Italia & Smalti

Buongiorno principessas! :)
I'm just back from my amazing Italy trip, full of impressions, emotions and fresh powers :) Now I definitely have some new stuff to show you and I don't know where to begin. For today I think I'll just drop a couple of pictures and boast with my Italian haul. Get seated :)

The route of the trip started from Milano, heart of fashion and art. Decoration of vitrines is also art: 
Louis Vuitton
Dolce&Gabbana:

Bologna (upper) and Verona (down) were the next. Both are calm old cities, but at the same time very different ones:



... and Venice is Venice. Famous enough not to say much : )


Now to the most interesting : ) The thing is - I didn't plan to buy much stuff, maximum a couple of Pupas and Laylas to try, but... 


...Italy has so many interesting and unknown to me brands and colours, that I couldn't stop : ) What was impressive is the price: Layla&Pupa polishes are 5-6€ depending on the shop, Deborah Pret a Porter (tiny bottles) are 2-3€, Debby colorPLAY - around 4€. All this is a little pricey comparing to Germany, but on the other hand - congratulations, Italian girls, you have a great choice of everything out there! 

Left to right: 
Debby colorPLAY #177
Deborah Milano Pret a Porter #13 Love At First Sight
Deborah Milano Pret a Porter #32 Lilac Seduction
Deborah Milano Pret a Porter #26 Stardust
Debby colorPLAY #188

Left to right: 
Essence Nail Art Twins Troy
(found for 1€ and grabbed cuz now they are discontinued)
Pupa #200
Pupa #715
Pupa #202
(they had a promotion for Pupa: buy 2 get 3rd for free :P)

Left to right: 
NYC #105 Lights-Camera-Glitter 
(my first NYC, and what a name!)
Layla Ceramic Effect #18
Layla Ceramic Effect #13
Ever #12 Fuchsia Dorato
Optima ?
(pure mystery: no name, no info in the net..)
Quite a haul, no? :) To be honest, it was very hard not to buy even more. I'm super excited about all of them, and started trying out already! To conclude, I sincerely recommend you Italy as an amazing country for everything: eating, travelling, shopping and enjoying! :) 
*waving to my Italian readers!*

  1. С возвращением и классными покупками!
    Очень хотелось бы посмотреть Венецию весной. Летом там красиво, но невыносимо шумно, жарко и влажно. Весной наверное самое лучшее время для визита. А Милан - как всегда - такой Милан... :)

    1. Ты была там летом? Мне все говорят (и знакомые итальянцы в том числе), что лето - самое худшее время, т.к. душно, полно туристов и воняет от застоявшейся воды) Наверное лучше всего апрель-май и правда.. Милан - он ооочень Милан :) Там есть ВСЁ :)

  2. You're gonna love Pupa polishes! My parents went to Europe a few months ago and brought me a bunch of polishes, and among them there were 3 bottles of Pupa, and it's just amazing *-*

  4. Glad you like the places! Bologna is rather near to me. I somehow missed you were coming to Italy otherwise I would have recommended you a couple more brands!

    1. I also saw some other brands, but I had to be very selective because I didn't have much money and I was afraid of luggage overload cuz apart from cosmetics and stuff we bought kilos of parmigiano and bottles of Limoncello :) Otherwise, I only regret not getting Shakha polishes, but my bf was whimpering that he's sick of shopping so I had to urgently leave OVS :(

  7. С возвращением! Покупки прекрасные, жду теперь, когда все-все покажешь.
    Ты вообще молодец, аккуратный такой шоппинг, без особого фанатизма ))
    А вообще самое крутое - это места и впечатления, тут я просто за тебя очень рада.

    1. Спасибо :) Аккуратный шоппинг - это итог небольшого количества денег, отсутствия времени на шоппинг и наличия хныкающего при виде магазинов мужчины :) Вообще-то 14 бутылочек это для меня на грани рекорда, но там так много всего было... :) Я хотела "каждой твари по паре", так оно и получилось)
