Zoya Aria & Kleancolor Chunky Holo Fuchsia

I'm back from Rome, well, I've been home for couple days already, but I managed to catch a flu and haven't been feeling very well. Yeah, it's quite something to go to a place where it's 30 degrees celcius (86 F) from 12 degrees and catch a flu.. Oh well, I think I'm slowly getting better, so it's fine. Also, I've been quite busy for these past couple of days because we're moving to a new appartment on Saturday, so I've just been trying to pack our stuff and so on. So I might not post so often until we get to settle in and so on, just mainly because I have all my nail polishes packed already. But don't worry, I have some nail pics in storage and today I'm showing a layered look with my last posts Zoya Aria and Kleancolor Chunky Holo Fuchsia.

So this is two coats of Chunky Holo Fuchsia layered over Aria. It was quite hard to get the Chunky Holo to show in these pics, I think it was more visible in real life. I think this was a nice combo, though Aria looked really good by her self too.


Zoya Aria

I have another Zoya for you today, as I can't get enough of them, lol.

This is Zoya Aria and I have three coats here. I have to say that I really like this one too as I have liked all the Zoyas that I've tried so far. It is again really nice quality, the polish just glides on so easily and the color is also really pretty. And the polish also reminds me of the tv show Pretty Little Liars because of the name of course (one of the characters is called Aria), so that's always fun , because I really love the show, though I'm not sure if this would be a color that Aria would wear...


Day 7: Black and White - Explosion

It's day seven of the challenge and I had to wear black and white nails, which I don't normally do, ever. I had to think quite long how I would use these two colors and I finally decided to try a simplified explosion desing inspired by Jane from Nailside. Well, my explosion isn't really nothing like Jane's but at least it's black and white..

I did this mani with just two colors as it was the challenge. I used Mavala White and Essence Berlin Story as the black. I wasn't really pleased with the outcome, I think it was also partly because I'm not really comfortable about wearing white polish.. And then as you can see my top coat caused also some bubblying, so this mani wasn't so great success.


Zoya Faye

Just while ago I ordered some more Zoya polishes, well, just because I needed to have some more. I probably shouldn't have ever got any Zoyas because now I just want more... Oh well, I have one beauty to show you today.

So this is Zoya Faye and I have three coats here. I have seen so many pics of this polish, as have probably all of you too, and I always thought it looked really pretty and I wanted to have it but at the same time I had some doubts about it. I think it was because of the golden shimmer, usually polishes with golden shimmer don't work so well with my skintone, but with this one my doubts were not necessary as this is really pretty and it worked just fine with my skintone and all. So it's another keeper from Zoya, what a surprise... I might need to get even more, lol..


Day 6: Violet - OPI Grape...Set...Match

I'm back with the challenge today and it's already day six and it's time for violet nails. Well, I know violet is technically more like bluish purple but I just decided to go with more red toned one.

This is OPI Grape...Set...Match and it's from OPI Glam Slam! England collection. As soon as I saw first pics of this polish (quite long time ago) I knew I had to have this. As you know already I'm a great purple lover and this polish looked soooo pretty and amazing, so of course I needed it. And I think it really is worth having even if you're not so big purple lover as I am.

Btw, when you're reading this I am (hopefully) in Rome with my mom having a little vacation. It's just for few days, I'll be back home on Wednesday and I have timed some posts for you. 


Maybelline MNY #557

I don't have a challenge mani for you today, instead I'm just doing this quick post of a mani that I wore and photographed before summer, lol. These pics have just been waiting for to be posted and I thought I should really do this now or otherwise I might not never post these.

So this is Maybelline MNY number 557 and I have to say that this is one of those polishes that looks good in bottle but not so good on nail. Well, it's not ugly or anything like that, it just a bit boring and quite sheer too. If I can remember right this was three coats so maybe with a fourth one it would have been more opaque but I just thought that this polish isn't worth of four coats. All and all it's nice but nothing special.


Day 5: Blue - China Glaze Skyscraper

Today is the fifth day of the challenge and it's a blue day.

So for today I chose China Glaze Skyscraper from this falls collection. I don't have or wear many blue polishes but I really loved this one, but then again it's glitter and I love everything glitter. I've seen some swatches of this polish where it looks much more lighter blue, but at least mine is more darker, just like it looks like here in the pics. But it really is sooo pretty, I wasn't at first sure if I should get this one but I'm really glad I did.


Day 4: Green - Milani Hi-Tech and Kleancolor Chunky Holo Clover

What a monster title, right? It day four of the challenge and time for some green nails. But before that I want to apologize for not posting for over a week. I was without internet connection and I didn't know that beforehand as I would have timed some posts.. So sorry about that, now I want to get on with the challenge and some other manis too. But let's see those green nails now, shall we.

Hope you aren't bored of layering yet, as I did some again. This is two coats of Milani Hi-Tech with two coats of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Clover on top. The Chunky holo isn't very visible over Hi-Tech, though in some angles or lighting you can see some chunky particles. I did enjoyed this combination nevertheless.
