China Glaze Sexy Silhouette

3/05/2015


Taking photos whilst it's cold outside is sometimes a dreary task - I always need to open my window and face the low temperatures, sometimes even the chilly wind so I can get some light on the object of my photo session. That's an obstacle I tackle by wearing either of my two thick wooly sweates. You may have noticed them so far - I have an aztec inspired black & white one and this creamy grey number. Scarves are optional but today's weather required one. Today I have a peculiar nail color choice when my tastes are taken into consideration but I really am enjoying it. You know that I always harp on how I detest the color pink (my Instagram #pinktag proves otherwise) but alas, I've amassed quite a rich pink nail polish collection. Today I've reached for a specific pink that brings out the sexiness. I've even tried to recreate its hue on my lips by mixing Sleek True Match in Cranberry, MAC Amplified Creme in Craving on the edges and Bourjois Rouge Velvet in Ole Flamingo in the center of my lips. Hopefully I've achieved a similar color because I'm in love with this China Glaze nail polish.

Fotografisanje dok vlada zima je ponekad prilicno nezgodan zadatak - kako bih uspjela objekat svoje mini foto sesije obasjati sa sto vise svjetlosti, potrebno je da otvorim prozor a samim tim se izlozim niskim temperaturama - cesto i prohladnom vjetru. To su sve prepreke koje pokusavam prevazici uz pomoc 'zimske fotografske opreme' kako se volim saliti u obliku dva debela vunena dzempera. Vjerovatno ste ih primjetili do sada - imam crno/bijelu varijantu sa azteckim detaljima i kremasto-sivi dzemper koji nosim ovom prilikom. Salovi nisu obavezni ali pomazu u potrazi za savrsenom fotkom, ne dopustajuci da hladnoca omete fotografa. Danas sam za vas pripremila jednu neobicnu nijansu laka - neobicnu ako ste do sada upoznale mene i kakav je moj ukus no bez obzira, jako mi se dopada. Znate kako stalno zanovijetam govoreci da nisam ljubitejica ruzicaste boje (#pinktag na mom Instagram profilu pak prica drugaciju pricu) ali opet, nekim neobicnim okolnostima sam sakupila prilicno impresivnu kolekciju ruzicastih lakova za nokte. Danasnja ruzicasta je privlacna na specifican nacin i cak sam pokusala da imitiram njen ton na usnama mijesajuci Sleek True Match ruz u nijansi Cranberry sa MAC Amplified Creme ruzem u nijansi Craving na ivicama dok sam nanijela malo Bourjois Rouge Velvet ruza u nijansi Ole Flamingo po sredini usana. Nadam se da sam na taj nacin koliko-toliko uspjela da imitiram nijansu ovog China Glaze ljepotana.


China Glaze Sexy Silhouette is a mid tone fuchsia which looks like a pretty dark berry in shade but it truly lights up when exposed to sunlight. Pinks aren't the type of color I'd usually wear during winter but this one leans more towards fuchsia than bubblegum pink and it has reds in as well. It has a pink micro shimmer (not glitter) which makes it appear slightly metallic in certain light. Two coats are more than enough to get great coverage but if your nail line is prominent, than maybe a third coat would be a good idea. Longevity is average with this one - I get three days of great wear until it starts to look scruffy. Although Sexy Silhouette doesn't strike me as a particularly unique shade (I'm sure there are plenty of dupes out there) it does attract attention. I've received quite a lot of compliments whenever I wore it and it does make hands appear very groomed and pretty. Such shades, however, I find to be limiting in the sense that I wouldn't wear them on very short nails or very long ones either. In fact, I think this type of shade looks best on nails a tad longer than mine. What do you think? Is this a color you'd personally wear and how does it appear to you? Sexy or not?

China Glaze Sexy Silhouette je srednje tamna fuksijasta nijansa koja u hladu djeluje kao tamna berry nijansa dok pod okriljem svjetlosti zaista zasija. Ruzicaste nijanse nisu moj tipican odabir za lakove za nokte tokom zimskih dana no ovaj lak vise izgleda fuksijasto nego sto podsjeca na plasticno baby ruzicastu boju (koje nisam pretjerani ljubitelj). Dopada mi se sto ovaj lak sadrzi i tracak crvenih podtonova i to je ono sto ga cini nosivim. Sadrzi i ruzicasti mikro shimmer (ne sljokice) koji doprinosi pomalo metalik efektu pod odredjenim okolnostima. Dva sloja su sasvim dovoljna za odlicnu prekrivnost (dva sloja nosim na fotografijama) ali ako vam je bijela linija nokta izrazajna, polusajte sa trecim jako tankim slojem koji bi je trebao neutralizirati. Trajnost je prosjecna posto ovaj lak na mojim noktima izdrzi tri dana bez ostecenja nakon cega pocinju da se tragovi nosenja primjecuju. Iako (barem meni) Sexy Silhouette kao nijansa ne djeluje narocito unikatno (ubijedjena sam da mozete pronaci solidan dupe bez mnogo muke), ipak uspijeva da privlaci paznju. Kada god bih je nosila, dobila bih mnogo komplimenata na njen racun sto ce reci da ipak posjeduje vlastiti sarm. Takodjer cini ruke i nokte lijepim i urednim. Ono sto je mozda specificno za nju ali i slicne nijanse lakova za nokte jeste da ne izgledaju najljepse na izrazito kratkim ali ni na izrazito dugim noktima. Licno smatram da ce ljepota ovog laka biti najprimjetnija na noktima koji su mozda malo duzi od mojih. Kakvo je vase misljenje o ovome? Da li bi vi nosile ovaj lak na svojim noktima - da li je seksi ili ne? Ako ste iz BiH, znate da svoje China Glaze lakove nabavljam preko Facebook stranice Lilocosmetics Kakanj po cijeni od 7,50KM.
