Good evening ladies,
What a hot weekend… I need some water around, cuz otherwise I’ll burn in here. And because it is so hot, I was sitting in the studio and swatching. I have prepared for you some swatched of four beautiful Max Factor shades, which I received from a Slovenian supplier Orbico. I did a nail art too, so don’t miss the tutorial at the end of the post.

Dober večer drage damice,
Kakšen vroč vikend… Nujno rabim vodo, kamor lahko namočim nogice, ker bom drugače kmalu kuhana in pečena. Kljub vročini, sem večer še vedno namenila swatchanju v studiu. Pripravila sem oceno štirih čudovitih Max Factor lakov, ki sem jih prejela od Orbica. Seveda sem naredila tudi vremenu primerno poslikavo, zato ne zamudite tutorial na koncu objave.

I received four polished to write my honest opinion – two full size and two mini bottles. One of them is creme and the other three are shimmer polishes. Formula is great with all four. The brushes are typical for Max Factor polishes and they allow easy application. They were all swatched with three coats, but four example, the red shimmer polish can be opaque in two coats if you pay more attention to the application. I am not sure why Max Factor polishes don’t appear more in the blogger community (the only exception I can remember of is the legendary Fantasy Fire), because they deffinitely deserve it. Let’s have a closer look.

 

V oceno sem prejela štiri lake – dva velika in dva mini lakca. Gre za kremne in “šimer” (jaz sem kar prevzela par angleških izrazov, saj za kakšne stvari ali ne najdem slovenske beseda, ali pa se enostavno slovenska beseda ne sliši dobro) lake. Formula je super pri vseh štirih. Kar se tiče prekrivnosti, jaz sam za swatche uporabila tri plasti, ampak recimo temno rdeči bi bil z malo več namenjene pozornosti pri lakiranju prekriven tudi z eno plastjo manj. Flaške so standardne za Max Factor lake, čopiči pa tudi omogočajo dober nanos. Sama menim da so Max Factor laki zelo kakovostni in ne vem točno zakaj se jim v blogerskem svetu ne nameni več pozornosti (izjema je seveda slavni Fantasy Fire), saj si tega definitivno zaslužijo. Poglejmo jih podrobneje.

 

 

 

Sheen Merlot – is a dark wine red nail polish full of amazing red shimmer. It belongs to the Gel Shine Lacquer Collection. I must compare this one to OPI – German-icure by Opi, because they are possible dupes, although I think the shimmer of OPI has a touch of orange undertone. We will see.

Sheen Merlot – je vinsko rdeč lak s čudovitim rdečim šimrom. Je del Gel Shine Lacquer kolekcije. Moram ga primerjati z OPI – German-icure by Opi, ker se mi zdi da sta si zelo podobna, čeprav menim da ima OPI nekaj oranžnega podtona.
 

 

 

 

Cloudy Blue – is a dark blue shimmer nail polish. It is a mini size nail polish.

Patent Poppy – is a vidiv orange-red nail polish with a little touch of pink shimmer, that is not that visible on the nails. The orange part of the red color was killed by the pink shimmer, so on the pictures it looks just red, or maybe pink-red.

Patent Poppy – je rdeč lak z oranžnim podtonom in nekaj malega roza šimra, ki pa na samih nohtih niti ni tako dobro viden, ampak se ga vseeno opazi. Oranžen podton in roza šimer se nekako izničita, zato na koncu prevlada zgolj rdeča, ki mogoče potegne malce na roza-rdečo.

 

 

Satsuma – is a vivid orange creme nail polish. It is a mini size nail polish.

After long time I decided to do a reverse stamping manicure, using home made stamping decals. I used the previously swatched orange baby as base. I made the decals using baking paper, Essence Sealing Top Coat, Mundo de Unas Black stamping polish and Cheeky Jumbo Plate – Tropical Holiday. The citruses were painted with OPI – I Just Can’t Cope-acabana and China Glaze – Grass Is Lime Greener, the ice cubes are “doted” with Color Club – Over The Moon. While waiting for the decals to dry, I used the same yellow and green polish to create the dots on the pinkie and index finger. When the decals were ready, I transfered them on the nails using the same Essence Sealing Top Coat. I finished the manicure with one coat of Poshe Top Coat.

 

Po dolgem času sem se ponovno odločila da naredim manikuro z doma narejenimi stamping nalepkami. Za osnovo sem uporabila maloprej predstavljeni oranžni lakec. Za izdelavo nalepko sem uporabila peki papir, Essence Top Sealing nadlak, Mundo de Unas Black stamping lak in Cheeky Jumbo šablono – Tropical Holiday. Citrusi so pobarvani z OPI – I Just Can’t Cope-acabana in China Glaze – Grass Is Lime Greener, kocke ledu pa z Color Club – Over The Moon. Medtem ko sem čakala da se nalepke posušiju, sem naredila rumene in zelene pikice na mezinčka in kazalca. Ko so bile nalepke pripravljene, sem jih nanesla s pomočjo istega Essence nadlaka. Na koncu sem manikuro fiksirala še z eno plastjo Poshe nadlaka.
