Double crack :)

Danes imam za vas fotografije dveh Depend lakcev. Prvi od njiju je nežno lila barve s srebrnim šimrom, drugi pa je svetlo moder crackle lakec, ki ravno tako vsebuje srebrn šimer. Na žalost lakca nimata prijetnih imen, ampak samo številke: 222 in 5067. Po vrhu je hec tudi v tem, da so številke izredno slabo vidne, zato je možno, da sem katero od njiju prepisala narobe. Če katera to opazi, naj me prosim opozori in bom popravila. :)

Today I would like to show you photos of two Depend nail polishes. First one is delicate lilac colour with silver shimmer and second one is light blue crackle polish, which also contains silver shimmer. Unfortunately they do not have such pretty names, but only numbers: 222 and 5067. And to make it even more sad is the fact that numbers are almost invisible, so I might have read them wrong. If anyone notices I made a mistake, please tell me and I will correct it. :)




Preden pa sem manikuro odstranila, sem se odločila še za kratek test, ki sem ga poimenovala kar "Double crack". ;) Po vrhu sem namreč slojila še eno plast Essence Crack Me! Black laka in efekt mi je bil zelo všeč. Kako pa se zdi vam?

Before I removed this manicure I decided to do a little test and I called it "Double crack". ;) Over the nails I painted one coat of Essence Crack Me! Black crackle nail polish and I really loved the effect. Do you find this combination as mission acomplished? :)

Tony Moly Galaxy Collection

Danes vam bom predstavila Tony Moly Galaxy kolekcijo lakov. Gre za pet odtenkov z bleščicami v temnejši bazi, ki so popolnoma prekrivni v samo dveh slojih! Meni so izredno všeč, kljub temu, da tudi po treh plasteh nadlaka nohti še vedno niso popolnoma gladki. Sama sem takoj nanesla dve plasti nadlaka, naslednji dan pa še tretjo. Na mojih nohtih so ti lakci tudi opazno bolj obstojni, zdržali so tri ali štiri dni, preden so se začeli krušiti. Zelo impresivno, saj sem ponavadi zadovoljna že pri dveh dneh! :) Kot podlak sem uporabljala Orly Bonder, kot nadlak pa INM Out The Door.

Today I will show you the Tony Moly Galaxy nail polish collection. In it there are five glittery colors in darker bases and they are completely opaque in just two coats! I love them very much, even considering the fact that my nails were not totally smooth after three coats of top coat. I have put on two coats of top coat right after polishing my nails and the next day I did third coat. These polishes are very long-lasting on my nails - they did not start to chip before three or four days of wear. That's really impressive for me, because I'm happy already if polish stays on my nails for two days! :) I was using Orly Bonder as a base coat and INM Out The Door as a top coat.





Prvi izmed njih je GT01 oz. Merkur. V temno sivo jelly bazo so vmešane majhne kvadratne srebrne, rdeče in modre bleščice.

First of is GT01 aka Mercury. There is small square glitter in silver, red and blue color mixed in dark gray jelly base.






Naslednji je GT02 oz. Zemlja. V temno modri jelly bazi najdemo mini temno modre in srebrne bleščice ter malo večje šestkotne roza bleščice, ki pod različnimi koti spreminjajo barvo.

Next one is GT02 aka Earth. It has very tiny dark blue and silver glitter and a bit larger hexagonal pink glitter that shifts colors. The glitter is mixed in dark blue jelly base.






Naslednji lepotec ima oznako GT03 oz. Mars. Baza je pri tem laku temno rjave barve, vanjo pa so vmešane majhne temno rjave in oranžne ter večje zlate bleščice. Na sončku so opazne tudi mikroskopsko majhne modre bleščice, ki dajo laku še dodatno dimenzijo.

Next beauty is called GT03 aka Mars. This polish has dark brown base with smaller dark brown and orange glitter and bigger hexagonal golden glitter. In the sun I can also se microscopic blue glitter which gives another dimension to the polish.






Sledi GT04 oz. Neptun, kjer lahko v temno zeleni bazi vidimo majhne zlate, srebrne in zelene ter velike zelene šestkotne bleščice.

Next is GT04 aka Neptune. In dark green base we can see small golden, silver and green glitter and larger hexagonal green glitter.






Zadnji v tej kolekciji je GT05 oz. Jupiter. V temno vijolično jelly bazo so vmešane čisto majhne oranžne, malo večje vijolične in velike modrozelene šestkotne bleščice, ki spreminjajo barvo.

Last but not the least is GT05 aka Jupiter. In dark purple jelly base is mixed tiny orange, bigger purple and big hexagonal blue green glitter, which shifts color.






Ponavadi nikoli ne kupim celotnih kolekcij lakov za nohte, ta pa me je prepričala že dvakrat - najprej pred nakupom, potem pa še na nohtih. Moji najljubši v naključnem vrstnem redu so: Merkur, Zemlja, Mars, Neptun in Jupiter. No, v bistvu kar vsi! ;D Žal mi je samo, v kolekciji ni toliko lakov, kot je planetov, pogrešam še Venero, Saturn in Uran, pri tako čudovitih gliterčkih pa bi bila za planet pripravljena priznati tudi Pluton-a! =)) Zaupajte mi, kateri od njih pa je vaš najljubši?

I usually don't buy whole nail polish collections, but this one convinced me twice already - first before I bought it and second when I put each polish on my nails. My favorites in random order are: Mercury, Earth, Mars, Neptune and Jupiter. Jap, all of them actually! ;D Unfortunately this collection does not consist of so many polishes as there are planets, I miss Venus, Saturn and Uranus. But with such great glitters I would count Pluto as a planet too, daaah! =)) Tell me, what do you think about those polishes and which one is / are your favorite?

Spectraflair frankens!

Ekstremno prijazna Cathy z bloga More Nail Polish nama je omogočila, da sva v svojo zbirko dodali nekaj gramov pigmenta Spectraflair. Seveda sem takoj zavihala rokave! :)

Extremely nice Cathy from More Nail Polish blog made it happen for us - she helped us to add few grams of Spectraflair pigment to our collections. Of course I started to franken right away! :)

Zaenkrat sem ustvarila štiri zmešančke. Prvi je modre barve, ki pa je kar precej prosojen, zato sem ga slojila čez eno plast polnoprekrivnega modrega laka Jonca s foil finišem, ki žal nima niti imena niti številke.


I have created four frankens until now. First of them is blue, but it is very sheer, so I layered it over one coat of fully opaque blue foil finish Jonca nail polish, which sadly has no name or number.


Sestavine: Essence Colour & Go Absolute Pure (prozoren lak), 5 kapljic Jonca modrega foil finiš lakca, 3 kapljice China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic in Spectraflair pigment.

Ingredients: Essence Colour & Go Absolute Pure (clear polish), 5 drops of Jonca blue foil finish nail poish, 3 drops of China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic and Spectraflair pigment.


Pri naslednjem zmešančku sploh nisem komplicirala. V prozoren lakec Essence Colour & Go Absolute Pure sem dodajala SF pigment, dokler nisem bila zadovoljna z mavrico. Na fotografijah so štiri plasti brez podlaka in nadlaka.

I did not complicate with my next franken at all. I was adding SF pigment into clear polish Essence Colour & Go Absolute Pure until I was satisfied with the rainbow. There are four coats on the photos without base and top coats.






Seveda mi prekriven moder holografski zmešanček ni dal miru, zato sem ustvarila še tega. Na fotografijah sta dve plasti, čeprav bi bila dovolj samo ena, če bi bila bolj previdna pri nanašanju.

But I still wanted to have an opaque blue holographic nail polish, so I made that one too. There are two coats on the photos, but I could get away with just one if I was more careful with the application.


Sestavine: Joy - 389 (temnno moder lak z jelly finišem) in Spectraflair pigment.

Ingredients: Joy - 389 (dark blue nail polish with jelly finish) and Spectraflair pigment.



Trenutno zadnji izmed zmešančkov pa je nastal iz Essence Choose Me turkiznega laka z večjimi zlatimi bleščicami, ki sem mu dodala še nekaj SF pigmenta.

The last franken for now is made from Essence Choose Me torquoise nail polish with bigger golden glitter and some SF pigment as well.






Za konec pa naj vam pokažem še kombinacijo dveh lakcev, po vrhu prekrivnega modrega frenkija sem namreč nanesla še eno plast turkiznega frenkija. Ta manikura je trenutno moja najljubša, katera pa je najbolj všeč vam?

And for the end I would like to show you my favourite manicure - over an opaque blue franken I did one coat of the torquoise one. And which one do you like the most?





Tale Spectraflair pigment je res super, zdaj sploh ne čakam več na nove kolekcije in upam še na kakšnega luštnega holota. Če so nas proizvajalci lakov v tej smeri zadnja leta razočarali in puščali na cedilu, si lahko same pomagamo do novih prekrasnih mavričnih lepotcev! :P ;D Ali ste tudi ve že preiskusile ta pigment? Kakšne pa so vaše izkušnje?

This Spectraflair pigment is really really great! I don't even wait for any new collection of holographic nail polishes. Those nail polish companies have let us down for so many years and now we can make our own rainbow beauties! How cool is that?? :P ;D Did you try this pigment too? Please, share your experiences with me! :)
