Saturday's Theme- 2. Pantone Colours

Hello hello !

I will begin today's post by saying I can't believe I am doing this....I haven't posted anything in more than half an year (shame on me) and probably wouldn't have if it weren't for my dearest friend Oana who practically pushed me to do it.

A couple of days ago I posted on Instagram the nail polish I will use for my next manicure...the coincidence was that the TPA group  had planned a "green" theme for today's post, so, here I am with the green manicure.

As you may already know, this year's colour is green - GREENERY- as set by Pantone every year.

Before showing you my manicure, I need to mention that fate played a hard game today and made me choose the same nail polish as another great blogger, Andra - see how she wore the same colour Here (the matte version)

I love Pantone's choice for this year's colour(s) - i think it's a great tribute to nature.

To be honest, green is not my colour when it comes to nails or clothes but I love nature so that's enough reason to have it on.

For today's manicure I used "Waikiki" by Barry M.

I used 3 coats for complete coverage, coats that have dried very quickly (yay) and I topped that with a glossy top coat even if the nail polish is matte.

Here it is : Greenery .

I hope this won't be my first and last blog post of the year :)

BornPrettyStore vinyls !

Hello ladies!

I've been missing from my blog for a long time...but I am back with a new post today.

A tiny review for you : Vinyls from BornPrettyStore.

I've seen these kind of vinyls a long time ago on a lot of blogs and I've always wanted to try them out. I finally got the chance to.

They have a big variety of designs to chose from, here, that's why I had a hard time choosing one.

In the end I got one with some interesting patterns.

Today I am going to show you a manicure I did using the one on the right - I don't even know how to describe the design, but one thing is for sure : I love the way it looks.

This was the first time I used these type of nail stickers, and I found them very easy to use.

After I had my black base completely dry, I took one sticker and put it over my nails in the desired position. (tip: before sticking it to your nail, stick it somewhere on your hand - this way, you make sure the vinyl won't pick up your nail polish, due to a very strong adhesive)                                                                                                              
After I got the sticker in the position I wanted, I got a sponge and the nail polish. ( I used a textured nail polish, because, from what I've seen and known, they work best with this kind of polish)

I used the sponge and dabbed the nail polish over the sticker- after I finished, I quickly removed the vinyl, before the nail polish was dry.

The nail polish I used for the design was Showgirl Chic from Sally Hansen's Gen Crush collection.

For some more "glam" I added some studs to my ring finger.

In my opinion these vinyls are a very easy way to taking a dull manicure to the next level.

You can find the vinyls I used HERE, at the special price of 2.30$. You can also use my BornPrettyStore 10% discount code.

March's Nails Challenge- Pastel


Today is Saturday again we have another manicure for the monthly challenge : PASTEL . 

I really liked the idea...until I had to choose the nail polishes for this and I realized I don't have a lot of pastel shades, and, since I don't have that many I decided to combine them all in one manicure. 

Here it is : 

I have to admit that doing this manicure took some time but I am really happy with the end result - what's better than a colourful mani ? 
Even if I wanted to make this manicure with only one brand of nail polish I couldn't have done it. I think this is the first time ever when I use so many colours and also brands in one manicure. 

My inspiration was this colourful cake. Let's see what inspired the other talented ladies :

    Hello hello !

    Those of you who follow me on different social medias have already seen this manicure, but I want to talk about the tool I used for this manicure!

    I recently got an interesting dotting tool from BronPrettyStore which I tried when doing this look.

    There's this dotting tool with exchangeable heads - which in my opinion is a SUPER DEAL!
    Why get more tools when you can have only one that does the job?

    The tool has 5 heads with 5 different sizes.
    Along with the dotting tools we have a pen head I wasn't able to try because you need a special ink-like solution which I don't have, but I've seen being used by a talented girl I know HERE .

    Why not...glitter?

    Hello lovelies !

    Hope you are having a good week start - I had a busy day but I really had to show you something <3 nbsp="" p="">
    Recently I bought some nail polish from a blog sale ...and along side others ...I got a beautiful blue glitter from Orly, called ANGEL EYES. (after I saw how it looked on the nails I understood why they named it that way)

    I am not that much into regular glitter...but this one had something special.

    Hope you like it , because I fell in love with it :D

    2 coats of Orly Angel eyes  - over this gorgeous blue from Golden Rose. 
     2 coats were enough for a perfect coverage and perfect shimmer.

    The drying time is normal- not fast nor slow either.

    I've had the nail polish on for 3 days now and it still looks perfect- no top coat added (the shimmer in the pics is all the polish, no top coat) and also, I've had a full dish washing and household work 3 days. So this manicure wasn't 'protected'.
    I have to say I am pretty pleased with the way this is looking after 3 days - no chipping either! (yay)
