Essence Season Of Extremes: Little Miss Bright and Brightsmates

Today I want to show you two more nail polishes from Essence Season Of Extremes. You could already see my swatches of Bright Alert and now is time for Little Miss Bright and Brightsmates. 

First one is Little Miss Bright. Purple nail polish, reminds me to Essence Twins Gabrielle. I don't have Gabrielle and I can't compare it but I think that they are really, really close. Little Miss Bright is just like Bright Alert little bit sheer and I had to apply 3 coats. Other then that the color looks pretty and it will be great spring nail polish. The bottle contains 8 ml of product and it is easy to apply.

Next one is Brightsmates and this is my favorite from three Season Of Extremes nail polishes that I have. The base is beautiful gummy pink and the top coat is orange and golden shimmer. They look amazing together but I also love how pink base looks alone. Pink base is little bit sheer as well but it can get away with two coats, it looks really pretty and I think that I will sometimes wear it alone. When I added top coat the color looked very interesting. It is orange but you can see little bit of pink  peaking from behind, the color comes from orange to pink depending on the light. The bottle contains 2x4 ml of product and application is easy.

Here is Brighsmates on a nail wheel. First there is top coat over black base, it looks great like that as well. It is hard to define the color of top coat when is over black nail polish but it is something in between brown and purple. Next is base color alone. I really like the color even though it is little bit darker on the nails, on a wheel looks little bit lighter because the wheel is white and the color is little bit sheer. 

How do you like this collection? Do you have your favorites or you are going to skip it?

Random #2

Today I'm in a mood for another little bit of everything post... 

Yesterday I got a early Easter gift: first two books from The Hunger Games trilogy. I can't wait to start reading it, hopefully I will like it and it will be as good as everyone say it is.Third book is not translated to Croatian yet, I hope it will be soon.

The book I'm reading right now is Winter Garden by  Kristin Hannah, right now I'm somewhere in the middle and I really love it. The story is about a two sisters Meredith and Nina who live totally different lifes but after a while and some tragic events they have common goal: find out the truth about their mother's life. Their mother Anya is a cold woman and both Nina and Meredith had to learn to live with it but then suddenly they realize that maybe there is a lot more about their mother that they don't know... 

Now when I'm talking about books I can mention another one: Lucy In The Sky by Paige Toon. This is a chick lit and very relaxing book. It is about a girl Lucy who is torn between two choices: Sidney or London...Nathan or James...I wasn't amazed by this book but I definitely like it.

New Essence range came into my local drugstore and all bought was eyeshadow brush. There were few more products that caught my attention but maybe some other time. Beside the eyeshadow brush I have one nail polish from new range, but I will show it to you in a few days. Here is a closer look at the brush. Looks really good, I tried today just a little bit and it for now it is great.

My boyfriend came from Germany the other day and look what he brought me!!! Let's just say that he knows me very well...

Yeey for P2 nail polishes and for my first Misslyn polish! Can't wait to try them all! I don't know where to start, if you have any suggestions just let me know!

At the end of this post I have little announcement: I decided that in next month I will not buy nail polishes. The reason why I'm telling you about it is to make it "official" because now I really have to go with it. I got too many nail polishes lately and it is really time to calm down little bit. I already had one month of absence, it was December 2011 and it was successful. Do you have to control yourself when it comes to nail polishes, makeup, clothes...?

Essence Season Of Extremes: Bright Alert

Today I have a little pause from Sinful Colors nail polishes and I am wearing Essence Bright Alert from Trend Edition Season Of Extremes. When I saw the display I immediately spot Bright Alert. The color is neon pink. It looks gorgeous, I love pink nail polishes and for summer my favorite is bright pink. I figured this is going to be my go to color during the summer.  In the bottle color looks amazing but when I applied it on my nails I was disappointed. When I applied first coat I was surprised how sheer it is and I realized that I will need at least 3 coats. When I applied 3 coats I could still see my nail line. Excitement about this polish fell down a little but I think it may be okay with white base, it is a shame that in is not opaque enough. The bottle contains 8 ml of product.

Pretty little liars - end of Season 2

Season 2 of Pretty little liars has come to an end. For me this TV show is not the one I can't wait to see, I still watch it and I will probably continue to watch  mostly because, well I watch pretty much everything. But I'm not a big fan.Most of people end up disappointed after season finale but I didn't expect much and it was exactly how I thought it would be. The reason why everybody is disappointed is that they had high expectations and they believed that finally after 2 seasons we will get some of the answers. We didn't get the answers,  in fact I would be shocked if real "issues" in this show are solved and reveled.  The makers of the show tried really hard to make us believe that they gave us the answers but reality is they didn't. They only made look like it, but when Pretty little liars continue with Season 3 we will watch exact same thing. Because even though A is "reviled" now somebody else will take the part in torturing the liars because it was obvious that person who took the blame is not only one behind it.... and pattern will be the same.

I saw this picture few days

Sinful Colors Athens

After Sinful Colors Folly I continued with Sinful Colors Athens. Athens is nail polish from Cast Away Collection and it is absolutely gorgeous. I'm someone who isn't crazy for greens at all but Athens is a beauty. I think that this is going to be only green that I actually love from few greens in my collection. Athens is I would say dark, dusty green. To me it looks like a green version of Essence Chuck which is my favorite blue nail polish. 
Athens is creamy polish and it is easy to apply, formula is great and for full opacity 2 coats are more then enough. The bottle contains 15 ml of product. Pictures don't do much justice to this beautiful polish, because color in RL is more vivid ( I think this is the first time I used this word :lol: ). However, this is one amazing polish and I'm glad that it came my way!!

Red carpet: The Hunger Games promotion tour

Last week was premiere of The Hunger Games. The stars of the movie are promoting the movie all over the world and I have to say that Jennifer Lawrence and Elisabeth Banks look really good. I love their red carpet choices and I'm looking forward to see more. The hunger games is the huge hit right now, I don't know much about it but I decided to read the books and I'm trying to stay away from spoilers. After I read the books I will probably go see the movie. 
Now let's look at Jennifer and Elisabeth. ( Click on the picture to enlarge it. )

First we have Jennifer Lawrence in Prabal Gurung, I think that she looks STUNNING in this dress. Love it! My favorite from Jennifer.

Next one was London premiere. Jennifer wore Ralph Lauren. Another beautiful dress but maybe too similar to the previous.

In Berlin Jennifer was in Marchesa. Nice dress, I love the color but this one is my least favorite.

In Paris it was time for little black dress, very simple but I like it. The dress is Tom Ford.

Elisabeth Banks first choice was Versace mini dress for premiere in L.A.

 In London premiere Elisabeth wore gorgeous Bill Blass gown. This is my favorite look from Elisabeth.

In Berlin Elisabeth was in Elie Saab, I adore every Elie Saab gown and this one is no different.

In Paris Elisabeth Banks was in Marc Jacobs. Again she looked beautiful, I like the dress especially the color.

Sinful Colors Folly

Few days ago I got my first Sinful Colors nail polishes, I want to try them all right away and the first one that is on my nails is Folly. I applied it on Saturday and it is still here, hopefully it will stay at least until tomorrow and then I'm jumping on next one. Application of Folly was easy, the brush is very thin and it is easy to work with it. I will probably take pictures of the brush for my next Sinful Colors post. To get full opacity I applied 2 coats, even with 1 coat it looks good but with 2 coats the color is richer and more beautiful. The color of Folly is pink, something between fuschia and raspberry. Looks really pretty and bright but it was very hard to catch it and on the pictures it looks little bit brighter. Probably most realistic picture is 2nd, that one is taken in the shade and the rest in the sun. 

Anyway I think I'm falling in love with this brand and can't wait to try next color.

In the end little reminder: my giveaway is ending today, there is just few hours left and make sure you enter it!!

Swap with Nails.N.Details

I recently did a swap with Jeralee from blog Nails.N.Details. Jeralee wanted some Essence goodies and contacted me, of course I immediately said YES! When Jeralee said which brands she has close to her I knew that I have to try Sinful Colors nail polishes. I had fun few days exploring Sinful Colors and looking for colors, collection, swatches...It was so hard to decide but in the end I pick these polishes: Frenzy, Boom Boom, Hazard, Athens and Folly. Now that I got them I'm so happy with my choice because I like them even more now. You can expect separate posts of each nail polish very soon because I can't wait to try them all. I actually expected four polishes because I gave a choice to Jeralee between Athens because I couldn't decide which I like more and she surprised me with both!! Thanks for that I hope you will enjoy your goodies as much as I will!
Everyone check out Jeralee's blog and paint your nails, I know I will!

Preview: Essence TE Rebels

In April-May 2012 there will be another Essence Trend Edition called Rebels.The collection contains: cheek and lip pot, matte lipgloss, nail polishes and  mascara. I like that I see few different products in this collection, mascara and matte lip glosses are definitely something new. What do you think about Essence Rebels? I know that first thing I will grab is at least one lip gloss, it's a shame that there will be only two colors. Also rock top coat looks like something I will be interested in, at first it reminded me on Rock top coat from Re- Mix Your Style collection but if you look at it really closely it is different. I can't wait to see that one in real life.

There will be four nail polishes and one top coat: Mauve Like A Rockstar, Rebel Delight, Peach Punk, Rebelizer and Punk Royal

Two matte lipgloss: Mauve Like A Rockstar and Rebel Delight

Lips and cheek pot: Peach Punk

Spiderlash mascara: Punk Royal

P2 Crackling nail polishes

Finally P2 Crackling top coats post! I wanted them so long and few months ago when I was in Germany I didn't let them escape! I have four out of six P2 Crackling top coats and they are: Silver Blast, Golden Rush, Violet Fusion, Blue Thunder.First  here is one picture with all of them on top of black nail polish. You can see that they crack pretty good (please excuse the silver one and my clumsy application). Each bottle has 11 ml of product.

Here is how each of this polishes looks on my nails:

First combination is P2 Silver Blast and Essence Into The Dark. As you can see P2 Silver Blast looks really opaque but I was surprised that it has matte finish. I really love this one especially with dark blue base.

My next combination was P2 Golden Rush with Essence Gold Old Buffy. I like this combo because Gold Old Buffy is black base with loads of golden shimmer and it looked good with golden cracking top coat. Before I applied Golden Rush I was afraid that it won't be opaque but there were no problem, still Golden Rush is my least favorite from four polishes that I have.

Next combination is with two P2 nail polishes: P2 Blue Thunder and P2 Black Pearl. I love this one. I really like the shade of blue in this polish and there is also a lot of shimmer which is always a plus for me. For this color to be visible on dark base I applied thicker coat of Blue Thunder.

Last mani is with P2 Violet Fusion and Rimmel Star Kissed. Violet Fusion is purple with a lot of golden shimmer, because of that it looks much different on dark and light base. When I was about to try this one I wanted to really see the color that I see when I look at the bottle, so I went with light pink. Rimmel Star Kissed looked great for that but still I had to apply very thick coat of Violet Fusion. In the end I think that this one is my favorite and I can't wait to try it with different base colors.
