NOTD: Wet n Wild Speed

Hello there readers!

May I present to you todays NOTD, which is Wet n Wild Speed.

This is a shimmering deep dark purple with blue and pink micro glitter, I've really been craving purples lately, must be the season ;)

Application was OK - the formula was good, but unfortunately the brush is a real disaster. It's really thick and dense, and the brush hairs are unevenly cut with wispy hairs pointing in different directions, which makes it a bit tricky to apply.

Also, it took quite some time to dry, even though I used Seche a topcoat - I made dents after several hours had passed - don't like formulas that behave like that. I really like the shade though!

Let's look at the pics then, shall we?

Direct sunlight...

Indirect sunlight...

The brush...

With flash... 
Looks way more "blurple" here than it really is

Close up...

So, which is your favorite purple?

That's all for now - I wish you all a great day, see you soon :)

Blog Update!


Hello ladies!

Well, not much has been happening around here - it's been quite a while since I last posted - let me tell you this summer has been just crazy, leaving absolutely no room for a relaxing holiday. We've been working really hard on our house (we are in the process of major renovating), and there's been lot of other things going on as well.

Additionally, my daughter has started... kindergarten?/day care? (I'm not sure which English term is the correct one ;)), and I have decided to go back to school to finish my degree (been studying mainly law and sociology on and off for the last 7 years), so there's been quite a lot of adjusting to do - I still haven't fully adjusted to these new routines and schedules, but I'll get there eventually ;)

I've truly missed all of you, and I'm really sorry for not having kept you up to date with what's going on - won't happen again, promise ;)
I plan to resume posting on a regular basis sometime next week; I will probably have to limit blogging to a couple of posts a week due to all other commitments, at least to begin with.

On another note; I really want to take a moment to welcome all of my new followers!

Thank you so much for joining me here in my little corner of cyberspace :) I'm truly grateful for each and everyone of you following my blog - it really means the world to me, otherwise, if no one cared to read my posts; why would I be doing this? So, thank you, once again, for jumping on my little beauty wagon :)

So - not much else for today - I hope to "see" you back here next week!
