Kyiv (29.04.2014)

First of all I want to thank all of you who wrote supportive comments to my previous post. It really means a lot to me, thank you!!! <3

Today I won't talk about nails. I had a chance to visit Kyiv yesterday and now I want to share with you some photos that I made there.
Of course I visited Maidan Nezalezhnosti ("Independence Square").


Words made of bricks mean: "Stop the propaganda, there's no fascism here".


This is how the Trade Unions Building looks after it was set on fire in February by elite commandos of the Security Service of Ukraine. There were protesters inside the building when the fire started...


Nowadays people lay flowers and candles on the barricades where the fierce fighting took place during the revolution.






The text on the photo below says: "People, start to think".


The graffiti is dedicated to the Сelestial Hundred (to all the heroes who lost their lifes during the revolution). The text on top says: "They covered us by wings" and on the bottom: "The Сelestial Hundred. Known and unknown ...".


Here is the banner with photos of the fallen heroes... Text says: "Remember them!".





Dynamo Stadium named after Valeriy Lobanovskyi is another place where the confrontation between the protesters and police was the fiercest.



On the last photo there's a huge banner with the text: "United country" written on Ukrainian and Russian languages. As for me, I live in the south of the country in the russian-speaking region, but I'm bilingual like the most of the people of Ukraine. Trust me, nobody forbids you to speak russian or any other language in Ukraine.


And if you have a few free minutes, watch the video below. This song became a non-official anthem of Ukrainian revolution. The song is called "Voiny Sveta (the warriors of light)" and it's performed by Belorusian band "Lyapis Trubetskoy".


Next post will be nail polish-related, I promise! :)

Max Factor - Fantasy Fire (over Kiko #335)

Good morning, ladies (and gentlemen :) )!

I want to apologize for not posting more regulary. You know, my country is going through a very difficult period and nowadays our life is far from being "normal". I feel stressed every day, I watch and read so much news about all that is happening. Then I open my blog and just can't collect my thoughts and concentrate on the blog as much as I'd want to... Though I still love nail polish and I'm not planning to quit blogging :).

Today's nail polish is well-known and maybe already forgotten Max Factor Fantasy Fire.
I have to thank dear Aly for helping me to get this gem! :-*
Fantasy Fire is a purple jelly nail polish with gorgeous multichrome shimmer that shifts red/gold/green.
It's quite sheer to wear on its own, but it's a great polish for layering.
I used 1 coat of Fantasy Fire (without top coat) over Kiko #335 (Blu Inchiostro).
Drying time was quick.

Thank you for reading! <3

Kiko #335 (Blu Inchiostro)

Hi girls!
Today I'll show another gorgeous Italian nail polish I got it from Aly :).
This is Kiko #335 (Blu Inchiostro) - a blue jelly nail polish.
Application and drying time were good.
For my manicure I used 3 thin coats without top coat, but if you want you can use 2 thicker coats instead.

Maybelline Polka Dots #197 (over Kiko #391)

Over Kiko #391 (Verde Erba) I applied 1 coat of Maybelline Polka Dots #197 (+ top coat). 
#197 is different sized black and white glitter in a clear base.
I must admit that I had to fish a bit for big hexes.
What do you think of this combination? :)
