FALL 2015 NAIL POLISH♥

Hey guys! How is your weekend so far? I'm preparing for a pampering night-in as we speak! I know, big plans for Saturday night huh? XD Before we start I wanted to let you know about a special category that I'm hosting here for a month. It's about the "Single girl's 30 day challenge". There is a whole new page about it so go and check it out here, because I think you will be interested! Anyway, I don't want to ramble because I'm too excited for today's post.
If you've followed my blog for a while you probably know that I am a nail polish junkie. A makeup junkie in general, but I have a special place in my heart for nail polish! And new season means new shades!
I don't want to start talking about it but, unfortunately, summer has come to an end! In my opinion, we should all keep our memories inside our hearts and move on with our lives. After all, there are plenty of things to be happy about during the fall. New nail polish is one of them. Use the arrows to watch the slideshow on the top and read my caption for each color family^* Enjoy♥

SUBSCRIPTION BOX-BEAUTY TEST BOX MAY 2014

I was always so jealous of all the subscription boxes that bloggers abroad got. So, when I found out that we had some here as well, I had to have it! We have only three right now and I decided to take this one(Beauty Test Box) because it's more personalised. You answer some questions to create your profile so you can get products that you actually want and can use. Because, if I got a cream for wrinkles, that would be a waste of money since I don't have any yet. This box costs 10€. The philosophy behind it, is that you get a box with 5-7 surprise beauty samples(or not so samples) each month so you can try new things and then purchase them if you like them. I wanted to get another one to make a little battle between the boxes, but the other brands were sold out.
 So, yesterday I received mine! A great way to pamper myself between all the overwhelming exams. You can imagine how excited I was! It's like opening a present! It came in a beautiful red box-drawer and this is so great because you can use it to store your makeup or anything you want. All tidy and nicely wrapped, yes I judge from the cover:P It contained a welcoming letter with the descriptions and the prices of the products. So here they are! 
-I'm translating below what was in the letter-
1.REN SCINCARE Moroccan otto Bath Oil-10ml(approx 3,36€)
Bath oil, with delicate scent from the expensive oil of the Moroccan rose, known for it's anti-stress qualities and the sense of harmony it offers.
2. FARDEL Pro make up Powder 3 in 1-4gr(18,50€)
Bronzer face powder 3 in 1. With specialised formula, without Paraben, anti-allergic. With extremely soft, light texture! It can be used as eyeshadow, bronzer on the entire body, on the lips and cheeks! 
 3. ADEN COSMETICS Nail Treatment-11ml(10,50€)
Nail treatment that can be used on bare nail but also as under the nail polish as a base. Visible results after 10 days of use in damages and immediate repair of the nail surface.
 4. AVON Limited Edition Perfume-30ml(35,60€)
Spray perfumes that you close your eyes and they make you travel in other worlds, scents that you link to faces and situations. Collector's packaging.
 5. Jessica Scarlet nail polish 667-7.4ml(approx 5,46€)
Long-lasting-high quality in red. Dries quickly and it's completely friendly to the environment since it doesn't contain toluene, formaldehyde and DBP.
 Generally I was very satisfied with my box mainly because I will use all the products I got. You can tell I need that nail treatment really bad. I liked that 3/5 of the products appear to be full size(maybe the smallest version) but still, all the sizes are decent enough see if I like them. I would prefer to get another polish color like a yellow or a white, since I already have some reds, but I can't complain. I just need to use the products and see how I like them. They all seem to have great quality and all smell really good(especially the perfume!). The nail polish smells nail polish-y but the nail treatment has a great smell! I like that they are eco-friendly and anti-allergic because I wouldn't put just anything on my skin. Who would? I know I'm going to enjoy this box(May's) and I will probably get the June box too!
It really surprised me how quickly this one sold out! The lines for the orders opened at 11am last Wednesday and when I checked again around 5pm it was sold out! And I could tell it was busy at 11 when I was placing my order because I was trying to checkout again and again and it kept showing an error page. I can get why! I don't know if the box is always this good or if I got lucky, but I will try to get some of others too and I will tell you what I think!
If the prices of the letter are accurate the value of box is approx 73,42
Do you guys get any subscription boxes? Which one is your favorite? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!

ESSIE SUMMER 2014

 If you've visited my blog before, you probably know my addiction to lippies and nail polishes. I just need to have more and more and new colors keep coming out. Of course I don't buy all the things I crave, so the only thing I can do is daydream. I'm a big fan of essie nail polishes and their new Summer 2014 and Neons 2014 collections are absolutely addictive. I must admit that I prefer the neons for summer. All the colors are great and I simply can't pick a favorite. The beige(Urban Jungle) from the first collection, is so chic and you can totally wear it all year long. 
The weather is finally warm and sunny here and with the correct accessories(nail polish is an accessory, I've told you before!) you can barely smell the summer approaching. It doesn't matter that we need to stay in the city and do really boring stuff that require hard work. We can always stay in fashion and keep it cool and stylish!
I can work on my blog, read great books, drink cold juices and tea, sketch, hang with friends and you can do all the stuff that make you happy in order to cope easily with your other obligations!
Here are the new Essie eye-candy shades for this summer! Enjoy!
Summer 2014
 (haute in the heat, fierce no fear, roar orange, ruffles and feathers, strut your stuff, urban jungle)

Neons 2014
(i'm addicted, chills and thrills, serial shopper, vices versa, too taboo, sittin pretty)

VIBRANT ORCHID

Have a nice month everyone! Can you believe it's May already? Last month of spring, yet still we haven't tasted spring. Not as much I'd wish to. The weather is so unstable, but we can only hope that May will be warm and, above all, full of happiness and success! There is a lot waiting this month, a lot of stress and a lot of work. And also my birthday! Please May, be good to us...
Since we're talking about spring, is there really anything else that screams spring other than colorful flowers? And more importantly, orchids? Orchid is the color of this year and has always been one of my favorites. It's fresh, it's beautiful and more unexpected than pink(my actual favorite color). It just makes me happy for some reason. Have you ever thought that you could replace deserts with makeup? It just feels so easy when you see all these colorful cosmetics that look as delicious as candy! But you don't eat them so, you feel good, you look good and your thighs will thank you. Maybe I have to try it! I must admit that I was a little hesitant with vibrant orchid lippies, but I've seen them in so many different lips and skin tones that I'm convinced! So, after an extensive search, and after learning more about Pantone, I've made a list with my favorite orchid makeup products for 2014. As always, I have chosen both expensive and more affordable ones. There are many more brands, and many more products that could be here, but I felt I should reduce the list a little. Also, I couldn't find decent photos for some of them. You'll probably notice that I went a little crazy with the lip and nail products, but it's a fact: you can never have enough lippies and nail polishes! At least, I can't! I guess there's nothing left to say, only that I love them all so much! I hope you do too, enjoy!
What do you guys think of orchid makeup? Are you a big fan of the color of the year? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!
