Eveline 8in1 Total Action

Proizvod o kome ste sigurno čitali mnogo puta, ali o kome ja još uvijek nisam napisala post a mislim da itekako imam šta da kažem nakon više od dvije godine korištenja. Pa ukoliko vas zanima šta imam reći, nastavite čitati ;).

ENG: Today I'm going to write about the product you've probably heard before, but I still haven't shared my opinion, despite the fact that I'm using it for more than two years. So if you want to know what I have to say, keep reading :).

O proizvodu

Eveline 8u1 Total Action dolazi u kartonskoj ambalaži kao i svi ostali Eveline tretmani za nokte. Unutar ambalaže se krije obična bočica sa lakom od 12 ml i papir sa kratkim opisom svih Eveline tretmana za nokte. Na kutiji ćete naći sve bitne informacije o proizvodu, od toga za šta je namijenjen, kako se koristi, pa do sastojaka (pogledajte slike i kliknite da ih povećate).
Sam lak je mliječno bijele boje i rijetke konzistencije. Suši se izuzetno brzo, pa vam za nanošenje ne treba više od 5 minuta. 
Cijena ovog proizvoda je oko 5,50 KM.
Proizvod je namijenjen slabim, krtim, lomljivim, mekim, oštećenim, noktima bez sjaja, neravne površine, te onima koji se listaju.
Sadrži 2% formaldehida koji može izazvati alergijske reakcije, pa se preporučuje prestanak korištenja ukoliko se osjeti bol ili peckanje. Također, ne preporučuje se korištenje na noktima sa kojih je nedavno uklonjen gel, akril ili vještački nokti.
*I još napomena da proizvodi koji sadrže formaldehid nisu preporučljivi trudnicama i dojiljama.

ENG: Product information:

Eveline 8in1 Total Action comes in a carton packaging like all the other Eveline nail treatments. In the carton box you will find a simple 12 ml nail polish bottle and a paper where you can read the basic info about every nail treatment by Eveline. On the packaging, you'll find the informations on how to use the product, for what kind of nail damage, warnings and ingredients (look at the pictures and click to enlarge).
The nail polish is a milky white colored and a very thin consistency. It dries really, really fast, so you won't be needing more than five minutes to apply it. 
The price of this product is about 3,00 EUR.
It's supposed to be used on damaged, weak, splitting, soft, matte, brittle, frail and uneven surface nails. Contains formaldehyde*, in 2% concentration, so it might cause allergic reactions. If you feel burning or pain in your nails you should stop using it. Also, it's not recommended to use on nails after gel, acrylic or false nail removal.
*Products containing formaldehyde are not suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding period.

Način korištenja

Svaki dan nanesite po jedan sloj laka na nokte. Nakon četiri dana skinite slojeve, i ponovite proceduru. Nakon 10 dana bi trebali da vidite prve rezultate, a potpuno oporavljene nokte kroz 4-6 sedmica. 

ENG: How to use

Apply one layer of the product onto nails every day. After four days, take off the applied layers and repeat the process again. After 10 days you should be noticing some improvements, and for a full recovery you'll need 4-6 weeks.


Moje iskustvo

Oduvijek sam imala čvrste nokte i mogla sam da ih pustim zaista duge, ali u jednom momentu iz nekog, meni nepoznatog, razloga to se promijenilo. Nokti su mi postali meki, savitljivi, listali su se i uslijed svega toga počeli da mijenjaju oblik. Toliko su se listali da sam bukvalno gornji sloj mogla da skinem do pola nokta, i sve tako dok ne ostane neki tanki sloj koji se nije mogao ni nazvati noktom. Taj problem je bio najizraženiji upravo na onim noktima koji su se savijali.

Preporuku za Eveline sam našla na blogovima i forumima koje sam tad otkrila. Otišla sam, kupila svoju prvu bočicu, otfikarila nokte do mesa i počela sa tretmanom. Nisam koristila lakove sve dok mi i zadnji izlistani dio nije izrastao. Primjetila sam kako mi se nokti više ne savijaju na pritisak, brazde su se izravnale, a listanje u potpunosti nestalo. Doduše, tada sam u potpunosti promjenila koncept njege noktiju, ali ipak mislim da je Eveline najzaslužniji za sadašnji izgled.

Poslije intenzivnog tretmana, nastavila sam ga koristiti kao bazni lak, i koristim ga još uvijek. Čak i kada ne lakiram nokte lakom u boji, nanesem Evelin. Nikad nisu "goli". Ne znam da li je to preporučljivo ili ne, ali ja tako radim i nisam imala nikakvih problema. Naprotiv!

A kako ne bi sve ovo bila prazna priča, prilažem par slika noktiju iz lošeg perioda prije Evelina. Teška srca :). Zanemarite suvu kožicu, neuredan lak. To su slike sa mojih "lakoholičarskih" početaka koje nisu trebale ugledati svjetlo dana :D.

My experience:

I always had strong, healthy and hard nails and I could grow them really long. But, for some unknown reason things changed a few years ago. My nails become weak, soft, they started to split and change the shape. They were splitting so much that I could take off layers till the middle of my nail plate. This problem was the most visible on the nails with the banding and folding problem.

I find out about this product when I started to follow nail blogs and forums. I went to buy my first bottle, cutted my nails short and started with the treatment. I didn't use regular nail polish until the last millimeter of splitting nail was grown out.  I noticed that my nails are no longer soft, they couldn't bend over so easily as before. The ridges are also started to disappear, and the most important, splitting stopped. Although, I must admit that in that period I changed my whole nail care routine, but I still think Eveline had the biggest influence on the look of my nails.

After the intense treatment, I just kept using it as the base coat. I'm still using it for every single manicure since then. Even when I'm not painting my nails with regular nail polish I'm wearing it on its own. My nails are never "naked". I don't know if its recommendable or not, but I'm doing it that way and so far I have not had any problems.

And, to make this review more than empty words I'll show you how my nails actually looked at that bad period. Please, ignore the cuticles and messy nail polish, those are the pictures that never supposed to go public :D.


To je otprilike to za ovaj put. Svima rado preporučujem ovaj proizvod, ali imajte u vidu da smo svi različiti i ono što meni odgovara ne mora značiti da će svima. Isto tako, uzmite u obzir da se ovaj napredak nije desio preko noći i da je uključivao više proizvoda, ali sa sigurnošću tvrdim da je iEveline imao najviše učinka.

Koristite li vi neki lak za jačanje? Imate li iskustva sa Eveline proizvodima za nokte?
Do čitanja ;)

ENG: This  is pretty much everything I wanted to say about this product. I recommend this product to all, but you must know that we are all different and that if something is great for me doesn't have to be for you. Also, consider the fact that the progress my nails had taken a while and that more than one product was included, but I still think that the Eveline did the most.

Do you have experience with Eveline products? 
Till next post ;)

Golden Rose Galaxy 14

Nadam se da vam nisu dosadili Galaxy lakovi, jer vam danas predstavljam poslednji od četiri nijanse koje sam dobila na recenziju u paketiću koji sam vam nedavno pokazala na Facebook stranici. Za razliku od prošlog, ovaj baš jeste po mom ukusu :). Ono što me je privuklo ovom ljepotanu pod brojem 14 je prvenstveno intenzivna ljubičasta boja, a zatim i klasična pješčana tekstura sa ponekim krupnim gliterom.

I hope you didn't get bored with Galaxy swatches, because today I'm presenting you the last one out of four  shades I got for review - No. 14. If you follow me on Facebook you could see all of the Golden Rose polishes that were in the package. Unlike the last nail polish I showed you, this one is my cup of tea :). I was attracted to it by its beautiful, intense purple color, and classic sand finish with large glitters.



I ova nijansa spada u grupu lakova koji imaju teksturisanu mat bazu i mješavinu glitera. Baza je tamno ljubičasta hladnog/plavog podtona dok je gliter nešto drugačiji i njegova boja zavisi od ugla gledanja. Kada je izložen direktnom izvoru svjetlosti njegova boja je roza, a već iz nekog drugog ugla se potpuno stapa sa bazom. Pomalo čudan, nije duohrom, ali ipak mijenja boju.  Nažalost, ova roza je prosto bila neuhvatljiva za moj fotoaparat. 

This shade is also a part of the matte texture based and glittery section among the Galaxy range. The base is deep purple color with really cold/blue undertone, while the glitter changes the color depending on the point of view. When you look at it in the direct light, it's rose/pink, but when you change the angle it becomes the same as the base. It's kind of weird, not douchrome, but still color changing. 
Unfortunately, this pink side was completely invisible to my camera. 




Lak je jako pigmentiran, za potpuno pokrivanje i bogat pjesak efekat su mu potrebna dva prosječna sloja. Lako se nanosi i nije mi stvarao probleme iako je u ovom mom primjerku došla malo felerična četkica. Nekako je metlasta i zasukana. U drugim Galaxy lakovima koje sam dobila je normalna.

It's very pigmented, two average coats are required for full coverage and rich sand effect. Also, it glides on nails perfectly and it didn't cause any problems during the application despite the bad brush I got in this bottle. Like it's lost its shape. The other Galaxy bottles do not have this problem. I guess the problem is with just with my example.




I da, ovaj lak je navodno dupe (zamjena) za OPI Liquid Sand u nijansi Can't Let Go, pa ukoliko ste ga imali na listi želja provjerite swatheve na internetu.Vjerujem da negdjemožete naći poređenje jer su definitivno dosta slični po onome što sam vidjela.

Šta Vi mislite? Sviđa li vam se ova nijansa? Koji od ova četiri Galaxy laka koje ste do sada vidjeli vam je favorit?

And, I have to mention, this nail polish is supposedly a dupe for OPI Liquid Sand - Can't Let Go. So if you wanted to get this OPI shade, you'll maybe want to consider the Golden Rose too. Check the swatches on the internet, I believe that you can find a comparison.

What do you think? Do you like this shade? Do you have a favorite among the shades I showed you so far?

Golden Rose Galaxy 13

Treći Golden Rose Galaxy lak koji vam predstavljam je broj 13. Možda jedini koji sam odabrala i malo se pokajala, jer nijansa nije baš po mom ukusu.
Lakovi iz Galaxy kolekcije od broja 10 do broja 15 spadaju u grupu lakova sa teksturisanom mat bazom i krupnim gliterom. U ovoj grupi se većinom nalaze takozvani "dupe" (djup) lakovi za neke od OPI Liquid Sand nijansi. Međutim, nijansa koju sam ja odabrala ima nedovoljno pigmentiranu bazu, koja da nije teksturisana bila bi jelly (poluprozirna, podsjeća na voćni žele ili marmeladu, odatle i naziv). A ja jelly lakove ne volim :)

The third Golden Rose Galaxy nail polish I'll show you is No. 13. Maybe the only one I chose and regretted a bit, because it's not my cup of tea.
Galaxy nail polishes from 10 to 15 are the ones with a textured matte base and large sparkly glitters. You can find some of the OPI Liquid Sand dupes among this few shades. The shade I chose is not very pigmented, and if it's not textured it would be jelly. And, I don't like jelly nail polishes :).


Kao što vidite na slici iznad radi se o pink bazi sa šestougaonim holografskim zlatnim gliterom u dvije veličine i ljubičastim trakicama koje su također holografske.

As you can see in the photo above, there is a pink matte textured base, gold holographic glitter in two sizes and purple strip shaped glitter, also holographic.



Na noktima imam Eveline 8u1 i dva sloja Golden Rose Galaxy 13 laka. Uživo se linija nokta i nakon dva sloja vidi, ali nisam htjela nanositi više slojeva a i nijansa je prosto tako zamišljena.

On my nails I have coat of Eveline 8in1 and two coats of Golden Rose Galaxy 13. You can still see the nail line after two coats, but I didn't want to apply more layers because it is how this shade should look on the nails. 




Što se tiče karakteristika, lako se nanosi, nema previše glittera koji bi pravio probleme, jedino ponegdje na vrhu zna ostati ovaj "igličasti" gliter koji sam ja u tom slučaju otklanjala rukom prije nego što se osuši. Brzo  se suši (kao i prethodnici koje sam vam pokazala) i trajao mi je na noktima neka 3,4 dana prije nego što se oštetio.

Šta vi mislite? Biste li nosili ovako nešto? Jeste li u međuvremenu nabavili neki od Galaxy lakova?

This shade is very easy to apply, there is no too much glitter to cause problems, only a few strip shaped glitters can stay hanging from the nail tips.
It dries really fast (just like the previous two shades I wrote about) and it lasted on my nails for three or four days without any damages.

What do you guys think? Would you wear something like this? Have you bought some of the Galaxy nail polishes in the meantime?

*Iako sam ovaj lak dobila u svrhu recenzije, to nije imalo uticaja na moje mišljenje/Even I received this nail polish for review purposes, it didn't affect my opinion

Golden Rose Galaxy 02

Prošli put sam vam pisala o Galaxy laku pod nijansom 21, a zvijezda ovog posta biće još jedan lak iz Galaxy kolekcije i to pod brojem 02
Lakovi iz ove kolekcije od broja 01 do 07 su lakovi koji imaju mat bazu i različite kombinacije glitera. Ovaj o kojem ću vam danas pisati ima prljavo roza/ljubičastu bazu i mješavinu sitnog šestougaonog glitera u srebrnoj boji, nešto krupnijeg, također šestougaonog zlatnog glitera i crnih šljokica  Srebrni i zlatni su holografski gliter, iako na prvi pogled tako ne izgledaju.

In my last post I wrote about Galaxy nail polish no. 21, and the main star of this post will be another Galaxy lacquer under No. 02.
Galaxy lacquers from 01 to07 are matte based and they contain various combinations of glitter. The one I will talk about today is dusty rose/lilac (maybe I could say clover) based with small hexagon silver, a bit larger gold (also hexagon) and black glitter. The silver and gold colored ones are actually holographic glitter, although they don't look that way on the first sight.




Formula je prilično problematična zbog količine glitera koji se nalazi u bočici. Prvi sloj daje nejednako prekrivanje, i za četkicom ostaju prazna mjesta. Drugi sloj prilično popravi stvari i daje potpuno prekrivanje, mada sam ja nanijela i treći kako bih u potpunosti izjednačila izgled svih noktiju. 
Primjetila sam da je najbolje nanositi ga u što manje poteza, a neravnine koje se stvore se same izravnaju prilikom sušenja. 
E da, ovaj lak se izuzetno brzo suši, pa i sa te strane zahtjeva brzo nanošenje.

The formula is not the best. I ques it's because of the amount of glitter in this lacquer. First layer leaves uneven coverage, and the brush leaves bold places on the nail. The second layer provides a full coverage and  pretty much fixes the uneven spots left after a first coat. But, I applied the third coat to achieve really even look on all my nails.
I noticed that the best way to apply this nail polish is to make just a few brush strokes. This nail polish is kind of self leveling, so the bumps will disappear anyway.
This polish dries really fast, so from that point also requires fast application.



Još jedna stvar koju moram spomenuti je da mi je ovaj lak otpadao u komadima sa noktiju već nakon dva dana. Ne znam da li su moji nokti krivi, to što sam stavila tri prilično bogata sloja ili nešto treće ali prosto moram napisati :). 
Već znate da meni to i nije neki problem jer često mijenjam lak, ali možda bi nekome bio. Lak o kojem sam pisala prošli put mi je trajao 6 dana bez ikakvih oštećenja, tako da sam nekako isto očekivala i od ovog.

Another thing about this particular shade I would like to mention is the fact that it chipped in pieces of my nails after only two days. I don't know if it's my nails fault, or is it because I applied three really thick layers or something else, but I just had to say it...
You already know it's not a big deal for me. I change my nail polish very frequently anyway. But, for someone it might be a problem.  Nail polish I wrote about in my previous post lasted for six days, without any damages, so I expected the same from this one.



Zadnje dvije slike su slikane na direktnoj sunčevoj svjetlosti, i iako nisu baš najbolje stavila sam ih jer se jedino na njima vidi taj holografski efekat koji sam spominjala na početku posta. 

Sve u svemu, ovo je lak kojem sam se najviše radovala kada sam birala lakove za recenziju. Boja i kombinacija glitera me naprosto oduševljavaju, pa mu opraštam i lošiju formulu i to što je kratko trajao. Pokušaću sledeći put lakirati preko nekog nude laka, možda bude nešto bolje.

Šta vi mislite? Sviđa li vam se ova nijansa? Imate li neke lakove koje rado nosite bez obzira što vam zadaju probleme prilikom nanošenja ili što se tiče trajnosti? 

Hvala na čitanju! Puno pozdrava do sledećeg posta :)

The last two photos have been taken in direct sunlight. They are not the best I could show, but they are the only ones where you can see the holo glitter I was talking about.

Despite everything, I really like this nail polish. It's the one I was looking forward the most. The color and the glitter combination amaze me, so I ques I can forgive its disadvantages. Next time I'll try to apply it over some nude nail polish, maybe it'll last longer that way.

What do you think? Do you like this nail polish, and do you have some that you love to wear no matter applying or durability problems?

Thank you for stopping by! Till next post...

Golden Rose Galaxy 21

Galaxy je jedna od zadnjih Golden Rose kolekcija lakova, sastoji se od 36 različitih nijansi teksturisanih lakova koji iako spadaju u teksturisane prilično se razlikuju od onih iz Holiday kolekcije. Dakle ne radi se samo o hrapavoj teksturi, nego i o raznim kombinacijama glitera koji daju efekat pješčanog svjetlucanja. Kao da ste posuli gliter po noktima, i ne morate ga fiksirati nadlakom :).
Dolaze pakovani u okrugle bočice od 10,3 ml, i četkicama koje su dosta uže od onih u Rich Color i Holiday lakovima ali su i dalje jednostavne za rukovanje. 
Galaxy koji ćete danas vidjeti je onaj pod brojem 21...

Galaxy is one of the latest Golden Rose collections. It consists of 36 different textured nail polishes. But, they are not just textured like the ones from Holiday collection, they are made of a lot more glitter combinations which gives them that sparkly sand effect. It's like you sprinkled your nail with glitter and you don't have to seal it with top coat :)
They come in simple round bottles which contains 10, 3 ml of the product. The brush is narrower that the one in Rich Color and Holiday nail polishes but it still does a great work.
The Galaxy you'll see today is the one with number 21...


U bočici ne izgleda kao neka spektakularna nijansa, više kao nespretna mješavina glitera od koje ne očekujete puno. Istina je, ustvari, da potpuno drugačije izgleda na noktima. Do izražaja najviše dolazi zlatni i rozi gliter a providna "rozikasta" baza se tek naslućuje negdje ispod svih tih šljokica. Takođe sadrži i jako sitni duohrom šimer koji se najbolje vidi na direktnom sunčevom svjetlu i zavisno od ugla gledanja može da vuče na zelenu boju.

When you look it in the bottle, it doesn't look like any especially beautiful shade. More like some clumsy glitter mix. The truth is that it looks way different on the nails. Pink and golden glitter are the most visible, and the clear pinkish base fell under all that glitter. It also contains very small duochrom particles you can see in the direct sunlight and depending on the point of view can look green.



Uprkos bazi i rozim šljokicama, ja bih rekla da ovaj lak na noktima izgleda kao neka breskvasta boja. 
Na slikama imam samo bazni lak Eveline 8u1 i dva sloja Galaxy 21. Preko ovakvih lakova se ne stavlja nadlak ukoliko mislite sačuvati ovaj finiš, a sami se jako brzo suše tako da im je to još jedan veliki plus.

Despite the pinkish base and loads of pink glitter, I think it looks kind of peachy on the nails. 
In the pictures I have base coat (Eveline 8u1) and two coats of Galaxy 21. Over textured nail polishes you are not supposed to use top coat, if you want to preserve the sparkly  textured finish. They dry really fast on its own.  


Fotografija iznad je slikana na direktnom sunčevom svjetlu i malo je mutna kako bi se bolje vidjelo svjetlucanje.

The photo above is taken in the direct sunlight and its a bit blurry so you can see the sparkles.



Meni se jako sviđa nijansa, djeluje nekako luksuzno. Nije ni čudno što su jako sličnu nijansu (ako ne i istu) branda Barry M nazvali Princess.

Šta vi mislite? Volite li teksturisane lakove? Imate li neki iz Galaxy kolekcije?
 Puno pozdrava do sledećeg posta :*

I like it very much, it looks luxury to me. No wonder they called a very similar (if not the same) Barry M shade Princess.

What do you guys think? Do you like textured nail polishes? 
Till next post :*

Summer Gradient Nails

Prije nekog vremena na blogu ste imali priliku vidjeti dva Manhattan laka iz Pastel Pretties kolekcije, koja sam dobila na poklon. Svoje osuševljenje nijansama sam izrazila još tada, i ti lakovi su zaista po mom ukusu, kao da sam ih ja birala. Također, otkada sam ih ugledala imala sam u planu sa njima napraviti jedan gradient, pa evo kako je ispalo...

A while ago on this blog, you were able to see two Manhattan Pastel Pretties nail polishes I received as a gift back then. I told you how much I love the colors, and I still think the same. They are really my cup of tea, like I have chosen them. Also, since I laid my eyes on them, I knew I have to make a gradient and wear them together, so here's how it turned out...




Gradient sam radila tako što sam prvo nanijela dva deblja sloja Manhattan Pastel Pretties 004 (link), malo sačekala da se osuši pa parčetom spužvice za puder nanosila ljubičasti tj. Manhattan Pastel Pretties 003 (link). Na vrhove sam dodala malo laka četkicom, kako bi boja bila intenzivnija. Na kraju sam nanijela bogat sloj Essence  nadlaka da izravna površinu nokta. 
Nered koji je nastao tokom izrade manikira čistila sam malim kosim kistom za tuš i acetonom. Potrajalo je :D, a tragovi na kožici su nažalost vidljivi i na slikama. Nadam se da nećete zamjeriti ;).

For making the gradient effect, I first applied two coats of Manhattan Pastel Pretties 004 (link), waited a bit to dry and then using a little piece of foundation sponge applied the purple Manhattan Pastel Pretties 003 (link). To make the color more intense at the tips, I used a brush with a small amount of nail polish. At the end, I applied a thick layer of top coat to smooth the surface.
For cleaning the mess around the nails, I used small angled eyeliner brush and acetone. It took a while :D, and the traces are still visible on my cuticles. I hope you don't mind ;).



To je otprilike to što se tiče ovog posta. U nekom narednom periodu sam planirala objaviti nekoliko tutorijala što se tiče izrade malo težih manikira, pa pišite mi u komentarima da li vas to zanima. 
I naravno, sviđa li vam se ova kombinacija boja? Volite li gradient efekat na noktima?

Puno pozdrava do sledećeg posta :****

That's about it for this time. In the upcoming period I planned to write more tutorials, so write me in the comments section would you like to read it.
And of course, do you like this color combination? Do you like gradient effect on nails?

Till next post... :****

Dior Gris Trianon

Nedavno sam od jedne jako drage osobe na poklon dobila ovaj Dior lak koji ću vam danas pokazati. I iako definitivno ne spada u ljetne lakove, bila sam nestrpljiva da ga probam a ujedno i predstavim na blogu.

Koliko sam uspjela da shvatim, Gris Trianon 306 je izašao kao dio proljetne Cherry Bow kolekcije za 2013. godinu, ali je ostao kao dio stalne postave pod imenom Trianon 306.

A while ago I got this Dior nail polish as a gift from a dear friend, and even though it's not something that should be worn in summer I just had to try it and show it to you.

As much I could understand, Gris Trianon 306 was released as a part of the Cherry Bow spring 2013 collection. But, you can find it in Dior's permanent range under name Trianon 306.




Boja je jako neobična, nešto između nude/bež i sive, tzv, greige. Ali, ipak malo više na sivoj strani sa diskretnim roza/lila podtonom koji dolazi do izražaja na dnevnoj svejtlosti.  Boja na noktima se prilično razlikuje od onoga kako izgleda u bočici, pa iako biste na prvu rekli da se radi o jednom klasičnom nude laku, količina sive bi vas mogla iznenaditi.

The color is very unusual, something between nude/beige and gray, so called greige. But, I would say it is more on the gray side with discrete pink/lilac undertone which finds his way out in the daylight. The color in the bottle is way different compared to the one you get when you apply it on the nails. The amount of gray in it could surprise you.

 


Formula je prilično dobra, sa dva sloja se dobije potpuno prekrivanje. A četkica je najsličnija onoj iz Golden Rose Rich Color lakova, samo što je malo zaobljenija na vrhu. 

Šta vi mislite? Sviđa li vam se ovaj lakić?
 
Do čitanja :***

The formula is ok, not too thin, not too thick. It provides full coverage with two average coats. The brush is similar to the one in Golden Rose Rich Color nail polishes, just a bit more round at the top.

What do you think? Do you like this nail polish?

Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 123

Ovaj protekli period je, vjerujem, većini bio prilično težak... Ni ja nisam bila izuzetak, i iako je poplava zaobišla moju kuću, neke od bližih članova porodice nije, tako da nisam imala ni volje ni vremena da pišem postove.
Sada kada se sve polako vraća u normalu i nokti se oporavljaju od čišćenja, možemo nastaviti da pričamo o noktima, lakovima itd. ... 

Ali, prije nego što vam pokažem lak iz naslova, moram se "pohvaliti" da sam nedavno napisala saradnički post za jedan od najčitanijih blogova u BiH, MakeUp Arena, pa ukoliko vas zanima moja trenutna rutina njege noktiju zavirite u ovaj post (klik).

A sada malo o Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 123...

Last month was a pretty tough for the most of us, I believe... I was no exception, and although the flood spared my house, some of my family members didn't, so I didn't have time or will to write posts.
Now, when everything going back to normal and my nails are recovering from cleaning, we can talk about polishes...

And, before I show you nail polish from the title, I have to share with you that I wrote a post for one of the best beauty blogs in my country, Make Up Arena, so if you want to know how I'm taking care of my nails check out this post (click)... It's in Serbian language, but you can always use Google Translate ;)


And, about that Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 123...


Kao i većina Jolly Jewels lakova, i ovaj se sastoji od kombinacije raznog glitera u providnoj bazi. Broj 123 sadrži crni, bijeli i srebrni (nešto sitniji) gliter, a evo kako izgleda na mojim noktima u kombinaciji sa Astor Fashion Studio 134.

Like the big most of the Jolly Jewel nail polishes, this one also contains a combination of a different glitters in a clear base. No.123 is a combination of black, white and silver (a bit smaller) glitter, and here is how it looks on my nails over Astor Fashion Studio 134.


 
Na slikama imam dva sloja Astor laka i samo jedan sloj JJ 123. Zaista je krcat gliterom i nema potrebe za više slojeva. Pomalo je problematičan za rasporediti, pa preporučujem da se umjesto klasičnog povlačenja četkicom nanosi tapkanjem po noktu.

On the pictures I have two coats of lilac nail polish and only one coat of JJ 123. It's really loaded with glitter and there is no need for extra layers. Also, it gives uneven coverage so I recommend applying by tapping on your nail.



Što se tiče skidanja, kao i kod svih gliterastih lakova koristila sam metodu sa folijom

Ukoliko se i vama sviđa ovaj lakić a ne znate gdje da ga nađete, pogledajte u MakeUp Arena online prodavnici. Mislim da imaju i novu Expert Color liniju lakova, ali da još uvijek nisu stavljeni na sajt. 

Pišite mi šta mislite o ovoj kombinaciji...

When it comes to removing glitter nail polishes I always use the foil method

If you like this nail polish and you don't know where to find it, check out the www.makeuparena.ba online store. I think they also have the new Expert Color collection.

What do you think about this combination?

Sparkly Purple Almond Nails

Što su mi nokti duži, to mi se više sviđa ovaj novi bademasti oblik, pa u skladu sa tim nosim manikire za koje sam uvijek smatrala da više odgovaraju tom obliku...
Ovo što ću vam danas pokazati je jedna kombinacija koju sam ranije već nosila, a za izradu sam koristila lakove koje ste ranije mogli da vidite na blogu. Golden Rose Rich Color 32 i Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 106.

As my nails grow, the more I like my new almond shape. So, according to that I'm wearing the type of manicures I always considered a better match for this shape. 
Manicure I'm going to show you today I already wore, and I used nail polishes you could see on my blog before. Golden Rose Rich Color 32 and Golden Rose Jolly Jewels 106.




Kao što vidite, manikir je vrlo jednostavan. Nanijela sam dva sloja Rich Color 32, sačekala par minuta da se osuši pa četkicom nanosila Jolly Jewels 106 vodeći računa da najviše glitera bude pri korjenu nokta kako bih dobila taj "gradient" efekat. 
Kada radite ovakve manikire vodite računa da vam na četkici ne bude previše laka. Obrišite višak o grlo bočice, pa u nekoliko navrata nanosite gliter. Na taj način ćete bolje rasporediti gliter, a nokti neće izgledati debelo. 

As you can see, it is really simple to do. I applied two coats of Rich Color 32, waited a few minutes to dry and then applied Jolly Jewels 106 making sure that the most glitter is at the root of the nail to get that gradient effect.
When you do this kind of manicure, make sure that there is no too much nail polish on the brush. Wipe the excess, and repeatedly apply the glitter. In that way the glitter will spread properly, and your nails will not look too thick.



Naravo, preko svega sam nanijela sloj brzosušećeg nadlaka. 

Šta vi mislite? Sviđaju li vam se ovakvi manikiri? 
Hvala na čitanju...
Do sledećeg posta :***

Of course, I sealed the manicure with a layer of fast drying top coat. \

What do you think? Do you like manicures like this?
Thank you for stopping by...

Manhattan Pastell Pretties 003

Ne znam da li se sjećate ili ne, ali prije nekog vremena sam pisala o Manhattan laku iz Pastell Preties kolekcije pod brojem 004 (link). Tada sam također spomenula kako sam dobila još jedan iz iste kolekcije te da ću vam ga uskoro i pokazati.
Pod tim uskoro, nisam mislila na tri mjeseca, ali eto :D...

I don't know do you remember or not, but before a while I wrote about Manhattan Pastell Preties 004 nail polish (link) . I also mentioned that I got another one from the same collection, and that I'm going to show it to you soon.
When I said soon, it should not last three months, but well :D... 



Manhattan Pastell Preties 003 je prava proljetna nijansa, lila sa dosta hladnog/plavog podtona. Naravno, to je čini teškom za slikanje, jer ispada više plava nego što jeste. 
Formula je zadovoljavajuća, prekriva sa dva deblja sloja ponegdje ostavljajući neravnine. Nešto bolja nego kod prethodne nijanse o kojoj sam pisala. 
Ali, kako sam ja veliki ljubitelj pastelnih lakova, zbog boje opraštam i malo teže nanošenje.

Manhattan Pastell Preties 003 is a true spring nail polish shade, lilac with a cold / blue undertone. Of course, it makes it look bluer in the pictures than it actually is.
Formula is not the best, but it gives full coverage with two thicker coats. Also, it leaves visible brush strokes. But, it's still better that with the previous one.
Although, as a big fan of pastel nail polishes, I don't mind to invest some extra effort for colors like this.



Već sam rekla da nemam puno iskustva sa Manhattan lakovima, ali ono što mi smeta kod ova dva koja imam jeste to što u toku lakiranja svaki put kada trebam umočiti četkicu u lak, moram da zavrnem čep. Ako ne zavrnem, četkica ne može da "dohvati" dovoljno laka, i samim tim uzrokuje neuredan izgled.
Ovo se odnosi na sva Manhattan mini pakovanja lakova koja dolaze u ovim bočicama, a za one sa standardnom mililitražom ne znam. Nadam se da nemaju ovaj problem.

Imate li vi iskustva sa Manhattan lakovima? Sviđa li vam se ova nijansa?
Hvala na izdvojenom vremenu :)
Do čitanja...

I already told that I don't have much experience with Manhattan nail polish, but the thing which bothers me with these two I have is that every time I need to dip the brush into nail polish I have to twist the cap. If I don't twist it all the way, the brush will not pick enough nail polish.
This is the problem with all Manhattan mini nail polishes that come in the bottles like this. I hope the full sized ones do not have this problem.

Do you have any experience with Manhattan nail polishes? What do you think about the shade I showed you in this post?
Thank you for your time :)
