I love dark matte nails! I know it’s spring and people are actually using more pastel and neon nailpolishes but I still stick to my dark ones. On his photo I am wearing Rimmel 60 seconds nailpolish in ‘Deliciously dark’ and Matte Finish topcoat also from Rimmel.

Image

Yep, matte again. Same products as on the previous photo, plus Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength nailpolish in ‘Wedding crasher’ on my ring finger.

Image

‘My private jet’ from OPI is so unique. It’s very dark, but still it’s not plain black.

Hi dolls,

You know how obsessed I am with nailpolish and nail art, and so it has been such a challenge for me to pick just 3 nailpolishes that I really really do love.

Okay, let’s jump right into it. My #1 favourite is Complete Salon Manicure by Sally Hansen in color ‘Pat on the black 660’. I own different nailpolishes by Sally Hansen, but I feel like Xtreme wear and Diamond Strength don’t dry too fast and start chipping too soon.

Image

The color is gorgeous. Apply one coat and you get a beautiful creamy purple/burgundy, apply two, and it’s almost black. It’s opaque, not sheer at all, dries VERY fast. The brush is amazing too, and it stays on for good 5-7 days.

My #2 is 60 Seconds by Rimmel in ‘320 Rapid Ruby’. It’s formula and flat brush is very similar to the Sally Hansen’s one, but it starts to chip in 4-6 days after application. But because the price is so good I don’t mind reapplying πŸ˜‰

Image

As you can see, no matter it’s spring, I stick to my darks, burgundy and red))))

But this color is sooooo beautiful in person, it’s darker, almost burgundy.

The third place goes to P2 Silk Ridgefiller. I love this stuff. I got it as a gift from a friend, who lives in Germany. It doesn’t have any color, but it leaves my nails looking so naturally beautiful and polished. The finish is almost matte.

Image

It dries fast, and I love how it feels on my nails. Also, I know that some people use it as a base coat, but for me it doesn’t work like that. It literally takes 100 years to dry after I apply a second coat of nailpolish.

And now, the Nailpolish Disappointment. It’s weird because overall, I like Maybelline makeup and nailpolishes, but this one was just horrible quality!!!

Image

I was looking for a simple white nailpolish for a couple of weeks now – white nails are huuuuge for spring. I was so excited to try it out, because it looked perfect in the bottle. However, it turned out to be hideous! The color is soooooooooooo sheer, you have to apply at least 3-4 coats for it to look alright. It also dries incredibly slowly. So yeah, very upset with it. If you guys know where I can get a good opaque white nailpolish, please tell me πŸ™‚

Hope you enjoyed,

Hugs&kissed

Hi,

I literally just opened my last package from Asos. I instagramed the pictures of what I ordered, and thought it would be great to share with you guys πŸ™‚

I didn’t get much, just a couple of items:

Image

How cute is this little ring πŸ™‚ I love it! It has little crystals and two gold-tone spikes. Also it’s not a single ring, it’s a set of two small rings, that you can wear separately, or together. I got this ring on sale for only $7!

If you are wondering about my nails, they re short again and I don’t know whether to be happy or sad about it… Anyways, they’ll grow back again soon. And yes, I have a new nailpolish from Sally Hansen Salon Manicure. This beautiful dark burgundy/purple, almost black color, is called ‘Pat on the Black 660’. I think it’s very similar to Essie’s ‘Wicked’. What do you guys think?

Image

Okay, let me just say that I NEVER buy the same things in different colors, except for basic tees (you can’t have too many of those, right), but the moment I saw these beauties, I knew I was going to get more than one pair! Asos offers them in green, champagne, white, coral, blue (remind me a lot of Anna Dello Russo’s collection for H&M) and clear ones. And they are all gorgeus!!!! As you can see I got them in green and champagne, because I think the green ones will accentuate my green eyes, and the champagne wil look cute on anyone with warm skin tone. I must say that white, coral and blue ones will look fabulous on girls with deeper skintones. As for the earings with clear stones, they are not exactly clear, as they have blue, green and pink undertones to them. Very pretty!

As always the quality and design of Asos jewellery is amazing! I got each pair for $14.

Also, I wanted to inform you guys that Asos has a new promo code. 25% off discount for 48 hours. Just enter code HAPPYJAN at checkout. Isn’t that great! πŸ™‚

Hope you guys enjoy the promo code πŸ˜‰

Hello everyone,

First of all I wanted to remind you guys that the giveaway is closing up on January 25th, so hurry if you want to enter. You still have a chance to win!!! The rules are easy – follow me on Instagram, follow, comment and like this blog.

So the winner is going to get some of my all-time favourite beauty products:

Image

The winner gets bronzer, blush, mascara, lipstick in peachy-pink color, brow gel – all from Vivienne Sabo, which is an amazing French makeup brand. Also eyeshadow and highlighter/eyeshadow from Sephora and Rimmel’s Kate lipstick in nude color.

On weekend I am going to announce the lucky winner. And the giveaway is international btw

Also I wanted to mention, that one of the reasons I haven’t posted for a while is because I’ve been pretty busy with my photoshoot. I was not only a model, but I also did my hair and makeup, which I am super excited about:)

So yesterday the photographer contacted me saying the first photo was ready!

Image

I was a bit nervous because it was my first real photoshoot, but it all turned out to be so much fun!!!

The makeup I used: Rimmel’s Stay Matte foundation, Maybelline Affinitone concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, for my brows I used color ‘Tease’ from Urban Decay’s Naked2 palette, Vivienne Sabo’s Coup De Genie Eyebrow pencil in 001 to create a perfect arch and Fixateur Eyebrow gel also from Vivienne Sabo.

For my eyes I used: ‘Bootycall’ from Naked2 palette on my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes, as well as a little bit of ‘Verve’. On my lids I put ‘YDK’ and ‘Snakebite’. I usually use more of ‘Half Baked’ and ‘Chopper’, but this time I wanted a more drammatic look, so I used darker shades. For my outer corner of the eye I used ‘Busted’, which is a gorgeous shimmery dark brown color. For my crease I used a beautiful burgundy-ish color (if you can say that, it’s a shimmery mixture of burgundy, purple and brown) from Vivienne Sabo’s eyeshadow quad in 66. Instead of an eyeliner I used ‘Blackout’ from Naked2.

On my lower lash line I applied Maybelline’s Master Smoky shadow-pencil in ‘Smoky Chocolate’ and a little bit of ‘Busted’ on top of that. For my waterline I used a cheap 1$ white pencil, you can basically use any one you like, mine is from Golden Rose. I don’t use white pencils too much, but because I didn’t manage to get a good sleep before the photoshoot, I had to apply it. As for the mascara, I used, ‘Diva’s Lashes’ from Pupa.

Next step – bronzer. I used ‘Voyage en Provance’ from Vivienne Sabo (the same one I got for the giveaway). It’s not too shimmery, not orange at all. It makes my skin really soft and smells amazing. Then goes blush, mine also from Vivienne Sabo ‘Teinte Delicate’ in 12 (the winner gets one too).

Also a highlighter for the inner corners of my eyes, cupid’s bow and cheek bones. I used ‘Mineralize Skinfinish’ in soft and gentle from Mac. And to set my makeup I used Urban Decay’s De Slick setting spray because my skin is oily. But if you have dry to normal skin, you probably can skip that part.

Okay, for my lips I used a cheap nude pink pencil from Flormar, my favourite lipstick ever ‘Charme de Vous’ in 112 from Vivienne Sabo (the lucky winner gets it too) and on top of that I used the best lipgloss ever ‘Precious Pink Jewels’ from Sephora. It makes my lipstick last for good 3-4 hours, is not sticky at all! Very lightweight on my lips, smells great and has a perfect applicator.

That’s it for my makeup πŸ™‚ I know, it might sound complicated, but it isn’t. It took me around 35 minutes to do it.

For my hair I used my curling wand from Babyliss. I love it so much!

On my nails I got ‘Xtreme Wear’ nailpolish in ‘Black Out’ from Sally Hansen.

For my outfit (the part of it you can see on the photo), I am wearing a basic black tee from Zara, black leather jacket from Religion, my earrings are no-name, they are from a local store, my watch is from Paul’s Boutique (love it to death))) and my both bracelets are from Asos.

Hope u guys like it πŸ™‚

I haven’t been posting for a while, but I’ve been really busy lately. Something important and exciting is happening for me in February:) Sorry I can’t tell yet, but I promise it’ll give me a chance to do more interesting posts and giveaways, which is always a good thing, right?)

Ok, look what I bought

Image

This blush is a perfection! Honestly, the colors are gorgeous, the texture is so nice and makes my skin so soft. And it doesn’t break me out, although many blushes did, so I think this Vivienne Sabo blush is also suitable for sensitive skin. As you might have already guessed, I got this for my giveaway. So make sure you enter! (you need to follow me on instagram, follow, comment and like my blog)

Image

These are the products I got for the giveaway right now, but I am going to add new items!

My last week has been pretty stressfull with sending documents and stuff, so I needed to buy some nailpolish. You guys know, how much I am obsessed with black nail polish (for 10 years already), so I needed to get a new one. Unfortunately, they didn’t have my favourite Rimmel’s ‘black out’, so I got this stuff:

Image

I think black nail polish is very versatile and sexy. I love it. But this dark red color is one of my favourites now too. It’s the perfect red for me – not too bright.

Image

I also got a softening foot cream by Beauty Formulas and a nail polish remover from German drugstore brand Isana. Very satisfied with the quality and the price of these.

Image

The last product, I’d like to tell you about, is my lipgloss from Vivienne Sabo. I’ve been having it for 2 weeks now, I guess. I was really excited when I saw that VS had a new lipgloss line, so I grabbed this instantly. I am also buying one of these lipglosses for this giveaway.

Image

It’s the perfect nude color with some subtle shimmer in it, it has non-sticky formula and smells really good.

Image

The brush is amazing too. Overall I am very satisfied with this lip product. Hope the winner of my giveaway likes it too πŸ˜‰

I seriously can not believe it’s winter already, which means I am doing my November Favourites post. I just hope it’s not my last post (with December 21st coming)))))

Anyways, these are the things I’ve been loving through November. And being a coffee addict, I am now only drinking hot beverages, coz it’s pretty chilli outside. I love anything that has caramel in it. In fact, if I was born food, I would probably be caramel:) Hehe, now I am being weird))))

Okay, speaking about my favourites, that are not for eating or drinking purposes (rather becoming beautiful purpose), I’ve been raving about how amazingly Naked2 palette works with my new ‘Diva’s Lashes’ mascara by Pupa. While the eyeshadows define my eyes, the mascara makes my lashes not only crazy long, but extremely fluffy too. Love!

For my highlighter (and eyeshadow) I’ve been loving Sephora’s Urban Luxe Powder, which is a great multi-functional product. It’s on sale now, so hurry up, if you’d like to get it. It’s such a good product for only $7.

Since it’s been cold and windy for a while now, I’ve been protecting my lips from being chapped. And for that I am loving Neutrogena’s Intense Repair Lip Balm and Urban Decay’s Lip Junkie lip gloss. The UD lip gloss is very sheer and the way it smells ans tastes… yummi)

And obviously, since I’ve been crazy happy with my new Sally Hansen nail polish, I couldn’t have mentioned it in this post! It’s in color 05 Bejeweled and it’s one of the prettiest nail polishes, I have ever owned. Very glittery and it just reminds me of winter holidays and candy:)

My last three favourites are my gorgeous new Paul’s Boutique bag, that has dollar, diamond and crown print on it, chunky gold watch also from UK high-street brand Paul’s boutique, and studded booties from River Island. I got the booties in the end of November, but I fell in love with them immediately – they are cute, comfy and edgy.

These are pretty much my November Favourites.

Hugs&kisses

Image

First of all, let me just say that this nail polish from Sally Hansen is wicked!!! I’ve been into glittery nail polishes for a while now, but this one is so unique to me.

Image

Speaking about my purchases, this bag is something I’ve wanted for a while. I have a decent collection of Paul’s Boutique handbags, but this Molly bag is GORGEOUS. It’s exclusive to Asos, so that’s where I got it from. It’s perfect size, made of great quality faux leather and has gold detailing, which I love. But what you notice straight off after laying your eyes on the bag is this crazy charm.

Image

It looks fabulous without the charm too. I don’t understand why some people say, this London-based brand is tacky. It’s quite edgy and bold, but I am sure there are people, who can pull it off.

Image

Okay this Master Smoky shadow-pencil from Maybelline is great! It’s cheap but the quality is amazing. I have very sensitive eyes and eyelids, but this one works perfectly for me. I think with my skin and hair color, brown eye pencils look better on me, than black ones, so I got this in color ‘Smoky Chocolate’.

Image

So this product can be used as a pencial and as an eyeshadow. Just draw a thick line and smudge it out to create an eyeshadow effect.

Image

Image

U guys probably know, how much I adore Watson’s and their exclusive products. Vivienne Sabo is a makeup brand that u can only purchase at ur local Watson’s, as far as I know. VS is such an amazing brand, that offers stunning products for VERY afforfable prices. I love their lipsticks, blushes, eyeshadows, etc. So the last Sunday when I went to Watson’s I got two eyeliners from Vivienne Sabo in ‘Chocolat’ (I love brown, remember)) and ‘Carbon’ (every girl needs a black eyeliner). And guess what? I got a gorgeous Vivienne Sabo powder as a gift. It’s silky and smells good. It actually reminds me a lot of my Dolce&Gabbana powder, but hey it’s so much more affordable!!!! πŸ™‚

Image

Image

Luckily, I was allowed to pick the color, so I got the darkest one, which is pretty light anyway. I mean the bad thing about Vivienne Sabo is that they have really light, even pinky colors in terms of their foundations, concealers and powders. I have no idea how this fact can be explained, maybe it’s becuse the brand is French and French women have mostly fair skin…

Image

The packaging is sleek and pretty.

Image

Here come my new booties from one of my favourite UK brands River Island. I got them for half the price and I am pretty happy with them. I love how soft the leather is, the studs and buckles.

Image

See? Told you there were cuties=)

Speaking about the sad part, i have no idea, where is my previous River Island order. It’s been almost 20 days, since I placed it. I’ve been contacting RI customer care team, but no one is replying, which is upsetting. I hope my jeans have not been lost 😦

Image

Image

Do you understand why I am so sad now?)

And look who I’ve seen wearingΒ  graffity print RI jeggings:

Yeap, it’s British singer Cher Lloyd.

So yeah, I am very upset that my parcel isn’t coming. And when I’m upset I get…

Nutella is the best therapist, everyone knows that)

Let’s just hope I get my jeans soon! fingers crossed:)
