Hard Jelly- My Favorite!

Good evening! this post is about my favorite nail polish finish: Hard Jelly.

An oxymore i choosed to describe myself polishes that have the characteristic i love the most in polish besides color, obvious...

A hard jelly to me is the polish that whereas having a BOLD color payoff, has a translucency to it, a glossy finish and a gooey texture.

I loooooove this finish, is my favorite of all, the second one is the "Sparkle", hello Zoya.
Examples of hard jellies are: Essence "The world's coolest" (shown above), Essence "Fatal", Essie "Bordeaux", Essie "Limited Adiction", Catrice Glamourama "Glamourista", Zoya "Stacy", NFU OH "569", Miss Marion "Royal Red".

I don't consider Opi "Vodka and Caviar" as a hard jelly, because it doesn't have a bold color payoff, and odd enough my favorite polish to date (maybe forever, who knows?) is not a hard jelly: China Glaze "Ruby Pumps"; it is a glitter finish not even the "sparkle" one.

I'm waiting for my minis from "The winter collection" by Essie, i think some of them are hard jellies too, it seems that in my stash Essie is the queen of hard jellies.

I have many new gorgeous colors to do my nails with, but i cannot resist a red, and this is a vampy too! jelly-ish finish, good at 2 coats with great shine, but i always put top coat on.

Tengo muchos nuevos esmaltes que utilizar, pero para mi es tan dificil resistir al rojo, y este que es bien obscuro, con acabado algo gelatinoso que me gusta tanto.

おはよう。 今週 いそがしかった です、 でも この 暗い と きれいな 緑が あります から、いま よく です。

Nonostante abbia diversi nuovi smalti da usare, ho scelto questo rosso scurissimo, non riesco dire no al rosso!, in piu é cosi laccato, ma comunque metto sempre lo smalto lucidante.

J'ai nombreux nouveaus vernis a utiliser, mais pour moi c'est vraiment difficile dire no a un rouge, et celui est bien foncé et laqué.

Pink Parka to the Heat!!!

This is the manicure i’ll be rocking during my flight tomorrow and for a few days after my arrival in my beloved country.

Anyway, i’ll be in pause until december.

Got recently many new Zoyas but cannot wear and post them till i’m back, but i like them all!!!

In my country is hot all year long, and when i'll get back here in Switzerland, OMG!, winter is gonna be in full bloom…i will suffer so much, ‘cause chill and i don’t get along pretty well.

I hope you all have a nice time, and check back soon.

おはよう。 ニオン マニキューア です。

あした わたしの かえります、とても 幸せ です。

そこに いち がつ います。

くには いま あつい です そして たくさん 浜辺 あります。

じゃ また。

Este es el color que escogi para volar!, bueno mañana regreso a mi pais y me quedare hasta diciembre.
No voy a poder "bloguear" desde alla, asi que todo recomienza a mi vuelta. Compre nuevos esmaltes zoyas, fantasticos y brillantes, se los mostrare tan pronto regrese.
Voy a mi maravilloso pais, caliente y chillon siempre, acumulare todo el calor que pueda, asi podre soportar el frio de Suiza...

Salve!, fino a dicembre saro in vacanza, ritorno al mio paese, sono troppo contenta.
Purtroppo mi sara difficile dedicare tempo al blog, per questo motivo smetto fino al mio rientro.
Vi mostrero i nuovi smalti acquistati e altre novita appena ricomincio.
Dalle mie parti é caldo tutto l'anno, non vedo l'ora di arrivare, anche se soffriro parecchio quando ritornero in Svizzera, sara pieno inverno...

Salut les filles, je vais dans mon pays, je suis tres contente!, c'est pour ça que je fais une pause.
Le blog sera de retour environ décembre avec beaucoup nouveautés. Au revoir.

I didn't get all the polishes from "Vintage Vixen", but the ones i got, have an excellent formula and coverage.

Creo que toda esta coleccion de CG tiene una formula y opacidad de las cuales no me puedo lamentar. Buenisimas.

Questo verde é scuro, un po' sul blu. Meraviglioso nella stesura e nella coprenza.

Giveaway For Eyes And Nails!

Due to espace only in english:

Good morning!
Is been already a month since i started blogging, and i'm really liking it! But i managed to get a long break for vacations, and at the end of october i'm going finally again to my country, i am so happy, can't wait, counting the days! Over there i won't have much time to dedicate to the blog, so i decided i will continue after my come back here. So that's why i want to make a giveaway! For my subscribers and visitors, as a thank you for stepping by and support me through this month and as an incentive to "wait" because i will be back blogging, always improving.

Lets get down to the contest!

I like to pair my makeup with my nail polish, that is not always possible because i wear makeup not very often and also for other circumstances. But if i'm going to wear red lipstick is a must for me to have red nails. Actually that is also one of my favorites makeup looks: old hollywood glam (Marilyn Monroe, Dita Von Teese, Christina Aguilera,etc).
The other one is Japanese/Korean/Thai makeup styles (SNSD, Kara, Aum Patcharapa, Morning Musume,etc).
Right now my favorite style besides going bare faced is Chanel rouge allure "Dragon" with OPI "O'Hare and nails look great".

So very easy, leave a comment with your favorite makeup-polish combination if you have one, otherwise your favorite makeup and your favorite polish. everybody can enter, this time visitors too. You have time to enter until October 18. I will choose the winner randomly on October 19, so i can ship out your present before my departure. The prize is made of 3 polishes with coordinated eyeshadow samples, all new of course! Collistar and Deborah are great italian makeup brands and Alessandro is a great german nail care brand.
Collistar "Nero lurex"-black base with holographic glitter paired with black eyeshadow with multicolor sparkles.
Deborah No.36-brownish purple base with green interference paired with green eyeshadow.
Alessandro's latest LE "Green Genie"-some kind of green with a somehow green eyeshadow.

If you blog about this contest 1 extra entry. No twitter no facebook: i don't have them.
you so much!

Vintage Time

Ageless elegance. Easy to do, pretty to look at. Is going to look better on shorter nails.

Elegancia sin tiempo. Es facil y bonita, un toque de nostalgia, me encantan los años '40 y '50.
En uñas cortas serà mejor.

ビンタジ マニキューア。 かんたん、上品 です。

Eleganza senz'età. Un tocco retro. Piu bello su unghie non troppo lunghe.

Orly-Lunar Eclipse

This one sparkles like crazy, the electric deep blue base is perfect for the dazzling purple bits!

これは かがやかしいも です、たくさん 紫 たまむしいろ 一点 が あります。

Este esmalte resplandece como estrellas, es un placer admirar las brillantes particulas moradas, como destacan en el azul electrico. Buena formula.

Un'altro smalto sgargiante! ottima resa, pigmentazione, brillantezza. Sono contentissima di averlo!

Orly-Galaxy Girl

This is the one i was most excited about from the collection, and it met my expectations. The teal iridescent is very visible against the rich grape base. Good aplication.

Me encanta este esmalte! el brillo turquesa es bien visible, la base es un morado-uva espectacular.

Orly "ガラックレ ギャール"。とても かがやかしい です、たくさん たまむしいろ 一点 が あります。

Bellissimo smalto brillante, pieno di iridiscenza turchese, per di piu con una buona stesura. Fantastico.

Orly-Space Cadet

Very duochrome-y, shifting to various hues of pink and green, sometimes purple and copper.
4 coats for me are the best because is a bit sheer.

Orly "スパス カーデット"、この マニキュア は おもしろい です。 ときどき ピンクが みどり です。

Un pedazo de Universo en mis uñas! este esmalte es una explosion de verde y rosado, con toques de morado y bronze. 4 capas aqui.

Molto iridiscente, mostra diversi colori, come potete aprezzare. E poi é di una collezione inspirata dall'universo! come non amarlo!

China Glaze-First Class Ticket

Everything good: Formula, coverage, depth, drying time...this has it all! 2 coats+top coat.
(only complaint: the aqua shimmer is subtle, i thought was more prominent)

China Glaze-Midnight Mission

Great formula with nice coverage, is very sparkling in the sun. To me this blue reminds me of the space: dark and smoky, loaded with stars.

Tiene una buena aplicacion y bastaria una capa si gustas, yo siempre voy con tres, pero aqui utilice 2 capas. Este azul me recuerda el firmamento, oscuro y tempesteado de estrellas.

この 青 は すてき です。すみません すこし日本語を わかります から もう かきません。

Un blu scuro e brillante, dai sottotoni grigi per essere piu consono con l'autumno. Mi ricorda il cielo notturno stellato. Buonissima formula.

Monday, September 6, 2010


3 coats+Seche vite, maybe because i have long nails the aplication is not the best, but i don't care: i love this polish.

The Iphone Manicure

I read about this manicure not long ago. Is to paint your thumb with a different polish, so you can have a special "something" when you are texting on your cell phone. I like the idea.

Me gusta esta idea de pintar la uña del pulgar con un color de impacto, para tener algo "especial" mientras escribes en tu celular.

"Iphone"マニキューアが とても すき です。 この マニキューア は たのしい と やさしい です。

Un'idea interessante al usare il cellulare: avere l'unghia del pollice dipinta da un colore sgargiante, un qualcosina di particolare al scrivere.

L.A. Girl-Groupie

To me this is a blurple "Ruby Pumps"!!!, great aplication, lots and lots of iridiscent sparkles, shifting randomly from blue to purple. Amazing.
