L’Oréal - Granite effect

I continue to use my new polishes from my stash. Today I am going to show you L’Oréal Paris Color Riche - 890 Masque Lover - Granite effect. This is a textured polish with a gray base that is full with tiny white and black micro particles that gives that granite like effect. The formula is easy to use and covers in two coats. It sparkles a little bit, the surface of the nails is grainy so the effect is proper for the name of the polish!

I stamped on two of my nails a swirl looking pattern from a MoYou London plate and added two small black rhinestones on it. Tough the stamping didn't came out as I wished, I like how it looks on my nails!

Do you have this polish? How do you like it?
Did you tried some other special effect polishes from this collection?

Nail Team Challenge: Negative Space Nails

As you can see in the title today we have negative space nails. This is a design that I really love to wear, so I was super exited that Madalina, Frumusete la pret mic, choose it! 

Last year in October I had a post about the new nail trends in 2015 (you can find it here) and there I showed you a negative space mani that I wanted to recreate. So, this is the time for it. I made it a little bit different tough, let's say it has a touch of Andrea in it :))

I used two beautiful polishes: GOSH - 549 Holographic Hero and Le petit Cliché - 86-60-86. 

GOSH - 549 Holographic Hero is a polish that I wanted as I saw it. So,the lovely Oana, who knew it sent me as a surprise gift for me. I was super thrilled and I hardly waited to try it. GOSH is a UK brand that is not available here, so of course I wanted it very much! The polish is a silver micro-shimmer polish with not a strong holographic effect in normal light conditions. The formula is thick enough to cover well in one coat, but two coats are needed for a good coverage. The interesting part for me was that it dries to a satin finish, in the pictures it is not visible because I used a glossy top coat. Overall it is a beautiful polish and I want to thank you Oana for being so kind and send it to me!

Le petit Cliché - 86-60-86 - it is a  dark toned blue polish with a little purple in it and it has a blue/purple shimmer that has a beautiful reflection. The formula, flows nicely on the nails and it is simple to apply. I think this is very elegant polish that can be used in various occasions.

I absolutely loved and enjoyed to were this mani and in the future I am going to play more with the negative space designs because I love the effect of them on the nails.

Let's see what the other girls made for this theme:
I am very exited for the next theme too! 

As you can see I made some changes to my blog, of course I didn't finished it yet, I need more time for it. Until then, I will use this layout and my old watermark. Sorry for this mess. How do you like this new look?

Have a fantastic weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Green juice

These days I really needed a lot of vitamin's because I caught a cold and I don't have any energy because of it. So, today I am going to share with you, one of my favorite drinks, full with vitamin C.

All you need is, two apples, 4 kiwis, a hand full of celery (apio) and a small piece of ginger. 

Put all these ingredients in your juicer and enjoy a healthy and energizing drink!

Please share with me some interesting juice combinations that you usually drink!

Thank you, have a great day!
