This is one of the gellish nail polishes I picked up from Ebay. I was really impressed because they came in 14 days. Usually the orders from Ebay take about a month or more.
Since it had no color shown on the package, I decided to mark it myself. I cured the polish under LED light on a plastic sheet and then transferred it to the cap. Simple and practical ;).
I used three layers for full opacity and I loved how it look on me. I added Swarovski crystals to each nail, for that extra sparkly effect. I also changed my nail shape.. do you like it?
I can't say about the wear time, because I topped it with an UV gel top coat (instead of my Depend gel top coat) which wasn't a gellish top coat. It was a gel top coat - it had to be filled off instead of soaked off. But once the thin layer was removed, the soak off method worked perfectly!
So far I am really impressed with this gel polish. Can't wait to play with the other ones!

Do you remember the TAG how much is your face worth?
I wanted to re-do it, but this time with only my skincare products. My routine has been updated, so I thought you would be curious about it.

Today I wanted to share with you my new find. I was browsing through Muller one day, when I saw they have a new line of gellish polishes. And it wasn't steep priced like the others (18€+ for a bottle, usually), but it came at the nice price of 9,90€! Let me show you the Sensationail Fuse Gelnamel
That's like so much cheaper, and just 3€ more than my usual gel polishes from Depend (for 7ml), and twice the volume!
I liked the package. Gives a funky - fancy vibe.
The instructions are simple.
Prepare your nails and cleanse them. No need for a base gel polish nor for a top gel polish.
Just apply the Fuse gelnamel thinly on the nail and cure under LED lamp for 30 seconds. Repeat 2x or 3x.
Remove the sticky residue with the cleanser.
You know, I loved the look of it.. so sheer and sparkly.
I did like the sheer version, but I did wish it was more opaque or less opaque (so it would be a clear gel polish with glitter, or you know.. pink with glitter, not the midi thing I thought I had). :D
Except I was WRONG. I am not sure if I missed that part of the instructions, but you need to *SHAKE* the gel before use. Because it should look fully opaque with micro glitter... Like the photo above.
So now I know.. and so do you ;).

I don't know why, but I thought I had shared this make up with you all. Turns out, I was wrong.
This is a very basic make up I did using two eyeshadows and an eyeliner (bronze). I think it would probably look better with brown eyes.
It is simple enough, but I did like it and it associated me to a cat.

I have been dreaming about Swarovski nail crystals since I realized my 1800 crystals are utter crap (bought from ebay).
Born Pretty Store has made my dream come true, by sending me this little package.
These have a foiled back cap, which prevents the crystal from absorbing the nail polish and turning matte (that's what was happening with the cheap ones).
They came packaged in a tiny sealed plastic bag - 144 in them.
The thing I love the most of them is that they sparkle like mad!
Even when I covered them in gel polish, they sparkled! I love, love, love sparkly stuff and these are no different. *squee*
I also like to reuse them. I am a bit frugal whenever I can be, so when I saw that you can reuse them, I was ecstatic. Just clean them thoughtfully and ole' - ready to reuse!
I got them in the size SS10, which is 2.9mm big. Small enough to fit several on my short nails.
+ super sparkly
+ are reusable (and are easy to clean)
+ don't lose the sparkle even when covered in nail/gel polish
+ won't become matte as the cheap ones do
- pricier than your regular rhinestones
I am happy and excited about them. I would like to stick them to every damn manicure I make, haha. They sparkle like mad in real life (couldn't capture it on camera) and they look stunning on every manicure. I wish I had discovered them sooner, because now my life is different.
If you like sparkly stuff and love rhinestones, then you *need* these in your life. Seriously. They are worth the extra price.
This product was sent to me by the company itself or its PR. For more information please do read my Disclosure Policy. My opinion is always honest.

I want to show you a beautiful red nail polish with a bit of a pink undertone.
It is the Ruby Red from the Catrice Lala Berlin TE.
The brush is utter crap. I usually like Catrice's brushes, but not this one. It is medium stiff, but spiky as a boar's back! I had quite a problem with the application because of it.
But to save the polish, the formula is brilliant! Easy to use, glides on smoothly. The polish is a bit on the jelly like, but very opaque. One layer is all you need. Seriously, two layers won't make a difference, because it will look exactly the same as with one layer.
Get it, if you can still get your hands on it. It is worth its price (3€).

Hello guys and gals!
I thought that I will not be interested in the Essence Come to Town TE, since when I first saw it at the event (here), nothing really caught my eye.
But after I followed a chat in our FB group - Slovenian beauty bloggers, I learned that the lipsticks and blushes are to die for. Girls said the consistency of the blush is amazing and I really wanted to see if it is true.
So I picked them both up. A set of a lipstick and a cream blush. Both are in the shade Is that you, Santa?
Aren't they cute?
