Maybelline Colorama #83 With Studs

As I promised yesterday here I am with the nail post :).
Today I'll show you a lovely pink creme nail polish Maybelline Colorama #83.
This is the first Maybelline nail polish in this kind of bottles that I've tried and overall I like it :).
I didn't have problems while applying it and it the drying time was rather quick.
On my nails you can see 2 coats without top coat.

Born Pretty Store Goodies Review

As all of you probably may know Born Pretty Store carries a lot of nail related products, but today I will show you something different :).
This time I've picked a super cool eagle claw bracelet for review.
This bracelet is available in gold (#1) and silver (#2) colors. I picked a silver one.
Each bracelet costs 5,22 $.
Bracelet size: 4cm (max width), 1.5cm (minimum width).



This bracelet is pretty heavy and the quality is good. There're no any sharp angles on the bracelet.
I really love it and to show you the look on the hand my sister agreed to be a hand model :).



Born Pretty Store also sent me Pro Individual Eyelash Extensions Curve 0.15x8mm, but I don't wear false eyelashes and I don't even have a glue for them :(.
This is how individual eyelash extensions look like.




Don't forget that you can use code CTL91 to get 10 % off your order when you shop on the Born Pretty Store.


Have a good Sunday evening! I'll be back tomorrow with a nail post :).

Avon - Serene

Hi girls!
I broke one nail on the swatching hand so I had to shorten them all (bad, bad table! :) ).
Anyway today I want to show you a turquoise creme nail polish called Serene by Avon. Depending on the lighting conditions it can look more mint. Also Serene looks greener in the bottle than on the nails.
Application and drying time were fine. I used 2 coats, no top coat.

New In

Here are my latest buys :).
I bought Ados #502 - a white nail polish that isn't sheer (finally!).
My Avon order arrived with On Point Blue and Serene nail polishes.
Also I bought Maybelline Colorama #83 and #54, and Nogotok #02 from Mix Glitter Collection.
I got Essence Caramel Hot Chocolate and Gingerbread Chai Latte hand balms and a backup for both of them :). Though these balms are from winter edition they just arrived to our shop and I'm sure that if I wouldn't get backups now I wouldn't be able to buy a replacement ever :).


Also I bought a few Golden Rose nail polishes:
Golden Rose Selective Flirt Butterfly
Golden Rose Selective Creme Brulee
Golden Rose Rich Color #16
Golden Rose Rich Color #12   
and gel look top coat.


Thanks for looking! :)
