I'm so nervous watching the World Cup I have to do something else. So I'm posting here :) Seriously, what's going on there?!?

Anyway - a franken. I haven't named this one yet, so any suggestions are welcome. It was sort of a "mix everything you don't like together" sort of mixing:) I do like the result however. I mixed 1/2 of Flashy Pink, 1/4 of All Access and 1/4 of Live Forever, all Essence.

Now I'm of to watch the second half of the soccer game :)

Essence - In the jungle and Glisten up!

I put In the jungle on a couple of days ago to see what the hype is all about. I didn't really like it, so I put Glisten up! over it. Now that's more like it:)

In the jungle is a dark green creamy colour. It applied nicely, two coats. And then I topped it of with one coat of Glisten up!.

See the flakies and glitter in Glisten up!?

I only took three photos and then my battery died:(

Barry M - Shocking Pink

A couple of days ago, I got an opportunity to recieve a nail polish by Barry M to review. Well, what kind of polish lover would I be if I passed on that chance? :)The polish was sent to me by the lovely Maja from lič They're the Slovenian sellers of Barry M cosmetics.

Anyway... When I opened the package today, I was like: nooooo, a pink one... A Shocking Pink nonetheless. You know I'm really not a pinkish person when it comes to my nails :) But I guess we all know how this story ends... I ended up loving it:)

Here's the bottle:

And opened bottle with the brush:

I applied it over my regular base coat. Just about then the magic happened - I realised it's really not such a terrible colour:) The application was great - no streaks, no bald spots. The brush is teeny bit flattened and more on the hard side, which I love. I was able to be so precise I had absolutely no cleanup - all the pics you see are tottaly as it was right after polishing.

Believe it or not, this is a one-coater. Here's what it looks under artificial light after just one coat:

I added another coat to see if it did anything to the colour. Well, sort of.. But I would say you can definetly get away with just one coat if you're careful and the layer is more on the thick side.

All of the pics below are two layers, without top coat. Sorry, since it's sort of late here in Slovenia, there's no sunny photos.

Under artificial light:

And drying... It took it's time - I'd say drying time is average. Unfortunately I still don't have a quick drying top coat to test it with that.

I figured, since it's a one-coater, it should work with konad. And again, yes, it does. I stamped a few patterns from Konad m61 onto plain white paper.

Even though I did get this polish for free to review, it absolutely didn't affect my opinion. I really do love it! At lič you can get it for 4,45€. It's not the cheapest one, but even I, the cheap-o of all cheap-os, will definetly consider buying some more of them. Ah, this is a painful hobby for my wallet :)

Essence Into the wild TE - Zulu

This is one from Essence's trend edition called Into The Wild. I picked up this polish out of sheer boredom :) I sort of liked the colour, but wasn't convinced. But then, I had time to kill and went to a drugstore... You probably all know how this story goes;)

Anyway - I don't like it on me. I generally like the colour though. I applied two coats, it dried kinda slow. It says it's matte on the packaging, but it's sort of plastic, definetly not matte.



I'm not keeping it - it's already packed and ready to go to it's new home:)

And a P.S.: YAAAAAAAAAAAAY, we won we won we won!!! :)) (->football/soccer of course)
