OPI & Essie - Part 2

Okay, so we continue with Essie nail polishes.






First one is "Like to be bad" from the Wedding 2012 Collection. Although it is another nude colour, in comparison with OPI Hopelessly in love (mat/cream), this one has pink sparkles in it. They are not visible once the nail polish is applied. It is quite sheer and it can be a bit streaky. But, if you apply more coats you get beautiful colour like the one on the pictures. As the collection suggests, it is one of the perfect colours for weddings. :)


Prvi je iz kolekcije "Vencanje" za 2012. a naziv je "Like to be bad". Iako je ovo jos jedna od tzv. nude nijansi, u poredjenju sa OPI Hopelessly in love (koji je krem-mat), ovaj ima roze cestice u sebi, ali kada se lak nanese na nokte sljokice nisu vidljive. Prilicno je prozirna nijansa i trebalo bi naneti vise slojeva kako bi dobili ovu lepu boju sa slike iznad. I kao sto sam naziv kolekcije kaze, ovo je divna nijansa za vencanja. :)

Price/Cena: $6.99

 



Next one is the "A crewed interest" from the Spring 2012 Collection. This one is my absolute favourite! :)
Beautiful pastel peachy cream colour which can be applied in only 1 coat or more if you like a colour which is more intense. I prefer to have 2 coats but depends on your taste and mood of course. :) Big like for this one!


Sledeci je "A crewed interest" iz Prolecne kolekcije za 2012. Moj apsolutni favorit! :) Prelepa pastelna nijansa boje breskve, mat-kremaste teksture koji moze biti nanet u jednom ili vise slojeva u zavisnosti sta volite. Jedan sloj ovog laka je sasvim dovoljan, ali koliko cete naneti zavisi samo od vaseg ukusa i raspolozenja. :) 

Price/Cena: $7.10




Last but not least, "Go overboard" is an amazing blue cream colour. Definite must for this autumn in my opinion. Completely mat, very pigmented, one coat is enough. I love these "swampy" colours. :)


Poslednji za ovaj post je "Go overboard" iz istoimene kolekcije. Prelepa plava, kremasta nijansa. Potpuno je mat i veoma dobro pokriva cak i sa jednim slojem. Ove "mocvarne" nijanse su mi posebno drage i prelepe su za jesenje dane. :)

Price/Cena:  $7.10


Ok, so let's say couple of words about the webiste itself.
As I mentioned, it's a discounted nail polish store located in USA. Now, I usually check and investigate the website before ordering anything from it but this time I was probably blinded by the low prices and I ordered 6 nail polishes.
After I made my order (which was $38.99 +  $18.98 for shipping to Hungary, so $57.97 total) I started looking up for some reviews of the website and ran into some bad reviews... some people never received their orders, some received first ones and then when they ordered more, they never got anything... some received it but after 4 or more weeks waiting for it, etc. And everybody said that the customer service is really bad since you have only one email address where you can reach them. 
- My order was placed on 29th of June.
- On the 30th June they sent a confirmation email that they are preparing my order and I will receive tracking details through Stamps.com
- Since I haven't received anything for couple of days, I wrote them and email and received just "?" mark as a response with attached document that the shipping can take up to 5 weeks for delivery. So, I decided to wait and see what's gonna happen.
- On 10th July I received an email with tracking ID which was untrackable. :/
- And finaly at the end of July I received my package with one nail polish less.
Good thing is that they sent me an email on 31st July with a voucher for  $11.55 because of the nail polish they didn't have in stock. I can use it with my next purchase. That was actually very fair from their part. But, lets wait and see if it's going to be valid by the time I make my next purchase.
So, all in all, not really good customer service but the nail polishes were wrapped up really good, not damaged at all and as described. Amazing range of brands and colours but I would be cautious and would't order many nail polishes at once.
Hopefully, this was helpful for some of you.

Sad nekoliko redova o samom sajtu preko koga sam narucila.
Kao sto sam spomenula, to je sajt sa snizenim cenama lakova za nokte, locirana u Americi. Ja imam obicaj da proverim sajt pre nego sto narucim proizvode sa njega, ali ovog puta sam verovatno bila zaslepljena ovako niskim cenama i odusevljena jer isporucuju u Evropu, pa sam narucila 6 lakova.
 Tek posto sam napravila porudzbinu (koja je iznosila $38.99 za lakove +  $18.98 za isporuku u Madjarsku, sto je ukupno $57.97) pocela sam da istrazujem o samom sajtu i kako su drugi zadovoljni uslugom. Nazalost, vecina komentara je bila negativna... neki paketi nikad nisu bili isporuceni, neke devojke su dobile prve pakete, pa kada su narucile sledeci, taj nikad nije stigao, neki su dobili svoje pakete posle 5 nedelja cekanja... Sto je najgore, jedini kontakt je jedna email adresa koja je na njihovom sajtu. Ne postoji broj telefona na koji mozete da ih dobijete. Dakle, mislila sam da sam bacila pare kroz prozor. :/
E sad, hronologija porudzbine je bila sledeca:
- 29. Juna je napravljena porudzbina
- 30. su javili da je u pripremi i da cu dobiti broj sa kojim mogu da pratim paket
- posto u naredna 2 dana nisam dobila taj isti broj, napisala sam im email da vidim sta se desava i dobila odgovor koji je glasio samo "?" sa prikacenim dokumentom koji kaze da internacionalne porudzbine stizu za 5 nedelja, tako da nisam imala mnogo izbora nego da cekam. :/
- 10. Jula sam dobila broj za pracenje, ali na sajtu je bilo samo da je paket poslat i nikakvu drugu informaciju nisam mogla da dobijem...
- Iiii happy end - Krajem Jula sam konacno dobila paket! :))
Dobila sam 5 umesto 6 lakova, jer jedan nisu imali u zalihama, tako da su mi refundirali novac za taj lak i plus dodali za jos jedan u vidu vaucera koji mogu da iskoristim za sledecu kupovinu. To je bilo korektno s njihove strane, ali necu verovati dok ne napravim sledecu porudzbinu. 
Sve u svemu, losa komunikacija sa njihove strane, ali lakovi su bili odlicno zapakovani kad su stigli, nijedan nije bio ostecen i svi su bili novi, kao sto bi ih nasli i u radnjama.
Imaju prilicno veliki izbor brendova i boja, sto je odlicno i za te pare necete naci lakove kod nas, tako da bi ih preporucila, ali iskreno ne bih narucivala velike kolicine lakova odjednom vec malo po malo.
Nadam se da je ovo bilo od pomoci nekome.
