Blue Twinkle Nails

I just love the color blue – I simply love everything about it! It’s not a coincidence that my favorite piece of clothing are jeans but blue isn’t the easiest to incorporate in your beauty routine. I had this entire blue eyeshadow look phase (a nod to the ’80s) but lately the only way I’m wearing blue on my face is a smudged out navy blue pencil along my upper lash line. That’s it. Nails, on the other hand, are the perfect canvas and the ideal alternative for all those who wish to wear more blue – but in a more subtle way. This blue stunner I cannot stop wearing is a part of the China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection from the 2013. (not new but still a great polish collection that includes beautiful shades, such as this one). There are 9 gift sets and a bucket in the China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection including the Oh, Joy! Set (which I’ve showed off over at Instagram). I’ve recently had to cut my nails shorter as I’m simply not used to the length and I kept on scratching myself everywhere – face, arms, back – not a part of me was spared. I was pleasantly surprised how well this blue beaute wears on shorter nails. Ladies, let me introduce you to the China Glaze So Blue Without You.


Toliko sam puta spominjala da najvise volim plavu boju da se bojim kako sam vam postala dosadna – ali zaista je jako volim! Nije slucajnost da su mi omiljeni komad odjece farmerice no uklopiti plavu boju u make-up nije tako lagan zadatak. Prosla sam kroz jednu fazu tokom koje sam nosila plavu sjenu na ocima (obecavam da nije lose izgledalo) sto se cini kao hommage trendovima iz 80-tih godina no danas cete vidjeti plavu boju na mom licu iskljucivo u vidu tamno plave linije uz rub trepavica. To je u biti to. Nokti su pak savrseno platno i idealna prilika ali i alternativa koja pruza svim ljubiteljicama plave boje da je uistinu nose cesce – a da sve ostane dosta suptilno i nosivo. Ovaj plavi ljepotan je dio China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze kolekcije koja datira iz 2013. godine (nije posljednji ‘model’ ali je i dalje jako lijep kao sto je i ta kolekcija jos uvijek atraktivna). China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze praznicnu kolekciju lakova za nokte je sacinjavalo 9 poklon setova a medju njima je i Oh, Joy! Set kojeg ja imam (i kojim sam se pohvalila na Instagramu). Nedavno sam morala skratiti nokte – bilo mi je zao ali naprosto nisam navikla na vecu duzinu i sva sam se grebala – lice, ruke, ledja – niti jedan dio mene nije bio postedjen. Prijatno sam se iznenadila da ovaj plavac stvarno lijepo izgleda i na kracim noktima (bod za njega!). Dame, dopustite da vam predstavim zvijezdu recenzije – China Glaze So Blue Without You.

So Blue Without You is a vivid medium blue yet punchy and saturated color of an aluminum-like mirror finish. This is such a pretty polish – unlike anything I have in my collection. I love how electric this colour is but the finish is what truly makes this nail polish stand out. Its metallic finish has almost a foil-like look to it that reflects the light brilliantly and because it’s so dramatic all on its own – I really don’t feel the need to top it off with any kind of top coat (shiny or sparkly). Adding a clear top coat (such as the Seche Vite one) won’t alter its shiny/metallic finish, though. Formula is fabulous and I need only one coat but it’s a thing of habit to opt for two so that’s what you’re seeing here. It applies onto the nail smoothly and without any major issues. It really makes nails pop and it’s a true attention-grabber! The only issue I had with this shade is the same issue I have with most blue nail polishes – the attack of the so called Smurf Fingers. It doesn’t make my nails yellow but it leaves a slight bluish tinge on the nail plate and cuticles. Thankfully, these blue stains can be removed relatively easily – you just need a few splashes of water and soap and it all comes off. Since removal is more time-consuming than a typical polish, I wouldn’t recommend taking this off if you are in a rush and need to be out the door soon. Other than that, it’s a sublime blue stunner!

So Blue Without You je dosta atraktivna, srednje tamna plava nijansa koja je ujedno i dosta upadna i zasicena. Posjeduje staklasti finish koji dosta podsjeca na izgled aluminijske folije. Mislim da je stvarno prekrasan – uopste nije slican bilo kojem drugom laku za nokte iz moje licne kolekcije. Svidja mi se kako je ‘elektrican’ ali taj jedinstveni finish je pravi razlog zbog kojeg sam se zaljubila u ovu divotu. Taj metalik odsjaj slici foliji a svjetlost na divan nacin pada na njega i rasipa se. Posto je sam po sebi dramatican, zaista nisam imala zelju niti potrebu da preko njena nanosim nadlak (prozirni poput Seche Vite niti sljokicasti). No znajte da, ukoliko preko ovog laka ipak nanesete sloj nadlaka, necete mu poremetiti izvorni izgled, sjaj ni efekat. Formulacija je izvrsna i potreban je samo jedan sloj no zbog navike sam nanijela dva sloja sto mozete vidjeti i na fotografijama. Nanosi se glatko i bez vecih zamjerki. Uistinu privlaci paznju na noktima i drago mi je sto se ljudima dopada. Jedina zamjerka koju bih imala je ista zamjerka koju imam na vecinu (ako ne sve) plave lakove za nokte. Radi se o ‘napadu Strumfasticnih noktica’ tj. plavicastim tragovima na noktima i kozi oko noktiju. Srecom ovaj lak ne cini nokte zutima no ostavlja blago plavicasti trag – sreca je ta sto se uz malo vode i sapuna taj plavi trag u potpunosti skida sa koze i noktica. Posto je uklanjanje ovog laka ipak malo zahtjevnije, preporucila bih da mu se posvetite i nije bas najpametnije skidati ga dok ste u zurbi ili pred izlazak a da nemate namjeru proci cjelokupnu proceduru skidanja. Osim ove napomene nisam imala drugih problema i moram priznati da sam postala dosta vjerna ovom laku. Ako ste iz BiH onda cete znati da China Glaze lakove kupujem preko Facebook stranice LILO Cosmetics Kakanj po cijeni od 7,50KM.
