Essence We Are Young lipstick

One of latest Essence trend editions is Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. I picked up one lipstick We Are Young. Surprisingly I didn't choose bright colors, I choose something little bit subtle. I have enough bright lipsticks in my stash, now I wanted everyday, casual color. We Are Young is exactly that.  This is meat pink lipstick and works perfectly for me last few weeks. 

Package is very girly and it is easy to store it. Application is easy, however I have a feeling that this lipstick could show any imperfections on your lips. For now it is all good because my lips are nice and smooth but I'm not sure how would it look on dry lips. If I apply We Are Young and there is just a little bit extra skin on my lips it  would show it. So, that could be a down side of this product but for now everything is good. Hopefully I will not change my mind during winter.

On pic above you can see my swatch. Very pretty, everyday pink. One of my favorites these days.

September nail art challenge: Tropical

Third theme for the nail art challenge is Tropical. With this mani it is so obvious that I'm so out of practice with nail art. However, here is what I did. I knew I want to draw palm tree on one nail for sure and I decided to draw palm leaves on other nails. They turn out really bad but I didn't want to remove it and try again. I went with pink and green, both look pretty tropical to me. I like how palm tree looks like but hopefully next mani will be better.

I used: Essence Herzl, Essence Bella, Essence Waking Up In Vegas and Golden Rose number 106

September nail art challenge: Gold

Second task for September Challenge was Gold. Again, I only did accent nail but I love how this mani turned out. Catrice Bronze - Deco is a beauty and this challenge reminded me on this polish and I think I should use it often. I did accent nail with black striper and I added some star studs. Hopefully I will have more time for my next mani and I will have nail art on every nail but I love these simple manis as well.

I used: Catrice Bronze - Deco and  Golden Rose number 106

September nail art challenge: Owls

I'm always looking for nail art challenges online, for some reason they are always hard to find. So when I found one yesterday I decided to do it. I'm little bit late but I'm gonna pretend that I found this on the beginning of September. Here is Instagram link for everyone who is interested in this challenge and you can look at some awesome manis. Also, this girl comes up with challenges often so I will keep my eye on it.
First theme was owls. Very simple. I already had nail polish on my nails and I just decided to draw owl on my accent nail since I wanted to start right away.

I used: Essence Queen Of My Cloud Castle, China Glaze Snow, Maybelline City Smoke and Essence My Sparkling Acrobat

Here are themes for the September Challenge:

OPI Pineapples Have Peelings Too

I was eyeing OPI Pineapples Have Peelings Too ever since Hawaii collection came out. It looks so beautiful in the bottle and I really wanted to own it. Finally I got it few weeks ago and it turns out that I don't like it on my nails at all. Still, when I look at the bottle it is so pretty, looks like glitter in the sand but on my nails it is just not good looking nail polish. Pineapples Have Peelings Too is shimmery gold base with rainbow micro and hex glitter. However if you want hex glitter on your nails you will have to tap it on your nail because with usual application you will get one or none on your nail. Pineapples Have Peelings Too dries fast and with two coats there is visible nail line. I'm not sure how much I will use this nail polish, maybe with nail art.

The Good Wife - the end (spoiler )

When last TV show season finished I didn't do my usual TV show recap but there is one show that deserves a post. The Good Wife is finished after seven seasons. For years The Good Wife was one of the best drama shows, I started watching it at the beginning of the year. I thought it will take me a lot of time to go trough every episode but it took me only few months because I couldn't get enough of it. Faster then I ever thought it was possible I have seen every episode of The Good Wife. I started in January and finished 7th season last month. Right from the start I developed little obsession and I was watching The Good Wife every free moment I had. I even posted about it here. Now when the show is over and I look back I like it even more. It is true that they went down in quality but for a show with 7 seasons that is the reality.

In my opinion first three seasons were the best and after that we could see drop of quality  but we are still talking about great show. The biggest asset to this show were great characters. Beside Alicia who was in the center all other characters were great. I simply can't name only one. Kalinda, Eli, Diane? They were not just great characters but they were portrait by amazing cast, in fact The Good Wife cast assemble was very good.

Now let's talk about Alicia, this was after all her journey. She truly made a full circle and I like how they recreated first scene in the end of her standing behind her husband but this time as a different person. Also that legendary slap. The one in the beginning and especially the one in the end. From Alicia being scared and reserved we saw transformation to a person who took charge and didn't look at others and what they think. Everything that happened to her changed her but she definitely stayed the good wife until the end.

Crucial moment when this show started to change was when Will died. He was not my favorite character but he was big part of the show and it was different without him. Also without Kalinda, she was just awesome and nobody could replace her. When I was watching The Good Wife I didn't read about it a lot but I came across some articles about Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi fight in private life that reflected on the show because they didn't want to work together anymore. That was such a shame because their scenes together were the best.

Last season was not all bad but it was the worst compared to rest six seasons for sure. It was clear that they are trying to wrap things up, atmosphere was different and unusual. One day everybody works apart and the next day they are all together. At one point it looked like everybody is going on their own just to come back together later. The end of the show was good. Not the best because things were left a little bit undefined but on the other hand we got the hint in witch way everybody is going. All in all one of the best shows I've seen, this is among my top shows for sure.
