NOTD: Halloween

This year I didn't plan to do any nails for Halloween, because last year I joined a challenge and covered a lot of themes, but then I received cute Halloween water stickers from Born Pretty Store and decided to wear them today. I started with two coats of Essence Black is Back on pinkie, ring and middle finger and two coats of Essence Orange Sunset on index finger and thumb. Over the black I also applied polishes S-he 115 and and P2 Hold Me Tight with saran wrap technique. Application of water decals was easy, I just put them in the water for few seconds and them placed them on my nails where I wanted to have them. I love how the manicure came out, although I wish now that I'd do all nails black. 


Do you wear any special Halloween manicure? What do you think about these stickers? Thank you for reading!

New In (October)

October was one exciting month. I went on the Cosnova event, where I got a lot of beauties which are stars of this post. I took photos of products before I separated those for giveaway, so I'll show them to you all together, but I'll write near each one, if it's part of a giveaway or I kept it. I can't promise I'll review every single product that I kept, but I already started to test some and while some amazed me, others didn't really leave such a great impression. 


Catrice It's Showtime - a glittery silver polish, opaque in two coats. 
Catrice Plum Fiction - a purple glittery shade, opaque in two coats.
Ombre Top Coat (giveaway)
Catrice Colour Brightening base coat
Catrice My Satin Ballet Shoes (giveaway)
Catrice Million Styles Holo Que Tal? (giveaway)


Catrice Tinted Lip Glow Balm (giveaway)
Catrice Vitamin lip treatment - a nice scented, but a bit sticky gloss.
Catrice Volumizing Lip Booster (giveaway)
Catrice Mauve Your Lips - a mauve shade, but I haven't try it yet. I hope it'll look good on me.
Catrice Beautifying lip smoother Sweet Caramel and Apricot Cream - both are really nice, although not as pigmented as Cake Pop, which is still my favourite, but I like to use all three, because they moisten my lips great and are perfect products for every day use.


Catrice Colour Correcting mattifying powder Delicate Blossom
Catrice Velvet Matt Eyeshadow Al Burgundy and Vanillaty Fair (giveaway) - I already had those before, so you can check my review here.
Catrice Illuminating Blush Coral Me Maybe - this one doesn't have the best pigmentation, but it's buildable and it gives nice coraly look to the cheeks, which I like. It contains shimmer, which luckily isn't overwhelming on face. Lately I enjoy to use it on my face a lot. 
Catrice Defining Blush Mandy-rine - a lovely peachy shade.
Catrice Fixing Brow Way
Catrice Longlasting Brow Definer Chocolate Brow'nie
Catrice Lash Extension volume mascara
Catrice lash applicator - I tried this one and it did quite a good job. Application of false lashes was easy with it, so I'll use it more often in the future. 


Catrice 3in1 Skin Tone Adapting Make Up Lighter Skin - it's a white liquidy product that changes color when it comes in touch with the skin. It actually adapts to my skin tone, but I'm still not sure about this product. I noticed that it dries my skin a bit. I'll take one longer period to test this product well, before writing a review.
Catrice Velvet Finish foundation Light Velvet - I haven't test this one yet, because I was more curious about Nude Illusion foundation. 
Catrice Nude Illusion Rose Vanilla - this one will be a part of my Facebook giveaway.
Catrice Velvet Finish concealer Velvet Ivory - it's a perfect shade for my skin tone. It's creamy, nice pigmented and it covers my under eye circles very good. 
Catrice Velvet Finish Powder Natural Velvet - I'm going to test this one together with liquid foundation.
Catrice Absolute Matt eyeshadow palette - don't hate me, because I haven't try this one yet, but lately I don't wear any eyeshadow on daily basis, just a mascara (lazy beauty addict :P). But this palette will be definitely reviewed in few weeks. 


First group were Catrice products, now let's see what I got from Essence.


Essence Gel Nails at Home 2in1 Primer&Cleanser (giveaway)
Essence Gel Nails at Home 2in1 Base and Top coat French and Clear peel off gel (both part of a giveaway)
Essence Nail Art Sparkle Sand top coat (giveaway)
Essence Color&Go Juicy Love - a classic red creme shade.
Essence Icy Fairy - omg, this is a gorgeousness in a bottle. It's a polish with silver glitter and blue and purple shimmer.
Essence I Love Magic (giveaway)


Essence Glossy Lip Balm Raspberry Sorbet (giveaway)
Essence Adorable Matt (giveaway) - this is a gorgeous red semi-matte shade.
Essence Femme Fatale (giveaway)
Essence Effect lipgloss Oh La La and Jewels in a Bottle (giveaway)


Essence Glow in the Night Click&Go Nails (giveaway)
Essence sharpener 
Essence Nail Art Hello Foils Graffiti Look transfer foils (giveaway)
Essence Nail Art Hellow Foils transfer solution (giveaway)
Essence Neon and Glow in the Dark Stickers
Essence Silky Blush Autumn Peach (giveaway)
Essence Soo Blush! cream to powder blush Sweet as Peach
Essence Soo Glow! cream to powder highlighter Bright Up Your Life (giveaway)


Essence Liquid Ink Matt and High Gloss eyeliner - those have thin brush that enables easy application. Pigmentation of glossy one is great and it lasts all day without smudging. 
Essence Lash Princess volume mascara - this is definitely one amazing mascara. It's not as wet as I Love Extreme Volume, it separates lashes nicely, lengthens them and gives them an amazing volume. 
Essence Metal Glam eyeshadow Chico-Chic - Essence made a great job with Metal Glam eyeshadows, these have great pigmentation, so I can't wait to try this one.
Essence 3D eyeshadow Irresistible Fullmoon Flash - this on will be part of my Facebook giveaway.
Essence Effect eyeshadow UK's Stonehenge and Brazil Sunset - I heard a lot of good things about these eyeshadows, so I'm happy I got them.


Essence Come to Town nail polish set Naughty or Nice - a set with red, plumy and golden glittery nail polish. These all have nice formula. I already swatched them, so I hope I'll manage to post them next week. 
Essence Luxury Lacquers Champaign Rain - a shimmery golden shade, opaque in two coats.
Catrice First Class Up-Grape - a lovely burgundy shimmery shade, opaque in two coats, although application isn't as easy because of its horrible brush.
Essence Insensifying Base Wild White Ways - anyone noticed I like white nail polishes? :D
Catrice Wood You Love Me? - I wanted to try something nude to combine it with bold and smoky looks.
Catrice Defining Blush Love and Peach and Think Pink - a peachy and pink shade. 
Catrice All Matt Plus Skin Control Powder Transparent - let's just say I didn't had big luck with Essence mattifying powder (two of them have fallen into pieces after few usages), so I decided to try Catrice one. 
Essence All About Sunrise eyeshadow palette - I really like the shades of these eyeshadows. It's true these are more summery, but I'll use them now in winter.
Catrice Velvet Finish concealer Velvet Ivory
Catrice Nude Illusion foundation Nude Ivory - this shade is quite a good match for me. It's medium opaque foundation that drys matte. It works well on my normal skin.


The same week as Cosnova event was happening I got another surprise package, this time from MeMeMe. I received Flawless Cream Foundation Beige Blush, which is unfortunately too dark for me, and Inspire Quad Eyeshadow Goddess


What I bought this month are actually mostly some random products I needed, like Ebelin cotton pads and Duchesse sticks, Aveo nail polish remover, Balea Strawberry hand lotion, Balea Washgel and Essence nail polish in shade Black is Back.


What did you got during October? You can still enter my Essence&Catrice giveaway. Thank you for reading!

Stamping NOTD's

I remember when I started with stamping. I was so bad in it. But with time I discovered that's not all about skills, you also need to have a good engraved plate and a good stamper. I really enjoy using Born Pretty Store stamping plates, because designs transfer very easily and they also have very interesting plates. Lately I'm a bit obsessed with plate Qgirl-013, I use it all the time. I made many nail art manicures with them, and today I want to show you four of them. 


And here's a plate. That way you can better imagine, which design I used for each manicure. I tried to take a photo of a plate, but designs were barely visible because of my reflection, so I borrowed this photo from Born Pretty Store site.

First is my graduation manicure. I went with green because I wore green shirt. I used Barry M Ridley Road, Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet and Barry M Greenberry for stamping.


For this manicure I used Kardashian Beauty Buff, Models Own Amethyst, P2 Precious and H&M Plum for stamping. I stamped a flower design on two accent nails, which I really love. 


Next one is my favourite. I used Catrice Plum Fiction, Essie Mind Your Mittens, Essence Icy Fairy, S-he 115 and Catrice First Class Up-Grape. In middle finger I stamped a design from Essence plate and on ring finger a dandelion from BPS plate. 


The last one is more fall coloured design. I used the same design as for first manicure, since it has leaves and I wanted to do something like "fallen leaves" theme. I used S-he 115 as a base and P2 Hold Me Tight, Essence Orange Sunset and Essence Yeah, Copacabana for stamping. I wanted to use more colors, because fall leaves are colorful as well.


If you're going to shop in Born Pretty Store, you can use 10 % discount code. :)



What do you think about my manicures? Which one is your favourite? Thank you for reading!
