Mermaid nail art

Hi,
Today I'll show you my fish scale manicure which I easily created using the mermaid stencils from What's up nail art store. I started with a coat of Glitter Gal - Serpent black and then applied a coat of clear nail polish and let it dry. After placing the sencils, I applied Gosh - 540 Ocean and Shimmer Polish - Tracy using a sponge. Then, I removed the stencils and applied clear top coat. On my index and ring fingers, I applied some pearls and shell studs from Born Pretty store. I only fixed them on the nail using clear top coat. What do you think?

By the way, don't forget to use my 10% discount code MKAK31 with any order on Born Pretty store.

Happy nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you another old manicure that I never got to post. For this one, I started with a coat of white nail polish on each nail and then created the colourful gradient. I applied pink, yellow and green polish on a sponge and then transferred them on the nails. After that, I stamped the happy faces design from Bundle Monster's BM-304 image plate and finished with clear top coat. What do you think?

Moroccan nail art

Hi,
Today I'll show you my Moroccan manicure which I easily created using What's Up Nails stencils. I started with two coats of Rimmel - Tangerine Tent on all nails and then applied clear top coat. After letting it dry, I stuck a stencil on each nail and then applied No7 - Totally Teal and Golden Rose - Holiday #58 using a sponge, so as to create a beautiful gradient. After that, I unstuck the stencils and applied clear top coat. You can find the Moroccan stencils here on their website. On my ring finger, I applied a green rhinestone and then applied some small golden studs around it. What do you think?

Turquoise animal print nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you an old manicure I never got the chance to post. This is a really easy to do mix and match. The dark blue polish is Rimmel - Adam n Eve it and the turquoise one is China Glaze - Too Yacht to Handle. On my middle finger, I applied the two nail polishes over a white base, using a sponge. The animal print on my ring finger was created freehand, using a thin brush. At the end, I applied clear top coat to seal in everything.

I'd also like to show you a manicure I did on a friend's nails a while ago. All was painted freehand. The nude nail polish is Rimmel - Let's get nude. What do you think?

Mesaj important adresat tuturor bloggerilor

...si nu numai!


Aceasta postare se adreseaza tuturor persoanelor care petrec un numar mare de ore in pozitia sezand. Auzim adesea spunandu-se ca nu este bine sa petrecem mult timp stand pe scaun, dar ne este efectiv imposibil sa punem sanatatea pe primul loc. Multi dintre noi lucram la birou sau ne petrecem timpul in bancile scolii pentru o perioada de 6-8 ore pe zi. La acestea adaugam timpul ce il petrecem servind masa, timpul in care ne verificam mail-urile, timpul ce il petrecem in masina/autobuz, timpul ce il petrecem la televizor si, bineinteles, timpul pe care il petrecem pe o terasa, relaxandu-ne seara. Daca suntem bloggeri, mai adaugam cateva ore ce le petrecem editand poze, cautand informatii pe care sa le introducem in noile articole si, nu in ultimul rand, timpul in care ne cautam cuvintele potrivite pentru a veni mereu cu postari originale. Astfel, in majoritatea zilelor ajungem sa petrecem un numar de 10-12 ore pe scaun. Timpul maxim recomandat de a sta pe scaun intr-o zi este de 3 ore. 

Un studiu din 2012 ne-a demonstrat ca statul prelungit pe scaun ne reduce considerabil durata de viata. Dar asta nu e tot. Stilul sedentar este principala cauza a durerilor de spate, creste riscul pentru bolile cardiovasculare, duce la obezitate, conduce spre dezechilibre metabolice, favorizeaza aparitia hemoroizilor si a varicelor si lista poate continua.

Cum neutralizam efectele nocive ale acestul obicei prost care a devenit stilul nostru de viata? Este important sa ne ridicam de pe scaun si sa facem cativa pasi la fiecare ora, sa alegem mersul pe scari in favoarea liftului, sa ne facem timp pentru cel putin o jumatate de ora de sport in fiecare zi. 

Si totusi, ajungem acasa obositi la sfarsitul zilei si simtim nevoia sa ne asezam. Desigur, ne-ar prinde bine un masaj, dar poate nu avem timp pentru o sedinta intreaga sau poate nu avem resursele necesare pentru a-l face cu regularitate. Asa ca, ceea ce va propun este sa investiti in ceva ce poate fi o solutie pe termen lung, si anume un fotoliu cu functie de masaj. Am gasit cateva pe ImportatorScaune.ro, iar preturile sunt destul de accesibile daca luam in considerare beneficiul indelungat ce ni-l aduce un astfel de fotoliu.


Ce mi-a placut in mod deosebit la fotoliile de mai sus este faptul ca picioarele pot sta ridicate. De ce este acest lucru important? In momentul in care presiunea din interiorul vaselor creste prea mult, peretii acestora cedeaza si apar varicele. Stand cu picioarele ridicate, intoarcerea venoasa este facilitata, presiunea din interiorul vaselor scade, iar durerea este diminuata. 

Si din moment ce petrecem atatea ore la birou, este important sa alegem un scaun cat mai confortabil, in care corpul poate adapta o pozitie cat mai corecta. In acest sens, va invit sa vizitati site-ul ScauneOnline.ro si sa accesati categoria scaune de birou. Eu am ochit deja cateva modele si ma gandesc serios sa-mi schimb vechiul scaun. 


Nu mai stati pe ganduri si investiti in scaunul ce vi se potriveste! In timp, corpul vostru va va fi recunoscator.

Kiwi nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you another easy to do freehand nail art. I started with two coats of Golden Rose #18 as a base colour for my manicure and then created a white dot in the middle of each nail. After that, using a thin brush I created some white radial lines and then added the small black dots to represent the seeds. Finally, I sealed in everything using clear top coat. 

I'd also like to show you a manicure created on a friend's nails. I stamped the palm tree design from MoYou London's 12 plate. What do you think?
