Review: Impress nails

 Pred časom sem prejela tele čudovite imPress nohte. Ker pa so do sedaj moji nohti bili dolgi, ni bilo prilike za preizkus. Sedaj pa se mi je en zlomil in to sem izkoristila, da sem preizkusila tele nohte ;)
 A while ago I received this awesome imPress nails. But my nails were long at the time and I couldn't try them. but one of my nails broke and took it as a great opportunity to try this nails ;)

impress-nails-review

 Že sama embalaža mi je zelo všeč in se mi zdi zelo domiselna. Nohti namreč pridejo v plastičnem ovoju, ki spominja na stekleničko laka za nohte.
 The packaging itself is very unique. The nails come in a plactic packaging that looks like a nail polish bottle.
impress-nails-review

 Najprej sem mislila, da bom imela težave, ampak temu ni bilo tako. Nanos je izredno enostaven, saj poteka v treh korakih:
1.) Izbira ustrezne velikosti umetnih nohtov:
Za vsak noht izbereš ustrezno velikost, kar mi je pa posebej všeč je to, da so strani odlično označene - del, kjer prozorna plastika gleda izpod nohta, pride k obnohtni kožici. Brez skrbi, da bi jih narobe obrnila ;) Velikosti so različne in tudi meni, čeprav imam kar široke nohte, je uspelo najti pravo velikost za vsak noht.
2.)Očistiš nohte:
Očistiš svoje nohte s priloženo krpico za čiščenje, ki je priložena. Brez packanja, pretakanja, itd. Samo odpreš embalažo in potegneš po vsakem nohtu posebej.
3.) Nanos:
En noht naenkrat ;) Na umetnem nohtu odstraniš zaščitno folijo, nastaviš na svoj noht - priporočam, da najprej pogledaš, da ni poševno nastavljen - in ko si zadovoljna s postavitvijo... močno pritisneš.
In to je to. Nič lepil, nič packanja,... Čisto enostavno.
impress-nails-review

 At first I thought I will have problems, but luckily this wasn't the case. Application is extremely easy, you apply the in three steps:
1.) Choose the proper size:
For each of your nails you choose the proper size of the fake ones, without worries you might get them wrong - the size that is supposed to be at the cuticle is clearly marked with a see-trough plastic, that you removed before you apply them. The sizes are different and were a good fit even for me with my wide nails.
2.) Clean your nails:
You clean your nails with a cleaning pad which you receive with the nails. No mess, cotton pads, liquids, etc. You just open the package and clean your nails.
3.) Application:
One nail at a time ;) For each nail you first remove the transparent plastic, that protects the glue. Then you put it on your nail - I suggest you first check if the nail is straight and not wonky - and then press hard.
And that's it. No glue, no mess,... Extremely easy.

impress-nails-review

 Tudi odstranjevanje je enostavno - na robu dvigneš umetni noht in z palčko, namočeno v aceton enostavno razstopiš lepilo.
 Removing them is also easy - you lift the fake nail at the edge and with a cotton swap soaked in aceton remove the glue.

impress-nails-review

 Impress umetni nohti izgledajo zelo naravno, so čudovite oblike, jaz sem navdušena! Moji so zgolj rdeče barve, ampak izbira v trgovini je ogromna. Razno razne poslikave, za vsakega nekaj.
 ImPRESS nails look really natural, the shape is great, I am impressed (pun intended)! Mine were just red, but the selection in stores is huge! Different nail art, something for everyone.
impress-nails-review

 Še en plus, vzdržljivost. Meni do zdaj držijo 6 dni, bomo videli, kako dolgo bojo ;)
 Another plus, duration. I have them on for 6 days now and I am really curious to see how long they'll last ;)
impress-nails-review

 Jaz jih res priporočam vsaki, ki bi si za kakšno posebno priložnost želela lepih nohtov, pa ni navdušena nad geli in podobnim, ali pa bi si rada malo popestrila svoje nohte.
 I really recommend them to anone who wants to have beautiful nails, and doesn't like gels and stuff, or you just want to have a little something extra on your nails.
impress-nails-review

Ste že preizkusile imPRESS nohte? Kako se vam zdijo? Ste za ali proti?
Have you tried imPRESS nails? What do you think about them? Yay or nay?

Alverde Rockabella Red


 Pred kratkim sem v DM-u zagledala Alverde omejeno kolekcijo "Fabulous Fifties", ki me je s svojo luškano embalažo takoj pritegnila. Ker pa sem bila takrat v gužvi, nisem uspela vzeti ničesar. Naslednjič, ko sem naletela na stojalo, pa je bilo že kar prazno, ampak tale šminka je čakala name ;)
 Recently I saw in DM Alverde limited edition, called "Fabulous Fifties". It draw my attention  right away, but unfortunatelly I didn't have time to see if it's worth taking or not. The next time I saw it, there weren't many things left, but this lipstick was waiting for me ;)

alverde-lipstick-fabulous-fifties-rockabella-red-swatch-picture

 Začnimo pri embalaži - PIKICE! Mene so takoj kupili s tole poslikavo ;) Drugače je embalaža na navoj, kot vsaka druga šminka.
 Let's start with the packaging - DOTS! I was instantly intrigued by this ;) Othervise it screws as any other lipstick.

Barva - je unikatna v moji zbirki, pa imam kar nekaj šmink. Je rdeča z oranžnim podtonom - potegne na oranžno. Je svetleča, vendar brez bleščic.
 The colour - it's unique in my collection, and I have a bunch of lipsticks. It's red with an orange undertone - it looks more orange on me. It shines, but doesn't contain shimmer.

 Nanos je čudovit. Brez problemov, dovolj je le en nanos, šminka je mehka in mazljiva.
 Application is wondefull. No problems, one coat is enough, the lipstick is soft and easy to apply.

 Tole je moja prva Alverde šminka, in želim si še kakšno ;) Kaj pravite, je še katera vredna nakupa? This is my first Alverde lipstick and I want more ;) What do you say, is any other worth buying?

BornPrettyStore Nail Wraps MZ1966


 Danes vam predstavljam še zadnjo izmed dobrot, ki sem jih prejela s spletne strani bornprettystore.com - nalepke za celoten noht. 
 Today I will show you the last item I received from bornprettystore.com - full nail stickers.

 Izbrala sem si nalepke, ki nosijo "ime" MZ1966, najdete pa jih tukaj. Z veseljem poročam, da so me navdušile in da imam nagledanih še par drugih vzorcev. Nanos je super enostaven, so (zame) ravno prav široke in kar je sploh super - primerne so tudi za dolge nohte. Ker imam sama trenutno kratke nohte sem uporabila zgolj polovičko vsake nalepke. Torej, nanos - izbereš željeno velikost, pritisneš na noht in odpiliš ostanek. To je to. Po želji zaščitiš z nadlakom in super lepi nohti so tu. Sama si imam namen naročiti še par, za kakšno posebno priložnost, ko ne bo časa lakirati nohtov.
 I choose nail wraps with a "name" MZ1966, that you can find here. I am happy to report I was impressed and I already have a few other patterns on my wishlist. Application is super easy and for me they are just the right width. What's great is they are also suitable for long nails. Mine are short at the moment and I used about half of each sticker. So, application - you choose the desired size, you put it on the nail and press it down, then file down the excess. That's it. If you wish you can put a coat of top coat above it and you have really pretty nails. I want to order a few more, for special occasions when there will be no time to do my nails.



 Prejela sem tudi promocijsko kodo za svoje bralke, če jo uporabite, dobite 10% popusta pri nakupu na spletni strani bornprettystore - pošiljajo vsepodovsod in to zastonj!!
I also received a promo code for my lovely readers, you can use it to get 10% off of your order at bornprettystore - they also ship worldwide for free!!

Review: Essence Fun Fair LE Blush and Cotton Candy

Pred kratkim se je v mojem poštnem nabiralniku znašlo tole:
Recently I found this in my mail box:
essence-fun-fair-limited-edition-blush-01-ring-around-the-rosy-cotton-candy

Od podjetja Essence sem prejela dva izdelka iz omejene kolekcije Fun Fair v oceno (preview tule).
I received two products from Essence from Fun Fair limited edition to review (preview here).
essence-fun-fair-limited-edition-blush-01-ring-around-the-rosy-cotton-candy

Dobila sem rdečilo za lica v odtenku 01 Ring around the rosy in dekoracijo za nohte Cotton Candy v odtenku 02 Sugar for my honey.
I got blush in 01 Ring Around the Rosy and Cotton Candy in 02 Sugar For My Honey.

Rdečilo za lica/Blush:
essence-fun-fair-limited-edition-blush-01-ring-around-the-rosy
Tole me je totalno navdušilo! Čeprav embalaža ni meni najljubša(prozorna, izgleda lahka za zlomit, ampak se težko odpre =P), to rdečilo odtehta.
This one really blew me away! The packaging isn't one of my favourited(it's a see trough plastic and it looks easy to break, but opens with a lot of effort =P), the blush itself makes up for it.

Odtenek je rožnast, brez bleščic, se pa sveti na koži - meni izgleda,kot da bi bil rdečilo in osvetljevalec v enem. Na koži pusti videz naravne zardelosti, in izgleda res čudovit. 
The colour is pink, withouth shimmer, but it glows on my skin - to me it looks as if the blush would also contain highlighter. It leaves my skin looking naturally blush and it really looks wonderful!
essence-fun-fair-limited-edition-blush-01-ring-around-the-rosy

Je super pigmentiran in se z lahkoto nanaša. Z lahkoto se ga da tudi zabrisat. Kar vidite na slikah, je en sloj =)
It is super pigmented and it applies easily. It is also easy to blend. What you see on the pictures, is just one coat ;)
essence-fun-fair-limited-edition-blush-01-ring-around-the-rosy

Cotton Candy:

Ko sem videla tole, sem se kar malo ustrašila, saj še nikoli nisem preizkusila tega ali česa podobnega. Ampak na koncu mi je videz res všeč. 
Vem I saw this I actually got a bit scared, since I've never tried anything like this before. But in the end I really liked the result.

Prahec je svetlo modre barve s turkiznimi bleščicami, ki dajo manikuri tisto piko na i.
The dust is light blue with teal shimmer, that gives it that extra something.

Embalaža tega prahu je super praktična - na vrhu ima majhno odprtino, ko omogoča lažji nanos in preprečuje preveliko izsipavanje.
The packaging is super practitcal  - it has a small opening on the top, that allows easy application and prevents it to fall out too much.
essence-fun-fair-limited-edition-cotton-candy-02-sugar-for-my-honey-swatch

Navodila za uporabo/Application instruction:
Preprosto posipaj prah po sveže nalakiranih ter še vedno mokrih nohtih, počakaj da se vse skupaj posuši – končano! 
Simply sprinkle the nail powder in rosé-pink or mint on top of freshly applied nail polish that’s still wet, allow to dry and you’re done!
Sama sem uporabila lak Esence Fall For Me iz stare MultiDimension linije kot bazo. Nanesla sem prvi sloj, počakala, da se posuši in nato na vsak noht posebej nanesla najprej lak za nohte takoj za tem pa Cotton Candy dekoracijo. Nanos je bil zaradi embalaže res enostaven in tudi prevelike packarije ni bilo - na slikah lahko vidite, koliko je šlo mimo nohta. Priporočam vam, da to manikure naredite nad listom papirja, saj nekaj gre mimo in z listom lahko to enostavno vrnete nazaj v embalažo ;)
I used Essence Fall For Me from the old MultiDimension line as a base. I put on the first coat, waited for it to dry, and then I did one nail at a time - first the nail polish and right after the Cotton Candy Nails decoration. The application was really easy thanks to the packaging and there wasn't a lot of a mess - you can see it on the pictures. I suggest you do this mani over a piece of paper - there is a small amount of dust going around and you can easily put it back in the packaging with a paper.
essence-fun-fair-limited-edition-cotton-candy-02-sugar-for-my-honey-swatch

Končni efekt je super! Izgleda kot oblaček ;) Pred preizkusom sem bila mnenja, da bo to tako in tako takoj odpadlo, in ne bi se mogla bolj motit - zadeva je zacementirna na nohtih!
The end result is great! It looks like a cloud ;) Before I tried I though this will fall off right away and I couldn't be more wrong - it stayed put!
essence-fun-fair-limited-edition-cotton-candy-02-sugar-for-my-honey-swatch

Zelo sem zadovoljna z obema prejetima izdelkoma in vem, da si bom kupila vsaj še drugo rdečilo za lica, pa verjetno še par drugih stvari(recimo puder v kroglicah).
I am very happy with both products received and I know I will buy myself at least the other blush, and I think a few of the other stuff too(such as the shimmer pearls).

Kaj pa ve pravite? Sta vam ta dva izdelka všeč? Kaj pa celotna kolekcija?What do you think? Do you like the two products? What about the entire limited edition?

Xoxo, Nyx
