As you may know I am a nail colour lover, so after some time looking for this curious new way of painting my nails, the Paint Can by Nailsinc, I had it finally in my bag a few days ago. Sadly the experience wasn't as good as I thought... it was easy, yes, but the results are not very pretty, I prefer the normal nail lacquer, best results and better colour.
Here is my experience...
First of all you have to paint your nails with a base coat, as always, to take care of your nails and don't damage it after painting them repeatedly. Then you use the paint can, with just one shot the colours are very faint...
So I recommend you to use it two times...
And then put a top coat on the colour...
In the instructions it says that it doesn't matter if you paint the skin near the nail, with some soap it will be removed quickly, but after 3 days of painting my nails, cleaned my hands a lot of times and showered myself, there's still gold on my skin!
So, if you are searching for a quick and good way to paint your nails, I don't recommend this method very much... try the normal nail lacquers, they are better!

Eddie Shoes is a private investigator with a curious mum and a little of bad luck referring to her clients... Ready for a funny case?
"Chava and I had come to an understanding. I kept her in my life as long as our contact was minimal and primarily over email. It was just enough to allay her guilt and not enough to make me crazy, so it worked out for both of us."
This is the first book I've read of Elena Hartwell, but I have to say I liked this funny and interesting case, I will keep a close eye to the new Eddie Shoes cases, I loved this character!
Eddie Shore real name is Edwina Zapata Schultz but she decided that her name wasn't enough interesting and change it to Eddie Shoes, that can show you Eddie's humour, she has a character and ambition too, but at the same time she has a big heart, ready to help any damsel in trouble, even if they turned toad after knowing them...!
While we enjoy this complicated case, we will start discovering the curious relation between Eddie and her mum Chava, it is quite special but at the same time it has tenderness and funny revelations.
If you are searching for a new series to read, I highly recommend you this book, it has humour, shots and a little bit of love?
Do you like dogs?
If you are lucky maybe you would win the book! Good luck! :)

Burned and Broken by Mark Hardie
Genre: Crime, Mystery
Source: Little, Brown Book Group
Someone is burned alive, a detective... did she know anything about the mysterious suicide girl or it was collateral damage? This is what DS Frank Pearson and DC Catherine Russel will have to resolve in this case. Enjoy!
"For Pearson there were two types of copper: the Timex cop and the Rolex cop."
Reading this book was like watching a movie, in the beginning we know that there's someone dying burned inside a car, and then we go back 4 days to understand what's really happening. And when we arrive at the present, we still see the last movements of the deceit. Like a movie, don't you think?
While in the first part we try to discover and connect all the characters, in the second and third parts we will read about the murder and the police investigation. A dark thriller with a lot of characters that would leave no one indifferent, I can guarantee it!
I missed some human interaction between the two police officers, they are police partners, but they don't seem to have anything else in common! Both of them with their own problems and thoughts and they keep their mouths shut, I think they need some partner therapy!
At the end of the book I didn't know how to process the endings, it's sad and hard, but it's still a murder, in these cases, the police see the suspects as a killers or humans? Quite difficult to decide in this case!
We know who is the killer at the end of the book, of course, but there are some questions that remain unsolved, I hope we will know the resolution in the next books!
What type of person are you?

Rupture by Ragnor Jónasson
Genre: Crime, Mystery
Source: Orenda Books
While Ari Thór is waiting to the quarantine of an haemorrhagic fever to be lifted up, he decided to take a look at an old case... but when a baby is missing he thinks that maybe the past is repeating again... Ready for Rupture?
"Ari Thór was starting to feel uncomfortable again. He remembered vividly how the ring of mountains encircling Siglufjördur had affected him when he had first arrived there, two and a half years before. The claustrophobia was still inside him, although he did his best not to let it get the better of him."
This is my first book of Ragnor Jónasson of the Dark Iceland series, the 4th on the series. I loved the paced style and how the author unwraps this chilling mystery between a quarantine and a mysterious kidnapping. He makes you feel the cold, loneliness and isolation in your bones!
I have to confess that I was addicted to the book since the first page, I didn't wanted to miss anything of the life of Ísrún the journalist or Ari, the detective. I finished the book in just 4 hours!
Ísrún and Ari have a quite an enigma in their hands... There was a suicide in an isolated house a long time ago, but now an old photo has appeared with a mysterious child on it, was him the murderer? It was quite interesting how Ari discovered all the secrets of the family in just one photo and the help of her Ísrún, I hope all the detectives are as sharp as Ari!
In this case we have some politics involved, and of course they are corrupted, liars and with a secret agenda... Is there any country with a fair government? It's sad and disturbing to think that the answer is no!
This is a book I highly recommend, one of those books that you don't want to end, it's a short story with some amazing characters that you will love since the first page.
Are you sure you want to visit Iceland?
