Tangerine, Sequins and Leather

3/22/2015



I think I've been good as far as sticking to my Beauty Resolution #5 - nail polish is probably the biggest obsession I have next to blushes and I'm really glad I've opted to step it up at the blog as well. After a glorious few sunny days we've indulged in, I knew that this Sunday will become gloomy as the high clouds cover our skies. A gloomy Sunday is no fun day, right? I've tried my best to deliver some nice photos for you in attempt to brighten up the day with my latest manicure. I've been trying many different nail polishes lately, from Essence, Catrice, Avon, China Glaze etc. so my Essie darlings have been neglected which is something I simply cannot allow. Essie is a magical factory which does make my favorite nail polishes of all - I love their formula, quick drying time, rich colors and the expensive feel they have on the nails. They are also DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free. These two beauties you'll see I've purchased last year but never found the opportunity to reveal them to you before. I like how the pair 'softened' my black biker leather jacket and added some femininity to the entire look.

Neskromno cu reci kako mislim da sam prilicno dobra po pitanju toga da se pridrzavam Beauty Odluke #5 - lakovi za nokte su mi mozda i najveca opsesija pored rumenila i zaista mi je drago sto sam se odlucila da situacija na blogu u sto vecoj mjeri odrazava te moje male strasti. Nakon sto smo uzivali u par divnih, suncanih dana pogled na sinopticku kartu je jasno prenio poruku da ce nedelja biti prilicno dosadan dan zbog progresivnog sirenja visoke naoblake. Rijecima laika - nedelja ce biti dosadan, oblacan dan koji ce nas uskratiti plavetnila i vitamina D. To nikako nije zabavno, zar ne? Pokusati cu svojim veselim manikirom da barem malo uljepsam danasnji dan. U zadnje vrijeme se dosta igram sa lakovima razlicitih brendova, od Essence, Catrice, Avon, China Glaze itd. a samim time su moji Essie ljubimci pali u drugi plan sto je nepravda koju nikako ne mogu dopustiti. Essie je magicna tvornica u kojoj se stvaraju meni najdrazi lakovi za nokte od svih - osvojila me njihova kvalitetna brzosuseca formulacija, bogate nijanse i skupocjeni efekat koji pruzaju na noktima. Takodjer su sigurni za koristenje jer ne sadrze DBP, Toluen ni Formaldehide. Dva ljepotana koja cu vam sada predstaviti sam kupila prosle godine no do sada se nije pruzila idealna prilika da pokazem njihovu ljepotu svijetu. Dopada mi se kako su 'smeksali' crnu bajkersku kozu jaknu koju volim nositi i unijeli su dasak zenstvenosti cjelokupnom look-u.



Essie Sunday Funday ($8.50) is a peculiar nail polish which has won my heart in an instant. Essie describes it as a tangerine crush coral and I think they're right! It definitely has an orangey/coral base. Some say it has a pinky addition but on my nails it looks predominantly orange. However, this isn't you regular orange - during day it possesses a punchy exuberance, at night it looks straight-up muted orange while the camera picks up a neon-like quality. In addition to this unique shade, Sunday Funday contains a beautiful, soft shimmer which some of my other Essie faves share (Bikini So Teeny, Naughty Nautical etc.) and in my eyes it mimics the sparkle of the surface of sea. I've painted all my digits with Sunday Funday and it's beautiful on its own but I wanted to show off a stunning sparkly topper I reckon is the most beautiful sparkly specimen in my entire nail polish collection. Essie Summit Of Style ($8.50) is the perfect shimmery top coat for all of you who find pure yellow based golds a bit limiting. Indeed, Summit Of Style can be paired with absolutely any and every color (warm and/or cool undertones) and it imparts such a luxe effect. Bronze glitters look very special and I've noticed that this Essie top coat allows an easy ombre application whilst many other top coats I have leave either blobs of glitter on one place or the clear polish looks too thick when layered. No such problems with Summit Of Style! I cannot stop looking at my nails because I love them so much and I hope this bubbly manicure will brighten up your day.

Essie Sunday Funday (cca 18KM) je izuzetan i dosta specifican lak za nokte koji je iz prve osvojio moje srce. Essie ovu nijansu opisuje kao miks koraljne i boje mandarine - mislim da opis odgovara nijansi! Bez sumnje ovaj lak za bazu ima narandzastu boju. Neki kazu da sadrzi i ruzicaste primjese no na mojim noktima je narandzasti ton dominantan ali ne radi se o klasicnoj narandzastoj jer ovaj lak ima vise lica. Po danu je blistavo koraljna nijansa, navecer je smirene narandzaste nijanse dok vidim da je kamera 'pokupila' i sklonost ka neonskom odsjaju. Osim prilicno zanimljivog kolorita, Sunday Funday krasi i jako lijep, gotovo pa 'mekani' shimmer koji dijeli sa jos par mojih ljubimaca (Bikini So Teeny, Naughty Nautical itd.) a u mojim ocima ovaj shimmer imitira odsjaj sunceve svjetlosti na povrsini mora. Nalakirala sam sve noktice sa Sunday Funday ljepotanom socnim poput mandarine - i zaista je prekrasan sam po sebi ali ovaj put zelim da se pohvalim i sljokicastim nadlakom koji oduzima dah. Mislim da je upravo ovaj nadlak i najljepsi od svih koje posjedujem te svojim prisustvom uljepsava i moju licnu kolekciju lakica. Essie Summit Of Style (cca 18KM) je idealan sljokicavi nadlak koji je upravo ono sto vam je potrebno u zivotu ako smatrate klasicne zlatne sljokicavce zute baze ogranicavajucim. I zaista, Summit Of Style se moze kombinovati uz doslovno svaku boju, svakog podtona (toplog i/ili hladnog) dok pri tome 'podize' svaki bazni lak pruzajuci mu luksuzan efekat. Sljokice u nijansi bronze izgledaju posebno te sam primjetila da je formulacija Essie sljokicavih nadlakova superiorna u odnosu na ostale zbog toga sto omogucava suptilan ombre prelaz i kontrolu nad sljokicama dok vecina ostalih lakova ove vrste ostavlja vecinu sljokica na jednom mjestu a njihovo 'razvlacenje' rezultira debelim nanosima i prozirnim lakom koji odaje gdje koji sloj pocinje, a gdje zavrsava. Nemam takvih problema sa Essie ljepotanom! Ne mogu prestati gledati u noktice jer mi se jako dopadaju a nadam se da ce i vama ovaj manikir da 'legne' i mozda nekome uljepsa dan.
