Hi girls :)

Thank you for all the previous lovely comments! The 'Reply' to the comment function finally works so I'll do my best to reply to all comments :) I'd also appreciate if you would let me know if you like the new blog layout with big pictures :)

Now to the February Amarya box - I really, really like it! It's probably because it contains full sized Zoya polish hehe :D And also if you subscribe to Amarya and send them email with your name, date you joined my name (Lucie Hanuskova) as the person who reffered you, we will both get FREE ONE MONTH MEMBERSHIP!  How cool is that?!

So what was in my box?

Essential Care Organic Avocado Replenishing Cream 'A sumptuous aromatherapeutic night or rich day cream with nature's finest contribution to smoothing out lines and promoting skin regeneration'. Apparently this is a full sized item, it has 15 ml and retails for £6. Very nice price I think. It comes in a plastic tube, it's a vegan product, not tested on animals and free from chemicals. The cream is light and absorbs fast and it smells like lavender. I don't like lavender but I really like description and formula of the cream so I'll give it a try :)

There has been also a small sample of Essential Care Organic Rose Moisturiser (1.5ml) - 'Treat your skin to the best that nature can offer. A luxurious, antioxidant light-textured day-cream which is fully absorbed leaving the skin soft and velvety smooth. Deeply moisturising with shea butter, jojoba oil, coconut oil, aloe leaf, and the essential oil and hydrolat of damask roses. The cold-pressed plant oils, naturally high in antioxidants of vitamins A & E, and sea buckthorn help counteract the ageing and collagen-destroying effects of 'free radicals' and sunlight.'

Neom Happiness Travel Candle - 'it's the new uplifting spring/summer scent from NEOM. Essential oils of White Neroli, Mimosa and Lemon are blended to create a crisp spring garden scent. This candle is especially good for relieving tension whilst giving a little perk up. All Neom candles, hand poured in the UK, are 100% natural and high in essential oils to provide an aroma-therapeutic treatment.'  it's a really lovely candle and I was over the moon to get a candle but unfortunately I can't stand the smell :( So I swapped it for another Zoya polish :D Candle retails for £13

Zoya Avery - I was secretly wishing for a long time that we get Zoya polish in our box...YES! Avery is pale peach shade from new Feel collection. Can't wait to swatch it! Retail price for the Zoya polish is always around £10

So this month's box was great for me! Nice face cream and full sized Zoya polish! What else could I ask for? :D

If you've missed on this month's box don't be sad, Amarya boxes are great every month! So once again, if you subscribe to Amarya and send them email with your name, date you joined my name (Lucie Hanuskova) as the person who referred you, we will both get FREE ONE MONTH MEMBERSHIP!

Hello girls!

I got my paws on OPI Nicki Minaj mini collection so here are the swatches :) In the beginning I didn't want to buy any of these because they are just not my colours but I thought what the heck, I'm a blogger and this is a new collection! :D The packaging is shiny silver metallic-like which I suppose should've been association to shade Metallic 4 Life.

Pink Friday - pale pink creme. This is actually a very nice shade of pink that doesn't make my hands look like dead :) It has quite good formula too. I was struggling a bit with the first coat - it was a bit too streaky but second coat evened it out. Pigmentation is reasonable for a creme shade, I've used 2 coats for a full coverage. Drying time was average and I had no problems with removal.

Fly - bright blue creme shade. Polish has lovely formula, it applied very easily. It also has good pigmentation, two coats were plenty enough to have a lovely opaque colour. In addition it dried fast and no problems with removal. If you're fan of blue shades, I can recommend this one (I'm not a big fan but I can give home to one small blue bottle ;)

Did It On 'Em -bright chartreuse creme. It's really strange shade, yellow with green mixed together, quite similar to Who The Shrek Are You? shade. The formula was good, it applied very easily. I've used two coats for perfect coverage. Polish dried fast and was easy to remove.

Metallic 4 Life - Black jelly base with different sized silver glitter. From promo pics I thought this would be my favourite polish but it's not. It's far away from being my favourite polish. The polish was quite gloopy, especially around the bottle neck and I had to be really careful to apply it so the glitter would be placed evenly. This is two thick coats but I could easily do three for better result. The finish is a bit gritty when it dries so I applied generous layer of Seche Vite topcoat. Also removal was more difficult because of the glitter. This was a big let-down for me :-/

And here is a little crazy Nicki Minaj Style stamping manicure I've created using Pink Friday, Fly, Did It On 'Em and black Konad polish.
