Haunted house manicure

Halloween is tomorrow and this is my manicure! First I wanted to draw something myself but then I found some cool nail stickers and I decided to go with them! It is nothing special but I like it anyway :)

What I used:
Essence Orange Sunset and Grand-Pile In Black and Look by Bipa nail stickers

I couldn't decide which nail stickers to buy so I bought them all :) I honestly don't have any self control when it comes to this...but they look so cool, wright? I wanted to make more nail designs with them but Halloween is tomorrow and with all this I'm ready for next year hehe... I have to say hat I really love Look by Bipa nail stickers, they always have some cool designs even though the quality could be little bit better!

When I bought them I had to try it immediately...I already had on my nails Orange Sunset (perfect Halloween color!!) and I just added few stickers...I don't like how it looked in the end but that doesn't matter now ;) here it is...

Scarlett Johansson makeup

Scarlett Johansson is one of the most popular actress in Hollywood, she is know about her great acting skills and great movies and she is also know about her elegant style and perfect makeup. I've noticed that Scarlett Johansson's makeup is very, very popular among my readers and I decided to dedicate a post to it. 
Scarlett's skin always has that beautiful glow, while her eyes usually look very natural. On her eyes Scarlett often has just eyeliner and mascara and when there is eyeshadow there are usually natural colors. Scarlett has beautiful lips and I love the most when she is wearing red lipstick, it looks perfect on her pale skin. Other then red most of the time Scarlett is wearing neutral colors for her lips. What I like about Scarlett Jonansson's makeup is that is always so simple and yet so effective. When you look at her you can see old Hollywood glamour.

Swatch: OPI Excuse Moi!

Believe it or not Excuse Moi! is my first ever OPI nail polish. The reason for that is that I have just recently started to order beauty products online. I can buy OPI in my local drugstores but they are too expensive for me, I can find much better price online.  So as soon as I started with online buying I had to order at least one OPI nail polish. I have already told you how much I love glitter nail polishes so that had to be my first pick from OPI. I decided to purchase nail polish from OPI Muppets collection. When I first saw pictures of Muppets collection I was amazed with so may beautiful glitter nail polishes...after looking at many pictures and swatches all over the internet I find my favorite: Excuse Moi! I was surprised when it came in my mail today because it took only 3 working days for it to arrive from USA to Croatia, which is really quick!

Excuse Moi! is pink base nail polish with pink and silver glitter, it also has larger glitter which is multicolored. You can see the color very well on the pictures. It is really unusual, I don't have anything like it. 2 coats were enough for full coverage! I am very happy about that because I didn't wanted layering polish, I wanted the polish I can use alone. That was exactly what I got :) Another thing that I like is that it dries very quickly!

Essence Chuck & Troy Break Through

Essence Nail art twins Troy is my favorite Twin topper, I love purple color and combination of purple with blue and gold glitter is perfect match for me! I wanted to do what I usually do when I want to wear Troy. I wanted to apply Essence Break Through which is I think exact purple shade as Troy's twin Gabrielle, but then I also wanted to see how will Troy look over blue base. I figured that Essence Chuck would be perfect for that. I couldn't decide which combination will I do first but then...why not try it together? So, I painted all my nails with Essence Break Through except my ring finger which I painted with Essence Chuck. In the end I added glitter topper Troy. I think that it looks great, I love how Chuck and Troy together. Blue base looks even better then purple, I will probably wear it more this way :))

New Essence stampy set

I was looking at new Essence products and I noticed that there is new stamping set. I didn't even know that there should be a new one. I tried to find number and name of  this stampy set but I can't find it anywhere on the box, if you know something I don't please let me know :)
So there are nine new designs and I can't wait to try them on my nails. It has been so long since I used any image plate. I stamped all the images on piece of paper to see how all design really look. I used black nail polish and I'm very happy with the results.

Quick TV show review: Hart of Dixie, 2 Broke girls, Pan Am, Secret circle and Ringer

This year there is so many new TV shows. I've seen bunch of pilots, some of them are quite good and some disappointed me...and there are few of them that are somewhere in between. Here is the first part of my TV review! I will be quick and don't worry there are no spoilers!!

Hart of Dixie

I want to start with Hart of Dixie. I had high expectations with this TV show. I've seen the promo few months ago and with the first look I just knew that this is something for me. Rachel Bilson has a lead role in this show and she is playing a doctor Zoe Hart. Zoe is a New Yorker and she is moving to Alabama where she starts to work in medical practice. This is the beginning of the show in one sentence. If you like drama shows this is TV show for you. I can say that I really enjoy watching it. The pilot was very good but maybe too many things is put in first episode, that is why the episodes which came after are even better then the pilot. Plot and characters are developing very well, with each episode everything is more interesting. When I watch Hart of Dixie I have smile on my face all the time. It is interesting, funny and sweet!

2 Broke girls

2 Broke girls is a sitcom, usually sitcoms are not kind of shows I will watch but one day few weeks ago there was nothing much to do and I was thinking to give it a shot...even if it is bad 20 minutes won't kill me. Now I'm so glad that I was bored that day because if it was different I would miss one hilarious TV show. The pilot is amazing, I laughed and laughed....the rest of episodes that came out are great as well. The show is about two girls Max and Caroline who work in a restaurant in Brooklyn and as you may guess both of them are broke. Max is from working class and Caroline is born rich but due to circumstances she is now broke and she needs a job. 
Everyone has a different sense of humor but I recommend this TV show to you. It is just 20 minutes and it is worth trying!

Pan Am

Pan Am is drama show about fly attendants and pilots of Pan Am during 1960's. I love this show it just has that  something that keeps you watching. There is great cast, interesting characters and the plot is getting better and better. Something I definitely recommend.

The secret circle

The secret circle is another teen supernatural series, but instead vampires and werewolfs this show is about witches. I can't say that it is spectacular but is pretty good and there is room for improvement. When I first heard about Secret circle and that it has connections with The vampire diaries ( both TV shows are based on books by L.J.Smith and cocreator/executive producer of Vampire diaries Kevin Williamson is producer of Secret circle)  I knew that I'm gonna watch it :) After first five episodes I can say that is good but I keep comparing it with Vampire diaries and because of that I'm hoping that it will be much better, because Vampire diaries wasn't anything special first few episodes. And then...BOOM :)  If you like SF, fantasy or Vampire diaries give it a go!


Now this is the show which I'm not sure how I feel about it. First of all I have to say that if Sarah Michelle Geller isn't part of the cast there wouldn't be so much fuss about it, Ringer would be just another new TV show. But Sarah Michele Geller is part of the cast and that made Ringer one of the most anticipating shows this season. There were so many expectations about it, but in the end most people wondered why. First episode was so-so, but I definitely wasn't amazed. Episode two was horrible in my opinion, after seeing that I was sure that I'm gonna quit watching it. For some unknown reason I watched third episode and it wasn't so bad. I'm still watching it but I'm not sure whether I like it...
