30 minutes manicure and a weekend trip

The last week was very stressful and hard for me, this is why painting my nails became impossible. But one night I had 30 minutes to do my nails, so I opted for a very simple summer nail art. 



I took two of my unused polishes from my stash - KIKO 389 Mint Milk and Catrice - Million Brilliance - 08 My Big Green Weeding. The Kiko polish is a bright light mint green shade, perfect for summer, the formula is a little bit denser, so it almost covers in one layer, but I used two, because of the visible streaks. My middle finger I topped it with one layer of the gold/green glitter polish from Catrice. The outcome looked to simple for me, so quickly I took the gold stamping polish form the Born Pretty Store and stamped on two of my nails a pattern from the BP-L 005 stamping plate.

I liked very much the outcome of it, even if I had some issues to take pictures from this mani in artificial light conditions.






Fun and easy to apply tattoos, perfect for summer time. You can find them here


At the weekend we traveled to the Corvin Castle (Castelul Huniazilor) wich is a Gothic-Renaissance castle in Hunedoara. It is one of the largest castles in Europe and figures in a top of seven wonders of Romania. We loved the grandiose castle, the towers, bastions and the inner courtyard, we felt like transported back in time.



















On our way back to home we stooped at The Fortress of Deva (Cetatea Devei) which is located in the city of Deva on top of a volcanic hill. We used the funicular to access the top of this hill. That was quite fun for the children!






I am glad we made this trip, we had a lovely time and we were lucky too that the weather was perfect! If you travel to Romania, just take a few hours and go to this wonderful places!

  4. Great mani including the finger tattoo. The castle looks so impressive, I'm a fan of medieval times and I would have enjoyed visiting this one. At least virtually, I did!

  21. Ma bucur ca iti place manichiura. Pozitionarea tatuajelor la locul potrivit este mai grea, din cauza hartiei care nu este transparenta si nu permite vizibilitatea ca atare. Dar, este OK si astfel! :))

    ReplyDelete
  22. Multumesc.
    Da, castelul este impresionant si grandios in acelasi timp. Mie mi-a placut foarte mult. Cetatea Devei este sub restaurare, dar sunt sigura ca in cativa ani buni, o sa arete si mai bine!

  23. Koszi. A tetko, max 1 napig birja extrem helyzetbe, marmint mosogatas, kezmosas stb.

    Most is vannak bizonyos helyek ahol restauraljak a kastelyt, de az evek soran sok minden megvalltozott, valoban. En nekem nagyon tetszett, kar, hogy maga a varos borzalom allapotban van!

  24. Thank you Paola. Yes, the tattoo is a new trend that I really like!

  36. Credema, in realitate arata si mai bine oja KIKO. A fost extrem de greu sa o fotografiez si sa redau cat de cat aproape de realitate nuanta. Ma bucur ca iti place manichiura mea.
    Cetatea Devei este sub restaurare dar daca ai drum catre Hunedoara sa nu ratez Castelul Huniazilor! Te pup.

  49. I made a manicure and pedicure study course and maybe that helped to be a little bit more quickly. But I am quite meticulous and this is why I am not the quickest when it comes to make the nail of others!

    The trip was amazing!
