Ugly sweater inspired nails

Today I'll show you my new Christmas soak off manicure inspired by the popular ugly sweaters. I simply love those, so I decided to put them on my nails, too! 
I created this soak off manicure using Polish to Gel Transformer from Sensationails and I mixed it with Essence - 180 It's raining men. This is an amazing invention that helps you transform any regular nail polish into gel polish. The recipe is simple: you have to mix the equal number of drops of both the regular polish and the transformer in the small mixing pot that comes from Sensationails. I cured it for 60 seconds at the led lamp just to be sure. It was the first time using it and I was amased. It works perfectly! 
Of course, I applied gel base coat before and gel top coat from Cupio after for a full soak off manicure. I stamped the designs from Born Pretty's Christmas stamping plate L007 using Kaleidoscope white stamping polish.
What do you think?

Stamping soak off manicure

Today I'll show you another soak off manicure that I created using Born Pretty products. I started with Gel Base Coat from Cupio which I cured for 30 second at the led lamp. Then, as a colour coat, I applied Born Pretty's Purple fantasy. I cured each coat for 60 seconds at the led lamp as the soak off polishes from Born Pretty usually need more time cu cure perfectly. Then I stamped some designs from BP-77 stamping plate using white stamping nail polish and Summer mints from their Warm tea series. I finished with Gel Top Coat from Cupio. What do you think?

Waist trainers for weight loss

Do you wish for a six-pack or at least a flat tummy? Then I'm here to show you the
best waist trainers for weight loss. Your first question might be how these things work. It's pretty easy actually, you just have to wear it for as long as it's possible and if you want quicker results, you should also exercise wearing it. You will sweat in the abdominal area and this way you will burn some fat. During exercise, the compression stimulates thermal activity in your core which increases perspiration, allowing toxins to escape.
The first one that I'm going to show you is adjustable. It has 3 rows of thicked square hooks so you can try different levels of compression. The 25 steel bones keep you in the best posture which is flexible and durable and can bend easily but recover quickly to the initial position. The high elastic and the 100% latex provide more pressure on your abdomen and rises the temperature to burn fat better. This one is best for reshaping post-pregnancy. It is suitable for wearing all day long and improves your posture for an elegant look. It's definitely made for curves.

There are also plus size waist trainers. This one has a front zipper that keeps a tight fit around your waist to achieve long lasting waist cinching effect. It is also made of latex which helps with the waist sculpting and shaping. The extra elastic sticker straps easily adjust and secure the belt, making sure that it is fastened tightly around the abs.
You can find many more waist belts on Loverbeaut, so make sure to check out their website. They're of a real help in the fight with weight loss.

Perfect marble nails with Born Pretty products

Today I'll show you a manicure that I'm very happy I've finally been able to realise. And that's because I've been looking for a stamping plate to help me create the perfect marble effect on my nails for so long and I finally found the one. It's the L079 stamping plate which I got from Born Pretty store along with some other products that I'll show you today. 
For this manicure, I started with two coats of Rimmel - White with love and then I stamped the marble design twice: once using turquoise stamping nail polish from Born Pretty and the second time using a rose gold metallic polish which was actually not special stamping polish, but has a very strong colour.  

Don’t forget that if you want to order something from Born Pretty you can use my code for a 10% discount: MKAK31.

The last thing I'd like to show you is my new Nicole Diary transparent nail stamper. This is my first see-through stamper and I'm in love with it! It helps a lot when placing the design on the nail and I can't believe I didn't get it sooner.

Why do new glasses give me a headache?

Quite a few persons who wear glasses are very astonished: Why do I have a feeling of nausea, dizziness and headache when I wear my newly-purchased prescription glasses? As the glasses have problems, if they are not corrected in time, when our eyes adapt to the new defective glasses, it means that a harm has been done to our eyes. Then, why do I have a feeling of headache and nausea while wearing my new glasses? How to alleviate the headache caused by glasses?

Reason for headache caused by glasses and method for alleviating the headache:
1. Adaption to new prescription
When you buy new prescription glasses, the oculist may remind you that new glasses give you a headache, nausea even with correct prescription. The reason is that your eyes need a certain period to adapt to the new prescription. It means new glasses adjustment period called by oculist. How long do eyes take to adjust to new glasses? Usually, it takes 1-2 days for your eyes to be used to the new glasses. If you still have a headache after 2 days, it is may be caused by your wrong prescription. A common mistake may lie in wrong measurement of pupillary distance. How to measure the pupillary distance in a correct way? Please refer to the tutorial: How to Measure Your Pupillary Distance? In case of significant change in prescription or change of progressive lens, it will take 1-2 weeks for you to adjust the eyes. If you still have a headache after more than two weeks, it means your prescription is wrong. In this case, you need to make another optometry or seek help from another optometrist. 
Note: Eye fatigue, temporary visual distortion and blurred vision may occur during your adaptation to new glasses. It is a normal phenomenon. These conditions will disappear within 2 or 3 days. For blurred vision problem, please refer to the tutorial: What is blurred vision and how to cure it?
2. Different styles of glasses frame
3. Eye fatigue
4. Headache with glasses wearing for the first time
If it is the first time for you to wear your glasses, your oculist may remind you that you need to take a period to adapt to your new glasses, and you may experience headache, nausea or fatigue in the first few days. Some people may also experience mild dizziness or sensitivity, but such a condition usually occur in the first few days. In addition, your ears, nose and temple must be used to the new device, especially when you wear glasses for the first time. You can try to wear glasses for several hours at a time in the first week to help alleviate your discomfort.
5. New lens material
6. Dry eye syndrome and headache
How to adapt to new glasses?
Method 1:
Ask your optician to adjust and optimize the fitting before you go home with your new glasses. Fine tuning can help you eliminate common discomforts arisen from new glasses, including adapting to your nose and ear back.
Method 2:
How long does it take for your eyes to adapt to the new glasses? If you have monovision lenses, only with correct reading vision or distance, it may take 1-2 days for your eyes to adapt to the new glasses. However, it may take longer time for you to adapt to multi-view lenses, such as bifocal lenses, triple-focus lenses or progressive lenses.
Method 3:
When wearing new glasses, if you have a headache, itchy or painful eyes, or dizziness, please take off the glasses until the symptoms disappear.
Method 4:
Don't put on the old glasses, so you can easily adapt to the prescription of the new glasses. The bent frame or scratched lenses will make the adjustment period more challenging.
Generally, wearing glasses should be comfortable, and it shall not take a long time for adapting to new lenses. In case of discomfort, blurred vision, headache or dizziness last more than two weeks, please seek advice from your optometrist.
Different styles of glasses frame
Shifting from a rectangular frame to a round frame, or vice versa, or from a larger frame to a smaller one, such a circumstance is called the headache from glasses frames. Your eyes may need some time to adapt to the new frame. Even if the new frame does not affect your vision, it will take several days for them to adjust their perception of your face. If you buy a frame with incorrect size, you need to adjust the frame so that you can wear it in a more comfortable way.Eye fatigue
Eye fatigue tends to cause headaches. Moreover, eye fatigue is usually not accompanied by nausea or vomit. After long time of reading or sitting in front of the computer, crystalline lens have to adjust (adapt) frequently for seeing clearly. After a few hours, the eye fatigue will occur, leading to headache. In this case, you should take off your glasses, close your eyes for a rest or look into the distance. Ensure the blood of your eyes to be smoothly flowing.
New lens material
If you buy new glasses with lens material different from old one, new lenses such as polarization, photochromism or blue blocking lens technology may take some time to adapt for new lens adopting polaroid, phototropy or blue blocking lens technologies.dry eyes headache
In case of dye eye syndrome, your eyes may not adapt to the new prescription glasses and is likely to cause a headache. Dry eyes will make you more sensitive to light, causing you to squint, while continuous squinting may lead to muscle tension headache. As a rule, when you feel tired with your eyes, you must take care to have a rest. The best way to rest and adjust is to gaze into the distance, look out of the window, go to the balcony to overlook the distant sight, and view green plants, which is very helpful for relieving the eye fatigue and making an adjustment.

Personalized name necklace

I think we all remember the very popular gold "Carrie" necklace from Sex and the city and I think that at one point, we all wished for a necklace engraved with our name. It's true, the "Carrie" necklace is a statement. Sarah Jessica Parker revealed at some point that she still has Carrie Bradshaw's most prized possession and that she values it very much as it reminds her of the days in New York with Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte. 
Sarah Jessica Parker Reveals She Still Has Carrie Bradshaw's Most Prized Possession

Similarly, there are some bracelets with the same concept.
