Depend Rough Sparkle 2061 Poppy


Prošle godine je Depend izbacio nekoliko trendi kolekcija, uključujući i mini kolekciju mini teksturisanih lakova. Kažem mini kolekciju jer Rough Sparkle sadrži svega šest lakova, a svi nose imena cvetova. Bilo bi lepo da ta imena pišu i na bočicama, a ne samo na njihovoj Facebook stranici. Depend je poznat po svojim mini lakovima (5 ml) i četvrtastoj bočici koja se lako slaže u kutije. Lakovi iz Rough Sparkle kolekcije koštaju oko 340 dinara.


Last year Depend placed several trendy collections on the market and among them was a mini collection of textured mini polishes. I say mini collection because Rough Sparkle consists only of six polishes, and all are named after flowers. It would be nice to see those names on their bottles instead only on Depend Facebook page. Depend is known for their mini polishes (5 ml) and rectangular bottles that are easy to store.

Zanoktica, zanoktica i zanoktica

1. prava zanoktica/true cuticle
2. eponihijum/eponychium
3. pokidana koža/split skin/hangnail
4. tvrde zanoktice/hangnails

Imam potrebu da i sebi i vama, čitaocima, ukažem na nelogičnu upotrebu istog izraza za četiri povezana pojma usled koje može doći do višestrukih zabuna. Pričamo o suvim ili ispucalim zanokticama, o tome kako zanoktice ne treba seći, o nezi zanoktica, o omekšavanju zanoktica, o uklanjanju zanoktica ne razmišljajući o tome da koristimo isti izraz da opišemo različite, ali bliske pojmove, koji se nikako ne smeju tretirati na isti način. Primetićete da sam napisala "četiri povezana pojma", a pisaću samo o tri. Četvrti pojam je medicinski termin koji se odnosi na upalu kože oko nokta (guglajte paronychia na sopstvenu odgovornost) o kome ne mogu da pišem.

This article may not be of interest to my foreign readers as it is related to the confusing use of the same word in Serbian language to describe four closely connected items. We use the same word (zanoktica) when we talk about true cuticle, eponychium, hangnails/agnails and paronychia (google it at your own risk). It is not dissimilar to the use of word "cuticle" to describe both true cuticle and eponychium, but it has gone further. You are welcome to read it if you want to remind yourself what is true cuticle, what is eponychium and what is hangnail.

Nella Milano 006 Turquoise


Sećate li se da sam spomenula da MoYou Nails u ponudi ima jednoslojce za nokte? Ovog puta vam predstavljam drugi iz Nella Milano linije lakova za nokte. Pakovanje je od 9 ml, četkica je srednje širine i pljosnata je. Među sastojcima nema velikih pet štetnih sastojaka.


Do you remember that I mentioned MoYou Nails has one-coaters on offer. Today I present to you the second Nella Milano nail polish I have. Bottle holds 9 ml of product, brush is flat and medium wide. Ingredients list doesn't list the big five harmful ingredients.

Matching Manicures - kavijar


Poslednji usklađi manikir u julu je posvećen kavijar manikiru. Pravi se jednostavno - po sveže namazanom laku treba posuti ukrasne kuglice, koje se mogu za sitne pare kupiti kod Kineza. Naravno, odabrala sam crne. Ovo je prvi i poslednji put da koristim ove kuglice na svojim noktima. Mnaikir nije nosiv (neke perlice su odmah otpale), a i ne izgleda privlačno.

THe last matched manicure in July is dedicated to caviar mani. It is easy to do - you just have to pour these decorative beads over fresh nail polish. I have quite expectedly chosen black ones. This is the first and last time I've worn these. Mani is unwearable (some beads have detached themselves instantly) and I don't find it to be attractive.

Alat za oblikovanje noktiju

Slika različitih turpija, grickalica, klješta i makaza za nokte. Photo of different nail files, clippers, nippers and nail scissors.

Davno sam ovlaš prešla preko oblikovanja noktiju i turpija koje koristim ali kako se ponuda u našoj zemlji poboljšala, a i kako se moje znanje o ovoj oblasti povećalo mislim da je red da detaljnije predstavim različite alatke koje se koriste za skraćivanje i oblikovanje noktiju. Imajte na umu da ovo pišem na osnovu ličnog iskustva, što znači da neće nužno odgovarati svima, mada ću se truditi da pokrijem što više različitih mogućnosti. Ukoliko vi imate drugačije savete, predloge, iskustva, slobodno ih podelite u komentarima.

It's been quite some time since I have briefly covered nail shaping and nail files I use, but since we now have better offer of nail shaping tools and I also know a bit more about the topic I thought I might revisit the topic and present different tools you can use for shortening and shaping your nails a bit better. Please, bear in mind that I write this from my own experience and that it doesn't necessarily mean that what works for me will work for everyone, but I'll do my best to cover as many possibilities. If you have different experiences, advice, thoughts, do share them in the comments.

MoYou Nails 208

Image plate 208
http://moyounails.com/shop/image-plate-208/

Dugo nisam pisala o pločicama za pečatiranje pa danas ispravljam taj propust. Takođe pravim mali izlet iz sfere omiljenih mi motiva za ceo nokat i predstavljam vam MoYou Nails pločicu 208, koja ima sedam malih slika, ali koje se divno mogu uklapati u različite manikire.

I haven't written about stamping plates in a while so today I'm making a little outing from my favourite full nail images and present to you MoYou Nails image plate 208, which has seven small images that you can mix and match for different manis.

Sixteen Cosmetics 492


Danas imam nešto novo za vas. Sixteen Cosmetic je nov brend na našem trištu čiji su lakovi dostupni u Lilly drogerijama, tamo gde su postojali Flormar lakovi. Proizvođač je izgleda grčka kompanija A. Kougiouli & Co. Lakovi su u skromnom pakovanju, ali su sudeći po sadržaju na bočici 5-free, što je za svaku pohvalu. Ima sedamdesetak boja, a cena im je 229 dinara.


Today I have to show you something new on Serbian market. Sixteen Cosmetic is apparently a Greek brand, made by A. Kougiouli & Co. Polishes come in very modest packaging, but if ingredients on label are to true they are big 5-free, which is excellent. There are about 70 shades and they retail for 2 €.

Zoya Chita


Chita je jedan od prošlogodišnjih jesenjih Pixie Dust lakova koje sam željno iščekivala da stignu. Više bih volela da su i ove godine nastavili sa klasičnim Piksićima umesto da su se prebacili na Magical Pixie, no svesna sam da takvo razmišljanje ne vodi nikuda. 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 674 dinara, a Pixie Dust 840 dinara. Zoya lakove možete nabaviti u Ultra Sun, bilo uživo bilo preko interneta, kao i kod njihovih distributera u Beogradu, Čačku i Nišu.


Zoya Chita is one of last autumn's Pixie Dusts that I was so eager to try. I would love if Zoya had kept to regular Pixie Dusts in this year instead of going with Magical Pixies, but I know that those thoughts aren't leading anywhere. Zoya polishes come in 15 ml bottles. They don't contain toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and animal products and are not tested on animals.

Matching Manicures - manikir sa Pinteresta


Danas za usklađeni manikir treba da rekreiramo manikir sa Pinteresta. Ja Pinterest slabo koristim i pritom ne kačim tuđe slike te sam morala da pretražujem table u potrazi za manikirom koji bi mi se svideo, a da je dovoljno jednostavan da u ovim trenucima kada nemam mnogo vremena mogu lako da ga uradim. Izbor je na kraju pao na crno-srebrni tačkasti frenč koji sam našla ovde, a koji potiče odavde.

Today we are supposed to recreate a manicure from Pinterest for our Matching Manicures. I seldom use Pinterest and I don't pin other people's images so I had to browse other boards searching for a mani I'd like and that would be simple enough for me to do now that I don't have much time on my hands. My choice was this black and silver dotted French mani I have found here, and it is originally from here.

Flormar True Color 025


Ovo je još jedna žrtva mog lakoneizdrža od zimus. Pod veštačkim svetlom u radnji mi je delovao savršeno za mene (bez obzira na to što imam već gomilu sličnih lakova). Takođe su ulogu imali niska cena, činjenica da su mi True Color lakovi bili odlični i da se više ne proizvode. Možda se u nekoj zabačenoj parfimeriji može naći još koji lak iz ove kolekcije.


This is another victim of my last winter's polish buying binge. It looked just my colour under shops artificial light (never mind the fact that I already own many similar polishes). Low price, the fact that other polishes from True Color line I own were great and that this line has been discontinued all had their part in my decision to buy this one.

Razna sredstva za negu


S vremena na vreme se među svim sredstvima za negu ruku, noktiju i zanoktica koja imam nađu proizvodi koji su takvi da o njima ne mogu da napišem čestit članak. Nisu to loši proizvodi već neupečatljivi. Sada mi se već skupila gomilica takvih stvari i mislim da ih mogu sve ubaciti u jedan članak, a vi procenite da li bi vama odgovarali.

From time to time among all the hand, nail and cuticle care products I will find some that I don't have much to write about. Those aren't bad product, they are just unremarkable. Now I have collected several such products and I think they could be put in one post and you decide for yourself if some of them would suit you.

Catrice Sand'sation C07 TropiCoral


Jesam završila sa Catrice lakovima van moje zone prijatnosti koje mi je poslala Maria, ali nisam završila sa svim takvim Catrice lakovima koje imam. Danas na redu imam teksturac is Luxury Lacquers linije koji sam osvojila na Parokeets darivanju. U ovoj linije je bilo lakova koji mi se sviđaju po boji, ali nisam uspela da ih nađem na prošlom putovanju. Izgleda da su se brzo i lako rasprodali.


I have shown you all out-of-my-comfort-zone Catrice polishes I have received from Maria, but I'm not done with all such Catrice polishes I own. Today I have a textured polish from Luxury Lacquers collection I have won at Parokeets giveaway. There were several polishes in this line that I liked, but I didn't manage to get them last time I went abroad. It seems they sold out easily and fast.

China Glaze OMG A UFO


Poslednji China Glaze lak koji sam kupila je bio OMG A UFO iz prošlogodišnje Hologlam kolekcije. Bez obzira na to što mi već dugo dva A England zelena holo laka stoje neisprobana, morala sam da kupim ovog zelenka jer sam želela dobar linearni zeleni holo lak, sa akcentom na "linearni". Takvi lakovi nisu široko zastupljeni kod nas i trenutno nam je ova kolekcija najbolji (jedini) izvor linearnih holosa, a OMG A UFO je jedini zeleni takav lak dostupan na našem tržištu. Lakovi iz Hologlam kolekcije koštaju 489 dinara, dakle skuplji su od redovnih China Glaze lakova. Nisam sigurna ima li ih u redovnoj ponudi kod distributera, ali ima ih kod uvoznika.


The last China Glaze polish I have bought is OMG A UFO form last year's Hologlam collection. Despite having two A England green holos among my untrieds for quite some time I had to have this one because I wanted a good linear green holo polish, with emphasis on "linear". That sort of polish in not widely available here and Hologlam collection is currently the only source of such polishes and OMG A UFO is the only green polish from that category available on our market.

Matching Manicures - Colour Blocking


Današnja tema usklađenog manikira je colour blocking. Odlučila sam da kombinujem tri Zoya teksturca - Chita, Dhara i Chyna. Nisam preterano zadovoljna krajnjim rezultatom jer više liči na novogodišnju jelku, ali to je što je.

Today's matching manicure theme is colour blocking. I have decided to use three Zoya Pixie Dusts - Chita, Dhara and Chyna. I am not thrilled with the result because it looks more like a Christmas tree, but it is what it is.

Simples - Mixed Dots


Nisam imala prilike da objavljujem pojedinačne članke za protekla dva Simples manikira, ali pošto su sve vreme tema razne tačkice onda ću danas objediniti tri teme. Prvo smo imali mešane tačke, što sam odlučila da interpretiram kao tačke različitih veličina, mada je ideja bila da budu različitih veličina i na nepravilnim razmacima. U kombinaciji boja koju sam odabrala pravilni razmaci su mi delovali prihvatljivije. Koristila sam Golden Rose Matte 07 i OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby. Šta sam dalje tačkala možete videti u nastavku članka.

I was unable to do individual posts for previous two Simples manicures, but since we've been doing dots all the time I shall incorporate three themes in this post. First we had mixed dots, which I decided to take as dots of different sizes, although the idea was to do dots of different sizes, but irregularly placed. I felt that equidistantly placed dots worked better with my chosen colours. I have used Golden Rose Matte 07 and OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby. You can see what else I did after page break.

Deborah Shine Tech 55


Deborah je onaj proizvođač čije lakove izbegavam da kupujem iz raznih razloga, a onda ih stave na sniženje ili rasprodaju i obavezno pokleknem (i zažalim). Shine Tech linija lakova je već neko vreme na sniženju, ali ne prodaju se svi po istoj ceni. Neke nijanse su 310 dinara, neke su 433 dinara. Pakovanje je od 8,5 ml.


Deborah is that one brand whose polishes I avoid out of different reasons, and then I cave in (and regret) when they put them on sale or give a discount. Polishes from Shine Tech line have been on sale for some time now, but not all polishes are sold at the same price. These come in 8.5 ml bottles.

piCture pOlish Mallard


Za australijski boutique brend piCture pOlish znam otkad sam počela da pratim lakoholičarske blogove, ali Mallard je prvi njihov lak koji sam morala da imam (i uspela da ga nabavim zahvaljuući ShineEye). PiCture pOlish je proizvođač koji s vremena na vreme u saradnji sa poznatim/popularnim/kvalitetnim noktoblogerkama pravi posebne nijanse lakova, a Mallard su napravili u saradnji sa Džen - The PolishAholic. Svi piCture pOlish lakovi su u bočicama od 11 ml i imaju odličnu uzanu pljosnatu četkicu. Možete ih naručiti sa nekog od mnogobrojnih sajtova koji prodaju indie i boutique lakove.


I'd learned about Australian boutique brand piCture pOlish when I first started to read nail polish blogs, but Mallard was the first of their polishes that I simply had to have (and managed to get it thanks to ShineEye). PiCture pOlish is a brand that makes collaboration shades with well known/successful/high quality bloggers from time to time and Mallard is product of such collaboration with Jen - The PolishAholic. All piCture pOlish polishes come in 11 ml bottles and have great thin flat brush. You can order these polishes from many e-tailers that carry indie and boutique nail polish brands.

Morgan Taylor Better In Leather


Better in Leather je jedan od šest lakova iz Glam Rock kolekcije za zimu 2013. godine. Imala sam nekoliko favorita među zimskim Morgan Taylor lakovima, ali ovaj je bio na vrhu liste. Mislim da možete videti zašto - crn je i ima srebrne šljokice različitih dimenzija. Poput drugih Morgan Taylor lakova ni ovaj ne sadrži formalin, dibutilftalat i toluen i nije testiran na životinjama. Bočice su od 15 ml i koštaju 864 dinara. O novinama u Morgan Taylor ponudi se možete informisati na Morgan Taylor Srbija stranici, a lakove možete nabaviti kod uvoznika GP Contour u Novom Sadu i Beogradu.


Better in Leather was one of six polishes from Glam Rock collection for winter 2013. I had several favourites from Morgan Taylor winter collections, but this one was on the top of my list. I think it is clear why - it is black and has silver glitter in several sizes. Like other Morgan Taylor polishes, this one is big 3-free and cruelty free. Bottles hold 15 ml of product and have wide flat brush.

MoYou Nails 221


Danas je poslednji dan Japanizma, na kome učestvujem svakog dana tako da nisam bila u prilici da spremim poseban manikir za Matching Manicures, ali kako je tema danas pečatiranje mislim da mogu makar da vam predstavim još jednu MoYou Nails pločicu i da na taj način podržim balkanske beauty blogerke koje će danas objaviti svoje manikire. Nekoliko slika sa ove pločice ste već mogli da vidite na mom Instagramu i na Facebook stranici, kao i u člancima o lakovima koje sam koristila kao bazu za neke od ovih menikira.

Today is the last day of Japanizam convention, which I take part in every day so I was unable to do a Matching manicure for this week, but since today's theme is stamping I thought I could do a review of another MoYou Nails image plate and support fellow beauty bloggers who will do stamping manicures today. You may have already seen some of these images on my Instagram and on my Facebook page, as well as in articles about several polishes I have used as base colours here.

Sephora Midnight Crawl


Prošle godine sam kupila nekoliko ovih Sephora lakića, a onda nikako nisam stizala da ih nosim. Generalno mi se dopada njihova formula, četkica (posebno na ovim starim pakovanjima), sama bočica i cena na sniženju. Čini mi se da su ovi poslednjom prilikom bili ispod 100 dinara, što mislim da je okej cena za lakić od 5 ml. Verovatno se još mogu naći neki od ovih starih lakova i preporučujem vam da ih potražite.


Last year I bought several of these old Sephora polishes and then never got to wear them. I generally like their formula, brush (especially on these old bottles), bottle itself and discounted price. Last time I checked these were sold for under 1 €, which is decent price for 5 ml polish. I believe these still can be found so I suggest you look for them.

Trešnjin cvet za Japanizam


Juče je počeo sedmi Japanizam i mislim da je bilo prirodno da napravim prigodan manikir. Ovom prilikom mi to nije bilo teško jer imam ove sjajne dekale sa motivom trešnjinog drveta u cvatu.

The seventh Japanizam convention opened yesterday so it was only natural for me to do a coordinating manicure. This time it was easy for me to it do because I have these great cherry tree in bloom water decals.

Golden Rose Color Expert 32


Pre nekoliko meseci Golden Rose je odlučio da izbaci novu liniju lakova, a uvoznik se smilovao i tu kolekciju uvezao, što se nisu udostojili da učine sa daleko zanimljivom Galaxy linijom. Nije mi jasno zašto Golden Rose svako malo izbacuje novu liniju lakova, često istih boja i kvaliteta kao neke prethodne, umesto samo da doda nove boje postojećim linijama. Color Expert linija meni deluje samo kao prepakovano izdanje Rich Color lakova. Zapremina im je skoro ista (RC 10,5 ml, CE 10,2 ml), četkica im je ista i kvalitet formule je neujednačen među bojama. Osnovna kolekcija, koja je inicijalno brojala 60 boja, već ima dopunu od devet novih boja. Lakovi iz ove linije se prodaju po ceni od 99 do 120 dinara.


Several months ago Golden Rose decided to place another line of polishes on the market. Now, I don't get why Golden Rose feels compelled to develop new lines of polishes so often, especially if they contain the same shades as some of the existing lines and are of equal quality, instead of just adding new shades to the existing lines. To me Color Expert line of polishes looks like repackaged Rich Color line. You get about the same amount of product (10.5 ml of Rich Color to 10.2 ml of Color Expert), they have the same brush and inconsistent formula across the range of colours. The basic range, which had 60 shades at first, already has an addition of nine new colours. These polishes retail for about 1 €.

Jun


Da li vam se desilo da odlučite da napravite pauzu sa kupovinom jer nemate gde da držite stvari, a onda da dobijete gomilu stvari baš iz kategorije koju ste odabrali da ne kupujete? Meni se to desilo u junu. Sa preko 350 lakova shvatila sam da je vreme za čistku, ali skoro za svaki lak koji sam uspela da odstranim iz kolekcije dobila sam drugi lak. Deo lakova je prodat u humanitarnoj blorasprodaji, deo sam poklonila. Još uvek imam lakove za prodaju ili razmenu i njih možete videti na mojoj pinterest tabli ili krpicama. Ukoliko želite da kupite neki možete mi pustiti mejl ili poruku preko Facebooka.

Has it ever happened to you to decide not to buy stuff any more because you have no space to keep them and then you receive quite a lot of stuff from that exact category? It happened to me this June. With over 350 nail polishes in collection I have decided it was time for purge, but nearly every polish I have eliminated has been replaced by a new one. I have sold part of my polishes in the big charity blog sale, and I have given away some of them.
