Ноготок (Nogotok) Glitter #222 (over black)

Just gold glitter over black nail polish, but I like this combination :).
First I applied two coats of black nail polish and then added one coat of Ноготок (Nogotok) #222 from the Glitter Collection. #222 is a gold square glitter in a clear base. It dries quick. The surface wasn't totally smooth, but that doesn't annoy me, so I didn't add a top coat.
Happy Halloween to all who celebrates it! (~~)

Avon - Wicked

Good afternoon and happy thursday!
Today I'm gonna show a vampy shade that I'm wearing right now. It's Wicked nail polish by Avon.
Wicked is very dark brown (it looks almost black) polish with red shimmer. Shimmer comes out only in the direct lighting. Otherwise it's just dark nail polish. But I really like it :).
Application was ok, this polish is good pigmented, so you can go with one thick coat. Dries quick. On the photos you can see 2 coats without top coat.

Comparison: Essence - Choose Me VS Orly - Halley's Comet

I know that I'm not the first who is doing this comparison, and probably not the second :). Anyway, here is what do I think about this two polishes.
So, I applied 2 coats of each polish (no top coat). On the index and ring finger is Orly Halley's Comet and on the middle and pinkie is Essence Choose Me. Both of them were good in application and dried rather fast. But it seemed that Halley's Comet was a little bit more sheer and dried a bit more quickly.
From the first sight this two polishes looked very common, but when I took a closer look I saw that Choose Me has more golden particles. Also Halley's Сomet looked more sparkly under the sunlight.
I counted a price of 1 ml of each polish and unexpectedly Orly's price was lower :).
As for me, I like them both :).

Orly - Halley's Comet

Hi ladies! Hope you're having an awesome weekend :).
My today's post is about Orly Halley's Comet. It was a part of the Orly limited edition Cosmic FX Collection that they released last year. Halley's Comet is turquoise base with green and gold glitter. I like this polish, especially under the sunlight, it's very-very sparkly :). Application was good, the polish dries fast. I used 2 coats, no top coat.

Here's some extra photo, I just like it so much, so I decided to add it to the post. It looks like a painting :). This photo was taken a few weeks ago while I went to the forest picnic with my friends.

Flormar Neon N002

It's a boy :)!!! Today is a big day for me, my best friend had born a baby! I'm very happy for her and her husband. I send the best wishes to young mommy and newborn :).

And since it's a boy I decided to post some blue mani.
Here's Flormar N002 from the Neon line. The color is really nice, but the application was tricky. This nail polish is very sheer. Every next coat dries slower than previous. I had to apply 4 coats, but even then the coverage was not perfect. Also it was difficult to paint nails near the cuticle.
And so, on the photos you can see 4 coats, no top coat.

China Glaze - L8R G8R

L8R G8R is a light green holographic nail polish from the China Glaze OMG Collection. Application was ok. L8R G8R dries fast. In the shadow it looks like little dusty light green polish, but when the ray of light hits it... I think photos of this amazing nail polish can say about it more than words :D. 3 coats, no top coat.

After I made this mani I was incredibly bored. And on the photo below you can see how much bored I was :D. I added some shells and stones to the background of the photo :), and also I wore a plastic ring with holographic glitter and a shell inside it.
Have a great weekend!

Routine

I didn't know how to call this post, but let it be a "routine" :). This post is about things that help me with my mani. I don't use anything special.

Neutrogena hand & nail cream; Oriflame spicy ginger bread hand cream; Ноготок (Nogotok) cuticle oil; Avon cuticle balm
Of course, I moisturize my hands with hand cream every day (well, I think everyone do that :) ). I use different creams and right now I'm using Neutrogena hand & nail cream and Oriflame spicy ginger bread hand cream. I like this Neutrogena cream. As for Oriflame one, I can't say it's perfect, but it's ok. I like how it smells (actually I like all creams that smells yummy :) ). Also I moisturize cuticles every day with Avon cuticle balm or with Ноготок (Nogotok) cuticle oil (ingredients: water, almond oil, rose oil, vitamin E, panthenol). Both cuticle moisturizers are rather good.
I think now I have to say a few words about Ноготок (Nogotok) brand. Ноготок (Nogotok) (in english "nail") is a Ukrainian brand. Ноготок (Nogotok) produces nail polishes, nail care products and nail polish removers. Their products're rather cheap (for example, nail polishes cost 1,5 - 2 $ each).

Ноготок (Nogotok) whitening agent; Avon adhesive base coat; Ноготок (Nogotok) top coat
As for base coats, now I'm using whitening agent by Ноготок (Nogotok) and Avon adhesive base coat. I'm not sure if whitening agent by Ноготок (Nogotok) really helps to make my nails whiter, but it's good as a base coat :). And also I use Ноготок (Nogotok) top coat.

Avon quick dry nail spray; Avon quick dry drops; Oriflame quick dry drops
Sometimes I use quick dries. I use quick dry nail spray and drops by Avon and also quick dry drops by Oriflame. Both Avon products are on oil base. I don't like the spray because when I'm using it, the spray goes not only on my nails, but also everywhere around. The quick dry drops by Oriflame're not oily. After I put a drop of it on my nail, it gets absorbed instantly, and that's why I like it. All this three quick dries help nail polish to dry a little bit more quickly.

Ноготок (Nogotok) nail polish remover with camomile extract from the Classic Collection
And of course I use a nail polish remover :). It's already been a long time since I'm using Ноготок (Nogotok) nail polish removers. This one, that I'm using now is 50 ml and it's with camomile extract from the Classic Collection, but usually I buy 100 ml ones. I prefer Ноготок (Nogotok) nail polish removers with acetone. In their Classic Collection there're also a pink nail polish remover, which is with rose extract, a blue nail polish remover (with seaweed extract) and a green one (with tea tree extract).

Golden Rose Holographic Color #110

Here's Golden Rose #110 from the Holographic Color line. It's purple holographic nail polish. Again, like in #109 the holographic effect is rather slight, but I think that it's more visible in #110. Application was ok. The polish dries fast, like most of holographics. On the photos you can see 2 coats, no top coat.

Pink Wednesday: L'ambre Noir #021

Today I'm gonna show L'ambre Noir nail polish #021.
First of all I wanna say couple of words about this brand, because I guess that you, my dear readers, had never heard about it. So, L'ambre Noir products're made in Ukraine. L'ambre Noir produces nail polishes, nail care products, things for nail art and also mascaras, lipstiks, etc. Their products're rather cheap (for example, this nail polish is 8,5 ml and it costed less than 2 $). L'ambre Noir has some pretty colors in their assortment of nail polishes and they're rather good in quality for their price.
And today I'm wearing L'ambre Noir #021. It's pink creme packed with silver glitter. Application was normal and drying time of #021 was a little bit slow. 2 coats on the photos, no top coat.
