English version below.

Lijep pozdrav svima vama koji ste kliknuli da čitate pa tko god da ste. :D Nisam pisala više od mjesec dana, uzela sam sebi mali odmor od svega jer ljeto tako djeluje na mene. Ulijenim se šta se može. :D Čitala sam i tijekom ovog svog "odmora" postove dragih blogokolegica i pronašla ovaj tag kod Sanele na blogu inSANEnails (klik da čitate :D). Meni se tag svidio, a ona je tagirala sviju koji ga žele raditi. Pa hajde da počnem. :)

Greetings to everyone who wanted to read this, doesn't matter who you are. :D I didn't write anything in more than a month, I took myself a little vacation from everything, because that's how summer affects me. I get lazy what can you do. :D During that "vacation" I had, I was still reading a lot of blog posts from other bloggers. I found this tag post on Sanela's blog inSANEnails. She tagged everyone to do it if they want. I really liked the questions so I decided to do it. Let's get started. :)


1. Koji lak trenutno nosiš na noktima (i ruke i stopala)? // What nail polish are you wearing on your nails (and toes) right now?

U trenutku dok pišem ovaj post na rukama nosim nail art koji ste, ako me pratite, imali priliku vidjet na mom Instagram profilu. Za nožne sam trenutno izabrala Avonov GEL SHINE lak u nijansi Emerald City (opisan ovdje).

Right now, while I'm writing, I'm  wearing this nail art that I recently posted on my Instagram profile. For my toes I chose to wear Avon's GEL SHINE nail polish in shade Emerald City (read more about it here).

2. Jedan proizvod za nokte bez kojeg ne možeš živjeti? // What is one nail product you can't live without?

Mislim da stvarno ne bih mogla izdržati bez rašpice za nokte, bez svega ostalog bih nekako preživjela. Ovo mi je stvarno najpotrebnije.

I think there is no way I could survive without a nail file. That is the most important thing to use for my nails, everything else can wait.

3. Koji je tvoj omiljeni brand opredijeljen uređivanju noktiju (mainstream and indie)? // What is your favorite nail brand (mainstream and indie)?

Od mainstream brandova Essie me fascinira, ali on spada među skuplje brandove. Kod nas između ostalog rado kupujem Flormar i Golden Rose i sasvim sam zadovoljna kvalitetom. :) Od indie brandova mi je želja probati Picture Polish lakove, oduševljena sam izborom. Još uvijek nemam nekog iskustva s tim brandovima pa tako nemam ni omiljeni.

If I had to choose between mainstream brands I would go for Essie. But that one is more expensive so I prefer to use Flormar or Golden Rose which are also great and I'm really pleased with their quality. I don't have much experience when it comes to indie brands but I would really like to try out Picture Polish nail polishes. Right now, I'm fascinated by them and pretty much everything they offer. :)

4. Koju veličinu noktiju nosiš (kratke ili duge)? // What shape nail do you wear (short or long)?

Nikad me nisu nešto posebno fascinirali dugi nokti. Uvijek radije biram kraće, ne previše, idem na neku normalnu dužinu. Oblik varira u zavisnosti od raspoloženja, najčešće idem na oval i squoval. :)

I have never been fascinated by long nails. I would always rather go for shorter nails, although not too short. The shape varies based on my moods. I usually go for oval or squoval. :)

5. Koja je tvoja boja za svaki dan?// What is your go-to colour?

Najradije biram boje koje bi mi išle uz sve prilike i kombinacije. To su neke nude ili pastelne nijanse sa možda naglaskom na jedan nokat (najčešće prstenjak) na koji bih stavila neki sjajni lak.

I prefer to use colours that match all my outfits and occasions. That means I mostly use nude and pastel shades with maybe one accent nail (usually my ring finger). All I use for that accent nail is just shiny glitter polish.

6. Koji je tvoj najdraži finiš? // What is your favorite nail polish finish?

Rado eksperimentiram sa završecima i koristim sve lakove. Ipak najčešće koristim i najviše volim kremasti finish na lakovima, ali odgovara mi i mat. 

I love to experiment and use all kinds of nail polishes. Although I prefer to use creamy nail polishes and sometimes I use matte ones too.

7. Što se nalazi na tvojoj listi želja u vezi lakova? // What's on your nail polish wishlist?

Već sam spomenula da bih voljela probati Picture Polish lakove. Uz njih jos ILNP, El Corazon, A England i još neke ali ovdje ću se zaustaviti. :D Ima toga dosta, možda nekada napravim i poseban post posvećen wish listi. :)

I already mentioned that I would like to try Picture Polish nail polishes. Besides that I would like to have ILNP, El Corazon, A England nail polishes and some more, but this is enough for now. :D There's a lot of things I would like to try out and maybe I'll make a blog post all about my wish list. :)

8. Kada najčešće lakiraš nokte (jutro, popodne ili navečer)? // When do you usually paint your nails (morning, afternoon or evening)? 

Najčešće to radim poslijepodne, nekako mi tada najviše odgovara. :)

I usually do it in the afternoon, somehow that's the best time for me. :)

9. Koji je za tebe najbolji trik u vezi noktiju? // What's your top nail tip you swear by?

To bi definitivno bilo korištenje kokosovog ulja na noktima za hidrataciju i njegu nakon skidanja starog laka acetonom. Nakon pola sata ili sat, kada se nokti dovoljno nahrane uljem, ruke i nokte temeljito operem vodom i sapunom i onda nanesem Eveline 8u1. Ta "mala rutina" u njezi mi je jako pomogla rastu i zdravlju noktiju, možda uspije i vama. :)

My top nail tip would definitely be using coconut oil on my nails for hydration and nourishment after using acetone to take off old polish. After half an hour or hour, when nails absorb all the oil, I thoroughly wash my hands and nails with soap and water and then I apply Eveline 8in1. That "small routine" helped me a lot and my nails grew out stronger and healthier. Maybe it could work for you too.

10. Zbog kojeg se laka kaješ što si ga kupila? // What nail polish do you regret buying?

Ovdje sam pisala o Eveline SOS laku za nokte pa možete pročitati koje su mu mane. Ima njih još, ali evo izdvojiti ću ovaj.

I wrote about Eveline SOS nail polish here so you can read why I don't like it. There is a few more of them but I'll just mention this one. 

11. Neon ili pastelni lakovi? Svijetli ili tamni? // Neons or pastels? Brights or darks?

Radije biram pastelne nijanse, neon lakove samo nekad na ljeto, ali rijetko. Volim nositi svijetle i tamne, ali pošto sam na prvom pitanju već izabrala pastelne nijanse, ovdje biram tamne lakove. :)

I prefer to use pastels over neons. I use neons in summertime but rarely. I like to wear brights as much as I like darks, but since I already chose pastels, here I choose darks.

12. Koji je po tebi najbolji bijeli, crni i nude lak za nokte? // What's your holy grail white, black and nude nail polish?

Bijeli lak koji trenutno koristim je Flormar mada mislim da ću ga uskoro zamijeniti Essenceovim gel shine. 
Crni je od Essence iz linije gel shine i pokriva u jednom sloju, odličan za pečatiranje. Od nude lakova nemam određenog favorita, volim gotovo sve Avon nude nijanse. :)

White nail polish that I'm currently using is Flormar, but I think I'll switch that one for Essence gel shine white nail polish.
The black one is from Essence gel shine edition, one coat is enough and it's great for stamping.
I don't have a favorite when it comes to nude nail polishes, I like almost all of Avon's nude polishes.

13. Koji brand želiš isprobati ali još uvijek nisi? // What is one brand you want to try but haven't yet?

Uz brandove za liste želja, već odavno želim isprobati O.P.I. i China Glaze lakove. 

Besides all of the brands I mentioned in my wish list, I want to try O.P.I. and China Glaze nail polishes.

To bi bilo to što se tiče ovog posta. Neću nikoga posebno tagovati da radi post, neka ga uradi tko želi i kome su pitanja barem malo zanimljiva. :) Ako ne želite raditi post, možete na neka pitanja odgovoriti u komentarima ili mi postaviti još neka ako vas nešto zanima. :)
Hvala na čitanju i posjeti! :*


That is it. I won't tag anyone, I'll give a chance to everyone who want to do this tag to do it. Hopefully you find the questions interesting. If you don't want to do a post, you can answer some of the questions in comments. You can also ask me something else that you want to know. :)

Thank you for your time! :*
