Colorama maybeline polka dots (nail-polish review/ recenzija laka za nokte)









' Besides, Pavao Petrovic was decieving himself. His love was not childish and there were times when he admitted it himself.' Janko Leskovar, Doomed courts
"Uostalom, Pavao Petrović varao je sam sebe. Ona njegova ljubav uistinu ne bijaše djetinjarija, a bilo je časova kada to on i sam priznavaše." Janko Leskovar, Propali dvori
Who doesn't like polka dots? Not me. Therefore,  it comes to as no surprise that I really like this Maybelline nail-polish. Besides the fact that it provides you with plenty of polka dots on your nails, you get them in different colours...and this shade of green reminds me of the sea, there is almost a mermaid feeling about it.

The only downside to Colorama nail-polishes is that they don't stay on for very long. They're affordable and have great shades but they don't stay on for long (one day in my case, but I do a lot of housework, cooking and cleaning) . I've bought this one together with a pink one on a discount in DM and both of them cost me  1.50 euros. One more thing, their formula is quite watery so if you take care how you apply it and avoid thick layers it should last longer. One coat is definitely not enough, with just one they're transparent and look a bit messy.

The quote is there because I'm currently going trough Leskovar phrase. You probably wouldn't have heard about. Anyway, I'm rereading everything he has ever written as well as his entire life correspondence.

Tko ne voli točkice? Meni su uvijek drage, pa ne čudi da me oduševio ovaj Maybelline lak za nokte. Dobijete puno točkica na noktima (i to u raznim bojama), a ova nijansa zelene me podsjeća na more...i nekako mi je pomalo sirenska, ako postoji nešto takvo kao sirenska boja. 

Jedini nedostatak colorama lakova je da ne stoje na noktima dugo (samo jedan dan po mome iskustvu, ali ja dosta kuham i čistim po kući pa je vrijeme trajanja laka na mojim noktima svakako malo kraće). Kupila sam lak u Dm-u, a na popustu je bio marku i pol, a uzela sam još jedan rozi. Još nešto, njihova formula je vodenasta pa ako pazite kako ga nanosite trebao bi trajati duže. Jedan premaz nije dovoljan, izgleda  proziran i pomalo neuredno.

Citat je tu jer trenutno prolazim kroz Leskovar fazu. Ponovo čitam sve što je napisao kao i sva njegova pisma.

  4. Oh so true, the color reminds me of the sea too. I like polka dots but in moderation. This is very pretty and neatly applied. Well done.

  10. What a pity that this cool nail polish doesn´t stay look because it looks indeed great! This is namely my demand for nailpolish that it should last long caused by the homework I do constantly :)

    And no, so sorry, I haven't heard about what you are reading ...

  12. Inače ne volim Coloramu baš iz tog razloga što ga treba nanijeti tri-četiri puta da bi se išta vidjelo. Ali boje su im krasne. Ovu još nisam probala, a baš bih mogla! Super su mi te točkice. I slažem se, boja jest pomalo sirenska. :))

    Inače, super blog!

  16. Kupila sam ovaj lak prije nekoliko mjeseci, zaista je divan ali se tesko skida :) Meni Colorama traje od tri do 5 dana na noktima (i duze ako nanesem jedan sloj bezbojnog laka preko), ali ja cisti i perem sa rukavicama! x

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.
