Born Pretty Chameleon nail polish

Hi,
Today I'll show you two nail polishes that I recently got from Born Pretty store. I was looking at them for a long time, but don't know why I never put them in my shopping bag. I'm in love with chameleon nail polish colours and how they look on the nails because I feel like you can't get bored with them so fast. So let me tell you more about these polishes, because they come in a set. One of them is chameleon and the other one contains chameleon flakies. I applied both of them over a coat of black nail polish and applied Seche Vite top coat for some extra shine at the end. Just watch how cute are those reflexions! What do you think?

Essence - Love me like you do

Hi,
Today I'll show you a very simple manicure that I like a lot. I think it's because of this beautiful base colour that I totally fell in love with. It's Essence 67 Love me like you do and I applied two coats of it. What I liked the most about it was the shiny finish. If  I let it like that, I wouldn't have needed top coat for extra shine. Still, I decided to add something more, so I went for a silver glitter nail polish which I applied only on the tips of my nails using a nail art sponge. I finished with Seche Vite top coat. What do you think?

Dresses for the perfect wedding

I think we can all imagine the stress a bride has to go through to make everything perfect for the wedding. And when we think about the perfect dress we tend to only think about the wedding dress, but there are also the bridesmaids' dresses and the flower girls' dresses and everything has to look amazing. I've recently came across an online store selling occasion dresses and thought this might be helpful for the brides out there. I'll share some of my favourites with you in case you need inspiration. 
They each come in 31 different colours so you can customize them how you like. I honestly am so over all those classic bridesmaids dresses that you see at every wedding. It's time for a little change at this chapter. 

I also found the sweetest thing on earth! Just stop for a second and admire this cute flower girl dress! Isn't it just perfect? Believe me, you'll want this girl at your wedding. 

For more beautiful dresses, just go to Dresshopau. They offer free shipping to Australia and have some eye-catchy prices!

Bijuteriile Soufeel

Astazi vin cu o discutie lejera de duminica si o sa va vorbim despre un subiect care ne incanta pe toate: bijuteriile. In urma cu aproximativ doi ani am decis sa investesc intr-o bratara si am vrut sa aleg ceva care sa ma reprezinte, o bratara pe care sa o pot personaliza. Oscilam intre Pandora si Soufeel si nu eram sigura ce sa aleg. Exista multe produse asemanatoare dar si produse unice fiecarui brand. Produsele Soufeel erau mult mai accesibile ca pret si la fel de frumos lucrate ca si cele de la Pandora, doar ca pe vremea aceea nu exista site Soufeel in Romania, ci doar site-ul international unde livrarea dureaza in jur de cateva saptamani. Asa ca mi-am achizitionat bratara si talismane Pandora, dar in timp am adaugat pe ea si talismane Soufeel, deoarece a aparut site-ul autorizat Soufeel in Romania. 

De curand am plasat o comanda pe site si vreau sa va arat ce minunatii mi-am luat. Ambele talismane pe care le-am ales sunt din categoria Prieteni si familie si pur si simplu le ador. Vin insotite de un certificat de garantie si conformitate care atesta autenticitatea si faptul ca bijuteriile sunt lucrate din argint 925. M-a impresionat atentia la detalii si finetea cu care sunt lucrate si ma gandesc sa plasez o noua comanda cat de curand. 
Avantajul pe care il are Soufeel fata de Pandora este faptul ca bijuteriile pot fi comandate online. Produsele au venit prin curier, in doua zile. In cazul in care produsele nu va plac in totalitate, le puteti returna legal in ambalajul original in decursul a 14 zile. Dar eu va promit ca o sa va indragostiti de ele in prima clipa. Iar preturile mai mult decat atractive si design-urile unice o sa va traga cu ochiul. 
Daca aveti deja o bratara Pandora la fel ca si mine trebuie sa stiti ca talismanele sunt compatibile, au aceleasi dimensiuni si arata foarte bine pe bratara. Daca nu aveti inca una dar va ganditi sa va achizitionati asa ceva, puteti sa va uitati aici pe site pentru modelele disponibile. Au atat bratari fixe, cat si flexibile. 
Dar sa nu mai lungim povestile, o sa va las cu niste poze, pentru ca nu e asa, o poza face cat o mie de cuvinte?

Urmatorul talisman pe care o sa il vedeti este de fapt un set de talismane matching, pe care il puteti imparti cu cea mai buna prietena, asa cum am facut si eu. Asa veti avea ceva care sa va aminteasca mereu de legatura voastra speciala. Poate fi si o idee minunata de cadou. 

Iar pentru voi, cititoarele blogului meu, am si o mica surpriza care stiu ca o sa va placa.

Sweet pink nail art

Hi,
As we didn't have much snow this winter, I decided to bring some on my nails. It's still cold and January so I think this manicure is suitable for the moment. I'm definitely a winter person and I love everything about it - even the cold weather - so I think I could wear a snowflake on my nails almost anytime. 
For this manicure, I used El Corazon - Matte Effect 111 (pink) as a base colour. Then I added some ILNP - My Private Rainbow (L+S) for the subtle holographic effect. I stamped the snowflake design on my ring finger from Konad's m59 stamping plate using white stamping nail polish. I added a white pearl in the middle of it to make it even more delicate and elegant. I think that pearls will be a huge part of 2018's nail art trends because why wouldn't they? They already are present on every fashion item and I don't think nails will make an exception. And this can only make me happy because I've loved pearls since forever. I finised my manicure with Seche Vite top coat for some extra shine and protection.
What do you think? I'd love to hear your opinion on this new pearl trend!

What do you need for the perfect gel manicure at home?

We all see those beautiful gel nails everywhere and I'll tell you what exactly do you need to create them at home. You'll need practice and a little patience and you can learn everything from Youtube tutorials. Just remember that the key to beautiful nails is practice (a lot of practice actually).
So what do you need?
1. The first thing you need is a LED lamp to cure the nails in between the steps. 
2. Nail files to prepare your nails and also for removing the gel.
3. Wooden sticks for pushing back the cuticles.
4. Gel primer - you need to apply this after you filed the surface of the nails and removed the shiny layer. You'll apply it when the nails are dull and it will add a sticky layer on the nails. You don't need to cure this in the lamp. 
5. Gel base coat - apply a thin layer of this and try not to touch the cuticles at all. Cure it in the lamp.
6. Now it's time to apply the gel nail polish colour. Normally, you'll need to apply two coats of it and cure it in the lamp after each coat. This is the fun part because you can choose any colour that you like or you could play with the colours. The possibilities are endless. 
I found some really nice colours on Pink Gellac. I'll share below some of my favourites. 


7. The final step is gel top coat. You can go for matte or shiny finish. It also needs curing in the lamp. Now it's the moment when you can play with nail accessories such as studs, rhinestones, 3D decorations or anything else that you have in mind. You can apply it on the wet top coat, before curing it and eventually you can add an extra coat after that for sealing them in. 

And that's about everything. It doesn't look so hard, does it?
If you don't know where to buy your supplied from, I've recently discovered a website selling nail care products & nail accessories for gel manicures and they have plenty of nice options. Prices are also accessible and they ship almost anywhere in  the world. Check them out!

Sweet pink and green tropical manicure

Hi,
Today I felt the need to paint my nails in something more colourful, more joyful or even something tropical and I remembered that I saw this cute pink palm trees pijama from ASOS a few days ago and decided that it was going to be my inspiration. I started with a base coat and then applied two coats of Rimmel - Sweet retreat. Then I stamped the leaves design from MoYou Nails Tropical 12 stamping plate using Konad's green stamping nail polish. I finished with Seche Vite top coat for some extra shine. What do you think?

White and nude gradient nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you the first manicure I made in 2018. I decided to go for something simple, yet eye-catchy, so I decided to start with a nude base colour. I applied two coats of Rimmel - Princess Pink and then created a snow effect gradient using a sponge with the nude polish and Madam Glam - Snow white. On the accent nail, I applied only clear rhinestones on the entire nail. I stuck them using clear top coat and at the end, I applied another coat of it to seal them in. I used Seche Vite top coat for some extra shine on all nails. What do you think? Would you wear this manicure?

Is it safe to paint your nails while pregnant?

What about painting your nails while pregnant? I get asked this question a lot so I did some research. There are plenty of myths about pregnancy and different aspects and painting their nails is something all the future mothers question.

The answer is yes, it's totally ok to paint your nails with regular nail polish during pregnancy. However, you might want to stick to painting your nails yourself and stop using gel nails, especially in the first trimester.
Keep in mind that acrylic paint is safer to use during pregnancy than nail art gel! However, none of them is recommended in the first trimester. 


Doing your nails at the salons is dangerous because there are fumes that evaporate from the different substances they use there and they are toxic for the baby.

You can restart doing your nails with gel only after the half of the second trimester and only if you respect some conditions:
1. Make sure that the salon is well ventilated. There should be a ventilation system just above the working table.
2. Always ask your technician if the products they use are safe for pregnant women.

If you want to be 100% sure that nothing can affect the baby, an alternative would be using water based nail polish. This is a kind of nail polish which is usually safe to use by young girls. This type of paint is unlikely to penetrate the skin and they have less chemicals in their composition.

During my online research, I came across Check pregnancy, a website that covers a large area of subjects which are related to pregnancy and motherhood. 
On their website, I also came across an article about how to style boys' hair and found it really interesting and fun to try for the talented mothers. Check out their website, you will find plenty of good articles there!
