intro

Hi and welcome! This is Black Saliva, a style focused blog written by Viivi Vanessa R.

I'm a 24 year old girl from Helsinki, Finland and this blog is my own little space on the internet where I can share my thoughts, outfits and write a bit about my life and stuff that I do.

For first timers, I'd say take a quick look at ABOUT ME and get to know me a little before browsing through my posts.

Anyway, I hope you like my blog and leave me a comment.
Enjoy your stay!

Drooling Over Your Polish

GUYS. I HAVE SOME VERY EXCITING NEWS FOR YOU ALL. You might know about this already if you've been following me on other social media platforms, such as Instagram and Twitter, but now.. it's time to make it official!

You probably know that I'm absolutely crazy about almost everything nail-related, and if you don't... well you know now and you can only imagine how friggin' excited I am about this!! One of my long-term dreams has been to get to design my own nail polish and... IT FINALLY CAME TRUE!!

idkuva
I wanted the name of the polish to be somewhat related to my blog's title and 'white saliva' or 'gold saliva' would've been super lame so I came up with this instead! It's kinda funny and cute, ain't it? :-D

I was at work one day and Satu started talking about a custom nail polish collection we might have a change to do with this great indie polish brand - Dollish Polish, and I immediately agreed it would be a great idea. SO, we started thinking about it right away and decided we would ask some of our bloggers to collaborate with us and have them each create their own dream polish.

And well, I might be working for CesarsShop and I might not exactly fit into the beauty/nail blogger category, but I am a blogger as well and nails are a big part of me and this blog. SO I BUTTED MY WAY IN, haha. The other fabulous bloggers we asked to join the project are Charming Nails, Saara Sarvas, Polishaholic, Better Nail Day, Wasting Lifestyle and Sonnela.

L to R: Charming Nails, me, Saara Sarvas, Polishaholic, Better Nail Day & Wasting Lifestyle and Sonnela.

So. If you were given the task to design any kind of polish, what would yours be like? Well, for sure you don't want something that you know already exists, right? After that you'll probably start thinking what kind of formulas you prefer. I mostly like cremes and glitters and that's pretty much it. A creme polish would've been boring to do, so it was easy to decide I would go with glitter!

The next thing I asked myself was; what kind of glitter? And in what colors? I had two ideas. I could mix all kinds of pretty colors together, or I could go with a more simple version and pick two colors. I decided to go with the two-color version and picked my favorite colors for it. WHITE and GOLD.

This was the first picture I saw after giving Dolly my ideas for the polish. It was perfect right away!

I wanted the polish to have a clear base so it could be used as a glitter topper or on it's own. I first was thinking about picking one of the colors as the "main color", but ended up going 50% and 50% in the end. The nail polish has white hexagon glitter in 4 different sizes and gold hexagon glitter in 3 different sizes and the final product is so goddamn pretty and sparkly and exactly how I imagined it would be!


We finally recieved these polishes at Cesars last week and I decided to do my nails with it right away. I continued with the white x gold theme and this is how they turned out! The other polishes I used, were Essie Blanc and art liners in white and gold glitter.


I love how they turned out, what do you think?

AND THE BEST PART; This nail polish collection will be sold exclusively at www.CesarsShop.fi starting tomorrow at 18:00! So if you're drooling over mine (or somebody else's) polish, be sure to check it out! The price is 14,80€ for a bottle and they're 15ml each.

Sadly, we can only ship inside Finland due to the finnish customs that suck and don't allow shipping nail polish outside our country. Sorry about that.

SHOP THIS COLLECTION HERE!
