One old, one new, one borrowed... :)
Chacalaca, the new one, I showed you just few weeks ago, is from the recent Whoom Boom collection. I used it as a base for an amazing Essence's polish, named Glisten up. That's the old one, since Essence chose to discontinue it. I'm sure all of us, familiar with it, wonder why. We all love flakies and glitter, and this polish is exactly that, perhaps sheer, but excellent for layering.
I saw many manicures with Glisten up over plain black polish, so I knew how it looks, that's why I wanted to try it over dark blue base.
Maybe I should have chosen even darker blue, but I like it like this, too.
It looks like a starry night. The true color is a bit darker, since most of the time it's not that sunny outside, as it was when I was taking the picture (sun-hunting, I'm sure you all know how it feels...).
I love the way flakies come to life with every move that I make. This is my first, but surely not last flakie polish. Nfu.Oh's are on my wishlist since I started this blog, but they are too expensive to get here in Croatia, so I'm waiting for a miracle, lottery or a giveaway winning to get them. Sigh...!
On to the great news: I'm three followers away from my first giveaway!!!
I have prepared about 7 polishes for my small giveaway, but who knows what'll come of it in the very moment that I see: 100 followers on my screen...
:) :) :)
I really love giveaways, not only for a chance of winning, but as a way for new, small blogs like mine to be heard of. There are many blogs on my blogroll that ended there because of a giveaway, and remained there because they were so good.
I don't like to follow someone's blog just for the sake of giveaways if I don't like the blog itself, and there are many blogs with 1000 or more followers that have giveaways very often, but I'm not a follower for few reasons.
First, if you're going to have a blog, you should care for your nails, paint them neatly and keep them well shaped and designed. It's not just owning thousands of polishes and all new collections.
Second, I don't like blurry, small or low quality photos. Not all of us have light boxes or expensive cameras (I own a small, old camera, but I try to get as much from it as I can), but if you have a blog your photos should look good.
I would like to express my special admiration for the following blogs, since they really try and keep posting great manicures that I enjoy seeing every day.
Let them have polish
All you desire
Did someone say nail polish?
Nails for fun
Acetone and old lacquer
So, what's the point of my little speech?
I would like to welcome all my new followers that will join me because they like my blog, but if you don't like it, don't follow just for a chance of winning few polishes.
Love to you all!
