Nicole by OPI Gumdrops Collection

Hello beauties!

Have you seen how cute is the Gumdrops Collection Nicole by OPI? It has been available for quite some time now but I got to test some of the shades only last month. Nicole by OPI has become available in my country only last year so even though I’ve been posting about its beautiful nail colors for years I got to see them in person only a few months ago. This collection features 8 beautiful sparkling colors and since pink is one of them I had to test and wear on my nails for a couple of day. I will post my review shortly.

Introducing eight new limited edition matte texture shades designed to give nails a mouth-watering manicure. Gumdrops feature a “sugar-like” finish that lightly shimmers with fine glitter particles for a brilliant candy colored finish.

Senna Summer 2013 Sunglow Collection – Preview, Photos & Swatches

Hello beauties!

I’m really excited to share with you my first impression and swatches of Senna Summer 2013 Sunglow Collection. Back in June when I first announced this collection I was very anxious to test some of these products so if you are looking for the official info and color story please check my previous post.

The collection is divided into two looks: Bronzelite for those who want a sunkissed makeup but still natural and fresh and Emerald Isle a bold makeup look with lips painted in fiery colors and sparkling emerald shade for the yes.

As a girl with a light skin tone I’m more attracted towards the products from Senna Bronzelite look as I find them more suitable for my skin color but I would still borrow the Emerald eyeshadow and Ultra Black eyeliner from Emerald Isle look.

Kinetics SS 2013 Crazy Daizy Collection – Round-Up Review & Swatches

Hello beauties!

Now that I’ve reviewed all the 12 new nail polishes from Kinetics Spring Summer 2013 Crazy Daizy Collection it’s time for a Round-Up Review post. This collection was released in early spring in some countries while in others it became available closer to summer time. The colors are suitable for spring and summer if you like sweet pastels or bright and pigmented colors on your nails but some of these shades which are darker, pigmented and fully opaque right from the first coat also contain fine shimmer which make them perfect fall or winter shades.

Without any false modesty I can tell you most of these nail lacquers have an incredible formula which makes them long lasting and chip resistant even without the help of a top coat. The colors are rich, pigmented and they don’t fade after a few days like other do, they will also keep its luscious finish and brilliant shimmer reflexes while they last beautifully on the nails up to 7 days.  I did encountered one or two polishes with a more difficult formula but none of them chipped, I just had to put in more time and effort to get the full opacity.
