Semi-Hiatus: July plans & updates!

July 4, 2013 § 8 Comments

Hello, ladies!

I’m posting this entry now, but know that I’m writing it down on a Tuesday evening. I’m talking to the future right now, haha! 😛 By this time, I’ll be about 60km away from home, safe and sound, hopefully.

Anyway, as I was saying on Monday I would have updated you with my July plans.

Thankfully, I got into the TOEFL study program at my university and so I’m staying away in a little town near where I live for four entire weeks. In the company of 19 Italian students that I don’t know and 25 American students from Detroit, which, again, I don’t know at all. :3 Kind of nervous, here. It should be fun, though. Or, at least, that’s what I hope for. 😉

I still don’t know if I’ll come back home on the weekends or if (oh no!) I’ll have the Internet there (from what they are saying, it should be, but..I tend to not trust people about wi-fi, haha).
In any case, I won’t be able to write any reviews and I feel like a need some weeks off my blog just to rest my mind (that’s an euphemism since I’m away to throw myself into English studies :P) a little bit. I still have some products I’ve used this Spring that I want to talk about (like the Chanel lipstick I got for Christmas!) and I’ll sure will in August when I’ll be back on schedule.

For now, I think I’ll let my hiatus begin. I hate that word, especially if it concerns TV shows, haha! 😛
Well, let’s call it a SEMI-HIATUS since I don’t know what my mind will do and I may post something anyway even if not on schedule.

I really hope you understand, girls! 😉
Hopefully I’ll still be able to check your blogs from time to time. I desperately hope that they are right and that there’s actually free wi-fi where I’m going, but I really doubt it! 😦
Being internet-less, anyway, won’t hurt too much (I’m trying to convince myself of this thing :P). After all, I’m in that program to study and to improve my English! 😛 I just..don’t want to be isolated from the rest of the world, haha!

Take care, girls and enjoy this month!
Feel free to spam this post with your updates so when I come back I’ll easier catch up! ❤
I send you all a big box of kisses and hugs!

Review: Kiko Nail Polish in Celeste/Light Blue (#340)

July 1, 2013 § 12 Comments

Hello and happy July, girls!

Today I took another exam (woop woop!) and, for now, I’m done with studying for uni exams. I’ll have the latest one (ever!) in September. 😉
I’ll update you soon (on Thursday, hopefully) with my plans for this month, but today it’s Mani Monday and I’ll talk about the Kiko Nail Polish in Celeste (Light Blue) #340.

Kiko celeste

Color&Pigmentation. The color is the brightest light blue I own. It’s not a turquoise, not a deep blue, not a baby blue. It’s a blue-sky blue. Stunning. When I first bought it I wasn’t sure if I would wear it without the bright color bothering me. Well, to be honest, I had to adapt my sight to it a bit, at the beginning, but now I want to wear it all the time!
Don’t ask me why, but on the nails it seems a tad (really a tad!) darker than the color in the bottle. Maybe it’s the bare nail color that darkens it, but it’s really minimal so no big deal. The pigmentation is good, but I always wear two coats of it to get more coverage.

Application. This was a nail polish added to the very first line of polishes and I noticed a different formula to it (as many other bloggers/youtubers said in the past). It’s stickier than the older Kiko nail polishes. As a result, the application isn’t the easiest one, but nothing too bothering either.

Longevity. Very good. Without top coat it lasted 6 days with no chipping.

Packaging. The same ol’ Kiko nail polishes packaging. 😉

Store&Price. I bought it 3.90€ for at the Kiko store in my town, but if you live in Europe you can easily buy it online too. Here‘s the link to the UK website.

Overall: 8/10. If the formula was better, I would have declared it my favourite blue nail polish. Anyway, I still suggest you to pick this color up because you won’t regret it! 😉

Talk to you in a few days, ladies!

Stay beautiful.
