OPI A Roll in the Hague


Posle zelenih, plavih i sivih lakova, sada su narandžasti lakovi stigli na red da ustanovim tačno koje mi nijanse odgovaraju. To mi je najlakše da uradim tako što ću uzeti najmanje pakovanje laka koje mogu da nađem, a manjih od OPI beba mislim da nema (3,75 ml). U pojedinim Prima apotekama su zimus mogli da se kupe pojedinačni miniji po ceni od dvestotinak dinara. Ne znam da li se i dalje ovako prodaju, ali vredi ih potražiti ako vam se nekada desilo da želite da uzmete samo jedan lakić iz nekog seta. Šanse da ćete ga naći nisu baš male.


After green, blue and grey nail polishes, now it is time for me to find out which shades of orange suit me. I find that easiest to do by getting the smallest bottle of polish I can find and I think there are no smaller bottles than OPI babies (3.75 ml).

Crystal Nails Holoprism 400


Kada sam nedavno za poređenje izvukla ovaj lak pomislila sam da bih mogla i da ga nosim. Ionako nas vreme služi, a nema boljeg vremena za holose od sunčanog dana. Crystal Nails lakovi imaju 15 ml i nažalost sadrže toluen, makar ga ovaj moj sadrži. Holoprism kolekcija inače košta 970 dinara, ali trenutno su svi lakovi na sniženju ili su možda na trajnoj rasprodaji i koštaju 200 dinara. Mogu se nabaviti preko sajta ili direktno u salonu Harmony Crystal u Beogradu.


When I recently pulled out this polish for comparison, I thought I might also wear it. We've been having some fine weather and there is not better time to wear a holo polish than on a sunny day. Crystal Nails polishes come in 15 ml bottles and they sadly contain toluene, at least this shade does.

Matching Manicures - V-manikir


Ove nedelje je usklađeni manikir u znaku mog omiljenog slova - V. Isprva sam mislila da uradim veoma jednostavan ševron manikir, ali sam se onda setila Evanorinog manikira koji se pre dve godine pojavio u filmu Oz the Great and Powerful. Film nisam gledala, ali nokte sam zapazila i zapamtila zahvaljujući blogerima.

This week's mani is marked by my favourite letter - V. At first I wanted to do a simple chevron mani, but then I remembered Evanora's manicure that was featured in Oz the Great and Powerful. I haven't seen the movie, but I noticed and remembered mani thanks to bloggers.

Born Pretty BP-65


Koliko god govorila i ponavljala da nisam ženstvena devojka i da me ženskasti motivi generalno ne privlače, na cveće sam slaba. Kako na pravo cveće, koje uglavnom bezuspešno pokušavam da gajim na terasi, tako i na cvetne motive na odeći, u kosi, na noktima... Zbog toga sam odabrala i ovu pločicu.

https://www.bornprettystore.com/chic-rose-flower-nail-stamping-template-image-plate-born-pretty-bp65-p-20038.html

As much as I keep saying that I'm not a girly girl and that I am generally not attracted to feminine motifs, I do have a soft spot for flowers. For real flowers, that I mostly unsuccessfully try to keep on my balcony, as well as for floral motifs on clothing, in hair, on nails... That is why I chose this image plate.

MoYou Nails 304


Možda je malo rano za tematske manikire za Noć veštica, ali znam da među mojim čitateljkama ima onih koje poput mene ne mare za taj praznik, a tipične motive za taj datum nose tokom cele godine. Bilo da ste u malo mračnijem fazonu ili samo želite da nađete neke dobre strašne (ili "strašne") motive za žurku u oktobru, bacite pogled na ovu MoYou Nails pločicu. Predlažem da kao muzičku podlogu pustite Noć na Golom brdu ili Nox Arcana.

MoYou Nails Image Plate 304
http://moyounails.com/shop/image-plate-304/

It may be a bit early to do some Halloween mani, but I know that there are among my readers those who don't really care about that holiday and wear motifs typical for that date all year round. Whether you prefer dark style or just want to find some good scary (or "scary") designs for a party in October, do give this MoYou Nails stamping plate a look. I suggest you play Night at Bald Mountain or Nox Arcana as musical background.

Essence Colour & go Do You Speak Love, Let's get lost i Break through


U jednom trenutku sam spomenula kao neću kupovati nove Essence lakove jer već imam zalihu lakova iz Colour & go linije, a skoro sve ih koristim samo za nail art ili za pečatiranje. Uglavnom to nisu boje kakve nosim same po sebi pa zato nisu do sada ni dobile pojedinačno predstavljanje na blogu. Dva od tri laka koja danas pokazujem su upravo iz te kategorije. Mislim da se sva tri još uvek mogu naći po policama sa robom na sniženju.


I have mentioned at some point that I won't be buying new Essence polishes as I already have quite a substantial stash of their Colour & go polishes yet I use them almost exclusively for nail art or stamping. Those usually aren't colours I'd wear on their own so they haven't gotten their own blog posts. Two of three polishes I am showing you today are that sort of polish.

OPI At Your Quebec & Call


OPI je nedavno promenio izgled nalepnice na dnu svojih bočica, nalepnice koja sadrže sve važne podatke o tom laku - ime, šifru boje, bar kod, serijski broj bočice, sastav... Boju teksta su vratili iz zelene u crnu, ali i sam dizajn nalepnice je promenjen. Ovo nije prvi put da su napravili takvu izmenu. Lak koji vam danas pokazujem je iz takozvane "black label" ere, vremena pre nego što je OPI izbacio iz sastava toluen i dibutil ftalat, vremena kada su podaci na nalepnicama bili ispisani crnom bojom. Ovi lakovi se sada teško mogu naći, a ja sam na ovaj sasvim slučajno nabasala pre par godina u apoteci Biljana i Luka.


OPI has recently changed the look of the bottom label on their bottles, the label that has all the important information about that polish - name, colour code, bar code, batch code, ingredients... They have reverted from green letters to black and they have changed the overall design of the label. This isn't the first time they've done it, though. Polish I am showing you today comes from so-called "black label era", time before OPI was 3-free, time when their labels first had black lettering. These polishes are very difficult to find and I have accidentally stumbled upon this one some years ago.

Eveline miniMAX 406


Poslednji od četiri laka koja mi je Mala Palčica poslala je ovaj Eveline miniMAX. Eveline lakovi jesu dostupni kod nas, ali izbor boja je u najboljem slučaju oskudan. O miniMAX liniji sam čula samo pozitivne stvari i niska cena im posebno ide u prilog, ali meni zanimljivih boja nema kod nas. Nadam se da će se uvoznik ugledati na svoj pandan iz Hrvatske i uvesti nam i holo nijanse. Zahvalna sam Maloj Palčici što mi je omogućila da probam ovaj.


The last of four polishes Mala Palčica sent me is this Eveline miniMAX. Eveline polishes are available in Serbia, but choice of colours is at best poor. I have heard only good things about miniMAX line and its low price only goes to its advantage, but shades I might find interesting aren't available here. I do hope our importer will look up to its Croation counterpart and bring Eveline holos to Serbia. I am thankful to Mala Palčica for making it possible for me to try this one.

Matching Manicures - pastel


Za neonski tematski manikir predvidljivo nisam imala materijal, ali za pastelni neočekivano imam.

One could rightly expect that I don't have what to make a neon manicure with, but surprisingly I do have means to do a pastel one.

Born Pretty BP-67


Osim Born Pretty Store laka koji sam vam pokazala u sredu dobila sam za predstavljanje i par pločica za pečatiranje. Ovu sam odabrala da prvu pokažem jer se trenutno nalazi na sniženju od 50%, a motivi su zanimljivi pa mislim da vredi da naručite pločicu dok je na ovakvom popustu.

https://www.bornprettystore.com/arrow-pattern-nail-stamping-template-image-plate-born-pretty-bp67-p-20040.html

I have received two stamping plates to review along Born Pretty Store nail polish I have already shown you. I have chosen to review this stamping plate first because it is currently at 50% discount. I think motifs are interesting and it would be worth your while to order it while it is on sale.

MoYou Nails 303


Posle iznenadne zime vraćam se toplijim temama. U ovom slučaju životinjama iz toplijih krajeva, čije se šare nalaze na MoYou Nails pločici 303 iz Concept kolekcije.

MoYou Nails Image Plate 303

After sudden wintry feel I am returning to warmer themes. This time using fur patterns of warmer climate animals, that can be found on MoYou Nails Concept collection stamping plate 303.

Born Pretty Chameleon Nail Polish #215


Ne tako davno Born Pretty Store je ponudio svoju kolekciju multihromatskih topera, a ja danas imam zadovoljstvo da vam predstavim jedan od njih. Born Pretty Chameleon lakovi se nalaze u istom pakovanju kao i njihovi holo lakovi, bočici od 6 ml. Puna cena im je 12,88 dolara po laku, ali se veoma često nalaze na sniženjima te se ovaj sada može naći upola cene.


Not that long ago Born Pretty Store developed their own line of multichrome toppers and today I have the pleasure to show you one of them.Born Pretty Chameleon nail polishes come in the same packaging as their holo polishes, 6 ml bottle. They retail for $12.88, but they are often on sales and this one can be bought at the moment at half a price.

Smitten Polish Cherries and Chocolate


Za poslednji rođendan sam iskombinovala vaučere koje sam dobila na ProcrastiNails darivanju sa svojim novcem i naručila nekoliko nama nedostupnih lakova sa Hypnotic Polish sajta. Zamalo da mi se cela narudžbina sastoji samo od Dance Legend lakova, ali kako nisu imali sve sa moje liste želja, a još nisam stigla do granice od 50 € ubacila sam i jedan Smitten Polish lak. Smitten Polish je američki indie brend, a svi lakovi su 3-free i ručno su pravljeni. Bočice su od 15 ml, a ovaj lak košta 11,85 € i može se nabaviti samo na Hypnotic Polish.


For my last birthday I combined gift cards I won at ProcrastiNails giveaway with my own money and ordered several polishes that are unavailable in Serbia from Hypnotic Polish. The entire order nearly consisted of Dance Legend polishes only, but they didn't have everything from my wish list and I sill had some money left so I put a Smitten Polish in my virtual basket. Smitten Polish is an American indie brand, all polishes are 3-free and hand-made. They come in 15 ml bottles, this one is Hypnotic Polish store exclusive and retails for 11,85 €.

Born Pretty BP-28


Danas ne učestvujem u tematskom manikiru jer je tema "neon". Imam samo jedan neonac, koji sam već predstavljala na blogu (Color Club Explosive) i, iskreno, nemam nameru da ga ponovo koristim. Zato se okrećem pločici koju sam koristila za prethodni usklađeni manikir - Born Pretty BP-28.

https://www.bornprettystore.com/mixed-abstract-patterns-nail-stamp-template-image-plate-born-pretty-bp28-p-17911.html

I am not matching my manicure with other girls today because this week's theme is "neon". I only have one neon polish (Color Club Explosive) and I've already shown it on blog and, to be honest, I do not intend to use it again. That is why I am turning to the stamping plate I've used for the previous Matching Manicure - Born Pretty BP-28.

MoYou Nails 302


Malo mi je neobično da pred početak leta radim manikire sa novogodišnjom/božićnom tematikom, ali jedna od MoYou Nails pločica iz Concept kolekcije ima upravo zimske praznike za temu i svakako bih vam je predstavila do avgusta, a računam da nikada nije prerano početi pripreme za slavlje.

MoYou Nails Image Plate 302
http://moyounails.com/shop/image-plate-302/

I find it a bit odd to do Christmas-themed manis at the beginning of summer, but one of MoYou Nails stamping plates from Concept collection has winter holidays for theme and I'd certainly have to show it buy August. I also think it is never too early to start preparations for holiday celebrations.

Balea univerzalne kreme


Već neko vreme su u DMu dostupne Balea kreme u limenkama sa retro motivima. Ja sam slaba na limenke pa sam kupila sve ove kreme koje su se do sada pojavile, iako sam znala da mi sasvim sigurno neće odgovarati. Kod nas su se do sada pojavile "My Golden Twenties" "50's Forever" i "Sail Away", a "Blüten-Duft" se još nije pojavila kod nas. Izgleda da su sve ograničene kolekcije i prve dve se više i ne mogu naći, a Sail Away je trenutno aktuelna. Pakovanje je od 30 ml i košta 119 dinara.

Balea universal creams in retro tins have been available in DM drugstores for a while now. I have a fondness for tins so I bought all of these creams that have so far been put on market, despite knowing they certainly won't suit me. "My Golden Twenties" "50's Forever" and "Sail Away" have so far been available in Serbia, and "Blüten-Duft" (available in Austrian DMs) still hasn't hit our stores. It seems that all of these are limited editions and once a new version gets on the shelves the older ones get withdrawn. These creams come in 30 ml tins and retail for about 1 €.

Jade Express Finish So Green i Magic Blue


Kada sam prošle godine od drugarice dobila gomilu starih lakova među njima je bio i par Jade lakova. Jade je ime pod kojim se Maybelline proizvodi prodaju u Nemačkoj, ali ne znam zašto se tamo zovu tako, a ne Maybelline. Verujem da su ova dva laka bila aktuelna krajem devedesetih, mada možda i grešim. Ova dva sam zadržala jer su mi boje bile zanimljive - jedan me je podsetio na jedan od omiljenih lakova, a nikada nisam videla lak sličan drugom.


When I received a pile of nail polish from a friend last year, there was a couple of Jade polishes among them. Jade is name Maybelline products are sold in Germany,, but I don't know why that is the case and why they aren't known as Maybelline there. I believe that these two polishes were sold in the second half of the 90's, but I may be wrong. I have kept these two because one of them reminds me of one of my favourite polishes and the other one is like nothing I've seen before.

OPI Brazil Beach Sandies mini set


OPI je prošle godine uz Brazil kolekciju izbacio i netipičan set mini lakova uz Copacababies set, koji sadrži mini verzije četiri laka iz kolekcije. Beach Sandies set sadrži četiri sasvim nova laka, koji se na žalost nisu prodavali u velikim zasebnim bočicama. Da jesu uzela bih samo žućka, ovako sam morala da uzmem ceo set. Jedva sam ga našla i to zahvaljujući pomoći forumskih prijatelja, a ovo lepo vreme me je navelo da vam ga pokažem.

Last year OPI released two sets of mini polishes with their Brazil collection. There were Copacababies, which contained mini versions of four Brazil polishes, but there was also a LE set Beach Sandies, which contained four liquid sand polishes that weren't available in full size bottles. Had they been available individually I'd have only gotten the yellow one, but in the end I had to take the entire set. This lovely weather is perfect time for me to show it to you.

Matching Manicures - cveće


Tema ovonedeljnog usklađenog manikira je cveće. Pošto sam nedavno koristila suvo cveće za usklađeni manikir, ovog puta sam se iznenađujuće odlučila za pečatiranje. :D

This week's Matching Manicures theme is flowers. Since I've recently used dry flowers for a Matching Manicure, I've surprisingly decided to do a stampicure this time. :D

Nove dobitnice

Dve dobitnice mi se nisu javile pa sam izvukla nove. Jasmina Stanković, Ruth Gistelinck, čestitam. I vi imate 48 časova da me kontaktirate kako bih mogla da vam pošaljem nagrade.

Two winners haven't contacted me so I've drawn new ones. Jasmina Stanković, Ruth Gistelinck, congratulations. You too have 48 hours to contact me so that I could send you your prizes.



MoYou Nails 301


Znate da nisam baš ženstvena devojka i zato sam isprva za predstavljanje ove tematske pločice iz MoYou Nails Concept kolekcije htela da uradim svega dva manikira. Tema pločice je prilično ženstvena, pomalo klinačka, što zaista nije moj fazon i plašila sam se da neću imati inspiraciju za više od par manikira. No sama me je pločica povukla i nadam se da će vam se svideti šta sam uradila.

MoYou Nails Image Plate 301
http://moyounails.com/shop/image-plate-301/

You know I am not a girly girl and that is why at first I had planned to do only two manis to showcase this MoYou Nails Concept Collection stamping plate. The theme of this image plate is very feminine, a bit childlike, which really isn't my thing and I was afraid I won't be inspired to do more than a couple of manicures. However, this plate turned out to be quite inspiring and I hope you'll like what I came up with.

Deborah Shine Tech 58


Još jedan lak koji mi je stigao od Male Palčice je ovaj Deborah lak boje starog zlata koji je bio deo letnje kolekcije za 2011. godinu. Deborah je brend koji se ne slaže dobro sa mojim noktima, to moram da napomenem pre nego što pređem na predstavljanje samog laka. Deborah lakove sa kojima drugi ljudi nemaju problema ja ne mogu da namažem lepo bez obzira na bazu koju koristim. Stoga ne uzimam više njihove lakove, bez obzira na nove kolekcije i divne boje koje dodaju u ponudu. Deborah Shine Tech lakovi imaju 8,5 ml i koštaju oko 620 dinara, a često se mogu naći i na sniženju do 50%.


Another polish I got from Mala Palčica is this antique gold-coloured Deborah, which was part of summer 2011. collection. Deborah is a brand that doesn't sit well with my nails, I have to say this before I start writing about the polish. I can't seem to apply nicely Deborah polishes that other people don't have any issues with, regardless of base coat I use. That is why I no longer buy these polishes and I have to ignore all the lovely collections and new shades they keep adding. Deborah Shine Tech polishes come in 8.5 ml bottles and retail for about 5 €.

Trind Caring Color CC195 Sea Green


Još uvek sam u zoni plavih lakova, ali ovog puta imam veseliju nijansu koja me asocira na topla mora iako nije iz letnje već iz jesenje/zimske kolekcije Trind lakova, iste kojoj pripadaju Emerald Swirl i Sunset Orange. Poput drugih Trind lakova ima 9 ml i košta oko 850 dinara. Spisak prodajnih mesta možete naći ovde Gde kupiti.


I am still in blue nail polish zone, but this time I have a cheery shad that reminds me of warm seas even though it isn't from some summer collection, but comes from a fall collection that gave us Emerald Swirl and Sunset Orange. Like other Trind polishes, it comes in 9 ml bottle and retails for about 8 €.

OPI I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw


Nakupili su mi se plavi lakovi, a jedan od onih koji mi najduže stoje neisprobani je OPI I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw. Verovatno bi mi još dugo stajao neisproban da mi nije bila potrebna svetlija teget podloga za poslednji usklađeni manikir. OPI lakovi imaju 15 ml i koštaju oko 1200 dinara. Neki lakovi iz ove kolekcije su ušli u stalnu postavku, ali ne i I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw pa ne znam da li se on još uvek može naći u prodaji.


I have quite a few blue untrieds and one that's been siting there for a very long time is OPI I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw. It would probably still be unworn had I not needed a lighter navy-blue polish for the latest Matching Manicure. Several polishes from this collection are now part of OPI's Classics range, but not I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw so I don't know if it still can be found.

Majski noviteti


Prođe maj, a u njemu je bilo neočekivanih noviteta. Neočekivani su zato što sam sa najvećim uživanjem skoro sav novac potrošila na putovanje, obilaske muzeja i knjige, ali uspela sam da nađem i nešto za nokte. Jedva sam uspela da nađem jedan od nekoliko Essie Cashmere Matte lakova koje sam želela i naravno da sam ga uzela. Pala je i mat verzija ANNY The Answer is Love, kao i nekoliko Misslyn lakova. Uzela sam i oba Essence pečatna laka jer beli mi je do sada bio veoma dobar, a ne sumnjam da i crni valja. Tokom priprema za nagradnu igru (koja traje još nekoliko dana) uzela sam i Zoya Vespa i još jednu bočicu Trind balzama za zanoktice. Poslednji novitet je cela kolekcija MoYou Nails Concept Collection pločica za pečatiranje.

We've left May behind us and it is now time to see what it has left behind. I have spent most of my money (with greatest joy) in May on a trip to Vienna, museum visits and books, but I managed to find something for nails as well. I have barely managed to find one of several Essie Cashmere Matte polishes from my wish list and I had to take it. I also got a matte version of ANNY The Answer is Love as well as several Misslyn polishes. While I was getting prizes for my blogaversary giveaway I also got myself Zoya Vespa and another bottle of Trind Cuticle Balsam. The last new arrival is the entire MoYou Nails Concept Collection.
