OOTD for my name day :)

Hello ladies...hope you are having a wonderful weekend :) It was my name day on Friday (for my other than Slovakian readers - we celebrate this day in Slovakia and it means that each day of the year has given name in the calendar and mine was 27.5.) It has less importance than birthday, but we still get presents (I got a lovely handbag which I'll show you in some future post) and celebrate it! I didn't plan any celebration this year, but my husband thought we should go out for a drink.... and so this was my outfit of the day (night):

please note a bunch of roses from my husband in the background :)

 Blazer: Zara, top: Gap, jeans: Levi's, shoes and handbag: New Look, earings: Primark

I wore very natural make up... My original plan was to wear very bright coral lips but once I've done the eyes, I decided to do matching nude lips. 

Estee Lauder - Double wear light shade 2 (this is my fav foundation at the moment)
Collection 2000 concealer shade 2 (great drugstore product!)
Benefit High Beam for cheeks highlight
Soleil Tan De Chanel to contour
Sleek Rose Gold on my cheeks
Clinique blended face powder (04 transparency 4 (M) )

Mac Vanilla pigment on the lid
Mac Melon pigment above the crease
UD Naked Palette - Naked e/s in the crease
Clinique Gel eyeliner in black
Mac Vanilla e/s inner corner
Max Factor false lash effect mascara

No7 Nude lip liner
Mac Sandy B lipstick
Estee Lauder Pure Color Sugar Rush lipgloss

I'm in ♥ with Essie - Merino Cool

Hello everyone! :) I got this nail polish about a month ago and tried it straight away, but I didn't have time to post the pictures. So there you go, I'm wearing 2 coats and top coat:

I always wanted to try China Glaze Millenium for stamping as it looked amazing on the pictures I've seen so far. Finally I ordered it from Beverly Beaute website, but unfortunately they've sent me wrong color without label. I'm only guessing it's China Glaze Robotika as it looks very similar. So I've emailed them and they apologized for the error and refunded money back to my account... yay :) I thought I order Millenium again but then I tried the one they've sent me and I really like it. I've never stamped my nails so quickly and without any errors! This polish is so perfect for stamping. I've received a lot of nice comments on this mani  at work today which really motivates me to continue with my obsession :))

Essie - Demure Vixen


Hello my lovely readers :) Today I've got another swatch for you of this lovely Essie polish - Demure Vixen. It's from 2010 spring collection and it's very pretty neutral colour. I've only got a mini version, but I'm really thinking of buying the full size bottle as I love this colour :) I'm wearing 2 coats + top coat.

My new Essence polishes

Hello ladies :) As promised in my last post here are some Essence polishes I've bought recently. This is my first experience with Essence and I must say that for very reasonable price you get pretty nice polish :) The coverage is great but the application was a bit tricky because of it's thick consistency. But overall I'm happy with the purchase :)
The first one is a pretty lime green colour. I bought a small 5ml version and there is no name printed on the bottle..... but you'll get a point from the picture :)

And with one coat of Barry M - Instant Nail Effects white:

Essence - Just Shout! - nice coral color, very wearable and perfect for summer :)

Sorry for my laziness - I've not cleaned my nails ;)

You may have noticed that my middle finger nail on the left hand is a bit thicker. Yes, I've had a layer of gel applied as I had a crack on it :( Hopefully it'll grow out soon :)

Barry M - Mint Green

Hello my dear readers.... after a little break I'm back again and I'm sorry for lack of posting lately. I've been taking pictures of all the manis I was wearing so I'll try to post the swatches shortly :) I was back home in Slovakia and finally bought some Essence polishes as well... I can't wait to try them on. Meanwhile, have a look at Barry M - Mint Green polish. I must admit I was wearing it for about half a day only... the aplication was great - typical for Barry M :)
