Summer favorites and haul

Hello my lovelies! August is over, which means a little recap is in order. I didn't do one of these posts for July, just because there wasn't much to show, so now I have two months worth of favorites and purchases to show you (hence the title). It's been quite a busy summer for me so nail art wasn't my priority. I didn't post much and the manicures I posted were quite simple. I did manage to gather a few favorites though so here they are.

Monday Blues: OPI Can't Find My Czechbook

Hello my lovelies! It's the first day of September which means summer is over but it also means it's time for a new start. There's something awesome about months that start on a Monday. It's the perfect day to make resolutions and start new projects. My resolution for this month is to be a better blogger and post more. Let's see how it's gonna go. The first blue of the month is a truly awesome one. It comes from the OPI Euro Centrale collection and it's the first polish from this collection that I actually own. I have previously tried You're Such a Budapest and My Vampire Is Buff, but wasn't impressed by neither of them. It's a whole other story with this one though.

Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: Letter R and a Mani Swap

Hello my lovelies! It's the weekend, yaay! I woke up this morning in a really good mood and didn't want to leave my bed because I'm currently reading a great book (Stephen King's Doctor Sleep). I finally decided to get my act together and write this post for you because I'm really excited to show today's manicure. First off, some of you might remember the Alphabet Nail Art Challenge that I participated in a couple of times. It's been a long while since I did a manicure for this challenge and it was high time because they got to letter R already so it's gonna be over soon. This week's theme was perfect for what I already wanted to show you today. My first ever mani swap! If you don't know what that is, you basically get inspired by another nail artist and recreate one of their manicures while they recreate one of your manicures as well. Naturally my first ever mani swap had to be with my best friend in the nail world and a person who has become a great friend in my real life too. Her name is Kinga and we met on Instagram over a year ago. After that we met in real life and we now live 10 minutes away from each other. She also has a blog called Polish Blue My Mind, so I urge you to get over there and show her some love because she's incredibly talented. I recreated one of my favorite manicures from her blog. Here's what came out.

Color Club Disco Dress

Hello my lovelies! It's been a very long week and I'm so glad that it's finally Friday. I'm trying to get rid of my backlog of manicures from the last months because I really need to show you the newer ones. A few days ago I randomly found these pictures that are about two months old and decided to show them to you even though I'm not completely satisfied with how they came out. I got this polish in my latest Head2toe Beauty haul that I now realize I forgot to show you. It's very bright, almost a neon, but because it's a darker color it doesn't fall exactly in the neon category.

Monday Blues: Sinful Colors Cinderella

Hello my lovelies! I won't even mention the m-word today because it's painful enough as it is. I will just get straight to the blue and hope this day goes by as fast as possible. The blue I'm showing you today is a very famous one and I think a lot of you have heard about it. As I mentioned in my previous post, Sinful Colors is a brand that is not available in my country, so even though Cinderella was on my lemming list, I was pretty sure that I will never get my hands on it. Luckily, I found a SC display in an Italian drugstore when I was on my trip, so this beauty came home with me.
