Evil is a point of view.

Ah, at last this day has come. And as much as I love Halloween it doesn't mean that this day will be as awesome as I want  it to be. Once again I get the feeling that I was born in the wrong country.
How can this be? How can stores not have ANY Halloween decoration (one of them actually had Christmas stuff on display. October! Really?!) How can people ignore the fun of this holiday? I have seen only one person dressed up today but she was highly intoxicated so it doesn't count.
Either way, it has never stopped me from having fun... alone... at home. 
I have made a special nail design for today, that came to my mind 2 minutes before I was about to do something else. What inspired inspired me were those fake blood capsules which I bought a few weeks ago. 

Vampires. This actually took me just a few minutes to make but omg, I love those fangs so much I'm not taking this design off for at least 3 days more.
And they look especially great while playing with fake blood and taking pictures.

Now go trick or treating or simply get comfortable on the couch and watch scary monster movies all night long like a true Halloween fan you are.
Have a great holiday!
Wishing you a Halloween full of moonlight and magic!

Colder than my heart, if you can imagine.

Oh autumn. With all the rainy days and dying nature my life becomes better. It is weird but it is how it is. I am always waiting for this season to come like a kid is waiting for a present. And let it rain, I don't care. I used to hate it when it rains - my hair gets curly and whatnot; but as I get older I like this weather so much more. 
But even though I like it a lot it doesn't mean that I am walking around all happy and joyful; It is just the way I feel inside, deep down in my cold heart.
I have decided to make a rain on a concrete look to my nails and did it super quick. All you need for it is to take a matte nail polish of your choice (grey cement from AVON was mine) and add the drops of a top coat on it. 

 I liked it a lot. too bad it chipped off on the next day but hey, doesn't make it bad, right? At least for a day it looked great.

Spiders. I like spiders. No really I do... But only when they are miles away from me. But oh how these scary little rascals fit in to the Halloween feeling. 
Not much to say really, I just felt like painting my nails yellow, which in fact never happened before. Yellow was never my color of choice for nails and as soon as I have applied the color on the nails it seemed like something was missing - spiderwebs! 

An easy design for a quick Halloween nail art!

All of us girls have those moments when it seems like we don't have enough time to do our hair, put on make up and do our nails. And today I had the exact same situation. I was planning on making a new nail video and creating something super awesome on my nails but with the first sneeze in the morning I knew this was a bad sign. And yes, I have caught a cold. My nose just doesn't seem to understand that it is impossible for a human being to sneeze 25 times in 25 seconds.I felt so weak and I had so many assignments to do, but after taking a hot bath I fell asleep...
Waking up I understood that this was a bad decision, but there was no way of turning back the time. And how can a nail blogger go out somewhere without her nails done? Impossible! So here is what was my solution to this time management problem -  AVON speed dry nail polishes!
You will have to excuse me for forgetting the name of the beige color, I have left it at my parent's place when I visited them today and now I cannot remember how was it called. Stupid cold makes me feel stupid. But the red one is called Red Wine.

When you are in a hurry these polishes are simply life savers! The red one takes two coats to apply  not to be opaque, but it dries so fast you can't even notice that it is already dry.
Apply a tiny red heart on one of the beige nails and it look like you have spent quite some time on your nails, even though it took less than 5 minutes to do!
So tell me, do you have your own "life savers" like these?

I can grant your wish.

I am having so much luck with new nail polishes. On my birthday I told my husband-to-be that I am going shopping. I said - "I am not quite sure of what I want, but I definitely want something." And one of that "something" was this polish right here!

This is a polish from CATRICE COSMETICS No. 07 Genius In The Bottle. It didn't catch my eye at first, when I entered the shop I went straight  to the nail polish bands I  knew but none of them were new and, well, weren't what I was looking for really. And then, passing by a shelf I saw this little shiny bottle. It was the last one of this shade and I grabbed it without even thinking about the price. (luckily, the price was even lower that I thought it would be.)
I did not try it on my nails at once because as soon as I got home my family was already gathered and there was no time to spend on nails. So today was a first official test of this beauty.

You can see all those colors in the bottle, right? Because it was so hard to catch all the color shines on my nails with a camera... I tried my best to capture my nails with different lighting and positions. The polish did not disappoint me, yet at least. It stays on the nails pretty good and throughout the day I didn't have any problems with washing the dishes or taking a bath - it still stayed on the nails. While I was writing this just a slight bit chipped off, but as it is barely noticeable - it is fine with me.
I assumed that the other shades and colors will be as good and unique as this one, but all they had in stock was plain boring and  didn't look like something that is a must  have.

By the way, did you see the birthday present I got? I truly think that she is absolutely gorgeous! Harley from Arkham Asylum was exactly what I wanted... and now I have her! And Scarface as an addition to her. 
Could this be  more perfect?

Normal is an illusion.

So it is almost that time of the year again. Halloween has always had a special place in my heart, even though the country I was born in this holiday was never celebrated. It was so sad for me that people did not understand why do I carve pumpkins all day long or do scary makeup for the evening... I just like the feeling of this day, OK? It doesn't matter if I am the only one who is excited about it.
I am glad that my  boyfriend accompanies me on these things and always agrees to watch some silly "Halloween themed" movies.(And yes, I am extremely jumpy and it is annoying to watch scary movies with me in one room but he is a trooper lol. )
Today was the best day to make a post on these nails - the weather is Autumn-ish, which I adore, my birthday is only  2 hours away and I have The Addams Family members on my nails. I mean, how cool is that?!

It was a long time since the last time I did a nail art like this one, but drawing these faces using a fishing line wasn't something annoying. Maybe because of the good mood, and eternal love for these characters, I don't know. But I sure know that I am so proud of this nail art that I cannot stop showing it off.

Oh and since it was a perfect timing for nail art, we have made a new nail art video. Awesome, right? We have changed the format so that this way we can make the videos quicker, which means more often.

The flight of Apollo.

It was a long time since I fell in love with a nail polish color. But this week I felt that weird feeling of satisfaction again when after a hard day of studies I decided to check out what the stores have on sale. Oh my, how glad am I that I have decided to do that.
Flormar Supershine Miracle U08. It is a duo-chrome nail polish which shines from blue to purple.
It was extremely difficult to capture the beauty of the polish on the nails, but here is a photo of it in the bottle for you to see the it better.

It was the third day of me wearing this polish on my nails when I took these photos, and look how well it stayed on!

I made my pinky finger stand out with red nail polish because, well, I do not like when all the nails look too far simple, even though it is an amazingly pretty (and rather cheap, I must say) polish.

You are the one that I adore.

I am feeling inspired this week. Feeling, like something good awaits right around the corner. ( Maybe it has something to do with my upcoming birthday? Nah, I don't think so.) I started listening to a little bit different music, (like The Smashing Pumpkins) I am adding colors to my everyday makeup. I guess Autumn really does inspire me. Hope it will not end soon, I really want it to last longer. Picking up the colorful leafs that fell from the trees and feeling great even during the rain. Loving it.
I am feeling so calm, therefore I did a very sweet very romantic design on my nails. Well, maybe calling it a design is wrong ... But hey, tiny little hearts make it something more than just white nails, right?

You have to excuse me for a weak quality of the photos this time. I had to take them not using flash and i guess there wasn't enough light. Enjoy the rest of the day and be inspired <3

Autumn gradient and desperation. Well not really.

Oh, gradients… They never actually were “my thing” in nail design. But this time I was so proud of what came out of the random idea to combine two colors, that I was showing my nails to everyone who was willing to see it.  I did not plan to do this gradient and definitely did not plan to make a post on this, but I fell in love with this autumn color combination. 
I don't need to tell you how to create gradient, right? But in case I need to - paint your nails a color of your choice, grab a cosmetic sponge, apply  the colors you want your gradient to be like so -
(photo from )
And tap it on your nail. And when you are done, you should have a pretty gradient on your nails. Just clean up excess polish from the skin and you are done.
Mine looked like this. (pardon my photos, These were taken by phone.) 

You know what grinds my gears? The fact that I cannot get any nail polish that I want… I saw a post on facebook about OPI Rock Goddess mini pack and immediately thought that I NEED TO GET THAT. I mean I understand that this mini set had some bad reviews, a lot of people said that the formula isn't the best and the colors aren't unique, but guys… I need it, ok?

 And as soon as I looked for it online I got a heartbreaking news – Sorry, we don’t ship to your country. Why? Why me?  I am officially leaving this country pretty soon. But while I am here, please, pretty please don’t make my life worse? No comic books in this country, no Iron Fist/Macbeth/Doc. Martens, no OPI… And now no SHIPPING? (Check my Instagram  for a picture) Well ok, some of them do ship here but it usually costs even more than an item I wish to order and you need to wait a million years for it to get here. This is… OK I am used to this stuff already. But I hate it.
Every time this happens I hear in my head ( You will never get this lalalalala ) -

Anyways, please tell me that this mini set is not worth my nerves. And know that I envy every singe one of you who has a chance to go and buy that kind of stuff in your country.
Ok then… I’ll go and paint my nails with any other nail polish instead.

Match my socks!

Hello there. I think you have already got used to me disappearing on you like that from time to time. But would you believe me if I told you that real life sometimes takes all your time. And believe me, I'd rather do nail art then all of the stuff I NEED to do. Whatever.
So to come back this October I decided to post some nails I did back in September and did not had a chance to post them.
I decided to do something super easy and something.. to actually match one of my favorite pair of socks.

Kind of  a silly idea, but I really liked it. Simple, cute and girly... So not my type of nail art, right?
But anyways, I am almost dome with all of the things that needed to be taken care of, and pretty soon I'll be back on the track.
By the way, I have started another blog while I was wasting the nights away -

If you are interested of getting my not-so-manly reviews on the games I recently played, you are welcome to follow!
