I've never came across Inglot product before as I didn't see it anywhere to be sold as it is brand from Poland.But once I went to London Westfield shopping centre and there was it - Inglot store. I was really excited as they are something like MAC. Lots of colours, tons of polishes and all the makeup artits' stuff.I was just impressed and like in heaven :) There were so many polishes I couldn't decide which one to buy. At the end I grabbed #705 from their Matte collection. Well, it is not really matte, it is more satin finish. The colour is rich and easy to apply and the brush is like other ordinary polish brush. I would compare it maybe to Color Club brushes.

Wear test: The polish has satin finish so there is no way you can use top coat. The polish was drying up very long time so even in the morning I had a bit of pillow patterns on my nails. It started to chip in about 12 hours and after 24 hours I had few badly chipped nails.

Overally, I don't like this polish too much as the satin finish looks just weird, colour didn't come up as nice as in the bottle and it doesn't last very long time :( I hope it is problem just at Matte collection.

Comparison between Inglot's satin finish, Essie Matte about You topcoat and China Glaze Matte Magic topcoat

 Nikdy driv jsem nic od Inglotu nezkousela, protoze jsem nenarazila nikde na jejich produkty, jelikoz je to polska znacka. Jednou jsem ale sla do londynskeho nakupniho centra Westfield a tam byl - Inglot obchod. Byla jsem fakt nadsena, bylo to jako v MACu :) Hodne barev, tuny laku a ostatni kosmetika. Byla jsem jak v nebi. Bylo tam tolik laku, ze jsem se proste nemohla rozhodnout, ktery koupit. Nakonec jsem sahla po laku cislo 705 z matne kolekce. No, popravde to neni matny lak, zaschne spise do satenova. Barva je krasne syta a dobre se nanasela. Stetecek jako u ostatnich znacek. Prirovnala bych ho tak ke Color Club lakum.

Test vydrze: Protoze ma lak satinovy povrch, nemohla jsem pouzit nadlak. Lak tedy bez nej schnul hodne dlouho a i rano jsem mela na nehtech otisknuty polstar. Zacal se loupat uz po 12ti hodinach a zhruba za 24 hodin jsem mela nekolik dost skarede oloupanych nehtu.

Celkove mi tenhle lak nepadl zrovna do oka - satinovy povrch vypada divne, barva neodpovidala barve v lahvicce a lak nevydrzel ani jeden den :( Jen doufam, ze je to problem jen u matne kolekce.

I must admit, I'm starting to fall in love with some cremes. I've always worn shimmery or glittery polishes but I like also cremes lately. Today I introduce you to Heli-yum from China Glaze - strawbery/raspberry creme shade. This one is from Up & Away Collection 2010. It applies smoothly and needs hardly two coats because it has very good coverage. Formula is great, it does not streak and it had amazing staying power. I've removed it after 5 days just because I wanted to do some swatches otherwise I could wear it few more days :)

Musim se priznat, ze se zacinam zamilovavat do nekterych kremovek. Vzducky jsem nosila jen trpytive a glitrove laky, ale v posledni dobe uz i kremovky. Dnes vam predstavim Heli-yum od China Glaze - jahodovo-malinovy kremovy lak. Tenhle patri do Up & Away kolekce 2010. Velmi dobre se nanasel a skoro nepotreboval ani dve vrstvy, protoze velmi dobre kryl. Kinzistence je skvela, lak nepruhuje a hodne dlouho vydrzel. Odlakovala jsem ho po 5 dnech jen proto, ze jsem chtela vyzkouset a nafotit par novych laku, jinak bych ho nosila nekolik dalsich dnu :)
