Hey everybody. How are you doing? How about a minute to reflect on my blogging in 2013? As I didn't manage to do any of the favourites of 2013 post, where that would be more fitting ... My blogging in 2013, to put it short, sucked.
As my regular readers will know, in the beginning of the year I was a part of a large international competition that lasted until April, and afterwards of course I had my exams and my social life to put back in order, and before you know it I was here in Bratislava in September. During all that time for blog was non-existent or I simply lacked the energy for writing and taking pictures (even went entire March without nail polish, which hasn't happened in years before that).
If I thought I will have more time for blogging here, even about Bratislava, I was of course mistaken. In fact, during Summer I actually considered closing the blog, but then a friend of mine convinced me not to do it. Still, the statistic are a bit sad. I wrote 60 blog posts in the last year. In year before that 112 and in 2011 222 posts. I think one factor was also the fact my camera got kind of broken this year, the battery case keeps randomly opening up, which sometimes makes shooting decent photos quite frustrating and time consuming. Now that I have a decent phone with a camera better than the previous one I think I'll get back the joy of taking pictures of my hands. ;)
I will not make any promises to write regularly, because I make them way too often and then just break them, but I will try. I do love blogging and I have "met" through blog so many great people I think I should keep on doing it. So if you stuck with me until now: thank you, and I hope I'll met you here in 2014 too. :)
The star of this blogpost is from the package wonderful Eveline from Tudo Sobre Esmaltes sent me oh so many months ago. For some odd reason I have not worn Mari Moon Unconventional until now. And it is one of the most stunning multichromes I own. It is insane, really, you should see it in person. Sometimes it is warm purple with blue shimmer, but then it shifts to brighter royal purple and if you shift your hand some more, to a sexy dark red (not unlike Zoya Isla, I think), and if you shift your hand even more it goes orange-y red. Stunningly gorgeous.
The photos were made with my new phone my BF bought me for NY and the camera is pretty darn awesome, much better than my old one. I love how these pictures turned out. I couldn't capture all the colours of Unconventional, there are too many and some of them get most obvious in light too soft for the camera to work properly in. But even these pictures ... ah, isn't it gorgeous?
This was three coats. It is in fact a two coater, but the brush is very Hits Speciallita like, which means way too stiff and bristles are messy, so they dent the polish surface and you need the third coat to even it up. Totally worth the trouble though. :)
Eveline, thank you! I think every single polish from your package was breathtaking. :)
What is your favourite multi/duochrome shade?
