Alessandro International usually creates their nail polishes as normal nail polishes but also Striplac, the system where you need a light but it's not a real gel because you can peel the polish off your nails after a week or so. The Striplacs are CHF 14.90 for 5ml, the nail polishes CHF 15.90 for 10ml.
I like Striplac because it lasts a long time and if I know I don't have time to do my nails and need them to look good several times during the week, I choose Striplac. Nevertheless, I try not to use it twice in a row because I find it drying for the nails and I want to keep them as healthy looking as possible.
|Coral Haze - Sorry for the bad quality|
If you're looking for a gift for your little sister, your niece or some other beauty queen to be, you should check out the "We love macarons" hand creams (CHF 5.90 for 15ml). Or you could buy them for yourself, because the design is absolutely adorable, looking at the packaging just makes me smile. However, the product inside smells really sweet. The pink one is strawberry scented and there's a pistachio and a lemon version, too. The product contains hyaluronic acid and shea butter and has a thick texture. It sinks in quickly and feels sticky at first but at the same time it's dry, so you won't leave fingerprints everywhere. Maybe "waxy" is the best way to describe the strange feeling after applying it. It's not unpleasant and my hands are soft and smooth now, it just feels unfamiliar.
In my opinion, the shades of the B.Blush collection are perfect for spring and I enjoy wearing all of them. The Macarons hand cream does a good job too, but the scent is too strong for me so I wouldn't repurchase it. Both collections are in stores now.
Which one is your favourite shade?
Have a lovely day!
