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.

KAFKA ON THE SHORE, A NOVEL BY HARUKI MURAKAMI (BOOK REVIEW & OUTFIT PROPOSAL)

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today.

THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ BY L.FRANK BAUM (BOOK REVIEW)

Today I'll review a true classic of children's literature: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a book by L. Frank Baum. I have read this book fairly recently, so it is still fresh in my mind. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I actually enjoyed it a lot, so my book review is also  a book recommendation.  This classic of children literature is such a well rounded tale. You can read The  Wonderful Wizard of Oz for free on the pages of project Gutenberg here (that's also the source for the quotes I'm going to use).

First, a few words from the author himself:  Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersen have brought more happiness to childish hearts than all other human creations.Yet the old time fairy tale, having served for generations, m…

STYLING A PLEATED SKIRT FOR COLD WEATHER + READING UPDATE

Pleated items are very in right now. Every fashionista who likes this material is probably over the moon about that and even those who don't follow trends must be satisfied when a material they like becomes more available. I'm quite happy because I do appreciate the way pleat adds texture to our outfits. This expensive looking trend can be surprisingly affordable, especially if you're good at shopping second hand or just finding good discounts. Pleated items are simply perfectly for creating romantic, elegant and even whimsical outfits.  Pleat can even make old school glam seem easy!
Pleated items come in many shapes and form. I personally have a shirt I adore. However, perhaps the most practical incarnation of the pleated trend (for us ladies that is) would be the pleated skirt. A pleated maxi or midi skirt is such an easy way to add some femininity, texture and chic into your wardrobe. Today I'll show you how to style a beige pleated skirt for cold weather. Now, thi…
