Rainbow nails

No, no I don’t want rain it was enough the last night one, although the heat is sometimes unbearable, but I am attending to a nail art competition hosted by two talented girls, Sangy & Puja, and this is one of the participating manicures. Find more details about the contest here.
At this manicure I used rainbow colored polishes and I applied it in the proper order with a sponge. I completed it with the glitter polish from Moyra. I think it is a fun looking manicure, right? I wish you a wonderful weekend.
Nu, nu doresc sa vina ploaia a fost de ajuns cea din aceasta seara, desi caldura este cate o data insuportabila. Voi participa la un concurs organizat de doua fete talentate, Sangy & Puja si aceasta este una dintre manichiurile participante. Despre concurs gasiti mai multe detalii aici.
La aceasta manichiura am utilizat oje in culoarea curcubeului si am aplicat-o in ordinea corespunzatoare cu un buretel. Am finalizat-o cu glitter argintiu de la Moyra. Mi se pare o manichiura vesela, nu? Va doresc un weekend minunat.

Pink mixture

I recently bought a pink shirt and because of this I decided to paint my nails in this color. I took all my pink polishes and put them all together and a layered manicure idea popped in my head.
On the base I used the pink nail polish from Flormar which I received in the Pink Box from June. I find that this nail polish is too transparent, I applied two coats and I was still not happy with the intensity of the color and I think it does not suits my skin type, which is a bit darker! The second nail polish I used is the pink Medusa isabella and after that I applied the pink from Natty Orkide. When I saw my nails I was not happy with the result and that is why I drew a thin line of a dark pink polish from Golden Rose and a silver one with a thin brush. I finished it with the top coat from Konad. This is the final result.
Mi-am cumparat recent o bluza roz si din cauza aceasta am decis ca imi pictez unghiile in aceasta culoare. Mi-am scos toate ojele roz si automat mi-a venit idea de a creea o manichiura in straturi.
Am folosit la baza oja roz de la Flormar pe care am primit-o in Pink Boxul lunii iunie. Mi se pare o oja prea transparenta, eu am aplicat doua straturi si tot nu eram multumita cu intensitatea culorii, consider ca nici nu se potriveste cu tenul meu mai inchis la culoare! A doua oja folosita este rozul Medusa isabella, peste care am aplicat rozul intens de la Natty Orkide. Cand mi-am vazut unghiile nu eram multumita de rezultat si din aceasta cauza am tras o linie roz inchis de la Golden Rose si un argintiu cu o pensula foarte subtire. Am finalizat cu top coat de la Konad. Acesta este rezultatul final.

I saw a picture on Facebook and I’m so mad that I didn’t saved it: a woman has in her hands a few pink polishes with a similar shade and under the picture appears the text "they are not the same, they are just similar". Well this text fits very well to this manicure, these pink polishes are not the same just very similar to each other :)) .
Am vazut pe Facebook o imagine si imi pare enorm de rau ca nu am salvat-o, o femeie tine in maini cateva oje roz si scrie sub ea “Nu este acelasi, doar se aseamana”, pai se potriveste foarte bine la aceasta manichiura acest text. Ojele nu sunt acelasi doar se aseamana :)) .

Gray day

In my collection are about 6 gray polishes and this time I used two of them to create this manicure. I painted with a light gray (Rapsodi 335) on the base and with the sponge I applied a metallic gray polish (Gabrini 304)  and a white one for the tips. I finished it with a glitter polish from  Moyra. In what color combination do you use your gray polishes?

In colectia mea sunt aproximativ 6 oje de gri si de data aceasta am folosit doua ca sa creez aceasta manichiura. La baza am pictat un strat de gri aproape mat, peste care cu ajutorul buretului am  aplicat un gri metalic si la varfuri alb. Am finalizat cu oja Moyra cu sclipici colorat. Voi in ce combinatie de culoare folositi ojele gri?

Ugly Tuesday manicure

I had in my collection a gray crackle polish that I bought for a long time but I've never used it, like I knew that the quality of it it’s bad. This nail polish landed in the trash because it's useless. Like you see in the pictures the polish does not crack on the nails it melts and looks horrible. Furthermore I do not have to say anything, just maybe, avoid this product! Or do you have a good experience with this crackle?
Am avut in colectia mea de oje un crackle gri pe care l-am cumparat de multa vreme dar nu l-am utilizat. Parca stiam ca nu este de o calitate buna. Aceasta oja a ajuns in cosul de gunoi pentru ca nu este bun de nimic. Cum vedeti si in imagini nu crapa pe unghii ci se topeste si arata oribil. Mai mult nici nu am ce sa spun, doar sa ocoliti acest produs! Sau aveti voi o experienta buna cu acest produs?

Fish egg manicure

I showed you last week that I bought some new polishes and nail decorations. Well, today I will show you one of those polishes and the purple micro beds, I made finally my first caviar manicure. Hope you enjoy this mani it's extremely easy to make, the idea is to choose a shade of a nail polish that matches perfectly with the micro beads and then press them in the polish painted on the nails. I only applied the micro beads on my ring finger, their quality is not so good, after a work day they stated to fell off but the nails don’t look bad. How do you find it?
I have to mention that the photographs were made ​​after a working day and not exactly after I finished the manicure. Most of the images you see on the blog are done after one work day, I usually do my nails at night, when my daughter is asleep and the next day when I get home from work I take pictures of them.
V-am aratat saptamana trecuta ca am cumparat oje si decoratii pentru unghii. Azi o sa vedeti una dintre ojele respective si micro beadsurile mov. Sper sa va placa aceasta manichiura, este extreme de simplu de realizat, trebuie doar sa alegi o nuanta de oja care sa se potrivesca cu micro beadsurile, pe care le presezi pe stratul de oja de pe unghii. Eu am aplicat doar pe degetul inelar micro bedsuri. Calitatea acestora nu este extrem de buna, se cam tocesc dupa o zi, dar nu arata urat nici astfel. Cum vi se pare?
Mentionez ca fotografiile au fost facute dupa o zi de lucru si nu chiar dupa ce am finalizat manichiura. Majoritatea imaginilor pe care le vedeti pe blog sunt facute dupa o zi, adica imi fac manichiura noaptea, cand fiica mea doarme si urmatoarea zi dupa masa cand ajung acasa de la lucru imi fotografiez unghiile.

Yesterday I had a magnificent evening at the Roxette concert, I felt like a teenager again, but weekend in coming and I understand that the weather is warming up again.  I made a cool drink, perfect for hot days and nights! I hope you like sangria because that is about this recipe. I drank the best sangria in a trip to Gran Canaria. The wine was filled with pieces of exotic fruits and now after some years I remember the sweet and sour taste of it. My recipe is with seasonal fruit.
 Ieri am avut parte de o seara magnifica, la concertul Roxette, m-am simtit din nou ca in adolescenta. Dar ne apropiem de weekend si am inteles ca se incalzeste din nou vremea. Ca sa ne racorim am creat acesta bautura foarte gustoasa. Sper sa va placa sangria, ca despre acesta este vorba. Eu am baut cea mai buna sangria intr-o calatorie in Gran Canaria. Vinul era plin cu bucatele de fructe exotice si acuma dupa catva ani imi aduc aminte de gustul ei dulce acrisor. Aceasta reteta este cu fructe de sezon.
Ingredients: watermelon, cantaloupe, 1 lemon, mint, sparkling wine
Ingrediente:  pepene rosu, pepene galben, 1 lamaie, menta, vin spumant

Clean the fruits, remove the pits, cut it into cubes a large amount of fruit, and put it in a bowl with the mint and sparkling wine. Leave it in the refrigerator about 5-6 hours or more and serve it with a lot of ice. Have a cool and wonderful weekend!
Curatati fructele, scoateti samburele, taiati cubulete o cantitate cat mai mare de fructe, puneti intr-un bol impreuna cu menta si adugati vinul spumos. Lasati in frigider cam 5-6 ore, sau chiar mai mult si servitil cu multa gheata.  Sa aveti un weekend cat mai racoros!

Party nails

Today is a very special day I will go after my work with a friend to the Roxette concert. I grew up with this band music and now I'm lucky to attend this event in my hometown. I have not prepared a special manicure for this day, but I created something that is in tone with my joy. I used a black nail polish for the base and with the dotting tool I made thin stripes and dots with three polishes: yellow, mint green and neon green. I finished it with a top coat.
Azi este o zi foarte speciala ma voi duce dupa masa cu o prietena la concertul Roxette. Am crescut cu muzica acestei trupe si acum am norocul sa particip la acest eveniment in orasul meu natal. Nu mi-am pregatit o manichiura speciala pentru acesta zi, dar am creat ceva care sa fie in tonalitate cu  veselia mea. Am folosit o oja neagra la baza peste care am picurat si tras dungi cu ajutorul instrumentului de punctat in trei culori, galben, verde menta si verde neon. Am finisat cu un top coat.  

I will leave you whit a Roxette song, enjoy!
Va las cu o melodie de la Roxette.

New polishes and decorations

I found in a store new polishes and I couldn’t resist and bought five pieces and also a few nail decorations: gold foil, dark and light purple micro beads and large crystals. I cannot wait to try them!
Am gasit intr-un magazin oje noi din care nu am rezistat si am cumparat cinci bucati si cateva decoratii pentru unghii: folie aurie, micro beads mov deschis si inchis la culoare si strasuri mari. Abia astept sa le incerc!

In the Farmasi store I bought a treatment that can be used as a base coat and it promises that it will strengthen and maintain the nails. I will come back with the results!
La standul magazinului Farmasi am cumparat tratamentul care se poate folosi si la baza manichiurilor care promite intarirea si mentinerea lor. O sa revin cu o parere despre acest produs.

My week with Marilyn

I was inspired by a movie I watched in the weekend - My Week with Marilyn. The movie is about the true story tolled from Colin Clark, an employee, the third assistant of Sir Laurence Olivier who was documenting the tense interaction between Marilyn and Olivier on the set during the production of The Prince and the Showgirl. The actress who plays Marilyn Monroe is Michelle Williams and this role fits her perfectly. If you have not seen the movie yet I recommend you, I personally loved it! And here is my manicure, I think I do not have to explain more about it, I used a white nail polish for the base and applied a layer of colored glitter from Moyra and on my ring finger I painted Marilyn’s portrait with a black acrylic. 
Am fost inspirit de un film pe care l-am urmarit in weekend - My week with Marylin. Este o poveste adevarata, Colin Clark, un angajat, asistentul lui Sir Laurence Olivier care documenteaza interactiunea tensionata dintre Marilyn si Olivier pe platoul de filmare in timpul productiei The Prince and the Showgirl. Actrita care o interpreteaza pe Marilyn Monroe este si Michelle Williams si i se potriveste acest rol la perfectie. Daca nu ati vazut filmul vi-l recomand, mie personal mi-a placut foarte mult! Iar manichiura mea este urmatoarea, consider ca nu trebuie sa va explic multe despre ea. Am folosit o oja alba la baza peste care am aplicat un strat de glitter colorat Moyra si cu un negru acril am desenat portretul lui Marylin pe unghia degetului inelar. 

I leave you with the trailer of the movie.

Ruffle manicure

I start this week with a cheerful, colorful manicure. Anyone can do this mani called ruffle with the help of a dotting tool. I chose 6 polishes, white for the base and the rest in order that you can see in the picture and  using the large end of a dotting tool, I added a row of connected dots that goes all the way across the nail. I repeated this action with all the chosen polishes and the result is very colorful one that draws the attention! How do you like it?

O sa incep saptamana cu o manichiura vesela, foarte colorata care m-a bine dispus cateva zile. Oricine poate sa creeze acest timp de manichiura numita 'ruffle', adica plieuri, cu ajutorul unui instrument de punctat. Eu am ales 6 oje, dintre care alb la baza si restul in ordinea in care il vedeti in fotografie si am punctat cate un rand, unul langa celalat din fiecare nuanta. Rezultatul este unul foarte vesel care atrage atentia! Cum va place?

Cantaloupe ice cream with fresh mint

The hot weather destroys me! Yesterday some clouds begin to gather in the sky we were happy like children, an it rained, but today it's going to be an another hot day! That's why I try to refresh myself and my family with homemade ice-cream. This time I made a cantaloupe ice cream with pieces of fresh mint picked from the garden.
Caldura ma distruge! Cand incep sa se adune norii pe cer ne bucuram ca niste copiii, ieri in sfarsit a si ploat, dar azi continua canicula! Din aceasta cauza incerc sa ma racoresc cu inghetata pregatita acasa. De data aceasta am incercat o inghetata din pepene cu bucatele de menta proaspata culese din gradina.
Ingredients: 1 kg cantaloupe, 3 tablespoons sugar, 2 sachets of vanilla sugar, 2 egg yolks, ½ cup milk 1 vanilla yogurt, 200 ml whipped cream
Ingrediente: 1 kg pepene, 3 linguri zahar, 2 plicuri zahar vanilat, 2 galbenusuri de oua, jumatate de pahar de lapte, 1 iaurt cu gust de vanilie, 200 ml frisca lichida

 Clean the cantaloupe and put it in a blender and mix until it forms a liquid content of it. Meanwhile, mix the milk, sugar and yolks of two eggs and place in Bain marine. Stir until it forms a cream. Allow to cool slightly then add the vanilla yogurt and cantaloupe. 
Curatati pepenele si puneti zeama intr-un blender. Mixati-l pana se formeaza un continut lichidos din ea. Intre timp amestecati laptele, zaharul si galbenusul a doua oua si puneti in bain marine la foc. Amestecati pana se formeaza o crema. Lasati putin la racit dupa care adaugati iaurtul si pepenele lichid.

Make the whipped cream and mix it together with the other ingredients. Put this mixture in the freezer and after about an hour stir it once and continue to freeze it. 
Bateti frisca si amestecat-o cu crema de pepene. Puneti aceasta compozitie in congelator. Dupa aproximativ o ora mai amestecati o data si continuati congelarea. 

Serve the sweet ice-cream with a few threads of fresh mint it will give him a great taste! Enjoy.
La servire puneti pe inghetata cateva fire de menta proaspata, ii va da un gust exceptional inghetatei dulci! Pofta buna.

New nail and hand care products

I went into a natural shop and logical I found some goodies for my hands and nails! I searched for a very moisturizing hand cream but I ended up buying a great product that is a fat cream, like grease, from the Alps Fresh cosmetics. It can be used for the hole body, but I apply it just on my hands. The description says that it is perfect for the cold season or after sun exposure for dehydrated skin. I use it now, in the summer because I spend a lot of time in the pool with my child and of course in the sun too and my skin and cuticles need deep hydration. This product contains vitamin E that moisturizes and increases the resilience of the skin. How you see in the pictures is a very fat cream but an efficient one! Price: 2,20 euro/250 ml
Am intrat intr-un magazin naturist si era logic sa imi gasesc ceva bunatati pentru unghiutele si mainile mele! Am cautat o crema de mana puternic hidratanta dar am ajuns sa cumpar acest produs minunat care este o crema grasa, gen vaselina cosmetica de la Alpi Fresh. Se poate utiliza pe intregul corp, dar eu il folosesc doar pe mana. Pe cutie scrie ca este potrivita in perioada rece sau dupa expunerea la soare, pentru pielea deshidratata. Eu il folosesc acuma vara, pentru ca stau foarte mult in apa (bazin) si soare, iar pielea mea si cuticulele au nevoie de hidratare puternica. Acest produs contine vitamina E care hidrateaza si creste capacitatea de rezistenta a pielii. Cum vedeti in imagini este un produs foarte gras dar eficient! Pret: 10 lei/250 ml

Another product that surprised me is REGETIS nail care oil that contains apricot kernel oil, vitamin A and vitamin E. Until now I bought these two vitamins from the pharmacy and applied it separately on my nails but this version is much easier. The description says that is great for nails deeply damaged, with peeling problems. I have no such problems but I know that these two vitamins strengthen the nails and I apply it once weekly for maintenance. Price: 0.87 euro.
Un alt produs care m-a surprins este REGETIS, ulei pentru ingrijirea unghiilor care contine ulei de catina, vitamina A si E. Pana acum cumparam vitamina A si E separat din farmacie si le masam pe unghii dar varianta aceasta este mult mai comoda. Pe cutie scrie ca este exceptional pentru unghiile profund deteriorate, exfoliate. Eu nu am probleme de genul dar stiu ca aceste doua vitamine intaresc unghiile si din aceasta cauza folosesc acest produs saptamanal o data pentru intretinere. Pretul produsului 4 lei.

In another store I found a product from Kallos a solution to remove cuticles. It is very easy to use, I apply a small amount of the liquid on the cuticle and after a few seconds it can be removed with a bamboo stick. Price: 1,56 euro.
Intr-un alt magazin am gasit Solutia pentru indepartarea cuticulelor de la Kallos. Este foarte usor de utilizat, se aplica pe cuticule lichidul cu pensula normala si dupa cateva secunde se poate indeparta cu un betisor de bambus. Pret: 7 lei

In the weekend I was at the flea market and surprise, I found these acrylic colors at a bargain price of 0.45 euro. I cannot wait to try them!
Sfarsit de saptamana am fost la piata de vechituri, si surpriza am gasit aceste culori acrylice la un pret de nimica, 2 lei. Abia astept sa le incerc!
