Nordic Collection by OPI

OPI is one of my favorite nail polish brands, because I really enjoy their color selection, I like the consistency of nail polishes and their brushes are easy to handle. I also really enjoy the names of their polishes – they always come up with something unique and interesting.

OPI Nordic mini collection

OPI came out with this new mini set, called Nordic Collection by OPI, for fall/winter 2014. The collection consists of 4 different nail polishes:

1) My Dogsled Is A Hybrid (creamy sea green color)

2) Do You Have This Color In Stock Holm? (blue-violet color, note: it’s a bit more violet in real life, see picture below)

3) My Voice Is A Little Norse (shimmer)

4) How Great Is Your Dane? (cinnamon coffee color)

OPI Nordic collection

This Little Northies mini nail lacquers are super cute and in fact mini. Each nail polish contains 3.75ml or 1/8 fl.oz. They are perfect for traveling, their brushes are still great quality and easy to use.

My favorite color from this collection is ‘How great is your dane?’, and I really enjoyed putting over one of my nails the ‘My voice is a Little Norse’ shimmer color, to spice it up a bit.

Thanks for reading today’s blog post. Which color from this collection is your favorite?

*****

OPI je že kar nekaj časa ena iz med mojih najljubših znamk, ko kupujem lake za nohte. Všeč mi je vrsta različnih odtenkov, tekstura lakov in tudi sam čopič, ki je zelo enostaven za uporabo. Poleg tega so mi zelo všeč tudi imena njihovih lakov, saj so res zelo zanimiva in edinstvena. Veliko OPI lakcov lahko najdeš po ugodnih cenah na spletni strani Za Piko Na I.

Tokrat nam OPI ponuja mini kompletek OPI Nordic, kolekcija jesen/zima 2014.

OPI Nordic mini

Kompletek vsebuje 4 lakce:  My Dogsled is a Hybrid (mentolna, modrozelana s kremastim finišem), Do you have this color in Stock holm? (živa, močna, modrovijolična s kremastim finišem), My voice is a Little Norse (v sivkasti podlagi drobne, večje in manjše holografske bleščice) in How great is your dane? (​temna čokoladnorjava s sivim podtonom in kremastim finišem).

Kompletek lahko najdeš na tejle spletni strani po ugodni ceni!

Mini lakci so mi zelo všeč, saj jih rada vzamem s seboj na kakšno potovanje, ker ne vzamejo veliko prostora. V tem primeru gre za ‘mini’ lakce v pravem pomenu, vsak od njih vsebuje 3.75ml laka. Všeč mi je, da so ohranili relativno velik čopič, ki je zato še vedno zelo uporaben in omogoča enostaven nanos.

OPI nail polsih

Moj najljubši lak iz te kolekcije je ‘How great is your dane?’. Trenutno si nohte zelo rada nalakiram tako, da na vsaki roki po en noht (običajno prstanec) namažem še z bleščicami, da nekoliko razbijem monotonost. Tukaj sem lahko uporabila kar lakec iz tega kompletka, in sicer My voice is a Little Norse.

Spletna trgovina Za Piko Na I pa ponuja tudi veliko drugih izdelkov. Preveri katere tukaj:  www.zapikonai.si

Hvala, da si si vzel/a čas in prebral/a današnji blog. Kateri OPI lakec iz Nordic kolekcije pa je tebi najbolj všeč?

I Love Extreme – Crazy Volume Mascara

I’ve finally caved and bought this mascara from Essence, because everyone seems to love it. I don’t really like experimenting with mascaras, because most of the time I end up being disappointed. But because it’s really inexpensive I bought it.

I fell in love with it right away!

Russell Organics – Vitamin C Serum review

I was really happy to hear that StrawberryNET.com wanted to do a collab with me. They are an online store with over 32.000 products to choose from, they always have great discounts (even on luxury brands!!), free gifts & free shipping. If you are their regular costumer, they will offer you loyalty and rewards programs, etc.

They are really nice and have a great costumer service, so I would definitely recommend that you check them out.

They sent me a product to test out from a brand called Russell Organics.

I’ve heard about this brand before, but never tried any of their stuff. The founder of the company is called Richard Russel, and the brand itself offers luxury beauty products. The company is eco friendly; they minimized the use of boxes and are using containers that are easily recycled, they are also cruelty free and vegan !

August Favorites!

Neutral and natural shades were all I cared about this August.

August Favorites

I’ve been using Revlon Colorstay foundation for a couple of years now and I always repurchase it, because it’s great! The shade Buff fits me perfectly; it’s medium to full coverage and lasts a long time.

Bunch of Goodies!

Another bunch of goodies from Afrodita. This time I got a nourishing body milk and oil shower gel from their Jojoba Oil with Shea Butter range. They both smell amazing, with a hint of vanilla in them. They are perfect for colder days, leaving your skin really soft and well nourished.

The other two products are from their Hydra Thermal range (I raved about their face serum before – click here to see full review).

Afrodita Hydra Thermal

The Eye cream claims to be Anti dark circles and puffiness, and it’s also supposed to reduce your first wrinkles. It smells almost the same as the serum (very refreshing) and it also comes in a small, cute bottle with a pump. The product is a bit thicker, and you need a really small amount of it. The eye cream didn’t break me out (and it has happened before with other eye creams – so it’s a big plus), and it absorbs quickly into the skin.

Firmoo Giveaway!

I’m doing a giveaway in collaboration with Firmoo.com, a global online Optical store where you can find different glasses as well as sunglasses. They also offer a very convenient option on their website called virtual try-on system, where you can simply add your photo and then ‘try on’ different pairs of glasses to see how they would look on you! I think this is an awesome feature for buying glasses online, because obviously you can’t try them on for real and this helps you get an idea what the glasses will look like on you.

I will randomly pick 5 winners who will receive a 15$ voucher each, to spend in Firmoo’s online store. It can only be used once and it does not cover the shipping costs. The winners can choose the product from new arrivals online, which can be found here. I think they are offering a great range of different glasses for really affordable pricing.

How to enter this giveaway?

1) Follow my blog

2) Like my Facebook page

3) Follow me on Instagram

4) Leave a blog comment to tell which Firmoo glasses you like

The giveaway is opened internationally (Please check if they ship to your country – here).

The winners will be announced on Facebook and Blog on Saturday, 6.9.2014.

Good luck!
