April’s favorites

Hello Beauties.

(Greek version here)

Here I am again, starting with the April’s favorites.

I haven’t done any monthly favorites yet, so I am gonna start now, doing them each month.

Let’s see which those are..

Elf Eyebrow kit – Dark

The infamous – and loved already, kit. There is no single day that I don’t use it, since my eyebrows without it are not presentable. They look like … dizigomatic twins. Yeap, totaly different

 

Tommy G long wear foundation #1

Its a Greek brand foundation. One of my favorites. It covers, without making me being oily, and fits my color very much. I have a big problem finding the exact shade (and so light foundation), with the correct undertones, so it doesn’t seem that awful on me. It has a BIG minus, which is the pump, but I will probably do a seperate review/swatch about that.(It looks better on my face. Lol)

 

Dior Show – Iconic / black

I recently rediscover this Mascara, so I though ”Let’s try it”. Its not as good as Stilleto (Maybelline) for my lashes at least, which keeps my lashes curly, but it seperates them very well, and makes them ”stand out”..

Gel eyeliner essence – black

I think everyone knows this eyeliner. Very stable, almost waterproof, and I use a Greek-brand (Toyoko, yeah with Japanese name) brush.. Great.

Garnier essentials wipes.

They do exactly what they have to. Clean and moisturize. I have a dry skin, and I rarely find the perfect wipes. They will either clean, or moisturize. Not both.

Νyx round lipstick – perfect (the name of the shade)

A MLBB nude color, to the brown side. Its suitable for end-of-winter/spring time, especially for people that don’t try ”bright” colors (like me)

 

Nail polish from seventeen (Greek brand) – 40

I love it ♥

A peachy-to-pinky side  color, which is superfantastic.

You are going to love it. Its MUST for spring and summer. If you want, I will make an NOTD with that. And even if you don’t want. 😛

 

Last but not least, and tottaly irrelevant…

A pair of earrings I bought..

Aren’t they lovely?

That’s for now!

Bye dolls

Love

Magnetic Nail Polish : Imagnet by Tommy G

Hello there!
Long time no post, and long time no nail post so it’s about time…
Before swatching it, a small welcome/thank you note to my new – Greek followers

” Καλως ήρθατε στο blog μου ! Χαίρομαι πολύ που βρήκα πολλές Ελληνίδες  bloggers, που μοιράζονται την ίδια τρέλα με μένα…Να’ναι καλά το Greek Beauty Bloggers :)..

Προς το παρόν γράφω μόνο στα αγγλικά, έαν κάποια θέλει να γράφω και ελληνικά, θα το τολμήσω…

Σας ευχαριστώ πολύ και πάλι…”

And now I introduce you .. the magnetic nail polish

Imagnet art, by Tommy G.

….A little info about Tommy G.

Again, Tommy G is a Greek brand producted within EU. It’s part of a bigger company that produces some more cosmetics . You can find their English website here.

I like their nail polishes a lot, and I love  the Keratin base coat, which made my nails hard as rock 🙂  (their sub-brand layla has also very nice nail polishes that last a lot to my nails)


Now, the Imagnet …

(Right-Click + View image  to see them full-size)

I have purchase the nail polish in 2 colors (so far). Silver/grey and burgundy/pink. How the nail is going to look is that the cap , and its pretty accurate, I must say…

 

The secret lies not only in the ingridients of the nail polish (I guess), but also at the magnet in the top of the cap. The shape you are going to have is depended on how you ll hold the cap…

Enough with the theory now… Let’s see it in action….

For start, I applied ”Nail envy” from OPI as a base coat to my ugly looking nails…

 

I put one layer (you can add more if you want) of the magnetic nail laquer and immidiately (before it starts drying), I put the magnet as shown in the picture. The direction that the ”line” of the magnet has, determines the pattern…

As you can see, before having the magnet THAT close to the nail, is simply a nail polish. A metallic nail polish (of course you can wear it just like that, but I find it pointless to use this polish for the wrong reasons..anyway…)

Here are the  angles I tried to some of my nails…

You can do more ”complicated” nail art, by painting your nail in steps, like I did.. (Clumsily, I must admit)

I decided to make to make the simple sided pattern, so here is the final look :

I think they look very nice (the final look, not my awfully looking hands with the tones of cuticles there). Its a very unique result, with no effort, that costs around 7€.

What do you think?

See you soon.

Lots of Love

V.
