Happy Halloween!!!

Although we don't celebrate Halloween in Poland, I think it must be a real fun!
I decided to do a mani related to this holiday :)

Instead of Halloween we've got All Saints' Day (November 1st) and All Souls' Day (November 2nd - that is also my boyfriend's birthday :D).

Since our official religion is Catholicism, All Saints' Day is also our national holiday = it means that it's free of work!
On that day we visit graves of our relatives and friends and light candles, leave flowers and pray for their souls. Cementaries look beautiful on that holiday, especially in the evening!

Maybe next time i will show you some photos from that day if you want. 

i used:

- Sally Hansen Diamond Strength - African Violet
- konad special nail polish in green

Sensique - Paradise Island 233

I'm so glad i bought this one!
I found it on sale. It comes from summer collection of Sensique.
That's my local brand.
It cost about half a dollar, so it was cheap :)
Regular price of it is about 2 dollars.
The quality is good.
One thick coat is opaque!
There are 2 coats in the photo as far as i remember.
I love the color very much, that's why i decided to buy it :)

Other colours from that collection:

Frankening Konad Pastel Blue

I found the idea to franken konad polish on maRyya's blog.  

And I decided to try it with my pastel blue, because it was barely visible on nails.

The shadow i used was darker than the polish - navy blue.

This is the result.

what do you think?

Flowers.. again.

That's my today's mani.
I wanted to try one of my new konad plates, but i don't like the result very much, it's so so..
That's why I'm going to change it in the evening :)
ps. my rose is almost dead ;(
Have a nice day!

I used:

- konad image plate m51
- Sally Hansen Chrome Nail Makeup - Carnelian Chrome

Bell - Glam Wear 403

Here's another Bell Glam Wear I bought not so long ago, it's number 403..
These polishes don't have names, just numbers. Pity. I always enjoy the names.
If you were to make up a name for it.. what would it be??
i associate this colour with strawberries.. don't ask why..
i don't know :)

Coral Rose

Mani inspired by the rose i got for a teacher's day (october 14th).
My boyfriend says there should be three roses on a thumb,
and he's probably right...

i used:

Chrome Nail Makeup - Gold Chrome

Meet Me At Coral Island

This is my very first Catrice polish. I really like the colour. There are 3 coats, nevertheless it's not fully opaque. Maybe it needs 4 coats... Have a look.

Bell - Glam Wear

Hello everyone!

I have always been a bit sceptical about brands from Poland. However, recently I've discovered Bell Glam Wear. I know that for girls from Poland it's nothing new and they know those polishes very well and often praise them :) A few weeks ago i decided to have a try and I bought one of them. I was surprised by its good quality and.. colour! It looked like a real cobalt :) (unfortunately, it was very difficult to take a photo that would show its real beauty) A week later i realised that i need another one, i chose a light colour, and again i wasn't let down. Moreover, I plan to buy a few more :)
I think that someday i'll give you the chance to win some Bell polishes :)

Now, have a look at the photos :)
(there are 2 coats in the photos)

Bell 401

Bell 411

Don't you think it resebles cobalt? :)

Have a look at other colours.

(photos copied from Bell's website - Click here to visit their website)

Which one do you like the most?

Have a nice day.

Blushing Bronze resembles the colour of chestnuts :) and the leaves resemble leaves of a chestnut tree :)

Set A

Some of you wondered where the 'cow pattern' included in previous mani comes from. So I decided to show you that plate and the whole set. Because i didn't buy that plate separately, i bought the set.  I got it on polish website (website from Poland) similar to amazon or ebay. It cost about 15PLN which equals about 5USD, so it was very cheap.
If you want to see any of these patterns on my nails, let me know in a comment under this post.
