Summertime OOTD + NOTD

Today I'd like to show you my new manicure. For this one, I started with two coats of white on all nails and then I created a gradient using Golden Rose -Rich Color #08 and China Glaze -Sun of a Peach. On the two accent nails, I firstly stuck some chevron vinyls and then applied the gradient. Then, I unstuck them while the polish was still wet and applied clear top coat.

Pin-up nail art

Today I'll show you my first pin-up manicure. I have to say that Gia Makeup Blog was my main source of inspiration. After seeing her beautiful cherry nails and her posts about pin-up, 
I knew I had to do them!
I started with a coat of Oriflame -Night fever and after it dried completely, I applied some round french stickers like these here and applied two coats of Illamasqua -Alarm. I removed the stickers before the nail polish dried. Then I created some dots and lines using white nail polish and the brushes and dotting tools set from Born Pretty store. 
On my accent nail, I started with two coats of white (Flormar -M01) and then I stamped the cherry design from Cheeky Beauty's GA16 stamping plate. I finished with Golden Rose -Matte Top coat on all nails, but didn't apply it over the black part.
What do you think?


I attached the two pictures below so you can better see that the reverse french is shiny, while the rest of the design is matte. To achieve this effect, I used Golden Rose -Matte Top coat.

Review: THE ONE by Oriflame

In urma cu cateva zile v-am spus despre comunitatea internationala de bloggeri “THE ONE COLLECTIVE", in care m-am inscris si eu. Cateva zile mai tarziu, curierul mi-a facut o surpriza extrem de placuta, aducandu-mi un pachet substantial cu bunatati de la Oriflame. In pozele de mai jos puteti vedea produsele pe care le-am primit, atent asejate intr-o plasuta de cadou.

Pentru machiajul fetei: pudra Illuskin, corector si fond de ten cu SPF 20. Puterea de acoperire este mare in comparatie cu cea a altor produse de la ei, ceea ce m-a surprins in mod placut.

Pentru machiajul ochilor: trei farduri crema (de la stanga spre dreapta nuantele Golden Brown, Olive Green si Beige Pearl) si rimel pentru volum.

Pentru machiajul buzelor: doua luciuri de buze Power Shine in nuantele Trendy Berry si Rose Glacier. Pana acum am incercat doar rujurile Power Shine care imi plac foarte mult atat pentru stralucire cat si pentru puterea de hidratare. Nu stiu de ce nu mi-am facut curaj sa incerc si luciurile de buze, dar acum sunt convinsa ca sunt la fel de bune, avand aceleasi culori ce ies in evidenta intr-un mod placut si subtil.

Pentru machiajul unghiilor: oje ultra rezistente in nuantele Cappucino si Ni. Orchid.

Pentru manichiura de mai jos am folosit nuanta Ni. Orchid, aplicata in doua straturi. Apoi am creat un reversed french cu sclipiciurile Shimmer Polish -Tracy si SEPHORA by OPI -Come to Pappa-razzi!. In final, am aplicat un top coat transparent. Ce parere aveti?

In concluzie, sunt foarte incantata de toate produsele primite. Colectia 'The One' by Oriflame este cu siguranta un cadou ce nu trebuie refuzat de nicio femeie din Romania, oferindu-ne o gama variata de produse profesionale la preturi foarte accesibile. Puteti gasi mai multe detalii despre 
THE ONE pe site-ul Oriflame.
Le puteti gasi in fiecare catalog Oriflame, la preturi promotionale. Am atasat cate o fotografie cu nuantele disponibile si pretul fiecarui produs din catalog. Ojele se lasa inca asteptate - vor fi disponibile doare in cataloagele urmatoare. 

Ati incercat deja noile produse din colectia The One?

MoYou London stamping plates

Today I'll show you a manicure I created with my new MoYou stamping plates. I started with two coats of China Glaze -Sun of a peach and then stamped the sweater design - that's how I like to call it - from MoYou Festive Collection 04, using white nail polish. I finished with clear top coat. What do you think?

Here's everything I got with my order at MoYou.co.uk:
- Festive Plate Collection 04
Scholar Plate Collection 02
Large Size Stamp & Scrapers

I was extremely impressed to receive the order after only 4 days, considering I am international customer. Moreover, I really enjoy the packing - each plate is packed separately in a themed cardboard and has a protection foil which has to be removed before using it. I feel the need to mention that the foil was extremely easy to remove, considering my past experience with those protection foils you would almost break your nails when trying to get rid of them.

Now onto the stamper. I've been wishing for a stamper like this one and more exactly for a squishy stamper. Until now, my favourite stamper was the double Konad stamper, but from all the stampers I've ever tried, I honestly like this one the most. If you are looking for a soft and squishy stamper, believe me that this is your best option. 
The plastic scrappers are also brilliant. I have tried other plastic scrappers before, but they just wouldn't remove properly the excess of polish, so I stuck to my Konad scrapper for years. It was really the best, but it scratched all my stamping plates (you can see that in the comparison picture below). It is now the case with MoYou's plastic scrappers, which fully remove the excess and also protect the plate.

As you can clearly see, the MoYou designs are bigger than both Konad and Bundle Monster designs. So I had the chance to try the Shrinking your image procedure which I saw on Youtube. It worked great with the squishy stamper. If you watch the video, you'll see how to make a large design smaller so as to fit your nail and that's what I did for this manicure. Below is an example and you can also see that the colour of a regular (non-stamping) nail polish is more intense when the design is shrinked.

On the other hand, I was firstly a little skeptic about this stamper because the big rubber is white. I thought I wouldn't be able stamp white designs with it, but I was definitely wrong. See it for yourselves in the picture bellow.

All in all, I am completely satisfied with my order and I hope I'll have the chance to try more of their plates in the future. You'll see another manicure with the other plate soon.
