OPI My Address Is Hollywood + Essence White Hype

Polka dots! I absolutely love them and every now and then I have to have them on my nails. It is the easiest thing to do but always looks cute! My base color is OPI My Address Is Hollywood, for polka dots I used Essence White Hype. White Hype is my favorite white nail polish for nail art but I think that very soon it will be history because it is getting very thick and it is very hard to work with it. Before I applied top coat polka dots looked really messy but top coat saved the hole thing...well, everything except my index finger but I think I will survive 

Do you like polka dots manicure?

Julep Samantha

Julep Samantha is the first Julep nail polish that I tried from three that I have. I recently did a swap with Shayna from PolishJinx and she suggested me to try Julep nail polishes. I agreed right away, mostly because they have many beautiful colors and because I like to try new brands. Julep is something I can't get anywhere around here and it was a good chance for me to try it. Julep Samantha is gorgeous, screaming bright pink. Even pictures can show you how bright it is, there is no way that your nails are unnoticed with this one. When I first saw Samantha in person it reminded me to China Glaze Pool Party, they are not 100% dupes but they are really close ( Samantha is just a little bit darker ). Both of them will probably be my summer favorites because neon colors like that are made for summer.

The bottle contains 8 ml of product. Application was little bit tricky at first but I adjusted very quickly and everything was easy and smooth after. The finish of Julep Samantha is matte.

Catrice Ultimate Shine Pink Panther

Few days ago I was in my local drugstore and I saw Catrice Ultimate Shine Pink Panther, it was a quick look and I decided to buy it. This wasn't something I needed, I bought it because I felt like it :) When I do something like that sometimes I regret it but not this time. The color of the lipstick is very pretty, something I like to wear during spring and summer. When you apply it on your lips it feels like a lip balm and it is very comfortable. The lipstick also has a lot of silver shimmer, which makes it look shiny on your lips. The shade is called Pink Panther and you can probably assume how it looks like. Another appropriate name would be Barbie pink. This will be something I will wear a lot during daytime, for a night out I will reach for something else. 
In the end I'm glad that I got it, is been some time since a bought a new lipstick...and it always feels good to have some new makeup product :)

Once Upon A Time, Grey's Anatomy, Hart of Dixie and Gossip Girl - end of season

First of all I want to wart you that there are few spoilers...

Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time is probably the best new TV show this season. I already told you how much I like this show, and I will tell you now again! I enjoyed each episode, I love the characters and I love how the story comes together. Once Upon A Time is a show about fairytale characters living in our world - world without magic. In each episode we had a chance to see what happened in the past and what is happening now which gives a chance to collect the pieces together and discover the story behind the characters and what connects them. 
Season finale was amazing. I have to admit I had tears in my eyes few times...true love kiss  was my favorite scene. 
I can't wait for new season 2 to come and to see what will happen now when the curse is broken and magic is here.

Grey's Anatomy

Before season finale my look back at the season would be totally different. It was a great season of Grey's Anatomy but they ruin everything in the season finale. I understand that with they wanted to go big in the season finale because Grey's Anatomy is known for great, shocking and unexpected finals but this one is just too much for me. I think that the final of season 8 was the worst Grey's Anatomy episode ever. Not just that they killed off Lexie, a girl that everybody loves, everything else in the episode looked sloppy and it didn't make much sense. I would be fine if they decided to get rid off Lexie in some other way...if she left town or something, but to kill her like this is just cruel and I hate it. Not to mention that they were building up Lexie and Mark relationship through the hole season...and this is how it ends. Before the final I was really happy with the season and I was glad when they announced that Grey's Anatomy will go on for two more seasons but now I'm not excited about it any more. I will continue to watch it for sure, but it seams to me that there will be the same story again: depression and bunch of new doctors...

Hart of Dixie

Last week Hart of Dixie ended their first season.Hart of Dixie is the prefect show when you want to relax. It is easy going and I like it very, very much! I'm happy that season 2 is approved, because I know that I will be waiting for each episode to come out. This show like any girly dramedy has it all: lovable female character, two hot guys and a villain...Everything you need to have little bit of love drama. Maybe this isn't anything new, because almost every show out there has love triangle and love pain but I like this show anyway. It is simple, funny and keeps me smiling all the time. 

Gossip Girl

What can I say about Gossip Girl? With the end of season 5 we are back where we were in the beginning of the show. Season 6 will be the last one, so there is only 11 episodes of Gossip Girl left. I think that is a good thing because I don't see the point of going in circles again and again...and that is all Gossip Girl was last 2-3 seasons. I didn't buy Blair&Dan relationship at all, as well as Blair being a princess ( after she got married we didn't even saw her prince any more and pretty much everything was the same... ) I hope that in season 6 we will find something about real gossip girl ( I want to see Kristen Bell at least for a second  ) and that Chuck and Blair will be back together...The rest is not that important to me :)  
Share you thoughts with you watch any of these TV shows?

If you thought I'm done with TV shows...well   There is more to come...

Swap + new in

Recently I did a swap with Shayna from The Polish Jinx. Shayna wanted some Catrice nail polishes and I will try Julep nail polishes for the first time. I have Samantha, Helena and Blake. I like them a lot and I can't wait to try them. For now I only tried Samantha but Helena and Blake will be on my nails very soon :)

Almost  two months ago I decided that I will not buy nail polishes for a month. I was successful at my intent and  even when one month gone by I was holding on good. On the picture above you can see 3 nail polishes that I bought. Manhattan Lotus Effect Nail Polish - 65K ( I will probably post swatches soon because pictures are ready ), Essence Studio Nails 24/7 Nail Base, Essence Nail Art - More Then A Silver. 
Today I was at my local drugstore and I couldn't resist when I saw Catrice Ultimate Shine - Pink Panther 

Which one do you want to see first?

China Glaze Prismatic Full Spectrum and Ray-Diant

China Glaze Prismatic collection is full of beautiful glitter nail polishes, since I'm addicted to anything glittery I couldn't pass on this collection. Unfortunately I can't have them all so I narrow my choice to two polishes: Full Spectrum and Ray-Diant. When they first came in mail I wasn't very excited, yes they are pretty but somehow I wasn't impressed. You can imagine that everything changed when I applied them on my nails. Both of them are gorgeous and I can't choose my favorite. 

Full Spectrum is light purple base nail polish with loads of light purple micro glitter and larger rainbow glitter. It is very pretty, soft and girly. Two coats are enough for full opacity, it is easy to apply and it drys fast. 

Ray-Diant is clear base nail polish with loads of green-gold glitter and larger rainbow glitter. The color is pretty, it is mostly green but every now and then the gold comes out too. On the picture bellow I have two coats and as you can see it is opaque. Application of Ray-Diant was easy as well and it drys fast too. 

I love both polishes and I'm glad I picked up these two...If you love glitter like I do this could be something for you because they are really pretty and eye catching. Another good thing about them is that they can be worn alone or layered over some other nail polish. Maybe in the future I will try them like that too, but for now I will enjoy them on their own. They are just too pretty to mix them with anything else, at least for now.

Desperate Housewives - the end

Desperate Housewives ended at Sunday after 8 seasons. This is the TV show I was watching the longest and  it will be really weird without it. When it first came it was my favorite TV show and I adored the characters, mysteries , humor and that amazing "desperate housewives atmosphere" I'm glad that during the  entire show main characters stayed the same, especially four leading ladies. I hate when after two or three seasons half of original cast is gone, so for me this is great even thought I still wish Edie stayed as part of them. However, I think that I'm not wrong when I say that everyone has seen at least one episode of Desperate Housewives which is a big deal. My favorite season is the first one of course, but I also love season 2, 3 and 4. Season 5 was probably the worst season, five year jump into the future was not really the best move and even though seasons 6,7 and 8 were much better then that it was clear that the show should come the the end. They lost their spark and I think it is best if they are finished now because if they waited  few more years they would be completely washed out. Eight seasons is more then enough and the fact that they aired for so long is a great success.

Season 8 started great but when we got deeper into the season I was glad that this is the last one. There was a lot of potential  but somehow everything looked little bit sloppy. Despite all that I was looking forward to each episode because I knew that I will miss them when they are gone. Before season finale I was really exited to see the end. Main question was is there going to be a happy end or housewives end up desperate? Most of the finale was okay, but last 15 minutes of the show was perfection for me.  They showed us what will happen with each of of them. Not just that it was a happy end but the beautiful scenes when one life ends and new life begins, last poker game,  Susan's last ride through the lane...I really love it and I'm glad it ended this way.
Did you watch Desperate Housewives? Are you going to miss them or you are glad they ended?

Pastel nails

I always wanted paint all my nails different color and last week I finally did it! It was warm sunny day and nothing says spring like pastels. Maybe these colors will bring those sunny days back because when it is so cold in the middle of the spring something is really wrong. Anyway, lately I'm into pastel colors, I wanted to use five different pastel colors and in the end I used purple, green, yellow, pink and blue. I added white stripes to bring everything together. If you decide to do something like this you can be sure that everyone will notice your nails, but with beautiful soft colors like this it is easy to pull it off. 
Now I'm thinking about bright colors but maybe, maybe in summer 

I used Essence nail polishes: Bloom-A-Loom, Iced Mint Frappe, Flamingo Rose, Speed of Light Blue and White tip painter

Essence Soul Sista

Essence Soul Sista is Trend Edition I was waiting for mostly because I needed another kabuki brush and this one from Soul Sista TE seam to be very good. Beside the brush I couldn't resist to lipgloss and glitter eyeliner.

Powder brush is great. It is dense and soft, but not too soft and it is easy to work with it. Definitely a good buy, since I took the last brush from the display even better :) Looks very nice with coral / black hair. After I washed it few hairs fell out but nothing to be worried about.

Lounge Chair Affair lipgloss and glitter eyeliner

Brown and gold glitter eyeliner looks absolutely beautiful, I just wish that it is brown base with brown and gold glitter instead glitter in transparent base because you need few layers to get something. What I like is that it can work on top of other eyeliners, it is great in combination with black. 

Here is a swatch on my hand. On left side you can see how eyeliner looks with 1 coat, 2 coats and 3 coats. Then on the right side of my hand you can see 1 coat and 3 coats again and the last one black base and Soul Sista eyeliner.

Lounge Chair Affair is coral lipgloss. I love the color, it is really pretty and bright. My favorite during spring and summer. What I like about this lipgloss is that the color can be very intense with larger amount of product, small amount gives your lips nice glossy look with little bit of color. Of course I prefer the intense version :) Application is easy, like with any other tube lipgloss. The tube contains 6,6 ml of product.

The Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle, GCB and 2 broke Girls - the end of season

TV season is slowly coming to the end, here is little something about TV shows I watch. Just be careful there are some SPOILERS!

The Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 ended at Thursday. Still my favorite TV show even thought by the end of the season things got little bit messy. First part of Season 3 was going great, I was really happy how the story was going on and how new characters fit into it, also how they fit with old characters. Main focus was still on our main characters and there was always famous TVD triangle. After winter break things got  messed up a little and everything went down hill. One episode was great,  one was bad,  one was good, one was average... and story was running in circles. Elena loves Damon, Elena loves Stefan, Elena doesn't know who she loves...Vampires, hybrids, ware wolfs, hunters, doppleganger, witches, ghosts and the one I simply can't swallow Alaric's evil alter ego - vampire hunter. They just had to do something with Alaric, I guess they run out of ways to kill him...Alaric was one of my favorites and not just that he is gone they had to ruin him before they killed him off. Season finale was very disappointing, everything I didn't wanted to happen. Klaus is still alive just in different body - again, Bonnie made one stupid decision after another, Elena made a (wrong) choice and like that is not enough she is a vampire. WHY????? Also can someone please tell my where the hell is Katherine????

Overall season was not bad, last few episodes made me angry but there was also a lot of good things. For example real Delena kiss, the one all the Delena fans are waiting since the beginning of the show. It finally happened. Also Original family and Stefan and Damon relationship  
I'm still under season finale impression but soon it will pass and I will be crying for new episodes...September where are you??
What do you think about Season 3 of TVD? Tell me your opinion about season finale!

The Secret Circle

Well before I start I should say that unfortunately TSC got canceled. It is such a shame. The Secret Circle is not among the best TV shows for sure but it was really fun to watch it. Fist part of season wasn't that great, there was to many questions and not one single answer which made a lot of the viewers to give up from TSC. After winter break things got much better but it was already too late. Season finale was great and I was hoping for Season 2 because the way everything ended there is so much potential for amazing story next season. Not just that we won't be able to see turn of the events that happened this season, the show is also left unfinished. Don't you hate when something like that happens?


Another TV show which will not live to see another season. That is just unfair. GCB was hilarious TV show, it is a shame that they didn't get another chance. This is something you watch when you just want to relax and lough a little. I will miss them for sure, I think I will have to rewatch some episodes. 
Have you seen GCB? What do you think about it?

2 Broke Girls

2 Broke Girls Season 1 ended at Monday. The season was good, not the best sitcom I ever seen but not bad at all. I will probably continue to watch it in Season 2. I liked Season finale and I'm looking forward to see what will happen next.
