TOP 5 For Autumn

Those kind of posts keep popping up here and there and it got me thinking – if I need to pick top 5 what would they be?

Autumn is a hard time for skin in general – it’s hard to get used to colder weather and not to forget to use more heavy duty staff. The fluids should be substituted by rich creams, some tinted moisturizers by more covering bases to get more protection from cold and pollution. Hands and nails also start lacking some moisture. So what I pull out during fall?

HOW TO: At Home Manicure

I do go to the salon from time to time when I need a quick fix before an important event or meeting when I don’t have time to paint my nails myself. Of course it feels luxury and far more comfortable, but I cannot justify going to the salon every week or so and pay money for something I can do myself.

Usually I do an at home manicure one a week probably though I repaint my nails 2-3 times a week. I know it’s should be can be too much for the majority of people.

Haul #5

You cannot be a beauty blogger if you are not shopping on a regular basis, right?

I love shopping and especially in beauty departments – pretty much everyday I go into drugstore just to have a look – what’s new, which products are back in stock and just to browse around and play with bits.

Recently I went into the shop and couldn’t left with nothing – just too much tempting babies.

HOW TO: Ombre Nails

I know the ombre nail trend isn’t a new one, but I just love it and if it isn’t ‘in season’ anymore I don’t care. This nail art or design is very very versatile, cause depending on the season you can easily switch the colors and make it appropriate for any time.

I’ve been meaning to do this post all summer and never got to it – either had other things to blog about or forgot about that particular idea – that’s why I have a picture with summer neon theme, but as I said you can use whatever color you wish. So how to make this ombre effect on you nails?

Treat For Cuticles

The best thing you can do for your manicure to look nice (even without a nail polish) is moisturize your cuticle. And there is nothing bad than the look of untidy nails – I don’t know about you but I also pay attentions on peoples’ nails whether it is male or female.

I’m obsessed with moisturizing my nails cause I have a crazy cuticle – it grows very fast, it gets dry very fast (even if I apply oil 24/7) and I constantly have to message something into the cuticle. So I’ve accumulated a ridiculous small amount of care products. Let’s see what I have… (from top moving clockwise)

Blue mood

I have a ton of nail polishes and blue shade seems to make quite an appearance though it isn’t even my favorite color, how possible is that? 

Summer is waving a goodbye but I’m not ready to let it go yet, I’m planning to extend that summer vibe for as long as I can. How does blue nail polish on tan hands scream summer? For me it’s 100% summer. 

I have more blues than that, but for today’s selection this is enough.

NOTD #1

It isn’t always a case that a nail polish gets a separate post, but today’s hero deserve it. Amazing color, drugstore price, long-lasting formula, comfy brush – your hands and toes are just begging you in the store to take this baby home.

So… today’s hero is KIKO #278 (bought here) – it’s a pure galaxy – black passed violet with micro glitter of every possible color: blue, red, orange, silver, green… I don’t know, my eyes betray me here. I nothing nothing, but the sparking party.

I have nothing like this is my collection, this is so unique and beautiful and I’m glad I’ve picked this up.

To remove I used an ordinary nail polish remover, it did require more effort than removing cream nail polish, but still nothing too major (just an extra 5 minute song and few more cotton rounds).

I kept on looking at my nails the whole time and I got so many compliments and question about this polish like where what shade – you know the deal.

Have you tried some polishes from KIKO? Do you have some color suggestions I have to buy? Pop them in the comments!
