Color Club ~ Gossip Column

Heya everyone! How are you? How is your end of Summer going? I'm already reaching for more Fall-ish colours for my nails and Gossip Column is definitively one of them. It is a beautiful teal colour, I craved it for so long. And worn it only once. Typical. Still, it is one of my favourite shades ever. I remember buying like 3 dupes or something like that, thinking I must have this shade no matter what. Only to realise back home I have it already. I kept the Color Club one because it is perfect all around.

Two coats, wonderful application, great formula. I like Color Club, I don't know why I don't have more shades made by them. I need to wear this baby soon.

What is your favourite Fall colour?

Jordana ~ Mystical

Hey my dear people! How have you been? Honestly, I had so many posts prepared this summer and I just let it fall apart. I even wanted to do a post about Iron Maiden concert in Zagreb. My BF bought us ticket for headbangers pit for our anniversary and it was insane. He took some photos and I thought about posting it and then just didn't. But I feel like my blogging is getting back a bit, so here is another very old set of photos of a polish I love, it is great. Judging by the notes in the background of the photos, these were taken two years ago. Whoa. My nails look awesome though. ATM I don't like them at all. I'm eating Biotin capsules, I hope they help. 

These Jordanas need three coats for full opacity and they are absolutely stunning. I think I've showed you the rest I own, my favourite still being Supernatural and Wicked. Plus the formula and the brush are great and they are not big TC eaters. Love them, I wish I had more Jordanas in my stash. 

Do you know Jordana brand, have a favourite shade you can recommend?

Thank you for reading and commenting, have a great end of summer!

Illamasqua ~ Baptiste

Hello everyone! How are you doing? I am just a couple of weeks away from leaving for Bratislava for six months and I am already getting quite nervous. I hope everything will turn out right, I still have to wait for confirmation from my faculty about some things. But anyway ... I opened my folder of swatches today and saw I have tons of unposted pictures. One of the colours still unrepresented on my blog is Illamasqua Baptiste. Insanely rich purple shimmer. Lightbox pictures turn it out a bit too blue-base so I am posting also a rather poor set of pictures taken outside. The base is more accurate there, but the light is bad. Oh well. It is still a cool colour!

Two easy coats, really rich colour, very nicely pigmented, the brush is great too. The price tag is way too high for my taste, but Illamasqua does have some colours worth the coin. We do have Illamasqua now in Slovenia as well, which is great, especially since they didn't set the price even higher as I expected them to.

Do you have any Illamasqua polish? What is your favourite one?
