Polka dots are one of my favorite nail art designs. I'm glad that they are part of 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. The mani is very simple but to make it more colorful I used three colors!
I Used: Sally Hansen Go Bananas, p2 Heavenly Girl and Essence Maursel

Summer is always dry season for TV show lovers. There is one thing I like about it, though. It is a good time to catch up with shows you don't have time to watch during the season or to start watching something new. There are also summer shows. Somehow general opinion of summer shows is that they are not good enough for regular September to May season so they run during summer. If we just take look at Braking Bad that statement goes into water. So let's look at the list. Before we look at new shows this summer let's look at those which are back with new episodes!

Recently I posted about I Love shower creams and now is time to tell you something about two more I Love... products that I own. I have I Love Raspberry & Blackberry body lotion and Vanilla & Almond body butter.
I Love...Raspberry & Blackberry body lotion is the one I'm using almost every day right now. It has beautiful fruity smell and it is moisturizing. The texture is really nice, not too dense nor too thin. It is easy to apply it and it soaks into skin really quickly even though it leaves white mark first minute or so and it looks like it will never soak in. My skin smells really good after I use this lotion but just like their shower creams the scent doesn't last very long time on the skin and that is the worst side of this product. On the other hand good part is like I said the smell itself, application and my favorite thing right now: practical packaging with the pump. After I use up this bottle ( witch contains 250 ml ) I doubt I will buy I Love body lotion again. The reason is because I have so many body lotions in my stash that wait to be used and there are so many different brands and scents I would love to try so this isn't so special that I "need" come back to it. Maybe if I find something that smells that good that I can't skip it.
I Love...Vanilla & Almond body butter is part of limited edition and I got it together with mini size shower cream. This body butter comes in a pot and contains 50 ml of product. I adore the smell, that alone would be a reason for me to buy this product again. Unlike body lotion, body butter has more benefits. The skin smells amazing, it lasts little bit longer and it is more nurturing to your skin. Another thing about it that I love is that it is shimmery. I prefer shimmery body products in summer so this is something I will reach for very often.
Did you tried I Love...products? What do you think about their body lotions and body butters?

Beside pink, the color I like to use on my lips the most is coral. Especially in spring and summer. Lately I've been really good with keeping myself away from buying any new lipstick or lipgloss but with NYX Peach Cobbler I couldn't resist. This is my first NYX Butter Gloss lipgloss and it probably won't be the last one. The texture of lipgloss is creamy and it applies very easy. The color is beautiful. If you apply it in one layer you will get the sheer look but if you apply two or three coats you will get nice opacity. Perfect summer color! It lasts for few hours on my lips after that I need to reapply it. Great thing about NYX Butter Gloss is that is isn't sticky, it feels good on your lips and it has beautiful glossy finish.

I'm back for a quick post to tell you that I'm on a little blogging pause. The reason for that is little girl who is new member of our family. Today she is exactly 2 weeks old. She is beautiful, healthy and in this short period of time she brought to us so much happiness.
I'm not sure when will I come back to regular posting but I do have some posts that are pre written so I will start with those and eventually I will start posting and writing more.
If you have any suggestions or questions fell free to write it down in comments.

I used: Essence I Love Brasil, Essence BBC Chasing Waves and H&M White
First part of 31DNAC - Colors is over and from now on I will do the Patterns part of the challenge!

For day 9 of 31 Day Nail Art Challenge the task was Rainbow! I never did a rainbow or sky manicure so this was fan mani to do for me. I used a lot colors but this is actually very easy to do. Rainbow could look a bit more neat but in the end I'm happy with the way it turned out.
First I painted all my nails blue and after it dried I drew the clouds. After everything was dried it was time for nail art brush and the rainbow.
I used : Maybelline Party Blue, Essence Ahoy, China Glaze Sun-Kissed, Essence Oh My Glitter!, Essence Off To Miami! and p2 Open Your Heart!
