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.

20+ WAYS TO WEAR A TARTAN BLAZER FOR COLD WEATHER

Tartan is a true classic if you ask me. If you are a fan of this pattern, you might enjoy this post. Today I'll show you 20 plus ways to style a green tartan blazer for cold weather, starting with how I wore this green tartan blazer a few days ago. It was such a lovely day! Don't you just love those sunny winter days? I always feel better when it is sunny, even when it's a bit cold. On this particular sunny day, I decided to wear my tartan blazer. I wore two layers under it and topped it with a faux fur stole, so I was feeling quite warm and cozy. I paired it with a dusty pink skirt and a very comfy (and old) pair of brown heeled boots. 

Anyhow, when I went on this sunny stroll with a colleague of mine, she complimented me on this green tartan blazer. That made me reflect on how many times I have worn  this tartan blazer. While I didn't keep a written record and cannot give you a precise number, I can tell you that this green blazer is one of the most worn items in my …

VISITING BASINA BAY ON ISLAND HVAR, CROATIA

Weekends are a great time to get proactive about our health and use our free time to go hiking & trekking. Spending time outdoors is quite beneficial for our health. I have written about this topic a number of times on my blog. Those of you who are regular readers know that I like nothing better than exploring the area I live in on foot. Hiking can be such a healthy and inspirational activity and the best thing is that it doesn't cost a thing. Since I have been living on island Hvar these past few months, I have tried to take every opportunity to explore this magical island. Recently I have discovered bay Basina. It is a small bay, very close to Vrboska  and Jelsa. This was my first visit to this beautiful bay. I discovered it quite by chance. Island Hvar has so many amazing beaches and secluded bays to offer. Despite spending most of my summers here, I still have so much to discover.  Basina bay is a beautiful place, no doubt about it. There are so many beautiful bays on isl…

READING UPDATE: KAZUO ISHIGURO, THE BURIED GIANT AND MORE

Hello dear readers, how's life treating you? It's time for another reading update on my blog. You guys know that I'm a bookworm and a reading addict, right? Today I have a couple of book reviews to share with you. I'll be reviewing four books (more precisely: two novels and two short story collections). It's a mixed crowd of writers that I'm reviewing, from Nobel winning Kazuo Ishiguro to some other well known authors. So, let's get started. Scroll down to read my opinion of these books.  THE BURIED GIANT, A NOVEL BY KAZUO ISHIGURO 5/5 Having seen a fascinating interview with mr. Ishiguro about this very book, I had high expectations for The Buried Giant. I'm happy to report that my expectations were fulfilled. Once again, Kazuo Ishiguro impressed me his subtle and beautiful writing. This novel is a masterpiece. The Buried Giant is very moving tale of an elderly couple in search for their lost past. Axl and Beatrix share a strong connection, but just lik…
