n.6 Beauty Experience Nail Fashion Color

First of all I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Let your dreams come true in 2012! :)
Today I want to show you Italian nail polish that my aunt gave me some time ago. It's n.6 Beauty Experience nail polish from the Nail Fashion Color line. But I'm not sure what number this polish is. I found only number 25 on the bottom of the bottle (and this number is made of glass, that's why I think that it's some number of the bottle, not of the polish :)  ). So I went to their website wondering what color I might have. And the one that looked pretty close to mine is called Liquid Jewel. May be it is it :).
Anyway, it's nice bronze foil. Dries quick. I made 2 rather easy coats, no top coat.

The majority of people in Ukraine are Orthodox (so am I). We celebrate Christmas on the 7-th of January. So our winter holidays are only beginning. That's why my family placed a fir tree only a few days ago. So here are some photos of my New Year/Christmas tree :).

Avon - Splendid Blue

Hi, girls! I'm back from my unexpected break. I couldn't post anything because my internet didn't work :(.
And today I want to show you another Avon nail polish (I'm almost done with them :) ). This one is called Splendid Blue. It's a blue shade with sparkly blue shimmer. It was good in application and opaque in one thick coat. Drying time was quick.
On my photos you can see 2 coats of Splendid Blue, no top coat. I must say that it looks better in RL :).
What do you think of it?

Avon - Deluxe Chocolate

Here I am again with another Avon nail polish :).
And first I want to say that I'm not Avon Representative. I just have near 15 their polishes :).
I think that my nail polish obsession started exactly from Avon polishes. It was near 2 years ago, and I even remember that first polishes that I ordered were Viva Pink and Twilight Blue :). 2 years ago I didn't know about many other brands, and also some of the brands was (and is) really hard to get here... Talking about Avon nail polishes, I think that they have some nice colors, and IMO their polishes're usually rather good in quality and the prices're ok.
Ok, now on to today's nail polish. It's called Deluxe Chocolate. It's chocolate brown shade with golden shimmer. Application and drying time were good. I applied 2 coats, no top coat.
Today is Saint Nicholas Day. Children that were well-behaved find gifts under the pillow. Did you behave well? :)
Thank you for reading! :)

Avon - Twilight Blue

Hello ladies!
Here is Twilight Blue nail polish from the Avon Speed Dry+ line.
Twilight Blue is a dark blue polish with blue shimmer. I must say that when the lighting is not enough it looks almost black without any shimmer :D.
What you can see on the photos is 2 coats, no top coat (this nail polish is well pigmented and even one coat can be enough). And the drying time was really quick.
In general, I think I like this nail polish. What I didn't like about it is that it didn't stay long on my nails (I got tip wear after a few days). What do you think?

Little Haul

Good evening! :)
Today I went shopping with my sister and now I want to share with you what I've bought. Of course, I've bought nail polishes :). I found some Essence nail polishes from the past trend editions. I bought Don't Bite Me - Kiss Me and Ready To Be Bitten. They were last 2 polishes they have in the store from the Twilight Saga: Eclipse Collection TE. Also I bought L'ambre Noir nail polish #400 - nice flakies :). And except nail polishes I've bought Essence duo eyeshadow SO-BEautiful, quattro eyeshadow Oh-So-Cute and Maybelline Colorsensational Lucious lipgloss - Watermelon Punch.

Pink Wednesday: China Glaze - Exceptionally Gifted

Hi all! :)
Here is China Glaze Exceptionally Gifted nail polish from the Exceptionally Gifted Collection, which supposed to be a wedding collection.
Exceptionally Gifted is pearly light pink polish. It's rather sheer, so what you see on the photos is 3 coats, no top coat. Drying time wasn't a problem, it dried fast. But the problem was with the streaks :(.
Under the sunlight this nail polish becomes "alive" and then I like it :). What do you think about it?

Etual Podium Stars #31 + M.A.G Satine Top Coat

Good morning everyone!
I'm quite ashamed by posting this swatches, but I want to make swatches of all polishes that I own, so... Today I'm going to show you one of those polishes that looked better in the bottle than on nails. Actually I bought this polish before my nail polish addiction started :).
Etual is cheap Ukrainian brand. They produce different beauty products. Their nail polish line is called Podium Stars (one nail polish contains 12 ml and costs near 1,5 $).
Now to #31. It's a burgundy shimmer polish. Drying time was ok. I made 2 coats, but I didn't really like the way it looked on my nails. I don't like the color and this visible brush strokes :(... That's why I decided to add a coat of M.A.G satine top coat. And at last my mani became to look not horrible :D.
Thanks for reading and have a nice weekend!
