Golden Rose Holiday #57

Probably everyone have a few nail polishes that whatever you do they just don't look color accurate on the photos. For me today's nail polish is one of them. I did 3 swatching sessions trying to capture the color correctly, but I still failed :). Meanwhile I've seen the color accurate swatches of this polish on the net.

Anyway, Golden Rose Holiday #57 is a raspberry (that unfortunately looks bordeaux on my pics) textured nail polish with pink and blue glitter.
Again, no complaints about  Golden Rose Holiday nail polish. Application, drying time, longevity - everything is good!
On my nails you can see 2 coats (without top coat, that is obvious :) ).
Thanks for reading!

An Apologize...

Hi girls!
I feel like a crap for a few days now. And the reason is that I do things before I actually think.
I announced the winner of my giveaway before I've checked if I can send the prize to the winner's country. And when I came to the post office to send the parcel I've been told that the USA doesn't accept parcels with cosmetic products from Ukraine. I knew that some countries have restrictions, but I never thought that I wouldn't be able to send nail polishes to the USA. Personally I got nail polish from the USA last year and I thought that I could send polishes there too. But no...
I sent an apologize email to the winner of my giveaway Lindsay and she reacted to this situation with understanding. Once again, I'm so sorry, Lindsay!!! :(

So I had to pick another winner. And the winner is...



Congratulations, Taya!
(I know that Taya is from Slovenia, so I already called to the post office and asked if I can send nail polishes there and they said yes. But I'll relax only when I'll send the parcel! :) ).

And in the conclusion: I was dreaming about swaps with other girls and even though Ukraine accepts parcels with nail polishes now I see that I might be not able to send them to a lot other countries. I don't have a list of countries that don't accept nail polishes from Ukraine, but when I called to the post office to ask about Slovenia I asked about a few more countries just for the interest. I asked about Canada, Croatia, Denmark and Italy and they told me that I can send nail polishes only to Italy! Countries are protecting its people and I can totally understand this. Ukraine sucks.  I love my country, but sometimes...
By the way, the post service is "awesome" too. When I asked about all these countries they asked me with obvious irritation like: "Is it all?". After this I'm thinking about to print the list of all countries and go to them asking to check each country :D. Well I'm not sure if I'll really do this, but we'll see :).

Maybelline Colorama #54

Good morning! :)
Today I'll show you Maybelline Colorama #54. It is a raspberry red jelly base with holographic micro glitter.
Application and drying time were good. I used 2 thick coats and a layer of top coat for my manicure.
My photos don't do its justice, try to imagine all these holo micro glitter sparkling :).

Nogotok Neon #04 & Hair Bun From KKCenterHK

Have you noticed iSwap icon on my sidebar? Yes, I decided that I'm ready for it :). So if anyone is interested in swapping with me feel free to contact me. Of course I'd be happy to swap for polishes that are on my wishlist, but other nail polishes are welcome too :). I have access to such brands as: Anny, Orly, Mavala, Collistar, Essence (usually except TE), Catrice, Rimmel, Maybelline, Avon, Golden Rose, Flormar, Eveline, Ados and local brands Nogotok, M.A.G etc. The nail polish range of some brands is small, but I have from what to choose :).

Ok, today I want to show you neon yellow nail polish called Nogotok Neon #04.
For my swatches I used 3 coats over white creme (without top coat). Application was ok. This nail polish dries quickly to the semi-matte finish.
And believe me, this polish is super bright! :) While I was wearing it I went to the beach with my friend. There were some ships on the horizon far away and my friend said that the people on those ships might see my polish :D.

Pink Wednesday: Golden Rose Rich Color #12 & Paws :)

Finally I'm showing something bright and really summery :).
This is Golden Rose Rich Color #12 - a vivid pink jelly nail polish.
If I'd wear it on its own I'd probably use 3 coats, but for my swatches I've used 2 coats over white creme (without top coat).
I didn't have problems with application and drying time.

I've seen manicures with paws on other blogs long time ago and here is my try :). All you need is black nail polish and dotting tools.
I was afraid to ruin my mani with top coat so I took the photos before I've applied it.

Golden Rose Holiday #60

Today I want to show you Golden Rose Holiday #60. It is a black (or should I say dark grey? :) ) textured nail polish with silver glitter.
It applies nicely and dries quickly. I used 2 coats for my swatches.
The longevity was good too. I wore this nail polish for 3 days and there were only minimal tip wear.

P.S. I had a hard time taking photos in the sunlight because on the most of my photos glitter turned gold while in RL it was silver :).
