RO: Normal ca si eu, ca orice alta fiinta umana de sex feminin de pe planeta cu acces la Internet si la produsele catalogate "must have", am tanjit si mi-am dorit oja Peridot de la Chanel de cand am vazut-o prima oara. Mi-a placut atat de mult incat chiar ma batea gandul sa fac efortul (financiar, avand in vedere pretul unei oje Chanel) si chiar sa platesc acei, nu stiu cat o fi, dar sigur peste 30 de euro. Din fericire, Sephora are dupe-ul perfect la un pret mul mai accesibil, si atunci cand zic perfect ma refer la: "nu poti sa vezi diferenta intre ele" perfect (si daca nu ma credeti, dati un search si va veti convinge). Asa ca iat-o, Diving in Malaysia de la sephora, o oja metalica aurie-olive cu reflexe albastre-verzui, v-am mai zis eu aici ca am sa mi-o iau, iar acum ca o am, nu ma mai satur de ea.

Iar dupa ce am purtat-o de 2 ori pe unghii va mai spun si cu ce alte impresii am ramas, inafara de cele legate cu culoarea minunata.

Nuanta: no. 68 Diving in Malaysia, un auriu-olive cu reflexe albastre-verzui
Aplicator: plat, des, lat si rotunjit, ofera o aplicare perfecta si rapida chiar si pentru cele mai neindemanatice (asa ca mine)
Acoperire: merge si cu 1 strat, dar eu prefer sa o aplic in 2
Rezistenta: in jur de 3 zile (cu base si top coat), nu e minunat dupa standardele mele, dar macar nu sare a doua zi
Timp de uscare: destul de mic, dupa ce dadeam primul strat la ambele maini, puteam deja sa trec cu al doilea la prima mana iar dupa ce terminam cu al doilea strat sa zicem ca stateam 5 minute cuminte ca sa se usuce si al doilea.
Alte aspecte: nu v-as recomanda s-o purtati fara sa fi aplicat in prealabil un vbase coat, am inteles ca ar ingalbeni unghiile, si stiu ca nu vreti sa va treziti cu unghii ingalbenite
Pret: pretul standard pentru o oja (18 lei pentru Romania)
Cantitate: 5 ml
Unde cumpar: Sephora

Ce ziceti, va place? Voua vi s-a pus pata pe vreo oja in ultimul timp?



EN: Sephora Diving in Malaysia? Yes, please! Can I have more?

Of course, as every living human being of the feminine sex, with access to internet and to the latest MUST products, I have craved for the Peridot nail polish by Chanel as soon as I saw it. I even thought that I'd make the effort (financially, because let's face it, it is not a cheap nail polish, ) and really pay those, I don't know, 30+ euros and buy it. Luckily, Sephora has the perfect dupe for Peridot at a fraction of the price, and by perfect I mean: "you can't tell the difference between them" perfect (if you don't believe me, try a search and see for yourself). So here it is, Diving in Malaysia by Sephora, a metallic gold-olive with blue-green reflections, I've "warned" you here that I was going to buy, and so I did and can't get enough of wearing it on my nails.

So, after wearing it a couple of times, here are some impressions, other than the fabulous colour :)

The color: no. 68 Diving in Malaysia, as seen in the pictures, a gorgeous gold-olive with blue-green reflections
The aplicator: flat, thick, wide and rounded, it offers perfect and equal coverage quickly, even for those more clumsy (as me)
Coverage: you can get a great coverage with just 1 coat, but I prefer 2
Resistance: about 3 days (base and top coat included), which is not great by my standards, but at least it didnt chip the next day
Drying time: relatively small, when done with the first coat on both hands I would directly move on to applying the second on the first hand and after finishing with the second coat I would wait an extra 5 minutes just to be sure
Other notable aspects: I wouldn't recommend using it without applying a base coat first, from what I've heard it tends to stain your nails, and you wind up with yellow stained nails
Price: the standard Sephora price for nail polish (4,5 euros for Romania)
Valability:
Qunatity: 5 ml
Where to buy: Sephora

What do you think, do you like it? Did you develop any recent obssesions for a certain nail polish?

  5. @S - totally agree, in cosmetice as investi si eu banii aia, decat intr-o oja. Unde mai pui ca am inteles ca ojele Chanel nu sunt nici pe departe calitative si sar a doua zi sau se vad urat, diverse :*
