China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada & Your Present Required

Here we have another great neon nail polish from the China Glaze Poolside Collection dating back from 2010. (told you I love this collection!) and I've paired it with a jewel-drippin’ glittery little number. I like my green neons basic, without any color combos or pairings – matte or shiny, they look great in both finishes to me. But I also love when they're topped off with a ridiculously glittery, colorful top coats. I usually fluctuate between these two extremes and for today, I chose to go all out! China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada (14ml | $7.50) is a straight up in your face neon creme with some yellow to it but it's not the grass green kind. It really is a brightened neon green which leans more towards the ‘Kelly green’ hue. Fun fact: Kelly green is an intense pure green color that got its name from the common family name in Ireland, inspired by the lush green landscapes there. Again, this guy can be transformed into a high-glossy one with the help of a shiny top coat. It's also of a similar texture to my fave yellow green – Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. It's rather sheer so a white creme base is required with three to four thin layers. Thankfully, this one also dries very quickly which helps speed things up. I've made it all nice and glitzy thanks to the exquisite China Glaze Your Present Required (14ml | $7.50) was part of the China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze Collection Holiday 2013. Inside the clear base you can see large matte white, cobalt blue, light purple, and light copper hex glitter with smaller copper, green, and white hex glitter, plus very small matte white glitter in a clear base. It really looks busy and eye-catching! It could be worn alone with two layers or over your fave nail polish shade (I feel it would work with everything). Drying time is pretty good and removal is a bit tougher due to all the glitter but that's expected. I think these two nail polishes are an unusual but very effective pairing. Do you like this combo?

Ponovo imamo jednog krasnog neonca iz China Glaze Poolside kolekcije iz 2010. godine (rekla sam vam koliko volim tu kolekciju!) i kombinovala sam ga sa nadlakom koji kao da je natopljen dragim kamenjem. Zelene neonce ponajvise volim u jednostavnoj varijanti – mat ili sjajni, oba mi efekta i zavrsnice odlicno izgledaju. No, takodjer volim i da ih ukrasim nekim bezobrazno glitterastim (nije validna rijec, karikiram) nadlakom svih mogucih boja. Obicno setam izmedju ova dva ekstrema a danas na meniju nije jednostavnost vec ekstravagancija! China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada (14ml | 7.50KM preko Facebook stranice Lilocosmetics) je dosta drecavi zeleni neonac creme finisa koji ima blage zute primjese ali ne radi se o trava-zelenoj nijansi. Doista je upadna boja koja mi vise naginje ka ‘Kelly green’ sprektru zelene. Interesantan podatak: Kelly green je intenzivna, cista zelena boja koja je dobila svoj naziv po dosta cestom irskom prezimenu a inspiracija je bila bogato zelenilo irskih krajolika. Ukoliko zelite, mozete finish uciniti posebno sjajnim uz pomoc nadlaka po zelji. Takodjer je dosta slicne formulacije meni najdrazem zutom neoncu – Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. Dosta je proziran tako da je baza od bijelog laka (po mogucnosti creme finisha) obavezna uz nanosenje tri do cetiri jako tanka sloja ovog zapca. Srecom, susenje je dosta brzo tako da mu to ide u prilog. Ukrasila sam ga uz pomoc fantasticnog China Glaze Your Present Required (14ml | 7.50KM preko Facebook stranice Lilocosmetics) koji je dio China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze praznicne kolekcije iz 2013. godine. U providnoj bazi se nalaze vece cestice u obliku sestougla u mat bijeloj, kobaltno plavoj, blijedo ljubicastoj i blijedo broncanoj boji. Tu su sestougli srednje velicine u zelenoj, bijeloj i broncanoj boji te sitni mat bijeli shimmer. Ovaj nadlak mi izgleda dosta kreativno slozenih boja, kao da se neko poigrao u tvornici za proizvodnju konfeta! Mozete ovaj nadlak nositi i samostalno (za sto su potrebna samo dva sloja) ili ga kombinovati preko laka po vasoj zelji (imam osjecaj da bi odlicno izgledao u gotovo svakoj kombinaciji). Susenje je solidno ali skidanje pomalo tegobno, sto je i za ocekivati kod glittera u lakovima. Meni se ova kombinacija neocekivano dopada i mislim da izgleda efektno. Kako se vama cini?
