IMG_8128CR (Cairuo/Care Romeis) su kineski lakovi koje možete pronaći vrlo jeftino u većini kineskih prodavnica, kao i na uličnim tezgama. Ova bočica koštala me je 50 dinara, ali taj novac sam žrtvovala kako bih vam prenela svoje utiske i pokazala da su ovo lakovi koje ni pod tačkom razno ne smete kupovati, koliko god vam se pakovanje dopadalo.
 
CR (Cairuo/Care Romeis) are chinese nail polishes, which you can find very cheap in most Chinese stores here in Serbia, and also on street stalls. This bottle cost me 50 serbian dinars, but I sacrified that money in order to tell you my impressions and to show you that these polishes are really bad. Don`t buy them because you liked packaging, you`ll regret it.

Kineske lakove sam i sama kupovala dok sam išla u srednju školu. Bili su jeftini i od džeparca sam mogla da izdvojim za njih. Takođe, uvek su imali primamljive boje. Najčešće sam kupovala CR lakove na uličnim tezgama misleći da su turski lakovi, sve dok nisam primetila da je ono što nam prodaju sve – samo nije lak za nokte. 
Početkom srednje škole (2004. godine) nisam imala internet, tako da nisam mogla ništa da saznam o njima. Tek kasnije sam videla da se po kineskim radnjama mogu kupiti CR, Cairuo i Care Romeis lakovi (što je, zapravo, isti brend). Tada sam prestala da ih kupujem, jer nikada nisu naglašavali hemijski sastav na bočici. Pored toga, uvek su imali prodoran, neprijatan miris, što mi je sugerisalo da imaju štetne sastojke. Lak koji danas predstavljam je na etiketi imao sastav.

These nail polishes I bought for myself, when I was in high school. They were cheap and of spending money I could buy them. Also, they always had attractive colors. Most of them I bought at street stalls thinking they`re turkish, until I noticed that those are not good nail polishes at all. 

At the beginning of my high school (year 2004) I didn`t have the internet, so I could not find out anything about them. It was later when I saw that at Chinese stores I can buy CR, Cairuo and Care Romeis varnishes (which were all, actually, the same brand). Then I stopped buying them because they never emphasized the chemical ingredients on the bottle. In addition, it always had an unpleasant scent, which suggested to me that they have harmful ingredients. This polish has the label with ingredients.
 

Hemijski sastav / Ingredients:
Nitrocellulose, Acetyl tributyl citrate, Acrylates copolymer, Hectorite, Isopropyl alcohol, Alcohol, n-Butyl acetate, Ethyl acetate
 
Kako što možete videti u videu iznad, ovo nije lak, već nekakva polu-likvidna smesa koja se suši mat čim dodirne površinu nokta. Najbolji opis koji bih mogla da dam je kao da nanosite temperu na nokte pomoću vrlo loše četkice. Na sve to, četkica povlači lak i ostavlja brazde. Primetila sam da se oseća užasan miris dok se nanosi, ali nakon sušenja laka nokti mirišu na mirišljave parafinske sveće. Taj miris isparava nakon par sati, i hemijski miris ponovo počinje da dominira.
Lak je potpuna katastrofa. Sramota je što se dozvoljava da se ovako nešto uvozi u našu zemlju. Takođe mi je žao što mnoge devojčice (privučene lepim pakovanjem ili zbog nemogućnosti da kupe skuplje lakove) kupuju ovaj otrov i ugrožavaju sebi zdravlje udišući štetne sastojke.

As you can see in the video above, this is not a nail polish, but some semi-liquid mixture that dries matte as soon as it touches the surface of the nail. The best description I can give to you is like you apply acrylic paint on nails using very bad brush. Beside, the brush pulls polish and leaves deep lines. I noticed that it smells terrible while it is applied, but after drying nail polish smell like scented paraffin candles. The smell exhale after a few hours, and the chemical smell again begins to dominate. 
This polih is a complete disaster. It’s a shame that we allow something like this to be imported into our country. I’m also sorry that many girls (attracted by the beautiful packaging or inability to buy more expensive lacquers) buy this poison and threaten the health of yourself inhaling harmful ingredients.

Znam da me prati veliki broj tinejdžerki, zbog toga bih želela ovom prilikom da vas zamolim da ne kupujete ništa što je rasprostranjeno po uličnim tezgama i kineskim radnjama. 
Kod Kineza možete pronaći sve što vam je potrebno za manikir, 
ali lakove, molim vas, zaobiđite. 
Ako ništa, mislite na vaše zdravlje!

    Odličan post!!!
    Nikad u životu nisam vidjela ove lakove… valjda zato što ih nema u BiH, ali čim nešto nema naglašen sastav ja to ne kupujem. Lakovi su inače štetni, posebno oni sa formaldehidom u sebi… ali eto, kako hodati sa nokticima bez laka… 🙂
    Svasta mi zene trpimo zbog ljepote!
