The year started with lot of work and stress and this is why I needed a quickly done manicure. For this reason I used some new Born Pretty Store water decals - BPY09. I liked a lot the outcome and wore this design for about a week. I am curious about your opinion.

Hello ladies, how are you?
Today I am going to show you a mani I made last year in December. I wanted to were a pastel, light shaded nail art and this is why I choose Essence - Sweet as Candy which is very new in my stash and Maybelline - Lookout Lemon 22. I recently received as a surprise gift from the Born Pretty Store a silicone stamping mate and thought it is a good idea to try it.
Before I used the silicone mat I cleaned it with some alcohol. After it I used a thin layer of top coat on the darker nail image and let it dry, then I stamped on it with the silver foil Barry M nail polish, a swirly image from my new Moyra Geometry stamping plate. After painting the nail polishes on the stamped image I finished it with a layer of top coat and waited until it dried. I picked it up easily with the help of a tweezers and placed it on my nails. The mate worked perfectly, I had no problems using it.
The mat is for table protection but it serves for doing stamping decals or any kind of nail art practice! The size of the mat I received is 28x21 cm. It came in a handy cardboard tube, so anytime after use I can put it away in safety.
Unfortunately the nail art didn't came out as I wished, the color combination with the silver stamped image does not work so well together and the essence nail polish is extremely sheer, so it was not the best chose for this stamping decal.

Last year in November I took part at the 5th Beauty Bloggers Meeting organized in my hometown Cluj. As each year so many lovely ladies came together, and we spent a few hours talking about blogging and how to make a business from this hobby and became a professional. Our conversation was very informative and I felt relaxed and enjoyed a lot to hear about the experiences of bloggers who already have a business.
This event was organized by four amazing ladies you may already know: Anca, Gabriela, Cleopatra and Julia. They made huge efforts to make a memorable evening and in my opinion they succeeded!
We had a dress code like each year and this time it was gray&gold time. So, of course my nails were appropriate for this evening :) Some of you may already have seen this mani on my INSTAGRAM account @funandi.

At the end of the event the girls surprised us with lots of goodie bags full with cosmetics. The sponsors of this event were: Farmec, Melkior, Himalaya, Henkel, Solaris, ELF, Bioderma, Oriflame, Anstasia Beverly Hills, 7th Heaven, Elmiplant, Atlantica and B.U. I was super lucky and won a make-up session from Gabriela Popescu Mak-Up and I am already anxious to go to her!
