Essence - Here's My Number

Essence Here's My Number is a black textured nail polish with silver shimmer and holographic glitter (which unfortunately didn't want to show itself on my photos :) ). This is the last Essence Sparkle Sand Effect nail polish that I won on Taya's giveaway.
Application and drying time were ok. Here I used 2 coats.
Thanks for looking!

El Corazon - Holography-Spark (over Eveline MiniMAX #811)

I planned to write this post about beautiful El Corazon nail polish last week, but I didn't feel like blogging. And if you watch TV and heard the news about Ukraine you can understand why...
Yes, my blog is about nail polishes, not politics, but who cares about nail polish when the snipers are killing guiltless unarmed people in the center of your capital?

I have no words to describe what I feel and what I think (especially in English), so you better watch this video, but I warn you it contains violent scenes!


Heroes never die...

I don't feel comfortable talking about nails in this post, but anyway here's another huge (75 ml!) bottle of El Corazon Art Top Coat. It's called Holography - Spark and it is a clear base with holographic shimmer.
It dries quick. For my swatches I applied 1 coat over Eveline MiniMAX #811.
The holographic effect was much more evident in RL and of course for dramatic effect I could use a darker base color, but I didn't want to.

I wish peace to all of you! <3

Remember I told you in my previous post that I was going to judge the swimming competitions? Well, I was one of the judges, but also I was proposed to take a part in the competitions and I agreed :). By the way, it was Ukrainian swimming tournament in Masters class (Masters class means the competitions for adult swimmers. Here in Ukraine you can take part in Masters competitions when you're 25 years old and older. I will be 25 this year, so I can take part in such competitions). If you follow me not for a long time you might not know that I used to be a swimmer, but I quit intensive trainings a few years ago. So, on the competitions my age group was 25-29 years old, I swam my favourite discipline - 50 meters breaststroke and I won (on the pic below you can see my medal :) ). Ok, now I feel old officially :D.
Thank you for reading!

Golden Rose Holiday #53

Golden Rose Holiday #53 is an orange textured nail polish with gold shimmer. It reminds me of autumn.
This polish wasn't exception from the other Golden Rose Holiday nail polishes that I've tried before - application, drying time and longevity were superb!
You can see 2 coats on my nails.
Have a nice evening! :)

Zoya - Storm

Hi girls!
I'm sorry I was MIA, but my life became a bit confused these days. All I can say, it's unbelievable how everything can be turned upside down within one day...
If you wonder about my January haul, I can honestly tell ya that I didn't buy a single nail polish last month. It happened unintentionally, but I have too much unswatched/untried nail polishes anyway.
Ok, today I want to show you super gorgeous nail polish Zoya Storm.
I got it in the swap with Jelena and I love this polish so much :).
Storm is a black nail polish with holographic particles. It was a part of the Ornate Collection.
Application and drying time were great.
For my manicure I used 2 coats. Storm is very glossy and smooth on its own, that's why I didn't apply a top coat.
Unfortunately my camera and winter sun are not best friends for a holo nail polish, but I added a blurry shot so you can get the better idea of how it looks in RL.
Have a good weekend everyone and appreciate all you have right now! :)

P.S. Happy Birthday S.! <3
