>Hello Everyone =) Today I wanted to share what’s in my make-up bag. I have a decent stash of make-up products, I got them all before my nail polish addiction suddenly came to life last year. But I always have my small make-up bag with me, and regarding the fact I can’t carry around too many things, I only have some select items inside. Here is how my make-up bag looks like:

I got this at Claire’s for 10$, I think. But it was about two years ago. I love it, because it can hold so many things!

This is how it looks inside, it has a small mirror and cute pink stars on black. =)

Let me start with the eye stuff.
From Top to Bottom: Rimmel London Sexy Curves Mascara, MAC Penulitmate Eye Liner in Rapidblack, #22 Brush by Sephora, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in Lust and Zero.

T-B: MAC Eye Shadow Suite in Team Violets, Urban Decay E/S in Goddess, Too Faced E/S Duo in Skinny Dip, Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

Lancome Color Focus Palette in L’amante du Matin, and Inglot lash curler. I love the packaging of the Lancome =)

Finally, lip and cheek stuff.
T-B: Guerlain brush, Golden Rose Ceramic polish in #135, (which I only got today and stuffed inside my make-up bag to avoid breakage), Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips gloss in Bambi, Stila Convertible Lip&Cheek Color in Peony, Inglot Pressed Powder.

That’s a lot of stuff for a small bag, don’t you think? =)
Finally, here is the polishing & konading I quickly did today:

Golden Rose Ceramic #135, with konad m64 in white on top. =)

I tag any of you who wants to share their make-up bags =)

By the way, NOX Twilight has sent me a sample pack to review! I’m waiting for my nails to grow out a bit, so I can shape them & swatch those six gorgeous polishes for you!

A Little Poll:

Do you like to see make-up related posts in nail polish blogs?
Don’t mind.
No way!

Herkese merhaba. Bugün sizinle makyaj çantamın içindekileri paylaşmak istedim. Oldukça fazla makyaj malzmemem var ve neredeyse hepsini geçen yıl başlayan oje çılgınlığına kapılmadan önce almıştım. Ama yanımda her zaman küçük makyaj çantamı taşıyorum ve içine çok fazla şey sığmayacağı için sadece favori ürünlerim bulunuyor içinde.
Makyaj çantamı iki yıl önce Claire’s ten 16 Liraya almıştım. Küçük gözükmesine rağmen içine bir sürü şey sığıyor. İçinde aynası da var.
Göz malzemelerim: Rimmel London Sexy Curves Maskara, MAC Penulitmate Eye Liner, Sephora #22 fırça, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Göz kalemi, mor ve siyah, MAC Eye Shadow Suite Team Violets ikili far, Urban Decay Goddess far, Too Faced Skinny Dip ikili far, Too Faced far bazı, Lancome Color Focus Palette dörtlü far, Inglot kirpik maşası.
Dudak, yanak, tırnak vs: Guerlain fırça, Golden Rose Ceramic oje #135 numara, Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips gloss (Bambi), Stila Yanak ve Dudak renklendiricisi (Peony), Inglot Pudra.
Son olarak bugün yaptığım manikür, Golden Rose Ceramic #135 numara üzerine konad m64 ve beyaz ile desen yaptım.
Bu arada yakında NOX Twilight ojeleri ile karşınızda olacağım.

>I’m back =) Say hi to my nubbins =D Kidding aside, I’m grateful for every day I’m healthy, and a pair of broken nails are nothing serious. They grow back, so no problem =)
Here is today’s mani, 4 coats of warm red jelly with tiny gold glitter, same brand and texture as my Starry Winter Night mani base polish. Festive! Although we don’t have Christmas in Turkey, I still feel close to the colors around this time of the year =) Then I did the rose design from plate m40 in white. The roses sort of remind me of mistletoes, I don’t know why. By the way, I keep diluting the tiny 5ml bottle of white polish, and it still works! Yay, thanks to the guy who invented polish restorer. The best thing about the restorer is, it can even recover a konad special polish, and while thinning it considerably, it doesn’t affect the opaqueness in a bad way. I definitely recommend thinning konad special polishes drop by drop, when they’re starting to thicken. Enough babbling, on to the pictures!

I corrected the colors here, because my camera suddenly thought I must be an alien. My hands were green on all the pictures. =)

With flash. Look at my pinky. Baaaw!

And Finally, Sasha tagged me with “5 Guys I Used To Like” tag. Thank you, Sasha!

Around year 2000, I was a hardcore fan of the movie Matrix. I was seriously addicted, hence the name Trincess =) I watched The Matrix about… 44 times. I always cried in the end, lol =) Although I watched the sequels several ten times too, I didn’t love them as much. They just weren’t the same! And Neo (Keanu Reeves) was my hero for years. I still love him, he’s a gorgeous guy =)

Raphaël Vogt is a German/French actor, who used to play in German soap opera, “Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten” (Good Times, Bad Times). I watched it when I was in high school. It was very, I mean very cheesy =) I watched it for Raphaël, because I loved the character he played (Nico), and his good looks =)

Johnny Depp. I mean, how can anyone not love Johnny Depp? My love for him is eternal =)

Kivanc Tatlitug, Turkish model and actor. He is seriously good-looking. I liked a character he played a few years ago, and I think he’s humble in spite of his good looks. =)

Finally Hugh Laurie, the delicious doctor from House, M.D. I wonder how many English guys are out there, who could play an American doctor so well? He seriously makes my heart melt! He is one of my all-time favourite actors.

I wonder if I was kind of a rule breaker, because I can’t let people go easily =) There are not many guys who I “used to like”, because I still like them =)

But most of all:

My guy! ♥♥♥ =)))

I’m tagging:

>A few days ago I was trying to create a sheer blush using a very pale jelly polish and some drops of red. That’s when I accidentaly poured 1/4 bottle of red into the pale polish, and I had this medium, bright jelly pink. Yesterday I put it on, it looked very cool and squishy, but I’m not very fond of medium pinks, and I topped it with Inglot 202 flakes. Today I stamped it with m63 and black polish, but my black is dying and although I diluted it a bit with polish thinner, it’s a sticky mess and though to work with. My Mavadry is on its last drops, and it smeared the konad like crazy. Finally I put on some white bows to cover the Konad failures, which got smeared, too. That’s why the far shot =)

See the flakies? This mani actually looks cool from a distance. I’d like to repeat it when I have a new black & white, and with another base color.

I can hardly tolerate konad mistakes on myself. I’m kinda OCD =)

>Today’s post is not directly nail related =) My mani is still perfect, without tipwear, and I’ll try to keep it until it chips. Gildedangel from Naive Nails tagged me for “I love your blog!” award. Thank you, gildedangel, I really appreciate this =)
I also know her from Specktra, and I obviously love her blog =) She has been already tagged, therefore I’m not tagging her again =)

I know it’s a hard thing to pick only 15 blogs, I want to make sure that I love reading every blog on my blogroll. Anyway, here are 15 blogs I love to read (in no particular order):

Jellynat: Nathalie is a wonderful lady from France, who is very friendly, has a great personality and also gorgeous nails. And I enjoy seeing the colors of her choice on those nails.

Polish Hoarder Disorder: I just discovered her blog and fell in love with her konad ideas =) She makes those nails look beautiful and inspires me every time she does a new konadicure.

Azatoth Nail Art: Another new discovery. Look at those nails! There is so much creativity and patience in her work. And she makes those Fauxnad plates r-o-c-k! =)

Fab Ur Nails: Thrizsha is also one of the very creative konad lovers, who layers stamping in a very efficient way. I especially love her themed manis.

Lemming Monster: I simply love how she models with her hands =) She makes me wanna buy polishes I never intended to buy!

Kronicles of a Konader: Powerlifterchick does her manicures exactly how I like them, our tastes are much alike. I feel very familiar around her blog.

The Hungry Asian: Kae has beautiful nails, takes beautiful pictures and shows me polishes I either love very much, or I’ve been wanting for a long time =) I always have appetite for new polishes when I look at her blog =)

Getcha Nails Did: Brooke is a polish monster, but in a good way! She either has some new stuff, or old goodies, or frankens, or great konad ideas. Sometimes she posts multiple times a day, and she is so friendly and encouraging around new bloggers!

Nihrida: I love Sasha’s style =) She is very talented, has great tutorials, a wonderful personality, and every nail she does – whether konad or not – is spectacular.

Never Too Much Glitter: I’ve been following Jen’s blog for such a long time, she does great frankens, and is a very sweet and nice lady. I love everything about her nails, and she kindly answers every question someone asks – and tries to fulfill many reader requests. Just make sure to visit her Etsy shop – she has great fake nail designs!

Mini Nail Blog: The blog owner is very crafty, her fake nails are so artistic! I love her stuff. She also makes stuff like earrings, accessories, etc. I always wonder how she manages to make those tiny decorations on her nails. =)

Polish Lounge: She is a nice Austrian lady with great nails, nice konad combinations (which always attract my attention) and generous giveaways. She wrote her blog bilingual, but lately changed to English-only.

The Daily Nail: A nail a day is her challenge =) She does spectacular designs, more of a highly detailed art work. I always admire her patience and accuracy.

Dr. Frankenpolish: Another franken master like Never Too Much Glitter, Amanda creates polishes which I think should be mass produced. Luckily she includes the recipes for us DIY lovers.

Scrangie: If it wasn’t for her swatches, I would have never gotten into this polish business. That’s all I’m telling about her.

Like I said, I love every blog on my Blogroll, otherwise they wouldn’t be there! Duh.
Out of topic but I’m just so excited for China Glaze’s Up&Away collection. China Glaze included more pictures, and I’m definitely getting Light As Air, Re-Fresh Mint, Happy Go Lucky, Lemon Fizz, Peachy Keen & Something Sweet! And their Poolside Collection looks so promising, too.
