Licila.si review

Get ready for some swatches and Slovenian language today :)
The lovely owner of the page licila.si send me a package of polishes for review and I am in love with all 3. So get ready for some pretty pictures and excited girlie screams :)

Ker sem produkte dobila od slovenske strani sem se odločila, da bom pisala ta pregled izdelkov tudi v Slovenščini. 
Prijazna lastnica strani licila.si mi je poslala paketek lakov za nohte za pregled in sem se zaljubila v vse 3. Tako, da pripravite se na lepe slikce in dekliške krike veselja :)


The 1st is my favorite of the day Barry M Gelly Passion fruit. Until now I was not very interested in them now I know I need the entire line. The color is a deep red coral - with zero shimmer and high gloss. For this pictures I added only one coat and it was completly opaqe. Also I tired it out and it's perfect for stamping even over black base.

Prvi lak je Barry M Gelly Passion fruit, ki mi je najljubši od vseh treh. Do sedaj me niso preveč zanimali, sedaj vem, da potrebujem celotno kolekcijo. Barva je temno rdeča koralna - ne vsebuje nič šimra in ima zelo velik lesk. Za to sliko sem uporabila le eno plast laka in je popolnoma prekriven. Poizkusila sem ga tudi za štempljanje in je popoln tudi za črno bazo.



The next one is BeautyUK Grit FX Printworks. This is a textured polish and has a texture like no other polish I own so far. It was opaqe in one layer but I added one more to make it even more textured. When it comes to the sand particles they are similar to the China glaze textured polishes but it has a shine finish and no glitters. The color is one of those hard to capture antracid - teal color. So pretty :)

Naslednji je BeautyUK Grit FX Printworks. To je teksturiran lak in ustvari taksturo, kot noben drugi te vrste, ki ga imam. Bil je prekriven v eni plasti ampak sem dodala še eno plast zato, da se je utvaril še večji občutek teksturiranosti. Kar se tiče občutka peska v laku je ta podoben China glaze teksturiranem laku, ampak ima zelo bleščeč finiš in ne vsebuje bleščic. Barva je ena od tistih, ki jih je težko opisati: antracidno - turkizna. Zelo lepa :)



And the last one is a magnetic one by Mia secret named Gold stripes. I haven't worked with a magnetic polish for a while but this brand makes it easy. I applied one coat of the polish and then finger by finger I used the cap of the polish with the magnet and made the stripes. The color is more of a bronze metallic with golden stripes after using the magnet. I also tried this one as a stamping polish over black base. And it works :)

Zadnji lak je magnetičen od Mia secret imenovan Gold stripes. Že nekaj časa nisem uporabljala magnetičnega laka ampak ta znamka naredi ta postopek preprost. Nanesla sem eno plast laka in noht za nothom sem uporabljala zamašek z magnetom da sem ustvarila linije. Barva je bolj bronasta na kateri se ustvarijo zlate črte, ko se zraven uporablja magnet. Poiskusila sem ga tudi, kot lak za štempiljke preko črne baze. Deluje! :)



So this was a great review of some realy great products - now my wishlist has became even longer :) Don't forget to visit licila.si if you live in Slovenija :)

Torej to je bil super pregled nekaj res odličnih produktov - sedaj je moj 'wishlist' postal še daljši :) Ne pozabite obiskati licila.si, če živite v Sloveniji :)

Sunday stamping: Favorite color combination

In real life I usually wear all black and there is no color on me - only may nails. And I love almost all colors on my nails so I did rainbow nails because I have no particular color combination that I prefer. Also I am a big g33k and some of my fondest memories with my BF were playing angry birds. So here they are some cute Angry bird nails.

I wanted to make the base colors the same color as the birdies in the game :) I am in love with this mani :)



For the bases I used Catrice Earnie & birdy (yellow), Back to black (gunmetal), Essence We rock the green, Ingrid Ice cube no. 354 (red). The stamps are made with Essence stamp me!black and QA17.


Today go play angry birds and try not to get angry :)

NCC: Day 3 and Mint mani for Talia

So by now everyone has heard about the magical Talias passing. R.I.P. dear girl ...
She truly is inspiring - to keep on in adversity and look damn good while doing it. My current personal life is in the crapper - my BF and friends are the only bright points right now. But this young girl relay gives me hope to 'get up and buck up' not to give in my daily blues :) So thank you :)

As a blogger I decided to take part of the mint manis challenge to give tribute to the inspiring angel :)




For the look I used China glaze for Audrey and Below deck. Over it I added the coat of OPI Polka.com and stamps made with Essence stamp me!white and Essence stamps :)

Today go out and do something fun you have been putting off :)

NOTD: Bye bye Ana

My dear friend Ana is off to Germany for 3 weeks - damn I will miss that girl :) But before she went I did her nails. She is a big fan of fancy cars - but the only German car stamp I had was the Volkswagen. So I did her nails with Orly Star of Bombay as base and stamps/dots with MJ XIV plates and Barry M silver foil.

I hope you like it :)





Do you ever do nails for your friends?

TTPNC: Day #1 Blue, Blue and Green

OK tri-polish challenge time again :) And this month I did them all according to the same theme and with the same stamping plate. So my extra theme is according to summer time - DRINKS! So get ready for a month  of refreshing drink nails :)

So my choices for this month are all neon *Not the bright traditional neon*:
Green - Catrice I'm not a greenager
Blue - Ulta3 Blue Marlin
Blue - Ruby kisses Blues clues
Stamping plate - MJ XIV

And today's nails are Absolute vodka inspired, since vodka is in a lot of summer cocktails it fits perfectly in this drinks theme :) Yummy :)

Zyra the rise of Thorns in 3 for 1 nail challenge special

So I am more and more running out of time to do epic nail art and somehow I am getting wrapped up in more and more nail art challenges. So this look today is Sunday stamping challenge with the theme shadow stamping *which I gave my best shoot at but failed*. Nail challenge collaborative look for the flower themed month since Zyra is a flower. And well Zyra is a League of legends champion and falls in my self appointed nail challenge *to make nails for all the champions in the game* :)

So Zyra in the game is not only hot but an epic reincarnation of Poison ivy from Batman. She is all thorns and poison flowers. Not only that, she has a magical melodic voice that makes her relay fun to play. Her abilities allow her to grow blossom flowers and with extra work they transform into different flowers that deal damage. So this is what I did in this look - also I was so inspired by The nailasaurus new waterfall technique I had to try it. So thorns, evil red grass and flowers fit perfectly for all 3 challenges :)

Hope you like it :)

Zyra the rise of Thorns

 For this look I used Carice Rockby, Planet Tokyo, Petrolpolitan. Essence Upper green side and Pink punk. S-he stylezon no. 314 and 30, Zoya Chyna, China glaze When stars collide and Kleancolor Neon Fuschia. And stamping plates HD02 and BM11.



Don't take my word for it that she's hot - here is some proof :) *Gotta love official game art that is  targeted to adolescent male players* :)
My favorite Zyra quote:

''Venture off the the beaten path''
