China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic

Hi all!

First up I want to say sorry about my posts being in English only the last couple of weeks.. I really want to do them both in Dutch as in English but I simply don't have the time to write my posts in two languages since I started working so I hope you'll forgive me for that. I'll do my best to squeeze in some Dutch sentences tomorrow! I have to get used to working four days a week again and to be honest; it's exhausting.

Anyway, on to the polish! I bought this one at Enchantra about a week ago and I certainly don't regret it! It's China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic from the 2008 Rodeo Diva Collection.

China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic, three coats in day light and sunlight. Rodeo Fanatic appears to be a blue shimmer with a touch of frost, but don't let my pictures fool you! Rodeo Fanatic has more green to herself irl but my camera just didn't want to pick it up.. So imagine this with a touch of green to it to make it like a peacock green. She is Models Own Peacock's older sister. I really love this color! I don't own anything like it..

Application was good. The polish wasn't watery at all and I could have done two coats for opacity - but I did three to eliminate VNL in pictures. Drying time was great! I was surprised how quickly the polish dried so I don't have any complaints with this one. I planned on swatching it only for now, but I'm actually wearing this as a full manicure because the polish is so pretty..

Thanks for stopping by!

Illamasqua Body Electrics Collection (Summer 2010) Preview

I have been raving about Illamasqua in the past and this month we all have another reason for that. They are launching a brand new summer collection next weekend, so let´s have a look at what is coming. I have to say that I am really curious about the polishes (would be strange if I wouldn´t), but also about the palette, liquid metal and the illumine oils. I am so excited! What about you?

Nad značkou Illamasqua jsem se už v minulosti roplývala. Tenhle měsíc k tomu bdeme mít všichni další důvod. Příští víkend vyjde jejich nová kolekce, tak se pojďme mrknout na to, co nás čeká. Musím se přiznat, že jsem moc zvědavá na laky (bylo by divné, kdybych nebyla), ale taky na tu paletku, liquid metal a rozjasňující olejíčky. Jsem na ně moc zvědavá! A co vy?
