Spring nails and a wonderful road trip

Today's post will be a little bit different because I will include some information's and pictures from a wonderful Botanical Garden that I visited with my family at the weekend. So I warn you this post is picture heavy!

But first I will show you my manicure that I've created with these wonderful flower blossom water decals combined with a dark and mysterious color by Leighton Denny - No Comment. This polish has a deep plum undertone, superb depth and electrifying shimmer. It is an autumn, winter color but combined with these decals I found it glamorous and elegant and appropriate for spring too!






The Jibou Botanical Garden Vasile Fati is located in Salaj county Transylvania, 1 hour distance from my city, Cluj-Napoca. It has a surface of 25 acres and has been arranged round the Wesselényi Castle, that was build in 1779 by count Wessélenyi Miklós. Unfortunately the castle it is unused and can not be visited, but the place and the garden it is magical. This castle is the biggest baroque structure in Romania.

In 1970 the place, it became an independent facility as an education and research area for biologists and an area for the public.





The garden has greenhouses, an aquarium, a zoological park and a beautiful Japanese garden. The greenhouses have a lot of tropical and subtropical plants, all sort of orchids and cactus's too. The dome called 'AQUARIUM' accommodates all sort of fish species in 23 small and big aquariums. This beautiful place has also a zoological park with deers, does, boars and an aviary.










In the way home we stooped at a natural reserve called Dragons Garden, but the pictures from there I will show you in my next post. I will leave you with my mani and thank you for stopping by!

    1. Multumesc. In Galati nu am fost niciodata, dar stiu ca este mai frumoasa decat cel din Cluj. Diversitatea de plante nu este asa de mare ca in Cluj, dar spatiul si serele sunt fabuloase! In Cluj la orchidee nici nu se poate intra :(

  15. Crede-ma, m-a uimit splendoarea acestei manichiuri! In mod sigur e potrivita pentru primavara, eu m-am gandit la festivalul ciresilor in floare, al japonezilor! :) O delectare a fost sa o admir...

    Multumim si pentru imaginile minunate de la aceasta Gradina Botanica, nu stiam nimic despre ea, am aflat informatii noi!

    Pupicei, Andrea!

      Gradina Botanica din pacate nu este foarte mediatizata si multi nici nu o cunosc din cauza ca este plasat intr-un orasel foarte mic. Merita de vizitat!

    1. I am totally aware that the decals would go better with a pink or a lighter shade, but the idea was to show the faces of spring, it can be warm but it can be cold too, and this way the decals pop out better, because of the darker plummy combo.
      Thank you for your comment!
