Essence Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 Collection (official info + photos) is available in the shops from the beginning of this month so I’m sure that some of you already had the chance to see the new products in person or even buy something. Being a fan of the Twilight Saga movie series myself, I’ve went to the cinema last weekend to see the movie but honestly I left a little disappointed because I waited a year for this Breaking Dawn second part to come out and the action was kind of missing except the 5 minutes of that imaginary battle.
In order to celebrate the launch of Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 movie but also the makeup collection inspired by the film, you have the chance to win lots of fantastic prizes awarded in collaboration with Media Pro Distribution.
From this collection I received from Essence Romania only the nail polishes which are 4 new shades available in Limited Edition and for a limited time in the shops, the same as the rest of the products featured in this collection. Being a special edition collection the prices are a little bit higher than the usual ones so each nail polish retails for 10.00/ €1.99 Lei and offers 10 ml/ 0.33 fl oz of product.
Romania/ International – now at Marionnaud, Douglas, Muller, B&B and individual perfumeries (Romanian beauty shops list) and online @1001cosmetice.ro, @machiaj-online@ro.

Even though we are still in November and winter season hasn’t even yet began I have a lot of information piling up about upcoming Spring 2013 Makeup & Nail Polish Collections. Some beauty brands have already released official info and promo images about their future collections while others gave only sneak peek photos, some of the upcoming products names and hosted press launch events to announce their new collections.
When I counted today the 42 articles I wrote so far about the new spring 2013 launches I decided to start this round-up post which I will update every single time with new collection launches or different posts with swatches, official info or products’ presentation from the press launch events.
If you also have any particular brand in mind that you want me to find out information about their upcoming spring collection please fell free to post a comment at the bottom of this post or leave me a message on Chicprofile’s Facebook Page or email me trough my Contact form. Since I received a lot of requests about high-end brands’ spring 2013 collections I tried to gather information/ photos about these first and most of them are almost complete.

I’m very happy that I finally got to see China Glaze Holiday 2012 Holiday Joy Collection & Gift Sets (official info & promo images) in person thanks to China Glaze Romania because since I first posted sneak peek photos of China Glaze Holiday Joy nail polishes back in the spring I was really hoping we could fast forward to this time of year so I can feast my eyes on the new colors but also on the new China Glaze Holiday 2012 Nail Polish Gift Sets.
If you are a nail polish addict you will definitely pick something up from this collection and the beautiful and various gift sets can become a perfect Christmas gift for your friends and family members or why not for yourself. There are 13 nail polish sets to choose from, each one combining different full size nail lacquers from Holiday Joy collection and also a special surprise gift. It’s very easy to find your favorite color combination from this variety of sets and you can take advantage of the promo prices. Even if some sets contain 2, 3 or even more nail polishes the price of each set is less expensive than if you would choose to buy the polishes separately.
Now let’s get back to the main China Glaze Holiday Joy Collection which features 12 nail lacquers in vibrant pigmented cremes, sparkling glitters or multi-dimensional glitter blend with different color flakes. I swatched every single shade from this collection and the ones that got my attention are definitely the glittery ones which I will review later on. I haven’t decided yet which nail lacquers I request to review so if you have any favorites please let me know.

Since I gave you a sneak peek of China Glaze Winter Cirque du Soleil Collection back in summer I became very interested in this collection. Then again when I heard that Ardell paired with China Glaze for this collection and they will launch a new set of false lashes, things became more and more interesting and I would probably go to see the movie next month. I know I posted already two times about this collection but after the poster of China Glaze Cirque du Soleil Worlds Aways and Ardell eyelash photos from last week I received a few requests for the close-up photos of the new nail polishes and pairs or false eyelashes.
From the big top to the big screen, visionary filmmaker James Cameron and writer/director Andrew Adamson invite you on an all new 3D adventure: “Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away.” A young couple who is separated must journey through the astonishing and dreamlike worlds of Cirque du Soleil to find each other as audiences experience the immersive 3D technology that will allow them to leap, soar, swim and dance with the performers.
The new China Glaze and Ardell “Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away” inspired nail polish and eyelash collections will bring to life the wonderfully exotic artistry that is presented throughout the film. The China Glaze nail polish collection combines rich crèmes, soft shimmers and bold glitters to create 12 limited edition shades.
The “Cirque du Soleil: Wolds Away” inspired collection from Ardell consists of six attention-grabbing lash styles ranging from more natural styles to feathers and jewel embellished lash strips.
International Launch Date – 1 December 2012 at salons and specialty beauty retails nationwide, Sally Beauty Supply, ULTA

I have another chic preview for you and it’s Kinetics Flirt Collection (info & promo images) which features 14 nail polishes with different textures and finishes in vibrant and pastel colors. Pink and coral shades are dominant in this collection but there are also some interesting greens, a a dark purple and a vibrant turquoise. Kinetics Flirt is really quite a big nail polish collection and almost everyone can find their desired shade or a favorite finish or formula. Some of these shades come in very natural sheer colors and not even two coats will give you full opacity but they are meant for a natural and simple manicure while other colors have a nice shimmery finish or a luscious shine.
I already have a few favorites from this collection but because we are talking about 14 shades it will take quite a while to post all the individual reviews. I usually wear a nail polish for about 3 to 5 days before I will write my review because I want to see how long lasting it is and how well the color behaves in time.
Now @kineticsnails.com, @kiriloff.ro, @margaritabelska.com, Exclusive Beauty Line Academy in Bucharest
If you have any preferences among these shades just let me know and I will try to review those first. Each nail polish contains 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz of product and costs €5.95 – 25.00 Lei. In the meantime please enjoy more photos and check out the swatches. Continue reading ‘Kinetics Flirt Nail Polish Collection – Preview, Swatches & Photos’
I’ve been postponing this post for a long long time and I really wanted to write it earlier after the presentation of Kinetics Winter 2012 Let’s Pink Collection (info & promo images) but I wanted to purchase a color chart first I wouldn’t have to swatch all the colors everytime on my nails. I received all the polishes featured in this collection and I’ve already tried some of them so if you have any favorites please leave me a comment so I will review them first.
At first this collection might not seem so interesting because it does contain quite a few dark shades and some brown undertones polishes but you can also find a pink pop of color. If you are into darker shades like I’m discovering this collection and testing the polishes is quite intriguing. I started wearing Royal Ink a beautiful dark rich purple with blue undertones and I will probably finish with the brown polishes. What I like about this collection is the variety of finishes and formulas it has to offer, cremes, glitters and even soft neons.

OPI Spring 2013 Euro Centrale Collection is not a news anymore since a pre-launch event has been hosted in Budapest last month and even before that sneak peek photos started to pop-out almost on every beauty blog. In case you missed this news I invite you to take a look at the Euro Centrale nail polish swatches & promo images in my previous post. I decided to make this new post only because I discovered new promo photos with different displays of the shades included in this collection.

If earlier today I showed you the upcoming OPI Spring 2013 Mariah Carey Collection (info & promo images) now it’s time for new shades launching in spring and featured in the new OPI Euro Centrale Collection. Even though I’m not a big fan of OPI’s nail polish I’m happy to know that Romania is represented in this collection by two new shades called My Vampire is a Buff which is a very pale and nude shade probably meant to resemble vampire’s pale skin and Vant to bite my neck? a deep eggplant. I don’t know about you ladies but in my opinion as a girl who lives in the country where all the vampire stories were born I was expecting another shade, probably a bright red would have been a cliche but I would loved to see a dark bloody red with burgundy undertones or something more provocative but not this trivial nude posing as a victim (hmm…could this be it?!). The second shade looks a bit more interesting but overall the entire collection haven’t came up with some unique shades.
Classic meets contemporary with Euro Centrale by OPI for Spring/Summer 2013. Celebrating a region where history meets modern design, the collection’s twelve new nail lacquers offer a mixture of glamorous metallic hues; playful bright shades in periwinkle, aqua and pink; and creamy blues in indigo, midnight and aubergine.
“Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania make up an exciting new fashion hotspot,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “When visiting these countries, you’ll view Gothic churches alongside vibrant graffiti murals, blending two very different aesthetics. This fusion of old and new was also seen in runway looks during New York Fashion Week, where classic styles were reinvented with modern silhouettes and patterns.
“Euro Centrale boasts a wide variety of shades, ranging from pale nude to deep blue – and featuring everything from shimmering copper to aqua in between!,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “Whether you’re looking to spice up a black and white print, or add neutrality to a vivid brocade, these lacquers are designed to accessorize spring’s hottest looks.”
International Launch Date – 6 February 2013 at ULTA and dedicated beauty salons and retailers
