zoya zuza (surf)


uz svu pixie dust pomamu, mislim da je vreme da prikažem zoya lak iz neke druge kolekcije. ovaj put je izbor pao na lak zuza iz njihove surf kolekcije za leto 2012.
after all the pixie dust craze, it's about time to show one of the zoyas from different collections. this time i'm presenting zuza from their surf collection for summer 2012.

u zoya-i imaju stvarno dobro oko kad opisuju svoje lakove, pa ću da to sikoristim. zuza je "duboka, bogata morsko tirkizna boja sa zlatnim i srebrnim metalik šimerom i folijastom završnicom. odlična nijansa za plažu sa savršenim balansom između plave i zelene".

na mojim slikama ispada za nijansu plavlje nego uživo. definitivno nemam ništa slično, stvarno je interesantan lak sa fantastičnom formulom.

well, guys at zoya are doing a great job about describing their polishes, so i'm just going to quote them. zuza is a "deep, saturated, oceanic turquoise with gold and silver metallic shimmer and a foil-like finish. a beachy, colorful, foil-like shade with the perfect balance between blue and green".

in my pictures, it is a tad more blue that in real life. it is like nothing i own, it is really interesting polish with a fantastic formula.

chanel april (harmonie de printemps)


pošto sam u "ozbiljnijoj fazi", danas predstavljam chanel april iz njihove harmonie de printemps kolekcije za proleće 2012, gde su mu društvo pravili may i june.
since i'm in the more "serious phase", i will show you chanel april, from their harmonie de printemps collection for spring 2012, paired with may and june.

april je definitivno jedan od mojih omiljenih lakova "za odrasle". iako se oduševljavam svime što je zeleno, plavo, holo i šljokičavo, čak i ja ponekad rešim da nosim prikladnije boje ako poslovne situacije to zahtevaju. april sam i uzela prevashodno za takve situacije, i uz još jedan chanel, rose confidentiel, mi je uvek prvi izbor.

ovog lepotana nije tako lako opisati. ne znam da li bih rekla da je malinasto crven, zagasito crven ili šljivasto crven, pa ću se odlučiti za sve nabrojano. uz to, ima i odličnu formulu i rekla bih da svakom stoji. definitivno nijansa kakvu svaka žena/devojka mora da ima.

prirodna svetlost.
i have to say that april is among my favourite "grown up" polishes. i am a fan of everything green, blue, holo and glitter, but even i have it in me to go for more appropriate colours for some special work related situations. i got april solely for these occasions, and it became my go to polish together with another chanel, rose confidentiel.

it is one of those hard to describe beauties. i'm not sure whether to call it a berry red, muted red, reddish plum, so i will go with all of the above. it has amazing formula, i'm sure it suits every skintone and it is one of those polishes every girl has to have.

ysl rose romantique (core 26)


posle mnogo živahnih bojica, vreme je za nešto neutralnije, pa pokazujem ysl rose romantique iz njihove osnovne linije.
after many vibrant colors, it's a time for something more on the neutral side, so i'm showing ysl rose romanitque from their core line.

bilo je krajnje vreme da nabavim nude lak. ali stvarno nude, koji ostavlja utisak da u stvari ni ne nosite lak. možda je malo preterano da se okrenem ysl za nešto ovog tipa, ali pošto ih obožavam i pokušavam da uđem u sistem minimizovanja brendova, ipak mi je bilo logično.

smešno je da sam ovaj lak planirala za situacije kad moram ali nemam vremena da promenim lak, i mislila sam da ću morati da se načekam za ovakvu situaciju. ipak, to se desilo u prvoj nedelji od kad sam ga uzela. spremala sam se za rođendansku večeru, i odjednom promenila plan šta ću obući, a nova kombinacija se nikako nije slagala s bronzanim lakom kog sam nosila. imala sam samo nekoliko minuta, pa sam skinula stari, na brzinu namazala rose romantique, bez baze, ali sa nadlakom (jer mi je on još više važan kad sam u žurbi), i to je bilo to.

interesantno, ali krajnji rezultat me je oduševio. možda zato što nisam toliko dugo gledala svoje gole nokte, postala sam opsednuta i nosila ga dva dana, uz stalno zagledanje. slike ne pokazuju koliko dobro je izgledao. boja je samo nijansu više roze nego bezbojan, ali daje noktima zdrav, svež izgled. nanošenje je bilo super jednostavno.

prirodna svetlost:
i thought it was about time for me to get a nude polish. a real nude, you're-barely-wearing-anything kind of a shade. maybe it is overindulging to go to ysl for this, but since i am in love with them and trying to do the whole minimizing the brands thing, it was only logical.

it's funny, i planned  this polish for situations when i don't have the time but need to change my polish, and i seriously thought i will have to wait a while for this to happen, but it was in the same week as i got it. i went for a birthday dinner, completely changed my what to wear plan, and the new outfit was completely off for the bronze polish i was wearing, and i had just a couple of minutes. so, i took off the old one, splashed easy two coats of rose romantique, base coat free, added a topcoat (it is even more important to add it if you're in a hurry), and that was it.

strangely, i loved the end result. maybe because i didn't look at my bare nails for so long, but i was obsessed with them and wore this for two days. the images don't show how amazing it looked. the color is just a tad pink over being completely colourless, but it gives the nails the healthy, fresh look. and the application was super easy.

illamasqua facet (sacred hour)


nemam puno illamasqua lakova, ali su mi svi koje imam odlični. među njima se izdvaja facet, iz kolekcije sacred hour za jesen 2013.
i don't have a lot of illamasqua's, but the ones i have are amazing. and facet, from the sacred hour collection for autumn 2013,  may be my star.

facet je savršeni blatnjavko, koji naginje više ka braon na svetlu a ka sivoj u senci. ono što ga čini posebnim je fantastična kombinacija sa gustim bronzanim i zlatnim krupnim šimerom. rekla bih da je prilično jedinstven.

jedina mana, iako su formula i aplikacija u redu, mu je pokrivenost. malo je providniji, pa su potrebna ili dva deblja ili tri normalna sloja da sve bude odlično.

prirodna svetlost:

facet is a perfect taupe, leaning more towards brown in sunlight and grey in the shade. it's real beauty lies in the amazing maching with the dense coppery and golden fleckish type of shimmer. i would say its really unique.

one down side, although the formula and application are good, is the opacity. it is on the sheer side, and it takes either two really thick or three thin coats for perfect coverage.

opi i vant to be a-lone star (texas)


i vant to be a-lone star je potpuno neobičan lak iz opi texas kolekcije za proleće/leto 2011.

i vant to be a-lone star is a completely unusual polish from opi's texas collection for spring/summer 2011.

ovaj lak je potpuno čudan i savršen. boja je zagasita, prašnjava svetlo plava koja izgleda nekako pastelno iako poseduje srebrni šimer. za mene je potpuno očaravajuć i obožavam ga.

iako mu treba tri sloja za potpunu pokrivenost i uglačavanje poteza četkicom, i dalje mislim da ima začuđujuće dobru formulu.

prirodna svetltost, uz nešto oblaka

this polish is completely strange, and i love it. the color is a muted, dusted light blue that has this pastely feel to it, even though it has silver shimmer. i find it to be absolutely stunning and i love it.

even though it needs three coats for complete coverage and decrease of the brush strokes, i would still say that the formula is surprisingly good.
