Classy Black & White Dot Manicure

7/31/2014



Hello lovelies - finally a manicure, finally I have enough nails to showcase some of my new nail polish purchases! This will be a sweet and short post as there isn't much to explain - this mani is easy as easy gets. I got the idea at the Fab Fatale blog - it's easy, it looks pretty amazing and doesn't require much expertise. Just what I usually go for. Before my nails got into nail rehab, they were a terrible mess but OPI Nail Envy sure is working hard and they finally look decent. I just couldn't wait anymore so I've whipped out my two new-ish purchases. China Glaze really won me over with their matte neons - they require lots of layering but they dry really fast so it kinda compensates. This time I wanted to get classic black and white nail polishes and I've finally found my perfect pair. The black polish is absolutely exquisite, the best black polish I've ever seen or tried in my life. It's the unbelievable China Glaze Liquid Leather. This mani probably doesn't do it justice but just wait come autumn when I'll prepare suitable manicures to welcome the season. All in all, one coat is all you need to achieve absolute, pitch dark opacity with Liquid Leather. Yes, really! I've used an Essence two-sided dotting pen to apply black dots onto my white canvas.

Pozdravljam vas drage moje, napokon je manikir na blogu - napokon su noktici porasli do mjere kada ih mogu uposliti kao manekene za najnovije lakice koje sam kupila! Ovaj post ce biti kratak i sladak posto se nema mnogo objasnjavati - ovaj manikir je izuzetno jednostavan. Ideju sam dobila sa Fab Fatale bloga - jednostavno mi izgleda odlicno uz relativno malo truda i ne zahtjeva neko posebno umijece sto znaci da cete i vi moci bez problema da rekreirate ovaj dizajn. To je upravo ono sto me inace zanima. Prije nego su mi nokti otisli u rehabilitaciju, bili su u zaista losem stanju no izgleda da OPI Nail Envy radi naporno na njihovom oporavku sto mi je drago te sada izgledaju pristojno. Naprosto nisam mogla vise da izdrzim, zeljela sam se pohvaliti relativno novim lakicima koje sam nedavno kupila. China Glaze lakove kupujem preko Lilocosmetics Kakanj Facebook stranice no vjerujem da bi ih mogli kontaktirati i preko China Glaze Bosna i Hercegovina Facebook stranice (dostavljaju sirom BiH i jako su ljubazni). CG lakovi su me osvojili mat neoncima - istina, zahtjevaju dosta slojeva ali oni se suse bukvalno u par sekundi (nije sala) tako da mi to kompenzira trud. Ovog puta sam zeljela klasicni crni i bijeli lak te sam napokon pronasla svoj savrseni dvojac. Crni lak je izuzetan, reci cu vam da je najopulentiniji, najbogatiji i najkvalitetniji crni lak za nokte koji sam u zivotu vidjela i isprobala. Rijec je o fascinantnom China Glaze Liquid Leather laku (7,50KM). Ovaj manikir mozda i ne prikazuje njegovo velicanstvo u punom sjaju no sacekajte da nam se jesen priblizi jer vidjeti cete kakve sam manikire pripremila u susret narednom godisnjem dobu. Sve ce vam reci o ovom ljepotanu cinjenica da vam je potreban samo jedan sloj za potpuno, gusto i pigmentirano prekrivanje - crno kao noc! Koristila sam Essence dvostrani stapic za tackanje i nail art te sam njime nanijela crne tackice na bijelo platno.



That crisp, porcelain-like (no pun intended) white base is China Glaze White on White. This shade garnered some wild compliments and remarks. I was really apprehensive about it and never knew what to expect. I think it's actually a really good white nail polish. It isn't opaque, it does require three coats so things look even (like in the pictures) but it's far from the streaky mess some stated. I actually started to like white nails because of this beaut and it certainly doesn't look chalky. After three coats of White on White and after I've dotted Liquid Leather around the tip line with the help of my Essence dotting tool, I've added just a subtle bling in the form of Revelique Nail Art Set (can be purchased in Austria and Bosnia and Herzegovina). I chose plain circles as the fit the dot theme perfectly. One coat of Seche Vite Top Coat and everything was done and dried in seconds. Very easy yet I find this mani to be extremely effective. I hope you like it and possibly recreate it. 

Cisto bijeli lak poput porcelana (kuzimo se?) je China Glaze White on White (7,50KM). Ovaj bijeli lak je prikupio najkontradiktornije komentare - netko ga uzdize u zvijezde dok ga pojedini jako kritikuju. Ja sam bila oprezna sa njim, nisam znala sta ocekivati. Sada stvarno moram reci kako je jako lijep i jako dobar bijeli lak. Nije u potpunosti gust i ne prekriva do savrsenstva (kao crni CG lak). Potrebna su tri sloja da bi bio skoro pa idealne prekrivnosti i izgleda (kao sto vidite na fotkama) ali je daleeeko, daleko od navoda da je grozno nezgodan za rad. Zbog njega su mi bijeli nokti ponovo prirasli srcu i sa njim ne izgledaju krec bijelo i ne asociraju na korektore. Nakon tri sloja White on White laka, spomenula sam da sam Essence stapicem za nokte (cca 4KM-4,5KM) nanijela Liquid Leather kao tackice blizu ivice nokta i za kraj sam se posluzila Revelique setom za nail art (6,85KM u cm trgovinama). Iz ovog seta sam odabrala klasicne, jednostavne okrugle kamencice za koje smatram da se lijepo uklapaju u tackastu tematiku. Sloj Seche Vite nadlaka (12KM kupljen takodjer preko Lilocosmetics Kakanj), zavrsio je i zastitio dizajn na noktima te je sve bilo suho za par sekundi. Jako jednostavan manikir za koji se nadam da ce vam se dopasti te mi javite ako napravite nesto slicno.
