El Corazon 421/5 Dalmatian

I thought that it would be nice to upgrade my red berry nails from the previous post with a black glitter top coat by El Corazon, to give it even more realistic berry look, and I think this polish looks great over this color!

El Corazon 421/5 Dalmatian is an Art Top Coat polish that contains tiny black matte glitter, and I'm pretty sure there's a bit of tiny gold glitter as well. They are all mixed in a clear base which makes them suitable for application over any color. 
The formula of this polish is really great, it contains a good amount of glitter which allows easy application and with a few strokes you get a full coverage of glitter over the nail.
The base of this polish is completely clear, which is great because you can layer it over any color, even over white - and get a clean look (there are polishes with a similar effect  that can look a bit "dusty" on the nail, but this one didn't).

For this look I applied one coat of El Corazon 421/5 Dalmatian over two coats of Seche Happy As Is, and topped it with one coat of Poshe.
I think this is a great polish that can upgrade any color, and it would be interesting to use it in a layering technique (such as jelly sandwich), or over pastel colors to imitate the egg birds look.

Seche - Happy As Is, from the Clever And Confident Collection

Today I have a delicious swatch to share with you, this time it's one of the new shades released by Seche for their new fall-winter 2013 collection named Clever And Confident.
This lovely shade I am wearing is called Happy As Is, it's a bright raspberry creme with a great and opaque formula. It was meant to be a one-coater, it does have a great pigment and a good coverage, but since I have long nails and a relatively large free-edge, I felt like I needed to use two coats for perfect coverage. I believe that if you have shorter nails, you can probably settle for one coat to achieve a great look.

בפוסט של היום מככב אחד הגוונים מהקולקציה החדשה של Seche שהושקה לכבוד עונות הסתיו-חורף 2013, מדובר בקולקציה Clever And Confident. על הלקים הצבעוניים של חברת Seche כתבתי בעבר, ואני בטוחה שאתן כבר מכירות את מייבש הלק המעולה שבזכותו החברה פרצה לשוק - Seche Vite Top Coat.
הצבע הנהדר שעל ציפורניי נקרא Happy, As Is - זהו גוון פטל אדום, כל כך יפה שמתחשק לטעום אותו. הלק בעל פורמולה נהדרת שנועדה להעניק כיסוי מלא בשכבה אחת בלבד, הפורמולה מאוד סמיכה ובעלת פיגמנט נהדר שנותן כיסוי מעולה. אני אישית הרגשתי צורך להשתמש בשתי שכבות כדי להגיע לסיכוי מושלם, בגלל אורך הציפורניים שלי והעובדה שבשכבה אחת עדיין הקצה החופשי של הציפורן נראה לעין.

I have reviewed two Seche polishes before, and I felt like they dried too fast and become streaky on application. With this polish I actually feel like it has a much better formula and the application was flawless for me. It also dried very fast on the nails, leaving a glossy finish, but for these photos I decided to apply Seche Vite top coat on top of two layers of Happy As Is.

The color is really gorgeous and classy for my opinion, it does appear a bit more pink toned in the photos than in was in real life, but still it's a lovely shade that I feel will be great for great for all year round, and not just for the upcoming fall-winter seasons.

מהתנסות הקודמת שלי עם הלקים של Sechce קיבלתי את הרושם שהם מתייבשים מהר מדי, מה שגרם למריחה לא אחידה, אבל הלק הזה דווקא הפתיע אותי לטובה בפורמולה המושלמת שלו שנמרחה בקלות, התייבשה במהירות על הציפורניים והותירה את הלק בגימור מבריק. לתמונות השתמשתי בשתי שכבות של הלק Happy As Is ובשכבה אחת של Seche Vite Top Coat.
לטעמי הגוון הזה מאוד קלאסי ויפה, בתמוונת הוא נראה יותר ורוד מאשר במציאות, אך למרות זאת מדובר בצבע מאוד מוצלח ולדעתי יתאים לכל עונות השנה, ולא רק לעונת הסתיו-חורף.

Seche Clever And Confident collection includes six shades suitable for the upcoming fall-winter seasons. The shades in this collection are very rich and all have creme formula, except for Intuition which has some lovely shimmer to it.

Wonderfully Witty – A rich navy blue crème
Versatile – A dark teal crème, versatile for anyone
Silly, But Sensible – The perfect fall burnt orange crème
Happy, As Is – A vibrant raspberry red crème
Clever and Confident –A delectable, deep plum crème
Intuition – A rich dark merlot with a slight red shimmer

הקולקציה של Seche Clever And Confident כוללת שישה גוונים המתאימים לעונות הסתיו והחורף הקרובות. מדובר בצבעים מאוד עשירים בעלי פורמולה בגימור קרמי, פרט ל-Intuition שהוא גוון בעל גימור עם אפקט שימרי מנצנץ.

Wonderfully Witty – קרם כחול כהה עשיר
Versatile – אמרלד ירוק כהה
Silly, But Sensible – גוון טרקוטה כתמתם
Happy, As Is – קרם בגוון פטל אדום
Clever and Confident – גוון שזיף כהה
Intuition – אדום מרלו כהה עם שימר

את הקולקציה ניתן להשיג במרכזי הטיפוח המקצועיים, מחיר הלק 49 ₪

Even the models couldn't stop looking at their gorgeous Zoya nails!
To get the Peter Som "Nail Wave" look by Zoya, all nails were prepped with Zoya Remove+ nail polish remover and conditioner. Then one coat of Zoya Anchor Base Coat (or Zoya Get Even Ridge Filler Base Coat depending on the models nails). To achieve the look, lead manicurist, Sunshine Outing applied  two coats of Zoya Nail Polish in Alexa. and free handed the moons by stopping 3/4 of the way down the nail and applying one coat of Zoya Nail Polish in Edie (or Edie with Alexa in reverse) to create a free spirited surf culture style "Nail Wave". The look was glossed and sealed by using one coat of Zoya Armor Top Coat and one drop of Zoya Fast Drops on each nail to ensure every model would make it the runway dried and ready!

China Glaze Rendezvous With You

For today's post I will be sharing with you my favorite color from the China Glaze Autumn Nights collection - Rendezvous With You. I think this is the most interesting and beautiful polish in this collection, and I was very glad I got it because this is truly a great polish.

China Glaze Rendezvous With You is a gorgeous dark purple with tons of silver shimmer that almost gives it a foil look. The color itself is very interesting and it looks great in different lighting, each time he light brings out something different and interesting about this polish.
The formula was spectacular! It was super opaque with just one coat, spread easily without streaking and dried really fast. I don't think you can ask for anything better than this in a polish. 
For the photos below I applied one coat, no top coat on.
I think this is a great polish in every aspect, and for me it easily became one of my favorites for the upcoming fall-winter season. Defiantly one of my best purchases lately!
Have you tried this color yet? I would love to know what you think about it, and if you haven't got the chance to try it, I would totally recommend you to keep an eye on this gorgeous polish, I have a feeling you will end up liking is as much as I do.
