I have been packing those suitcases (my laptop bag is still missing there) and by the time this post goes online I'll probably be crossing the German-Austrian border on my way through the north of Italy towards Siena. First stop will be Verona, on Friday a beach day was planned, but as it was ruined by the upcoming rainy weather (it will rain only on those last days with my family!), we'll have to find something else to do before we arrive in Siena on Friday evening.

I don't know whether the hotels have free internet access (they should, but they're small, so who knows), in the worst case I'll be back online on Sunday. Also I don't know how fast I can find someone who'll take pictures for the blog. Maybe I'm lucky and my roommate is a hobby photographer :)

Anyways, I have an interesting project planned and I'm curious myself how it will turn out, so stay tuned and see you soon!

In case you're interested in some instant information from me:


OPI - Did It On 'Em

>> 2012/08/23

Today I have this "barf yellow" polish for you, from OPI's Nicki Minaj themed mini collection. I was actually going for "Gargantuan Green Grape", but it was sold out. My second option was this kind of yellow-ish green and I hoped the store I ordered my OPIs at had "Who the Shrek Are You?"... And guess what? They didn't, at all. And so I came to order that quite unusual color - it's awesome!

Formula - perfect. I needed only two coats because the streakiness melted away within seconds. Unfortunately I couldn't test out its durability, as I ruined it on the same day with some mint green glitter topcoat...

Here it's next to Ghina Glaze "Happy Go Lucky", where you can see the diference between "Did It On 'Em" and a true yellow (because that China Glaze is as yellow as yellow can be).

I think about making it greener with a drop of turquoise green. What do you think? Would you wear that color?

Almost Lost

>> 2012/08/19

I cleaned out the memory card of the camera and found pictures I totally forgot about. I remember the weather on that day being especially annoying - windy and bright sunlight was going on and off, because the wind kept chasing the clouds.

In two weeks I'll be writing from Siena, incredible! Currently I'm shopping for things I need and just by the way I buy lots of stuff I don't need... Isn't that what happens most of the time?



Honestly... have a look! (Link)

>> 2012/08/15

I found this website - Honestly... wtf - through StumbleUpon. It's an amazing site to get inspiration with lots of photography, art news etc. But what I fell for was Erica's  DIY section (in the screenshot). Maybe you want to go for a really unique statement necklace? I'm definitely going to try out those braided bead bracelets. And for those willing to make a real mess: ombre denim! Something else than the typical "shirt collar necklace" I seem to see on every DIY blog I open.


Neon Shorts

>> 2012/08/12

Long time since I last posted a look of my own. Unfortunately that doesn't depend on me solely, I also need someone to take the pictures. But today I finally got to wear out my new neon shorts and new glitter sandals (they came in one package). And this necklace featuring silhouettes of Russian dolls perfectly fit into there!
Also I in summer rush I raided some accessory racks and found two sets of multiple thin bracelets made of differently sized and shaped wooden beads, one green/brown and the other one purple/pink/brown, at the Bijou Brigitte store. Their accessories are good quality and affordable.

But now it's really time to pack. So hard to think of winter time, when you can still wear shorts and sandals outside...

OPI I Eat Mainely Lobster vs. essie Cute As A Button

>> 2012/08/06

OPI - essie - OPI - essie

Just as I promised - a comparison of OPI I Eat Manely Lobster that I presented yesterday and essie Cute As A Button. The two look very similar in the bottle (see below), but the difference was obvious right after I applied the first coat.


OPI - I Eat Mainely Lobster

>> 2012/08/05

Coral has been one of my favorite colors this season, but this is actually the second time I wear this polish since I got it in January.
I Eat Mainely Lobster is from last year's fall collection - Touring America - and it's a deep, beautiful coral with tiny gold particles. At least in the bottle. Do you see any on my nails? Although in bright sunlight it shimmers subtly.

You have to imagine the color a bit darker and more saturated than it looks on the pics. I tried to edit the photos to be closer to the original, but that's still not enough.

When my package with it arrived I was a bit disappointed seeing that this polish is very very similar to essie's Cute As A Button. I will compare the two for you.
