MoYou Nails 65

Crni pečatni lak preko Essie Merino Cool

Ove godine nisam obeležila Dan crnih mačaka (17. avgust) prigodnim manikirom uprkos činjenici da imam više setova nalepnica i dekala sa crnim mačkama pa čak i ovu sjajnu MoYou Nails pločicu sa različitim mačkama. Mnoge lakoholičarke su mačkoljubi, ja među njima, te se nadam da će i vama, mojim čitaocima, ova pločica biti zanimljiva.

I haven't done an occasion-appropriate mani for this years Black Cat Appreciation Day (August 17th) despite the fact that I have several sets of black cat sticers and water decals and even this great MoYou Nails image plate with cats. Many polishaholics are cat-lovers, myself included, and I hope that you, my readers, will find this stamping plate interesting.

Sephora Jungle Playground


Danas vam predstavljam još jedan od onih lakova koje sam kupila u momentu neizdrža, a potom zanemarila. Ovaj sam zanemarila sasvim neopravdano jer je u pitanju veoma lep i uz to kvalitetan lak. Žao mi je što ga Sephora nije uvrstila u sada više ne tako novu postavku lakova. Ako uspete da ga nađete u nekoj Sefori pored kase nemojte propustiti da ga uzmete jer je prilično jedinstven.


Today I am showing you another polish I have bought when I had polishaholics' itch and I have forgotten about it afterwards. Unjustly, if I may add, because this is a very pretty and quality polish. I am sorry Sephora hasn't incorporated it into its now not so new nail polish range. I suggest you get it if you find it in a discount bin because it is quite unique.

OPI Little Peanuts

Savršena kombinacija #opi #halloween #nailpolish #peanuts #snoopy

A photo posted by Cajkine kandže (@cajkinekandze) on



OPI ove sezone odaje počast jednom od mojih omiljenih stripova - Peanuts. Ukoliko vam ovo ime ne zvuči poznato sigurna sam da ćete prepoznati imena junaka kojima su lakovi iz ove kolekcije inspirisani - Snupi, Čarli Braun, Lusi i Lajnus van Pelt. Naravno da se kroz stripove provlači još mnogo ličnosti, ali ova četiri junaka su inspirisala lakove u ovogodišnjoj kolekciji povodom Noći veštica. Ova kolekcija je kod nas stigla za sajam kozmetike, a sada se može naći i u Prima apotekama i to u vidu mini seta koji vam danas predstavljam i u pojedinačnim bočicama standardne zapremine. OPI mini lakovi imaju po 3,75 ml i počevši od Brazil kolekcije imaju širu četkicu.

OPI To Be or Not To Beagle i OPI Where’s My Blanket??? preko OPI Good Grief!

This season OPI pays tribute to one of my favourite comic book series - Peanuts. If you don't recognize the series' name you will surely recognize the name of characters that served as an inspiration for this collection - Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy and Linus van Pelt. Naturally, there are many other characters in Peanuts comic books, but these four have served as an inspiration for this year's OPI Halloween collection. This collection comes in individual full size bottles and as Little Peanuts set, that I get to show you today. OPI mini bottles contain 3.75 ml of polish and since Brazil collection they have wider brush.

Matching Manicures - crveno


Kada sam za žuti usklađeni manikir izvukla NailsIT Daisy podsetila sam se i drugih zapostavljenih NailsIT lakova. Među njima je Angelique, koju sam tada odmah morala da namažem. Nosila sam je na sajam kozmetike, a sada je ponovo nosim za ovaj usklađeni manikir. Sada mi je žao što za plavi usklađeni manikir nisam nosila NailsIT Remembrance :D
Dva sloja NailsIT NailsIT Angelique preko Zoya Diana.

When I have pulled out NailsIT Daisy for yellow matching manicure I have reminded myself of other forgotten NailsIT polishes. Among them is Angelique, which I had to put on immediately. I have worn it for cosmetics fair then and now I'm wearing it again. I am a bit sorry I haven't painted my nails NailsIT Remembrance for blue matching manicures :D
This is two coats of NailsIT Angelique over Zoya Diana.

Qgirl 010


Dok iščekujem da mi stignu dva paketića sa novim Born Pretty pločicama za pečatiranje isprobala sam jednu od drugih pločica koje BPS nudi na sajtu. U pitanju je Qgirl pločica 010.

https://www.bornprettystore.com/nail-stamp-image-plate-diamond-wave-rhombus-pattern-qgirl-p-16459.html

While waiting for two orders of Born Pretty stamping plates to arrive I gave another image plate BPS offers a go. This is Qgirl stamping plate 010.

Essence Thermo 04 The Heat Is On


U septembru mi je bilo zadovoljstvo da se sretnem sa drugaricama lakoholičarkama, među kojima je bila i Shine Eye, koja mi je donela par Essence lakova koji nisu niti će biti dostupni kod nas. Posebno mi je bila zanimljiva linija termalnih lakova, koji se mogu nabaviti samo u Müller prodavnicama, a među njima mi je najinteresantniji bio crveni lak. Ovi lakovi imaju 8 ml i verujem da koštaju oko 2,5 €.


I had the pleasure of going out with some of my fellow polishaholics this last September. Among them was Shine Eye, who had brought me a couple of Essence nail polishes that are unavailable in Serbia. I was especially interested in line of thermal polishes, which is exclusive to Müller stores, and to me the most interesting was the red one. These polishes come in 8 ml bottles and retail for about 2.5 €.

OPI Christmas Gone Plaid


Praznične kolekcije lakova su mi retko zanimljive jer obično sadrže ili već više puta viđene nijanse, uglavnom crvene i zelene, ili sadrže suviše šljokica, koje ja retko nosim. Ovogodišnja OPI przanična kolekcija je napravljena u saradnji sa Gwen Stefani i iako sadrži za moje shvatanje suviše crvenih lakova ima i nekoliko pravih bisera. Jedan od njih je Christmas Gone Plaid. Lakovi iz ove kolekcije se sada mogu naći u prodaji u Prima apotekama.


I rarely find holiday nail polish collections interesting because they usually consist of deja vu shades, mostly reds and greens, and they tend to have too many glittery polishes, which I seldom wear. This year's OPI holidays collection is made in cooperation with Gwen Stefani and even though it has too many red polishes for my liking it also has several true gems. One of those gems is Christmas Gone Plaid.

Morgan Taylor Simply Spellbound


Za sajam je stigla jesenja kolekcija Morgan Taylor lakova. Kolekcija se zove Enchantment i sadrži šest lakova koji imaju prilično dobra tematska imena. Volela bih da u takvoj kolekciji vidim crvenu kremu nazvanu po Penu Džiletu, no to će izgleda morati da sačeka nekog drugog proizvođača ili neku drugu kolekciju lakova. Morgan Taylor lakovi ne sadrže formalin, dibutilftalat i toluen i nisu testirani na životinjama. Bočice su od 15 ml. 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.


Among other things that arrived in time for cosmetics fair was Morgan Taylor autumn collection. It is called Enchantment and consists of six polishes with quite fine theme-fitting names. I wish there was a red creme polish named after Penn Jillette, but I'll have to wait for some other brand or collection to come up with that one. Morgan Taylor polishes are big 3-free and cruelty free. They come in 15 ml bottle and have wide flat brush.

N.Nail tačkalice


Od svih načina za ukrašavanje noktiju smatram da je tačkanje najjednostavniji i uz to pruža najveći spektar mogućnosti. Zato verujem da je dobro uložiti u dobar set tačkalica koji će vam omogućiti da izvedete više različitih šara ili kombinacija dezena. Poslednjih nedelja sam sa uživanjem isprobavala ovaj petodelni set N.Nail tačkalica, a rezultate možete videti u nastavku članka.


Out of all nail art techniques I find dotting to be the simplest and the most versatile one. That is why I firmly believe that it is good to invest in a good set of dotting tools that will let you do a diverse selection of patterns. I have had the pleasure to try this five piece N.Nail dotting tools set and you can see the results after the page break.

MoYou Nails 21


Današnja MoYou Nails pločica je jedna od starijih u njihovoj ponudi. Kada skratim nokte vraćam se starijim pločicama jer su na njima motivi za pun nokat manji od onih na novim pločicama i stoga mogu lepše njih da pokažem.

MoYou Nails image plate I have prepared for today is one from their older collection. When I cut down my nails I go back to these older stamping plates because thir full nail images are smaller than the ones on newer plates and they fit my shorter nails better than the newer ones.

Essence Sparkle Sand Top Coat


Među Essence novitetima koji su stigli u Lilly drogerije se našao samo jedan meni zanimljiv. U pitanju je toper koji od običnog laka pravi teksturni. Bočica je od 8 ml i košta 269 dinara.


The only New in Town Essence product that had caught my eye is this topper for textured finish. It comes in 8 ml bottle and retails for about 2 €.

Don Juan Excessive EX11


Davno sam pisala o Don Juan Excessive EX14, a EX11 (privlačnog li imena) nikako da dođe na red za predstavljanje. Delom zato što sam imala zanimljivije lakove koje sam želela da nosim, a delom pošto me je tekstura ovog razočarala. Don Juan Excessive Rough & Rich kolekcija sastoji se od 18 šljokičavih lakova. Pakovanje je od 12 ml, a cena oko 250 dinara.


It's been awhile since I've written about Don Juan Excessive EX14 and I never seem to be getting round to wearing EX11 (what an attractive name). That was partly because I had more interesting polishes I wanted to wear and partly because I was disappointed by texture of this polish. Don Juan Excessive Rough & Rich collection consists of 18 glittery polishes. They come in 12 ml bottles and retail for about 2 €.

Catrice After Eight


Ne znam da li ste primetili, ali već dugo sam u "zelenoj fazi" i najradije kupujem zelene lakove. Posebno su mi zanimljive zelene nijanse poput Aura On The Edge, China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald, Deborah Emerald Bijoux i sličnih. Naravno da onda nisam mogla da odolim prilici da udomim Šmizlin Catrice After Eight.


You may have noticed that I've been in "green phase" and that I mostly buy green polishes. The shades I find particularly interesting are the ones that are similar to Aura On The Edge, China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald, Deborah Emerald Bijoux. How could I have then resisted giving Šmizla's Catrice After Eight new and loving home?

Kiko Mirror 616 Silver


Jeste li ponekada poželeli da vam nokti izgledaju kao da ste ih potopili u tečni metal? Kiko je prošle godine napravio kolekciju lakova koji su davali baš takav izgled. Kolekcija je prigodno bila nazvana Mirror i sadržavala je petnaest lakova. Oni na žalost nisu više u ponudi i ne mogu vam predložiti šta da potražite kao zamenu za takve lakove u boji, ali prilično dobra zamena za ovaj je OPI Push & Shove.


Have you ever wished your nails looked as if you had just dipped them in liquid metal? Last year Kiko offered a LE collection of just such polishes. This collection was appropriately named Mirror and it contained fifteen nail polishes. These are unfortunately no longer available and I can't recommend you any dupes for coloured polishes, but a good dupe for this one is OPI Push & Shove.

Matching Manicures - žuto


Danas smo se užutele. Pošto mi se mramoriranje prošle nedelje svidelo odlučila sam da pokušam da ga izvedem sa žutaćima, ali ovog puta manje uspešno. Zato sam odlučila da umesto nail arta pokažem lak koji dugo nisam nosila - NailsIT Daisy. Ovo su dva sloja preko jednog sloja OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana.

We're turning yellow today. Since I liked last week's water marbling I decided to give it another go, but this time with less success. So insteda of doing nail art I decided to show you a polish I haven't worn in a long time - NailsIT Daisy. This is two coats over a coat of OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana.

24. sajam kozmetike Dodir Pariza


Danas i sutra se u hali 2 beogradskog Sajma održava 24. sajam kozmetike Dodir Pariza. Uz dobar plan i još bolje društvo (Jeca, Tića, Meri, Ivona, između ostalog) danas sam ga obišla. Pažnju sam, naravno, posvetila proizvodima za prirodne nokte i veoma mi je drago što sam na sajmu našla novitete iz te kategorije.

OPI Avoplex nega ruku i noktiju


Kako kreće hladnije i vetrovito vreme, našoj koži i noktima (i kosi) potrebna je dodatna nega i zaštita. U suprotnom rizikujemo da nam koža ogrubi, počne da se peruta ili čak da ispuca, da se zanoktice zakidaju i da nokti postanu krti. Zato valja pojačati negu hranljivim kremama i uljima. Poslednjih par nedelja sam imala zadovoljstvo da isprobavam dva Avoplex ulja za zanoktice i kremu za intenzivnu negu ruku i noktiju. Avoplex je OPI linija proizvoda za negu ruku i zanoktica. Sastoji se od ulja za zanoktice, sredstva za nežno uklanjanje zanoktica (jednog od retkih kod nas dostupnih koje za aktivan sastojak ima AHA, a ne KOH), sredstva za pranje ruku, losiona za ruke i kreme za intenzivnu negu. Zajednički sastojci ovih proizvoda su avokadovo ulje, fosfolipidi i vitamini A, B1, B2, D i E (u vidu tokoferola i tokotrienola). Tri proizvoda koja vam predstavljam možete naći u svakoj Prima apoteci, a za vikend ćete moći da ih kupite i na OPI štandu (štand 54) na 24. sajmu kozmetike Dodir Pariza.

As the weather gets colder and windy, our skin and nails (and hair) need additional care and protection. Otherwise we risk getting rough or cracked skin, splits in eponychium, hangnails and brittle nails. That is why we should increase nourishment with creams and oils. I have had the pleasure of trying two Avoplex cuticle and nail oils and intensive hand and nail care cream. Avoplex is OPI's line of hand and cuticle care products line. It consists of cuticle oils, gentle cuticle remover (one of very few cuticle removers on Serbian market that has AHAs instead of KOH), hand sanitiser, hand lotion and intensive care hand cream. All Avoplex products contain avocado oil, phospholipids and vitamins vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and E (as tocopherols and tocotrienols).

Zoya Payton


Lepo vreme sam uglavnom koristila za slikanje novih lakova, ali nisam zanemarila ni one koje imam već neko vreme, a koji zahtevaju sunce da bljesnu punim sjajem. Jedan od njih je Zoya Payton. 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 Sunu, a o novitetima se možete informisati na Zoya Srbija Facebook stranici. Ultra Sun će učestvovati ovog vikenda na 24. sajmu kozmetike Dodir Pariza i možete ih posetiti na štandovima 130 i 131. Spremili su popust od 10%.

I have used fine weather to take photos of my new polishes, but I haven't neglected the older ones that shine their brightest in sunshine. One of such polishes is Zoya Payton. 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.

Morgan Taylor Under The Stars


Danas vam napokon predstavljam Morgan Taylor lak koji me je privukao ovom brendu - Under The Stars. 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.

Matching Manicures - mramoriranje


Mramoriranje uz pomoć vode (ebru) je istočnjačka tehnika ukrašavanja papira. Kapanjem boja na posebno pripremljenu površinu vode i mešanjem tih boja dobija se šara slična onima koje viđamo u kalcedonima i ta se šara može preneti na papir ili tkaninu. Blago modifikovana, ova tehnika se prenela i u lakoholičarski svet, a ove nedelje je tema usklađenog manikira.

Water marbling (ebru) is oriental technique of paper embellishing. You can get designs similar to those in different forms of chalcedony by adding colours to specially prepared water surface and by mixing them and these designs can be transferred onto paper or textile. Slightly modified, this technique translated well into nail art form and it is the theme of this week's Matching Manicures.

Staklene turpije


U tekstu o alatu za skraćivanje noktiju sam ukratko spomenula staklene turpije, a kako sam u međuvremenu nabavila još jednu volela bih da uradim uporedno predstavljanje svih staklenih turpija koje imam. To su: kineska mala, Titania 1251 B, Mont Bleu BC-M08 i Trind.

I have mentioned glass nail files in my post about tools for nails shortening and shaping and since I've bought another on in the meantime I wanted to do a comparative post about four glass nail files I own. Those are a small Chinese one, Titania 1251 B, Mont Bleu BC-M08 and Trind.

Born Pretty Holo Polish 05


Debbie The Crumpet je u nedavnom predstavljanju svojih holo lakova rekla da nema veselijeg laka od narandžastog holosa, što je izjava sa kojom se zdušno slažem. Danas imam zadovoljstvo da vam predstavim jedini narandžasti holo lak koji imam - Born Pretty Holo Polish 05. Moram primetiti da je BPS nedavno udvostručio ionako visoke cene svojih holo lakova, što je potez koji mi je nejasan. Ovo su mali lakovi, od svega 6 ml i trenutna cena koja se kreće od 22 do skoro 30 dolara stavlja ove lakove u isti cenovni rang sa high end brendovima.


Debbie The Crumpet has stated in her recent stash video that orange holo is the happiest polish one can put on their nails and I wholeheartedly agree. It is my pleasure to show you the only orange holo polish I own - Born Pretty Holo Polish 05. I do have to notice that BPS has recently doubled the price of their holo polishes, which is a move I don't understand. These are mini polishes and their new price of 22 to nearly 30 $ for 6 ml of product puts them in the same price range with high end brands.

Septembar


Septembar mi je prošao prilično brzo, ali bio je bogat novitetima. Uzela sam nekoliko Essence proizvoda koji se povlače iz proizvodnje i jedan toper iz nove Essence ponude. Zahvaljujući dragoj Shine Eye sam došla do dva nova Essence laka koja se kod nas neće pojaviti. U trenu lakoneizdrža sam uzela Essie Parka Perfect i Mind Your Mittens. Tu je i paketić OPI preparata iz Avoplex linije za negu ruku i noktiju, dušu dao za negu sada tokom predstojećih svežijih dana. Takođe mi je stigla nova grupa stvari za recenziju sa Born Pretty Store i još nešto sa KKCenterHK. Ovomesečni pièce de résistance je raritetni Dior Liquorice.

September has gone rather quickly, but it was abundant with new stuff. I got several discontinued Essence products as well as one from newly arrived selection. Thanks to my dear Shine Eye I got my hands also on two of new Essence products that won't be available in Serbia. I have also gotten a couple of old Essie polishes - Parka Perfect and Mind Your Mittens. There was also a set of Avoplex by OPI hand and nail care products, great for teh forthcoming cold weather. I have also gotten some new stuff for reviews from Born Pretty Store and KKCenterHK. This month's pièce de résistance is a HTF Dior Liquorice.
