NOTD: Dusky Mauve & Giveaway prize!


Today I want to show you a prize I have recently won from a giveaway organized by Chrissy Dee Ten Eleven.

I want to thank her for giving me the opportunity to try the Barry M polishes and the Sleek palette. 
The colors of the palette are great, very pigmented.

As for the polishes, I fell in love with Dusky Mauve.
Here are some pictures:

Here or here you can find some nice comparisons of Dusky Mauve to Chanel - Paradoxal and other nail polishes. (I would do the comparison myself, but I don't own any of the other polishes).

What do you think? Do you like the color? Do you own something similar?

KOTD: Ready for work!


Some of you asked me why I haven't been posting lately. 
Well, I have two reasons: after Christmas I went on a trip to Budapest (I will post some pictures in another post). The second reason is that I started work. 
Yes, last week was my first week at my new job (and also the first week of work of my life).
Unfortunately, I had to cut all my nails (I work in a hospital so I can't have long nails), so, from now on, you will see NOTDs and designs on extremely short nails.

Here is my manicure from last week:

I used p2 - charming as a base and Essence nail art stampy polish (white for the tips and black for the design). [I bought them from Budapest along with some other nail polishes - I will show you more in another post]
Image plates: M19, Essence image plate.

What manicure do you think it's suited for work? What colors do you use?
