Vacation time! Tomorrow I'm going on a vacation and I'm soooo happy and excited about it! Probably I won't spend my time surfing like the guy on the picture but I'm sure I'm gonna have a good time!
I spend last few day paking and preparing everything for the trip so here is few pictures...I will see you when I come back home, I'm not sure if I'm going to have internet access but if I do I will try to make a post...

Here is my new super bright bathing suit which I bought few days ago...I love it!!

No heels when I'm on vacation...

Of course I need bunch of nail polishes ( I will try to post my swatches of China Glaze Summer Neons ASAP )

Whenever I travel I take 2 perfumes with me, it doesn't matter is it 2 or 10

Finally I'm going to start reading Vampire Academy, first two books should be enough!

Are you traveling somewhere this summer?
See you when I come back if not sooner

Swap: Sinful Colors, Sally Hansen, Wet n Wild, Pure Ice

Few months ago I did a swap with Jeralee from NailsNDetails blog and some time later we decided to do another swap. Again I had fun when I was looking for nail polishes and in the end I'm more than happy with polishes I choose! Here is my five new Sinful Colors ( Pink Glitter, Boogie Nights, Cream Pink, Timbleberry and Cinderella ) nail polishes and three other brands I will try for the first time: Sally Hansen ( Rockstar Pink, Lady Luck and Strobe Lights - which was beautiful surprise from Jeralee) , Wet N Wild  ( Sparkled ) and Pure Ice ( Strapless )! When I look at all these colors there is no way to choose a favorite, I just lave them all and I know I will have a lot of fun with them!! Hopefully Jeralee will love her new polishes as much as I love these!!
Here is a closer look at the nail polishes, soon you can expect separate post with them!

My nail polish stash: green

Finally I'm going to continue My nail polish stash posts! Today is time for green nail polishes. I have to tell you that I was surprised when I realized that I have 14 green nail polishes, I was almost sure that it will be half of that...Now when I'm thinking I know that that is not possible and this is the right number but I'm still little bit surprised because in general I don't like green nail polishes. I use them time to time and there are few that I really like but green just isn't my favorite color...Before we move on to the pictures I want to say that I had hard time with these pictures and they are accurate as they can be, I tried to get the realistic swatch but you probably know that  green is not very willing to cooperate, so in the end pictures came out okay but  last five polishes are not very good...I hope you don't mind 

Avon Color Trend Jungle Green - This is one of the nail polishes I have the longest, I used to use it more often and the bottle is almost empty - but I can't remember when was that exactly because it has been a long time since I had it on my nails :) The best way to describe the color is - military green.
Catrice Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy! - Creamy lime green nail polish with one of the best nail polish name ever!!
Essence Colourbration - from Crazy Good Times trend edition. Another lime green nail polish, the difference is that this one is little bit darker then the previous and it has a lot of beautiful shimmer.
Essence Iced Mint Frappe - Beautiful minty color. Great pastel for spring and summer. Love it!
Essence King Of Mints - from You Rock trend edition. Similar to the previous color, the difference is that King Of Mints has shimmer and the color is little bit darker. Between this and previous one I like Iced Mint Frappe more.

Catrice Sold Out For Ever - original version. One of the best light greens out there. Beautiful color with loads of subtle green shimmer.
Color Club Glitter Envy - This is without a doubt my favorite green nail polish. It is absolutely stunning! Bright green with loads of golden glitter. This is probably only green polish that I'm in love with!
Basic Beauty Nr. 65 - It took me a lot of time to actually try this nail polish on my nails, I often wondered why did I bought it but all went away first time I had it on my nails. Green with a lot of golden shimmer, very pretty!!
Sinful Colors Athens - Another one that I really love. Beautiful dusty green with creamy finish!

P2 Artful - Very nice and bright green. I would say this is a classic green but if you look at my pictures you can't really see that. I wanted to dedicate a post to Artful long time ago but every time pictures turn out bad...However nice color, if you are green lover this would be perfect for you.
Essence Bella - Looks a lot like P2 Artful, just a little bit darker. Unfortunately doesn't look realistic on my pictures, in reality it is much brighter and prettier.
Essence Crazy Me - from Crazy About Color trend edition. Darker version of Bella. One of those colors that I love but anywhere except my nails 
Essence Choose Me - One of most popular Essence nail polishes. This is a dupe for OPI Catch Me In Your Net and Zoya Charla. Wonderful color, one of my favorite greens. ( On wheel below looks totally blue  )
Essence Back To Paradise - from Return To Paradise trend edition. Dark green nail polish which I don't use a lot...

So, that would be it!
Do you like green nail polishes? Which one is you favorite?

Avon kabuki brush

Maybe a year ago I wanted to order Avon blush brush but instead I made a mistake and ordered kabuki brush. At the time I didn't need kabuki so I put it away and totally forget about it. Few days ago I suddenly remembered it and I wanted to use it a little bit.
Kabuki was still in plastic bag as the first day I got it. When I opened it the smell was pretty strong so I immediately wash it. When I was washing it the water was dark and  also
a lot of hair fell out. Hair is synthetic and it was very uncomfortable under my fingers especially when it was wet. It took a lot of time until it was completely dry and the bad smell was still here. So I wash it again and after a very bad start it was time to actually try the brush. You can probably imagine that I wasn't very optimistic about it and to tell you the truth I didn't even wanted to try it any more  First I tried to apply loose powder and then a blush. In the end I was pleasantly surprised. The fiber on this brush is very firm and that makes application very easy. You don't need large amount of product and it blends out very nicely. So, in the end turns out that the brush that seam to be very bad quality does the work very well. But I seriously doubt that I would repurchased it, even thought I always had a good experience with Avon brushes...I have a feeling that this will always be the last brush I will reach for.

Here it is side by side with my other kabuki brushes: Look By Bipa and Essence Soul Sista.

How is your experience with Avon brushes?

Sinful Colors Frenzy + Essence Pool Party

Sinful Colors Frenzy is gorgeous glitter nail polish, it is a mix of purple and blue glitter in clear base. I had it on my nail few times and now I'm going to show it to you for the first time. On the picture above you can see Frenzy on top of Essence Pool Party which is gorgeous blue with silver shimmer. I love how they look together. When I was looking for nail polish to go with Frenzy this was my first choice and I think I made a good choice. They look very pretty and summery together.

On second picture you can see how Frenzy looks alone. I have 3 coats on the picture above and even thought it is not completely opaque I like it. Usually if glitter polish is not opaque I like to wear it as a topper but this one has really beautiful and unusual shine and I think it looks great on it's own too. Most of the time I will probably combine it with other colors ( I can't wait to try it with black base!! ) but every now and then I'm sure I will decide to wear it alone...either way I love it!
