Kinetics French Lilac Nail Polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei/ £3.60 for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz) is a soft cool toned greyish lilac with blue undertones. This nude light lilac looks great on every nails size and skin tone. I believe I could have got away with only one coat as the color looks almost opaque but I just wanted to apply the second coat for a full opacity. It dries down in a beautiful intense glossy finish but you can also apply a thin layer of your favorite top coat to make this color last longer. Continue Reading

RMK Refreshing Gel for Summer 2014

Hello beauties!

Here is a first look of what you can expect from RMK this summer regarding skincare. The new RMK Refreshing Gel will be released in the middle of summer and it’s a new moisturizing gel that will cool down your skin during those hot days. So far this product sounds lovely as I’m thinking of those hot days when the temperatures rises to over 40 degrees and my combination and sensitive skin would love a refreshing and cooling skincare product.

Kinetics Pistachio Sorbet Nail Polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei/ £3.60 for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz) is a light neon pistachio green shade with a soft matte finish. Truly a vivid and joyful color this is definitely for those who are not color shy and dare to wear a more unusual nail polish on their nails. It looks fully opaque in two coats but in one coat it leaves an uneven and streaky looking color behind. Continue Reading
