#HePicksMyPolish 2: nail polishes chosen by little mr.R

Hi! Today I have #HePicksMyPolish nail art for you. This time the nail polishes were chosen by my 19months old son. He loves playing with my nail polishes (I´m not fond of it unfortunately) and so last week he was playing with them again (he takes them out the drawer and then puts back, and then takes out and then puts back …..) and he started handing me nail polishes and he gave me these three (Orly Peachy Parrot, OPI Alpine Snow, W.I.C by Herome Kontiki Beach). Since at that point I didn´t have any good ideas for my next manicure anyway then I decided to use the polishes little mr.R gave me.

Hei! Minu tänane küünemaaling läheb kategooriasse #HePicksMyPolish – ehk siis kasutuses on kuni 3 lakki, mis valitud meessoost isiku poolt. Seekord oli lakkide valijaks minu 19kuune poeg, kellele meeldib minu küünelaki pudelitega mängida (mulle see kahjuks küll ei meeldi). Aegajalt ta jälle läheb vaikselt salaja mu küünelakkide sahtlisse sobrama ja lemmiktegevus on tal siis kõik lakid sahtlist välja tõsta ja siis sahtlisse tagasi panna ja siis jälle välja võtta jne jne jne. Seekord, aga andis ta kolm lakki ka minule ning kuna mul oli niikuinii ideede puudus, mida järgmiseks teha võiks, siis läksidki väikese mr.R poolt valitud lakid käiku. 

I have to say that little mr.R chose (ok handed me) really great polishes that look great together. The polishes he picked were Orly Peachy Parrot (seen here), W.I.C by Herome Kontiki Beach (seen here) and OPI Alpine Snow (seen here).

Pean mainima, et väikese mr.R valik (või pigem need lakid, mis ta minu kätte andis) oli täitsa hea ja need kolm lakki näevad koos head välja. Väikese mr.R poolt nö valitud lakid olid siis Orly Peachy Parrot, W.I.C by Herome Kontiki Beach ja OPI Alpine Snow.

I had a couple of ideas what to do with these three shades, but I decided to do sponging. This time I used tiny eyeshadow applicator for sponging. I started my manicure with 2 coats of W.I.C by Herome Kontiki Beach and then I started adding Peachy Parrot, Alpine Snow  and also Kontiki Beach with the little applicator. I repeated the sponging as long as I was happy with the result. I finished my manicure with  a coat of Essie Good To Go top coat.

Mul olid mõned mõtted, mida nende kolme lakiga teha võiks aga lõpuks otsustasin svammi tehnika kasuks. Seekord aga ei kasutanud ma tavapärast meigi svammi vaid hoopis väikest lauvärvide aplikaatorit. Alustasin ma enda maniküüri 2 W.I.C by Herome Kontiki Beach lakikihiga. Edasi lisasin küüntele Peachy Parrot ja Alpine Snow lakke ning ka veidi Kontiki Beach´i kasutades eelpool mainitud aplikaatorit. Maniküüri viimaseks sammuks oli kiirkuivatav pealislakk, milleks seekord oli Essie Good To Go.

#1800minutechallenge week 3 over

#1800minutechallengeHi! I can´t believe that 3 weeks of #1800minutechallenge are over :) The third week wasn´t very easy for me because I still was feeling extremely tired. I did plan to go jogging much more, but yeah… not happy about that at all :(  But brisk walking (and strolling) can be counted as a some sort of work out and so the week wasn´t totally lost :)

Hei! Uskumatu, et juba 3 nädalat #1800minutechallenge katsumusest on läbi. Kolmas nädal ei olnud lihtne, kuna väsimus piinas mind koguaeg. Mul oli plaanis jooksma jõuda ikka vähemalt pooltel päevadel, aga jah…. jõudu lihtsalt ei olnud :( Õnneks aga saab ka kiires tempos kõndimist (ja kärutamist) mingisuguseks trenniks lugeda ja seega kõik veel kadunud ei olnud :)

1800minutechallenge

So as you can see what I mostly did last week was walking. I went jogging only once – yesterday. I it seems that I´ve finally recovered from 30km Scoutsrännak with 20kg backpack on April 3rd, because lately when I have gone jogging then I have been dyeing on the track, but yesterday I was feeling great at last :D On Friday I planned to do some yoga&pilates blend exercises, but since I was in the hurry then I just didn´t have time for that (bad bad time management, I guess and way too many things to do). On Saturday I did the Standing ABS exercises twice. On Sunday I got back home from my weekend trip and went rollerblading. I actually managed to skate little over 20km.

Nagu tabelist näha, siis põhiliselt ma eelmisel nädalal ainult tegelesingi kõndimisega. Jooksma jõudsin vaid ühe korra – eile. Tundub, et ma olen vist lõpuks 30km Scoutsrännakust koos 20kg seljakotiga taastunud, sest eile tundsin ma joostes end väga hästi ja ei olnud tunnet, et kohe varsti annan otsad. Reedene päev jäi täitsa trennivabaks. Mul oli küll plaan reedesse mahutada pilatese&jooga segu harjutused video järgi, ent kahjuks kimbutas mind ajapuuudus ja nii ta siis jäigi. Laupäeval tegin 2x Standing ABS harjutusi. Pühapäeval jõudsin tagasi koju väikeselt nädalavahetuse reisilt ning käisin rulluisutamas ja sõitsin 20km :)

Here are some of my favorite jogging & rollerblading songs

Is there any drama in Avon Super Drama mascara?

Hi! My today´s review is about Avon Super Drama mascara in black. I ordered it from Avon couple of months ago, because of it catchy name – Super Drama :D I hoped that maybe it will really add some dramatic length and volume to my lashes. My first experiences with this mascara weren´t very good. I seriously hated it the first 2-3 times I used it. But I have learnt that you can´t really judge a mascara just after few uses and so I continued using it…. So did it become any better? Read on to find out.

Hei! Minu tänane arvustus on Avon Super Drama ripsmetuššist, mille tellisin endale mõned kuud tagasi Avon´ st. Peamine põhjus, miks seda üldse proovida tahtsin oli selle nimi – Super Drama. Lootsin, et ehk tõesti lisab see tušš mu ripsmetele dramaatilist pikkust ja volüümi. Kahjuks aga minu esimesed kogemused selle ripsmekaga olid üsna halvad ja olin oma ostus pettunud. Ent asi mida olen õppinud oma ilublogija aastate jooksul on see, et ripsmetuššile (ega ka eriti ühelegi teisele ilutootele) ei saa anda lõplikku hinnangut peale paari kasutuskorda. Seega jätkasin Super Drama ripsmeka kasutamist …. Aga kas minu arvamus sellest muutus paremaks? Loe edasi.

Avon Super Drama Mascara in black

Avon Super Drama mascara is promised to give show stopping lashes with a flair of drama. Its unique brush and formula  instantly add volume and length without clumping Also it is smudge and flake proof.

Avon Super Drama ripsmetušš peaks lubaduste kohaselt anda pilkupüüdvalt kenad dramaatlised ripsmed. Ripsmetuši unikaalne hari ja koostis lisavad koheselt pikkust ja volüümi ning ei jäta tükke. Samuti ei peaks see ripsmekas määrima ega pudenema hakkama.

Avon Super Drama mascara wand looks unique indeed. When I received the product then I did not have much belief in this wand, because it looked quite weird and not very effective.

Avon Super Drama ripsmetuši hari  näeb tõesti välja unikaalne. Kui ma esimest korda seda nägin, siis mul selle efektiivsusesse usku polnud kuna see näeb välja üsna veider.

My thoughts about Avon Super Drama mascara

As I mentioned before then my first experiences with this mascara were awful. The formula of the mascara seemed quite wet and it clumped my lashes together and also I did not notice much length. At that point I was seriously disappointed in it and regretted even purchasing it.  Well, but I did not stop using it after few bad experiences, because I hoped that maybe, just maybe it is one of those mascaras which just become good after a week or so. Well …. luckily it became much better and it ended in my March favorites.

As you can see from the photos above it adds nice volume and length to my lashes just in one coat. I wouldn´t say this mascara is totally clump free, but it is smudge and flake free. It stays on my lashes all day and it doesn´t start smudging even after work out session. Also this mascara hasn´t caused irritation and it is easy to remove (even with useless Blum Naturals eye makeup remover! :D). When it comes to the pretty weird mascara wand then I´m still not loving it, because it isn´t the most convenient wand for mascara application.

In conclusion Avon Super Drama mascara does give nice length and volume to my lashes even though the mascara wand it miss in my opinion. It is not the best mascara that I´ve used but it is in top 5 for me.

Have you used this or any other Avon mascaras?

Minu arvamus Avon Super Drama ripsmetušist 

Nagu juba mainisin, siis minu esimesed muljed sellest ripsmetušist olid üsna jubedad. Ripsmeka koostis oli alguses üsna vedel ning kippus jätma ripsmeid tükki ning samuti ei märganud ma, et see mu ripsmed pikemaks oleks muutnud. Sel hetkel olin Avoni Super Drama ripsmetušis pettunud ning kahetsesin selle ostu. Aga üldiselt ma peale paari kasutuskorda ripsmetuššide suhtes alla ei anna ja seega kasutasin ka seda edasi lootuses, et äkki ikka muutub nädalaga koostis veidi kuivemaks ja normaalsemaks. Ja õnneks nii ka juhtus ja lõpuks sai see ripsmetušš ära märgitud ka minu märtiskuistes ilulemmikutes

Nagu fotodelt näha, siis Avon Super Drama ripsmetušš lisab mu ripsmetele pikkust ja volüümi juba vaid ühe kihiga. Ma ei ütleks, et see ripsmekas ei jäta üldse ripsmeid tükki. Samas aga see tõesti ei määri ja püsib ilma pudenemata mu ripsmetel terve päev ja elab üle ka trennis higistamise. Positiivne on ka see, et minu silmi Avon Super Drama ripsmetušš ärritanud ei ole ning selle eemaldamine keeruline ei ole(isegi muidu üsna kasutu Blum Natruals silmameigieemaldajaga). Mis puutub aga selle ripsmetuši kummalisse harja, siis see küll mulle endiselt ei meeldi kuna sellega tuši ripsmetele kandmine ei ole kõige mugavam. 

Kokkuvõttes on tegu aga hea ripsmetušiga, mis minu ripsmetele lisab volüümi ja pikkust, ent samas selle harjake on küll minu arvates üsna mööda. See ei ole kõige parem ripsmetušš mida ma kasutanud olen, ent samas kuulub see hetkel mu top 5 hulka küll.

Kas sina oled seda või mõnda teist Avoni ripsmetuši kasutanud?
