Could This Be My Favorite Red Polish?

1/17/2015


Hopefully we can still be friends after I write this but, I'm not the biggest fan of colors pink or red. I know - shocker. Pink has never been something I consider desirable, not even from a young age but I've eased into wearing pink make-up so that's progress, right? I also don a salmony/pink T-shirt from time to time and that's quite a step for me. As for red - we've been going through a love/hate relationship for at least ten last years. Sometimes I adore it and wear it all the time and sometimes it literally makes me feel ill just looking at it. I do own two pairs of linen summer trousers and a pretty red scarf in my defense and I truly love a good red lip. But nails? Pink I have embraced during 2014. but, another shocker alert - I think I own only two or three red nail polishes - I have owned dozens but almost all of them ended as gifts to friends. I rarely feel good with red nail polish on my nails but I think I've found the perfect red, even for the non-red lover! 

Nadam se da cemo ostati prijateljice nakon sto napisem slijedece ali, zaista nisam velika ljubiteljica ruzicaste niti crvene boje. Znam - sokantno. Ruzicaste nijanse me nisu dojmile jos otkada sam bila mala djevojcica no vremenom sam tu boju uvela barem na mala vrata u svoj zivot putem sminke - i to je napredak, zar ne? Takodjer tokom ljeta volim nositi losos/ruzicastu majicu koja sjajno ide uz broncani ten tako da i nisam bas toliko losa. Sto se tice crvene - barem posljednju deceniju imam kompleksan odnos sa njom. Nekada imam faze tokom kojih sam opsjednuta ovom bojom i konstantno je nosim a nekada mi samo pogled na crveni objekat izazove mucninu. Doduse, posjedujem dva para lanenih hlaca koje volim nositi ljeti i lijep zimski sal te u svoju odbranu moram reci i da je jedna od najljepsih stvari u mojim ocima odgovarajuci crveni ruz na usnama. Ali nokti? Tokom 2014. godine se ruzicasta ugnijezdila u mojoj lakoholicarskoj kolekciji no (jos jedno sokantno priznanje) - posjedujem samo dva ili eventualno tri crvena laka za nokte. Ruku na srce, imala sam ih skoro dvadeset ali ih je vecina poklonjena prijateljicama. Rijetko kada se osjecam lijepo kada nosim crveni lak no mislim da sam pronasla raritet koji je savrsen, cak i za osobe koje ne vole crvene lakove!


China Glaze Salsa is a fab polish from all angles - in fact, it's one of my favorite China Glaze nail polishes of all time! This juicy tomato red creme ticks all the boxes for me and I'm under the impression it's a shade made with 'the golden middle rule' in mind. It's not too bright, not too vampy, not too neon, not too plain, not too classic, not too modern - it's right in the middle! This is a fabulous hot red which has a touch of orange undertone but it can also look a tad berry under dim light. It has an almost gel-like consistency and an almost jelly finish - but not exactly as it seems to stop at the very end of shiny. It makes nails and hands look groomed without much effort as I usually apply only one coat but two add to the fullness of the shade. It also dries quite quickly for a creme polish, has an even application from the first coat but has a touch of sheerness - thus the second coat recommendation for best results. It's a wonderful chip-free, long-wearing shade which I fell in love with and I pair it with all my red lipsticks (regardless of the undertone) and it's flattering in combo with each. Such a versatile red is easy to love and I admit my defeat, my armour has been pierced, all troops called off - red is now officially a part of my life.

China Glaze Salsa je fantastican lak u svakom pogledu - ustvari, mislim da je jedan od meni najdrazih China Glaze lakova svih vremena! Ova socna paradajz-crvena nijansa creme finisa mi apsolutno odgovara te sam pod utiskom da je stvoren sa mislju o pravilu 'zlatne sredine'. Nije previse svijetao, nije previse vamp, nije neonac, nije previse obican, nije previse klasican, nije previse moderan - savrsen je! Ovu vrucu crvenu nijansu krasi i njezan narandzasti podton no pod odredjenim svjetlom cak djeluje kao da je u sferi bobicastog voca. Finis/efekat je skoro poput geliranih noktica te je na ivici jelly finisa - naglasak je na rijeci 'skoro' jer je sjajan na jedan decentan nacin. CG Salsa cini nokte i ruke urednim, lijepo sredjenim uz minimum truda i obicno nanosim samo jedan sloj no drugi je taj koji u potpunosti izrazava svu raskos crvenog spektra. Takodjer se susi jako brzo, (veliki plus za creme finis) i ravnomjerno se nanosi jos od prvog sloja. Ipak je na odredjeni nacin prozracan - bas zbog toga preporucujem nanosenje dva sloja za optimalne rezultate. Krasne je formulacije koja se ne krza po ivicama i traje danima bez nadlaka. Ovaj lak volim kombinovati sa svim crvenim ruzevima koje imam u licnoj kolekciji (bez obzira na podtona) i drago mi je prijaviti da se jako lijepo nadopunjuje sa svakim od njih. Ovako divan crveni lak nije tesko zavoljeti i priznajem poraz, moj stit je spusten, vojska opozvana - crvena je zvanicno dio mog zivota. BiH citateljice po svoju dozu savrsene crvene mogu otici kod Lilocosmetics Kakanj (za samo 7,50KM).
