Essence: The Gel Nail Polish review



We can find lots of nail polishes with gel formula on the market and they are very popular this days. This kind of nail polishes don't need an UV light, they just dry with this very glossy finish.

A few days ago, Essence released 46 new nail polishes with the gel formula (some of the shades are new and some are old). The collection is called The Gel nail polish and there is no need to own an UV light.

When I first heard about this collection, I was very excited. I am using gelish manicure all the time. The fact, that you don't need UV light for polishes from Essence just thrilled me. The first day that I found out that the collection has been released in Slovenia, I went to the store. I was a lucky girl because there they were, all shades on two (!) stands. I picked out four shades (I would buy them more, but I was in a hurry). I've tried out just two of them and I'm really impressed.





The pigmentation of this nail polishes is just great (but on the other hand I picked up the strong colours because I like them more). I have tried out Don't Be Shy (lime-green colour) and Electriiiiiic (blue colour). The both nail polishes have a great pigmentation. As for applying, they both apply easy, but for me, the Electriiiiiic was better. The Don't Be Sky polish is a little more thicker and I just needed to put a little extra effort in it. But over all, I like both polishes. Both of them dried quite quickly, and here I need to say, that I used thick coats.

I applied the Electriiiiiic five days ago and it was ''untouched'' till today (I took it off to try the Don't Be Shy polish). So for duration I can say that they last quite long (one week for sure!). I don't know how it goes with washing dishes and stuff like that because we all know that water isn't the best friend of polishes.


 




I really like this polishes and I'm happy that they give me the same, really glossy finish as my gelish does. I still need to try out the two polishes that I have at home (Prince Charming - the shimmery one and Let's Get Lost) and I need to buy a lost of other shades that I like.




Have you tried any of this polishes out? What do you think?

My passion: Synthetic dreadlocks

I have really thick hair and uncontrollable curls. I have had long hair for all my life. Ok, I experimented with a little bit shorter hairstyle but I quickly find out that I look like a poodle. I also need to say, that I didn't dye my hair. I mean like NEVER in my life and I don't intend to do it any day soon. I love my hair and I don't want to damage them.

With years I got bored with my almost the same haircut all the time. I've started to look around what can I do and came across this synthetic dreadlocks that you just braid in your hair and get them out whenever you feel like it.

My first synthetic dreadlocks were made in a hair salon. At first I got just three, on the one side of my head. In a month time, I went back for three more on the other side. When I got bored with them, I simply took them out. Soon, I wanted more, but they were quite expensive, so I decided to try to make them on my own! I bought synthetic hair on the internet, I had an old hair straightener at home... I was good to go!





I actually did a pretty good job. I did 35 double ended dreadlocks. And my fiancé braided them in. Then I realise that so many dreads is just too much. My head was heavy and washing those dreads was a pain in the... I wore them for three weeks (I think) and then took them out.





The next ones were in purple-pink colour. I wore those for about three months. I braided them in my hair a few days before I went to Prague.





I this are my last dreads. Four plain black single ended dreads. I wanted to make red dreads but I need to order the hair. But on the other hand, I was always wondering what would I look like with black locks of hair. And I made just four of them, so my head won't be heavy.





This synthetic dreadlocks are one of my biggest passion and I enjoy doing them. We will see what will the next ones look like.

New in: cloths & makeup

Hello beauties!

In the past few days, I was spending my money like crazy. I even don't know what got in to me. The majority of my money I spent in Pull & Bear. I must confess, at first I didn't like this store but when my friend started working there, everything changed. She knows me well and she always thinks of my stile and size. So she just tells me what would I like and most of the thing I buy then. It is awesome to have ''personal shopping assistant''.

So let me show you my new stuff...

From Pull & Bear...

First are this two shirts. The white one has a printed picture of bicycle and flowers on it. I find it really romantic and it will be perfect for my vacation in Amsterdam in July. The second shirt is just a plain black shirt with wine-red dots. I'm a huge fan of dost and the colours are just perfect for me.





I also bought this trousers that are from really light and very breathable material. They will be perfect for not so warm summer days or at the evenings when I will go on a walk with my dogs or just for coffee with friends.





And the last are this platform sandals that I have been looking at for quite some time. At the end, I decided just to try them on (I was going to wait for the summer sales because the shoes were 50€ and at that point I didn't have that money), but my future mother in law decided to buy them for me and I'm really grateful for this gesture. I just can't wait that the weather will be warm enough!




From Zara...

I really like long dresses and when I saw this dress, I just melted. I know that it isn't in my typical stile but I really find it very comfortable and romantic. I just can't wait to put it on my self! 






Makeup...

Surprisingly, I didn't buy much makeup. I treated my self with Revlon Colorstay foundation (I still can't decide if I like it or not!) and eyebrow set from Catrice. As you know I am a big fan of gelish nails so naturally, I needed to buy this new Essence gel nail polish (of course, I also bought base and top coat). An for the cherry on the top, I bought a Maybelline Colorama All Access NY top coat (top coat No. 425).




Last but not least...

Here are my new All Stars! This is one of my favourite piece that I bought. It was a late birthday gift from my self. I was looking at these babies for almost two years and on Saturday, I decided to go and buy them because they anyway won't be on sale never in the future. I don't regret spending 80€ for them. They are this darker green colour and they look a little bit out worn.
