Miracle Colors.

I have fallen in love with these Flormar nail polishes lately. They have all these Supershine collection polishes that are super shimmery and amazingly long lasting on the nails. But this one... This one just wasn't quite what I was expecting from it.
The previous one from this collection blew my mind with it's beauty. My nails had tiny galaxies on them and I couldn't ask for a better polish. (Click here to see it)
And today's polish is Flormar Supershine Miracle U32.

The formula is great, the polish looked sweet with the firs layer but all those colorful glitters weren't really that noticeable. A lot of people thought that I had a simple dark brown color on my nails and that's sad. It could have been such an amazing nail polish.
I'm will continue using it, but the thing that bothers me the most is the struggle to take it off the nails. Those crazy glitter polishes... It is definitely a love-hate relationship going on with them.
Love it and hate it at the same time.

Lost treasures.

So this morning I woke up wondering if I have any pink polishes left in my small collection. And after throwing out two dried polishes, I stumbled upon this cuteness.
This pink sweetness is one of 4 polishes in a set from Primark. Yes, exactly, Primark. When I saw this set for £2 I bought it in a heartbeat. And I really cant find anything to complain about. The colors are awesome, the formula is great, color looked opaque after the first coat, and the smell. I don't know how to explain, but I was sniffing on the polish for hours... It's weird but yeah, I like it a lot.
Here is what one of the colors look like on the nails -

If you ever have a chance to get those sets, I'd advise to buy them, at least to try them out. They actually are great for this price. I have not been in Primark for a long time now (sadly), but I believe there are different sets of colors on sale. Mine looked like this -

Every single color is beautiful on the nails.I am glad I bought these back then.
So yeah, today I'm rocking pink.

So yeah.

Do you like yellow color? It used to be my favorite when I was a kid, but now it is one of the color that appeals to me the least. But there are days (like yesterday) when I desperately want yellow nails. and while not having a design in mind I just went with it and basically, here is what I came up with -

The nail design is one day old in this photo, simply because I could not take a photo of it in a proper light and conditions. You can see the bubbles on the yellow polish - these appeared right after I went to wash the dishes right after doing my nails and the nail polish is a very cheap one. I do not even know the brand, I just bought it from a random sales person on the town square. He had a bunch of polishes for sale and I felt like buying my first yellow nail polish, just to try it out.
 So yeah, here they are.

I have been trying to do something interesting on my nails for two days straight, but I guess it was one of those days when nothing goes well. I am struggling with sneezing and trying to do my best at everything and all I get in the end is a tip from the universe tat says "NOT TODAY".
I hate these days. FML.
But enough about me, let's talk about nails.
As I was failing again and again this time, I realized that I cannot leave my nails just with a single color. At least if it is not a holographic one or something. So red/black gradient was the answer.

I actually am OK with these nails. Anyways it is better than nothing.
The glittery red is MAYBELLINE nail polish (Pardon moi, for being lazy to go and check out the exact number on the bottle) and the black one is Avon "licorice ".
I don't know. I like it.

This life.

"Riding through this world all alone
God takes your soul, you’re on your own
The crow flies straight, a perfect line
On the Devil’s Bed until you die." (c)

Ah, the Sons Of Anarchy. I absolutely love this show. Tough biker guys in leather, what can be hotter than that?! I was thinning of doing this nail art for a very long time, but it is only now that I had the time to do it properly.

Perfection on the nails right there! And it does not take too long to draw, but it requires patience for the font though. But it was worth every minute of the process.
You go ahead and check out the show if you still haven't because I simply fell in love with it.

Not much to say. I simply love this design and I think I'll stick with it for quite a while.

Shredded gold.

I like glitter on the nails, but I prefer not to buy glitter polishes. And I can explain why - I mean, don't get me wrong, they look stunning on the nails and they stay on without clipping off for a long time ( well, most of them), but how hard it is sometimes to remove it from the nails!? I simply hate the process.
Yesterday I was walking around the store and my look landed on exactly this polish - Maybelline New York COLORAMA stripped nudes. I really liked the other polishes from these series so I have decided to give it a try. I mean, what can go wrong, right?

And I was right, because there is nothing wrong with this polish. On the other hand, I really liked how one coat of this sweetness can significantly improve the look of your manicure.

I went for a very simple look with this polish and my nails were shining as if they had gold powder on them. Top photo was taken indoors in the evening, and the bottom one is taken under natural light.
If you get a chance to buy this nail lacquer, go ahead and do it! I loved it so much! Money well spent.

Try, try try.

My nails were in a pretty bad shape for quite a while now. And as they started to look a little bit more adequate I have decided that it is time to start painting them once again. 
And to start off my nail journey of this year, I have decided to go with the simple but cute design. 

The nail polish used on these nails is Coral Reef from Avon. And I must say that the color has disappointed me this time. It used to be a really bright orange-ish color, which looked stunning every season. As my old nail polish dried out, I have decided to buy a new bottle of the same color and... Oh Go.
The color was completely different! It was pink-ish and not bright at all. Two coats made it look better but it is still not the same. Well that's a bummer.
Anyways, at least my nails look NEAT!
