NOTD: Christmas "work" nails ;)

Hello everyone!

 Short post for you today :) Finally, after a long time a NOTD post :) Today before work I kinda got up really early so I had time to do my nails :) I used Dior Vernis in shade  704 Nirvana and on top I used Catrice Nail Lacquer 41 Two Million Dollar Baby. I used one coat of the base colour and than one coat of the glitter top coat. I only used it on two nails per hand, because I was kinda afraid it will be too shiny, too glittery for work. Also, I was expecting complications with the topper and chipping, but so far so good. Lasted the day just fine :) Also used Depend Multipolish topper to seal the deal :) What do you think? I love the Dior one, it's perfect shade for Christmas, a great alternative to the usual reddish manicures ;)

Thanks for reading!

Love, UniqaPoly

Preview: Catrice - Lash Flash LE

Hey there again! Yes, I have another preview that I want to share... this time it's again Catrice, but this one is prefect for anyone who loves a good lashy look ;)

What Catrice team has to say:" Eyes wide open! A glance at the international fashion shows reveals: the fashion trends of the Spring/Summer season 2014 are extremely diverse and range from androgynous grunge influences to the feminine looks of the 1960’s. No matter what the style, one beauty detail stands out: lashes with an XXL look. Impressive, sweeping lashes are this season’s ultimate must-have. More density. More volume. More length. With false lashes, this look is quick and easy to achieve. They are therefore increasingly becoming a part of daily make-up routines. The new Limited Edition “Lash Flash” by CATRICE, which will be available in stores from mid January to February 2014, is all about fabulous lashes.  A large selection ranging from natural-looking single lashes to expressive lash designs offers something to suit every style. A practical black glue and the Ultimate Lash Multimizer Volume Mascara in three different versions are further highlights of this extravagant and limited edition."

. “Lash Flash” by CATRICE will be available in stores from mid January to February 2014. Afterwards, the Single Lashes, the Classical Volume Lashes and all three versions of the Ultimate Lash Multimizer Volume Mascara will be joining the standard CATRICE range. 

False lashesThe false lashes in this limited collection are available in six different styles. Depending on your type and the occasion, you’ve got a choice of natural-looking single lashes, a classic eyelash band as well as extraordinary designs including expressive fans and XXL creations. The lashes are kept safe thanks to the practical slide packaging, so you can take them along wherever you go and they are even re-usable. Available in C01 Extravagant Volume Lashes, C02 Delicate Extension Lashes, C03 Maximized Expression Lashes, C04 Stunning Lengthening Lashes, C05 Single Lashes and C06 Classical Volume Lashes. 

Black Lash GlueThe black glue is perfectly aligned with the lashes in this limited edition and enhances the dense, XXL-lash effect with plenty of volume thanks to its dark colour. Apply glue on the band of the false lashes, leave to dry a few seconds, place on lashline and wait a moment. This look is sure to last all day and will survive a wild night of partying, too.

MascaraLarge elastomer brushes are the trend as they capture more mascara and professionally separate your lashes, too. The result: an accurate application for spectacular volume with a multiplying factor. The mascara can also be applied on false lashes to enhance their effect. No clumping. The large, conic packaging in an elegant matt black with an eye-catching colour print reveals that there are two versions of this wonderful mascara coming on the market: Black and Ultra Black.

My Opinion - I would love to get my hands on some of these false lashes. Especially the ones in the whole strip, not single ones... They look so pretty now. I only hope that the glue will actually be good. Any recommendations about the glue? Which one to buy? I already have single lashes by Catrice with added glue but they never seem to actually stick to my eyes....
You like this one?

Preview: Catrice - "LaLa Berlin Loves CATRICE"/ "It Pieces" LE

Hello everyone! Looks like December is a month full of previews :) Today I have another one for you, by Catrice. This "It Pieces" limited edition will be available in stores from mid January to February 2014. The products will be joining the standrad Catrice range later in the year. :)

What Catrice team has to say about it: " Fashion meets Beauty. The trends for 2014 were born at the international fashion shows. Now it’s time for the run on the It Pieces to begin! Must-haves in bright coral and intensive red-orange add a fresh touch to the upcoming looks for spring. Fine summer knits, exotic prints and multifaceted patterns are trendier than ever. In keeping with the eye-catchers of the fashion world, you can now look forward to the Limited Edition “It Pieces” by CATRICE, which will be available in stores from mid January to February 2014. Highlights include the Sun Glow Shimmering Bronzing Powder for a flawless complexion, the Defining Blush for a hint of colour as well as the innovative Made To Stay Smoothing Lip Polish – a hybrid with the intensity of a lipstick, the durability of a lip stain and the shine of a lip-gloss. Beauty and Fashion – a perfect match by CATRICE."

Absolute Eye Colour Quattro - Four matching rose shades. The delicate gradation of colours allows subtle blending and wonderfully natural shading. The soft shimmer pigments visibly open your eyes for a wide-awake and bright look. Available in C100 F’rosen Yoghurt.

Bronzing powderThe pressed, velvety-soft powder with fine shimmer pigments ensures a radiant, fresh complexion. The 3D embossment with a zigzag design not only creates a visual highlight, the two shades also blend together perfectly. Available in C010 Shimmering Bronze. 

Defining BlushThe ultra-fine blush with vitamin E ingredients is easy to blend, emphasises your cheekbones and creates perfect contours on your face. Bright pink-coral gives your cheeks a naturally fresh look. Available in C040 Think Pink.

Ultimate Lip ColourIts ultra-smooth and long-lasting texture pampers your lips with a creamy finish and high coverage. Make a statement with the bright colour versions in hip pink-coral and red-orange. Available in C320 Kiss Kiss Hibiscus and C330 The Lips Are On Fire.

Smoothing Lip PolishHybrid Highlight. Three benefits in one product: the colour of a lipstick, the durability of a lip stain and the shine of a lip-gloss. Three shades including soft nude, rosé and poppy pink guarantee a pure burst of colour. The extra-soft flock applicator ensures an accurate application. The result: unique, brilliant colours that feel wonderfully pleasant on your lips and won’t dry them out. No sticky sensation. Available in C010 Rose-wood If She Could, C020 Jen & Berry’s and C050 Megan Fuchsia.

Crushed Crystals3D effects are the nail design trend and there’s no stopping them! The Crushed Crystals offer a brilliant sandy finish, colours with high coverage and come in three fashionable versions: multicolour, silver and coral. The fine crystals cover your nails like diamond dust and create an incomparable structure. Available in C04 Oyster & Champagne, C05 Stardust and C06 Call Me Princess. 

My Opinion - I would love to get my hands on the smoothing lip products, they look really interesting. I hope the shades won't be too creamy and too light for me. Also the nail polishes seem really nice, especially the silvery-grey one. The eyeshadows are pretty, but I already have a lot of shades like that. The bronzing powder is also a maybe, probably before summer... :) What about you? See anything you like?

Single lashes - The false single lashes in the three eye-catching colors black, green and orange are the ultimate it-pieces of this collection. They set cool highlights – placed on the outer edges, between your lashes or all over! One set contains 40 single lashes including lash glue.

My Opinion - I love love love the blush! I want it! The packaging, the colour, the desing - everything about it is just perfect! Also I really like the duo lip cream in the darker, redder shade. I hope to get my hnads on these two products! The rest I don't find appealing much.. maybe the single lashes, but I have bad experinces with applying them .. so I just don't use them.. I like they ae in different shades, a nice twist to regular false lashes. :) What do you think? See anything you like?

NEW in November :)

 Hello December! Today's post is as expected  - what was new in November :) I have a little less products this month, I was trying to save some money and also save it for Christmas shopping :) Also in December a lot of brands have discounts and such and it's worth to wait a bit :) Plus, the amount of make up I already have doesn't let me buy any more, I have to test and swatch so many things...

So let's start with a list of all things new:
- Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup 130 Shell
- Revlon Lip Butter in 063 Wild Watermelon and 096 Macaroon
- MicroCell 2000 Nail repair 
- Deborah Milano Red, shade 2
- MaxFactor, Colour Elixir  630 Eternal flame
- Alverde, Mineral Blush Pearls in shade 10 Fantastic Toffee
- Alverde, Beauty&Fruity,  mattifying face cream with lime and apple
- Alverde, Bodybutter Christmas set
- JOHN FRIEDA, Full Repair deep infusion treatment for hair

I want to start with my favourite part of the month - lipsticks! I got the Revlon lip butters with a little bit of discount, so I don't feel so bad getting them, but I really hope to use them some more. I got myself two new shades, 096 Macaroon and 063 Wild Watermelon :) These two make my list of lip butters up to number seven! I'm really getting proud of my collection of lipsticks, and I want to make a series of posts presenting all of them :) I was thinking something like " Lipstick of the week", something like that :) I know it's nothing new, but I really have to share these wonderful lippies with all of you :) Also I got two other lipstick this month, one is by Deborah, Milano Red collection, but doesn't have a name, only a number, shade 2. The other shade I got is by MaxFactor, also ColorElixir range, shade 630 Eternal flame. To see the shades check the photos below for some swatches ;) I got both of these by second hand, so I didn't spend a lot of money on them ;)

L to R: Revlon Wild Watermelon, Revlon Macaroon, MaxFactor Eternal  Flame, Deborah shade 2

Next are products for face :) I got myself my second bottle of Nearly Naked foundation in shade Shell :) I have been using this almost every day for the last couple of months. Let's say I had a bottle from May until now... and I really used it like at least 6 times per week :) I love this foundation and I simply had to repurchase, because no matter how many other BB creams or foundations I have at home, I always go for this one :P I will write a proper review on this one, it's a really amazing product ;) Also, I got myself a little pot of blush pearls, by Alverde. they were on sale, a bit less than 2e, so I said why not. I love the browny natural toned combination and I wantd to see whether or not could I use it as a bronzer. So far so good, I used it a couple of times in combination with a more natural make up look on eyes and it's quite a good product :)

Next are two repair products, one is for nails, MicroCell 200 nail repair, which I hope will help me put my nails back to  a better state. I have a lot of problems with my nails lately, and with winter time they seem to be even worse. I hope this will do what it promises, will see in a week or so. You are supposed to have it on for  tow- three weeks, will see how it works for me.

Second is a product by John Frieda, a repair product for hair, a transparent liquid infusion. I hope it will help me keep my hair ends from spliting, will see.. I used it twice up to now and so far so good :) I got this one as a "CHIC ambasadorka" of November, I will write a review here, both in Slovene and English ;)

I got this set of three body butters by Alverde for myself at first, and I loved the scent of these three so I actually both the second one too, for a gift ;) You get three different body butters, each packaged in 50 ml container:) Currently I'm using the one with cranberry chocolate scent and I love it! you also get inside one with vanilla and cinnamon and one with aroma of baked apples ;) Perfect Christmas scents :)

Another product from Alverde I bought at the end of the month is this face cream with lime and apples. I haven't tried it yet, but I hope it's good :) It's supposed to be for normal to mixed skin, and my skin tends to be a bit on the greasy side, but in winter I need a little something more rich to care for my skin :)

And to finish off my post - I have some new jewelry, but none was made by me ... I have little time for creating lately, unfortunately. I got the bracelet at DM store, the big green earrings at Muller store and the smaller, brighter earrings second hand ;)

And this is it! Thanks for reading and visiting my blog! :) Please leave a comment if you wish for me to try review a certain product sooner :)

P.S. - Don't forget - giveaway is just one post away! ;)

Love, UniqaPoly
