Bright Pink Summer Nails

I'm loving colours!!! especially for this summer where bright colours
 in make up have taken a huge part this year... 
One of the favourite place to play with colours are NAILS, 
never like this summer I'm playing around with colours

today I picked a very bright pink

Like this shade by Chresy



then, as usual I have applied a coat of glitter on my ring fingers
and for doing that I have used a topper by Essence


Nail art Special effect! I LOVE IT :)


this is the final look....what do you think?

My Outfit of the day

Nails Inc.Eaton Square

This is a perfect shade for summer, so bright and positive I love it.
The Nails Inc. nail polish are an amazing brand from the UK the quality of this nail polish is unbelievable, this one Eaton Square for example I have bought it back in 2007 (as you can see from the lid) but even though it has nearly 5 years it is still work as new :)




Then to add a bit more fun, I added one coat on my ring fingers of this glittery nail polish by Astra





For the summer this colour is amazing.. it makes your tan even more darker...
so cool also on the toes!

Astra Nail Polish Blue Jeans

After a few days Yellow I decided to get my nails a more "normal" colour, so then I went and try my Astra Nail Polish that I got only recently for only 2,50 euro.
This nail polish is from the new Astra Collection called Italian Romantic Smalti (which in English means Nail polish). 
As you can see on Astra website (Link) they came out with a huge variety of colours,
The one I'm wearing today is n. 10 Blue Jeans.
I love this nail polish it is so creamy and and with 2 coats you get an amazing result.
 Definitively I'm going to go back and get some more shades, there are so many... irresistible!


Italian Romantic Smalti shade n. 10 Blue Jeans



I also applied a coat of  Astra Topcoat



Then to make it more fun, on my ring fingers I have applied a coat (maybe two) 
of this fun nail art Glitter Topper by Essence



This is how it looks




Hope you like it

Birthday!!

Alright, this is "that" time of the year that you cannot stop.
Birthday time isnt anymore like it was 10 (or even worse, 20yrs ago)
but as they say "be friend with your enemies", so I'm willing from this year on to get friendly with My Birthday.. without getting too depressed. 
PS. I still feel like I was 19 :)
and this is all it matters.................(almost)

Bright Look BeautyUK before hairdresser

Sinfulcolors Nail Polish

I only own one colour from the Sinfulcolors Professional and the name is INNOCENT 944 and as you can see it is a vibrant cream acid green. I really love it and it is a perfect shade for the summer.
I only paid for this 4,50 euro, but i totally recommend you to check this brand out they do a lot of different shades. 


here you can see with 2 coats of it



 the finish of the polish is naturally glossy



then I decided to apply a coat of a matte topcoat by Rimmel



to make it more fun :)



I love this colour either ways!
