Claire's Mood - Calm & Wild

Uf, tale lakec mi je pa zelo všeč! :)
Mislim, da je to eden izmed lakcev, ki ga ni potrebno posebej predstavljati. Če mi je dovolj toplo, je lakec roza barve, če pa me zebe v roke, je vijoličen. Pri meni tako kar pogosto menjuje barvo. ;)


Wow, I really like this nail polish! :)
I believe this is one of the nail polishes everyone knows about and needs no introduction. :) If I'm feeling ok it's color is pink, but if my hands are cold, it turns to purple. So in my case it is shifting between the two colors a lot. ;)

Swap package from Canada

Pred kratkim naju je razveselil ogromen swap paket, ki sva ga dobili iz Kanade! =))
Poslala nama ga je prijazna Skulda, ki piše blog Skulda's Claws. V paketku se je nahajalo ogromno lakcev in tudi sladkarij, vendar te žal niso uspele dočakati objave. *blush* So bile preveč dobre. ;))


A few days ago we were thrilled to see that we recieved a huge swap package from Canada! =))
It was sent to us from a very nice blogger Skulda from Skulda's Claws. Thank you sooo much, dear, for making us so happy! :)) In the package there were a lot of nail polishes and many candies, but unfortunately they didn't make it until this post. *blush* They were just too good! ;))

Catrice - From Dusk To Dawn

Catrice - From Dusk To Dawn je lepotec, ki potrebuje dve plasti za popolno prekrivnost, z nanosom pa ni prav nobenih težav, saj je lak ravno prav gost.

Catrice - From Dusk To Dawn is a nice polish that only needs two coats to achieve perfect opacity. I also had no problems with the application.

Viva La Nails and Eko franken :)

Pred časom sem tudi jaz dobila preizkusni paketek s spletne trgovine Viva La Nails, vendar je trajalo kar nekaj časa, preden sem preizkusila prve nalepke. Uporaba je zelo preprosta, končni izgled pa mi je zelo všeč.

A while ago I received a test package from Viva La Nails online store. But I didn't have much time to try it on right away, so I tried the first nail stickers now. They are very simple to use and I really like the final look.



Nalepke sem preizkusila preko tega zelenega holografskega lepotca, ki mi ga je za rojstni dan podarila Anček. Ko sem ga prvič nosila, mi je sodelavec rekel, da sem danes zelo "eko". Od tod zmešančku njegovo ime. :)

I tried the stickers out over the beautiful green holographic nail polish I got from Anček for my birthday. When I wore it for the first time, my co-worker said that I look very "eko" (eco) today. I liked that, so this is how this franky got it's name. :)

Milani - Hi-Res and comparison with China Glaze - Octa Gone Wild

Hi-Res je eden izmed holografskih lakcev znamke Milani. Gre za nežno vijoličen odtenek, v katerem se nahaja ogromno večjega holografskega šimra. Za prekrivnost potrebuje tri plasti, fotografiji pa sta nastali pod umetno osvetlitvijo in nato še na sončku.

Hi-Res is one of the Milani holographic nail polishes. This is light purple nail polish with lots of larger holographic shimmer in it. It needs three coats for full opacity. First photo was taken under artificial light and the next one in the sun.




Hi-Res me je tako zelo spominjal na odtenek China Glaze - Octa Gone Wild iz Kaleidoscope kolekcije, da sem ju enostavno morala primerjati med sabo. Vendar fotografja žal ne prikaže čisto realnega stanja, saj Octa Gone Wild ni temnejši niti bolj prekriven. Morda pa je v njem zaznati malenkost več holografskega šimra, sicer pa sta si laka izredno podobna. Če ste torej zamudile kaleidoskopčka, je Hi-Res odličen približek. :)

Hi-Res reminded me of China Glaze - Octa Gone Wild from Kaleidoscope collection so much, that I just had to do the comparison between them. But unfortunately the photo is not truly realistic, because in reality Octa Gone Wild is not darker nor more opaque than Hi-Res. But there is a bit more of shimmer in the Octa Gone Wild, but other than that they are very similar. So if you missed the Kaleidoskope one out, then Hi-Res is a really good replacement. :)


Hi-Res, Octa Gone Wild, Hi-Res, Octa Gone Wild.

Starry Starry Night franky

Essie - Starry Starry Night je eden izmed lakcev, ki mislim da ne bodo nikoli v moji zbirki, vendar glede na to da je moder in bleščičast sem ga seveda morala poskusiti poustvariti. Kako mi je uspelo pa presodite sami.

Starry Starry Night by Essie is one of those polishes that are just too hard to get. Anyway it is blue and glittery so I just had to try to franken it. What do you think about it, is it close enough?

Blue franky

Prijazna uporabnica foruma ARS Mojcaaa mi je par dni nazaj namešala prečudovitega zmešančka, za katerem pa žal ne vem sestavin, saj so tudi zame skrivnost.
Lakec potrebuje 2 plasti, vendar sem dodala tretjo, s katero izgleda še lepše.


A very nice user of ARS forum Mojcaaa made this gorgeous franken for me. It is shimmery blue with some silver glitter. I do not know which polishes she mixed together so the ingredients are a secret to me too. There are three coats of nail polish on the photos that are all taken in the sun.

Holo comparisons: GR8, L8R G8R and Hi-Tech

Danes imam za vas dve primerjavi.
Najprej sledita fotografiji dveh odtenkov znamke China Glaze iz OMG kolekcije - GR8 in L8R G8R. GR8 je zlate barve in je veliko bolj prekriven, na fotografijah sta dve plasti. Zanimivo je, da je to edini lakec iz te kolekcije, ki poleg holografskega šimra vsebuje tudi zlate bleščice, ki na nohtih sicer niso opazne, so pa zato pri odstranjevanju toliko bolj... L8R G8R pa je svetlo zelen in potrebuje vsaj tri plasti.
Meni sta oba odtenka presenetljivo veliko bolj všeč, kot pa sem pričakovala. :)

Today I have two comparisons for you.
First are the photos of two China Glaze nail polishes from the OMG collection - GR8 and L8R G8R. GR8 is gold and is a lot more opaque, there are only two coats on the photos. It is very interesting to me, that this is the only polish from this collection, which does not only have holographic shimmer in it, but also golden glitter. It is not noticeable on the nails, but the polish is as hard to remove as the other glitter polishes... L8R G8R is the pale green and needs at least three coats to be opaque.
I surprisingly like both of them a lot more than I have expected to. :)




V naslednji primerjavi pa sta se znašla lakca China Glaze L8R G8R in Milani Hi-Tech. V osnovni barvi sta si zelo podobna, velika razlika med njima pa je v holografskih delcih. Hi-Tech me spominja na kaleidoskočke iz China Glaze kolekcije zaradi močno razpršenega šimra. Nalakirala sem ga na kazalec in prstanec, na ostalih dveh prstih pa se nahaja L8R G8R.

My next comparison is between China Glaze L8R G8R and Milani Hi-Tech nail polishes. The base colour is pretty close on these two, but the holographic particles are very different. Hi-Tech reminds me on kaleidoscopes from China Glaze because of a lot more scattered shimmer. I have painted it on my index and ring finger and on the other two fingers there is L8R G8R.




Kateri vam je najbolj všeč? Če ste prave ljubiteljice holografskih odtenkov, tako kot jaz, potem pa nujno potrebujete vse tri. ;)

Which one do you like the best? But if you are true holographic freak as I am, you will need all three of them for sure. ;)

Essence - Colour & Go - 24 Underwater

Lakec, ki Vam ga bom predstavila danes, je nekoliko drugačen. Našla sem ga pri naših sosedih na Hrvaškem in ker mi je bil odtenek neznan, sem si lakec tudi kupila. Sledilo pa je presenečenje, saj pri nas pod to številko in imenom prodajajo popolnoma drugačen odtenek! Ker ga sama nimam, sem malo pobrskala po spletu. Zelo lepo ga je predstavila soblogerka Lacquerized: KLIK. Moj lak ima sicer enako številko in ime, to pa je tudi vse, kar imata skupnega. Gre za dusty temno moder odtenek z veliko sive, ki izgleda krem, vendar pa se v njem skriva zelo droben živo moder šimer nepravilnih oblik, ki da laku globino. Precej različna, ali ne? :)

The polish I will show you today is a little bit unusual. I found it at our neighbours in Croatia and because I have never seen this pretty colour before, I bought the polish. And then there was a surprise, because they do sell this polish in our country too, but it is totally different! Because I don't own it, I have searched the net and I found a great post and photo of it from Lacquerized: CLICK. Mine has the exact same number and name, but that's all those polishes have in common. It is dark dusty blue with a lot of gray in it. It looks creme, but there are some tiny irregular shaped vivid blue shimmer particles, which give the depth to the polish. Pretty different, huh? :)

Essence - Denim Wanted

Nova Essence omejena izdaja se imenuje Denim Wanted in na srečo mi je uspelo dobiti vse lakce razen rozastega, ki pa mi ni všeč.
Čisto vsi so zelo vredu pigmentirani in pri temnejšem modrem in črnem je dovolj že skoraj samo ena plast. Vseeno sem za vse slike nanesla dve plasti.


The newest Essence limited edition is called Denim Wanted and luckilly I managed to get all the polishes that I liked.
They are all very pigmented and dark blue and black only need one coat if you are careful, but I painted two coats of polish on my nails for the pictures just to be sure.
