Kiko #339

Hey guys! 
Sorry for being absent for a while, some foreign guests came to me and I was running around the city like crazy for the last week! And although I had no time to blog, I did shoot some nice swatches of my oldies-goodies which I wanted to show you. This Kiko #339, for example:

Kiko Fiordaliso (yep, Kikos have names..) is a sky blue creme with periwinkle hue, very glossy and of middle opacity. I got away with 2 coats, but there were some tiny bold spots left, not even visible on the pics. What I liked about the polish is that it dries very fast and basically doesn't require any top coat. No top coat = less time spent for a mani, haha.

Oh, and the shade is very pretty - is that really necessary to say?

A kind of "I wore it out" pic. Now with a new phone I get nice phonopics :)

P.S. When I was about to click "publish", I realised that I showed this polish in my blog already.. The more pics the merrier, so feel free to check my "old style" swatches too :)

Navy Jelly

Girls, I urgently need to share this awesomeness with you - Layla Ceramic Effect #13! I bought it during my trip to Italy with a bunch of other cool Italian polishes : )


Look, look at this 'syrup effect'!!

Layla #13 is a fantastic navy blue jelly that creates a glossy glass look on your nails. What I didn't like was the brush - too wide and quite hard to manipulate whereas with dark shades it's especially important to be as precise as possible.. But the formula is nice - 2 coats are enough.

And a couple of illustrations from "how I wore it" series : )



So, if you are lucky to live in Italy, I really recommend you to grab this one. If not, you can ask our Italian nail bloggers for a swap : ) Oh, I wish I could come back to Italy soon to get my hands on their local polishes.. : )

Cooperative Dotting

A common result of creative cooperation during the weekend : )







Materials used: 
Base colour: Essence Skyscraper (Urban Messages LE) x 3 coats
Dotting: Essence Berlin Story (I Love Berlin LE)
Camera
2 pairs of hands :)

The second pair of "helping hands" was assisting me not only in shooting the photos, but also in drawing the dots. So I'm sorry for some imperfections : )
I'll tell you only one thing: we had fun : )

Pupa & Venetian Glass

Last post from the series of "Italian chronicles", and it's more "random pictures" kind of post rather than usual swatches. With this entry, you can consider the column How I Wore It open in my blog : ) And I'm glad to start it out with such an amazing polish - Pupa #715.

Honestly, I don't even know what to write about the polish, because I believe you can see everything yourself! Firstly, it's a gorgeous bright blue creme colour, sometimes the shades looks close to neon, but it's not really "aaa my eyes fell out!!" bright. Secondly, it has its own awesome gloss! On the pictures I am not wearing any topcoat. Thirdly, it has a pleasant formula: applies like butter and dries well, too.

So, the conclusion is: if you have Pupas around - you NEED this colour. Even if you don't wear such bright shades, you might use it for pedicure in summer. As this time I didn't post classic swatches, I highly recommend you to look at this polish at nailbamboo's blog. Apart from perfection of her nails and pictures, she captured the colour of the polish very realistically.

As you see, I couldn't miss the chance to show you the ring I bought in Venice : ) Venice is full of all kinds of objects and accessories made of Murano (Venetian) glass, and although I realised that it was totally touristic, I couldn't help buying some stuff : )

P.S. Special thanks to my very special photographer

Deborah Milano in Milano

This post as well as a couple of next ones I will devote to what I bought and what I wore in Italy. Getting ready for this trip I decided to paint my nails with the most Italian polish I had in my stash at that point of time (!) and to let it see its "motherland" - Deborah Milano #60. It was on my nails when I landed in Italy and during the first days of the trip. And when I had my first cup of real, indigenous Cappuccino on the central square of Milano:



And other coffee creations in Bologna (what I am holding below is cafe au chocolate):




Actually, I showed Deborah Milano #60 already, so if you are interested in detailed swatches and description - click here. In this post I was just sharing some Italian impressions : )
