Alessandro ManiQURE Hand and Nail Mousse


Alessandro je proletos ponudio celu novu liniju proizvoda za profesionalnu negu ruku i noktiju za potrebe mlade, odrasle i zrele kože. Pod imenom ManiQURE krije se kupka za ruke i nokte, piling, krema i pena za ruke, ulje za nokte i zanoktice, učvršćivač noktiju i sredstvo za otklanjanje zanoktica. Kod nas je ova linija predstavljena proletos na sajmu kozmetike, a mus za ruke od tada ne napušta moju torbu. Sada mi je tuba na izdisaju pa sam spremna da podelim utiske sa vama.

This spring Alessandro developed a new line for professional hand and nail care that covers needs of young, adult and mature skin. You can find manicure bath, exfoliant, hand cream, hand mousse, nail and cuticle oil, nail strengthener and cuticle remover, all under line name ManiQURE. I've been trying out Alessandro ManiQURE Hand and Nail Mousse since I got it at cosmetics expo (it hasn't left my bag since then), and since it is now nearly used up, it is time to share my thoughts about this product.

Essence Colour Boost Instant Match


Nije prošlo ni pola godine kako je Essence ubacio Colour Boost lakove u ponudu, a već im sprema izbacivanje iz asortimana, makar nekim bojama. Četiri (pet u zemljama sa dvostrukim i trostrukim stalkom) od osam ovih jednoslojaca, uključujući i boju iz današnjeg članka, našlo se na listi za izbacivanje iz ponude i, koliko vidim, neće biti zamenjeni novim nijansama iz ove linije (zapravo uopšte ne vidim da će ova linija dobijati nove nijanse te možemo očekivati da će i preostala četiri laka biti izbačena pri narednoj smeni proizvoda). Ako vam se neka boja sviđa, iskoristite dok još možete da je nabavite u DM-u i Liliju, po ceni od 239 dinara za 9 ml proizvoda, odnosno 129 dinara kada bude počelo sniženje.


It hasn't even been six months since Essence introduced Colour Boost polishes and they are already discontinuing some shades. Five of these one-coaters, including the one I am writing about today, will no longer be available and, from what I can see, there will not be new seasonal shades added, so I expect the rest to be discontinued by next seasonal change of products.

Dance Legend Mars


Kada je pre nekoliko godina Dance Legend napravio Chameleon kolekciju lakova, napravili su i tri laka proizvedena u malom broju, od kojih se jedan nije nikada ni našao u prodaji već se samo mogao dobiti kao poklon uz kupovinu u Rusiji. Ta tri laka su Mars, Phobos i Deimos, a Mars sam ludom srećom uspela da nabavim pada sam pre par godina naručila neke lakove sa Hypnotic Polish. Ovi su lakovi odavno rasprodati i ne mogu se više naći, sem kada povremeno osvanu na ebay-u.


When Dance Legend made a Chameleon collection several years ago, they also made three limited edition polishes, one of which was never even sold, but only given as a gift with purchase in Russia. Those three polishes are Mars, Phobos and Deimos, and I was fortunate enough to get Mars a couple of years ago when I placed an order with Hypnotic Polish. These polishes have long been sold out and can't be found any more, except when they show up on ebay.

Essence Glow & Care Go For Glow & Berry Caring


Nova linija Essence lakova, od proletos dostupna i u Srbiji, nosi naziv Glow & Care. Sadrži sedam relativno neutralnih, nosivih lakova, a kod nas su dostupna četiri. Na sajtu se ne vode kao lakovi za nokte već kao nega noktiju, što je zanimljivo. Nalepnica na poklopcu nas obaveštava da ovi lakovi sadrže kukui ulje, ali ne i šta ono radi (niti šta uopšte traži u laku), no ja sam tu da priskočim u pomoć. Lakovi imaju 10 ml i koštaju 309 dinara. Mogu se naćii u Lilly i u DM prodavnicama.


Essence Glow & Care line of polishes contains seven relatively neutral, wearable polishes, with four of them available in Serbia. On website they are not placed under nail polishes, but under nail care, which I find interesting. Bottle cap informas us that they contain kukui oil, but not what that oil does, or what it is doing in nail polish in the first place, but I am here to help you with that. Polishes come in 10 ml bottles.

OPI Midnight in Moscow


Moja averzija prema braon lakovima ne jenjava, ali nađe se ponekad neki koji je tako lep da ga moram imati. U ovom slučaju ulogu je odigrala i činjenica da već imam nekoliko tamih OPI šimera i da se ovaj savršeno uklapa u moju kolekciju. Imajući u vidu moju nesklonost prema braon boji, nije mi se plaćala puna cena za nov primerak te sam uzela polovan za siću. OPI lakove inače možete kupiti u Primax i nekim drugim apotekama, Nail Line-u, Sefori, a od pre nekoliko meseci nekih boja ima i na Lilly sajtu. Polovne primerke, kakav je ovaj moj, možete uzeti na Krpicama i forumima poput Ane.


My aversion to brown polishes is still going strong, but from time to time I run into a brown polish that is so pretty that I just have to have it. In this case, it was also partly due to the fact that I already have quite a selection of dark OPI shimmers that this one fits into perfectly. I did not want to pay full price for new polish (what with my aversion to brown and all), so I got it second hand for peanuts.

Harunouta L020


Kašmirska šara mi je među omiljenim dezenima, što zbog jasno prepoznatljivog oblika samog po sebi, što zbog raznolikosti detalja u sklopu te šare. Jedna od boljih pločica za pečatiranje upravo ovog motiva je Harunouta L020, koja na Nur Besten sajtu trenutno košta 2,99 € umesto 5,39 €.

37413

Paisley is among my favourite patterns, partly because clearly recognisable motif itself, partly because of the variety found among individual designs. One of better paisley stamping plates is Harunouta L020, which currently retails for €2.99 instead of €5.39 at Nur Besten website.

Essence The Gel 92 Red Carpet?


Nisam uzimala redovne Essence lakove otkako je The Gel linija zamenila Colour & Go liniju, jer su boje bile veoma slične ako ne i iste onima iz prethodne linije. No jedan The Gel lak je nedavno našao put do mene. Essence The Gel lakovi se mogu naći na svim Essence štandovima, a koštaju 199 dinara.


I have not gotten a regular Essence polish ever since The Gel line replaced Colour & Go line, because colours were very simila if not the same as the previous ones. However, a The Gel polish did find its way to me recently. Essence The Gel polishes are available on all Essence counters.

Essence Blossom Dreams Waterbased Top Coat


Već dugo među Essence trend kolekcijama nije bilo neke koja bi mi privukla pažnju. Do proletos. U sklopu Blossom Dreams trend kolekcije, Essence je odlučio da da svoj doprinos trendu hromiranih noktiju. Proizveli su dva pigmenta za nokte (hrom i irizirajući), kao i nadlak na vodenoj bazi da zaštiti pigmente. Iako mi sami hromirani/irizirajući nokti nešto nisu zanimljivi, nadlak mi je delovao kao nešto što bih mogla da upotrebim da zaštitim folije za nokte. Ako i vi želite da probate ovaj nadlak, možete ga nabaviti u Lilly drogerijama po ceni od 309 dinara.


It has been awhile since there was an Essence trend edition that would draw my attention. Until this spring. Essence decided to jump on chrome nail bandwagon with Blossom Dreams trend collection. They have made two pigments (chrome and iridescent), as well as water-based top coat to protect those pigments. While I am not into chrome/iridescent look, I thought that top coat could be used over nail foils.

Zoya Carter


Ko me duže prati zna da redovno učestvujem u festivalima i konvencijama koje organizuje NVO Sakurabana, a poslednja manifestacija na kojoj sam bila je Pottermania pre skoro mesec dana. Pošto nisam ljubitelj serijala o Hariju Poteru, svesno sam htela da izbegnem da nosim lak u boji neke od kuća. Otud je ljubičast lak bio prirodan izbor, a Carter prvi i jedini lak za kojim sam posegnula. Zoya lakove možete nabaviti u UltraSun radnjama, kao i na njihovom sajtu. Cena klasičnih lakova je 949 dinara, a PixieDust i Matte lakovi su 1070 dinara. Usput, sutra obeležavamo svetski Star Wars dan, pa svratite u Dom omladine da uživate u bogatom programu.


Those of you who've been following my blog for some time know that I regularly take part in conventions organised by Sakurabana NGO, and the last one I visited was PotterMania nearly a month ago. Since I am not a big fan of series about Harry Potter, I wanted to avoid wearing polish in colour of any of houses. So purple was a natural choice and Carter the first and only polish I reached for.

Noviteti u martu i aprilu


U martu sam nabavila samo jedan noktoproizvod, ali sam u aprilu nadoknadila propušteno te sada pravim dvomesečni pregled novina u kolekciji mi i na našem tržištu.

Born Pretty Small Stamping Mat

34555

Silikonske podloge za pečatiranje su mi postale nezaobilazni deo opreme kada pečatiram ili radim bilo koji nail art. Ova koju danas predstavljam je najmanja od svih koje imam, ali ništa manje korisna od onih većih. Može se kupiti pojedinačno, u setu sa većom ili u setu sa četkicom, tačkalicom i pincetom.

Silicone stamping mat has become an essential part of my stamping or other nail art equipment. The one I am showing you today is the smallest one I have, but no less useful than others. It can be bought individually, in set with larger mat or in set with detail brush, dotting tool and tweezer.

Alessandro Gelactic Set Secret Red


Od jesenas se u stalnoj Alessandro ponudi nalaze reformulisani lakovi za nokte i Gelactic nadlak. Proletos su se na sajmu mogli nabaviti što pojedinačno, što kao set koji čine lak i nadlak. Na sajmu sam videla samo dva seta, ali na sajtu postoje tri - Secret Red, Nude Elegance i Bubble Gum. Cena svakog seta je 990 dinara, dok sam nadlak košta 711 dinara, što je cena i pojedinačnog laka. Sve Alessandro proizvode možete naručiti direktno od proizvođača.


Since autumn, Alessandro has had reformulated nail polishes and Gelactic top coat in their permanent range. Apart from individual top coat and polishes in 99 colours, there are also prepack sets - Secret Red, Nude Elegance and Bubble Gum that consist of nail polish and top coat. I have the red set to show you today.

Born Pretty BP-L010


Mada generalno nisam ljubitelj etno motiva na noktima, ovi na Born Pretty BP-L010 pločici su toliko topli da sam morala da ih iskoristim za ovo lepo vreme.

While I am normally not a fan of ethic patterns on nails, these from Born Pretty BP-L010 stamping plate are so warm that I had to use them for this nice weather.

Literary Lacquers Grasshopper With Cotton Candy Hair


Još jedan knjiški lak kome nisam odolela je Literary Lacquers Grasshopper With Cotton Candy Hair iz Community kolekcije za 2014. godinu. Literary Lacquers lakovi su inspirisani književnim delima, ručno su pravljeni i cene im variraju od laka do laka. Mogu se nabaviti u autorkinoj Etsy radnji, ali tokom aprila će radnja biti zatvorena.


Another bookish polish I couldn't resist is Literary Lacquers Grasshopper With Cotton Candy Hair from Community collection from 2014. Literary Lacquers are inspired by literature, they are made by hand and their prices vary from polish to polish. They can be purchased from creator's Etsy store, but the store is not open in April.

Color Club Oh Deer!


Još jedan neočekivani lak koji mi je Suzi skinula sa liste želja je Color Club Oh Deer! iz Cabin Fever kolekcije za jesen 2015. godine. Iako pod normalnim okolnostima nisam lubitelj karamel/oker nijansi, ovaj je lak bio tako upečatljiv da sam morala da ga imam, a uz to mi se odlično slaže sa omiljenom torbom.😁 Nažalost, Color Club nije više dostupan kod nas i može se nabaviti samo preko interneta.


Another unexpected polish that Suzy had taken off my wish list is Color Club Oh Deer! from Cabin Fever collection for autumn 2015. Even Though I am usually not a fan of caramel/ochre shades, this polish is so striking that I had to have it. And it goes so well with my favourite bag.😁 Sadly, Colour Club is no longer available in Serbia, but it can be found online.

29. Sajam kozmetike Dodir Pariza


Juče je otvoren 29. Sajam kozmetike Dodir Pariza u Hali 2 beogradskog Sajma održava, a traje još danas od 10 do 20 časova. Kao što je to obično slučaj, većina izlagača koji nude program za nokte ima pre svega proizvode za nadogradnju, ali i ponuda lakova je prilično bogata, smo što su meni ovom prilikom pažnju privukle i neke druge stvari. U obilazak sam krenula sa društvom koje su činile i Jelena i Meri, a završila sam ga solo, znatno kasnije nego što sam planirala jer sam skoro sve morala iznova da fotografišem. Zbog toga i ovaj izveštaj kasni, ali sajam traje i danas pa nije kasno da se prošetate do tamo.

Zoya Elphie


Još jedna kolekcija Zoya lakova koju sam željno iščekivala je Enchanted, pre svega zbog novih Pixie Dust nijansi jer su Zoya teksturci moji omiljeni teksturci. Enchanted je bila praznična kolekcija za 2016. godinu i čine je četiri PixieDust i dva klasična laka. Sa novim lakovima su stigle i nove cene, ali ovi lakovi vrede svaku paru. PixieDust i Matte linije su 1070, a klasične linije su 949 dinara, a na sajmu će važiti popust od 10%. Van sajma ih možete uzeti u Ultra Sun prodajnim mestima u Beogradu ili preko sajta.


Another Zoya collection that I was eagerly awaiting was Enchanted, mostly because of new PixieDust shades. After all, PixieDusts are my favourite textured polishes. Enchanted was holiday 2016. collection and consists of four textured and two classic polishes. They retail for $10 and are worth every penny.

Alessandro Go Magic Crystal Punk Green Underground


Magic City u svojoj ponudi Alessandro proizvoda ima i više setova lakova, često sa nekin posebnim efektom. Crystal Punk setovi se sastoje od crnog krem laka i topera sa ljuspicama u četiri boje, a ja imam Green Underground da vam pokažem. Lakovi su od po 5 ml. Moguće je da će se ovi setovi naći na Alessandro štandu na sajmu za vikend.


There are many Alessandro nail polish sets, most of them with some special effect. Crystal Punk sets consist of a black creme polish and a topper with flakes in four colours, and I have Green Underground to show you today. Polishes are in 5 ml bottles and can still be found on Ebay and similar websites.

China Glaze Girls Just Wanna Have Sun


Zimus se draga Suzana potrudila da mi skine nekoliko lakova sa liste želja (hvala Suzi 💋), a verujem da je iznenađenje što se na toj listi našao i ovaj lak jer nije moja tipična boja. China Glaze Girls Just Wanna Have Sun je bio deo prošlogodišnje prolećne kolekcije House of Colour, koju i dalje možete nabaviti u Alexandar Cosmetics, a na sajmu ćete moći da se opskrbite i lakovima iz dve nove kolekcije - Shades of Nude i Spring Fling. China Glaze lakovi koštaju 498 dinara.


My dear friend Suzana put a lot of effort into getting me some polishes off my wish list last winter (thank you Suzy 💋) and I trust it was odd that this polish was on that list in the first place as it is not my typical colour. China Glaze Girls Just Wanna Have Sun was part of House of Colour collection for spring 2016. and should still be available for purchase even though there is a new spring collection called Spring Fling, as well as Shades of Nude collection.

CND Vinylux PrePack & Dark Lava


U par navrata sam u izveštajima sa Sajma kozmetike spominjala CND setove, uključujući i PrePack, koji mi se učinio zanimljivim jer ostavlja mogućnost kupcu da mu priključi lakove po sopstvenom, a ne proizvođačevom izboru. U susret predstojećem 29. Dodiru Pariza, predstavljam vam upravo ovaj set. CND Vinylux PrePack čine čistač/dehidrator nokatne ploče ScrubFresh (59 ml), skidač laka Offly Fast (59 ml) i Vinylux nadlak (15 ml), a kutija ima prostor da im priključite i dva Vinylux laka. Cena seta u redovnoj prodaji je 1034 dinara (bez lakova), ali na proteklom sajmu je bio svega 620 dinara. Cena samo Vinylux nadlaka u redovnoj prodaji je 1117 dinara, tako da se ovaj set veoma isplati.

I have mentioned CND gift sets a couple of times in my reports from Cosmetics Expo, including PrePack, which attracted my attention because it leaves room for buyer to pick colours, instead of having manufacturer's choice of shades. CND Vinylux PrePack consists of cleanser/dehydrator ScrubFresh (59 ml), Offly Fast nail polish remover (59 ml) and Vinylux top coat (15 ml), with space for two Vinylux polishes of your choice.

OPI Lincoln Park After Dark Suede


Još jedan od lakova, tačnije cela kolekcija, koju nisam primetila dok nije bila povučena bila je Suede linija OPI lakova iz 2009. godine. U vreme dok su se još mogli nabaviti uspela sam da nađem Russian Navy, ali do Lincoln Park After Dark je tada već bilo nemoguće doći. No drugarica lakoholičarka je odlučila da proda svoj primerak i ja sam tu priliku odmah iskoristila. Iako kod nas ne može da se nabavi, ima ga još ponegde na Ebayu i Amazonu.


Another polish, entire collection in fact, that I haven't noticed until it was discontinued, was a Suede line of OPI polishes from 2009. I managed to get Russian Navy while there were still some leftovers here, but even the it was impossible to find Lincoln Park After Dark. However, a fellow polishaholic decided to sell hers so I took that opportunity. Even though it has been disontinued, you can still find hem on Ebay and Amazon.

Sephora Shimmery Dark Grey


U jesen 2014. godine Sephora je u sklopu Grey Obsession kolekcije ponudila i par prizmatičnih lakova - srebrni i tamno sivi, što su i najčešće verzije holosa koje ne-indie brendovi prave kada požele da se upuste u tu avanturu. Dovoljno dugo su mi stajali neisprobani (svetliji sam probala tek prošle godine), a kako sam još onomad odlučila da holose ne čuvam za posebne prilike već da ih nosim čim je vreme dovoljno lepo za slikanje i tamniji je konačno došao na red.


For autumn 2014. Sephora had placed on market Grey Obsessions collection and part of it was a couple of prismatic polishes - silver and dark grey, which are the most common choices for non-indie makers when they want to try to make holos. Now they've been sitting among untrieds for long enough, and since I have already decided not to wait for special occasions to wear holos, but wear them whenever there's good light to show them off, it is finally the darker one's turn.

EnjoyOurs Nail Vinyls


U nail art svetu su lepljivi šabloni veoma popularni u poslednjih par godina i proizvođači se stalno utrkuju ko će izbaciti originalnije motive. I na EnjoyOurs sajtu se mogu nabaviti proizvodi ovog tipa te sam ja iskoristila priliku da neke isprobam.

EOS002382

Nail vinyls have been very popular for the last couple of years and manufacturers keep competing who will offer more original designs. EnjoyOurs has a selection of these products and I took a chance to try some of them.

Matching Manicures - Pink


Zbog slabog odziva na poslednjih nekoliko tema, pravićemo pauzu u izradi usklađenih manikira. Ovo je poslednja tema pre te pauze, a oslanja se na boju koju skoro i da nemam u kolekciji - roze.

We'll be taking a break from Matching manicures due to low turnout. This is the last mani before the break and it is based on one of the colours that I barely have in my collection - pink.

Zoya Merida


Dugo, predugo smo čekali da nam novi Zoya lakovi stignu, ali napokon smo ih dočekali. Urban Grunge je kolekcija kojoj sam se najviše radovala jer je u njoj bilo lakova sa holo šimerom, kakve odlično prave. Naravno da mi je zeleni bio na vrhu liste za kupovinu i onaj koji sam morala da kupim u prvom odlasku u nabavku. Sa novim lakovima su stigle i nove cene, ali ovi lakovi vrede svaku paru. Klasične linije su 949 dinara, a Matte i Pixie Dust su 1070.


We've been waiting long, too long, for new Zoya polishes to arrive, but they are finally here. Urban Grunge is a collection I was most looking forward to because it has several polishes with holo shimmer, the ones they are so good at making. Naturally, green one was on the top of my list and the one I had to get in the first visit to the shops. New prices apply now, but these polishes are worth every penny.

Nurbesten Gears


Osim dvodimenzionalnim, volim ponekada da se poigram i trodimenzionalnim ukrasima poput nitni, bodlji ili ovih zupčanika.


Besides two dimensional, I like to play around with three dimensional decorations such as studs, spikes or these gears and sprockets.

Matching Manicures - Inspired by Fashion


Prošle nedelje sam preskočila usklađeni manikir, a i sa ovonedeljnim kasnim jer u poslednje vreme ne stižem da mažem nokte. Ipak sam pokušala da ovom prilikom pomirim i aktuelnu i preskočenu temu i nadam se da će vam se rezultat svideti.

I skipped last week's matching manicure, and I am late with this week's theme because I haven't had time lately to paint my nails. However, I did try to combine current and skipped themes in today's mani and I hope you'll like the end result.

Kiko Smart 024 Viola Imperiale Metallico


Pošto sam pre nekoliko godina propustila da uzmem jedan Kiko lak koji mi je iznenada postao zanimljiv, nadala sam se da ću ga naći jesenas u Rimu. Nažalost ta linija se više ne proizvodi i zamenjena je Smart linijom. Ovi lakovi su brzosušeći, ima ih u 48, prilično neinspirativnih boja. I pored toga sam uzela dva, da vidim da li ćemo se bolje slagati (nisam bila preterano zadovoljna ranijim kolekcijama). Lakovi su u pakovanju od 7 ml, a redovna cena im je 2,5 €.


Since I failed several years ago to get one Kiko polish that had suddenly become interesting to me, I was hoping I'd be able to get it when I went to Rome last Autumn. Sadly, that line is discontinued and is replaced by Smart line. These are fast-drying polishes that come in 48, rather uninspiring shades. Despite that I got two of them, to see if we'd get along better (I was not too happy with previous collections). Polishes come in 7 ml bottles and retail for € 2.5.

Februarski noviteti


Najkraći mesec je obično najsiromašniji novitetima, ali ovo nije bio običan februar.

The shortest month is usually the one with the shortest new-in list, but this was not an ordinary February.
