Trind Hand Repair


Danas predstavljam kremu koju sam dugo želela da probam. Trind Hand Repair je deo Trind Perfect sistema za negu ruku i noktiju, ali se može kupiti i nezavisno od sistema. Od tri kreme za ruke koje Trind ima u svojoj ponudi (Hand Repair, Hand Cream i Spotlight) ovo je za sada jedina koja se može nabaviti kod nas. Spakovana je u tubu od 75 ml, a preporučena maloprodajna cena je 850 dinara. Spisak svih mesta na kojima možete nabaviti Trind proizvode možete naći na mojoj strani Gde kupiti i na zvaničnoj Facebook strani Trind Srbija.

Today I have for you hand cream I wanted to try for quite a long time. Trind Hand Repair is part of Trind Perfect System for hand and nail care, but is also sold individually. Put of three hand creams Trind offers (Hand Repair, Hand Cream i Spotlight) this is for now the only one available in Serbia. It comes in 75 ml tube and it retails for about 8 €.

Shine a Light on Slavery


Mogli ste da primetite da obično ne pravim tematske članke posvećene nekoj određenoj društvenoj akciji (uglavnom su one u vezi sa borbom protiv raka, side i sličnih velikih bolesti), uglavnom zato što se o tim temama i akcijama govori i piše nadugačko i naširoko svuda, zato što ja nemam neku ličnu vezu sa tom temom (npr. tragična smrt mlade blogerke za koju nism čula dok nije preminula) ili zato što ne volim da pričam o svojoj vezi sa tom temom (možete primetiti da držim blog prilično oslobođen od mog ličnog života). No prošle sam godine učestvovala u nagradnoj igri koju je organizovala Destany, a nagradna igra je bila posvećena dizanju svesti o postojanju ropstva. U 21. veku. Ropstvo.

Essie Sole Mate


Odavno nije tajna da nisam ljubitelj salonskih Essie boja, pre svega zbog male četkice. Sole Mate nije izuzetak. Dugo sam se lomila oko ovog laka dok prošle godine nisam prelomila kada je Jelena odlučila da ga se odrekne. Ova boja postoji i u drogerijskoj verziji, ali ne znam da li im se formule razlikuju. Salonske Essie lakove možete nabaviti preko Nail Line, a drogerijske možete nabaviti u Svim DM i mnogim Lilly drogerijama.


It is no secret that I'm not a fan of salon Essie polishes, mostly because of tiny brush. Sole Mate is no exception. I have contemplated buying this one for quite some time until I finally decided to take it when Jelena offered it at her blog sale. This shade exists in drugstore version too, but I don't know if formulas differ.

China Glaze Below Deck


Below Deck je, verujem, jedna od popularnijih China Glaze boja. Izašla je kao deo prolećne kolekcije Anchors Away iz 2011. godine. Čim sam ga videla uživo bila sam oduševljena svim odlikama ovog laka, ali sam se uzdržavala od kupovine jer imam Kiko 320 Malva Beige, koji mu je maltene jednak po boji. Verovatno ga ne bih ni uzela da nije na forumu ponuđen za razmenu, ali mi je svakako drago što ga jesam nabavila. China Glaze lakovi imaju 15 ml i koštaju 387 dinara. Mogu se nabaviti preko Alexandar Cosmetics ili nekog od njihovih distributera.


I believe Below Deck is one of more popular China Glaze shades. It was part of Anchors Away Collection. I loved all traits of this polish, but I was hesitant to buy it because I have already had Kiko 320 Malva Beige, which is almost a perfect dupe. I'd probably give this one a miss if it weren't offered for a swap and now I'm glad I did get it.

Matching Manicures - French mani


Današnji usklađeni manikir je posvećen francuskom manikiru. Pošto nisam ljubitelj francuskog manikira odlučila sam da uradim nešto veoma diskretno. Pečatirala sam centralni motiv sa pločice MoYou Nails 81. Baza mi je Flormar Supershine Miracle U34, a pečatirala sam lakom Flormar Supershine Miracle U12. Nadlak koji sam koristila je Mavala Colorfix.


Today's Matching Manicures theme is French mani. Since I'm not a fan of French manicure I decided to do something very low key. I stamped the central motif from MoYou Nails 81 image plate. My chosen base colour is Flormar Supershine Miracle U34, and I stamped over it with Flormar Supershine Miracle U12. I topped it off with a coat of Mavala Colorfix.

Kiko 632 Rosso


Sugar Mat je bila sezonska Kiko kolekcija koja se sastojala od 16 teksturisanih lakova - 8 lakova sa šimerom ili šljokicama i 8 jednobojnih lakova bez ikakvog šimera. Ovi lakovi se više ne mogu nabaviti, makar ne pojedinačno. Redovna cena im je bila oko 5 €, ali ja sam ih uhvatila na sniženju za 1,5 €. Pakovanje je od 11 ml.


Kiko Sugar Mat was a seasonal collection that consisted of 16 textured polishes - 8 with shimmer or glitter and 8 without any shimmer. These can't be found any more, at least not individually. Their regular price was around 5 €, but I bought this one at sales for only 1.5 €. The bottle holds 11 ml of polish.

Max Factor Max Effect 44 Graffiti


Max Factor Max Effect 44 Graffiti je jedini Max Factor mini lak koji sam kupila kod nas. Ranije sam imala loša iskustva sa lakovima ove kompanije (Nailfinity linija) i ni danas nije mi lako da se odlučim da kupim neki njihov lak jer im cena uopšte nije niska. Cena u Jasminu je 509 dinara za bočicu od 4,5 ml (hvala osoblju Max Factor Srbija koje se potrudilo da mi nađe ovaj podatak jer zapremina ne piše ni na bočici ni na zvaničnom sajtu), ali neretko neke ili sve nijanse budu na sniženju od 30 do 50% i tada ih vredi uzeti. Ono što je zanimljivo je da nisu sve nijanse dostupne u svim zemljama.


Max Factor Max Effect 44 Graffiti is the only mini Max Factor polish I bought in Serbia. I have had bad experiences with this brand's polishes (from Nailfinity line of polishes) and even today I am hesitant to buy Max Factor polish because they are not cheap. They retail for about 5 € and the bottle holds only 4,5 ml of product (I'd like to thank people in charge of Max Factor Srbija page for getting this information that isn't visible on bottle or official website for me). What is interesting is that not all shades are available in all countries.

Color Club Eternal Beauty


Možda se sećate da me je u oktobru Maria obradovala parom Color Club Halo Hues 2013 lakova. Beyond sam već predstavila, a sada je na red stigao i hladno ljubičasti Eternal Beauty. Color Club lakovi ne sadrže dibutilftalat, toluen i formalin. Ne testiraju se na životinjama i ne sadrže sastojke životinjskog porekla.


You may remember that in October Maria decided to gladden me with a pair of Color Club Halo Hues 2013 polishes. I have already shown you Beyond and now is cool-toned Eternal Beauty's turn. Color Club polishes are 3-free and don't contain formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) and Toluene. They are not being tested on animals. They also don't contain animal products so they are vegan-friendly.

Čipka bez čipke


Pre nekog vremena su mrežice i čipka postali popularni u manikirima, a onda je taj trend nestao kao da ga nikada nije ni bilo. Pretpostavljam zato što je čipka debela i teško je dobro je pričvrstiti na prirodan nokat i onda je i dobro obezbediti da se za nju ne zakačinje sve ono sa čime ste tokom dana u kontaktu. KKCenterHK ima rešenje - transfer foliju sa motivom čipke (NNAIL-E32). Ova folija je širine 4 cm, a dužina ne piše na sajtu. Ja sam je merila tek pošto sam isekla koliko mi treba za ovaj manikir i mogu samo da kažem da je dužina preko 110 cm. I za ovu foliju je potreban lepak za foliju, a ja koristim JR1004-B.

Some time ago lace and nets became the manicure trend, but it vanished as abruptly as it had appeared. I suppose because lace is thick and difficult to attach and secure on the nail and avoid getting caught on whatever you are handling during your day. KKCenterHK seems to have a solution - a transfer foil with black lace motif (NNAIL-E32). This foil is 4 cm wide, and the website doesn't show the length. I only measured it after I had already cut the pieces for my mani and I can only say it is more than 110 cm long. This foil needs special glue in order to be transferred and the one I use is JR1004-B.

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Mains


La Roche-Posay je jesenas Cicaplast liniji dodao dva nova proizvoda - balzam za usne Cicaplast Levres i kremu za ruke Cicaplast Mains. Mada kremu koristim cele zime, moje telo je mesecima bilo u "neću" fazi, fazi kada je u veoma lošem stanju i kada ne reaguje na proizvode za negu i zato vam ih nisam ni predstavljala. No sada izlazim iz te faze i mogu realno da procenim učinak kreme i da vam je napokon predstavim.

Last fall La Roche-Posay added two more products to their Cicaplast line - Cicaplast Levres lip balm and Cicaplast Mains hand cream. While I have been using the hand cream the whole winter, my body was in what I call "don't want to" period, when it is in very bad shape and it doesn't react to care products, so I wasn't showing you any of them. But now I'm coming out of that phase and I can judge the effectiveness of cream and give my review.

Matching Manicures - geometrijski oblici


Ove nedelje su za Matching Manicures temu izglasani geometrijski oblici. Tema se savršeno uklopila sa željom koju već neko vreme imam - da uradim manikir inspirisan Pitom Mondrijanom i Geritom Ritveldom, u čijim sam delima uživala tokom prošlogodišnje posete Nizozemskoj. Ova ideja nije originalna (mnogi blogeri su već radili ovakav manikir), ali mislim da je zanimljiva i jednostavna. Lakovi koje sam koristila su Flormar 400, Essence Little Miss Sunrise, Sephora My Favorite Jeans, Aura Soulmates i Vollare 135a crni crtač.


This week Matching Manicures theme that got majority of votes is geometric shapes. This theme goes perfectly with my wish to do manicure inspired by Piet Mondriaan and Gerrit Rietveld, whose works I enjoyed immensly during my last year's visit to the Netherlands. This idea isn't original, many bloggers have already done such manis, but I think it is interesting and simple. Polishes I used for this manicure are Flormar 400, Essence Little Miss Sunrise, Sephora My Favorite Jeans, Aura Soulmates and Vollare 135a black striper.

Flormar 400


Već neko vreme sam u potrazi za dobrim belim lakom. Potreban mi je pre svega kao baza za pečatiranje i mada mi Don Juan 101 sasvim korektno vrši posao, treba mi nešto što se suši brže i što je bolje pigmentacije. Kada sam videla da je u Kristabell stigla dopuna Flormar lakova uzela sam ovaj verujući da neću biti razočarana. I nisam. Poput svih krem Flormar lakova koje sam imala priliku da probam i ovaj je više nego zadovoljavajućeg kvaliteta. Flormar lakovi imaju 11 ml i u Kristabell koštaju 120 dinara.


I've been searching for a good white polish. I need it mostly as a base for stamping and while Don Juan 101 is quite decent in that department I needed something with better pigmentation and better drying time. I picked this one knowing I won't be disappointed. And I was not. Like every other creme Flormar polish I had tried this one is more than satisfactory. Flormar polishes come in 11 ml bottles.

Golden Rose Carnival 01

jedan sloj preko Sephora Jealous

Kada su se Golden Rose Carnival toperi pojavili kod nas mislila sam da ću ih potpuno preskočiti. Ne volim resaste šljokice, a ovi toperi ih sadrže. Takođe u ponudi nema čisto crvenih i čisto crnih šljokica, koje bih mogla lako da kombinujem sa svojim lakovima. No pošto sam kod Marije videla sličice ovog koji me podseća na pahuljice nisam mogla da odolim. Poput Rich Color i 3D lakova, Carnival lakovi imaju 11,3 ml i široku četkicu. Koštaju 250 dinara.

one coat over Sephora Jealous

When Golden Rose Carnival toppers first arrived I was convinced I'd give them a miss. I don't like bar glitter and these toppers contain them. They also don't contain clearly black or red glitter, which is something I could easily incorporate in my manicures. But after I had seen pictures of this snow-like one at Marija's blog I caved in. Like Rich Color and 3D polishes, these come in 11,3 ml bottles and with wide brush. They cost about 2 €.

Zoya Anaka


Negde sam nedavno napisala da posle hot pink neonca koji mi nije prijao planiram ubrzo da predstavim i ružičasti lak koji mi se zapravo dopada. Odabrala sam ga samo da bih vam predstavila Zoya lak koji mi se činio da je moguća zamena za Essie The Lace Is On, koji nije uvezen, ali na kraju mi se lak veoma dopao i postao nešto mnogo više od poredbenog laka. Postao je deo moje kolekcije. Zoya lakovi ne sadrže toluen, dibutil ftalat, formalin, formalinski rezin, kamfor, sastojke životinjskog porekla i ne testiraju se na životinjama. Svi lakovi dolaze u bočicama od 15 ml. Obični lakovi koštaju 560 dinara, a Pixie Dust 700 dinara. Zoya lakove možete nabaviti u Ultra Sun, bilo uživo bilo preko interneta, kao i kod njihovih distributera u Beogradu, Čačku i Nišu.


I have recently written somewhere that after a hot pink neon polish that I was uncomfortable with you can soon expect a review of a pink polish I actually liked. I have only picked it because it looked like a possible dupe for Essie The Lace Is On, which wasn't imported here, but in the end I liked this polish so much that it became a lot more than a comparison polish. It became part of my nail polish collection. Zoya polishes don't contain toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and animal products and are not tested on animals.

Morgan Taylor All The Right Moves


All the Right Moves je ovoliko dugo čekao da ga predstavim jer na žalost spada u one boje koje mi je veoma teško da verno slikam. Ovo što sada vidite je najpribližnije što sam mogla da uhvatim, ali imajte na umu da je uživo malo topliji, purpurniji. Morgan Taylor lakovi ne sadrže formalin, dibutilftalat i toluen i ne testiraju se na životinjama. Bočice su od 15 ml. Za sada se proizvodi ove firme kod nas mogu naći samo kod uvoznika GP Contour u Novom Sadu i Beogradu po ceni od 864 dinara, a učvršćujuća baza košta 1110 dinara. O novinama se možete informisati na Morgan Taylor Srbija stranici.

All the Right Moves had to wait this long to be shown on my blog because unfortunately this is one of those shades that I find very difficult to capture fatefully on camera. What you are about to see is the closest likeness I managed to come up with, but have in mind that in person it is more purple than violet. Morgan Taylor polishes are big 3-free and cruelty free. They come in 15 ml bottles.

p2 Color Victim 500 Eternal


Drugi od p2 lakova koji ću predstaviti je crna krema iz Color Victim linije. p2 ima više linija lakova, ali ne znam po čemu se tačno razlikuju sem po nazivu i obliku bočice. p2 je DMov brend inicijalno posvećen nezi i ulepšavanju noktiju, mada sada imaju i šminku. Može se nabaviti samo u Nemačkoj i Austriji.


The second one of p2 polishes I'll review is black creme from Color Victim line. p2 has several lines of polishes, but I don't know how they differ from each other except in terms of name and bottle shape. p2 is one of DMs brands that was initially dedicated to nail care and nail beauty, but now has make up too. It is available in Germany and Austria.

Maybelline Colorama Neons 188 Electric Pink


Pred Novu godinu sam dobila L'Oreal paketić i u njemu se između ostalog našao ovaj lak. Volim da dobijam lakove na poklon od ljudi koji me ne poznaju jer su velike šanse da ću dobiti nešto što sama ne bih kupila. Na taj način sam otkrila da volim neke boje koje drugačije sama ne bih odabrala. Zato mi je bilo veoma slatko i zabavno kada sam videla da je lak koji mi je zapao hot pink neonac. Nikada sama ne bih odabrala ovakav lak, ali nema razloga da ga ne probam kada je već tu. Maybelline Colorama lakovi imaju 7 ml, koštaju 219 dinara, a tokom februara su na sniženju od 20% u DMu.


This year I got a New Year's gift from L'Oreal and it held this polish among other things. I love to get nail polishes from people who don't know me because chances are great I'll get something I wouldn't buy myself. I have discovered I like some colour I normally wouldn't give a thought that way. That's why I found it cute and funny when I discovered a hot pink neon polish in my package. I'd never pick such polish myself, but there's no reason not to try it now. Maybelline Colorama polishes come in 7 ml bottles.

MoYou Nails 23

Essence stampy polish preko Don Juan OC231

Znate li šta je sreća u nesreći kada vam hronično pucaju nokti? To što možete da isprobavate motive za pečatiranje koji su mali za vašu uobičajenu dužinu noktiju. MoYou Nails N23 je pločica sa četiri motiva za ceo nokat koji nisu onako veliki kao na drugim MoYou Nails pločicama koje sam do sada prikazala i sa jednim manjim motivom. Dimenzije slika za pun nokat su 16x12 mm, što je ista veličina kao i Konad punih motiva. Izbor slika je takav da se manje-više mogu uspešno nadograđivati i za duže/šire nokte.

crni kineski lak za pečatiranje preko  Aura Professional 51 Forever Mine

Do you know what is a silver lining to chronic nail breaking? The fact that you can try out stamping images that are too small for your regular nail length. MoYou Nails N23 is a stamping plate with four full nail motifs that are smaller than on the other image plates I reviewed and with one smaller image. Full nail images are 16x12 mm, which is the same size as Konad full nail images. The choice of images is such that you can successfully build them up for longer/wider nails.

OPI Alcatraz... Rocks


Teksturisani lakovi su za mene bili najprijatnije iznenađenje prošle godine i drago mi je što groznica za njima ne jenjava i što je ponuda prilično velika čak i kod nas. OPI Alcatraz... Rocks (NL F67) iz San Francisco kolekcije na žalost spada u ograničeni, ekskluzivni deo kolekcije i izgleda da je rasprodat kod nas. Zvučaće smešno ako kažem da sam ga uzela kao zamenu za daleko jeftiniji, ali nama nedostupan p2 Confidential. Ovo je i moj prvi i za sada jedini OPI Liquid Sand lak. Ovi lakovi, poput klasičnih OPI lakova, imaju široku četkicu, 15 ml i koštaju koliko i obični OPI lakovi.


Textured polishes were the most pleasant surprise of the last year and I'm very happy the hype for them isn't passing which makes the range of available textured polishes is quite wide, even here. OPI Alcatraz... Rocks (NL F67) from San Francisco collection for Fall 2013. is unfortunately a limited edition polish and it seems it has been sold out in Serbia. It may sound funny, but I only bought it as a dupe for far cheaper, but just as unobtainable p2 Confidential. For now this is my only OPI Liquid Sand polish. These polishes come in 15 ml bottles, have flat brush and cost just as much as the regular OPI polishes.

Dance Legend New Prism 4 Optical Illusion


Dance Legend je ruska kompanija koja proizvodi lakove. Za veoma kratko vreme su osvojili lakoholičarski svet širokim izborom boja, posebnim efektima i kvalitetom. Dance Legend lakovi imaju 15 ml, odličnu konzistenciju i široku četkicu. U cenovnom rangu su sa OPI lakovima, ali cena varira od kolekcije do kolekcije, odnosno od sastojaka. Možete ih naručiti sa zvaničnog sajta ali i različite internet prodavnice imaju ove lakove u svojoj ponudi.


Dance Legend is a Russian nail polish company. They have conquered the world of polishaholics with their wide range of colours, effects and quality. Dance Legend polishes have 15 ml, great formula and flat wide brush. Their price range is right there with OPI, but their prices do vary depending on the collection, i.e. ingredients. You can order them from the official website or from one of several e-tailers.

Spajk



Prošlog proleća sam na blogu Lindsey Rivait osvojila poklon vaučer za Born Pretty Store i mada mi je nagrada stigla još u aprilu nikako se nisam mogla naterati da je isprobam. Isključivo zbog veličine stvari koje sam odabrala. Motivi na pločici za pečatiranje su premali za moje nokte, a ove nitne su veoma dugačke i nezgodne za nošenje. Trenutno sedim bolesna kod kuće pa sam odlučila da makar nitne testiram, da vidim kako bi mi stajale i mogu li uopšte stajati na noktima, a da ne otpadnu tokom obavljanja svakodnevnih poslova koji ne zahtevaju presvlačenje ili navlačenje rukavica. Nitne koje sam odabrala su šiljci od belog metala, kojih u pakovanju ima oko 100 komada. Prečnik osnove je 4 mm, a visina šiljaka 6 mm. Osnova je malo udubljena, tako da je potrebno staviti malo više lepka ili laka da se nitne dobro pričvrste za nokat. Ja sam ih pričvrstila izdašnom količinom bezbojnog laka i pustila sam ih da se pošteno osuše. Ređala sam po tri nitne po noktu i konačni izgled me podseća na neke učesnike performansa Postapocalyptic De/Com/Posing, Visions of New Hysteria dizajnerke Marije Margoth. Takođe me podseća i na dinosauruse iz Zemlje pre nastanka vremena i iz segmenta Posvećenje proleća iz Fantazije. Iznenađena sam kako se ovi šiljci zapravo prilično dobro drže. Nisam imala nikakvih problema sve dok nisam slučajno rukom udarila u zid i jedna nitna se odvalila. Ovaj manikir ne verujem da se može nositi duže od jednog dana i ako se odlučite za ovaj izgled za odlazak na svirku ili žurku pazite kako mašete rukama kako ne biste pokvarili manikir ili povredili sebe ili nekog drugog.


Last spring I won a gift card for Born Pretty Store at Lindsey Rivait's giveaway. Even though I received the prize last April, I couldn't make myself to try the items only because of the size of the items I picked. Designs on stamping plate are too small for my nails and these studs are very long and difficult to wear. I am sitting home, sick, and I thought I could at least try studs to see how they look and if they can be worn without falling off in the course of day that doesn't require change of clothes and wearing gloves. The studs I picked are white metal conical spikes that come in package of 100 pieces. The base is 4 mm in diameter and the spikes are 6 mm high. The base is concave so you should use more glue or nail polish to attach them on the nail. I used generous amount of nail polish to attach them and I let them dry for quite a long time. I placed three studs per nail and the finished look reminds me of some of Maria Margoth's Postapocalyptic De/Com/Posing, Visions of New Hysteria performers. It also reminds me of dinosaurs from The Land Before Time and Rite of Spring segment from Fantasia. I was pleasantly surprised how well these spikes held. I had no trouble with them until I accidentally hit the wall with my hand and one stud fell off. This is one night only manicure and if you decide to wear it for a gig or a party do take care not to ruin your mani or hurt yourself or someone else.

Januar


Planirala sam da ove godine budem dobra i da ne kupujem previše lakova. To je sve palo u vodu već kada su na sniženje stavljeni Essence proizvodi koji se povlače iz ponude. Svaki po 139 dinara. I Bourjois je bio na sniženju. Njihovi mini lakići povodom 150 godina postojanja kompanije su mi bili preskupi, ali sada nisam mogla da odolim slatkim bočicama. Ne znam šta se dešava sa Flormarom sem da u Kristabell ponovo stižu dopune ove kozmetike po starim cenama. Da, od omraženog mi uvoznika (to sam prekasno primetila). Ne znam da li su u njihovim radnjama cene snižene. Još sam jedno sniženje iskoristila. Sephora je dala popust na neke OPI i Nails inc. lakove. Nisam našla My Vampire is Buff po povoljnoj ceni, ali jesam I Saw... U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw. Jedina dva laka koja sam platila po punoj ceni su China Glaze Merry Berry i Depend Chameleon 2086 Green With Envy.

I had planned to be a good girl and not to buy too much polish. That decision went down the drain when discontinued Essence products have been put on sale. Each for 1 €. Bourjois was on sale as well. Their mini polishes that were released to celebrate the company's 150th birthday were too expensive, but now I couldn't resist these cute bottles. Flormar is available yet again at old prices in my favourite store so I took a couple of those as well. Sephora put some OPI and Nails inc. polishes on sale too. I didn't find My Vampire is Buff, but I did find I Saw... U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw. The only two polishes I paid full price for are China Glaze Merry Berry and Depend Chameleon 2086 Green With Envy.
