Barbie turned 53 today!
She changed a lot in 53 years and I must say she got better with age
In 1959 she looked like this: Beautiful, pale and stylish
In 1960's Barbie was quite conservative and traditional as a Nurse and French Fashionista In 1970's iconic Malibu Barbie emerged.
In my opinion she started the whole "Barbie" trend - tanned skin, blonde hair and long legs. She also came with a BF Ken
and camper van
Barbie industry was going strong in 80's. She appeared in vast range of outfist and collections
From sweet Peaches n Cream
To Over-The-Top Rocker Barbie and Holiday Barbies
I grew up in 90's. I remember my best friend's sister brought this one home from Italy in 1991 It was in the former Soviet State and Barbies were very rare and highly prized so to me it was the most beautiful thing ever.
Totally Hair Barbie and Teresa were very popular This add used to mesmerise me, it was played during Disney series
Fake anything especially make-up makes me very angry!
Yesterday I was browsing Ebay because I wanted to get some OPI nail polishes and came across few clearly fake ones.
I got few OPIs from Ebay and never had an issue. Mine came from US sellers who charged US retail prices for their polishes. They sold lots and lots of them and seemed to specialize in nail products.
Yesterday I came across few lots of "OPI" nail polishes. I saw fair dew lots from sellers who don't particularly specialize in nail products. They were "factory seconds" and were missing a label. The shades were very random and I never saw those shades in OPI collections. However I know that some counterfeit OPIs will have a lable with colour name on it.
I was fortunate enough and never got a fake OPI nail polish. So I will show you what a REAL one looks like.
1. The front of the bottle
Note the writing. There are some variations between old and new editions of OPI but the writing at the front is the…
These days I embrace nude nails. They are very
work-appropriate and come in various finishes. These are some shades from
1. Christina Fitzgerald - Hilda
2 .Christina Fitzgerald - Angela
3. Natio - Divine
4. Ulta 3 - Spring Blossom
5. Sportsgirl - Nude
6. Ulta 3 - Jazzle
7. OPI - Tickle my France-y
8. OPI - Dulce De Leche
9. OPI - Barefoot in Barcelona
10. China Glaze - Sunset Sail
11. OPI - At First Sight
12. Ulta 3 - Allure
...and without flash.
Out of this lot OPI nail polishes are my favourite. They have superb finish, application and drying time. I know some people compare Ulta 3 to OPI but to me they are incomparable. Ulta 3 is good value for money nail polish and lets you try lots and lots of colours without breaking your bugdet. But when it comes to the quality of the actual product OPI is far more superior.
