Noviteti u avgustu


Avgust je bio iznenađujuće bogat novitetima iako mi nije bila namera da preterano uvećevam kolekciju. Ups. :D

I've gotten surprisingly many new items in August despite not intending to add so many polishes to my collection. Oops. :D

Matching Manicures - Inspired By Book


Ovonedeljna tema je malo zakučastija nego inače jer inspiraciju za manikire tražimo u knjigama. Ne nužno u omiljenim knjigama, ali ja sam odabrala da na nokte prenesem motive jednog od svojih omiljenih autora, što uopšte nije jednostavno jer je u pitanju Hauard Filips Lavkraft. Kako ilustrovati nešto što je predstavljeno kao neopisivo?

This week's theme is a bit tricky because we are looking for our inspiration in books. Not necessarily in our favourite books, but I did choose to depict motifs from one of my favourite author's body of work, which isn't easy at all because he is Howard Phillips Lovecraft. How do you show something that is presented as indescribable?

MoYou Nails 74


MoYou Nails pločica koju vam danas predstavljam ima pomalo starinske motive pa mi se fino uklopila u raspoloženje koje me drži od steampunk manikira.

Trind Nail Brightener


Lakovi za vizuelno izbeljivanje noktiju su kategorija proizvoda koja dobro zvuči u teoriji, ali u praksi sam pre za prave izbeljivače, a ne samo za optičku varku. No kao ovi proizvodi imaju svoje mesto u svetu manikira, mislim da je red da vam predstavim jedan od svega par takvih proizvoda dostupnih na našem tržištu - Trind Nail Brightener.

Optical nail whiteners are category of products that sound great in theory, but I am more for real whiteners, not just optical illusions. But since these products have their place in manicure world, I believe it is time to show you one of only few such polishes available in Serbia - Trind Nail Brightener

Dance Legend Comet Tail


Kada sam birala rođendanske lakove na Hypnotic Polish uspela sam da ulovim tri Dance Legend Galaxy laka koja sam želela i jedan iz ograničene serije, no nikako da dođu na red za nošenje i isprobavanje. Nedavno me je Maria podsetila da ih još uvek nisam nosila pa sada polako ispravljam taj propust. Na Hypnotic Polish Dance Legend Galaxy lakovi od 6,5 ml koštaju 8,7 €.


When I was choosing my birthfay polishes on Hypnotic Polish I managed to snag three Dance Legend Galaxy polishes, along with one limited edition, but it never seemed a good time to wear them. I was recently reminded by Maria that I should address this issue and now I'm starting to do it. Dance Legend Galaxy polishes retail for € 8.5 for 6.5 ml bottle at Hypnotic Polish.

OPI Lady in Black / Black Onyx


Koliko crnih lakova je potrebno jednoj devojci? Mojoj malenkosti su izgleda potrebni svi. :D Njih najviše trošim i najviše kupujem, mada se uglavnom držim jeftinijih brendova jer nije teško naći dobar crni lak u nižem cenovnom rangu. Ovaj se našao u OPI korpici na sniženju jer mu je falila etiketa na dnu bočice i to je bila prilika koju vredi iskoristiti.


How many black polishes does a girl need? Yours truly seems to need all of them. :D I buy and use them the most, but I mostly use lower-priced brands because it isn't that hard to find a good black polish among drugstore and cheaper brands. This one was in OPI discount bin because it was missing the label at the bottom and that was a chance that I couldn't give a pass.

Matching Manicures - Steampunk


Današnja tema usklađenog manikira, steampunk, predstavlja poseban i relativno nov žanr u umetnosti, pre svega pisanoj, a poslednjih godina posebno u vizuelnim umetnostima. Ako želite da čujete nešto više o ovom pravcu, na kraju članka možete naći snimak "Just Put Some Gears On It And Call It Steampunk" tribine sa ovogodišnjeg ChibiCon-a.

This week's matching manicures theme, steampunk, is a special and relatively new art genre, firstly in literature, but in the latest years it is most prominent in visual arts.

Born Pretty Squishy Stamper Heads


U predstavljanju Ya Qin An velikog pečata mogli ste da vidite i jedan od novih silikonskih jastučića za pečate koje Born Pretty Store od nedavno ima u ponudi. Ovih dana je stigla i moja narudžbina sa još dve takve dopune za pečate pa mi je zadovoljstvo da vam ih sada zajedno predstavim.

When I did the Ya Qin An large stamper review I have shown you one of new silicone stamper heads Born Pretty Store has recently offered. My order with two more such refill heads has arrived several days ago so it is my pleasure to do a group review.

Aura Bloody Mary


Pre dosta vremena sam na preporuku Just Pretty Nails uzela Aura Bloody Mary, nadajući se da će to biti moj nov savršen bordo lak (moj zaista omiljen bordo lak, Flormar True Color 013, više se ne proizvodi). U nastavku teksta možete pročitati da li je ovaj lak uspeo da mi zameni voljeni Flormar. Aura lakovi se mogu nabaviti u pojedinim Lilly i DM drogerijama, kao i po manjim parfimerijama.


Some time ago Just Pretty Nails suggested me Aura Bloody Mary, and I had bought it hoping that it'll be my new perfect maroon polish (my true favourite one, Flormar True Color 013, has been discontinued). You can read if it lived up to my expectations after page break.

OPI Stranger Tides


Nije nikakva tajna da se meni sviđaju prašnjave zombične nijanse zelene, tako me je privukao i OPI Stranger Tides. No kako nisam bila sigurna da li bi mi stajao uzela sam mini bočicu, koju sam uspela da nađem kao raspar u Prima apoteci kod Pravnog. Veće pakovanje je teško naći i vredi potražiti ga u OPI korpici na sajmovima kozmetike.


It is no secret that I like dusty zombie-y shades of green, which is why I was drawn to OPI Stranger Tides. I was unsure if it will suit me so I bought only a mini bottle. Full size bottle can probably be found on Ebay and similar websites.

Born Pretty BP-L025


Pre par nedelja sam na dragoj Di, poznatom mačkoljubu, testirala ovu pločicu punu mačjih motiva. Potom sam je isprobala i na sebi i sada je vreme da vam je predstavim.

https://www.bornprettystore.com/animal-theme-nail-stamp-template-image-plate-born-pretty-l025-65cm-p-20795.html

Several weeks ago I have tested this stamping plate filled with cat motifs on my dear Di, well known ailurophile. Then I've tried it on myself and now it is time to finally show it to you as well.

MoYou Nails 62

Essence Love Potion preko Catrice Bruno Brownani

Za danas sam spremila kratko i slatko predstavljanje MoYou Nails pločice pod brojem 62. Ovo je jedna od pločica sa sitnim motivima, u ovom slučaju sa sedam manje ili više stilizovanih i veoma nosivih cvetnih vinjeta. Za ova dva manikira sam upotrebila po dve slike i kao što moete videti, sve se divno prenose. Ova pločica je trenutno na sniženju i možete je nabaviti za svega £1.99

Chna Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald preko Deborah Sun Power

For today's post I have prepared a short yet sweet MoYou Nails review. Stamping plate number 62 is one of those plates with small images, in this case seven more or less stylized and very wearable floral vignettes. I have used two of these for each manicure and as you can see they all transfer wonderfully. This stamping plate is currently on sales and you can get it for just £1.99.

Matching Manicures - leptiri


Retko ovde delim crtice iz privatnog života i to činim samo kada one imaju veze sa manikirom koji predstavljam. Prošle nedelje je moj privatni život pretrpeo snažan udarac - prerano i krajnje iznenadno sam izgubila veoma dragu osobu. Imam gotove članke koje sam zakazala da se objavljuju kako bih održala neki stepen normalnosti u svakodnevici, ali mazanje noktiju mi je poslednja stvar na umu i to će biti slučaj sigurno još neko vreme. Danas se osećam tek toliko bolje da odgovorim na temu usklađenog manikira, ali to činim samo zato što su tema leptiri, a moja M. je uvek bila poput leptira - nežna, prelepa i stalno u pokretu.

I rarely share things from my private life here and I do it only if they are in some way connected to the mani I am showing you. Last week I suffered a terrible blow - I've lost a very dear person, unexpectedly and far too soon. I have some posts scheduled to keep some level of normality in my daily life, but painting my nails is the last thing on my mind and it will certainly stay that way for some time. I do feel well enough to do this weeks' matching manicure, but I'm only doing it because the theme is butterflies and my M. was like a butterfly - delicate, beautiful and always on the move.

Avon Nailwear Pro Gunmetal


Moje iskustvo sa Avon kozmetikom se pretežno svodi na gelove za tuširanje i silikonske kapi za kosu. Na blogovima u poslednjih par godina dosta čitam o Avon lakovima, ali zbog prethodnog lošeg iskustva sa Avon tretmanom/bazom za nokte nikako nisam mogla da se nateram da neki zapravo i kupim. Nedavno sam bila u prilici da u razmeni uzmem jedan te sam tu šansu iskoristila i mogu reći da sam veoma prijatno iznenađena. Nažalost, koliko mogu da vidim, ova linija se više ne proizvodi već je zamenjena Nailwear Pro+ linijom, u kojoj lakovi imaju 10 umesto 12 ml, a ova boja nepostoji u kolekciji.


My experience with Avon cosmetics boils down to shower gels and silicone drops. In the past two years I have been reading a lot about Avon polishes on blogs, but since I've had a bad experience with one of their nail treatments / base coats I was reluctant to buy any. However, I've had an opportunity to get one in a swap so I took that chance and I am rather pleased with how it performed. Unfortunately, as far as I can see, this line has been discontinued and replaced with Nailwear Pro+ line and there is no Gunmetal shade in that lane and polishes have 10 instead of 12 ml.

OPI Hot & Spicy


Proletos su me na sajmu iz OPI korpice dozivali narandžasti lakovi, a ja sam poklekla pred jednim od njih i ponela ga kući. Ime mu je Hot & Spicy i kada sam ga videla na prirodnom svetlu malo sam se razočarala u svoj izbor. Umesto prigušene narandžaste kreme (kako mi je pod osvetljenjem u hali izgledao), dobila sam naranžasti koralac. Zbog toga sam i čekala ovoliko dugo da ga uopšte probam. Kako se pokazao možete pročitati u nastavku teksta.


This spring at cosmetics expo there were several orange OPIs waving at me from the discount bin and I gave in and brought one of them home with me. He's name is Hot & Spicy and after seeing it in natural light I was a little disappointed with my choice. Instead of muted orange creme, as it looked to me under artificial light, what I ended up with is an orange-leaning coral creme. That is why I had waited this long to try it. You can learn how it performed after page break.

MoYou Nails 226


Iako poslednjih meseci nokte održavam prilično kratkima, s vremena na vreme ih pustim da porastu dovoljno da mogu da uradim neki nail art ili pečatiranje koje zahteva malo duže nokte. Francuski manikir spada u te slučajeve, a pečatirani frenč je maltene jedini frenč koji nosim.

Even though I've been keeping my nails quite short these past several months, from time to time I do let them grow enough for me to do some nail art or stamping that requires longer nails. French manicure is among those cases and stamped French tips are about the only ones I do sometimes wear.

Hibridni lakovi



U člancima o CND Vinylux Pretty Poison i Wild Moss sam Vinylux predstavila kao hibridni lak i pošto se ponuda ovog tipa lakova na našem tržištu povećala volela bih da vas upoznam sa njom.

Pre svega, šta su hibridni lakovi? Zvanično se nalaze negde između klasičnog laka za nokte i gel laka (koji je hibrid gela i laka). Ne zahtevaju sušenje u lampi niti skidanje pomoću natapanja kao gel lak, ali bi trebalo da traju duže od klasičnog laka za nokte. Obećavaju trajnost i sjaj od sedam do deset dana, a tajna je u nadlaku koji sadrži fotoinicijatore koji reaguju na talasne dužine dnevnog UV zračenja kako bi proces polimerizacije mogao da počne. Kod nas su od ove vrste proizvoda dostupni CND Vinylux, OPI Infinite Shine, Jessica Phēnom i China Glaze Everglaze. Od nedavno su u parfimerijama i drogerijama dostupni i Rimmel Super Gel i GOlden Rose prodigy hibridni sistemi, a i Essie je ponudio Gel COuture liniju, mada za nju ne znam hoće li uopšte biti uvezena. Iako i Essence The Gel linija deluje kao da pripada ovoj grupi proizvoda, taj nadlak ne sadrži fotoinicijatore i samim tim ne spada među hibride već među obične brzosušeće nadlakove.

CND Vinylux Wild Moss


Posle ne baš sjajnog prvog iskustva sa Vinylux lakovima odugovlačila sam sa isprobavanjem druge boju koju sam kupila, dvoumila se da li da prvo probam nju ili da ponovo nosim Pretty Poison, ali sam ipak odlučila da probam novu boju. Ovaj sistem, kao i druge CND proizvode, možete nabaviti u Unitech-u ili preko njihovog sajta. Cena lakova je 988 dinara, a nadlaka 679 dinara. I lakovi i nadlak sadrže 15 ml proizvoda i 3-free su.


After not so great first go at Vinylux polishes I have been postponing wearing the second shade I have bought, debating whether to try that one or to give Pretty Poison another go, but in the end I have decided to try a new colour. Vinylux polishes and top coat come in 15 ml bottles and they are 3-free.

OPI My Gondola or Yours?


Iako je leto u punom jeku, jesenja kolekcija OPI lakova već je u prodaji, a crni lak u mom posedu. :D Venice kolekciju sam za sada videla samo u Primax apotekama, u kojima je OPI svakog 15. u mesecu na sniženju od 15%. Redovna cena lakova je 1200 dinara, a mini set Little Bambinos košta 1560 dinara. U mini setu su četiri laka, u samoj kolekciji ih je petnaest, od kojih su tri iz ograničene serije.


Even though the summer is in full swing, OPI autumn collection is already available and the black polish in my possession. :D Venice collection consists of fifteen shades (three limited edition colours) and Little Bambinos set of four mini bottles.

Matching Manicures - Caviar


Danas na noktima nosimo perlice. Iskreno, isprva nisam želela da radim ovaj manikir, ali jutros sam videla da je Destany oglasila novu nagradju igru povodom širenja svesti o postojanju ropstva i time me inspirisala da spojim dve teme. O ropstvu i trgovini ljudima u Srbiji sam pisala prošle godine, a mislim da se situacija nažalost nije popravila od tada te da nije zgoreg podsetiti se kako možete prepoznati žrtve trgovine ljudima i kako se možete same zaštititi da ne upadnete u mrežu trgovine ljudima. Članak možete pročitati ovde.

Today we are wearing beaded manis. T be honest, I had planned to give this mani a miss, but this morning Destany announced another giveaway with the intention to raise awareness about slavery in 21st century and inspired me to combine the two themes. I have written an article about slavery and human trafficking in Serbia before and I think that the situation is sadly unchanged so some more awareness-raising wouldn't be so bad.

Julski noviteti


Možda mi nećete verovati ako kažem da do sredine meseca nisam ništa kupila, ali istina je da su tek od 15. jula počeli da mi pristižu noviteti. Prvo mi je stigla jedna od tri narudžbine sa BPS pa za njom paketić sa istog sajta sa stvarima za recenziju. Naručila sam jednu od starijih velikih pločica za pečatiranje (BP-L004) i "šrafove" za punđu, a za testiranje su mi stigle dve nove pločice (BP-L024 i BP-L025), ogroman dvostrani pečat o kome ste mogli da saznate više ovde i veliko jastuče za pečat. U međuvremenu sam naručila i manje takvo jastuče i četvrtastu verziju, kako bih stare gumene pečate učinila upotrebljivim. Početkom meseca me je obradovalo obaveštenje da sam posle više od godinu dana redovnog učestvovanja u Lynnderella nagradnim igrama upravo ja izvučena kao dobitnik. Dve nedelje kasnije mi je stigao paketić sa nagradom - lakovima Jammy Is My Jam i Ruby Passion (njega ste videli i u prethodnom usklađenom manikiru). Potom sam preko sajta Moje krpice uspela da nađem OPI The "It" Color i jedan zeleni Catrice, a u razmeni sam uzela svoj prvi Avon lak. Videćemo da li ću se zadržati samo na njemu. :)



Perhaps you wont believe if I tell you that I haven't bought anything until mid-July, but it is true that my new products have only started to arrive on the 15th. First there was an order from BPS, followed by another BPS package, this time with items for review. I have ordered one of older larger stamping plates (BP-L004) and bun pins and for reviews I've picked two large stamping plates (BP-L024 i BP-L025), large dual sided stamper that you can read more about here and one large stamping pad. I have ordered a smaller and rectangular versions of that pad so that I could swap my old hard rubber stamping pads and make those stampers usable. At the beginning of the month I was delighted to learn that I was drawn as a winner of Lynnderella weekly giveaway. Two weeks later an envelope with Jammy Is My Jam and Ruby Passion (you could see the latter one in glitter sandwich mani) finally reached me. In the end, I managed to snag OPI The "It" Color, a green LE Catrice and my first Avon polish. We'll see if it will remain my only Avon polish. :)
