Butterfly manicure

You already know that my favorite color is green and I relay had mood for it so I used a P2 Volume Gloss nail polish - 510 scheme architect. I am talking about a mint green shade which dries quite quickly and gets opaque in two coats. The polish has a wide brush which makes the application easy but, I have to mention I found the polish a little bit runny. I combined the polish with an older one from my stash, which I have never used it until now called Dot's FAN #545, which I completely love. Again it is a green nail polish full with round black and white glitter particles. On my ring-fingernail I painted freehand a butterfly with acrylic paint combined with the above mentioned nail polishes.

I like how the combination and design turned out even if I have a lot to work on my freehand painting skills. Please avoid looking at my dry cuticles and hands, the weather change is harmful for my hands and nails even if I use hydrating cream or not. My nails are much shorter too because they became sensitive. 

Thanks for stopping by and tell me your opinion about this spring manicure!

Total Temptation

Ohhh yes, I will talk about temptations about Maybellines Total Temptation mascara. You don't know it yet? Well, here are a few things that I have noticed since I use this product in my daily make-up routine. 

Firstly, I love the matte pink tube in which the mascara comes because it feels great in the hands and it does not slip away. The brush is thick and fluffy to touch each lash even the short ones in the inner corner. The formula of the product is very pigmented in black and what I noticed that it is quite creamy and rich, maybe because of the coconut extract with what it is enriched. Because of this the product has a tropical, subtle scent which I quite like at application. As you can see in the photo my lashes have a lovely thickness and volume. This mascara needs no several application during the day, it can be applied just with a few swipes and the formula adds and instant lift and density to the lashes. 

Those of you who like to have waterproof mascaras, sorry this is not one of them but I can assure you this one is resistant and does not come off so easily from the lashes. 

This is a mascara that is perfect for a natural look. Did you tried it? 

Besides the mascara Maybelline Romania sent me in the cute pink box a designer t-shirt too, with the inscription TEMPTATION by Laura Lazar. Thank you, I like it a lot!

Stamping plate review

I received last year a stamping plate BP-L078 from the Born Pretty Store which patterns are so versatile and pretty that I already used it several time but I didn't had the time for a detailed review. But time has come and here it is with two manicures.

As you can see in the pictures the plate is the usual rectangular one with the plastic back and rounded edges and of course the cardboard sleeve. This one contains 17 patterns that can be used and mixed in different color combinations suiting your needs and imagination. The patterns are big enough even for longer nails. The images are well carved in I had no problem with the transfer. I just need a good silicone stamper head because my bellowed marshmallow one starts to break down when I need it the most :( 

In the first manicure I used a lovely green as a base for my leaf stamping image from China Glaze - Starboard. I pared it with a glittery gold polish. The leaf pattern is double stamped with white and a foil gold polish. 

In my second manicure I used blue, it is not my absolute favorite color but now I than I have the mood to use it. I totally curious which mani do you like better.

Maybelline Master Highleters

I am sure some of you have already seen on my Instastory what a beautiful package I received from Maybelline Romania with two highlighters. One is  the Master Chrome Highlighter and the other one is the Master Holographic Highlighter. 

Master Chrome Highlighter - is a compact powder with a warm metallic effect which can be applied with a brush or simply with the fingertips, thanks to it's light texture. It blends smoothly into the skin and it is perfect for any kind of skin tone in my opinion, but I have to admit it looks the best on medium darker skin. After application the face looks subtle and natural in artificial light and in the sunlight two. The metallic shimmer gives a fresh looking glow to the skin. The powder is quite pigmented so it requires just a touch of it, so this quantity will last for a long, long time for me. I use this highlighter almost daily and I simply love it's peach/rose gold tone and I must admit it will be hard to find one that will top this ones quality!

Master Holographic Highlighter - Well, when I saw the word holographic I couldn't believe my eyes. I am a big fan of holo nail polishes but I didn't knew how could look a holographic highlighter on the skin. I have to admit I was skeptic about it. The texture of the powder is almost the same with the chrome one, creamy. Applied to the skin it is a little bit chunkier because of the white base of it and even if it is well blended in it lives more a sparkly, iridescent effect versus a holographic one. Though I like the pink, blue and also purple sparkles on my skin I think this highlighter would look better as an eye shadow. You all now I have a medium darker skin and I think this product would look better on a lighter skin tone. 

Now I am curious which one do you like better or, if you used them which one worked for you?

Thank you Maybelline Romania for this great package! I appreciate it 
and I am glad that I could test both of them!

Golden sparkle

In my previous post you saw that I have used a soak-off nail polish from the brand SUGAR that I have received from the Born Pretty Store for review. Well, I have one more, this time a light sparkly polish with a golden scattered glitter effect called #702. In my opinion this polish is meant for layering on colored nail polishes on which the golden sparkle will pop up! I tried it on black and white as you can see in the manicure bellow, I used just one layer on each base color. I simple love how beautiful it looks on white, it gives the nails an elegant touch and on black the golden particles are much visible and bolder. I haven't used this polish on it's own but surly it would need several layers to achieve a good looking manicure.

Pink love

Hello ladies. Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have seen my message that I have the flue and am I not in the mood for nails or anything else. But I was a little bit better and I downloaded the photos and put together this post.

I received for review from the Born Pretty Store some soak-off nail polishes and one of them is a bright pink one. It is from the brand Sugar and has the #609 which is new for me and I was a little bit skeptical first that it won't work. All my fears disappeared when I applied it in just one coat on my nails and I already got a vibrant shade. For a better opacity I painted the second layer and finished it with a top coat. The polish came in a black 7,5 ml bottle and has the usual round brush. It applies easily on the nails, the texture of the polish is perfect and I had no issues at curing either. I loved the result I obtained. 

If you like this nail polish you can find it HERE and other 16 different nail colors  from this brand and you're welcome to use my bellow seen discount code if you make shopping on the Born Pretty Store site.

Beauty Bigbang sticker review

I wanted to make this review post form a while but now it is the moment in my opinion because you will see flower stickers and we all are waiting for spring, I thought it will be perfect. I received this lacy like flower pattern stickers from the Beauty Bigbang site. Actually it is a set of 8 different patterned stickers with a dimension of  85x110 mm you can see all of them separately bellow.

Before I am showing you both of the manicures I made I want to mention just a few words about the product. The stickers are all nice and versatile but extremely hard to use. They are ticker and being on a bigger sheet it's hard to cut them out exactly for the size of the nails, especially if you want to cover them all. After putting it on the nails it sticks immediately because it has a strong glue on it and afterwards it's hard to remove the excess from the skin because the acetone does not melts the sticker away.Regarding that the nail surface is quite curvy, it's hard to stick it without making a crinkle - at least I couldn't manage to do it. So that's being sad you will see two manicures I made, the first one with two accent nails using one of the patterns covering the whole nail surface. Here you will notice the crinkle I talked above, even my top coat could not handle it to cover. 

In my second manicure I made just one accent nail by cutting the sticker much smaller but covering with top coat still made the crinkles and on the tip after one day it started to lift.

I think these stickers are fantastic for decorating transparent phone cases or even to use them in planners and coloring them afterwards, I don't know, it can be used for many things in my opinion. If you like them and have many ideas to use them, the link to the product is HERE and you can find them on the Beauty Bigbang site in 4 different colors. You're welcome to use my bellow seen discount code for any of your purchase on the site
