više u DMu, ali dostupne su samo dve nijanse (Aurora i Moon Walking).


Rimmel Space Dust nail polishes arrived in Serbia in November, but only two of five colours. I bought Aurora only because I wanted to compare Rimmel textured polishes with other textured polishes. Rimmel Space Dust polishes come in 8 ml bottles and retail for about 3 €.

Essence Nude Glam 06 Cookies & Cream


Cookies & Cream je jedan od tri Essence Nude Glam laka koja sam uzela kada su bili na sniženju zbog povlačenja. Lakovi u boji kože nisu moj fazon i lakše mi je da ih uzmem (i kasnije prosledim) ako ih platim malo. Od svih (malobrojnih) lakova ovog tipa koje sam isprobala ovaj mi se najmanje dopada. Nije zbog boje, boja mi je sasvim dobro stajala. Problem je u šimeru koji mi se nimalo nije svideo.


Cookies & Cream is one of three Essence Nude Glam polishes I bought when they were on sales because they were to be discontinued. Nude polishes aren't my cup of tea and it is easier to me to get them (and pass them on) if I don't pay much for them. Out of all (few) polishes of this sort that I tried I liked this one the least. It's not because of the colour. The colour suited me just fine. It was because of the shimmer, which I didn't like one bit.

China Glaze GR8


Veoma mi je žao što sam se lakovima za nokte vratila tek pošto je China Glaze već povukao lakove iz hvaljene OMG kolekcije. No kada sam se letos raspitivala kod uvoznika saznala sam da im je ostalo nekoliko bočica ovog laka te sam ga zahvaljujući devojkama iz Black Care (Kiwi Sun) i nabavila. Ne znam da li je do sada ostao još koji primerak, ali to lako možete proveriti jer Alexandar cosmetics ima veoma dobru korisničku službu, a i devojke iz Kivija su uvek spremne da pomognu.


I am very sorry I turned back to nail polish only after China Glaze had already discontinued their praised OMG collection. But when I was inquiring of the importer I had found out that they have had several bottles of this polish left so I managed to snag a bottle.

S.he Stylezone 340


Dugo nisam ni pogledala neki S.he Stylezone lak. Onima koje već imam nisam bila previše zadovoljna pa mi se nije davao novac na nešto što će verovatno da me razočara. No ovaj lak, koji je bio hit jesenas na forumu zbog svoje sličnosti sa Essie Armed and Ready, bio je na rasprodaji i nisam mogla da odolim smešnoj ceni po kojoj su ga prodavali. S.he Stylezone je DMova marka i stoga dostupna samo u DM prodavnicama. Lakovi imaju 10 ml i koštaju oko 290 dinara. Ne znam koji im je sastav, a na zvaničnom sajtu samo piše da ne sadrže formalin i toluen.


It's been awhile since I last glanced at a S.he Stylezone polish. The ones I had bough before didn't live up to my expectations so I was unwilling to waste my money on yet another disappointment. But I couldn't resist a severely reduced price of this polish, which was a huge hit past fall due to its resemblance to Essie Armed & Ready. S.he Stylezone is a DM Drogerie Markt brand and therefore available only in DM stores. Polishes come in 10 ml bottles for about 2.5 €. I can't find the ingredients list anywhere, but the official website of the brand states that it doesn't contain toluene or formalin.

Morgan Taylor Wonder Woman


Jesu li vam dosadili crveni lakovi? Meni nisu. Morgan Taylor Wonder Woman (50031) je lak koji mi je baš zapao za oko kada sam u prijatnom ambijentu GP Contour birala lakove za recenzije. Ko zna za moju ljubav prema Aura Hot & Chili razumeće zašto mi se ovaj lak dopao. U pitanju je savršena zamena za mog ljubimca koji se više ne proizvodi. Oba su veoma pigmentisani crveni šimeri i jedina razlika koju mogu da vidim je što Wonder Woman ima veću sklonost da u šimeru pokazuje tragove mazanja. Namazan u debljem sloju bi komotno mogao da se nosi kao jednoslojac, ali onda su tragovi mazanja vidljiviji. Na direktnom svetlu ovaj lak deluje kao crveni saten, a na indirektnom svetlu deluje kao da iz njega isijava skrivena vatra. Sjaj laka je metalik ka staklastom. Za staklastiji ili gel izgled treba naneti gušći nadlak.


Are you bored with red polishes? I am not. Morgan Taylor Wonder Woman (50031) is the polish that caught my eye while I was picking polishes for review. Those who know of my love for Aura Hot & Chili shall understand why I like this polish. It is a perfect dupe for my discontinued favourite. Both are well pigmented red shimmery polishes and the only difference I can see is that Wonder Woman tends to show brush strokes in shimmer. Applied in thicker layer it could pass as a one-coater, but then it is frostier. In direct light this polish looks like bright red satin and in indirect light you can see the hidden flames shining through. It dries to metallic to glassy shine. For gel or more glassy look you will need a thicker top coat.

Don Juan Nail Stars LK183

Don Juan LK183 je jedini Nail Stars lak koji sam proletos dobila u paketiću od Don Juan tima. Nail Stars linija je, ako sam dobro primetila, unapređena linija običnih Don Juan lakova. Pošto mi je ovo bio jedini neisproban i neuslikan Don Juan lak, njega sam nosila kada smo na forumu imali Don Juan tematski petak. Don Juan Nail Stars lakovi imaju 15 ml i koštaju oko 120 dinara.


Don Juan LK183 is the only Nail Stars polish I received this spring from Don Juan team. If I'm not mistaken, Nail Stars line is actually improved line of regular Don Juan polishes. I wore this polish for Don Juan theme because it was the only Don Juan polish I hadn't tried. Don Juan Nail Stars come in 15 ml bottles and cost about 1 €.


Lak simpatičnog imena LK183 (molim vas, molim vas, molim vas dajte im prava imena) u bočici deluje kao boja crvene šljive. Mada je boja u bočici prelepa, a i na noktima je veoma lepa, ipak me nije oduševila. Na mahove mi je bila suviše braon, na mahove nedovoljno ljubičasto, a sve vreme nedovoljno vamp za moj ukus. U pitanju je prozračan sirupast lak, tako da od njega ne treba da očekujete puno pokrivanje i ujednačenu boju iz dva sloja. Očekujte veoma visok sjaj. Ja na slikama imam dva sloja laka i nemam nadlak. Nisam nanela treći sloj jer sam ovaj lak iskoristila kao bazu za pečatiranje i nisam želela suviše slojeva na noktima.


The polish that bears charming name LK183 looks like plum red polish in the bottle. While the polish looks gorgeous in the bottle and the colour is very pretty on nails too, it didn't thrill me as much as I expected it to. At times it looked too brown, at times it didn't look purple enough and overall it didn't look vamp enough for my taste. This is a jelly polish, so one shouldn't expect full coverage and even colour in just two coats. One can and should expect very glossy finish. In photos I have two coats of polish and no top coat. I didn't apply the third coat because I wanted to stamp over this polish and I didn't want too many coats on my nails.

Depend Chameleon 2088 Hot Lava


U mesečnom pregledu ste mogli da pročitate da sam uzela dva laka iz Depend Chameleon kolekcije. Ono što mi je bilo zaniljivo je da ove lakove nisam uspela da nađem u uvoznikovim prodavnicama nego samo u DMu. Kolekcija je u Švedskoj bila dostupna već krajem avgusta, a kod nas je stigla u decembru. Poput drugih Depend lakova i lakovi iz Chameleon kolekcije imaju 5 ml i koštaju 289 dinara.


You could see in my monthly overview that I have bought two Depend Chameleon polishes. What I found interesting is that I couldn't find these at importers stores, but only in DM drugstores. This collection was available in Sweden at the end of August, but only since December in Serbia. Like other Depend polishes, the ones from Chameleon line come in 5 ml bottles and retail for about 2.5 €.

OPI Is That Silva?


OPI Is That Silva? (HL D40) iz prošlogodišnje praznične Skyfall kolekcije poslednji je OPI magnetni lak koji sam kupila. Iskoristila sam neverovatan popust na jesenjem Sajmu kozmetike i uzela sam ga maltene za trećinu cene. Ovog laka ima još u Prima apotekama, ali ne znam po kojoj ceni. U pakovanju se dobija lak od 15 ml i odlično konstruisani magnet. Makar zbog magneta vredi imati sva tri OPI magnetna laka. Tokom januara u pojedinim Prima apotekama važi popust od 20 % na OPI proizvode.


OPI Is That Silva? (HL D40) from last year's holiday collection Skyfall is the last OPI magnetic polish I bought. I took the opportunity to snag it at almost one third of the price at the fall Cosmetics fair. You get a full size bottle of magnetic polish and an exquisitely constructed magnet. If for nothing else, the magnet is why it is worth to have all three OPI magnetic polishes.

Zoya Cynthia


Zoya Cynthia (ZP568) iz Smoke kolekcije za jesen 2011. godine se na zvaničnom sajtu vodi kao zadimljena, zacrnjena paun petrolej plava krema toplog podtona. Ovo je veoma neobična boja na više načina. Pre svega zato što sa prvim slojem izgleda više zeleno nego plavo, sa drugim slojem postaje teget bez naznaka zelene, ali na direktnom veštačkom svetlu se opet čini tamno zelenom poput Envy. Potom je tu krem završnica koja to nije. Već u bočici se nazire najfiniji mogući šimer, ali se on ne vidi dok se nokti ne pogledaju pod direktnim svetlom. Nadlak čini šimer vidljivijim i boju zelenijom. U zatvorenom deluje skoro crno, ali se ipak vidi da je teget.


Zoya Cynthia (ZP568) from Smoke collection for autumn 2011. is described on official website as smoky blackened peacock teal creme with warm undertone. This is an unusual shade in several ways. Firstly because in one coat it looks more green than blue, in two coats it looks dark navy without traces of green, but in direct artificial light it looks dark green again, like Envy. Then there is the creme finish which it isn't. You can catch a glimpse of the finest shimmer in the bottle, but you won't see it one the nails until you look at them in direct light. Top coat makes the shimmer more visible and the colour greener.

Matching Manicures - životinjska šara


Konačno su sve kockice došle na svoje mesto i posle dosta vremena učestvujem ponovo u usklađenom manikiru. Tema koja je odabrana za ovu nedelju je životinjska šara. Želela sam da uradim reptilski print u čast filma Hobbit. Osnovna boja mi je OPI Warm & Fozzie, a pečatirala sam Metropolisom. Tabla koju sam koristila je PMAG-1D. Sve sam zamatirala Miss Sporty Check Matte nadlakom.


Finally all pieces of the puzzle came into place and I can take part in Matching Manicures again, after quite a long time. The theme that was picked for this week is animal print. I wanted to do reptilian print in honour of The Hobbit film. The base colour I chose is OPI Warm & Fozzie, and I used Aura Metropolis to stamp over it. The image plate I used was PMAG-1D. I have mattified everything with Miss Sporty Check Matte top coat.

Miss Sporty 160 Cherry

Miss Sporty 160 Cherry je jedan od onih lakova koje sam kupovala u momentima kada samo imam želju da kupim neki lak, a Miss Sporty je jeftin i ne marim ako se ispostavi da mi ne odgovara. Za ovaj sam maltene odmah zažalila što sam ga uzela jer je boja koja mi ne treba. Zato je čekao ovoliko dugo da ga isprobam. Miss Sporty lakovi imaju 8 ml i koštaju oko 150 dinara, a neke boje u Mauricius parfimerijama možete kupiti i za manje od 100 dinara.


Miss Sporty 160 Cherry is one of those polishes I'd buy when I get the urge to buy polish. Miss Sporty is inexpensive and I don't care if it turns out it doesn't suit me. I regretted buying this one almost immediately because I didn't need it. That's why it had to wait this long to be tried. Miss Sporty polishes come in 8 ml bottles and cost about 1 €.


Cherry nije loš lak, samo je lak koji meni ne treba jer imam slične ili bolje lakove. Ukoliko tražite klasičan metalik crveni lak za nokte, a niste sigurni kako bi vam stajao, ovo je odličan izbor jer nije skup, a dobrog je kvaliteta. Boja je veoma klasična crvena ispunjena zlatastim šimerom koji joj daje topliji ton. Lak pokriva veoma dobro iz jednog sloja, ali za punu boju potrebno je dodati i drugi sloj. Suši se prosečnom brzinom. Na slikama imam dva sloja laka i nemam nadlak. Slike su snimljene na indirektnom dnevnom svetlu.


Cherry isn't a bad polish, it is just a polish I don't need because I have similar or better polish in my collection. If you are looking for a classic metallic red polish, and you are unsure how it would look on you, this one is a good choice because it is inexpensive and of quite good quality. The colour is very classic red filled with golden shimmer that gives it warmer tone. It gives good coverage in single coat, but it does need a second coat in order to achieve full colour. Drying time is average. Photos were taken in indirect natural light. I have two coats of polish and no top coat.

N.NAIL Peach Blossom Water Decals


Jedan deo mojih priprema za ChibiCon koji se održava ovog vikenda predstavlja i manikir. U nedostatku trešnjinog cveta odlučila sam da nokte ukrasim breskvinim cvetom, tj. dekalima sa ovim motivom koje sam dobila od KKCenterHk. Ovi dekali nisu nalepnice, nisu samolepljivi. Na jednom tabaku su četiri suprotno orijentisana reda od po pet sličica rascvale grane različite veličine i oblika. Zamerka koju imam je nedostatak ikakvog uputstva za upotrebu. Veoma sam zahvalna AnyRainbow koja je napravila uputstvo u slikama i time mi uštedela dosta vremena.

One part om my preparations for ChibiCon that is being held this weekend is manicure. Not having cherry blossom stickers I resorted to peach blossom decals I  got for review from KKCenterHk. These aren't sticky, have no adhesive. There are four rows of five different images of branches in bloom facing opposite directions on one sheet. My objection is that there are no instructions. I'm grateful for AnyRainbow's photo tutorial that saved me time.

Layla Hologram Effect 08 Flash Black


Naravno, sada kada nema više sunca meni je naspelo da mažem holo lakove. Sva je sreća pa ovi lakovi koje imam pokazuju dugu i kada nema jakog svetla. Flash Black je jedan od Layla lakova koje sam letos kupila u predivnoj radnji Layla Land u Milanu. Layla Hologram Effect lakovi sadrže 10 ml i koštaju oko 12 €. Layla lakovi se mogu naručiti sa njihovog sajta, a i neke druge online prodavnice drže Layla proizvode.


Surely, now that there's no sunshine I want to wear holo polishes. Fortunately, the polishes I have show full rainbow even when there's no strong light. Flash Black is one of Layla polishes I bought this summer at the lovely Layla Land store in Milan. Layla Hologram Effect polishe come in 10 ml bottles and cost about 12 €. Layla polishes can be ordered from their website and some e-tailers carry them too.

Born Pretty Store set za pečatiranje


Obećala sam vam skoru recenziju Born Pretty Store seta za pečatiranje. Kažem set, ali zapravo su u pitanju dva nezavisna proizvoda - dvostrani pečat sa grebačem i pločica sa motivima za Noć veštica QA26.

I have promised you a prompt review of Born Pretty Store stamping set. Well, I say set, but these are actually two separate products - a double-sided stamper with scraper and a Halloween-themed image plate QA26.

OPI Muir Muir on the Wall


Muir Muir on the Wall (NL F61) bio je lak o koji sam se zaljubila kada sam videla najave za kolekciju San Francisco. Onda su se pojavile prve fotografije laka i nisam bila toliko oduševljena njime, posebno kada sam videla poređenja sa Every Month is Oktoberfest. Potom sam ga videla u bočici i ponovo sam se zaljubila i, na svu sreću, Frenzy je bila veoma ljubazna da mi ga pozajmi kako bih konačno odlučila da li ga želim ili ne. San Francisco kolekcija se nalazi u prodaji i svi lakovi iz ove kolekcije bi trebalo da se mogu naći u apotekama koje sarađuju sa OPI Srbija, neki se mogu naručiti iz Nail Linea.


Muir Muir on the Wall (NL F61) was the polish I fell in love with when I first saw the promo pictures for San Francisco collection. Then the first swatches started to pop up and I was underwhelmed, especially after I had seen comparisons with Every Month is Oktoberfest. Then I saw the bottle in person and I fell in love with it again and, fortunately, Frenzy was kind enough to lend me this polish so I could finally decide if I wanted it or not.

Žuti ombre


Jeste li se uželeli sunca? Nemam nešto posebno da kažem o ovom manikiru. Radila sam ga kao drugi manikir za ombre petak. Koristila sam redom od palca ka malom prstu: Essence Urban Messages 5 Wall of Fame, Golden Rose Rich Color 48, S.he Stylezone 300, Essence Colour & go 118 Little Miss Sunrise, Maybelline mini Colorama 105 Urban Orange. Prva slika je snimljena u hladu, druga na direktnom suncu.


I don't have much to say about this mani. I did it as a second mani for ombre Friday. The polishes I used are from thumb to pinkie: Essence Urban Messages 5 Wall of Fame, Golden Rose Rich Color 48, S.he Stylezone 300, Essence Colour & go 118 Little Miss Sunrise, Maybelline mini Colorama 105 Urban Orange. First photo was taken in shade, the other in direct sunshine.

Flormar 429 Cyan


Flormar 429 je prelepa jarka tirkizna krema visokog sjaja. Prvi put sam ovaj lak kupila za drugaricu i to joj je postao omiljeni lak, a kako ja nisam imala ništa slično uzela sam i sebi jedan jer sam uspela da ga nađem po staroj ceni u parfimeriji Kristabell. Maže se divno, bez najmanjih problema. Gustina mu je kakva se samo poželeti može - nije ni gust ni redak. Toliko je pigmentisan da može da bude jednoslojac, a i sjaj mu je veoma visok. Suši se prosečnom brzinom. Iako dobro ide uz moju boju kože, tirkizna ipak nije jedna od mojih boja te je ovaj lak našao novi dom.


Flormar 429 is a gorgeous bright turquoise creme polish. I have first bought this polish for a friend and it soon became her favourite nail polish. Since I didn't have anything like it in my stash I had to get one for myself. It goes on like a dream, flawlessly. The formula is perfect - not too thick, not too thin. It is so pigmented that it could be a one-coater, and it has quite high gloss. Drying time is average. Even though it goes well with my skin tone, turquoise isn't one of my colours so this polish now has a new home.
