China Glaze - BFF

It's my sister's Birthday and today I'll show you the last China Glaze nail polish from the OMG Collection that I own. This holographic is called BFF. And in the bottle it looked like it had the weakest holographic effect comparing to L8R G8R and GR8. But on the nails the effect was the strongest :).
There're pink and peachy versions of BFF. I've got a peachy one :).
BFF is almost one coater, but to cover a few bald spots you'll need the secon one.
Application was normal, quick drying time.
No top coat on the photos.

Isn't BFF just gorgeous? :)

P.S. Happy Birthday J.! :-*

Revlon - Whimsical

Hi girls! :)
Back in February I was lucky to won Revlon Whimsical on Katee's 100-th Post Giveaway. By the way, check out her blog - A Girl and Her Polish, she always shows amazing manicures!
Ok, finally I've tried this beauty :). Whimsical is a pale blue/milky base with pink and blue hexagons and with small glitter that sparkles blue and green.
I had no problems with application and drying time. I've tried  to wear it both alone and layered over another nail polish.
Unfortunately, when I was wearing Whimsical on it's own the weather was far away from perfect and I was taking photos in the rain :(.
So on the first two photos I'm wearing 3 coats of Whimsical and a layer of top coat.

And here, on the photos below I'm wearing in total 7 coats (base coat + 3 coats of Maybelline Party Blue + 2 coats of Whimsical + Essence quick dry top coat) and surprisingly this manicure stayed on my nails with no chips for a week :).

Enjoy the weekend! :)

P.S. Thank you, Katee, one more time! :)

Golden Rose Paris Magic Color #311

Good morning!
Here is Golden Rose Paris Magic Color #311. It's a purple base with a purple shimmery particles. Also it has a slight golden flash, which is more visible in the bottle than on the nails.
#311 was easy in application and had a regular drying time. I applied 2 coats, no top coat.
My camera didn't want to capture the real color of this nail polish, so my photos are not color accurate. In RL it's as sparkly as on my photos, but it looks more purple, not blue.
Have a good week!

P.S. Juventus played yesterday in the final of the Cup of Italy, but unfortunately they didn't win. So, last game for Alessandro Del Piero in the Juventus t-shirt ended not in the best way... Anyway, I want to thank the Captain for everything!!! ^:)^

Maybelline - Party Blue

Today I'm showing Maybelline Mini Colorama Party Blue. It's a pastel blue creme nail polish.
Application was rather tough, the nail polish was streaky and only after the third coat it looked opaque. Drying time was regular.
I think it's a nice shade, but I'm not in love with it.
So, on my photos you can see 3 coats of Party Blue, no top coat.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Flormar Magnetic MG07

Good afternoon!
This weekend I finally bought my first magnetic nail polish :). I choosed a purple shade Flormar Magnetic Twist MG07.
Even though it was my first attempt at applying magnetic nail polish, I didn't have much troubles. I used the magnet that came in the set with the nail polish. Drying time was quick.
On my photos you can see 1 coat of the polish, no top coat.

And now I'll talk about non-nail polish things, so you may skip this :).
In case someone is still reading, I want to share this.
On Sunday my favourite football team Juventus won the Championship (actually that happened even a week earlier, but only this Sunday they've got their medals). Last time when Juve won the Championship it was a 6 years ago... And I'm sooo happy they've won, but also I'm a bit sad because Alessandro Del Piero the Captain of Juventus will leave the team. Watching his play a 12 years ago I fell in love with football in general and with Juve in particular. This Sunday it will be his last game in Juventus t-shirt, he will play in the final of the Cup of Italy. I really hope Juventus will win this game and the Captain will raise a Cup over his head.

Some Layering

Experiment #1.
When I showed China Glaze Tease (it was a month ago :D ) you, girls, suggested that it might be good for layering. So I decided to give it a try and actually I like how it turned out :).
I applied 1 coat of Tease over black creme and here is the result (no top coat on the photos).

Experiment #2.
Ноготок (Nogotok) Reflex #179 I showed back in march :">. It's a nice nail polish, but a bit sheer to wear it on it's own. So here is what I did.
First I applied:
- on the point finger 2 coats of KIKO #385;
- on the index 2 coats of China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le;
- on the ring 2 coats of KIKO #338.
Then I added 1 coat of Ноготок (Nogotok) Reflex #179 on each nail. On my pinkie you can see 3 coats of #179 on it's own.
Unfortunately I've touched my index when it wasn't completely dry and a bit ruined it :(. Anyway I think Ноготок (Nogotok) Reflex #179 looks rather good on top of these nail polishes.
What do you think?

L'ambre Noir #400 (over black)

Hi girls!
Today I'll show you some flakies.
I like how flakies look over dark colors, so I decided to apply L'ambre Noir #400 over black nail polish.
#400 is an orange/yellow/green flakies in a sheer pink base.
So I applied one coat of flakies over black and finished the manicure with a layer of Essence quick dry top coat.

Orly - Star Spangled

Good evening! :)
It's only the first of May, but the weather in the last few days was so hot, like it's already a real summer here :).
Today I'll show you Orly Star Spangled. Like the Royal Navy this nail polish also comes from the In The Navy Collection.
Star Spangled is a red jelly base packed with a gorgeous red glitter. Application was really amazing and this nail polish had a quick drying time.
On my nails you can see 3 thin coats of Star Spangled, no top coat. I'm sorry for a bit blurry photos :">.
Thank you for reading!
