31 Day Challenge: Day1 RED nails (MISSHA, Catherine Arley, Golden Rose)

It was very busy Monday today, whole day I went from one office to another, just such a long day; glad it ends. Many important things was settled and I'm very pleased actually:) Just got home after hearty lunch with my hubby, ready to run to do household chores and take care of my kids LOL~ But before I'm gonna update my blog, coz t's very exciting about daily nail challenge :) 
Starting from today I decided to run on the 31 Day Nail Challenge which a lot of other nail bloggers has started but here is mine LOL~ The first day on the challenge states that it should be red nails and I really thought about making a creative nail design for each day and each color but it also says that the first decade shoud be just a color, so instead of that I will share some matching colors from my nail polish collection :)

MISSHA Lucid Nail Polish in RD04. I'm wearing 2 layers on, without top coat. It's such an amazing red color, it has a lot of glitters to it and looks so luxury to me. I love this polish a lot, it recently became on my go-to red nail polish. Very opaque texture, applies and looks awesome even in one coat.

I also like to apply a layer of Catherine Arley #724 on top of Missha color. Coz it adds some more red mico glitters and shiny finish and I just like this red combination a lot. It hard to see all the beautiful glitters on this picture but it looks so pretty and always remind me of  red shoes of "Wizard of Oz". This nail color by itself is clear based polish with a ton of micro red glitters to it.

Golden Rose #18. 2 layers on without top coat. Nice red color, reminds me of a ripe tomato. Creme finish. Nothing special about this nail polish but I just wated to try it out, never had a chance to see it on my nails.

Evelin SILVER HOLOGRAM

I had a chance to get some "foreign" brand of nail polishes and I bought this one which made in Poland I guess (if I'm wrong, LMK I'll correct it). Everyone likes holo so do I. And because of that I immidately grabed this silver color. It looks pretty in the bottle but nothing like on the nails, weird! But despite all this it still looks as nice silver/foil with a tiny bit of something to it nail polish.

EVELIN Nail Polish in SILVER HOLOGRAM. 2 coats on it looks better in 3 layers tho. Very sheer texture. Smooth application. Dries very slow and it dries to the sticky finish, coz it's can't completely dry by itself I guess, fast dry top coat is very much recommended for this particular situation. Not very much bling-bling effect as it usual seems in holo polishes.

This picture was took in the shade. And it looks like a crumbled kitchen foil to me which is not bad at all. Sometimes I like wear such nail polishes by itself, good opportunity when U have no time for "creative" manicure.

And the next week I'm gonna start doing this nail challange. I know a lot of nail bloggers has already doing it but I didn't had a chance to start it before so I'm doing it now. If U like make it too, lets do it together :) LMK~

LASHEM

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Every time when I get emails from web-sites which try to offer me a skin care products I never message them back because I'm very capricious when it comes to my skin care. Coz I had hard time to fight acne and I don't want them back! I prefer use those products which is actually work for my skin and don't risk/experiment with something else. But when I was contacted by LASHEM I looked at the web-site and was exciting to try out anything from them. The products sound so nice and really, the packaging looks so luxury and the price is not cheap at all. I agreed and I think I was expecting some kind of a miracle from those products and may be my review is not postive at all but that is what I think about them right now! Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MYMAKEUPMANIA's experience: It's light texture, milky in color eye cream which is intended for use in morning skin care routine. One pump is enough for both eyes. It feels like a film on the skin when put a lot of product on. Absorbs nicely, non greasy feelings. Have no any scent. And it has slightly tingle effects for first few times and after about a week I don't feel any tingle at all! It mousturize but it doesn't lift my under eye wrinkles and right now it remained so as it was before to use the eye cream.

MYMAKEUPMANIA's experience:  It's another not heavy texture, in the color of melted sugar eye cream which intended for use at night skin care routine. One pump is quite enough for both eyes, absorbs very good. Have no scent. It still burning my under eye area, I guess it supose tingle as the Picture Perfect Anti-Wrinkle Cream but this one feels like bees attacking my face every time I use it! I don't have a lot of puffiness and crazy dark circles but I still have some under my eyes and seems like this product don't do nothing with them. I still have the same dark under eye area. 

I made 2 pictures before and after. I started using this LASHEM kit at October 14 and I took a pictures with the result at October 27. I used it for 2 weeks and clearly I don't see any result on my eyes! I still have the same dark circles under the eyes and I still have the same wrinkles in the tearduct area. The pictures are not clear coz I'm in a process of learning how to take "macro" clear pictures but I can see everything on my face LOL~

MYMAKEUPMANIA's experience: It's a clear consistency eye lash gel which also can be used for eye brows as well which helps to moisture and condition the eye lashes. This product will lasts for 90days. It have no smell at all and it have no tingle effect as well. After 2 weeks of using this product I've noticed that my lashes got a volume :) My eyelashes are not weak or damaged but it nice to have some extra moisture and shine. Also there was a pink ribbon (BCA) on the package of this product, kindda great! But I've noticed that my eyes are itching like crazy after using of this product! The final result nice visible on the picture above.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
MYMAKEUPMANIA's experince: Black 2 sided mascara. I can't say which side for what just because this mascara is not working for me at all! It don't curling, thickening, volumizing etc., my lashes just don't do anything. It just coloring my lashes in black and thats it! Yeah, it don't clums too LOL~ May be it will work better when it dry a little bit but for now it's 2 thumbs down! Boooo!
Look at the picture with my everyday make-up. I used this mascara and it looks little noticeable as if there is no mascara at all.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
FINAL VERDICT: Of all these products I can really recommend the Lash Gel because I really can notice a result and other products is just a waste of money. It's my personal opinion, if they works great for U I'm happy!

All this products U can find at LASHEM web-site.

Cracking Nail Polish

This few days I'm gonna do a blog posts with nail polish swatches kindda pictures coz I've got a huge container with never used nail polishes and I really want use all the stuff I have LOL~ And here is the first nail polish which I actually used but never mentioned it. For this one I used neon orange (Eclipse in BIKINI ORANGE) as my main background color.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
And the same cracking nail polish over the blue (The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex collection in BL602 nail polish) with white polka dot.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
It is a China Ming Shang cracking nail polish which I've bought last year. It smells bad and it has the weirdest/the worst brush I've ever used. Most of the cracking nail polishes do separating when it dries and it can be observed but this one is compacting and separating at the same time. And just coz of that on the first picture most of the "moon shape" on my nails is naked/without cracking polish on. When it dries it has a matte finish as most of 'em.
NOT RECOMMENDED!!

Have U tried this nail polish brand? How do U like them? Which is ur fave cracking nail polish?

Blue Ceramic Flower

This mani was done a long-long time ago when I was in a vacation to my home-town. I walked into a beauty store and saw all such flower nail decorations, it includs 5 same size flowers in one plastic bag. There was so many different color like a huge rainbow but I bought only these blue ceramic flowers coz they costs quite expensive...

...full mani...
I really don't remeber now which products I used.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
Here I tried to wear 2 flowers on my ring fingers and I can say that it's so heavy kindda and uncomfortable at the same time. One flower it's just perfect for creative nail design!

TRUE BLOOD: Blood Splatters

Thats funny, coz I got addicted to the TRUE BLOOD show really fast. I'm already finishing season 3 and I don't know what to do when all this will be done LOL~ I was really into TV show lately and was inspired for my mani as well.
"BLOOD SPLATTERS" 
MATERIAL USED:
KISS Ultra Growth
Etude House nail polish in WH708 "CREAMY GREY"
The Face Shop nail polish Nail Talk collection in RD301
The Face Shop Face & It collection Long Lasting Top Coat
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
HOW TO DO:
Apply base coat and 2 coats of any creme grey polish which is close to the skin color of vampires. Less shimmer than more it looks "natural".
With a usual tube for juice blow out the creme red polish as a blood splatters. To avoid a mess around my nails I applied a thick layer of vaseline and it was easy to get rid of remains polish around the nails.
Seal everything with clear top coat.
My right hand...
Thats it for another version of Halloween nail design!

Haul of the October

It's time to share my October's haul. I have a lot of progress I think, it's not that much stuff as usual I buy, only things which I was needed in. I walked into The Face Shop story to buy some nail polish remover and facial cleanser. I get long lasting top coat from them too (needed one) and I regret about this so much, it has a very harsh brush which can easily destroy all ur nail design! I also bought an empty eye shadow/blush palette and filled it with my Lovely Me:ex blushes.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
I also made an amazing swap with Ash-Lilly check out her amazing nail blog [HERE]. She sent me a bunch of brilliant nail polishes and Beauty UK eye shadow palette which I've already used and I like the colors from that palette :)
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
And look at this.... How sweet it is, huh? She sent me some handmade jewelries! And I looove them so sooo much! It's beautiful!
ThanQ Liane very much! I really do like all the goodies U sent me! mwahhh~
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Thats it! Yes, really, it's all I have this month :) I've already used quite a few products from this haul and if U followed my previous updates U probably saw them. Deal with myself working pretty nice, much better than I thought actually. Gonna keep "non-buying" mode slightly increase next month tho ;)
What is ur last haul?

An Alternative for Striping Tape + White Lace Polka Dot Pedicure

Hey there! Hope U all doing great!
I did this design a while ago when my nails was long and square. I really wanted to play with a striping tape but actually never had a chance to get some for myself and I've thought of another way. Kindda used a Christmas tree decorations for this (on my language it calls "rain"). There is a ton of different colors and also it's available in 3D pattern, awesome huh? So, I've used the silver 3D for the mani. 
The main red nail color is The Face Shop Hologram collection in RD301. 2 coats on.
 
This "rain" Christmas tree decorations looks like this. Those are not my pictures, I found them through Google search. It's very easy to use them, just cut some stripes, stick on the clear nail polish and also it has clear film on top side which peels off very easily and U have only decoration pattern on the nails. I was very happy to wear them coz it looks really unique :)
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
Here is nails of my sister. The design made by me. Sponged blue nail tips (The Face Shop nail polish Lovely Me:ex collection in BL602) and flower nail stickers.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
Also I've used one of my new nail polishes. This one is by Barry M in "BERRY". It's 2 layers on without top coat. Very pretty creme nail color, dries in normal time. Looks very adorable :) Me like this polish xoxo~ 
And finally here is my toes of the day. I used another UK brand Beauty UK glam nails nail polish in Mauve Flash No.34. Also I stick The Face Shop white lace stickers and added small white dots. Yeah, I cut off my toe nails, U got one star! LOL~

MyMakeUpMania is Back!!! Beauty UK Eye Shadow Palette Look

HeLLo everyone! I think it's a good time to return the title of my blog on MyMakeUpMania again. Coz I'm try to get back to make-uping 'n stuff so I'll be make more FOTD now :) Recently I've got the package from UK from sweet Liane, we made a swap with her and she sent me a ton of great things and one of them is the Beauty UK eye shadow palette. The bright purple eye shadow was slightly crumbled but it still works for me anyways :)
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
Beauty UK eye shadow collection
I've did the cut crease eyes using bright purple, the lightest blue, yellow, orange and pink colors from this palette. The texture of them is very soft and applies smoothly and I think it'll be more vibrant on any white eye shadow base.
Still practicing on using bright eye shadows and right lighting tho, hopefully next time I'll be back with more clear pictures for U :)

I'm still not sure of the system on which I will update my make-up posts and if U have any requests feel free to post them in the comment section below.
Have a great day!

Water Decals: HeLLo Kitty and Snow White and Floral Images

HeLLo everyone!
I can not get enough of playing with my new oval shaped nails coz all the cute designs looks even more prettier LOL >_< And just a flat nail polish in one simple color still looks kindda special in my eyes, totally like them now :))) Also I want to say thanQ for ur honest opinion about my new nail shape, really appreciate every single replay to me!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
11pcs Hello Kitty & Snow White Nail Stickers Nail Art Decals
I love water decals a lot! I constantly look for some different decals and always interesting in trying more of them. They are so nice and pretty and flat on the nails! Suitable absolutely for all different cases and nail shapes! Loads of cute perfect designs! 
I hate U stupid blogspot! Why is my pictures always disappearing???
The full set of water decals contains 11 different image sheets. Each one also includes 20 images for each finger of personal image. That should be enough for 2 manicures at least or for matching fingers and toes. Isn't it cool? 
I also found a topic on how to make ur own water decals [HERE] but it's very difficult to carry out such hard work and put it together for me personally and it's easier to buy them. U can found this particular set of water decals on Born Pretty store.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
I've tried quite a few decals from this set and I like them obviously. The only pros for this "product" is they are very thin kindda, and when U top coat make sure the brush is nice and soft to prevent design from smudging. I've ruined 2 manicures only because of this and I used The Face Shop long lasting top coat and I'm gonna move it into another clear nail polish bottle with softer bristles.

Sorry for the bad quality images. Recently the fall showers season started here in Korea and it was cloudy for quite few days and not enough lighting for good pictures.

I've tried my new Barry M nail polish in Blue Moon and it's so pretty color, I like it!
