Saran Wrap Manicure

This was my first saran wrap manicure and I wanted to make it in fall colors :).
First I've applied Golden Rose Paris #113 and let it dry.
Then I've applied one coat of Avon Sunshine over it and dabbed the polish with a scrunched up piece of saran wrap (cling film). I did this step twice, but I'm not sure that it was a right decision :).
At the end I added a layer of top coat.
What do you think?



Happy Halloween (if you celebrate it)! (~~)

Essence - Hard To Resist

Essence Hard To Resist (from the Colour & Go line) is an awesome blue shimmer nail polish.
It applied easily and was opaque after one single coat, but I applied 2 (no top coat). Drying time was quick.
Hard To Resist looked even prettier in RL :).
Have a good day!

Golden Rose Matte Velvet #101

Golden Rose #101 from the Matte Velvet line is a light blue nail polish with a silver shimmer and it has a satin finish.
Application was ok, drying time was quick.
On my photos you can see 2 coats of the polish (without top coat), but photo in the sunlight was taken on the second day of wear, so the polish doesn't look really matte there :).
Enjoy your weekend!

Firmoo Sunglasses Review

Today I have an unusual review as for nail blog :).
Few weeks ago I was contacted by Firmoo.com - online eyeglasses store. They asked me if I was interested to try one of their glasses or sunglasses. Of course I agreed, I like trying new things :).
I don't wear glasses so I've choosed non-prescription sunglasses #OTO2505.
And I must say Firmoo service is great.
As for sunglasses, I was really imressed with their quality.
Sunglasses came in the purple plastic case with a pink cleaning cloth. Also I've got a black bag to carry sunglasses in and a screw driver with a 6 extra screws.
I would definetely recomend Firmoo.com for everyone who is looking for glasses or sunglasses. By the way, Firmoo launched a program offering free eyewear for first-time buyers. You just need to pay the shipping. Read more about this program here.



I just love this cute bows on the sides of the glasses :).


My sister agreed to be a model, so meet my sister! :)



The beautiful place were photos were taken is Sofiyivsky Park in Uman town, Cherkasy region, Ukraine.
Sofiyivsky Park is 216 years old now. Its grottos, whirling foamy waterfalls, whimsically shaped rocks, arbours, pavilions, footbridges, flower beds and forest lands are amazing. Here is an extra photo with the "Snake" fountain :).


*Some of the product(s) in this post was(were) sent me for review. For more information read my Disclosure Policy.

Blue Ombre Manicure

Good afternoon!
You probably already know that I love blue colors the most, so it's not a surprise that I decided to make my first ombre manicure in blues :). I applied on my thumb finger nail Essence Just Rock It, on the index finger nail Ados #551, on the middle finger nail Kiko #336, on the ring finger nail Kiko #385 and on the pinkie Flormar Neon N002.
Does it look like ombre manicure? :)
Have a good beginning of the week!

Avon - Red Reveal (+ comparison)

Recently Avon released 4 new nail polish shades in a limited edition. The only one I've picked is called Red Reveal.
Red Reveal is a pinky-red creme nail polish. Application was good, drying time was regular. I applied 2 coats, no top coat.
The most accurate color is shown on the photo in the shade. And there you can also see how glossy this polish is :).

And here is a quick comparison of Avon reds. On the "left" nail is Real Red and on the "right" nail is Red Reveal. They're pretty close, but Red Reveal is more blue-toned. Also Red Reveal is more pigmented.
 


Thank you for reading! :)
