Orly - Bubbly Bombshell

Yesterday was a really special day for me. I was a maid of honor on my friend's wedding (due to the traditions of my country we have only one maid of honor on the wedding).
I wore a purple dress and on my nails I was wearing Orly Bubbly Bombshell (from the Orly Pin-Up Collection).
Bubbly Bombshell is a fuchsia/purple glitter in a clear base. I've applied 3 easy coats for opacity. Also I added a layer of top coat on top. Drying time was quick.

And I've came back home not with empty hands, look what I've catched. Yep, the bridal bouquet :).

Happy Birthday Ukraine!

My country turns 21 today, so it's time for a patriotic mani :).
This is my first water marble and to be honest I was afraid to try it for a long time. But in fact it was nothing to be afraid of :).
I'm only disappointed that I've choosed a pastel blue shade (Maybelline Party Blue). I think that with darker blue this water marble would look much better. The yellow is Avon Sunshine.
On my index finger colors have mixed too much and the blue shade turned into green :).
I think it's not too bad as for my first water marble :). What do you think?

Comparison: Orly - Lunar Eclipse VS Flormar Supershine Miracle U08

I also made a quick comparison of Flormar Supershine Miracle U08 and my favourite nail polish Orly Lunar Eclipse.
They looked similar in the bottles, but after the first coat of application the difference became obvious. Flormar had more a purple-like base while Orly had a blue.
I applied 3 coats of Lunar Eclipse on my point and ring finger and 2 coats of U08 on my middle and pinkie. After this, Flormar started to look just a bit darker than Orly. The duochrome effect was pretty much the same.
Lunar Eclipse is still my favourite (I just love this shade of blue <3), but I can't resist a sparkly blue nail polish, so U08 is not deprived of my love too :).

Katee from A Girl and Her Polish wondered how Flormar Supershine Miracle U08 would look with a matte top coat. So here is a photo. Sorry, but only one nail :).

Flormar Supershine Miracle U08

Flormar Supershine Miracle U08 is a slightly duochrome nail polish from blue to purple.
The duochrome effect was more visible in the bottle than on the nails (but it was visible on the nails anyway) and unfortunately I wasn't able to capture it well on my photos :(.
Application and drying time were good. I made 2 coats, no top coat.
Thank you for reading! :)

Comparison: China Glaze - Rich & Famous VS Avon - Viva Pink

China Glaze Rich & Famous reminded me of Avon Viva Pink and I made a quick comparison.
I applied 3 thin coats of Rich & Famous on my point and ring finger and also 3 thin coats of Avon Viva Pink on my middle finger and pinkie.
Both polishes were good to work with, but I like China Glaze formula more.
On my photos you can see that China Glaze is more cool-toned, but in RL the difference was hardly noticable, especially on the nails. So they're not dupes, but they're pretty close :).

Pink Wednesday: China Glaze - Rich & Famous

I won this nail polish on Maria's contest at Marias Nail Art and Polish Blog back in June (one more thank you, Maria! :-* )
China Glaze Rich & Famous is a barbie pink creme. I guess it's a part of the China Glaze permanent сollection.
Rich & Famous applied nicely and had a quick drying time. I made 3 thin coats, no top coat.
Overall, I'm really loving this nail polish <3.

Essence - Wanna Be Your Sunshine

Here is Essence Wanna Be Your Sunshine from the Colour & Go line.
Wanna Be Your Sunshine is a yellow creme nail polish with a beautiful subtle shimmer.
Drying time was regular, but application was a battle with polish :). The polish applied streaky and was kinda sheer. I had to apply 3 coats + a layer of top coat. The result you can see on the photos :).

Talking about sunshine, take a look what my thermometer showed on Tuesday afternoon. The scale simply ended :D. (+52 degrees Celsius = 125.6 degrees Fahrenheit)

Kiko #336 (Blu Elettrico)

Hi girls! :)
Today I'll show you a stunning blue nail polish <3. It's Kiko #336 (Blu Elettrico).
I'd call #336 a semi-jelly. It's an electric blue color, but it looks much darker in RL.
Application and drying time were great.
On the last photo I'm wearing 2 coats, no top coat. On the other photos 3 coats + top coat (but #336 was also glossy without it :) ).

Pink Wednesday: Golden Rose Holographic Color #105

Golden Rose Holographic Color #105 is a nice pink holo nail polish.
Again, like #116 it looked ok after 2 coats, but I made 3 (no top coat).
Application and drying time were good.
Thank you for reading and have a great day! :)
