I found a full display, but I've bought only Grand-Plie In Black. By the way, there were also available nail polishes from the Blossoms etc... and even from Crazy About Color TE :D. Also I've bought Midnight Rocker from the Multi Dimension line, Just Rock It, Blue AddictedLime Up from the Colour & Go line and a quick dry topcoat.
Among other nail polishes I've bought my first scented nail polish Optim Perfume #04 (citrus), China Glaze Tease, Orly Star Spangled, Maybelline (Mini Colorama) Party Blue аnd some sparkly glitter Jovial Luxe #003.

My Avon Nail Polish Collection

In my previous post I showed the last Avon nail polish that I own and since I'm not planning to buy their nail polishes in the nearest future (except if they'll have some really interesting shades :) ), so I decided to put all my Avon nail polishes together and to make a combine post with links to all of the swatches.
A small note: some of the nail polishes are already discontinued.

Ok, here we go, from left to right on the first photo: GunmetalWicked, Golden Twilight, Deluxe Chocolate.

Avon - Sateen

Sateen is the last Avon nail polish that I own. This nail polish is from the Speed Dry+ line.
I had difficulties with the description of this shade, but let's call it brown with lots of pink undertones metallic shade :).
Sateen is kinda streaky, so I can't say that application was easy. I applied 2 coats, no top coat. Drying time was really fast.
Again, like Twilight Blue it didn't stay long on my nails, it chipped on the next day.
I must say that this nail polish was incredible not photogenic :). On the photos you can see all it's disadvantages, while in RL they're hardly noticable.
Thank you for reading!

Ноготок (Nogotok) Reflex #179

I've bought this nail polish because it looked interesting in the bottle :). Ноготок (Nogotok) #179 from the Reflex Collection is a lavander blue shade with a green shimmer and holographic glitter. It's rather sheer, I applied 2 coats (but my photos obvious needed the third coat or maybe this nail polish could be good for layering over some blue or purple). Drying time was regular.
On the last photo I tried to capture green shimmer. No top coat on the photos.
Have an awesome weekend! :)

Flormar Supershine Miracle U29

Hi everyone!
Here is Flormar U29 from the Supershine Miracle line. It's a red shade with a pink shimmer.
This nail polish is easy in application and has a quick drying time. It is well pigmented and can be worn in a one thick coat.
On my photos you can see 2 thin coats of the polish, no top coat. In RL it looks more like on the photo that was made in the shadow.
Have a good beginning of the week! :)

Kiko #385 (Blu Pastello)

Today was an awesome day here and even though I really liked my M&M's manicure, I decided to take it off (by the way, removing was easy :) ) because now I want to show you my new Kiko nail polish.
Recently Kiko released 40 new shades in a limited edition. But since I couldn't find swatches of them on the net yet, I've picked only one of them - #385 (Blu Pastello). It's a cornflower blue creme. In the electric lighting it looks darker than on my photos.
This nail polish is well pigmented. I applied one coat, no top coat.
Application was amazing, quick drying time and a glossy finish <3.
I really love this shade. But what do you think? :)

KKCenterHK Water Decals Review

Hi girls!
Some time ago KKcenterHK contacted me and kindly ask if I would like to rewiew their water decals. I agreed and choosed to try the M&M's water decals - N.NAIL-WDHHK157.
They came in a nice packaging.



I thought that this nail decals will look good over chocolate color, so first I applied 2 coats of Golden Rose Paris #113.
Then I've cut the decals one by one and removed a protective layer. Next, with the help of a tweezers I dip each decal in water for a minute. After it, the white paper came off easily from the design. I placed the design on a nail and take off the excess water from it by cotton bud.
Layer of top coat and easy and fun manicure is done :).
I'm wearing this manicure now and I really like it :).
